Making the switch (continued)

Tuesday, December 3rd, 2019

I avoid public ranges. However, the weather wasn’t cooperating all week and I had to go shoot the Zev. The range was replete with all the stereotypes. To my right, two older fellas sharing a lane and their groups with their 1911s looked like someone was patterning a shot gun. To my left, some guy […]

Making the switch . . . back

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2015

Tam is suiting up with a G19 now, instead of the M&P. T Bolt says it could be a new trend, particularly if I do it. Well, I carried Glocks for years. I doubt I’ll switch to anything anytime soon, for a few reasons: Switching guns is expensive. Sure, you can recoup the cost by […]

Making the switch

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014

Again. I have carried all manner of different guns. Different sizes, different methods. And I’ve written about most of them. I’ve changed methods because dressing for work changed. I’ve changed because something neat struck my fancy. I’ve changed because I realized that a 45 isn’t that much better than a 9mm. I’ve changed because I […]

Making the switch

Monday, July 8th, 2013

Working slowly toward dumping Google, but it his proving difficult and probably won’t be complete until October when my phone contract is up. But more reasons to avoid the “don’t be evil” crew: The Bluebox Security research team – Bluebox Labs – recently discovered a vulnerability in Android’s security model that allows a hacker to […]

I’m pondering ditching completely. First, I’ve always thought their ethics were questionable despite their don’t be evil nonsense. But now, it’s just creepy. I’m still a bit annoyed that they’re pulling Google Reader. So, the issue is that I used their product and have liked using it for years. I got accustomed to using […]

JT on 9mm v. 11.5MM. Were I to live in a ban state, I’d likely carry 45ACP just because the slight increase in performance of the round and count doesn’t matter.

Making the switch

I’ve decided to pull the trigger on my conversion back to 9mm. As part of that, I’m going to switch to a Glock 26. This means that I no longer need the Glock 30. Anyone want to trade? I’m getting out of the whole rig and will replace it with a comparable rig for a […]

Making the switch

Monday, November 28th, 2011

I am now sans .380. Moving to a pocket 9mm. I have a PM9 as a loner and I like that I can hop on Amazon and order a holster for it. Holster hasn’t arrived yet so I’ve not got to try out pocket carrying a larger gun. But it handles and feels nice. Update: […]

Making the switch

Thursday, November 10th, 2011

No secret that I really like my Kel-Tec P3AT with Lasergrips. But I’m thinking about switching to a pocket 9. I know folks like their PF9s and some folks pocket carry them. I figure the switch would mean one less type of ammo to stock up on and, of course, a 9mm has more oomph […]

So, I’ve been, as time permits, adding stuff to the new Zev: A while back, I wrote a post on Making the Switch (sidebar here). I mentioned switching from the wrong caliber to 9mm and so on. Some time soon, I’ll detail why I made the switch back (still keeping the right caliber) to the […]

Life in the future

The future is stupid. Is your dogs Halloween costume sexist? No. And you’re a moron. The Paper of Making Up the Record on what to do if your doctor tells you you should lose some weight: Consider telling the doctor you feel upset or distressed, Dr. Puhl said. If you are feeling judged, let the […]

Just buy the plastic guns already

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2016

Bureaucracy at work: Gen. Mark Milley has used recent public appearances to criticize federal acquisition guidelines that all services must follow when choosing and purchasing weapons and equipment. During a March 10 speaking engagement at a conference in Washington, D.C., for instance, Milley chastised a bureaucratic acquisition system for making it overly complicated to field […]

S&W and Ruger to California: No sales for you

Sunday, February 22nd, 2015

Put aside the photo of someone with their booger-hook on the bang-switch while pointing it at their hand. FoxNews: A new gun law proponents say helps law enforcement has driven Smith & Wesson and Sturm Ruger out of California, and affirmed the suspicions of firearms rights advocates that the measure is really about making handguns […]

The Kool-Aid has gone to the top

Monday, June 4th, 2012

At the GSSF match, I ran into Mike who was anxious to tell me that Patrick A. Rogers (yes, that one) had done an article in SWAT magazine announcing he was switching from 45ACP to 9mm. I’ve been making the switch for a while now. I now have one 45 caliber handgun that I keep […]

Good thing it wasn’t a 50 caliber or it would have killed everyone on the plane! Apparently, a pilot had a negligent discharge on a plane (the press uses words like accidental and the gun went off, both phrases that have roughly a 99.1%* chance of being utter bullshit). PGP has more. I think initial […]

Shot Show News

Thursday, February 16th, 2006

Though it’s lacking in photos, Defense Review has some quick hits from the SHOT Show. Colt is making a gas piston type of rifle, which I assume is an AR-15. The new EOTech’s will come with a throw lever mount and have been raised a bit. And, my personal favorite piece of sex, is the […]

Only at Wal-Mart – 2

Monday, July 18th, 2005

It’s sort of neat how you can figure out news and trends through wild-ass speculation just by shopping. I told you guys about how I learned from the sporting goods guy at Wal-Mart that ammo sales were up. Yesterday, I learned more from the friendly neighborhood Wal-Mart sporting goods guy. Since ammo is at a […]

Behold, the Raging Rinos, created by The Commissar for secular and moderate conservatives who don’t drink the party Kool-Aid on issues such as whether it’s legal for dudes to diddle dudes and all that God business. Republican, without all the crazy. J.D. has kicked around many logos for the group, following some issues with the […]
