People have varying opinions on firearms instructors. Some shooters insist there’s no need from an instructor. Whatever they learned from their dad, who learned it from his dad, and was passed down to him by his father is enough education to shoot with. Others feel firearms instructors offer a great deal of insight and knowledge essential for safe shooting. And many feel that some instructors out there aren’t just ignorant know-it-alls…they’re actually unsafe to be around. Case in point, this video depicting the world’s worst firearms instructor showing people all the wrong ways to use a gun. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NX6GKntzJbs No matter where you stand on the issue the simple truth is if you, or someone you love, plans on using a firearms instructor it’s imperative they can be trusted.

Remington 870 owners, it’s time to say hooray. Hooray to the fact there’s a new accessory on the market giving you the opportunity to tote around more ammo without adding significant bulk to your gun. A new piece of equipment coming directly from Remington lets 870 owners pack another round into their magazine tube without the need to switch out the tube itself, or make any expensive modifications to the gun. As many of you are know, the addition of long magazine tubes is nothing new for shotguns. Depending on if it’s legal or not (always check local laws before making modifications to your gun) you can throw any number of extended magazine tubes onto an 870, 1100/11-87 and start toting around some extra rounds. That being said, these extended tubes add extra bulk and can affect the swing weight of the gun. While not the biggest worry in the…

Concealed carry is one the rise in the U.S. Last year alone 4.5 million permits were filed for a concealed weapons permit, an increase of over 215% from 2007. As of this time, it’s believed 6% of Americans carry. Unsurprisingly, with that many people carrying concealed we’re finding there are numerous methods for carrying a weapon being displayed. And with people looking to carry in many different ways, we’re seeing more people carrying in controversial ways too. What do we mean by that? As more and more people carry, we’re seeing an increase in numbers of people who prefer the Mexican style carry. While far from being a racist concealed carry type, the Mexican style carry, or the appendix carry (sans holster) is on the rise for a number of reasons. Hardly any of them good. So let’s talk about Mexican carry, why it’s not racist, and why you might…

If you’re a lover of shotguns, then you’ve likely wondered how you could enjoy shooting them even more.

Like adding a pistol grip, or changing the kind of rounds you’re shooting. But there’s not too much more you can do, despite the fact you’re toying around with accessories like this in the past. So where is there to go from here? Well you could always go silenced…that’s right, throwing a can on the end of your 12 gauge is a great way to make shooting your shotgun that much more fun. The folks over at Guns and Ammo thought so too. And that’s why they decided to test out the Salvo suppressor from SilencerCo out of Utah. And boy did they like what…

Firearms have been around for centuries now. For the most part, the principles guiding firearm design haven’t changed that much. The biggest changes in firearm production usually comes to down to material, and rearrangement in their basic configuration. In the past few hundred years, the principle element for keeping a firearm in great working condition has been the reliance on oil and lubricants. And while firearms haven’t changed that much, there have been some pretty big advancements in lubricant technology over the past few years. In 2017, a new breed of gun oils is now available to enthusiasts. In this blog we’re going to review 4 of the top contenders for “lubricant of the year” (not a real award). Without further ado, let’s break down what makes these gun oils so great. 4 Best Gun Oils Of The Year FireClean One of the biggest concerns for a gun owner should…

While it might seem like a fairly general statement to make, the truth is there are basically 2 kinds of gun owners. Those who buy a gun and never once decide to modify it. And then there are those who buy their guns with the understanding their stock gun can be made better with modifications. As you know, there are all kinds of modifications you can make to a gun so it shoots better…or works with your exact personal needs. Some are as simple as swapping out parts. Others are complex enough that you’ll need to work with a certified gunsmith to pull off. And then, there are modifications that aren’t so complicated they require a gunsmith but aren’t as plain-Jane as swapping out part swaps.
