    The Truth About Guns

    By MD Matt Emergency preparedness is big business. From doomsday preppers to the walking dead, surviving the dark times has become as much about entertainment as practicality. Surging public interest has driven an entire industry of zombie survival, tactical readiness, bug-out bags, and disaster thwarting products. Some are good, some questionable, and many downright ridiculous. Novice preppers looking for a preconfigured emergency solution are faced with a dizzying array of conflicting advertising.

    There’s a new product hitting the market by Scalarworks called the LDM Micro mount. The LDM brings a couple of useful features to the realm of mounting T1 Micro and compatible optics to 1913 rails. First, it’s super lightweight tipping the scales at a mere 1.38oz without an optic. Secondly, it quickly mounts to any 1913 type rail, even if it’s out of mil-spec, without tools. The thumbwheel works well and makes installation and removal simple to accomplish without tools. The clamp system is claimed to be “quick detach” in nature however I would classify it more…

  • Question of the Day: Which Gun(s) Are Likely to Become Future Collectibles?

    “I have acquired a few guns over the years,” TTAG reader RB admits. “None of them are investment pieces that will show any value in my lifetime. A Smith revolver has shown to hold it’s value – which is nice. However nothing else is likely to become an heirloom (outside of just one day being old in excellent condition but very common). I’m not expecting every gun to become a collectible, but I would like one. Long story short I want a Colt SAA. Colt’s website features them, has multiple models, and even a price sheet. So where are they?” Help a guy out…

    By Tom in Oregon There are lots reasons to go hunting. Eating fresh, clean, “free range” protein. The exercise you can get from the walks or hikes. Spending time with friends. As usual, the logistics of getting a dozen guys on the same schedule, having everyone taking time off work at the same time proved trying. Only one of our group is retired. One is semi-retired, the rest of us work full time jobs. Out of the 12-15 guys that participate in the yearly sojourn, only seven made it this year. Still, the camaraderie of this group is incredible . . . In a previous article about…

    Tom Corbett has consistently been one of the best governors in the country on gun control issues.  His signing the new law that ends the patchwork quilt of local gun regulations is just one example of that.  It is interesting that gun-control advocates who keep pushing state and Federal gun control laws support letting local gun control laws when it gets them what they want.  Unfortunately, Corbett has been unjustly beaten up over other issues, such as privatizing state liquor stores or introducing some competition to public schools.  Unions are taking a big stand against…

    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. I suppose some would argue that a quarantine violates the non-aggression principle. Others would probably argue that spreading a disease to someone is initiation of force, and so the state is justified in preventing it. But really, there’s only a risk…

  • Must / Should I carry a Copy of my ATF forms with the Firearm?

    David M. Goldman
    30 Oct 2014 | 9:11 am
    This is another one of those issues where the answer is not can you do but what should you do. Technically, you do not have to have a copy of your Form 1 or Form 4 for anyone other than the Attorney General, the ATF or an agent or investigator upon request. Some recent case law has stated that a police officer is not an investigator or agent or the ATF and as such has no right to request to see your ATF form. I cannot believe the amount of money and or the risk that the individual took when a copy of the document on your cell phone or in your gun bag would have avoided the issue. In addition,…

    I went into the confessional after years of being away from the Church. Inside I found a fully equipped bar with Guinness on tap. On one wall, there's a row of decanters with fine Irish whiskey and Waterford crystal glasses. On the other wall is a dazzling array of the finest cigars and chocolates . Then the priest comes in. I say to him, "Father, forgive me, for it's been a very long time since I've been to confession, but I must first admit that the confessional box is much more inviting than it used to be." He replies: "Get out, you moron you're on my side!"

    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…

    Can sustained rapid-fire shooting with no cool-down period wear out a quality barrel more quickly? The answer is “Yes” according to Forum member LCazador, who recently did an interesting comparison test with two .243 Win barrels. He started off with two, identical, match-grade HV taper stainless barrels. Both were NEW at the start of testing, and LCazador shot the same load through each: 95gr match bullets with 38 grains of Hodgdon Varget. After giving both barrels the same, gentle 20-round break-in, 300 rounds were then fired through each barrel — in very different ways.

