Shooting Lessons

Outdoor Life: My first formal shooting lessons came at the hands of an old West Point Major and sniper instructor. Now, almost 30 years later, a young Marine Sniper taught me new and improved position and technique. Rather than the classic, body-offset prone position that I’d learned during my youth, the Gunwerks instructor taught me to lie directly in line with my rifle, butt pad snuggled firmly into my neck-collar bone juncture. Legs should be spread wide, feet almost flat on the ground, with ...

How to Make Slime Without Glue

Learn how to make slime without glue or borax. I keep thinking the slime craze will end soon but it seems to keep on going! Luckily, this is an easy, cheap craft you can make with your kids and provides hours of fun. In fact, many recipes only take a couple of ingredients that you probably already have at home. There are so many variations to try using cornstarch, shampoo and toothpaste, even gummy bears! For more gooey fun, try this Newtonian fluid called oobleck, or create your own moonsand. ...

The Sucklord has dropped twelve new custom creations showing off some iconic male characters as females (although, who really knows what E.T. was).

Diamondback’s New & Improved DB9 Gen 4 – Video Review

Diaomondback DB9 Gen 4 by GBGuns U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- When the DB9 from Diamondback Firearms was originally released it was one of, if not them smallest and thinnest 9mm pistols in the world.  The feat of creating a pocket 9mm roughly the size of most pocket .380 ACP pistols however did not go without compromise or criticism.  Instead of appreciating that Diamondback had found a way to make such a gun, consumers complained. Most of the complaints were a simply matter of not understanding th...

Democrats Hate You More Than Your Guns, No Doubt

Opinion AmmoLand's Come and Take It Tee Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- Law-abiding American gun-owners, so viciously hated and feared by Democrats (and all other totalitarians) are slated to be the sole target of Democrats’ anti-gun/anti-freedom agenda as we approach 2020 elections.

Max number of Authors you're willing to cite?

I've played around with calibre a bit and know some of the basics. I know that you can have multiple authors for a book. But is there an effective limit for how many Authors you're willing to put into the author field on a book? Maybe 6 and after that you just cite "multiple authors" or something? I've got some anthologies, so they cite each of the authors. I'm not sure its a good idea to cite a dozen authors for one book. Oh, and there is no editor listed. Comments or suggestions?

If you want to hide spelling and grammar errors in a specific Word document without all of your other documents being affected by the setting change, then you’re in luck.

‘Bumblebee 2’ and Future ‘Transformers’ Movies Will Feature “A Little More Bayhem”, According to Their Producer

Last year’s Transformers prequel Bumblebee took a stripped-down approach to its story about an alien robot by eschewing excessive action in favor of an Amblin-style relationship between the eponymous Autobot and Hailee Steinfeld’s human character. But according to the film’s producer, they still haven’t quite landed on the right balance between character moments and action beats. In a new interview, Lorenzo di Bonaventura (who’s produced every Transformers movie thus far) says he plans to switc...

Why You Need a Gun

From Facebook:A couple years ago I was working security at a bar in northern Virginia. I overheard a table of college kids arguing about gun rights and gun control and it was getting far too emotional so I did what any sane combat veteran would do and attempted to exfiltrate. I must not have withdrawn as surreptitiously as I intended, because I was stopped in my tracks when a 5-foot-nothing brunette seemingly leapt in front of me and blurted out "excuse me, can you help us?"I'm sure I must have ...
