FD EDC Series - Part 2

This week's EDC series is brought to you by our Head Manufacturing Manager, who prefers to keep his real name private and instead just go by "Shotgun Nut." Shotgun Nut - Head Manufacturing Manager Being a husband and a father of two there's more than just me to consider when I go for a stroll amongst the Sheep. That being said, I've had more than a day or two to evolve my EDC into tiers that are both light (enough), proven, affordable, and dependable. My core carry without pistol weighs in at a mere 1lb 8.9oz. My Tier 1 consists of: Pistol- This varies depending on season and mood. The only constant is that I carry one everyday, wrapped in...

FD EDC Series - Part 1

Welcome to part one of the Fierce Defender EDC (everyday carry) series. Over the course of the next several weeks we are going to go in depth on what a few of us here at Fierce Defender carry on a daily basis. While we are all passionate about being prepared and able to defend ourselves, we all lead unique lives and have different preferences on what we require to be prepared. Note, what we've listed we consistently carry on our immediate person every day (with some slight variation depending on unique circumstances). Something that sits in the car or around the house doesn't count, these things are actually on our person. So here we go! Jake - President I’m not...

Are You Always Ready?

You are out with friends and a drunk comes to pick a fight with you.  You are armed.  After he insults your wife and gives you a harsh shove, you nod your goodbyes to your friends and leave.  The guy laughs at your face and your friends smirk in slight disgust for your lack of manliness.  Who won?   The answer should be instantaneous to you: You did.   Let us be clear, here.  There are a lot of winning scenarios, and this by no means should stand as the “best one”.  And certainly, should this drunk follow you into the parking lot, draw a weapon, or otherwise decide that the fight is not over, you have not won yet. ...

Weak Hand Transition

Weak Hand Transition What is it?         Lets face it. Most of us spend 99% of our time, when shooting, doing so with our dominate hand.          I once read that most injuries sustained in a gun fight occur to the hands. They are up and out in front of you in the firing position and end up covering a large portion of your torso and face. With the bad guy shooting back it is only logical that a shot to the hand is a real possibility.         There are also other reasons you may need to shoot with your off hand, such as positioning, your other arm being pinned, etc....

Finding Your Dominant Eye

        Which is Your Dominant Eye?          How do you know which eye is your dominant eye? I'm right handed, so mine is my right eye, right? Not necessarily. That's what I assumed, until I tested it and found out I'm actually left eye dominant. I'd spent over 20 years of my life shooting with my weak eye!         Luckily, the test is super easy to perform. Hold your arms out in front of you and put your hands together, creating a tiny box, (about the size of a silver dollar) in between your hands. Now pick some object out in front of you and place it squarely within the box....
