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. […]

That’s What She Said: Shivworks ECQC course with Craig Douglas

| July 6, 2016 | 6 Comments

I had some trouble starting this post. The ECQC course by Craig Douglas of Shivworks has generated a ton of technical content, both here and elsewhere. I decided to write ¬†from my personal point of view: a female defensive firearms student with no martial arts training and a deep seated fear of close quarter combat. […]

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 […]

ModuLoader Pocket Shield by MDTS and Raven Concealment First Impressions Review

Let’s travel back in time. Back to 2015. I was at the Rangemaster “Polite Society” Tactical Conference (my review). I had met a bunch of people who were about to change my life. One such person was Chris Fry, personal safety instructor and owner of MDTS. He taught one of the classes I attended, about […]

That’s What She Said: 2015 Review

Resolutions Schmesoloutions… On January 1 of 2015 I resolved to keep track of everything I learned. I wanted to see if it made a difference in how I felt about the outgoing year.

2015 Year in Review: Training

2015 Year in Review: Training

| December 18, 2015 | 7 Comments

I squeaked out just over 300 hours of professional, fight-focused training this year — 304 to be exact. Adding in lecture-only classes brings my total up to 320. This does not include practice time at home, or live fire at a shooting range. It also does not include the personal Kali instruction we’re getting. Here’s […]

The Shepherd has already written about the content of this class, but I have a few things to add from my perspective. Today I was called to be a good citizen and report for jury duty.

I was really excited to combine products from two of my favorite companies. It’s like tactical Reese’s peanut butter cups. I’ve written before about the Gen 3-M folding buffer tube stock adapter from Law Tactical, and we’re in the middle of our evaluation of the Angstadt Arms UDP-9 AR15 that accepts Glock magazines. Here’s a […]
