Why the Greek Elections are so Dangerous

On Sunday, the people of Greece voted in a radical leftist party with communist roots. The fact is, for the Syriza party this was an easy sell to the people of Greece because the party promised to end the austerity measures and get back to the “good life” of spending a bunch of money the […]

Yesterday was SHOT Show Media Day. SHOT Show is the Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade Show. The best way to describe the tradeshow is that it’s Disneyland for gun owners.

Carrying in the Cold in Jackson Hole

My family and I spent Christmas in a cabin just outside of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. We had a beautiful white Christmas although it was freezing.

How to Break In a New Holster

How to Break In a New Holster

I’m always in search of the “perfect” holster, which means I’ve literally accumulated an entire box of holsters (that’s overflowing) in my closet.

Gun Golfing

Gun Golfing

I hate golfing. To me, it’s a terribly boring sport that I have no interest in. One time, friends talked me into playing a round of golf and I was ready to smash my club into a thousands pieces after just a few holes. However, there’s a new “sport” I love and I’m calling it […]

Do Guns Accidentally Go Off?

Do Guns Accidentally Go Off?

In the news, you often hear stories about someone shooting themselves in the leg (or somewhere else) and claiming that the gun “somehow” went off.
