“… we have been training leaders who only know how to keep the routine going. Who can answer questions, but don’t know how to ask them. Who can fulfill goals, but don’t know how to set them. Who think about how to get things done, but not whether they’re worth doing in the first place.” […]
Tired. This is all I am posting this evening. Nightforce BEAST and ATACR.
Turtle Skin Turtle Skin manufactures a variety of protective equipment: body armor, gloves, snake protection, etc. The BladeTect shirt caught my eye initially. It’s like a lightweight chain mail to minimize the threat against blades and sharp cuts. It’s also breathable and appears/feels it would be comfortable to wear. Also photographed below are Snake Gaiters, […]
Via New York Times, by MICHAEL D. SHEAR and PETER BAKER White House officials described the plan unveiled by Mr. Obama and Mr. Biden on Wednesday as a comprehensive effort that includes four major legislative proposals and 23 separate executive actions aimed at protecting “our children and our communities” by reducing the amount of gun […]
Derek discovers black & white photos make crappy photos look better.
This is the coolest year I’ve encountered in Las Vegas, NV. I must admit, however, I’m not a very good barometer to determine what cold really is. I was prepared, so I managed quite well. Minus 33 Merino wool base layer, Ice Breaker Merino wool t-shirt, silk sock liner, Darned Tough Merino wool socks, Triple […]
Please recall the negative attention Mr. Helinski of Guns America received last year. I didn’t take offense; therefore, made no comment on the matter. However, I do question if there will be stringent protocols in place to differentiate qualified media professionals from nobodies. Below is an email I received offering free shirts for “writers, bloggers, […]
After a year long hiatus from blogging, and sparse photography, hiking, and all other things I consider fun, I needed a pseudo-reset with nature. Notwithstanding personal fulfillment, the absence of nature was noticeably affecting my mood. Lesson learned to not avoid taking personal outdoor day trips every now and then. Work/life balance – right? Visited […]
For awhile, I contemplated on a second vehicle; a truck for more utility and because truck. A while back, I drove a Nissan 1985 pickup and a 1993 Toyota SR5 pickup. They were a blast – both were reliable junker trucks that took a beating and I wasn’t self conscious about the worn dull, rusty […]
Among the firearms I took out recently was a Ruger SR22. If you recall, I posted a short disassembly video of the SR22 from SHOT Show 2012. I finally purchased one this week. Probably my first new handgun purchase in awhile. First several rounds seem to have POI consistency issues; however, after about 100 rounds, […]

Stronghold is discontinuing their holsters – we have a lot of items in stock and available for immediate shipment. Please contact us if you need something for Christmas! Discounted Prices! I wrote a review of the Stronghold holsters awhile back. Now […]
Spring Pizza. It’s fall. Don’t care. Used a wheat/white flour mix for the dough.
I relocated: – Moved all of my junk. – Planted a Trident Maple and two Shangtung Maple trees. – Had vinyl plank flooring installed. Stripped and reinstalled floor boards. – Bought a new bed (so damn comfortable). – Installed new door knobs, strike plates and deadbolts (ASSA brand). – Installed pendant light with three-way switches.
