Blog Gone Wild – Empty Cases Reloaded

H-72s

A Hillbilly with a Blog

About six years ago I started a blog because in today’s world if you are not on-line you are not real. It turned into a great way to reach new readers and stay in contact with the few I have. (I bet most folks did not know the Internet existed in West Virginia.) Admittedly, it’s been fun and I’ve learned a lot through the interaction. But, I don’t get paid to blog and a gun / outdoor writer with a wife and three kids has to eat.

Malfunction / Stoppage / Jam

Fortunately a dozen or so great companies in the gun / outdoor industry saw some value in what I was doing and became Empty Cases sponsors. Even though I avoided the temptation to drive traffic in the usual blog manner, by being negative, talking bad about other folks or continually showing photos of scantily clad women shooting guns, the number of daily visitors increased to levels I never expected and my hillbilly engineered blog could not handle the swarm. It never really crashed, it just developed a few loose wires. A malfunction of sorts.

Reloaded

With the help of Wild Country Studios It has been repaired; I guess you could say that the Empty Cases have been reloaded. It now has a new look and the clicks are as smooth as those you hear when you cock a Colt’s single action. With this new look comes a new approach to blogging. Based on reader feedback, POSTS will be more in-depth, supported by more VIDEO content and less frequent. However, with the addition of an enhanced FACEBOOK, TWITTER and Instagram (emptycasesrm) interface, there will actually be more to see. You might say I’ll be shooting off a lot more and making more Empty Cases than ever.

Interact and WIN

Look around the new Empty Cases, LIKE the new Empty Cases Facebook page (contests and gie-a-ways to come) and follow us on Twitter and Instagram. And, never be afraid to give feedback of the positive or negative kind. After all, Empty Cases is the on-line portal for the real, gun using, outdoor kind of guy. Without readers like you and a dozen fine companies that want to keep you entertained, Empty Cases would be pretty damn empty!

Our second contest starts today. Help the Empty Cases Facebook page get to 1000 likes and one reader will be chosen to win a leather gunboat from Empty Cases sponsor GALCO Gunleather.

It appears as we enter the third decade of this century we are seeing the return of the most prolific fighting pistol of all time. Last year Springfield Armory introduced the SA-35, which was a slightly enhanced version of the classic Browning HiPower. Just prior to that EAA introduced their own HiPower (MC P35), which was a very close copy of the lastest HiPower offered by Browning. Now we have FN America with a somewhat radically redesigned pistol they are calling the High Power. I've spent a good bit of time with many original HiPower pistols and have quite a few rounds through the SA-35 and the MC P35. I have yet to lay a hand on the FN. However, it looks as though FN is the only company to attempt to reimagine the pistol, and based on the information I have, it looks like they have done a good job. However, at 40 ounces, this is a heavy pistol.The greatest HiPower ever made was the 23-ounce alloy-framed lightweight version, which is a pistol that is with me at all times, every day. I'm a bit shocked that with the ever increasing interest in concealed carry, one of these companies did not go that route. A lightweight, reliable, full-size, 16-round pistol, with a grip as comfortable as your mother's hand, is indeed a thing of beauty.Maybe that is something we will see down the road from Springfield-Armory, EAA, or FN in the future. We can only hope. ... See MoreSee Less

For those who have been worrying about the future of Marlin, the future looks good. The first new rifle from Marlin Firearms is the 1895 SBL. I've had one for a bit more than a month and hunted with it during deer season. A feature article is coming, but for now I can tell you that I am impressed with what I've seen. Save your Christmas cash! ... See MoreSee Less
