The Marine’s 1911

The Marine’s 1911

According to the Military Times, the US Marines are looking to officially pick up an off the shelf 1911 for it’s MARSOC program. The choice is between the Colt Rail Gun and the Springfield MC Operator. Between the two, I’d pick the Springfield in a heartbeat.  Springfield has shown consistent quality control and a commitment […]

Marlin Update

Marlin Update

Just a quick update on my Marlin 1895GBL, .45-70.  To recap, I bought one, and it was faulty.  The stock was loose and the action was locking up.  I only got a half a box of rounds through it before I had to send it in to Marlin for repair. It came back from Marlin […]

Crusader & Lucid, one scary accurate combination

Crusader Weaponry has teamed up with Lucid to provide a very good optical gunsight for our rifles.  When I first tested the Lucid HD7, it impressed the hell out of me.  It was clear, solid, and did everything I wanted an optic to do.  In fact, it did better than I had hoped.  I put […]

Glock vs the 911

Glock vs the 911

Most guys are comparing the Glock to the 1911.  I’m going to compare it to the 911… For the last 40 years Porsche has been remaking the same design and calling it brand new, and the fans have been lapping it up and eagerly await the next version. Those on the outside look at it […]

Benelli M4.

Benelli M4.

I didn’t really understand the desire to own an M4.  The magazine was limited and it was just overpriced.  Then we got in the new civilian M4 H2O. It’s even more expensive. But this time there is a difference. Now, its worth every penny. You get the full capacity.  The anti corrosion coating.  And the […]

Leave our Military Alone

Leave our Military Alone

First it was Michelle Obama, with a captive audience of US Soldiers basically telling them that they are all fat and need to eat salads. “Don’t worry, you’ll be a veggie guy soon.” She quipped. What?  They are our Warriors.  They need MEAT… They need PROTEIN.  Forget the Salads unless they ask for it and give […]

Perspective

Perspective

This last 48 hours has really given me a new perspective on what is important in life. One of my sons, my 12 year old, came down with Croup… an uncontrolled coughing thing. This triggered multiple Asthma attacks. No sleep for the last 2 nights. No rest at all. Multiple trips to the ER where […]

We didn’t get picked

We didn’t get picked

Looks like RAW TV picked another group of people to do the show. Let me back up. RAW TV is the company that did GOLD RUSH ALASKA for the Discovery Channel. They are looking at doing another show and we were in the top 6, but didn’t make the cut. This was going to be […]

The Catholic Vote

The Catholic Vote

Every time I turn on a Talk Radio station, I’m hearing about Obama Administrations SNAFU with the Catholics. You’ve all heard of this already, I’m sure, so I’m not going to rehash it. But basically the Obamistration is telling the Catholic Church that they must go against their faith and do something they believe to […]
