New From Delta P Design: BREVIS II Monolithic Suppressors

I found Delta P Design in, unfortunately, a non-shooting booth at SHOT Show 2015’s range day. They were showing off their BREVIS II line of suppressors, which are made entirely out of a single, monolithic piece of Inconel or titanium. No welds inside or out, no seams, no separate mounting parts. They are uniquely short and very lightweight, and available for 5.56 on up to .338 Lapua Magnum. While they are not serviceable, they are supposed to last the life of a typical barrel and the suggestion is to pretty much permanently mount them as you would any other muzzle device. I’d definitely like to use one on a. . .

Why Would Anyone Need More Than Ten Rounds?

Reader Scott I writes:

Rhetorical question for any Fudd friends: Why would anyone NEED more than 10 rounds in a gun to hunt? Answer: Because I’m not hunting. I’m defending my family in my home from multiple armed home invaders. As Assistant Chief Mark Herman put it in the video above, “Folks here in Texas in their homes, they’re are armed. And, uh, you know, it is what it is.”

Question of the Day: What Will You Do Under Stress?

In the video above, Dutch cops “storm” a man who’d taken over Dutch broadcaster NOS’ news studio. The lead cop has his finger planted firmly on the trigger. The other has considerable difficulty holstering his standard-issue Walter P99 Q NL (that recently replaced the old Walter P5). Was it stress that caused the cops to fail to be operators operating operationally? In fact, stress degrade firearms self-defense skills like searching for a suitable link for an Israeli supermodel degrades my ability to finish this sentence in a timely manner. How well do you perform under pressure? Have you ever done force-on-force training? If so, what did you learn there?

Gun Review: Remington Mohawk 600 in 6mm Rem

(This is a reader gun review contest entry, click here for more details.)

By Russ C in Alaska

I am a lifelong hunter/shooter and an avid reader of TTAG since the days of Sandy Hook. I’ve long wanted to do a gun review but didn’t own any firearms that everybody didn’t already know about. Also, I’m not a particularly eloquent writer. But, when I came to receive this latest gem, I knew this was my chance. Enter the Remington 600 Mohawk. My particular rifle is chambered in the underrated and oft-ignored 6mm Remington . . .

MO, KS Legislators Propose CA-Style Gun Violence Restraining Orders

Screen Shot 2015-01-30 at 2.46.29 PM

Reader Andy A. writes:

In a move that affirms what is often said in the comments section and proves that states like California and Connecticut are the canaries in the gun control coal mine, a pair of lawmakers in Kansas and Missouri plan to propose laws similar to California’s Gun Violence Restraining Order law. That allows police to confiscate the weapons of someone deemed “dangerous” by their family or others without due process. They appear to have looked to the Golden State as a template. Note that one of the legislators has a D following of her name the other an R after hers, thus proving that . . .

WFAA Forgets to Mention Membership Numbers for Huey P. Newton Gun Club

Ever since I first noticed the media noticing Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, I’ve complained of carefully chosen camera angles. It’s the Moms’ media enablers’ attempts to hide the fact that MDA events are sparsely attended. Well, here it is again. Except this time, Dallas’ WFAA used editing to hide the fact that the police-averse Huey P. Newtown Gun Club consists of six – count ‘em six – members. The written version of the story is similarly bereft of numerical context . . .

Wilson Combat GLOCK Barrel: GLOCK Perfection Perfected?

GLOCKs are perfect. Well, they’re profitable. Wildly profitable. If Gaston Glock’s mob set out to improve GLOCK perfection – as oxymoronic as that might seem – every penny spent upgrading the gun would come out of the company’s bottom line. And, potentially, raise the gun’s price. Why bother? Why perfect perfection and punt profits? How many pistoleros say “I wish my GLOCK was more accurate?” Enough, apparently, for Wilson Combat to stretch its 1911-o-centric brand to sell upgraded GLOCK barrels. For $159. Is it worth it? How much accuracy do you need in an everyday carry gun? As much as possible, I reckon. In other words, shut up and take my money. Or does that decision evoke the old “fool and his money” paradigm?

Convicted Felon Wields High-Powered Assault Truck in Mass Murder

“Did y’all cover this yet?” Mr emails TTAG central command re: Suge Knight’s arrest for a hit-and-run fatality involving his Ford Raptor. “Three things spring to mind:
1) Is this a gun control success story? I mean, it’s not a ‘gun crime’ so I can feel safe, right?
2) Why does anyone ‘need’ anything more than a base F150? You know, the kind of truck ol’ Grandpa took hunting?
3) Do TTAGs’ readers have a modest proposal of ‘bad features’ that CA lawmakers can use to define (and ban) an ‘assault truck’?”
