Ammo Prices: 12/05/2014

Week 35. A lot of prices are up this week–must be pre-holiday price raising. Still, ammo makes a great Christmas/Hanukkah/[Insert Holiday of Choice]/etc. gift, and with the lower gas prices, maybe there is some extra cash to put toward shooting… We do [Read More…]

Ammo Prices: 11/28/2014

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…]

Ammo Prices: 11/21/2014

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…]

Ammo Prices: 10/24/2014

Week 29. I hope you didn’t miss the break last week too much. I was out of pocket, enjoying Lake Bridgeport in Texas, without internet. It doesn’t look like the prices of ammo collapsed or skyrocketed in my absence. I did find some .22LR for $0.07/rd, but [Read More…]

France’s WWI “Ruby”

Before the outbreak of WWI, France had not prioritized the adoption of a reliable pistol.  The Model 1892 service revolver was found adequate in those pre-modern engagements.  With the onset of trench warfare, however, the advantages of a larger capacity, faster [Read More…]

Ammo Prices: 10/03/2014

Week 27. Okay. So based on an equal number of votes for each (that would be 2 votes) between .357 mag/.38spc, .30-06, and keeping 300BLK, what I am going to do is this. I’ll keep 300BLK as it takes really no work (it’s not very useful for trending but has a [Read More…]

SIG 716, SIG MCX and SIG 556 Xi: An Afternoon Of New Rifles At The SIG Academy

When we arrived at the SIG Academy and saw all of the stacked hard rifle cases at our range we had a pretty good idea this was going to be a fun and informative afternoon. We weren’t wrong either! There were suppressed MCX multi caliber carbines, the SIG 556 [Read More…]
