When it comes to a concealed carry gun, how small is too small?

Republished from The Outdoor Wire . Recently, I met someone who was interested in the new Glock 43. He said that he was carrying a six-shot Kahr pistol and, due to size comparisons he'd stay with it. I'd wondered about carrying such a small gun as a primary self-defense tool and said so in an article. A reader replied. While I won't identify him, I'm going to post his comment here – noting that...

History relived at the Centerburg Conservation Club

When I got into the shooting I generally thought that people just went to the range once in a while for practice. The more I got involved in Second Amendment issues I found defensive shooting leagues were really big and seemed to be growing leaps and bounds as more people obtained their concealed handgun licenses. This made sense, because in those leagues a participant is given a possible...

Confessions of a Middle-Aged Woman Gun Owner

"You what?" My friend looked at me with a mixture of shock and admiration. We were having lunch at one of my favorite restaurants while I shared with her my secret.

New to Firearms? Overcoming the Fear Factor

We all have a fear factor, that one thing that makes us stop dead in our tracks or at least makes us think twice before we do something. I have several, but because I have friends who love me (in a familial and sadistic way) I will only disclose one: I have this thing about drowning. My palms get a little sweaty driving over big bridges, fishing in a bass boat or relaxing in a hot tub. No, you...
