Versa Carry Holster Review

ab-versa-carry-review

The handgun whether it be a pistol or a wheelgun is a classic tried and true defensive tool. From conceal carrying citizens to the street cop walking the beat, the handgun has had an important role in self defense for hundreds of years. There’s always a lot of debate over what handgun maker is the best, which caliber is the most effective, are steel frames better than plastic and so forth. While most of the arguements are just personal preference, what we can all agree on however, are the accessories we use with our handguns. Bad quality magazines and ammo can make even the most renowned pistol little more than a pretty paperweight. Likewise, an uncomfortable and restrictive holster can make carrying your handgun a burden.

During the past presidential elections back in 2008 the sales of guns and ammunition was through the roof, dubbing President Obama the “best gun salesman of the year”.

Well election time is coming up very soon, and one of the biggest firearm manufacturers is ramping up to take full advantage of the potential boost in sales the current political climate may cause.

0

The new M26 12-Gauge Modular Accessory Shotgun System, otherwise known as MASS, is an under-barrel shotgun attachment for the M16/M4/AR-15 series of rifles. It’s the same concept of the Masterkey, giving soldiers the ability to use their rifle as a shotgun for close quarters combat, breaching barriers or for non-leather use. The MASS improves upon the Masterkey however as it features a detachable magazine and can be used as a stand-alone shotgun when fitted with a detachable pistol grip and buttstock.

It’s remarkable how a simple yet effective piece of engineering can stand the test of time. The 1911 pistol designed by legendary gun designer John Moses Browning turned 100 years old this year, and it’s still going on strong. The 1911 is still used by police departments and militaries around the world, and is one of the most popular firearm designs in the civilian market. The newspaper clipping from the Pittsburgh Post Gazette dated April 13, 1911 that announced the Army’s adoption of the 1911 really puts  into perspective just how long the 1911 has been in service.

Zippo-Lighter-Gun

Here’s a cool way to carry a concealed gun for self defense, althought I doubt those little 6mm bullets will do much harm, might poke out an eye or two though. While this isn’t an official lighter from Zippo, it sure is cool. The gun is fired by rolling the flint wheel and the bullets fire out of a tiny barrel where the wick usually is, just don’t forget it’s a gun when you’re lighting up. The Zippo gun lighter pictured sold at auction back in 2006 for a whopping $6,810.

After the announcement of the Mossberg 500 Chainsaw a lot of zombie preppers immediatly added it to their list of must have zombie killing weapons. While it is a novel idea, it just looks unwieldy and impractical. Check out the video below of the Mossberg 500 Chainsaw in action. It’s hard to aim with, yes you should still aim with a shotgun, and I’d imagine it wouldn’t be optimal for fast follow-up shots. It’s does look cool though.
