Content... (and a lack there-of)

Trying to think of some longer posts to write, just for the sake of something longer and whatnot; and all I can think of is getting home in July, and wondering who makes a good AIWB holster for the LCP, and why is it so dang hard to find a good IWB mag holder for the same?  Any leads would be appreciated on that (looking for kydex, for I am a sweaty man.)

Boston Area

Thoughts go out to them, and if you're in the area, keep your head on a swivel and stay safe.  Sounds like one down (good... driving(?) by the Police, shot by the police, then possibly run over by his brother as he made his escape.  Sounds like he could have been wearing a Suicide Vest IED type device.  No doubt hoped to take quite a few with him.)


In the spirit of the Boy Scouts, Be Prepared. Have the tools you need, and the training required to use them.  Carry these tools when you think you may need them, no matter how small the chance seems.

The C-A-T Combat Application Tourniquet is, in my opinion, one of the better options out there. It's not perfect (the windlass was known to break on older versions) but it's easy to use with the correct training (part of the reason there are two of them on my person as I type.)

While this may not be something everyone should carry, it is something worth looking into for first responders, especially LEOs or other personnel working security at large events.  I know I will continue to carry one at least while working when I get home.

Tough Hook up for Pre-order

On good ol' Amazon.  The Tough Hook is an industrial strenght hanger intended for hanging really heavy stuff like body armor and SCUBA gear.  It even has a handle for carrying the stuff around.

I got in on the Kickstarter a while back, but they're offering advanced orders to further boost funding.  If you've got a plate carrier, it might be worth checking out.

Mossberg Expands 20ga. SD Offerings.

Looks like they're pushing out a couple pump 20 guage shotguns complete with extended tubes and ghost ring sights.  20" barrels (a little longer than I like for a 20ga HD, but oh well...) and either 13"LOP Bantam stock or an AR15 style adjustable setup.

Personally, I like the Bantam stock better, since it's a Mossberg and their safeties suck with a pistol grip.  It looks like they also dropped the pistol grip on the fixed stock down pretty drastically, which would give you improved control, but still be able to access the tang mounted safety.

It's a pretty tempting idea, since the little 20ga Remington 870 is currently pulling "bedroom duty," but there's an appeal for a Mossberg since I shoot right, and Manda shoots left.  The improved sights would be welcome as well.

PETA Drones... "stalk hunters."  I have a feeling the only "illegal" activity they're going to record is destruction of private property as some heavy shot tears through their little "drone."  I honestly have no idea what they hope to prove, but it should be pretty damn funny.

By the way, I don't really hunt, but I'd be willing to tag along with my 930 to provide AA cover for anybody requiring it.

Android Brick

Woke up and my Motorola Electrify is stuck in a "boot loop" and I'm on the wrong side of the world for customer service.  Sucky,  because it's my alarm clock and "mini-tablet."  Sucked it up and tried a factory reset, and no luck.

Any suggestions?
