Concealed Carry Holster

Doug Childers of New Braunfels, Texas, runs Bear Creek Holsters, a one-man workshop finely crafting custom holsters that are gaining some attention. In addition to cowhide, he offers holsters made of horsehide, which is denser, smoother and more moisture resistant than cowhide. Color choices are black, brown or natural leather, which has a marbled light brown appearance. Holsters are hand tooled and stitched without rivets. Childers also offers accents and exotic materials such as alligator, shark, elephant, ostrich or stingray. Delivery times can vary based on demand. Check Bear Creek Holsters’ website for current delivery times. (Prices vary, bearcreekholsters.com)

Does Your Bug-out Bag Have a CCW Inside?

For me, the bug-out kit requires some sort of firearm or spare ammo. When things are very bad, people might want to fight. They might want to take what is yours. The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.
