What? Huh? Say Again?

What? Huh? Say Again?

At the shop I work at, we wear 2-Way Radios and use ear pieces. This made apparent a problem was aware of, but didn’t know just how much of a problem. If I put the earpiece in my right ear, I can turn up the volume and it’s just fine. If I put my earpiece […]

The Amish Slaying

The Amish Slaying

It turns out the Amish Girl was killed by a horrible incident of negligence.  Pretty much it was an accident, but one based on a negligent action.   This is a horrible thing, but the man never intended to kill the girl.  I’m sure that gives comfort to the family of the young woman slain […]

Some guys shouldn’t have guns.

Some guys shouldn’t have guns.

A friend of mine has a little brother who was is interested in shooting so he was brought along for enjoyment and learning… Little Brother is not so Little.  He’s pretty much a grown adult.  He just didn’t learn anything and almost killed someone because of it. This wasn’t an Accident.  This was his Negligence. Pure […]

Buckethead

Buckethead

So I may need a new helmet now.  I took a 5 gallon bucket to the face at 75MPH.  It almost took me off my bike.  I was/am unhurt.  It blew out of the back of a truck and nailed me.  It happened so fast, I didn’t see it coming.  If I had got a […]

The most dangerous road in Utah

The most dangerous road in Utah

Congratulations to UDOT for creating the most dangerous road that I have ever ridden on.  Highway 40, going through Strawberry.  A few weeks ago I rode through and watched a couple on a motorcycle go down.  That was due to the uneven layering of the road surface, and they way that UDOT directed traffic through […]

How to Not Shoot Yourself.  By Daniel Shaw

Guest post:  How to Not Shoot Yourself.  By Daniel Shaw  Shooters who subscribe to the Ogre’s blog or social networking sites were likely to have seen, in late June, the YouTube video of a gentleman who was doing some training that resulted in him shooting himself in the leg. From his language and the way […]

Novice Shooters and Big Guns

Novice Shooters and Big Guns

We see many videos like this on YouTube.  Here’s another one.   The people on this range are very lucky. Someone could have killed right there. Having this happen with a revolver is unusual. Granted. But there was a case years ago in Virginia where the novice shooter was trying a Desert Eagle and the […]

Beware the Serpa

Beware the Serpa

I used to be a fan of the Serpa holster. However, the more and more I used them the more problems I had. I don’t recommend them to anyone and suggest just about anything else over the Serpa. A brown paper sack is preferable in my opinion. Problems I’ve personally seen: 1. Failure to depress […]

The .50 cal Ricochet to the head video

You guys have all seen the video before… I’m getting a lot of messages about it on facebook and youtube and such for some reason.  I guess it gone around the forums again. Okay, it’s an Armalite AR-50. The ammo was South African Mil-Surp. The range was 100 yards. The target plate was only 1/4″ […]
