” Great Balls of Fire! New Video using the Slide Fire Stock on a .22lr S&W M&P15/22 testing the Piney Mountain Rimfire Tracer Ammo. We also added a powerful Green Laser to add weight. (Plus, bright lasers are kinda fun on something like this.) This isn’t anything technical, just some fun footage very early in the testing of a new Rifle/Ammo/Accessory combo. “

If They Come To Confiscate Your Guns You Have to Know What to Expect

 

 

 

” Back in January I wrote an article entitled If They Come for Your Guns, Do You Have a Responsibility to Fight? The article went on to be read by a lot of people. However…

  I have learned a thing or two about a thing or two since then. I wrote that article when I was just starting to wake up to what was going on around me. And to be quite blunt, if you think you are going to have time to reach for your gun during a full-scale confiscation, you may be sadly mistaken. Chances are you won’t even get to your guns before a red beam is dancing between your eyebrows.”

 

 

 

 

”  We have to know what to expect. This is not about ego. This is about survival and living to fight another day. So sure, I can bow out my chest and talk about how I’m going to die a glorious death with hot smoldering brass up to my knees. I can talk about how they will pry my gun from my cold dead hands. The truth is that neither is likely to happen.

  To understand the likely scenario we need to look at a situation in which full-scale gun confiscation was implemented and develop our strategy from there. Let’s talk about Hurricane Katrina.”

 

 

 

 

” Let’s get all thoughts of fantasy out of our head. We can’t assume that we will see them coming. We can’t expect a phone call from Bob who lives three blocks away. We can’t expect anything in this situation except to be surprised. Please listen to this account of someone who was there for the Katrina gun confiscation. This stuff happens with the precision of our military. This is not going to be Andy and Barney knocking on your door.”

 

   This article is a nice primer on hiding your guns from the State and includes the following bits of helpful tips on long term storage of firearms …

 

Three ways to prep your gun for hiding

   In addition to the videos above that provide tips on long-term firearm storage we’ve included the video below that provides tips for the storage of ammunition , because what is a gun without ammo but a very expensive club .

” This video was taken at Rifles Only in Kingsville Texas. This was a Vendor day during the 2011 Shooters bash. Barrett sponsored this shoot, and a Helicopter ride, where I shot .22 tracers at night out of a moving heli!

Thanks to Rifles Only, Barrett, and all of the awesome sponsors that put this match together. I had the time of my life.”

Glock 30S Compact 45 ACP Semi-Automatic Pistol

 

 

 

 

” The latest variation of the Glock design is featured here: the 30S. To create the 30S, what Glock did was take their Model 30SF (Short Frame) and put a Model 36 slide on top. This is an oversimplification, but that is pretty much the result. The slide measures only one inch in thickness, which is about one-eighth of an inch thinner (.12 inch to be exact) than the slide on the Models 21 and 30. This does not seem like a lot, but on a carry gun, it makes a big difference. The 30S is also quite a bit lighter in weight than the Model 30, by over three ounces. Making the 30S resulted in a compact 45 ACP double-stack (like the Model 30) with a slide that is no wider than a Model 19, 23, or 36, and is much better for a concealed-carry gun than are the Models 30, 30SF, and 30 Gen4 pistols.

In addition, I am glad that Glock used the SF style of frame, as it fits my hand much better, even though I wear an extra-large size glove. I really like the feel of this Model 30S pistol. It holds ten rounds in the magazine, for a total loaded capacity of eleven, in a package that is very close to the size of a Model 19 9mm. I like it. The magazines supplied with this 30S are the extended style, which gives purchase to the little finger, instead of leaving it hanging off the bottom. The 30S can also use Model 30 and Model 21 magazines. The 30S uses a captured multi-spring system, similar to the spring setup on the Gen4 pistols. The barrel is slightly slimmer than the Model 30 barrel, and the two will not interchange.”

