#DIGTHERIG – Shawn and his KelTec P32 in an Uncle Mikes Holster

Fri, 04/14/2017 - 14:45


Ok so I know my EDC setup isn’t gonna overwhelm anyone. But after trying so many holsters and guns THIS is what I will actually consistently carry every day.

It’s a KelTec P32 in an Uncle Mikes front pocket holster.

Like I say pretty underwhelming. But it conceals perfectly in everything, even shorts. Not too heavy, bulky, sharp, etc.
I can draw easily and quickly put rounds on target and it’s a surprisingly accurate little gun and goes bang every time. Plus no fighting with the holster to put it on and have it bug me all day.

I try to keep my EDC items small yet functional so I will actually carry them.
Cuz like the old saying goes: a .32 in the pocket beats a .45 in the truck right? :)

[VIDEO] Unintentional Double Tap: Know Your Gun And How To Handle It

Sat, 04/08/2017 - 13:21

Dan posted a great video a few days ago about an unintentional double tap that made it’s way to the interwebs. He talks about an unintentional double tap that he once experienced, and also what went wrong in the example video.

Long story short, the shooter’s finger remained tight on the trigger, depressing it again during the recoil. Which, by the way, was a lot. It’s a Smith & Wesson 500.

The other issue with this particular shooter is that he was trying this one-handed. I can’t speak for everyone, but it seems that he didn’t have a whole lot of experience with this firearm and as a result, sent two bullets down the barrel instead of the intended one.

With firearms like this one, the recoil can indeed place the barrel of the gun in your face (which is why two hands are recommended) and if another bullet is on it’s way down the barrel, well, you can see a potentially dangerous outcome.

[VIDEO] How Bad Is It To Get Shot At Point-Blank Range?

Wed, 03/08/2017 - 18:57

Oh, you know, it was only a matter of time before Andrew did a video like this. But instead of offering up some actual flesh –because that’s obviously not going to happen– Andrew uses some ballistic gel in the shape of a torso.

Going from small to large calibers, take a look at the video above to see what can happen with point-blank shots.

[VIDEO] Imagine Seeing This At Your Front Door While You’re Home; This Homeowner Was Armed And Fired Shots

Fri, 02/03/2017 - 14:31

HOLLYWOOD, FLORIDA — A homeowner was happy to be armed during an attempted home invasion a few days ago, and he sent the criminal running for his life.

Captured on a home surveillance system, the bad guy can be seen trying to get into the front door with some tools. When he was unsuccessful, he attempted to gain entry through a window of the home.

That’s when the homeowner fought back, firing several shots at the criminal.

Police are still looking for this thug who got away, and it is unknown if he was injured as a result of the armed homeowner.

Recently, I made the move from NY to FL (more on that later). The brazen crime that happens down here is not what I’m used to growing up in NY. There’s a whole other level of ‘balls’ on some of these criminals, and gives even more reason to be armed while at home.

[VIDEO] In A Bad Situation, Could You Actually Pull The Trigger?

Tue, 01/31/2017 - 11:50

When talking about personal defense, many people say, “But I Could Never Shoot Someone.” This video explains the difference between people like that and those who carry a gun everyday. It also explains the mindset of a criminal.

In line with this video from TheFireArmGuy, we pose the question that we’ve posed before; as a concealed carrier, are you actually capable of pulling the trigger if needed? Are you prepared to take a life? If the answer is no, then you should consider other alternatives than carrying a firearm.

More on this in an upcoming article.

[VIDEO] [NSFW] Trump Supporter Pulled From Car And Beaten In Chicago Street

Thu, 11/10/2016 - 12:40

In a new video that’s circulating around the web, a group of angry men can be seen brutally attacking another man after ripping him from his car. Why? Supposedly because he’s a Trump supporter.


In one incident in Chicago, a white man was beaten up by a group of black people, apparently because he voted for Trump. In the video, he was pulled from his car and repeatedly punched and kicked while people in the background yelled “Don’t vote for Trump!”

In Chicago, it’s difficult to get a permit to carry a firearm. Had this man been allowed his right to carry, the assault could have never begun in the first place. I know, I know, we’ll never know many variables.

This is the world that we live in, though. A drive down the road could easily turn into an attack, simply because of who you voted for in an election.

These apparent Hillary supporters aren’t being displayed all across the media. I wonder why.
