Went to pick out my next pistol today. This is the one I was going for – a Kahr CW9. A small and potent 9mm, this one is a beauty. However, it didn’t fit me well. It’s really tough to work the slide, and the slide stop lever was not in a position where it [...]

One thing I discovered at Walsh College is that students hate economics because of neoclassical mathematical economics that treat all humans as brainless automatons. Then they are exposed to Austrian economics, and they say, “I really like [...]
