Lookit what I bought the other day: To say I’m a little bit of a CZ snob is an understatement so when I saw this at the bookstore, I couldn’t resist shelling out almost $10 which is not something that I normally do. I definitely wouldn’t pay that much for a cooking or baking magazine […]

Somehow, over the years, gun ownership has become quite the controversy. It has slowly turned from a right into a question of it’s need.

What I’m talking about is the most important thing to remember to do in self defense. She stayed outwardly calm. Inside, I’m sure her heart […]

I was at Barnes & Noble today, buying my two favorite books for my 8 year old godson/nephew’s birthday and this stopped me in my tracks: I did a double take…”How Guns Won” …can it be? has Time Magazine churned out a positive gun article?
