7 Things You Need to Buy With Your Handgun

If you are in the market for a handgun, then you have plenty to think about in regard to choosing a make, model and caliber that will fill your needs. But it's a mistake to think that buying the gun is where the purchase ends. Handguns are not ordinary tools that can just be tossed in a drawer like a wrench or a hammer. To properly store, maintain and use a pistol or a revolver, you need to...

A Failure to Acknowledge Reality

I took a call a couple of weeks ago at work. A woman was reporting that she had been “attacked” by an aggressive dog several times over the last year. As I talked to her to find out what happened, I learned that a neighbor’s dog regularly barks at her as she walks past the neighbor’s house. The dog is restrained by an “invisible fence” and does not leave its yard. The woman told me “Every time I...

Honing the Concealed-Carry Mindset

We live in an amazing modern world of turn-key solutions. Especially in America, we have an astounding variety of tools, technology and instant access to information at our finger tips for solving our day-to-day problems. While many of these assets are convenient, they can make us mentally lazy if we let them. We could start to think that being in possession of the "right" or "best" equipment...

Yes, you heard correctly: Buckeyes may now carry in the Keystone State!

[Editor's Note: As this news began to circulate, we received a good number of emails and inquiries on our Facebook page seeking confirmation. Our delay in publishing this article is due to two factors: 1) a desire to confirm the information with the Ohio Attorney General's office - which we have done - and 2) the editor was at the NRA Annual Meetings and then took a family vacation. Apologies for...

REVIEW: SIG Sauer P320- Tomorrow's SIG Today

They have that SIG look to them—blocky slide sitting well above the receiver, gracefully shaped butt section, simplified controls. Unquestionably, a strong family resemblance that says the innovative designers up in New Hampshire have a new series of pistols ready for your consideration. However, there are several features that are quite different, and the most significant is the absence of a...

The 21-Foot Rule Revisited

In 1983, Dennis Tueller, a police officer, published an article discussing the need to defend against an attacker armed with a knife or blunt weapon. Through his tests and studies he determined that a person would be in danger if the attacker came at him from 21 feet or less. In short, the attacker could get to his victim before the victim was able to draw and accurately fire his handgun. While...

Op-Ed: Hollywood Actors Who Support California Gun Laws

California has some of the toughest gun laws in the country. This pleases many Hollywood gun control activists, who continue to promote efforts for legislation around the country to regulate firearms and the purchase of guns. California received the top rating for the strongest gun reform measures in a 2013 state analysis by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and the Law Center to Prevent...

Ohio Deputy's case is latest to highlight bad laws, unreasonable prosecutions, unequal justice

In recent years I’ve often written about people entangled in our nation’s complex, confusing, and irrational gun laws. People like David Olofson, who was sentenced to 30 months in federal prison for illegal transfer of a “machine gun” after his standard, semi-auto, AR – with no altered or modified parts – malfunctioned and produced hammer-follow doubles and triples. Or FBI Special Agent John...
