As a Matter of Fact, Americans DO Hunt With ARs

IMG_4850

By now you’ve probably heard that no one hunts (or needs to bring down a deer/coyote/hog) with a so-called “assault weapon.” And there’s no tradition of doing so in these United States. We know this because the White House press secretary told us so. For some reason, though, the People of the Gun begged to differ with Josh Earnest’s informed opinion and have sent us pics – actual photographic evidence! – of themselves and some of their pals who have, in fact, put meat on the table using Stoner (or Kalashnikov) inspired long guns. We know…you’re probably as shocked as we are . . .

Gear Review: GunfightersINC Kenai Chest Holster

image1

During a recent hunting expedition, my friend Dave had a really neat chest harness holster for his GLOCK brand GLOCK. I became intrigued and started looking around.  What I didn’t care for with Dave’s rig was the leather strap retention. I used to compete while wearing my duty gear and always preferred the thumb snap or thumb break holster. His was a fold-over type strap that required an up-then-down motion to free the pistol. I also didn’t like . . .

BREAKING: New York Releases Number of Registered “Assault Weapons.” Massive Non-Compliance Revealed

(courtesy newyorkdailynews.com)

“Since New York’s SAFE Act gun control law went into effect in January 2013, a total of 23,847 people have applied to register their newly defined assault-style weapons with the State Police,” timesunion.com reports “Those individuals have registered a total of 44,485 weapons.” As suspected, the long-delayed release of the numbers indicates an enormous display of “Irish democracy.” In other words, most of New York’s AR-style rifle owners failed to comply with the SAFE Act mandate. How many? Well . . .

Texas “No Guns Allowed” Signs – Winning!

30.06

“The next tussle over Texas’ new open carry law is likely to come over one of its more mundane requirements: signs,” dallasnews.com conjects. Erroneously. Sorry guys, but this one’s a done deal. Come January 1, Texas businesses that wish to ban concealed carry will have to update their 30.06 signs (with mandatory 1″ tall letters in contrasting colors, prominently displayed at the entrance of a business) to conform to the new law, which changes the wording from “concealed handgun” [as above] to “handgun.” But wait! That’s not all . . .

Silencers are Neighborly

IMG_8601

When I need to do some shooting (and boy do I), I have two options. I can head forty five minutes north to Best of the West or two hours to the west to my family ranch. Best of the West is certainly nice, and for times when I have just one thing that needs testing, I’ll head that way. But I do my best thinking behind the windshield, I have a boss who is supportive of me taking a random Wednesday off, and my parents are working on trying out retirement. More often than not, a trip to the ranch seems to be winning the tossup. Long story short, I’ve been shooting a lot more over the last eight months, and a lot of that lead has been hitting a berm I didn’t have to pay an hourly rate for. But that shooting isn’t without a price . . .
