    Here’s some unfortunate news from the 2015 SHOT Show, apparently a one off titanium AR15 bolt carrier group was stolen from the LanTac booth. It was the only one in existence. I’m surprised this doesn’t occur more often at the SHOT Show with the vast number of people who attend the show. If you know where the carrier is please do the right thing and return it.

    Slide action guns (“pump guns” or “trombone guns”) are usually associated, at least in Europe, with low powered .22 Rimfire rifles or with shotguns, but providing the design is properly done there is no reason why the system should not be used with high powered rifles. Remington, though, seem to be the only people to have made a success of it, and they have featured a center-fire slide action rifle in their catalogs for several years. The Model Six is the latest version, introduced in 1981 and replacing the earlier Model 760. One advantage of the slide action, if only…

As the headline in the Wall Street Journal stated: “Mass Shootings on the Rise, FBI says.” But the FBI made a number of subtle and misleading decisions as well as outright errors. Once these biases and mistakes are fixed, the annual growth rate in homicides is cut in half. When a longer period of time is examined (1977 through the first…

  • ATF Approval times reduced to less than 6 months

    David M. Goldman
    20 Jan 2015 | 9:45 am
    Today, the ATF stated that the time to process paper Form 1 and Form 4s - 6 months. Our feeling is that the backlog for paper forms is closer to 4 months when you consider that the eForms are only taking around 30 days and make up a substantial portion of the filings. The ATF is continuing to hire more help, cross train more staff, and process more forms than they receive. In the last 11 months the ATF has reduced the backlog from 81,000 in Feb 2014 to 38,000 as of Jan 15, 2015. There is still no update on eFiling of ATF Form 4, but hope to have it addressed by late 2015. For those with Gun…

    In Florida, it is illegal for an individual to be on probation to own, possess, or use a firearm without permission of a Judge and his or her probation officer. While initially, this may sound reasonable because in our minds we tend to associate probation with criminals and felons, many of us do not realize that this also applies to those on probation for misdemeanor and driving offenses.

    We are all familiar with the inconsistency of the ATF. The ATF has changed their position on the Sib Brace (SB-15) with a pistol. While the ATF, still states that it is legal to use the SB-15 as intended (strapped to your wrist), they have reversed their position on using the SB-15 when shouldered. You may remember that earlier this year, ATF stated that since the SB-15 is not intended to be fired from the shoulder, the misuse of an individual would not change the classification of the firearm. See the March ATF SB-15 letter We believe that this is the correct decision and interpretation. The…
  • Ohio Legalizes Hunting with Suppressors

    David M. Goldman
    23 Dec 2014 | 6:09 pm
    In 90 days, it will be legal to hunt with Suppressors in Ohio. On Friday, December 19th Gov. John Kasich signed a massive overhaul of Ohio's Gun Law including removing the restriction for hunting with a suppressor (sometimes called a silencer). This follows the recent legalization of hunting with Suppressors in Florida. A vast majority of states now permits hunting with suppressors. Also signed was legislation to require CLEOs to sign Form 4s and Form 1s. The "shall certify" provision which requires a chief law enforcement officer (CLEO) to sign off on an application to transfer an item…

    California Scheming: Giving Special Privileges to Non-Citizens By Paul Dowling On January 1, 2015, the California Department of Motor Vehicles instituted a new policy: Illegal aliens are not to be prosecuted for identity theft, as long as the theft was used to obtain a California driver license or identification card, before the new “Driver Licenses for Illegals” law was enacted by California Democrats. US citizens who have stolen someone’s identity for this same purpose, however, are to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. This is a law created wholly by Democrats, the party…

    By Thomas Conroy Large Amounts Of High-Quality Ammo AmmoLand Gun News Midwest --(Ammoland.com)- Like any other sport or hobby, shooting can be done on the cheap, if you want. And I’ve run across plenty of shooters who take pride in shooting on the cheap, even when they don’t have to. While cheap plinking is certainly possible, frugality is not always the best policy when it comes to the shooting sports. I have learned, many times over, the truth and wisdom of the old saying “You get what you pay for.” If you’re serious about shooting, then it is probably better to “cry only…

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul was the subject of attention recently after he authored a rather sensible sounding editorial in Time magazine, entitled "We Must Demilitarize the Police." The piece focused on the excessive police response to protests in Ferguson, Missouri, which began after unarmed 18-year old Michael Brown, Jr. was shot at least six times and killed by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. With a possible eye on a 2016 presidential bid, Paul made a rather overt effort to reach out to…

The Millers then draped the officers' bodies with a Gadsden Flag ("Don't Tread on Me"), confiscated their weapons and ammunition, and told onlookers they had witnessed the start of a "revolution." The killers moved on to a nearby Walmart, where they shot and killed a concealed handgun permit holder who tried to intervene and proclaimed, "We're freedom…

Northern Virginia. His name is Sen. Adam Ebbin. He’s from Alexandria and obviously, he’s a Democrat.

