It's a simple gun club well away from the outskirts of a large Midwest town. Across the road, a cornfield that will soon be stubble, waves in the breeze like a friendly neighbor with a wind that picked up at the end of the day. Peering down on the road that leads to this place, the August sun, already hanging low and orange in the sky, like ripe fruit, waits for the rim of the earth to take one last bite out of it. You are alone, yet you are not, a couple of cars in the lot as folks put away the last of their equipment, the last person out making sure the clubhouse is locked, the gate Read More >>

One of the most relevant things when it comes to target shooting is your vision. This is what allows you to see what’s in front of you clearly, enabling you to have better aim and shoot properly. But what happens when your sight quality starts diminishing? Age is often the main cause for the decrease in eyesight, and it leads to many people having to wear glasses or contact lenses. These individuals complain about not being able to focus on the target, which ruins the whole experience. So, what should someone do in this case? Should they use contact lenses? Why Should You Wear Contact Read More >>
The U.S. military adopted the 5.56mm NATO cartridge in 1963, during the Vietnam War. Ever since, there’s been contention about whether or not it was a good change. The dissent over the switch to 5.56mm leads us to question why the U.S. would pick up the 5.56 NATO round at all, if it’s not clearly a better option. But, most of the contention surrounding the 5.56mm NATO round is based on incomplete consideration. The military must account for things beyond terminal ballistics when it comes to choosing a service round. As such, it was a combination of factors that spurred the U.S. military 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.

Pistols have one (or more) stationary integral Read More >>
You doubtless heard that a “silencer” was used in the recent Virginia Beach mass murder. Do not use the word “silencer.” The correct term is “suppressor.” I have yet to see a suppressor that made a gunshot silent; at best they make gunshot less obnoxiously loud. Only in Hollywood do “silencers” exist which made a firearm sound like a pellet gun. As Dr. John Lott observed, the only reason a mass murderer would use a suppressor is to make the noise less deafening to him. The use of the term “silencer” makes it easier to justify bans that will have no impact on nearly every Read More >>
What is in a Name? click on pictures to enlarge What is in a name? For people who know and appreciate firearms, just the name makes a statement. So many names that in and of themselves, speak of quality, of history.You tell someone you bought a gun, and you get interested. But to certain folks, you say. "I bought a 1911", or I bought a "Browning" and you get some attention. Just the word "Colt" makes ME blush like a schoolgirl. The sciences were my subjects in school, and walking through an excavation, through a field, I can name things: trees, plants, animals. Acer diabolicum, canas Read More >>
