From the monthly archives: September 2012

That’s right. Lil’ Ebbs is back and this time ON HER OWN!!! Now hopefully it won’t be that long before she replaces me altogether. She’s sure to be much more popular (and better looking) than her old man.

It’s been roughly 15 months since she appeared in the Crickett .22 Youth Rifle review as [...]

I’ve got some simple expectations for all holsters I carry and test…

They need to be durable, providing years of use to justify the cost. They should not look ridiculous. I want good retention with a perfect fit for whatever pistol I’ve chosen to stuff in it. Leather, kydex, plastic, whatever. SKINNY, SKINNY, SKINNY. IWB or [...]

Advice for First Time Gun Owners

On September 24, 2012 By

If you’re not in the mood for witty ramblings just skip to the bottom for the question…

I’ve been having a lot of discussions with friends and strangers lately regarding the direction they should take in purchasing their first gun. Not necessarily first handgun, first rifle or first shotgun, but specifically their first firearm in [...]

Glock 22 Muzzle Blast at Dusk

On September 21, 2012 By

A couple months ago when Dad and I were out shooting the review on the I.O. Sporter AK we did a little bit of shooting at dusk and got some slick screen shots of the muzzle blast from my GLOCK 22 RTF 2, which by the way [...]

Seriously awesome limited run collaboration project going on between Mike at Black Forge Weapons, Andre at Risk Takers and the Conants at Para Patriot. Each has a pretty generous stake in this collab that I feel deserves the attention of Haus of Guns readers.

For just [...]

Our big time amigos over at Mission First Tactical have announced a new color to their polymer gun furniture lineup. SCORCHED DARK EARTH is available immediately from what I understand and just from the pictures I’ve been sent it looks sick. I’d call it a it of a blend between FDE and Coyote [...]

Jerry Tsai Resigns from RECOIL

On September 13, 2012 By

I got the word tonight on my way to a softball game that Jerry Tsai has stepped down as RECOIL magazine’s editor. I’d say the magazine and brand still have some rebuilding work to do.

Rob Pincus followed up with me via Twitter tonight and granted permission for me to simply copy and paste his [...]

UPDATE on the RECOIL Debacle

On September 12, 2012 By

David Reeder over at Kitup on Military.com has a good follow up to the recent and explosive RECOIL magazine garbage. 

My interpretation… No one has apologized, they’re issuing explanations and accusing the 2A community of blowing things out of proportion.

Rob Pincus mentioned a few hours ago on Facebook that Joe Galloway from [...]

Was scouring the YouTubes last night and came across this channels with some pretty cool boomsticks (including SBS NFA Form 1 shotguns and UZI testing. Yes, UZI). What I liked was the no-nonsense approach to testing as well as the short length of videos. I wouldn’t necessarily consider the findings of this pattern test of [...]

The Recoil from RECOIL…

On September 10, 2012 By

See what I did there? I should have had this written on Saturday night but my parents are moving to town so I’ve been a bit preoccupied with helping them renovate their new home to livable specs so as often happens with life, it’s had to wait.

This weekend my amigo Owen from Continue Reading