U.S. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-Mo.) released a statement after a meeting with Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Chairman Martin Gruenberg and Vice Chairman Tom Hoenig discussing the…

    Brigid has some sound advice. Look around you, if you come face to face with a criminal in your home and you don’t have a firearm within immediate reach, what would you use to defend yourself? (If you think electrical cord to choke your attacker, you have watched way too many movies with Matt Damon in them). Spontaneous attacks in your home could vary from open hand, firearms, impact or edged weapons. You’d better have the same things around you to fight back. It is well worth your time to read the rest of the article.
  • DEA Chief: US Abandoned Plan To Track Cars Near Gun Shows

    28 Jan 2015 | 1:47 pm
    The Drug Enforcement Administration abandoned an internal proposal to use surveillance cameras for photographing vehicle license plates near gun shows in the United States to investigate gun-trafficking, the agency’s chief said Wednesday. DEA Administrator Michelle Leonhart said in a statement that the proposal memorialized in an employee’s email was only a suggestion, never authorized by her agency and never put into action. The AP also learned that the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives did not authorize or approve the license plate surveillance plan.

    Well, it’s a new year. Welcome to 2015. This is the year we were supposed to have flying cars and hover boards. Color me disappointed. However, what 2015 HAS given us is a voice. I say this because I just saw American Sniper yesterday. I’m not going to get into Chris Kyle as a man. I never had the privilege of knowing him. I have a few friends that operated with him, and had nothing but great things to say about him. I’m not going to sit and bitch about any Hollywood inconstancies that arise when flash and pomp take precedence over authenticity. I am, however, going to talk about the…

It turns out that Editor Roy is not only a wordsmith, but a mad scientist inventor as well. That Frankenstein guy’s got nothin.

You’d think I was a greyhound chasing one of those electric rabbits around the track, except I don’t bark (quite) as much during the mad dash. I do this because that’s where the new and interesting stuff is. Before the show starts, we pretty much know what the mainstream companies are going to be showing.

It’s a neat idea that allows you to use a bit of technology to see and track impacts on various types of targets up to a mile away. The original version was well organized and packaged into a lightweight toolbox. Carry that downrange, turn it on, aim the camera at your target, and you were off and running. Now, Bullseye has taken convenience to a whole new level. Completely contained in a standard size ammo box, the new Bullseye AmmoCam sits on the ground in front of your downrange…

    It is cool to see the trickle-down effect at work. 5 years ago, if you wanted to buy a bearing equipped manual action framelock flipper you either forked over the dough for a custom knife, or it simply didn’t exist. 3 years ago, if you wanted one you had to shell out the $225 for a Zero Tolerance 0560. Today, you can get into bearing equipped manual flippers for as little as 30 bucks. Some might think that if you are spending that little money the knife is going to be a piece of garbage – in some cases they are absolutely right.I must admit that I was a touch skeptical when I…

    I am not sure if I have the patience for a compact survival knife. I tend to favor a brute force approach when working in the outdoors. Maybe I am lazy, or stupid… or lazy and stupid… but when in doubt I often find myself reaching for the biggest, heaviest tool I can find. That’s probably why I get such a kick out of knives like the Junglas and Ontario Machete. I get that heavy piece of steel in my hand and say, “Hey, I can probably chop down a tree with this thing,” and then proceed to blast whatever lies in my path. Hours later my shoulder is aching, my shirt…

    Ed Schempp’s designs are something of an acquired taste. The man isn’t afraid to try new things, and his “function over form” design philosophy aligns nicely with Spyderco‘s credo. He has worked on a series of ethnic folders with Spyderco which have intrigued me, although never to the point of acquisition. I have always found his designs to be a little strange.That said, the Tuff slowly grew on me. Not so much from a visual standpoint, but from the idea of designing a knife that is such an unapologetically hard use folding knife. We often see “hard…

