I’m Michael Tinker Pearce. I’m a sword and knife-maker by trade, and an author. I’ve been involved with guns most of my life. This blog is simply a place to record and discuss my thoughts and experience.  In my time I’ve been a couple different sorts of competition shooter and worked in law enforcement and private security.

    My name is João Paulo Buechem, I’m a police officer from Brazil, and a Big fan of your work. I wonder if it would be possible to convert an S&W lemon squezzer to fire .32 acp ammunition?

      Hello! Yes, it would be possible, but the gun is not strong enough for those loads and would quickly shoot loose at the very least. I don’t think this would be a safe conversion. Sorry!

    Mr. Pierce, I appreciate your common sense approach to firearms and personal protection. Also, your experiments remind me of a time when gun magazines contained similar articles. Those were enjoyable times. Stay safe, stay healthy, and keep up the good work!
