Maxpedition’s New Products: SHOT Show 2017

This year at SHOT Show, Tim Tang, President of Maxpedition, gave us a tour of some of their new products. Naturally, we focused on their various bags and accessories that have CCW applications and work well at the shooting range . . . Backpacks, messenger bags, laptop bags, cross-body shoulder bags, wallets, holsters, and more… […]

Gun Review: Beretta Pico

Hitting distributor shelves now is the slimmest .380 ACP pistol on the market, the Beretta Pico. At its widest point — across the ambi mag release paddle — my caliper pegs it at 18.5mm (0.728″), while the rest of the lilliputian pocket gun comes in at or under 18mm. Despite the tiny dimensions and the […]

Gear Review: Cook’s Holsters IWB w/ Adjustable Belt Clip

You’re looking at my new EDC holster, an “IWB w/ Adjustable Belt Clip” from Cook’s Holsters. I picked up the Beretta Nano version for testing in July and liked it so much that I couldn’t live without buying another one for my Taurus TCP. These things are beautifully simple, flawlessly finished, and add almost nothing to […]

Gun Review: SIG SAUER P938

In recent years there has certainly been no shortage of sub-compact, “pocket-sized” 9mm pistols to choose from. Market demand has spoken, and manufacturers have answered with available products. However, if you’re a “cocked & locked,” hammer-fired kind of a gal (or guy) you’ve been almost completely overlooked. Thankfully, one of the only options out there […]

Gear Review: Theis EZ-Clip Holster

Tommy Theis runs Arkansas-based Theis Holsters. He hand-makes every holster, mag holster, and belt that comes out of the shop, and test draws from each holster to ensure proper fitment. I really like single-clip, hybrid holsters, and thought I’d try one from Theis — their EZ-Clip — for my H&K P7 . . .

Gear Review: Speakeasy Briefs

This wasn’t actually going to become a TTAG post, but I was inspired by our IGOTD winner, Dallas Archer, who chose to conceal an NAA Mini-Revolver in a very private place on in her person. Rewind one year — almost to the day — and a new company called Speakeasy Briefs is generating funding on […]

Ventura County Joins Orange County, Goes “Shall Issue”

Ventura County sheriff (yes, Ventura County, California) Geoff Dean is the latest to adopt a ‘shall-issue’ CCW policy for its county residents. In so doing, he joins Orange County as a ‘shall issue’ jurisdiction. Many northern California LEOs have long been quietly issuing CCWs much more liberally than the gun-phobic sheriffs of SoCal, but Orange […]

Will Georgia Go Easy On Accidental Airport Carry?

Airports can be minefields for CCW holders. State laws vary widely even in ‘free’ states, and the blue-gloved TSA fondlers are always waiting at the end of the security queue. Georgia is a state which specifically allows CCW in the non-secured portion of its airports, and for many Georgians this blessing has proven to be […]

Detroit Police Chief James Craig Wants YOU! To CCW!

Detroit Police Chief James Craig dropped a bomb on the smug and cozy world of gun-control advocates last week, when he said publicly what the statistics and sociologists have been saying for years: more guns equals less crime. To be specific,  law-abiding concealed carry deters crime. Chief Craig has a long way to go to […]
