  • The PPsH-41 Submachine Gun Makes Me Want to Shout ‘Uraah!’

    War is Boring ^ | December 12, 2017 | Sebastien Roblin
    The PPsH-41 submachine gun undoubtedly reigns as an icon of the Soviet war machine in World War II, immortalized in combat photographs and in films such as Cross of Iron and The Tin Drum. Like the T-34 tank and the Il-2 Shturmovik attack plane, the “Pepsha” or “Papasha” (“Daddy”) was not only a rugged marvel of mass production, but performed well compared to more expensive contemporaries. Both the Red Army and later the Chinese and North Korean armies would employ the “burp gun” on an unprecedented scale.

    Am Shooting Journal ^ | 12/12/2017 | J Hines
    Many gun enthusiasts likes to show off their weaponry and sometimes they’re doing it without the thought of safety. For example Youtuber FPS Russia, he has some serious videos of action/explosive mayhem shots. Such as shooting at an object with tannerite that explodes on impact. Its very fun to watch but you should check out the debris flying around him. Did you see that debris from the truck? I admit it really is fun to watch and probably fun for FPS to be the one shooting it. Good thing he has 9 lives. However, we don’t recommend you do try...

    As information was still coming in regarding Monday’s attempted terror attack in the New York City subway, an MSNBC panel discussing the news ridiculously shifted the topic to outrage over guns and gun crime in the U.S. And on top of that, they bemoaned how President Trump would try to make the attack an immigration issue to support his temporary travel ban.The person responsible for kicking off the gun discussion was former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton. After commenting on how few terror attacks have hit the U.S. since 9/11 (missing a few as he rattled them off), he opined: We will continue to...

    An 84-year-old Korean War veteran is crediting the Lord Jesus Christ with his shot to the chest of a home intruder on Friday morning that left the intruder dead. Early Friday morning, two would-be robbers broke into Korean War veteran Don Lutz’s home in Lawrence County, Pennsylvania. Lutz recounted that he woke up Friday morning at about 1:15 a.m.However, no sooner had they entered the house than they were met by Lutz and a handgun that he normally keeps under his pillow. Lutz says that he fired a shot in the dark and he and one of the men got into a...

    These photos give a whole new meaning to the term 'shotgun wedding'. A shocking internet gallery shows fans of the second amendment proudly brandishing their weapons on their big day. While the choice of ceremony might seem odd to most couples, gun-themed weddings appear to be becoming increasingly popular.

    Our national tug-of-war over the right to keep and bear arms has been going badly for those of us who believe that the Second Amendment protects the right of each individual to protect himself as he thinks best. Back in 2008, Heller laid the foundation for a robust approach to the Second Amendment and in 2010, McDonald told local governments that they couldn’t disregard Heller and limit ownership of firearms however they pleased. And early last year, the Fourth Circuit’s Kolbe decision held that judges must employ strict scrutiny when they consider restrictions that state legislatures place on gun ownership....

    Years ago, my daughter Samantha and I were home in the afternoon (she was off school, and I was home with her) when there was a loud knock on the front door. When I answered, I discovered that there were about a hundred cops, including SWAT (tactical truck and all) at my door and in my front yard. They did not look happy. "Yes? Can I help you?" I asked, as I got about a hundred hard stares from our guests. "Daddy, how many cops are out there?" Sam asked. "All of them, I think..." "Sir, there was a bank...
  • The House concealed-carry bill is arrogant and foolish

    NY Post ^ | Dec 07, 2017 | Post Editorial Board
    With New York City on track for fewer than 300 homicides in 2017, the House just passed a bill to let people with concealed-carry permits issued in any state to legally pack hidden heat in every other state, no matter what the local gun laws say. The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017, which would also strengthen the background-check system, passed 231-198, with six Democratic “ayes” and 14 Republican “nays.” Happily, it should die in the Senate, where it would need 60 votes but is unlikely to even get all 52 Republicans. But that doesn’t make the move any less...

    So, this has been said over and over again, but the Left is going to continue to play this tune. We’re not going the way of Germany circa 1939. We’re not. We have constitutional mechanisms that would prevent such a takeover, namely we don’t have an actual official act that would allow the president to assume emergency decree powers after a catastrophic event, such as the Capitol Building being set ablaze by someone. Yet, former President Obama decided to make a warning that the U.S. could be charting down that path at the Economic Club of Chicago this week. It...

