Richard L. Johnson
writer, photographer, publisher
As the publisher and editor of GunsHolstersAndGear.com, I provide news and reviews of firearms and related shooting equipment. On this site, I’ve set a new standard for thoroughness and transparency in reviews that is unparalleled.
On GunsHolstersAndGear, I provide unequalled coverage of trade shows including the SHOT Show, Special Operations Forces Industry Conference, NASGW Expo & Annual Meeting and the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits.
I publish one of the top police blogs, BlueSheepdog.com. BlueSheepdog writers provide a wide range of articles focused on providing information that working cops want. Topics covered on this site include gear reviews, investigation tips and officer safety training. The material provided on this site is used by police departments, law enforcement academies and universities.
Additionally, I am a freelance writer that regularly provides reviews and articles for Athlon Media Group. I am the editor of the Stockpile column in Ballistic magazine, and my work has also been published in:
Guns & Weapons for Law Enforcement
Special Weapons for Military & Police
Personal & Home Defense
Concealed Carry Handguns
My writing has also been featured by other publishers including:
NRA American Warrior
The Daily Caller
Police & Security News
I have provided background materials and consultations to journalists, legislators and novelists on police procedure, investigations, use of force, training and other firearms and law enforcement topics. Additionally, I have ghostwritten articles and books for publication.
