There seems to be rise in soon to be first time female gun owners asking for advice on a first handgun. Rather than continuing to provide advice from my perspective, I’m going to share my wife’s top picks.
Just an average Joe who loves to geek out on firearm mechanics and ballistics.
Have you considered or do you carry a .44 Magnum revolver for self defense? If so, have you considered the differences between .44 Special and .44 Magnum for self defense applications. I’ve given it some thought and here are my opinions.
This is possibly my worst review so far. Mostly because I have just a hair more than zero experience with body armor. Even so, these are my first impressions on the AR500 Armor Testudo Gen 2 and their Level III+ body armor.
The Smith & Wesson 329PD revolver is something else. It’s also a stunning extremely smooth shooting revolver with .44 Special. It’s a stunning wrist punishing beast perfect for those who hate their hands/wrists with .44 Remington Magnum.
The Kimber Hunter Pro (exclusive to Cabela’s) chambered for 6.5mm Creedmoor is a really light, accurate, and easy to shoot bolt-action rifle. Even though we ran into some issues, Kimber made it right, and seems like this rifle is ready for next deer season.
Purchasing a silencer is quite involved. It takes time, money, and a bit of legal gymnastics in addition to passing background checks. Yes, there is more than one background check involved. Still, it’s not an impossible task.
It’s time to add up to $25 worth of goodness to the budget survival kit. This month I’m adding a water filtration system.
Making the most of a firearms training course isn’t rocket science. Just make sure to bring the required equipment. If possible, add a few extras to maximize comfort and avoid circumstances that could prevent the successful completion of the course.
Ever heard about lighter faster bullets having flatter trajectories? How about heavier bullets are less prone to wind drift? I have and want to know if bullet weight really matters.
Here is a comparison between the .308 Winchester, .300 Winchester Magnum, and the .338 Winchester Magnum for hunting applications.
