In this day and age, civil unrest is highly anticipated, which has swelled the ranks of many militias. Unfortunately this has encouraged individuals to consider preparing to fight. I do not like the way that militias go about training, and in fact, I find their methods and ideals to be derpy at best. Alot of these members participate in strictly conventional warfare training and training that does not prepare them for reality. In this article, I merely wanna talk about the kind of loadout that I would find to be respectable and practical, from the perspective of someone who has had to haul ammo and gear in combat. Not to pat myself on the back too much, but I feel that I have enough experience to give solid recommendations for efficiently operating in hostile territory.
There is a constant complaint about full size pistols that they are too large to be carried comfortably or without printing. The Clinger Holsters No-Print-Wonder V2 proves that there are holsters out there that can functionally conceal a full size pistol like the Beretta PX4 Storm. Though I would not classify this holster as the ultimate in comfort, it certainly has made carrying one of my favorite full size pistols easy.
Winchester is well known these days for their premium lines of self defense ammunition like the Ranger T-Series and the PDX-1. It is not often that we hear about the more generic ammunition produced by Winchester for self defense. In fact, it is common for people to steer away from using generic ammunition like this for self defense. My intention is to investigate whether this ammunition is actually fit for use in self defense. Is this economical line of ammunition any good, or should we keep paying a Dollar per round.
It has been a while since I took the Walther PPS out for some range time. I figured that I might as well give it a shot and see how I perform with it. While I was at it, I figured that it would be a good time to test other products like the Comfort Cling from Clinger Holsters and my preferred carry load, Remington 115 grain JHP. I had fun shooting the pistol, and I found some things that I think are very relevant to share.
Out of all the people that have a dedicated EDC system or kit, you can bet that they are going to have a knife, if not several on them. In this article, I figured that I would just add my input into the point of a carry knife and what I see them being good for.
There are plenty of modifications that you can do to enhance the performance of your firearms these days. The Beretta 92/96 series of pistols have their own of modifications available. Some are inexpensive and others are costly. Wilson combat is a big producer of products for 1911 and Beretta 92/96 series pistols. Usually the upgrades and services that they offer are not known to be inexpensive in the least. The Shok-Buff for the 1911 and the 92FS/96 is one of the few products that seems to fall in the category of affordable upgrades.
There is a new steel target company that is getting traction. Targets USA is based out of Alaska, but they have a site that you can order from if interested, and use the code: DOITRITEAK for 10% off your order.
The search for a good CLP that makes cleaning safe and easy has been my goal for a while now. I have been through cheap and expensive products that all promise to perform the best. Most of the time these products do perform, but only with repeated usage and adequate time. Fubar CLP is a bit different than any other product on the market because it is not just for use on guns. It can be used as an insect repellent, a light sunscreen, a mild antiseptic, and even a moisturizer. Surprisingly, the product performs very well as a gun cleaner and lubricant. It is not easily overwhelmed and overcome by fouling. Plus, the lemon Pledge scent is a nice touch.
For whatever reason, it is very popular for people to only recommend ammunition that is going to cost in the neighborhood of $1/round. I have done several tests with these premium ammunitions and with generic ammunition. I have found a few things that might be a little eye-opening when trying to choose whether to carry the Winchester JHP or the Remington JHP.
When it comes to a good fighting knife, I typically look to Ka-Bar for a good standard. The decades of experience in war as a fighting/utility knife has given this knife a good amount of seniority, as well as a legendary status. Heck, this knife is basically like the 1911 of the knife world; most experienced fighting knife that is still a standard for combat fighting/utility knives.
