    I am pleased that a "Hunting" magazine is writing about concealed carry and self defense.

    There probably wasn't a round in the chamber either. Wouldn't want that gun to just "go off".

    Well everyone knows 1911s are good combat weapons but not good SD weapons.

    Seems to be a decent primer for a novice. Like the part where he recommended renting a gun & trying it out before buying.

    Eh, kinda naive and dated, but good to see in a trad outdoorsy mag - seems an indication CC is making it more mainstream.

    It's funny how they mention revolvers as good choices, but show semi's in the pictures.
