Getting Fit

One of the best things you can do to improve your shooting is to get physically fit.

I have lost over a hundred pounds as part of my fitness efforts.

I am amazed how much better holsters feel. My shooting is better and I am happier in general.

--I recommend it!

I Love Scifi Guns

This May Be the Most Accurate Han Solo Blaster Replica Ever Created.

--My birthday's coming up. Just sayin...

Mag selection

I love my 300 Blackout. I have found my favorite subsonic ammo. There is one thing I worry about, now that I have had this rig for a while. Feeding it the wrong ammo.

Now to make sure I load the 300BO ammo in only metal mags. It's not that the metal mags function better, look better or feed better.

They look and feel different.

Even in the dark I can tell the difference.

--I love this can. I want them on everything now.

New Addition: KRISS Vector 9mm

I never liked the whole brace concept. SBR paperwork has been filled out. Got to get some passport photos today.

Fun stuff. Another addition to my Scifi collection. (guns that appear in Scifi movies and TV)

Here is a list of people that hate you.

Everytown announces list of 130 authors pledged to fight gun violence. 

The gun control group backed by former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced a new initiative last week designed to “harness the power of the literary community to amplify the gun safety movement.”

Everytown for Gun Safety—the largest gun violence prevention non-profit in the country with more than three million supporters has joined with a consortium of acclaimed authors to launch the Everytown Authors Council.

Enjoy your unintended consequences.

--Thanks for the list of purchases to avoid.
