Review: Laserlyte Trigger Tyme pistol and Laser Trainer

Review: Laserlyte Trigger Tyme pistol and Laser Trainer

If you are like a lot of suburban or urban gun-owners, you know that getting to the range for practice can be a chore.  Your busy life sometimes makes it difficult. And until recently, ammunition prices have discouraged you even further.  But you know you need to practice basic firearm fundamentals like muzzle discipline, grip, presentation, sight-alignment, trigger-squeeze, and training your dominant eye. Fortunately, you can do that in the comfort of your own home without frightening your neighbors with the sounds of gunfire and the sight of muzzle flashes. Enter the LaserLyte Trigger Tyme Training Pistol (TTTP). LaserLyte makes a full line of training aids for many different firearms.  But let’s start with something really basic.  The TTTP costs a measly $40. It’s about the size of a Glock 19 or similar striker-fired pistol.  If you have smaller hands or prefer training with a compact pistol, LaserLyte makes a compact model as well. The beauty of this training pistol is that, unlike other “blue gun” training aids, this...

CLA Radio 08/22/14: No Depression (Repeat)

CLA Radio 08/22/14: No Depression (Repeat)

The upcoming ConservativeLA Radio show (on Duane FM in the Hughniverse, Friday, 8/22/14, 7:00 Pacific/10:00 Eastern) will be a No Depression theme. (This program was originally aired on 9/28/12.) No Depression was a fine music magazine, now defunct, that focused on (per the magazine’s motto) “Alt-country, whatever that is.” No Depression is also a genre designation more or less consistent with the aforementioned motto. The term No Depression harkens back to an old Carter Family song. Artists featured on Friday’s show have graced the cover of No Depression over time, primarily during the first half of the magazine’s run. Hope you can join us for the show, as well as in the Ustream chat room! Spoiler set list: Son Volt: Loose String Steve Earle: Ft. Worth Blues Hank Williams: A Mansion On The Hill Wilco: I’m The Man Who Loves You Jason & the Scorchers: Absolutely Sweet Marie Bad Livers: I’m Using My Bible For A Roadmap Bottle Rockets: Indianapolis Whiskeytown: Lo-Fi Tennessee Mountain Angel Robbie Fulks: The Buck...

CLA Radio 08/15/14: Cuban

CLA Radio 08/15/14: Cuban

The next ConservativeLA Radio show (on Duane FM in the Hughniverse, Friday night, 08/15/14, 7:00 Pacific/10:00 Eastern) will concern itself with Cuban music–specifically (and exclusively), the soundtrack from The Lost City. JazzTimes.com provides a good overview: It is clear from the opening scene in Andy García’s film The Lost City that Cuban music is the protagonist. García’s passion for Cuban music and his devotion as a producer and advocate are also clear. The Cuban-born actor-director began as a collector of classic recordings, then worked as an apprentice musician and producer for one of Cuba’s living legends, Israel “Cachao” López. The bassist-composer was the subject of García’s 1993 documentary film Cachao: Como Su Ritmo No Hay Dos. The film score for City draws on Cuba’s most extraordinary musical treasures. In addition to the material listed below, a ‘couple-few sound clips pertaining to the film will be included in the show. Hope you can stop by, listen to the show, and join us in chat! Spoiler set list: Chocolate Armenteros: Beautiful Cuba (Instrumental Version) Cachao: Mambo The...

CLA Radio 08/08/14: West Coast 40s and 50s Blues and R&B

CLA Radio 08/08/14: West Coast 40s and 50s Blues and R&B

The next ConservativeLA Radio show (on Duane FM in the Hughniverse, Friday night, 08/08/14, 7:00 Pacific/10:00 Eastern) will be the best edition of the show yet, guaranteed. Guest programmer Matthew Berg, AKA @wnyconservative, has gifted us all with a wonderful overview of West Coast Blues, to invoke a short-form description of the genre–and one that doesn’t really do it justice. As Matthew put it: I think the over-arching theme is of Los Angeles as a key epicenter of urban blues, and of the development of R&B and rock. There are a number of clear influences in the music–the adaption of swing to smaller, tighter arrangements; the incorporation of jazz influence (especially w/the bass lines and afro-cuban strains); and the heavy Texas influence, including both boogie woogie piano and the heavier guitar-driven blues. Very well said. Perhaps the most amazing part of the West Coast Sound – aside from the glorious music, of course – is that it was overwhelmingly driven by musicians who were born elsewhere, as is amply demonstrated by the song selections. A...
