This is how a policeman should treat an individual while open carrying. Can we get Officer Lyons a nice-paying gig training other cops in…oh…Philly?
As a great musician once said, rust never sleeps. Well, neither do we here at TTAG. Always looking for new and innovative ways to serve, entertain and inform the Armed Intelligentsia, we’ve been experimenting with slow motion videography. Fun? You betcha! Difficult? Nah, more of a steep learning curve. Baby steps, though…baby steps. Here are […]
In today’s Congressional ode to gun control (Outgunned), the authors end with a mention of the “other” federal law enforcement officer killed with guns enabled by our friends at the ATF. That would be U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Agent Jaime Zapata, gunned down inside Mexico by person or persons unknown. Quite what Agent […]
“Lee County Capt. Jeff Johnson says some friends were in [Randall] Butler’s girlfriend’s home when he showed them the safety features of his .22-caliber pistol. The captain says Butler showed them the safety and how the gun would not fire. Johnson says after Butler pulled the trigger and it didn’t fire, he showed them the slide action, put […]
Click here to read Outgunned. It’s Representative Elijah E. Cummings’ pre-hearing report, asserting that “lax gun laws” forced the ATF into desperate measures (i.e. its anti-gun smuggling gun smuggling operation). Cummings’ circus is now on, with the Obama apologist parading gun control advocates in front of the Congressional cameras, including Brady Campaign President Paul Helmke’s last hurrah. […]

For me, Leupold has always been the gold standard for riflescopes. I’ve never shot at any distance or with such precision that I needed adjustable parallax, BDC reticles, or anything that has “mil” in the name. Find me a nice piece of glass with good clarity and adjustable zoom and I’m good to go. Leupold […]
In Vietnam, I understand the official term was “friendly fire.” The grunts called it “fragging.” Killed by your own troops. It happens. Generals don’t like to lose anybody, but as realists, they have to talk about things in terms of “acceptable losses” and “collateral damage.” But when it is leaders taking the bullet, and not […]
“The incident occurred after two groups left a lounge at Seventh Avenue South and South Lane Street,” seattlepi.com reports. “The officer was in a parking lot and watched as the groups wandered into the middle of Seventh Avenue between South Dearborn and Lane streets. The groups began arguing, then one of the men opened fire. The officer identified herself, but […]
U.N. Resolution 1973 “Authorizes Member States that have notified the Secretary-General, acting nationally or through regional organizations or arrangements, and acting in cooperation with the Secretary-General, to take all necessary measures . . . to protect civilians and civilian populated areas under threat of attack in the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, including Benghazi, while excluding a […]
[HTML1] According to our stats, FPSRussia is the gift that keeps on giving. As much as I enjoy the traffic—which is a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of the faux Russian’s YouTube viewership—I’d love to see ole’ FPS shoot responsibly. At that point, FPSRussia would never darken our IGOTD doors again. Alas, his latest […]
