Zero Distance

Zero Distance

I think I am going to Re-Zero all of my Long Range Arms for 300 Yards. Take your favorite Killing Guns, get out your favorite Ballistic Calculator and really look at your Trajectories. Between your 0 yard and your normal 100 or 200 yard zero range, look at the highest point in the arc to […]

The One Rifle.

The One Rifle.

On YouTube I watched a video by a fellow named James Yeager about how there is no such thing as One Rifle for everything.  He calls it a myth.  I call Bullshit on that. History is full of instances where a man has just one rifle and did everything with it, just fine.  Survived to […]

I like my AR again.

I like my AR again.

My AR has been bugging the hell out of me.  The thing was heavy as hell.  No, seriously, we’re talking at AR-15 Carbine that weighed more than a Springfield M1A National Match or a SOCOM II.  It just weighed a friggen ton. Here’s what it looks like now. The parts I took off were really […]

Glocks and AK’s.

Glocks and AK’s.

Have to say, the guns I go to the most are Glocks, AK’s, and 870’s. The 23 in .40, remains my most favored handgun for CCW.  The  model 20, in 10mm is coming in second.  The more I use the Glocks… the more I like them.  Not just an appreciation for the function… but liking […]

Bi-polar guns

Bi-polar guns

Guys, don’t let your guns get bi-polar… Your AR doesn’t need everything out of the MAKO and Blackhawk catalogues to be cool or effective. Here is a rule of thumb for you.  If you have a VFG or an AFG on your rifle, you don’t need a bi-pod.  The reverse is also true.  If you […]

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 […]

This is why I love the .17HMR

This is why I love the .17HMR

Check this out.  Crazy power from such a tiny little round.  

Testing the Broadsword rifle

Testing the Broadsword rifle

Heaven Help Me.

Heaven Help Me.

In a moment of weakness… I picked up a Weaver Rail that will fit nicely on my Rossi M-92. What evilness have I brought into my home?  I am ashamed.  Okay… I’ll return it to normal sooner than I thought.   I still might experiment with an optic on it… just so I can get a […]

Ruger’s New Guns.

Ruger’s New Guns.

Ruger has announced a couple new guns.  Let’s take a look at them. The new “All American Rifle”.  Link Here.  I don’t have anything good to say about this one.  Congratulations Ruger, you just made a Savage Axis.  Bravo.  But 10 bucks says the Savage has the better barrel.  Hopefully the stock is more rigid… more […]
