Your Hump Day Reading List for August 22, 2018

Posted by:

In addition to this week’s great articles, I have an announcement!  


I’ve scheduled another revolver class!

I’ll be in Phoenix, AZ on December 1 & 2 teaching my Threat-Centered Revolver course at the beautiful Ben Avery Shooting Center. The weather in Phoenix that time of year is gorgeous, and I can’t think of a nicer place to be. Please plan to join me for two great days of revolver training!


Body lock? What’s a body lock?

I don’t know, but martial arts and self defense expert Cecil Burch does — and he’ll show you in this PDN video.


How to fix common AR-15 build problems

While aimed at buyers of AR-15s that were hurriedly assembled during the last legislative scare, these tips are actually more valuable than ever. With so many people building their own ARs, and so many parts of questionable quality, this information will help by showing solutions to common problems.


Everyone’s talking about…first aid?

Lots of people talking about the need for better first aid skills, but what does that mean? Here are a few things you need to know about “the new first aid”.


The lever action continues to evolve

Don’t believe me? Check out this new model from Henry Firearms.



As I said in Prepping For Life, most people don’t need to plan for a “bug-out” — they need to plan for a “bug-in”! This article explains why your house is likely to be the best place to stay.


About those new pistol-gripped shotguns-that-aren’t-shotguns…

They’re toys. Really. Chris Baker explains why.


Don’t make the burglar’s job any easier!

I’m amazed at how often people fail to lock their doors, whether to their house or car. That simple act  prevents a large number of crimes — and failing to do so facilitates them. Officer Greg Ellifritz has some numbers from his own town, and they might surprise you. Learn from the mistakes of others!
