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 […]

The Nissan Xterra – A Symbolic Step

The Nissan Xterra – A Symbolic Step

The STi is gone. Evaporated into misty vapor and absorbed into the recesses of my mind, reserved only for the most powerful of life lessons. My experience with it taught me more than I would care to try to articulate, but thankfully, it’s GONE. In it’s place, now sits a […]

Turning A Page – Out With the Old, In With the New

Turning A Page – Out With the Old, In With the New

Many things have ramped up and changed in life of late; far too much to sum up in a single post that can entertain a reader, so here I will only focus on the material… Specifically cars. The last time I wrote about my Subaru STi, things were looking up. […]

Star Wars Episode 1 3D – The Midnight Premier

Star Wars Episode 1 3D – The Midnight Premier

Juice boxes, carrots, stuffed animals, and Star Wars. That pretty well sums up my childhood. I am blessed to have grown up in a house where my dad appreciated the classics from The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, to Lawrence of Arabia, to the original Star Wars trilogy. Obviously […]

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

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 […]

The Nissan Leaf – First Drive

The Nissan Leaf – First Drive

Friday, October 21st, was the grand opening of Milford Nissan. I was in attendance primarily to film with the Canon 5DMkII and Stedicam that we have at work. Also in attendance was a new Nissan Leaf from corporate, which was there for prospective customers and local business owners to try […]

What Your Car Says About You

What Your Car Says About You

Disclaimer: This article is intended to be humorous. The opinions and views portrayed are not necessarily my own and, frankly, should be viewed as offensive. This is for your entertainment only. Being rather extreme about my opinions of cars and people, I have come to notice that a surprising number […]

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 […]

Tires – The Link Between You and The Road

It’s funny at times how little people seems to consciously understand about their car and what about it is important. Fancy features in the cabin keep you cool in the summer, warm in the winter, and comfortable and entertained on your long journeys. Your engine, and its many associated components, […]

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 […]

2005 Subaru STi – It Lives Again…

After my 2005 Subaru STi’s engine failure in October 2010, the car limped around under 3,000RPM for three more months, before it came off the road at the end of December. The motor swap was expected to be a relatively simple matter of pulling it from the car, replacing the […]

All Wheel Drive. It’s All You Need!

Lets start with Front Wheel Drive (FWD), the poster child for uselessness. In terms of everyday practicality and useability in adverse weather conditions, it could be worse, but it’s not even close to the best.
