A Little Bit About Me

I’m just your average Mark who likes to spend time outdoors and shoot guns for fun. You could say that I have a bit of a ‘blast’ doing it! I like to keep things simple – give me a gun, some targets, and a cold beer, and I’m a happy camper. I’ve learned quite a bit about guns over the past decade, and I’m more than happy to share my knowledge with our readers.
