Complacency + Gun Shopping = This Video

Everyone should be aware of the 4 rules of gun safety, of which I’ll paraphrase here: 1- Treat every weapon as if it were loaded 2- Never point a weapon at something you do not intend to destroy 3- Never place your finger on the trigger until you are ready to engage 4- Know your …

Guns Staged / Hidden Around The House?

I recently had a conversation with a good friend who just purchased a shotgun for home defense.  On my recommendation he bought a Mossberg 500 with full stock and full length shell tube for around $300 from Dick’s Sporting Goods.  I have this particular shotgun and although I have modified mine quite a bit, I …

Reloading: Production vs Precision

There is great satisfaction to be had when pulling the trigger and sending forth a projectile from the barrel of a gun, especially when one goes through the trouble to produce that cartridge.  Assembling the projectile, casing, powder and primer…not to mention all of the prep and research involved before ever stepping foot on the …

Glock Malfunctions

I set out yesterday to put in a few hours at my local range, only to be disappointed when my trusted Glock 19 immediately started having malfunctions.  I’d squeeze the trigger and the gun wouldn’t cycle properly, it’s almost as if there were light loads involved which would lead to the next round not getting …

Open Carry: Act Like You’ve Been There

I remember being stationed in Germany, a wide eyed 19 year old who lived in a new country with endless possibilities.  Coming out of high school I was never much of a “party animal” and had mainly stuck to sports, JROTC and work.  Yet there I was in a land where 18 year olds could …

The “Muscle Memory” Shooting Fallacy

Over the last few years I’ve run into guys who advocate muscle memory shooting (or point shooting), and as soon as they do I try to keep from rolling my eyes.  What they claim to be able to do is draw and fire their pistol accurately without using the sights.  Some have told me they …

DIY: Night Sight Installation

Allow me to provide some background before getting into the meat of this post.  I don’t go to the movies that often because I generally despise large crowds and paying ridiculous amounts of money for butter laden popcorn (although it is delicious).  I do make an effort to go when a decent movie comes out, …

Rifle Slings: Practical, Impractical, Obsolete

I suppose rifle slings are like concealed carry pistol calibers, everyone has their favorite selection and can justify their choice in at least 3 paragraphs.  Just like pistol calibers (and probably even more so) the choices in rifle slings are far and wide, with so many configurations/materials/attachment points you can usually walk through 3 or …

So you want a MAN’s gun?

If you’ve been following this blog for more than a month you’ll know that I’m a Glock “fanboy.”  I have makes and models of other pistols but love my Glocks.  My wife and I both carry Glocks as our primary CCW platform and I’d estimate that I spend 90% of my time on the range …

Guns: Now Is The Time To Buy!

I usually check Armslist.com a few times a week, just to see if there are any guns on there which interest me.  Constantly checking the site and going through pages of rifle, pistol and ammunition ads have allowed me to monitor available in inventory as well as pricing.  I’ve come to the following conclusion: If …

Home Defense Shotgun Update

Some recent updates on my Mossberg Home Defense Shotty.  If you watched the video I produced you’ll remember that the ATI Components fit awesome with the exception of the new forend (not compatible with my specific model).  I wanted to mount my Streamlight via the ATI rail system which came with their forend but instead …

3D Printing, Gun Building Parties Are Legal Alternatives For Enthusiasts

By Zach Hunters and other firearms enthusiasts have been anxiously watching federal regulators’ every move when it comes to potential new gun control measures. Though Congress defeated a bill in April that would have required more extensive background checks on all firearms purchases, the debate is far from over. The White House, in early June, …

Realistic goals when training your family to shoot

I love to shoot and I don’t mind practicing so that I can get better.  I actually went shooting a few days ago and noticed my reloads were not as efficient as they should be.  So before going out to the range again I’ve decided to slightly adjust a few techniques, go through several hundred …
