re: in praise of the belly band holster - dawg23
I have quite a few students who use a belly band (various brands). Two are nurses who wear them under their scrubs. I realize the following link won't apply to you (and maybe it has been posted here before), but it might be of interest to spouses/SO's who haven't thought about belly bands, and va...

re: Recommendations for auto inflating life jacket - dawg23
[quote]"Hydrostatic Inflator Technology will automatically inflate under water pressure, not inadvertently in rain, spray or humidity" [/quote]This. Some older, cheaper models have a salt pellet (bobbin) that dissolves when wet, activating the inflation system. Inadvertent spray can dissolve the ...

Anybody Own/Try/Test the M&P M2.0 - dawg23
I don't really put much faith in Youtube pistol tests, nor in most online gun reviews, nor in gun magazines. But I'm curious/interested in the new M&P M2.0 -- so I did some searching. I have a full sized M&P9, and a 9mm Shield, and I see M&P's come through my classes quite a bit. So when I saw th...

AR15 Red Dot Sight Co-Witness - dawg23
I ran across this article on Greg Ellifritz' blog. It's a pretty detailed discussion of absolute (100%) vs. Lower 1/3 co-witness. It may be helpful to some folks here who are buying/building an AR.[link=(http://www.breachbangclear.com/ll-sight-cowitness/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss)]LINK[/link]...

How To Hide Weapons in a Vehicle - dawg23
Greg Ellifritz recently posted this link in his blog. Not sure how helpful it'll be, but some of it might be useful. As the author points out, most of this is for "[i]long term storage,[/i]" as opposed to "[i]conceal it while you run into Circle K for a slurpee."[/i] [link=(http://www.askaprep...

re: Concealed carry for veterans - dawg23
Good info - I'm always interested in feedback. And I appreciate the fact that you knew I was joking (my redneck attempt at humor). As far as the original "issue": 1. I try to maintain a strict limit on class size. My conference room is small, so 10 people gets crowded. Adding another chair bec...

re: Infrared cameras on Bourbon st to detect concealed guns?? - dawg23
As I said earlier, I have no idea of about the state of the technology. But I think the legal issues alone will stop the city from installing them in public spaces. I don't think they can stop private property owners (like bars) from installing them. I can picture signs with language saying "By e...

re: Concealed carry for veterans - dawg23
Not sure how this works -- I don't know anyone who opted for the five year permit. I do know that you'll have to take a class every 5 years. PLUS, the regular five year permit exempts you from the NICS background check, but the lifetime permit does not.(Which is why very few people opt for the l...
