Well, it’s been quite the weekend around the Apps household. We’ve decided that replacing my wife’s car is best done before it goes out of warranty due to clutch issues we’ve been having (It’s had the clutch replaced twice in 10,000 miles, and the latest one is only 13 days old, and it’s already far worse than the others), so we spent all day Saturday and most of Sunday car shopping for something reasonable to …

Match Report: Tarheel USPSA

The first Tarheel USPSA match took place yesterday at Woody’s Hunt and Rifle Club in New Hill, NC and I went to check it out.

You Know What I Like About This? The Fact That it’s Faded.


This sticker was stuck to the trash barrel at my gas pump in Wendell, NC last night. The fact that it’s sunfaded and starting to curl it’s edges says to me that it’s been here since the last election cycle, and the owners of the gas station haven’t bothered to pull it off. I like that.

I’m always on the lookout for cool things relating to shooting that I can DIY and save a chunk of money. Sometimes it works out, but sometimes it doesn’t really. One thing that I’ve always found troublesome was getting adequate lighting under the turret of my reloading press.