    Breitbart ^ | 5 Dec 201 | AWR Hawkins
    During the December 4 airing of Tucker Carlson Tonight, Carlson asked gun control proponent Mark Glaze if he was ready for the civil war that would follow any real attempt to confiscate firearms in the U.S. Glaze is the former head of Michael Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety. Carlson’s comments came after Glaze bounced from one gun control idea to another, grasping to find one he could justify. His ideas ranged from background checks–which we already have–to all-out bans on certain categories of firearms. Carlson seized on the push to ban certain firearms and said, “You’re saying ban a class...

    House Republicans on Wednesday voted in favor of making concealed-carry permits valid across state lines, scoring a major victory for gun-rights supporters. But similar Senate legislation still faces an uncertain future, with top Democrats and other gun-control advocates rallying in opposition on Capitol Hill. The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act passed 231-198 in the GOP-controlled House, with six Democrats voting in support. “For the millions of law-abiding citizens who lawfully carry concealed to protect themselves, for conservatives who want to strengthen our Second Amendment rights, and for the overwhelming majority of Americans who support concealed carry reciprocity, Christmas came early,” Rep....
  • House Leadership Will Add Pelosi-Era Gun Controls to National Reciprocity

    On December 4 Breitbart News reported that House Leadership plans to add gun control legislation to Rep. Richard Hudson’s (R-NC) national reciprocity bill when it comes to the floor for a vote. Breitbart News has since learned that the legislation being eyed by House Leadership is similar to background check legislation that was pushed while Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was Speaker of the House. That push, which ultimately passed and was signed by George W. Bush, consisted of “improving” the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) but was subsequently parlayed into expanding the number and types of persons listed...

    It's easy for martial artists to talk about self-defense for most of us. Most of us probably don't struggle with physical challenges throughout the day. But what about senior citizens? I have taught self-defense to people in their late 60s and 70s. They were actually quite mobile and had the strength to hit the focus mits hard. (I remember one student was a 73-year-old retired physical education teacher. She was in great shape, had an awesome attitude, and man could she knock the stuffings out of the kick shield!) However, in many cases, our elderly citizens struggle daily with loss...

    Gun Watch ^ | 25 November, 2017 | Dean Weingarten
    A recent experience shows how problems can occur with guns and estates.  I was involved in this. My involvement occurred 27 years ago. In 1990, an elderly relative wanted expert advice on obtaining a firearm. Her husband had recently died. She wanted to have a gun in the house, and wasn't comfortable with pistols. She was already frail and did not have much upper body strength. I recommended a .22 semi-auto, which she could keep handy. She could keep the chamber unloaded. It would be easy to charge and put into firing condition. The Brazilian copy of the Remington...

    A St. Louis pizza driver shot and killed a 17-year-old youth who police said was one of two suspects trying to rob him during a delivery Thursday night. Police identified the dead man as Lavon Courtney Jr., the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. One suspect struck the driver on the head with a firearm, then ran back to his vehicle while shooting, police told St. Louis' Fox 2. The pizza driver returned fire with his own weapon, striking one suspect and prompting the other to flee, the report said. The delivery driver called police after arriving back at the pizza shop,...

    If you were the GOP congressional leadership and WANTED to lose both the House and the Senate in 2018, how would you do it? I would suggest that there is no better way than to turn the GOP into the party that "finally delivered gun control." And this is after an eight-year stalemate under Barack Obama, when the anti-gun movement suffered one demoralizing defeat after another. Not anymore. Senator John Cornyn, the Senate's number two Republican, is doing the "happy dance" with his new friends and cosponsors Chuck Schumer, Dianne Feinstein, Richard Blumenthal, and Chris Murphy -- over their new...

    SHTF Plan ^ | 1-30-2017 | Mac Slavo
    The House Judiciary Committee voted 19-11 late Wednesday for the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017. This bill would amend the federal criminal code to allow the concealed carry of guns across state lines for all concealed carry permit holders. Should this bill become a law, states will not be able to impose their individual requirements for a concealed carry license on those who have a license to conceal in a different state. The left is already terrified. Republicans rejected Democratic amendments that would ban violent offenders from qualifying under the law (because violent offenders cannot obtain a concealed carry...

    Ever wonder if the ATM machines are bulletproof? Maybe they are as you can see most ATM don’t have bullets holes in it. Youtuber Edwin Sarkissian gets a hold of a surplus one and does some testing to see what happens if you shoot at it with different calibers. Results -9mm, 116 grain – one round out of three didn’t penetrate, no exit on the other side. -44 Magnum Desert Eagle, hollow points – same results as 9mm. -AK 7.62×9 – only one round went through the whole ATM machine. -.50 Cal – All rounds went through the ATM These...
