New For 2022: 30 Super Carry

Many of today’s popular cartridges were designed in a radically different era with certain limitations, technologies and purposes in mind. With the incredible number of concealed-carry holders in the United States today, it’s clear there’s demand for cutting-edge technology designed for an ultimate focus on personal defense. Federal Premium designed its all-new 30 Super Carry as a…

HOOBER: At Last, A New Caliber That Isn’t Totally Pointless

By Sam HooberRight before SHOT Show 2022, Federal Ammunition has announced a new caliber, .30 Super Carry. While new calibers are sometimes (and rightfully) viewed with a jaundiced eye, this new cartridge has a certain amount of promise. There are already some new guns that are supposedly on the way that will chamber it as…

Why Ankle Holsters Are A Great Option For Concealed Carry

By Daniel T. McElrathAbsurd and useless. Those are the words I would’ve used to describe ankle holsters—before I started rocking one. If you are inexperienced with them, you probably imagine having to drop to your strong-side knee, pulling up your pant cuff and drawing the pistol. That doesn’t sound terribly efficient and it’s difficult to…

Pocket Pistol Primer: Mastering Small Self-Defense Guns

Establishing a bond with a pocket pistol is similar to marriage in a way: You have to be willing to accept compromise. To make any compromise worth the effort, there must be a clear objective. In this case preserving your life is the goal, and pocket pistols, whether diminutive semi-automatics or small-frame revolvers, do their…

HOOBER: Concealed Carry At Work Should Be Approached With Great Care

Gun Test: Taurus GX4 Micro-9mm Handgun

For a long while, Taurus had a pretty decent gig churning out copies of Smith & Wesson revolvers. In the 1970s, the same conglomerate that owned Smith & Wesson purchased a controlling interest in Taurus, so the two companies shared technology and designs. In 1980, Taurus purchased Beretta’s São Paulo, Brazil, operational facility after completion of a…

HOOBER: Do You Really Have To Carry Every Day?

By Sam HooberThere are two versions of any axiom. There’s the one that gets told to newbies and casuals and then a version that fills in the nuance for those with experience and a bit of learning under their belt. Here’s one for concealed carry. “You should carry whenever you can. If you’re selective about…

HOOBER: The Riddle Of Steel Is Why Did The Sucker Cross The Road To...

By Sam HooberA lot of people spend a lot of money on EDC knives that are ostensibly for “self-defense” but ultimately will never amount to being more than a hugely overpriced boxcutter. Sure, Benchmade makes amazing stuff, but a carpet knife that costs $15 will make short work of Amazon boxes just as well. Arguably…

Pump Vs. Semi: Which Shotgun Is Better For Personal Defense?

By Jeff JohnstonYou remember the old Miller Lite commercial wherein an army of beer drinkers on one side of the bar chants “Tastes great!” while the other camp retorts “Less filling!”?
