A Rifle We Passed on – Ross 1905 Sporterzied

Occasionally. Not Often. But occasionally I get an email or private message that goes something like this, “I wish I could find the deals you guys do”. Or…”It must be nice to have the hook-up for all these guns”. The truth is, we don’t have any “hook-ups”. And frankly, we really don’t know that many people in the firearms business. …

Armory Chat 26 – Old Guy Air Guns

By popular demand, here is a close up of the GAMO 640 rifle we use for deprivation around the armory buildings. And a bonus, the very first gun I ever owned. The Red Ryder BB Gun my father gave me when I was 8 years old.     Marky www.John1911.com “Shooting Guns & Having Fun”

Everybody Needs an AirGun

When I was a child, the very first “gun” I ever received was…and I am not joking…a Red Ryder BB-Gun. But it didn’t have a compass in the stock like the same model in the famous Christmas movie. Don’t get me wrong, I had fired a .22 rifle under the supervision of my grandfather. But the Red Ryder was the …

Mexico is a Narco-State

This is a video that recently came out of Mexico. A high ranking member of the Sinaloa Cartel was killed and this was his funeral procession. Many of our readers will be interested in it since it shows open and obvious automatic weapons fire by criminal gangs. When citizens are disarmed, only criminals will have guns. But wait, there’s more… …

Blaming Your Rifle Barrel

If you buy a Ruger RPR rifle and decide to put a new barrel in it without shooting out the original, you need to be punched in the mouth. Seriously. WTF is wrong with you people? The whole point of the RPR is to have an affordable, quality, precision rifle that is ready to go out of the box. The …

Interesting Shotgun Kaboom

Well…it may not be interesting for you, but it is for me. I have seen just about every kind of weapon come apart. Just. One thing I have never personally witnessed or experienced is a shotgun kaboom. The reports are this was NOT a 12/20 syndrome. But rather the use of old ammunition. Perhaps very, very, very old ammunition that …

Gas Rings Seal Test

There are three gas rings as part of your AR bolt and they function a lot like the piston rings in your car’s engine. If the rings do not create a good seal, your rifle may not function properly, so it’s important to make sure they provide a good seal. Fortunately, there’s an easy way to check this. Remove the …

My Debate Between 6.5CM and 6.5 Swede

6.5 Creedmoor is all the rage with the cool kids. It fits in short actions. It fits in standard AI style magazines and it seems to fit in AR’s (I say seems on the last example since I don’t personally have any time on any 6.5 AR). So…all the companies started making 6.5 short action rifles. Great, right? Here’s the …

How Tomahawks Work

US sea based cruise missiles have been in the news lately. And I figured I would take this opportunity to show the full flight profile of them. The media is showing the ship board launches, but once they get some speed and deploy their control surfaces, they in essence operate like an airplane. A 400mph airplane. And that number is …
