THE CONCEALED CARRY OPTION - IT'S COMMON SENSE
With the recent events overpowering the news, and the slight chance laws might be effected, small concealables and carry weapons seem to be the ticket so far this season with sales and permits are at an all time high. Many manufacturers have come out with unique firearms using new materials in popular calibers.
Look at Ruger Promotions which are all over the magazines and the standby of the business, the Kel-Tec line of defensive firearms is going gangbusters.
Taurus Smith and Wesson have their versions and styles of these smaller weapons and some with unique qualities. Almost including compacts and sub-compact fifty models in various finishes are available.
Beretta has always made small guns and yes some were ugly BUT they worked and once they went through Accurate's makeover shop, they took on a totally new appearance. Thats a pretty Tomcat.
A concealed permit, a Beretta Tomcat, P3-AT Kel-Tec or an LCP as shown below, might be your only defense in a confrontation. The four or five minutes response from a law enforcement agency might be too long. Politics has not changed over the years about this subject so while you can do it, you should get the permits, training and a suitable carry weapon and learn how to use it . Reinforce that with practice and a clear cut understanding of the LAW especially the words "STAND YOUR GROUND" which is to be soon challenged in the Florida Courts.
Though the assault weapon sales are at an all time high, its pretty hard to conceal an AR-15 in you pants or under your jacket while out of your domain. And I doubt if you need that firepower for the casual trip to McDonalds or Wendy's.
The Russians are not coming this week, there is no eastern BLOC to speak of and if thoughts go through you mind about taking on the government, like some political idiots in Washington suggested this week by violence, please seek mental health help, you need it. Vote the crooks and those who propose stupid ideas, out. Some of you voted them in.
Another thought is some of the home defense weapons are really offensive weapons. You are unlikely to keep an AR-15 loaded and ready to "rock and roll" (I have seen demos where the AR was almost as fast as the M-16 for intensive and defensive purposes) by your bedside.
And do you want high speed .223's flying through your house in a panic defense posture. Remember it was the unstableness of the .223 round when it hits something like flesh that does the damage. I would rather have two carry guns with two trained adults and range time properly taken and the weapons within reach and properly secured. Most wives (this is not a dig at wives) don't consider time at the range sighting in your AR as quality family time.
My first choice before you start swinging that AR around your house would be my most used weapon (familiarity) decent capacity (5-8 rounds) convenience (small and compact) and not requiring two hands. Just common sense.
Boston proved its not a frontal assault that does the harm. We weren't challenged by AK's, M-16's, or AR's. We were challenged by cowards. Soon we will have some idiot in Washington wanting to ban Pressure Cookers. Unfortunately most of the rhetoric over these issues of gun control are so convoluted and distorted, the real truths never surface. This hurts our cause, lies don't help things and both sides of the story need to be addressed.
VERY POPULAR CARRY GUNS
The P3-AT is no larger than my CQ7 type blade, see photo and has RMTAC - Rapid Multiple Target Acquisition Capabilities (6 rounds), and a knife doesn't. Both are useless if not with you. Bob and I both carry one.
Through our ties with the Kel-Tec factory over the years, doing most of their finishing and plating, we have developed finite enhancements, for the Kel-Tecs. We plate the slide and barrel. Not just a nickel dip, or silver paint, we plate with Enduro Chrome, our industrial strength plating ( also called tool chrome) after careful preparation of the slide.
Same way we do a Desert Eagle. Though nickel is great for corrosion proofing, it is soft. Thats why larger, heavy use, carry weapons rarely are nickeled anymore. More for show pieces.
These small carry firearms are usually carried somewhere closer to skin and sweat and the Chrome does a much better job of both friction reduction, and pitting prevention. We have done thousands of these for Kel-Tec and they are part of our upgrade programs treated as such just like the 1911s and shotguns we do.
But wait there's more! The second step is our porting process. We only need the top assembly, the slide, springs, guide rod, take down pin and barrel.
Read the owners manual, check the weapon, make sure it is unloaded, pull the takedown pin, and send us the top and the pin. It all fits neat into a USPS $4.90 small flat rate box.
We can port the firearm when it is here, do sight work on the older version .380 (1st generation) and polish the feed ramp. Owners of ported 9mm. and .40 cal Kel-Tecs reported they had better 2nd shot acquisition (muzzle rise) and a reduction in felt recoil, and retained all the feeling in their hands after being at the range. Call for pricing.
Ruger LCP owners, we are also working on the Ruger LCP and the other small self-defense pistols available on the market today.
Almost every day you read of someone who "might of been able to defend themselves" had they some form of protection.
This group of firearms are light, concealable and with the right tune and ammunition assert themselves well when you are in danger.
