PSA: .40 S&W in the 10mm GP100 Revolver

Since its unexpected introduction, I’ve seen a lot of articles and video reviews of the Ruger GP100 in 10mm. I’m not going to mention any names, but many of these have casually mentioned that you can shoot .40 S&W in the 10mm GP100. A couple articles from well-respected outlets have even cited the caliber as “10mm/.40 S&W” in the specifications (Ruger’s own specifications make no such claim).

The Biggest Little Roundgun: The 3-Inch Kimber K6s

It is no secret to regular readers that I have been dying to get my hands on the 3-inch Kimber K6s. Thanks once again to the hard work of Mike and Steve, I finally got my chance to test out this revolver.

Personal Stoves: Ohuhu Camp Stove Review

It has been quite a while since I reviewed a personal camp stove. I recently went camping and pulled out a couple of stoves, so it feels  like a good time to get back into that. Today I’m going to review the stove I used in my Black Rifle Coffee review: the Ohuhu camp stoveContinue reading “Personal Stoves: Ohuhu Camp Stove Review”

Revolver Competition Gear – Competition Handgun I

If you haven’t read my AAR of Mike Seeklander’s Competition Handgun I, go check it out. I decided to cover equipment separately so as not to distract from the review of the excellent course. This post will cover the revolver competition gear used during the course. Continue reading “Revolver Competition Gear – Competition Handgun I”

AAR: Mike Seeklander’s Competition Handgun I

I recently had the opportunity to attend Mike Seeklander’s Competition Handgun I. This two-day course is designed to train the techniques taught in Mike’s book, Your Competition Handgun Training Program. The coolest part of this course was that the two-day training concluded with an optional third-day at a large IDPA match. Even if you have no interest in competition there is a lot to be gained from this course. Continue reading “AAR: Mike Seeklander’s Competition Handgun I”

Panic Now: Building An Ammo Inventory

I have always been the guy that keeps just a little ammo on hand and buys more as he shoots it. Until a couple of years ago, that is. During the last election cycle (and during most of President Obama’s administration) ammo was expensive. At times it was ridiculously expensive. Some ammo – especially defensive ammo – was extremely hard to find. This made me realize I needed to maintain a decent ammo inventory. Continue reading “Panic Now: Building An Ammo Inventory”

Centimeter Revolver: Ruger 10mm GP100 Part I

Despite my recent daily-carry conversion, I love revolvers. I also think revolvers chambered for rimless pistol cartridges are downright neat. And, it just so happens, I am a long-time fan of the 10mm Auto. So it was no surprise that I almost jumped out of my seat when I opened an email from Mike containing a press release from Ruger. The Ruger 10mm GP100 Match Champion had just been released! Barely ninety seconds passed before I emailed my contact at Ruger…

RG101: The Universal Revolver Reload

Revolvers require a lot of reloading. Through the course of a range session you’ll have to reload about three times as often as your Glock-toting counterparts. You could look at this as an inconvenience or a blessing in disguise. I am more inclined to the latter. Since you have to reload a lot, you’ve got a lot of chances to practice your reloading technique. Today I’m going to talk about my favorite reloading technique: the Universal Revolver Reload.
