Zimmerman Injury Photo Released

From ABC News: A new photograph obtained exclusively by ABC News showing the bloodied back of George Zimmerman’s head, which was apparently taken three minutes after he shot and killed Trayvon Martin, gives possible credence to his claim that Martin had bashed his head against the concrete as Zimmerman fought for his life. This certainly appears to […]

Question of the Day: Have You Been Discriminated Against Because of Your Guns?

The Missouri legislature’s been steadily moving a bill through the sausage grinder that’s ostensibly intended to prevent discrimination against gun owners.

Swift Bullets: A-Frame and Scirocco II

I stopped by Swift Bullets to see the “A-Frame” and “Scirocco II” bullets. According to Brad Elder, his bad boy bullets hold their mass at a wide variety of bullet velocities.

Charter Arms .40 Cal Revolver

That’s right – I said .40 cal, as in the .40 S&W.  This sturdy little revolver has a patented detent that allows a rimless cartridge to snap snugly into the cylinder and stay there until you intentionally eject it.  No “moon clips” needed…

Ruger Questions from “You Choose the Blog”

I stopped by the Ruger booth to pass along questions about possible new products, such as Officer and Commander versions of their SR1911.  Alas and alack, the answer is simple.  No comment.  Not a nudge, nudge, wink, wink no comment, but a “we are a publicly traded company and don’t want to attract a sh*tstorm […]

Texas Deputy asks: TAURUS: When are you going to start selling your already existing, currently produced long guns in the US?
