What have you been up to this week?

While I may have limited Net access, the rest of the world probably continues on.

Not a ton of progress made around here this week, though we are planning some work in the garden. Finances in recovery mode post move and a few related purchases.

We did have fun without AC, power and now Internet at various points this week. Modern conveniences are good.

Lots of talk in the wake of Colorado...gun control being a hot topic, but so is concealed carry. Two family friends have mentioned buying guns and getting permits. Would expect to see spikes in demand for both. I am looking into trying out a different holster for my Glock to see if I can make it work concealed. Jframe disappears, but 5 shots of 38 is what it is.

Hope you have had productive weeks and have good stuff in store for the weekend. Discuss with the tribe in the comments section.

  1. Galco V-HAWK IWB HOLSTER for Glock 19,26. I carry in it every day, CDM COP DOUBLE MAG CASE for magazines. You won't be disapointed with either.

    Just got a Crossbreed for my Glock 27. Expensive but worth it. Comfortable and concealable.

    1. Also carry the Crossbreed Supertuck Deluxe. I have a Glock 21 and Glock 30, both .45 ACP. They disappear from sight in the holster, but are still easy to access and gain a good grip on.

    Picked up one of those sweet Sawyer water filter bucket kits...what a great deal. Thanks for the recommendation. Can't wait to try it out.

    1. It is a great piece of gear! I still need to do a more detailed post on the virus filter...

  4. Maybe try a Clip-Draw for your Glock, Simple to install, doesnt interfere with weapon and no more need for a holster...works great. Ive been carrying one for years on my Glock 23, always carry off duty and everywhere I go. With the Clip-Draw you can even carry in board shorts and a tank top...trust me, I take mine to the river everytime we go....gators can get a little too friendly!

    1. I like a low-ish ride on my handguns - how is the Clip Draw? I was eyeing the new Raven Concealment rig, but apparently it won't fit a Gen 2 Glock correctly, and I've got a Gen 2.

    2. It actually rides pretty low inside the pants, with just the very rear of the slide and the backstrap, bottom of grip, sticking out....just enough to establish a hold on the weapon and draw, but concealed much better than most holsters i've ever used. Been in this business a long time and I wouldnt use anything else, least not for a Glock....just cant beat the ease of use, concealability and adaptibility.....with a little inginuity, it could easily used on Molle gear or other similiar systems as well.

    3. The one installed on my Glock right now is the original one I purchased about 12 years ago, been used on 4 different Glocks in that time, being carried, tugged on and used litteraly thousands of times.....everyday for 12 years....Quality product, never had a problem!

  5. Updated my first-aid kits and swapped out some non-lockable door knobs for ones that lock. They're just $10 knobs on standard hollow core doors, but now every room in the house can be locked shut. Next up, I'm going to get a beefed up door and a double sided deadbolt for the door from my house to my garage.

  6. This week was a busy week. I went through my Get Home Bag and added some security items to it like zip-tie restraints and pepper spray as well as removing some items to pair down my load and to try to make it look less tactical. I also filtered the items in my Business EDC kit. I travel and attend lots of meetings in large office buildings in large cities so I carry a kit designed to help me get out or get found in case of earthquakes, fires, power outages or man-caused disasters (lol). So, I spent lots of time thinking, planning and restructuring that kit to be more focused on those needs. I also went to the range for pistol practice and put a few rounds through my new Saiga 12 semi-auto. I quizzed my sons a bit on important facets of our disaster plan and worked with them on knife sharpening techniques. I replaced my youngest son's beginner bow with one he can grow with and watched him take about 2 hours worth of target practice working on his draw technique with this bigger bow. I also added a few new items to the small Get Home Tins I'm building for my sons and their friends. These make great Christmas gifts. Next up is finding a way to carry the 15 round mags for my Saiga 12. Companies don't make pouches for these.

    1. Sounds like a good week!

      Check out the HSGI Taco mag pouches for your Saiga mags - they should fit. BladeTech makes a kydex one that might work, too.

  7. Found an online video that may actually be of some general use, with no cats being cute or fireworks malfunctions. http://vimeo.com/32367993 . Somewhat 'graphic' and definitely not suitable for vegans/vegetarians. I learned a lot. MMMMM... pork.....
