Cop of the Day: Officer Matt Lyons, Oceanside PD

This is how a policeman should treat an individual while open carrying. Can we get Officer Lyons a nice-paying gig training other cops in…oh…Philly?

Hoping Slow and Steady Really Does Win the Race

As a great musician once said, rust never sleeps. Well, neither do we here at TTAG. Always looking for new and innovative ways to serve, entertain and inform the Armed Intelligentsia, we’ve been experimenting with slow motion videography. Fun? You betcha! Difficult?

We have more work to do before adding this particular tune to our extensive and growing repertoire, but let us know if you have any bright ideas for how you’d like to see it used in new and innovative ways. Above is a Smith & Wesson Model 28 Highway Patrolman firing a .38 spcl. Make the jump for a couple of 1911 vids…

Click here to read Outgunned. It’s Representative Elijah E. Cummings’ pre-hearing report, asserting that “lax gun laws” forced the ATF into desperate measures (i.e. its anti-gun smuggling gun smuggling operation). Cummings’ circus…

The headline above used to read “defensive gun use.” And then it turned out (via 2.nbc17.com) that the man inflicting loud noises on his neighbors was shooting at prowlers who posed no direct threat to his life or limbs. So . . . offensive it is.

According to our stats, FPSRussia is the gift that keeps on giving. As much as I enjoy the traffic—which is a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of the faux Russian’s YouTube viewership—I’d love to see ole’ FPS shoot responsibly. At that point, FPSRussia would never darken our IGOTD doors again. Alas, his latest cinematic sortee has all the familiar failure features: a) shooting without eyes or ears b) breaking the 180 rule with his camera man c) shooting at close objects without regard for collateral damage. I, however, have a new angle on his steadfast refusal to be a proper inspiration to his legions of young fans. Shooting without proper protection is irresponsible because our medical system is expensive enough without adding the cost of avoidable emergency care. Know what I mean?
