Double-Barreled 1911 is here and it’s awesome

Loving guns as much as I do is both a blessing and a curse.

It’s a blessing because it motivates me to communicate my passions with others who are either uneducated or just as interested as I am in the topic. It’s also a blessing because it makes trying out new guns even more exciting. The curse part, and I am sure many of you would agree, is that sometimes it isn’t easy to make an argument in favor of purchasing said gun with anything other than “because it is freaking cool!” I ran into this tonight and decided I would share with my fellow gun lovers.

While doing my daily scrolling through different social platforms, I came across a teaser video introducing a double barrel 1911 and my jaw just dropped. I automatically glanced at my husband with a big cheesy smile on my face and said “can I buy one?” Being the economist and budget-conscious being that he is, his first question was, of course, “how much is it?” There is the problem. The MSRP on this fabulous creation is $4,400. Pretty steep for a gun that really has no other purpose than the fact that it is just really cool. I mean, it’s not like it would be practical for me to holster this bad boy on my thigh or my hip and try to get away with a “it could be a concealed carry gun” argument.

Tomorrow is apparently the day that the full review will post to YouTube and I will share it with you as well. Go ahead. Watch the teaser and tell me you don’t want to get your hands on this.

Hornady designs a gun safe that is both sturdy and affordable

Hornady designs a sturdy, yet affordable, gun safe option that is ideal for concealed carry holders. Watch this open box review!

One of the biggest priorities when owning a handgun is making sure that it is properly secured at all times. When your weapon is neither holstered nor needed, the best place for it is in a gun safe that is easily accessible.

New gun safes with fancy finger print keypads, internal alarms, and GPS tracking are really great products, but are not always the practical option in terms of price. Hornady has designed the TriPoint Gun Safe that is both sturdy and affordable.

Legally Armed Uber Driver Stops Mass Shooting in Logan Square

An attempted mass shooting ended with no innocent bystanders injured all thanks to a law-abiding Uber driver with a gun, in Chicago of all places!

An armed man began shooting into a crowd of people at Logan Square in Chicago late Friday night. After witnessing everything from his vehicle, an Uber driver with a concealed carry permit immediately responded to what could have been a horrible incident by pulling his own weapon and firing six shots at the gunman.

The gunman was later identified as 22-year-old Everardo Custodio, who is currently being treated for gunshot wounds to the thigh, shin, and lower back at Advocate Illinois Masonic hospital.

According to the Chicago Tribune, the Uber driver was in a parked car nearby when he witnessed Custodio shooting into a crowd of pedestrians at the 2900 block of North Milwaukee Avenue. The driver, who has only been identified as a 47-year-old male from Little Italy, fired six shots at the gunman and remained at the scene until police arrived. He immediately presented his valid concealed carry permit and firearms owner’s identification card.
