    The Truth About Guns

    I’m inherently lazy when it comes to carrying. Yes, I pack daily. In some way, shape or form. But I rarely pocket an extra magazine or stripper clip (let alone a speed loader). It’s less a case of complacent slothfulness than not wanting to be weighed down by still more chazerai rattling around in my pockets. But when I’m not toting my 642 or the Bodyguard wheelgun I’m trying out, it’s usually a GLOCK 42 that’s nestled between my waistband and my Calvins. Which means, as Kevin Michalowski points out above, should my 42 prove to be less than Perfection and I…

Powers knows that the founders didn’t enact the Second Amendment to protect hunters from starvation. Or target shooters from boredom. Or even law-abiding citizens from criminal predation. She knows that the 2A is Americans’ bulwark against government tyranny. She just finds it, well, amazing! Amazing that . . . anyone would hold that view today. So when U.S.

    This is a bit off topic, but news is slow on the gun front today. I ran out of energy for arguing over what libertarianism is and isn’t in my late 30s, but for the sake of a conversation starter, I thought I ask the question of whether a mandatory quarantine is compatible with libertarian principles, however you want to define them.

    One week ago, in an op-ed for the far right wing website World Net Daily, National Rifle Association (NRA) Board Member Ted Nugent commented on the violence that has made national headlines in Ferguson, Missouri, and stated, "The overwhelming majority of violent crime across America is conducted by young, black males who, sadly, are on the self-inflicted expressway to prison or an early grave-or more often than not, both."

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…

The dupe of statesmen and the tool of conquerors. PATRIOTISM, n.Combustible rubbish ready to the torch of any one ambitious to illuminate his name.

The same group supported enormously restrictive regulation of fully-automatic firearms, short-barreled rifles and shotguns, and even a safety device (suppressors, routinely, if inaccurately, referred to as "silencers"). The Gun Control Act of 1968 passed with this group's blessing.Still, by virtue of fighting against bans of…

    The partially autonomously controlled missiles, or so-called “killer robots”, will be used for airborne strikes for its new fighter jets and have the ability to identify targets and make decisions to kill without human interference. The Norwegian Peace League, for one, believe the technology may violate international law, wanting a parliamentary debate about the move. Alexander Harang of the Norwegian Peace League (Norges Fredslag) demands discussion . He is also a member for the international “Campaign to stop killer robots”.

    RAZAR or Rapid Adaptive Zoom for Assault Rifles (no bonus points for the name) is a development coming out of the Sandia National Laboratories. It is a magnifying device that takes advantage of a flexible lens that is manipulated to change the focal point; unlike current optics that move two lens in a linear fashion. The new technology attempts to focus lenses like the human eye does. This development allows for rapid and clear magnification changes without ever having to touch the optic. The system uses a tape-switch device to control the zoom. The RAZAR is powered by two AA batteries and…

This particular one holds ten scope ring halves in exactly perfect orientation so that each can be shaped, finished, drilled and threaded in a single operation in one of Warne’s milling machines.

You see, I had the opportunity to build my very own Crimson Trace LG-401G Lasergrips for a 1911 pistol. I was visiting the Crimson Trace factory in Wilsonville, Oregon, just south of Portland, and those crazy folks seemed to believe that even a klutz like me could make something high tech like a four milliwatt green instinctive activation pistol laser.

Like it’s predecessor, the BenchLoader, it’s designed to instantly load up from 1 to 30 rounds in an AR rifle magazine. The original BenchLoader offered similar performance but was larger, heavier and due to the design, only accepted certain types of standard AR magazines. The new Range BenchLoader does not fully contain the magazine; it attaches to the open of of the magazine using the magazine catch cutout. This means the new Range…

    How do you improve on perfection? That may have been a question asked by the engineers at Chris Reeve when they approached the Sebenza 25. I wasn’t in the room, so I really have no idea. The Sebenza has received incremental improvements over the years, but for it’s 25th anniversary CRK really wanted to up the ante, or at least do something different from the tried and true Sebenza 21. The Sebenza 25 is that knife.The 25 is beefier and has more attitude than the 21, but there is still no mistaking it for a Sebenza. Is the 25 a worthy buy? Should you get it instead of a Sebenza 21?

You can read all about our initial impressions and the features that make it different in our original post. Unfortunately for the civilian market the gun as it was originally designed would be classified as an NFA Short Barreled Rifle.

Their parent company Geissele was kind enough to send us out a Super Dynamic Combat Trigger commonly referred to as the SD-C Trigger. The SDC is a completely flat trigger, which creates a feel that is different from a conventional trigger. The pull weight of a curved trigger and a flat trigger can be set to the same weight, but due to leverage the flat will “feel” lighter. There is also a perceived ability to shoot straighter dues to the angle of pull using the…

    Skyler DorianSaturday, October 25, 2014 Bullet jewelry is everywhere.  On celebrities, teens, moms, dads, sportsmen.  You don’t have to be a shooting expert, gun toting woman or conceal carry permit holder to appreciate the beauty of a piece of gun or bullet jewelry.  Anyone can wear a bullet-theme piece of jewelry which may be why it has risen so quickly in popularity. Earrings are popular pieces made from bullet casings.  Combined with faux or real gems (Swarovski Crystals are popular additions), bullet casings are the perfect size for earrings.  They can be worn with a casual look,…

