S&W 547 9mm Revolver

    I will start off by saying that I am not a revolver guy. Life and experience has always lead me to more of the automatic side of the fence. That is a reflection of my “universe” in some ways, and of the times we live in as well.  Through pure chance, I happened on a K-frame S&W revolver …

Affordable Truck Gun Project — VZ 58

VZ 58 PHOTO GALLERY AT BOTTOM OF POST   So Freeze and I have been talking about getting some “truck guns”. What is a truck-gun you ask? Well…that’s a complicated question depending on what your needs are. Let me be brutally honest: For me a truck-gun is something that must be expendable. Now before everyone starts howling, let me explain …

Magneto Speed Chronograph Testing.

  A co-worker of mine recently purchased a Magneto Speed Chronograph. This is a big upgrade to this 20 year old 3 screen model. I joined him on the range to test it out on his SCAR 17 and my Blaser Tactical 2. Here are my quick impressions: 1. Very quick to setup when compared to tradition screened models. 2. …

Getting The Crossbow’s Ready For The Season: Horton & PSE

    So it’s well into summer and now is the time to check your hunting gear. We always start with archery since it is the season that opens first. You don’t want to be pulling out your hunting gear last minute. First of all, if there is a major issue it might take many weeks to get it addressed. …

The Arrogance Of The Trained.

  The Shooting of the two Police Officers and the subsequent shooting in Walmart have just happened. This post addresses something that has been bothering me for a long while. This first appeared on our Company Facebook page. By popular request, I am reposting it here.   Rant on: I was very upset earlier today but I have calmed down …

Pulling Out The Backup CCW Glock 19

I travel quite a bit. Mostly by airplane. As such, checking luggage is simply a reality. When I made the switch back to Glocks as a work pistol, I automatically purchased two Glock 19 GEN 4 FDE’s. My logic being the 19’s would be the CCW platform of choice. And if one goes down for repair, or even worse become …

Les Baer TRS 1911 with 30,000 Rounds

I will say this right up front: I have a pet peeve. Especially when it concerns 1911 users. The hypocrisy. Have your attention yet? About to be offended? Relax. Hear me out. One syndrome I dislike in the 1911 community is the obsession on “perfection”. On one hand, you will see this group talk about how the “1911 got it …

Shooting Pigs In Texas

A couple of good friends went down to Texas for an annual pig hunt. Those bad-boys down in Texas are quite skittish and are difficult to get close in on. But…his trusty Light Tactical Rifle (LTR) connected.  Of note, all the pork was processed into sausage. –Marky www.tacticaltshirts.com “Shooting Guns & Having Fun”

Cracked 1944 Finnish Mosin Nagant Getting Ready For Coyote Hunting.

Which is where this story begins…..   Now that all the gut piles have gone and the long hard winter is wrapping up, its time to get …

Hard Primer Testing. 308 ASYM Ammo.

  We were out getting some training and I had a hard-primer strike.  Well…at first I didn’t know it was that. I was fearful the issue was something wrong with the FP / striker in my Blaser. After pulling the bullet (ASYM 175g 308), checking there was powder, and putting the unloaded case in an AR to see if I …

338 Lapua Rifle KaBoom.

Here are some photos of a Savage 338 Lapua that suffered a catastrophic failure when the user, finding his brass cases were sticking in the chamber, was using cleaning rod to push them out. It is my understanding that this user was quite experienced and just had a “brain fart” and forgot what he was doing.   The shooter was …

Schmidt-Rubin 7.5 Swiss At the Range

  We ran across a guy shooting a Schmidt-Rubin the other day. Very nice rifle. Since we were also running a straight-pull rifle (Blaser R8), it was kind of a neat coincidence. The caliber was 7.5 Swiss in a military loading. The brand was called GP 11.  The really interesting information about the GP 11 loading is it’s popularity with …

Cold Weather Zero Testing: Blaser Tactical 2 & 308 ASYM 175g Ammo.

The day before Thanksgiving. I took some time on Wednesday to sneak out of the office and do some cold weather / zero testing. It was just below 30 degrees around here and I figured while the world was getting ready for turkey, I would get some trigger time. You will see a 5-shot group at 100 yards. The POA …
