Whether or not you could be considered an AR aficionado, Windham Weaponry would not likely be the first manufacturer that comes to mind. In fact, I would suspect most are searching their memory banks trying to recall if they have ever even heard of Windham Weaponry. Rest at ease, the name is not as important as who is behind it and the quality of workers building the guns.
Last week I wrote about my disappointment with the stance the Wounded Warrior Project has taken against guns and knives. Hollow speak about quietly supporting the Second Amendment while openly shunning any association with the firearm and knife industries.
No matter where you fall in the spectrum of bomb-defusing baddies to Tim “the Toolman” Taylor, the Leatherman MUT is the multi-tool that will suit all of your needs. This handy tool is the ultimate stocking stuffer—if you can wait that long.

A coworker once described me as so patriotic that all I lacked was a trail of fireworks shooting out of my bum. I served six years on active duty, three tours during Operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm. I can give a firsthand account of the sight and smells during the aftermath of the Turkey Shoot or the feeling of being on the first ship to enter the Gulf after Saddam invaded Kuwait. Today, I am a bit longer in the tooth, but no less patriotic.
“You’re better off with one good knife than 25 bad ones.” Truer words may never have been spoken. But for years, my problem wasn’t whether or not I owned a good knife, but rather my inability to resharpen my knife. I could take a blade so sharp it would cut your eyeball just looking at it and turn it in to a butter knife when I tried to resharpen it.
Although the Senate was expected to vote on the Sportsmen’s Act on Monday it was unable to agree to waive certain procedural rules to allow a vote on the widely supported, bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act of 2012 (S.3525).
The AR or Modern Sporting Rifle (MSR) has become the most modular multipurpose shooting platform in history. Whether you prefer
As the suburbs continue to encroach on deer habitat, game departments have become more restrictive about which bang sticks hunters may use when hunting in the deer woods. Whether you are looking to extend your season beyond archery and muzzleloader, or if sticks and strings and front stuffers are simply not what you are looking for, buying a slug gun does not have to break the bank.
November 14, 2012 – Catastrophe struck the Dan Wesson Firearms plant in Norwich, New York when a fire broke out in the basement of the plant. Unfortunately, most of the ammunition for the plant is also stored in the basement. An employee was first to discover the fire, which was apparently caused by a faulty electrical system, but is under investigation.

If you are the type of person who can cite current CQB doctrine as easily as your birthdate—you should probably seek professional help. Luckily, I am that help! CQB doctrine dictates that the operator manipulates the charging handle with their support hand only. This eliminates the need to take your hand off the pistol grip, but may—depending on the buttstock and head placement—require the operator to lift their cheek from the stock. However, properly positioned, you should not have to lose a proper cheek weld.
Archery ranks just below table tennis for total number of injuries related to the sport. Unfortunately, the number one archery related injury is falling from a tree—an injury that is completely preventable with a little common sense and the Hunter Safety System.
In any shooting competition, a sudden death finale makes all of the hype and build-up worth the wait. A 3-Gun Nation shoot-off offers every bit of that anticipated excitement, but it adds a twist to up the ante. When a competitor makes it to the final round, the switch is made to sponsor-provided equipment—FNH USA’s SCAR, SLP Shotgun and the FNS-9.
Pepper spray or Oleoresin of Capsicum is a great defense against bears if deployed properly. Of course a .300 Weatherby or .454 Casull is preferential, but not always as practical or legal. For instance, when bowhunting elk with an archery-only permit—even in bear country—could result in legal troubles if you were caught with a sidearm. There is also the factor of accuracy when teeth and claws are coming your way at 30 mph.
Fouling is a necessary evil when dealing with front stuffers, but maintaining the breech plug is quick and easy thanks to a couple of cheap tools.
Some would call it fear mongering, others would accuse me of sabre rattling. I would just call it plain fun, common sense and an excuse I can use to buy a new gun without getting beat up too bad by the wife. Whatever you call it, the possibility of Obama getting reelected and another assault weapons ban is a reality that I intend to take preemptive action against.
