Ruger’s Mini-14 Tactical 300 Blackout Part II

I hate exercise for the sake of exercise. No, I am not lazy and I have no qualms about expending the same level of energy in more productive or entertaining ways. It is just that exercising, for the sake of exercising, is incredibly boring and offers no short term gratification. I don’t like to feel…

Smith and Wesson’s Performance Center’s M&P40 Shield… Part 2 40 S&W self-defense and trail use handloads

The six bullets pictured above are my standards for short barrel 40 S&W handloads. The soft lead core jacketed bullets do well as components of defensive handloads, fully expanding to 0.750″ or more in ballistic gel, penetrating to 12″ to 18″. The three cast bullets on the right with a Brinell hardness of 16 will…

The truth of the matter is, my writing stems from the stream of consciousness school of expressed…

Browning X Bolt Hunter Part I ... and that it is surely what it is.

Have to love this time of year in Maine. Fall lasts about ten days, right up until 9°F night temperatures great the leaves in the midst of turning. Then the chains, hitch weights and snow blower go on the tractor and about a third of the population heads for Florida. Fly snowbirds fly. The rest…
