    It's a question anyone who carries or uses a firearm for self defense needs to try to answer ahead of time. I have not taken a human life personally (hopefully that will never change), but I have...

    I'm six episodes into season 1 of The Expanse. I'm still not 100% sure the show is for me, but I'm warming up to it. Time will tell whether I stick with it.

    Buffalo Trace, Weller, Bulleit.

    While Jack Daniels can technically be considered a bourbon, it is not typically considered such because it lacks the complexity in flavor good bourbons have.

    At least Colt will be owned by a firearms company again.

    I hope for the following:

    1) CZ will invest in R&D for the Colt brand.
