Gears of guns. There is 3.6 gun  to every 1 Gears of Guns crew member for most weekends we go out shooting. Every crew member averages 435 rounds per weekend which is about 121 rounds  through each weapon. Each crew member spends about $74 per weekend on ammunition. I guess that is the real reason we only do a big shooting trip once every few months. Hope you all are enjoying the site and don’t forget to comment and Email us!

Short break pt.2

As I said before I had to take a short break for some medical reasons but I think I am back for now. I had asked if anyone knew what this round was and ironically the one person who has replied with a comment was the the person who asked to see this round talked about. I found this this round under Google images stated as a .600 nitro express.Since when I posted this picture I have done a little more research on the .600 NE and I am now questioning if this picture really is that round. Here is the main reason behind my questioning of that picture… the size of the round above and this round seem to not match.  Maybe the man in the picture above has really small hands or it is a different round. (my best guess would be maybe a .700 NE? if you … What you’re missing….

I know i haven’t posted anything in a few days and I am sorry for this but it has been a crazy past few days. I promise that next week will be full of AMAZING guns, great stories and maybe if you are lucky (and I mean if your name is lucky) just maybe I will post a few videos and pictures from this past weekend of GEARS OF GUNS shooting adventures 😉 But until then who can tell me from this photo what bullet this is?

Glock 21 PT. 2

Glock 21 PT. 2

I had planned on posting this earlier but there was a new development in the story so I figured I would wait until today to talk about. As stated in the last posting my gun was firing Single Action. (meaning you have to bring the slide back into the fire position) I had figured out it was the slide release spring on my Glock and had figure I needed to have it brought into a gunsmith and get it fixed. (Something just doesn’t feel right when you know you sidearm isn’t functioning like it should much less cycling properly) so as I said yesterday I would post a photo of the damage and if you really don’t look at it very closely you might not see the pregnant spot on it but here it is.   I am not a fan of the new Wolf simply because it is not … What you’re missing….

Glock 21

Glock 21

My Glock 21 .45 ACP (Automatic Colt Pistol)  I have been watching different Glock torture tests for a few days now and I have been proud to say I own this gun however with that being say I need to tell you this story… About a year or so ago I was out with a few dear friends and family having a day of shooting. when I was given a few hand-load rounds made in the 1970s and one or two didn’t have any powder in them and as a friend of our was firing the weapon he hit on round without the powder in it followed by a new round which bubbled the barrel seizing the gun. No damage was done to the firearm aside from the barrel but being a Glock it has an easy to change barrel saving the gun. Now I have to get the gun … What you’re missing….
