Inova T1 Flashlight (and How to Gunfight with It)

From checking out what just went ‘ribbit‘ under-foot in the yard, to illuminating a gunfight, flashlights can come in handy almost every single day of anyone’s life. Whether you’re an outdoorsman or a homebody, work a blue collar job or a white collar job, we would all take advantage of […]

What is the Best Home Defense Weapon?

What is the Best Home Defense Weapon?

You just woke up at 3am to the sound of a loud thud, and no, it wasn’t the dog knocking a plant over. Your home is being invaded by a violent criminal and he’s done this before. Unlikely scenario you say? Lets look at a few numbers… 1,030,000… that’s the […]

Drawing from Concealed Carry

Drawing from Concealed Carry

Lets put the cards on the table… If you’re getting into defensive shooting, concealed carry or, god forbid, you’re an old school shooter willing to learn up-to-date Modern Technique, this should be helpful. The real reason I’m writing this however, is just because I think I’m cool and I like […]

Too Much Range Safety

Too Much Range Safety

From the first .22 caliber bullet that I ever launched from a gun (a Ruger 10/22), I’ve never been afraid of firearms. Even when, on that same day, I tried out a .45 pistol, a 12 gauge shotgun, and an M1 Garand, the feeling was profound respect… never fear. Interestingly […]

A Reasonable Look at Assault Weapons

A Reasonable Look at Assault Weapons

This was originally written by Darryl Bolke and I found it on the Facebook page of James Yeager, of Tactical Response. These words are not mine, but they are well put together and make an arguement that any reasonable, thoughtful person should be able to consider. I’m not saying this […]

Picking Out a Different One – Glock ??

Picking Out a Different One – Glock ??

I’ve moved to New Hampshire and become a free man. No more stringent MA gun laws or licensing requirements. No more feeling infected by the majority of liberal sheeple. All I now needed to purchase my first firearm was a New Hampshire driver’s license—and I didn’t even have to wait […]

Massachusetts Firearm Licensing

Massachusetts Firearm Licensing

As if Massachusetts didn’t already make it a huge pain in everyone’s ass to own firearms, things have just become more complicated for me… I recently called the Massachusetts Firearms School (where I took my Firearm Safety Course) to get some advice on what to write on my Class A-LTC […]

Bug Out Bag – The Start

Bug Out Bag – The Start

If you keep up with my blog at all, you surely know that I subscribe to a mentality of being prepared for anything and everything I can be, regardless of how unlikely, and that my level of preparedness is limited only by my financial means. Finally, months after I decided […]

Picking Out The One

Picking Out The One

After numerous outings to my shooting range NH, over the last few months, I’ve been giving more and more thought to what pistol I will choose for concealed carry when I get my Class A LTC. Now I’m getting ready to submit my application, and my co-workers – who I […]

The Big Shoot – 31 Guns, 3600 Rounds, $3331

The Big Shoot – 31 Guns, 3600 Rounds, $3331

Most everyone who knows me, knows that I have but three passions in life that can be easily defined. Cars, currency, and firearms. My most recent outing to Manchester Firing Line ran rather heavily in the currency and firearm departments…

The Gun Totin’ Liberals Do Thanksgiving

If you keep up with my blog you are no doubt aware that I am an avid firearm enthusiast and soon-to-be owner. What you might not know is that I come from a family that is quite the opposite. When I was young I had to fight a year long […]

First-Time Shooters, Female Shooters, and a Birthday Shooter

First-Time Shooters, Female Shooters, and a Birthday Shooter

About a week ago, my good friend Andrew turned 23. A week prior to his birthday, our friend and mentor, Tim, and I decided to come up with a surprise birthday event of some kind for Andrew. We decided right off the bat to do it the week after his […]

Firearms – Graduating from Novice to Intermediate

After a decade of interest in firearms I finally acquired enough knowledge and experience to graduate from being a novice shooter, to one of intermediate experience and advanced knowledge. I had owned dozens of airsoft guns with the mindset that they were more replica firearms than toys. I had been […]

Shooting – What Could Be Better?

Firearms have been a growing and evolving interest of mine since I was about 7 years old. One of my most distant memories is actually of sitting at Joan and Ed’s Deli Restaurant in Natick, where they would give kids a box of crayons and a paper place mat that […]

Are You Ready? – Preparedness

Emergencies come in all forms and can happen at any time. Many people have a single type of emergency in mind when they think of a home emergency. For some, it may be a home fire, a gas leak, or maybe a natural disaster like a tornado. For others, it […]

Kill or Be Killed – Preparedness

In a number of states across the country, particularly Massachusetts, weapons are considered scary and evil. Guns are thought of solely as murder machines and their owners are treated like dangerous criminals, even when their intentions and practices are completely innocent. Society as a whole is comprised of pathetic people, […]
