This action-packed, 3-day expo consisted of numerous seminars, a live-fire shooting range and more than 100 vendors with all types of products for the American gun owner. Gear Up is sponsored by Springfield […]
Moms worry. We worry if our kids are with us or without us. Worries about firearms, regardless of whether we own any, are similar to worries any parent has when raising children in a world full of powerful tools – from cars to bikes to power tools. It is possible to raise children to respect […]

Having a bit of a shoe and boot obsession, I keep a variety to choose from for every activity or occasion. But, there is always that one pair of go-to boots that I can make work for everything: the Danner Women’s Jag Boot. The Jag was originally introduced in the 1980, then retired and brought […]

With 800+ vendors and more than 15 acres of guns and gear, there was plenty to see. And wait until you find out all the other interesting items I found … but I will […]
What a crazy last few days it has been keeping up with orders and now we have been honored in Outdoor Canada Magazine as 2nd on the list for Mother’s Day ideas.

I used to think all I needed to look for in a range bag were a few compartments, strong zippers and a heavy-weight shoulder strap. That is until I tried Gun Tote’n Mamas (GTM) Organized Rolling Range Bag. Wow, not all range bags are created equal. Sponsored by Gun Tote’n Mamas First, I must admit […]
By the time we reached Colorado for the last piece in our Grand Slam attempt for wild turkeys last year, Jessica Kallam and I felt defeated. We’d suffered through sweat-lodge blinds in Florida for days on end, with her never seeing a bird, and me taking a shot (and missing) at a turkey that was […]

The thought of fighting big fish from a kayak is enough to raise the pulse of any angler. However, you should never pick such a fight without a battle plan, especially when your battleground is not open terrain because any hooked fish will run for cover. Fishing from a boat or land provides fairly solid […]

Krav Maga (pronounced “krahv mahGAH”) is a form of training that cuts out extra nonsensical teaching methods, to make it more of a strictly street violence form of self-defense. It doesn’t include any type of spiritual or meditative elements. It teaches students to respond to real life-or-death situations. Learning how to handle circumstances in which […]
Two years ago when I competed at the World Action Pistol Championship in New Zealand, I figured it might be my final time participating on the world stage.

If you follow some of my wild game concoctions on social media, you know I don’t always post the recipes on the website. Sometimes I just want to share different ways to prepare wild game using the basic staples that most of us have in the refrigerator. And most of the time I don’t even […]
