Cutting Remark...

Other than the original dovetail, there are four rear sight cuts you can do to your 1911-pattern pistol: Novak, Heinie, Bomar, and Wrong. — Tamara K. (@TamSlick) November 30, 2018 ...and once you go Bomar, you'll never go back. Because you can't. At least, not without welding up and re-cutting stuff. [Author: Tam]

Pistol Storage Device, Hold more Ammo on your Rifle/PCC – Review

Pistol Storage Device U.S.A.  –-(Ammoland.com)- The eruption of pistol-caliber carbines, their pistol variants, and AR pistols has greatly enhanced and expanded options we have for self-defense.  Pistol-caliber guns get the barrels they need for maximum energy and rifle-caliber guns are compact enough to pack away.  Law enforcement enjoys the ability to pack more punch with them on motorcycle patrols and more discretely while working undercover.  The drawback of course to low-profile concealme...

St Kilda - The Silent Islands ~ Alex Boyd

I still have this ridiculous idea that I want to go to St Kilda. Even though I know it's unlikely and not all 'otters and primroses' as Kathleen Jamie would say, or quaint little cottages gathered around Village Bay and the voices of the departed residents echoing on the wind. Nice coloured aerial shots of the island on a sunny calm day... You know me, I'm a sucker for all this, village children, women knitting on clifftops... The chaps gathering barefoot... I even bought the wool... ...

Pending Trump Bump Stock Ban Won’t Satisfy Enemies but Will Alienate Allies

Fine words. What does he think his impending regulatory ban with life-destroying punishments for noncompliance is if not an infringement? (Donlad J.

What was so exclusive about that, aside from sourcing the information to nameless “US officials familiar with the matter” is unclear – everyone watching developments has anticipated this happening soon due to t...

Ordered Forma from Indigo, received Clara HD, experiences with support?

Hi all! Long time listener, first time caller :). I am an eReader junkie and probably average 4hrs a day with my eReader (don't sleep much :/).

Iconic Flos IC Light Gets a Cool New Finish

The Flos IC Light by Michael Anastassiades remains as compelling today as it was four years ago when it first debuted—especially given the addition of a new slick black finish. A collection of floor, table, wall, and suspension lamps featuring a spherical diffuser perched precariously (so it would seem) on a cylindrical shaft, IC is an arresting piece that appears to defy gravity. The name derives from “Identity Codes,” an assignation used by the British police to signify different ethnic grou...

Creativity and Innovation Working Together, slow and steady

While I research discussions and actions surrounding creativity, a word that always seems to pop up along with, is creativity and innovation. So I’ve been digging into what innovation is and what it means for me as a creative and artistic person. Creativity and Innovation Innovation is the introduction of something new. I really like this explanation from the Merriam-Webster dictionary. It describes innovation, but as separate from invention, which are both intertwined within creativity… —- Th...

What to do about Mass Shootings

Mass Public Shooting Rate U.S.A.–-(Ammoland.com)- Deranged Americans with guns are killing people in groups. I realize that many readers of all stances on the subject of guns will regard this as a shocking admission in a gun magazine, but the facts matter.Note that I have not yet made any claim about the rate of mass shootings or about what we ought to do to prevent them. What I’m doing here is negating the claim of gun control advocates that those of us who care about gun rights ignore homici...

Alienating your customers hurts business? Who knew?

Apparently, Dick’s didn’t: Sales at Dick’s Sporting Goods dropped in the past three months amid backlash against tighter gun-sale restrictions following a mass killing early this year at a Florida high school. Revenue dipped 4.5 percent to $1.86 billion amid challenges in the company’s hunting business during the quarter through Nov. 3. Sales at stores open at least 12 months a key metric for the retail industry fell 6.1 percent compared to the prior year.

Maybe Don’t Buy Ikea’s $10 Smart Plug

A few months ago, we heard rumors of Ikea launching their own smart plug under their existing Tradfri smarthome product line. It’s now available in Ikea stores and online, but you probably shouldn’t buy it for a number of reasons. Sight unseen, $10 for a smart plug sounds like an amazing deal. After all, the next cheapest smart plugs worth buying are usually only $16-$18, and that’s during a really great sale. However, there are a lot of caveats with this Ikea Tradfri smart plug, unfortunately....
