Models

This is going to be a little bit different than what you were probably expecting. I decided take some time to address the production of our rifles and the designation of serial numbers and models.

Selecting a Concealed Carry Pistol Part III – Safety

Another popular question regarding selecting a defensive pistol or a concealed carry gun is “do I need an external safety?”.

Terminal Ballistics. There’s probably few things that are more talked about and less actually understood than terminal ballistics.  So let me first define what I mean by terminal ballistics.  Very simply put terminal ballistics is what happens once a round has struck/entered it’s target.  So we’re not dealing with actually putting rounds on target here […]
