A little link love for a fellow gun blogger, wherein The Firearm Blog’s James ruins perfectly good outwear to prove that you can indeed shoot a snubbie through a jacket pocket. At bad breath distance. But not a semi.
Personally, I like to carry my firearm in a holster so I can remove said gun and show it to the bad guy. To dissuade the perp or perps and have a much better chance of hitting someone posing an imminent, credible threat of grievous bodily harm or death.
One thing: don’t do this with a ported gun. The side blast would be extremely painful. And no, I’m not going to test it. Oh, and GET OFF THE X. Just sayin’ . . .
