A Contemporary Sporty Belt Rig

Posted on 24 April 2014

He also brought a “western” belt that went with the revolvers that had cartridge loops (which made no sense to me for a black powder gun) and a knife sheath. It made me start thinking: this is a belt and revolvers from 150 years ago. Is there something comparable today? Not exactly, unless you get it custom made, BUT – you can build your own with completely contemporary materials.

Bones-Small Knife from Buck Knives

Posted on 21 April 2014

When I took the Bones out of the package I immediately commented on how tiny it was. I then heard a familiar voice on my left say something you never want to hear when you’re thinking about the coefficient of coolness for a new piece of kit. It was my wife saying, “Oh, that’s cute.”

Companion Sidearms for the Great Outdoors

Posted on 21 April 2014

I am not suggesting that handguns are the end all be all for carrying a gun for protection when in the wilderness. I happen to like my long guns too (and we’ll discuss a few of those as appropriate below), but for hiking, backpacking, camping, fishing, etc. it’s often good to have a “companion” along that is more comfortable to carry, less obtrusive, and better than trying to spit on that unfriendly critter or potential food source.

ATVs versus RUVs: Applications & Uses

Posted on 03 April 2014

I was recently invited to join a “writers’ conference” to explore the strengths and uses of ATVs and UTVs in the Anthrocite Outdoor Recreation Area in Shamokin Dam, Pennsylvania. Not only was it a gorgeous setting but I had a blast and learned a lot too. Hosted by Kawasaki, the event was educational, well planned, […]

Winchester Model 94 Lever-Action .30-.30 Rifle

Posted on 30 March 2014

Throughout most of my childhood I pictured myself on horseback, single-handedly slinging the rifle down and back up by the lever to feed in the next cartridge – because I had to hold the horse’s reins with the other. As I got older reality set in, but my fascination with the lever-action didn’t dwindle.
