Gun Cleaning Supplies for the New Gun Owner

Gun Cleaning Supplies for the New Gun Owner

I think there was a time when the majority of first-time gun purchases were made by folks, unlike me, who grew up around firearms. Grandpa taught you how to shoot, Dad and Uncle Buck took you hunting, that kind of thing. So, when you whipped out the stack of crisp twenty-dollar bills that you’d been saving up all summer to buy your very own bird gun, the clerk probably made a lot of assumptions. Assumptions like… even if this is your first gun, surely, you’re intimately familiar with firearm ownership....

Road Tripping for Quail in New Mexico with the Family

Road Tripping for Quail in New Mexico with the Family

I’m a glutton for punishment, especially when it comes to hunting. Give me a soft patch of dirt, a jacket for a pillow and if the game is abundant, you won’t hear a complaint out of me. Leave luxury to those that can appreciate it, for me, roughing it has always been a part of the equation.   Little did I realize that these are decisions exclusive to a bachelor.   A few more revolutions around the sun, and the freedom of the irresponsibility of youth fades away. Enter a wife...

Papaw’s Gun: The Real McCoy

Halfway through a box of lavish bismuth shot, watching yet another rooster soar (unscathed) into the sunrise, I began to question my devotion to the idea. The echoes from the peanut gallery didn’t help my confidence in the matter. Are you sure you don’t want to go back to the truck and swap out guns? I worked the bolt and dismissed the notion of swapping guns. To do that would be to quit, and that wasn’t going to happen. It was the second day of our hunt, somewhere in that...

The Sage & Braker Gun Cleaning Mat: Crafting A Modern Heirloom

I think there’s something to be said in using an old worn out stained towel with heavy remnants of gun solvent, with a hint of gunpowder smell imbedded in its fibers, when cleaning our firearms. We’ve all done it or still use a “towel-like” rag to lay our guns upon. Historically when firearms were invented, I bet you an old garment or piece of cloth was used as a makeshift gun cleaning mat. Heck, maybe even an animal pelt! Hundreds of years later, the gun cleaning mat really hasn’t evolved....

I Blame It On the Dog

My wirehair Flick is just three years old, so I’m trying to cut him some slack, but truth be told, he is the cause of all my misses. If it weren’t for his distracting me on our hunts together, I’d shoot a much greater percentage of the birds I’m told by so-called “experts” are out there.       It starts with his looks. Wirehairs are among the continental dog breeds affectionately called “ugly dogs,” for their bushy beards, eyebrows, and generally frazzled appearance. Usually, by “ugly” we mean “cute,” which is...
