Professor Paul had the opportunity to spend some quality time with the folks from Sierra Bullets last week. We have an interview with Duane, the senior Ballistic Technician for Sierra and we’ll learn what is going on with that company.

We have some culture for you. The Professor will read poetry and discuss his road back as he marks an important anniversary. 

Also, we have a Warrior of the Week question. Are there aftermarket pistol magazines upon which you can depend? Paul and Jarrad share their experiences both with high quality and el cheapo magazines.


  • Warrior of the Week
    • Go to and use Promo Code “SOTG”
    • TOPIC: Using Aftermarket magazine in handguns? -Inspired by Andrew Koetz’s question
    • With a semi-auto pistol (I have a Canik TP9SFX); would it be more beneficial to carry the 20 round mags, or a 20 with a 32 round mag for spares? I have not yet tested the 32 round mags consistently enough to trust them yet; they are from another manufacturer and not Canik.

Do not go gentle into that good night
Dylan Thomas – 1914-1953

Do not go gentle into that good night,
old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
