    The New York Times has a problem with guns.

They do not understand assault weapons bans. They do not understand the rules of NRA conventions. They do not understand Australiaís gun control laws. They...

    ...So, the model of an officer's gun dates him or her like rings on a tree. The outer bands are the semiautomatic, 9-millimeter pistols. The next ring is much thinner, the brief period of the so-called spurless revolver, a gun with an internal hammer that for safety cannot be cocked. Finally, in the center, there is the classic revolver, such as the Smith & Wesson Model 10 or the Ruger Police Service Six, more commonly seen on "T.J. Hooker" reruns or film noir than on the streets of New York. The grips still echo the earliest revolvers, designed in the...

    A mob of brazen burglars stole dozens of weapons from a Tampa gun shop Tuesday morning, after breaking in by driving through the front of the store.

The crime took about 60 seconds. "It seemed to be well-calculated," said Richard Smith, the store's owner, adding he got a call notifying...

If youíre into long range shooting, its important to understand how the ďCoriolis effectĒ affects your shot at 1000 yards or greater. The Coriolis effect is the rotation of the earth and the movement of a target downrange from the shooter. This is another element that a long distance shooter has to consider for along with wind, rain, snow, distance, elevation and a many other factors. Accounting for all these factors signifies the skill sets needed for precision long range shooting. In simple layman's term:"if you're shooting...

    The current sustained popularity of the guns of the Old West convinced Lyman to reintroduce some of the Ô¨Āne accessories they used to manufacture in the 1800s. That's a general statement, but it also leads us right into this short conversation about their #2 Tang Sight, which is made especially for the 1873 lever action as manufactured by Uberti. Lyman patented their #1 Tang Sight in 1879. The #2 followed either very shortly after if not at the same time. The only difference between those two types of sights is that the #1 had the combination apertures, with the fold-down...

If that latter fact lasts past 2020, Republicans will redraw the district maps after the census, potentially solidifying control of the U.S. House.

    Bullet lube in a black powder cartridge can function in two ways. On grease-groove bullets, it helps keep the bullet from rubbing the gun¬ís bore to reduce the chance of leading. In a load with a paper-patched bullet, it coats the bore with lube to help prevent hard powder fouling from being too hard or stiff. In other words, with grease-groove bullets, the lube is primarily for the shot being Ô¨Āred, but it also leaves the bore somewhat coated with lube to keep the black powder fouling soft for the next shot. When shooting paper-patched bullets, the lube largely prepares...

Clinton says this will ďkeep guns out of the hands of those who will do harm.Ē After each mass public shooting, President Obama has made a similar case for background checks on private transfers of guns.

    Handguns from an Arizona Turn In Event, 2013 In 2013, the Arizona Legislature passed HB 2455, to prevent the destruction of valuable firearms by lower levels of government in the state. No penalties were imposed. It is not normal for local governments to destroy valuable property, at least not when the property can be legally sold for the public benefit. But in this case, the property was being destroyed for ideological purposes, not for pragmatic ones. The purpose of destroying valuable guns is to send the propaganda message: guns bad.† Some cities, especially Tucson, refused to obey the law....

    The Coach's Team ^ | 11/3/16 | David T. Hardy
    The following article appeared on November 2nd on the American Thinker website Hillary: Impose Gun Control by Judicial Fiat By David T. Hardy Itís no news that Hillary Clinton is against guns (except those in the hands of people who protect the high and mighty) and enthusiastically in favor of restricting gun owners. When it gets down to specifics, her position does become vague, with some exceptions. One of those exceptions stands out only because of its obscurity. Hillary really, really, wants to repeal the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act. The PLCAA essentially protects gun manufacturers and gun...
  • Gun owners 'must take better care of firearms to stop jihadist attacks

    Gun owners must take better care of their firearms to stop them falling into the hands of jihadists plotting a massacre, police have said, as they disclosed 800 lawfully-held weapons go missing each year. The threat of terrorists getting guns for a marauding Paris-style assault has meant the need to rid the streets of weapons has ďnever been a more significant priorityĒ, senior officers said. The difficulty of finding guns in the UK has given police a ďmassive advantageĒ in stopping atrocities such as those seen in France, but there are concerns firearms are still available to potential terrorists, some...

    Depending on what youíre shooting, thereís always a little bit of recoil, sometimes itís hardly noticeable, like the AR-15 ó unless youíre a journalist with the New York Post. On the other hand, a rifle like .950 JDJ, has a kick that leaves a lasting impression and probably a bruise the size of a dinner plate.
