Recoil, You’ve Come a Long Way, Baby

It hasn’t been a full year since the debacle that almost killed Recoil Magazine. In response to their former editor’s misunderstandings and mis-steps in regard to the Right to Keep and Bear Arms in the USA, the magazine almost died. If you missed it, or my vocal role in the situation, you can learn what you […]

How I Freaked Out the Anti-Gun Media

During last weekend’s NRA Annual Meeting in Houston, I gave a presentation on home defense concepts. One of the the suggestions I offered was keeping a gun – locked securely in a quick-access safe – in your child’s room. Just in case. As you may have heard, my tip was picked up by members of […]

Gun Guru Rob Pincus: Why I Go to Mos Eisley

At 2pm EST, I’ll be talking live on NPR, defending gun rights. Why go to the media equivalent of Mos Eisley? Doing my job sometimes means that I have to interact with people who don’t agree with me. By putting myself in a position to try to influence those people who don’t agree with the […]

Rob Pincus: The Real Meaning of Jerry Tsai’s Resignation from RECOIL

Jerry Tsai has stepped down as editor of RECOIL. The debate surrounding Tsai’s pre-resignation statements—and all the conversations that will be had about RECOIL in the near and (possibly) distant future—shouldn’t be about one man’s opinions. It should center on larger issues that affect each and every gun owner. As in “what limits should be put on civilian […]
