The Fat Boy's Guide to Concealed Carry:

THE FAT BOY’S GUIDE TO CONCEALED CARRY:   By:  Spats McGee Introduction: First and foremost, I’ve carried a concealed firearm in virtually every legally-permissible setting over the past nine years.  I learned a lot by reading, and I learned a lot by doing.  With that said, if you’ve been carrying a concealed handgun for years, I’ll tell you right now that this guide probably doesn’t cover anything you don’t already know.  I wrote this guide for people who are either consider

The Ultimate Cliploader: A Review

The Ultimate Cliploader:  A Review   For years and years, I owned a Ruger .22 pistol.  You know the one, looks a bit like a Luger, long, thin, 10-round magazine?  Actually, now that I think about it, mine was a 9-round magazine, but that's neither here nor there.  I got it before they started calling them “Mark” whatever.  It was a good little pistol, and I enjoyed shooting it.  Right, wrong, or indifferent, though, so did Mrs. McGee.  (As an aside, if you’re taking a wife or girlfrien

A Postcard from The Doghouse

A Postcard from The Doghouse     As any married gun owner knows, there are more ways to anger a wife than there are wives in this world.  What follows is a tale of a married man, bad timing, and five thousand rounds of ammunition.   Many gun owners will remember the .22 Drought of 2008-16, which began with the election of Barack Obama.  After his election, .22 Long Rifle ammunition disappeared from shelves across the country.  Every morning, the ammo flippers descended o

Holster Review: StealthGear Revolution IWB:

Holster Review:  StealthGear Revolution IWB: Many concealed carriers have a “box of holsters” that we rarely if ever use.  The holsters that occupy these boxes are the result of trial and error in figuring out what we like in holsters.  I’m no different.  My first holster was an OWB leather, but I’ve tried just about every design out there:  IWB, OWB, Kydex, leather and hybrid.  OWB Kydex is fine if I’m out in the wilds, but not so well if I’m in town running errands.  For that, I greatl

The Test of Time, Part II: The DeSantis Econobelt

The Test of Time, Part II: The DeSantis Econobelt If you read last review, you know a little bit of my history.  My first actual gun belt was an Aker B21.  Several months after I bought my Aker B21 that I mentioned in that post, I decided that I couldn’t wear the same belt every day.  A lot of guys can, because they work in jobs where matching your belt to your shoes really isn’t an issue.  By contrast, I wear a suit to work.  I wear a suit about 4 days a week, and while it’s unlikely th

The Test of Time, Part I: The Aker B21

The Test of Time, Part I:  The Aker B21   If you carry a gun on your hip, then your gun belt is the whole foundation of your carry system.  Years ago, I discovered the value of having a good gun belt.  It turns carrying a pistol from “always hitching up my pants” into “comfortable stroll.”  Unfortunately, I figured this out at a time when money was in exceptionally short supply for me and my family.  That meant that $100 for a belt was out of the question.  Every purchase had to be ver
