    In a virtue signaling display common on the left, the Washington Post published an article critical of a church for raffling two rifles for charity.  Amy B. Wang, a writer for the post, made a national story of the dislike of a leftist for the raffle of two AR-15 type rifles.Image from oxfordeagle.comFrom “I had a kid approach me: ‘Would you like to join a raffle? We’ve got two AR-15s.’ And I’m like, whoa,” Belden-Adams said. Just the Sunday before, a gunman had opened fire on a country music festival in Las Vegas, killing 58 people and wounding...

    Three people were taken into custody Saturday after a driver was pulled over as he left O’Hare International Airport and an assault-style rifle and handgun were found inside his vehicle. A pressure cooker was also found during the traffic stop, which happened shortly after 8 a.m. as the vehicle exited O’Hare Airport, according to Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi. Neither the guns nor the pressure cooker were believed to have been intended for any acts of violence in the city, which will see enhanced security measures during the Chicago Marathon on Sunday, police said. The vehicle was stopped after the...

    Anamosa, Iowa — Anamosa Police Chief Bob Simonson was injured last month when his rifle accidentally discharged during a call for service. According to Jones County Sheriff Greg Graver, Simonson and a Jones County deputy responded to a 911 call at 2376 County Road E28 on Sept. 23. The caller reported a man was threatening another person with a gun. Graver said when authorities arrived on the scene, the suspect, 68-year-old Marvin Hunter, of Martell, was still on the scene. Hunter was taken into custody and now faces one count of first-degree burglary, a Class B felony. While the deputy...

    The rate of fire and waveforms match almost exactly. If you have ever used a bump fire you know they are finnicky at best and certainly not capable of firing a perfect 74 round burst as shown in this video.

    Want a new AR, but can’t afford it? No problem. Just collect soda cans and make one. Everybody loves getting new guns. Unfortunately for some of us, they are just aren’t in the budget. If you don’t have the cash for a new AR, you can always just start collecting soda cans. No, you don’t sell the cans; you melt them down and make your own AR. This guy is dedicated and pays attention to detail. After all the time and effort put into making an AR out of aluminum cans, you could probably buy one several times over, but...

    This is what some people call a ghost gun. It's an air 15 semiautomatic rifle that has no serial number. It’s untraceable. I didn't have to go through a background check or any sort of waiting period to get it. The government has no knowledge of its existence in fact and that’s because legally speaking I didn’t buy this gun. I made it. Anyone can buy every part of an F-15 on the Internet. There’s one part though that you can’t buy without a background check. And that is a functioning lower receiver. The body of the gun which you...

    AR-15 rifles are not immune to the dreaded kaboom. Like any firearm, it can fail if improperly loaded with bad ammunition, or maybe other factors. Does someone smell a squib bullet with another bullet fired into the back of it?Well, it appears all the parts are there, how come it doesn’t fire?I think, the bottom of an AR-15 rifle is not supposed to look like that.

    Another jaw-dropping meltdown video, this time of an entry-level AR-15 upper receiver. The guys over at IraqVeteran8888 have, hands down, one of the most entertaining YouTube channels on the Internet. With great reviews, the always laughable "We'll Shoot Your Stuff" series, and educational videos, IraqVeteran8888 has some truly fantastic content. However, the videos that never fail to please are the "Meltdown" series. The recipe? Take one gun everyone loves. Add a fully-automatic capability. Stir in a ridiculous amount of loaded magazines and drums. Shoot the bejeezus out of the gun that everyone loves until it fails, hopefully while catching fire...

    Here's an aftermarket trigger that doesn’t suck and actually shows some innovation. With all the customizing of AR’s , using a shorter barrel would need to also shorten the gas system to allow it to operate correctly. Operating at this level the bolt carrier system picks up speed. Which winds up beating up the firing component. The fire control components takes a huge beating, specifically the disconnector. After four thousand rounds the pin shears and disconnecter failure occurs. This is the reason manufacturers comes out with trigger system to solve this problem and here's one to consider. KE Arms trigger...

    Arizona -( In the video below, the Weatherproof Roofing and Exteriors company is offering guns as an inducement for purchasing their products. With the final payment for a roof replacement and exterior repairs due to a hail or wind storm, you get a “free” gun.As with all promotions, the “free” gun is paid for by the customer, one way or another. It is part of the advertising cost of running the business.But people like to get something substantial in their hands, other than money.  A promotion helps to facilitate transactions where the buyer wants the promotional item, but is not...

    At one time back in the day, inside most police cars were equipped with an M-870 shotgun. Then theres an odd ball patrolman with his AR-15 with .223 caliber. Which patrolman has the advantage? The logic behind the usage of an AR stems from situations where a firearm needed for greater range than a shotgun. So the debate begins, shotgun folks talk about having the knock down power to stop the fight with its 00 buck. AR’s with its high velocity and more firepower in terms of 20 rounds – 30 rounds magazine capacity. Using either firearm we can make...

    James Reeves of TFB TV discusses 8 traits of the humble Ruger Mini-14 that actually best the infamous AR15. James also gives viewers a brief history of the Mini-14, including a discussion of improvements that have been made to boost the historic Mini-14's poor accuracy. Production of the Mini-14 started in 1973 by Strum and Ruger. The rifle caliber is 223 Remington and is basically a scaled down version of the M-14. Mini-14 has more of a personal feel than the AR-15. Maybe it is the wooden stock of the Mini that gives it more of a hunting rifle look...

    Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower,” believed the late Steven Paul “Steve” Jobs, co-founder, chairman and CEO of Apple, Inc. It’s obvious that Nosler, Inc., subscribes to this philosophy as well; since 2014, the year that the 26 Nosler made its debut, the Bend, Ore., company has introduced a total of five new cartridges. Outside of the early 2000s, when Winchester and Remington were embroiled in a frenzied ballistics battle, such a flurry of activity is somewhat unusual—makers of proprietary and wildcat cartridges notwithstanding, of course. Of the new Nosler namesakes, the .22 caliber is arguably the most...

    There are some myths about suppressors out there. Most of these myths comes from gun owners that don't own a suppressor or from playing the video game "Call of Duty". One of the myth is the ineffectiveness impact of the weapon. Fortunately, we have United States Marine Corps Gunner Christian Wade to set the record straight. Gunner Christian Wade is a Chief Warrant Officer 5 and is the Gunner for the 2nd Marine Division, literally making him an expert on small arms and their employment.
