This Week on Shooting USA – Steel Challenge 2021

Steel Challenge 2021 Nashville, TN -(AmmoLand.com)- Practical shooting in all of its forms boils down to speed and accuracy and the one practical shooting sport that tests those two elements exclusively is steel shooting. We’ve called it drag racing with guns. Draw and shoot 5 steel targets with time as your score. With divisions expanded to rimfire rifles and pistol caliber carbines, the times are now regularly setting new world records. Plus, the Arisaka Type 99 is now one of history’s guns...

TFB Review: Tara TM-9 DA/SA Striker-Fired Pistol

Since then, we’ve gotten occasional updates on this interesting 9mm hailing from the nation of Montenegro in southeastern Europe. Montenegro is a small country, just east across the Adriatic sea from Italy. Montenegro’s bordering […] Read More … The post TFB Review: Tara TM-9 DA/SA Striker-Fired Pistol appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Expert Advice: How to Throw an Impromptu Summer Dinner Party

There’s something about summer that invites spontaneity: one last quick dip in the lake before dinner, an afternoon drive to nowhere in particular, spur-of-the-moment dinners taken outside in the garden. Some of the most memorable summer evenings start out this way: an impromptu dinner party, just because it’s too beautiful to call it a night. (Or because company drops by unexpectedly.) How to pull off a festive dinner—to make sure there’s something to eat, and that it’s just a bit special—when ...

Why Start With Rest?

Five years ago, I began to work with my wife on a disciple-making plan for our church plant. We were reaching people who’d never practiced spiritual disciplines before, and I wanted to think about how to lead them to build the essential habits of the Christian life into their lives. We started with a surprising habit: rest. Technically, it’s the second habit, following one that talks about making time. We started with making time to build habits and then resting for a practical reason and ...

Frida Kahlo: The Complete Paintings Collects the Painter’s Entire Body of Work in a 600-Page, Large-Format Book

Most of us who know Frida Kahlo’s work know her self-portraits. But, in her brief 47 years, she created a more various body of work: portraits of others, still lifes, and difficult-to-categorize visions that still, 67 years after her death, feel drawn straight from the wild currents of her imagination. (Not to mention her elaborately illustrated diary, previously featured here on Open Culture.) Somehow, Kahlo’s work has never all been gathered in one place. That, along with her enduring appeal ...

Turbo Kitties!

A good camera and lens really makes a huge difference at the zoo. Even the "2x zoom" on most cell cameras is only about the equivalent of a 50mm lens on a full frame camera. The old style 80-400mm Nikon zoom I was using is available on the used market pretty cheaply for what it is, because it won't autofocus on D3xxx or D5xxx cameras that don't have internal focus motors. But that 400mm focal length will get you right in there with the critters. I thought about using a crop sensor body, ...
