I have long been interested in the KelTec SU2000. When it was first introduced, we looked at them and liked the way it looked, but the MSRP was crazy. I decided to wait until they came down to a reasonable price to get one.
I had originally thought I wanted one in 9mm, but recently noticed that...
I have long wanted an example of the .30-40 Krag rifle, but never found one in great condition that wasn't priced at way more than I wanted to pay for one.
But the next best thing happened… My buddy Ted bought one that I can shoot.
Ted found an example at a pawn shop and got it for a very...
We went on a short vacation last week and visited some friends in Temple, Texas. One day we went to Waco to visit the Texas Ranger Museum and I thought you might enjoy some pictures from our visit. The Texas Ranger Museum is a fine museum, with lots of history and lots and lots of guns.
I was visiting a local gun shop recently with my buddy Ted, and while he was looking at some guns, I happened to notice an old Colt Cobra in the case. It looked rough as a corn cob, but I couldn't believe the price. It was tagged $200.
I couldn't believe it and asked to see it. It was rough...
Today we took my friend Liem's Kel-Tec RFB to the range.
RFB stands for Rifle, Forward-ejecting Bullpup.
It is a fine little rifle.
The rifle is a bullpup design, meaning that the magazine is behind the shooter's face, and the barrel and action are very compact.
The total length of the...
Many folks have to scratch their heads to try to remember the first firearm they ever shot. Not me. Here it is.
This is my Dad's Remington Model 241 SpeedMaster.
Sometime in the late 1940s, my Mom and my Aunt went to Youngblood's Sporting Goods in Port Arthur, Texas and each put one of these...
One day at church, my friend Joe asked me if I would be home on Monday.
I said that I would, Lord willing, and he said he was bringing something to show me.
On Monday morning, Joe showed up with an old 1873 Winchester rifle in .32-20 caliber.
It was as rough as any rifle I've ever seen that...
Recently, my friend hi_capacity sent me a note and told me he had a Beretta Storm Carbine, if I would be interested in shooting it.
I told him I sure was and asked how far away he lived. It turned out that he only lives about 75 miles from me (in Texas, that is what we call "right around the...
I have always enjoyed teaching ladies that are not "gunny" how to shoot. They are great students. They listen and don't already think that they know it all, and follow instructions.
I've never trained a non-gunny lady to shoot that didn't shoot really well, right away.
My niece Jennifer asked...
I have made the SHOT Show for many years. It is a great place to see all the new guns and other stuff that are available every year. This year the show was in Las Vegas, and I and my friends Ted and Liem all went. We had a blast.
I thought you guys might want to see some of the stuff we saw...
Many years ago, about 1970, when I went through the Police Academy, there was a guy there that owned a Ruger pistol in .30 Carbine.
After class one day, he took some shots at a Coke can on the 100 yard berm, and was hitting it pretty consistently.
The pistol had a lot of blast and noise. I...
Today we will be looking at a Tree Rest made by Montie at www.Montiegear.com This rest is made from very lightweight aluminum and weighs only 8.5 ounces. It is a simple, yet very sturdy design. It can be disassembled to lay completely flat for storage or for fitting into your pack.
I recently saw an ad for some Polish Radom P-64, 9 X 18 Makarov caliber and they were listed as C&R (Curio and Relic) firearms, listed for slightly less than $200.
A $200 pistol sent right to my front door? How you gonna beat it?
It came in a few days and I opened the box like a kid at...
I was recently contacted by Montie Design and asked if I would like to evaluate one of their products, the AR-Rest, a portable gun rest.
I said, "Sure thing".
They shipped me a model of their AR-Rest and here it is, as it came out of the package.
It was a three piece assembly, made of high...
My friend Liem wanted a Kel-Tec PMR-30 after we saw one at the SHOT Show over a year ago.
But they were kind of like hen's teeth, hard to find.
So, he put in an order with a local FFL to look for him one, and about 9 months later, he finally got it.
Here it is.
The PMR-30 is a full-sized...
You folks may remember that I recently got a Ruger Blackhawk in .30 Carbine.
Here it is.
I had acquired it at a gun show and it was used, but still in nice condition.
I made a post about it and it shot well at fairly close range.
But to get it to hit to close to point-of-aim, I had to lower...
My little grandnephew was coming up for his first birthday, and I decided to get him his first rifle.
I looked around for an old, but high quality rifle that I could refinish for him.
I finally found one at a local pawn shop.
It had some wear on it, but under that wear was a Remington Model...
My friend Liem told me that he had a new rifle and wanted to go shooting.
So this morning, we bundled up and went to the range.
He has an MSAR STG 556 carbine.
Here it is.
It is an American made carbine that looks a lot like a Steyr Aug.
It weighs in at 7.2 pounds.
It is a fine looking...
I recently saw a post by my friend Postban where he bought a single shot .22 pistol. It was a new Cricket Chipmunk pistol, with a laminated stock.
Here's a picture of the type he bought.
I was impressed that the pistol was on sale for $168 from Bud's Gun Shop. It looked like a fun gun for...
Today we will take a look at the PTR-32 rifle that belongs to my buddy Liem. Here it is:
This rifle is a copy of the HK91 .308 rifle that has been made recently in 7.62 X 39 caliber. It is made by the PTR Company and is a fine weapon.
It is in 7.62 X 39 caliber, a break with its historic...
