  • Take the Glock safety pledge

    June is National Safety Month and Glock is asking all of those out there in the firearms community, whether they have combat polymer on tap or not, to take the Glock Safety Pledge. Why gun safety? According to the National Safety Council, injuries of all sorts are a leading cause of disability for people of all ages and they are the leading cause of death for Americans ages 1 to 44. But many injuries can be prevented when people practice safe behaviors. Now firearms are inherently safe, and...
  • A Tale of Glocks and Concealed Carry Classes in the Lone Star State

    When you hear "CHL," what comes to mind? Well here in Texas and a lot of other states around this great nation it does not mean Canadian Hockey League. It stands for concealed handgun license. Today I had the extreme pleasure of taking my class in Alvarado. The class was part of a deal, if you buy a gun from CrazyGunDealer; all you pay is for your ammo and target. It was $35.00, which is cheap if you look around and check prices its hard to find one in the DFW metro-plex more economical than...
  • So you've been involved in a defensive gun use, now what?

    It has happened. That event that you always hoped would never occur under your watch: having to use a firearm in self-defense. Whether you had to pull the trigger or not, you now have several things to worry about. Will you be charged? Go to jail? Stripped of your guns? Sued? Lets talk about that. The 3-legs of self-defense As a firearms instructor for both concealed carriers and security/law enforcement, I spend a lot of my time talking about the proper (legal and ethical) use of force....
  • Managing Personal Defense Risk

    The first rule of personal defense is you are responsible for your own safety. That means several things; you are responsible for seeking and applying the knowledge to defend yourself; you are responsible for identifying, purchasing, practicing with, and maintaining your kit; and you are responsible for instilling in yourself the mental attitude and toughness that will allow you to win the fight. The mental aspect of personal defense is probably the most elusive - training and gear may...
  • Glock owner in Los Angeles? Good luck with those mags

    Tuesday the Los Angeles City Council in a surprise move unanimously voted to ban possession of any detachable firearm magazine capable of holding more than ten rounds-- even those grandfathered a generation ago. You see, California in 2000 passed legislation banning new mags of this type, labeling them "high capacity" although they were standard in most models such as the Glock 19 and Glock 17, but allowed those who had them to keep them. Now, this is no more as anyone with a mag holding...
