    Watch the latest video at video.foxnews.comI wanted to wait until some evidence was in about the Ferguson, Missouri shooting.  However, after watching this video of a robbery that Michael Brown committed shortly before he was shot by police, I find it credible that Brown could instigate a fight with a police officer.  This is one big guy who was very belligerent.  Whether he also attacked the police officer isn't clear at this point, but I would find it quite plausible that he did.More commentary from a former federal prosecutor on this new video is available here.Watch the…

    I’ve been thinking of an AK pistol with an arm brace… only trouble is, I’ve never shot or handled one. Nobody I know owns one, so I don’t have an easy way to get some time with one. I’d like to know thoughts (either positive or negative) on them. All that I ask is that you are more verbose than ‘it sucks’ or ‘I like it’ so that I can get a sense of how they are. Thanks.

A woman who lives nearby noticed the situation and went to investigate. While the neighbor was near the car, the carjacker accelerated, injuring her. The neighbor’s husband responded by firing at the carjacker, striking him. The wounded carjacker fled the scene, but was captured a short time later, after he crashed the stolen vehicle.

On the previous Thursday, a patient, Richard Plotts, entered the office of his psychiatrist, Lee Silverman, M.D., with his caseworker, Theresa Hunt. Plotts then became very upset and killed Hunt with two shots to her head. While this was happening, Dr. Silverman tried to take cover, drew his handgun, and shot the attacker three times. The doctor suffered slight wounds from bullets that grazed his head and hit his thumb. Staffers then succeeded in subduing the wounded…

Seventeen of the top 23 kale states voted for Barack Obama in 2012, while 11 of the top 13 bacon states voted for Mitt Romney. The moderate states on the kale/bacon spectrum were also the most balanced politically, splitting equally between Obama and Romney in 2012. I’m living in the wrong state.

    Assemblyman Ron Dancer of New Jersey has introduced “Shaneen’s Law,” legislation that would give judges the option of not sending citizens like Shaneen Allen to prison.

They also report a digital ad buy in other states like Iowa, Louisiana, Nevada, Kentucky, North Carolina and Georgia. This buy starts now, so they aren’t waiting until the elections to do it.

I felt that this was an unusual circumstance and decided to submit an electronic ATF Form 1 back on July 26th using my personal Gun Trust to test out the current time for approvals on using a Trust from a Gun Trust Lawyer®. While I was not surprised to have not received an approval on July 27th, I have been checking the status regularly. I was surprised to receive an approval early Saturday morning August 2, 2014.

    The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta has ruled a Florida law restricting what doctors can tell patients about gun ownership to be constitutional on Friday. The court ruled this law legitimately regulates professional conduct and does not regulate professional conduct and does not regulate the doctor's first amendment free speech rights. This ruling by the Atlanta court overturned a previous decision that declared the law unconstitutional. There is still an injunction blocking enforcement of the 2011 law, which has become popularly known as "Docs vs. Glocks." It was challenged by…

    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…

    Demilitarizing the police sounds wonderful, but what about the civilian stockpile? 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."

    Anschütz now has its own importation hub in the USA. This new facility, located in Trussville, Alabama, will operate as a direct extension of the parent company, J.G. ANSCHÜTZ GmbH & Co.KG of Germany. Having its own importation facility will help Anschütz supply rifles to the American market more efficiently. Steven Boelter, President of Anschütz North American (NA) operations, tells us that that the new Alabama facility will allow Anschütz to import a wider range of products and carry a larger standing inventory. That’s good for rimfire and air rifle customers. The new…

This is not how I would set mine up, but I will go into further detail with this in just a second. Build I was excited to finally get to shoot the Vector, and…

    Shaneen Allen is living a nightmare. The Pennsylvania resident and lawful gun owner of one week fell prey to New Jersey’s strict gun laws and was arrested for illegal possession of a firearm in the state. While the single mother of two young children is facing up to three and a half years in prison, one New Jersey lawmaker is trying to correct this miscarriage of justice. Assemblyman Ron Dancer has introduced “Shaneen’s Law,” legislation that would give judges the option of not sending citizens like Shaneen Allen to prison.

