About SD Carry

As a young boy in Texas, I grew up with guns. They were basic tools, much like my grandfather's mitre box or pipe wrench, there to perform specific tasks when called upon. I was taught gun safety by virtually every male adult in my family. I spent eight years in the US Navy operating and maintaing various guns from .30 caliber to 5" rifles.

After a few years as a moderator on a popular gun forum, I learned that there is much disinformation, prejudice and plain ignorance about guns posted constantly on the internet.

This blog is dedicated to sharing worthwhile information about the increasing acceptance and practice of legal concealed carry in our country. There is much mis-information and wild opinion about this topic among its practitioners and the public in general. The moral, social and legal responsibilities of concealed carry are immense and must be understood and practiced by all who legally carry a gun.

There is also a vast amount of practical and useful information about carrying and the weapons themselves and I hope to be able to share some of that here. Your comments are welcome, but will be moderated by me before appearing on this blog.

Stay safe.

Mods come, mods go...

After wearing the LCP with the new Hogue grips for a couple of days in the Uncle George and the Nemesis pocket holsters I have removed them today and gone back to the stock skinny grips. If one was primarily wearing the LCP in an OWB, or some IWB holsters, these would probably work fine, and they do add thickness and heft to the pistol which improves the grip. However, they are just too big and somewhat sticky for pocket use. The Uncle George back pocket holster works very well with the stock LCP, but the Hogue grips add just enough width and friction to make a clean draw a sometimes thing. That is not acceptable for a self-defense concealed pistol. Things were not all that better with the Nemesis (or Remora) when carried in a pocket. Front or back, did not seem to make much difference. So, off they went and I'll probably sell them on my forum.
