    By Brandon via concealednation.org WEATHERFORD, TEXAS — Remember the new Texas legislation that allowed campus carry but still gave administrators permission to restrict lawful carry in certain areas? That law did not extend to high schools or other protected school zones. Once Weatherford, Texas high school parent must have forgot — and the clearly marked signs outside the auditorium where he went to his son’s ninth grade orientation wasn’t enough to jog his memory . . .

  • The Latest Media Matters attack: CBS Evening News Allows me To "Falsely Connect Gun Laws To Higher Murder Rates"

    John Lott's Website
    28 Aug 2015 | 10:28 pm
    Since Media Matters latest attack piece leads off with just referencing their list of all their attacks on me, let me start with this link. Lott is technically correct that the D.C. murder rate in 1976 -- the year a ban on private ownership or possession of handguns in nearly all circumstances went into effect -- was 26.8 people per 100,000 residents, and was 31.4 in 2008, the last year the ban was in place. But those two data points don't tell the whole story. For example, the murder rate in the last full year in which D.C. did not have a gun ban, 1975, was 32.8  --…

    New Jersey Second Amendment Society president Alexander P. Roubian writes [via Ammoland.com] It is not every week that you get contacted by two pastors who want a concealed carry permit to protect themselves and their church. With a rise in violence targeting churches and religious groups do you blame them? Watch our video story on Chasing News below. When I was contacted by Pastor Kevin Bernat and Pastor Jeff Kovach two weeks ago, I honestly did not know what to think. They told me about their insane experiences in dealing with the New Jersey gun laws and how local authorities would…

    “Baltimore officials are expected to authorize the expansion of the anti-violence Safe Streets program to a fifth city location — likely the Sandtown-Winchester neighborhood, the site of Freddie Gray’s arrest,” baltimoresun.com reports. “The Board of Estimates, which is controlled by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, plans to accept a $180,000 one-year grant from the Abell Foundation to employ ex-felons to stem crime in the West Baltimore neighborhood. The grant, along with federal dollars, will fund the program until June 2016, city officials said.” Not to…

    March 11, 2014: the U.S. Patent Office approves a patent for the Advanced Combat Sighting System, or ACSS. This novel reticle design combines near-instant, intuitive ranging of human targets out to 800 yards with built-in bullet drop, windage, and running target compensation markings. A full review of Primary Arms’ 1-6X ACSS is forthcoming. But, for those looking to range and engage targets a little less grave than enemy combatants, today we’re checking out a version of the ACSS reticle designed for ranging clay pigeons, cans, and bottles out to 200 yards.

    Well that was gory. Still, I don’t suppose one should be overly squeamish when fighting for your life. That’s when you should go all-in, no-holds-barred, hoping that the resulting blood spatter belongs to your opponent. To that end, most gun guys carry a knife as well as a gun. I don’t now about you, but my knife-fighting skills are just this side of non-existent. Ninja juggling one of my way cool survival knives (which I use for kitchen prep), JWT told me there are two schools of thought . . . You can stab, slice and dice your opponent’s center mass or…

    A bit back, I wrote of the Ashley Madison hack: The site boasted 40M users. Which is probably 39,999,000 men and 1,000 women. I kid. Well, turns out, I may have been right: Only 1,492 of the women in the database had ever checked their messages on the site. Thats compared with more than 20 million men. Looks like the site mostly was in the business of ripping off men.

    27 Aug 2015 | 11:15 am
    They claim it’s a business decision. You can see an interview with Wal-Mart over at The Firearm Blog. People there seem skeptical that it’s purely a business decision. I can see why people are skeptical, but I’m willing to take them at their word. First, we know that sales of ARs have been off. The Great Gun Rush is over. Second, when I’m in the market for an AR, I’m generally not thinking Wal-Mart. The type of folks who buy guns at Wal-Mart probably aren’t going to be the type to move ARs off the shelf unless there’s another panic. I don’t have…
  • Busybodies Gonna Busy: Petition to Ban Kids From Shooting Machine Guns

    Our opponents are circulating a petition to ban minors from shooting machine guns. I’m going to agree that starting the kids off on machine pistols is pretty irresponsible, as we’ve seen from at least two tragic accidents. It’s far better to start the kids off on something belt fed. It would seem they believe this puts us on a weak footing: Now, opponents of the petition will have to explain why the right of a 9-year-old to shoot an automatic weapon is so important. “My read on pro-gun activists right now is they are facing tremendous cultural pressure, and being asked…

    First it was “handgun ban,” but people rejected the idea thoroughly in very liberal Massachusetts. Then it was “handgun freeze,” but Californians overwhelmingly rejected that idea. Then it became “handgun control,” and when that got nowhere, they switched to trying to ban scary looking long guns. Then Third Way came along with “gun safety.” After that didn’t work, “gun violence prevention” became the rallying cry.

