Because all I want to do is drink this Chai latte all day but I know that’s probably not the best idea.” It dawned on me that a lot of people […]

Q&A with Georgia: 10 Questions from an Intern

A few weeks ago, one of my interns said, “Hey! How about you answer our interview questions, things that people don’t ask you in interviews but things that we’re curious about.” I thought that was rather clever and so I gave them all a license to ask me anything under the sun that they wanted to know. For the next few weeks they’ll be posting their questions and my answers… […]

How to Clean a Shotgun Ejector

Did you know, that if you have a break-action shotgun, you are supposed to clean your ejector from time to time? I didn’t until recently. When on one of my Adventure Getaways in December, I discovered that during my flight to Virginia, my steel gun case had been tossed about so much that suddenly my shells weren’t ejecting from the shotgun every time I opened it. In this video, my […]
