Long ago, in a galaxy far away, I graduated from high school as a gaunt 155 lb. teenager. Fast forward a decade or so, and Christmas 2017 had me tipping the scales at a portly 207 pounds thanks to a steady diet of fried chicken, dark beer, cheeseburgers, and lifting a bit. ***note to self […]
note: The silencer and range time for this review was provided by Capitol Armory, located in Cedar Park, TX. Of great joy to me is using a product and seeing the design ethos behind it. Getting to know the designer of a silencer, then shooting the silencer he designed, and seeing the physical embodiment of […]
On this evening’s VideoLog, I painfully dispose of unnecessary brass, use various expletives, and talk about how to get started in reloading. Come for the reloading talk, stay for death of a beetle and a discussion about understanding that nobody cares about your problems quite like you.
Many years ago, I had the privilege of being managed by a truly great man named Adam Howland. When I get to bloviating, I tend to describe the year or so of our working relationship as transcendental.

Above, you’ll see your humble author in one of the last races of my collegiate career. I’m fairly confident that this was the 400 meter hurdles, but it was nearly a decade ago and certain details have started to soften around the edges. Several months later, I tore my ACL which closed the book on […]
Many years ago, a coworker dropped an overstuffed egg carton on my desk. It was spilling over with eggs bigger than I’d ever seen. “Ducks!”, he declared. And that started my love affair with using duck eggs in baking. The yolk has more fat (yaaaas), and the whites have more protein (unnnggghhh). This makes for […]
The unfortunate reality that faces many silencer owners is that their AR-15 pistols and rifles are not designed or built to complement a silencer screwed to the muzzle. The reason for this is simple. The AR-15 is a gas operated rifle that relies on a portion of the expanding gases produced during the firing of […]
