Glock 48 Slimline Carry Pistol Big Enough to Enjoy – Review

Glock 48, Slimline Carry Pistol Big Enough to Enjoy – Review USA –-(Ammoland.com)- The Glock 48 is the big brother of the also new Glock 43X. Both models differ from the original 43 in that they’re a hair wider. That means, while the 43X and 48 share magazines with each other, they don’t share with the original Glock 43. On the plus side, the 43X and this new Glock 48 give you a lot more capacity – 10+1 instead of 6+1 in the standard configuration. In fact, the only significant difference bet...

Barn Owl ~ Jim Crumley (and meet ours)

Let's be honest, I was duty-bound to do some pleasurable barn owl homework, and this little beauty, Barn Owl one of the 'Encounters in the Wild' series by Jim Crumley, published by Saraband Books, was a very happy find and a very enjoyable read. Some time ago I wrote about The Company of Swans by the same author, a book that deservedly sits on my Best Books About Nature shelf and Barn Owl will join it. Just to update... Having seen two owls in the pole box we have only been seeing one for a f...

I should probably do better about this

Tam on blowout kits: If you’re wandering around in public with a loaded gun on your person, but without at least minimal tools to stop a bleeding gunshot wound close to hand and some training to use them, I flat-out question your judgment. I have one in each vehicle, one at home, and one in the range bag. I rarely carry one on me, which could be a mistake.

Be smart

A conversation I have with my kids often consists of me telling them to shut and lock doors. “Why are you so picky about us locking the doors?” “It reduces the likelihood that I’ll have to shoot someone” Lock your damn doors.

Great deal on Blake Crouch's Dark Matter

I loved Blake Crouch's Wayward Pines trilogy. I'm about 200 pages into his later novel, Dark Matter, and I'm liking it just as much. It reminds me a bit of Wayward Pines in that the main character gets thrown into a bizarre world that is keeping me guessing. It also reminds me of one of my favorite science fiction novels of the past, What Mad Universe, by Fredric Brown. Right now, Amazon has the Kindle version of Dark Matter at a steep discount. The Wayward Pines series is on sale, too.
