Lifesaver Your article on speedloads for revolvers (August/September) was spot on. In 1974 I was involved in a gunfight as a police officer with three armed robbers, when I had to reload my revolver with a speed-loader. They were pretty new then and not something I was issued, but thought it might be a good idea to have with me. I ran out of ammo in the middle of the fight and was able to reload very quickly while other officers were reloading, two at a time, from issued dump pouches. One uniformed officer was shot in the chest while trying to reload. Speaking from experience these are must-haves for anyone carrying a revolver today. KEN HOWARD ALEXANDRIA, VA A Rigid Approach I read the excellent article by Jeff Chudwin titled “The Need For Speed”…

IN THEIR RUSH TO CONDEMN GUNS and gun owners, the mainstream media has overlooked—intentionally or otherwise—a critical statistic regarding firearms-related deaths. According to the most recent data from the Centers for Disease Control, accidental firearms deaths dropped by 24 percent from 2006 to 2015. Firearms are involved in less than 1 percent of all fatal accidents in the United States, and the current number of firearms accidents, per capita, is the lowest it has been since record keeping began in the early 1900s. Part of that decrease in gun deaths can likely be attributed to improvements in manufacturing technology, but there’s little doubt that the driving force behind the reduction of accidental firearms deaths is that shooters now have the insight and the tools they need to keep their firearms safely…

blackhawk premium leather

For many handgun owners, leather is still king of the hill when it comes to holsters for both concealed carry and field or range use. And since one of leather’s attributes is its good looks, why not have the best-looking rig you can afford? Enter the new line of premium leather holsters from Blackhawk, which aren’t cheap at $100 but they’re not bank-breakers either. They start with premium Italian leather, and they’re hand-formed and hand-finished for a great, comfortable fit. Available in antiqued or burnished brown—in inside-the-waistband and three-slot pancake styles, with a huge range of fitments for popular gun brands—no two holsters are alike, so your style will be your own. My inside-the-waistband clip model, designed to fit a Smith & Wesson J frame, is burnished brown and a…

THE BEST DRILLS ARE THE SIMPLEST, and it doesn’t get any simpler than this one. But at the same time it combines almost every skill a defensive handgunner needs. I find it especially good for double-action revolvers, which is primarily what I use it for. It takes no time to set up or run, which maximizes your training time, and you don’t need a case of ammo to do it. GEAR Shot timer DRILL The instructions are in the name: Five shots in five seconds at five yards. In addition, you’re shooting at a five-inch target. (Want simple? Draw a five-inch circle on a piece of 8.5x11-inch paper, then take it to a copy shop and, voila, tons of cheap targets.) Preferably this is shot from the draw, but Low Ready will…

the intel report

If you ever just want to shake your head at something, or want to remind yourself how important it is to be vigilant with carry guns, check out the TRANSPORTATION SECURITY ADMINISTRATION’S blog sometime. According to a post in June, TSA workers had discovered 92 handguns in carry-on bags at U.S. airports in a single week. Of these, 80 were loaded. This should be a cautionary tale for those of you taking to the skies for the upcoming holidays or general travel: Don’t forget to check your carry-ons for guns (and gun parts, ammo and knives) before you fly! Last June, GLOCK launched a safety initiative called Follow the Four. Glock says it’s encouraging gun owners to think about why they carry, what the Second Amendment means to them, and for…
