Loading Your Magazines

Loading Your Magazines

Anyone spending time at the range has had to load multiple magazines, and doing it by hand, especially if you are loading the magazine to max capacity, can get painful on the tumb and other parts of your hand over the course of the day. Before you watch the two videos though, I'll give you the short version. If you're short on space, don't want to buy multiple loaders for your type of ammo, want something that is compact, mechanically simple, and can be used at the range or at home for loading 9mm, .45ACP, anything in between, or AR-15…

"Love" and "Hate"

It's no news to those of us here, the left hates us. The left pushes the worst form of depracity though, and not only expects you to "accept" it, but you must approve it.Again, not news.That said, it's worth noting that, and as Aurini explores the background on why, the gap is growing and getting more extreme. The left truly is losing their mind. This article starts with two premises: first, that political orientation is substantially influenced by personality, specifically the Big Five Personality Traits; this is a premise which has been thoroughly studied, and should not be…

A PSA

A PSA

Nope, not a public service announcement. Given my proclivities, and the banner image, even if it was, it wouldn't be a "guns R bad mmmkay" kindof thing.Instead, I wanted to shed some light on what I consider one of the better budget manufacturers of AR-platform rifles. Palmetto State Armory.Now, you're not going to get a JP Rifles Cazador special out of these guys, but what you will get is a solidly mid-grade rifle at upper end "commercial" / sport/intro - tier prices. Their $700 firearms, often on sale for $500 or less, and even less if you don't…

"Once"

"Once"

The Mountain that writes has written once again, this time on the topic of a stupid Senator who was "joking" about nuking American citizens, and the memes that followed. Of course the congressman is now saying that using nuclear weapons on American gun owners was an exaggeration, he just wanted to rhetorically demonstrate that the all-powerful government could crush us peasants like bugs, they hold our pathetic lives in their iron hand, and he’d never ever advocate for the use of nuclear weapons on American soil (that would be bad for the environment!), and instead he merely wants to…

A Cup of Awesome

A Cup of Awesome

I've always enjoyed the mad geniuses at Black Rifle Coffee since I caught wind of them via a trailer for "Range 15". Then I got a note on their black Friday sale for swag and coffee, and featured prominently not only a tank and helicopter, but what appeared to be a Prius.With a minigun on top.Now, these guys are that special kind of crazy so part of me was "No way, that must be photoshopped" and part of me was "No way, that is awesome." So I checked.Sure enough, they did it.Among other steps: Step 6:…

Self Defense, and Writing About It

Self Defense, and Writing About It

Ben Cheah, author of the fantastic No Gods Only Daimons, reviews Marc MacYoung’s series on writing about fighting. I believe I’ve mentioned the site nononsenseselfdefense.com before. It’s dated, marginally organized, but utterly invaluable in its insights. Writing Violence 1: Getting Shot is all about surviving a two-way shooting range–or not. More than just a technical discussion of the effects of gunshot wounds, MacYoung shows how experienced and inexperienced characters would react, tactics characters would use in certain situations, and skewers common Hollywood myths. Writing Violence 2: Getting Stabbed covers the art of the knife–and,…

Warning and Educating Our Enemies

Warning and Educating Our Enemies

As Vox Day recently pointed out, “conservatives” love to instruct our enemy, better yet, warn them off because, hey, this time we’ll enforce consequences, if you keep this up. Yeah. Look, I actually respect what Crowder does with his “change my mind” segments, but he’s doing more than just instructing liberals on how awful the left really is – he’s staking out moral ground behind enemy lines, raising the morale of other right wingers, and battering down the misconceptions a number of people have, and thus actually gaining a few converts. You know, carrot to stick, but he’…
