You wouldn't believe how angry people got over tariff issues in the 19th Century. People don't think about it much these days because both major parties are more or less pro free trade and have been...

You can shoot prone like the Russian Army shoots prone with the longish Ak-74 magazine. Still, I agree with those who see limitations with Bullpup rifles. Actually, the people who benefit the most...

Springfield Armory G.I. Model .45

Due to the cost of .45acp ammo I don't get to shoot my Springfield Armory G.I.Model .45 M1911 very often, 9mm is more practical financially on a day-to-day basis, still I keep it around. I have a...

I dunno, I keep on hearing wonderful things about the Soviet/Russian PK/PKM series. The M-60 was very easy to put back together incorrectly after field stripping. The M-1919 was fussy about...

One has to figure cost into the equation. 5.7 ammo tends to be pretty expensive, so unless someone absolutely has their heart set on a PS90 and a FiveSeven pistol combo, .223/5.56 M4 clones may be...

Some Model 60 Practice

I took a very brief trip to one of the ranges I frequently visit; a pile of logs at the end of a field on my mother-in-law's farm. I set up a cardboard box at 25 feet for some close quarters practice...

If I had my druthers I would carry one of the new, small sized 9mm's on the market. However, I am a person of limited means and can't afford one of the mini-9mm's, so my .380 soldiers on. If someone...

Of course, back in the late eighties and early 90's I shot Chinese surplus, mostly corrosive. Now, I shoot Ulyanosk, Brown Bear, Silver Bear, Monarch and Wolf. Lately, I have shot a lot of Tulammo....

I usually clean the follower and the lips of the magazine every time I shoot. I use a little solvent or even just a little oil.

Zero, but not for the usual reasons one hears. I have 11 handguns, but none of them is a Glock. Actually though, I like Glocks and I qualify with the Model 22 every year in my corrections agency. I...

Model 10's can be found in gun shops all over the place. They are very, very common. They are also most excellent handguns. Shooting mine is an almost decadent pleasure.

SKS is always a good choice. An unmodified Saiga in X39 or .223 might also merit your attention. There is beginning to be a lot more price competition in AR's lately. In a few months you might be...

No available camera here, but I carry a Bersa Thunder .380 in an "Uncle Mikes #3" Inside the pocket holster. When I need to be ultra discreet I carry a Kel-Tec P-32 in the same rig.

I have a fair amount of ammo on hand. I would have liked to have a bit more than the 1700 rounds of .22LR I have now. All I have been able to find in recent weeks at the Wal-Mart has been shotgun...

I have a 7.62X39 Saiga and I am very happy with it. Ruger P95's have a pretty good reputation; heavy, blocky, and they tend to go bang when you pull the trigger.

I try to clean every time I shoot. Sometimes I wait a few days before I get to it. .22's and AK's sometimes get shot twice before cleaning.
