Has the Sheriff’s CCW Policy Really Changed? – You Decide

For as far back as most people can remember, San Diego County has effectively had a “no issue” policy regarding concealed carry permits (CCW) for law-abiding citizens. Up until the end of 2017 there were approximately 1500 CCW permits in the county. To put things in perspective, there are almost 17 million CCW permit holders […]

No, They Aren’t Actually Offended

Recently we got to witness international public outrage over a picture of Britain’s Prince George playing with a squirt gun.  I had to read the story a few times to figure out what the actual issue was, but finally saw that people were “offended” by pictures of the young prince playing with a toy squirt […]

As we begin to regain our right to self-protection in San Diego County, the subject of proper mindset for a CCW holder is worth examining. A recent post in Facebook addressed a shooting incident at a Southern California mall. The incident was a case of domestic violence that unfortunately played out in public and resulted […]

5th Annual Charity Shooting Course

I recently had the good fortune to attend the 5th Annual Sheila Hamed Charity Handgun/Rifle Course organized by Lance Reeter and Tatiana Melo. You may recognize Lance and Tatiana from the Shooter’s Hangout. The event is named in honor of Sheila Hamed who lost her life to leukemia in 2013 at the age of 35. Two […]

To Protect and Serve

As the nation continues to recover from the latest horrible mass shooting incident in Florida, the gun control debate is predictably once again front and center.
