LaserLyte Laser Training Target System Review
Target system that shows and records laser bullet strikes for firearms training. Use with the laser bullet.
Homak Pistol Box Review
The larger safe (Homak HS10036684) has much more room inside for gun storage. If you're going to buy one of these safes I would recommend the larger one. For an additional $10.00, it is well worth it.
Fingerprint Gun Safe Review

Hatch Patrol Duty Bag D1 Review
Review & pictures of the Hatch Patrol Duty Bag D1. Model JH-BG-D1BAG-1010447 by Hatch.
12 Gauge Snap Caps Review
Great safety device. Allows you to dry fire your shotgun in complete safety. They are right when they say that these snap caps cannot be mistakenly for live ammunition. You can see right through these things.
  A-Zoom Snap Caps, 38 Special Review
Great safety device. Allows you to dry fire your revolver in complete safety. These snap caps cannot be mistakenly for live ammunition. These snap caps do have their uses. They are excellent for use in practice loading..
  Safailand Speed Loader; 38 Special Revolver Review
The concept of this speed loader is great. You simply push the loader into the cylinder of the revolver and all of the rounds automatically release into their respective chambers making the process of loading a revolver quick and easy. When it works, it works great. (Shown with my 357 Magnum Revolver).
  Bianchi Speed Strip, Caliber 38-357 Review
This speed loading strip for a revolver may not be as fast as other speed loaders but it has its' advantages. The speed strip is extremely small and light weight.
  HKS 36 Speed Loader Review
I own three types of speed loaders for my 357 Smith & Wesson revolver. I have a HKS speed loader, a Safariland speed loader and a Bianchi speed strip. Of all three favorite and easiest to use at home or at the range is the HKS 36 speed loader.
  UPLULA Universal Pistol Magazine Loader
One size fits all. No spacers or adjustments. Easy and quick loading. Highly reliable. Loads all 9mm, 357, 10mm, 40 and 45 caliber rebounds and magazines.
  Bushnell Gun Laser Boresighter Review
The Bushnell laser boresighter is adequate for the job for most shooters. I would rate the overall quality as fair. The first thing that strikes you is that it is entirely black plastic which makes reading the markings and stampings on it very difficult.
  Hoppe's BoreSnake for Gun Cleaning Review
The Hoppe's Boresnake pistol cleaner is a great product to keep in your range bag. I own two of them. One for my .22 caliber handguns and one that fits my 357 magnum revolver as well as my 9mm pistols.
  Remington Bore Light Review
The Remington bore light is ideal for inspecting rifle, shotgun and hand gun barrels for obstructions, rust and pitching. The soft LED light eliminates intense glare which effects the ability to see copper jacket fouling in rifling and plastic shotgun buildup in barrels.
  Break Free CLP Lubricant Review
If cleaning your guns has turned into a chore instead of a joy it's time to start using Break Free CLP Lubricant. Since Break Free CLP cleans, lubricates and protects all in one step, cleaning your gun takes less time and you save money.

Rem Squeeg-E Pull-Through Barrel Cleaner

Pistol Grips From Bicycle Tubes
Last week a friend gave me a piece of bicycle inner tube to make a grip for my Ruger LCP. He used it on his Kel-Tec .380 and said it turned out well. He showed it to me and it looked like a store bought grip.
AOS Safety Professional Ear Muffs Review
The AOS Safety Professional Ear Muffs appear to be well constructed and made from high quality materials. They're not one of those electronic types of earmuffs and have no batteries or electronics at all.

Will A Wet Bullet (Ammunition) Shoot? Will A Wet Bullet (Ammunition) Shoot?
I wanted to know if ammunition that has been submerged underwater for a week would still shoot. So I took a some rounds 22lr, 380 and 9mm Luger ammunition and placed them in a bowl of water for one week. I then went to the range and fired each round.
