#DIGTHERIG – Dominick and his Kimber Solo Carry in a Winthrop Holster

Mon, 06/19/2017 - 09:50


I carry a Kimber Solo Carry.

I wanted an all metal carry gun, I love striker fire, and I wanted both of those options in the smallest 9mm package available. It’s light, it’s trigger is amazing, it’s frame is manageable without the extended mag. My problem was that I have conceal and carry but didn’t actually carry it as much as I should. The Solo delivers all of your wants in a convenient and easy to carry pistol.

I carry a Winthrop in the waist band, right hand draw from a left handed holster, from the small of my back. Its perfectly unnoticed wearing a T-shirt over jeans.

[VIDEO] Here Is What You Don’t Do With Tannerite

Mon, 06/19/2017 - 09:40

Here’s a brief lesson on what not to do with Tannerite, in glorious video form.

It would appear that some poor sap managed to very nearly kill himself after shooting a refrigerator tilled with the explosive material, Tannerite.

What happened? Check out the video below.

Maybe next time this little group gets an idea to something else colossally stupid, they’ll take a moment and think.

It’s good to see he came out OK, nonetheless.

What else do you not do with Tannerite? Please like and spread this video around on Facebook and Twitter!

[VIDEO] Would You Draw Or Shoot?

Sun, 06/18/2017 - 20:16

Our friends at TTAG recently shared a video of an armed security guard drawing his gun on a person who was videotaping whatever was going on.

The problem here is that we don’t have a whole lot to go on as far as the events leading up to this but assuming that nothing wrong was done by the man being drawn upon, what would you have done? Watch the video above and share your thoughts.

#DIGTHERIG – Patrick and his Glock 26 in a StealthGearUSA Holster

Sun, 06/18/2017 - 09:47


I am fortunate enough to be physically able to carry at work.  Additionally, it’s encouraged by my boss!

I keep my Glock 26 REAL close…at ALL times.  Can’t say enough about this StealthGear Appendix holster! Hands down, most comfortable option I have found.

I carry a backup mag in an AlienGear CloakMag, on my person… I occasionally shed that, and tighten up the Mission Belt, when my backpack is on. Another mag, also fitted with Pearce Grip, is in a BlackHawk mag carrier on my left shoulder band.

I find all of these (at 5’10”, 170lbs) to conceal and function very well for me…  it’s been a long and hard battle to find what’s right… this is IT for me.

#DIGTHERIG – Steve and his Sig Sauer C3 in a Fusion Holster

Mon, 06/12/2017 - 11:55


I carry a Sig Sauer C3 .45 ACP in a Fusion Holster. I carry the C3 because a 1911 is one of the best combat handguns in history with the stopping power of the .45 ACP and Sig’s commander slide on an officers frame seems to be a perfect fit for a concealed carry gun. The Fusion Holster is the only holster I have found that fully supports a 1911 inside the waist band comfortably without having to constantly re-adjust​.

Moms Demand Singing To End Gun Violence

Mon, 06/12/2017 - 10:39

If there’s a way to end gun violence, it’s to sing.

I’m all for people supporting their beliefs and doing what they feel is right. I mean, MDA doesn’t exactly like my approach to guns. To each their own, but they continue to forget one important fact: It’s the bad people that are the problem, not guns.

If you dare watch the video, it’s embedded above for your viewing pleasure.

Things You Can’t Make Up: Man Shoots Another Man With Shotgun Shell Filled With Rice Krispies

Sun, 06/11/2017 - 15:53

EUREKA, CALIFORNIA — A man, who fancies breakfast foods, decided to put some rice krispies inside a shotgun shell. The next big idea was to shoot someone with those fast-propelling pieces of cereal.


According to KRCR, Eureka police officers received a “shots fired” around 3:25 p.m. on June 7. They responded to find the wounded man and learned that the suspect, 29-year-old Timothy Glass Jr., had fled the scene on a bike.

The victim was transported to a hospital, and police determined that Glass had shot him using a flare gun, which was loaded with a shotgun shell packed with Rice Krispies.

The person shot wound up with a wounded hand, and he also declined to press any charges against Glass. While we don’t know the circumstances surrounding this cereal assault, it’s something that you don’t see everyday.

And that’s it for your Weird News of the Day.

Resident Exchanges Gunfire With Intruder, He Ran So Quickly That He Left His Shoes Behind

Mon, 05/29/2017 - 15:12

CAMERON, SOUTH CAROLINA — A man awoke around 4AM to the sound of someone walking in his kitchen. Arming himself with a handgun, he then heard the intruder making his way to the bedroom where the man was waiting.

Out of fear, the man shot at the intruder. In turn, the intruder shot back. The two exchanged gunfire, and that’s when the intruder decided that he picked the wrong house to break into. He took off out the front door so quickly that he left his shoes behind.

The intruder, possibly trying to be a little smart, had left his flip-flops on the front porch as to not make a lot of noise when he was walking around the house.

Still, his bad decision to break into this armed man’s home was enough to earn him a stupid award.

The armed man called police and when they arrived, they noticed numerous bullet holes both inside and outside the home. The intruder has not yet been caught.

Remember: Have your firearm handy and easily accessible, because it could be you that’s awoken at 4AM and suddenly faced with an armed intruder.

Robber Pulls Fake Gun, Clerk Pulls Real Gun, Robber Gets Shot, Clerk Goes Home, Robber Goes To Hospital

Fri, 05/26/2017 - 14:37

FAIRFIELD, CALIFORNIA — An armed robber with a mask barged into a smoke shop and pulled a gun from his waistband. That gun turned out to be all show, but the armed clerk was ready to defend himself with a real gun.

The robber was shot in the chest and was taken to the hospital in critical condition. The clerk was uninjured.

Whether the gun was fake or not is irrelevant, because the display of a gun is enough to justify drawing your real firearm. The fake gun was actually a realistic-looking bb-gun, which of course the clerk did not know at the time.

If you play stupid games, you’ll win stupid prizes. In this case, the game was trying to be a thug, and the prize was a bullet to the chest.

Customer At Store Shoots Armed Robbers During Attempted Heist

Wed, 05/24/2017 - 15:40

ASHEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA – As two armed teenagers entered a convenience store one night this month, they weren’t expecting an armed customer to ruin their plans.

On Friday, two people came into the convenience store around 9:45 p.m., one brandishing a gun, another a Taser, owner Jamal Hamden said.

At that point a customer shot one of the pair, Hamden said. Both fled without taking any money.

That customer, at the right place at the right time, took care of unfortunate business that he or she was forced into.

When police arrived, the found one of the suspects nearby with a gunshot wound. It seems that the other suspect got away, but police are looking to talk with the injured suspect once he is able to speak with them.

And that’s about it for this story. Another armed citizen who refused to be a victim, or let others be victimized.
