Next Phase

You’d have to be living under a rock or without an internet connection to not notice that the next big gun control push from the Democrat / Joyce / Bloomberg fascist axis is for Universal Background Checks (UBCs). This worries me for a couple reasons. This attack vector is going to be difficult to parry, […]

Dot, Dot, Dot

A few totally, completely unrelated things I’ve noticed lately. Item The First: In an almost periodic musical chairs format shuffle, one of my local Top-40 FM radio stations is now “105.7 Man Up!” radio. While I suppose I should be grateful that I am now a demographic worth pandering to, and the playlist is pretty […]

This Is All Your Fault

In case you missed it, a brief recap of this past week’s stupid gun-o-sphere drama. 1). A few months ago in a now deleted Facebook comment, George Fennell, the engineer behind Weapon Shield, insinuates that a popular and well advertised firearm lubricant is in fact repackaged vegetable oil. 2). Interest piqued, Andrew Tuhoy at Vuurwapen […]

Jim Wilson: Full Of Crap, Again

So “Sheriff” Jim Wilson is again confirming his high capacity for fecal matter retention, this time subtly questioning the need for ordinary citizens to participate in Super Scary paramilitary training and own any kind of MOLLE. From the fazeboogs: Of course he doesn’t come out and say it, but he’s heavily implying that the only […]

Range Time Meltdown

Depending on what gunblogosphere orbits you circulate in, you may or may not have heard about the sudden drama surrounding Range Time Tactical Shooting, one of the higher profile “guy and a berm” firearms training companies that have sprung up in the last decade. The duo of Corey Jackson and Erika Maxwell rode the waves […]

Patrick Kilchermann of Instant Accuracy, Meet the Streisand Effect. Streisand Effect, Meet Patrick Kilchermann

So about a year ago, Caleb at Gun Nuts junked the light night cable TV pitch come to the shooting community, Instant Accuracy. tl;dr: If you want a proven, skill improving at home dry-fire program, you can get better ones for less, or free. Anyway, this didn’t sit well with pitchman Patrick Kilchermann, who was […]

Guns I Hate Part 2.5: Externalities of The Derp Tier

As I’ve mentioned before in this slow running series, singular anecdotes of individual guns failing or working well aren’t demonstrative in of themselves, but my observations at this month’s 2-gun match reminded me of something I had forgotten to bring up. In my squad of a baker’s dozen shooters, the Springfield Inc XD was well […]

Guns I Hate Part 2: The Springfield Inc. XD

nb: In the case of butthurts, please take a moment and reread this post. Also see Part 1: The Ruger SR. tldr: That your singular pistol works fine and you are happy with it is not a statistically relevant piece of information. Without the magnitude of numbers involved in police contracts or competitive pistol leagues, […]

There’s Always Free Cheese In A Mousetrap

Soooo, the SIG SB15 “Pistol” “Brace”. Clever end run around stupid and anachronistic legal hassles or this generation’s SWD Striker-12? Will the ATF demand we hand over the Pistol Brace units only or will they also take the gun it’s attached to?

Guns I Hate Part 1: The Ruger SR Series

As I alluded to months ago, there exists a tier of autoloading pistols between outright trash like Hi-Point and the various potmetal ring of fire companies, and actual decent pistols that are popular in police service and competition. Let’s call it the “Derp Tier”, because for about the same money you could have had a […]
