    Former Judge Exposes the Full Details of Hillary’s Criminal Conspiracy… It’s HUGE . In the wake of the revelation that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used a private email account on a private server to conduct official government business during her tenure, she has feebly tried to explain away the allegations of unethical corruption with lame excuses and even lamer jokes. . One of the excuses offered by Clinton is that she didn’t need to use the official “@state.gov” account on the government’s servers because the “vast majority” of her emails were to and from…

    With adoption of the MG 34 machine gun the Wehrmacht had the weapon that was envisaged some 20 years before, and the MG 34 bears the distinction of being the first practical universal (or general purpose) machine gun. While the MG 34 was good and practical, it was certainly not ideal. German experts wanted their machine guns to fire faster, while being simpler and less costly. A high rate of fire was desirable both for AA applications and for surprise flanking fire against targets moving through the battlefield. As early as 1937 HWaA issued a request for the next new universal machine…

    “When one man sat down next to a second man in a St. Louis light rail car and asked him his opinion on the shooting of Michael Brown, it was not the beginning of a discussion,” cnn.com reports deploying UK-caliber understatement. “It was the start of an assault, police said. The second man, who was white, didn’t want to answer the question. Then the first man, who was black, boxed him in the face. Two more African-American men joined in the beating, according to a police report about Monday’s incident.” The video has gone viral.

    The era of the 3D printed gun is here. Cody Wilson’s Defense Distributed kicked it off by creating the world’s first 3D-printed handgun: the Liberator. “The following year, they unveiled an AR-15 receiver capable of firing hundreds of 5.56mm rounds without fail,” engadget.com reports. “This year, designers from FOSSCAD has (sic) raised the bar yet again. They’ve successfully crafted and test fired the receiver for a Colt CM109 modular battle rifle — the AR-15’s badass big brother.” Badass? I don’t think they’re using that…

We know this because TASER aggressively defends each and every TASER-related lawsuit in court. And there have been a LOT of ambulance-chasers trying to milk that particular cash cow.

Some astute observers later noticed that the actor hired to portray the clerk of the fraudulent gun store was Ned Luke, the same performer who voiced one of the lead characters in the popular and graphically violent video game, Grand Theft Auto V (GTA V). This fact was later confirmed in an article on WashingtonPost.com’s Wonkblog.

    Jeff Soyer

    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…

In the wake of the revelation that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used a private email account on a private server to conduct official government business during her tenure, she has feebly tried to explain away the allegations of unethical corruption with lame excuses and even lamer jokes. . One of the excuses offered by Clinton is that she didn’t need to use the official “@state.gov” account on the government’s servers because the “vast majority” of her emails were to and from…

    Obama Trying to STOP the US Army From Prosecuting Bergdahl . President Barack Obama has certainly staked a lot on the fate of likely deserter Bowe Bergdahl. He sacrificed the lives of several of our men in uniform in a vain attempt to rescue him, then traded five Taliban terrorists from Guantanamo Bay for his release. . Now, it appears the president is even willing to obstruct justice for Bergdahl. Recent reports indicate that senior Department of Defense officials are doing their best to poison the well for those prosecuting Bergdahl. . During the week, two DOD sources spoke to CNN to…

The operation of a pump-action shotgun is illustrated with a special cut-away version of a Winchester Model 12. The shotgun has been modified to reveal the inner workings.

    In most parts of the country it’s still too early for a prairie dog safari. Spring has barely sprung, and the critters haven’t come out to play. If you are missing the fun of a prairie dog hunt, here’s an arcade-type shooting game that lets you blast the critters to your heart’s content. Just use your mouse to move the crosshair and click to shoot. A hit on a can is worth one point, a hit on a prairie dog is worth two. Hint: Try re-centering the crosshair after each shot — that way you never have to move more than halfway across the screen when the p-dog pops up.

    ABCThree days after the deadly 2013 Boston Marathon explosions, investigators say bombing suspects Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev used a Ruger 9mm semi-automatic handgun to murder MIT police officer Sean Collier, carjack a young businessman, and hours later to fire on police in a vicious gunfight. Now with Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on trial, witnesses and court documents have shed new light on the pistol’s curious path through a criminal underground and purportedly into the hands of the brothers who were once the most wanted men in America. The gun’s serial number was “obliterated” by…

This kit was built to allow you to get back in the fight if your gun goes down. Of course there will be naysayers that say “How are you going to use this in a firefight” and of course you wouldn’t be able to. However if you were able to get cover and repair your primary firearm then why would you not? But having this kit on you would not be a bad idea given the small package it is in.

