Cracked Keepers Concealment Holster…Again

So…while getting changed to work out I took off my AIWB rig and set it on the bathroom counter.  It’s only then when the light hits it just right I see a big-ass crack on the trigger guard.  “Awww…Fuck!”, was the spontaneous utterance that is admissible in court.  I’d have to look it up. But this is the second Keepers …

The Keeper Wedge Replacement

One thing that came up recently in regards to AIWB carry was the concept that some holster designs are consumable. At least parts of them are. Instead of trying to explain this concept, it’s just easier to show it in pictures.  The triangular “wedge” you see works as a lever against your holster. The belt is the pivot point. And …

Replacing The Keeper Foam Wedge

Well it’s that time again. The need to replace the foam wedge on my Keeper AIWB holster. For those who don’t understand the mechanics of the wedge, it works as a lever to push the butt of your pistol inboard towards your body. However, that foam wedge is soft and pliable. So over time, it degrades and looses it’s shape. …

Replacement Keepers Concealment Holster Issue

It has displayed a bad tendency that I will need to clean up. When the holster is under compression, it ejects the pistol magazine during insertion. Not great. Luckily, it appears to be an easy fix. As I type, I am currently out of town on business. I filmed this the day before I left. More to come when I …

Video — This is a Good M&P Holster

Time for a update to a previous video: THIS IS A BAD M&P Holster. The main issue was the lack of tension in that design. I suspect it is because the manufacturer was trying to save money by selling M&P Compact holsters as working with the Shield. While the basic footprint is similar, the width of the slide causes the …

Jamie Gilt Shot by 4 y/o Son

Have to be honest. Before this story broke about this incident, I had never heard of this woman. It seems she has been making a name for herself by promoting gun rights for women, moms, or kids or families or something? Not really sure. But she seems to be pro-gun and public about it. Which is great in my book. …

The Keeper — My Daily CCW Holster

I occasionally get questions about what my preferred carry holster is. I purchased this some months ago and have been giving it a fair shot. Truth be told, it has been worn everyday. And will continue to be so. It’s an appendix design. I have always preferred appendix style carry for about 20 years. Back in the day, we used …

Pushups and AIWB

Ok. I have finally found something that isn’t optimal when carrying AIWB: Pushups. I maintain a specific level of physical fitness. And one of the requirements are sets of 80 pushups. Why 80? Well for one, it’s a lot. And two, I can always gut out 100 when some jack wagon requires it.   It’s a habit I picked up …
