Pardon me while we are getting set up

Posted July 8th, 2011 in Site Updates

Welcome to Conceal and Carry  This site is brand new (December 2011) and we are still working very hard to assemble our content and get all of our technology wired up.

We expect that for many of you this will be your first stop in considering whether a conceal and carry permit is right for you.  In the coming weeks we will be providing the information you need to understand the law in your state, the requirements of qualifying for a permit, obtaining information about quality handgun training in your area, and contact information in your area for submitting your application.

And shortly there after we will also be adding content from law enforcement, government official, safety instructors and others about the proper procedures regarding conceal and carry, handgun training, and the legal nuances of having a concealed carry permit.

We believe that as American citizens we have the right to legally defend ourselves and those around us from lethal threat.  However, possessing a conceal and carry permit is a serious responsibility and one that should not be taken lightly.  It is important to know the facts so you don’t find yourself running a-foul of the law.

        This is a matter of psnoerel choice and is a hot debate topic. 9mm- Great penetration due to high velocity but controllable recoil. .357 Sig- 9mm in a .40 casing more recoil but more power. .40- Larger projectile but more powder makes it great for stopping power but the recoil is a bit larger. .45- large projectile and large casing make it a slower round so the penetration is not as good but the stopping power is greater. Pick what you want its all a matter of psnoerel preference.

    Thanks, most of the information came through a number of research links, and the state legislations. I need to get busy and write the individual requirements for each state. I will begin posting them soon.

      I agree with boodou6 , eiehtr a .40 or .45. They come in larger patrol size frames and smaller concealed frame clip. For instance, Glock 21 is a .45 ACP @ 13 round with a longer slide; used in on’duty/patrol applications. Glock 30 is also a .45 ACP but with 10 rounds and shorter slide used in undercover/off-duty applications. .357 is good but distance (but not too far) is a good thing. For direct CQB (close quaters battle, aka in your face ), you want a .40 or .45. You will find there are ways to hide the smaller framed, high-caliber pistols by making just a few minor adjustments to your clothing.

    Thanks. I have to admit I am not a great typist, and I have revised these so many times that I am not surprised there are spelling issues and typeos. I am going to have a professional proof reader go through all of my static content when I have it posted.

    I appreciate your feedback though.

  4. In Texas, running a gun is really a supply of pride for most people. This right, many Texans will explain, was fully guaranteed by our forefathers in the 2nd Amendment of america Constitution: "A well regulated Militia, being essential to the security of a totally free State, the best of the folks to help keep and bear Arms, shall maybe not be infringed. " Many people see this among the most significant rights to be established by the founding fathers, since it allows the folks to theoretically occupy arms against an unjust government, protecting themselves from tyranny, similar to the patriots did throughout the Revolutionary War.

    However for all but several on the radical fringe, the idea of a radical overthrow of america government is all but an abstract notion depicted in apocalyptic films. Their interests in gun ownership have significantly more related to protecting oneself, and, obviously, one’s family. It is more of a matter of problems like personal safety and security alarm. But before you begin sleeping with that pistol under your pillow, you need to stop for one minute to think about whether gun ownership certainly makes people safer in Texas and in the united states.

    To begin with, if you wish to have a gun within your house, you need to keep it separated from the bullets, with both items locked so they can’t be accessed casually. When you have a young child in your home, the final thing you’d ever wish to happen is always to get his / her little on the job that gun, and make a move quick and fatal accidentally or through insufficient knowledge of the ability of a weapon. This is actually the major reason that you may wish to keep carefully the bullets locked and separated. But, in the theoretical scenario of a house invasion, or every other situation by which your house security will be threatened, having this sort of setup would render the gun probably useless. The one thing that would be said for this is that should you kept the gun in the bed room with no bullets, it may be used as a threat to the robber or trespasser. However, you might have no capacity to actually right back that threat up.

    Yet another factor to think about is whether you actually understand how to make use of the gun, and whether you can keep your cool within an emergency situation. Many people are skilled experts, but most gun owners have only visited a shooting range several times. It really is quite common in situations like these for the victims of the robbery to possess their guns switched on them. They get distracted, create a false move, or some type of struggle ensues, and the criminal has the capacity to grab your hands on the weapon.

    For this reason, for many, people, it creates more sense to adhere to measures like installing a house home security system to bolster your house security. In most however the rarest of cases, that needs to be enough to make certain that your family are safe.

    The most important thing is to find one that fits you, you have to be cbalortmofe shooting it. I carry a Springfield XDm40. It fires a .40 S W round and has great stopping power. I think its the best between both worlds of the 9mm, which has the best penetration and the .45 ACP, that packs the most punch from your average automatic pistols. If you’re planning to get a CCW for concealed carry don’t get something too big, think about hiding it too. Carrying a little kel-tech .380 is much, much better than having a smith wesson .44 magnum left at home!!!!
