From the Desk of John Rourke – November 13th, 2017


When loading magazines – Where are your eyes looking? For most, looking at your hands while they insert rounds in the magazines is common.

I suggest changing that practice so you are always looking around and allow the loading of magazines to become instinct NOT requiring you to visually focus on the ammo and magazine.

Consider the tactical advantage of being able to load magazines and at the same time stay focused on a door or an area of land.

It just makes sense.

I recently got word from a knife aficionado that after complete and thorough testing the Schrade Frontier line of knives is excellent. I have to admit I was a bit surprised. He said he literally beat the hell out of these knives and they held up amazingly. His testing has resulted in broken knives in the past. Needless to say, I am looking at the line with increased interest.

I’m really liking the Schrade SCHF38 Frontier.
