The Media's (and Retailers') One Dimensional Viewpoint on Softening Gun Sales

Instructors, whether they're teaching driving, flying, tactical shooting or scuba diving share a common viewpoint on tunnel vision: generally speaking, it's a bad thing. Tunnel vision focuses you on a single point when you should still be thinking wide. Tunnel vision is how a child learning to ride a bicycle can invariably center-punch a tree surrounded by open yard. They were focused on the tree...

Poll Shocker: “Overwhelming” Support for More Background Checks is Actually Rather Underwhelming

Lacking evidence that gun control restrictions reduce crime or enhance public safety, proponents of such measures seek to justify them by misleading messages, misciting statistics, or pointing to a “groundswell” of popular support, alleging that an overwhelming majority of the general public/gun owners/NRA members/Green Party voters support whatever new restriction it is that’s being proposed...

SHOCK: Persons obtain 70+ firearms without background check

According to so-called "common-sense" gun control extremists like Mark Kelley's "Americans for Responsible Solutions," all we have to do to keep criminals from gaining access to firearms is to mandate that a background check be done before all transfers of firearms. Pass "universal" background checks, we're told, close the "gun show loophole," we're told, and we can stop mass shootings! Indeed,...

Speculation about the safety of the P320 began circulating on the Internet, with some commenters citing language in the owner's manual warning about the potential for the pistol to fire if dropped.

Run, Hide, Perish – Survival Do’s and Don’ts from Across the Pond

The United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) advises persons at risk of harm from an active shooter to “Run, Hide, Fight” (in that order), recommending “fight” – incapacitating or “attempt[ing] to take the active shooter down” – if all else fails. In the United Kingdom, police and counter-terrorism authorities like the National Police Chiefs’ Council and the London Metropolitan Police...

Shootin' Southern Style

Perhaps it is a sign of aging but it seems I like old things - old dogs, old cars and in this case old shotguns. Nostalgia for the way things used to be just sneaks up like another birthday. I really appreciate the classic side by side shotguns made in the late 1890s through to just before World War II. There is something about this time in shotgun making that produced guns with a graceful lines...
