Music and the Soul

Music and the Soul

I’ve always been fascinated by music and musicians. Music because of its ability to influence one’s mood. Musicians because I have no musical aptitude whatsoever, and so I’ve always appreciated and been mystified by those who do. When I have some downtime I enjoy...

22 Long Rifle Nostalgia

22 Long Rifle Nostalgia

Any shooter who purchases his or her own ammunition can tell you that prices and availability have been problematic for the past few years. For example, one of my preferred rounds in .223 is Speer’s Gold Dot 75 grain Soft Point (24475). Back in May 2019 I purchased...
