The last thing I saw was a disk of golden sun through a haze of smoke. In the few months I've been here, the sun and duty's risk are the only constants. The last thing I heard was the report of fire. Just one last wild spurring of colors made sound, shaping the hot blind earth into darkness. The last thing I felt was an intake of breath, air drawing in deep. It lays warm in me, then stills. I thought nothing could reach me. I never felt what hit me. I think that was close, surrounded by the savage heat that no longer burns, the fecund odor of sand and earth that reaches not Read More >>

When looking for a handgun, the choice between a revolver or a semi-automatic pistol is one of the most important decisions you need to make. Whichever option you choose, it will come with both advantages and disadvantages. In this guide, I'll explain the pros and cons of revolvers vs pistols to help you make an informed decision. Revolver vs Pistol Many use the term pistol and handgun interchangeably, but the majority of handgun experts make the distinction that pistols are a subset of handguns with an "integral chamber-barrel assembly." Pistols have one (or more) stationary integral Read More >>
You may or may not have heard of New York State Rifle & Pistol Association vs. City of New York. This is a challenge to a New York City regulation that says people with premises licenses for their handguns (which is required to have a pistol in your home or business) may not take their unloaded, inaccessible, and secured pistols anywhere except one of the licensed gun ranges in the city. You may not go to a range outside the city, to your home in upstate New York, to a competition of any sort. You are allowed to take your gun to a gunsmith, but only if you get advance permission from Read More >>
4. A right guaranteed by our founding fathers. This is one of my favorites and you can tell because it’s number four. I love history! But what I’ve found with history is that it changes as society moves forward. The farther away from the event, the more distorted it becomes as it is re-written.

They’re not really needed for food. Not needed for protection as that is what the police are for today. So, why Read More >>
Protecting myself and those I care about is what first interested me about firearms. Given my goal of being more safe in more situations, it'd be ironic—and even stupid—of me to not take gun safety incredibly seriously. Regardless of what led to your involvement with firearms, whether you came from a similar place as me or not, following gun safety rules is a necessity. In this guide, I'll be covering the 4 universal gun safety rule and explaining the importance of each. I'll then go on to add a number of additional rules I've picked up in my life that I think everyone else can Read More >>
Archaeologists dig wherever there are bones being sought. Rock, soil, mountains, desert, the earth is a quiet repository for that which once walked the earth. But in any action that requires interaction with both the local cultures and mother earth, such work presents its own unique dangers. There are areas of volcanoes and earthquakes, subterranean growls that only seismologists and dogs can hear, rumbling under the earth like trains passing beneath with soundless and unimaginable speed. There's water that sometimes gives up on demure deception and coy concealment, rushing over the banks, Read More >>
