The M2 model is an extension of the Benelli Super 90 series introduced in 1986, and utilizes the Inertia […] Read More … The post TFB FIELD STRIP: Benelli M2 Tactical Shotgun appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Jhumpa Lahiri’s new novel ‘Whereabouts’ presents life within a mosaic of moments

By Rob Merrill Pulitzer Prize-winner Jhumpa Lahiri is back with what is sure to be one of the more unique “novels” of the year, “Whereabouts.” Readers can debate in book clubs whether it’s a novel in the traditional sense, but it sure is novel in the original sense. Written in Italian and then translated by the author into English, “Whereabouts” features an anonymous first-person narrator who reveals tiny slices of her life in the course of 46 very short chapters with names like “At the Station”...

Biden’s Gun Control Wish List, the Most Anti-gun President in History

When Joe Biden released his plan for gu...

Yamaha's original Virago from the early Eighties was an unusual cruiser in that it didn't just completely ape Harley Davidson design language. There were no fake rocker boxes on the engine, which instead seemed to emphasize its overhead-camness. Further, since the bike used a backbone frame with the engine as a stressed member, it was just kinda hanging our there for all to see, with no downtubes on the frame to obscure your view of the mechanicals. As you can see, it makes a great base for t...
