    Owning a gun in Japan is a no-no. Even a plastic one: A Japanese court on Monday sentenced a man to two years in prison for making firearms with a 3D printer. The Yokohama District Court handed down the sentence to Yoshitomo Imura, a 28-year-old former employee of Shonan Institute of Technology who made a number of guns with a 3D printer in his home in Kawasaki outside Tokyo last year. Imura was arrested in May on a charge of illegal weapons possession in what media reports described as Japan’s first such case involving 3D-printed firearms. “This has shown that anyone can…

    Fury is both the name of the movie and an M4 Sherman tank that’s home to a dysfunctional family of US Army soldiers. To set the stage, it’s April of 1945 – the last month of the War in Europe — and Hitler’s armies have been shattered on the Western front. The Nazis have been reduced to using children and women to defend their murderous regime. The Third Reich is being (literally) crushed under the treads of American tanks. Resistance, especially from the SS and the Hitler Youth, is fanatical as the Nazis defend their own land. And here’s the first of several spoilers: the…

    The Truth About Guns

  • Self-Defense Tip: Don’t Be A Victim

    Robert Farago
    22 Oct 2014 | 6:00 pm
    There are times when there’s nothing you can do to defend yourself against a criminal attack. Cab drivers who find themselves with a gun against their neck are well advised to comply with the robber’s demands. By the same token, if you’re alone in a pizza parlor and two armed men storm in, point guns at you and demand money, what are you going to do? Give them the money – and hope they leave without physically assaulting you. But at no point should you “give up.” At every point you should be looking for an opportunity to escape, evade and/or attack. You…

    Technically, Augie’s Bourbon Street Cafe’s failure to detect Jasmine N. Jones’s handgun didn’t “lead” to LaKisha Neal’s murder. The Minneapolis gentlemen’s venue is no more responsible for the fatal headshot than the Bank of the West in Stockton, CA is responsible for the hail of police bullets that claimed the life of a hostage. But the fact that the club’s security personnel failed to detect Ms. Jones firearm reveals a simple inescapable fact: political correctness kills. For proof we turn to Augie’s owner Brian “My Name…
  • U.S. to Send $600m Worth of Tank Ammo to Iraq

    Robert Farago
    22 Oct 2014 | 3:00 pm
    The U.S. recently air-dropped arms and ammo to Kurdish forces fighting ISIS in Kobane, Syria. This despite/because of the Turkish government’s refusal to allow land deliveries of arms to the Syrian Kurds, linked as they are with Turkey’s outlawed rebel Kurdistan Workers’ Party. The air-drop riled the Turks to the point where U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry had to reassure Turkey that it was a one-off. While he was at it, Barack’s billionaire majordomo had to admit to the media that some of those arms will end up in the hands of people who want to see the U.S.

It get worse. “Authorities say a 16-year-old boy has been killed after a rifle went off in a pickup truck [not shown] where he was a passenger.” Regular readers of this series will know our main point: guns don’t “go off.” They discharge negligently.

On Friday, it was reported forensics showed Brown’s blood was on both the inside of police officer Darren Wilson’s car as well as Wilson’s gun. The gun had also been fired twice within the car. This evidence hardly squares with early witness accounts that Brown was shot with his hands in the air while he was surrendering.With forensic evidence finally coming in, Officer Wilson’s shooting Brown is looking as if it were justifiable self-defense.

    Anti-Gun Senator Was Just Arrested in Ferguson While Carrying a 9mm Handgun Intoxicated by Benjamin Austin A Democrat state Senator and strong anti-gun advocate was arrested in Ferguson on Monday night — while carrying a 9mm handgun and drunk. Senator Jamilah Nasheed has sponsored several control bills in Missouri… but apparently, she believes that those laws are for other people, not her. According to police, officers detected a strong smell of intoxicants from the liberal lawmaker, who was on the streets of Ferguson.

    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."

    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." 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…

It was National Rifle Association (NRA) CEO Wayne LaPierre who famously intoned that "the guys with the guns make the rules" during the 2009 Conservative Political Action Conference. I don't think I had ever fully understood the sheer arrogance and hypocrisy behind this belief, however, until pro-gun activists brought it into sharp relief for me recently.

Unfortunately, the type of plane and navigation system meant that the submarine based raids were more a morale booster for the Japanese than a significant action.

