Week 34. Well, no super great deals for Black Friday. Which is technically good for the trending data (since we don’t want the data skewed), but not as good for people looking for bargains. That said, a number of you have mentioned the use of search engines for [Read More…]

6.5mm “Patriot Combat Cartridge”

One thing I have not yet gotten into is reloading, and I know very little about the manufacture of such things. I mean, I know how a round is constructed, but doing it, and further, innovating, is beyond my current skill set. I find things like fire forming and case [Read More…]

Week 33. 500 rounds of 9mm for under $100 at SG Ammo–that is the cheapest I’ve seen in a while. Other than that, not a whole lot of changes. Hopefully next week we will see some “Black Friday Deals”… We do appreciate the support and [Read More…]

12 Ga Confetti Ammo

Tactical Fan Boy posted this up. Firequest has a 12 Ga round that is loaded with powder and confetti. This ammo is for theatrics and serious amusement! The shell is packed with powder and colored confetti. When shot, it will make a large circle in the air between 10 and [Read More…]
