    28 Jul 2014 | 8:00 am
    The nation's capitol, long infamous for its strict gun control, is now one step closer to being forced to comply with the Second Amendment. On Saturday, the United States District Court for the District of Columbia issued a decision in Palmer v. District of Columbia, which challenged D.C.'s ban on carrying firearms in public for self-defense. The court's opinion prohibits D.C. officials from enforcing certain provisions of local law that effectively prevent the carrying of firearms in public for self-defense. Whether the District will seek further review of the court's decision remains to be…

Their goals range from pickups in the General Assembly by "pro-2A" — pro-Second Amendment — candidates to electing a governor who would sign a repeal of Senate Bill 1160, the sweeping gun control legislation enacted in response to the December 2012 shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Explanations are given and the list includes breakfast cereals, convertibles, and guns: …Lately, however, gun sales have fallen, sometimes sharply. The big reasons why this is so seem to be that there’s little in the way of likely gun control for gun enthusiasts to motivate new purchases, and also that everyone who has wanted to buy a gun in the past couple of years has already bought one (or seven). In the first quarter of 2014, the guns-and-ammo-focused Sportsman’s Warehouse retail chain saw comparable stores sales drop…

As for me, I wouldn’t carry there until it irons out. Of course, I don’t go there because of their carry rules. That may change if the unfuck themselves.

If a stay were to be granted, this policy would doubtless change, and I can’t guarantee that I’ll be able to update this blog post in real time. So be careful out there. Looking at the memo and the scenarios they outline, it does appear that anyone caught carrying will have all of their information taken down and the police will pursue “potential further…
  • NRA Wins in Court Over Florida’s Gag Law

    I have mixed feelings about the NRA-backed bill that prevents doctors from asking about gun ownership, because I believe that the government should never have the power to control speech in that kind of manner. I realized that many professions are regulated in these kinds of terms, but I’m not sure that all bad advice ought to be illegal advice, and I’m not sure why we can’t protect our privacy with a polite “Mind your own business, doc.” But apparently the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals disagrees with me, and delivered NRA a win in the case.

    Via Alan Gura, who is the attorney for the case. This was the case challenging the District of Colombia’s ban on carrying firearms in public, that the court had been sitting on for quite some time. The court left the door open for some regulation of carry, including licensing, but “consistent with constitutional standards enabling people to exercise their Second Amendment right to bear arms.” Needless to say, this is a significant win. Probably the most significant win since Illinois was forced to become shall-issue in the case of Moore v. Madigan. Hopefully this will…

  • What to do if your ATF eForm is rejected.

    David M. Goldman
    6 Jul 2014 | 5:22 am
    One of the benefits in using a Gun Trust is that you are able to submit electronic applications with the new ATF website. This is possible because a Gun Trust does not require a CLEO signature nor fingerprints. Currently only Form1s can be submitted electronically, but Form 4s should be back online soon. It is important to fill out the application correctly as there is not a way to correct mistakes that are made like with the paper forms. A mistake in the past would have put your application in the back of the line, but not any more. If you make a mistake on an ATF eform…
  • ATF eForms Approval for Gun Trust in only 1 Day

    David M. Goldman
    26 Jun 2014 | 9:58 am
    One of our clients submitted an application to build a Form 1 on June 24, 2014 and was surprised when they checked their email the next morning and found that the ATF had approved the application to build the SBR. When I first received the call, I thought it was a mistake, but then I walked the client through the Atfonline website and the process of printing the electronic Form 1. I have provided a copy for those who are as skeptical as I was about a 1 day approval process on a Form 1 from the ATF. Not sure if this was a mistake or the ATF had just cleared out the backlog of Form 1's but if…
  • ATF eForms adds Form 1 for Gun Trusts and time to process applications reduced.

    David M. Goldman
    24 Jun 2014 | 10:56 am
    Today I received an announcement and verified that you can now process Form 1s online again. For those with a Gun Trust, you can now process these electronically again. Still no word on when Form 4s will be available to process online. There are currently 15 legal examiners in the background investigation phase of hiring. ATF has been authorized to use overtime funding to process NFA applications and they reduced their outstanding applications by 23%. They are currently processing around 6000 applications a week and have a backlog of 62,000. This means that we might be looking at as little as…
  • Can a Gun Trust own or Possess an SBR in IL?

