postheadericon Concealed Carry And The Holiday Season – When Waistlines Meet Waistbands, Part I

As a concealed carrier, calories count. An inside the waistband holster with a concealed carry micro-compact or sub-compact pistol is sure to add at least an inch and a quarter to the waistline. When that competes with Aunt May’s turkey, hilarity ensues.

What are some holiday considerations you take as a concealed carrier? There’s more than meets the eye. In this first part of a two part series, we’ll discuss some real things to think about this holiday season — and why it’s best to start planning now.

Fat Shaming The Holster

No one forced that midnight slice of apple pie. It happened on its own. And next day Thanksgiving sandwiches? Delicious but damaging.

Anything that hurts your waistline will also hurt your concealed carry practice. If your trousers are uncomfortable to wear, your trousers plus a holster plus a gun will make for a downright excruciating day.

The easiest thing to do is admit you know yourself. If you typically put on weight during the holiday season — not at all uncommon — then plan for your clothing accordingly. Pants that are normally tight while you’re carrying concealed will be doubly so with your love handles overflowing them. No need to muffin top when you can simply switch into a pair of trousers that accommodate your “winter weight”.

Above all, don’t blame your gun and holster. If you need to, switch down to a micro-compact or sub-compact if you typically carry a compact. Even a change in a half an inch on the waistline can create a much more comfortable situation.

Tips To Win The Battle of the Bulge

  • Stick to a diet that accounts for larger-than-average holiday meals.
  • If you know you’re going to indulge, plan on wearing pants that are a bit more accommodating.

Don’t Be The Road Warrior

Unfortunately, it’s not like danger takes a holiday. A lot of people feel a heightened sense of stress during the holidays. Mix that with the demands of family, busy occasions, and the rest and there are all of the ingredients for flare ups of things like road rage, heated arguments, and unnecessary conduct.

Any situation you have the opportunity to walk away from is a guaranteed win. There’s no “if”s about it. When you encounter someone who is being overly aggressive, it’s far better to walk or drive away. If you feel threatened — but not in the immediate, lethal variety — call the police and let them deal with it. Those poor souls signed up to deal with every holiday nutjob in their jurisdiction — you didn’t.

Tips to Avoid The Holiday Hassle

  • Walk away from an argument
  • Don’t pull over to handle crazy, erratic drivers
  • Call the police if you feel a situation is truly escalating

Home For The Holidays

If you’re someone who has to travel to see relatives, make sure you bone up on the law before crossing state lines… Even if you follow the philosophy, ‘they can’t stop you if they can’t see you.’

All it takes is one routine traffic stop by a patrolman to turn your holiday season into a lengthy, costly trial.

You’re not the bad guy. You’re not the one who came up with the dumb laws regarding 2A and concealed carry. But you are a responsible citizen. If you have a family, they’re depending on you to be there for them. You can’t afford to get hauled off by the police because you carried a gun across state lines into — for example — New Jersey or New York. Just don’t do it.

Tips For Crossing State Lines While Carrying Concealed

  • Know the laws of the state you’re visiting
  • Know if that state honors your Right to Carry
  • Keep it concealed at all times

In Part II of this article, we’ll discuss a few more factors that every concealed carrier should consider when getting ready for the holiday season. As always, stay safe, keep it concealed, and carry everyday, everywhere.

The Netgear R6300 Wireless-AC DD-WRT FlashRouter

Netgear R6300 Wireless-AC DD-WRT FlashRouter

Once again, FlashRouters has bolstered our popular router lineup with a lightning-quick Wireless-AC DD-WRT router. Rejoice!

Ever since we added our first DD-WRT Wireless-AC router and our first Tomato Wireless-AC router, Wireless-AC DD-WRT devices have been flying off of the shelves. It would seem people simply can’t get enough of Wireless-AC’s peerless speed ( up to 1750 Mbps vs 600-900 for the best Wireless-N devices).

Up until now, our only Wireless-AC routers have come from Asus. Well, now we have a  Netgear Wireless-AC router to keep them company. Prepare to meet the Netgear R6300 V1 AC1750 Wireless-AC DD-WRT FlashRouter!

Netgear R6300 Specs

Leaving aside the tremendous wireless speeds featured by integrating Wireless-AC, the Netgear R6300 is truly something to behold.

Netgear has filled this stylish WiFi beast with the best processor we currently offer, a robust 600 MHz Broadcom processor for handling the increasing demands of WiFi users. The embedded 128 MB RAM/128 MB flash memory, are by far the largest amount of flash memory (the next closest is 32 MB) we have been able to offer on a DD-WRT router. Flash memory size is important for installing superior high-end versions of DD-WRT while leaving ample room for advanced packages and setups.

For VPN users looking for optimal speeds, the better the processor, RAM & Flash the better overall performance capabilities when encrypting and decryption data and streaming video from all across the world.

And don’t forget the basics of any high-performance network centerpiece,  the Netgear R6300 includes four gigabit ports, two USB 2.0 ports, and six internal antennas.

But it’s in the Wireless-AC where the Netgear R6300 really makes its name. This dual-band beauty is capable of running two concurrent signals at 450 Mbps on the 2.4 Ghz with 1300 Mbps on the 5 GHz (the clear HD streaming band).

Future-proof your network today with the Netgear R6300 Wireless-AC router; you’ll be glad you did when all those demanding new holiday gadgets and gifts start getting on to your wireless network.

DD-WRT Router Firmware Benefits

DD-WRT Firmware

DD-WRT Firmware

If we had just provided you with a Netgear R6300 and left it alone, you’d have a superb router on your hands. But why do that when we can super-charge the Netgear R6300 with DD-WRT firmware?

DD-WRT is a replacement firmware designed to expand the functionality of any router it graces. Adding this firmware to a router allows the user to access advanced security options, control their bandwidth allocation, and even extend their wireless range.

What’s more, a DD-WRT router is compatible with PPTP, OpenVPN, & L2TP VPN integration, thus providing users with a more manageable VPN experience. Presumably, one subscribes to a VPN to secure their online information, access regionally restricted material, and generally simplify his or her life, so why not pick a router with firmware that will make your VPN that much easier to access or use?

DD-WRT is truly a marvel, and to illustrate our point, we’re going to give you a partial list of its benefits of DD-WRT on a Netgear R6300:

And again, that’s a partial list! Suffice to say, DD-WRT has the power to turn ordinary routers into great routers, and great routers into extraordinary ones. It’s no wonder we flash so many of our routers with this powerful replacement firmware.
