19 Pieces of Steel

New for 2021, is our upgraded rifle range. 19 pieces of permanently installed steel. Where? More challenging targets (read smaller) in the open, and some partially obscured targets in tree lines and brush piles. These will get more difficult to see once spring fully sets in.  Why? Last year it became obvious we didn’t have enough challenging steel for the …

Steyr GB Pistol

Been looking for one of these for quite a while, but the prices on the auction sites never seemed appropriate to what their real worth is.  And it took a while, but my persistence paid off. Found one of these sitting in a gun store on the East Coast. Priced cheaper than a new Glock.  This video is just a …

They Won’t Stop

It never stops. Even one more regulation is just added on top of 90 years of “It’s just”.  The biggest mistake that was ever made in protecting the modern semi-auto AR-15 is the banning of new machine guns. Why? Something has to be #1. And once you eliminate that, the previous #2 becomes the new #1 to be targeted. You …

Dan Wesson Pistol Pack

On pod a few weeks ago, Freeze was discussing the CZ purchase of Colt firearms. On change he suggested that took all of us off-guard is the suggestion that CZ make a Colt Python Pistol Pack. Much like the Dan Wesson version.  I don’t know how feasible it is considering the need for feeler gauges and how things work with …

2015 Porsche Carrera S

So…many of you probably don’t know this, but I am kind of a low-key car guy. What I mean by that is I like cars. I pay attention to cars. But my interest in cars doesn’t rise to the level of my firearms involvement.  I guess putting that another way, if I was forced to choose between one or the …

Beretta 92X Performance First Shots

Ok. First shots with the 92x are in the can. Shoots very well. VERY. I didn’t include pics of the paper groups. But it’s 5 rounds holes in holes standing. For me, that’s as good as it gets.  Yes, some will perceive the gun as heavy, but that’s relative. Anyone who carries a full sized service pistol with 17 rounds …

Rant – Stop Blaming The Ammo Supply

I have noticed all during the pandemic that people blame the current ammo supply situation for their lack of training. I have bit my tongue long enough. It’s bullshit.   Marky John1911.com “Shooting Guns & Having Fun”

M16A1 Magazines

Don’t see these everyday. At least I don’t. Looks to me like original M16A1 style magazines.  I think? Maybe? Possibly? What say you? I have no idea if these are good prices or not? But I can’t help but wonder if one day these prices will go sky-high in value like the original Vietnam era M16A1 rifles have? Back in …

RDS Offset Is Real

See these pics? They are of bullets crashing into the tops of VTAC barricades. And you want to know who is responsible?  Me. Sucks to write that. But this is my personal attempt to learn through failure. And highlighting my failure, with you the reader, is a way to reenforce that lesson so it sticks.  So what happened? Simple. User …

Beretta 92X Performance Overview

So yes we finally scored one. The new cocked-n-locked Beretta 92 that was all the rage at SHOT a while back.  Lots of really neat touches on this example. The maturity of the 92 design shows through here. If you are a Beretta guy, I suspect you will love it. If you are a 1911 guy, I suspect you will …
