I wouldn't want to have to depend on a taser to stop a threat. What I think is BS would be concealed carry in a small of the back holster, at least, not fot me.

The wife and I watch NCIS, NCIS nola abd the Criminal Minds shows and critique the pistols used. NCIS is what I would call traditional or more accurate from what I have read, in their weapon and carry choices (Sigs) where NCIS nola uses a mix of both Sig & Glock pistols and carry choices, especially the Pride character with his sob holster. I also notice that both Joe Mantegna and Tom Sellek favor a 1911 in their police caracters.

Excellent portrayal of the time it takes for an attack to occur. Another example that situational awareness is paramount at all times. Living in a colder climate, my weapon is buried beneath clothing for 5 months of the year. This video shows just how much of a disadvantage I am at.

I pocket carry and if things feel hinkey then I casually put my hand in my pocket so I have gun in hand. What will happen? I have no clue but I can draw and fire once in a second and a half.

After spending 15 years in Corrections I say the element of suprise always favors the bad guy. They know their intentions, while you don't. Inmates have nothing but time to think of how to outsmart the law. Criminals on the street are no different. Add to that element of surprise, many times you will find yourself outnumbered. Law enforcement officers deserve our respect and our gratitude. They lay their life on the line every day for us. We should always be observant of our surroundings and play a "what if" scenario through our mind. Sadly, with the economic state of our country, gangs, and illegals, the criminal element is increasing. Do a search on gang graffitti. If you see it in an area where you are driving....don't stop...."get gone" as we say in Georgia. Pay attention. Thanks for the video Tx.

So bringing a gun to a knife fight isn't a good idea, either.

Seriously, good video, though. I think a lot of us carry as much for the sake of feeling safe, even if in the real world, carrying may not make us as safe as we might think. I tend to look at it along the lines of, at least I have a chance if I do have gun. I have no chance without it.

As with overlord, most of the year, even more than his 5 months, carrying is under a coat or sweater or sweatshirt. Shirtsleeve weather is, at best, about three months and most years less than that. My one ace in the hole is our dogs. Should I have an issue with bears or other critters, the dogs would give me some warning. I hope.

To follow the above rule I will need to put a scope on my pistol.

I carry my Glock 23C and NAA 22 mag 24/7 . But there is time I also carry my S&W 642 in a front jacket pocket with it in my hand and I can point it at a bad guy in my pocket and not brandishing the gun . The S&W 642 is hammerless and will fire all 5 rds in pocket and not jam up . My Glock 27 hides good but not good for shooting in a pocket . You can only count on the 1st shot only . I carry my 23C in a bag below since I'm in shorts and T-shirt over 300 day a years in my part of Tx . If I unzip the top I can put my hand on the gun and not brandish it . Then I have the option of pulling out of the bag or shooting it in the bag which will probably jam after the 1st round is fired

TX ... Thanks for sharing the video. A great reminder regarding just how much distance can be covered by the bad guy during the time necessary to draw.

Good video, TX. One thing I like about my LCR is the totally covered hammer. Works, if necessary, to fire from inside a pocket. I agree with Terry. Most of my carry has been in a pocket with no holster at all. A gun in hand is worth three in a waisband.

It is true. A person can move fast and ambush you.
First rule of martial arts. Everyone is vulnerable.
I still would rather die on my feet than live on my knees.
A gun is just another tool.

I use a pocket holster as it helps keep some of the big lint out of the revolver. I use the Simply Rugged "Pocket Protector" and it is leather, works great and is short money.

This one of my pocket holsters which is rubberize on outside to stay in pocket when the gun is drawn for front pocket carry , but is not good for shooting in a jacket pocket . I use a old hunting trick of black electric tape over the muzzle to keep dirt and water out of bore and NO holster in front jacket pocket . Remember I always carry 1 high cap gun like my Glock 23C and a bug gun like my 642 or NAA 22 mag .



This is some of my BUG guns . Plus my NAA 22 mag around my neck not shown . Only the 642 can shoot 5 rounds in a front jacket and be 100% reliable .
