    Concealed Carry Report free subscription

    It's junk AFAIC. Never seen such spam from a "newsletter" sign-up. The quantity is mind-boggling.

    how many of you carry a gun and pepper spray?

    Always. Where I live, I think it's more likely that I'll need the spray than the gun (though I always carry a firearm, of course). For pepper spray, I have Kimber's Pepperblaster II, which does not spray back into your face even if it's windy. It even has a (small) pistol grip and sights...

    Which speedloaders work w/ J frames?

    I highly recommend Jet-Loaders. They make the only spring-loaded speedloader for 5-shot J-frames. Night and day -- much faster -- compared to HKS/Safariland (I have those, too) and they clear a variety of grips without a problem.

    Too weak to rack slide?

    I've been through the exact same thing with my mother and while much good advice has already been given, I thought I'd add the option of an NAA Black Widow in .22 Magnum. I understand the bias against the .22. The Magnum out of the 2" barrel in the Widow achieves pretty decent energy. The...

    Impulsiveness = Jail time, even well intentioned

    I hope his license gets pulled; stories like this are harmful to those of us with brains.

    Bedside weapon

    Kel-tec Sub 2000 with 33 rounds of 9 mm hollow-points. Viridian green laser + light. And I'm a revolver guy. But in my home, I want as much ammo as I can get; wouldn't be comfortable with 6 rounds.

    Problems with my new 686

    Sounds like what just happened to my identical gun when the ejector rod came unscrewed. I screwed it back in tight and all was fine.

    Jerk at a gunshow

    I went to a Washington Arms Collectors gun show in Puyallup, WA last fall. There were some good military/LEO types and regular people there, and a crowd of, um, "interesting" people selling Nazi and Confederate stuff. A lot of the stuff at the show was crap and expensive. I won't be going back.

    What OWB holster for a j-frame?

    I like my Blackhawk Speed Classic a lot. Minimalist with good retention. Easy, quick draw. Not a million dollars.

    what kind of gun owner/shooter/ person are you?

    I immigrated to the US in the mid-90s from Sweden. I'm a proud father, city person who loves a good motorcycle ride out in the country, software engineer and musician, libertarian (largely), atheist, vegetarian, Thomas Jefferson fan, videogamer, police department volunteer with friends from all...

    Favorite load for S&W 442?

    I like and trust Gold Dot in +P for short barrels.

    S&W 442 or Glock 26..Which will conceal better??

    I have both (and a 642 as well) and would say that the J-frame conceals quite a bit better than the baby Glock. It's also a lot lighter. Its shapes are more rounded and hide better than the blocky Glock. Also, you'll have the option of pocket carry should you need it. The only concealment...

    Anyone else wish they made a smaller Revolver??

    I hear ya. Glock 26 is as small as I'll go as far as autos are concerned (tried smaller with bad results). Usually I carry my J-frame, but when I can't, the NAA Black Widow is my pocket gun. Five for sure, .22 magnum. Beats an unreliable .380 as far as I'm concerned. Best regards
