*WATCH* Gun Yoga Is A New Thing

Mon, 11/13/2017 - 21:58

A friend sent me this on Facebook and I couldn’t help but watch it. I already knew how it would end, but was surprised at just how many others couldn’t figure it out.

The video is above. It’ll either give you a laugh, or make you wonder why such a thing exists. We hope you aren’t the latter.

*WATCH* Numerous Examples: Carry With A Round In The Chamber

Sun, 11/12/2017 - 15:39

There is sometimes a debate about carrying with a round in the chamber, as some people don’t because they are just starting out. While we want people to be comfortable with the firearm they are carrying, it should be a considering factor to carry at all…

In other words, carry the way you feel is best for you, but also be mindful of the fact that, if needed, you may not have time to rack that slide. And even if you do, you may find yourself with a malfunction.

Watch the video above which shoes numerous examples of both chambered carry and not chambered. The differences can be staggering in the end.

GLOCK 17 Nearly Melts in the Hands of Major YouTube Star

Fri, 11/10/2017 - 12:42

Eric from Moss Pawn and Gun, known as the owner, producer, and general star of the Iraqveteran8888 YouTube channel, can do some pretty cool stuff when you put, well, just about any firearm in his hands.

He records many of his exploits and posts them online for the viewing public to enjoy.

His videos are largely excellent (there might be a “Five Gun” list or two I disagree with), but what he did with a Gen3 GLOCK 17 with an auto sear in 2015 is the stuff of gun video legend.

What is it he did, exactly?

He just nearly melted one of the most reliable firearms on earth by running it so hard.

Check out the video below. It’s not at all intended to be an exposé of some sort of hidden GLOCK frailty.

It’s a testament to how hard they can run.

1272 rounds running non stop is no joke. Take a look:

Failed Home Invasion Leaves One Suspect Dead

Sun, 09/17/2017 - 04:10

JEFFERSON COUNTY, ALABAMA — One man is dead after he and his buddy try to invade a home and rob the people inside. Little did they know that at these intended victims weren’t going down without a fight.


Information at the scene was that the male homeowner and a friend were in a side room of the home visiting. Two armed men forced their way into the door and tried to rob them.

The homeowner and his friend began fighting with the suspects. The homeowner was struck in in the head with a handgun.

After this, a single shot is said to have been fired. That shot found it’s target, and one of the bad guys was pronounced dead at the scene.

It’s unclear whether the gun was taken from the suspect, or if the homeowner had a gun of his own. Or, it could be possible that the gun went off in the hands of the suspect, and he ended up being the unlucky recipient of some deadly lead.

The second suspect ran to a waiting getaway vehicle which was driven by a third suspect. Hopefully, these two remaining thugs will be found and charged with murder, since their buddy failed to live through their stupid decision.

Motorcyclists Get Into Awful Scrap On Oklahoma Roadside… Footage Is Awful

Fri, 09/15/2017 - 21:46

OKLAHOMA — One brawl between a pickup truck driver and his friends and a group of motorcyclists nearly went deadly more than once as the two groups confronted each other at the side of the road.

There are threats with at least one gun, there are threats with at least one knife, and there are deliberate threats to people’s lives. It’s a mess.

More than a mess, it’s a miracle. There’s no reason this many angry, armed, fighting people should have survived this. It’s morbid, but that’s a fact.

In terms of when and where a responsible citizen should act here, I’m going to present this one without comment.

[VIDEO] Armed Robber Gives Carjacking a Try, Wasn’t Ready for Swift Response

Wed, 08/23/2017 - 15:54

It’s always helpful to be armed — especially when you’re facing a carjacking situation.

But, in a video published by DriveTribe, one woman managed to evade attack by to armed car robbers not with a firearm, but with some lightning-quick reflexes.

Check out the video below:

This might not have been the reaction the intended victim would have had were she armed, but it’s some speedy work, nonetheless.

#DIGTHERIG – Chris and his Ruger SR9c in an Alien Gear Holster

Fri, 08/18/2017 - 00:37


My name is Chris, I’d like to make my submission for #digtherig

1. I carry a Ruger SR9C, loaded with 10+1 of Federal HST 124g.

2.  I carry in an 👽 Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.0

3. I am a farmer, and I carry all day, every day. I like the Ruger because it feels good in my hand, and shoots well. I like the extra ammo capacity of a double stack over a single stack. I love that holster because it is extremely comfortable, and it hides the double stack Ruger well on my small frame. I also like that the holster is tuckable. The AG is the only holster I’ve tried, because I’ve never felt the need to try anything else.

