  6. Too much gun?

    Carry Weapons
    Folks, I've been looking at some 100 year anniversary videos on WWI and weapons thereof. I've been struck by the fact that since 1900 and the great John M. Brownings invention of the .32 ACP / 7.65mm massive numbers of .32s have been sold and used. Now I know the power hype has lead to a few...

    This is my first post to this particular site. While I currently live in NY, I assure you I am not one of "them" lol.

  10. Ammo Shelf Life: How Long Are Bullets Good For?

    Bigfoot Gun Belts
    One might wonder if there is such a thing as ammunition shelf life. It's a good concern to have, as ammunition should only be used if one can rely on it to be safe. Granted, one might opine that if a person keeping sufficient ammunition to worry about expiring is probably not doing enough...

    Bigfoot Gun Belts
    Naturally, semi-auto pistols are most conducive to concealed carry given their flatter shape, but what about concealed carry revolvers? As it turns out, a lot of people still carry a wheelgun.
