I’ve always treated my snub revolvers as pocket guns, but when the time came to review the Kimber K6s DC, there was something about it that screamed for a belt holster. It was probably the 6th round that got me thinking about it as a legitimate “belt gun,” but the excellent sights and trigger helped seal the deal. Even though it’s a small-frame gun, the K6s shoots like a medium-frame snub, and it deserved a good belt rig.
The Kimber K6s revolver was introduced at the 2016 SHOT Show, and while I got to handle it in the Kimber booth, I didn’t get to shoot it until the following year’s Media Day at the Range. That first cylinder full convinced me that I was holding a very special gun, and would need to spend more time with it in the future. Continue reading “The Kimber K6s DC: Notes From The Field”
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”
The world of moon clips was fairly intimidating one for me until recently. When thinking of moon clips, I mostly pictured ultra-modern competitors with dozens of clips arrayed around a fancy shooting belt. . . or WWII-vintage revolvers. Of course that all changed when the 10mm GP100 came along. This gave me a legitimate motivation to learn more about them. Knowing enough to know that I don’t know what I don’t know, I reached out to an expert: Tom over at TK Custom. Tom was happy to provide some TK Custom moon clips and the associated tools to get started properly. Continue reading “TK Custom Moon Clips and Moon Clip Tools”
This week I’m taking the opportunity to re-post show notes from Across The Peak Episode 8, which aired last week. If you haven’t checked us out yet, I want to give you an idea of what you’re missing, as well as show off a few pictures of my dog. Enjoy! Continue reading “ATP E008: How to Train a Dog”
The 10mm Auto is one of those cartridges with the capacity to capture the imagination like few others. Daydreams of charging feral pigs, scarcely trod trails, and pine-perfumed air are nearly inescapable when handling a 10mm. I fell under this spell years ago, and managed to break free for awhile…until the 10mm GP100 came along. The Centimeter GP was a pleasant surprise; I had given up hope of owning a duty-sized wheelgun in BESTmm. Handling and shooting this versatile revolver stokes a handgunner’s imagination like few other revolvers and suffice to say, I am a fan. This field report will explain why.

The Pat Rogers Memorial Revolver Roundup is just around the corner! Unfortunately I won’t be able to attend this year’s Roundup, but I do want to make sure that everyone here knows about it. The course will feature some absolute top-notch instruction, the opportunity to see some really sweet revolvers, and the chance to rub shoulders with a bunch of other RevolverGuys. If there’s one revolver event to go to, this is probably it! I don’t want to re-invent the wheel (pun totally intended), and I couldn’t describe it any better, so here is the description of the course from the Eventbrite page: Continue reading “Training Opportunity: Rogers Memorial Revolver Roundup”
Early this year I wrote that my goal was to attend at least two professional training sessions by year’s end. After attending Competition Handgun back in May, I am happy to report that I recently completed my two-course goal with Chuck Haggard’s Practical Revolvers. Though this class was only a day long (and was cut short by rain) I was thoroughly impressed. I also have a request for you guys, so please read all the way to the end.
In case you didn’t catch it, Mike Wood made another outstanding appearance on the American Warrior Show a couple of weeks ago! Continue reading “Mike Wood on the American Warrior Show, Part II”
I recently had one of the more obscure revolver malfunctions: the under-the-extractor-star malfunction. It didn’t happen anywhere bad. It wasn’t during a competition, it certainly wasn’t in a gunfight, and it didn’t even inconvenience one of my range sessions. It happened while I was cleaning the grit and gunk from the darling of my collection, my 686-3. Continue reading “The Under-The-Extractor-Star Malfunction”
