The Founding Fathers Weren’t Idiots

In my last post, I outlined why I own an AR-15. Anti-Gun nuts like to make the argument that the Founding Fathers, “never could have imagined highly advanced weapons like the AR-15 assault rifle with it’s 30-round high-capacity magazine clips.” I call shenanigans. In the late 1700’s, repeating arms had already been developed. And more than imagining them, I think…

Why I Own an AR

I remember the first time I shot an AR-15. It didn’t belong to me, but I had an absolute blast (pun intended) breaking clay pigeons into smaller and smaller pieces on the 50 yard berm. I had shot larger, center-fire rifles in the past, but they all had significant recoil and weren’t that enjoyable to shoot after 20 rounds or…

April 6th IDPA Match Recap

I haven’t done a match recap post in a while, mainly since I haven’t shot a match in a while. My work schedule put me on the road for a few weeks (with a few more weeks coming up), so I was unable to get out to a match. Thankfully, I made it home in time for the first Thursday…

Why I Train

I have decided that for me, 2017 will be the year of training.

This year, I plan on taking a number of classes. I’m not the first to suggest that if…

Why I Carry Concealed

Hopefully you’ve read my last few posts and learned why I carry a gun and why I carry it all the time, even in my home. Today, I’m going to explain why I carry said gun concealed when I’m out in public. For some people, this may not even be a topic worth addressing. When they think of a gun…

Why I Carry A Gun At Home

In the last post, I attempted to explain my thought process for carrying a gun in public. In the next post, I’m going to talk about why I carry concealed as opposed to open cary. Today however, I want to talk about why I carry a gun at home. A Man’s Home is His Castle You’ve heard that saying, I’m…

Why I Carry A Gun

Allow me to introduce myself. I am a normal, average guy. I am very much an introvert, of average height and build, middle-aged and generally pretty mellow. I am pretty confident that no one in the coffee shop where I’m writing this has taken much notice of me. I’m just a regular guy working on a computer. I’m also carrying…
