Sometimes you need a pen. Not just any pen, but one that can withstand the blistering heat, freezing cold, and harsh conditions only the most operatingest operators operate in. You need, a Tuff Writer Tactical Pen. Now, I admit, I was skeptical at first. I mean, a pen is a pen is a pen. Doesn’t matter how sexy it is, being machined out of 6061-T6 Aluminum and filled with thixotropic ink in a hermetically sealed cartridge to 35 psi for up to 3x writing life, it’s a pen and if you drop it in a...

Dennis asked if he could send me a belt to T&E and, being thrilled with the holsters he’s made, I was more than happy to oblige. My last belt had shrunk a bit (really… I didn’t get larger, I swear) so a new belt was a great idea, and what a belt this beast is! What makes this gunbelt stand out from the rest?

A while back, Lucky Gunner asked if I’d review some PMC Bronze ammo. I often purchase PMC at the range since it is inexpensive and never seemed to have any problems with it, so I was more than happy to accept. I had done plenty of reviews of ammo before, usually with a chronograph and some ‘rest’ shooting, but this time I decided to do a little different test and run them through a USPSA competition to see how they performed outside of a range. First, good luck finding it. I’m sure when Lucky...

When it comes to gun reviews, I’ve started to shy away from them. With the Wrath-Of-Tam hanging over my head, it’s difficult to avoid phrases like “combat acceptable accuracy” and honestly, there are people out there much better suited to understand the important details of a firearm so that people can argue over full length guide rods and whatnot. However, when I was approached to T&E the Colt Delta Elite, I couldn’t say no and now my write up is finally online. Let me say that the only...

I am now the proud owner of a Crimson Trace CMR-201 Rail Master™. I am an unabashed fan of Crimson Trace products and have several of their lasers on my pistols. I’ve always preferred them over other companies’ lasers because of their philosophy of ‘positive grip = laser on’. Generally, this means molding their lasers to fit on the frames of the more popular pistols or replacing their handgrips altogether. However, there are times when the infinite configurations of every pistol & rifle...

There’s something relaxing about sending lead down range. The gentle *pop*pop* of the rifle, the soft breeze from the air handlers, and the refreshing scent of spent gun powder create an almost Zen-like atmosphere. It’s not all peace and tranquility though. While the act of placing angelic little holes in paper well out of your reach is calm and serene, getting all your loose gear to and from the range can be frustrating. Trying to hold onto your rifle, extra mags, and ammo while walking from...

Back when I first got the competition Apex Tactical  Action Enhancing Kit, I was hoping that at some point, I could also get the nice aluminum trigger that came with the Forward Set Sear kit (which I eventually replaced it with anyway). I contacted Apex about selling just the trigger, which is really, really nice, and it looks like you now can do just that.

Since one of the larger points to come out about  in the “How do you like your reviews” post was “Yeah, nice one time outing.

Took the Colt Delta Elite out this Friday for its first outing. Alas, there is a major design flaw in the firearm that presents a serious safety issue – I think both Laughingdog and I suffered from pulled cheek muscles smiling so hard. Holy moley that’s a fun weapon to shoot. My loads are a bit hotter than factory, but it ate them up just fine. The report was concussive yet totally controllable and the pistol was dead accurate. That was proven by Laughingdog punching the same spot over and...

Half the recoil. Tonight I’ll be taking out the Colt Delta Elite for the first time with reader and brownie making king Laughingdog.   I kept meaning to take apart the magazines since both of them seemed to bind up pretty bad when loading them, hopefully I’ll have some time when I get home to fix it so the range trip isn’t frustrating. The pistol itself is rather well put together and I look forward to making large fireballs with it. Much more info to come.

Tam shot hers and has good things to say I still can't get over how mild this gun is to shoot.

When it comes to guns, I am very utilitarian. I want to pull the trigger, have the mean gun go boom, and a hole appear where I was aiming. If I can’t shoot it, I don’t want it, so pretty guns or firearms with historical value have no place in my gun safe. However, when it comes to the KRISS Vector, I go full retard – I don’t need it, it’s not practical, I can’t own the ‘fun’ version anyway, but none of this matters.

No switches, gizmos or doo-dads to muck up your draw stroke.
