I have been a little down on the concealed carry revolver lately. There are a lot of compromises to be made when selecting a revolver for everyday carry and I won’t rehash them here. There is one role in which the revolver shines, however. The home defense revolver suffers from very few of the problems that plague the everyday carry revolver. This post will take a look at a few of these benefits. Continue reading “In Praise of the Home Defense Revolver”
We all have that story. The story about “that gun.” The one that got away. The one that we should have walked out the door with. The reasons we didn’t pick them up might vary a little but usually go something along the lines of, “at the time $300 was a lot of money…” Believe me, I’ve been there. Mike Wood and I were chatting the other day and decided to write up an article or two about “The Guns That Got Away!” Mike and Steve Tracy will talk about their “ones” in the coming weeks, but these are mine.

The 40th annual Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show was held at the Sands Expo Center inside the Venetian resort in Las Vegas this past January 2018. The massive event was attended by over 60,000 industry professionals and two of your RevolverGuy cohorts. Mike Wood certainly looked professional, especially at the Kimber shooting range stall as he took notes from Kimber’s engineers. This was my seventh SHOT Show, so at least I was able to keep the huge grin off my face…most of the time. Let’s make it at least 60,002 professionals.

I am both a coffee drinker and SOF veteran, so my interest is always piqued when I run across a company that has an interest in both. I recently reached out to Black Rifle Coffee Company, asking if I could do a review of their coffee. They got back in touch with me in short order and said it would be no problem. I know most of you probably aren’t interested in reading about me doing sometime I do four times a day (drink coffee) but I tried to have a little fun with this one, so check it out!

My first gun, not surprisingly, was a .22 rifle. That seems to be where most of us start out, because it’s a lot easier to teach a youngster how to shoot a rifle than it is a handgun. I always had a lot of fun with that rifle, but the time came when I wanted to shoot a handgun, instead. I didn’t know it quite yet, but I was ready to take my first steps as a RevolverGuy.

If you’re a Revolver Guy, you should know that Mike Wood was recently the guest of Mike Seeklander on the American Warrior Show. Mike was invited on to talk about the Newhall Shooting and he did a fantastic job. If you haven’t heard it, check it out HERE. And if you don’t know what the American Warrior Show is, keep reading!

Ok, ok – they aren’t revolvers but 1911s are still pretty cool. A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to meet Aaron from the In the Rabbit Hole Urban Survival Podcast. I was in his neck of the woods so we met up and the talk turned to firearms. As it happens, Aaron has never owned a 1911, and I have owned a bunch and carried them in combat, so…we decided to record an episode. If you want to hear me ramble on about old guns (that aren’t revolvers) check it out HERE!

You might’ve noticed I’ve been a bit absent from the blog lately. That will change, but several things are going on. My day-job is keeping me very, very busy lately and I’m working on some bigger Revolver Guy projects that are taking longer to finish than most. To give you guys something to look at (and assure you guys Mike and I haven’t abandoned RevolverGuy.com for some sleek, head-turning, young self-loader) here are a couple links to some reading material: Continue reading “Article on Lucky Gunner and other RG Reading”
I recently wrote about Delta Airlines’ “CAGPT” program and my experience with it. Since I frequently fly with firearms, I am going to make an effort to catalog my experiences. My most recent flight was with American Airlines. While not quite as bad as my experience with Delta, the American Airlines BSO tag doesn’t make me feel much better.
