The Right Tool for the Job

The right tool for the job
The Right Tools for the Job… I remember back in my younger years my first pistol was a Taurus PT 92 AF. I took such good care of that gun. I remember taking it to a local gunsmith in my area to have night sights installed. Three weeks later I got the call that the gun was ready for pickup. When I arrived at his shop my beautiful Taurus looked like it had been dragged behind a truck. The new night sights had nicks and dings and the slide had half-moon dents where the gunsmith had missed while beating on the sights. Continue reading

EDC Every Day Carry

IMG_0457.JPG
EDC or Every Day Carry refers to the philosophy or spirit of ‘preparedness’ that goes along with the selection and carrying of these items. Implicit in the term is the sense that an EDC is an individual’s personal selection of equipment, arrived at after deliberation, rather than a standardized kit. I pretty much don’t leave home without the items pictured above. I also carry a wallet keys and glasses. In the summer I usually opt for the smaller flashlight and I also have an EDC backpack that is usually close by. L to R Spyderco Paramilitary, Olight M22 Warrior, iPhone 6plus and Custom Glock 19

JC (Jon) talking about the new Taurus M3 80 revolver during today’s OnTarget radio show on 610WTVN. This could be a game changer for those who don’t like the recoil of the 38 special revolver. We have one for rent on the range so you can try it out if you want and they are in stock for purchase too.

NEW GLOCK 42

The new Glock 42 completely broken down before trigger work. Click on the image for a larger view.

Hey all, I did my first Glock 42 trigger job today. I have posted a photo below of the Glock 42 broken completely down. It is a great gun to shoot, very smooth trigger much better than the other 380′s in it’s category. It is comparable to the Kahr PM9 and the Kimber solo. It was very accurate at 25 ft with the stock Glock sights and great with follow up shots with very little perceived recoil. This would be a great pistol for a LEO backup or a very nice CCW summer carry gun.
