Ruger Vaquero 45 Colt

Ruger Vaquero 45 Colt – Review

The Ruger Vaquero combines the original Old West single-action look and feel with mew features. The mid-size steel frame and cylinder are scaled-down to the same size as the original 1955 Ruger Blackhawk®, closely resembling the classic single-action revolvers of the late 1800’s. I have a soft spot for old action revolvers.  Aside from the […]

Reflection on Progress

Almost three years ago, I wrote this post on a new job.  If anyone were to ask me if I was overly optimistic during my first few months, I would have said, “Hell yes.”  Nonetheless, I have a new level of appreciation for a vulnerable population of society; people who don’t or no longer have […]

Ruger LCR .38 Special +P Review

“The Ruger Lightweight Compact Revolver (LCR), a 13.5 ounce, small frame revolver with a smooth, easy-to-control trigger and highly manageable recoil. Packed with the latest technological advances and features required by today’s most demanding shooters.” I thought very little about carrying or owning a polymer revolver when the LCR series was released about two years […]

Smith & Wesson M&P 9mm

Smith & Wesson M&P 9mm – A Transformational Overview

It appears history does not favor the Smith & Wesson semi-automatic M&P. Reliability appears to be dismal; five generations of strikers, repeatable failures to extract, trigger fails to reset, involuntary magazine drops, etc. After preliminary research and discussion with M&P owners, I wondered why these pistols were still sought after. Check out this 28 page […]

Sig Sauer P239 9mm – A Brief Evaluation

The nature of my current employment arguably provided me Good Cause to carry concealed in Sacramento County.  I sought advise from professionals to go about applying for a CCW and was receptive to their guidance.

CMMG Conversion vs. Model1 Sales Dedicated .22LR AR15 – A Review

I’ve been very happy with the Model1 Sales dedicated .22LR upper.  It’s a 20″ bull barrel with national match front and rear sights.  Works quite well for Appleseed events and regular plinking.  However, I’ve had my eye on Spike’s tactical dedicated uppers for quite sometime.  You know. For the “modular” look and feel; 16″ barrel, […]

First 56 rounds

T’was a great day to go shooting.  I shot through 40 rounds of 175gr Federal Gold Medal .308 Winchester introducing myself to the MIL/MIL adjustments. Luckily, Mike from CS Gunworks was shooting at Sacramento Valley Shooting Center today.  Under his guidance, my zero stop is now set.  I shot through what I had left of […]

Shooting Trap with the M6 Scout

Okay. It didn’t work quite as well as I wanted to. It was a relatively short trip and I only brought the Winchester Super Speed Xtra game loads. At 16 yards, I couldn’t hit anything. I should have brought the Federal and Remington variety to try those out. Maybe the choke on this barrel is […]

Springfield M6 Scout – An Overview

M6 Carry Bag M6 Scout Assembly Tip Carrying a conventional weapon may not be feasible when every ounce counts inside a backpack or the space provided isn’t ideal. Compactness, durability, and lightweight are important elements on a survival rifle. While it must withstand the user’s environment when stowed away or used to procure food, it […]

Kimber .22LR 1911 Conversion – A Review

As much as I love my 1911 and the .45 ACP round, I still maintain that it’s VERY expensive to train with. Quite frankly, my shooting has been limited until I can afford a reloader. I’ve been saving for a progressive, but I just might borrow a single stage to get myself started. I digress. […]

Smith & Wesson Model 10-14

I received this S&W Model 10-14 through a trade a while back. This is partially the reason why I no longer have my my Springfield TRP. I don’t have a whole lot of information on this particular dash 14 model, but I’ve read that this model derived from the “work horse” of all S&W models. […]
