If you own guns and want to keep them safe from theft or damage, (as well as keeping them out of the reach of young children or untrustworthy individuals), then you know you need a gun safe. Owning a gun safe is the smart thing to do. But owning a safe isn’t as simple as getting a metal box with a lock on it and calling it a day. In fact, there are are some pretty important considerations to make when you’re picking out a gun safe. The purpose of this article isn’t to diagnose every problem with gun safes, but instead, to focus on one of the major failure points of most safes. And that has to do with their fireproofing. Most gun owners who own a safe purchase safes not just to protect their firearms and ammunition, but also to protect other valuables. That being the case, many…

When I first started shooting I could have cared less about MOA and MIL. That’s because as a 12-year-old shooting a .22lr at my church’s summer camp all I knew was if I aimed right that little slug would knock a can off a post every single time. Up until a few years ago, shooting seemed pretty simple. If I wanted to hit my target I lined up my front site with my rear sight and then acquired my sight picture with the target in the middle picture and pulled the trigger. Bang. Hit. Easy. As time went on and I wanted to improve my skills I started moving the targets back a bit. At 100 yard it was pretty much the same thing. Bang. Hit. Easy. But once I went out past 200 yards I realized that no longer could I just place the front sight underneath the target…

When I was 45 years old I headed into my optometrist’s office for a checkup. I was scared. What had begun as a slight annoyance in my vision started to become a worrying inability to focus properly and tell how far away objects were from me. My vision had always been stellar before that. I was the guy who could see the bird sitting in the top of the tree that everyone else swore was just a branch. But with age, my vision had started to fail. It stunk, and I wasn’t about to let failing vision get the best of me so I made that appointment. When the optometrist came in he performed the cursory tests and then went back into his office to look over the results. When he came out he gave me some good news and some bad news. The bad news was the muscles around…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=l1hqu89086k In the history of American firearm manufacturing, no single rifle has sold as well as the Remington 700. Yes, plenty of AR-15s and AR-15 variants have sold in the millions, but many of them are made by different companies and not many are all that similar as the AR-15 is a highly configurable weapon platform. The Remington 700 on the other hand is pretty much a what you see is what you get kind of gun. Available in different finishes, with different barrels, and different chamberings, the Remington 700 doesn’t get all that much more complicated. Not that anybody is upset about the relatively stock, off the shelf usability of the Remington 700. To date more than 8 millions Remington 700s have been sold. So, it’s a fine rifle all by itself. But that didn’t stop the guys over at Magul from doing some work to help improve the…

Have you ever bought something online. Seems like a stupid question because the answer is undoubtedly yes. But if I were to ask you if you bought ammo online the answer might actually be no. Ever since people realized you could legally sell ammo online websites have been slinging brass to people’s doorstep (where legal). Surprisingly though there are dozens and dozens of online ammo retailers millions of Americans have never purchased online. There’s something about the habit of heading down to Walmart or your local gun shop and picking up a few boxes on your way to the range people can’t seem to break. Another reason people don’t buy online is they’re just not sure if it’s a good deal or not. That’s what we want to go over in this article. Is It Really Cheaper? Ammo is expensive. Some would argue it’s too expensive (but that doesn’t stop…

If you believe the rhetoric being spun by the mainstream media you’d think we’re on the verge of a civil war. While far from true, the simple truth is America is not a safe place. Yes, it’s safer than most nations, safer than many developed nations for that matter. But at any time you and those you loved could become unwitting victims to crime. This is especially true of many people who carry concealed on a daily basis. Problematically, many people who buy a gun and decide to carry are woefully unprepared for an attack. They feel as though their decision to carry a pistol automatically precludes them from becoming a victim. And so they walk a little more carefree and let their guard fall a little bit lower than it should. This is why it’s absolutely imperative that the concealed carrier make sure to maintain peak situational awareness. Not…

What’s not to love about an AR-15? They’re affordable, modifiable, are easy to shoot and are quite accurate given their size and the round they use.

Disclaimer: We’ve taken this information from one of the most authoritative shooting websites on the planet and adapted and reproduced it from their site Mastering The Basic Prone Position One of the many problems with shooting an AR-15 in a range, or even outside is most people shoot standing up in a fixed position. This is…

Targets don’t get the kind of attention they deserve. Most of us are fixated on the gear in our hands we neglect the objects we’re shooting. Granted a lot of people wonder why you’d even get much thought to something you’re going to perforate with copper and lead…but the truth is targets can definitely play a big role in improving your shooting. Once upon a time targets were pretty standard. It was paper, or a pop-bottle placed on a wooden post or hung from a tree. Today there are almost as many targets and target makers as there are guns on the market. Well, that might be a bit of an exaggeration, but you get the idea. Look, you don’t have to spend money on targets to become a better shooter. There are plenty of drills you can practice to increase your accuracy and rate of fire… That being said…

In just a few seconds you’ll discover one of the simplest ways to become more tactical. But before you learn it, let’s just talk about something that annoys the heck out of a lot of people. It has to do with how the word tactical sure gets thrown around a lot. Everything is tactical nowadays. Tactical lights, tactical bags, tactical knives, even tactical wedgies (not a real thing). If you were to ask most people in the “tactical” community if they think the word tactical is abused, they’d likely say yes. So what does it mean for something to be tactical? And how are you going to become more tactical by reading a simple blog post? According to those who know (Webster Dictionary) tactical is: a : of or relating to tactics: such as (1) : of or relating to small-scale actions serving a larger purpose (2) : made or…

Wouldn’t it be nice to take a brand new scope out of the box, mount it up on your rifle (or handgun if you’re so inclined) and within seconds get that sucker shooting like a deadeye? Well, you can, and it’s not all that complicated either. I just discovered a neat little trick that’ll help you get just about any scope on Earth zeroed and tapping the red in a matter of seconds…and it has to do with using a newer piece of gun gear called a laser bore site. Now I know these tools aren’t new, but they’re amazingly simple and quite reliable.  If you haven’t used one yet, or aren’t familiar with them let me give you some insight on why these are an awesome shooting tool. At first glance a laser bore site looks like a metallic pencil with a  steel a bulb out into a powerful laser. The…
