Ruger Enters the Suppressor Business

Scott Mayer just informed me that Ruger is now in the suppressor business. They have a Page describing their products and how to buy them. And they also just posted a Youtube Video showing how to clean a .22 variant. I expect to see more at SHOT Show next week.   Marky www.tacticaltshirts.com www.john1911.com “Shooting Guns & Having Fun”

Old School Retention Holster

“I’m not as good as I once was, but I’m good once as I ever was.” Some days I feel like this. I’ve been around a long time. I have seen things come and go, and then come back around again. I have also seen technology and equipment drastically change as well. The advent of strong and cheap polymers is …

Mounting a scope on Son-in-Law’s 10/22

Who doesn’t like a Ruger 10/22? We love ‘em! Now that deer season is over, Freeze has had some time to mess with some backlogged projects. One of them was mounting a scope on his SIL’s (Son-in-Law) Ruger 22. When I heard this was happening, I asked Freeze to post some pictures of his process and tools. Why? It’s a …

Com-Bloc RPG with Bi-Pod

Some of you are aware that besides firearms, we keep examples of man portable ordnance in the armory as well. A month or so back, we acquired a variant of the standard RPG that many may not have seen. The bipod RPG. What is nice about this example is the condition. When it arrived we were all stunned. The two …

POTD HK VP9 Wear

This photo was taken in August of 2015. As I type it is January of 2016. I had been carrying this VP9 since the winter. Compared to now, it almost looks brand new. In the harsh light, a lot of the wear is masked. But even then, the beginnings of significant wear is evident on the slide. So I figured …

Blaser F3 Shotgun

First of all, I am not a clay-bird kind of shooter. I own only one O/U shotgun. A Browning Citori I needed to buy for an event 15 years ago. Back then there was a shooter in my squad who was toting around a $25,000 shotgun. I recall it being a Perazzi. I only noticed it since that guy never …

Ruger’s New Delta Ring/Nut Rocks

Last year, Ruger came out with its new AR-556 rifle. The gun is a very basic direct impingement (DI)-type AR-15 with a suggested retail of $749. It’s Ruger’s first DI M4, and the first gun made at the new Mayodan, NC plant. Despite being a basic gun it’s a full-featured AR. It has the brass deflector, dust cover and forward …

Rhodesian A5 Shotgun Pictures on Range

A few months back, I posted some videos of us testing a Rhodesian A5 shotgun. Turns out, I was derelict in my duties and I did not post the still photos. As you can see in these pictures, the A5 successfully digested Winchester 12 gauge bulk pack target loads. And for those asking, this shotgun’s capacity is 8+1. VERY formidable …

Mountain Mike European Skull Mount

I decided that my 2015 buck really wasn’t big enough to justify doing a full mount. So after discussing with Freeze, we decided to do a European skull mount. As I type, the rotting skull in tied down in the back 40 waiting for mother nature to do it’s microbial magic. But that got Freeze to thinking. He told me …

POTD – Knives on Planes in Europe

Thought you’d get a giggle out of the attached photo.  It’s a 6-inch stainless steel serrated knife.  The stewardess on Lufthansa kindly provided me with two of them on my recent trip to Frankfurt–one with dinner and one with breakfast, and again on my return flight–one with lunch, one with dinner.  Mind you, this was in one of the economy-class …
