Speaking from the UK, I am aware of the Ruby Ridge incident more than most, if not nearly all, of my countrymen. We have had many police shootings here of very questionable judgement, but none, to my...

Here's a little take on the Holocaust that has got me into some trouble from time to time. I ask people how many people were killed in the extermination camps of the Nazis. Now if your first thought...

Well, by UK standards I'm fairly well blessed with 14 rimfires, as I'm registered as a collector. They're all my favourites depending upon why I'm shooting, but here's my most loved. A Greener small...

Smashing 'New' Rifle

Well, new to me. A Marlin Golden 39A .22rf made in 1967. What a little gem this rifle is. While not as accurate as a good bolt action target rifle, it's damned close. The action is smooth as snot on...

Question about silencers / supressors in US

In UK we have some of the most restrictive firearms laws in the world which, I might add, hacks me off greatly. But, once a person gets a firearms certificate, sound moderators are no problem to...
