The P is for Pistol

Tue, 11/14/2017 - 11:24
In the last few years, USPSA has added two new divisions, one of which I think is stupid and one of which I think is pretty cool. The cool one is Pistol Caliber Carbine, and the dumb one is Carry Optics; we can talk about Carry Optics later. Today we’re talking about PCC and why … Continue reading "The P is for Pistol"

I’m going to make live videos a regular thing I do, because I really enjoy the interactive environment it creates with viewers.

Wed, 11/08/2017 - 10:39
A while back I started a 2,000 round review of the Gen5 Glock 17 on my YouTube channel, which as of last week is at an end. Before we dive into the guts of the review and what makes the Gen5 Glock tick, let’s discuss the scoring criteria of all our gun reviews.

My mustache is making me more powerful

Wed, 08/16/2017 - 10:50
Yes, I have recently grown a mustache. It’s pretty great, reminiscent of the glory days of cop mustaches. Somehow, it’s granted with me extraordinary powers as well. Allow me to explain. I have been testing 1911s for almost 2 years now, and for the majority of that time I’ve been using a Shaggy AIWB holster … Continue reading "My mustache is making me more powerful"

The 5 Worst Guns for Concealed Carry

Tue, 06/27/2017 - 16:57
I made a video that has already hurt some butts, because apparently people actually like the Honor Guard, even though it’s poo.

Performance by the numbers

Fri, 05/12/2017 - 17:53
I have been absent from youtube for some time, and absent from Gun Nuts for even longer. I’ll spare ya’ll the boring details, but this image is a big part of why I was gone: But anyway, enough of that. Today I wanted to talk about an interesting revelation I had while I was taking … Continue reading "Performance by the numbers"

I have two guns, one for each of you

Fri, 02/24/2017 - 13:28
In this video, I take a look at one of my favorite Hollywood tropes – firing two guns at once. But instead of just playing around, I take a hard look at whether or not it’s more effective than firing one gun with two hands on it. If you like what we’re doing, consider supporting … Continue reading "I have two guns, one for each of you"

Low light training

Thu, 02/23/2017 - 11:30
As I’ve mentioned in the past, I’m a huge believer in WML for defensive handguns, especially guns that are going to be used for home defense. In today’s video, I spend some time on the range working on manipulating the light in the dark and incorporating challenging into my training. Buy a Crimson Trace Railmaster … Continue reading "Low light training"

The Hollywood Headshot

Tue, 02/21/2017 - 15:40
Things that annoy me: in Hollywood movies and TV shows when they shoot dudes in the middle of the forehead. So I made a video explaining why.

Rock Island Armory/Armscor Tac Ultra Fullsize 1911 final review

Wed, 02/15/2017 - 18:02
Final score: 81/100 -10 points for failing the 10-8 Performance Test, -5 points for the extractor being out of tension from the factory, and -4 points for the 4 failures it had that weren’t ammo related. As an interesting side note, of the 2001 rounds fired, over 1200 were CapArms Superior Range Ammo in .45 … Continue reading "Rock Island Armory/Armscor Tac Ultra Fullsize 1911 final review"

The Gun Nuts Handgun Evaluation Protocol

Tue, 02/14/2017 - 17:59
As I wrap up a year of testing 1911s and get back to testing all manner of guns, I realized I needed a replacement for the 10-8 Performance 1911 Test. The 10-8 Performance Test is designed to test the extraction and primary function of the 1911 to ensure it’s suitable for duty. I was specifically … Continue reading "The Gun Nuts Handgun Evaluation Protocol"

CapArms Billet Lower $69.99

Tue, 02/07/2017 - 16:39
Yo dawg, I know that you can’t give a lower away but here’s a sweet billet lower for $69.99. That’s stupid.


Mon, 02/06/2017 - 11:51
I’m never going to be one of those people who gets up on a drum and preaches that the world is going to hell in a handbasket, because as bad as things are, they could be a lot worse. That being said, I did just buy a set of plates and a plate carrier. I … Continue reading "Capitalism"

Rock Island Armory 1911 mud test

Wed, 02/01/2017 - 15:18
Torture tests are stupid. Mud tests are stupid. I am stupid. So I did a mud test. I PROBABLY could have used a bucket and made the mud a bit wetter and gooier, but let’s be honest, dropping your gun then stomping it simulates 99% of most “worst case” scenarios. Support out nonsense!

Rock Island Tactical 1911 100 round challenge

Tue, 01/31/2017 - 17:48
Hey hey, time to shoot the RIA Tactical through the 100 Round Challenge. It was boring. Support us patreon so we can buy guns from manufacturers that hate Caleb! Want to buy an optic that’s nicer than the knockoff Aimpoint from Primary Arms, not as nice as an Aimpoint but still pretty decent?

Five Best Guns for Concealed Carry

Fri, 01/13/2017 - 11:37
Yes, this is a list video, and no I don’t feel bad about it. It is an honest assessment of the guns I regularly recommend for concealed carry. I actually end up recommending the Glock 19 a lot more than I recommend the P229, because people tend to balk at paying nearly $1,000 for a … Continue reading "Five Best Guns for Concealed Carry"
