    You could have fooled me: There are reports that the former Curves storefront at 2105 N. Pollard Street, in a small strip mall along Lee Highway, will be occupied by a gun shop. We, the citizens of Arlington County, oppose a gun shop at this location. We are alarmed that the shop is within 2 blocks of an Arlington County Public School that houses the HB Woodlawn Program and Stratford Program. Further, two elementary schools (Taylor and Arlington Science Focus), are only blocks away. Four additional schools are within 5 miles: Washington-Lee High School, St. Agnes, Key Elementary,…

    The Truth About Guns

  • Drone Hunting, Coming to A Suburb Near You?

    Robert Farago
    26 May 2015 | 6:00 pm
    “Unmanned drones are being piloted over private homes by burglars in a bid to identify potential targets,” the UK’s telegraph.co.uk reports. “Detectives fear the mini-helicopters, which can be bought for as little as £30, are being deployed to take surveillance photographs from above, posing a brand new threat to home security. Piloting them over perimeter walls will allow criminals to carry out low-risk reconnaissance around homes which cannot be seen from the public road.” This is not a UK-only phenomena . . . It reflects a growing trend in the United States…

There are significant exceptions. Carry is banned in schools, polling places while…

    North Carolina group raises funds on Memorial Day weekend for Special Forces families Fayetteville, North Carolina - In a sea of mud surrounding the Capitol building, thousands gathered on Saturday, March 4, 1865, to witness Abraham Lincoln’s second inauguration. The Civil War, running for four long years, was weeks from ending and the focus of his address. Stepping to the edge of the East Portico to address a wounded nation, Lincoln’s speech was much shorter than his first. The end, found in the fourth paragraph, included a plea for the soldiers caught in this conflict.

  • Prior to last Monday's decision striking down DC May Issue concealed handgun law, there were only 26 permit holders

    24 May 2015 | 11:11 am
    U.S. District Judge Frederick J. Scullin Jr. decision on Monday to strike down DC's concealed handgun law contained some interesting information.  Over six months virtually no permits have been given out.  Part of that may be because very few people have been allowed to get permits to own a handgun (a separate process) and those that do might not believe that they will get approval.  From the Washington Times:Since October, when regulations for the issuance of concealed carry permits took effect, through May 9, the Metropolitan Police Department received 107 applications and…

As is the case for most families, I have several soldiers in my tree who died in combat. For most of them, that was the end of their family tree. We remember the surviving veterans because we’re all descended from them, but those killed in action tend to be cousins, uncles, and sometimes even aunts. Most of the time I try to do thorough research on…

    I’ve noticed a flurry of state news in the past two days, some of which is significant. First, the Texas Legislature has sent a Right to Hunt amendment to the voters for approval. The number of hunters continues to decline, which translates into a loss of political power. It’s important to get these constitutional protections in place before it becomes a real issue. Animal rights people are far more numerous than anti-gunners, and unlike people who favor gun control, animal rights supporters are very passionate and motivated. Governor Dayton has signed the budget bill that…
  • New York City Legal AR-15

    This is apparently what a New York City legal AR-15 looks like, now that the City has approved the Ares SCR for residents to own. New York City bans any long gun that can hold more than 5 rounds. As you can see, other than having traditional ergonomics, it is an AR in nearly every other way. I feel sorry for people who have to live under the mass delusion that banning guns that look scary, and banning superior ergonomics, is somehow saving lives. The rifle comes with a 5 round magazine, but it’ll accept STANAG magazines, which can be easily bought anywhere else in the country, even in…

    Sunday marked the 20th anniversary of the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City by anti-government extremist Timothy McVeigh. McVeigh's act of domestic terrorism killed 168 people and injured nearly 700 others. Many of the victims were children, who were in a daycare center in the building. At the time it was the largest terrorist attack in the nation's history (since surpassed by 9/11), and it was carried out not by an Islamic fundamentalist, but by an American-born insurrectionist who believed the Second Amendment provided him with an individual right to make war…

I've been blogging here at The Huffington Post for quite some time about the threat of insurrectionism in the pro-gun movement. Typically, pro-gun activists are coy when confronted about their perverted belief that the Second Amendment provides an individual right to shoot and kill government officials in response to perceived "tyranny." But last week, a threat that is so often implicit was made perfectly explicit by a leader in Texas' open-carry…

