I have a low tolerance level for videos because I can’t easily skim to find the relevant content. That, and people like to make 12-minute videos with one minute’s worth of content. There are a couple of good channels out there though… We asked a few of our freelance writers to tell us about their […]
The annual Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show is too big to see in four full days of walking, so it’s certainly too much to cram into a two-minute video. With the good folks over at Range365, we made a valiant effort to give you a taste of what it’s like.
While the word “squib” doesn’t sound very threatening, it’s one of the more dangerous malfunctions in shooting.

FBI agents have to pass this course of fire on a regular basis. It involves one-hand, two-hand, and weak-hand shooting from distances between three and 25 yards. It’s a great way to measure and track your skills over time.

The timer also adds just a tiny bit of pressure, and that helps you learn to operate your gun under a little bit of stress. You’ll be surprised at how quickly […]
Ever wondered how gun suppressors work? You can call them silencers too, even though the aren’t as quiet in real life as in the movies. They were actually patented back in 1908 as a “Maxim Silencer” so you can be sure that terminology is correct too. Here’s a fun look at what goes on in […]
Got a filthy, dirty AR rifle? Here’s a quick video we put together with the folks from Range365 that shows you how to deep clean it to it runs like a champ. While AR-15s and AR-10s are a lot more resilient than the internet gives them credit for, they do tend to collect plenty of […]
We had a little fun with some very un-scientific testing to see exactly what different handgun calibers would do to wood blocks. Enjoy…
