    I'm pretty sure the baddies had guns then too. Oh I bet the world would get a lot more polite if everyone was packing!

    Empty Range Day

    Got to go to the range last week after a big snow storm and it was empty, so I finally got the nerve to try my 1911 TRP Op @ 50 yards and I was delighted being on paper! Sure it's a 5 inch barrel but I couldn't even see the target behind iron sights and they were landing. Sorry for the awful...

    Do You Avoid Places Where You Are Not Permitted To Carry A Firearm?

    We went to the Air Force Academy band Christmas show last week at the Performing Arts Center downtown and for the first time at that venue I had to go back to the car to disarm. I wasn't happy about it but we we're with family and friends and I did my best to not upset the herd. I usually...

    1 Gallon of CLP

    Luckily Colorado is really dry and rust isn't much of an issue here...just dust :( Ya'll took the wind right outta my sails but I'm gonna be stubborn and try it anyways. I'll have to sand either way if I paint so we'll just call it an experiment. Thank you for the heads up on the 1 year...

    1 Gallon of CLP

    I've had it in my wish list for a year or two now but I finally found a rationalization to purchase the gallon size of CLP! I'm installing a large solar array in the back yard and the support system is made of 3 inch schedule 40 steel pipe. I think it'll look great with a nice coat of CLP...

    Do you remember your first gaming pc you bought or built?

    The first video games in my house were the Atari back in the VERY early 80s. Tried to make a TRS-80 fun but eventually caved and got a C-64 in the mid 80s. After that it was all Pentiums, Intels, and AMDs. My current build is still running everything I need it for i7 4790k with a 980ti. I...

    MantisX dry fire training Poll

    You hit the nail on the head! While I still use my MantisX a few times a year, I mostly just lend it out for the fundamental reinforcement for my friends that don't dry fire and don't have range days on a regular basis. My buddy is using it right now to help his wife get those basics down...

    The Mantis X dry fire system was a game changer for me.

    11 Shootings from Last Month Have 1 Thing in Common

    I believe it was '02....20 years since I've been back. I've still got a couple friends there and they've kept me updated on the Metropolitan of Crestview. :) I've watched Colorado Springs blow up in that time too. I thought it was just everywhere doing it.

    What influenced you to purchase your first Springfield product?

    I went shooting with my best friend. He has a TRP Operator in .45 with the full rail. When I first picked up his pistol, I was put off by the super aggressive grips. After shooting just a single clip, I was absolutely in love. I started saving my pennies right then and about a year later we...