Rick Snyder considers whether to sign long-discussed legislation.Senate Bill 789, which won final legislative approval in the late hours of the 2014 lame-duck session, would eliminate county gun boards, transferring duties to county clerks, sheriffs and the Michigan State Police.Supporters say the change would speed up the CPL application process and make Michigan a true “shall issue” state, as intended under current law that took effect in 2001.But…

    Legislators can again carry concealed weapons on the floor of the N.H. House and in the legislative office building after the Republicans-led house voted to undo a prohibition on the practice put in place two years ago by Democrats.The 228-149 vote came following a debate where Democrats like Len DiSesa, former deputy police chief in Portsmouth, argued allowing guns in the chamber risks public safety.“The only people who should be armed in the House of Representatives are trained police officers.”Republicans, like Hampton Republican Fred Rice, countered that lawmakers should be entitled…

    According to a recent WDAZ report, four individuals responsible for beating and robbing a Fargo, N.D., man are in jail because of the intervention of an armed passerby.Fargo Police Lt. Joel Vettel stated that the group of suspects approached a 36-year-old man last week and ushered him to the rear of a nearby building, where they knocked him unconscious and stole his wallet. Before they could get away, however, a man legally carrying his concealed firearm stepped in to stop the crime in progress.Initial reports did not include the victim’s condition, and police did not indicate anyone was…

    18 Jan 2015 | 12:30 pm
    Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder (R) is considering signing a bill into law that would allow some accused domestic abusers with retraining orders issued against them to obtain a concealed carry gun permit.Under current law in Michigan, when a personal protective order (PPO) is issued against a person for domestic violence, that person is disqualified from having a concealed carry permit. But Senate Bill 789, passed by the Michigan state legislature in December, states that if a person is legally allowed to purchase or possess a firearm under the terms of the PPO issued against them, they must also…

    I like to start the final day of SHOT Show with a heavy dose of 10mm, so my first stop of the day was Eagle Imports to see if they had the Grand Power 10mm on display.  No such luck.  The rep. stated that they should be in the US by summer and there was no indication of pricing.  I did get m hands on one of the .40 cal models.  Felt good in my hands and nice trigger.  The X-Caliber model had a 2 3/4 lb. trigger out the factory with one of the best and quickest resets I’ve ever felt. I covered the STI Perfect 10 on day one.  Here is the (single-stack, 5″) Nitro 10. and a…

    My first order of the day was 50 push-ups. followed by a direct order to cover the new Glock MOS pistols.  Of course, I went for the G40 in 10mm.  Talk about the most confusing product number in Glock history Felt good, same clumsy trigger, and I liked the red dot.  Here is a closeup. All other models are looking at Q1 shipment to dealers.  The rep I talked to claimed that Glock is very sensitive about issues with some Gen-4 pistols and high-impulse ammo, so they are holding the G40 release back for further testing.  He specifically mentioned Underwood and Buffalo Bore as key components…

    Day two of SHOT is always more firearm-intense for me and that means more photos, so prepare yourself in advance for an image-intense post I have to start with some unfinished business from the prior day. My photo of the rack of new ported firearms from Smith and Wesson did not come out well, so I stopped back by the booth to take a photo of a single new model. 9mm and .40 S&W in 4- and 5-inch barrel lengths. My timing was good in the sense that I was afforded a photo op with the first family of shooting sports.  Unfortunately, the person taking the photo was not experienced with my…

    Jason McMillon in the WA State House. Last week there was a pro-gun rally at the Washington State Capitol building.  It’s estimated hundreds of activists showed up, many of which were Open Carrying.  This article will focus on the man who made headlines and is being cited as the main reason for the ban. Warning: Rant ahead. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again:  “Keep your fracking hands off your fracking carry gun!!!!!” What the hell is wrong with some people?  Who in their right mind thinks it’s ok to carry a firearm like the guy to the right?

