“How a politician stands on the Second Amendment tells you how he or she views you as an individual... as a trustworthy and productive citizen, or as part of an unruly crowd that needs to be lorded over, controlled, supervised, and taken care of.”

Speaking of Holsters

I was recently lucky enough to be randomly selected out of listeners of the RoadGunner Podcast to win a carry kit from Jason Christensen of Concealment Solutions.

Jason and I emailed back and forth a few times to determine exactly what I won (had my choice of a holster, an accessory, and a kydex lined belt), and I ended up with the following:

Kydex-lined belt Sidewinder Pro for my Glock17 […]

New Blog Alert – SafariPrep

One of my buddies just started a blog in preparation for a safari he’s planning. Check Matt’s blog out when you get a chance.

Looks good on the wall

Patches look good, linoge.

Kilted to Kick Cancer

Linoge’s post below was a great reminder that I should post about KTKC…

September is the month to wear your kilts, gents! http://ambulancedriverfiles.com/2013/08/16/kilted-to-kick-cancer-2013-is-just-two-weeks-away/




I won’t be doing any fundraising, I do it for awareness (I do personally donate to the cause). If you can, please participate or do what you can to raise some awareness.


Bonus points for OCing / competing in a kilt.

Magholder Glock Quick Review

I figured I’d toss out a few quick notes on the double stack Glock magholders I purchased from magholder.com.


My other review on the single stack 1911/LCP/whatever small pistol magazine magholders is available here.


I picked up two of these, left hand rear facing (right hand forward facing), and wish that I had gotten one of each. The magholders do a good job keeping the magazine in place as you […]

On PRISMs and Effort

So, I figured I’d put some thoughts together on this whole “the government actually has been monitoring us like the tin foil hat folks have been saying for years”.

That almost sums it up. I’m really disappointed more people aren’t taking action or even TALKING about this. It may seem daunting, overwhelming, or scary, and it probably is all of that, but nevertheless those that actually care about this country need to be doing something.


AZ Making Progress

A libertarian leaning registered Republican in my state has filed the paperwork to start a ballot initiative to change the definition of marriage in AZ to “two persons” instead of “a man and a woman”. Obviously, my wookie-suit says “well, that’s not enough!”, but the pragmatist in me says that’s a great first step!

I intend to sign the petition and hopefully can/will find time to help collect signatures.

h/t to Dave and […]

Ah man, I’m that guy

So, I guess I’m “that blogger” now. Haven’t posted in weeks, and all I’m posting today is “sorry I haven’t posted, I’ll try to post more soon”.


Work has been nuts. Raising two kids is…fun! My wife is fantastic, but they’re still a handful. I just need to make time to take pictures of the SIRT pistol in action and that post will go up.


I installed the AR bolt on two separate […]

Silver Circle – Quick Review

I recently had the opportunity to attend a screening of Silver Circle in Tempe (11APR13 at Pollack Cinemas). I quite enjoyed it and would recommend anyone with an opportunity to see other screenings check it out.

At the center of corruption is the Federal Reserve who has gained enormous amounts of control over America’s economy, with disastrous effects beginning to show.

Standing opposite, is the band of Rebels who have vowed to take back […]

Reviews in the Pipeline

I’ve got a few new products for which I’m working on writing reviews. They are: Sevigny Carry Plain Rear w/ Fiber Optic Front for my Glock 17 Comp-tac International holster for my Glock 17 SIRT AR Bolt MagHolder.com Horizontal Mag Carrier for Glock and almost finished (just need to snap some pictures) is the SIRT Training pistol.

Are there any products you all would like to see reviewed?

I will note I’ve had better luck […]

Wrong is Wrong

And this bill is wrong.


Let me start by saying I really don’t grok gender identity changes, homosexuality, etc, but I do support an individual’s right to choose to be whomever they want to be, however they want to be. The only caveat is that they don’t infringe upon anyone else’s rights while doing so.


This bill is wrong on a number of levels.

First and foremost it’s none […]

We’re number 1!

Quick hit as I try to get some rust off…

In case you hadn’t seen it, my state is ranked number one for firearm’s freedom by guns & ammo!

We’ve got some more steps I’d like to see taken, but we’re getting there. I think we’ll have campus carry soonish. If you’re in AZ and want to see us further entrench ourselves in our top spot, please ensure you’re a member of AZCDL.

Second verse, same as the first

So, like Linoge I don’t have much time for writing right now. Not too sure on his specifics, but my reasons is due to the recent birth of my daughter and having some family in town. I’ll try to get back to my horribly irregular blogging schedule sometime closer to the middle of the month.


Find me on twitter if you need me or whatnot.

NY Boycott

If you’ve somehow missed it, Sean is doing great work with his NY Boycott List.


It’s great to see that there are over 70 companies on the list with more being added all the time. I’d like to see it grow well over 100. It’s cool to see some big (and quality) names on there. I’m also proud to see that one of my local dealers is on the list. Good for […]

Sellouts and UBCs

Sorry for the light posting on my part, something about being crazy busy with a kiddo coming along in the next day or so (she was due on Friday)…

Just a quick note, at this point things are looking good at the federal level for us not getting a new AWB or capacity limit, but things are NOT looking good right now for background checks. 2/3 of my “representatives” from AZ appear poised to sell […]

Is CTD trying to buy their way back in?

We’re probably all well aware of the blunders on the part of Cheaper Than Dirt in the last few months. Now the question is, can they throw enough money at the community to get back into our good graces?

I’ll admit I’ve never been a customer of CTD’s, but I have been following the situation.

I don’t consider their actions to be price gouging, it’s supply and demand. If you really […]

QotW – Week of 11FEB13

This week’s QotW comes from the comments on the “No one is coming for your guns” post courtesy of Antonio who resides where the gun control crowd did what they ultimately want: confiscation.

Antonio February 15, 2013 at 23:11 ·

I am a Canadian. I happened upon your website not too long ago and enjoy reading your blog – keep up the great work.Reading this particular piece, about ‘no one wanting to take […]

2A Rally – 16FEB13 – AAR

I attended another pro-rights rally at the AZ state capitol yesterday. The event was scheduled 12-2 and my wife, son, and I were able to stay until about 1:15. There was a decent turnout, but it seemed a little smaller than the last rally I attended. This time they had a PA system, but I still couldn’t hear them very well.

I saw considerably more long guns being OC’d than last time, but far fewer […]

No one is coming for your guns, you bitter clingers

So quit being so bitter about it.

This is something that’s brought up time and time again. “No one wants to take away your guns.” “No one’s asking for confiscation.” If any pro-rights activists still believe that, I have a bridge for sale. I’m often told that it’s “only the fringe” of anti-gun cultists that want confiscation. If that’s the case, why do so many elected servants nationwide think it’s such […]

2A Rally – Phoenix, AZ – 16FEB13 @ Noon

I’m not a “Tea Partier” nor am I affiliated with the organization hosting this rally, but I intend to be there in the flesh.

If you’re in Arizona (or anywhere nearby), feel free to come on down and join us. I intend to be OCing a handgun and a long gun. If you can make it, feel free to leave a comment or sync up with me on twitter and we’ll meet up.
