I am licensed to conceal carry in most of the states, and I often am looking for a new bag to carry in. Kakadu has a complete line of Gunn Worn Clothing as well as bags for men and women. The Utility Bag is a great choice for “a-bout-town carry-all.“¹

This washed canvas bag has cowhide leather trim and brass zippers. The lining and webbing are both 100% cotton. The generous sized bag measures 12 1/2″ wide, 13 1/2″ high and 4 1/2″ deep. The interior has the large main compartment with a small zipper pocket, perfect for your change or wallet. There are four exterior pockets that latch with either buckles or snaps. The biggest feature is located on the back side, and accessible with a rapid entry pocket, is the concealed carry pocket. There is a removable snap-in holster that holds your weapon and two clips. The pocket can be quickly opened by grasping the leather strap that snaps in place; as you pull this down, the side has velcro, and you can easily access your weapon as needed. The bag has both reinforced handles and an adjustable shoulder strap, perfect for cross the body positioning of the bag. Black, Sage, and Bone are the available colors for this bag. Like all of the Kakadu products, these bags are made to take the abuse and look great!

This bag is perfect for daily use as well as travel. There is ample storage for all of my necessities. The fact that my 1911 fits in the snap-in holster easily and there is room for my two spare clips, makes this the perfect multi-purpose concealed carry bag for me. My iPad, phone, wallet, and all my other needs fit great in the main compartment, I don’t need to go looking for them. Plus, I like the rugged look that these bags carry off with charm. I have the Utility Bag in Bone, but I will be looking to add the Sage one soon!

Everyone is looking for the perfect concealed carry weapon these days.  Me included!  I had been carrying a semi-automatic pistol with laser sight, it should have been a good firearm for me, but it wasn’t.  I hated shooting it, and I would have been hard pressed to hit anything with it, let alone a person.  But last Fall I found the perfect carry weapon for me.  A friend of ours was visiting, and as always, talk turned to guns.  It turned out he had the same semi-auto as me, and he thought as little of it as I did.  He showed me what he had found; a North American Arms 22 Magnum Mini Revolver with a Holster Grip.  He let me try it out, and it was LOVE at first shot!  I went through an entire box of 22 mag shells, and was hitting the target right from the start.  By the time I was done, I knew I had to have this revolver.

shooting reviews 268I started to look around to buy one, and found out that they were flying off the shelves.  I was disappointed, but undeterred.  I would own one!  It took a while, but I finally was able to purchase mine.  I took it home, and just started shooting it.  It is a fun gun to shoot, but it will also get the job done if needed for protection.  Anyone who came over to visit would get my unadulterated gushing of how much I love this revolver, and of course we would go out to shoot it often.  It did not take long, before 9 of our family and friends are now carrying a mini revolver from North American Arms.

I was recently at a Sportsman’s Expo, and talking to one of the vendors.  We got talking about CCW, and of course I shared my opinion.  He surprised me by pulling the exact revolver I was talking about, out of his pocket.  It is his carry choice also!  Just for the record, he does not sell guns, he is just is as impressed by them as I am.

shooting reviews 202There are many different models to choose from, but the favorite models for me are my original 22 Mag 1 5/8″ Barrel with Holster Grip, and my newest 22 Magnum 1 1/8″ Barrel with Conversion Cylinder.   This one comes with a 22 long rifle conversion cylinder, which makes it very economical to shoot for fun.  I tricked this one out with Simulated Pearl Grip in Burgundy, which looks purple to me, and makes this a very attractive gun to own.  My husband says it is now a women’s gun, and he is right!  There is no reason it can’t look good while it protects.  Both of these have a 5 shot cylinders.

All of the North American Arms Mini-Revolvers have a half way notch cylinder that lets the hammer rest securely without fear of being accidentally discharged.

They have an ankle holster that Velcro’s into place, and is surprisingly comfortable.  I have tried other ankle holsters, and they usually bite into your ankle, or chaff your skin.  Worn under blue jeans, this would be completely concealed.

The Holster Grip model has a clip molded right onto the grip, makes it easy to wear clipped to your waistband, belt or even into your western boots.  When closed the Holster Grip covers the trigger completely, so it cannot be shot at all until quickly opened.

shooting reviews 247I also have the .380 ACP with ILS (Integral Locking System) Guardian, although my daughter ends up with this one more often than I do.  It fits her well, and she is extremely accurate with it.  The Guardian 380 ACP model is a very popular concealed carry weapon. It boasts stopping power packed into a small package that fits easily in your purse or pocket.  NAA also carries an Inside the Pant, English Bridle leather holster made just for it.
