  1. Working With Kids

    One of the things I enjoy most involves getting youngsters involved with .22 rimfire shooting. Each year, our gun club will hold a "Family Day", where anyone, including visitors from neighboring states, can come and shoot firearms and archery all day for FREE. We even have one member who mans the grill and fries burgers and warms hot dogs for those who would like one of those and a soft drink. I man the .22 rimfire pistol area and provide several of my Ruger Mark .22 rimfire caliber pistols...

Check these out and give him some support: View: [MEDIA=youtube]EYAxOuIwGG0[/MEDIA] [i][size=2][url=https://youtu.be/EYAxOuIwGG0]View: https://youtu.be/EYAxOuIwGG0[/url][/size][/i] View: [MEDIA=youtube]3glyQwacfwM[/MEDIA] [i][size=2][url=https://youtu.be/3glyQwacfwM]View: https://youtu.be/3glyQwacfwM[/url][/size][/i]
  3. MantisX.... An in depth review.

    First thanks for reading what will be an in depth review of the MantisX system. I purchased the MantisX X10 on July 3rd, 2020 after reading several reviews and in depth review of their website. Their torture test video really gave me an idea of the quality of the product being constructed of electronics and gyroscopes and its relation to ability to survive various recoils of the firearms I own and shoot. In this first post I intended to focus on initial setup of the application and device....
  4. Target Shooting At Extended Distances

    I shoot at an indoor range and I use a NRA B3 paper target - please see attached photograph. At closer distances (5 yards) when I focus on the front sight (Dawson Precision Fiber) the target and the black bull on the target is blurry but I can still establish good a sight picture and my accuracy is good. When I move the target out to 10 yards and I focus on the front sight because the target is much further away the target is very blurry and the black bull is extremely hard to see when I...
  5. Infomercial on CSAT training with Paul Howe

    I was asked in a thread here to share some of my experiences with training under MSG (ret) Paul Howe at Combat Shooting and Tactics. Happy to do so as a repeat student. For the record, Paul has never paid me anything, (quite the opposite, in fact) I am simply a repeat customer who leans heavily on his material when I’m training students of my own. Pertinent info about me: shooting for over 20 years with a defensive handgun focus, police academy top shooter award 2004, and designated...
  6. LEE factory Crimp Die

    A couple months back I got a LEE full-length FCD for my .45acp cases because full length issues made me want to try this. It works great except the decap pin keeps getting pushed up. I can smack it with a hammer and all is fine. But I shouldn't have to do this! I looked at the pin and it seemed OK. I put a 45 case in backwards to see if the pin wasn't hitting the case bottom. It wasn't. It cleared the flash hole fine. I did the same with a 9mm case and the pin fit through just fine in the...
  7. S&W 5906 restore

    Part 1. I recently won an early square trigger guard S&W model 5906 on GunStroker, for the very reasonable price of $300.01 + shipping. Below's an image that the seller sent me to clarify it's model number, as the original images online were blurry and looked more like "3906" than 5906: 'Looking a little ugly, but I already knew this. But beauty is only skin deep, right?! Anyway, two days ago I picked it up from my FFL and after I got home with it I began the usual process of field strip...
  8. Gun Discharges in Walmart

    I saw on the local news tonight that the Walmart in the county that I lived in most of my life and the one that I shopped in was evacuated today because a person accidentally discharged his or her firearm in the bathroom. We are our own worst enemy. How can you blame a business for putting up no firearms allowed when this happens ? I can’t blame them. How can you blame people for supporting more gun laws when this happens while you are shopping with your kids. I was in McDonald’s...
  9. gun control ammunition and/or guns

    Walmart just announced they will stop selling handgun ammunition nationwide. Also short barreled rifles. This will drive prices up across the board because of less competition. Remember when you go to vote in 2020, all democratic candidates running the president have said publicly they want to ban all guns, not just ar types. What good is a gun without ammo A dangerous time for the second amendment and gun owners.
  10. I Miss High Standard

    High Standard went out of business several years ago. They were around a long time and made many fine firearms. I was plinking today with my High Standard double action Sentinal 22 LR revolver. I was using 22 CeeBee caps and they were a lot of fun; it sounded like shooting a cap gun! Anybody got High Standard or Hi Standard stories? One of their best products was the Supermatic semiauto 22 LR, unfortunately, I don't own one...yet.
  11. How shooting in matches altered my whole perception of CCW and SD

    For many years I was comfortable with practicing at the range. I was confident in my abilities to handle my firearms simply because I had put in the time to practice them. My practice didn't just mean I stood there, shot at the paper and after 100 rounds of so, go home. I practiced double taps, drawing from concealment, target acquisition, reloading... plenty of fundamental things other than just shooting at the paper. I was very confident in myself, my guns and my equipment. This all fell...
  12. The Statistics on Gun Deaths are WRONG!

    We all know that gun death statistics are inflated by suicides. A huge portion of gun deaths are by suicide - a fact usually ignored by anti-2nd folks. But within those suicide by gun death figures the vast majority of them happened when the person was intoxicated. I've spent years as a mobile crisis counselor - many with the fire department - and have been on scene for countless suicide by gun deaths. In my experience, all were intoxicated at the time. Bringing this up since last...
  13. Dunk-It Cleaners and Ultrasonic Baths...Do these Clean Well??

    Hey all. I got a good friend that called me the other day and wanted to know about cleaning really dirty Firearms. He specifically asked me about these “bucket” type dunking or immersion cleaners and ultrasonic cleaners. I told him I had no idea, but promised I’d find out from those that know. So here I am. He shoots a LOT of .22 LR semi autos pistols and 10/22 rifles. He and his son also shoots a Judge pistol using .410 shells almost all the time. He also shoots shotguns and semi...
  14. Under the Radar: Rupublican Senate Committee Hearing or Red Flag Laws

Some of our friends aren't above selling us out for self interest and political expediency or other aspirations... "Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., in his opening remarks, sought to play down fears of second amendment infringement. "There are a lot of people [who] may be worried, 'Is the government going to come take your guns?' And...
  15. Which one Glock 48 or Glock 19 Gen 5

    Looking to Purchase one of these Glocks either the G-19 Gen 5 or the New G-48. My hands are not big, please give me your option on which one and WHY! It will be my EDC, have holsters for the G-19 like 5 of them, NO holsters for the New G-48. I like the way both feel in my hand though, confused. This will also be the ONLY handgun that I own at the present time. Had to sell everything at a point, Thanks!!!
