My baby

I absolutely love my Makarov…but my CZ-75b 9mm will always be my baby. I love it so much, in fact, that you are seeing it lay on top of a quilt my mother made me. I am fortunate enough to live within half an hours drive to Cabela’s. They have a great firearms department, but […]

Marshmallows Part 1

I try to make something that I’ve never made before at least once a month…I really try for once per week but I don’t usually have the time because I’m too lazy chillaxin on the couch with a soda & a bag of doritos. One weekend I decided to make these: I know…newspaper & a tin […]

Thank you.

I’m probably linking these blogs wrong, but I’m new at this. I’ve got a few people to thank. This blog never would have made it to fruition if it wasn’t for: my very good friend over at  My brother: And…I just got PIMPED by: So, I am definitely doing the Yankee Born, […]

Gun Show

Yes, I know. 9mm Russian is not so wimpy. […]

Part of the reason why I have a rebel heart. There are those who think its really awesome. I find some kindred spirits. Some ask me how I got into […]

First time at the Range

I am what you would call a late bloomer…I shot my first gun when I was 19. It was a run of the mill bolt action 22. My guy was shooting a variety of rifles because when we took a trip to the range, it was a waste to take just one because it was […]

Welcome to the Blog.

Taking a cue from my brother and pushing from a few friends I’ve decided to blog. About what? I’m not exactly sure. But then again, what is a blog if not random posts about nothing in particular. I hope to post often enough to make this interesting. Although, I tend to sign myself up for […]