      Notice something different about this Sig P226? No decocking lever, and it’s got a safety. There’s no doubt about the Sig P226’s status as a reliable and quality handgun. After all, hard-core gun users like Navy Seals and Texas Rangers use the P226, or in the military’s case, the MK25. Like most of the other Sig Sauer “P” models, the standard P226 is a hammer-fired, double / single action design. The first shot requires a 10-pound trigger pull to cock the hammer and break the shot. Subsequent shots only require about 4 ½ pounds of trigger pressure as the hammer is…

Getting home and tearing open Smith & Wesson M&P22 Compact box, my very first impression was, “Oh snap!” The next thought that crossed my mind was that this gun won’t be out of the box for six seconds before I’m compelled to attach a silencer. A SilencerCo Sparrow would be an excellent fit. The compact size just screams harmony and balance with the diminutive SilencerCo Sparrow. I love .22s. Full size, compact, micro – I…

Those who plan to use suppressors or muzzle devices on the Mk9 should be advised that the barrel is threaded in 1/2″-36 – this is the case with almost all 9mm AR-style carbines, perhaps due to the significant…

Given the rapid influx of titanium framelock flippers on the market, I initially thought that I would skip over today’s review, the Zero Tolerance 0801. The wide shape, chunky build, and monochromatic look of the knife all lead me to quickly dismiss the 0801.It wasn’t until I handled the 0801 in person that I decided to buy the knife.

This time around we spent some time with the matte black RM08G Dual-Illuminated RMR Reflex Sight. Housed in rugged forged aluminum, the RMR is extremely tough yet lightweight. It has new easy-to-use adjusters with audible clicks allow for quick windage and elevation adjustments. The new RMR08G Trijicon is tougher than any alternative and is suitable for military, law enforcement, responsible civilians…
  • Bad Choices Lead to Conviction in Detroit Porch Killing

    248 Shooter
    8 Aug 2014 | 8:47 am
    We reported on the Renisha McBride slaying commonly referred to as the Detroit Porch Slaying a few months ago when the news hit the wire. On Thursday Theodore Wafer the homeowner who shot Renisha was found guilty of second-degree murder. He is now in custody and awaiting the final sentencing where he can server 25 to life. To some this was a victory, to others a travesty. The mainstream media has spun this into a racial issue, a gun issue a self-defense issue and compared it to the Zimmerman trials. The fact is it was really none of the above. Theodore Wafer was a man that made several…

  • Chicago, Concealed Carry, And Why Robert Heinlein Was Wrong About “Polite Society”

    14 Aug 2014 | 3:33 pm
    Concealed carry has steadily been spreading across the United States over the past 30 years. It is now accepted to one degree or another in all 50 states. The next major series of battles will be forcing “may issue” jurisdictions who have denied a citizen’s right to carry for arbitrary and capricious reasons to convert to “shall issue” jurisdictions, where the state must provide a reason why citizen’s may not carry.The District of Columbia was/is the last large “gun free zone” in the United States, and a federal judge’s recent decision affirming the right to carry a handgun…

    A man who attempted to help police foil an armed robbery at a Crestwood phone store by firing at the fleeing suspect may not have broken the law, but firearms trainers say he ignored a basic rule of carrying a gun in public: Don’t try to be a hero.The 56-year-old man, who has a permit to carry a concealed gun in Illinois, won’t face charges for firing two shots outside an AT&T store in Crestwood, according to the Cook County state’s attorney’s office. A police officer pursuing the suspect had to duck for cover, not knowing where the shots were coming from,…

    Faith Kohler wears skinny jeans, ankle boots, chunky bracelets and cropped jackets. She wasn’t about to settle for a handbag that didn’t fit her style.And that was the problem: She couldn’t find a purse that would fit her wardrobe and also her handgun.After years of wearing her firearm on her hip as a federal agent, Kohler, 44, was looking for an option that would give her more versatility: a concealed carry handbag. So she’s created her own handbag company, Been & Badge, with Milwaukee-native handbag designer Jodi Been, who lives and works in Los…

    A new report released Wednesday by the Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC) reveals more than 11.1 million Americans now possess concealed carry permits and licenses, more than double the estimated 4.6 million who had licenses in 2007. That 11.1 million number may be conservative, too.