    Despite the fact that the Supreme Court ruled that the Second Amendment right was a fundamental right, there is still an open question about whether or not it’s a fundamental right of personhood, like freedom of speech, or a citizenship right that can be restricted to non-citizens, like voting. Preexisting Supreme Court precedent essentially made Second Amendment rights for permanent residents a slam dunk after Heller and McDonald, and we’ve seen the courts have been favorable to that idea. For non-resident aliens, it’s a different matter. If it’s a citizenship right,…

    In my humble, not-professional opinion, if you intentionally spend money on, or make a trade of any value for, a “ZiP Gun”, you are an idiot.  This is not to say that RandoAtReddit “deserved” what happened to him or whatever – far from it, in fact – but I think it is safe to say that the “science is settled” by his situation.  You can read about my own experiences with this “firearm” (and I am using that term very, very loosely) here and here, but these are the two takeaways you will probably most be interested in:  1.  I informed Mr. Douglas Donnelly,…

  • Game-Changer: Berger 7mm 195gr Bullet with 0.755 G1 BC

    Editor
    29 Aug 2015 | 8:50 am
    You’ve heard the rumors of a new ultra-high BC 7mm bullet from Berger. Well the rumors are true. Berger is now delivering its new 195-grain 7mm Elite Hunter Bullet, part # 28550. This bullet boasts jaw-droping 0.755 G1 and 0.387 G7 Ballistic Coefficients. Those are stunningly high numbers. Compare that to 0.674 G1 and 0.345 G7 BCs for the previous BC king amoung 7mm projectiles, Berger’s own 180 gr Match Hybrid Target. We’re certain the “orange box” 195gr Elite Hunter will soon see use by F-Open competitors. This ultra-high BC projectile could be a…

    Aaron Spuler

    Rebel Mississippi notes that once again, more guns = less crime. When the state of Minnesota passed a permit-to-carry law in 2003, gun control advocates said it would lead to increased violence and mayhem. Today, more people in Minnesota have permits than ever before – yet gun violence involving permit-holders remains virtually nonexistent. The total number of active permits in Minnesota has gone up every year since the permit law passed in 2003, growing from less than 50,000 to more than 200,000 this year, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. Since then, examples of violence…

These are seven of my favorite “lessons” from Tinseltown and the films in which they appeared. Lesson 1: Use proper technique to manage recoil Example: Men in Black (1997) Recoil always feels more substantial when firing a smaller and lighter gun.

    Where can you go to find reputable (and safe) reloading data? I think learning to reload your own ammunition is kind of like learning to play the Ukelele. If by chance you make an impetuous mid-life decision to follow in the footsteps of the great Don Ho, then you can’t just order sheet music and start. You need to find a way to learn the process of playing the Ukelele (while looking blissful and content) before sheet music will be of any value. It’s exactly the same with reloading, although I’m not sure that Hawaiians ever reloaded ammo while playing the Ukelele. To get started…

Trigger (noun) – a small projecting tongue in a firearm that, when pressed by the finger, actuates the mechanism that discharges the weapon. Pulling, or more accurately, pressing, a trigger sounds like such a simple thing, doesn’t it? Yank that thing backward and you can’t help but hit whatever you were aiming at, right? If that were true, then shooting accurately would be really, really easy, because, let’s face it, aiming is not all that hard.

    Over the last few years, pro-knife legislation in many states has contributed to a renewed interest in automatic knives. In part, these laws recognize the futility of banning automatic knives (also known as switchblades) when modern folders can be deployed just as quickly. The advent of the framelock flipper begs the question: when manual knives can be reliably deployed at the same speed, but don’t require as many moving parts, is there still a justification for automatic knives? I argue that there is, but we’ll get to that later on.Although several states have passed laws which legalize…

A slim, refined folding lockback with plain black handles, a gleaming laminated blade, and just enough hardware to hold it all together.I’m no stranger to Fallkniven’s minimalist approach. I have found it works wonderfully in the context of a fixed blade and I have enjoyed their A1 and F1 tremendously. So the time has finally come to examine this little U2, which is arguably the…

    Midtechs. If there was a single thread that bound Blade Show 2015 together for me, that thread would be midtechs. Specifically, midtechs offered directly from custom knife makers. Midtechs are nothing new, and have been in the knife enthusiast’s vernacular for several years now, although it is admittedly a fuzzy term to define. But at the 2015 show it seemed like any custom maker worth his salt had a mid tech offering of some sort, and whenever I gathered with fellow show-goers it seemed like everyone had acquired at least one midtech at the show.I don’t think this is a bad thing.

