    The concept of the Survival Rifle stirs up debate. Well what if you had one gun that could shoot almost every available handgun round? The Chiappa M6 with X-Caliber barrel inserts promises just that, but how well does it live up to that promise?
  • The new RO 9mm in Stainless Steel.Two New 9mm Springfield Range Officers
    If you are a fan of the 1911 and have not checked out Springfield's Range Officer line you owe it to yourself to do so. I have come to the conclusion that the standard Range Officer is just about the best bang for your buck in the target shooting 1911 world there is. The ROs have one of the best off the shelf slide to frame fits I have seen on a non-custom pistol.

    This week I'm returning to the subject of beekeeping, because the last one didn't go as I had planned. If you watched the videos for that article, it turned out that one of my hives had gotten extremely aggressive, and I'm sure it turned a lot of people off to beekeeping. In this video I am rewinding to the beginning, where most people start, by "installing" package bees into a brood box. As you can see, I am bare armed in the video, and up until I discovered that one of my hives had become aggressive, I had worked my bees exclusively with bare arms. And that includes removing frames and extracting honey.

  • The H45 military stove is the only one I know that burns diesel with no wick and with a somewhat controllable burn. It is balls to the wall hot, so try it in your backyard first, but they use this stove in military tents, so the danger of spontaneous combustion above it must be reasonable (lmao). In addition to diesel, home heating oil, kerosene, and jet fuel, the H45 also burns gasoline also, which makes it truly unique.  This winter is over, but next is on the way. This is a good deal at Sportsman's Guide.Prepping 101: Killer Deals On Prior Articles in a Surprising Place
    Some of you long time readers here may remember that I found a killer deal on a copy of a 100 round Beta C-Mag at the height of the Sandy Hook gun boom in 2013. It was at the Sportsman's Guide. Other sporting goods retailers were price gouging and SG was selling that mag for what was at the time less than suggested retail price. I thought it was pretty cool. These days that mag is even $50 cheaper, but that isn't the point of this article. I'm on the SG mailing list now, and just sitting around today I opened their current flyer and found a few prepping products that I have actually reviewed, at really low prices, and a couple I haven't, but that I know are also really great deals. I'm going to be light on this column for a few weeks because my kids are out of school for Passover, so I figured I would just share this information, and give you my coupon code. ;)
