Gold Isn’t the Only Precious Soft Metal…

Apr 25th, 2013 | By

First there’s the conspiracy theory: The US Government is buying out all available ammunition, and telling the manufacturers to not sell anymore ammo to the civilian populace—In other words, the US Government is getting ready for a major, economic and societal shift that will result in all out Civil War, and as many know, those […]



Searching for Judas: The peril of being in the Gun Business today

Jan 30th, 2013 | By

As we all should be aware of, the Information Super-Highway is most certainly a double-edged sword.  Valuable information that can be of benefit to all people is disseminated immediately.  Genuine news stories, no pap, are available to anyone with a mobile device.  You don’t need to wait for a newspaper or magazine any longer.  The […]



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 […]



Wild Bill Hickok for the Modern Age

Dec 20th, 2012 | By

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 […]



BLACKHAWK!’s New Versa-Harness

Nov 29th, 2012 | By

With a design department in just about every tactical equipment manufacturing seemingly on amphetamines, cranking out a new product just as seemingly every day, it takes some effort to quickly recognize an  item that stands above others. The Versa-Harness to be released this coming January at Shotshow, from BLACKHAWK!, is a perfect example of outstanding! HISTORY […]



Benelli’s M4 Matches Well With the PDX1 Defender

Nov 28th, 2012 | By

Synonymous with the USMC since 1998, the Benelli M4 has been a true workhorse for close-quarter and short range combat. Its reputation has been built on its durability, accuracy, and how well it cycles a variety of rounds, from low-power non-lethal cartridges, such as those sending rubber bullet and rubber buckshot, all the way up to […]



“BUNKER” IS PREPPER FOR “COFFIN”

May 5th, 2012 | By

If one more prepper on the Discovery Channel DOOMSDAY BUNKERS and National Geographic DOOMSDAY PREPPERS lauds and pines on and on about bunkers, or speaks glowingly of a new bunker purchase and installation, I’m going to SCREAM! What is it with this bunker mentality? Every bunker that I’ve seen makes a great root cellar, and […]



The Super Ego, or Why Men are Afraid to Train

Feb 23rd, 2012 | By

No, I’m not a psychologist; I didn’t even stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night. Nonetheless, I’ve been around long enough to know that men have an innate belief, even if subconsciously, that the mere possession of testicles makes them skilled drivers, lovers, and shooters. From a coldly analytical perspective we know that this […]



“We’ve Always Done it That Way.” And Other Lame Excuses.

Oct 20th, 2011 | By

    “WELL, WE’VE ALWAYS DONE IT LIKE THAT.”  If I hear that excuse one more time I think my head might explode.  I’ve been in the shooting business for more than two decades now as a student and instructor in the U.S. Marine Corps and as a police officer.    No one starts out as the […]



STUDENT OF THE GUN: VOL.1 CONCEALED CARRY BASICS with Paul Markel

Oct 13th, 2011 | By

Teaching is a hard job. Effectively teaching someone how and when to shoot is one of the hardest. That’s just in a person-person scenario. With the advent of video technology, the question of whether the information is not only getting across, but being also absorbed, becomes a really big question. When I received a review […]
