Today I'm doing something different: I'm asking you to dig into your pockets and help out a fellow shooter, trainer, Second Amendment advocate, and genuinely good guy whose family is going through an unimaginably rough time.
My buddy Matt DeVito, his partner Sayra and her two children came home on Wednesday evening to find their house ablaze. They'd just finished moving halfway across the country to get out of the cesspool that their home state was becoming and make a new life in a more wholesome part of the United States, only to have a fire destroy everything they owned in their new hometown.
Matt, Sayra, the kids, and their family pets are all fine, but they now have no place to live and are starting over from scratch. A fund has been opened to help them rebuild, and I'm asking you to pitch in!
Any donation, of any size, will help. If all you can give is $10, that will still help! I know that tax season is a tough time for everyone — it certainly is for my family this year — but as my wife reminded me, our fiscal pain is temporary and our donation is going to help out some really nice people who need it a lot more than we do.
I often talk about gun owners being part of the shooting community, and this is a good chance to show the world what our community is all about. Maybe you know Matt from his famous YouTube videos, from his Instagram postings, from his company Downrange Firearms Training, or maybe you don't know him at all. No matter what your relationship to him, he's one of us and could really use our help.
How can you donate to the family? Just click here to go to the youcaring.com account for Matt and Sayra, and give what you can. It's fast and easy. They'll appreciate it, and you'll have the satisfaction of helping out one of our own. You'll also have my personal and heartfelt thanks!

Remington's only indigenous handgun, the R51, debuted last December to rave reviews from journalists in attendance. The reviews of production models have not been nearly so kind. What happened in between?

Believe it or not, this guy is one of the most die-hard Second Amendment fans you are likely to find. He even owns a company that makes AR-15 rifles and parts, and is one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. Yet there are a whole lot of people who probably wouldn't give him the time of day at a shooting range. That's ignorant, and I'll tell you why.

Thanks to the Ordnance Corner for a very nice review of my first book, the Gun Digest Book of the Revolver. It's always a pleasure to be able to bring quality information to people and do so in a way that is both comprehensive and understandable. (At least, that's what I hope I do!)
Though that book has been out a few years now, I still get many nice emails every week from people who have found something useful in its pages. I must say I take great pleasure when someone tells me that it helped them solve a problem or ignite a new interest in their old wheelgun!
If you haven't yet gotten your copy you can order one from the link on the right. While you're at it, take a look at my other revolver-centric book, Defensive Revolver Fundamentals. It's the book that teaches you how to use your revolver, whether snubnose or full size, to defend your life. Together they make a terrific revolver library!

The international exposition, of which the World’s Fair is the most well known example, has often been a showcase of architectural innovation and prowess. Some folks in the UK want to rebuild a particularly well-known structure from what is now regarded as the first “modern” World’s Fair. Read More...

One of the things I’ve been told to do to make this blog show up more prominently in search results is to make “SEO friendly” headlines — headlines with lots of keywords and a hook to get people to click. There are seminars, in fact, on how to write headlines that will boost your readership and catapult your blog to the top of Google.
I’ve certainly been writing more descriptive headlines for the normal, day-to-day posts here on the Revolver Liberation Alliance, but I refuse to do so for the Friday Surprise. I want the titles in this category to have a little mystery or whimsy; it would take all the fun out of it, at least for me, if they were engineered to get every last bit of engagement possible.
And so it is with today’s title. What could it be about? Read More...
