    By now you’ve probably heard that five-time deportee Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez shot and killed 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle in the sanctuary city of San Francisco over the weekend. A crime he’s admitted to. You may be wondering where an illegal alien felon would get a firearm in one of the most assiduously anti-gun cities in one of the most ardently anti-gun states. “As latimes.com reports, “…Lopez-Sanchez said he had found the weapon wrapped in a T-shirt on the ground near a bench….” And, if true, who would be irresponsible enough to leave a…

    http://www.special-ops.org   The use of APCs on urban streets leads invariably to ‘tanks quell riot’ headlines in the media, and thus a spate of public unease. Moreover, both tracked and wheeled APCs are very expensive to maintain and not optimised for internal security (IS) operations. It was this and other reasons that persuaded the British army The post Riot control vehicles appeared first on gunsandweapons.net.

    Yesterday while working, a bunch of coworkers and I responded to a shooting that took place in an apartment complex, one that we visit on a fairly regular basis.  This was by no means the first shooting in this complex, BUT this one was definitely different. All the other shootings at this complex during recent years, at least the ones where I was present, were pretty well covered by the local media, but the media was conspicuously absent yesterday.  Could it be because the shooting was a completely justified, self-defense shooting?  Could it be because the person who got shot (the…

Truthfully, I’m having more fun interacting on Facebook, where my own page is mostly humor, cartoons, my original memes, geeky stuff, some gun stuff, photography, gamer stuff, sci-fi and horror stuff.

  • SCOTUS to Rule on Gun Possession vs Gun Ownership

    Jeff Soyer
    25 Feb 2015 | 1:48 am
    There’s an interesting article in the Wall Street Journal: The Supreme Court appeared ready Tuesday to allow a felon to sell his firearms collection, with justices across the ideological spectrum skeptical of government arguments that such transfers should be strictly limited. Several justices said the government had conflated the concepts of possession and ownership—the former prohibited by federal law, the latter untouched by it. “If I leave my car with a garage for a month, the garage has possession, but they can’t sell the car. I don’t have possession, but I can sell the…

But she expressed hope that two other provisions in a controversial gun control bill may still move forward before the end of the legislative session. “We have a very long view on this,” Braden said. “Two years ago, there wasn’t any way any gun provision would be debated. This is a long-term campaign to really change the conversation, so we can pass legislation to keep guns out of the…

In West Virginia: West Virginia would become the fifth state not to require concealed handgun permits under a legislative proposal that started moving Monday. A state Senate panel cast a unanimous voice vote to drop the need to get concealed carry permits. Only Alaska, Arizona, Vermont and Wyoming don’t have the requirement. It’s the first major pro-gun push under newly minted Republican majorities in the 60-day legislative session, which ends in mid-March. Gun-friendly Democrats likewise loosened firearms restrictions…

    4 Jul 2015 | 12:45 am
    Marco Rubio didn't hold anything back when he recently went after Donald Trump's comments:Trump’s comments are not just offensive and inaccurate, but also divisive. Our next president needs to be someone who brings Americans together – not someone who continues to divide. Our broken immigration system is something that needs to be solved, and comments like this move us further from – not closer to – a solution. We need leaders who offer serious solutions to secure our border and fix our broken immigration system. . . .Previously Rick Perry had similarly taken Trump to task (from the…

    John Lott has a new piece at Fox News on Lynne Russell and her husband defending themselves with a gun.Lynne Russell and her husband, Chuck de Caro, believe they would be dead if she hadn’t been carrying a gun. Late Wednesday night, Russell was forced at gunpoint from a motel parking lot into her room. The robber, not satisfied with merely taking her husband’s briefcase, started shooting at him. Fortunately, Russell had handed de Caro her purse, with her handgun inside it. De Caro shot the attacker, who later died at the hospital. This story made national news. ABC…

    Rev. Michael “Snuffy” Pfleger has a problem. He can’t sue gun shops anymore, because they are immune from frivolous lawsuits under PLCAA, and he can’t sue the state or federal government, because they have sovereign immunity. So what’s a radical gun hating Catholic priest to do? Well, sue the town the gun shops are in, of course, under the theory they aren’t keeping a close enough eye on what’s going on in their towns. Our opponents have done very well in the courts, largely because the legal establishment doesn’t think too much of the Second…

    Governor Hassan has vetoed the Constitutional Carry bill that was passed by the New Hampshire legislature. It’s worth nothing that Constitutional Carry in Maine is still awaiting the signature of Governor LePage, who is now saying he won’t sign it because the age is 21 rather than 18. I can’t find fault with the Governor’s reasoning, but I have to wonder if this is a game, because LePage has been saying he won’t sign anything until the legislature repeals the income tax. This being a way to live up to his promise, while appearing to be more pro-gun than thou.

