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 […]

Question of the Day: Got Mouse Gun?

Gun guru David Kenick’s rule for concealed carry: pack the largest, most comfortable gun you can. Most days that’s my Wilson Combat EDC X9 in an outside the waistband holster, covered by a polo shirt or an UNTUCKit shirt (as above). But now that I’ve shed 20 pounds . . . I can tuck my […]

Hellfire Gen2: Mini-Bump Fire Stock Without the Stock

In an earlier post, a former ATF agent brought our attention to the $60 Hellfire Gen2 “trigger assist.” We reckon the mini-bump fire stock — without the stock — deserves its own article. The as-yet-unbanned YouTube promo video below reveals a device that does what the much-criticized bump fire stock does for less money and […]

New from SAR Arms: SR-38 Revolver

2012 wasn’t exactly the Year Of The Revolver at this year’s Media Day At The Range, but we got our hands on a few wheelguns. Here’s RF busting a few caps with the Turkish-made SR-38 revolver. Despite its name, it’s chambered for .357 Magnum. And quite the pussycat it was too. Now that we’ve opened […]

Gear Review: XS Rifle Sights

RF: Sorry to hear about your Marlin 1894C breaking in half at the range last week.  I’ve been looking forward to comparing my retro classic lever hunting rifle to your Urban Cowboy Assault Rifle, something John Wayne might have carried in the classic movie “Tom Clancy’s: The Searchers.” Looks like my project is coming along […]

TTAG Blogs the NRA Confab

Yes, the annual love fest that is the NRA’s meet n’ greet for the firearms faithful is coming up again this April, this time in Beautiful, Downtown Pittsburgh. (!) And TTAG will be there, in force to cover the event.

Good News, campers! The Massad Ayoob LiveBlog has been rescheduled, for Thursday, February 24th. Massad will be joining RF and me from his temporary HQ in the Windy City to field your questions, and fill you in on the straight skinny, direct from the man himself. So get your questions ready. Mark your calendars. And […]

Ask Not For Whom the Bell Trolls…

…it trolls, in this case for legendary InterWebz antagonist JadeGold, who’s posted his last screed in the comments sections of TTAG as of today. The Truth About Guns was founded (as our founder RF so succinctly put it) to explore the ethics, morality, business, politics, culture, technology, practice, strategy, dangers and fun (yes fun) of guns. It was […]

Obscure Object of Desire: Heat-Seeking NERF Vulcan

The genesis of inventor Rick Prescott’s infrared seeking Sentinel (a.k.a. “Dilbert’s Revenge”) from the man himself, via makezine.com: An idea sparked in my mind one day while walking the toy gun isle in a store with my kid and later that evening learning of the workings of a thermopile array while surfing the internet. The result is […]

Gun Review: Springfield XD-M 3.8 9mm

My mother has a “shit list.” You do NOT want to be on my mother’s shit list. She can make Devil’s Island seem like the Ritz Carlton. And once you’re on my mother’s shit list, you’re on it. It doesn’t matter if you suck up to her like a remora fish on a shark. There’s […]

TTAG Welcomes Washington Times Readers

The Washington Times has just published my editorial Racist pols go straight back to disarming blacks. The piece excoriates the Supreme Court for failing to fully restore African Americans’ Second Amendment right to bear arms. It rips Chicago Mayor Richard Daley a new one for his inherently racist gun control legislation: restrictive laws that place discriminatory barriers […]
