Dry Practice Report #15: August 1 – 15 – Low Light Work

My first post of this year briefly discussed my goal of doing 3,650 minutes of dry practice in 2019. These posts are mostly for my own accountability. I am releasing this as a normal Saturday post because I learned a lot during this two-week period. If you aren’t interested in my performance this year skip past my log and read the notes.

The Kramer Belt Scabbard & The Colt King Cobra

When conducting my field test of the Colt King Cobra, I neglected to carry this revolver for want of a holster. This is a pretty common problem with firearms that are new to the market. Leather workers and Kydex benders need a little time to catch up to new designs. Though Kramer Gunleather didn’t list a model for the King Cobra, I reach ed out to them anyhow. I lucked out, and they offered to send us a Kramer Belt Scabbard. Continue reading “The Kramer Belt Scabbard & The Colt King Cobra”

Galco Combat Master Scabbard

I have been carrying appendix for about three years now and you can put me down firmly in the “appendix guy” category. It’s OK if you’re not – I’m just letting you know where I stand. As much as I like it, though, carrying appendix isn’t always possible. Appendix can get quite uncomfortable if you have to hold a certain position for long periods of time, and some types of dress and activity don’t support the method.

Throwing ‘Hawks from Beaver Bill Forging Works

When my girlfriend and I moved into our new house, we wanted to have a fun yard game or two. Cornhole boards are cheap – and cheaper to make – but not quite our style. We’re both pretty good at horseshoes but don’t really have the right space for it, close enough to the house. When I floated the idea of throwing tomahawks I was met with an enthusiastic, “yes!” The next morning I ordered a couple standard throwing hawks from Beaver Bill Forging Works.

I.C.O.R.E. – A Revolver Guy/Gal’s Paradise?

When I first heard about the International Confederation of Revolver Enthusiasts (I.C.O.R.E.), I thought ‘Wow, an international competition format just for wheel guns? It’s a revolver lover’s paradise!’ Well, I was mostly right. Allow me to explain… Continue reading “I.C.O.R.E. – A Revolver Guy/Gal’s Paradise?”

Kenai Chest Holster from Gunfighters, Inc.

Smith & Wesson recently sent us a model 610† for review. As soon as that T&E was in the works I realized I didn’t have a suitable holster for the big N-Frame. I wanted to carry the gun, at least a little, in a platform that suited its ideal purpose: hunting or defense in the great outdoors. Someone pointed me in the direction of the Kenai Chest Holster, and I’m glad they did. Continue reading “Kenai Chest Holster from Gunfighters, Inc.”
