Gun Art

OK, my wife the painter has us watching Work of Art/Next Great Artist, a reality competition show on Bravo. They wheel out guest judge Andres Serrano, who is most famous for shock art like Piss Christ, as well as photos of klansmen, nomads and feces. I don’t need to be shocked that much, but many of […]

iPod Game Review: Shooting Range a Misfire.

I go to the range a lot where run a bunch of bullets through my Ruger 10/22. When I’m not at the range I spend a lot of time on my iPod, so naturally I want a target game for when I am away from the range. I want the game to be as realistic […]

Happiness is a Warm M855A1 Enhanced Performance Round

Video Review: Learn Gun Safety with Eddie Eagle. Or Not.

Small kids need to know that guns are not toys. That’s the message of the National Rifle Association video Learn Gun Safety with Eddie Eagle. It teaches kids who find a gun to leave it alone. Go tell an adult. Even if you think it might be a toy, just leave it be. Pro-gun and less-than-pro-gun […]

Gun Review: Kimber Tactical Custom HD II

If you’ve been to your local gun emporium in the last year or so, you’ve probably noticed that there’s been a run on guns. Certain models are in short supply. Like all of them. Most of the better manufacturers are running at something like a six-month backlog of orders. Kimber has this somewhat enviable problem […]

He’s Lovin’ It

McDonald and Chicago are celebrating the Supreme Court decision, but I’m wondering if anti-handgun bills in Baltimore and elsewhere will be struck down, too. I read that DC allowed maybe 700 additional purchases after Heller. The Baltimore Sun’s Second Opinion doesn’t clear things up very much:

The Pros and Cons of Open versus Concealed Carry.

I’ve been thinking a lot about open carry lately. I have a conceal carry permit from the great State of Texas, which means I’m licensed to carry in around 38 states. Now, I don’t carry that often – which has more to do, frankly, with my lack of a easy-to-carry weapon (a full-size 1911 with […]
