Knife attacks

Are you too old?


I'm sorry dear reader that I've been away for a few months. Life has been hectic, and you all weren't here a couple of months, so this article might be a bit dated.


Like some of you, I did the Tough Mudder event this year at Heartland Park. My brother and I run a lot of 5k obstacle runs, and even some longer courses, but this one was clearly head and shoulders above the rest in term...

Gear setup

This month's article is going to address something that bothers me every time we go to the range. Okay, let me modify that, this subject drives me nuts almost daily. Gear set up. Specifically I'm talking about any protective equipment worn (IBA, plate carrier, etc.) that holds your extra mags, IFAK, flashlight, Skittles, and any other tacti-cool thing you want or need.

New Year's Resolutions

Since you are reading this, it would appear we survived the end of the world. I'm fairly disappointed, as I really wanted to fight zombies, and other critters!

Another year has passed, and I know for myself, it's been a very busy year. My kid has been growing leaps and bounds, and we've been busier than ever. I'm s...

The worst possible time.

Each of us probably has thought about reacting to some unforeseen event, (or threat) that requires us to spring into action in a moment's notice. When we do think of this "SHTF" moment, we all see in our minds eye, that we come out th...

they went "training". Now I know, some people use the term "shooting"

Bug Out Bags

Already this spring, we have seen disastrous storms rip though our part of the state.  With this in mind, I want to take this month’s article in a somewhat different direction.  While I do stray off the firearms topic from time to time, most of you understand that I always try to write about something related to safety and security. 


Let’s start out with what a Bug Out B...
