Thu, 08/30/2018 - 08:06

So there we are. Your total urban defense ammo loadout by my calculation costs you just over $1,200 dollars. If you happen to have more on hand, awesome. But between now and when you need it, I strongly recommend you use some of that extra ammo to hone your skills.

Wed, 08/29/2018 - 11:19

Earlier this year financial analysts hoped Dick’s Sporting Goods could continue to post strong sales numbers even after imposing a slate of anti-gun policies. Today that projection sounds more like wishful thinking than anything else.

First Deer of the Year

Tue, 08/28/2018 - 13:22

On August 11 a friend of mine from back East texted me and I responded that I was deer hunting. “Boddington,” he came back, “it’s August…around here we call that poaching!” On the surface, it seems crazy. Here on the Central Coast, August temperatures soar above 100 degrees and wildfires are headline news. Even so, it’s deer season! The “coast zone” rifle deer season opens the second Saturday in August. This year opening day was the 11th; it could open as early as August 8…but never later than the 14th. This is the earliest rifle deer season in the Lower 48!

What I love & Hate About Crimson Trace Lasergrips

Tue, 08/28/2018 - 07:25

One of my favorite firearms innovations of the last decade or so has been the swift rise of aftermarket laser aiming systems for handguns. Remember when adding a laser to your handgun meant installing something that looked like a small flashlight onto your gun’s tactical rail with a coiled cord attached to an activation switch? […]

9mm Micro Shootout – Sig P365 vs. Glock 43 vs. S&W Shield

Sat, 08/25/2018 - 07:41

Sig has made the leap into the deep end of the pool to compete with the well-established pillars of the micro market, the Smith & Wesson Shield, and the Glock 43 9mms. It certainly looked and felt good, and it held more bullets than its rival competitors, but looks are sometimes deceiving. The true test is when you put a product side by side with its competitors and see how they stack up. So after a not so patient wait to get the newly popular P365 its time to get down to the range, scales and numbers to see how it does.

AAC Ti-Raid Suppressor Review

Sat, 08/25/2018 - 05:24

Available in a direct thread or QC set up, we opted to test the direct thread. The can features a completely toolless takedown, though it has wrench flats on the cap. Not that any of us would ever neglect maintenance so long as to need those. The user serviceable part of this cannot be overstated.

Finding Your Dominant Eye

Sat, 08/25/2018 - 00:46

Although it is possible to shoot with one eye closed it is not the most effective way to shoot a shotgun at moving targets. Starting to shoot a shotgun with one eye is the biggest mistake that anyone who wants to shoot or hunt effectively can do. I personally struggled with this as a young shooter, shooting almost my first two years closing one eye. When my coach decided to switch me over to two eyes it was the most frustrating thing I have ever experienced.
