No, it's not the kind of stuff I typically read. I don't read BJM, never read JAMA, and rarely read orthopaedic literature.

I don't get your "different specialty" comment. I recognize that you were...

Glock has been brilliant in the way they marketed to police agencies -- costs, armorer training, and parts. It's fundamentally a reliable handgun, for the most part, but its position as an LE-issue...

Stocks were up when Trump won based on his business-friendly rhetoric. Stocks went up even more based on his first couple of days which appear to back up the rhetoric. The problem is that none of...

Equities are based on consumer confidence, not on real value. P/E ratios just don't support a DJI of 20,000. Dangerous house of cards right now. If Trump can pull off something of substantive...

I have a German P229 that I've owned since 1996. What a fantastic gun it was, but that was a different lifetime. I moved away from all-steel hammer-fired double action pistols in .40 cal long ago.

There really aren't any American gun manufacturers that can compete at that level. The finalists were Sig, Glock, FN, and Beretta. I don't know what Trump thinks of that. He carries a Glock.

I'm not sure why, but the only two MasterCraft dealers in Minnesota, Midwest and C&C (which is local to me) certainly seem to be suffering from a lack of enthusiasm. I don't know if it's because...
