Daily Digest: William Tell Edition

A construction crew in Redmond, Oregon unearthed a pile of World War II-era ammunition on Thursday, and police called in the Air Force to dispose of it. The linked small-arms cartridges may have been related to a large military exercise that took place in the area from July to October 1943, when elements of the […]

Irresponsible Gun Owner of the Day: James Brown

At 2:37 into the trailer for the forthcoming James Brown biopic Get On Up, the Hardest Working Man in Show Biz discharges a pump action shotgun into the ceiling.

CT 2A Supporters Take to Social Media, Appeal for Help

By CTSheepdog Greetings from The Constitution State, though at times over the past year I have questioned whether that proud name is valid any longer.

Promoting the Second Amendment Door to Door

James Yeager Vindicated on Russian Ammo Ban. Ish.

thebangswitch.com reports that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (and Really Big Fires) is refusing to sign importation docs for 5.45X39 steel core ammunition.

Gear Review: RADETEC LED Advisor

In our preview of the RADETEC LED Advisor, feedback in the comments ranged from “cool” to “meh” to “why?” I think my feelings on the Advisor took a similar turn during the course of my review. For the most part, it functioned correctly as I tested the gizmo, and I think they’ll likely sell like crazy. […]

Why No One Wants To Buy My Gun

I’ve dreamt of getting my private pilot’s license ever since I can remember. About two months ago, the planets finally aligned. I had the time to take the training course at a good local flight school. Now that ground school is over I need to get some hours in an actual airplane to keep moving forward. […]
