Tricked Out Carry Pistols

Tricked Out Carry Pistols

There are some very cool modifications people make to their carry pistols.  Everything from Big Dot sights and stippling the polymer, to cutting extra cocking serrations and removing material from the slide to make it cycle faster.  I’m all for giving yourself the best chance of survival in a bad situation, but at some point […]

I’m Back… and in the Backwoods

I’m Back… and in the Backwoods

What is it like moving out of the city into…well…not the city?  I’m not talking about leaving civilization (although I often daydream about living on a homestead in Alaska).

If you haven’t tried to make a knife yet, I would like to strongly encourage you to do so.  It’s an awesome weekend project, or if you’re into fine details, you can take as much time as you like.  I happen to have a knife blank from a file that I never finished in the […]

Looking for Your Keys?

There are pros and cons to a weapon-mounted light on your home defense gun.  Yes, you need a weapon-mounted light, but there are only certain situations where this is a good tactic.  In many cases, the need for a handheld light is just as imperative.
