Thanksgiving 2012

  As the year winds down, reflection becomes prevalent.  In these months of stress it’s important to focus on the important things in life.  For me that is my family and my friends. My wife, who provides the stability that allows me to follow my passions. I am thankful for family and friends that put up with me when I talk about guns and shooting nonstop. I am thankful to live in a country where I have freedom to do the things I love. I am thankful to live in a state that protects those freedoms. I am thankful...

CMMG .22 Conversion Kit – AR15

CMMG .22 Conversion Kit – AR15 [displayproduct] The first thing I thought after assembling my first AR15 from parts was, how can I shoot this all the time?  I mean, I can make it rain, but I’m on a budget, foo’.  Hookers ain’t cheap. After some research I zeroed in on the CMMG .22 LR conversion kit.  I paid about $179 for the black phosphate bolt and one 25 round magazine.  Now see, this isn’t just a conversion kit, this is a shoot-a-gun-that-you-assembled-with-your-bare-hands-as-often-as-you-want-don’t-be-an-ammo-scrooge-when-your-kids-and-friends-want-to-shoot-your-AR-even-your-wife-will-have-fun-shooting-this kit, and boy did it fulfill all of that. For all intents and purposes, this is...

Kholster Crescent Concealed Holster Review

  I’ve had my concealed holster for a few months now.  I bought Kholster because it was on sale and I wasn’t 100% sure what I would need. It turns out that I don’t need to look any further, because I found the perfect holster for my situation. When I first broke it out, I thought “holy crap this thing is huge.”  The holster, pervert.  I knew there would be a  break-in period so I started wearing it sans firearm to break in the leather.  It didn’t take long, just a few days and it keeps getting more comfortable...

Rock Island Armory Officers Model 1911 Range Report

I’ve had my RIA 1911 (Officers model – 3.5″ barrel) for about 10 months now. It seems that there are a bunch of people that are RIA curious lately. I have about 3-4000 rounds through it and thought it was due for a range report and today shot 380 rounds through it in 95 degree weather for a class (PPIH). As I watched guns malfunction around me all day, especially 1911s I became acutely aware at how ridiculously solid the RIA 1911 is. I witnessed the following guns have malfunction after malfunction. 1911s: Colt, Springfield, Para Ordnance (worst of the...

Rock Island Armory M200 Revolver Range Report

Rock Island Armory Revolver – M200 Most of you know that I’m a fanatic about my RIA 1911. I learned a while back that there was a Rock Island Armory revolver, in fact, two different models. After a short visit to my LGS, I had one on order. I don’t have much experience with wheel guns, but will do my best to present a nonbiased review. I paid $229 + tax. Cheaper online, but I like to give my business to my favorite gun store. Initial Impressions It’s simple and spartan in its look. I have read reviews that...

Stoeger P-350

Found a good deal on a used Stoeger P-350.  Somebody had done a horrible paint job, which allowed me to get it for dirt cheap.  Had the gunsmith sandblast it, DuraCoat it and put a front bead on.  Turned out great.  Shot it yesterday, and it functioned perfectly. [nggallery...