The 7 Most Ridiculously Advanced Machines Built Out of LEGOs

 

 

” Think back on the coolest LEGO creation you ever made when you were a kid. Maybe it was a tower, or a colorful White House, or a robot that broke the second you tried to make it move. If you were lucky, you got your hands on a LEGO Star Wars kit so you could make a decent looking TIE fighter or something. Our point is, whatever your proudest LEGO creation was, it’s going to look like a crap mountain compared to …”

Tsarnaev Brothers Killed MIT Officer Because They Needed A Gun

 

 

“The original question is they walked up to that car and appeared they shot the officer in the head unprovoked, that it was an assassination. But why? How did that fit into their plan? The operating theory now in the investigation is they were short one gun. The older brother had a gun. They wanted to get a gun for the younger brother and the fastest and most efficient way they could think of doing it was a surprise attack on a cop, to take his weapon and go. Officer Collier had a locking holster, it’s like a three-way lock. If you don’t know how to remove the gun, you’re not going to get it out. There was apparently an attempt to yank it and they couldn’t get it and left. “

What You Don’t Know About the Agenda-Driven Journalists in Your Neighborhood

 

Gannett Gracia Martore

 

” It’s not the first time the Journal News had published names of gun permit holders. They also did so in 2006. A handful of other papers around the country have done this in recent years, as well. News network CNN interviewed The Poynter Institute, a school for journalists, about the story.

“Publishing gun owners’ names makes them targets for theft or public ridicule. It is journalistic arrogance to abuse public record privilege, just as it is to air 911 calls for no reason or to publish the home addresses of police or judges without cause,” Al Tompkins, a Poynter senior faculty member, said in a statement. “Unwarranted publishing of the names of permitted owners just encourages gun owners to skip the permitting.”

A statement was made on the Journal News’ Facebook page from Publisher Janet Hasson defending the action.

Hasson said, “Frequently, the work of journalists is not popular. One of our roles is to report publicly available information on timely issues, even when unpopular. We knew publication of the database (as well as the accompanying article providing context) would be controversial, but we felt sharing information about gun permits in our area was important in the aftermath of the Newtown shootings.” ”

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.”


Woman Turns In Historic Nazi Assault Rifle At Conn. Gun Buy-Back

 

Most gun collectors would love to have one of these in their safe , we know we would .

 

 

 

 

 

 ” When police officers announced this year’s gun buy-back program would allow residents to exchange their guns for Wal-Mart gift certificates, they never expected a woman possessing a World War II-era Nazi Assault Rifle to take the bait.

But that’s exactly what happened in Hartford, Conn. over the weekend.

“It’s like finding the Babe Ruth of baseball cards. The rarity, it was made for such a very short period,” Officer John Cavanna, one of the two officers who discovered the gun, told ABC News. “

Grendel-Based 6mmAR for AR15s

 

whittallriflex222

 

 

 ” The classic AR-15 “Black Rifle” remains extremely popular among High Power competitors. But its standard .223 chambering leaves much to be desired as a long-range round. Robert Whitley has come up with a great new chambering for the AR-15 that offers dramatically better long-range performance in the wind. Robert’s cartridge, dubbed the “6mmAR”, is basically a necked-down 6.5 Grendel. But Robert has done more than just tweak the Grendel. He’s put together a complete package that includes complete uppers, custom dies, and reliable magazines. Put that all together with a .556 BC bullet running 2750 fps, and you have a winning combination.”

 

Crime Victims Shoot Robbers In Separate Incidents

 

 

 

One more cretin has left the gene pool …

 

” “It was just your normal robbery, ‘give me your money,’” said Sgt. Burt Roberts.

At least until the suspect wound up behind the counter in a confrontation with the men, who pulled out their own guns: a 40-caliber handgun and a shotgun.

They fired “multiple shots” at the suspect during the course of the robbery, Roberts said.

