Friendsville Precision Dry Fire Device Reviewed

Posted on Dec 5, 2014

The other day I ran across a very unique device from Friendsville Precision that was developed specifically to simplify AR dry-fire training. The Dry Fire Device is simply a mechanism to cock the hammer without having to lose focus or break form. Any device that can mitigate the pain of cocking the hammer without having to reach for the charging handle should be welcomed with open arms, and likely will… How can I not be excited?

Trumark FS-1 Slingshot Reviewed

Posted on Dec 4, 2014

Since I first became interested in prepping for what may come after an apocalypse, I’ve searched high and low for simple weapons that could be used effectively for survival. Aside from having a knife and possibly a firearm on my belt, I felt that any good backup weapon would be the answer to this question: What weapon is silent to operate, can fire a projectile with deadly accuracy at least 25 yards, and weighs less than a pound including ammo?

Things To Consider When Prepping

Posted on Nov 30, 2014

With all of the talk on prepping over the last few years, I have been doing a lot of research and planning to make sure my family is going to be safe should something catastrophic occur. Zombies have become a popular theme for emergency planning. A Zombie Apocalypse simply a metaphor for a natural disaster, a crash of the economy, or even an act of terrorism like an EMP or nuclear explosion.

Ruger 8301 American Rimfire 22LR Reviewed

Posted on Nov 30, 2014

For some time I’ve been wanting a bolt-action .22LR for plinking and basic target practice. Especially with all of the cheap ammo out there. Much of it burns so dirty that it can be troublesome for most semi-automatics, but not with bolt or lever -actions.
