Fat White Man has posted photos of his new Gun Room. What a nice setup! I am very jealous. He even has a gun woodwork area for stock work!
Vote for David has written a detailed tutorial on producing great looking photos of a gun bores like the photo below. I highly recommend reading it. Beautiful!
I am often asked by readers how they can get a job in the firearms industry but since I have never worked in the industry I cannot offer any advice. Frederic emailed me a link to a recruitment company called Shooting Search that specializes in the “shooting, [Read More…]
Thanks to Sven for sending it through.
I think I visibly shuddered when I watched this video (It is safe for work). The video was taken at one of James Yeager’s Tactical Response Fighting Pistol classes. The photographer seen forward of the firing line is Jay Gibson, one of the Tactical Response [Read More…]
I have a fluid dynamics question that I am very keen to ask an engineer or physicists. If you are able to run some numbers through that fancy modeling software you people have, that would be great. I would publish your answer on the blog, with full credit given to you. [Read More…]
Bitter has written an interesting post about the firearms and outdoor industry and the New Media. In short they are clueless (of course if you work in the industry and read blogs, then he is not talking about you).
I rarely watch The Daily Show but I got a good laugh from this video. The biggest joke of course is that its all true. Much better than The Onion’s take on guns. Thanks to Sven for the link.

Kellene, who blogs at Woman of Caliber, gives the ladies some tips on range attire … Ladies, let’s face it. Given that there are very few female firearm instructors, no one has come right out and provided sound “fashion” advice to women for their trips to [Read More…]
I have loads of work this upcoming week and will be working very late everyday. I will be unable to blog until Tuesday 26 May After this work is complete I won’t need to take a blogging break for quite a while. I hate taking breaks, I feel so behind everything [Read More…]

Good news. I will be back at the blog tomorrow. – Steve

Seen at SayUncle. I am at a loss for words, two of my favorite things, guns and meat, combined Now if somebody would design a nice leather holster for it … Hat Tip: UberGizmo
No posts till I get back.
Not well (nothing serious). Will be back blogging tomorrow.
Tam shared her wisdom on the topic of not giving away your position. In short she says that unless you plan on ambushing a military opponent you don’t need to worry about the bad guy seeing your night sights. She makes a good point, although when hunting this is a [Read More…]

It is time for another poll. I will be voting “have already brought a gun this year”
A few days ago I blogged about the new Scout Sniper Observation Telescope. I said it would use the Horus reticle. According to Allen, a Marine vet and analyst at The Columbia Group, The Marines will be using a standard Gen II Mil-Dot reticle, not the Horus reticle. As [Read More…]
