"Yesterday’s debut of the Second Amendment Foundation’s 'Gun Owners Against Illegal Mayors' spread across the Internet with shockwave ferocity, especially on gun rights forums, where gleeful gun owners are cheering."

"SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb may have struck the right chord and a raw nerve at the same time with his advertisement that he plans to run in magazines and newspapers. His group’s exposure of the criminal misconduct of so many members of an organization that has endeavored to demonize and criminalize law-abiding gun owners may be pure political theater, but it is getting rave reviews from its intended audience." ...
 

ATF notice on disability information collection highlights absurd injustice

... "... As far as getting firearms rights recognized for people prohibited by federal law from possessing a gun, the bureau with the billion (plus) dollar budget can’t lift a finger. While federal law provides a mechanism for prohibited persons to apply to have their prohibition lifted, a congressional appropriations 'Catch-22' tactic in use by committed anti-gunners since 1992 will not allow ATF to use federal funds to process a request. What we see as a result are outrageous injustices, like the case of Thomas Lamar Bean, who due to inadvertently having some ammunition in his truck when he went to Mexico, has been branded a prohibited person for life with ... no ability to have anything done about his petition." ...

"The anti-gun New York Times was caught in a demonstrably careless bit of journalism when it editorialized Tuesday about the alleged shortcomings of the proposed Sportsmen’s Act of 2012, so in addition to eating turkey on Thursday, it’s having to digest a little bit of crow."

"Called to task by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the Times has added a correction to the bottom of its editorial, which still opposes the Act. ..." ...
 

Retro Review: Enfield Number 4, Mk II

"When it comes to old battle rifles, the Garand, Mauser and Mosin tend to get all the love, but ever since the day I first saw the movie, 'Breaker Morant,' I've wanted an Enfield. It was the first bolt-action, multi-round battle rifle the British ever fielded, and they continued to field it in one form or another until well after the Korean War. Think about that for a second. That would be like instead of the M1 Garand going to shore at Inchon in 1950, U.S. Soldiers carrying the same Krag-Jorgensen rifles Teddy Roosevelt carried up San Juan Hill in the Spanish American War. It wasn't until the FN FAL came along that the British switched to a semi-automatic, and even then Enfields were retained as sniper rifles. ..." ...

"I have always (okay, for about the last 3 months) wanted to be a high speed, low drag operator. I find myself looking at plate carriers for hours online and intently focusing on the perfect storage methods for paracord. So when Chris Baker at Next Intent Tactical offered me their Multi Mount for T&E, I jumped at the chance. Here was something that could take my operator game to the next level. When one optic is good, two optics must be better, and the Multi Mount lets me have my cake and eat it too." ...
 

Ask Foghorn: What’s a Good Beginner Scope for Long Range Shooting?

"Reader Luke writes:
I’ve been reading TTAG for awhile now and enjoy your posts on long range shooting for beginners, among others, and was looking for some advice. I inherited a Winchester model 70 xtr sporter chambered in .264 Winchester magnum. It’s a great rifle in good shape, but I would like to upgrade the scope from the old Bushnell 3-9×40 that’s on it. I’d like to start pushing the rifle beyond 100 yards and gain confidence to make a 300 yard shot, as everything I’ve read about the caliber says that it’s adequate for deer sized game out to 500 yards. Do you have any advice on what sort of scope I should look at and what kind of fundamentals I should practice in order to get to that point? ..." ...

"The M14 was the last U.S. standard issue, select-fire infantry rifle chambered for a full-power .30 caliber class cartridge. Less than ten years after Uncle Sam issued the M14 to the troops, the M16 succeeded the 'United States Rifle, 7.62 mm, M14.' And yet the M14 remains in service, for three reasons: durability, reliability and accuracy. Springfield Armory’s semi-automatic M1A is all that and a bag of chips and you don’t have to enlist to get our hands on one . . ." ...

"300 AAC Blackout has been on the market for a while now, and for all that time the only thing Hornady has been producing for that market is a 300 Whisper cartridge. Technically they’re just about the same damn thing, but branding makes all the difference. Now it appears that Hornady has finally jumped on the 300 AAC Blackout bandwagon, but it seems they’ve simply changed the label and not the mixture. ..."

"When VestGuard UK announced its £49.99 (about $80) Ballistic iPad panel we wasted no time in requesting a unit to sample. The company was kind enough to send us one across the pond and we did what any gadget- and firearm-loving nerds would do: put it squarely in the crosshairs. Can the iPad really stop small arms fire when augmented with a tiny little sheet and what does that iPad look like after being on the receiving end of both 9mm and .357 Magnum rounds? Trust us, you’ll want to click through and see for yourself." ...

"Winter is here! Or if it isn’t yet, it’s right around the corner. More often than not this means inclement weather, rain, snow, hail, cold, etc. Many hunting seasons are still going and many have yet to start. If you’re one of those people who braves the cold to have a go at ducks and geese, or if you’re bundled up on a deer stand, or tracking elk through a foot of snow, you might want to consider some maintenance to your rifle or shotgun before you go out into the field. Proper maintenance can avoid devastating jams, inaccurate shots, and destructive rust."

Cold greatly affects the accuracy of your rifle. Both the barrel itself and the ammunition can be affected by the cold." ...

"The way we hold our carbines has changed over the years but the gear been slower to adapt. Many users are squaring their bodies to the target, pushing their support hands out closer to the muzzle to gain more control and moving the carbine in toward their centerline while keeping the strong side arm tucked into their side. Longer hand guards have evolved to accommodate different support hand grips but less has been done to address the issues with strong hand positioning on the pistol grip in a 'modern' stance." ...

"When Ruger sent me an LCP with a Crimson Trace Laserguard, I was most excited. I've seen a movie or two, so I know how this works. You pull the gun and a blazing laser puts a glowing red circle on your intended target that is replaced by a smoking hole the instant you pull the trigger. No more aiming."

"Well, not exactly. The most things Hollywood gets to interpret, using the laser, is a bit more complicated." ...

"'Ten Shots Quick!' A pistol with catchy slogans and trademark looks, the Savage Model 1907 nearly became the most popular pistol in America. Though Savage has done things right for more than a hundred years, their foray into the pistol market is largely forgotten. Today, the Model 1907 may be seen more as a half-retro/half art-deco antique than a functional piece of firearms history, but its creators aspired for so much more." ...

Stockman earned a 77 percent score on The New American’s 'Conservative Index' (a predecessor of the Freedom Index) during his congressional term (1995-97), among the five highest. This is noteworthy because at the time the GOP was being bullied toward the political Left by Republican Speaker Newt Gingrich.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
As an individual, I believe, very strongly, that handguns should be banned and that there should be stringent, effective control of other firearms. However, as a judge, I know full well that the question of whether handguns can be sold is a political one, not an issue of products liability law, and that this is a matter for the legislatures, not the courts. The unconventional theories advanced in this case (and others) are totally without merit, a misuse of products liability laws. — Judge Buchmeyer, Patterson v. Gesellschaft, 1206 F.Supp. 1206, 1216 (N.D. Tex. 1985)
