Shotgun Security Overkill?

Admittedly I am not a big wing shooter. I have one Browning O/U that has been in my possession for almost 20 years. But I occasionally fondle O/U’s on the store shelves. Perhaps I am looking to be inspired? Or perhaps I am looking to keep up on, what to me, seems to be a slow innovation sector of the …

Fake Nazi Guns

Many years ago when I first meet Freeze, he and I were discussing our individual firearms tastes and collections: Old. New. Milsurp. American. Soviet. European. Black Powder. You name it.  But he said one thing that really piqued my interest. Something I had never heard before. It went like this,  “I only pay repro prices for Nazi stuff.  That way …

An Ode to Power: The Caterpillar D8 is Leaving Us.

All major dirt work is completed on the rifle range. And with that, the D8 must move on. She is needed elsewhere. My admiration and respect for the, “Great 8” has grown exponentially Day after day. Pushing through Hill and dale was quite stressful. Even more so when you figure out the USGS survey had significant errors in it.  But …

Gravel for Pistol – Tac Rifle Pit

So…here is what 6 dump trucks of gravel looks like before being pushed down with the small dozer. Right now, the question is, “Will 6 trucks be enough?”. Frankly, we just don’t know. It might. Or it might require a 7th. We’ve bought so much gravel, we are getting a break on the price.  Also…consider this: dump trucks hauling gravel …

POTD — Beretta 92D Police Trade-In 

Take delivery of a Beretta 92D. The DAO version of the venerable M9 pistol. And the question is asked, “Are we sure it’s a police trade-in?” As I open the box and look inside the flap, it becomes painfully clear the answer is yes. Do you see the Police Evidence Markings inside the box? That is what law enforcement calls …

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 …
