From the Desk of John Rourke – January 2nd, 2017


Well – here we go. I wonder a year from now what we’ll reflect back on and remember.

Looking at online gun retailers I see Para Ordnance 1911’s available fairly cheap. I had contacts with employee’s who worked in Para’s Pineville, NC plant who said things much improved at the company when Remington bought them out. The plant shut down a couple years ago when Remington consolidated operations in Alabama.

I’ve always questions the quality of Para but have no first hand experience with them. Several models are available online for $599.

I cannot fathom what it must be like to live in Israel. Surrounded by the enemy – people who want you dead. It must be extremely disappointing the stance the Obama administration and the UN have taken recently.

The magazine Ballistic is pretty good. I haven’t bought every issue but the photography is fantastic and some very good content.
