You VS. the Police (Part One)

I’m a cop.  I’ve worn a badge of one sort or another for 35+ years.  I started out in ODs, then progressed to BDUs and even “Chocolate Chips” for the desert. I was an MP. Now I wear blue.  I’m just like you; well, maybe not, but I have good days and bad days and kids and […]

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 […]

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 […]

Riddle Me This…

Let me start this post by saying that I think that the American gun culture is currently in a state of flux. This can be a good thing, and as gun owners, we have a responsibility to participate in this transformation in ways that are to our advantage, rather than in ways that are not. […]

Visiting the Great American Outdoor Show

This weekend I had the opportunity to ride with friends to go and see the Great American Outdoor Show held at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, PA. The show runs February 6th-14th this year, and is worth a visit if you’re at all interested in guns, knives, archery, hunting, or fishing. While I […]

Podcasts – News and Reviews!

Updated 03/23/2016… Much like blogs, podcasts offer an alternative form of new media that can offer insight and value to the interested consumer. In this instance, I am referring to gun owners that seek gun related news and reviews not commonly available in the mass media and popular press. I’m not sure when exactly I […]
