A Small Lesson About Bullets

I went to the range this morning with no intention of posting about anything. But I observed something I thought you guys might be interesting in seeing and talking about. I took my S&W 686, .357 Magnum pistol, stainless, with a 6 inch barrel. It is a fine shooter. Here it is. I wasn’t shooting .357 Mag loads today. I was shooting some .38 Special full wadcutters with a light load for accuracy. I was shooting at [...]

A Lovely Day at the Range and an Important Fact

Today was a nice morning, so I decided to make a range trip. The lovely wife decided to go with me. She likes to take photos as a hobby. I shot my Remington 700 VLS in .308. It shot great as usual.

The Box O’ Truth Gets a Suppressor

I don’t know why it took me so long to realize my dire need for a suppressor, but I finally got one. It took right at 9 months from ordering the suppressor and filing the paper work with the BATF before I got my stamp and could pick up the suppressor. First, let’s talk about the suppressor and what it does. Suppressors “suppress” the sound of a firearm firing. They are also called “silencers” or even [...]
