    Jewish Gun Group Taken Over by Second Amendment Foundation

    There are millions of gun owners in America, but that doesn’t stop this group from being “small” in the sense that everyone, especially the big players, tend to know each other really well. This intimate knowledge is causing waves with the unplanned announcement that the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF), run by Alan Gottlieb, is buying the Jews For The Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO). A little history is in order to understand the current situation. JPFO was started by Aaron Zelman in 1989. According to their website, the purpose of the organization was “… initially aimed at educating the Jewish…

    Much Ado About Nothing: Debunking Steel Cased Ammo Myths

    Oh, I can see the comments now! Yes, I use steel cased ammo. Yes, I use it professionally. Yes, I use it personally. Yes, I compete with it…and yes, I do well! Wolf ammunition has always had a place in my ammo locker. I have used it to develop my skills and still use it today. We use thousands of rounds of this ammo a year in several different calibers with great results. Allow me to take you through some of the details and concerns of using steel cased ammo and how and where to use it for best results….

    A Nation Divided, and That’s a Good Thing

    We hear the term “divided” frequently in the media. New shows, magazines, and web sites all speak of the fact that we as a nation are divided. They say this as though it is a bad thing. It isn’t a bad thing. Quite the contrary — it is a good thing that we are divided. We as a people are meant to be divided. We have a multi-party political system. We have debates, op-ed pieces and a plethora of religions. We divide ourselves by income, race, religion and even sports teams. Since when did division become a bad thing? Truth…

  • Police Pull Mom and Kids From Car at Gun Point (VIDEO)

    FORNEY, TX — Forney Police Department in Texas stopped Kametra Barbour and forced her and her children out at gun point. They had received a call of a car brandishing a gun. Dispatch radio said, “It is going to be a beige or tan colored Toyota occupied by four black males.” The 9-1-1 caller was left far behind as the suspect car sped away. The caller thought he saw them exit the interstate and told police. At this exit, the police stopped Barbour and her children. Now, this could possibly be a case of mistaken identity; there are lots of…

Bloomberg’s Soldiers Now Attacking Nevada

Aug 26, 2014

Mikey Bloomberg is no longer in political office, thank goodness, but he is still a thorn in the side of the Bill of Rights. He and his soldiers, made up of child molesters, child pornographers, wife beaters, drunks, murderers and other reprobates, want to make it even tougher for Nevadans to protect themselves. He has teamed up with the Nevada Network Against Domestic Violence, led by Sue Meuschke. Interesting name — is anyone for domestic violence against women? Well, is anybody for it besides some of the supporters of Everytown for Gun Safety?  This group is seeking to put universal background…

Liberals and Gun Control

Liberals and Gun Control Debate Points

Aug 25, 2014

Liberals have an interesting tactic when it comes to debating the merits of gun control. This tactical approach has been outlined in an 80 page document that they released about a year ago. Here are some of the best talking points and what we can do to counteract them. “#1: Always focus on emotional and value-driven arguments about gun violence, not the wonky statistics.” Just so we are clear, the “wonky statistics” to which they are referring are the ones that show strict gun laws do not lower violent crimes but tend to increase them. They want people to focus…

Moms Demand Action and Bloomberg Now Target Kroger

Aug 25, 2014

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, with the financial backing of the anti-soda, anti-gun nut job Michael Bloomberg, are back in the news, harassing private businesses into making poor decisions. Their newest target is Kroger, the largest grocery chain in the United States. They are following their normal method of operation: Pick a store that has a large market cap, is susceptible to public pressure, and currently follows local state laws when it comes to guns in their stores. They then start a petition with all of the under-educated followers, claiming that they feel unsafe shopping in the…

A Rascal for Your Rascal – Courtesy Of Savage Arms

Aug 25, 2014

I can easily provide you with countless examples of youth who have been on my firing lines with rifles that are either too large for them or are ill-fitted for their body frame in one way or another. Often, this has little to do with the shooter himself/herself, but more so with the fact that young Johnny needs to get a few years under his belt and “grow into his rifle”.  So, how do we allow our pint-sized riflemen to enjoy their new-found hobby in the world of firearms?  There are many options on the market, but in my opinion,…

Using Deadly Force in Law Enforcement

Aug 22, 2014

Any time a police officer uses deadly force, multiple questions and issues are raised. Many of the comments and questions show a high degree of misunderstanding of how deadly force can and should be applied. The Brown shooting in Ferguson has reopened this conversation, and now is a good time to clarify some issues and talk about the use of deadly force and how the police investigate themselves after a use of deadly force incident. Police officers are not required nor encouraged to fire “warning” shots. I have read many comments on message boards and comment sections suggesting that a…

A Tale of Two Berettas (Do We Really Need a New Service Pistol? — Part III)

Aug 22, 2014

Read Part I Here Read Part II Here In preparing for a previous article, I was searching for a Beretta 92F to photograph. One of my best and oldest friends has an older 92F, but he was on vacation and I was unable to get my hands on it. So, I tossed some trade fodder in the trunk of my car and went shopping for a used 92FS to test and photograph. I wasn’t able to track one down, but I did find a brand-new M9 for sale at about $125 under MSRP. After obtaining permission in a really pathetic…

