The Day After

We largely stay out of the political arenas here on the blog, leaving that stuff to others who are better informed on such matters.  Speaking for John, we are largely of the “live and let live” school of thought.  I personally don’t care much about what people do unless it starts infringing upon my own […]

The Fallacy of Secure Areas

Regular readers of this blog no doubt fall into the “let’s mock the gun-free-zone concept after another mass shooting in a gun-free-zone” camp.  Since we are all probably on the same page when it comes to such zones, there’s no need to beat that dead horse (at least not today).  Instead, I wanted to talk […]

Interacting with Police While Carrying a Weapon

Rather than pass judgement on the recent shooting of Philando Castile by law enforcement personnel, I want to address the situation from an educational perspective. Specifically, I want to talk about how to act and interact in routine dealings with police. Now, I’m not a cop, so I will be addressing this from a somewhat […]

A Few Thoughts on the Orlando Massacre

Like so many Americans, I woke up Sunday to the news of the attack at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida.  As of this writing, 49 people are reported dead and 53 more wounded.  I wish I could say that I am sad or shocked by this news, but, sadly, I think “numb” might be […]

The SHRIKE Belt Fed AR

I’m guessing most folks reading this blog have a fighting rifle. You may have picked an AK, an AR, or maybe something in between like a SIG or a Vz58 .  You might have gone old school with an FN or an HK or M1A or, or, or…  I live in Maryland (that’s behind the […]

NOW is the Time

I am not one to get caught up in “panic buying”.  In the post-Sandy Hook months, I was one of those who was able to profit slightly while panic abounded.  I recall selling a couple of Glock 33 round magazines for $60+, and I unloaded a Keltec Sub 2000 (Glock 9mm model) for $700+.  I […]

Do as I Say, Not as I Do!

Just in my last blog post I mentioned how we try not to get TOO political here on the blog.  But, sometimes I just cannot help myself, particularly given the fact that this figures to be a pretty important election year.  We are being bombarded hourly with political reports on the news and social media sites […]

DRGO – Healthcare and Gun Owners…

I wanted to springboard off of Robert’s post about the apparent woeful ignorance of some doctors about guns to highlight an organization that I believe is doing some real good and fighting the good fight. As Robert mentioned in his post, we try to remain relatively apolitical with this blog, but occasionally I do think […]

Is There a Doctor in the House? Why Yes, Unfortunately!

It was never my intention, nor John’s, to use this blog as a political soap box.  A few of our posts have dabbled in this area, but we feel like others do a better and more focused job in the political arenas.  Nevertheless, a couple of articles recently jumped out at me, and I wanted […]
