There are those that do and those that do not, but guessing from the majority or comments The Shooter’s Log receives, I’d say most of us believe carrying a firearm means concealed. However, there are multiple ways to carry, both on your person and off body. In my vehicle, I have a holster between the seat and the console. I have also used a magnet or holster under the steering column. All of these methods carry advantages and disadvantages, but the reason I employed these solutions was a belief that I could not effectively draw my handgun from a waistband holster while seat belted.

Hunting takes more than its share of knocks, by people who do not understand the sport or the contribution hunters make to conservation.

The argument between which firearm is best for home defense is almost as old as the 9mm vs. .45 ACP debate. However, we are still debating it because neither camp has conceded. The primary argument against the shotgun is a longer length leading to less maneuverability. On the other hand, the pistol offers better maneuverability, but lacks the stopping power of a shotgun and you may be giving up some accuracy according to the critics.
