Deal With the Compromise: AR-15 Weight, Capability, and Balance

There’s a question that I see pop up a lot in forums and social media: “How much should my AR-15 weigh?” The most popular answer is, “as light as you can make it.” While pithy, such a response is still valid up to a point. While I can provide some firmer numbers, and I will, it’s also important to consider the weight factor within a context of balancing other elements as well.

Make Ready! Defensive Conditions and Posture During Emergencies

When we start talking about bad situations and what we think we’re going to do, most people in the shooting world immediately think of firefights and raids. But that’s not reality.

Feeling the Crunch? Stockpile Intelligently with Ammo Squared

Every time an ammo crunch comes around, I find myself asking why I didn’t take my own advice about buying ammo slowly over time. The reality is that it comes down to a mixture of time, budget, and attention. I recently came across a company that looks like it could solve that problem for me, and I want to bring them to your attention.

Scenario X: Our Realistic End of the World Situation

I’ve been having a lot of conversations lately about the right mixture of skills, equipment, communications, and other elements of a theoretical emergency situation. With that, it’s time to revisit Scenario-X, our fictional disaster first introduced in the load carriage series. In this post, I want to build out my thoughts a bit more and discuss some of the nuances and reasoning behind it. Why? Well, because it’s going underpin a lot of things coming up soon.

Modularity or Mediocrity? Sometimes You Just Need to do What You Like

This isn’t really a review of the Sig P320, per se. Instead, it’s a brief discussion about how it’s unique modularity works, and the fact that I just really don’t like this gun. But that’s ok, because we live in the golden age of choices.

CZ P10 F Review: Full-Size Handgun Ripe for a Competition Pistol Project

This is my review of the CZ P10
F optics ready, which I purchased myself with the intent of turning it into a competition pistol. In all, it’s a competent striker-fired pistol that shines with a 19+1 capacity, good aftermarket support, and pretty good trigger out of the box. So what else should you know?
