Match Thoughts
The 1911 .45 ACP is been
described as the premiere gun fighting tool to which all others are compared
and king of the feed ramp jam.  That is
why I don’t carry a 1911 .45ACP.   But they are fun to
shoot.  There are few legal pleasure
greater than hammering ...

Shooter's weekend
I just spent the weekend at Canton McKinley Rifle and Pistol
Club hawking knives.  This weekend is
their big Regional Bullseye Match, what we call a 2700.  It takes three days to shoot it and honestly
4 would be better, but it’s just not possible. 
They get...

Life Preserver
Officer Jeronimo Yanez shot and killed
Philando Castile following a traffic stop (http://www.kare11.com/news/yanez-trial-week-2/445870511).  A jury recently found him not
guilty.  You’ve probably seen the video
taken by Castile’s girlfriend seconds after Ca...

Do you?
If you believe George Clooney, a day without Nespresso is
day without sunshine, without oxygen, without … (insert any hyperbola you want).  But has he ever wondered where all those
single-use capsules go?  Maybe they are
being compressed, shrunk and crushed...

Blade Sunday and a Random Walk
Blade Show Sunday is the finish line.  Most of the pressure is off, sales made, promises
swapped, and bargains available, if you can recognize a bargain.   It’s a good time to talk to vendors about knives and the
industry.  I stopped at Spyderco to talk
wit...

Did You Shoot 'em Too Hard?
What is excessive force? In combat I suspect it’s waste.  Does it matter if you kill an enemy with
three rounds of 5.56X45 or drop a 1000 pound bomb on him?  Dead is dead. 
One is a little more (okay, a lot more extreme) than the other. In self-defense it’s...

Blade Show Day 2
Has the Blade Show become a victim of its own success? Saturday is always a bad day.  Any knife fancier within 4 hours of driving
can work a full week and drive here on Saturday and make it home for church and
family brunch on Sunday.  Saturday is a
packed ...

Blade Show Opens!
A Blade Show Special from Spyderco, BOGO! The first day of the Blade Show finished and was punctuated with
plenty of excited people and sore feet. As good as the show is, registration is just as terrible.  You can’t register and pick-up your pass Thursday
n...

The WRCA Knife Expo ends with a whimper yesterday.  Sundays are usually slow days as the foot
traffic is very low.  It’s also an excellent
day to bargain.  Sellers want to earn a
little money, even if it’s just enough to buy gas, so they can be haggled with...
