Although I grew up with guns and was shooting BB guns by the time I was 8 or 9, I just recently started learning about concealed carry and handguns. And there is one thing about the whole brass life and the gun community that really intimidates me and almost makes me want to stand in the back of the crowd. I know some pretty knowledgeable gun people. People who have had years of shooting experience. I follow some very popular tactical trainers on Instagram. I watch range drills and gun reviews on YouTube. And almost every time, they’ll use a…

A Woman’s Review of the Tulster Profile IWB Appendix Holster

The kind of holster you carry with will make or break your concealed carry experience. Honestly you’re not going to carry everyday unless you’re comfortable. I’ve been looking for the concealed carry golden duo for a year and I’ve recently settled for the Glock 43 and the Tulster Profile Holster IWB (inside the waistband) and I’m not looking back. Here’s my experience with this holster after about 2 months of non-stop use.

10 Verses on Security

  I love being in my comfort zone. Things are predictable and safe. Very rarely am I thrown for a loop or get stressed out. Its a place of security (or so we think). About 3 years ago I had the chance to step out of my comfort zone and spend the summer cooking at a camp in the Canadian wilderness. It would be a huge adjustment for me, but I took the chance and went. At the beginning of the summer the camp director challenged us staff to pick a character trait and resolve to work on it during…
