Firearms are the great equalizer. A concealed handgun can mean the difference between life and death for someone.
One of the simplest, easiest, and cheapest ways to get a quick accuracy improvement. Mil Spec AR-15 triggers can be gritty, with a heavy and long pull. This makes precise shots and rapid more of a challenge. Upgrading a base trigger to a higher quality trigger provides a shorter trigger pull and trigger reset, a […]
The M1 Garand is one of the most iconic firearms of military history – arguably the most iconic, especially in American military history. If you’ve seen a World War II movie, you have most likely seen the M1 Garand Rifle Grenade used – but how much do you know about it?
“Gun control is not a solution to inner city violence. It’s a political placebo designed to give the appearance of sympathy, when in their hearts, there’s only apathy.” – Colion Noir Inner city violence is very much a culture issue created by many many factors – none of those culture issues being access to a […]
The Thompson Submachine Gun is such a classic firearm from World War II as well as the gangster era of prohibition where it was more commonly known as the “Tommy Gun.” Few firearms are this iconic.
Stovepipes are a brutal “failure to eject” (FTE) malfunction that put your handgun in a complete inoperable state. A stovepipe is when a spent casing gets caught in the action and the firearm’s action can no longer cycle. Fortunately, these types of jams can be easily cleared through proper technique.
A recent poll by Chapman University dove into the fears of Americans in 2016 and found some very interesting results. Most of these make perfect sense, some are a bit surprising. But what is possibly most interesting is how low mass shootings are on the list at number thirty, and how gun control is number five on the list.
The Mosin–Nagant is a bolt action rifle developed in the 1880s by the Imperial Russian Army and was the primary firearm used by Russian Soldiers during World War II. This firearm holds quite the place in military history and is still in military service by some nations. About 37,000,000 Mosin Nagants were manufactured and can […]
Smoke Alley, a smoke shop in Houston, Texas had an attempted robbery – emphasis on the “attempted.” The employee was armed with a reported CZ-75 SP-01 9mm pistol and sent the robber running very quickly – so quickly that the robber smashed straight through the storefront door on his way out and a bullet in his shoulder.
Colion Noir knocks it out of the park with his latest video concerning carrying a firearm for self defense. So many people believe carrying a firearm is a form of compensation, or because we’re paranoid of the world. That’s far from true. We simply realize that bad things happen and it is better to be prepared and nothing happen than bad things happen and have no way to handle it.
The saying goes, “When seconds matter, the police are only minutes away.” Maybe the saying should be, “When seconds matter, the police might not ever show up.” When bad things happen and the police are needed for assistance, there are many levels of human error and/or potential incompetence between you and the help you need.
As gun owners, sometimes we need to take a moment and just laugh at ourselves – especially given the current hectic political climate concerning the 2nd Amendment. Remember, guns are supposed to be fun!
22 Plinkster is an excellent YouTube channel devoted almost entirely to trick shots and .22 lr rifles and pistols. This latest trick shot of his is definitely the hardest one he’s done yet. Even though he’s split a playing card many times in many interesting and challenging ways, this takes it to a new level.
If you carry a gun in self defense, you MUST be able to keep your emotions in check and MUST stop shooting when the threat is neutralized. Continuing the engagement after the threat has been neutralized is an excellent way to turn lawful self defense into attempted murder or even murder.
Shooting offhand, kneeling, and prone are critical skills for anyone who wants to go shooting outside of a shooting range with a shooting bench.
There were 1,992,219 background checks in September 2016 passing through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, that is a 27% increase from September 2015’s gun sales record of 1,795,102.
I know we’re all surprised that Hillary’s anti-gun claims are incorrect and that her continued assault on the Second Amendment is not about public safety, but hey, here we are. She claims, “Right now we have too many military style weapons on the streets. In a lot of places our police are outgunned” and is […]
How would you feel if a government agent came over to your house and informed you, “You stole this car.” When asked what criteria they’re basing that statement on they reply, “That’s classified. But you stole this car, so we’re taking the car.” Outraged, you demand what evidence they have that you stole your own […]
One of the common anti-gun strategies is to claim “no one needs ___.” “No one needs an ‘assault rifle.’” “No one needs more than 10 rounds in a magazine.” First off, the Second Amendment is not about what someone “needs.” Second, we sure don’t want to need a semi automatic firearm or more than 10 […]
It is a well known fact that criminals prefer weak and distracted targets. Since thieves get to set the place and time of the ambush, they have the advantage. They can select an opportune location and wait for the perfect victim. It is important that we pay attention and avoid places that are ideal for […]
