My fellow LuckyGunner Blogger Shoot alumnus Tom McHale of the My Gun Culture blog has just published his The Insanely Practical Guide to Gun Holsters. I just downloaded the Kindle version of it and it looks good. It is illustrated with his Half-Cocked cartoons as well as lots of really helpful information on a wide assortment of holsters.
To make things even better, Tom is making his 259-page book available for FREE on Amazon Kindle through March 14th. If you have a Kindle or Kindle software, you can get this very helpful book by clicking here. It is normally $9.99.
Tom’s press release about The Insanely Practical Guide to Gun Holsters is below and will give more information on the book.
Americans are flocking to buy guns like never before. The political
climate, a “foaming at the mouth” media and the desire to win the
neighborhood arms race are creating millions of first-time gun owners.
But how do folks learn about guns, holsters and concealed carry in an
amusing and approachable way?
Enter the team of My Gun Culture. They specialize in making sense of all that complicated shooting stuff with a large side helping of humor.
Their new book, The Insanely Practical Guide to Gun Holsters is now available on Amazon.com.
From Chapter 5: 10 Ways to Spot Someone Carrying a Concealed Gun
“If you see someone cruising around with a steady or intermittent
glow emanating from their pocket area, it means one of two things.
Either they have a really, really serious urinary tract infection, or
their holster is causing the pistol laser to activate.”
The Insanely Practical Guide to Gun Holsters
educates on a myriad of ways to safely carry a gun. Whether packing
heat on your belt or in your underwear, this book will teach new
shooters about the dizzying array of gun holsters on the market. In
addition to discussing numerous methods of carry in detail, The Insanely
practical Guide to Gun Holsters profiles over 120 specific holster
models. Dozens of photographs and Insanely Practical Tips help readers

Let’s face it. Holsters are a tough thing to buy — especially for
someone new to the world of guns. Stores rarely have a big selection,
everyone has a different opinion, and it’s hard to try them on with your
specific gun. Holsters are expensive, and most experienced shooters
have a whole box of unused, and very expensive, holsters. This book will
dramatically improve the odds of making the right buy the first time.
It’s also filled with helpful tips, like how to make sure your gun stays
From Chapter 8: A Word on Gun Belts
“Wearing your jeans with the waist band around your knees is in
vogue these days. While stylish and trendy, this doesn’t work so well
for concealed carry with waist holsters. It’s bad enough having your
wallet swinging around at knee level. Having a gun swinging around that
low would certainly make you the center of attention. Unless of course,
you live in Mogadishu.”