  • Is the BATF trying to ban 5.56 ammo?

    Michael
    14 Feb 2015 | 10:54 am
    The BATF has posted a document on their website that tried to justify the banning of 5.56 NATO ammunition. The TL;DR version of how they are trying to justify the ban is in the 1968 Gun Control Act, Congress decided to try to define “armor piercing” ammunition in which they only name handgun “projectiles”. However they are not trying to justify the ban on 5.56 or as they would love to call it “assault rifle ammo” because of the increase in popularity of the AR Pistol platform. If this is not a stretch to try to ban something then I do not know what is. What are…

    With an estimated 270m to 310m American civilians possessing guns (legally and otherwise), the safe use of firearms is of paramount importance. From handguns to armor-piercing rifles, a weapon in the wrong hands can prove fatal, even by accidental means – two people die each day by accidental shooting. When handling guns, whatever the circumstances, body armor should always be available. However, with so many types of guns and ammunition available today, how do you know which type of armor will keep you safe against specific weapons?

    Gun-free zones at schools, bars, sporting events, hospitals and churches would be largely obsolete if Rep. Drew Springer has his way. Springer, R-Muenster, has authored a bill — laid out Tuesday before a House committee — that he hopes eliminates most restrictions on where the state’s nearly 826,000 concealed handgun license holders can carry their weapons. He said his bill would advance the rights of “responsible, law-abiding citizens.” Even in a gun-friendly state — and Legislature — it’s unclear what kind of support there would be for such a far-reaching bill.

The measure, filed in January, would not only prohibit many state and local public buildings from barring lawful concealed carry, it would strip sovereign immunity from governmental bodies and officials who pursued such policies and allow them to be sued by gun owners for damages. It passed the Senate on March 18 by a large 26-5 margin on its third reading. “SB 273 protects citizens from improperly…

  • Shadow Ops Weaponry Out of Business

    17 Mar 2015 | 11:11 am
    A few years back a new player in the AR lower receiver market took pre-orders for AR lowers at a pretty good price, they even offered custom engraving. This was at the height of the AR15 panic buying frenzy after Sandy Hook school shooting. This new shop was Shadow Ops Weaponry, well it looks like they’ve gone under already. An email was sent out from them that you can read below. Their website is still live, but it looks like all their merchandise is up for auction over at Proxibid.com. I actually jumped on their pre-order back in 2013 but eventually cancelled it, I’m glad I did.

  • Handgun Laser Myths.. Busted!

    Tom McHale
    28 Mar 2015 | 8:37 am
    Years ago, I had a feeling that lasers were a good thing for a self or home-defense gun. I’d only used them on the range for practice, and at home dry firing, but it just seemed so sensible to me. All of the “marketing messages” sounded pretty rational.  “You can focus on the threat and still aim accurately.” “They help you aim in low light conditions, when most self-defense encounters occur.” “Lasers allow you to shoot accurately from unconventional positions.” Also See: A Handgun Laser Primer There are more marketing benefits, but you get the idea. Anyway, it all sounded…
  • Hogzilla Slayer or Home Defense Utensil? The FNX 45 Tactical

    Tom McHale
    27 Mar 2015 | 6:28 am
    The FNX 45 Tactical I can’t decide if the FNX 45 Tactical pistol is more suited for military and law enforcement door kickers, home defense or battling Hogzilla. The included carrying case is a bonafide range bag. It’s a huge 45 ACP, but I mean that more in terms of capability than size. In fact, holding it up to my Beretta 92FS, which is full-size, but certainly not physically obese, it’s about the same overall size. When I say huge, I mean that it makes those bigger caliber versus higher capacity arguments a moot point. You know what I’m talking about. 1911 Fan Club founders insist…

For the first couple episodes of the Great GunsAmerica Ammo Adventure, we looked at some interesting rifle rounds: the new Sig Sauer 300 Blackout Match Subsonic and Doubletap’s new 6.8 Remington SPC 90 grain Bonded Defense. They’re both really interesting, and if you consider the results, high-performance rifle cartridges. Now it’s time to drift into every day carry territory. For the next few episodes, we’ll take a close look at really common caliber options that make up a large proportion of concealed carry…

We know this because TASER aggressively defends each and every TASER-related lawsuit in court. And there have been a LOT of ambulance-chasers trying to milk that particular cash cow.

