  • I Bought An AR-15 Using Facebook

    No guns on Facebook? We'll see. At the very beginning of 2016, Facebook banned gun sales on its site. But it's not that hard to get around these rules. With all the school shootings and mass murders, placenames now becoming shorthand for different shootings (Aurora, Sandy Hook, Charleston, etc.) one can hardly blame Facebook for getting cautious. Like any responsible company, they want their asses and assets covered. Still, that didn't stop one Buzzfeed writer from buying an AR-15 (That oh-so-dangerous "Assault Rifle" everyone's so afraid of) via facebook not far from San Bernardino. See, while Facebook officially bans guns...

    ATF Clarifies Legality of AR Pistol Arm Brace UsePosted on April 25, 2017 by Dean Weingarten Arizona – -(Ammoland.com)- Late in 2012, the ATF approved of a device that fit on the buffer tube of AR-15 style pistols. It made one handed shooting of these firearms much easier, and hence more accurate. The SB15 was invented by a disabled veteran, Alex Bosco. He quickly sold the rights to produce the arm brace to Sig Sauer. As you can see, the device can also be used as a very short stock for the AR-15 pistol, even though that is not what...

    If you haven't seen the AR-15 Can Cannon soda launcher, you are seriously missing out. This is a fairly new, innovative, and badass way to fire, launch, or otherwise shoot your favorite (or least favorite) soda! At least one company has made a "Can Cannon" that's compatible with either an AR-15 or an M16. Think the idea came from non-lethal weapons, law enforcements uses the shotgun to shoot bean bags at the bad guy when they don't want to seriously injure them. X Products has made one such fun way to abuse your favorite soda called the Can Cannon. The...

    Made-in-Taiwan rifle parts selling rapidly in US: report Around 1,000 rifles built with Taiwanese-made T91 assault rifle upper receivers sold out fast after being released to the U.S. market, local media reported on Monday. Defense Ministry's Armaments Bureau has signed a contract with U.S. arms importer Wolf Performance Ammunition last year for Taiwanese-made T91 upper receivers, or "uppers," and other parts for the assault rifle to be sold in the U.S, the Chinese-language United Evening News said. The Type 91 is the standard-issue service rifle of the R.O.C. Army.   Because local and U.S. laws made it difficult for Taiwan to...

    In February 2015, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) attempted to ban a popular AR-15 ammunition, 5.56/.223 (SS109/M855) green tips.  Though they had no constitutional authority to ban any ammo, much less be an actual agency, they backed down due to the outrage of American patriots.  Now, government watchdog Judicial Watch is suing the ATF for records related to the bureau reportedly reconsidering reclassification of ammunition as "armor piercing." Judicial Watch announced on Monday that it had filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the ATF in which it seeks "records of communications related to a proposed...

    A gun specialist and a trauma specialist gives us an answer by reproducing a scene from the 1986 war film, Platoon. With the assistance of a fast camera, we will get a good idea on the degree of harm. The M16 slug 5.56 (.223) is known for its “tumble” which is essentially what causes the harm. Nonetheless, while most lead center slugs do this after they enter the tissue, the M16's speed also adds to the injuries. From a distance of 30 feet, what will happen to the ballistic gel mannequin? What will be the impact to the imperative organs?...

    This AR-15 with a two-inch barrel takes it to another level and is just insane. AR-15 style rifles sporting shorter length barrels are high in demand these days. But how short is just too short on a registered short barreled rifle (SBR)? Well, try this one. Yes, that barrel is actually only two inches long. When firing the 5.56x45mm/.223 caliber cartridges, the tips of the bullets protrude out of the barrel. This can be witnessed in the video before each shot is taken. Is a 2″ barrel a good idea on an AR-15 rifle? Maybe not, but it does still...

    AR15s are now by far the most popular gun being sold on the civilian market in the United States. By some estimates, nearly a quarter of all firearms sold in 2014 and 2015 were so-called “Assault Rifles” like the AR15, of this 25% figure, the vast majority were AR15s or variants thereof.Since 1995 (the year after the 1994-2004 Assault Weapons Ban), the FBI has maintained a very detailed list of how many people have died at the hands of assault weapons and/or rifles, which are merged into the same group. Therefore, we can make a solid comparison on what gun...

    Given the status of the AR15 as the preeminent military rifle still today, it comes as a surprise to many people to learn just how old the gun really is. Civilian production of the SP-1 model by Colt actually began in 1964, which means that early SP-1 rifles started becoming Curio & Relic qualified back in 2014. Right now in 2017, more than 10,000 C&R AR15s exist – and this is one of them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jowv167KdbM

In a 10-4 ruling, the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Va., said the guns banned under Maryland's law aren't protected by the Second Amendment.

    Am Shooting Journal ^ | 2/2/2017 | J Hines
    There are some asking what is “bump firing” on an AR15. So here’s the quick and dirty sort of lengthy explanation on Wiki: Bump firing is the act of using the recoil of a semi-automatic firearm to fire shots in rapid succession, which simulates the feeling of a fully automatic firearm. This process involves bracing the rifle with the non-trigger hand, releasing the grip on the firing hand (leaving the trigger finger in its normal position in front of the trigger), pushing the rifle forward in order to apply pressure on the trigger from the finger, and keeping the trigger...