    Just a few years ago, it seemed that fans of traditional pocket knives and modern “tactical” folders didn’t intersect. Enthusiasts of modern designs (myself included) were often leery of the carbon steel, clipless carry, and two-handed opening. Before the days of Instagram, the most popular way for people to show off their everyday carry was via forum posts; and while it wasn’t uncommon to see something akin to a Case Peanut pictured alongside a Paramilitary 2, traditional knives were largely relegated to a back-up role. It didn’t help that more than a few of the companies producing…

The Italians have been doing some interesting stuff with manufacturing and innovation over the past few years, and the level of quality is often exceptionally high. However, if the end goal is selling knives in the USA, one way these companies have totally missed the mark is by failing to collaborate with high profile custom knifemakers. This is a technique that has been leveraged to great success by…

    300 Blackout is a cartridge that came on the market and found a unique home. While boutique cartridges can come and go 300 Blackout has had staying power. One of the reasons for the 300 blackouts success is it performs excellent both suppressed and supersonic. For those guys who love the black rifle but want a heavier larger bullet in the 30 caliber family, the supersonic version is a big winner. For those of us in Michigan who can take deer with a rifle, a 300BLK will meet the DNR requirements. It also has been a proven beast in the hog hunting arena, where it is being used widely.

    MOC, Kenneth Herman vs Clio Area School District By now you have likely read the good the bad and the angry about the lawsuit filed against Clio Area Schools. If you have not the short of it is that Clio schools decided to break the law and ban open carry on campuses. They were sued by MOC and a parent Kenneth Herman. Genesse Circuit Judge Archie Hayman ruled in favor of Mr Herman, gun owners and the law.   Mlive, Detroit Free Press and liberals everywhere cried for a few days and posted multiple comments about the size of gun owners penises. While the Clio schools clearly lost here, are…

    11 Aug 2015 | 5:56 am
    Metal and leather have been 2 of the most used materials in guns and holsters since their creation. It was not long ago nobody knew the word Kydex. In the last few years however Kydex has exploded and is for many the go-to choice for EDC carry. Kydex has become so popular for holsters because it is lightweight, customizable, inexpensive to work with and possible to infuse graphics on. Those same advantages in the holster market are carrying over to a new product thanks to Captac. CAPTAC is an American based manufacturer of Kydex clips for hats and MOLLE gear. These clips are used for a wide…

He stood close to her, and his eyes kept crawling over her. She hurriedly packed up her clothes and headed for the door. A young…
  • Organize Your Concealed Carry Purse in 8 Easy Steps

    19 Jul 2015 | 1:33 pm
    Sunday, July 19, 2015 Is your concealed carry purse overflowing?  Wishing you could get it organized without a lot of time and effort? The purpose of a concealed carry purse is to have easy and quick access to a firearm, should a situation arise where it’s needed.  A purse crammed with stuff is going to be hard to access, delaying or possibly preventing you from accessing your gun. A gun usually weighs a pound or more and a high quality concealed carry handbag often weighs 2-3 pounds.  That’s a lot of weight before adding anything else.  A heavy handbag can cause backaches, headaches…

    19 Jul 2015 | 12:15 pm
    Sunday, July 19, 2015 The tragic shootings at a military recruitment center in Chattanooga and a nearby Navy-Marine training center this past week are prompting calls by legislatures to strengthen or change laws regarding the carrying of arms.  Four Marines and a Navy petty officer were killed. U.S. Rep. Scott Rigell has organized a congressional effort to press the Pentagon to allow military personnel to carry concealed firearms to and from defense installations. “My gut sense is the American people want to know what we are doing to give their sons and daughters at least the highest…

  • Concealed Carry on Campus: Would You Protect Your Daughter?

