Gear Review: Slip 2000 Extreme Weapon Grease

Ever feel like Amazon is reading your mind? I sure do sometimes. About two years ago Amazon told me to buy Slip 2000 Extreme Weapons Grease. Since I must not upset my master, I bought a 4oz jar for $15.25. I had been using Mobile 1 Synthetic motor oil (or whatever motor oil I have […]

Gear Review: Pachmayr GuardianGrip for J-Frame Revolvers

If there’s a more popular backup/pocket gun than Smith & Wesson’s venerable J-frame wheel guns, I’m not sure what it would be.
