to everything there is a season

By this time I’m sure that most of the folks who read what I put up here have noticed that I have taken an extended jaunt into the “gun nut” side of the house. I appear to have started a cycle of “weapon centeredness” and have decided to just post what I’m currently doing vs trying to cook up some more “cerebral” stuff to mix things up.

My interests and training/workout focus seems to ebb and flow between topics as the season goes by. I’m guessing my current direction is due to the influence of warmer weather, more outdoor activity and the approach of hunting season. When winter sets in you will most likely see the trend move back towards more philosophical and opinion centered posts.


what is accuracy?

An interesting post from a new (to me) blog I am following. Vuurowapen Blog.

Accuracy can be subjective.

For example, if I said that I had a pretty accurate rifle, but did not clarify that statement, one listener might think that I had a rifle that could shoot .5 MOA (1 MOA = 1.047″ at 100 yards), while another might think that I had a rifle that could shoot 2 MOA. The first guy might think that I based my statement on a single three shot group. The second might think that I fired ten shots.

Check this blog out if you are a shooter.


if you are looking for AR pieces n parts…

Take a look at Black Rifle Works Ltd.

I only ordered a few springs and a Magpul baseplate from them, but I was impressed with their prices, availability (they say “if it’s on the site it’s in stock”) and speed of delivery.

For shipping USPS Priority Mail, I had the stuff on my desk as fast as or faster than stuff I have ordered through the “Big Name” suppliers that came FedEx or UPS. Worth a look if you are in the market for stuff. I have them on my list of trusted suppliers.
