A Handgun Laser Primer

Beretta lasers-2

If you want to start a bar fight, just bring up the topic of using lasers on handguns. Although they’ve been mainstream for years, there’s still an amazing amount of controversy, disinformation and downright bunk floating around out there.

Why not add a light and laser to your nightstand gun?

Last time, I discussed the types of handgun-mounted lasers and how they operate. Now, let’s take a look at the “why” behind mounting a laser on your handgun. In other words, what are the benefits? Next in this series, we’ll talk about what some consider drawbacks. I consider most of the perceived drawbacks myths, but […]

My Danner Mountain Light II hiking boots on the plane ride back. A little dirty but none-the-worse for wear.

The annual Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT) is a mammoth affair. I’m talking epic. Hosted by the Sands Convention Center in the Venetian / Palazzo Hotel complex in Las Vegas, the SHOT event takes up all one million square feet of exhibition space. To put that in perspective, there are 12.5 miles of […]

These Boots Were Made for Walkin’

Danner Mountain Light II boots

I picked up this pair of classic Danner hiking boots after touring the Danner factory back on November. Seeing the handcrafting process in detail gave me a major itch to try out a classic pair of stitched down sole boots.  I scratched that itch with this pair of Mountain Light II boots. They’re the closest thing […]

Silencer Sunday supplies.

I had the opportunity for a range outing with my son and a couple of his friends today. Somehow, we got a bug up our collective butt that today should be proclaimed Silencer Sunday. It turned out to be a pretty good idea. Assembling some guns currently in for review and plenty of silencers, we […]
