Housekeeping: TTAG Hiring Email Editor


As The Truth About Guns approaches its sixth year, we’re currently sitting at around 3 million unique readers per month. For that amazing success we thank our readers, commentators, writers and editors. Rest assured we’re not resting on our laurels. We’re currently working on improving the site with new features, a new design, video and much more (suggestions always welcome). Meanwhile, we’re drowning in emails. We need someone to filter them for us. To do that job we need someone who can . . .

TTAG Editor’s Choice Best New Gun of 2015: CZ Scorpion Evo 3 S1


The 2015 TTAG Reader’s Choice Awards may have been all handed out, but we’ve got one more trophy up our sleeve. This past year has definitely been the year of the pistol caliber carbines and the faux SMGs as seen in guns from from the SIG SAUER MPX down to the new batch of imported MP5s that are coming in from Pakistan and Turkey. But while those cater to gun owners with deep pockets there was one product that placed the awesomeness of a cool looking 9mm SMG within reach of the common man, leaving him with money to spare for some ammo and a few mags . . .

The Truth About TTAG: Q4 2015


Happy new year everyone. I know exactly what you want to see on this day off: bar graphs! And statistics! As is our practice at the turn of each quarter, it’s time once again to throw back the curtain and show our loyal readers TTAG’s traffic stats for the last three months and how they compare historically. We do this for two reasons. First, because if I didn’t do it in one big bacchanalia of statistics, RF would be dribbling these posts out every time we hit a new milestone no matter how small. And second because pageviews are the driving factor behind our revenue stream and demonstrating to advertisers that we’re worth the money is what keeps the lights on. So, how did we do? . . .

Happy New Year From TTAG


Another year gone, another aborning. As so many have been under the current administration, 2015 was…interesting. In the Chinese curse sense of the word. And if the disarmer in chief has anything to say about it, the final year of his term will be even more so. Still, those of us who value and practice our Second Amendment rights have much to be thankful for . . .

Housekeeping: Should We Take Down Our Suicide Prevention Lifeline Hotline Widget?


If you look at the bottom right hand corner of TTAG’s home page you’ll see a widget for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. We included it because why not? DrVino clicked on the link – don’t worry, he’s OK – and discovered the image above. Clicking on that link brings you here, where you can learn “who is most at risk for emotional distress from incidents of mass violence and where to find disaster-related resources.” Fair enough? I mean . . .

VOTE NOW: TTAG’s 2015 Reader’s Choice Awards


Every year around this time, the editors of the various firearms related publications retreat to their respective back rooms to count their receipts and determine which companies paid them the most money. I mean…which products were the best of the year. TTAG doesn’t play that game. Instead, we ask you, our gentle readers, to tell us what you like. We tabulate the results, order the plaques and run around the SHOT Show handing them out to the worthy recipients. Well, it’s that time again . . .

Housekeeping: A Quick Note to Our Readers Regarding TTAG News Tips

Screen Shot 2015-12-13 at 5.48.51 PM

As you can see, TTAG has crested 2.8 million unique viewers per month. (We were over 3 million after the President’s speech.) A large part of our success is due to our ability to report on firearms-related news and opinion pieces in a timely manner, on an hourly basis (sometimes more). We couldn’t do it without our TTAG tipsters, who email links to Thank you. Our success means that the number of reader emails has increased dramatically; we currently have over 500 unread emails in our inbox. Dan and I work diligently to whittle them down, but I’d like to ask your help . . .

Housekeeping: Show Us Your “Weapons of War”

I see no reason why American citizens shouldn’t own “weapons of war.” We can, after all, own tanks and cannons. Besides, those muskets that the anti-gun rights crusaders insist informed the Second Amendment were “weapons of war.” Not to mention the fact that the Second Amendment protects Americans’ right to keep and bear “arms.” No “high-caliber rifles” or “shoulder thing that goes up” excluded. So . . . send a picture of your weapon or weapons of war to with WOW (all caps) in the subject bar. PLEASE include a full description of your gun’s make, model, caliber and attachments. [NOTE: we understand that many readers lost their rifles in tragic boating accidents. For those who didn’t, rest assured that TTAG doesn’t release any information about our readers to any third party. And never will.]


Housekeeping: TTAG Mail Alerts Down


Unlike the US Postal Service, whose blue-bedecked army comes through despite rain, sleet, snow and dark of night, WordPress can be a little more, uh, finicky. A number off faithful readers have reported that they’re not receiving their usual email notifications of new posts. Rest assured that our best programmers — top men — are diligently working on the problem at this very moment. We hope to resume your email notifications shortly and apologize for the inconvenience. As always, thanks for reading.
