CMMG released this product at SHOT (yet somehow forgot to mention it to me when I stopped by their booth), but they’re here and showing off some of their production models at NRA this year. Their aluminium upper receivers are produced with two open rectangular areas on either side, into which screws either a flat […]
Okay, I know that sounds like a horrendously lefty-type question, but at the barbecue strategy meeting Thursday evening, Robert brought up the question of how do we bring more minorities/”people of color” into the gun community and I was reminded of this wandering around the Con, seeing the almost complete lack of melanin in the […]
Fortunately before I came to St. Louis I checked the carry laws. I knew that MO accepted all permits, so my MN permit would allow me to carry; but I discovered that it is a FELONY to carry on a bus. Fortunately a rural Democrat is working to correct that problem . . .

I’m sitting here in the press room, watching the Gun Blast guy scarf a muffin as the creme de la creme of the firearms media gathers for the National Rifle Association’s annual gathering of the OWFGs. (Make the jump for Mr. Cooper’s T-shirt clearing technique.) Dan’s ligging an NRA breakfast, Nick’s hunting bedbugs with his […]
OK, so they’re not really calling this the Winter Combat model. Heizer’s actually calling the albino version of their soon-to-be-released (fingers crossed!) double-barreled pocket gun the Hedy Jane. They’ve obviously decided that pink guns aren’t the only way to reach the female gun buyer. Like the other DoubleTaps, the HJ will be offered in your […]
