15 Amazingly Ridiculous Redneck Automotive Repairs [PHOTOS]

Duct-tape craftsmanship and artisanal baling wire are two of our favorite hobbies here at The Patriot Caller. And of course, we believe it would be foolhardy to suggest that WD-40 is NOT an integral part of the solution to every problem mankind has ever faced… It’s amazing what you can do (or do without) when you put your mind to it and engage in a little, ummm… resourcefulness? Lots of our readers are interested in leading more self-reliant lifestyles, or even going off-the-grid. While others among us are (you know who you are) are just incredibly cheap, and refuse to pay professionals to […]

Driver Finds Handgun Lodged in BUMPER!?

You Decide: Ridiculously inconvenient bumper holster? Or vaguely hostile hood ornament gone wrong? We’ll add another possibility: Highly ineffective performance spoiler? We have no idea how exactly how this pistol became lodged in the hood of a Honda Civic… but one thing is sure. It’s in remarkably good shape for an object that appears to have been bouncing along on I-5 in Washington State.  We’ve heard of hiding guns in plain sight. In fact, we have shared several ideas for doing just that on the following pages. FYI, none of these include storing them in a motor vehicle, and […]

How to Use Bullet Tracing to Improve Your Long Range Accuracy

When you pull the trigger on any of your guns there’s a little bit of distortion in the air. Snipers call this “bullet trace” and it’s one of the critical elements they use to determine where a shot hit.  What happens as the bullet travels through the air, the high speed literally distorts the air around it. Bullet tracing works much like those tracer rounds you might have seen in old World War II footage on the History Channel.  Gunners and snipers use these trails to re-adjust their aim. Where this becomes especially helpful for long distance target shooting and […]

VIDEO: Maryland Deputy Blasts a Groundhog on a Public Road

Did you hear the one about the Maryland Deputy who got into a standoff with a groundhog… …and shot his way out of it?! Well, now you can say that you not only hear about it, you saw the dang movie too. Warning: This video contains footage of a cop literally shooting a groundhog! We’re not sure what exactly Maryland’s use of force policy is on varmints… But it’s safe to say this was a very bad day for this groundhog. Probably not this deputy’s best day either. Woof! Hey, we realize it might seem like we’re making fun of this poor […]

White-Tailed Deer: Why, When and How They Shed [VIDEO]

Funny story, we once explained the yearly antler cycle to a non-hunter and this man was totally incredulous that a deer, no matter how impressive, grows a whole new massive set of antlers each and every year.  But if you’re an experienced hunter, you already know that bucks manage to grow a new set of antlers every single year. And once hunting season is over with, a whole new season starts to begin… shed hunting season. This season conveniently tends to overlap Turkey season in many areas, so you’ve got multiple excuses to get out in the field. When does it […]

5 Best Eye Exercises for Shooters

What’s the most common thing shooters say they want help with?  We conducted a survey recently and got some very interesting feedback. The overwhelming response was one word, simply: Aiming. It’s a bit of a tricky subject to focus on, because well… what exactly does it mean? Pretty much everyone knows how their sight picture should look in order to “aim” at the center of a target. You line up the front and rear sights on the bullseye, right? Where the real difficulty seems to come from is not so much “aiming” as it is “focusing.” Most people tend to […]

Battle Royale: Tactical Light Vs Laser Sight

When it comes to home defense, it’s safe to say that the vast majority of gun owners plan to confront trouble with their trusty sidearm. And why not? Today’s handguns pack a whole lot of value into a very small, potent, and even economical package. We’ve dedicated many words to that effect here on Patriot Caller. However, there’s one serious blindspot in this strategy that often goes unaddressed. And it has as much to do with effectiveness as it does protecting your loved ones. This “blindspot,” as we’re very intentionally calling it, is a little thing we call “the dark.” […]

Will This Military Sight Double Your Shooting Speed? [50% OFF]

Introduced to the US Armed Forces in 2000, reflex optics quickly became the go-to sighting choice for small arms, starting with the M4 family of rifles and branching out quickly. In fact, the SEAL responsible for dispatching Osama Bin Laden used one to place 3 rounds through the most wanted man in history’s forehead. With the adoption of the Sig P320 as the USAF’s primary sidearm, there’s a good chance that many military handguns will also incorporate a mini-reflex optic (one of the civilian P320’s distinguishing features). [COUPON:  Get the MCG Reflex Sight 50%OFF] Since the military’s adoption of this technology, […]

Watch These Shooters Drill Crazy Long Pistol Shots!

Most shooters are of the opinion that any target beyond 25 yards is more or less a waste of ammo. But how many shooters have actually put that to the test? As you can imagine, it’s not easy for everyone to setup a safe testing area for this type of long distance testing. In particular, this often involves holding your sights well over the top of the target (sometimes the horizon). Still, if it can be done safely, shooting at 100 yards can really help fine tune your overall shooting technique. That’s because shooting at this range really amplifies all […]

Crazy Winter Driving Fails [VIDEO]

It’s never fun to be involved in any kind of auto accident, especially when it’s incredibly cold outside and you could get frostbite just waiting on the tow truck.  Still, there’s a lot to learn from watching the crazy things that tend to occur when you put the average driver on a sheet of ice and watch what happens. The fact is that almost all natural impulses simply make matters worse… but they are hilarious to watch.