    "When I hold you in my arms and I feel my finger on your trigger, I know no one can do me no harm." - The Beatles, "Happiness is a Warm Gun" Over the holiday break, the gun-related death of a woman in an Idaho Walmart captured the nation's attention and stirred debate about the costs/benefits of gun ownership. 29 year-old mother Veronica Rutledge had taken her son and three other children to the store that day to redeem gift cards they received for Christmas. Rutledge also had another Christmas gift with her that day--a customized purse given to her by her husband with a special pocket for…

  • Federal Legislation Restricting Online Ammo Sales Introduced

    Editor
    26 May 2015 | 11:02 am
    Earlier this month, U.S. Representative Bonnie Coleman (D-N.J.) introduced a new bill, H.R. 2283, that would restrict online ammo sales. Coleman’s legislation, dubbed the “Stop Online Ammunition Sales Act of 2015″, would not ban online sales outright, but it would impose many restrictions and set up a Federal tracking system to “watch” ammo buyers. While H.R. 2283 would not cap the quantity of ammo someone could purchase, the legislation would impose numerous barriers to sale. Most notably, buyers would have to supply identification in person before the product…

    This Texas Rifle Association (TXRA) Long Range Championship was a match to remember. Despite rain threats, organizers decided to hold the match. On Friday, against the advice of the weather forecasters, the team match was held. The weather held out long enough to complete the match but over four inches of rain fell Friday night. This made for an interesting weekend as competitors had to park at the 300-yard line and shooters and gear had to be trailered to the 1,000-yard line.

  • How to Use Mil-Dot Scope Reticles to Estimate Range

    Editor
    26 May 2015 | 7:55 am
    MIL-system scopes are popular with tactical shooters. One advantage of MIL scopes is that the mil-dot divisions in the reticle can be used to estimate range to a target. If you know the actual size of a target, you can calculate the distance to the target relatively easily with a mil-based ranging reticle. Watch this helpful NRA video to see how this is done: Milliradian Definition and Yardage Ranging Formula “MIL” or “Milrad” is short-hand for Milliradian, a unit of angular measurement. 1 Milradian equals roughly 3.9 inches at 100 yards or 39 inches at 1000 yards.

    AJCAs deaths from gunshot wounds rose steadily in Georgia and most other states, the District of Columbia crafted a narrative-busting success story. Once one of the nation’s most violent jurisdictions, the District reduced firearms deaths by more than half, even as its strict gun-control laws came under attack in Congress and the courts.An Atlanta Journal-Constitution analysis of government statistics, insurance industry data and reports from state vital-records agencies found that Washington cut gun deaths by 58 percent over the past decade.Besides D.C., only four states reported fewer gun…
  • Where Were the Good Guys With Guns at the Waco Gunfight

    Guns dot comSpend much time reading conversations about guns on the Internet, and you’ll come across a list of rules for a gunfight.  This is often tongue-in-cheek, though there’s a large measure of good advice contained therein.  But we need to add a Rule Zero:  If you know in advance that a gunfight will occur, don’t attend.Think about that for a minute.  One of the extant rules is that the sooner you finish a gunfight, the less shot you’ll get.  Doesn’t that suggest that if you don’t get involved in the first place, you have a good chance of not getting…
  • Use of the Word "Nigger" on Google as an Indication of Racism

     For the PLOS ONE paper, researchers looked at searches containing the N-word. People search frequently for it, roughly as often as searches for  "migraine(s)," "economist," "sweater," "Daily Show," and "Lakers." (The authors attempted to control for variants of the N-word not necessarily intended as pejoratives, excluding the "a" version of the word that analysis revealed was often used "in different contexts compared to searches of the term ending in '-er'.") It's also important to note that not all people searching for the N-word are motivated by racism, and that not all…
  • Supreme Court Hands Victory To Police Who Use Deadly Force

    25 May 2015 | 10:43 pm
    Think ProgressThe U.S. Supreme Court dealt at least a partial blow to police reform advocates Monday, in a ruling that held police officers could not be sued after all for firing gunshots at a severely mentally disabled woman who threatened violence. The decision is a loss for plaintiff Teresa Sheehan, who survived the deadly police force, and had won the right to sue in the lower courts. Studies in several cities have found that about half of police shooting victims are mentally ill, and that the mentally ill are disproportionate victims of excessive police force. Sheehan, like many of…

