DeSantis Gunhide Question of the Day: Ever Been “Outed” As a Conceal Carrier?

TTAG Publisher Robert Farago (courtesy The Truth About Guns)

I don’t get out much. Nor do I play well with others. But on occasion I’ve been with a group of people — in Austin — who don’t know what I do for a living. There’s always someone who does. And they always reveal my ballistic shtick. Reactions vary. But someone invariably asks if I’m carrying. Sigh. I have a range of answers. “Concealed means concealed.” “Operational security demands discretion.” “No.” “Yes.” Does this happen to you? How do you deal with it?

Hillary Clinton Slams AK Open Carry (a.k.a., “Chipotle Ninjas”)

In the video above, presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton tells a bunch of financially forthcoming anti-firearms freedom folks that the Supreme Court is “wrong on the Second Amendment.” Mrs. Clinton is saying — force record — that the McDonald decision should be overturned. That landmark ruling “incorporated” Second Amendment protection for the right to keep arms for lawful purposes. And that means that . . .

M+M Industries M10X Hybrid Rifle


M+M Industries’ M10X is a bit of a hybrid, borrowing design aspects from the AK-47, AR-15, and FAL. Externally it looks most like an AK, but it sports many modern touches — monolithic upper receiver, floated barrel, AR-style ambi safety, ambi charging handle, adjustable gas valve, 5/8-24 barrel threads, hinged lower so the rifle opens up like an AR, and 95% of its parts are black nitrided. Speaking of parts, it has even less parts than an AK-47. Oh, and it’s 100% made in the USA from US-made parts. T&E request has been made. More photos follow . . .

Boxer Tactical Daily Digest 5.23.16:


Stage set for historic 2016 showdown over guns – And according to MSNBC, it’s all the NRA’s fault. “The group’s message used to effectively be, ‘Play ball with us and we’ll leave you alone.’ That’s transformed into, ‘We’re coming after you, whether you try to work with us or not.’ With incentives like these, Clinton has made the calculus that she might as well speak her mind and try to prevent some gun violence, since condemnations from the right are inevitable either way.” Speaking of things the NRA gets blamed for . . .

Potato Gun Vs. Watermelon: Just Thought I’d Leave This Here

The antis promote the idea that gun owners are dangerous people. To their way of thinking [sic], any of us could go psycho and start shooting innocent people. A logic trail that leads straight to civilian disarmament; inherently dangerous owners mean gun ownership is inherently dangerous. So The People of the Gun tend to play down their gun love and talk about hunting, self-defense and anti-tyranny insurance. Fair enough, but . . . watermelons! Potato gun! BOOM! If you don’t think that’s fun, youuuuu might be an anti. Just sayin’.


Housekeeping: Why I “Have It In” For Donald Trump

Ralph let me have it with both barrels for Trump: Actually, I Don’t Want Guns in the Classroom. Except Teachers. Maybe. I deleted his comment according to our posting policy on flaming, but the gist of it is simple enough: Ralph reckons I hate Donald Trump more than I hate Hillary Clinton. Wrong. I’m under no illusions about which is the worse candidate when it comes to defending American’s gun rights: Hillary Clinton. When the time comes, I will hold my nose, cover my eyes and block my ears and vote for Trump. That does not mean . . .

Self-Defense Tip: Don’t Assume Your Attacker is a Rational Human Being [Video NSFW]

Gun gurus warn against drugged-up perps who possess super-human strength or imperviousness to pain. Be that as it may, it behooves any armed American to understand that an attacker may seem “normal” but be out of his head on drugs. You cannot assume that an attacker will act rationally when you present them with a logical alternative to ballistic perforation. As always. KEEP YOUR DISTANCE. Create as much of it as possible, as soon as possible. And don’t hesitate to shoot if you are imminent in danger of death or grievous bodily harm. Remember: a perp may choose to attack when it makes no sense to do so.
