Posts Tagged ‘Concealed Carry’

If you are going through the stages where you’re internally debating with yourself whether or not to carry a firearm, think about the following.

How would it make you feel if a criminal had total control; the power of life and death over you and your family with only the criminal having any say in whether you or your family lived or died.   Without having a firearm and a working knowledge of using that firearm to defend yourself and your family you would have absolutely no input into that scenario.  It is your right and your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.  Never forget that.

When it comes to the subject of favorite handguns for personal defense everybody has their own personal likes, dislikes, and opinions.  My selection was based on years and years of trying different makes and models, factoring in reliability, durability, accuracy, mechanical issues if there were any, as well as fit, feel, and function.  Of course appearance has to factor in somewhat as well.  So what is my favorite personal defense handgun?  It would have to be the full size Smith & Wesson M&P 45 in two tone finish.

When carrying concealed I find it is important to dress around the gun you plan on carrying.  Concealed means concealed so you need to balance keeping the weapon concealed with having it accessible if and when it might be needed.

During the months when the weather is cool and I wear heavier clothing such as long sweatshirts and jackets; I find it is very easy for me to carry a full size 45 semi automatic handgun or a full size 357 magnum revolver. When the weather turns warm I downsize to a compact 9mm.  That’s what works for me; you may find other options work better for you.

I can’t help but stress that a good quality holster and belt is essential.  I prefer leather but there are many fine kydex and nylon holster options available as well.  Put as much thought into your holster, belt and carry methods as you do into your firearm.  And above all stay safe.

When your shot placement is off target there are 5 common reasons why this occurs.

  1. Jerking the trigger which causes the front sight to move off target.  Corrective action is to slowly and steadily squeeze the trigger keeping your front sight on target.
  2. Recoil anticipation which also causes the front sight to move off target.  Corrective action is not to anticipate the recoil before it actually occurs.
  3. Improper trigger finger placement, when the trigger is squeezed at an angle, this causes the muzzle to move off target.  Corrective action is to maintain a straight, even finger placement on the trigger prior to squeezing off a round.
  4. Inconsistencies in grip, stance, strength or alignment.  Corrective action is to maintain correct and consistent grip, stance, strength and alignment.
  5. Improper zeroing of weapon.  Corrective action is to properly zero your weapon.  A proper zero on a weapon enables you to consistently make your point of aim equal your point of impact.

The Golden Horde refers to the mass exodus of the unprepared; from the cities to the suburbs and the rural areas after a disaster has ocurred.  They come looking for food, water and shelter whenever infrastructure has been decimated and they will loot anything and everything they can at your expense. 

If the power grid goes down for more than a few days; cities will become rapidly unlivable.  Without power; water and food distribution will cease, law and order will start to fail, crime, arson and full scale looting will begin and rape, assault and murders will escalate.

When people are cold, wet or hungry, for any length of time, it will peel away society’s civilized qualities and revert people back to an animal state; where survival at any cost becomes the norm.  You must make sure you are not in the path of the golden horde; but if you are, you must avoid detection, or if detected, be prepared to defend yourself.

As a prepper, you do not want to be a predator but you also do not want to be the prey.  In a survival situation consider all strangers as dangerous (stranger danger) and follow your pre-existing survival plan with modifications as needed.  Staying safe and alive is priority number one.
