Is Your Concealed Carry Gear Up to Speed?

In mid-July [2014] I found myself once again on the range at the Greene County Fish and Game Association with Dave Spaulding and Brian “Bucky” Buchanan from Handgun Combatives; Larry Moore, Joe Eaton, and Clint Lake from the Buckeye Firearms Association (BFA); and about fifty-five others.

Bell Rings for Anti-Gun Senator Barbara Boxer

California's junior U.S. senator, Barbara Boxer (D), announced this week that she will not seek re-election in 2016. The announcement follows a statewide poll last year, indicating that Boxer's support among Californians had slipped.

Identified as ATF Rul. 2015-1, it significantly expands the scope of activities that BATFE considers to be “manufacturing” for purposes of the Gun Control Act (GCA).
