48 Hours

It’s less than 48-hours before the election and I remain cautiously optimistic. My bet is that we will weather the next 30-days reasonably well. And, by that I mean with bumps and bruises, but not any permanent damage. However, as is my usual practice, I will be hedging that bet and remaining as prepared as [...]

Hot War?

“Who wishes to fight must first count the cost.” - Sun Tzu As the nation grinds through it’s 3rd month of violent protests and civil unrest, many are left wondering when it will turn hot, meaning when will it go from fists, rocks, and arson, to guns.

Tick-Tock

6-months ago our nation was enjoying the best economy in its history. 3-months ago we were being played by China, the WHO, the CDC, and leftist governors and mayors into destroying that economy. Two weeks ago, every major city experienced rioting, looting, and general civil unrest. Again, leftist mayors and governors did little to stop [...]

It's their answer to the Aimpoint style of micro red dot optics. The first thing you notice is its large objective lens, and that [...]

Factory Ammunition

"Maybe it’ll just be confiscation." - IL State Rep Julie Morrison, June 11, 2019, in regard to banning auto loading firearms. Our recommendation to new students is to attend class with American-made factory ammunition. Cheap foreign manufactured, and especially reloaded ("handloaded"), ammunition generally proves less than reliable. At best, ammunition which fails to feed, fire, [...]

Gun Show Treachery

"What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly" - Thomas Paine   In the states where legal, private sales of firearms are common place at gun shows. However, we all take our chances, as attempting any comprehensive inspections on potential purchases is all but impossible. Individual sellers are not interested in letting strangers take [...]