    2013 and 2014 marked pretty quiet years for Benchmade. Not a whole lot of interesting stuff rolled off their shelves. The Volli was my favorite and has proven itself to be an excellent knife. 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.

Acclaimed Scandinavian custom knife makers Jens Anso and Jesper Voxnaes have joined forces with Spyderco to bring us the Pingo, a completely modern slip joint folder.The idea with the Pingo was to make a folding knife that is legal to carry in Denmark, which doesn’t allow for locking folders or folders you can open with one hand.

The knife was originally designed in the 80s by Al Mar and Colonel Nick Rowe for the Army’s SERE (Survival, Evasion, Resistance, Escape) school. The fact that you can even still buy the knife is a testament to the efficacy of the design.As an enthusiast of modern folding knives, I have had my eye on the SERE 2000 for some time. It’s one of those “cornerstone” tactical knives like the Paramilitary 2 and Benchmade 710 that I feel almost obligated to try (twist my arm).So why the hell would you…

Meanwhile, there doesn’t seem to be much of interest going on in the ~$100 price point or sub $100 price points – both of which have been sweet spots for Spyderco in the past with cherished blades like the Paramilitary II, Sage, Caly 3, Dragonfly, Manix 2, and of course the Endura and Delica.So I have been forced to pick my battles a little bit.

  • Another Self-defense Gun Use That Never Happens

    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…

    To hear the Obama administration talk about the need to ban a very common ammunition in order to “save police lives”, would lead one to think that this administration actually cares about cops lives.  But, when looking at other actions regarding law enforcement by the Obama administration, this move to ban ammo to “protect law enforcement” seems very counter to their past acts. The ammo that the administration is trying to ban, M855 “green tip”, or SS109 5.56mm rifle ammo has been available to the public for a very long time.  This ammo has a mild steel tip but is in fact not…
  • Arts and Crafts Time

    I have never been a fan of arts and crafts. You know the messy glue and glitter and other sticky childhood past times? Hated it then and not much has changed. Now that I am a father I have to put aside my distaste of the glitter bomb and embrace my children’s interests. When I am not creating God knows what out of popsicle sticks I try to work on my own projects that usually involve black gun parts. This includes manufacturing my own firearms. Within the past couple of years I have taken to working on 80% AR15 and AR10 type lower receivers. I find it a quite enjoyable and rewarding past…
  • CTT Custom Holster for the VP9

    As many of you know the H&K VP9 has quickly risen to become one of my favorite pistols.  In fact it replaced my long standing G19 in the carry rotation several weeks ago.  One I determined my VP9 was to the task of being a reliable EDC (Every Day Carry) the hunt for a solid Appendix Inside the Waist Band (AIWB) holster became my top priority. Enter CTT Custom .  The folks down at Chi-Town Tactical have a custom shop that provide different services, from Duracoating to custom holsters and being a somewhat local Midwest company, especially one behind enemy lines fighting for RKBA issues…

    Over the last several years, there has been a huge surge in hatred and distrust directed at law enforcement.  That sentiment has recently culminated in protests across the country, and in recent months, a HUGE increase in unprovoked assaults on officers around the country.  One of the cries I often see repeated by those denigrating my profession is that cops protect their own, no matter what.  I can’t count how many times I have read “why don’t good cops turn in bad cops” on social media and in reader comments on “news” sites lately.  To anyone who knows better, that mantra is…

  • MG-42 and MG-3 machine gun

    guns
    28 Mar 2015 | 11:42 am
    With adoption of the MG 34 machine gun the Wehrmacht had the weapon that was envisaged some 20 years before, and the MG 34 bears the distinction of being the first practical universal (or general purpose) machine gun. While the MG 34 was good and practical, it was certainly not ideal. German experts wanted their machine guns to fire faster, while being simpler and less costly. A high rate of fire was desirable both for AA applications and for surprise flanking fire against targets moving through the battlefield. As early as 1937 HWaA issued a request for the next new universal machine…

