Tactical Defense Institute of Ohio – An After Action Report on Civilian Shotgun Training

By Tom The Tinker I have done an article in the past on the training available to the general public at Tactical Defense Institute of Ohio.  www.TDIOHIO.COM.   I have done an article in the past regarding the shotgun, in particular the 20 gauge ‘social shotgun’ which I have found to be more than adiquit in […]

Ruger 10/22 Spare Parts Kit : What You Need to Know to Keep Your Ruger 10/22 Shooting for the next 100 years!

Ruger 10/22 and Glock model 19

The .22 rimfire is probably the world’s most used, yet underrated cartridge. A .22 rifle is one of the best, if not the best firearms, one can own for foraging in a survival situation, allowing the survivor to take small game quietly and can even be used for larger game with proper shot placement. Many deer […]

An Often Overlooked But Critical Firearm Accessory

Quick Adjust Sling AR-15

One extremely important accessory for a shoulder-fired weapon is frequently overlooked by preppers. It is unpretentious, cheap, readily available, and easy to install. It’s the sling.

Suffering from a lack of sex appeal, lost in a plethora of available furniture, and definitely not the cover-girl of gun porn, the lowly sling often suffers from a lack of appreciation – until your body has paid the price.

Through the years, I have conducted numerous training sessions and can now easily identify the guys and gals who have experience in the field… the folks who have carried a long gun for an extended period of time. Their slings are functional and comfortable – like an old pair of well-worn blue jeans or a seasoned pair of boots. They fit, function, and perform critical tasks without fanfare or ritz. Those who have ignored this critical component suffer – sometimes badly. More on that down-article.

The .40 caliber sucks – James Yeager from Tactical Response

James Yeager from Tactical Response talks about why he thinks the .40 caliber sucks, and why the only defensive handguns that you should own, should be chambered in 9mm or .45 acp. Personally, I’ve never liked the .40 and don’t see any need for it, same thing with the .357sig.

If you can’t kill it with a Glock 19 and 16 rounds of 9mm 115-grain CorBon +p then it would probably be a good idea to RUN…

1911 vs Glock 41 my thoughts

After I posted James Yeager’s video – Why 1911s Suck, I’ve gotten several emails (and comments to the post) asking what I think. Well let’s see, I currently own three Glocks, a Glock 41, Glock 19 and a Glock 26 and my personal favorite is the Glock 19. If you’re looking for a defensive handgun the […]

Why 1911s Suck – James Yeager

IMG_0875

The best .45 ACP made today is… The Glock 41 – I own one and love it… I’ve owned a a bunch of 1911′s over the years and none even come close to Glock’s new gen 4 model 41. The Glock model 41 is lighter in weight, more accurate and with a 13 round magazine has almost double the capacity of the typical 1911.

Girls and Guns

Stand Your Ground and Castle Doctrine Laws

A long time ago, I married a city girl. With her came two very citified daughters, thirteen and fifteen. Very beautiful and bright young ladies.

Their previous education on firearms had come from three sources, anti gun family members, friends who had no knowledge of firearms, and of course, the television. To them, guns were a symbol of violence, they were evil things that killed people. Teaching them about firearms was going to be a challenge. I knew they had a lot to learn. What I didn’t know at the time was how much I also had to learn.

Reloading / hand loading & bullet casting makes more sense now than ever!

This is a guest post by Sam K and entry for our non-fiction writing contest.
