Andrew Scott Boguslawski Stopped For Speeding; Had 48 Bombs In Car

 

 

48 Bombs

 

 

” A man stopped for speeding in Ohio was charged with illegally making or possessing an explosive device after nearly 50 bombs and four guns were found in his vehicle.

  Andrew Scott Boguslawski, 43, was arrested late New Year’s Day on Interstate 70 west of Columbus. Investigators found two pistols, two rifles, 48 explosive devices and tools and materials to make additional explosives, according to The (London) Madison Press . Also inside was a remote detonating device, Assistant Madison County Prosecutor Nick Adkins said.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE COLT MARINE PISTOL

 

 

” A decision was made to adopt a new 9 mm Luger service pistol in 1985, and I have never met a true handgun man who was happy about that. Back when it was the Browning-designed gun, we were content with the armament. As for me, I drew an M1911A1 pistol from the old chest the first time my new company went to the field and turned it in when we came back. But one day in the summer of ’65, I drew it from the box, slipped it into my holster and left it there for more than a year in Vietnam. A year like that tumultuous one tends to grow a bond between man and tool.

  I do not mean to say that I was in any way different from hundreds of other Marines of my generation. When we went to war, the .45 was part of our gear; that is no longer true.”

 

 

” I understand the need for upgrading our equipment, but there was nothing wrong with the M1911 in the first place. That’s why so many of our troops—the ones closest to the pointy end of the spear—have been finding one means or another to lay hands on a .45 when they actually deploy to Southwest Asia. That unusual situation is no longer necessary. Colt’s Mfg. Co. now produces a special version of the M1911 pistol for the United States Marine Corps. And a smaller number of the special guns will be available for sale on the commercial market.”

PARA USA LTC TACTICAL

 

 

 

 

” The M1911 has been, and always will be, one of the world’s most celebrated firearms–so it’s really no surprise that countless individuals have tinkered with the iconic design since it first rolled off of the production line over a century ago. That said, it was a little over 20 years ago that the young Canadian Para-Ordnance company dared to release a double-stack 1911, significantly increasing the historic design’s capacity. The revolutionary move helped put Para on the map, and became something of a signature for its 1911s.

A few years ago the company set up a U.S. subsidiary in North Carolina—Para USA—and in early 2012 it became part of the Freedom Group. The firearm chosen as Gun of the Week, however, strays from both Para’s past and present. It’s a single-stack 1911 produced prior to the company’s purchase: the Para LTC Tactical.”

Why the Navy SEALS use the SIG Sauer P226 Pistol

 

 

Published on Aug 23, 2012

” The Dept. of Energy (DOE) manages our nation’s nuclear weapons program and armed security is vital to protecting these weapons and nuclear material. The Navy SEALS, the Texas Rangers and many federal officers use the Sig P226 for a very good reason. Accuracy and reliability.”

Park Police Lost Track Of Thousands Of Weapons, Inspector General’s Report Says

 

 

” The U.S. Park Police has lost track of thousands of handguns, rifles and machine guns in what a government watchdog agency concluded is the latest example of mismanagement on a police force trusted to protect millions of visitors to the city’s iconic monuments.

There is no indication that police guns got into the hands of criminals, but the Office of the Inspector General for the U.S. Department of the Interior warned that the Park Police might not know if they had. In a scathing report, the authors said there is “credible evidence of conditions that would allow for theft and misuse of firearms, and the ability to conceal the fact if weapons were missing.”

Commanders up to and including the chief of police have a lackadaisical attitude toward firearms management,” wrote Mary L. Kendall, the deputy inspector general. “Historical evidence indicates that the indifference is a product of years of inattention to administrative detail.”

Investigators took an unusually harsh tone in part because they said similar problems found in 2008 and 2009 were never fixed — a symptom of “the decade-long theme of inaction and indifference” of top Park Police managers. The Washington Post obtained an advance copy of the report.”

 

    These people ( the Feds ) are supposed to be the ones that we should trust with firearms while we lowly citizens are to give up our own ? You must be joking .

Fastest Hip Shooting This Side of the Mississisipi

Published on Jun 6, 2013

” Taran Butler & Bob Vogel face off in the Fastest Duel Shooting Steel! Now this is what I call a steel challenge!!! Taran Butler & Bob Vogel are both World Champion, Grand Master shooters. They have both been featured as experts on the History channel’s TV show “Top Shot.” Taran Butler specializes in 3-gun (pistol/rifle/shotgun) competitions. And Bob Vogel specializes in pistol. Because of their demanding schedules it’s rare that they ever get the chance to fool around at the range with someone of equal skill, so when they met up this day… like 2 bad asses rolling into the same small town, they obviously had to do what all men MUST do …THEY DUELED! All in good fun. :)”

Colorado Shooting Competition Canceled In Wake Of New Gun Control Laws

image

” GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. – Organizers of the Rocky Mountain Western States Regional IDPA Championship, initially scheduled to take place July 4-6 in Montrose, Colorado, have announced that the match is being canceled in the wake of Colorado’s recently passed gun control laws.

