SWFA SS 16×42 30mm Rifle Scope

This is a quick look at my new (to me) rifle scope I received today.  One of the problems that I have run into lately is more rifles than scopes.  I am constantly swapping scopes and moving them rifle to rifle.  As most of you know I am a huge fan of Sightron scopes and […]

Ballistic Rope Darts

The concept of a ballistic rope dart is relatively simple: the projectile consists of a solid metal core with a length of rope or cord attached to the base.

Rookie Reloader Chronicles (Rifle Brass Prep)

Very Rare S&W 940 Chambered in .356 TSW According to the S&W Catalog there were only 300 of these revolvers ever made. Not only are the revolvers and pistols hard to find, the 356TSW ammo is just as hard to locate. This makes it an extreme pleasure for me to be allowed to have this […]


What is 45AutoRim or 45AR The .45 AutoRim is a cartridge lucky to be in existence. Due to the lack of 1911’s as America prepared to enter WWI, Smith & Wesson and Colt produced revolvers chambered for the .45ACP. These new revolvers were designated as the 1917 by the Army. Even though the 1917 revolver […]
