Solo Active Universal Tablet Sling Bag for EDC Review

Solo Active Universal Tablet Sling Bag for EDC Review

| June 15, 2016 | 1 Comments

For the last three years I’ve carried an SBR or PDW in a bag every where I’ve gone with a few notable exceptions. Flying, going into federal buildings with metal detectors, and a half dozen other times such as attending SHOT Show or going to a professional sporting event. I’ve used the Adidas Rydell bag […]

That’s What She Said: Triggered

That’s What She Said: Triggered

  After I posted my review of the UnderTech compression short holster, I had a number of friends write in with suggestions for how I could protect the trigger. There were lots of ideas for Kydex trigger guards secured with lanyards, or custom trigger guards with clips securing them to the shorts. They were great […]

Force on Force classes simulate real conditions under which you may need to apply your self defense training. Their point is test your training while you are your everyday YOU. This is my 4th season of Force on Force classes with QSI Training. As far as I know, I am the only female student to test […]

I work downtown, and am often in close proximity to people I don’t know. Some times I have to wait in line with strangers, usually at lunch or dinner time. Here’s a short video on how I manage my bag while standing in line or in a crowd.

I’m Thinking About Going Back

Back to the AK, that is. I started my first two SBR projects about five years ago. One was my now failed Glock enclosure project, and the other was a Mini Draco AK47 SBR. I carried the Mini Draco for some time before opting for my AR15 pistol in .300 Blackout. The primary driver for […]

Guns in the Car: Don’t Go Back

Guns in the Car: Don’t Go Back

People should decide what’s best for them, but I don’t think people who have guns in their car should retrieve them and then respond to a terrorist attack or active shooter. The concept of a truck gun is not new to me. I grew up on a farm. My father used to keep a rifle […]

Getting a Head

Shooting pistols at longer ranges isn’t new. Shooting assailants in the head with a pistol is also not new. The “Mozambique Drill” (two shots to the body, one to the head) was still being taught when I started my fight-focused training. As time went on, head shots fell out of vogue. There was a lot […]

Why I don’t recommend two strap bags for EDC

Why I don’t recommend two strap bags for EDC

When I first started carrying my SBR AK47 almost three years ago, I mostly used the Agama backpack by Mountain Hardware. I chose the Agama backpack (or the High Sierra Soak hydration bag) because they were innocuous and blended into my environments. I was allowed to use my EDC bags and SBR / PDW in classes […]

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. That’s a lot of time spent on public transit, walking downtown, going to malls, stores, movie theaters, coffee shops, trade shows, conferences, and other densely populated areas. Over that period of time I’ve learned a few things […]