  • Tech Tip: Don’t Store Brass and Ammo Near Ammonia Solvents

    Editor
    29 Oct 2014 | 3:24 am
    Chances are that many of you have packed away your ammo and shooting supplies for the winter. Maybe you put your brass in a storage bin that might also contain solvents, old rags, or used bore swabs. Well, if you use any ammonia-based solvents, we suggest you separate the brass and ammo and keep it away from potential ammonia vapors. This is because long-term exposure to ammonia fumes can cause cracks to form in your brass. This can lead to case ruptures and possible injury. This case-cracking phenomenon has been called Season Cracking, a form of stress-corrosion cracking of brass cartridge…

    Michael
    26 Oct 2014 | 11:58 am
    Lately Red Jacket Firearms has come under some serious bad press. First Will Hayden was accused of child molestation. Now Stephanie Hayden and her husband Kris Ford has been charged by the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office with Child Abuse. It has been reported that a leather belt was used on the child’s lower, right thigh. Reports say there was a large bruise on the child’s thigh and buttocks area. Since the issues started occurring, this goes back to the issues with the ATF, Joseph Meaux was put in-charge as CEO of Red Jacket Firearms. He released statements about the…

    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…

  • Judge bans concealed weapons at NC State Fair

    14 Oct 2014 | 11:23 am
    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. Troxler stated that the decision was based on a vague 2013 law prohibiting people form carrying guns at events where admission is charged. Grass Roots North Carolina opposed the…

    Joshua Nelson is a 2nd Lt. in the West Virginia Air National Guard and a licensed concealed firearm carrier. Earlier this year, he and his family were on a regular shopping trip to the Del Rio, Texas Walmart store to buy some items for an upcoming trip to the lake. All of the sudden, he heard a woman screaming, “Stop, put it down!” When he heard the woman in distress, he found her and saw what he described as a “pretty large man” holding a big fish fillet knife to her stomach. As licensed concealed carriers, Nelson says he and his wife carry everywhere they can while they are off the…

    After the success of their Maximum Expansion bullets (which provided a devastating wound channel with reduced risk of over penetration) and Controlled Fracturing bullets (one of the most unique projectiles ever designed), Lehigh Defense decided to focus on innovating and updating the design of one of the late Elmer Keith’s creations, the hard cast Semi-Wad Cutter. The original SWC Keith bullet filled a niche early on as it helped hunters face dangerous game with penetration measured in feet instead of inches. Unfortunately, the early copper-jacketed lead core hunting bullets that were in…

    Caleb Oosten

    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…

After writing over 1,000 gun-related articles, I still have a lot more to learn from the firearms experts in Hollywood. Just kidding! On the whole, Hollywood does a terrible job of representing proper gun function and use. I get it though, movies are supposed to be entertainment, not a gun history documentaries.

    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?

That might be the understatement of this year. The team I spoke with at Laser Ammo is knowledgeable and really interested in helping those in the gun community. These are the types of companies I love to work with, so it only made sense to give them a whirl. Well, after the first day I am hooked on the product. After the third day, I wondered how I had gone so long without this. After two weeks, I think they named the…

    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…

    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…

    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.

  • Sgt. Moose IWB Mag Carrier Review

    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…

    There’s a new product hitting the market by Scalarworks called the LDM Micro mount. The LDM brings a couple of useful features to the realm of mounting T1 Micro and compatible optics to 1913 rails. First, it’s super lightweight tipping the scales at a mere 1.38oz without an optic. Secondly, it quickly mounts to any 1913 type rail, even if it’s out of mil-spec, without tools. The thumbwheel works well and makes installation and removal simple to accomplish without tools. The clamp system is claimed to be “quick detach” in nature however I would classify it more…

  • 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. During the Galil’s hiatus from the U.S. market it has continued to evolve which has kept the weapon relevant on the global military market. The…

    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.
