what do you believe?

It’s just not getting any easier, is it? There are so many things to consider when it comes to personal defense. And with all of the “experts” shouting to be heard over one another, how do you know what to believe?When it comes to handguns, there are many very good ones. While the choice can be difficult, it might not be as critical as you think. Select one that’s well-made and that you’re willing to carry regularly, convenience aside. Whether it’s a revolver or semi-auto, striker-fired or a hammer gun, single-action, double-action or anything in between, if it proves reliable, you’re probably OK if you train with it until its operation doesn’t require you to stop and think about it.

BY FIRING A FULL MAGAZINE ON AN ADVERSARY… IT WOULD BE LIKE HITTING HIM WITH A SINGLE CHARGE OF BUCKSHOT.” The Seecamp has a slick slide—no sights; note the slot that acts as a loaded chamber indicator. “THE SEECAMP IS STILL ONE OF THE FINEST SMALL CONCEALMENT PISTOLS EVER MADE.

Yet, with all the new models out there, we often overlook one of the better designs that’s been with us for quite a while: the Seecamp. A LOOK BACK Back in 1981 or 1982 when Larry Seecamp developed the Seecamp mini-pistol, he sent me one…
