10 Things I’d Look For In A SHTF Shotgun

This Winchester SXP would make a fine last resort shotgun.

Recently I received a Winchester SXP Marine Defender shotgun for testing and evaluation, and this got me thinking. Yeah, I know. Me thinking is a big stretch of the imagination, but just go with it, OK? You hear a lot of scary scenarios from the prepper community. Some of them are realistic, others – not so much. […]

No Guns Allowed!

Gun free zones

I feel like I’m a fairly bright guy. Especially when I watch Wheel of Fortune and guess at least half of the puzzles without buying a single vowel. Brainpower or not, this issue has me totally flamboozled. It’s the “No Guns Allowed” campaign led by the Moms Demand Alimony From That Napoleonic Little Tyrant Michael […]

The 9 Worst Hollywood Gun Scenes Ever

When it comes to guns, Hollywood has it all figured out.

Hollywood always gets everything right when it comes to guns. That’s why I get most of my gun-related information from watching TV and movies! After writing over 1,000 gun-related articles, I still have a lot more to learn from the firearms experts in Hollywood. Just kidding! On the whole, Hollywood does a terrible job of […]

A Story of Students and Shotguns

Note in ascending order the wad, shot cloud and short-lived clay.

What do you get when you combine 133 college students, from seven colleges with over a quarter of a million dollars worth of competition shotguns? You get boatloads of clay dust and a lot of smiles. I just returned from the annual SCTP Florida shoot. SCTP is the Scholastic Clay Target Program. It’s a nationwide […]

Four Gun Laws I Would Repeal First (If I Was a Benevolent Dictator)

7-rounds-robbery

Back when I was young, naive and not yet wise to the ways of the world, about two weeks ago, I was fantasizing about being elected Benevolent Dictator of the Universe. You know, just like President Nine Iron. Since I view the whole gun issue as a great barometer for individual liberty and personal accountability, […]

Wanted: Marital Bliss at the Shooting Range

Half-Cocked: Professional Shooting Instruction

“What exactly will it take to make this work for you?” “I’ll be in the truck!” “&%$#*)! !!^&$%@!” I overheard these comments and a few more choice ones, at my regular shooting range the other day. The source was a couple, probably in their 50s, who had settled in at one of the shooting benches […]

TSA Bully Tactics: Making Travelers Violate Federal Law

This is legal if you pay attention to the rules. Don't let TSA agents bully you in to breaking the law,

When you’re the fastest growing federal bureaucracy in history (that’s NOT a good thing by the way) you get to do pretty much whatever you want, regardless of what the law says. After all, they’ve got uniforms, buy lawyers by the pallet load, and if all else fails, have Eric Holder on their side of […]

You Might Be A Gun Control Activist If…

Gun-Control-911

You might be a gun control activist if… You think Shannon watts makes a lot of sense if people would just listen to her. You think that Shannon could deliver her message more effectively if she talked slow and loud, like you do when visiting foreign countries. You’ve had a pot luck supper at Michael […]

10 Ways To Convince Your Wife You Need A New Gun

Beretta Diamond pistol

Unlike Mia, I had no problem whatsoever addressing this scenario. After all, I’m a world-class expert at rationalizing my gun purchases. Don’t believe me? Then explain how I have so many guns, yet am still happily married. At least until my better half reads this article. For a limited time only, I’m going to share […]

Pro-Gun Policy Will Fail Because There Were No Nuclear Wars

Cold War strategy sucked

  Some gun control mantras make my head explode – and they don’t even use the phrase “for the children!” I’ll venture a guess they will cause you equal frustration. So go find a roll of duct tape. Then wrap your head with it. Done? Good. Now wrap an extra couple of layers, because I’m […]
