Hazmat Holster Works NV3 Glock 19 A/IWB Holster Review


A good holster is something that is an absolute necessity for anyone that owns and carries handguns. I have lost count of how many holsters I actually own and I’m sure many of you are in the same position I am. I always seem to find a holster that combines MOST of the things I want but never all of them. But, what makes a holster good can vary based on ones needs and desires. For me, a good holster has solid retention, comfort, stability and, of course, the ability to conceal a firearm well. I have found exactly what I like in the Hazmat Holsters NV3 holster. It has a great combination of all of the things previously mentioned and it has great styling as well!

Mossberg Patriot .30-06 Review

About a month ago I saw a deal that was going to be very difficult for me to pass up. The package was quite enticing and was going for a great price. It was a Mossberg Patriot with a walnut stock accompanied by a Vortex Crossfire II 3x9x40 scope. They offered multiple calibers such as .243 win, .270 win, .308 win, .30-06 sprg and of course .300 win mag. Being an avid deer hunter for a long time, my interest was peaked. Could it be? A solid, name brand rifle with a great scope as a package deal for $499? I had to investigate further.

Love and a .45


It was cold, actually, it was damn cold outside. If I recall correctly, it was the middle of February and there was about an inch of snow on the ground. This was almost two years ago and the day that I took my romantic interest (now fiancee) out to my family farm for the first time. Now, your average person doesn’t necessarily enjoy not being able to feel their toes after ten minutes outside. Come to find out, she was absolutely your average person in this aspect. But, the thought of frozen toes didn’t phase me when I knew I was going to be able to put some rounds down range that afternoon.

Removing Deep Gun Rust (and Bluing) at Home with Vinegar


As a trained gunsmith, I find restoration and refinishing to be very rewarding work. I love the feeling of taking something worn or neglected, hand refinishing, and restoring it to some of its natural glory. Naturally, I spend some of my free time browsing pawn shops and used gun stores for neglected treasures. Recently, I found one; a Used Mauser HSc pistol in 7,65mm Browning for $145.

The big problem with the handgun is that it was sorely neglected. It was rusted to the point that serial numbers and other markings were almost impossible to identify and it was evident that the rust had begun to take deeper hold, pitting the metal. It wasn’t even immediately clear whether it would be possible to restore it or even safe to fire it, but for the price and the uniqueness I decided to take a chance.
