With all the growth in gun ownership in the first half of 2020, I’ve seen several people encourage new gun owners to get professional training while others suggest it’s not necessary. I’m all for getting some training, the post explains why.
I can’t imagine anyone suggesting that cleaning and maintaining firearms is silly and unnecessary. At the same time, I’m certain that others have different suggestions in regards to what is sufficient and necessary. Here is what I do. Most of the time.
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.

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.
