The Finicky Spring Affair

Having an aesthetically correct U.N.C.L.E. Special is one thing, if it is incapable of reliably sending rounds downrange each time the trigger is pulled—well, then you're left a cool-looking paperweight.

The Metamorphose Affair

Completing of the pistol portion of my U.N.C.L.E. Special brought with it a sense of having reached the half-way point of a long journey—a year-long one—but then again time does fly when you're having fun, especially when both the research and results are so rewarding. But, celebration was premature since there was more work to be done.

Byproduct of a Bad-Ass, Pistol-Packing Irishman

To help pass the time until my U.N.C.L.E. carbine returns, I thought I'd treat you all to a sneak peak of a feature I'm been working on for Shooting Illustrated involving another pistol near and dear to me—the Colt Fitz Special.

The Reprise Affair

At long last, my package arrived last week containing my carbine barrel with its newly affixed handguard and removable dummy suppressor. The components are superb aluminum duplicates of Brad's parts.

Discoveries in relation to "The Modicum of Movement Affair" and my job work-load have created a lull in the creation of my "Man From U.N.C.L.E." carbine.

Paging Dr. Fronkensteen. Call Your Dungeon.

Recently I was reminded of how the early bird gets the worm when fellow gun scribe Michael O. Humphries beat me to the punch with his evaluation of SIG Sauer's new 556 Classic Rifle for the August 2009 edition of Shooting Illustrated, The Definitive Source for the Modern Shooter.

The Persnickety Pistol Affair

While it's somewhat common for semi-automatics to behave finicky when hollow points are involved; in my nearly 40 years of shooting, I've never experienced such behavior with full-metal-jacket ammunition—that is until the other day.

The Next to the Last Stop Affair

Apologies once again for the lack of timely blog updates pertaining to my U.N.C.L.E. Carbine Project.

Hobby Gunsmith" Hell

Some call it boredom—some call it withdrawal, but to me it's like "hobby gunsmith" Hell.

New Agent, Not So New Doctrine

Col. Rex Applegate may no longer be with us. However, Colt's New Agent proves Applegate's doctrine regarding Instinctive Shooting is still very much alive and well.
