Handgun Self-Defense: Move to Stay Alive

by W.H. "Chip" Gross

If you ever become involved in a self-defense situation, it will likely occur suddenly, unexpectedly, and could turn very violent very quickly. And if you feel threatened to the point that you choose to draw your concealed handgun, remember that it’s now a gunfight, not target shooting.

Cold Weather Concealed Carry Tips

It's time to get your furnace ready for the winter months, and also time to get yourself ready for winter concealed carry.

That means rethinking how you draw from concealment. On cold winter days, you could be dealing with base layers, a heavy shirt, bulky jacket, and underneath it all your concealed gun.