An estimated 300-plus shooters from the neighboring states and across the country were expected to attend the three-day competitive shooting event. This is the second shooting competition to abandon the state after a recent announcement by firearms maker Ruger that it was moving the 2013 Ruger Rimfire Challenge World Championship out of Colorado . “

The New SIG-Sauer X Series (PHOTOS+VIDEO)

“SIG SAUER (Germany) has launched a major new line of modular competition pistols. The line has 9 base models, 7 special/accessorized models, and 20 modular accessories. The new X-Series pistols are based on the SIG P226 X-Series and I believe supplants the old SIG P226 X line.

“The main line has three basic models. The X-Short model has a 4.4″ barrel, the X-Five has a 5″ barrel and the X-Six has a 6″ barrel. Each of these models is available in three different styles. The X-Line Classic style features ergonomic walnut grips. The X-Line Match style features black wooden grips, a sport magazine catch and a skeletonized hammer and trigger. The X-Line Super Match features G10 grips and a straight match trigger.”

Gun Review: Mauser P08: ‘Everything It’s Hyped To Be’ (VIDEO)

 

 

 

 

” It was one of the first semi-automatic pistols and the design was so good that it saw service through two World Wars. As a matter of fact, it continues to be used around the world today. Was it John M. Browning’s M1911? Nope — Georg J. Luger’s. We’re talking, of course, about the Mauser P08.

It’s a gun I knew and loved through the war movies I grew up watching. While I always rooted for the ‘good guys’ to defeat the Nazis, I always thought that the Germans had the cooler pistols. But it wasn’t until very recently that I had a chance to actually shoot a WWII-era version, a 4-inch barrel standard-army one made by Mauser in the early part of the war. And it was everything it’s hyped to be, so I was not disappointed.

Now, I won’t diss the 1911 because I love the design, and own several examples of it myself. Browning was a genius of the first water. But the P08 — commonly called the ‘Luger’ after its designer — is still a very cool design. I think that it is the articulated joint mechanism that operates it. It’s an obvious mechanical connection to an older time, like an evolutionary link that allows you to see something of how the thing works.”

 

 

Off-Grid Community ‘The Citadel Project’ Gets Thumbs Up To Manufacture Firearms

 

Citadel layout concept

 

 

 

” A company called III Arms has just received ATF approval to manufacture firearms. Setting up a gun manufacturer is just a small part of III Arms’ plan, which is to establish a completely self-sufficient community in the mountains of Idaho.

It will be called “The Citadel” and include a walled urban center—10 feet thick by 20 feet high and four miles long—surrounded by rural plots for farming. It is, to turn a phrase, a planned prepper community.

Despite being armed and armored, the Citadel isn’t being made to defend its people from military or government action, rather, it’s intended to be a safe haven for forward-thinkers to weather a social, economic or environmental collapse. It is at the leading edge of anti-establishment living, but it “is not designed to withstand any direct .mil or .gov attack. Nor is the Citadel, in any manner, attempting to provoke any government entity,” according to the project FAQ.

III Arms began taking pre-orders for AR-15 rifles and 1911 handguns last November anticipating the FFL. Both have pre-order prices of $1,550, reflecting the difficulty of making small batches of firearms and current market trends.”

This is a giant first step towards self-sufficiency for the proposed “off-grid” community which we have posted on before .

Champion Shooter Educates the Public on Semi-Automatic Firearms

 

 

” Here is champion shooter Jessie Duff explaining the differences between a hunting rifle and an AR-15 style rifle, along with some other guns. Jessie Duff, competition shooter, made an appearance on the Hannity Show last evening. She walked the audience through various semi-automatic firearms; rifles and handguns. It was quite educational for those who do not understand what is being discussed in the media and by politicians lately as a “military-style assault rifle”. Educate yourself, then share with others.

Point of fact: More kids died this week from the flu than from guns. More died in car accidents than from guns.

