Avery L7660-10 Laser Mailing Labels (Microsoft certified)

I compiled a collection of photos of my friend, and then burnt it into a writeable CD. I planned to give it to her as a birthday gift, however I realized that the CD face is very unappealing.
So I started looking out for ways to design and print on the …

Ruger SR-40 handgun

My Ruger SR-40 is the first handgun that I bought, and I do not ever plan to sell it. I have shot close to 1,000 rounds through it, and it has never jammed on me once.
The significance of that kind of reliability stood out to me recently …

DRT TerminalShock 9mm Luger JHP ammo

When it comes to purchasing ammunition, there is a distinct difference between what you’d use to practice with and what you’d carry to actually defend yourself. Over the years, I have found that DRT TerminalShock is great self defense ammo so long as you know about one drawback to …

Remington UMC ammo for 9mm Luger

Herter’s Select Grade ammo for .380 ACP

TulAmmo bullets in 9mm Luger

These bullets should seriously be labeled “for range use only.” I can find TulAmmo 9mm Luger bullets around here for around $9 for a box of 50 — that’s cheap for even 9mm shells. Sadly, there is a reason these bullets are so expensive — they’re hit and miss …

PMC Bronze 380A ammo for .380 ACP

Winchester SXZ ammo in .380 ACP

DRT 40 S&W 105gr Terminal Shock ammo

Let’s face it — the thought of using a handgun for self protection is unpleasant. Incredibly unpleasant, in fact. When we talk about “self protection” when it comes to handguns, we’re talking about shooting — and potentially killing — a human being who is threatening your family or yourself.
Still, …

Hi-Point Pistol Laser by LaserLyte

Let’s face it — a Hi-Point pistol is nothing more (or less) than a very cheap gun that works well after you put 100-200 rounds through it during a break-in period. The good news about those inexpensive Hi-Points is that accessories also tend to be cheap.
Take the LaserLyte Hi-Point Pistol …

Board Dudes 2′ x 4′ hobby cork roll
