Carrying in the Cold in Jackson Hole

My family and I spent Christmas in a cabin just outside of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. We had a beautiful white Christmas although it was freezing.

The other day, I decided that the numerous 1911 holsters in the box wouldn’t work for me and I purchased an outside the waistband “belt slide” holster made of leather. When I […]

Gun Golfing

Gun Golfing

I hate golfing. To me, it’s a terribly boring sport that I have no interest in. One time, friends talked me into playing a round of golf and I was ready to smash my club into a thousands pieces after just a few holes. However, there’s a new “sport” I love and I’m calling it […]

Will Your Response Get You Killed?

What will you do if you’re awoken in the middle of the night by glass breaking and then the sound of footsteps in your house? My response is to immediately grab one of the flashlights on my nightstand and open up the rapid access safe also on my nightstand that contains my Sig P226. Once […]
