Today I’m taking you guys on a rare look at my EDC, the stuff I carry with me every day of my life at all times.
I took the Henry Big Boy .45 Colt to the range the other day to test it out, and unsurprisingly it was an absolute blast to shoot. However, there was one little problem.
Dan Wesson revolvers occupy an interesting place in the world of enthusiasts. The company itself was founded by the great grandson of the original Daniel Wesson, and Dan Wesson II’s roundguns eventually gained a respectable cult following in revolver circles. Their party trick was an interchangeable barrel system, which allowed the end user to swap barrel lengths at their leisure, making a 6-inch silhouette gun into a 4-inch duty gun or a 2-inch carry gun with relative ease.
I’m not saying that I’m prepping to survive an 1800s zombie apocalypse, but the thought did occur to me. In the photo: Henry Big Boy .45 Colt, Ruger Blackhawk .45 Colt, Ka-Bar, Hornady 255gr LRN, and Winchester 225gr PDX. Click more for a couple more photos.

Do you carry a gun regularly? If so, there’s a good chance that you’re probably doing at least one of these things that you shouldn’t be doing. Here are five reasons you’re carrying your gun incorrectly, and how to fix them.
Look at these two belts. The one in the middle that’s all nicely rolled up is from Fossil. It’s not a gun belt. It’s not reinforced, and under the weight of any gun larger than a NAA Black Widow it sags. It’s a perfectly fine belt…if you’re not carrying a gun. If you are carrying a gun, it’s a piece of s***. The other belt, the one that’s around it? That’s a gun belt. It’s a leather belt that’s been reinforced with an inner layer of kydex so that it doesn’t deform and doesn’t sag. I can’t roll it up, because it’s too rigid. It is a great gun belt, and also looks quite nice. Get a good belt.
This week Tom Givens, one of the most admired firearms trainers in the business, highlighted a video of a self defense shooting over at Pistol-Forum.com that teaches a lot of key lessons about successful self defense. How many times have you…
Last week, I took the Ruger Blackhawk in .45 Colt to the range for accuracy testing. I worked with three different loads, Hornady 185 grain Critical Defense, Winchester 225 grain PDX, and Fiocchi 250 grain LRN cowboy ammo. The above group is from the Winchester PDX, and it shot into a hair over 2 inches at 50 feet from a standing freestyle position.
Content warning. I started drinking earlier, and I said the F-word a lot. Also, I totally had it in my head that the new Wilson Beretta was 3,000 bucks, it’s not and I’m stupid and dumb.
P.S. The internet is awful. Except for you guys, you guys are all princes of men.
Shoot deer with revolver. Gut deer with knife. Of course, there’s the matter of waiting until deer season, but whatever.
Enjoy your day off. We’re going to do the same, and keep the work light today. If you want to see some content, follow us on Facebook or Instagram. Like this:Like Loading…
The phrase “handle with kid gloves” comes from the type of leather used, traditionally goatskin, specifically from a young goat or “kid.” Kidskin was valued for gloves because it was strong and resilient without being rough. In this photo are actual kid gloves designed for rope work, along with a Ruger Blackhawk in .45 Colt and a Galco holster. I’ve had my kid gloves for years, and they’ve developed that perfect, hard-use look, because that’s exactly what I’ve used them for. My goal with the Blackhawk is much the same – wear that nice blue in by carrying it, shooting it, and having it live a real six-gun’s life.
