These are some observations and conclusions drawn, based on my experience behind the gun counter during the virus crisis; the down-sides and up-sides in relation to firearms ownership, as well as the lasting, cultural effects in Canada.

What do you do to repair a gun stock that has imperfections? I recently gave a method a try I had not heard of prior; using pumice powder (along with linseed oil) to grind the surface in a gentle, fine manner. This was needed for a gun that is my prize possession; a Remington XP-100 […]
I found a partial set of these targets the other day (lost for many years) and decided to restore them to use again. Here's a short video of that process, along with a description of how they were used and where to get the cutting patterns to make them.
This is a shortened version of the full-length (2 hour long) video previously shared. This one is cut down to 19 minutes to make it more viewer-friendly, in hopes of giving people something to do while quarantined.
This is a short video celebrating the simple joys of shooting steel, consuming ammunition that’s inexpensive and enjoying the outdoors on public land. Shown in this video are a Winchester Model 94 (.30-30), a Rossi Ranch Hand (.44 Magnum) and a custom-made Ruger No. 1 (.45-120). All bullets used are cast. The Way to Native […]
This video explains the process of sharpening a hunting knife (and knives in general) using a simple method that has been around for years. This should be helpful for both beginners and the experienced. The Way to Native ChroniclesYou could say I’m a Christian of Calvinist bent, and not a crowd-follower.
This video relates to hunting equipment, but not sure whether it falls within the scope of the site. Seems to me it does (just barely), so I submit it for your judgement.
This is a short video showing how simple it is to make your own loading blocks for reloading. In this example I needed blocks for a cartridge that didn’t fit anything on the market. The plans for making the blocks are shown beside the video, so feel free to make use of them if you […]
This is a short video of a tactical shooting match called “Got Your Six” I competed in, about 4 years ago. Put on by members of the Canadian military, the proceeds went to helping First Responders afflicted with PTSD. I was honoured to spend a weekend with such fine people. Learned a lot – and […]
This video takes an in-depth look at ways to shoot a handgun that yield the best accuracy and the things you should avoid. If you want to shoot with great precision this video is worth your time, especially if you are using a magnum. Simulations are used to illustrate the main points and give you […]
When a revolver is relied on for protection, it’s a good idea to have at least one speed loader (preferably two) on your belt in addition to your holster. A speed loader lets you put another 6 rounds into your revolver in a short time – something that might be necessary in case of dangerous […]
This video shows the results of testing 3 rifles, to determine their penetration capabilities. Looks like the single-shot “buffalo rifle” distinguishes itself! The Way to Native ChroniclesYou could say I’m a Christian of Calvinist bent, and not a crowd-follower.
This video demonstrates how an inexpensive endoscope called the “Endosnake” can be used to inspect rifle bores. The device used is small enough to inspect even .22 caliber. The Way to Native ChroniclesYou could say I’m a Christian of Calvinist bent, and not a crowd-follower.
Think you’ve seen the subject of marksmanship discussed from every angle there is? Well, you’ve likely not seen the angle this video explores. We will take a dive into brain science and discover that what we see is not really what’s there at the instant in time we are in. We can use this slightly […]
In this video I explain and demonstrate the method I use for creating and maintaining a neat set of reloading notes with the aid of computer software. The Way to Native ChroniclesYou could say I’m a Christian of Calvinist bent, and not a crowd-follower.
This video provides you with detailed, step-by-step instructions on how – using common materials found around the home – you can make your own, exploded-view dioramas displaying the various components of a cartridge, especially if you already reload your own ammunition. In addition, you can use shooting trophies you’ve earned (if you have them) as […]
A method developed over 40 years, this video captures the entire procedure I use for casting bullets, followed from beginning to end. Shown is the ventilation technique I use, my mould pre-heating method, my bullet drop setup, fluxing with borax, tandem casting, bullet inspection, storage, sorting and more. A good video for obtaining an overview of the entire casting process and the tools required; one person's way of doing it.
