About JB

I am an Endowment Member of the NRA, and have been around firearms my entire life. I have seen them used in many ways, from taking doves in a cornfield to action in the Afghan mountains. As an eight-plus year service member, I have a healthy respect for firearms of all kinds and understand that they may again be necessary to help define this great nation of ours. I believe in the God of the Bible. I believe in the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman forever, and in the rearing of children given the opportunity to believe the same. I believe a husband and father is ultimately responsible for the health and safety of his family and that he should provide both to the best of his ability.

FN MK1 Shotgun Review

One of my articles a good while back took a look at FN’s FNS-9 handgun. I’ve had the opportunity to train with and employ a few of the machine guns FN builds and I’ve had the chance to train with and employ their ARs. All that remained to round things out nicely would be to […]

Don’t Talk Yourself Out of a Good Thing

If you’re new to the world of shooting tools, there are probably some fundamentally true yet annoying witticisms that you continually find yourself running across. As you dig deeper you’ll soon find out that a disparagingly large percentage of such modern sagacity is in fact either a rough rewording of centuries old philosophy or a […]

Don’t Let Advertising Go Too Far

How great is it to live in a country where you can walk into a store and have just about anything ever written about firearms at your fingertips? These days it’s easy to get caught up in how jacked up things seem to be, but stepping back and breathing in that sweet American air is […]

Diversity is the Spice of Life

If you’re anything like me, and may the Good Lord help you if you are, you may not have one particular favorite flavor of firearm. With the selection of quality guns available on the market today it would sure be easy to walk up to the counter and say, “Um, yes sir, I’d like one […]

Light Sources Are A Must

The other day I came home from a harrowing venture out into the deepest, darkest pit any homeowner can find himself or herself in; my local home improvement store. Having survived the experience heavier in the truck bed yet lighter in the wallet, I decided to take some time and mull my plans for the […]

Stress Shooting Drills: Tough Realistic Training for the Real World.

Not everyone who has an interest in firearms has the funding to take a new training course every couple months. There is no substitute for professional instruction in this department, and if you’re a new shooter and are concerned that the research you’ve been doing isn’t quite cutting the mustard you’re right. Put yourself through […]

A Christian’s (Current) View of Concealed Carry

Recent pursuits in expanding my biblical education have, to say the least, stirred the pot in my brain-housing group. I was raised in the church and, now that I’ve figured out how to get my wild streak contained in the “Break in Case of War” cabinet, have a pretty decent foundation on the subject. One […]

How To Be a Well Armed Woman.

There seems to be a common misconception in the firearms community that it’s more difficult for a woman to carry a sidearm properly than it is for a fella to do the same. Let me tell you that the generally smaller build, smaller hands, and more complicated wardrobe of a lady are no bigger obstacles […]

SlySteel Knife Review

I have written a couple of articles in the past discussing the perks of having a good knife within arm’s reach. While I’m somewhat of a hobbyist, I think it’s fair to say those articles stuck with practicality, reliability, and function over shock and awe. Shoot, most of the time a simple little belt knife […]

5 Reasons to Carry a Concealed Handgun

We’ve posted articles in the past that have been about types of firearms to carry, calibers of firearms to carry, other tools you may need, and posts about not even needing to carry a gun to understand and support the 2nd Amendment. As is true with any subject, it’s difficult to write an article while […]

But What to Wear?

For the modern armed freeman, conceal-ability ranks very highly on the “Should I Carry This Gun?” checklist. Most of our daily activities require us to come in remarkably close proximity to the multitudes of “sheeple” who, in the unlikely event that one should happen to glance up from his or her toes long enough to […]

Does Old Fashioned Mean Ineffective? Make the best choice for you.

There are many criteria that must be met for a military to be effective. Staying on the cutting edge in as many aspects as possible is paramount to success. From training to transportation, from protective equipment to weaponry, a large portion of the fight is conducted before reaching the battlefield. Fortunately for some and to […]

The Body Follows the Head, An Observation on Mindset

Some of you may recognize the saying, ‘The body follows the head’. Generally intended to teach people new to physical confrontation how to prioritize their efforts in gaining a dominant position, I believe I’ll be stealing it for a few minutes to illustrate another extremely valid point. You may recall an article I wrote back […]

Which Knife to NOT Forget?

Recently, I penned a short piece on the importance and value of a good knife or two consistently carried on the belt or in the pocket. While hardly groundbreaking wisdom, wise words reiterated for the modern reader are never wasted. A shortfall in the article was brought to my attention in recent days; I had […]

Select The Right Gun For You

Portability, size, and performance are considered in almost everything we deal with. Automobiles are evaluated by their weight-to-horsepower ratio. It doesn’t matter if a car has three hundred horsepower, if it weighs four tons it won’t be as fast as a two hundred horsepower car that weighs one ton. The same principle applies to you […]

Don’t Forget the Knife

From what we’ve been able to uncover, the majority of the readers of this post spend their valuable time here to learn how to be prepared, or to compare their methods and strategies for being prepared and sharing with the rest of us. In my opinion, one of the most forgotten and overlooked tools easily […]
