Boresize Guide

On a return trip from a recent range session, I was dropping Freeze off and unloading his gear from the truck. While we were standing around, I noticed a small tool on the end of some keys in his garage. He eye’d me knowingly and stated, “You don’t know what that is do you?” It’s easier not to lie in …

Scope Trick: Zip Tie Your Power Adjustment

Do you have issues turning your power-adjustment ring on your scope at speed? Do you have a power setting you prefer and need a way to reference it without breaking away from the eye-box? One trick that has been around for a while is to put a large zip tie on the scope. Typically the best ones are larger in …

US Navy to Challenge Illegal Chinese Bases

As we have reported for a few years, the Chinese military has been illegally building bases in the South China Sea. Not only is this territory well beyond their national waters, other nations have also long claimed this area. And for years, the Obama White House has been ignoring this problem. It’s pure weakness on his part and I am …

Holland & Holland

While traveling outside DC, I had occasion to run into the actual Holland & Holland company. The folks were visiting from the UK headquarters and brought toys with them. I was able to fondle a few firearms and shoot some photos without looking like too much of a groupie. This SxS was tagged at $121,000. In “12 Bore”. I think. …

Glock 17 Pistol Work

Of all the various Glocks in existence, my favorite is the Glock 17 GEN 4. Here are some pictures of some Glock work I put in recently. The holster is by Raven and is AIWB. And on any cold and rainy day one needs some caffeine to keep the blood pumping. Our slang term for this product is, “liquid crack”. …

POTD: The Boneyard

Just a quick picture of the day. Freeze is a very accomplished hunter. So much so, he processes his own deer every season. As a result, unless a trophy buck comes by his stand he usually shoots does. For the meat. Now don’t get me wrong, he will shoot bucks but his main priority is meat. So every year, there …

A “Nobody” From Oklahoma: The Career of MSG. Joshua Wheeler

“Sweet Mother of God. Would you look at that?”, a co-worker mumbled as he handed me a copy of MSG. Wheeler’s official DoD photo. “Yeah, 30 of these guys show up in one place, you can damn sure bet they aren’t on a Train, Advise & Assist mission”, I snorted. I won’t rehash all the information that is being talked …

M1 Carbine Paratrooper

I have spent a lot of time carrying heavy rifles up big hills. One doesn’t have to walk more than a few hours to appreciate smaller and lighter options. While I was at Camp Perry this summer, I ran into 3rd party, aftermarket M1 Carbine Paratrooper stocks: I have never personally owned a M1 Carbine and have very little experience …

Youth Guns—Build Or Buy?

There are several “phases” one goes through as a hunter. They include a phase in which you just want to get an animal to prove you are a hunter. That is usually followed by a phase in which you try to get as many animals as you can to prove how well you hunt. From there, many transition to “trophy” …

Hornady Critical Duty Ammo with M&P 40 & Smith & Wesson Shield

A good friend of our was wanting to test out his carry ammunition on a S&W Shield 40. It’s the same ammo he uses in his full sized M&P 40. But like anything, one needs to test carry ammo in carry guns before use. I have never carried a Shield or used the Hornady Critical Defense Ammunition. But I can …

Tombstone Actor Shot

Many of you have heard about the shooting at Tombstone this week. A regular cadre of actors reenacts famous gunfights for the tourist trade. In season it can draw quite the large crowd. The shows take place right on main street and are both interesting and entertaining for self-defense experts and spectators alike. The accident seems like a pretty unique …

Daewoo KR-200 at Camp Perry

The Daewoo rifles. Where to begin? I have been looking at them for a while with the intention of picking one up. But my main issue is I don’t know enough about them to tell one from the other. Some are piston guns. Some are DI guns. Some take AK mags. Some have thumb-hole stocks for AWB compliance. In summary, …

My CCW ER Visit

I have been intentionally holding these photos back for a while. Sometime over the summer I suffered a minor injury that was directly related to my activities in shooting. While not rising to Level One Trauma Center significant, it was decided I needed medical attention. And I was armed the whole time. Disclaimer: in no way am I giving, or even …
