Guns for Beginners: How to Defend Against A Gun – For Realz! [VIDEO NSFW]

In this video – as in all of these disarm videos – the bad guy holds the gun steady, well within the good guy’s reach. In this situation, even someone who hasn’t studied under Wing Chun Tai Chi JKD Master Wong has a pretty good chance of stopping the bad guy from shooting him – provided they apply the recommended speed, surprise and violence of action. A skilled, determined good guy might even be able to take away the bad guy’s gun and use it against him. Problem: unless the defender incapacitates his antagonist and/or high-tails it out of there (always a good strategy), the good guy will face a vicious counterattack. That said, the biggest problem anyone in this scenario faces is . . .

Gun Control Advocates Don’t Know What They Don’t Know About Guns. On Purpose. [VIDEO]

“There are three basic projectiles that can be fired from a handgun,” Colin D Penny writes at, “the first being the conventional pointed bullet. When this strikes a body it will usually pass through. If it does not strike a vital organ it is rarely life threatening.” Mr. Penny sure sounds authoritative. I wonder why he neglects to mention that a “conventional pointed bullet” that severs a carotid artery can kill you in about six minutes? I’m thinking ignorance. Which is stunning considering . . .

It Should Have Been a Defensive Gun Use: 5 Stabbed at University of California Campus



“A suspect stabbed five people on a university campus in central California Wednesday morning before police shot and killed him, authorities said Wednesday. Two of the victims attacked at the University of California, Merced, were taken by helicopter to hospitals for treatment, spokeswoman Lorena Anderson said. The three other victims were treated locally, she said.” Thank God UC Merced is a designated gun-free zone. Just think how much worse this could have been if one of the students who was sliced open could have defended himself…with something more effective than a dildo, that is.


Pro Tip: Here’s Why You Aim For Center Mass


By James England via

Recently we got a Facebook message from an avid reader who wanted to know our reasoning behind the idea of always aiming for center mass. The reader said that one of his relatives didn’t understand why limb shots or head shots wouldn’t be preferable to a center mass shot. The rationale is understandable — the potential concealed carrier is looking to not take life and simply incapacitate his target . . .

Self-Defense Tip: Call the Cops

Jesse Lyne Bruner (courtesy

I have a rep in these parts for being anti-cop. I’m not. I’m anti-bad cop. If I hear someone breaking into my house or nosing around my property, I’m calling the my good friends (at that moment anyway) in the police department. I’m not going to investigate. I’ll gather friendlies, assume a defensive position and wait. Here’s a story [via deseretmnews,com] where a homeowner took it upon himself to locate and confront a perp before the po-po made the scene and paid the ultimate price . . .

Guns for Beginners: Know the Difference Between Cover and Concealment

Cover is any object that protects you from gunfire. Concealment is an object that hides you from an aggressor. Question: if you were in the Stop ‘N Rob (notice the bars “protecting” the employees) where’s cover or concealment? Concealment would be the shelves in the middle of the store. Cover? Nope. There ain’t none – as the employees discovered. Three things about that . . .

What Could Possibly Go Wrong: A Salt Weapon Edition

“Salt Supply Co. has designed a paintball-style gun that shoots pellets filled with pepper spray that rupture on impact,” reports. “The Salt gun is designed to be a safe alternative to traditional firearms so that nobody gets killed, including children who might discover the gun and think it’s a toy, or a family member that’s mistaken for a burglar . . . The $300 handgun is powered by CO2 cartridges and holds seven .70-caliber slugs. They contain ghost pepper extract encased in a ball that breaks on impact like an egg. [The inventor] said it causes the lungs to constrict, as they would during an asthma attack.” What could possibly go wrong?


Charges Dropped Against Man Who Downed Drone

“He had a right to shoot at this drone, and I’m gonna dismiss this charge.” With that, Judge Rebecca Ward gaveled the case against William Meredith to a close. Meredith’s the Kentucky man who shotgunned a drone out of the sky that he suspected was ogling his teenage daughter as she sunned herself. He faced charges of criminal mischief and wanton endangerment. “’The next time something like this happens, they’re gonna refer to it,’ Merideth said about future cases involving drones. ‘Now I don’t encourage people to just go out and start blasting stuff for no reason – but three times in one day, three times over the course of a year, six times total, over one property? That’s not right, that’s harassment.'” Justice served?


Utah Teachers Trained for Classroom Carry


By James England via

Getting teachers comfortable with guns in the classroom has traditionally been an uphill battle. With most schools being designated “gun free zones” by state legislatures, it’s difficult to have a fast response system in place in the event of an active shooter. The Utah Shooting Sports Council is trying to change all that by offering teachers in South Jordan a free concealed carry training course . . .

Question of the Day: What Accessories Do You Have on Your Self-Defense Long Gun? [VIDEO]

I keep a SIG SAUER Legion Series handgun by the bed for BITN (Bump In The Night) defense. No light. No laser. I also have a SCAR-16 nearby just in case. The FN long gun has a flashlight on its snout, a Leupold scope on top and a red dot on the side. The only other mod: a bit of skateboard tape ahead of the trigger. I reckon the most important accoutrement to my arsenal [sic] isn’t on the gun: a pair of electronic earmuffs. I want to be able to shoot confidently and not lose my hearing, either during a defense or after. What do you have on your self-defense long gun. What mods have you made, and why?
