Specialty Prints

TALTAC UPDATE:

We try to keep the most popular specialty prints in stock at all times.  Specialty prints are only available while supplies last so if you like one, don’t hesitate to get it before it’s gone.  Many of the prints get cycled in and out through the year as the supply changes and may not be there when you check back later.  New holster and print options are uploaded to the website constantly so check back often.

Adjustable Retention

Due to our commitment to excellence, we are constantly finding any way possible to upgrade our holsters.  We have begun the process of making every holster with an adjustable retention.  The photos of the new holsters will be updated on the website as they begin to be put into circulation.  You can see some photos of the new holsters on our social sights like Instagram before they will be available anywhere else.  Even though we have received nothing but positive feedback about our built in retentions, we wanted to offer as many options to personalize your holster while maintaining our structural designs as possible.  We hope everyone will enjoy the new feature and we look forward to your feedback.

Universal Background Checks and the Gun Show Loophole

IMG_0800

Let’s finally put the uproar about background checks and the gun show loophole to rest.  Every business that sells firearms must be licensed by the ATF with a Federal Firearms License.  Every person who meets the legal requirements of the state they reside in is eligible to purchase a firearm.  Some of the requirements are age, mental health status, criminal record status and domestic violence history.    These are a few of the basics as well as different state laws regarding number of firearms you can purchase and waiting periods. 

All of the businesses must then do a federal background check on the person before they can be sold the firearm.  The person will be approved, delayed or denied on the spot based on the check.  This is the accumulation of information the federal government has gathered based on a person’s contact with various city, county, state and federal governmental agencies.  An approval will let the person complete the purchase, and a denial will not.

Delayed responses mean the government needs to further review the person’s background before a judgement is made.  At this point a person will be told they must wait for a response or no response from the government on whether the sale can be completed.  It should be noted that many businesses will later receive an approved check on a delayed response only to lose thousands of dollars in sales from customers who do not return.

A business must complete this same background check process whether they are at their shop or selling at a gun show.  So the argument that we should have universal background checks is unfounded since the entire country already has mandatory background checks on every firearm sold by a dealer.  The only reason gun shows may be singled out as a loophole is for private person sales.  Again this does not affect the mandatory background check a business conducts at the gun shows. 

The reason a person is able to sell a firearm at a gun show without doing a background check is because it is a private person’s transfer of property.  This is the same as if the person were selling the firearm from their home, not at the gun show.  It should also be noted that many states do not allow this private sale to happen and have laws on the books for the transfer to be done with a background check from a FFL holder.  In the states that do allow this to happen it is widely understood that a person has the right to sell his or her personal property without involving the government.  Imagine if you had to involve the government to sell your steak knives, car or a baseball bat since all these things can be used as weapons.  Many private sales that occur at gun shows are made by people buying and selling antique firearms or collectors. 

To sum it up, next time someone says we need universal background checks let them know they are already in place.  We as a free society cannot stop all violence and evil in the world.  No system is perfect and never can be as man is flawed.  People who intend to do harm will always find a way to get a firearm, no law will ever stop it.  Look at the fact that we already have laws against rape, robbery and murder but the violence still occurs. 

We can however ensure that law abiding citizens who do legally pass their background check will be able to have a firearm for their protection, hunting, collecting or family traditions.  So legally carry, train with and responsibly handle your legally obtained firearms.  While you’re at it think about wrapping it in a beautiful, rugged hand crafted holster from TALTAC.  WWW.TALTACMFG.COM

Dallas

pray dallas

This has been a terrible tragedy in Dallas.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Dallas Police Department and to the family and friends of the officers who were killed and wounded.  These events show the truly evil side of humanity and what man is capable of doing to one another.  On the other hand you also see the best of mankind in the bravery, selflessness and heroism shown by the officers of the Dallas Police Department.  These Officers put on that uniform every day knowing their lives are at risk and go into our communities to selflessly protect and serve. 

America needs to embrace its law enforcement officers especially in these troubled times.  Remembering that these are flesh and blood Americans who have a higher calling to serve others, not robots used for government enforcement.  So please next time you see a Police Officer thank them for what they have done for others and more importantly what they might be called to selflessly do in the future.  Please read the prayer below, this exemplifies who our police officer really are.

Police Officer’s Prayer to St. Michael

Dear Saint Michael, heaven’s glorious commissioner of police, who once so neatly and successfully cleared God’s premises of all its undesirables, look with kindly and professional eyes on your earthly force.  Give us cool heads, stout hearts, hard punches and uncanny flair for investigation and wise judgement.

Make us the terror of burglars, the friend of children and law-abiding citizens, kind to strangers, polite to bores, strict with law-breakers and impervious to temptations.  In troubles and riots give us sheer muscle without temper, at the police court, give us love for truth and evidence without any thought of self.

You know, Saint Michael, from your own experiences with the devil that the police officer’s lot on earth is not always a happy one; but your sense of duty that so pleased God, your hard knocks that so surprised the devil, and your angelic self-control give us inspiration.  Make us as loyal to the law of God as we are particular about the law of the land.

And when we lay down our night sticks, enroll us in your heavenly force, where we will be as proud to guard the throne of God as we have been to guard the city of men.    Amen.
