The Gradual Return of Ammunition

With stores being devoid of most ammunition for nearly an entire year now, many people are wondering when, if ever, we would see the shelves stocked again. While still very difficult to find, there is a slow trickle starting to make its way to some retailers. Nearly always accompanied by strict limits on the amount purchased and often behind the counter, the fact that there is any at all is promising. Perhaps there is a light at the ‘end of the barrel’…

Stocks vs Precious Metals

The stock market – it makes people millionaires or homeless and everything in between. We’ve all heard the “high risk, high reward” phrase. Conversely, there is also the “low risk, low reward” school of thought. Some people know how to play the investment game very well, while others just spin the wheel and hope for the best.

The Iconic M1911

The M1911 pistol origins go back to the late 1890s, resulting from the need to replace a variety of revolvers in service at the time with a reliable self-loading pistol. This single-action, semi-automatic, magazine-fed, recoil-operated pistol chambered in .45 ACP was subsequently designed by John Browning. It went on to serve as the standard-issue sidearm for the United States Armed Forces from 1911 to 1985 with over 2.7 million built. Widely copied by nearly every firearms manufacturer in the world, this style and operating system became the preeminent handgun type of the 20th century and of nearly all modern centerfire pistols. Used by 28 countries and in every war since World War I, there are now millions more in use by civilians, with many variants, calibers, and modifications in circulation. The M1911 has truly become the defining handgun of the modern age, and has nothing short of a cult following among enthusiasts world-wide.

With as many different options as are available in OEM equipment these days, there is an even greater variety of aftermarket products designed to enhance, upgrade or replace stock car audio gear.

Garage Sale vs. Pawn Shop

With the coming of spring, many people often go through their household inventory, clean and reorganize. Nicer weather is not only a fresh start in terms of seasons, but an opportunity to clean house and streamline life in general. This is why garage sales are so popular at this time. It’s a great way to get rid of some clutter and hopefully make a few dollars in the process. But are some of the things people sell really not worth more than twenty-five cents? Anyone who has ever gone to a garage sale probably has a story of that one ‘great find’ they never expected to see going for a few cents or a few dollars. As they say, one person’s trash is another person’s treasure. What is the true opportunity cost of just letting things go to be rid of them?
