The TCB Total Carry System


If you carry a gun everyday it won’t be long before someone asks you, or you ask yourself, how can this be done more comfortably? Like most things in firearms culture, it is a constant balance. Speed vs. Accuracy Concealibility vs. Accessibility Comforting vs. Comfortable Retention vs. Access I have had many conversations (and seen…



We should have never let anyone in the country that had the virus to begin with. Now there has been one death and who knows how many more infected. The AP reports what is working in Africa. Why can’t we do the same? NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — Health officials battling the Ebola outbreak that has…

Slumberjack Carbine 2500


I am always on the hunt for the perfect pack: something that is small enough to carry all day over varied terrain, but large enough to pack all of my gear. It also needs to be lightweight and fully adjustable so that it’s comfortable, but durable enough to take a beating in nasty conditions. From…

Is This What We Shed Our Blood For?


“You can love your country without having to love your government” is a quote that some may see as quite strange being repeated by a former Green Beret combat-veteran, raised in the Conservative heartland of Texas and from a large military family, but these days it seems eerily appropriate. And as the laissez-faire attitude of…

Mexico Is Holding the Gates Open With Cash

'Illegals' protest at the capitol.

A Disgruntled Veteran


Dear Great People of America, There is nothing more amazing then a veteran returning to his hometown and seeing American flags flying everywhere. It does something indescribable to the heartfelt veteran who loves his country to see individuals and businesses showing their pride in the same country the veteran was so willing to sacrifice everything…

Have The Rules Changed That Much?


It has been nearly thirty years since I was single man and dating and now at 52 I find myself once again in that realm and I have discovered that it’s oddly different now from what it was like in the early 80’s. Man seems to have lost the ability and understanding of what chivalry,…

Back to Basics


I was visiting my in-law’s farm a few months ago and found a book sitting on the night stand. Back to Basics is an old Reader’s Digest book that has been republished several times. I found my copy at Amazon. I think I paid about $3.50 for mine and being a ‘Prime’ member I didn’t even…

One Voice


I’m but one voice amongst millions, and yet a voice that speaks openly about what I see and feel, a voice backed by freedom, a voice of the common man in America. I once thought how any one voice could be heard over all the noise we have created, over the plausible distractions generated to…

The Witch Is Back

Crazy Hillary

Hillary Clinton showed up in Iowa this weekend to support a local candidate and declared that she ‘is back’. After her pathetic showing as the Secretary of State (What does it matter?) and a US Senator, will the Clinton Kool Aid drinkers help her to the nomination for 2016? Time will tell.
