But when you get a really high end pistol in your hands, GAAAAWD the drool starts flowing. Don't spend your money on multiple mediocre pistols when you could own better. Let's look at three awesome high-end pistols that will change your world. Dan Wesson Discretion Commander I've shot twenty or so different 1911 .45 pistols.

When and Why You Need Body Armor

In recent years gun-related incidents and attacks have been on the rise. This poses the need for civilians, security personnel, military and law enforcement agents in the US to look into their options for body armor. While no vest is 100% bulletproof, it can significantly increase the wearer’s chances of survival in the event of getting shot. With this in mind, there are different types of ballistic armors suitable against the different types of calibers available in the US today; from soft "lightweight" body armor, to hard body armor with heavy ballistic plates.

I recently read a book called Ishmael, and even before I finished it I felt a need to write about it. I hope this post will open some eyes. I hope it will make you think about the bigger picture. That's a pretty big statement, but if you stick with me here you'll learn that we've been lied to, and you might agree that the bigger picture holds [...]

3 Modern Cast Iron Skillets Worth Considering

When you hear the phrase "modern cast iron," you probably think about the Lodge cast iron that's sold at WalMart, Bass Pro, bigger grocery stores, and even some Texas gas stations in my neck o' the woods. Lodge is the brand of cast iron that I first bought when I decided to buy a skillet for camping. I had no idea what I was doing. No prior knowledge of cast iron, or how to cook with it. I had problems with food sticking to the surface of the skillet, and I ended up burning most meals. So the meals on [...]
