The Capital is the replacement, but unfortunately it’s a poor successor. Things I dislike about the Capital: The main compartment opens at a flatter angle, which makes […]

Handling Your Bag In Public: Setting Your Bag Down

| August 26, 2015 | 2 Comments

I’ve been carrying a PDW or SBR in an everyday carry bag for about two and a half years.

I Carried a Rifle to Work for Two Years and You Wouldn’t Believe What Happened!

You wouldn’t believe what happened during that time: ABSOLUTELY NOTHING Contrary to hand-wringing anti-gunners, none of the following happened: The firearms never “just went off” and hurt anyone.
