G2 Research’s RIP 9mm:  All the performance of a .22 long rifle

G2 Research's new "Radically Invasive Projectile". What a farce.

by John Boch (Guns Save Life) – I found Heater Meals at a Bass Pro store in St. Louis and was intrigued by what seemed like a “civilian” MRE entree of sorts.  The cost was about $6 or so, or about the price of a real, full MRE without the military look.  This product...

So it was at the NRA Annual Meetings that a rather friendly gentleman from Swab-its captured my attention with that company’s “Bore-tips” bore cleaning foam swabs.  Basically,...

Product Review:  Tank007 TK-703 – Tiny but mighty

by John Boch If you would have told me twenty years ago that I could carry a flashlight scarcely bigger than a 7.62×51 cartridge which would emit about 50 lumens of light on a single AAA battery, I would have laughed at you.
