APPLETON, Wis. – CONCEALMENT Magazine, a publication of CMG West, LLC, has released its latest issue, number 30, with the latest in home and self-defense, new firearms reviews, and expert advice on concealed carry.

We’ve seen a lot more interest in revolvers in recent years, but they never really went away. Some may have been languishing in nightstand drawers or remained unseen in ankle rigs, but they’ve been a consistent presence since before the American Civil War. Colt revived their snake guns just a few years back, Ruger has been producing their LCR snubbies for more than a decade at this point, and Smith & Wesson has been pumping out various forms of I- and J-frames for more than 125 years. It’s been said before that if you want to see what’s new in the gun industry, go look at old gun magazines. And while history definitely rings, it’s not just within the world

of guns; mustaches and mullets are also having another moment here in the early 21st century — and they never really went away either.

And so we find that this issue of CONCEALMENT features a couple of columns on wheelguns: RECOIL OFFGRID Editor Tom Marshall, who can usually be found with some sort of red-dotted double-stack concealed about his person, ran a revo through the wringer at an Independence Training class taught by Glen Stilson (see page 68). That piece, in particular, will be helpful to people already running modern magfeds who’ve somehow suddenly found themselves on the revolver-curious continuum. Then, on page 44, you’ll find Taurus doing their level best to both modernize and get back to their roots, with Tamara Keel putting their new 856 Executive Grade through the paces. Of course, there will always be naysayers. And though

it’s certainly true that there are some downsides (many a modern design exists for a reason), in terms of a bread-and-butter concealed pistol solution, they’ll always have a seat at the table.

If all of this revolver talk conjures the taste of Werther’s mixed with mothballs, the cover of this issue should have already eased those worries. The Chiappa CBR-9 Black Rhino not only takes stick mags and looks straight out of an episode of Battlestar Galactica, it also has some decidedly untraditional design features. In other words, a boring pistol-caliber-shoved-into-an-AR it is not. This is one we’ve been waiting for years to finally hit American shores,

and we’re excited to show it to you.

Inside this issue we also review the new FN 509 CC Edge, discuss revolvers for concealed carry, and provide an overview on hotel safety. We give you the inside track on EDC knife positions for gun owners, discuss effective strikes to earn your draw, and go over proper armed structural movement. We also look at some of the latest holsters on the market, optimize an Alpha Foxtrot AF1911, examine home defense setups of the average citizen, and take a look at a target drill designed by a competitive shooter.