“We’ve been robbed!” one of the workers frantically yelled to a 911 dispatcher, according to a recording of the call. “I’m holding a gun to his head! We shot him. He pulled a gun on us and started shooting, so we shot him….He came at me with the gun. He said ‘go behind the counter and get me the money.’” ”

 

 

Meanwhile , down the road apiece …

 

 

” The man told police he fired several gunshots in self-defense at two juveniles and a man trying to rob him on the street.

The suspects were taken to University Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, treated and released, police said. “

 

 

  The fact that citizens have a right , nay a responsibility , to protect themselves and those around them is becoming more and more apparent to every right-thinking citizen . 

 

 

 ” The most recent U.S. Department of Justice study available, from 1994, found that 1.5 million people use firearms to defend themselves against crimes annually.

That includes victims firing shots and those who simply displayed their weapons to their assailants, who fled, Pierce said.

“There is an increase in people who are becoming aware of their own responsibility for personal protection and the fact that the police simply cannot be there the moment that crime occurs,” Pierce said. “They would if they could, but it’s simple physics. They are minutes away and seconds count.

“Anytime a robber or a perpetrator fires first, you’ve already been presented with deadly force. There is no choice. Law enforcement simply tells people to give the robbers what they want and to let them go, but when you have a robber who is determined not to leave any witnesses behind and initiates deadly force, that advice can only get you killed.” “

 

Gun Gifts for Girlie Girls

 

 

 

 ” As long as there have been guns, there have been women shooters.  And they’ve made do with the guns and gear designed for men.  And why not?  It works.  And I’m the first to acknowledge that some women shooters have no desire, whatsoever, to carry a concealed handgun in a pink holster, or wear jewelry made from bullet casings.  But some do, and the list that follows is for them.

All of these ideas com from GunGoddess.com, a retail site that might make the shopping easier.  This list is a bit random, and designed more to show the variety of what is available. ”

Armed Citizen in TX Stops Shooting Spree and Saves

Cop by Making 150+ Yard Shot With a Pistol

 

 

 

 

” This is a pretty amazing story. An armed private citizen assisted a police officer who was pinned down by the gunfire of a madman who had just killed 3 people and could have killed many more. Amazingly the concerned citizen, Vic Stacy, did so by taking a shot of 150+ yards using only a pistol. “

  ”  If you had to choose one gun—and only one gun—to get you through a disaster (be it traditional or zombie-related), what would it be? If you could have one firearm (that’s realistically available) to protect yourself, your family and your assets, what would it be and why? Here are 10 choices made by some of the editors and contributors in NRA Publications. What would you choose? Let us know. “

MY DISASTER GUN

American Elites’ Obsession with Gun Control

 

“Dan Baum on the reaction to the Batman massacre:

Among the many ways America differs from other countries when it comes to guns is that when a mass shooting happens in the United States, it’s a gun story. How an obviously sick man could buy a gun; how terrible it is that guns are abundant; how we must ban particular types of guns that are especially dangerous. The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence responded to the news with a gun-control petition. Andrew Rosenthal of the New York Times has weighed in with an online columnsaying that “Politicians are far too cowardly to address gun violence…which keeps us from taking practical measures to avoid senseless shootings.”

Rights ? What Rights ?

   Good for SAF , good for US . This kind of bureaucratic nonsense has to stop . Support the Gun Rights organization of your choice . Please , even if you don’t own a gun . No organizations work harder at preserving our freedom and liberties than the 2nd amendment groups . If the 2nd goes the 1st is sure to follow . 

” Last month, the Second Amendment Foundation filed a suit in federal court against the police departments of San Francisco and Oakland. The suit was over the police departments’ refusal to return firearms confiscated from individuals during the course of investigations in which those individuals were later cleared of wrongdoing.

The filing, which came just days before the similar story of wounded Afghan war veteran Lt. Augustine Kim surfaced, where, after stop for a medical appointment at Walter Reed during a trip from New Jersey to South Carolina, Kim was arrested and his firearms confiscated by DC police.”
