Our good friend Ron passed away the very first day of this year, and I suppose it’s taken me a month or so to wrap my mind around it. For one, Ron has been a fixture in my life for as long as I care to remember things. Second, Ron was always “old” but he […]
Earlier this week, I got a call that I’ve been waiting on for roughly a year. “Tyler, my dad needs some help hunting Axis out at a friend’s place. Any chance you can make time?” Why yes, yes I could.
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 […]
Having spent a great deal of time behind the trigger of an Accurate Ordnance built rifle, I’ve come to expect great, and I mean truly great, things. My AO built rifle is thoroughly, completely, and wholly accurate and consistent in ways that still shock me.
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 […]
Few things in life rival time spent behind a very expensive rifle. Oh sure, time with loved ones, walks on beaches, and well marbled ribeyes can certainly vie for top billing, but there’s a special place for crisp two stage triggers and bolts that slide like two pieces of oiled glass.

From somewhere deep inside of my soul, and […]
If you’re considering a foray into reloading, know that there are those among us who would seek to keep you from knowing the truth. That truth: reloading — and I mean really doing it — can turn into a massive time suck. And the majority of your time is spent on brass preparation. Everyone is happy […]
The world of optics is a big one. You can’t throw a stone in an online store without hitting at least forty different types of scopes for your favorite blaster. They range from the cheap and crummy to unholy expensive bespoke models. But as you move up the stack towards stout, bombproof scopes with crystal clear optics […]
My various screeds here and on my weekly podcast should erase any doubt on where I stand on the Hearing Protection Act. Specifically, what its passage will do to the current stock of available silencers (decimate it), and what the surge in demand will do to prices (lower them, slightly). Ever the contrarian bunch, our […]
