Turkish Delights (Bad Pun!)

This week we head to GUNSITE to shoot the newest from Military Armament Company, a new “retro-oriented” brand from SDS Imports. Included is a super 1911, the JSOC, and two of the best value, best shooting semiauto shotguns available, the MAC M2 and the Mac 1014! Also, how about a Re-Declaration of Independence?

Dialing in the Long Ranger

This week Michael shifts over from the .405 1895 to start dialing in the Henry Long Ranger in 6.5 Creedmoor. Also, it’s time to get back to work with the Taurus Raging Hunter in .460 S&W Magnum.

Accessories That Work!

This week Michael looks at D&L Sports amazing S&W grips, the first 10/22 build off the new Luth-AR MCA chassis and a novel system for creating a take-down AR!

Are You a Victim of Normalcy Bias?

Sometimes your mind can play tricks on you, and some of those tricks can put you and your family at risk. Michael has some thoughts. Also, why are cities and states challenging the Supreme Court?

The Nearly Perfect “Medicine Gun”

After years of waiting to get a Winchester 1895 lever gun in .405 Winchester, Teddy Roosevelt’s “Medicine Gun” for lions, he finds the new lever in need of a few tweaks. Lever expert Andy Larsson from Skinner Sights is just the person to make those tweaks, and today we unveil the “Nearly Perfect Safari Rifle, Lever Edition.” Also, Dave Lauck’s amazing revolver fixed sights!

Run or Fight? Well, It Depends…

There are no easy answers in self-defense — each violent encounter is unique, fluid, responding to factors that you as the defender can’t know and chocked full of hidden “surprises.” So what is a smart defender to do? Pay attention…it’s all on you!

SBRs — What’s the Big Deal Anyway?

As the ATF’s ill-begotten “brace rule” goes into effect and lawsuits stack up like delayed planes over the Atlanta airport, Michael takes a close look at what makes the short-barreled rifle “more concealable” or “more deadly” than a pistol or a rifle…and comes up with nothing!

More Dangerous? Nonsense!

This week we take a look at the proposed ATF regulations on pistol braces and the nonsensical claim that SBR (or SBS or AOW for that matter) are intrinsically or inherently more dangerous than their longer-barreled brethren…or, a pistol of the same caliber! Plus, Steven Hunter’s THE BULLET GARDEN…buy it quick!

Wrapping Up SHOT 2023

In this TRIGGERED Special we finish our tour of SHOT 2023 and point out some additional favorites of ours. Triggered, previously SGO and Down Range...

The Rules of Gun Fight!

Sure, there are tons of Gunfight Rules on the Internet, but Michael breaks them all down into four simple statements (with, of course, a little bit of help from his friends)!
