Humdrum should never describe our shooting range experience. Pack up the guns and ammo, go to the range, shoot at a paper target, reload, repeat. It takes a disciplined person to do this on a regular basis, but if you’ll add in a little “fun factor”, you might find that range drills can be both […]

Since early gun-making days, gun owners have been trying to find ways to protect their firearms from weather and wear, particularly iron and steel parts. The purpose of various gun finishes was primarily to provide some type of coating that would protect the outer layer from rust and corrosion. I recently spoke with a local […]
The 1911 was designed by John Browning in 1911. Of course, that’s where the name originated. It’s a single-action pistol that uses a firing pin.

In my younger years, I couldn’t wait for winter’s arrival. The first big snowfall meant making snow forts, sledding, or even hitting the ski slopes. As I’ve aged, I don’t enjoy the cold season quite as much. Maybe it’s that every ache and pain is more noticeable with frigid temperatures, or maybe I just don’t […]
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 […]
Getting ready for a trip to the shooting range means preparing ahead of time. As with any other adventure, packing the right necessities ensures the day will flow more smoothly. Some items are obvious – ammunition, eye and ear protection, a first aid kit, and of course, your handguns. Other items are less common, yet […]
