Podcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 33:40 — 15.4MB) | EmbedSubscribe: Android | Google Podcasts | RSS | MoreI recently asked my friends about where to send someone for training with a pistol and an AR-15. I received multiple messages saying that I should just bring whoever needs the training out to a match, and they’ll figure out what works and what doesn’t. I don’t think this is the right answer. We should …

[Video] Optic Height Over Bore

(Naughty language warning) Here’s a video I found that shows the importance of being aware of the height of your optic above the bore line: Post by Buffalo Arms Trading LLC. Height over bore seems simple enough, but it’s something that I see a lot of shooters struggle with at action rifle type matches. A lot of people will pull short range head shots down into the Charlie zone in the chest because they don’t …

The “Beer Can” AR-15

A friend of mine lives up in Michigan where pop cans and beer cans have a $0.10 deposit that is paid when you buy them, and then you return the can to the store and get your $0.10 back. Picking up cans is a big thing in Michigan, and hardly anyone tosses a can in the trash. My buddy’s neighbor likes to drink a lot of beer, and apparently worked out a deal that my …

Ares Armor in National City, CA is battling for their 1st Amendment rights, while promoting the 2nd. These folks put up a billboard for their business, and are being threatened with legal action and jail time if they don’t take it down. I’ll be honest in telling you that I’m not super familiar with Ares Armor, other than hearing their name a handful of times when scouring my Facebook feed, but after looking over their …

There’s Two Kinds of Gun People:

People with clean guns, and people with filthy guns. Tonight I decided that I was going to clean my AR since I literally cannot remember the last time I ran anything down the barrel that wasn’t going faster than the speed of sound. I took it down to the garage, separated the upper and lower, and retrieved my cleaning supplies. I did the thing that every one of us does, and that is to remove …

Dick’s Sporting Goods Sales and Stocks Plummet

Guns.com ran an interesting article yesterday about how Dick’s Sporting Goods sales and stock have taken a nosedive since they stopped selling black rifles back in December. If you remember, I wrote an article a while back about how Dick’s was refusing to sell ammo to those who are not US Citizens citing the BATFE regulations, yet the BATFE’s own website makes it very clear that legal aliens MAY purchase ammo (and firearms!). You may …

Daniel Defense Fixed Rail Mounted Front Sight

Daniel Defense has a reputation for making great products, and that reputation is not lost on their small parts. I picked up one of their rail mounted fixed front sights a few months back, and I must say, the quality is phenomenal. The front sight mounted up to my 13″ Troy TRX Extreme easily, and once the screw is locked down, it holds zero without issue. There are a couple of reasons that I purchased …
