All guns are always loaded, right? I mean, except for when they’re not.
Alternate title for this video was “bro, do you even press check?”
Want to buy some awesome training rounds so you can practice your press check and your eject-and-catch? Here are the rounds I use.
In today’s video, I don’t shoot anything, I don’t review any gear, I just…walk. But the point here is to address the people who’ve commented on my videos that “appendix carry isn’t comfortable for all day wear.” To which I say “bollocks” because if I can walk 7 miles in under 2 hours with a gun at the AIWB position and no undershirt, then it’s perfectly comfortable.
Stats: 1,150 rounds fired
1 armorer level fix
5 double-feeds that I’m not sure about counting yet

So I thought up this course of fire while shooting at Badlands Gun Range, and decided to name it the Badlands Challenge. The course is simple:
- 5 shots WHO, 5 yards, 10 sec par, low ready start
- 5 shots SHO, 10 yards, 10 sec par, concealed start
- 5 shots freestyle, 15 yards, 7 seconds, concealed start
- 5 shots freestyle 20 yards, 10 seconds, concealed start
- 5 shots freestyle 25 yards, 15 seconds, concealed start
This is one I’ve been looking forward to testing for a while, the Sig Sauer 1911 Fastback Nightmare in .357 Sig. Let’s get started with the first evaluation, the 10-8 Performance Function Test
Passed with flying colors, it would seem. In fact, of all the 1911s I’ve had through the test so far (this is the 7th that’s begun the tests) it has the most reliable and consistent ejection pattern yet. Maybe there’s something to be said for that external extractor…
I received an interesting comment the other day on my “Five tips for smart concealed carry” video. The commenter said “I’d like to see you drive a car with that rig” which I thought was odd, because I’ve done 8 hour road trips with that rig. But because I understand that this is the internet, and you must show people, I decided to do a fun little video about living with AIWB.
So I drove my car to get coffee and donuts.
I am exhausted of writing about terrorist attacks, but they keep happening. And they continue to be relevant to our local self-defense situations here in the states. The most attack in Turkey focused on something that we’ve known forever is a soft target: the unsecure area of airports.
“But Caleb” you’ll say, “we can’t carry into airports!” Yeah, I know. That’s a real tricky situation right there, although I’d also be the first to tell you that a 9mm isn’t going to be a whole lot of help against someone clacking off a vest with no warning. However, that’s not the point.
