Also, aside from training, I knew Jeff Cooper was a blowhard, an attention whore, and had a poor track […]

    My Gun Culture - The lighter side of guns and shooting

    One things is for sure about the .357 Sig cartridge: velocity makes a big difference. It’s tough to find a .357 Sig load that doesn’t expand, even after encountering barriers. .357 Sig is my favorite pistol cartridge. I don’t really know why, I just think it’s cool. Well, seriously speaking, it is a screamer with great street performance and the bottleneck design helps not only velocity, but feeding reliability. Developed by a pas de deux featuring Sig Sauer and Federal Ammunition in 1994, it’s loosely based on a necked down .40 S&W cartridge – conceptually anyway.

    Why this rifle is still one of the most high prized American military rifles Gun writer and historian Bruce Canfield delves into the World War II's prized M1C Garand Sniper Rifle ... The M1C Garand Sniper Rifle When the U.S. Army sought a sniping rifle based on the M1 Garand at the end of World War II, the M1C, with its offset scope, was delivered in small numbers. Never the best solution, the M1C performed adequately in post-war service and remains one of the most highly prized American military rifles. At the time of the Pearl Harbor attack, the U.S. Army did not have a standardized sniper…

    Once again, Obama is the best gun salesman in the country. From the Standard Examiner: Thirty-six hours after the Obama administration banned importation of the classic brand of AK-47 assault rifles as part of sanctions against Russia, a Maryland dealer specializing in the weapon took stock of its inventory. There was nothing left. Laboring almost nonstop, workers at Atlantic Firearms in Bishopville, a Worcester County community on the Eastern Shore, had shipped hundreds of Russian-made AK-47s — an assault rifle prized by both consumers and despots — as buyers wiped out gun dealers’…

    Much ado about nothing. A cafe in liberal Winooski, VT removed a sidewalk sign advertising bacon after one professional victim complained about it. James Lileks nails it with hilarity: In this day and age, any public manifestation of an idea that differs with yours is a tort. You suspect everyone just wanted to avoid a lawsuit; it’s public terrain, and the Constitution is rather clear on the separation of Bacon and State. It’s a good thing the sign didn’t mention bagels, or someone would have complained because of Gaza. The narcissism of the constantly offended is automatic and fierce:…

    From Politico:The Senate barely does anything these days — except approve judges that could shape the law for a generation. Since Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) changed Senate rules in November to ease the approval of most of President Barack Obama’s nominees, Democrats have churned through confirmations of dozens of new judges — giving them lifetime appointments that will extend the administration’s influence for years to come. Over a roughly equivalent period during the 113th Congress, the Senate confirmed 36 district and circuit court judges before the rules change and 68…

    At least as applied to firearms carried in a vehicle in the parking lot of the licensed establishment: As written, the clear language of § 13:95.3 prohibits the possession of firearms in any parking lot of an establishment that sells alcohol. Thus, any law abiding citizen who exercises his or her right to keep or bear arms within the confines of his or her personal vehicle will violate § 13:95.3 anytime he or she, for example, stops to refuel a vehicle at a service station that sells alcohol, or stops to purchase groceries at a grocery store that sells alcohol.

    Professor Eugene Volokh looks at the low hanging fruit in terms of laws that are unconstitutional under the Second Amendment. I don’t have much to add, and agree many of the items he mentions ought to be up for consideration. I do want to comment on this, however: Bans on so-called assault weapons, for instance, strike me as unwise, but they don’t themselves practically interfere with self-defense in a substantial way: people remain free to have guns that are just as effective for self-defense. Isn’t this the same argument that the District of Columbia made in the Heller case?

    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…

    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…

    Smith & Wesson’s new plinker: The M&P22 Compact Yeah, I know, .22LR ammo is impossible to find. But the situation is getting better, and this fun new pistol comes with a starting supply of ammunition – 222 rounds of Winchester to be exact. Yep, it’s your birthday! An 87.5% scale version of the original, it’s just the right size for a .22LR pistol.

