Failure, by Choice!

21 Oct 16 “In a universe so full of wonders, they have managed to invent boredom!” Terry Pratchett This from a student and colleague, who works with a state agency: “Assisted at our state police academy for the past few days.

“Tinkering” with Lives!

20 Oct 16 NY State: Throughout NYS, a new requirement under the infamous NYSAFE Act (passed by Democrats in the middle of the night), is that all current state pistol permit holders must now laboriously re-register all handguns, this time directly with the State Police.

More on Rifles

19 Oct 16 Follow-up on Rifle and Gear, from a Friend and Colleague: “Fifteen years ago, when we had ten AR’s in a Class, at least half would be dead-lined by the middle of the first day!

Endless Riots!

10 Oct 16 Rioting, without end! Being “anti-police” is now “politically correct!” BHO, HRC and their BLM “movement” have created the nationwide anti-LE environment that recently caused a Chicago PD officer to decline to defend herself from a crazed, murderous attacker, with nearly fatal results. She was beaten to within an inch of her life. […]

Magazine-Release “Lever”

7 Oct 16 “Flake” Magazine-Release Lever: We’ve see a number of H&K’s Glock-like VP9 Pistols in Defensive Pistol Classes recently. All have run well, and the pistol’s ergonomics are pleasing. It represents a very acceptable carry-gun. However, one “feature” of the VP9 can be an issue, and that it the pistol’s ambidextrous magazine-release “lever.” Most […]
