Franklin Armory reached out and wanted a clarification about their protected IP. Which is fair. But that also gives me a chance to ask some rhetorical questions about the product as it sits now and going forward.

These high dollar, surreptitious, “Tactical” bags that have been on the market as of late is living proof that a fool and his money are easily parted.

So much so, I feel as if the entire genre is a scam.

It seems the president of Accuracy International has out his foot in his mouth regarding American gun rights. I can't think of a more surefire way to put yourself out of business than to spit in your customer's face. 

Yes, he said it. No, it wasn't taken out of context.

Driving out to the range this morning and wanted to share some thoughts on a statement I heard defending 300blk. It went something like this, “Yeah. 308 subsonic is a thing but you don’t get 220g bullets in 308”.

 

Yes, Virginia. There is a Santa Claus and he loads subsonic 300WM with 220 grain pills.

 

So if you already have a 300WM and a 30 caliber suppressor, you functionally have 300blk. 

 

Food for thought.

  • Some fool is mud testing the Hudson H9.

Hey folks, 

 

Just  A quick update on what’s going on. We’ve been a little bit delayed with Podcasts because we have been dealing with the thousand yard range. We had be back to normal this week. 

 But while I’m here I think the Harvey Weinstein story is a good opportunity to bring up what I call cowboy rules.  I’m not going to go into a long soliloquy about the philosophy of cowboy rules. But the basic premise is you may not be able to control the universe but you can control how you react to it.  And what you put up with. 

 Cowboy rules is a great philosophy that can serve as a Norstar in shit holes like Hollywood. 

 Back to the normal schedule later this week. 

 

 

 Sincerely, 

 Marky

I know it's dujour with all the cool kids to hate on the SIG p320. Which is expected. These same folks would be hating on the Glock 17 if it won the MHS Contract.

So...instead of sitting on the sidelines jaw-jacking with all the officianidos, why don't you jump into the game and decide for yourself?

Is the SIG P320 the next "M-14" turd or just a prelude to the MK17A1, A2, A3?

But don't be paralyized by the drama especially when those drama drives traffic. #conflictofinterest

After some discussions and education, my plan to "manipulate" Freeze into getting a Glock pistol, by building it, has been scrapped. The plan was to purchase one of the Polymer 80 style kits and build from there. 

But research has shown the builds are not economically sound. This is doubly true when you look at the police trade-in market. 

If you are already sitting on a unused Glock slide, the math may change. But starting from scratch, you are losing a significant amount of money. 

In this episode Freeze and I discuss this calculus.
