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.

Gun Test: Springfield Armory SA-35 Pistol

By Ed FriedmanWhen the folks at Springfield Armory mentioned that the company was working on a new pistol, I assumed it was going to be a line extension for the Hellcat or perhaps a new form of the XD platform.

By Larry KeaneThe U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen and a decision will likely come next June at the end of the court’s current term. Early reactions suggest the high court is wary of New York’s restrictive “may issue” concealed carry law and is likely to strike it down…

HOOBER: The Correlation Fallacy, Concealed Carry And SCOTUS

By Sam HooberOne of the most profuse logical fallacies is the correlation fallacy. Just because two things coincide or correlate doesn’t mean they have anything to do with each other, or – we’re probably more used to this phrasing – correlation is not causation or something to that effect. The phrase in Latin is cum…
