“Though it is a long step between being disarmed and being murdered - one does not usually lead to the other - but it is nevertheless an arresting reality that not one of the principal genocides of the twentieth century, and there have been dozens, has been inflicted on a population that was armed.”

"gun control" is losing

The Art of Manliness recently published an article entitled The Stylish Man’s Guide to Concealed Carry and another entitled How to Use a Flashlight in a Tactical Situation.

Need I say more?

  • TAoM is a terrific site!

    All the stuff grandad should have taught you…


  • Archer

    Excellent articles. I have one gripe with the CCW one: the author’s apparently never heard of pocket holsters, which would alleviate many of the stated downsides.

    Hell, Dragon Leatherworks even makes one with a flap that makes the gun print like a normal wallet! (see Chimaera)

  • @ guffaw: Exactly :).

    @ Archer: The only catch with pocket holsters is that your selection of carry firearms is greatly reduced, and your draw actions are slightly complicated. But, yeah, they remain an option.

  • It is a little simplified. I wish I’d known they were writing this piece in advance. Since they’re semi local, and I am a professional leather smith, I think I could have offered some particular insight.

  • Well, yeah, but “simple” is good for their intended audience, which I took to be people who were largely unfamiliar with both topics; if nothing else, they have to consider that audience in all of their writing.

    Go ahead and bug them anywise – firearms seem to be a recurring topic there, and maybe they will have a “stylish guide to holsters” or something in the future :).