I like to shoot the AR-15. It is fun and there is no recoil, so you can shoot all day. The first time my husband let me shoot one, after I was done and talking to a friend I said I shot about 30 rounds. My husband laughed and said no, it was more like 90! When you educate yourself you will see what a bunch of media and political hype this whole gun issue is! The AR is the least of your worries, and if you wonder why a couple of mentally deranged crazies have used them, as the media is eager to report, it is because they are very popular. You can customize them in a lot of different ways to suit your personal choices and desires. The only way to eliminate this fear of firearms is to educate yourself, take some classes in firearms, and go out and enjoy a day on the shooting range. You will come away with a better understanding of what self-defense is all about and gain confidence in your ability to defend and protect yourself, your family and your property. Your initial fear will be replaced with self-assurance as you master the skills of target shooting.

Immersing yourself in the traditional gun culture (which is part of being an American) you will also come to understand the reason the founding fathers wrote the Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights in the Constitution, which states that “…the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” I interpret that to mean that the federal government is constitutionally prohibited from enacting ANY gun control laws that would infringe on our right to be armed to protect ourselves from threats or enemies, foreign or domestic. The laws in place that prohibit a known felon from owning or possessing a firearm are reasonable, and are to protect the law abiding populace. Background checks on those who want to purchase guns also make sense, as we have the technology to do so and we should prevent firearms from getting into the wrong hands. We are never going to eliminate all gun crime. On the other hand, statistics show that cities that have strict gun control laws and areas designated as “gun free zones” only allow for criminals to know that they can commit crimes with little or no resistance. We can be reasonable in effecting safer gun control measures, but harsher rules of what kind of weapons and how many rounds a magazine can hold, only harm law abiding citizens. Enforce the laws with strict consequences on those who commit violent crimes of all kinds, with any form of deadly weapon.

This knee jerk reaction of our politicians shows us that they never want to let a crisis go to waste. They want us disarmed. Ask yourself why? “

The Truth About assault Weapons

… NY NEWSPAPER PUBLISHES NAMES, ADDRESSES OF GUN PERMIT HOLDERS

 

 

 

 

” Today, the Journal News in upstate New York, owned by Gannett, published the names and addresses of all gun permit holders in the Westchester and Rockland county areas of New York. The Journal News said:

The map indicates the addresses of all pistol permit holders in Westchester and Rockland counties. Each dot represents an individual permit holder licensed to own a handgun — a pistol or revolver. The data does not include owners of long guns — rifles or shotguns — which can be purchased without a permit. Being included in this map does not mean the individual at a specific location owns a weapon, just that they are licensed to do so.

The newspaper didn’t even feel it necessary to publish a rationale for that violation of privacy – publishing the names and addresses of gun owners makes them more vulnerable to robbery when they aren’t at home, since criminals will know where the guns are.

 

They did, however, run a piece targeting gun owners as the root of all evil: “

 

 

 

Brownells Sells 3.5 years’ Worth Of Magazines In 72 Hours

 

 

 

 

 

” In the face of possible legislation to restrict and possibly ban firearms and magazines over a certain capacity, waves of panic buyers have stripped shelves to the paint, at both retail and online gun stores.

A combination of demand and gouging has caused prices for rifle magazines and rifles, parts and accessories to more than double, with some vendors selling goods at five times what the average rate was just a few weeks ago.

Many online companies are selling magazines faster than their systems can handle, accepting orders for stock they don’t have and running out of stock mid-transaction.

Brownells spokesman Jason Corpus had this to say.”

Gun Review: Beretta Nano

 

 

 

 

 

 ” My first impression of the Beretta BU9 Nano: awwww, it’s a baby Glock! Even the artful swage line running from the rear to the front of the Nano’s slide can’t hide the fact that the baby Beretta is an Austrian-style chunky monkey. At second glance, the Nano is a soap bar that’s been left in the shower for a couple of weeks. It’s small, slim, sleek and sexy; a snag-free concealable shooter with low-profile sights and beveled edges. There’s no slide stop to be seen; the reversible mag release is the pistol’s only protrusion. You could even say the striker-fired Nano looks like a Glock to be named later. Not that that’s a bad thing . . .

Like any little single stacker, the Beretta Nano challenges its owners to concentrate [even more carefully] on shot placement. The Nano packs a scant 6+1 rounds of your favorite flavor of nine mil. Fortunately, Beretta includes a spare magazine in the deal, encouraging Nano packers to double-up on ammo for any worst case scenario. Combat reload? Good luck with that.

Along with the Kahr CM9, the BU9 is +P rated. You can use hotter ammo, but you better hold on tight. The Nano is strictly a two-finger salute to Mr. Bad guy. The gun leaves smaller-handed women (like yours truly) struggling for pinky purchase. Depending on the size of your mitts, the Nano’s report may be best appreciated as the sound of one hand defending.”
