At about four o’clock yesterday afternoon, Googling 'Starbucks Appreciation Day' scared-up about 112k hits. As of about 9pm EST last night, that total climbed to 298k.

"Emily Miller is an attractive, well-educated (Georgetown), well-spoken young woman with a high profile position as a senior editor with the Washington Times. Before that she was the deputy press secretary for both Secretary of State Colin Powell and Condolezza Rice. If someone like her with all of her connections has this much trouble exercising her Constitutional right to own a firearm for her own self-defense in her own home, imagine what it is like for everyone else who isn't as bright, articulate, and connected. If you said, damn near impossible, I think you'd be correct." ...
 

Self-Defense Tip: Make the First Shot Count (video story)

"In many ways, competition shooting techniques aren’t applicable to defensive gun use. For example, I find the distinct lack of 'no shoot' targets deeply worrying. I believe a defensive shooter should re-assess their situation between drawing their firearm and pulling the trigger. With their finger off the trigger. It’s a debatable point. Some gun guys reckon if the gun’s coming out it’s hammer time. Period. But one thing we can all agree on: if the bad guy needs shooting, center mass your target. Which most people don’t, for all kinds of reasons . . ." ...

"This weekend I shot my first AK. There’s a first for everything, I guess. I had shot a Saiga 12, yes—but I’d never shot an AK-style rifle. And I have to say that I’m really impressed. While I liked the Saiga 12, it wouldn’t make my top ten-list for shotguns. But now I’ve carved out a spot for an assault rifle. I’m still not sure how I’m going to explain this one to my wife."

"There’s nothing especially fancy about the SGL 31. The receiver is stamped. The hardware is all plastic. The gun appears to be painted black, but it is an AK, after all, and by-God that’s how they are supposed to be built. Except maybe the plastic part." ...

A Sweeping History of the Mauser C96 Broomhandle Pistol

"It’s one of those guns that turns heads and a great number of shooters over the years, from soldiers to generals from directors to royals, have holstered the unconventional C96 ‘Broomhandle’ Mauser to seemingly elicit this very response from would-be onlookers. Yet, aside from its design choices (and, as we’ll see, flaws), the C96 pistol, chambered in either 7.63x25mm or 9mm Parabellum, was a considered one of the best sidearm options out there when it first debuted in 1896. The reigning high velocity pistol of its day, the world would not see a hotter handgun until the introduction of .357 Magnum cartridge in 1935. And around the turn of the century, it seemed like just about everyone, from Germany to China, was making them." ...

"The SRM 12-series are perhaps the most innovative of shotguns made to-date this century. They're modern, fully-ambidextrous tactical automatic shotguns designed for the Marines but available to all. We don't have any complaints."

"OK, that's not true, we have one hangup: it costs $2,400. They have one vendor and that's what they're charging. That is our complaint. We wish, in our heart of hearts, that these shotguns cost as much as any Mossberg 500. Barring that, any Saiga 12. They're spendy, although to be fair, you can spend more and get less in the shotgun world." ...

"Like many I suspect, I am always looking for ways to pinch a penny and when it comes to my gun life, this thriftiness oftentimes entices me to the back of the gun shop where the old military guns typically lie neglected. It seems to me that too few people know how easily some of these milsurp guns can be modified to make class A hunting rifles, usually for much cheaper than buying a new gun and always twice as rugged. But with old guns, come old calibers, which can present a problem when you go to find ammo ... so here are five surplus calibers that you’ll be able to find without too much of a search. Though these vintage cartridges may have fallen by the wayside, in the field you’ll find they’re are far from obsolete:" ...
