According to the NSSF, around 8.4-million Americans decided to buy their first gun last year. We suspect that the majority of those purchases were handguns, followed by a healthy smattering of shotguns and semi-auto carbines — in short, pretty much what you see in the pages of CONCEALMENT every issue. While there isn’t (nor should there ever be) a box on the 4473 that asks the reason for the purchase, I suspect most new gun owners would respond to the effect that protection of self and loved ones was uppermost in their minds when they slid their credit card across the glass in the gun store. This new influx of gun owners represents an opportunity for all of us, but like most opportunities, there’s also a threat. The opportunity should be…

1 SUPERESSE EDC POCKET TIN www.superessestraps.com DIMENSIONS: 2 by 1.06 by 0.44 inches MSRP: Starting at $28 NOTES: What do you get when you mate together a box of mints, a prepackaged survival kit, and Rick Moranis’ shrinking machine? Whatever it is, it’s probably not going to be as cool as the EDC Pocket Tin. This simple-yet-ingenious concept consists of a small tin can filled with a kit (or kits) of tiny self-preservation supplies that you select. There are more than a dozen kits, each one themed — e.g. first aid, tactical ops, escape and evasion — and containing items ranging from CLP lube and cotton squares to a saw shim tool and non-metallic handcuff key. You can also pair it with a custom-made Kydex sheath, with or without a belt clip and lanyard. 2 STAND…

The middle of a pandemic-inspired firearms panic rush isn’t a convenient time to be looking for a self-defense-oriented handgun. Especially if you’d prefer it to be chambered for a reasonably common modern caliber and not be made of recycled Matchbox cars. Things were looking grim until I happened to glance in the showcase at Indy Arms Company. There on display, among the dust motes and the Sig P320 grip modules artfully arranged to make it look like the handgun shortage wasn’t so dire, was a used Bond Arms Roughneck with a price tag that was tantalizingly close to my cutoff point. Sure, you have to forego such luxuries as a slide or a magazine or capacity or real sights, but it’s undeniably an all-steel 9mm Luger handgun. The derringers from Bond Arms are…

PHLSTER SUMMIT phlsterholsters.com FITS: Glock 19, 17, 34, 43x, 48 MSRP: $119 NOTES: At first glance, the outside-the-waistband Summit seems a bit out of character coming from a company that made its mark with appendix holsters. However, this odd lineage actually attracts us to the Summit. The holster has the usual array of holster adjustments — cant angle, ride height, and so on — but what sets the Summit apart is its use of wedges to fine-tune the grip angle, loop position, and grip rotation. The holster arrives in a worrisome number of pieces, but PHLster’s concise video instructions make things very clear. Your two main points of adjustment are made using the included wedges and the placement of the holster’s wings on the inside or the outside of the holster body. The wedges push or pull…

www.tigatactics.com Profession Doctor of Chiropractic, BJJ and Muay Thai instructor at World Team USA, Chief Training Officer at Tiga Tactics Current job title Owner of Aim High Chiropractic, Cofounder of Tiga Tactics Describe your residence and its occupants as it relates to protective or defensive decision-making. I live in the crowded city of San Francisco in a two-level home that is detached. I mention “detached” because most homes in San Francisco are attached. All the bedrooms are on the second floor, close to each other, allowing easy communication. I have a family with a couple of teenagers in the house and everyone knows what to do and where to go in an emergency situation. Law enforcement response time in San Francisco averages about four minutes (according to sfgov.org), but I have read that it can be…

@missheraux Profession Entrepreneur Current job title: Co-owner of Pew Army Describe your residence and its occupants as it relates to protective or defensive decision-making. Myself, my husband, Dennis, our two children, and our family Cane Corso reside in a single-family home, surrounded by my long-time neighbors. My home is located in a cul-de-sac in a quiet suburban neighborhood. I’m familiar with almost all of my neighbors, as well a as who occupies their homes. Our neighborhood only has one official entry and exit. However, there are other unofficial paths in/out due to a railroad track being close by and wooded areas leading out of the neighborhood. How does your home/neighborhood environment affect your choice of home defense/bedside firearm and defense items? Since our children’s bedrooms are closer to the front of the house and our room is closer…
