Trigger Guard Holster for Kel-Tec PF-9 Review

Small single-stack 9mm pistols like the Kel-Tec PF-9 or S&W M&P Shield are highly portable and more easily concealed than their higher-capacity, double-stack magazine counterparts. We accept their drawbacks like more harsh recoil, less fit-and-finish, and lackluster triggers in order to gain advantages in weight and size. This is particularly important to women, whose different […]

KPOS Generation 2 Glock 19 Short Barreled Rifle SBR Review

My review of the KPOS pistol to rifle / carbine conversion kit, sold in the USA by the Mako Group. I had a lot of problems, but the promise of a compact, portable SBR keeps me tinkering with it.

Fighting Further Gun Control: Week Four

Fighting Further Gun Control: Week Four

This week the article is personal — Minnesota is about to have a “firearm safety committee” by well-known anti-gun politician House Public Safety Committee Chairman Michael Paymar. As usual, any time firearms are brought up as a public safety, public health, or “save the children” initiative it is usually bullshit. Many anti-gun advocates will hide […]

Fighting Further Gun Control: Week Three

On Wednesday, January 16 2013 President Barack Obama released his proposed executive orders to “deal” with gun violence. As I wrote a few weeks ago, most of what gun control advocates propose has little to nothing to do with curbing mass murders such as the school shooting in Connecticut. Those educated on current and past […]

Starbucks You Complete Me

It’s rare that I find someone who shares my worldview as a gun-carrying gay rights activist. I can usually find folks who agree with one issue but not the other, and depending on how myopic they are we usually part ways right then and there. It is somewhat popular in Minnesota, my current state of […]

Comp-Tac Single Magazine Pouch Carrier Review

Comp-Tac Single Magazine Pouch Carrier Review

In September of 2010 I wrote about a few different magazine carriers that I own, and how different form factors can be more or less useful for those of us who carry a firearm concealed. I purchased and used a single, horizontal magazine carrier made by Parlux for quite some time. In December of last […]

How to Tell Someone You Can See Their Gun

There’s a coffee shop within short walking distance from my new job. I go there about four or five times a week with my co-workers, and it’s a nice joint in a nicer part of downtown. Now, Minneapolis is to the rest of Minnesota as Northern Virginia is to the rest of Virginia, for my […]

Minnesotans: Urge your representative to support HF1467

Minnesotans: Urge your representative to support HF1467

Earlier this week I wrote a post about the civilian self-defense and the complex and subjective rules of engagement. I called out Minnesota’s “Duty to Retreat” demand as an arbitrary requirement that is difficult for people to accurately evaluate during times of stress. Duty to retreat means that the burden is on the victim to […]

Rethinking Civilian Rules of Engagement

Rethinking Civilian Rules of Engagement

The current civilian self-defense rules are difficult, complex, and open to interpretation. It supports the legal system and not the victim. The checklist is dangerous, and replacing it with a simplified version may make it easier on citizens. It may cloud the issue when both parties are breaking the law, or when situations aren’t clear cut.