[VIDEO] Is the.22 Rifle a Viable Tool for Self-Defense?

Thu, 08/17/2017 - 12:44

The “correct” caliber for home defense largely depends on who you talk to. There are some who believe that for them there is .45, only .45, and forever .45. Everybody’s got that one friend.

For far more, the answer to the home defense question is 12 gauge — and to be fair, most things that shoot 12 gauge will make for a superior home defense tool.

However, one question that never seems to go away is the.22 question — is it a viable option?

Of course, here we aren’t really talking so much about .22 magnum or .223 — .22LR, the ubiquitous round that generally costs less than a dime a round.

In the above video, YouTuber Paul Harrell explores that very option. Among other things, he makes a definitive point that it beats nothing, and its easy shootability really does lend it some street cred.

When you’re done checking out this video, check out the rest of his gun videos — he’s one of the better YouTube gun personalities out there.

#DIGTHERIG – Zach and his Glock 43 in a L.A.G Holster

Sat, 08/12/2017 - 12:48


Here is my g43 in a L.A.G. tactical iwb holster. I mostly wear this gun aiwb due to the ability to conceal and quick draw. The mag holder is a blackhawk generic owb but i added a j clip to broaden what i can wear it with

#DIGTHERIG – WDRoberson and his Glock 26 in a Blackhawk Holster

Fri, 08/11/2017 - 01:02


My EDC gear consists of a Glock 26 with “Snake Eyes” trijicon sights and replaced tungsten recoil spring. Blackhawk CQC IWB leather holster. Two extra 12 round magazines in a De Santis leather double magazine holder feeding my chosen carry ammo, Hornady Critical Duty 135 gr. 9mm +P FlexLock. A SOG quick to action fixed blade knife in composite sheath and all supported with a quality metal reinforced leather belt.

I chose the Glock 26 after shooting one at a local range. Bought it to replace my former EDC which was a S&W Performance Center M&P Shield in 9mm because of the better conceal ability as well as the added magazine capacity. I gained two of the most important aspects of concealed carry by switching firearms.

#DIGTHERIG – Alex and his CZ P07 9mm in a StealthGearUSA Holster

Thu, 08/10/2017 - 12:29


I carry this CZ P07 9mm in a StealthGear onyx IWB hybrid.  Great compact size (same size as a Glock 19) with great capacity (15+1) and it shoots like a dream. Holster is very comfortable and breaths well in the desert heat.  If I am not sleeping or at work, it’s on me.  Spyderco knife FYI.

#DIGTHERIG – John and his Walther CCP in a Survival Sheath and Comp-tec Holster

Tue, 08/08/2017 - 17:52


1.  Walther CCP 9mm

2.  Concealed (shoulder holster) Survivalsheath custom dual holster
Open carry:  Comp-tec Custom belt holster

3.  The small size of the CCP fits perfectly with a shoulder holster without any imprinting or poke through.  The Custom molded doesn’t irritate my arm like the universal cloth/leather holster do.  I wear the belt holster all the time as I open carry most of the time, it has the extra hardware to pull it away from my body making it easier to access!

#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 – Garrett and his Springfield XDs 9mm in an Alien Gear Holster

Sat, 06/17/2017 - 22:06


Gun: Springfield XDS 9mm, along with Benchmade Traige knife

Holster: Alien Gear IWB Cloak Tuck 3.0

The Springfield fits well in my hands and points well and is still very concealable even with the extended magazine in the Alien Gear holster that fits very comfortably.

#DIGTHERIG – Peter and his Glock 43 in a Desantis Holster

Wed, 06/14/2017 - 10:57


My summer EDC is my Glock 43 w/ Trijicon night sights, and a Taran +1 mag extension providing me 8 rounds of 9mm. I carry it in summer because it conceals easily in summer attire. I carry it in a Desantis SOF-TUCK IWB holster.

Smith & Wesson SD9VE

Comfortable and plenty of rounds!
