Does This Look Like a Rifle To You?

(courtesy WDAY TV)

“Levi Joraanstad and Colin Waldera were setting up the large device to take pictures of the moon behind their apartment’s garage on Dakota Dr. N when they were blinded by a bright light and told to stop moving,” Fargo’s wday.com reports. “Authorities say an officer patrolling the area had spotted the two out of the corner of his eye, and thought Joraanstad’s dark colored sweater with white lettering on the back looked like a tactical vest and that he might be carrying a rifle.” So the officer slowly went to investigate. Oh wait. That’s not how the police roll these days. Before the kids were blinded by the light (revved up like a deuce) the unidentified officer . . .

Reacting to the live-TV murder in Roanoke, Arizona Daily Star sports reporter Jon Gold posted the following on Facebook:

Unlike many of my journalism colleagues, I say run the video. Show the people of this country exactly what they are allowing, every single day, in every state in the union. Do not run from it. Do not hide from it. Own up to it. Own it . . .

Feral Hogs Are Destructive and Delicious…And A Dream Come True

hog3

By Russ Lumpkin via Sporting Classics Daily

The tracks of whitetails, turkeys, and feral pigs crisscrossed and piled on each other, captured in the temporary cement of red clay that had not received rain in weeks. Mike and I had hunted turkeys that morning but entered the swamp road toting slug guns and looking for swine. A small pine stood to the left of the road, and a portion of the tree’s bark had been eroded away. The invasive beasts used it as a scratching post . . .

World’s Longest NERF Gun [VIDEO]

When the anti-gunners’ arguments fail, they frequently go all ad hominem. Gun rights advocates, they claim, are compensating for their small penis size. Without getting into details about my own wedding tackle, I know a couple of firearms enthusiasts who are hung like a horse. Equally, as I’ve said here before, it’s a man’s testicle size that determines his character, not the length of his penis. I won’t trouble you with my own cubic centimeter count. And I haven’t taken calipers to any of my gun-toting friends’ testicles. Suffice it to say . . .

Contest Entry: 5 Things to Look For in a Firearms Instructor

FirearmsClassInstruction

By Travis Pike

As a student paying for a service, you have a right to expect your firearms trainer to provide a few things. Yes, they should provide you with quality training, but since we do not have an objective, reliable method of rating firearm instructors, there are a few things you should look into. Here are a few things every good trainer should have outside of a certification from the NRA, Tactical Response, Gun Site or whoever. If you want to be a firearms trainer I suggest keeping a few of these things in mind . . .

Question of the Day: Can You Watch This Video All the Way Through? [VIDEO]

I’m not going to debunk The Young Turks’ pro-Australian-style gun control logic, such as it is. He makes his main point at 6:05: “You think we’d have more firearms and suicides if we had less guns? You don’t believe that. You can’t possibly believe that. No one is that irrational.” That’s what passes for reason in Cenk Uygur’s mind, who singularly fails to clock humanity’s past and current record of government-sponsored mass murder of disarmed populations (including the Armenian genocide of 1915).  The question here: why listen to this nonsense? I mean . . .

Gun Review: The 0% GLOCK GLOCK -or- Lone Wolf Limited Edition 2014

LoneWolf_right

“Perfection” is a strong marketing slogan, but it hasn’t stopped dozens of companies from manufacturing aftermarket replacement parts in the quest to upgrade the perfection that is GLOCK pistols. One of the oldest and largest players in this game is Lone Wolf Distributing, best known perhaps for its caliber conversion and extended length barrels. But they make a lot more than that. In fact, with the recent release of Lone Wolf’s locking blocks for compact and full-size frames, the company now makes or sells a replacement option for every single part that comprises a GLOCK. Including the frame. So, can you build a “GLOCK” with zero factory GLOCK parts whatsoever? Why yes. Yes you can. . .

By Travis Smola via wideopenspaces.com

Savage Arms issued a recall on Monday for their B.MAG bolt rifles. In a statement posted on their website, Savage Arms states that the bolts on some B.MAG rifles have been found to accidentally catch the safety, slipping it into the “fire” position and creating an obviously dangerous situation. “The condition is primarily present if downward pressure is applied to the bolt too early while pushing it forward,” the statement says . . .

Quote of the Day: Go Ahead, Make My Day Edition

 

n_mj_cooke_130412

Heller recognized what was obvious to the amendment’s drafters, to the people who debated it, and to the jurists of their era and beyond: That ‘right of the people’ means ‘right of the people,’ as it does everywhere else in both the Bill of Rights and in the common law that preceded it. A Second Amendment without the supposedly pernicious Heller “interpretation” wouldn’t be any impediment to regulation at all. It would be a dead letter. It would be an effective repeal. It would be the end of the right itself. In other words, it would be exactly what you want! Man up. Put together a plan, and take those words out of the Constitution.” – Charles C.W. Cooke in An Open Rant Aimed at Those Who Would Repeal the Second Amendment [at nationalreview.com]