    Saturday, April 18, 2015 The debate on concealed carry rights on college campuses has heated up in recent months as political leaders, civil rights activists and students clash amidst recent events.  A Rolling Stone story about a woman who was gang raped on a college campus, later recanted and found to be unverifiable, ignited the issue once again.  Victims, almost always unarmed as most college campuses mandate, find themselves at the mercy of attackers who may or may not be armed. The Leadership Institute, a non-profit political organization that provides training in campaigning and…

    29 Aug 2015 | 6:59 pm
    Since 2007, the number of concealed handgun permits has soared from 4.6 million to over 12.8 million, and murder rates have fallen from 5.6 killings per 100,000 people to just 4.2, about a 25 percent drop, according to the report from the Crime Prevention Research Center.And the number of permits issued is increasing faster every year. Over 1.7 million new permits were issued last year — a 15.4 percent increase over 2013, the largest such single-year jump ever, according to the report from the center led by President John R. Lott and research director John E. Whitley.“It puts the lie to…

    New York, N.Y. –-(Ammoland.com)- Survival is a basic instinct of every living organism. The impulse to survive is biological and absolute.And, for man, the desire to survive is also a moral imperative. A threat to one’s survival activates the “fight or flight” response. If a person cannot reasonably flee from a threat to his or her survival, that person must, and will, and ought to fight for his or her survival.Firearms’ owners do not impose their will on others. But, by the same token, those Americans who are not comfortable possessing firearms should not prevent other Americans…

    AUBURN | The only people allowed to carry weapons on Cayuga County property are law enforcement officials, but the Cayuga County Legislature’s Public Safety Committee debated Tuesday night whether that should change.The discussion was prompted by a letter sent to the Legislature in June by Cayuga County Courthouse employees. Many of them, according to the letter, work past 4 p.m., the time that the court’s security staff goes home.Without security on hand, some of the employees that have concealed carry permits would like to be able to carry their guns on them while at work,…

    11 Aug 2015 | 9:17 am
    This is a brief review of the Safariland Model 295 level-2 retention holster. I occasionally have need to open-carry on a duty belt, so I’ve been looking to upgrade my retention holster for a Glock 20 with extended barrel.  There are very few holsters that accommodate an extended barrel, especially with retention.  I was pleased to at least find a level-2 holster from Safariland, the undisputed heavyweight champion of duty equipment. Here is what the product looks like in the package. I ordered the holster on Amazon.  The product arrives in the packaging shown above, with…

    I’ve conducted a test of the BR 99 shotgun over the last several months to decide whether or not I wanted to use it for regular security work.  The original appeal of the platform was low entry-level cost and AR-style controls.  I also liked the idea of being able to switch quickly between different types of ammo, especially since it is possible to carry 5-round mags on the belt. There are plenty of good reviews of this shotgun online, so instead of an in-depth review with a lot of repetitive information, I will simply mention the issues I experienced with the platform. While the…

This ammo was ammo advertised on Cabela’s and anything with Marcus Luttrell’s name on it is going to garner attention.  I decided to start with something I’ve only fired a few times in the past, namely the frangible hollow-point ammunition. The marketing line is that this product serves a dual purpose as both training and self-defense ammunition.  I can definitely see the range benefits and have used frangible ammo in a limited context in CQB…

  • Faxon Firearms “Gunner” Barrel

    I was recently given the opportunity to try out a brand new Faxon Firearms AR barrel.  As a proud owner of one of their ARAK-21 uppers, I was anxious to take a look at one of the newest addition to their AR barrel line.  One of the reasons I like the ARAK-21 is that they were willing to design and try something all new.  Along those lines, once again they stepped out of the conformist mold and came up with a totally new AR barrel profile, which they call the “Gunner”. Stealing the description of this barrel profile straight from their product announcement email, this barrel is sort of…

    Gun Holster Clips for Concealed CarryAlien Gear Holsters offers a wide selection of different types of holster clips. The reason is simple – different applications demand different holster fastening methods. If you're an off-duty police officer or emergency worker, you may need a leather loop configuration to go over your duty belt. Or perhaps you know you'll need to adjust your gun holster before you sit in your vehicle – That's the perfect job for a C or J clip.

    Are Smaller Calibers Reliable for Defensive Shooters?For a lot of concealed carriers, there is the impression that a larger caliber bullet is more effective than a smaller one. The concept of “stopping power” has been dispelled over and over again. A .45 ACP round is no more effective than a .32 Auto if they're both placed poorly on target.There is a psychological aspect to carrying a larger caliber handgun. The impression seems to be that one is more or less capable of stopping a threat immediately. The truth is, this is far from the case.The factors to look for when selecting a smaller…

    The Above is what many TV watchers saw on WDBJ several days ago.  Shortly after the cowardly POS took off on several VA State Troopers and then he shot himself in the head.  Before he ended his pitiful life and during the above tragic event, he recorded the shooting, in first person POV (point of view).  This is incredibly narcissistic, but not something that has been done in the mainstream.
