Have you ever played dog? As a young boy I was often the dog for my older brothers. They would take me hunting just so I could go into the brush piles and jump around hoping to flush out a rabbit.

New Products for 2014 & 2015

Random Thoughts

One thing that I enjoy most about what I do is the opportunity to see new products and to have the opportunity to try them, many times before they are introduced.

That's what I've been doing for the past 2 days. I was privileged  to spend some time with some folks who are true innovators in the shooting, hunting, home defense and personal protection field.

I'd have to say that it was a real...
