Riots and Looting across Illinois-is there anyone who did not see this coming?

By Mike Keleher I am an information and news junkie and like any junk food junkie, after getting my fill I am left feeling ill and distinctly unfulfilled.

80% Receiver Pistol Build-Can A Caveman Do It?

By Mike Keleher I love to tinker with my guns, and truth be told, I break more guns in a given year than most people shoot. I then have to fix them. I learn an awful lot that way. Trial and error is practically my middle name. I have learned internal functions, fit and...

Ammo shortage? Sneak past with a Lee Classic Loader reloading kit

By Mike Keleher Like most of you, I have been watching the Corona Virus inspired run on guns and ammunition for a few weeks now and am offering up my less than academic but oh so practical observation…here we go again. Remember the run on guns and ammo when Hillary and then Obama were...

Shot Show 2020 A to Z

By Mike Keleher What is it like to attend the SHOT show? It is enormous. That pretty much sums it up. Enormous. They will have 60-70 thousand visitors visit in three days-it’s like holding the Superbowl of firearms and firearm accessories inside a hotel expo center. I could not tell you how many miles...

Live From the 2020 SHOT Show Industry Day At The Range

By Mike Keleher Last year I found out the media is invited to a day of shooting other people’s newest guns and ammo on the Monday before the SHOT Show kicks off on Tuesday. Now I have enjoyed attending the world’s largest firearms trade show in the massive Sands Expo Center, but all those...

Firearms and Air Travel Primer

By Mike Keleher I know it can be pretty daunting to even consider taking a firearm with you when part of your trip includes air travel. The idea of losing control over your gun(s) in transit lodged inside checked luggage is a pretty scary thought. None of us want our legally owned and possessed...

Buh-bye 2019.  Only 2754 humans shot in Chicago this year!

Photo credit: Brad Boniwel By Mike Keleher Well the good news to be touted by the city will of course be “Shootings down in 2019!”…yes indeed. They are down a whopping 7% since 2018…whee, that must be quite a source of solace for the paltry 2754 people who were shot in Chicago this year....

Smallest Inside the Waist Band Holsters

Photo credit: balmemes.com By Mike Keleher OK, truth be told, there is already a lot of me inside the waistband (IWB) of my pants-so I am not all that comfortable sticking bulky holsters in there along with an every day carry pistol.

Black Friday Means Guns and Gun Parts On Sale

by Mike Keleher I don’t know about you, but my email in-box is flooded every day with advertising. It may have been years since I had an actual email from a human being. About 90% of my email is from gun and gun part sellers and the rest is a sprinkling of ads for...
