Hey guys, two things real quick:
First, thanks to Mike (not Mike Wood) and Mike (Mike Wood), I’m turning comments back on for new articles for the foreseeable future. With everyone stuck at home I want to put this platform back in place.
Second, I’m trying to churn out 5-6 articles/week over at Swift/Silent/Deadly, also because folks are stuck at home, looking for stuff to do. If you’re looking for something to read, there’s a lot of new stuff over there. I’m also trying to teach some stuff over there. I would post it here, but most of it’s not revolver-related, but all of it is interesting!
Since publishing my last article on Zeta6 products I have been in touch with Zeta6’s owner, Michael Lyle. Michael is a unique guy in that he is always willing to accept input on his products. Today I’m going to look at his extensively modified J-Strip, the SYM-Strip, and a product yet to be seen in these pages: the Zeta6 K-PAK. Continue reading “The Zeta6 K-PAK and J-STRIP Update”
As you guys know, I recently had the opportunity to spend a couple of months working with the Henry Big Boy Steel Carbine. This gun is heavily advertised as a hunting rifle, but I couldn’t overlook the self/home/farm-defense potential of this handy little carbine. Today I want to share just a few thoughts about using the Henry Big Boy Steel Carbine as a self-defense tool. I’m going to meander over some general lever-gun stuff, as well as some specifics of the Henry. If you’re interested in my full review of the carbine itself, you can check it out here.

A while back a reader reached out to me asking if I was aware of RIMZ moon clips. I wasn’t, so I reached out to Denny Bennett, the proprietor. Denny set me up with a few editorial samples of his RIMZ EZ moon clips. I must say, I’m quite impressed. Continue reading “RIMZ EZ Moon Clips”

I’m sure some of you have noted the inability to comment on articles. It was with mixed emotions that I decided to permanently close RevolverGuy’s comments. There are two primary reasons for this, and I’ll attempt to explain them here. Continue reading “Comments Permanently Closed”
I carry every day and my guns get filthy. It’s amazing how much lint and gunk can build up on them, and It’s a non-stop job to keep them clean and lubricated. As a result, I’ve gotten into the habit of cleaning and inspecting them monthly (and sometimes more frequently, if conditions require).

The basic operation of a double action revolver is pretty simple and straightforward, but there’s still a lot of room for operator technique. This is certainly true when it comes to reloading the revolver in an emergency. Continue reading “Speedloader Tips and Techniques”
This is just a quick dispatch on something I’ve been considering lately. I will be succinct and to the point. I will make some of you angry, and others uncomfortable. That’s not my goal, but it’s probably a realistic outcome. Let’s talk about “entertrainment.” Rather, let’s talk about how we’ve come to view it.
