Modifying My Ruger 10/22

My Ruger 10/22 Rifle was one of the first rifles I ever bought personally. When I bought it almost 10 years ago after my wife and I got married. I bought it used from a guy and although I got a good deal and the gun was in OK condition. I immediately decided to replace the stock with a Tapco stock I bought from Cabelas. My personal opinion, the 10/22 looked way cooler then the beat up wood stock. Over the course of the last few years I have wanted to change the look from the Tapco stock to the READ MORE

You don’t Sell Guns, You Buy Guns

I’ve been taught that you do not sell guns, you buy guns. While many of my peers buy and sell guns so they can experience every type of gun as they “upgrade” what they have, I tend to disagree. I live by a completely different model where I see these rifles and pistols as investments and eventual items I will pass onto my children. Inheriting a Japanese Arisaka Type 99 Rifle  Recent events in my wife’s family lead to us going through my father-in-laws possessions to help clean out his house to get it ready to sell. As we were READ MORE

Gun Safe Lighting

I got my first safe about 10 years ago. It was a small 10 Stack-On safe I bought used on a local classifieds website. Over the years I filled that safe up  however I kept fitting guns inside as I could not afford a bigger safe. I then landed a pretty sweet job working for Sportsmans Warehouse running their website. That job came with a great hookup on gear including my next gun safe, a Yukon Gold 20 gun safe. That one is now close to filling up as well and I am looking at what my next option is. READ MORE

Concealment Solutions Cobra Holster

The One Holster To Rule Them All Like most people who own a pistol, I have way more holsters then handguns themselves. I have purchased a bunch from the big box stores. I have been given some as presents. And I have purchased some online after reading reviews. It have taken me a long time to get to the holster I am using now. There are a few different guns that I carry depending on my mood and circumstances. Every one of the guns I carry I use the same brand and model of holster. I was introduced to Jason over READ MORE

My SBR Build – Part 1

Dreams Come True I’ve wanted an SBR for a long time. Ever since I played more video games then was good for me I knew I wanted an SBR. Then when I got my own AR I wanted one even more. Then after working for a firearm company for about 6 months and being surrounded by MSR (Modular Sporting Rifles) all day long and seeing SBR’s come through our store quite regularly I knew it had to be. So it begins… That was 5 years ago. I started collecting the parts I needed clear back then. That was during the READ MORE

Suppressor and HPA

Decisions I’ve decided that for my gun of 2018, I am going to build an AR. I’ve got a particular design in mind and will share more of this build as it progresses in other posts. But one of the accessories I have gone back and forth over is whether or not to add a Suppressor onto it. I’ve always wanted a suppressor, but have never wanted to deal with that. I spoke with my attorney about setting up a Gun Trust, and realized it is actually pretty easy to do. Especially when your father is your attorney. Hearing Protection READ MORE

Hearing Protection

Prevention is Better then a Cure I have been shooting since I was a teenager! As I have gotten older I have shot more and more often. I shoot rimfire up to magnum rifles. I have shot both indoors and outdoors. Unfortunately it wasn’t until the last year or so before I finally started to use hearing protection. I discovered the company SportEAR by AXIL. The products they specialize in allow you to have the hearing protection in your ears that also allow you to have normal conversations. Before I discovered this company I used regular earmuffs or earplugs. Just READ MORE

Shooting the Sidewinder

I got to get out and shoot my Sako 300WM over the Christmas break. I actually decided to film the differences with my GoPro and my phone from different angles. I noticed a big difference while shooting not only with getting back on target but as well as with the sound. When shooting I used my SportEAR Custom 360’s. Without the Area419 Sidewinder Muzzle Brake my ears were fine. I have shot a few hundred rounds through the rifle and I have always been fine shooting it. A week later when I had the muzzle brake installed and I shot READ MORE

Check out Unlimited Bullets!

Unlimited Bullets is a great opportunity to get ammunition sent straight to your door on a monthly basis. There is nothing I personally hate more then going to the store to pick up some ammo and only to find out that they are sold out. During certain months it is harder to find that ammo. Over at Unlimited Bullets they have solved this problem. You pick the caliber you want and they start sending you monthly shipments of ammunition! I personally seem to wait till the night before I am heading out to the range to either reload the necessary READ MORE

Muzzle Brakes

Having shot my .300 win mag over the past couple of years and knowing I was going to eventually need something to help with the kick I have slowly been listening to others recommendations as to what they use. I have been fortunate enough to harvest a few animals with this rifle but also realized I had issues with follow up shots. I did quite a bit of research on muzzle brakes. I spoke with hunting buddies, researched online forums and blogs as well as posted on some long range shooting Facebook pages. I ultimately landed on the Area 419 READ MORE
