Snub Training – Hammer Shroud Alternative

Posted · Add Comment

For years I have been advocating hammer shrouds for snub revolvers. Whether built into the frame like the S&W Bodyguard or attached to the snub like the Waller and Son shroud for Colt D-frame revolvers. But shrouds are not to everyone’s liking. Well earlier this week Rob Lyman of LEO Combat was kind enough to [...]

Snub Training – Weapon Disarming

Posted · Add Comment

A fellow officer contacted me this week regarding gun grab / officer assault statistics. I have started putting together an info pack including copies of gun grab incidents and copies of a few classics weapon retention/disarming handouts.

SnubTraining.com – BobMacs SSO holster

Like many other mass produced products handguns in general and snub revolvers in particular are designed to be all things to all possible owners.  No manufacture can know which individual gun he produces will be used by the buyer as a sportsmen’s kit gun, a target shooter’s range training tool, an armed citizen’s deep concealment [...]

Snub Training (2012) – A few notes

Posted · Add Comment

  I am currently revisiting on an old idea for turning the easily acquired Bianchi 3S inside-the-waist-band holster into a practical snub holster with the addition of only a dollar’s worth of Kydex. To paraphrase a line from my friends at JS …Holsters (http://www.jsholsters.com/) “It’s won’t be pretty but it will work.” On a slightly [...]
