The right holster is as important as the right gun

How much time do we spend researching a firearm that we want? Does endless sound about right? We read magazine articles. We read online and print reviews and comparison tests. We go on countless gun forums where "experts" will praise or revile the same weapon countless times. We talk to friends and strangers about their experiences with the gun. 

The Key is Always Preparation

With their specific Medical Components and their complete Medical Kits, DNA Tactical has the tools that you need to make sure that you come home safely from every environment and every encounter in your life. You will know that you have what you need on your belt, in your bag, or in your car to preserve both your life and the lives of those around you.


So you have committed to adopting a firearm, purchased your first gun for "Self-Defense", now what? Have you taken everything into consideration? Do you have the education, understanding, background, and respect to use your firearm; especially pertaining to a Self-Defense scenario? Are you familiar with all the influences that entail Firearm Safety? Did you take the time to familiarize yourself with all the variant aspects of ammunition and how they are traditionally utilized?

Training vs. Practice

It is actually surprising how often the difference between "training" and "practice" is discussed, argued and more often than not, compared to one another in theory. The truth is, these two fundamentals are not remotely similar, the basics are different and both require diverse approaches to truly master the craft! 


Sometimes, and more often than not, it just really seems that the favorite pastime of mankind is strife. If one were to turn on any source of main-stream news right now, they would be inundated with images and news of dastardly events going on throughout the world. 


When planning to purchase a holster for your firearm, it is vitally important to purchase a holster which properly fits the required revolver or pistol, and will safely and securely retain the weapon during the type of activities envisioned while wearing it. Often times, people will shop for exactly that and essentially overlook a very key element…COMFORT. If comfort isn't taken into account, the wearer will be desiring a whole new holster within just a few weeks or even days. Buyer beware! Ignoring this element will lead to severe frustration (i.e. ‑ Holster Rage) and is entirely preventable from the beginning.


You just picked up a brand new Glock 17, and of course without hesitation, want to test out your new "Purchase", immediately heading to the shooting range where you meet up with a good friend of yours, who brings his Colt 1911. After a few shooting warm-up drills, you each decide to try out the other's firearm. The very first thing you notice is how different they feel from the other in your hand, due to the differences in grip angle. 

Be willing to do SOMETHING!

The other night, I was driving to a popular BBQ restaurant near the house, as I needed to pick up some food for the family. As I neared an intersection that led to the highway, I saw traffic building up and figured it would be quicker to take a side street. I turned right onto an unfamiliar road and about two (2) blocks down, I noticed a man lying on the sidewalk by a vacant store front. He didn't appear like a person that was just down on their luck, intoxicated, or homeless. Instead, he immediately reminded me of "Battlefield" casualties I had seen while on my previous deployments.


Many Anthropologists agree that three (3) of the most important and influential events in human history were, tool making, the invention of the wheel, and finally, the taming of fire. Of these, fire allowed our forbearers to illuminate the night, kept predators away, provided heat for comfort, and allowed them to cook food. It could be easily argued that fire is one of the cornerstones of civilization, culminating through thousands of generations in the ability to forge tools and by blending various metals, in creating stronger alloys. Fire (though seemingly archaic), is a vital part of modern life, whether applied to industrial plant(s), the boilers or incinerators in large buildings, or even the gas burning stoves in restaurants and homes, all require a flame.

Understanding Ammunition & Common Terms

Ammunition can seem overly complicated to the novice or even the semi-experienced shooter. There are a few terms and concepts that people should probably be familiar with before selecting or committing to ammunition. There are literally complete encyclopedia sets written on this topic, but for the sake of limited time and an ability to fit within a few pages, the DNA Tactical Team will attempt to break things down into simplified and manageable segments in order to classify different forms of ammunition and their optimized use.

Defining Different Muzzle Devices

One of the most common modifications and enhancements to firearms on the market today are muzzle devices. In general terms, a "Muzzle Device" is simply a CNC-machined product that gets added to the end of the barrel or muzzle of a firearm in order to accomplish a specific task and come in many variations. A few objectives these devices try to enhance and accommodate for are:

Single Stage and Two Stage Triggers

In recent years, rifles have become some of the most popular and sought-out firearms in America. Countless variations have been introduced, from fluctuations in manifolds to innovative modifications evolving elements in design and functionality to augment activities such as hunting, competition and self-defense. Unfortunately, the advances in technology and innovation integrated failed to evolve the traditional issues with stock triggers, demanding shooters to search for solutions.
