In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they’re not. In theory I should be able to carry a speedloader reload for my wheelgun and use it effectively. Over the last 28 or 30 months, I’ve spent a massive amount of time thinking about reloading the revolver. I’ve worked with just about every speedloader on the market (and some that aren’t), and I’ve spent a good amount of time working with reloading techniques. And I’ve used a bunch of speedloader pouches, including some that haven’t yet been reviewed here. Continue reading “IWB Speedloader Pouches”
The article below is copied and pasted from Active Response Training with the permission of its author, Greg Ellifritz. I read this when it originally came out, and I read it again last week when Greg reposted it. I am reposting it here not only because Greg speaks my mind, but because articles of this sort get way too little attention. To be honest this is why I shy away from political discussion generally – I’m sick of American turning on American and our collective inability to carry on a reasonable conversation about any domestic policy issue.

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. Continue reading “Flying with Firearms: American Airlines BSO”
Yesterday I joined Tom Gresham on Gun Talk Radio to talk about “the year of the revolver!” As Tom and I discussed, 2017 has seen a ton of new interest in revolvers, as evidenced by RevolverGuy.com and others. We chatted about how I got into revolvers, new revolvers on the market, Lobo Gunleather, and whether or not RevolverGuy.com will ever cover single-action revolvers! Check it out HERE!
