Video Game Inspired Firearms Purchases

A Note from the Brody K.: I’d like to welcome Matthew G. to The Line as a contributing author. The man has been a good friend for quite a long time, throughout our college days, and assisted several of my own articles during those years. We shared a mutual interest in Kalashnikov-pattern firearms, politics, and emergency preparedness protocols. 

I love video games, more particularly first-person shooters, survival horror and role-playing games. These three genres have been the places, where I’ve found the firearms, I want to own. I’ll be sharing the guns and the games, which have inspired me to expand my horizons as a gun owner, shooter, and instructor. I’ll go over them in the order, in which I played them.

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.

The CZ P-10C

As seen in Thunder Roads LA-MS Jan. 2019 & Feb. 2019 Vol. 15.

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.

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.

Control

As seen in Thunder Roads LA-MS July 2018 Vol. 14 – Issue 7.

Handling your sidearm is like handling your vehicle. If you are negligent or arrogant: a severe cost could result. On the range you could see stove-pipe jams, a wide shot pattern on target, and experience having to take more time reacquiring between shots. In a gunfight these errors could very well get you killed. One training factor is how you grip the handgun. For semi-automatic handguns, I recommend the Combat Grip. This grip is also referred to as the Leatham-Enos Grip, in case you want to do more research, and it’s also commonly referred to as the “thumbs forward” grip.