  • Best Concealed Carry Purse

    admin
    19 Oct 2014 | 2:13 pm
    Sunday, October 19, 2014 What is the best concealed carry purse?  As owner of www.GunHandbags.com, I get asked this all the time.  Of course, “best” is completely subjective.  So rather than try to give a generic answer, I try to dig deeper. What are you looking for in a concealed carry purse?  What would a best concealed carry purse look like to you?  Would it be made of leather, nylon, fabric or something else?  Do you want the security of a cross body or do you like a tote?  Do you want to have a concealed carry purse that locks, like many women with children do?  How big is…

  • 5 questions answered on Alabama’s concealed-carry gun law

    concealcarry
    18 Oct 2014 | 9:12 am
    Q. What does a pistol permit allow me to do?A. Having a permit allows a gun user to carry concealed handguns in public. State Sen. Scott Beason, a Gardendale Republican who sponsored the legislation, said the permits harken to the days when citizens – especially in the frontier – commonly carried guns openly.In those days, Beason said, concealing a gun was considered underhanded. In order to have the right to have a concealed gun, the law required local law enforcement authorities to certify that the gun owner was of good character.Under Alabama law, pistol permit holders can have…

  • Alien Gear introduces new Clock Tuck 2.0 concealed carry holster

    10 Oct 2014 | 9:11 am
    Last month, I wrote a review of Alien Gear’s unique Clock Tuck holster and unequivocally declared it to be the finest concealed carry IWB holster on the market, bar none. Now in mid-August, I feel the need to recant those words. Thanks to the innovative and forward thinking designers at Alien Gear’s Hayden, Idaho, facility, its worthy successor, the Clock Tuck 2.0, now deserves that honor and distinction.One of the primary design criteria for the new Clock Tuck 2.0 was enhanced flexibility. As wonderful as quality leather may be, it still requires a considerable break-in period before it…

  • Sgt. Moose IWB Mag Carrier Review

    algorithmist
    22 Oct 2014 | 5:22 am
    This is a brief review of the IWB mag carriers from Sgt. Moose Custom Holsters.  I purchased two of the double-stack, 10mm/.45 carriers at an Irving Gun Show this summer.  It’s taken several months to put the carriers through a combination of day-to-day carry, long road trips, and intense training sessions in both hot and recently cool weather. Here is a photo of one of the carriers next to a popular double-mag pouch, the Bianchi Patrol-Tek.  All mags are Glock 20, 15-rnd. The Sgt. Moose carrier exposes slightly more of the mag, which makes it easier for me to get a quick indexing of…

    13 Oct 2014 | 7:23 am
    I’ve owned a Sig 716 Patrol for over a year, now, so I thought it would be a good time to post an update on my experiences with this platform.  The 716 has been used largely for .308 ammo tests from 100 yards with only modest firing from an unsupported (other than sling) position inside 50 yards.  This fits in my general sphere of use cases for the rifle as a medium-distance platform. The configuration remains unchanged from my previous reviews, although I plan to upgrade the bipod in the near future. The rifle is heavy, even if you remove all the goodies, so it comes as no surprise…

  • The new IWI Galil ACE

    MAC
    25 Oct 2014 | 11:48 am
    For many American shooters, the Israeli Galil rifle is something of an icon. It was originally manufactured and exported by Israel Military Industries (IMI) in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s. Around 1993 the rifle stopped coming into the country and shooters were left clamoring for originals that brought $4k or more on the used market or buying clones manufactured on U.S. made receivers using old military surplus parts kits. While the Galil been absent from the U.S. market it has continued to evolve which has kept the weapon relevant on the global military market. The Galil…

    Like most of America, I enjoy going to the movies for a break from reality.  Like most of us, I enjoy a good action movie.  As a cop, who is well aware of the gritty reality faced by a large number of Americans who are woefully under-protected by their overburdened local law enforcement, I am dismayed by the gun control propaganda that escapes the lips of some of the stars of the very action movies I so enjoy watching.  In fact, some of the stars, such as Sylvester Stallone or Arnold Schwarzenegger, are so utterly hypocritical that I refuse to pay money to see any more of their movies.

    A while back, I wrote a two part review of the StealthGear Onyx IWB holster in which I sung its praises.  I wear that holster about 2/3 of the year and only use a different holster in the colder, darker months of the year because I prefer to have my weapon light on the gun when it is dark out.  The Onyx is going strong, and I have it for my two primary carry guns, a Glock 19 and my Springfield XDs.  To say I like that holster is an understatement. I recently got the opportunity to try out StealthGear’s IWB Mag Carriers.  I was a bit hesitant at first because while I have always…

    Why is it that the liberals and anti-gunners are so focused on race all the time?  It was just over a year ago that some buffoon working at Bloomberg.com, Francis Wilkinson, went off on a similar wild tangent based solely on his observations of what people looked like in the three gun magazines he bought at a news stand.  Those observations of his were what his entire article, “Guns are for White People”, was based on.  I later countered his racist observations when I wrote a response, in which I pointed out all the non-white people responsible for producing just one of those…

    It has happened yet again in St. Louis, MO.  No, I’m not talking about the white police officer shooting a young black man; I’m talking about the completely irresponsible reporting by the media and others that is leading to more civil unrest, racial tension, hatred and potentially more rioting. What we know about the event, from what has been released by the police, is that an officer was working an off-duty job at a location where he observed three black males who ran when he tried to contact them.  One of them was holding his pants as he ran, indicating to the officer (rightfully so),…
