Have We Evolved?

Americas Favorite Past Time the BASHFEST!!

So, have we really evolved? The inability to contribute to any argument outside criticism, derogatory statements, or outright profanity is not new.  It was something experienced many decades ago in grade school.  My guess; its been around since humans began interacting with some form of communication beyond a grunt.  I think they call that evolution, not …

U.S. Optics Academy

U.S. Optics has long been a strong contributor and supporter of long range shooting.  Given our relationship goes back some 15 years that is saying a lot.  Headed off to compete in the North American Sniper Championships in the early 2000’s  they provided two of their latest long range scopes for use on mine and my …

Consequences

Yesterday a concealed carry holder in Utah intervened during a car jacking and was forced to shoot and kill the suspect.  It is so far proving to be the perfect example of why many carry a concealed firearm.

The Scourge of “comparison”

It was some four decades ago my journey started as a student, practitioner, and teacher of the “martial arts”.  The term itself can be controversial, everything is these days, but it encompasses most of my training and has become mainstream as a description of what I do.    Most training included (and still does) traditional Japanese …

No More Sloppy Seconds!

My relationship with the suppressor industry has always been a mixed bag. You find no stronger advocate for their use, especially in the gun media. My willingness to maintain a Class II manufacturing license allows me to continue this advocacy where others cannot or will not. Relegated to occasional use at an event, most writers …

Suppressors, the Hunters friend, not an Assassins Tool

Survival Armor “WARRIOR” Tactical Armor

Having spent hundreds of hours in tactical armor, and over twenty years in concealable armor, it has encompassed a large part of my life since 1983 when my Second Chance vest was first donned. It was uncomfortable as hell, heavy and hot, yet from that day forward a vest was used continually; first as a …

Constitutional Rights – Who needs them!!!

Simple, at no time in my life have people been more willing to take them away from others! Ya, others, take mine away and I will fight to the DEATH!! But yours, well who cares, …

Prologue This is my first training review on the blog. For the last few years I have been reviewing training nationwide for Harris Publications. Like all things in the magazine world, interest ebbs and flows. The last year there has been a noticeable lull in interest in straight up training reviews. When a weapon of …
