My friend Brad at Challenge Targets is giving away one of his neatest targets, a stake clanger. As the picture below shows, it’s very simple and robust. Takes about a minute to assemble, and only a few seconds to install … Continue reading
Let’s say you are using a 1-6x scope set to 6x when you suddenly need to make a precise shot much closer. One way to do that is to turn the rifle 45* (or some lesser angle if you have … Continue reading
This illustrates the utility of short, handy PIV variant. With the scope set at 3.5x, off-hand snapshots are possible. That would be rather harder with the longer bull barrels typical of longer military sniper rifles. At typical police sniper ranges under … Continue reading
Does your hat brim keep your glasses clear enough to see? Is your scope waterproof and rust-resistant enough to function the day after the rain? Can you move with full loadout while soaked? Do your soles provide a sure footing? … Continue reading
When the cost of guns increases, buy ammo. When ammo is too expensive, buy training. When you can’t afford training, invest in practice. If you can’t afford range time, have no ammo, practice trigger control and getting into firing positions. … Continue reading
Father with Marlin 795LTR (Appleseed model) carbine. Daughter with Cavalry SX410 shotgun.
Three years ago, I took this photo of 15 year old Rachel. She had fun with the bolt action but had to shoot it from a support due to the stock length and considerable overall heft. Yesterday, I took photos … Continue reading
The term “final protective fire” means the highest priority is given to this request due to the danger of a position being overrun. For the guy in the trenches, that means firing as fast as possible to break up a … Continue reading
Fast-forward this video to about 10:50 mark to hear an anti complain about this image of Lori. They aren’t fond of Chelsie, either. The young woman in the photo was 16 at the time.
Two grocery bags ware put on a stick and rotated freely in the wind. As a result, they got hit from all sides with several .22 and .32 pistols. Revolvers didn’t work out — double action triggers were too heavy … Continue reading
Later this week, I will be instructing a friend in the use of handguns. She is over 60, has small arthritic hands and has never used a firearm before. She’s taking her required carry course over the weekend. Her loving … Continue reading
My friend Brad is running a sweepstakes for a reactive steel target system. The stands can be adjusted to fall from a single shot or require multiple hits. “Live” area can also be adjusted by varying the plate size and … Continue reading
I don’t actually agree with that view. A 4MOA AK clone is plenty useful for its intended purpose. But given that we the people are far behind the most probable enemy in firepower, we have two main options. The first … Continue reading
Suppressed SU22 is light enough and quiet enough for a comfortable social outing in the woods of Tennessee. Everyone shot suppressed that day, so the ear plugs aren’t in evidence.
JPFO makes this target available for free download. New Jersey makes shooting at it illegal. Looks like a ready-made First Amendment legal challenge to me. Especially with the text removed, it becomes a very pure example of recognized evil — … Continue reading

1. Mass murderers who plan on killing themselves after the spree are not deterred by posthumous legal penalties. Really. Trying to disarm everyone who can theoretically snap is impossible — witness the Russian cops doing mass shootings against the disarmed … Continue reading
Self-Diagnostic for Defensive Rifleman Three rounds of ammunition, two dimes’ worth of office supplies and five minutes could tell you much about your degree of readiness.
Ever wondered how to fight off a zombie stripper? Wonder no more!
Grace knows both jiu-jitsu and teppu-jitsu. The rifle is a Crickett with 4x scope.
