editor’s letter

Welcome to the premiere issue of CONCEALMENT Today, more citizens are taking responsibility for their own safety than at any time in the history of the United States. Over 11 million of us have concealed carry permits, and many live in locales where permits are not required. The revolution that has been quietly wrought over the past couple of decades has been nothing short of remarkable — since the mid ’90s the vast majority of states have transitioned to “shall issue” status, where anyone meeting the legal criteria must be granted permission to carry a lethal weapon. Despite hysteria from the antifrearms crowd, the predicted bloodbath has never materialized — in fact, violent crime is currently at its lowest level since the 1950s. With that backdrop, how could we at RECOIL not…

new gear

1. Sneaky Bags makes some of the most hardcore frearm packs that aren’t covered in MOLLE or MultiCam. Its whole goal is to offer a secure means of transporting guns in the most discreet manner. The Spyder accomplishes this by looking like a racket bag on the outside, but is capable of housing a weapons platform inside. Made of 1,000-denier nylon and Mil-spec webbing, the backpack measures 27 x 9.25 x 5.5 inches — enough room for short-barreled rifes, personal defense weapons, and some side-folding rifes. To accommodate various situations and preferences, the Spyder’s straps can be adjusted to be carried like a backpack, a quiver, or a briefcase. Plus, there are various compartments and organizers. It’s available in black, charcoal, and navy blue. MAKE: Sneaky Bags MODEL: Spyder Covert Rife Bag MSRP:…

vehicle firearm storage

This past summer, my family embarked on a road trip to Yellowstone National Park that had us driving through several states. Like many of you, I prepare for every trip by planning for the worst possible scenario that I can imagine. My pack list often includes items we will need in case of emergency and supplies to help us if stranded, or worse. Traveling through several states poses an issue for concealed carry holders, because the relevant laws vary greatly from state to state. I rarely leave home without my sidearm and had to research the relevant options in each state our little group would pass through. From Washington state, our path meandered west and southwards through Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming. With a Washington concealed pistol license being recognized in Idaho…

edc options

Options — we all want them. Whether it’s selecting the color of our phone case or determining the nutritional value (or lack thereof) in our foods, we place a high value on the ability to choose. While a pistol will always be our No. 1 concealed carry weapon (CCW), we have to look to other everyday carry (EDC) options. So, with this in mind, we cast the spotlight on some non-firearm selfdefense tools that could serve well as backups EDCs. (Note: You should check your state, regional, and local laws to see if these tools are copacetic in your area prior to purchasing any of them.) 1.

fns-9c a belgian g19?

Historically, FNH has focused its efforts on creating frearms for militaries of the free world. While they sometimes adapted a few of their designs to be legally used by civilians, it wasn’t until recent times that they started producing frearms specifcally for the U.S. civilian market. Not since the time when mustaches, rather than beards, were all the rage has FNH offered a pistol designed specifcally for concealed carry. We aren’t talking about creepy Freddie Mercury versions either — we’re talking about bare-knuckle, factory worker handlebar ’staches. Their compact pocket pistols manufactured around the turn of the last century were meant to be carried in the pocket you didn’t have a watch in. Now FNH presents us with the FNS-9C, a fun-sized treat with a more modern outlook toward personal…
