Recipe for Raw

When people find out that we feed our dogs a raw food diet, they are much less interested in why we decided to do it, or what research we did before making the switch. Their number one question is: What do you feed them, anyway? Our dogs are fed an omnivorous diet. They eat a […]

A Major Setback: Prvi Partizan 7.62x39mm Soft Point Ammunition Problems

Tens of millions of AK-47 pattern rifles have been made and sold throughout the world. Shooters will benefit from this economy of scale: parts, ammunition, and accessories are widely available. There has been a big hiccup thanks to Obama’s re-election and the latest anti-gun campaigns in the US, but even now you can buy practice […]

Ammunition Prices Are Already Going Up

Ammunition Prices Are Already Going Up

Back in March of this year I wrote about how an election year drives up demand and prices for firearms and ammunition. We’ve been training a lot this year, and have been shooting a lot of ammunition, especially 9mm. I bought some Wolf Performance Ammunition (WPA) on sale and in bulk last spring from local […]
