Living in a Gun Control Fantasy World

by Steve Davis The people who steadfastly believe in gun control live in a fantasy world. A place no more real than Skittle-crapping unicorns, winged fairies and dope-smoking caterpillars. Pretending Alice in Wonderland is true doesn’t make it reality. Let us examine some of the most common gun control fables. The world would be a […]

The Elitism and Classism of Age-Specific Gun Control Laws

By Mark Houser There have been several recent efforts to impose gun control particularly on people between the ages of 18 and 21. Such restrictions were part of Washington state’s infamous Initiative 1639, and Senator Diane Feinstein is currently attempting to implement similar age-specific regulations nationwide through her Age 21 Act.

Chicago’s New Mayor Blames Police for ‘Losing the Streets’ to Violence

Chicago’s new mayor, Lori Lightfoot, blames police for Chicago’s spiraling violent crime problem.

Love the classic Colt Detective Special with Stag grips.   I find them appealing, and […]

Gun Review: TriStar Folding Survival Shotgun

I have a love-hate relationship with Armslist. I love the idea, but I hate the scammers, the guys trying to trade tattoos for guns, and the fellas who can’t seem to ever meet at the time and place agreed upon. Occasionally, though, you find a deal or an oddity you can’t say no to and […]

Video Games Should Replace Shooting Things with Sorting Laundry or Cuddling With Your Cat

We present the following without further comment. Shooting things in games is intrinsically compelling. Firing, watching something blow up, and then seeing our score ping higher on the screen creates an exciting feedback loop that gives us immediate agency and power.

Oregon Guy’s Two Karambits and a Tricked-out G43: Everyday Carry Pocket Dump of the Day

Oregon Guy sends his “My EDC” for today’s pocket dump of the day, courtesy Everyday Carry. That’s quite an upgraded GLOCK 43 with Streamlight 69270 TLR-6 Tactical Pistol Light with Red Laser.  Glad to see his sights aren’t standard.  Probably some sort of tritium night sights or a fiber optic sight.   He writes that he […]
