Ruger’s Security-9 Why purchase a cheap gun when you can purchase a good gun?

11/06/2019 Always wanted to be a photographer. Never had the time, as necessities tend to move life’s focus in unexpected ways. Photography is a way of expressing how we see form. The challenge comes in representing what we see with fidelity. Subsequently, I try to keep photos simple… stark, so that the subject stands on…

Ruger’s SP101 357 Magnum In Basic Black Something other than spray and pray

11/21/2019 Thanksgiving is fast approaching. Close enough to start a refrigerator thaw on the turkey and to appreciate a bit of weather warm up that will have the snow off the ground by the time the day arrives. It will be a day with close friends, relaxed and focusing on how good life has been…

The three cast bullets on the right with a Brinell hardness of 16 will…

Smith and Wesson’s Performance Center’s M&P40 Shield… Part 1 What is better, the 9mm Luger, the 40 S&W, or the 45 Auto? Yes.

My wife and I are in the midst of winter colds… flu… one of those two. Ironically, we contracted the flu when my wife insisted on getting a flu shot and I had to go to the doctor’s office for a wellness check. A wellness check is shorthand for the doctor looking at a computer…
