Civil War in America…Again?!

Apr 20th, 2013 | By

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 […]



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 […]

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.

Jun 1st, 2012 | By

Most everyone has a favorite storyteller or someone about whom the stories are always worth listening.  In my circle of friends, there is one man about whom more stories have been told than any other.   My friend is a retired Special Forces soldier and the story in question took place while his “A” team was […]



“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 […]



WE CAN ALL USE SOME INSPIRATION

May 3rd, 2012 | By

No man is an island and we all need inspiration time to time. If you can pull your head out of your iPhone or laptop long enough you just might be amazed at what’s going on in the world around you. A couple of weeks ago I received an email from a fan of the TV […]



THE WARRIOR DEFINED

Apr 24th, 2012 | By

An overused and most often misunderstood word, the true definition of what it means to be a warrior or the warrior mindset eludes most people.  Humans have a natural tendency to define all things down to the simplest most easily digestible level.  Deep thought requires effort and effort is as foreign to many citizens as […]
