As if the terrorist attack this week was not bad enough, there’s a distinct possibility that there could be a civil war in the United States within the next three to four years, hinted at only by inflammatory and ignorant statements by ESQUIRE staffer, Linda Ginsburg: “I’ll bet good money it’s a right-wing nutjob. Today […]

Venezuela and the Future of South America

Mar 8th, 2013 | By

The 56th Venezuelan president, Hugo Chavez, always had a very strong lace with the communist ideals, and also, expansionism. A kind of jester, with a very provocative position against the USA and the general capitalism, he showed himself to be a very controversial and contradictory man, with ideas of dictatorship like that of Stalin. Chavez […]

When the Governor Comes Knocking: S&W Governor [PRODUCT REVIEW/TV]

Dec 20th, 2012 | By

  It’s two in the morning. It’s dark. Your dog, sleeping peacefully at the foot of your bed when you turned out your side lamp, rustles you awake with a shake of its head and a flapping of its ears. He’s not barking, but he’s sniffing at the closed door of your bedroom. You grab […]

Of all the gunslingers of the American West, none has such cross-cultural, historical recognition as a Wild Bill Hickok. Almost always depicted in photos with his favorite pair of cap and ball Colt 1851 .36 caliber Navy Model revolvers, the question was whether he drew them simultaneously, or used the second pistol sequentially, as he ran […]

Dec 20th, 2012 | By

  When the chips are down, I mean really down, there’s something reassuring to have squad armed with a stack of LAWs and collection of M18A1 Claymores. In a pinch, you can shake the confidence of a major force of aggressors. A couple LAWs into the center and they scatter. They regroup and you lead them […]

THE OTHER BAD GUY: A More Sinister Threat

May 12th, 2012 | By
