The destruction a fire or disaster brings to a family’s hopes and dreams is devastating. The lucky ones escape a fire uninjured, only to find all their possessions have been destroyed. They cannot replace their many years of sacrifice and struggle to regain all that was lost. A little comfort in their time of need […]

We love this explanation from @erodger about what got her into fly fishing... if you have a minute, give it a read. ❤️ ・・・ October, 2016 was the first time I ever touched a fly rod. It wasn’t my Dad, a boyfriend, a social media post, or any one else that got me interested in trying it. The idea came to me as I was reminiscing about some of my happiest moments as a little girl. I thought about the hours that my 3 sisters and I would spend playing in a brook by my parents house. We would try and catch brook trout and then make houses for them in the water by building dams with rocks (which never seemed to work🤔🤷🏻♀️). The hours spent doing that completely captivated my mind and brought me so much joy. I loved being in nature, playing in the water, searching for fish, and figuring out ways to actually catch them. I believe we all need to spend more time reliving those moments that brought us so much joy as kids. After all, we are all still kids at heart💞 #uwotfsmiles

The trend of home concealment furniture has picked up speed recently, especially with crime being on the increase. Multitudes of firearms-related conventions, trade shows and expos across the country are featuring these products. It’s an interesting concept – hiding firearms in plain sight where no one would bat an eye at it being anything other […]

The holiday season is such a wonderful time of year; for the most part people are in good spirits, more generous, and kind to one-another. Unfortunately, there are people who prey on that kindness and want to take advantage of the generosity that comes with the holiday season. This is the time of year when […]

I’d lost the battle. It was a valiant effort (if squinty eyes and cocked head are valiant), but Mother Nature won; I needed reading glasses. I probably owe legions of students an apology too, because for years, when someone would bemoan a “fuzzy front sight” or show up to shoot with upside-down cheaters perched on […]
Hunting sheep is known to be challenging, no matter where you are hunting. Sheep travel in herds and have great eyesight. These 2 factors, combined, make hunting this species extremely challenging.

As some of you may know, we moved our offices earlier this month. The move was very short and took place within the same location at Tarpon Point Marina, but it was a move nonetheless.
