editor’s letter

While it may seem like heresy in a firearms publication, we hold the opinion that having the skills to respond to violence without a gun is just as important as learning marksmanship. In a self-defense encounter, being equipped with more tools than a hammer means every problem doesn’t automatically look like a nail, and our chances of avoiding a life-changing outcome increase dramatically. If going to guns becomes the last option on a long list, rather than the only one you have, then you may not need that friendly lawyer, your bank account will be healthier, and you’ll probably sleep a whole lot better. Which is why in this issue of CONCEALMENT, Michael Janich returns to explain his system for dealing with an opponent who’s armed with a blade, Conrad Bui…

1 There are days when we want to be the Gray Man—that’s just about every day—but there are times it’s good to remind people we all have choices when it comes to facing violence. When it’s time to send a polite message, we’ll sport this T-shirt from Victory Wear. It’s made of buttery soft and stretchy tri-blend fabric (cotton, polyester, and rayon) that feels like a favorite, well-worn T-shirt from the first time you put it on. When it’s time to put up or shut up, we know which box we’ll check.

the professionals

The first thing you should note is that there aren’t any toy tops or spinners here. There also aren’t any beard combs, intricately ornate brass knuckles, or shot clocks. Or at least if any of the professionals featured in this piece actually carries one of those, they had enough sense to not include it — it’s like they don’t even know how to Instagram properly. Today we bring you some names you may recognize from across the firearms industry. Their backgrounds range from U.S. Army sniper to attorney, from law enforcement to competitive shooter. Despite these divergent life experi ences and careers, there’s an amazing amount of consistency regarding what they carry on their person. And no, this isn’t yet-another gaggle of Glocks. We implore you to explore what each carries, their…

It’s a love story. Sometimes it’s a brief courtship that leads to an inseparable bond, other times, a long tale of woe that leads to a tragic end; ultimately, we all hope to find that one, true partner that stays at our side through thick and thin. Alas, we get fat or move onto new sidearms and end up feeding that box in the back of the closet a fresh Kydex meal every now and then. There’s no end to our search for the perfect holster. Keeping in mind the romantic notion that somewhere out there, there’s a holster for everyone, we’ll use this space in each issue of CONCEALMENT to highlight the latest and most interesting holsters to hit the market. 1 MAKE BlackPoint Tactical MODEL DualPoint Holster System COLORS Black, Golden Brown, Crazy Horse MSRP $95 FURTHER www.blackpointtactical.com NOTES BlackPoint’s new DualPoint…

cover for action

The last several years have seen a veritable blossoming of the concealedcarry pistol market, as well as the culture of self-reliance that comes with it. And we strive to bring you the latest and greatest in carry guns. But sometimes you need to take a look back to move forward. Many of the features that we all consider standard fare for defensive pistols can be traced back more than 30 years to a man, whom most people have never heard of, and the pistols he built, which few have ever seen. We teamed up with Robar Guns in Phoenix, Arizona, to examine the innovations of this unique gunsmith and pay homage to his pioneering with a 21st century reimagining of his pistol that (we hope) would make him proud.
