Nighthawk Custom Carry 5K Range Report

Eleven months ago I posted a “First Look” at my Nighthawk 1911. I had just 750 rounds on the gun at the time. I have since increased the round-count to just a little over 5,250. I have also carried this gun more or less daily for 10 months (so far). This is a follow-up report on the performance of my Nighthawk Custom carry.

Zeta-6 J-Strip and J-Clip Reloading Devices

Sometimes you know what you’re gonna say before you even begin an article. Other times you think you know what you’re going to say and get surprised. The latter is the case with this article – I had some preconceptions going in, but a little experience turned me completely around. Today we are going to look at two new reloading devices: the J-Strip and the J-Clip from a new company, Zeta-6. Continue reading “Zeta-6 J-Strip and J-Clip Reloading Devices”

Dry Practice Report #20: October 16-31

My first post of this year briefly discussed my goal of doing 3,650 minutes of dry practice in 2019. These posts are mostly for my own accountability. Here are my results to this point in the year. Please read (or scroll) to the end, because I have a couple of questions for the audience here. Continue reading “Dry Practice Report #20: October 16-31”

Happy Halloween 2019

RevolverGuy Steve Tracy sure knows how to get into the spirit! Is that an awesome Jack O’ Lantern or what? Nice job, buddy!

I tried carving a Smith & Wesson pumpkin, but had a hard time installing the key lock on the lid. Ha!

Keep a close watch for ghosts, werewolves, vampires, and other beasties out there. Maybe it wouldn’t be a bad idea to load up your trusty revolver with Silvertips on the big night? Just sayin . . .   ; ^ )

We hope all of you will have a fun and safe Halloween!

 

 

Why RevolverGuy Needs Your Patreon Support

Hey guys, I’m trying to keep these to an absolute minimum, but we really do need your direct support via Patreon. I may have explained why in the past. I want to hit it again, because support is incredibly important to the sustainability of RevolverGuy.  Today I’m going to demonstrate the respect I have for our audience. Instead of emotional appeals, I’m going to open the books and explain directly why your support matters. Continue reading “Why RevolverGuy Needs Your Patreon Support”

AAR: Greg Ellifritz’s Snubnose Revolvers

Last weekend I was at Greg Ellifritz’s “Snubnose Revolvers for CCW/Self-Defense” class in Clarksville, Ohio. I had been looking forward to this class for a long time, and my only disappointment was that Mike couldn’t join me. Today’s post will be an AAR of this class.

The Trials and Tribulations of the RevolverGuy

Like most of you, I anxiously await Mike’s posts. He writes better than me, knows more than I do, and despite being an officer (forgive me, John Basilone) is smarter than me. So naturally I look forward to seeing what comes out of his head and onto the screen. And, like most of you I really enjoyed his recent article on light training loads. But it got me thinking… Continue reading “The Trials and Tribulations of the RevolverGuy”

Wadcutters For Self Defense

I admit it, I’m a bullet nerd. I’ve always been fascinated by ballistics, and particularly terminal ballistics. I enjoy learning about how bullets do their work, and studying the minutiae of expansion, penetration, retained weight, permanent and temporary cavities, testing protocols, and all the numerical measures of bullet performance. Continue reading “Wadcutters For Self Defense”

The DeSantis 2x2x2 Reload Pouch

Recently I’ve gotten several new reloading devices for review, and I’ve spent a good deal of time at the range working with them. Reviews of them are forthcoming, and this article will kick off several weeks of articles about non-speedloader reloading. While I was digging around in a box looking for some items to facilitate all this shooting, I ran across a DeSantis 2x2x2 pouch. Continue reading “The DeSantis 2x2x2 Reload Pouch”
