Washington Post Columnist Colbert King: I Own a Gun But NO WAY I’m Going to Carry One

Through a miracle of modern jurisprudence, Washington, D.C. has transitioned from a complete handgun ban to “shall issue” concealed carry. (The government now must show good cause why they shouldn’t issue a carry permit to a citizen.) This in The Washington Post’s own backyard! No surprise, then, that the rabidly anti-gun rights rag gave editorial space to […]

New From Walther Arms: Creed 9mm Pistol

Walther’s just announced a value priced addition to its line of handguns. Called the Creed, the “pre-cocked double action” TENIFER-coated pistol will pack 16+1 rounds of 9mm parabellum in a size that should make it a viable choice for one gun to handle both concealment and home defense duties…all for an MSRP of $399.

Gun Review: NAA Mini Revolver

Gun Review: S&W Governor (Take Three)

And? As Elvis said, Smith & Wesson was takin’ care […]

The Massad Ayoob Chronicles, Part V

If you’re just now joining the party, we strongly recommend that you go back and start at the beginning with Parts I thorough IV. If you enjoyed Part IV, on flying and the Suarez controversy, sit back and get ready for some more thought-provoking ideas from the acknowledged expert on personal defense. Today, we cover […]

Suicide is NOT Painless

Back in the seventies, a hit movie (and later TV show) M*A*S*H had a beautiful theme song, called “Suicide is Painless.” That’s a lie. Suicide is not painless. Never has been. Never will be. In fact, I’d wager that suicides are the tragedy that keeps on giving, as waves radiate out like ripples in a […]
