Why I Don’t Like Fiber-Optic Sights

I seem to be in a minority. A lot of shooters seem to really like fiber-optic sights, but I don’t. Not even a little, and this post will explore that a bit. The main reason I don’t like them: consistency. This really hit home with me during some shooting with the 10mm GP100. Continue reading “Why I Don’t Like Fiber-Optic Sights”

Etekcity Ultralight Camping Stove Review

Somehow, I have found the time to do a bit of camping this summer. I like getting out just for the sake of getting out, but I also like messing around with gear. My next personal cooking stove review is also in the budget line: the $12 Etekcity Ultralight personal camping stove. Continue reading “Etekcity Ultralight Camping Stove Review”

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”

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”

Gun(s) That Got Away Part II: Mike

If you’re a RevolverGuy, you’ve got one. A story, that is, about “the one that got away.”   Actually, if you’re like me, you probably have several, but there’s one that just nags at you more than the rest, and which probably says more about you and your tastes than all the others. As I sit here thinking about it, there’s a handful of lost ballistic opportunities that still sting.  Some of them were mine for the asking, others were just long shots, but all of them make me wonder, “what if?”

The Zero Tolerance 0620

I thought that finding a replacement blade for my beloved Emerson CQC-7 would be difficult. Turns out, it might not be that hard after all. The very first candidate I picked up was pretty near perfect: the Zero Tolerance 0620. This knife has a heck of a lot going for it, but if you want one, I’m afraid I have some bad news… Continue reading “The Zero Tolerance 0620”