They had won in district court, but the Third Circuit Court of appeals overturned that decision, arguing that the shareholders were trying to inject themselves directly into Wal-Mart’s business operations, and federal law permits the company to reject attempts to do that.

    A few weeks ago I mentioned I was working on a home brew setup to act as a fermentation chamber, and a few people asked for updates, so here’s one. Typically a fermentation chamber is done with a deep freeze or dorm refrigerator using a separate thermostat for temperature control. The gold standard for dorm fridge setups was the Sayno 4912, which sadly has been discontinued, and are now difficult to come by. I’m lucky enough to have one, but it is currently set up as a kegerator. While the 4912 will take a full 6.5 gallon carboy, and works great as a fermentation chamber, as long…

  • The Charleston Victims Weren't 'Asking for It'

    Josh Horwitz
    29 Jun 2015 | 5:57 am
    In response to sexual violence, we too often hear the hateful and self-serving phrase "they were asking for it." Now, in the wake of mass shootings, gun apologists have taken to publicly and loudly importing this shameful, victim-blaming tactic. After the gruesome massacre at Emanuel A.M.E. Church in Charleston -- where nine Americans lost their lives, including South Carolina State Senator Rev. Clementa C. Pinckney -- National Rifle Association (NRA) board member Charles Cotton declared, "[Senator Pinckney] voted against concealed carry. Eight of his church members who might be alive if he…
  • A Gun Violence Restraining Order Could Have Stopped Dallas PD Gunman

    Josh Horwitz
    18 Jun 2015 | 5:56 am
    Texas has been the scene of a tremendous amount of gun-related turmoil as of late, but Saturday's lone wolf attack on the Dallas Police Department headquarters still stands out as a particularly scary incident. As is the case with every horrific incident of gun violence in this country, we ask the same questions: Were there warning signs? How could this have been prevented? And in this case, it's hard not to ask: What might have been different if Texas had a "Gun Violence Restraining Order" (GVRO) policy in place? A GVRO enables concerned family members and/or law enforcement officers to…
  • Baltimore and Grants Pass: A Tale of Two Uprisings

    4 May 2015 | 4:01 am
    Provocateurs flocked to the scene, hoping to provoke a bloody confrontation. Armed protestors descended on the government office, claiming injustice and demanding accountability for the government's actions. Having already received innumerous death threats via telephone, government leaders elected to close the office to protect the safety of employees and visitors alike. Their ability to maintain the rule of law hung in doubt. Does this sound like a scene from the recent riots in Baltimore to you? If that's what you're thinking, you're mistaken.

  • 20 Years After OKC Bombing, NRA Has Mainstreamed McVeigh's Insurrectionist Idea in Conservative Movement

    Josh Horwitz
    23 Apr 2015 | 9:22 am
    Sunday marked the 20th anniversary of the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City by anti-government extremist Timothy McVeigh. McVeigh's act of domestic terrorism killed 168 people and injured nearly 700 others. Many of the victims were children, who were in a daycare center in the building. At the time it was the largest terrorist attack in the nation's history (since surpassed by 9/11), and it was carried out not by an Islamic fundamentalist, but by an American-born insurrectionist who believed the Second Amendment provided him with an individual right to make war…
  • Texas Open-Carry Movement Turning to Terrorism

    Josh Horwitz
    10 Feb 2015 | 5:40 am
    Merriam Webster definition of "terrorism": The use of violent acts to frighten the people in an area as a way of trying to achieve a political goal. I've been blogging here at The Huffington Post for quite some time about the threat of insurrectionism in the pro-gun movement. Typically, pro-gun activists are coy when confronted about their perverted belief that the Second Amendment provides an individual right to shoot and kill government officials in response to perceived "tyranny." But last week, a threat that is so often implicit was made perfectly explicit by a leader in Texas' open-carry…

    On July 20th, the CMP M1 Carbine Match will take place as part of the CMP Games and National Trophy Matches held annually at Camp Perry, Ohio. Designed as a lightweight (5.2-lb) combat rifle, the M1 Carbine can be surprisingly accurate (with a good barrel and proper bedding). Over 6.5 million of these compact semi-auto rifles were built, and many are still used today in CMP-sponsored target-shooting competitions. Chambered for the .30 Carbine round, the M1 Carbine shoots a 110-grain bullet at approximately 1970 fps through an 18″ barrel. The light weight and low recoil of the M1 Carbine…
  • ABM Ammo Releases .260 Rem Ammunition with Berger Hybrids

    Editor
    6 Jul 2015 | 9:26 am
    Many tactical shooters have adopted the .260 Remington as an alternative to the heavier-recoiling .308 Winchester. The .260 Rem has also performed well in the hands of long-range High Power shooters such as SSG Sherri Jo Gallagher, past National High Power Champion. The .260 Remington is basically the .308 Win necked down to .264 (6.5 mm) caliber. It can launch very high-BC 130-142 grain projectiles at impressive velocities. The ballistics of the .260 Rem allow it to shoot flatter, with less wind drift, than typical .308 Win loads. For fans of the .260 Remington, very high-quality factory…

