the things part2

When sitting down to pen this column, I flipped back to the “First Shot” page of the 2018 Everyday Carry issue to see what was on my mind 12 months ago. I actually do this quite often, but this one really grabbed me. Here’s part of what I wrote: As horrific as it is, public shootings are so common right now that they’ve all but lost the wow factor in the eyes of the national media. They come and go so fast through our news feeds that it can be diffi - cult not to become desensitized. We cannot allow ourselves to become desensitized—or complacent. It feels as if I could’ve written that yesterday. But I didn’t; I wrote it a year ago. It’s challenging to define exactly how many mass shootings have…

.32 h&r magnum

HISTORICAL NOTES The .32 H&R Magnum was the result of a joint project between Harrington & Richardson and Federal Cartridge Co. It was introduced in 1984 for the five-shot H&R Model 504, 532 and 586 revolvers. This was followed later in the same year by Charter Arms and its six-shot .32 H&R Magnum Police Undercover revolver, as well as the Ruger New Model .32 Magnum Single-Six and SP101 revolvers in 1985. The .32 H&R Magnum is simply the older .32 Smith & Wesson Long case, lengthened by .155 inch. Therefore, any .32 Magnum revolver will also accept and fire both the .32 S&W and the .32 S&W Long. This makes for a convenient situation, because the shooter has a choice of three different cartridges that will work in one handgun. Two loadings of…

letters to the editor

Long Live America’s Rifle There was a recent article in Gun Digest The Magazine covering all the AR-15 cartridges. What a great article! I remember the .30 Remington flub-up, and I agree that it’s a shame Remington didn’t properly market the cartridge and the necessary parts changes. It would truly have given the best of both worlds middle ground for the AR-15 platform. While not a cartridge, mentioning the .223 Wylde barrel change rather than a plain .223 Remington or 5.56x45 NATOchambered barrel not only allows the safe use of either cartridge, it also gives better accuracy in comparison to firing .223 in a 5.56 chamber—something I wish would have been available when I purchased my first AR years ago (a year or two before Bill Wylde released his modified chamber). Also,…

01 MultiCard Multi-tool Titanium In this day and age, who doesn’t have a multi-tool? This means you know their major drawback: They’re clunky and a pain to tote around. Well, not anymore. The MultiCard Multi-tool makes being prepared as simple as tucking away your Diner’s Club card. Tipping the scales at 1.55 ounces, credit card-sized (so you can tuck it into your wallet) and made from the wonder metal, titanium, this tool is engineered for the utmost convenience. Nevertheless, it’s no mere novelty, because it’s capable of executing more than 21 functions, including wrenching nuts, stripping wires, manipulating oxygen tanks and pulling nails.
