That’s What She Said: Weaponology by Ed’s Manifesto

That’s What She Said: Weaponology by Ed’s Manifesto

| November 14, 2016 | 3 Comments

… it’s like arts and crafts with your favorite uncle who could totally kill you. Day 1 The two day Weaponology class from Ed’s Manifesto started with hand-to-hand techniques that are not covered in most martial arts or self defense classes. It’s because they’re terrible. And brutal. And my absolute favorite. Much of the work […]

| October 27, 2016 | 6 Comments

Here’s an update on my primary EDC bag and its contents. I continue to carry my Adidas Rydell sling bag the vast majority of the time (98%?). It’s starting to show signs of wear, and I will do a post about this in the future. However, it still does exactly what I want to do, […]

Moo Luxe vs GotPrint Trifecta Business Card Comparison Review

| October 19, 2016 | 3 Comments

Today we’re going to talk about business cards. This might seem like a weird EDC item to talk about on a blog about SBRs and learning how to taint-stab people while upside-down in a car. However, many of you are businessfolk, consultants, instructors, or content creators, so I hope you’ll find this post of interest. […]

On September 17, 2016, an Islamic terrorist attacked the Crosswoods Center Mall with two knives. An armed citizen responded — off-duty law enforcement officer, 3-gun competitor, and firearms trainer Jason Falconer. He stopped the threat and escaped without injury.

Handling Your Bag in Public: Strapped

Handling Your Bag in Public: Strapped

| September 19, 2016 | 0 Comments

When I meet my friends out in public for a sit-down meal or a cup of coffee, I stow my bag in one of two positions: at my feet, or in a chair next to me. This is what I do to reduce the chance of the bag being stolen, and also to keep track […]

YouTube channel viewer PerfectTangent asked What informs your decision to carry a given bag with a given weapon on a given day? Situation? Taste? This article will address why I choose the bags / tools to carry at any given time. This is not an article about what I look for in a bag (see this […]

Yukon Outfitters Overwatch Tactical Sling Bag First Impressions Review

Yukon Outfitters Overwatch Tactical Sling Bag First Impressions Review

| August 26, 2016 | 1 Comments

I am a big believer in one-strap bags worn across the body. They offer a good mix of retention, support, and accessibility. Of all the one-strap bag types (messenger bag, satchel, laptop bag), my favorite is the sling backpack. At $30 – $50, the Overwatch by Yukon Outfitters is an overtly “tactical” bag with some […]

In February of this year, we hosted Rob Schoening of LHGK and his “Bullets, Blades, and Bandages” trauma class (our review). Rob led a great class and had a bunch of interesting things to say. One of the things I found thought provoking was breaking up a larger trauma kit into smaller ones. Each smaller “bleeder” […]

Foster Impact Devices Coin Purse Review

Foster Impact Devices Coin Purse Review

I first saw the Coin Purse from Foster Impact Devices at ECQC in 2015. Shivworks instructor Craig Douglas showed it to a few attendees. I was curious about it, but had so much other stuff going on in my mind that I didn’t remember where he got it from, or exactly what it was called. […]

Things Gun Owners Should Know About Joining a Jiu-jitsu Academy

Things Gun Owners Should Know About Joining a Jiu-jitsu Academy

After my second Shivworks ECQC class, I’ve resolved to get more grappling training. However, I carry a lot of tools, and I wasn’t sure how these would integrate into a Jiu-jitsu academy (or similar). What do I do? What do I say to the owner of the academy? What other things should I know about training […]
