TFB’s 12 Days Of Christmas: Silencers For A Silent Night

‘Twas the night before Christmas… something, something subsonic 300 Blackout. That’s the way the poem goes, right? One of the best parts about Christmas is thinking about how the generations before us celebrated the season in years past. Candles instead of LED lights. Wooden toys instead of iPads. Flintlocks instead of open tip match bullets. […] Read More … The post TFB’s 12 Days Of Christmas: Silencers For A Silent Night appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Hi! I have some PDF files I want to convert to kindle files on my Ipad but am running into an issue. If I load it as PDF, I can't highlight and save text, but am able to have the book cover.

Source 1 page TOC converts to 5 ugly pages

In this segment of Concealed Open Carry Corner, we are going to dive down the rabbit hole of open carry.

What’s A Gun Owning Liberal To Do? Political Choices?

What’s A Gun Owning Liberal To Do? Political Choices? Fayetteville, AR – -(AmmoLand.com)- Over the past couple of weeks, I have encountered a good measure of doubt that I can simultaneously be a “government-loving communist” and a supporter of gun rights.I am not a communist, and I have many complaints with our government—PATRIOT Act, corporate sponsorship of politicians, gun control, among others—but readers see through the lenses that they choose for their vision, and “communism” these days...

Installing SD card in Android: should I choose internal or external storage

Hi. I'm going to buy an SD card for my Android (LG D-415) phone. I've been reading about how to install it and it seems I'll be offered a choice between internal (where the card becomes a part of the phone's storage) or external (where the card basically functions like a usb flash drive to a PC). I've read where the internal route is really good because you don't have to be keeping things separate between the internal and external (SD card) storage. But what happens if the SD card is corrupte...

Only 230 rounds left to go. . [Author: Tam]

Santa’s Immaculate Conception and his Food for Thought

With my next post on Garden Rant officially due December 24, my first thought was a treatise on what Santa Claus might plant in his garden at the North Pole, where it gets about 24 hours of sun in the summer. Would Mrs. Claus be putting The Big Guy on a home-grown diet of celery, carrots and peanut butter to better enable him to complete his world-wide deliveries in a 24-hour period? Would excited children leave a few million carrots for Dasher, Dancer, Prancer and the gang on Christm...
