America’s 35 Best Hot Dogs

But there’s a big difference between not screwing something up and turning it into a paradigm-shifting, transcendental dining experience. And there are lots of hot dog stands, restaurants, and drive-ins out there that have the power to change your life. The perennial grill mate to hamburgers, the hot dog sometimes gets the short end of the stick, charring at the back of the grill while juicy burgers are snatched up as soon as they hit the right temperature. But there’s a science, if not an art form, behind constructing the perfect hot-dog-eating experience.

10 Lessons Learned from the Worst Gun I Ever Owned

The day I turned 21 was one of the most memorable days of my life.

I took a lot of pride in choosing my first handgun. I believed I’d done my research. Being new to firearms, I made a list of requirements and handed them to my husband. He came up with several guns that would meet these requirements and off we went, stumbling through a, sadly, anticlimactic purchase.

7 Ways to Foster Gratitude in Kids

Research has shown that gratitude plays a major role in an adult’s well-being and success, but there has been little corresponding research addressing its development and enhancement in children’s lives. In fact, until 2005, we know of no studies that examined gratitude and well-being in young children. Then, in 2006, psychologists Nansook Park and Christopher Peterson conducted an analysis of parents’ descriptions of their children’s strengths—and found that gratitude had the strongest relationship to life satisfaction. In more recent years, two long-term studies have shown why gratitude may be particularly beneficial to youngsters.

10 Tips For Finding Ammo

Can you imagine my excitement? I have 327 rounds of .22LR. That’s it. I just reviewed the new .22LR Walther PPK. I’m in the process of reviewing the .22LR ZIP. I have one of the most badass .22LR’s ever made on the way. And this trusted friend informs me that he is standing in front of several thousand rounds. And 550 are selling for less than $20. Get me 3,000 rounds, I texted back. Now. Get them now. Put them in the cart. I proceeded to explain why I needed them, though he knows. He writes reviews for Guns.com, too. He didn’t buy any. In fact, he was in the car, driving away, before I figured out he hadn’t bought a single round.

10 Deadliest Snipers of World War II

The highly skilled sharpshooters known as snipers (a term that originated in British India to describe hunters able to pick off the elusive “snipe” bird) became vitally important during the Second World War. Fighting on the Eastern Front, the Soviets, in particular, were expert marksmen — and noticeably dominate the following list. The Soviet Union was the only country that had expressly trained sniper units in the decade leading up to the World War Two, and their superiority (with the obvious exception of the top-ranked sniper on this list) is clearly displayed by the numbers beside the names of its marksmen. Expert sharpshooters such as Vasily Zaytsev — who reputedly killed 225 soldiers during the Battle of Stalingrad — proved beyond all doubt their immense value to their military forces during the war. In the aftermath, their importance was never to be underestimated.