    One of the most important aspects of choosing body armor is preparation; knowing the different varieties of body armor, and being aware of the threats they are designed to stop. In the same way that weapons are designed to use certain types of ammunition and cannot work otherwise, body armor is designed to protect against certain calibers of ammunition, and will not protect against higher levels of ammunition. Body armor is not simply a ‘one size fits all’ product, in terms of protection or fit, and it is very important to be aware of what exactly each level of body armor can protect…

    It doesn't take most people very long to realize that a magnified optic can aid in accurate shooting. Anytime we can see our target better there's a greater chance of success in the shots we take. Magnification also allows for better identification of our targets at distance. These facts became very apparent to me years ago which took me down the path of deciding what optic would be best suited for me.I initially saw the advantage of one power reddots from Aimpoint and EoTech but knowing that I'd have to add a magnifier behind the reddot was not very attractive to me.

    If you just saw the new movie Jurassic World I’m sure you’re wondering, what lever action rifle was Chris Pratt using the movie? I was wondering the same thing as soon as I saw it on screen. It’s a pretty sweet looking rifle, I’ve always had a thing for lever actions. Well apparently it’s a Marlin Model 1895SBL chambered in .45-70 Government per IMFDB. Just like with the SPAS 12 shotgun from the original Jurassic Park movie the Marlin 1895 lever action is sure to be an iconic gun from the franchise.

    PolyCase ARX ammo. You might get a hint about what exactly PolyCase Ammunition is all about from its name, specifically the “poly” part. It refers to the company’s new method of manufacturing projectiles. Not only does their technique shatter constraints of traditional manufacturing technology, it opens up entirely new possibilities. I recently toured the PolyCase Ammunition factory outside of the beautiful city of Savannah, Georgia, to see how they make bullets. To appreciate the level of innovation, it helps first to understand how traditional bullets are made. To grossly…
  • AR Operations: Direct Impingement vs. Piston Operated

    Tom McHale
    7 Jul 2015 | 6:58 am
    Imagine the bolt (below) inside of the bolt carrier (above) and you can see how the gas flow works. All AR-type rifles have plenty of gas; they just deal with it differently. Eugene Stoner had plenty of gas. So much so that he designed his AR-15 semi-automatic rifle to work entirely on gas flow. The method of operation was called direct impingement. Well, people refer to it as direct impingement, but it’s really a little bit different. We’ll get into that nitty gritty minutia in a bit. For now, just envision those nifty lug wrenches at tire stores that are powered completely by compressed…
  • Celebrate Diversity! The World of AR-platform Calibers

    29 Jun 2015 | 6:56 am
    The AR platform can be adapted to dozens of different calibers, like this Rock River Arms LAR-6.8 chambered in 6.8 Remington SPC. In these troubled times where everyone wants to stir up trouble and hate over our differences in appearance, I want it to go on record that I don’t just tolerate diversity, I embrace it. In my safe right this moment, I have AR-type rifles chambered in .223/5.56mm, 6.8 SPC, 300 Blackout, and .308 Winchester. Of course, .308 is admittedly related to the Armalite AR-10, not AR-15 family. When it comes to diversity, I put my money where my mouth is. As we speak,…

    This is….not the right way to clean your handgun. Back when I was younger and even more naïve than I am now, I owned a restaurant and attended a seminar presented by the world’s leading expert on cleaning things. He pointed out one thing that I remember to this day: bad mopping technique. What does this have to do with cleaning guns? Plenty. Bad mopping involves swirling a mop in a bucket, wiping it around the floor, then dipping it right back into the bucket. All that grime you just picked up from the floor went right back in the clean water so it can be redistributed elsewhere…

First the background in as few words as possible. Parents of an Aurora, CO theater murder victim, Sandy and Lonnie Phillips, joined with the Brady Campaign to sue several retailers who sold gear and ammunition to the murderer. The suit alleged that retailers should have vetted the buyer and discerned his evil intentions. We have a federal law called the 2005 Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act.

Many have come to enjoy the pocket friendly lines of a simple slip joint, and the thinly ground blades cut like nothing else. Some might find the absence of a lock unnerving, but in my experience most of the time a slip joint is more than enough knife for normal utility tasks. As I wandered down the slip joint rabbit hole I eventually came across the Northwoods Knives Indian River Jack. Here is a simple single blade pattern, but with an upgraded blade steel (in this case, CPM-154). No other bells or…

    An often enjoyed pastime of production knife collectors is to discuss various “Sebenza Killers” arriving on the market. The Sebenza has long been considered a gold standard in high end production cutlery, and the thought that a competitor might knock the Sebenza off it’s podium has been a topic of conversation for some time. The Bradley Alias might be the most notable knife to get bandied about as a “Sebenza Killer,” and there have been several others over the years. But 25+ years later the Sebenza is still going strong. There seems no end in sight to its reign.

