    Light or No Light?

    I recently started carrying my Glocks with a TLR-1S in a Safariland holster. I wouldn't use this as a replacement for the Streamlight that's a part of my EDC, but I figure since it's on there for home defense, it might as well be on there 24/7. Here's my current rig. How many of you guys...

    Texas Senate Passes Guns On Campus

    It'd be awesome if Maine allowed something like this. So far, it's limited to keeping guns locked in cars, but hopefully that will transition to allowing on-person carry. "During the debate on the Senate floor, Democratic Sen. Jose Rodriguez of El Paso argued the bill would lead to allowing...

    Ruger Mini-14 Will Be Both Legal AND Illegal Under Gun Ban

    Yet another example of why Feinstein's ban will once again do NOTHING to stop crime. http://www.ksl.com/?nid=148&sid=24126723

    Bill to Make CCP Information Private

    Nice! But of course the Press Herald is opposed to it. A clear example of choosing which rights to support. http://www.pressherald.com/politics/Maine-lawmker-proposes-making-concealed-carry-info-private.html

    IWB Holster for Glock 22 w/TLR-1S

    I just ditched the Viridian for a TLR-1S with a contour switch. Much better! And I also got a Safariland 6377 for OCing, but now I'm looking for a CC holster to accompany my Glock and Streamlight. I've been looking hard at some Blade Tech holsters. Anyone have any experience with them? Or have...

    Gun Store Uses Feinstein's Name To Promote Gun Rights

    Thought this was both amusing and ironic! http://dailycaller.com/2013/01/11/gun-parts-store-registers-sen-feinsteins-domain-name-uses-it-to-promote-gun-rights/

    Sig P229 or Walther PPQ?

    In a month or so, I'm looking to buy either a Sig P229 SRT or Walther PPQ, both in 9mm. I had a .40 PPQ, and I LOVED IT, but had to sell it due to financial difficulties. Of course, it's hard to beat a Sig, but which would ya'll suggest? Other purchases I'm considering instead of another...

    The End Of Open-Carrying In Maine?

    Keep in mind this was written and posted by the Press Herald, so take it with a grain of salt. A group of Maine police chiefs plans to ask the Legislature to tighten the law allowing people to openly carry guns in Maine. The chiefs scheduled a meeting for later this month on the issue after...

    Unloaded Magazines on Airplanes

    A few days before Obama's awe-inspiring press conference around gun control, I ordered some 30-round AR mags from Brownells. Long story short, the order was delayed, I tried to cancel a few times, but they went ahead and charged me/shipped it despite having been told it was cancelled. Soon...

    Issued Citation for OC'ing In My Driveway Tonight... 5 Squad Cars Necessary?

    This is going to come out as a jumbled mess at first, just so I can write everything down. I'll organize it later. I stupidly did not record any of this. At 9:49PM today, I called 911 because I noticed there was a man asleep in my driveway while I was taking out the trash. I tried speaking to...

    Holster for Glock 22 with Viridian X5L

    So I'm FINALLY getting an X5L next week, but I have been unable to find any name-brand holsters that will accommodate a full sized Glock 22 with an X5L mounted. That, and I also need one that's left handed. Anybody know of any? Doesn't need to be locking, but some retention would be nice, that...

    Where Did You Carry Today

    So, I've seen these on a few other state forums and I thought I'd try starting one. I'm interested in hearing about OC experiences here in Maine, especially the Portland area. Yesterday, I OC'd to Bangor Savings where I got a few questions by one of the tellers who knows me. One of the ladies...

    Gun Procedure in Courthouses?

    I have court tomorrow on Newbury Street in Portland. I know that firearms are prohibited from entering the courtroom, but I'm unable to find anything about the process for having one in the courthouse at all. I haven't been in this courthouse, so I'm not sure if there's a place where I can store...

    City/Town Ordnances?

    Hey all, I'm trying to find a good place to see all of the town/city firearm ordnances. More specifically for Cumberland. My buddy's father owns some land there and said he'd let us build a range of sorts as long as we're following all the rules. Which would be sweet! Anybody know them off the...

    Active Shooter Scenario Video

    Thought this was interesting enough to share. I'd like to think mine would be more along the lines of "Draw.Aim.Shoot", but you really never know until you're in that position, and I hope I never am...

    Jogging Gun?

    So, I've decided to start going on outdoor night-runs instead of running on the treadmill. I'd really like to carry more than my streamlight and karambit, but the last time I carried my Glock 22 it didn't go over so well (naturally). I'm looking to buy a small, light gun in the near future...

    Why I Open Carry-- One Year Ago Today

    So, it's been a year ago today that I was jumped, stabbed, and mugged. Yes, all at once. If you want to read what happened, I believe I wrote a description of the incident in my very first post. If I can find it, I'll link it. This entry is basically for me to openly reflect on how it has...
