Sick World: Good Samaritan Shot during snow storm

Good Samaritan shot
What is there to say about this story but is it worth it to stop and help anyone.  At this point I’ll probably just call for emergency assistance unless I am armed.  It is a sad testament of the type of humanity out there that a driver in trouble would choose to kill someone that stopped to help them.

Advice:  Be circumspect when you see a situation where someone is not in immediate danger or undergoing trauma.  Many times I have not stopped for people in a disabled car simply because I didn’t want them to fear that I was a threat, so instead I would call in their location and apparent situation after passing them and seeing that they were okay.

Concealed Carry Issues

Getting the right holster is the answer for concealed carry or even open carry. I’ve found the old tried and true leather holsters are still the best. Anyone that has owned and carried handguns for a long period of time has a collection.

1. Buy one fitted for the gun you intend to carry.

2. Stay away from nylon

3. No fancy mechanisms. I had trouble with one that requires tilting the weapon a certain way to extract it. Something like that is lousy under pressure. Release buttons jam too.

4. Pay top dollar and get the best you can afford and only buy once. If you buy cheap ones you’ll have to replace them anyway and end up spending the same.

This one is one of the best articles I’ve read on holsters.
