    Falcon vs. Viking vs. Kirsten vs. Weibe Metal Pipes

    I smoked one of my vintage Falcons for the first time today, this one had a vintage bowl. Smoked Revelation Match, most enjoyable.

    C&D Epiphany vs. Sutliff Revelation Match

    I had my first bowl of Sutliff Revelation Match this AM. Very mild and enjoyable, sweet Virginia up front, somewhat fruity, woodsy. Latakia and Perique not very prominent.

    So What Do You Use as a Home Defense Weapon?

Mossberg 590 with 00 buck and slugs in a side saddle resides in the BR closet. A .300 BO with Surefire light is close by...

    A primary difference between the LaRue and the ADM, the LaRue (SPR-E) will allow the Shepherd to be placed forward enough on the receiver to just barely allow the use of my Troy rear BUIS, where as the ADM will not. But with my intended usage, it is not a problem.

    The Puzzling & Curious World of 1911

    A 9mm/.38 Super/ 9x23 combo is very enticing. On the outer edge of my short list!

    I mounted both of my Shepherd LPVOs in QD mounts, one a LaRue and the other an ADM, both have been very solid and satisfactory.

    “Go ahead, make my day.”

    I've always wanted a S&W M 25 in blue steel. I do have a 625 Mountain Gun though. I have a M 29 with a 6 in barrel.