    David M. Goldman
    24 Jun 2014 | 6:20 am
    As of January 1, 2013 it became legal persons with a C&R license to purchase, transfer, make, possess, and use an SBR in IL. The Law is poorly written and only indicates that it restricts possession. While it has been clear that a trust could not purchase an SBR in IL, there has been a question about whether an SBR purchased legally in another state by a trust could then be in the possession of a Trustee, authorized by the trust to possess the firearms in the state of IL when that person had their own C&R license. ATF has recently rejected such a request stating that a trust may not have an…
  • Supreme Court Decision on "Straw Purchases" Does Not Make Firearms Gift Purchases Illegal

    David M. Goldman
    23 Jun 2014 | 1:59 pm
    Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in a case involving a Virginia man who could legally purchase a firearm and did so for an uncle from Pennsylvania. Even though the Pennsylvania man who ultimately bought the gun was not legally prohibited from owning a firearm and passed a background check, the Court, in a 5-4 decision, said the transfer violated federal "straw purchase" law. The ruling has resulted in confusion among federal firearm licensees (FFLs), particularly relating to gift purchases of firearms. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has been asked to provide…

    I was considering one of these. Glad Remington will make the fix and restart production. Since its rollout at the outset of the year, many have argued that the Remington R51 was a lemon. However, it wasn’t until today that Remington publicly addressed the issues and concerns that many purchasers were reportedly having with the pistol. Here is what Remington had to say, according to Guns & Ammo: “Earlier this year, we launched the innovative R51 subcompact pistol to critical acclaim.

    Dean Weingarten

    By Dean Weingarten Dean Weingarten Arizona - -(Ammoland.com)- It wasn’t until 1932 that a permit was required to carry a concealed weapon in the District of Columbia.   It was legal to carry pistols openly until 1943.   At the time, it was clear that the prohibition on open carry did not apply to long arms. In 1973 the District of Columbia was granted “home rule”.   In 1976, the new District government passed the Firearms Control Regulations Act of 1975.    The law went into effect in 1977.   It has been over 70 years since it was legal to openly carry a pistol in…

There are paper target sports like NRA High Power, steel target sports like silhouettte, clay target sports like trap and skeet, and even things like 3-Gun where you might see paper, steel and clays all on one stage.

    We know that many of our readers are now tumbling their brass in liquid media rather than dry media such as corn-cob or walnut shells. When done with STM stainless tumbling media (small ss pins), this system really does work, producing brass that is clean “inside and out”.

    You wanted to see something else?It seems that the open carry crowd in Texas is upset at some women lawfully displaying their breasts in public.Somehow, it seems to me that it would be a "god" (goddess?) given right if such a thing were to exist since breasts, unlike firearms, are part of the human body.   Firearms are not only man made, but a fairly recent one on the historic timeline (maybe a thousand years or so back), which seems to knock the possibility that a deity had anything to do with their creation.In fact, I would think that even the most hard core religious fanatic…

Code § 7-2502.02(a)(4) and enforcing D.C. Code § 22-4504(a) unless and until such time as the District of Columbia adopts a licensing mechanism consistent with constitutional standards…

    “The concealed carry firearm is not an invisible shield. Just because you have it on you, doesn’t mean that it’s there to protect you in its dormant state.” In this week’s episode of Tips &Tactics, Tatiana Whitlock stresses the importance of fine-tuning your situational awareness if you plan to carry concealed.  Tatiana is a Refuse to Be a Victim® and NRA-certified basic pistol instructor, trained range safety officer, Krav Maga student and self-defense expert.

My time spent with the VP9 was brief but can share a few observations.Red Recoil Spring (nice touch)The trigger is good. I would place its feel between a FNH FNS and a Walther PPQ; with the PPQ being a bit better with a very short reset. The grip is nearly identical (if not the same) as the P30. Located at the rear of the slide, on both sides, are a set of 'ears' or 'tabs'. I assume these are present to aid in slide manipulation and I appreciate them…

The gun I’m using for this demonstration is a .40 S&W Beretta Px4 with a Crimson Trace Rail Master Pro. That’s a combination light and laser unit that works with virtually any gun with a rail – like this Px4.

