  • Grey Ghost Gear range bag | Deployment ready October 18, 2017
    Grey Ghost Gear (GGG) is one part of the strategic triumvirate that also features Grey Ghost Precision (GGP) and Tactical Tailor.  While GGP deals in lead-slinging hardware and Tactical Tailor knocks out mind-boggling amounts of gear tailor-made for warfighters, GGG has a somewhat smaller scope.  To me, the result of this  focus is GGG having an even greater level of […]

  • Weird Gun Wednesday: Elgin Cutlass Pistol October 18, 2017
    Back in the early 19th century, simple, muzzle-loaded pistols were about the best you could hope for when it came to a sidearm. And that didn’t amount to much: They generally held only one round, were smoothbore (synonymous with the word ‘inaccurate’), and slow to reload. In this regard, edged-weapons such as swords or cutlasses […]

“Successful investigative journalism relies on the ability to adapt to a fast-changing media landscape. Twenty years ago the public had limited choices when it came to where they received their news. Today there are nearly unlimited sources of information to choose from.

Primary sources of information are readily available to the public yet many are content with conjecture and hearsay from political pundits and anonymous sources. We think it’s changing. The public is starting to consistently question the legacy media narrative thanks to brave independent journalists, whistleblowers, and independent publishers who have risked it all to reveal the truth. Our belief is that the truth has no bias.”
