Gun Clutter

From Dr. LateBloomer,   I’ve been reading a lot lately about cleaning and organizing one’s life. One trendy method is some Asian thing where you hold your possessions and commune with them before deciding whether to keep or pitch them. There’s another one out there called “Swedish Death Cleaning”. That last one sounds a bit morbid, but it stems from …

Review: IWI Galil ACE Pistol, An Epitome in EDC Carbines

I’m often pleased by the performance of a firearm. It’s been a rare occurrence, only once in just over a year, that a firearm has given me trouble. That incident was remedied by a part swap and the rifle itself continued on to success in its trials. It is far rarer I’m surprised by a firearm. Where picking it up …

The Civilian PDW Concept, Part 1

The PDW concept came to be at the end of the 1980s and was a product of a NATO request. NATO wanted to replace their 9mm submachine guns. They wanted a weapon that wasn’t as large as a rifle, but more potent than a submachine gun. NATO specifically wanted something that could efficiently defeat body armor. That’s the military/NATO PDW, …

RECON Drill: Do you set up shoot and move?

Shooting and moving is an important skill to dust off every once in awhile. Sadly it’s raining today so we will live vicariously through YouTube. I did a variation of this early this week and I was… dusty. But by the third run the fail duster had done its job and I was shooting where I wanted to again. Pro …

Sunday Sermon: Accuracy is Relative

“Most combat shooting standards will be more dependent on ‘pucker factor’ than the inherent accuracy of the gun.” A note on accuracy. It is a widely abused term. If a rifle isn’t ‘Sub-MOA’ (even if the person asking has no notion what that means) or a handgun doesn’t stack rounds at ten yards in their hands then the gun in …

Trajectory

Trajectory, or bullet flight path, is probably one of the most misunderstood topics in firearms by firearms owners. Bullets do not fly straight. Even when fired out of a barrel that is 100% leveled to the earth the bullet flies in a parabolic and predictable arc. We can predict this and often use optics to assist us in predicting this …

Two Stage Precision Ignition: Geissele Trigger Review SSA-E and SuperSCAR

I swore I would never become a trigger snob. I believe I have succeeded. The AR15’s stock, single-stage, mil-spec weight trigger works fine. I’ve shot targets out at 500 yards with an unaltered mil-spec M-16A2 rifle. The same can be said for the SCAR series rifles. The stock FN single-stage triggers with their moderate weight and clean break (on both …

Short Barrels and Terminal Ballistics

There is a lot of ‘information’ circling about the corners of industry about what short barrels do to a rifle’s effectiveness. I’ve heard a multitude of variations on the actual effects however the two overarching themes are -They are less accurate -They have less ‘stopping power’ Sage Dynamics does an excellent job in this video covering why those two myths …

3 Gun Fun!

From Team Hollis A few weeks ago my husband and I attended a 3 gun competition at South Kent Sportsman’s Club (http://www.sksc.org/). It was my first three gun match so instinctively I was a bundle of nerves, not knowing expectations and course rules. But after an hour or so of being there I decided that this was going to be …
