Article on Lucky Gunner and other RG Reading

You might’ve noticed I’ve been a bit absent from the blog lately. That will change, but several things are going on. My day-job is keeping me very, very busy lately and I’m working on some bigger Revolver Guy projects that are taking longer to finish than most. To give you guys something to look at (and assure you guys Mike and I haven’t abandoned for some sleek, head-turning, young self-loader) here are a couple links to some reading material:

Gunfight in Garland

Police One – In this excellent article at Police One Mike Wood talks through the experience of Police Officer Greg Stevens. Stevens took on two well-armed, would-be terrorists with a Glock 21 and a take-the-fight-to-them mentality, and prevailed.  Everyone interested in self-defense in the day-and-age of the active shooter should read this article.

Speed Strips

Lucky Gunner Lounge – I haven’t spent a whole lot of time talking about Speed Strips here on RevolverGuy. However, last week my article about Speed Strip employment went live on Lucky Gunner. I talk about setting them up, reloading with them, and my preferred makes and models (and yes, there is a difference).

Security in Airports

Armed Citizen’s Network – In another fantastic article written by Mike Wood you can learn how to be safe(er) at the airport. Mike analyzes the terrain in an airport by breaking down the different zones of security and sterility, and gives you actionable advice. You don’t have to travel as much as I do to realize how important this knowledge is.

Thanks for hanging in there, guys! I’ll be back with more content very soon!

  1. Great work on the Speed Strip article! My experience with Tuff Strips mirrors yours–they are prone to cracking or having the tab break off faster than the Bianchi/Safariland product. They are inexpensive enough that it’s not too much of a burden, but I prefer the tougher Bianchi product?

    As you mentioned, the Tuff Strips do offer some caliber and capacity options that the Bianchi/Safariland products don’t. However, with Bianchi making .38/.357 and .44/.45 strips, it seems like the most common bases are covered. To their everlasting credit, they don’t make a strip for .410 cartridges. ; ^ )

    On the plus side, the 5-shot Tuff Strips for .38/.357 fit very nicely in the coin pocket of most jeans.
