How to Tell Someone You Can See Their Gun

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 […]

I affectionately refer to it as my “assault diaper,” and I have found it to solve a problem other holsters cannot.

Is that a gun in your pants, or are you just happy to see me?

Is that a gun in your pants, or are you just happy to see me?

I wrote about the SmartCarry deep concealment handgun holster in June of 2008. I had worn it around a few times, and while it was comfortable enough, I still couldn’t get the hang of living with it on.