    This was only my second SHOT Show, and this was the first year that I did not get deathly ill and bail after one day.  In that regard, it was a huge success for me.  The show itself is really beyond compare.  It is absolutely astronomical in size.  I spent all of day one on the second floor, which is mostly military and law enforcement gear, plus all of the major gun and accessory manufacturers.  On day one, we logged 12.1 miles on my buddy’s pedometer app.  On day two, 13.4 miles and day three saw 11.1 miles.  After day one, my feet and legs were reminding me that I’m getting…

    As I have previously mentioned, I’m a cheap SOB.  It is not that I am unwilling to spend money on things, but if I don’t have to, I’m perfectly happy hanging onto the extra money.  In the same respect, I am not hung up on brand names.  If I can get an item that works as well as a big name item, for less money, then I am all over it. If that remotely describes you, then you will want this optic!  The new Primary Arms Advanced Micro Dot (MD-ADS) is one of two things; either a budget red dot on steroids or the Aimpoint T-1 Micro’s unsung, unknown younger sibling.  I am in love with…

    Rep. Lucas and Gov. Pence. Note the hat. State Representative Jim Lucas has been a supporter of the Right to Keep and Bear arms for some time and now he is leading the charge to make Indiana the Sixth state to have “Constitutional Carry”. What is Constitutional Carry? It involves repealing draconian gun laws that place undo burdens on law abiding citizens who wish to carry a firearm for self defense.  The term is derived from The Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms as enumerated in the Second Amendment to the US Constitution. If HB 1144 passes, and it won’t without…

    Last Wednesday, January 7th 2015 was only a week after the fresh and happy beginning of the new year celebration; however it might be a day that millions people will unfortunately remember for ever like we still all do for 9/11. I know, “Je suis désarmé” (I am unarmed) is a very poor title choice but it could mean different things in French such: (of course) “I’m unarmed” or “I’m giving up”, but also “I’m soften” or even “I’m emotionally touched”… and obviously it does refer to the now popular “I…

  • Remington Model Six Slide Action

    Guns Weapons
    24 Jan 2015 | 1:39 am
    Slide action guns (“pump guns” or “trombone guns”) are usually associated, at least in Europe, with low powered .22 Rimfire rifles or with shotguns, but providing the design is properly done there is no reason why the system should not be used with high powered rifles. Remington, though, seem to be the only people to have made a success of it, and they have featured a center-fire slide action rifle in their catalogs for several years. The Model Six is the latest version, introduced in 1981 and replacing the earlier Model 760. One advantage of the slide action, if only…

    24 Jan 2015 | 1:12 am
    The Parker-Hale company of Birmingham, England, has a long history of making small arms and accessories for sporting shooters. In the early 1960s they began making major-caliber rifles based on Mauser-type actions purchased from Spain. In the early 1980s their 7.62 mm Model 82 was selected as the service sniper rifle by Australia, Canada and New Zealand. They then developed the Model 85 for British Army sniping rifle trials, but it was not selected. In 1990 the company decided to give up their rifle business and concentrate on other things, and the patents and rights to the Parker-Hale rifles…

    23 Jan 2015 | 1:59 pm
    John Mahon Marlin began making lever-action rifles and carbines in 1881 and the fact that the company he founded is still making them is sufficient proof of the excellence. There have been some small changes, but since 1889 the significant feature of the Marlin has been the solid top to the receiver and the side ejection port. The Marlin Model 375 gets its nomenclature from being chambered for the .375 Winchester cartridge, which was introduced specifically for use in lever-action rifles in order to give them a medium-to-high powered round for use in forests and close country. Note that it is…

    It was to be expected that with the western nations turning to small calibers for their military rifles, the Soviets would eventually follow suit. They had developed a necked-down version of their standard 7.62 mm M43 cartridge with a 5.56 mm bullet in the 1960s, though this appears never to have had any military applications other than as a research vehicle. What was also to be expected was that when they did move, it would be to a caliber and chambering entirely unlike anything in the west and totally incompatible with any capitalist weapon system. The resulting rifle was first seen by…

    Friedrich Heym is a long-established German gunmaker whose principal fame comes from his hand-built sporting guns – rifles, shotguns, drillings – which are virtaully tailor-made for his clients. But for those with less wealth, he also makes a stock rifle which can be bought of the shelf – though even this has sufficient variations of barrel length and caliber to be able to suit almost all aplicants. The SR-20 is basically a Mauser action, but furnished in three lengths to suit short, medium and magnum cartridge lengths. It is assembled to three possible barrel lengths; 20.5…

The SHOT Show is a firearms and equipment exhibition that has been ongoing since 1979. This year, hosted at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, proves to be the most ambitious one yet.
