    During a comprehensive Omaha outdoor testing the SIG Sauer P320 – winner of the Army’s new M17 MHS pistol – is the only handgun out of eleven different weapons to fail this comprehensive test, a statement released on August 15 by Omaha Outdoors. The testing protocol involved dropping the handguns at different angles with a primed case in the chamber (no live round). None of the ten other handguns – which included four Glocks, two H&Ks, two S&Ws and a 1911 – tested after the P320 fired when dropped. The video released by Omaha Outdoors describing the tests. Here are...

    Another jaw-dropping meltdown video, this time of an entry-level AR-15 upper receiver. The guys over at IraqVeteran8888 have, hands down, one of the most entertaining YouTube channels on the Internet. With great reviews, the always laughable "We'll Shoot Your Stuff" series, and educational videos, IraqVeteran8888 has some truly fantastic content. However, the videos that never fail to please are the "Meltdown" series. The recipe? Take one gun everyone loves. Add a fully-automatic capability. Stir in a ridiculous amount of loaded magazines and drums. Shoot the bejeezus out of the gun that everyone loves until it fails, hopefully while catching fire...
  • Local Militiamen came to Charlottesville as neutral First Amendment protectors, commander says

    Washington Post ^ | August 13, 2017 | Paul Duggan
    Of the harrowing images televised nationwide from Saturday’s white nationalist demonstration in Charlottesville, one of the more chilling sights, amid hours of raging hatred and mayhem, was of camo-clad militiamen on the streets, girded for combat in tactical vests and toting military-style semiautomatic rifles. Photos and video of the heavily armed cadre — a relatively small force commanded by a 45-year-old machinist and long-ago Navy veteran from western Pennsylvania — spread rapidly on social media, raising fears the clash of hundreds of neo-Nazis and counterprotesters might end in a bloodbath. The show of strength was about “allegiance . . . to the...

    Wife unit and I just completed painting our childrens rooms. Theme should be between K-3 , boy and girl. What posters/themes centered on education and religion would you put in their room? Below is a small list I have brainstormed, and I am interested in things that just ARENT taught as much anymore or not emphasized enough. When I was growing up my room was filled with posters to keep my mind going......most were hand made by mom. I'm sure there are nice ones that homeschoolers and teachers use that maybe I'm not thinking of. Thanks! FReegards!

    Feminists can’t wait to find any reason, no matter how far-fetched, to justify their activism. Behold the feminists behind the Women’s March. On August 14, the facebook page for the Women’s March reshared the NRA video that sparked their 17 mile march in July. The video was captioned with the words, “If you didn’t get why we protested the NRA, watch this ad. The act of terror in #Charlottesville is the clenched fist of truth they called for.” Nowhere in the video are supremacists or racists mentioned. And it’s worth mentioning that Heather Heyer, who was killed protesting the white...

    A Canadian sniper set what appears to be a record, picking off an ISIS fighter from some 2.2 miles away, and disrupting a potentially deadly operation by the terror group in Iraq. Shooting experts say the fatal shot at a world-record distance of 11,316 feet underscores how stunningly sophisticated military snipers are becoming. The feat, pulled off by a special forces sniper from Canada’s Joint Task Force 2, smashed the previous distance record for successful sniper shots by some 3,280 feet, a record set by a British sniper. The new record was set using a McMillan TAC-50, a .50-caliber weapon...

    Australia is undergoing a gun “amnesty”, the first general one since 1996, when some of the most restrictive gun laws in the world were imposed on Australia. The federal guidelines were fast tracked by the hoplophobic Prime Minister, John Howard, with substantial aid by the anti-gun Australian media, during the emotional effect of the Port Arthur massacre.From sbs.com.au: Since being declared a month ago, 1700 rifles, 460 shotguns and nearly 200 handguns have been surrendered and thousands more firearms submitted for registration.Surrendered items include four SKS assault rifles, a 9mm homemade sub-machine gun, a Colt AR-15 rifle, M1 carbine,...

    Accuracy in Academia ^ | August 14, 2017 | Brendan Cassell
    Recently, ABC’s 'The View' had a discussion on the Texas law that allows students who are licensed to carry firearms who do so on public college campuses and universities. The law went into effect last year, but community colleges were given an extra year to comply. The segment opens with Whoopi Goldberg asking the question, "Should people be worried about this?" "Duh," said comedian Joy Behar as co-host Sunny Hostin rolled her eyes. Then Jedediah Bila, the show’s "conservative" voice, stepped up to defend the law. She pointed out that the Aurora, Colo. movie theater shooter targeted the theater because...

