  1. The Best Inexpensive 9mm 115gr FMJ

    As a core part of my self-directed training, I spend a decent amount of time in the range (carefully) slinging bullets downrange; as a result, I work through a lot of ammo, especially 9mm. This comes from a few factors: 1) I strongly believe in the need for regular training (both supervised and not) for anyone who carries, 2) I am always working on improving my skills and am often training for the next competition (a fairly newer passion), and 3) I just really enjoy collecting and...
  2. The Case for Compatible Gun Ownership

    My twins’ birthday just passed last week. My twins are not identical; in fact, they are a boy and a girl (I just love when I tell people that I have boy/girl twins, and then they ask me if they are identical! Duh!). Not being identical twins, I cannot use the old mantra of “two is one and one is none”. Of course, even if identical, I doubt they would appreciate such statements. In the area of firearms ownership, however, I am a big proponent of that philosophy. A recent thread here on...

  4. The Glock Pistol - Perfecting Perfection

    The Glock pistol has been around for over 30 years now and has taken the world by storm in that time. I remember when the Glock first arrived and I thought “that is an ugly pistol”. Well it still isn’t the prettiest but there is no doubt about the reliability of the pistol, it’s ugly but it works. Glock has long touted that the perfection of their pistol and for the most part I agree. With that being said there is always room for improvement. After its introduction in the 1980’s slight...
  5. Origins of the 2nd Amendment

    I have a wonderful job. I get to work with my hands repairing furniture. I also get to work with people in my job as a property manager. I enjoy getting to visit my tenants, talking with them and making sure that they are maintaining their homes according to our contractual agreement. On my trips to the tenant’s homes, I also inspect it for any maintenance problems, cleanliness, and mechanical issues – HVAC, water tank, etc. One area which I don’t really pay much attention to is the...
  6. 25 Cent Glock Trigger Job

    Since purchasing a Glock 19 Gen 3 back in 2008, I've read articles and watched videos on modifications and accessories but none intrigued me more than the 25 Cent Trigger Job. It was only last year that I finally did it because I had almost everything needed to perform it and because it doesn't require any special skills beyond patience and desire. I'm not a gunsmith, only a Glock enthusiast so what follows is what was common among all the resources I found on the procedure. Special...
  7. Review: Meprolight FT Bullseye Green Dot

    The Meprolight FT Bullseye easily replaces the rear sights on standard size Glock and uses 2 points within the sight tube to aim; the circle at the back of the sight and the dot at the front. The result is you are still lining up the ‘rear’ circle with the ‘front’ dot to aim. I mounted the FT Bullseye with minimal difficulty on my G17 Gen 4. The sight does take getting used to and I found myself trying to find the front sight at first. As I continued working with the sights I found that...
  8. The Glock Influence

    Standing in his small garage workshop nearly four decades ago, could Gaston Glock have imagined the impact of what he was about to embark on? A revolutionary type of new sidearm. The brainchild of an Austrian native who at the time was doing well for himself in the manufacturing industry, holding a lucrative government contract with the Austrian Ministry of Defense where he supplied field knives and bayonets to the Austrian Army.
  9. Make your Glock trigger feel like a 1911!

    Ever wonder why there are so many aftermarket Glock triggers? Do a simple search for “Glock triggers” and watch the number of hits and each promise the very best experience. Now that doesn’t mean that the stock Glock trigger is the worst experience but it does indicate that dissatisfaction with Gaston’s trigger is significant.
  10. Blacklist Match Grade Barrel Test and Review

    I’ve been thinking of an aftermarket match grade barrel for some time now, but never really knew the advantages or disadvantages of owning one, until now. The past few years I have been heavily involved in competition shooting (IDPA, USPSA, and GSSF), and I’m at the point where a little edge here and there is starting to matter, so I looked into match grade barrels and what they have to offer. After an extensive online search and review of the various barrels available, I decided on a barrel...
  11. Semi-auto vs Revolver, Especially as a Carry Gun Choice

    I like revolvers as much as I like semi-autos. Just yesterday, with a late spring snowfall still on the ground, I went out to my backyard range with my S&W 686 that has a 2.5” barrel. I have an IWB holster for it and was practicing quick draw and rapid shooting at 7 yards. There was no brass flying into my face or onto the snow. For training fun, it was easy to stagger rounds by leaving a couple cylinder chambers empty. When the handgun goes “click” instead of “BOOM” I want to see if my hold...
  12. THE PECULIAR PROBLEM OF HANDLOADS IN SELF-DEFENSE SHOOTINGS:

    First, my caveat and my bona fides. My caveat: I’m a lawyer, but I’m not your lawyer. What follows is commentary based upon my education and experience, but it is not legal advice. If you need legal advice, go hire a lawyer licensed in the applicable jurisdiction. As for my bona fides: I am an attorney and I’ve been practicing in litigation for almost fifteen years as of this writing. I am licensed in the Arkansas state and federal district courts, the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals and the...
  13. The .460 Rowland a Semi-Auto Magnum

    The .460 Rowland conversion is available for most popular .45 ACP pistols, (Glock,XD,1911, etc). The .460 Rowland is meant to offer .44 maa type ballistics in a .45 ACP pistol. From a 1911 conversion it will push a 185 grain bullet at 1575 feet per second offering over 1000 ft/lbs. The 240 grain can be pushed to 1350 and a 255 hardcast will move out at 1300fps. You don't need different magazines. The casing is 1/16" longer than a .45 ACP to prevent firing in a normal .45. The bullets are...
  14. Pistol Caliber Carbines

    For years I have had a 45ACP DI (gas operated) AR-15 which runs great and is very accurate, but as of late I wanted to add a couple of uppers in 9mm and 45GAP so I contacted Ron Williams of RMW XTREME in Florida to build the uppers. Ron was also the one that built my 45ACP upper so I knew he was the person to go to. I did not want to go with a blowback upper because of the need to run a very heavy buffer and recoil spring, in speaking with Ron he builds all of his pistol caliber DI uppers to...
  15. The .41 Remington Magnum: The Under-appreciated Middle Magnum

    The less-than auspicious .41 magnum had an unusual beginning and not many people know the whole story. In 1963, Elmer Keith and Bill Jordan, with some help from Skeeter Skelton, petitioned Smith & Wesson, Remington, and Norma to produce a pistol and ammunition in .41 caliber which would fall between the existing .357 Magnum and .44 Magnum cartridges in ballistic performance. But why? Why did these three leading handgun ballistics and law enforcement "Experts" see the need for a "middle...
