Ruger LCR 9mm Release

Recently Ruger has released a new caliber option for the Ruger LCR. Ruger has now introduced to the revolver market the new 9mm LCR. The 9mm has been a popular round for new gun makers in the recent years. Most have been focusing on smaller handguns and slim designs such as the Ruger Lc9. In the recent years manufacturers have been pursuing revolvers with the option of selecting 9mm, 40, and 45 calibers. What could be a better combination then having the LCR in 9mm?   Ruger known very well for its LC9 & SR9, 40, and 45 have put together a phenomenal piece for those who choose revolvers over the semi automatic pistols.

Gun Holster Options For Concealed Carry

In the recent years we have seen more and more holster makers storming the gun industry.  The options to carry concealed are now better then ever. I have listed a couple of different options and I will discuss each option in depth and compare the models.


Inside The Waistband (Clip-On) – Pro Carry HD

Pro Carry HD Black FrontThe following model is called the Pro Carry HD from The Holster Store. This model is a clip-on inside the waistband leather holster. This model is great for those who need to carry concealed and live in hot climates. The holster is compact and is easy to take on or off. This particular holster is molded exactly to the weapon which is the reason it does not have a strap going over the top. The mold gives the holster enough retention to keep it from falling out of your pants while doing any outside activity.

While this is a great option for those wanting to carry a weapon inside the waistband it can have some disadvantages. When carrying inside the pants you will normally need your pants to be a tad bit larger so that you can have enough room for the gun. Another reason inside the waistband might not be your desired carry option is because of it digging or jabbing into your side. Some manufacturers offer a slide guard feature OR a cant option which protect the person from this happening to them.

The slide guard is a piece of leather that comes up the side of a holster and covers the top portion of the gun. This keeps the features or buttons of the gun from digging into your side.

The cant option comes in forward or reverse. Moving the butt of the pistol forward or backward depending on the carry style you prefer. If carrying right behind the hip, the forward option is normally selected. The reverse cant is usually chosen when the carry style is crossdraw. These two options can eliminate the gun sticking straight up and jabbing into your ribs while giving you a easier draw position.

Outside The Waistband – Belt Slide – Pro Carry 7

ProCarry7The Pro Carry 7 from The Holster Store is a perfect example of a holster worn on the outside of the pants on the belt. For those who live in colder climates and often wear a light jacket or sweater this option is very common.
This style holster can come with or without a thumb snap that locks the pistol inside the holster for better retention. Like the Pro Carry HD this holster is also specifically molded to your weapon to provide superior retention. Tightening of the belt will also keep the pistol sturdy on the waistline and have natural draw position.

Depending on which leather maker you choose the holster can be made in various ways. Some holsters let the barrel be exposed and some completely sew the bottom shut. This is more of a personal preference and is not something to ultimately consider when looking for a functioning outside the pants holster.

Most models of this type come with a built in forward cant. This give the holster a perfect draw and allows for easy one hand reholstering. The cant will vary depending on which manufacturer you choose for your leather holster.


Small of Back – Pro Carry SOB

Pro Carry SOB EbayThe following carry method is one of the most controversial styles in the industry. Carrying the weapon in the small of your back is often criticized for two reasons.

The first issue people have with carrying the weapon in the small of the back is how they are carrying it. For example in the picture of the left a person would have to reach behind them with their palm facing away from their back. When drawing the weapon you would have to sweep the gun across your body which many consider dangerous. While this is one of the most comfortable and popular ways to carry in the small of the back, you will most likely hear people argue it is wrong.

Another way to carry the pistol is with the pistol facing the other way with a extreme forward cant. This can be awkward and very hard to draw depending on how flexible your arms are.

When choosing your carry option always go with what is most comfortable and feels right. The worst thing you can do is be uncomfortable.






Gun Ownership: It’s All About Responsibility!

Gun Ownership: It’s All About


Evil things – this is what some people would say when asked about they think about guns. With the prevalence of gun violence in some parts of the world, it is easy to give in and just accept this as the absolute truth. If you trace back its history, the gunpowder used in guns was invented by the Chinese not for the purpose of creating violence, but as a treatment for wounds. It was only later that people discovered that gun powder can be used as an ammunition for cannons and guns. It is true, guns were created originally as a means to fight other men in the battlefield.


This became the weapon of choice because its speed is unmatched and until now, there is no such weapon that could rival its performance. But man was not the brute creature he was once in the past (at least for most). Guns are still used in the military but civilians are also using these for sports and recreational activities like hunting.

Who is Qualified to Have One?

Know thy self! This is the first rule of thumb of gun ownership. Those involved in gun violence are people who have exhibited disturbing behaviors prior the said incident. A high IQ is not always an indication that one is a perfect candidate. Some recorded incidents of gun violence involved people who have more than an average IQ. After suffering from trauma, they lost their sanity and this prompted them to act irrationally. It can be difficult to determine if a person is qualified to be allowed ownership of a gun most of the time.What one feels on different occasions greatly vary. A person who feels overly exaggerated feelings of remorse on simple offenses should stay away from guns. The same can also be said about people who have elevated feelings of self-importance and think that they can get away with everything they do. Remember, one false move and a person could end up being hurt.

Getting a License

A license is not always necessary in order for a person to carry a firearm. Rules imposed will vary depending on country and states, and these may even be subject to the discretion of local authorities. Countries like Yemen, United States and Czech Republic are lenient when it comes to gun ownership while stricter rules are imposed in certain countries like China, South Korea and United Kingdom. For the countries that impose gun licenses, a background check is often a common requirement. However, it may be possible to get a license without taking this since a transaction between a seller and a buyer may allow one to get a gun without undergoing a background check. For states and countries that require a gun license, take note that failure to get one will have its corresponding sanctions and is punishable by law. A gun license is not a permission to shoot and kill. This is awarded on the condition that the gun will only be used following the conditions imposed by the law.

Becoming an Expert User

A gun is not a toy. It’s a weapon that could hurt people. The movies may have misled people into believing that there really is no big deal about its use. It’s not a child’s play that people could learn to use with their eyes closed. Depending on the gun, this will need to be handled accordingly. Its user must become familiar with its components, how to dismantle and operate this. It is vital that this too should be fired while exercising the correct posture. The fastest way to learn how to use a gun is to get training from an expert user. It is common for firs-time users to miss their aim. Even old-timers do this occasionally. This can be remedied with constant practice.
