    A Giant Has Awoken: Resistance in the Blue Zone

    Handgun cartridges are small and ineffective. They are better than nothing, but shouldn't be considered home defense weapons. Can they be? Sure. Beats a stick anytime. But if a person wants to defend their home the best purchase they can make is a 12 gauge or better shotgun, or a rifle that...

    Tuckable Holster? (PICS??)

    Bersa Thunder 9 UC Pro. Glock 19 sized compact. But, even though the name is "ultra compact", I think 'medium framed carry gun' is a more apt description. It's nowhere near as small as, say, an LC9 (that I'd consider ultra compact).

    Alternating ammo in mags?

    This is something my grandpa used to do. He owned a gun store, and alternated the weights of his hollow points in his "cash register gun" (.32spc semi-auto from the early 1900s! And a .44spc revolver). The idea being that whether he needed a lot of penetration, or a lot of expansion; he had...

    Check out Gander Mountain in Fenton

    At least for right now, whatever it is, they have it in stock. TONS of .22, .380, 9mm (included cases of 250 for $70), .45, you name it. And what appears to be hundreds of pistols in stock (as opposed to my local gun stores which might have 3 or 4 in stock). Link Removed

    Crazy price differences!

    Just bored the other night looking through indoor ranges (I have a range I use, conservation range down the road that's free!). Noticed on the western half of the state that are half as much per-hour and for membership than on the eastern half. Also got me looking at CCW classes. $50~$85 in...

    Should I get an out of state CCW?

    I see a few folks advertising classes for Florida, Utah, etc. CCW classes. What's the advantage? Any reason I should pursue those permits instead of a MO endorsement? -John
