Physical Security is an Illusion

Physical Security is an Illusion

I could have (but, being the respectable citizen that I am, didn’t) passed through security checkpoints with handguns on three occasions. In all three cases, the security guards had metal detectors, both the pass-through type and hand-held wands. Also in all three cases, the guards were too busy checking purses or too lazy or incompetent […] more…
Burger Showdown: In-N-Out Burger vs. Five Guys

Burger Showdown: In-N-Out Burger vs. Five Guys

Ask someone where the best burgers in town can be found, and they might tell you the name of a good local place. That’s great, but what about when you go to the next town over? You won’t find that little burger joint. You need consistent burger quality across the map. That’s why I decided […] more…

VuurwapenBlog is now VuurwaffleBlog!

Look, I’m really tired of guns. You can tell because I haven’t written anything about guns in a while. It’s time to start writing about my true passion – food. As my friend Steve from The Firearm Blog says, I have the worst diet of anyone he knows, and he knows a lot of people. […] more…

Magpul Dynamics Courses At Sniper Country In Utah

Magpul Dynamics Courses At Sniper Country In Utah

I first met Caylen Wojcik at the 2013 Sniper Adventure Challenge, where he and his (shooting, not domestic) partner Jon Canipe displayed shooting skills far in excess of the entire field of competitors. For example, of the 26 teams in the competition, only 7 scored a rifle hit on the first shooting stage. Two teams […] more…
The BattleComp is Bad and BattleComp Enterprises Should Feel Bad

The BattleComp is Bad and BattleComp Enterprises Should Feel Bad

There are many reasons to buy a product. I use Barbasol because Dodson Dennis Nedry smuggled dinosaur embryos off Isla Nublar in a modified Barbasol can. Might I get a better shave with another product? Perhaps. But every time I pick up a can of Barbasol, I smile and think about Jurassic Park. I don’t have […] more…
The Remington R51 Is Bigger Than You Think

The Remington R51 Is Bigger Than You Think

I was excited to see the Remington R51 at SHOT, but then I saw it, and was no longer excited. Two reasons why. 1. Remington didn’t bring any to Media Day (which, considering that they’ve had them at media events before, means only one thing: that the current iteration of pistols aren’t reliable enough) 2. […] more…
AR-15 Muzzle Device Comparison

AR-15 Muzzle Device Comparison

This article combines the three previous parts (flash, sound, recoil) into one link. One of the most popular accessories for today’s AR15 owner is a muzzle device. Want less muzzle flash? There’s a device for that. Want less recoil? There’s a device for that, too. Want less muzzle flash AND less recoil? Some devices even […] more…
AR15 Muzzle Brake/Flash Hider/Compensator Comparison, Part 3

AR15 Muzzle Brake/Flash Hider/Compensator Comparison, Part 3

Late last year I published parts one and two of a muzzle device comparison; the third part was essentially complete at that time, but I decided to hold off on publishing it until I could verify some of my data. Using high speed video (courtesy of Silencerco) and multiple accelerometers, I will be able to […] more…
