Life Of A 75mm Pack Howitzer Owner




Published on Sep 26, 2014

” Owning a National Firearms Act item is troubling enough with the $200 tax stamp, stack of paperwork and all the extra equipment and ammo. But when it comes to owning a Howitzer, the latter is doubly difficult. On this episode of “We The People,” Dom Spano talks about his life as the proud owner of a 75mm Pack Howitzer.”












New 3-D Printed Ammo To End Ammo Drought









” 4.1.2014, Palermo, Italy – Italian 3D-printing startup, Brachia Caeli Industries (BCI) announced today at a press conference that it had successfully printed fully functional centerfire ammunition. This comes on the heels of December’s congressional ruling that the Undetectable Firearms Act (UFA), which bans guns not visible to metal detectors or x-ray scanners, does not apply to 3-D printed arms.”



     We could find no reference to the “start-up” anywhere but Brachia Caeli translates from the Latin to “Arms of Heaven” and we have been unable to determine whether this is an April Fool’s story or not but Guns.com has the details .









Man And His Homemade Boomstick — Literally A Stick That Goes “Boom”

” With what looks like an old shower rod, a man has configured a homemade shotgun, “pipe gun or zip gun,” or whatever you want to call it. By way of the video, the creator “Kip” shows us that the single-shot shotgun is made up of two pieces: a barrel and receiver. And he also demonstrates how it works:”

Remington 1858 still in the box

Remington 1858.

” The world that was the antebellum period in United States was one of rapid industrial expansion and in the 1850s firearms makers were stumbling all over themselves to produce the next great gun to roll off the line. One such gunmaker was Fordyce Beals.  After studying the factory process for S&W and Colt revolvers, he came up with a design that was significantly improved in function and production. His design, patented and licensed to Remington in 1858, used a solid frame design that included a top strap that went over the cylinder. This was stronger, more durable, allowed the user to swap cylinders out easily and added a layer of safety to the user if the cap and ball revolver chain fired.”

Here’s Another Sample 













Sailing through the Sea of Remington 870s


” The Remington 870 is arguably the most prolific pump shotgun. More than 10 million have been made. There are so many existing variations and customization that it is hard to define exactly what an 870 is. Remington currently makes more than thirty variations. But that doesn’t begin to represent all of the possible variations. “

Want A FAMAS ?

  “Here is the super rare National D’Armes De Saint Etienne Famas bullpup French service rifle! In the late 80’s, Century Armes produced a very small amount of civilian Famas F1 style assault rifles, called the Mas .223. The exact number imported in the U.S is unknown but from what we have found it is very close to 100. So it is no question that this isn’t something that comes around often. Most who own will never sell and those who don’t, here is your chance! This compact bullpup is in excellent condition, displaying minor handling wear. The finish is very smooth and appears rugged. It is chambered in .223 and 3 magazines are included. There is a sling and bipod attached as well. There is a cheek rest on the stock that can be attached on either side for ambidextrous shooting. Very low recoil and accurate shooter! A must for any serious collector! This one is it! Best of luck bidding! ALL FIREARMS SOLD MUST SHIP TO A VALID FFL DEALER! Please check with your dealer before bidding/buying. If you have any questions please ask before bidding/buying. SORRY NO SALES TO CA.

Gear Review: Maxpedition Bags for Bugging Out

Maxpedition Falcon II

“How much can you carry? If you’ll be bugging out in a well equipped deuce-and-a-half, weight may not be an issue.  If you will have to walk anywhere, weight will become a primary concern.

I have a long history of wilderness wandering.  I’ve hiked most of the Appalachian trail.  I’ve hiked all over New Mexico and Colorado.  I spent a summer in the Boundary Waters and the Quetico, canoeing.  I’ve lived for months at a time out of a backpack.

But bugging out is different.  Though weight is a factor, so is convenience.”

 loses 3D printer support

  “The Wiki Weapon project lead by Cody Wilson of Defense Distributed is the first major attempt to develop plans for a 3D-printable firearm. As he states in his video introduction, the idea isn’t new or original, but despite years of discussion, nobody has actually worked out all the details, at least not publicly. 

And the plans will be open-source, like software, compatible with open-source CAD software, free for anyone to use, update, modify and share. The long-term goal is to make a reliable, hopefully reusable firearm using nothing more than a RepRap, an inexpensive 3D printer that is designed to be able to replicate all the parts needed to replicate another RepRap, which is also open-source, free for all. 

Unlike other recent 3D-printed firearms, the Wiki Weapon standard eventually calls for no non-3D printed parts. Other people have used 3D printers to manufacture AR-15 lower receivers at home, which legally speaking counts as a firearm, but then use off-the-shelf parts and complete upper receivers to build a functioning rifle. Anyone with any AR experience knows that a lower, without the commercially-produced parts, is just a paperweight with a serial number. 

So with that idea in mind, Wilson took the idea public. Here’s his introduction.”

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Gun Community Helps

  “October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Close to 300,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with some form of breast cancer every year.  Close to 40,000 die form the disease annually.  The cure remains elusive, yet many people have dedicated their lives to fighting the cancer and finding the cure.  But they can’t do it alone.

One of the most logical ways to help in the fight is to provide monetary support for research.  We at Guns.com are happy to report that more gun nuts like us are getting involved.”


Check Out The Links … Buy a T-Shirt …. Find The Cure


“Raising money for breast cancer research isn’t new territory for the gun community.  Sure, Smith & Wesson has deep pockets. They can afford to reach deep and help with what is a truly worthy cause.  But what about those of us who don’t have corporate identities, or those of us who would like a new gun, but can’t afford one?”

NC Store Clerk Unloads at Thieves Who Kept Her Husband Hostage


 “You frequently come across stories wherein a late-night store clerk has to open fire to defend his life from an armed thug. It’s rare that one of these clerks also has to protect the lives of a loved ones. 

But in this shooting case, Theresa Smith of White Plains North Carolina was forced to defend herself, her business, and her beloved husband against a pair of thieves. 

It all happened Sunday night around 9:30, just 10 minutes before Smith typically closes up for the night. Her husband, Barry, had just finished closing up at another business and he had come to Mrs. Smith’s Cupboard No. 2 to help her finish up for the night. When he arrived two men – one of them with what appeared to be a black, 9mm semiautomatic handgun – grabbed Mr. Smith, pressed the gun into his back, and forced their way into the store.”