    Gun ads have changed with the times. Political correctness is certainly not the name of the game in these classic pieces of gun marketing. It was just plain old fashion advertising back in the day. Hammer the hammer? Lawyers wouldn’t come within a football field of this one. Of course, hammering on a vintage revolver probably is a bad idea anyway…Oh no, that guy is teaching his son how to hunt, you say? Where are their iphones, video games and couch? Well, buddy, this is how a father is supposed to raise his son to be a man, not a...

    Are you in the market for a really lightweight .22 caliber revolver? Are you in need of a snake gun for your tackle box or coat pocket? Well, Ruger has a little revolver for you, its the Ruger LCRx revolver. The Ruger LCRx revolver weighing under 17 ounces loaded is really a lightweight. Carrying 8 rounds and chambered in .22 long rifle cartridge this revolver would carry well. For target shooting this little revolver might be a little too light but probably not bad for just practicing with a revolver. Have a look at the Ruger LCRx Revolver video here.

    Florida lawmakers can now submit bills for the 2018 legislative session, and Republican state Senator Greg Steube has ensured gun measures will be on the agenda. On Wednesday, Steube, filed SB 120, which would make businesses, organizations, and other private entities that ban firearms legally responsible for a conceal carry permit holder’s safety. In other words, if a CCW permit holder was injured by another person – or an animal – while on a business’ property where guns are banned, they could sue the business since the owner took away their ability to defend themselves. “If a private business wants...

    Image from the Shillong Times Celebratory gunfire is dangerous. Those who engage in it may not consider where their bullets will land. Thirteen year old Noa Inman in Hammond, Indiana, was struck by a bullet on July 1st, 2017. He died from a wound to the head. Such clearcut examples are rare enough to become national news stories. From nbcchicago.com: Noah Inman, of the 1600 block of 171st Pl. in Hammond, was pronounced dead at 2:06 p.m. Friday, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's office. Surprisingly few deaths from celebratory gunfire are listed in the wikipedia article.  The...

    “If the central government has the authority to tell a state it must accept permits from all the other states, then it also has the authority to tell a state it may not accept a concealed permit from any other states. If the central government can do these things it can set up a national concealed carry permit scheme and in essence bring into existence a national arms registry. That is exactly where this is headed.” Attorney Richard D. Fry 1 Some are touting the federal Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 (HR 38) as a bill which would expand...

    Smith and Wesson (S&W) has been offering a rebate on some of its firearms. The interesting note is that magazines and ammo can NOT be sent to the following states: Alaska, California, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York With the exception of Alaska (Don't know why that state will not allow shipment of mags & ammo), all of the states listed are known to be hotbeds of radical, leftist ideology. The ad confirms that fact. Those states are the enemy of conservative ideology.

    Is there a better antiwar pop song than “Galveston,” which Jimmy Webb wrote and Glen Campbell sang in the Vietnam-hued year of 1969? Therein, a young soldier daydreams of his Texas home by the Gulf and the girl he left behind. He describes the things he misses—“seawaves crashing,” “seabirds flying in the sun”—and confesses, “I am so afraid of dying” without seeing girl or Galveston again. There is not a single note of preachiness or abstraction in the song. Yet in elevating home over foreign crusades, “Galveston” borders on sedition. It really ought to be banned under the Patriot Act....

Watt began retweeting various tweets with the same phrase: “The radicalization of America has been encouraged by the @NRA and open carry laws, which enable armed intimidation. #Charlottesville.” snip The Moms Demand Action account then sent out a series of tweets condemning members of the armed militia, saying they were there to intimidate protestors. The gun control group then went on to say open carry laws in...

    Arizona -(Ammoland.com)- When the Australian government passed its restrictive gun law scheme in 1996, it did not anticipate the technological innovations that would be promoted.Some, like the straight pull FN/Browning Maral, above, are not much different from previous rifles. The British Lee-Enfield had 10 round detachable magazines a hundred and twenty years ago. The Canadian Ross and Swiss K31 rifles both used straight pull bolt actions with five shot magazines. The Maral has small improvements over all three previous rifles.From browning.eu: With all its undeniable experience in making hunting rifles, BROWNING has innovated yet again in the field of straight-pull...
