Blade-Tech S&W M&P Shield KLIPT and Nano Holster Comparison

We’ve owned Smith & Wesson Shield handguns for about two months. The ultra compact single stack 9mm pistol is easier to conceal than our usual Glock 19s.

Left Behind

Left Behind

We play a lot of board games over here. Every Sunday at the least, and frequently several times a week. This means that we try out a lot of new games. Some of them make the cut, and some of them don’t. What’s interesting, though, are games that decline from games that we used to […]
