Gun Presence

30 Apr 19 “Both liberal government and liberal media sources are increasingly unwilling to report facts, when the truth is incongruous with their Marxist agenda.” Ferris The truth: GUN PRESENCE stops “Gun Violence!” They’ve painfully discovered in the UK, now that private gun-ownership there is virtually extinct, yet violent crime persists, all despite solemn promises […]

NRA Show and Conference, 2019, Indianopolis, IN

29 Apr 19 2019 NRA Show and Conference, Indianapolis, IN This year’s Annual NRA Conference was fraught with controversy, as we all know now. I didn’t know about any of the high-level wrangling until I arrived, and I still don’t know much! I’ve never met any of those up the food-chain at NRA, and I […]

“This is Only a Start…”

26 Apr 19 “You should not overlook Guidelines of your Culture. Life is short, and you don’t have time to figure everything out on your own. The wisdom of the past was hard-earned, and your dead ancestors may have something useful to tell you.” Jordan Peterson In the wake of the recent mosque massacre in […]

Driveways and Parking Lots, the Most Dangerous Places you Go!

25 Apr 19 “Disengage and Separate” This narrative from a female student: “Last Friday afternoon, I was shopping in a local retail establishment. It’s located in a downtown ‘commercial district,’ and generally viewed as a safe, quiet, suburban location. I’ve visited this store on previous occasions and found area parking lots and stores typically frequented […]

Discreet Concealment?

22 Apr 19 “Discreet” Concealment! Carrying pistols concealed in public as you go about your daily business is serious business! A careless moment that inadvertently exposes an otherwise concealed pistol may garner the unwanted attention of a nearby criminal who is eager to forcible wrest the gun from you, or the attention of a snoopy […]

FG42 at Gran Sasso

20 Apr 19 FG42 Nazi Germany’s “Paratrooper Rifle,” or “Fallschirmjägergewehr 42,” was a mid-war attempt by Nazi war planners to develop and deploy a compact, light, select-fire rifle/LMG, chambered for a full-power, long-range cartridge (7.92×57 Mauser, AKA ”8mm”), specifically designed for the needs of paratroopers. Hitler had scant regard for paratroopers, nor for military operations […]

EWR

16 Apr 19 Commercial Flight Update: Yesterday, I flew on a commercial flight, from EWR (Newark, NJ) to MDW (Chicago, Midway) on SW Airlines. I had with me my usual complement of gear (in checked baggage). It was no problem! I informed the ticket-agent, as always, and my luggage went to the TSA screening area. […]

Honor Defense Pistols

I’ve carried my copy of┬áHonor┬áDefense’s HD9CLE pistol for six months. It’s comfortable. It’s reliable. It deftly digests every brand of high-performance ammunition I’ve put through it. HD pistols don’t hiccup, and they don’t break, despite heavy use and lack of maintenance. I’m happy to recommend HD pistols for those reasons alone, but in addition they […]

New Zealand

12 Apr 19 New Zealand As NZ’s Parliament rushes through a nation-wide ban (for everyone but themselves) on an across-the-board (and ever-expanding) list of semi-automatic firearms and normal-capacity magazines, all in the wake of last month’s Mosque shooting in Christchurch, it is now being revealed that the involuntary “Buy-Back Program,” included in this legislation, will […]

Boondocks!

10 Apr 19 Boondocks Academy, Raymond (Jackson), MS Today and tomorrow, we’re conducting a two-day DTI Women’s Defensive Handgun Course at the beautiful 350-acre Bookdocks Academy in Raymond, MS. I was not familiar with this facility until recently! It is fabulous, nearly as expansive as Gunsite! The facility features two sophisticated shoot-houses, numerous covered outdoor […]

“I support the Second Amendment, but…”

8 Apr 19 “I support the Second Amendment, but…” Common refrain of mendacious gun-grabbers! Any time a politician uses the word, “but,” he has effectively erased everything he has just said! I am frustrated with politicians and political groups who pick and choose which parts of our Constitution, particularly our Bill of Rights, they like, […]

“Gun Safety”

6 Apr 19 “During the Bosnian War (1992-1995), when you didn’t own guns, you were literally dead. Many learned that painful lesson, the hard way!” From a student and veteran of fighting in Bosnia “Gun Safety” is the new, and deliberately deceptive, code-word for the forced elimination of the the private ownership of guns in […]

Buy Guns!

5 Apr 19 Buy guns while you still can! “… changes to gun laws and regulations should be determined through legislative process that gives the American public an opportunity to participate, and not be arbitrarily set by a bank.” This from a concerned American bank officer, in response to the current not-so-subtle thrust by Democrat […]

“The Preferred Weapon of Criminals!”

1 Apr 19 “Two things are ‘infinite:’ the Universe, and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the Universe.” Albert Einstein Several decades ago, media liberals (an absurd redundancy) fervently lobbied for a federal ban on “Saturday-Night Special” handguns. SNSs were ambiguously described as “cheap, small, and underpowered,” and those aspects made them “bad,” so […]
