18 Millimeters of Awesome: Shotguns for Home Defense and Everything Else

Fri, 05/25/2018 - 16:39

by Mark Miller I have been to some bad places around the world and have seen bad things happen. When I lived on the Gulf Coast, I went through the aftermath of several major hurricanes. I now live in a rural area near a volcano and maintain a wide selection of weapons. When I hear […]

Cimarron 1876 Centennial “Tom Horn” Signature Rifle – Review

Fri, 05/25/2018 - 16:01

When the 1873 came out it was a paradigm shift. A repeating rifle that was as reliable and capable as it was practical. However, it was still a pistol caliber carbine. For real rifle work, you had to go to something like an 1869 Sharps, a Ballard Perfection rifle, or a Remington Rolling Block. That's what buffalo hunters used. What these long range, big game guns had in common was that they were all single shot firearms. The Winchester Model 1876 changed that forever.

Over Yonder: The Ins and Outs of Laser Rangefinders

Fri, 05/25/2018 - 14:56

 In simple terms, the laser rangefinder will emit an infrared beam towards a target while another sensor looks for the reflection coming back.  Once the sensor has detected that reflection it calculates the range based on the time it took to get back to the unit and displays it for the user.

Glock 34 GEN 5 Review – Out Of The Box Battle or Race Gun Ready

Thu, 05/24/2018 - 20:45

Glock has been updating the line up to Generation 5, as seen here on the 17/19 and here on the 19X. We aren’t going to rehash all the changes for the Gen 5 here, but a highlight reel is helpful if you haven’t been paying attention. The accuracy is improved by a factor of half, the new triggers are better, gone are the finger grooves, and there is a right side slide release for the

9mm Rimfire Shotgun – Chiappa Little Badger Review

Thu, 05/24/2018 - 14:17

This week, I've played with a gun that is way outside the norm. From Chiappa, we are looking at what may be the smallest of the Italian shotguns. Ever. When this gun first came up for review, I had no idea what 9mm Flobert was, so don’t feel bad if you have never heard of it either. It is a very common European cartridge but is almost unheard of here in the U.S.A.

It’s Time to Publicly Torture Mass Killers

Thu, 05/24/2018 - 07:04

It’s time we publicly torture mass killers. Let’s pluck out their eyes with hot pincers, splash frothing sulfuric acid on their genitals and, just about the time they’re starting to convalesce, bury them alive in a hill of agitated African army ants.

Medical Training – The Life You Save May be Your Own

Wed, 05/23/2018 - 15:19

It doesn’t matter if you’re out hunting, on the range practicing, or driving down the highway, when chaos strikes, it strikes fast. One missed step along that ridge, a ricocheting bullet off a steel target, a distracted driver, a slip of a blade, and you can find yourself in a life and death situation. Beyond gun safety, first aid training is more useful than any other training you could attend, though most of us put it a ways down the list of our planned training.

Strike First, Strike Hard with the Attleboro Berlin Strike Folding Knife

Wed, 05/23/2018 - 07:38

Meet the Berlin Strike Folder from Attleboro Knives. A gentleman's folder aptly suited for a black tie affair, one in which you may need to free a damsel from restraints. (I'm thinking 007, not "50 Shades of Grey." Sicko.)

CCRKBA: How Come Anti-Gunners Never Blame the Murderer?

Tue, 05/22/2018 - 12:45

“Time after time, with endless fund raising appeals and inflammatory rhetoric, we’ve seen these anti-rights lobbying groups immediately try to shift blame to the NRA, or the Second Amendment, or the firearms industry, or some mythical loophole in the law,” he observed. “But they never seem to point their fingers at the culprit, and we think it’s time for the American public to ask why?”

Vortex Spitfire AR Prism Review

Sat, 05/19/2018 - 17:16

Vortex’s new contender in the 1X arena isn’t even a true vintage style Red-Dot sight at all. It is actually a small one power prismatic scope. It isn’t dependent on shining LEDs, lasers, or fiber optic transmitted light upon a lens to create an aiming point. It has an etched reticle that is present without artificial illumination, though it does have supplemental illumination to aid in low lighting conditions.
