Vantage Point: A look at new guns and gear…

My favorite pocket/ankle pistol has an upgrade. The new XD-S OSP from Springfield Armory is now optics ready. The test model shown here came with a Crimson Trace CTS-1500 mini red dot sight pre-installed and ready to go. In fact, when I took it to the range to zero the optic, I found it was already dead on. And I do mean precisely. At 15 yards it was shooting right through the red dot superimposed on the target.

The .22 LR Can (Almost) Kill You

The .22 LR can (almost) kill you.

The argument is background noise anyplace two or more gun guys are gathered. Could you, should you ever, use a .22LR as a defensive weapon? Everybody’s got one. Most of us have several. How would the humble little plinking gun perform against something warm, bipedal and angry?

Easy to tote and even easier to shoot, the .22LR is America’s cartridge. It’s inevitable a few of those zillions of rounds unleashed each year might find their way into something gooey. I’ve seen a few unfortunates ventilated with those zippy little 40-gr. bullets. Here’s what it looks like up close and personal.

Dry Ammo Storage and Gun Maintenance on the Cheap

Seems weirdly appropriate to share some creative ideas on topics like keeping your ammo supply dry and safe and your guns in working order using cheap supplies… Blame it on 2021 saying, “Hold my beer and watch this 2020!”

I’m not really a cheapskate—not in my heart, anyway. It’s just that I decided to have kids rather than cash, y’know? But I admit, when I look at some price tags, I hear bagpipes wailin’ and the Scottish blood runs in me like the Rogue River at spring thaw. The way the economy is going—or not goin’—2021 is lookin’ like a great year for penny-pinching, ain’t it?

The Pros and Cons of an Adrenaline Dump

A great read on the effects, both positive and negative, of adrenaline during a fight for your life.

Those who work in law enforcement and emergency services deal with the almost mystical substance that is known as adrenaline. A lot. Of course, all humans have some experience with this bodily-produced drug, some more than others. Let’s take a look at the effects that it can have on our bodies.

How about following us on social media? You can find us on Twitter and Facebook if you must, but they’re evil, so we’re moving to new networks like Parler, Gab, Clouthub, Telegram, and MeWe where they don’t engage in all that ridiculous censorship and correct-think enforcement. We’ll stick around with the old tech tyrants for a while because, hey, someone has to stay behind enemy lines, right? At least until they kick us off…
