On the July 4th I had posted my Independence Day/Patriotic themed Cool Guns of the Internet which featured a snazzy looking .22lr similar to this one. I wish I had the specs or the info on mine but nonetheless these rifles are cool.

Repost: Work Sharp Ken Onion Edition Knife Sharpener Review

I wrote a review on the Work Sharp Ken Onion Edition Knife Sharpener over at AtticusJames.com. I review how I was able to get a razor edge on all my knives with relative ease after learning how to use the Work Sharp sharpener.

Winchester back at it with the 1911 .45acp

BF-Win1911.5

Phil over at Thefirearmblog.com  showing off the new wooden box of Winchester “1911 .45 ACP”.

I published the Press release about the new line of Winchester ammo a few months back. I think Winchester is doing well by branding it with the WIN 1911.  I still hear from people less familiar with firearms, telling me they need to go buy 1911 rounds or AR rounds like somehow that means something with so many variants chambered in different calibers. Yes, there are plenty of reasons to assume that the firearm in question is its standard caliber, but I met a gentlemen out at the range one day who was very new to firearms and was very excited to shoot his new 1911 and when he went to load the rounds the bullets were too big, He had purchased a 9mm 1911 and when we went into the store he asked for 1911 ammo and was sold 5 boxes of .45acp.

Phil talks about it being a nice Christmas gift and I can see that, however at $140 for the kit I don’t see that the wooden box is worth $60 (based on a $20 50 round  box of .45acp). I like the box and it would be nice to look at, but the ammo inside is overly pricy for my taste.
