I focus the majority of my time and effort into public awareness campaigns regarding firearms and the 2nd Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. To these ends, I run This Is The Line. I also write many of these articles for Thunder Roads Louisiana-Mississippi magazine.

The Czech List

A continuation of the CZ P-10C chronicles, if you will.

It’s been quite awhile since my last post. Fortunately, with time, it allowed for a lot of testing to be done on a number of platforms. Several thousand rounds have been put downrange in my time away. Today, we’ll be going back to the P-10C from CZ-USA. The biggest reason for this is because it has completely replaced the Glock as my everyday concealed carry sidearm.

G-Code Holsters

As seen in Thunder Roads LA-MS Gulf Coast July 2019 Vol. 15, Issue 7.

In early 2013, Haley Strategic Partners teamed up with G-Code Holsters to develop a top-of-the-line, Inside The Waistband holster. From my understanding, this collaboration came of insights in difficult and disruptive environments training. I had been following Travis Haley’s work since the earlier days of my involvement with firearms. I had been interested in finding a properly hidden IWB holster for use at the 4-o’clock position, but no luck was had until the release of the INCOG holster.

A dedicated customer base will let a company know what they desire in future products. At that point, you will see one of two things happen. The company will either listen fully and apply all the changes appropriately or the company will go their own way. There are two sub-categories to the latter. The company will apply changes in their own manner or not at all.

Rock Island Arsenal

As seen in Thunder Roads LA-MS Nov. 2018 Vol. 14 – Issue 11.

Early in October, I was fortunate enough to have enough time to visit Rock Island Arsenal Museum and see their small arms collection. I can say that I was not disappointed with the collection on display. There were firearms that I had both never heard of nor seen and firearms that I have always dreamed of seeing. Among these were some Special Purpose Individual Weapons (SPIW) Program  firearms and the Cadillac Gage Stoner-63 machine guns, respectively. There are over 1,000 firearms on display. Unfortunately, a couple of years ago, the number of displayed pieces was cut drastically, and those firearms were stored in Alabama.

The Makarov

As seen in Thunder Roads LA-MS August 2018 Vol. 14 – Issue 8.

Firearms technology has evolved heavily, since the end of World War II, across all platforms. It is debatable on whether the modernization of firearms became simpler or more complex over time. The materials have certainly changed but, due to optimizations for many different end-user aspects, it seems as if modern designs are more complex by comparison to the preceding models. The 9×18 Makarov handgun has an uncanny beauty about it and is very specifically tailored.
