Vester_Flanagan__B_3419930b

“The (Charleston) church shooting was the tipping point…but my anger has been building steadily…I’ve been a human powder keg for a while…just waiting to go BOOM!!!!” ABC News is playing peek-a-boo with Vester Lee Flanagan’s (AKA Bryce Williams’) Unabomber-esque manifesto he sent them before tracking down and murdering Alison Parker and Adam Ward in front of two cameras this morning. According to this ABC post, Flanagan/Williams fingers Dylann Roof as the spark that touched off this pathetic explosion, but anyone claiming to admire the work of Eric Harris, Dylann Klebold and Seung–Hui Cho wasn’t running on a full tank to begin with . . .

The 704 action was originally designed by Ed Brown, famous for his 1911 pistols. The bolt action lay dormant for a number of years before Legendary Arms Works resurrected it for their Professional rifle, a custom-grade gun put into regular production. The Professional brings together a number of custom features in a standard bundle. The Cerakoted and synthetic-stocked rifle features a Timney trigger with no creep, a threaded and fluted barrel, and an ingenious way to remove the firing pin quickly and easily . . .

Housekeeping: Should We Have Posted The Roanoke GoPro Video?

Bryce Wlliams

Out and about today, I followed the WBDJ shooting story on MSNBC’s satellite radio channel. The anchor announced that Twitter and Facebook had deleted the accounts showing the killer’s instantly infamous GoPro video of the murder. The news org’s anchor said the network wasn’t going to run it, or the live footage taken by the now-dead cameraman. Thomas Roberts did, however, describe the shooter’s video, moment-by-moment. What was the point of that? Now I realize . . .

The results are in! TTAG readers who participated in our Lockerdome poll at the side of our home page favored the GLOCK 43 over the Smith & Wesson 442 by a margin of 58 percent to 42 percent. We rank that as a convincing win – from a self-selecting sample of gun guys and gals who weren’t asked why they preferred one pocket pistol over the other. If I had to guess . . .

Question of the Day: What Gun Lube Do You Use?

AregularGuy reckons you’re better off lubricating your firearms with motor oil than anything the firearms-related aftermarket has to offer. If you’re the kind of person who knows better then A) you’ll watch this entire video to dispute his claims (you’re a more patient man than I Gunga Din) and B) I invite you to leave your choice of gun lube in the comments section below, along with the reasons for your choice. Suffice it to say, I wish I shot my guns often enough to give a damn about which lube I use. Your thoughts?

The first trailer for “The Hateful Eight,” Quentin Tarantino’s newest shoot-‘em-up, was released earlier this month to generate buzz for an end-of-year release. Famous for taking graphic onscreen violence and gore to the extreme, the upcoming Western promises more of the same, with the director explaining it will “Trap [the characters] together in a room with a blizzard outside, give them guns, and see what happens.” . . .

BREAKING: North Dakota Legalizes Weaponized Police Drones [VIDEO]

“It is now legal for law enforcement in North Dakota to fly drones armed with everything from Tasers to tear gas thanks to a last-minute push by a pro-police lobbyist,” thedailybeast.com reports. “Bruce Burkett of North Dakota Peace Officer’s Association was allowed by the state house committee to amend HB 1328 and limit the prohibition only to lethal weapons. ‘Less than lethal’ weapons like rubber bullets, pepper spray, tear gas, sound cannons, and Tasers are therefore permitted on police drones.” On the positive side . . .
