    I have to admit, this is the first I have heard of this new tactic in crime fighting being employed by NYC. Quote: The encounter was an unintended consequence of the New York Police Department's embrace of the policing tactic called "Broken Windows" — the idea that going after smaller crimes such as public drinking or graffiti helps stop greater disorder such as assault and murder.

Before the alleged shoplifter left, he threatened to come back to the store and shoot the employee. Roughly two hours later, the man returned to the store and pointed a gun at employees. However, one of the employees responded by retrieving a shotgun, which prompted the criminal to flee. Police caught up with the criminal a short time later. Having been previously convicted of a felony, the man faces federal gun charges.

    Tam was wondering how two Americans, recently killed in the hostilities in Gaza, were legally serving in the IDF while retaining citizenship. I am far from an expert in this, but there have been a number of Supreme Court cases involving this topic of dual-citizenship for those of you interested. But my understanding boils down to this: you generally won’t lose your citizenship unless you renounce it or take some action in a manner that shows intent to give up citizenship. US law and policy is generally favorable for people holding dual-citizenship, residing abroad, and serving…

  • 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…

    What To Wear for Concealed Carry By Home Defense Gun When talking about self-defense and personal protection, an awful lot of attention is devoted to the waist line. Let’s face it, that’s where we carry the most important tool in our arsenal. Be it appendix carry, inside or outside the waistband, with a sturdy belt and spare magazines, the waistline plays a major role in our day to day safety. Sometimes however we count on our hips too much when we should be focusing on our body overall. Since we are at the waistline, we’ll start there and then move on. If you have a large waistline,…

During the past few months there have been a large number of national and foreign disasters that have and are occurring at this present time that can and will affect every person in America one way or another. My question is, “what’s more important to Obama looking out for America or going to so many fundraisers”. Just this week alone out of the five days he’s supposed to be the president of our country he’s going to spend three of those days flying all over the United States going to fundraisers.

    In a Legislative Update issued earlier today, California Governor Jerry Brown announced that he has signed Assembly Bill 1964 (Dickinson), a measure that will eliminate the “single shot” exemption to California’s Roster of “not unsafe” handguns.  AB 1964’s changes to section 32100 of the California Penal Code, which will go into effect on January 1, 2015, will make it virtually impossible for law-abiding residents of the Golden State to acquire a “non-Roster” handgun in common use for lawful purposes, like self-defense.

    A few days ago Modern Service Weapons informed us of Heckler & Koch's newest pistol; the VP9. Today I had the opportunity to handle one. 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…

    Well it looks like the ban hammer was dropped by the U.S. Government today via “sanctions”. The US Department of Commerce has banned all financial transactions with both Kalashnikov Concern and Izhmash which means imports of many popular firearms from those manufacturers will now stop. You can read bout the announcement here. If you already own a firearm from either of those companies you’ll be able to keep it  or resell it. If you still have one on layaway you’ll have to contact the Treasury Dept. for more info. Hopefully this doesn’t cause panic buying of AK…

    12 Jul 2014 | 10:13 pm
    Someone over on Reddit posted about this range rental AR-15 that went kaboom after 100,000 rounds. Good thing no one was hurt. Back story: I work at a SoCal indoor shooting range and this was ‘Maggie’ our house-built AR (so cleverly named for the furniture, har har). This poor thing was rode hard and put away dirty more often than not for approximately 3 years of 7-days-a-week operation. Our best estimate on the low end is that it has seen about 100,000 rounds in its lifetime (probably much more, with a minimum of 1,000 rounds-a-day going through it). Rebarreled, replacement gas…

    The Battlefield: The Silver Spur Ranch in Encampment, Wyoming. We awoke at dawn. Most of us were slightly nervous, but energized by the certainty of impending combat. 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.

    The Beretta 1301 Tactical is all business with ghost ring sights and a rail for optics. Have you ever shot an M1 Garand, followed by an M1 Carbine? Or perhaps a FAL, followed by a Ruger 10/22? 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…
  • Silencing the 300 AAC Blackout

    You have to admit, a silencer makes any rifle cooler – like this SilencerCo Specwar 762 on a Daniel Defense DDM4v5 300 Blackout. Last time we got into an ammunition geek-fest and talked about the variety of commercial ammo available for the 300 AAC Blackout and the endless tinkering you can do as a reloader for that caliber. Perhaps even more fun than creating endless varieties of ammunition for the 300 AAC Blackout is shooting it with silencers. With subsonic cartridges, usually those firing 208 grain or heavier projectiles at velocities of 1,000 fps or so, you’ll have some serious…
  • The 6.8 Remington SPC: An Up Close and Personal Look

      It looks like a standard AR rifle, but with bigger bullets. I love the AR platform. And yes, it is a platform as it’s a design model that allows of near infinite customization. You can add accessories until your rifle looks like a Pakistani Jingle Truck. More importantly, since the rifle is a platform, you can obtain or build one in a dozen or more different calibers. One of my favorites is 6.8 Remington SPC. Originally developed as a possible replacement for the 5.56mm by some folks from the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit, United States Special Operations Command and Remington, the…
  • Surplus Ammunition: Shooting a Little Bit of History, Literally

    Tom McHale

    Surplus ammo is not just inexpensive, but interesting and fun – if you give it the proper respect. Remember when surplus 8mm Mauser ammo was more abundant than White House press conference fibs? I do. Not so very long ago, you could buy as much as you could store for less than 5 cents a round. Now that same round is about 60 cents – if you can find it. Similar scenarios apply for other common military rounds like .308, .30-06, 7.62×39 and 7.62x54R. While harder to find, and a lot more expensive than it used to be, it can still be cheaper than newly manufactured ammo. While…

By driving the action down instead of back and over the top of your hand the muzzle flip is greatly reduced. This allows you to rapidly fire 45 caliber rounds on a full auto, burst or semi auto while easily staying on target. It is often billed as a…

Debney said that unit sales for handguns jumped 30% in the most recent quarter. In speaking with several authorities on the retail side of the…

But the women behind the magazines and barrels aren’t your stereotypical gunslingers; instead they’re moms, doctors, lawyers and secretaries.

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 mimi 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 extended…
  • 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…

    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…

    This is the final post in a two-part review of the Irving Gun Show on July 19, 2014, sponsored by Premier Gun Shows.  Yesterday, I discussed the show opening, general traffic trends from 9AM to 2PM and provided a list of businesses in attendance.  Today, we get to the interesting part of the review. 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. Beretta ARX 100 – $1699 92FS blk – $569, SS – $699 Colt LE 6920 – $929 AR-15…

    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…

  • 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…

  • Gun Control Australia-Style: Would It Work in the U.S.?

    John Chiafos
    26 Jun 2014 | 8:32 am
    President Obama has made no secret that he models his gun control agenda on Australia’s. When you look at that nation’s reaction to the terrible 1996 mass shooting at Port Arthur, it does seem like an American Democrat’s fantasy: In the wake of a firearms-related calamity, a great nation came together and rid itself of firearms. The result has been a sharp decrease in firearms-related crime amongst private citizens in the Land Down Under. After the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut, in which 20 year-old Adam Lanza murdered nearly two dozen young boys and…
