Hardwood Gun Stocks Reduce Recoil. No Really.

I wish I could shoot out my window. Tyler can. He’s shot deer from inside his ranch’s kitchen. Anyway, I’m not sure if this is a fair test. Boyds Gunstocks‘ presser proclaims “A gunstock serves as the foundation of the barreled action and plays a big role in eliminating movement. A hardwood gunstock assists in dampening the vibration and impact created when the trigger is pulled. If a stock is hollow or flexible, it allows the barreled action to move, which can significantly affect the accuracy of your shot.” While I get wood (so to speak), there are plenty of polymer or fiberglass gunstocks that aren’t flexible. Also by the time you experience recoil the bullet has left the building. The lesson here: don’t cheap out.

Two NYPD Cops Executed As Revenge for Michael Brown, Eric Garner

shooting2.jpg

Two uniformed NYPD officers were shot dead Saturday afternoon as they sat in their marked police car on a Brooklyn street corner — in what investigators believe was a crazed gunman’s ­assassination-style mission to avenge Eric Garner and Michael Brown.” This had to happen. Eventually. Preach that all cops are racists long enough and someone – in this case 28-year-old Ismaaiyl Brinsley, who had murdered his girlfriend earlier in the day — will believe it. “’I’m Putting Wings on Pigs Today,’ a person believed to be the gunman wrote on Instagram in a message posted just three hours before the officers were shot” . . .

Increasingly Armed Mexican Populace Preparing for a Revolution?

America’s anti-gunners vilify gun owners who dare suggest that armed citizens are a bulwark against government tyranny. Maybe back in the late 1700’s, but not today. They scoff at the idea, arguing that these latter day self-styled armed American patriots wouldn’t stand a chance against the might of a modern military, should such a thing come to pass. Well it has come to pass, just across our southern border . . .

Irresponsible Gun Owner of the Day: Luke Sanderlin

“Luke Sanderlin, 34, called police early this week to say that he had been carjacked by the person he believed to be the man who murdered six people earlier in the day that police were searching for,” concealednation.com reports. “His story was that he was out for a walk near his home with his dog, when a man with a knife approached him and asked for his keys. Sanderlin told police that a scuffle ensued and that he drew his firearm in self defense and fired shots at the attacker.” Nope . . .

OMG! Machine Guns! Near Disney World! OMG!

Screen Shot 2014-12-20 at 7.44.06 AM

Come on, is nothing sacred any more? With the opening of Machine Gun Alley in Orlando, yet another wholesome destination for family fun is about to be sullied by the sound of gunfire. Automatic gunfire. “The 13,000-square-foot facility sits directly across from Kissimmee’s Old Town attraction which is a nostalgic tourist mecca aimed at family fun. But instead of roller coasters and go carts, Machine Gun America offers live ammunition automatic weapons, including high-powered machine guns,” reports Orlando’s wtsp.com. Bastards. And you know who’s supremely peeved by the whole thing? A national spokesperson for Moms Demand Action, that’s who . . .

Question of the Day: What Gun Games for Xmas?

I don’t play video games. They’re too good and I have too much to do. Like reading the book, Men Who Game Too Much and the Schnauzers Who Love Them. My addiction began with Battlezone, a polygon-based tank game that sucked down quarters like INSERT QUASI-MISOGYNIST METAPHOR HERE. It ended with Call of Duty, when I heard the call of duty to raise my daughter as a single father. But I still love gun games from afar. Not Jafar. If Jafar was driving a tank, his ass would be mine. Just sayin’. What gun games are you playing and which ones do you recommend as Xmas gifts to yourself or others?

By Aaron James

After more than 100 years spent focused on food manufacturing, Kellogg’s waded into uncharted waters last year with the introduction of their new line of pistols, simply called Pop-TartsGiven the challenges of an already crowded market, it was a brave move. I decided to pick up their flagship model to see if Kellogg’s Pop Tart has what it takes to hang with the big boys, or if it’s simply a marketing gimmick designed to cash in on the ever-expanding industry. After a quick trip to the QuikTrip, I had the hot little pastry in hand. I went straight home to get the lowdown on their fresh new offering. The results were somewhat surprising . . .

New From G2 Research: .300 Ripout Expanding Cartrige

300TridentProductLowRes

If you’re a regular reader, you may remember our 2013 Readers Choice Awards. The honor for best new ammunition went to Lehigh Defense for their .45 Colt Maximum Expansion round. As ShootingTheBull410 demonstrated, that’s one devastating handgun round. G2 Research seems to have been inspired by that design for their new nastily named .300 Ripout round, a 200 grain bullet that peels back on contact creating a wound channel that should have pigs positively panic-stricken. But there’s worse news for Porky yet; G2’s sending some of this stuff to Nick for testing. Mmmm. Bacon . . .

This Is What Happens to a Disarmed Populace: Belize Edition

belize-615

Have you heard the ads for Belize real estate on the radio? They tout the country’s stable political system, proximity to the United State, native English language, clement weather and relatively cheap land prices. Paradise on earth? Not if you violate the country’s gun laws. Last week, a Belizean judge sent a mother and her two-month-old baby to jail after police found a single bullet in her home. How politically stable can a country be with this sort of draconian gun control regime? Stable, perhaps, but not free. As the following editorial (republished with permission) from the publisher of amadala.com.bz proves . . .