2nd Amendment Generates Millions in Political Money

Aug 22, 2014

The Second Amendment is now generating millions of dollars in political donations on both sides of the issue. Pro-gun groups led by the National Rifle Association are out raising their pro-gun control opponents, led by former Mayor Michael Bloomberg, by a large sum. The pro-Second Amendment groups are now competing for the same dollars and donations. The NRA for so many years was the only game in town, and if you were pro-gun and wanted to contribute, the NRA was your only option. Today, that is not the case. Gun Owners of America and the National Association for Gun Rights…

Gun Ownership

Loud and Proud or In the Closet

Aug 21, 2014

A look at the pros and cons of public gun ownership. I’ve always been on the fence for the aforementioned statement. Should we be public about our gun ownership or should we keep it to ourselves? As with all topics of this nature, I like to stay subjective and look at all angles. One’s choice in handling this matter is really as personal of a decision as choosing what firearm to own. Let’s start with a good, long look at the first extreme, complete transparency. This can be through the use of gun-related stickers and open discussions about shooting. This…

5 Anti-Gun Liberals Shoot Guns (VIDEO)

The Purge: Coming to a City Near You

Aug 20, 2014

The purge is coming — seriously — maybe, or maybe not!  There was a movie that came out last year called The Purge (and its sequel just hit the theaters last week).  The premise of the first movie was, of course, set in the not-too-distant future. A wealthy family has become a target during the annual 12-hour world-wide “purge”.  The Purge, as it is referred to, is a legal, government-sanctioned crime spree, most of which is murder. The family is brutally attacked in their own home and they have to fend for their lives, as do others everywhere. The Purge: Anarchy,…

Aug 20, 2014

The New York SAFE act is now being felt in a most personal way by residents of Ilion, New York. Remington Arms, a longtime member of the New York community has announced more layoffs at their plant in Ilion, New York.

Ferguson Shows Why It’s So Important To Be Prepared

Aug 19, 2014

I always laugh when I see people going to the grocery store just before a hurricane.  We see live images of reporters standing in the middle of Wal-Marts casually going through the main aisles talking.  The reporter usually goes and says that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) suggests that people have between five and seven days of emergency supplies (including food and water) for as many people as live in their home. This is great. It’s grand. It’s Swell. It’s also too late at that point. The unrest that we see from time to time should be enough to…

Declared State of Emergency in Ferguson

Aug 19, 2014

Missouri Governor Jay Nixon has finally declared a state of emergency for the city of Ferguson.  The looting and civil unrest Friday night appears to have been the straw that broke the Governor’s back. The governor has also implemented a midnight to 5 a.m. curfew to be enforced in Ferguson. The curfew did not seem to slow the violence in the city as police and protesters continue to clash. Governor Nixon is mobilizing the National Guard to assist in peace keeping efforts. What We Know 18 year-old Michael Brown was stopped by police officer Darren Wilson early Saturday afternoon the…

Feds Rethinking Military Surplus Program

Aug 18, 2014

In the wake of the heavy-handed handling of the Ferguson shooting, the feds are rethinking the decision to supply law enforcement agencies with surplus military gear. The program has grown exponentially since the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Americans Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) reports that “the amount of goods transferred through the military surplus program rose in value from $1 million in 1990 to nearly $450 million in 2013.” This metamorphosis of police into military units has not been without consequence. The City of Ferguson just happens to be the final straw in a series of law enforcement abuses…

Granny, Get Yer Gun

Aug 18, 2014

It is no longer a secret that women are rapidly moving up the ranks when it comes to competitive shooting.  There are holsters now designed for the woman in mind, like the Flash Bang, the Body Band, the Gun Girdle, Thunderware, and so on.  Men are moving over at ranges to allow women to take up positions in their previously male-dominated sport.  Competitive shooting organizations like IDPA, IPSC, USPSA, etc. have incorporated ladies-only events as well as mixed categories and events.  Husbands and boyfriends are taking their wives or girlfriends out shooting (yes, on a date).  There are female-only instructors…

An Unintended Result Of “Tacticool” .22′s

Aug 18, 2014

There is a wide plethora of reasons why most of us can’t seem to find .22 Long Rifle (or .22 LR) ammunition, and I’ve heard most of them. I’ve heard of managers at WalMart distribution centers skimming off the top shipments. I’ve heard of entire warehouses that were totally forgotten about containing millions of rounds. I’ve seen lines of fifty or so people at gun stores, all of them grabbing as much as they could. In researching for this article, I even went in the wee hours of the morning to my local WalMart to see about those “dirty 6-o’clock-ers”…

Home Invader Becomes Victim?

Aug 15, 2014

INDIANAPOLIS, IN—Recently, in one weekend in Indianapolis, there were four incidents where home owners used a firearm to defend themselves from an attempted home invasion, or upon returning home and finding that they were not home alone. One such incident occurred at 1:00 p.m. on a Sunday afternoon in July 2014. The home owner was at home when three men attempted to invade his home.  The home is in a densely populated area.  One of the home invaders, a 17 year old male, who was armed, exchanged gun fire with the home owner before he was shot and killed by…

Unrest Reigns in Ferguson– Mike Brown Shooting

Aug 15, 2014

Riots and looting continue as the police in Missouri continue to refuse to release the name of the officer involved in the shooting of unarmed teen Mike Brown. It is hard to tell when one watches the video if one is watching scenes of Iraq or the United States. It appears as though the small town of Ferguson, Missouri has been turned into a war zone. Police are dressed in full combat gear and are being deployed in their MRAPs to quell the protesters. Police are firing tear gas and throwing flash-bangs into the crowd in an attempt to disperse…
