Pick the one right tool – Buying and using the right gear for the job

One of my favorite movies of all time is No Country For Old Men.  I’m not a critic and I’m not going to try to be one by describing the movie with nerdy terms that I don’t understand.  I just really love the movie.  Javier Bardem plays Anton Chigurh, a murderous psychopath with a very protestant work ethic.  He will not stop until he feels the job is done, which basically means killing just about every one on the cast list.  There is one scene where Chigurh is questioning the management decisions of his employer and he says something that has stuck with me ever since the first time I saw this movie. “You pick the one right tool.”

You pick the one right tool for the job, and the job will get done right.  Now I am all about improvisation.  Under pressure I’ve put together some truly imaginative solutions to problems that I probably wouldn’t believe if someone told me.  But improvisation should only ever arise from necessity, from shit actually hitting the fan, from the moment at 2am on the side of a remote highway when your radiator hose has split open and all you have is a sock, some bubblegum and a condom.  Masters do not rely on improvisation.  Masters pick the one right tool for the job.

Guns For Everyone – AR15 Giveaway – Fundraising Initiative

Guns For Everyone Fundraising Campaign

guns-for-everyone-troy-ar-giveawayWell, they’re at it again. Guns For Everyone is launching a new initiative to be able to offer even more Free Conceal Carry classes to residents of Colorado who want to get basic and advanced pistol training.  They are also giving anyone that donates a chance to enter a sweet Troy AR15. Donation levels start at just 5 bucks and they also have additional levels that come with some sweet prize packs.

The goal for Guns For Everyone is to raise enough money to help with opening a storefront in Colorado Springs so they can have a dedicated space to offer their classes.  In Colorado you are required to take a basic pistol safety class as a requisite to obtaining a conceal carry license. Guns For Everyone offers these classes for free and solely relies on the generosity of students to donate what they can. This system helps break the cost barrier for citizens to legally obtain the license required to carry a firearm.

Our mission is to train and educate as many people as we possibly can in the safe and ethical use of firearms for self defense. We conduct all of our training for FREE!

Please take a moment to watch the video below, and if you feel compelled they would greatly appreciate any donation and if you aren’t in a position to donate please share the message.

Our goal is to raise $5,000 by December 15th, 2015. To help us achieve this goal, every donation of $5 will receive a Guns For Everyone bumper sticker, as well as be entered to win a Troy Industries AR-15.  Other exciting prizes are also available at different donation levels!

G-Code INCOG For M&P Shield

First Impressions of the INCOG Holster by G-Code

G-Code INCOG Holster For M&P Shield

I’ve been on a holster hunt for all of my pistols for a couple years. There are some I’ve found and love and others that end up in the holster graveyard. I recently pulled the trigger (pun intended) on a G-Code holster called the INCOG which is an inside the waistband kydex custom holster. What makes it custom? Well, you order it to your specifications. I ordered mine with the full slide guard on the back and four holes as opposed to the standard three for the ride height options on the back.

In the video you will notice the craftsmanship and build quality. The fine men and women over at G-Code put out some amazing products and this one so far has not failed to live up to their reputation. The cost for the holster was $69.95 and shipping roughly $10.00 but I was able to save on shipping by using the discount code “SOOTCH00”. As far as I know that code is still valid and using it made my total order including tax and shipping just under $72.00 shipped.

I plan to wear this holster with different outfits over the next couple weeks and will come back with a full review with another video including different outfits. The felt on the outside of the kydex makes it very comfortable to wear and have against your skin. It’s very light and as you can see in the video it has a slim profile which is what initially attracted to it much like my Phlster holster for the Glock 19.

Overland Park council approves open carry of guns

Open Carry Approved In Overland Park

OVERLAND PARK, KS (KCTV) –
One day after Overland Park voted to change the rules on carrying a gun in the open, the city is dealing with some questions.

The Overland Park city council voted 11-1 Monday night to allow residents to openly carry their handguns in most public places for the first time.

The move comes after the state legislature passed a law essentially making it illegal for cities to restrict gun owners from carrying their weapons openly in public. The state attorney general recently confirmed the validity of the law.

Female Conceal Carry

EDC Conceal Carry Pistol Options

Female Conceal Carry Options

In the pursuit of finding the best conceal carry options, Rebecca from “RebeccaGuns” discusses the journey she traveled to discover the best conceal carry weapon. There are many factors at play when choosing a weapon to carry on a daily basis. We wrote in a previous post about the challenges of females finding the best fire-arm to conceal carry. Women usually wear tighter clothing than men, don’t want to “dress around their weapon” and often wear skirts or dresses which means “no waist band” to speak of.

Seems there are some criteria for selecting the perfect weapon:

  1. Stopping Power
  2. Stopping Capacity
  3. Frame Size
  4. Barrel Length
  5. What holster options are available

Rebecca shares her experience in this video:
