  • While the 5.56 (left) has a lot of great capabilities, working well out of a short barrel is not one of them. The 300 AAC Blackout (right) might be a great alternative.Gunfight Science: SBRs in 5.56 Suck - Buy a .300BK
    Many factors go into how a weapon functions and the ballistics of your chosen projectile. 5.56 is absolutely fine as a combat cartridge. As long as you can move the bullet fast enough. But, is there a better option for all the other situations?
  • The TEC-12 proved to be a capable performer on the range.Hybrid Pump/Semi-Auto Scattergun? The TriStar TEC-12—Full Review.
    There are few firearms as versatile as the shotgun. The modern shotgun is a work of engineering prowess, but one seemingly insurmountable issue has been developing a semi-automatic that can fire the full range of loads. In these cases, you usually must revert back to a pump action. But what if you want one that can do everything?

    I have had the opportunity to evaluate over a dozen guns from Wilson, and the quality, fit, and finish never disappoints. For many years, a Wilson Combat CQB was on my list of pistols to add to my daily rotation. I never got around to ordering one and at this time, and I’m glad I put it off. In my mind, there is a new king and that is the X-TAC Elite.

  • boston-brown-breadPrepping 101: Canning Boston Brown Bread - Fill Those Empty Ball Jars
    I was thinking. Does it make any sense to keep a bunch of Ball canning jars full of nothing? That is an easy answer. No. They are insect and rodent proof, so it actually makes a lot of sense to pack them full of at least something, flour, beans, rice, pasta, dried milk powder, anything that will keep for a long time under any long term storage packaging. But what about cooked food? What about processing the jars now with edible food? Veggies don’t have much in the way of calories. Meat is cheaper to buy canned than it is to can it yourself. That was when I remembered Boston Brown Bread.
