Gun Nuts Radio: Carry Gear

Last night’s Gun Nuts Radio was focused on the gear that we carry in addition to our firearm. The sponsored product, contrary to what I said on the air was not a SERPA holster for an XD, but rather a SERPA Holster for a 1911 style pistol. We actually had a lot of fun doing the show; the discussion of our gear and what we carry was excellent, as it lead to mentioning a lot of good companies and good products, and also lead to the central thesis of the show, which is that your carry gear works as a system. Everything, from your holster to your belt to you knife has a distinct role to play, and in a self defense situation you need them all to do their job.

Speaking of knives, last night’s show featured Jared West of Mantis Knives out of the old homestead in California. Jared and I had talked a bit at SHOT SHOW, and I was impressed with the direction that he’s taking his company, and wanted to have him on the show. Mantis makes a quality product at an affordable price; so check them out if you’re in the market for a new sharp thing. Mantis is also a very “net” and new media friendly company – they’re getting set to open up a forum on their website, and you can also subscribe to get email updates on new products and gear.

Like I said, doing the show last night was fun. I love talking gear with people, whether it’s holsters, knives, flashlights, or Breda wearing a Lara Croft outfit (note: this actually was the topic for about 10 minutes). If you don’t listen live, you can still catch us – just click to hear what you missed!


  1. While I am quite happy I was able to catch Mr. West’s section of the show, I did some research about him and his knives, and found some rather interesting things. Not sure if I will get one in the future, but they still look amazing as hell :).
