Put a laser on my Glock 40 about 2 years ago but never shot it with the laser on. Paid a visit to the pistol range yesterday. Not too shabby.
The 20 ft clusters were where I was aiming (including the throat just for kicks). The 50 ft grouping was intentionally aimed at the perp's right shoulder s...

As much as I hate the Feds sticking their noses in my business, I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that in this case, it only makes sense. Besides attracting law-abiding 2nd amendment peeps, it unfortunately attracts a dark element as well. If you want to catch fish, you start by finding a go...

Last time I ordered a steak, I asked for Medium Well. NY Strip. It's simply the way I like it for texture and taste. However, from the reaction I got from the waiter and my dinner partners, it almost made me feel like a social outcast.
Bottom line: that's the way I like it. It suggests that Rare ...

Not quite sure what category this falls into, but I really like African tribal music with good percussion and vocal harmony. Paul Simon borrowed this style on his "Rhythm of the Saints" album.
