The above video is going to be played on a loop all weekend at FNH USA’s booth at the NRA Annual Meeting, but if you can’t make it to Tennesee (or just want to watch it in glorious high definition on your own time) then you can enjoy it here. As expected the gun is semi-auto, which means that the shooter pulls the trigger for every round fired. But unlike the open-bolt military version, the civilian version fires from a closed bolt. It’s a huge difference when it comes to the way the gun operates, but it really doesn’t change how fun the gun can be out on the range. And yes, we’ve asked for one — in 300 BLK.
Shannon Watts, spokeswoman for the Michael Bloomberg-funded Moms Demand Action propaganda campaign – seen here next to concealed carrier, occasional TTAG contributor and Marine Alan Brooks – was spotted at a local gun range in Austin, Texas this past weekend enjoying some gunpowder-fueled funtime.

I just flew into Atlanta to meet Tyler and another one of our buddies for a weekend of fun with guns. As we had some time to kill before heading out to the farm we decided to go get some chicken and waffles at Gladys Knight’s Chicken and Waffles in Hotlanta. On the way we started talking about our favorite topic: guns. Since we haven’t done one of these podcasts in a while, we decided to record the entire thing and put it up for your listening enjoyment.
Also, the podcast is BACK! Click here for more information on how to automatically get the latest episodes.
I was hanging out with the guys behind Dead Air Armament a week or so ago and while we may have been sleep deprived and slightly intoxicated, we had an idea. Silencers work great when it comes to sound reduction, but how well do they work in terms of flash reduction? Well, we were in a cabin in the middle of nowhere, had a bunch of rifles, a handful of silencers, and a reasonably competent photographer (yours truly), so we decided to try to capture the difference on film. The results were pretty interesting . . .
The Washington Times has published a “How well do you know your guns?” quiz on its website. As you see above, I got one wrong. Well, I insist I’m actually correct and that the Times’ answer for the Hague Convention question isn’t technically right. Take the quiz to see how you fare! If you’re curious about the Hague thing, the reasoning follows (spoiler alert). . .