While Simply Rugged Holsters makes a number of different holster designs, the shiny one that diverted my attention away from the squirrel was the Simply Rugged Cuda model. Here’s why. To use the Cuda as an IWB, flip the straps over the front – that’s it. It’s all the rage out at Gunsite these days. But seriously, while that’s not the only reason Simply Rugged got my attention,…

    One things is for sure about the .357 Sig cartridge: velocity makes a big difference. It’s tough to find a .357 Sig load that doesn’t expand, even after encountering barriers. .357 Sig is my favorite pistol cartridge. I don’t really know why, I just think it’s cool. Well, seriously speaking, it is a screamer with great street performance and the bottleneck design helps not only velocity, but feeding reliability. Developed by a pas de deux featuring Sig Sauer and Federal Ammunition in 1994, it’s loosely based on a necked down .40 S&W cartridge – conceptually anyway.

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.

I recently took apart my Spyderco Sage 1. I have sung praises about the Sage 1 for years now, even going so far as to call it the “perfect EDC knife“.

Overlooked in all the hand wringing was a quote from Smith & Wesson’s CEO, James Debney who reported a hefty increase in handgun sales, buoyed by growing consumer interest in self-defense. 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. 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…

(Stephen Dethrage | AL.com)Many of the changes enacted affect the issuance of concealed carry permits, which are provided, at varying costs, by the sheriffs of Alabama’s 67 counties.Before the implementation of Alabama Act 2013-283 on Aug. 1, 2013, sheriffs had discretion over to whom they would issue permits and the wording of relevant law dictated that they “may” issue a permit to those they deemed fit to carry one.This…
  • California battle over concealed-weapon rights could be headed for Supreme Court

    24 Aug 2014 | 3:35 pm
    The Supreme Court has turned aside all Second Amendment challenges since a pair of landmark rulings in 2008 and 2009 confirmed the rights of individuals to keep and bear arms.But some believe a California case could make the high court return to the controversial area and determine whether gun ownership rights extend beyond the corners of one’s home.“If this goes to the Supreme Court, I’ll probably be right there on the doorsteps fighting and advocating,” Michelle Laxson proudly said. She and a handful of other San Diego County residents joined together in a lawsuit…

    In January, the Illinois State Police began accepting applications for concealed carry permits. As of July 28, the agency has issued 767 permits in La Salle County, according to official data.That is the most of all surrounding counties and is more than three times the number issued in the county between Jan. 5, when people could first start applying, and April 3.Livingston County has 269 permit holders.Though the numbers of approved applications spiked in the last couple of months, Jeremiah Brown, chief instructor at Final Defense, which offers concealed carry training classes in Ottawa,…
  • 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…

    1 Sep 2014 | 6:04 am
    I was recently invited to a test-fire session by Shotgun Blasters.  Yes, you really have to twist my arm to get me out to fire some wicked shotguns  There was, however, a bonus to this particular session in that I got to test fire an early version of a new build in progress – The Predator 2. If you scan down the sidebar of recent posts, you can see that the original Predator (Mossberg 500) is for sale.  It will be replaced by a BR-99 and here is a photo of the new firearm in action. That’s the Leupold 1-4X scope with Sabot ballistic reticle and a MKA 1919 10-rnd. mag.  Once…

  • Premier Gun Shows on Alcohol at Gun Shows

    I personally do not care for the idea of allowing alcohol sales at gun shows, especially since some of the language seems to be designed to place arbitrary restrictions on gun shows because of alcohol sales at the same complex or nearby buildings.  But then, no one really cares what I think.  The thoughts and opinions of promoters, however, are an important voice in the discussion.  I had a chance to talk briefly with Michelle at the recent Ft. Worth gun show and she and Tim were happy to release this statement on the topic. —– “Premier Gun Shows, LLC is a producer of gun…

  • Do You Need a Gun Light?

    25 Aug 2014 | 8:14 am
    It is so easy to get confused by all of the tinker toys and accessories you can purchase for your handgun. Tacti-Cool is all the rage; YouTube is packed with examples of firearms that fit the wildest ideals of tactical “effectiveness.” When it comes to home defense, how do you tell the experts from the salesmen? We don’t have the time or space here to address every accessory available for every handgun. But we can discuss one of the more popular combat handgun accessories on the market: gun-mounted flashlights. Most often mounted on a weapon’s accessory or…
  • Weird Gun of the Week: The Protector Palm Pistol

    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…
