Best Holster for the VP9SK

Our store was one of the first to get a hold of the new HK VP9SK. I am a huge fan of the VP series so naturally, I kept one of the SK's for myself. I always go for a good run and gun session with a new pistol before deciding if I like enough to carry it off-duty. And yes, of course I liked it. The VP9SK is just like my full size VP9 but in fun size! Lets start with what I don't like from most concealed carry IWB holsters. I don't like when the end of the pistol grip digs into my kidney area. This usually isn't any particular gun's fault. This is caused when when a...

H&K VP9 Definitely a Good Decision

I had been thinking about buying the Heckler & Koch VP9 for at least a year. It got to the point where I was thinking about everyday. I don't know why I was fixated on this particular pistol. I shoot plenty of awesome weapons all the time. Some people smoke a cigarette or have a drink when they're stressed. Not me. I binge shop online when I get frustrated or stressed. I don't remember exactly which incident set it off but, I had one of those work days that made me want to buy something to make myself feel better. So, I soothed my nerves buy ordering an H&K VP9. As soon as I clicked the submit order button, I...

Custom Springfield Model 67 Series E 12 Gauge Shotgun

I inherited a Springfield Model 67 Series E 12 gauge shotgun from my Grandfather many years ago. I left it in original factory configuration for a few years before changing the butt stock and forend. I replaced the wood furniture with a polymer pistol grip, a different forend, and added a single point sling.I already had a couple of 12 gauge long guns and decided to customize the Springfield 67 for two reasons. I wanted to change the look and I wanted a 12 gauge in a more concealable size. By “concealable” I don’t mean trying to hide it in a trench coat or anything like that. I mean something I can stash away easier. This smaller 12 gauge would...

Customized Ruger AR-556

I purchased a bone stock Ruger AR-556 during the time when everyone thought Hilary was going to win the election. Prices were a little higher back then. I paid a little over $700. Prices are currently hovering around $650 or so as of March 2017. I knew from the get go, I was not going to leave it in its factory configuration.Here's what it looked like before my modifications. This black AR-556 actually belongs to my friend Will. I took these pics the same day we zeroed both rifles in. I thought it would be good to take a pic of both rifles to show the difference between a factory stock AR and a customized one. I noticed Will's rifle...

Review on Beretta 96 Vertec with Wilson Combat Upgrades

This is not my current duty weapon but, at some point during my career, I carried a standard all black Beretta 96. Working evenings, I finally decided to purchase night sights. I found out that the stock sights were permanent on my particular model. Trijicon makes a type that actually covers up the permanent sights. Putting these on would raise my sight height a little. I wasn't too hip on that. My father who owned a Beretta 96 Vertec Inox, generously offered to trade guns with me. The 96 Vertec is the same caliber but, with modern features such as removable sights, a rail, and a slimmer grip with a different angle. I took him up on his offer. His...
