It Was 1926

It Was 1926

by Mike Lyons

It was 1926.
Aviation pioneer, Charles Lindbergh, was still a year away from his historic trans-Atlantic flight in a Ryan Monoplane dubbed the "Spirit of St. 

Louis", and the disastrous financial crash of 1929 stealthily approached a heedless population of a world "at Play”.

A Little Boy Captures My Heart, Then Breaks It

Wed, 29 Oct 2014 20:01:24 +0000

WEST JORDAN, UT — This article has nothing to do with guns, the Second Amendment or politics. It has nothing to do with criminals, conservatives or liberals. This article has to do with something that we do not see very often anymore—kindness. My job requires me to read a lot, and much of what I read is of a negative or violent nature. Much of what I write tends to polarize people, but today, I write about a community coming together to help a little boy say goodbye to his parents and his earthly existence. Ethan Van Leuven was born...

SilencerCo’s Newest Products

Wed, 29 Oct 2014 18:58:12 +0000

There are many up-and-coming companies out there currently making silencers and silencer-related products (mounts, muzzle breaks, flash hiders, pistons, etc.).  SilencerCo is one of the leaders of the pack and has had an outstanding reputation for making quality products since 2008.  They just recently announced the newest editions to their upcoming lineup of silencer products.  They will be adding threaded barrels for Glock models 17, 17L, 34, 19 and 21 as well as barrels for the Sig P226. The barrels will be machined in their Utah facility and will be made to the highest quality specifications possible.  Many of you...

A Response to Joseph Rogan’s Gun Control Editorial

Tue, 28 Oct 2014 18:40:05 +0000

Another liberal has figured out how to use a computer and the Internet and has now written an editorial for thetimes-tribune.com. Joseph Rogan’s arguments are laughably uneducated and false, so the time has come to call him out and point out how his article is rife with lies, falsehoods and flat out bogus information. Like most liberals, he is for “sane measures to improve gun safety, such as universal background checks, which are supported by 90 percent of all Americans.” Apparently, Rogan was absent the year they taught the Bill of Rights in school. Opinion does not matter when it...

Stainless Steel Brass Tumbling Using Stainless Tumbling Media

Tue, 28 Oct 2014 18:24:54 +0000

I am always on the lookout for what I see as cool products that can make my life easier and my hobby of reloading more enjoyable. I have recently found such a product. Stainless Tumbling Media in Orem, Utah makes a tumbling kit that will clean your brass like nothing you have ever seen. If you are currently using a dry tumbler, like I have been, you know that it works well, but that it also leaves something to be desired in the area of cleaning those primer pockets as well as the inside of the casing. It is also...

An Interview with a Young Marine: Issues of Today

Tue, 28 Oct 2014 16:32:16 +0000

It’s 2014. ISIS, or ISIL. Ebola. FEAR. Gun Control. Corruption. (Another election approaches.) Democrats — the word that scares people these days. That – and Republicans! That’s a summary of the news headlines going into this interview. I had the opportunity to spend part of a day in October 2014 with a 23 year-old Marine Sergeant, honorably discharged in 2013, after four years of service that included three combat deployments to Afghanistan. The Marine is now in his second year of college, majoring in Public Safety, with career aspirations with the U.S. Marshalls, DEA, or FEMA. I have a strong...
