Carry, always?

Y’all might want to listen to Tom Givens’ take on this. His part runs about the first 15 minutes on this segment of Tom Gresham’s Gun Talk radio. Tom Givens has had 65 students involved in gun fights. 62 won, 3 died. The 3 had something else in common — they were not carrying a gun at the time and complied with the demands of the bad guys.

On second thought, you REALLY BETTER listen to this.

Canadian massacre

You mean the media didn’t tell you about it?

In late January, a 17 year-old used a shotgun to shoot at least nine people in the remote northern Saskatchewan community of La Loche. Four are dead, including the attacker’s two brothers, who he killed at home before going to the high school.

“This type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries.” — President Barack Obama

Canada has Obama’s preferred gun control.


ISIS minion Khalil Abu-Rayyan, 21, was arrested in Detroit after telling an undercover FBI agent, “I tried to shoot up a church one day. It’s one of the biggest ones in Detroit [about 6,000 seats — JP]. I had it planned out. I bought a bunch of bullets. I practiced reloading and unloading.”

The complaint also quotes Abu-Rayyan saying, “It’s easy, and a lot of people go there. Plus people are not allowed to carry guns in church. Plus it would make the news. Everybody would’ve heard. Honestly I regret not doing it. If I can’t do jihad in the Middle East, I would do my jihad over here.”

“It is my dream to behead someone,” Abu-Rayyan also told the agent.

I once spoke with a local church “greeter” who mentioned that he would never carry his gun in church, but would leave it in his car and then go get it if needed and/or call the cops.

Nope. Too late.

Dept. of Idiocy

  • Actual Headline (Pensacola): “Man Robs Store With Fake Gun, Gets Shot By Clerk’s Real One”
  • We have a report that Australia has decided that T-shirt cannons are restricted “Category B” weapons, like centerfire rifles and shotguns.
  • When you build your deer stand/shoot house, don’t go drilling toward a gas line.

More from the President

President Obama’s Pentagon has ordered four-star generals and admirals, including the regional combatant commanders who plan and fight wars, to: “Incorporate climate change impacts into plans and operations and integrate DoD guidance and analysis in Combatant Command planning to address climate change-related risks and opportunities across the full range of military operations, including steady-state campaign planning and operations and contingency planning.”

The directive, entitled “Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience,” reflects Mr. Obama’s view that global warming is the country’s foremost national security threat (because foreign and domestic enemies killing us aren’t as big a threat as sunburns and goosebumps). Mr. Obama also says there is no debate on the existence of man-made global warming and its ensuing climate change. No debate? As a professional environmental engineer with over 30 years experience, I can tell you that is false.

Man charged in negligent gun show shooting

Robert C. Turner, 74, of Washington has been charged with the misdemeanor of injuring another through careless handling and discharge of firearms while he was working as a gun show vendor at Expo Idaho last October. Turner told deputies he was attaching a zip tie to the trigger assembly of a bolt-action rifle when the gun went off. The shot injured two other men, neither seriously.

That’s Rules 1, 2, and 3.


Why do we need more gun laws when we don’t use the ones we have?

Brian Reicks, 19, of Riceville, IA, along with a couple of cohorts stole several motorcycles, other equipment and more than 85 guns cut from a gun safe in a burglary, received only probation for his plea deal to one count of felony theft of a firearm and one count of felony theft for taking a motor vehicle without consent.

He could’ve been tried for the other 80-plus felony theft counts and felony first-degree burglary and possession of a dangerous weapon.

Keep that in mind when you hear of a prosecutor or judge who wants more gun restrictions on the rest of us.

Army Rangers are badass too

We have a report of a “confirmed kill” with an MRE spoon! An unidentified-by-request Army Ranger was participating in a shoot-em-up building clearing detail in Iraq when a wounded hostile was attempting to pull the pin on a live, handheld grenade. Our hero reportedly rushed the enemy, immediately engaging in hand to hand combat, but the ranger couldn’t get to his knife due to all of his gear being in the way. So he grabbed for the first solid object he could get his hands on; an MRE spoon, with which he stabbed the enemy in the neck until he was dead.

Two points:

  1. MRE spoons are disposable plastic spoons that come with the MRE meals. Beefy and oversized compared to fast-food spoons stateside, but plastic spoons nonetheless.
  2. They gonna ban plastic spoons now? Then what will we eat our Sheeple Airlines food with?

Wild animals

Coyotes on a stretch of highway in California are becoming unafraid of traffic. Experts list several possible reasons why, including people feeding them and that they could be eating wild “magic” psychedelic mushrooms that grow in the area.

A leopard roamed loose at a school in India for 10 hours, attacking some people. It was later sedated and released in the wild. How’s that school lockdown thing working out?

Range issue

Defective gun litigation

Century Arms, Inc. has been sued due to allegations of defective AK-47 safeties/selectors, allegedly capable of moving past safe and when moved such, able to discharge a round unintentionally. In guns in question are models C39, M70, 1960, 1980, and other 7.62×39 chambered semi-automatic AK-pattern rifles.

The suit is filed as Erickson vs. Century Arms et. al. in Federal Court in Florida, and alleges that Century did not warn consumers about the issue when it knew, or should have known based on testing, that the safety selectors in question could cause the issue.


Realtree Camo stackable horizontal gun safes

From a lady, for the ladies. I’m not gonna say which one I like….

UM Tactical has a tunable muzzle brake called R.A.G.E. (Rapid Adjustable Gas Expulsion), which comes with 5 port washers that you can mix and match to reduce recoil and muzzle climb or close off the ports if you don’t need them. .223/5.56 available now; .308 and 9mm in the works. $160.

Yankee Hill Machine has an integrally suppressed, non-ported 18″ 10/22 barrel which would make a 10/22 only a single-stamp gun instead of the common practice of having to SBR a standard receiver and then get a second stamp for the suppressor.

Ruger has a 4″ barrel GP100 with a 10-shot cylinder chambered in .22 LR. The heavy barrel under lug has been trimmed back for less weight and more balance.