    I attended the Texas Trophy Hunters Association Extravaganza in Ft. Worth last year.  You can access the two-part review from the ‘Product Reviews’ page.  I took my wife this year and we stayed for just over two hours.  She is not into hunting or gun shows or trade shows, so it says something about the family nature of this event that she had both an enjoyable time and walked away with a couple interesting products.  And yes, there was the food Since many vendors returned from last year, I decided to post a simple photo tour.  I took over a hundred photos and envisioned a…

    Pat Harrington of Shotgun Blasters is well-known for his innovative and highly imaginative shotgun builds. I was very honored to be part of one of the early concepts, a Mossberg 500 build called ‘The Predator’.  I purchased the very first Predator during the early stages of the most recent panic.  Shotgun slugs raced up in price just like other ammo, so I only put 30 rounds downrange – just enough to get the feel of the platform and to zero the optic and laser at 25 yards. The very first Predator build is now on sale by Shotgun Blasters.  To certify that it is indeed the…

  • Weird Gun of the Week: The Protector Palm Pistol

    John Chiafos
    17 Aug 2014 | 6:00 pm
    This week’s WGOTW is a fascinating attempt at firearms innovation. It looks similar to the Lemon Squeezers of old–those palm pistols designed for concealed carry or assassination. But when you see Constitution Arms’ Palm Pistol, you might notice it’s a little bulky for a pocket pistol. You might also notice that it kind of looks like a squirt gun…. or some kind of weird computer controller… or an awl handle… or something. But the reasons for the Palm Pistol’s unusual aesthetics make it one of the most intelligently designed, purposeful Weird…
  • Five Guns We Love to Customize

    What’s funner than tricking out a handgun or rifle? Um… nothing? To some of us, taking a stock firearm and stuffing it with accessories until it’s a tacti-cool Frankengun is half the fun of gun ownership. But what’re the best weapons to customize? If you wanted a gun right now you could tinker with forever, what would it be? Let’s take a look at the five most “customizable” guns on the market. We’ve added some pretty awesome Youtube clips from around the web just so you could see how ridiculous these things could get. Enjoy!
  • What Makes a Good Trigger Pull?

    John Chiafos
    13 Aug 2014 | 12:00 am
    If you’ve  studied firearms for any length of time, you’ve heard about trigger pull. Like, how much the Smith & Wesson M & P’s trigger used to suck but now it’s awesome. And how you can never have a real 1911 until it’s had a custom trigger job. Or how there’s not a speed shooter on earth that would tolerate a trigger pull over two pounds. But that’s half the equation. Great trigger pull, as we mentioned in our last article on the subject, is a delicate balance of machine and man. In part one, we analyzed the mechanics of trigger pull. In this article, we talk about the…
  • Weird Gun of the Week: The Cobray Pocket Pal

    The Cobray Pocket Pal is a mystery. We know almost nothing about this pocket pistol except from what we learn from Youtube user LifeSizePotato, who has the one of the top three awesomest eclectic gun collections on the Interweb. Frankly, all the available info on the Internet about this firearm, even its Wikipedia entry, seems to be derived from LifeSizePotato’s Youtube videos about the weapon. So what do we know about this relic? It looks almost exactly like a tiny pistol from the early 1900s called the Mossberg Brownie. While the Brownie was a four-barreled .22 with a revolving firing…

    If you’re a new shooter, and have ever fallen down one of the many forum\youtube\gun store rabbit hole discussions involving trigger pull, you’ve probably come up with any or all of the following questions: What makes a trigger pull good? What makes it bad? What’s a good trigger pull weight for a concealed carry gun? How do they measure trigger pull “weight” anyhow? Why are revolver triggers heavier than those on semi-automatics? What is a “good, clean break?” What exactly makes a trigger pull “crisp,” and why is “crisp” good? In short, what does all this stuff mean?