I doubt the enemy ever sleeps. They’re too busy digging a tunnel network to support their underground trafficking enterprise. We’d been the ones to choose the field of battle – the Silver Spur Ranch in Encampment, Wyoming. Encampment is an eerily appropriate name given the enemy’s permanent dug in positions. Our foe has a great propaganda machine, although I have absolutely no idea how they can afford such a thing.

Or maybe a full size over and under 12 gauge, followed by a compact coach gun? If so, then you already have an idea of the relative feel of the Beretta 1301 Tactical shotgun. What attracted me to this gun for testing and evaluation is its compact size, light weight and super quick handling. You can think of it as a shotgun carbine. With an 18.5 inch barrel and short stock, the entire length is just…

But the women behind the magazines and barrels aren’t your stereotypical gunslingers; instead they’re moms, doctors, lawyers and secretaries. The one thing they have in common is their decision to exercise their second amendment right to bear arms. In 2005 only 13 percent of gun owners in the United States were women. That number jumped to 23-percent of women reporting firearm ownership in 2011—a 77 percent increase in less than a decade. “A lot of ladies started out, they wanted…
  • Customer Relationship Marketing & What It Means for Our Customers

    admin
    8 Jun 2014 | 8:07 am
    Mary KirkpatrickSunday, June 8, 2014 Earlier today, I was reading an interesting article by Wade Harman about customer relationship marketing and the importance of informing, rather than promoting to, the customer.  That is something that we strongly believe also.  What exactly is the difference? At www.Gunhandbags.com, it means just one thing:  If we wouldn’t buy it for ourselves, or want someone to sell it to our moms/sisters/friends when they didn’t need it or it wasn’t the right product for them, we won’t sell it to YOU.  We believe in karma, doing the right thing, and just…

Not to be considered legal advice. Saturday, May 3, 2014 This legislation, (recently signed into law by Governor Nathan Deal in April 2014), addresses several flaws in Georgia firearms laws (pertaining to Georgia Weapons Carry License or GWL) as follows: Remove fingerprinting for renewal of GWLs.

  • Upgrading the Ruger 22/45 Lite

    Kerry Garrison
    17 Jul 2014 | 7:47 pm
    The Ruger 22/45 Lite is an extremely popular handgun that combines the feel of a 1911 with Ruger reliability in a .22 LR format. The slide lock, safety, and trigger are all designed to mimic the 1911. For a gun that sells for around $385, the 22/45 light is an excellent value….but is it perfect? No exactly, but with a few quick and inexpensive mods, it damned near can be. Magazine Seating The most common complaint is that the magazines are difficult to seat properly because the magazine base sits completely flush with the frame. TANDEMKROSS (TK) solves this problem with a simple…
  • Should guns be allowed in schools / sporting events?

    Kerry Garrison
    16 Mar 2014 | 2:24 pm
    This past week I engaged in an interesting debate with Forbes contributor Bob Cook. The topic was gun carrying during sporting events, specifically child’s events. Bob starts off explaining some current and proposed laws without letting any bias cloud his statement of the facts. The Bob’s bias comes through loud and clear: I’m not sure I would call myself anti-gun, because I understand the appeal (and utility) of hunting and hitting the shooting range. However, I don’t understand the mindset of feeling like I would need to carry a gun as I would carry my smartphone. I know the…

    Since I get asked about my daily carry gun probably more often than anything else, I finally decided to write it all out so I can just point people to an article and not have to explain it every time. When I decided that I wanted to pick my EDC gun my selection process took right at three months. This was not a decision I was going to make without extensive research and testing. The decision was based on a set of criteria: Reliability Size (carry consideration) My ability to shoot it accurately Caliber Round capacity Safety considerations This article is not intended to sell you specifically…

  • Study Suggests More Concealed Carry Permits, Less Crime

    21 Jul 2014 | 2:48 pm
    As the number of Americans with concealed carry permits has increased, a new study reveals that during the same time period, the percentage of violent crimes has decreased. The study, conducted by the Crime Prevention Research Center, reveals that 11.1 million Americans now carry concealed weapons, a significant increase from 4.5 million in 2007. And that 146-percent increase coincides with a 22-percent decrease in both murder and violent crime rates.The survey is the first measure of concealed carry permits since 2011, when the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) found that eight…

