Imagine this scenario: It’s a typical Thursday morning and you’re fast asleep in your apartment when there’s a loud knock at your door. You slide out of bed groggily and answer the door to find a strange woman encouraging you, of all things, to let her inside because she claims to know “the people that lived there.” The problem is that, of course, you live there… and only you. You also know the residents of all adjacent units and most of their friends. If the red flags haven’t come out in your mind to this point, the sirens definitely start […]

For the shooter who already has every other base covered, or at least thinks they do, there’s one more surprisingly practical category of firearms left to invest in… what we like to call the “shirt pocket pistol,” the sub-sub-compact, if you will. These diminutive little shooters don’t specialize in knockdown power, tactical prowess, or making an impression. They don’t specialize in anything but being small and lightweight, perfect for a shirt pocket. With this in mind, it’s easy to see why you might want one of these babies to carry around your property, shop, or wherever. First and foremost, pocket […]
Plinksters at all skill levels can appreciate the beauty of the rimfire cartridge. Whether it’s the light recoil, inexpensive ammo, or the less-than-earsplitting volume (usually) that wins you over to the wonderful world of rimfire, there’s just something about these weapons that helps many shooters rediscover the joy of shooting.

There are a wide variety of styles and price points available, […]
Countless pages have been written on the topic of “best guns to have in a survival scenario.” We’ve certainly written our share… But let’s consider something heretical for a moment.
