June 9th, 2022|

Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Just as a bullet leaving the muzzle of a gun creates recoil, making the personal decision to be your own defender brings new challenges to consider. Gun owners liability insurance provides coverage for damages resulting from negligence with a firearm. This means that such a policy would exclusively cover damages from unintentional harm. While this may be a worthwhile investment against such an incident, it doesn’t cover acts of lawful self-defense, which is what many people are looking for when they think of gun insurance.

May 30th, 2022|

When the end of Spring approaches, many national holidays are on the horizon, and looming large among them is Memorial Day.

5.7x28mm vs. 9mm

May 24th, 2022|

John Moses Browning: America’s Gunmaker

May 10th, 2022|

The hand of John Moses Browning is evident across firearms — everything from semi-automatic pistols, to shotguns, Winchester lever-action rifles, even military weapons such as the “Ma Deuce” .50 caliber machine gun that Browning designed — from the late 19th century into today. Browning’s designs took firearms from the single-shot rolling block rifle to the machine gun, and influenced almost all types of firearm design, particularly autoloading ammunition. His inventions included significant improvements to single-shot, lever-action, and pump-action rifles and shotguns, and he developed some of the first reliable autoloading pistols by inventing a telescoping bolt and integrating this bolt and barrel shroud into a slide.

Raising Them Right: Moms Training Future Hunters and Shooters

The pre-dusk Texas sunlight cast a glowing haze over the trees and fields, surrounding my oldest daughter and me as we sat in an elevated blind, waiting. Watching. Trying to be patient.

My daughter was 16 at the time, and it was far from her first hunt. Her ability to sit and wait wasn’t quite as developed as mine, but there she was, looking to put meat in the freezer.

Peace of Mind: Bail Bond & Expert Witness

April 26th, 2022|

The aftermath of a self-defense incident can be incredibly stressful. You may know based on what was going on at the time of the incident that the only way you could save your own life was to use force, but sometimes police or prosecutors may see things differently. It’s even possible that the details of the incident are just too ambiguous. Either way, good lawful people who need to use force to defend themselves, can end up arrested and even prosecuted, just for saving their own life or the life of someone they love.