    Andrew Branca posted this at Legal Insurrection. It is an important issue, and one that is not addressed adequately in the training that a person receives when they get their gun permit. It is also not a scenario that most people prepare themselves for, and that lack of preparation can cause hesitation or indecision at […]

    My non-membership in the cult of Jeff Cooper is well-documented. While I credit Cooper for his early contributions to training, his lack of real-world experience made me hesitant to take his endless advice at face value. Also, aside from training, I knew Jeff Cooper was a blowhard, an attention whore, and had a poor track […]

  • The Future of Optics: TrackingPoint Xact

    Aaron
    20 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    Cutting-edge optics manufacturer TrackingPoint turned heads this year at SHOT Show, debuting their Xact system. Xact is a mishmash of technology that guarantees a hit on your target, every time you pull the trigger, out to 1,200 yards. In large part the system has deserved the positive attention, since it seems to work well out of the box, turning novice shooters into deadeye snipers making extremely long range shots. The Xact system consists of a few different core parts, all packaged together into one oversized scope. There is a digital screen that shows the shooter an adjusted view of the…

    On Monday a Judge ruled that concealed handguns will not be allowed at the North Carolina state fair. Gun rights advised asked for the ban to be overturned more than a week ago. Superior Court Judge Donald Stephens ruled “it would be unwise and imprudent to allow firearms into the State Fair.” The original decision for the concealed weapons ban came from Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler.

    Massad Ayoob has some great thoughts worth sharing… We live in a world where the entertainment media and the news media alike have demonized the firearm as a frightening, high-efficiency killing machine. A myth has arisen that I call “hierarchy of lethality.” It is the false belief that the firearm represents the nuclear level of hand-held weaponry, and is somehow more lethal than other deadly weapons. The general public sees the knife as something less: after all, they’ll open their mail in the morning with something very much like your opponent’s knife, and will slice the…

    The term “shotgunning a beer” takes on a whole new meaning with the Can Cannon from X Products. In the “why the heck not” category is the new Can Cannon from X Products. Known for their rock solid drum magazines for modern sporting rifle designs, the X Products folks got a wild hair to bring something just plain fun to market. The Can Cannon is a complete upper assembly with a soda can diameter barrel. The upper unit contains a custom chamber, barrel extension and “barrel” with gas ports. The upper uses .223 blanks to create adequate gas pressure to launch the soda can…

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…

    There are times when there’s nothing you can do to defend yourself against a criminal attack. Cab drivers who find themselves with a gun against their neck are well advised to comply with the robber’s demands. By the same token, if you’re alone in a pizza parlor and two armed men storm in, point guns at you and demand money, what are you going to do? Give them the money – and hope they leave without physically assaulting you. But at no point should you “give up.” At every point you should be looking for an opportunity to escape, evade and/or attack. You…

This despite/because of the Turkish government’s refusal to allow land deliveries of arms to the Syrian Kurds, linked as they are with Turkey’s outlawed rebel Kurdistan Workers’ Party. The air-drop riled the Turks to the point where U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry had to reassure Turkey that it was a one-off. While he was at it, Barack’s billionaire majordomo had to admit to the media that some of those arms will end up in the hands of people who want to see the U.S.

The Nazis have been reduced to using children and women to defend their murderous regime. The Third Reich is being (literally) crushed under the treads of American tanks. Resistance, especially from the SS and the Hitler Youth, is fanatical as the Nazis defend their own land. And here’s the first of several spoilers: the…

    If you haven’t seen or heard about the Kel-Tec KSG, it is a bullpup 12 gauge shotgun with 2 magazine tubes and one barrel.   Introduction This shotgun is not your standard old faithful shotgun. It is not the shotgun that our grandfathers have been using since they were young pups. This is Kel-Tec’s entry into the modern day shotgun class. From first glance, you can see this shotgun is different. The KSG doesn’t have the look of that old American classic. This shotgun is part of the future of shotguns in both the LE/military market as well as the civilian market.

    In the past I have compared knife collecting to mountain climbing.

    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?

But still, like a moth to flame I convince myself that this time things will be different as I hit the “buy” button on yet another Emerson.

Unfortunately for the civilian market the gun as it was originally designed would be classified as an NFA Short Barreled Rifle.

    Advertise here with BSA A 400-pound monument made from scrapped ammunition casings, which traces its origins back to 1994, is a step closer to finding a permanent home on Michigan’s state Capitol grounds. The byproduct of a campaign rally by a candidate for the U.S. Senate nearly two decades ago, the monument was crafted from empty brass donated by thousands of gun owners. The six-foot-wide plaque is engraved with the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution as well as Article I, Sec. 6 of the Michigan Constitution, both of which detail the right to keep and bear arms. Now legislation has…
  • Super Dynamic Combat (SD-C) Trigger Review

    248 Shooter
    3 Oct 2014 | 8:11 am
    Advertise here with BSAWe have reviewed some of the ALG Defense products in the past like the rails and ACT trigger they make. 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…

  • 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…

    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),…

    Reliable function and quality components are, arguably, the most important elements to consider when evaluating a firearm. That aside, there’s something special about a gun that does more than run right. It’s entirely subjective, but for firearms enthusiasts like me, there is an undeniable appeal in a firearm with “cool factor.” The Springfield Armory SOCOM II .308 rifle has it. History Adopted for the civilian market, Springfield Armory first released the M1A series of rifles in the mid seventies. The design was a semi-auto only variant of the successful .308 select fire…
