Stop Arguing the Orlando Shooter Didn’t Use a AR Rifle

I have to say something to my fellow pro-gun advocates. Don’t be so quick to promote the “The Orlando shooter didn’t use an AR” thing. Why? One, it means you are giving up the argument about the AR. Which you shouldn’t do. Two, I personally don’t give a flying Freak if the SIG MCX uses a buffer-tube, is DI or …

What Handgun Should I Buy?

Sometimes I get questions from random people on the internet. And they tend to repeat. So I figured I would start to post them on the blog and just link to them as needed going forward. One of the most common is from non-gun people, “What is a reliable but budget minded handgun option for the average person?” “Average person” …

Israeli Sniper Stock Replacement

Those that are regular readers are aware that I have been looking for a decent Israeli 7.62 Mauser for quite sometime. My ultimate goal would be to convert it to a “fantasy” sniper. Something I could bang around with, shoot frequently, but also have as a semi-historical piece. One of the issues with the Israeli guns is, frankly, the IDF …

The Pulled-Pork Express

Had some inquiries about the pig hunt. Specifically in the article “Pig Processing”. Freeze makes a references to “Taking the company trailer” to bring as many pigs home as possible. So here is a photo of the “Pulled Pork Express”. Crew-cab truck. Double-axel trailer. Secured and hardened truck-bed cover. Big V8 Engine to pull it all. We easily could have …

POTD — FG42

It’s more than just a Picture of the Day. It’s multiple pictures, but when you are talking about a weapon as cool as the FG 42, one image is just not enough. For the record, I have never touched a FG 42 much less ever fired one. But there is that company in Texas making the reproductions that seem cool. …

Man Injured in Hog Hunt

I was recently sent this photo since we posted about pig hunting in Texas. I don’t recall where the sender said it happened, but this is what the tusk of a wild pig can do to a human. To my thinking, the most dangerous thing that can happen in pig hunting is injuring an animal and having to go after …

Pig Processing

One really neat thing about Freeze is his inherent proclivity to “do it myself”. If he’s being modest, he’ll always justify it by saying, “I’m a cheap bastard”. And while he doesn’t like to waste money, that isn’t really the driving force behind that trait. I suspect it’s something deeper. Freeze is actually a direct descendant of the original Mayflower …

FN-15 Military Collector M16A4 At Buds

Over the holiday weekend, I had a chance to run over to Bud’s gun shop to do some window shopping. I did this for one specific gun. They have a “FN-15 M16A4 Military Collector” in stock. I’ve been eyeing these since they came out at SHOT. Actually truth be told, I have been eyeing all three of them: The A4, …

Rare Japanese Rifles — Barn Find

This story just recently popped up in the milsurp circles. It seems some very rare, and cherry WWII Japanese rifles were recently discovered by a collector. It’s quite the tale. I didn’t even know there was “Mexican Type 38” rifle. The author claims fewer than 50 are known to exist today. If true, this seems like quite the find. I’m …

Video — This Is a Bad M&P Shield Holster

I hate buying new gear. I really do. Because we are just too damn busy actually shooting to be dicking around with new, untested stuff. So imagine my surprise when one of my goto-holster companies sent something so egregious, it is getting sent back. The point? At the end of the day, it is the USER who is responsible if …

Shooting a Gorilla with Your CCW Handgun

Imagine being a CCW holder being faced with this situation? Having to shoot a 400# gorilla with your pea-shooter handgun? Let me explain. There was an incident at a US based zoo. At a outdoor gorilla exhibit, a 4 year old boy was able to climb around, over, through, under the barricades and fall 12 feet into the gorilla enclosure. …
