I was gifted a Fairbairn Sykes inspired Bawidamann Tommy Spike for Christmas, so I started thinking about what the perfect carry pairing for it would be. The Bawidamann Doughboy DB-2 knucks was a no brainer, as was my sap that I picked up off of one of the guys in the Blackjack and Sap group I'm in. (Isn't everyone in one of those groups?) This whole set up was getting a … [Read more...] about New Year Carry: A Remington Rand 1911 With a Bawidamann Tommy Spike
I like my Glock 43X -- a lot -- but occasionally I regret getting rid of its slimmer, younger brother; the single stack G43. So I decided to build my own Mock 43.

He also made the … [Read more...] about Our Forefathers’ Everyday Carry
There are some days when 9mm just isn't enough. This isn't an IWB pistol, but it'll fit into your courier bag or under your field jacket just fine. It's a home brew 5.56 AR pistol with a Noveske flash can. If you don't hit them, the flame shooting out the muzzle ought to singe them or at least scare them off... I match it up with some RMJ Snuckles and a Spartan Harsey … [Read more...] about Who Says an EDC Pistol Has to Be Carried in a Holster?
