Is Colt back in the game?

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 29th December 2008

Is Colt back in the commercial market – selling to folks like us, instead of focusing on the military?

A recent article, “The Curious Case of Colt,” in the new NRA American Rifleman online newsletter, reminds us that Colt is considered by many to be the first name in American firearms. Where’d they go? How did they allow Kimber and Springfield and others to take over most of the 1911 market?

For the last 15 years Colt has been focused on production of the M4 and M4A1 Carbine for the U.S. Army. Now that contract is coming to an end, and Colt is back looking at the Consumer market. Want to see them back?

A recent offering is the Colt Combat Elite, a nice looking pistol, but does it match up with offerings from other makers who’ve stepped into the handgun market with lots of features for the price?

Read more about it in the American Rifleman Newsletter, a welcome new online publication from the NRA.

Whatever 1911 you have, you’ll want to consider a high-value Tucker Gunleather holster for it. Even though Tucker’s HF1 belt holster, known for jaw-dropping good looks, has a 7-8 month wait, we get new orders for them every day.  Click picture below to enlarge.


In a hurry? The Tucker Gunleather Silent Thunder leather-lined kydex holsters ship in 2-3 weeks. We will be enlarging our production facility for Silent Thunder in the near future to keep the turnaround tight despite the growth in orders.  Here’s a review that sends many customers our way.

Positive Questions Make a Difference.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 18th December 2008

With all that is happening in the world economy and domestic politics, take a moment to keep your mind right every day. No more Mr./Ms. Grumpy.

Not affirmations – afformations. These will make a difference in your outlook.

In a recent workshop we discussed people’s frustration with using affirmations to cause change or improvement in their lives. In most people’s experience the positive impact of affirmations was pretty weak and inconsistent.

Affirmations such as, “It’s always easy for me to get what I want” sometimes result in the little voice in the back of your head saying, “Yeah, right?”

Ask yourself positive questions instead. This works and have made it part of my daily routine.

Ask yourself, “Why is it so easy for me to get what I want?” You may not hear an answer but your subconscious will look within for the answer, and you’ll end up re-wiring your brain.

“Why do I love my life?”

“Why do I take such good care of my health?”

“Why do I so enjoy what I do for a living?”

“Why do I always handle my circumstances with power and grace?”

My experience with postive questions has been very good. 

Sure beats the heck out of, “Why am I so screwed up?”

Ask that question and your subconscious will answer that one, too.

No two alike

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 15th December 2008

One of Tucker’s most popular holster decorations is called Crosscut stamping which is done freehand with a swivel knife. Here’s an example of it on Tucker’s HF1 belt holster.

It’s a real work of art and no two holsters are exactly the same – like snowflakes.

Appropriate to the Christmas season and thoughts of a white christmas, I invite you to visit www.snowcrystals.com for an extraordinary experience.

Strategy of Manufactured Crisis

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 13th December 2008

This article is not for everyone. If you’re an Obama supporter, it will just piss you off. If you are tired of politics and don’t want to get upset again, just ignore this post. If you like short, brief little nuggets of information, this ain’t one of those. This is the whole enchilada, not a few tasty morsels.

I’m watching the direction this country is headed right now and wondering how people actually ignored the facts about the O-man and allowed this to happen. It’s not just him, it’s the whole bunch of leftimaniacs that want to tear down the best parts of this country so they will have more control of our lives. They want to take what’s yours, grab what’s theirs and smash what’s been ours up until now.

If you’ve got the stomach for it, here’s the link.  (Better have a bottle of Pepto handy.)

New Rule Lifts Ban on Firearms in National Parks

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 8th December 2008

WASHINGTON (AP) – People will soon be able to carry concealed, loaded guns in most national parks and wildlife refuges.The Bush administration said Friday it is overturning a 25-year-old federal rule that severely restricts loaded guns in national parks.

Way to go President Bush!

The park rule will be published in the Federal Register early next week and take effect 30 days later, well before Obama takes office Jan. 20. Overturning the rule could take months or even years, since it would require the new administration to restart the lengthy rule-making process.

Here’s the rest of the story.

Catch Santa in your living room

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 7th December 2008

What a clever idea! Here’s a website that allows you to upload a picture of your living room, decorated for Christmas, and include a Santa of your choice in the picture to show your kids or grandkids that Santa REALLY WAS IN YOUR LIVING ROOM!  Have Fun!

(It’s inexpensive and I have no monetary interest in this Santa website).

A Truly Great Ford Commercial

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 2nd December 2008

I think you’ll find this video worth the 4 minutes it takes to watch. I don’t want to spoil it by telling you why you should watch it, except to say it’s a great short story of a returning Iraq vet, told in just a few minutes.

It has a very nice ending, indeed. Click here.

A fresh view of Rush Limbaugh

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 1st December 2008

I’ve been listening to Rush Limbaugh for many years and sometimes I yell at the guy for what he says, but most of the time I find that he’s right on the mark. He doesn’t just pontificate without evidence. He’s always well-informed and backs up what he says. He pokes fun at “pointy-headed intellectuals” but may, in fact, be an intellectual himself.

Check out this article from American Thinker.
