“The recoil bruised my shoulder. The brass shell casings disoriented me as they flew past my face. The smell of sulfur and destruction made me sick. The explosions — loud like a bomb — gave me a temporary case of PTSD. For at least an hour after firing the gun just a few times, I was anxious and irritable.”
Lastly, the shooting range mentioned is no friend of ours it seems.
If you are from Ohio you know it gets very cold, bitterly cold, around December of each year and lasts through February and many times into March. That is about a quarter of our year, sometimes more, here in Ohio.
If you spent 25%+ of your life in cold snowy weather with multiple layers on, a logical person would assume you also train and practice with your firearms in said weather.
Yet, all to often here in Ohio we see people hang up their gun belts, rifle slings and shotgun shell holders when it gets cold and they gather dust until warm weather comes back around.
Don’t be one of these people.
Get out and train in the environment that you are might have to defend yourself in one day.
Cold weather does funny things to the human body.
Heavy coats and extra layers make drawing from concealment a chore.
Don’t fail to plan.
Train and practice in the conditions you are likely to face when you have to defend your life or the life of your loved ones.
We are taking a look at the PopsCabinet Shop rifle magazine speed loader for the AR-15 and AK47 magazines. This device allows for quick and efficient loading of magazines. While not a necessity, no something you are likely going to take to the range with you, it is a great device when pre-loading magazines at home for a class or range trip.
We were able to head out to the last 3 Gun of the year in Garretsville, Ohio. We had a great time and as the video shows improvement is still needed. On stage 1 we had a small head target at about 100 yards that I could not hit for the life of me.
Had a great conversation with Dallas of CherryBalmz Weapons Lubricants. I will be adding there grease to our tested lubricants in the very near future.
I can honestly say I have never spent as much time on a website just reading before either. Head over to http://www.cherrybalmz.com and read the FAQ and “History of Gun Lubricants” tabs.
Have you tried CherryBalmz?
If you have what did you think of it?
If you have not tested it would you want to?
Thinking of taking a different approach to the testing. Looking for a few people with different types of guns, especially finicky guns that do not run well.