    In the immediate aftermath of World War II the French armed forces were equipped with a variety of weapons from a remarkable miscellany of origins and sources. As far as sub-machine guns were concerned, some of these were of French design and manufacture dating from before the start of World War II in 1939., and others were American and British weapons delivered to the revised French forces from the United States and United Kingdom. While the weapons themselfs were serviceable enough, the range of ammunition calibres and types was considered too large for logistical convenience and…
  • Luger P08 Parabellum

    guns
    28 Mar 2015 | 11:17 am
    The Luger P08 Parabellum pistol was developed by Georg Luger in Germany, ca. in 1898. The Parabellum name comes from ancient Latin saying Si vis Pacem, Para bellum – if you want Peace, prepare for War. The Lugers’ design is based on earlier Hugo Borchard idea, but Luger re-designed the Borchards’ locking system into much smaller package. Most pre-WW II Parabellum’s were developed by DWM company in Germany, with some being manufactured under license in other countries. During WW II, many companies, such as Mauser werke and others, also produced Lugers. The first country to…
  • Losfeld fragmentation grenade

    guns
    25 Mar 2015 | 3:01 pm
    This hand grenade is transformable from defensive to offensive roles by simply removing the fragmentation sleeve which fits around the plastic body of the grenade. A conventional fly-off lever igniter fuze is screwed into the body, the lever being retained by a quick-release safety pin. The detonation train is positively interrupted before arming, and arming is carried out dynamically after throwing, the grenade being some 5 m from the thrower before arming takes place. Therefore, should the grenade be dropped in the act of throwing, it remains safe. The fragmentation sleeve breaks…
  • Komissiongewehr Model 1888

    25 Mar 2015 | 2:51 pm
    The Komissiongewehr Model 1888 rifle, originally known as “Gewehr modell 1888” or “Komissiongewehr” (Commission rifle), was developed by a group of officers from GewehrPrufungsKomission (GPK, or Rifle testing commission of German army), located in the city of Spandau. Development of this rifle was spurred by introduction of the French Lebel rifle and its small-bore, smokeless powder ammunition. After learning about this revolutionary innovation in small arms, GPK quickly responded by developing its own version of the small bore ammunition loaded with nitro-powder, the 7,9×57…

  • Places That Restrict Concealed Carry

    27 Mar 2015 | 8:22 am
      By James England | Contributing Editor   While each state has the ability to extend or loosen their parameters for where a person may or may not carry a concealed firearm (or what class of people are authorized to do so) – there are three major conceal carry restrictions that apply nearly unanimously across the board...
  • Concealed Carry For Senior Citizens - Obstacles and Solutions

    25 Mar 2015 | 7:56 am
      By James England | Contributing Editor   The old adage, “With age brings wisdom”, apparently has basis according to a recent study completed by the University Geriatrics Institute of Montreal in Quebec. But does this extend to senior citizens and their ability to properly handle a concealed carry firearm? While perhaps wisdom is a gift of experience, so isn't decreased mobility, diminished flexibility, and motor reflexes ...
  • Smart Gun Technology For Concealed Carry - Safe Or Born To Fail?

    23 Mar 2015 | 8:02 am
      By James England | Contributing Editor   National headlines love to cover a grisly shooting incident. It makes for big headlines and huge celebrity appeals for tougher laws regulating guns. The downside is that more and more legislators are looking to make laws governing the technology that operates firearms. Additional, unnecessary parts like an electronic firing mechanism, establishing geo-location, and even where the bullet is being fired – they all sound like good ideas if the perspective is that everyone, everywhere operated with those same constraints...

      By James England | Contributing Editor   The power of the firearm is that of life and death. That's a pretty heavy thing to consider when dealing with real life situations. However, there are some dangerous ideas that creep in. Whether it's somebody trying to rationalize his or her decision to use a handgun or ways to make it “feel better” − here's three concepts that are downright absurd and dangerous when actually considered....
  • How Often Should I Empty My CCW Magazine?

    18 Mar 2015 | 8:24 am
      By James England | Contributing Editor   This is a pretty common question for those who may leave a weapon stored with a magazine in it. While compressing a spring will inevitably degrade it given enough time – that time may be a bit longer than gets estimated. Some gun owners strongly advocate for routinely unloading a magazine and reloading it for a pistol that doesn't get fired often. It seems like it may be good practice to check a magazine's operation to ensure it is serviceable....
