The 100 Yard Shooting Position

This spot was picked so we could zero 100 yards at a zero degree angle. In reality, this position is a ZERO to 500 yard shooting position.  So think about that. We could functionally shoot every tac rifle, battle rifle, hunting rifle and black powder rifle from right here and get 80% of our work done. Things are coming along …

California Bullet Button

Like many of our readers, I have heard of California Bullet Buttons. But to be completely honest, I had never personally seen or handled one. So I wasn’t familiar with their particular idiosyncrasies.  I had heard they don’t require a modification of the firearm. I had heard they could be user installed or removed. But since I had no experience …

Race Car, Bar Art

An old hunting buddy owns his own Race Car. He runs it on the Modified Dirt Track circuit. I honestly can’t say I know much about it. But when the opportunity to get an old quarter panel came up, I jumped on it.  Who doesn’t like race car art in their man cave?     Freeze www.John1911.com “Shooting Guns & …

Armory Chat 44: Khyber Pass Rifle & War Rug

We have this new, but faked to look old, Khyber Pass Martini Henry Rifle. You can barely call it a gun as I’m sure it would grenade on any user who might attempt to fire it. Recently we ran across a unique Afghan War Rug that is the perfect size to pair with this rifle: 1’x3’. So…we have put them …

Glock Display – Cody Firearms Museum (Hi-Res)

I took these pics a while back while out West on a hunting trip. Currently the Cody Firearms Museum is undergoing a major renovation so most of the collection is put away.  In the mean time, if you want to see a, “gaggle of Glocks” check out these thumb nails. I have left the images full size so the viewer …

Insight / L3 Mossberg Shotgun Light

Someone asked and I honestly don’t have a lot of answers. The light I use my on Mossberg 590 is an Insight Technologies / L3 fore-end. I do not believe they are made any longer, so that is a negative. The positive of that could be you might find one on the cheap. If that happens, I can’t find any …

New Rifle Range Building Install 

As some of you have noticed, we haven’t posted at all over the previous week. The reason being we are on the final stages of the new rifle range construction.  So it’s been a big race between keeping current armory obligations while putting final touches on the range.  The video isn’t much, but is a much needed step to get …

Rant – Arrogant Cool Kids

So…why in the world should a civilian associate themselves with SWAT / DD-214 / “Elite” Shooters if those bozos freely admit they will never, ever, ever respect the accomplished civilian shooter? It’s bad enough the “cool kids” act this way. But that’s nothing new. But what do we call these self-hating hanger’s on? Fans? Groupies? Dumb-asses? MOA Sluts? I know …

A Rifle We Should Have Bought: Marlin 44 Mag

Long story short. This came up in an estate sale. I passed on it. Marky then passed on it. And finally my Son-in-law snatched it up. And every year at deer camp, I am reminded that passing it up was a mistake. But at least my SIL has it.    Freeze John1911.com “Shooting Guns & Having Fun”

Range Construction- 600 Yard Test

Update on the range construction. What I’m doing here is testing line of sight and theoretical shooting positions for shots from 600 and 700 yards.  I placed the target down the hill at 550 to give me some breathing room Incase there was an issue. Or out this way: DON’T SHOT OVER THE TARGET. All went well. We will tell …

The Keeper Wedge Replacement

One thing that came up recently in regards to AIWB carry was the concept that some holster designs are consumable. At least parts of them are. Instead of trying to explain this concept, it’s just easier to show it in pictures.  The triangular “wedge” you see works as a lever against your holster. The belt is the pivot point. And …

China’s Expanding Empire

While the media screams about Russia, exaggerating its ability to be a threat to anyone with its shrinking population of 140 million and an economy now smaller than Italy’s and in more trouble, China is in expansion mode, fueled by 1.3 Billion people, an excess of young males to man an army (due to the one child policy now terminated), …

D8 Dozer vs Tree 

Range construction progress. After some debate, it became clear that I had to knock down the best tree on the property. A giant sycamore tree.  Here’s the problem. It was way too big for me to saw at my skill level. So…why not use the D8 50 ton Dozer knock it down?  It took 40 minutes and at one point …