    The 1911 is the quintessential American handgun. The original design is over 100 years old and is still going strong. When John Moses Browning designed the 1911 there were no pistol lights or Picatinny rails however. If you wanted to light up what you were aiming at you held a flash light in the other hand. These days most handguns include tactical rails up front to mount lasers or pistol lights. What if you have an older styled 1911 that doesn’t have a rail? Well the folks at Recover Tactical have the solution with their CC3 1911 Grip & Rail System. Recover Tactical came up with…

    How do you choose which holster is right for you? If you listen to the internet, you might think that belt carry is the only sensible way to carry a gun. Any other way sucks on general principle, will get you killed, or result in Pluto plummeting from the sky into western Kansas. That’s probably OK though, considering Pluto isn’t a real planet anymore. I like to be more understanding. While I do believe belt carry is probably the best all-around option, assuming you can, it’s simply not feasible for all people all of the time. Women may need to wear a dress instead of pants. Men…

  • Ammo Test: Remington Ultimate Defense 9mm 124 Grain Full Size Handgun

    Tom McHale
    24 May 2015 | 4:43 pm
    Expansion results were impressive, to say the least. Remington has a (relatively) new line of self-defense ammo on the shelves called Ultimate Defense. You might recognize the projectile design as similar to the famous performer, Golden Saber. I’ve tested those before in a number of different calibers and results are almost always outstanding. I’ve been carrying the .45 ACP 185 grain +P Golden Saber load in my 1911 for a couple of years now. This projectile is a jacketed lead hollow point, complete with the distinctive gold-tone coloring. The 9mm Ultimate Defense ammo comes in two…

    This is the Next Level Training SIRT Practice Pistol. The red slide clearly indicates that it’s not a real gun. The very best way to improve your shooting is to not go shooting. That’s right. Stay home. Do not go to the range. Do not pass Go and do not spend $200 on ammo. Yet. Here’s why. Of all the things required to make an accurate shot—sight alignment, sight picture, trigger press and follow through—trigger press is the hardest to master and easiest to mess up. For a shot to go where you are aiming, you need to press the trigger until the gun fires, and you need to do it without…
  • Gun Review: The FN-15 DMR Designated Marksman Rifle

    Tom McHale
    22 May 2015 | 6:27 am
    Recently I got my hot little hands on one of the new FN America rifles for 2015. This one is the FN-15 DMR or Designated Marksman Rifle. It’s designed to shoot accurately. More specifically, it’s designed to shoot longer and heavier projectiles accurately. Does it? Let’s find out. What makes a DMR a DMR? If this rifle claims to be for a designated marksman, then it needs to have marksman-like features and do marksman-ey things exceptionally well. Let’s take a look at the specific characteristics first, then later we’ll get into more detail on accuracy performance.

    I have been interested in traditional slip joint knives for a while now. I am not alone. Many have come to enjoy the pocket friendly lines of a simple slip joint, and the thinly ground blades cut like nothing else. Some might find the absence of a lock unnerving, but in my experience most of the time a slip joint is more than enough knife for normal utility tasks. As I wandered down the slip joint rabbit hole I eventually came across the Northwoods Knives Indian River Jack. Here is a simple single blade pattern, but with an upgraded blade steel (in this case, CPM-154). No other bells or…

The Sebenza has long been considered a gold standard in high end production cutlery, and the thought that a competitor might knock the Sebenza off it’s podium has been a topic of conversation for some time. The Bradley Alias might be the most notable knife to get bandied about as a “Sebenza Killer,” and there have been several others over the years. But 25+ years later the Sebenza is still going strong. There seems no end in sight to its reign.

    Advertise here with BSAWe have discussed billet vs. forged before. We have built guns on a few forged lowers, and even some of the less expensive billet lowers.

It was a cold winter day when my San Tan Tactical STT-15 matched set entered my life. It sat in a box for weeks as I ordered and organized the parts required to start my build. Why did we pick San Tan? There is no shortage of quality made billet sets on the market. Some sets look nicer, and some are cheaper.

    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.

    The EM-2 story is one of political considerations taking precedence over military requirements, for although the EM-2 was an excellent weapon it was not accepted for service. The British army learned some hard lessons during World War II, one being that its time-honoured 0.303-in (7.7-mm ) cartridge was out-dated, was too powerful and used cordite, ...
