Discussion of carry guns, open or concealed. Lots of opinions on what is best but it all comes down to personal preferences. What's right for one may not be very good for another. Tell us what works, and doesn't work, for you.

Discussions related to holsters, including IWB, OWB, shoulder holsters, pocket holsters, off body and vehicle carry methods. Women often have unique requirements.

What's in your pockets? Most people that carry, either concealed or openly, also carry a lot of other related stuff in their pockets. Sound off and let us know what works for you.

Without the 2nd Amendment we would probably all be without guns by now. A forum for discussions on the right to keep and bear arms, threats to that liberty, along with crime trends, legislative and legal changes that might impact the RKBA.

While most here would prefer to always be armed, there are circumstances that that is difficult. Whether we carry OC or mace, a knife or striking instrument, or rely on martial arts and other hand to hand skills we can discuss it here.

All topics related to self-defense in the home, away from home, while traveling, along with defense-related news items in these areas. Whether successfully defended or not. So long as related to the defensive focus of PersonalDefenseForum. Should not be treated as a general dumping ground for any old news story. Such news stories unrelated to the focus of PDF will be closed.

The AR-15 rifle is the most popular rifles today. Along with other "military style" rifles they are also the most misunderstood rifle in history. If you need one or just want one (or more) this forum is specifically tailored for those discussions.
Yesterday, 07:51 PM
Rifles other than the AR-15 are worthy and important to add to add to any collection. Those of us who have bolt action, lever or semi-automatic or even muzzleloaded rifles in our collection can discuss that here.

There's always room for a shotgun for home defense within our toolkit. Whether you have a hunting shotgun, a tactical shotgun or an old coachgun just having one gives you a lot of firepower.

Scopes, holographic sites, reflex, red dots, open sites, night sites and lasers are all options we have for each of our guns. Tell us what works and what doesn't.

One way to beat the high price and periodic limited supplies of ammunition is to reload. There's a lot of equipment and supplies available with more and more people loading their own.

While all of us carry for defensive purposes and many of us for hunting as well, there are more opportunities today for competition with other shooters. And, many of us like to simply go to the woods or to the range and test ourselves because shooting is good family fun.
Today, 07:01 PM
Traditional longbows, recurves, compound bows, crossbows and others. All topics related to the skills necessary for self defense, hunting, recreational and competitive archery.

Many people go camping for the sheer enjoyment of it. Others just like to have the skills necessary should they find themselves needing to rely on their skills at some point. Tell us how you train, where you go and your experiences.
Today, 04:18 PM
There are so many training venues available today there is very little excuse to not get proper firearms training. Whether it's training related to obtaining a concealed carry permit, basic operation and handling of firearms or sophisticated tactical training we all need to train.
Today, 04:09 PM
All things printed regarding firearms, handling and operation, maintenance or carrying & tactics. You're also welcome to discuss relevant fiction. If you have your own that you want to share here, that's welcome, as well.

Tactical scenarios, whether set up and run at home or simply thought out are an excellent way to stay on top of your game. Share what you do personally or set one up and see what others would do all gives you things to think about in resolving a tactical problem.
