Seems some of Finland’s government officials have looked around the EU and noticed an uptick in radical Islamic terrorism. Leaping into action nearly a year and a half after the problem began to manifest itself, the Fins have announced their plan to stem the violence. The Nordic nation says 7,000 police officers will soon receive […]
In the video below, Iraqveteran8888 fires a fully-automatic Adam Arms AR-15 until the rifle’s handguard catches fire and melts. Why? To see how an entry-level piston system compares to an entry-level direct gas-impingement system. Or maybe it had something to do with pretending to be Batman baddie Bane. Who knows? I’m just wondering if YouTube […]

Machine guns that joined us in the woods were: • Lone Wolf G9 […]
Our British cousins gaze upon America’s vibrant, thriving gun culture with a mix of curiosity, disbelief and horror. While the two nations share the same language (sort of), they don’t share much in the way of freedom. When it comes to guns, sadly British subjects don’t enjoy any right to keep and bear arms. In […]
In many places around the world where firearms are very difficult to obtain legally, small shops manufacture simple submachine guns for the black market. They are common in Brazil, Israel, the Philippines, and increasingly in Australia, Canada, and even here in the United States, where submachine guns are highly regulated.