Beyond that there wasn’t a whole lot to report.Benchmade’s 2015 SHOT Show releases actually looked pretty strong. The 485 Valet was one model that caught my eye. Perhaps most surprising was that the knives became available about a week after the show.

    In their continued push to pass more restrictions on American’s civil rights, a recent article on the notoriously left leaning, quite ironically named “Think Progress” (since they seem to lack both thought or progress) touted that “The Number Of People Who Use A Gun In Self-Defense Is Pretty Much Negligible.”  In fact, they felt that so strongly, that is what they titled the article.  As a conservative, and very pro-gun guy, I am used to being called callous and uncaring by the left, but the whole premise of this article screams of hypocrisy.  It appears all the more callous when…

    And Can It Be Staved Off? Preface:  Let me start by saying this, I don’t know what the heck I am talking about.  I’m not a journalist, an editor, an economist or a business major.  I’m just a dumb street cop who writes for a gun blog, and has been lucky enough to have a few pieces published in a print magazine that I have long subscribed to. However, I do have some expertise at being a consumer of gun magazines.  I have subscribed to various gun magazines for nearly 30 years.  Some subcriptions have come and gone, but a few I have maintained consistently for more…
  • Obama Takes Another Step Toward National Police Force

    Ooops, I mean he announces restrictions on scary stuff for cops. I woke up early this morning because the wife had a training class for her job, which meant I had “get the kids on the bus” duty.  I packed lunches, did all my Mr. Mom taks and plopped in my chair with my coffee to wait until it was time to leave.  I took my first sip of coffee and looked at my phone, and was greeted by the headline “Obama announces restrictions on distribution of military-style equipment to police” prominently displayed on the Fox News app on my phone.  Say what?  I started to read but it was time…

    I have been using StealthGear USA holsters for about a year and a half now, and I must say, they are still my go-to IWB holster, bar none.  I’ve written about both their Onyx IWB holster and their IWB Mag Carriers in the past, and I still use both of those products daily.  StealthGear USA makes a truly one of a kind holster, but not because of the holster shape, but rather due to the materials used.  It is those materials that set their products apart from all the rest.  The comfort level of their products is untouched by any other IWB holster I have ever used, and both the…
  • Another Self-defense Gun Use That Never Happens

    Matt
    11 Mar 2015 | 9:44 am
    Yesterday while working, a bunch of coworkers and I responded to a shooting that took place in an apartment complex, one that we visit on a fairly regular basis.  This was by no means the first shooting in this complex, BUT this one was definitely different. All the other shootings at this complex during recent years, at least the ones where I was present, were pretty well covered by the local media, but the media was conspicuously absent yesterday.  Could it be because the shooting was a completely justified, self-defense shooting?  Could it be because the person who got shot (the…

    http://www.special-ops.org   The use of APCs on urban streets leads invariably to ‘tanks quell riot’ headlines in the media, and thus a spate of public unease. Moreover, both tracked and wheeled APCs are very expensive to maintain and not optimised for internal security (IS) operations. It was this and other reasons that persuaded the British army The post Riot control vehicles appeared first on gunsandweapons.net.

    http://www.special-ops.org   During a riot, troops or police must try to keep a reasonable distance between themselves and the crowd. This prevents the security forces from being outflanked or overwhelmed, and tempers tend to remain cooler if a distance between the two sides in maintained. However, these measures are not always possible. When contact is unavoidable, The post Riot control appeared first on gunsandweapons.net.

  • Should Concealed Carriers Intervene Against Active Shooters?

    7 Jul 2015 | 10:17 am
    Should CCW Holsters Engage Active Shooters? This isn't a question you can get the answer from a second authority. Only you and you alone can make that decision. The legal consequences, the decisions, and the risk are yours and yours alone to bear the burden. That said, it's definitely good to assess the situation in the moment and decide if your involvement would be beneficial or not. Why would it not be beneficial? Well, if an active shooter is obscured from your direct line of sight, you are doing yourself no favors by engaging a target without knowing what's in front of him or behind him.

  • Bad Eyesight – Does It Mix Well With Carrying Concealed Firearms?

    Concealed carry for ccw carriers with bad eyesight There is a recent, reoccurring article published in the Des Moines Register about how Iowa has no restrictions on issuing concealed carry permits to the visually impaired. It's created a bit of a stir because many people believe that if you can't see the target, you shouldn't be shooting. And they do have a point – it fundamentally violates two of the basic safety principles that govern the safe usage of firearms. Namely: • Be able to identify what is in front and behind your target. • Do not point your weapon at anything you do not…