    On July 6, Students for Concealed Carry Foundation (SCCF) filed suit against Ohio State University, alleging OSU is infringing state laws meant to guard the exercise of Second Amendment rights.Ohio’s preemption statute says the state of the Ohio is the only body in the state that can pass regulations that pertain to firearms. This statute creates a uniform law throughout the state. Ohio State University is punishing students and faculty for exercising their constitutional rights–their 2nd Amendment rights–and the lawsuit addresses that.He said the university is skirting…

    Arizona - -(Ammoland.com)- Minbcnews.com is running a poll about a proposal in Michigan to make obtaining a concealed carry permit cheaper, faster and easier in the state.  The proposal would eliminate the nearly 100 year old county gun boards, which at present have little to do.   Under the proposal background checks would be run by the State Police instead of county boards.  The 83 County gun boards, which have been accused of delaying permits, would be eliminated.The bill has passed the Senate.   It would have to pass the House and be signed by the Governor to become law.Here is the…

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) – A Michigan lawmaker wants to streamline the process to get a concealed carry permit.A new law would eliminate county gun boards from reviewing permit applications.Right now, if you apply for a permit, you would pay $105, and go through a review with local law enforcement.The new bill discounts the fee to $90, and shifts the responsibility to State Police, who run a background check instead of an in-person interview.“What the local sheriffs and prosecutors want to do is give people the…

  • McNally Drop-In Trigger For Gen-4 Glock 20 Part II

    algorithmist
    28 Jul 2014 | 5:59 am
    This is my final commentary on the McNally drop-In trigger for my gen-4 Glock 20.  I now have over 300 rounds through the pistol after installing the trigger and an uncounted number of dry-fire drills.  I am still quite pleased with the feel and function of the drop-in. Here are a couple results from recent practice sessions.  The first is a one-hand, trigger-control drill.  Shots were fired at a casual pace with adequate time to obtain a stable sight picture.  The drill was performed indoors at 7 yards and all shots were fired one-handed (right hand). My next drill was performed the…

As always, firearm prices are for NIB models and cash transactions, unless otherwise indicated.  Here are a few of the items that caught my eye while walking back and forth across the floor.

    This is a review of the Irving Gun Show, sponsored by Premier Gun Shows, held on July 19, 2014.  This is the first Premier show at the Irving venue, which happens to be one of my favorites. I was lucky to time my arrival to a couple minutes before 9AM, which facilitated a quick shot of opening traffic without having to wait very long for the show opening.  I actually had high hopes for the opening due to the number of cars in the parking area.  This was until I heard about a photo shoot taking place at the same facility. This photo was taken just before 9AM with my back almost against the…

  • An AR-15 for Home Defense?

    John Chiafos
    25 Jul 2014 | 7:03 am
    So you want a home defense firearm. Should you purchase a handgun, shotgun, or rifle? Lord preserve you if you ask the Internet for help. There is so much information, most of it entirely contradictory, that it must be impossible for a home defense newcomer to home defense to find the answer that’s best for them. Conventional wisdom-i.e. we’re not sure who first said it–says the best home defense firearm money can buy is a shotgun, maybe a Mossberg 500 in 12 gauge; something cost-effective and powerful. That conventional wisdom might be much less conventional than you think.
  • Is It Okay to Dry-fire Your Gun?

    John Chiafos
    8 Jul 2014 | 11:40 pm
      Yes. Are there exceptions to the above answer? Yes. We’ll go through them below. If you were to Google the question that makes up the title to this article, you’d notice a megaton of conflicting information out there on the interweb. If you look at forums—don’t, by the way—you’ll find answers galore, almost none of them the same, some of them not sane. Many shooters conclude that the practice of dry-firing will lead to a damaged firing pin, especially with rimfire rifles or pistols. The idea is that when a gun’s hammer drops on its firing pin, striking…

  • Weird Gun of the Week: The Dardick 1500

    John Chiafos
    1 Jul 2014 | 9:36 am
    The Dardick 1500 is one of the most outside-the-box firearms ever created. It’s super hard to find, as fewer than a hundred were produced. It’s one of the ugliest machines ever to shoot ammunition. It’s packed with great ideas–though like last week’s WGOTW, the LM-4 Semmerling, the execution on those ideas was seriously, seriously flawed. Let’s take a look at this unseemly magazine-fed revolver, the Dardick 1500. The Mechanics It’s hard to know where to start explaining how unusual this weapon is. To start, it is a revolver that feeds from a magazine inside the firearm’s…
