Serpa Holsters Are Terrible And If You Disagree You Are Wrong

Posted by Ron Carter on

We at Redleg Tactical are a salty bunch, there is no denying that. Redleg Tactical is comprised of veterans and industry professionals who have the superpower of spotting a used car salesman 10 miles out in heavy fog. If you have seen our Facebook page, you know very well that we commonly delight in making fun of gimmicks, absurdities and people who defend those absurd gimmicks.

Self Defense Law

Posted by Ron Carter on

Disclaimer: I am not a lawyer. I am not your lawyer. The information below is for your education and entertainment and is not legal advice!  I teach our Introduction to Concealed Carry course roughly two to three times each month. During the classroom portion we go over the laws concerning deadly force. When can we use deadly force? To what extent can we use it and so on. While I briefly cover all of the pertinent information to Colorado's Concealed Handgun Permit holder, that is a subject which you could spend years on. Andrew Branca has done just that. He is...
