Magneato Magnetic MK-1 Holster Review

By Sandra Kozero. The Magneato holster did a great job at a great price. It kept my pistol safe and where I placed it. The trick is not in the holster, but in the waistband of the pants. I will definitely add the Magneato to my daily holster options and use it when a belt is not available due to my outfit.

Dene Adams Body Shaping Thigh Holster Shorts Helps You Welcome in Spring

One of those options for carrying under a longer skirt or sundress is the Dene Adams Body Shaping Thigh Holster Shorts. I initially had a few concerns. Would the fabric be heavy and hot, feeling like a girdle? Would the trigger be safely covered in a fabric holster? I’m happy to say I can answer “no” to the first question and “yes” to the second.

Book Review: The Gift of Fear

By Sandra Kozero. The Gift of Fear and Other Survival Signals That Protect Us From Violence is a must-read for anyone who owns a firearm for protection against personal and family threats of violence. We must be able to differentiate between, and correctly respond to, actual life threatening situations and inconsequential head noise. Although de Becker does not challenge our second amendment right, he frequently outlines the possession of firearms as an indicator to violence and even wrote a separate appendix section focusing on “Gun Safety.”

Gear Review: Voodoo Tactical Mini Tobago Backpack

My final analysis is that the Voodoo Tactical Mini Tobago Pack has proven itself to be a great all-around, multi-purpose day pack. It is sturdy and roomy, without being so oversized as to be unwieldy for grab-and-go use. But it also has the features of a much larger “tactical” pack, making it capable and organized where other daypacks fail. I give it two enthusiastic thumbs up.

Shotgun Fit: Understanding Stocks

There are many factors involved in shooting a shotgun accurately, but one of the most important and least understood is gun fit. Most manufacturers offer a standard stock dimension, something that fits the average shooter. Since shooters don’t have an opportunity to choose between different stock sizes and configurations, they just accept the gun as it was built and learn to shoot what they have. In a perfect world that wouldn’t be the case – every hardcore target shooter would be able to walk into a gun store, just like walking into a shoe store, and pick a gun stock as perfect as the right pair of shoes. It may seem daunting, but getting the right fit isn’t nearly as complicated as we make it out to be. The measurements are easily understood and it would behoove every shotgun shooter to be on speaking terms with them. The most important thing to keep in mind is that almost all stock measurements start at the rib line and go down. This article describes parts of the stock and some of the measurements in a rough order of importance.

Changing the Rules for Tools

I usually come back from SHOT Show with a list of guns I want to buy, but this year was different. This year I found a NEW favorite thing, and it’s NOT a gun! Believe it or not – it’s a phone case. But it’s not the case itself that makes me so excited. It’s what the case holds that makes me happy. This phone case holds … tools! This set-up is from Klecker Knives and Tools and they’re called Stowaway Tools. These tools (up to four at a time) take up no more room than my traditional phone case already does, and my phone never leaves my body while I am awake, so I am more prepared for emergencies now without any extra hassle. And the piece de resistance: real tweezers! I’m telling you, Leatherman tweezers are wholly inadequate for use by a middle-age female.
