“Don't shoot fast, shoot good.” –Clint Smith

I bought my first gun when I was 12. For the last 40 years, I've been shooting and hunting. I've put tens of thousands of rounds downrange, had a lot of fun doing so and met some great people along the way. These are the thoughts of a man who likes guns, carries a gun and shoots guns. A lot.

6mm to 1000M

Look at me going all metric… A few weeks ago, I finally had the opportunity to get the Ruger Precision Rifle out to the long distance range. And boy is that fun! The Gun It’s a version 1.5 RPR in 6mm Creedmoor. After the first round of Precision Rifles, Ruger made a few minor changes and introduced a 6mm Creedmoor…

My First Two-Gun Match

  It looks like it’s been about 4 months since my last post. I have but one excuse; work. I got slammed with projects this winter/spring and it’s only now getting back to the normal level of chaos that I enjoy. Also, my oldest daughter got married in March. It’s been a busy season.

Bucket List Guns

I’m pretty sure at some point I’ve mentioned that when I was growing up, I read a lot of gun, hunting and outdoors magazines.

Do Something!

It happens pretty much any time a criminal commits a criminal act while using a firearm—the cries to do something. The tweets go out, late night comedians plead and Democratic politicos do stand-ups asking how much longer it will be before we do something about gun violence. I’ve said before I don’t believe we have a problem with gun violence…

Testing Carry Ammo

This is going to be a different type of test. I’m not doing ballistic gel tests here—you can find plenty of those on YouTube. What I wanted to do in this test was find out what defensive ammo my EDC gun likes best. And by likes best, I mean shoots the most accurately at 10 yards from a standing, unsupported…
