    FAIRFIELD -- Those who have dealt with Joseph C. Callahan describe him as "a nice guy," "a community leader" and "someone always willing to help with business ideas or plans." They say he's a chemist, a sportsman and a pilot. And they say he isn't "a disgruntled employee," "a terrorist" or "anybody to worry about." But on Wednesday, hundreds of guns, thousands of rounds of ammunition and dozens of barrels of explosive chemicals were taken from Callahan's million-dollar home at 1625 Bronson Road in Fairfield's exclusive Greenfield Hill neighborhood. In an instant, Callahan changed from a respected 69-year-old businessman who...

    6/10/13 Cache contents? Well, seems like more than a couple of you have intentionally cached some survival type supplies in case of emergency--some buried in the ground, more stashed at the home of a family member or friend. I received a few questions about what exactly to put in a cache, so I wanted to cover off on a few basic strategies as I see 'em. Here, we're not going to delve into the dedicated weapon's cache, where weapons are stored and concealed for use at a future date. That one explains itself. So, onto the other kinds of...

    My friend Jack pulled the car into a grassy clearing. We donned rubber boots, fetched a metal detector and digging tools from the trunk, and headed off along a game trail. Our mission: To dig up and test fire a pistol Jack had buried years ago. The trail disappeared into a wetland, which Jack crossed with confidence. The muddy water was only about six inches deep where he walked, but I couldn't see the bottom so I waded gingerly after him. It was at this point I discovered that my borrowed waterproof boots — weren't. I squished along after Jack....
