Wal-Mart Active Shooter Training Video: “We Have A Right to Defend Ourselves”

Produced in partnership with Wal-Mart and Texas State University, the video is designed to teach employees how to deal with an active shooter situation and will be used to train over 1.5 million employees in the near future. It’s nice that they chose to go with a shotgun instead of an AR-15 or other scary looking rifle for the shooter’s gun, but what’s even nicer is the overall message of the video. There’s the typical “turn off the light and be very quiet and maybe he will go away” approach featured, but the most effective method portrayed in the video…

Factory Tour: Accurate Ordnance


Recently, Nick and I went to northern Georgia to hang out with a mutual friend for the weekend. Said friend had some guns to show us and Nick and I rarely need much of an excuse to go shoot stuff. But our buddy got waylaid by delayed flights and various other engagements, so we found ourselves with a few hours to burn in the Atlanta area. After visiting Gladys Knight’s Chicken and Waffles, we texted our buddy Richard King for some advice on gun stuff we should see while we waited around . . .

Kroger to Moms Demand Action: We’re Not Budging on Legal Open Carry


By AWR Hawkins

Washington DC - -(Ammoland.com)- During a March 25 2015 appearance on CNBC’s Squawk Box, Kroger CFO Michael Schlotman said the retail food chain will not comply with the demands of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, especially as those demands touch on changing store policy to disarm open-carry customers in states where openly carrying a gun in Kroger is legal. Schlotman made these comments after Squawk Box host Andrew Ross Sorkin said . . .

A Look Inside Wilson Combat’s Manufacturing Shop


There isn’t really much debate when it comes to the quality of Wilson Combat’s 1911 handguns. There are only a couple of true custom 1911 builders in the United States, and Wilson Combat is the benchmark against which the others are judged. While I own an example of their work, I’d never actually seen how their handguns are made. Last week I was invited down to their facility in Arkansas to check out their new digs, and watching the process from start to finish was pretty cool . . .

The Truth About the Supply Chain or How to Buy a GLOCK 43


With the long-awaited announcement of the GLOCK 43 single stack nine, demand for the new gun is guaranteed to be high. So let’s talk about how the G43 and other high demand/low supply products enter the marketplace. Many of you think that it’s a pretty simple process when in fact it really isn’t. Many manufacturers follow a distribution sales model, which means they will produce a product, ship it to a wholesaler who will then sell it to a dealer who then sells it to you. It’s a system of middlemen . . .

Have you heard of States United to Prevent Gun Violence? Yeah, neither had we. But the civilian disarmament org had a brainstorm; set up a gun store in New York City. Then, when customers inquire about a specific firearm, tell them about a particularly heinous crime that had previously been committed with that model. Yes, the unsuspecting clients probably should have been alerted that something was up . . .

Remington Defense Finally Releases XM2010 and MSR Rifles for Civilians


Every year I stroll past the Remington Defense booth at SHOT and ask one question: when will the XM2010 be available for civilians? For about five years now, the response has been the same — “eventually.” I started to lose hope that the rifle would ever appear on commercial shelves, but it looks like Remington is finally releasing their XM2010 along with the MSR rifle and other assorted firearms for us lowly civilians. Make the jump for their presser . . .

Incendiary Image of the Day: Credit Where Credit’s Due Edition

(courtesy washingtonpost.com)

Back in the day, I predicted that President Obama wouldn’t touch gun control. Boy was I wrong. Hopefully, the several hundred posts I’ve written since then excoriating the President and the thousands of posts I’ve penned combatting any and all attempts at civilian disarmament have made up for my stupidity. As for the Commander-in-Chief and his gun-hating allies, the firearms industry owes them thanks for a huge sales surge during his tenure. As do we all, really. The more people who keep and bear arms, the healthier the gun industry and the safer our gun rights. Click here for washingtonpost.com‘s financial analysis.
