"When reporters panic about gun control, it is time for perspective. Some panicky-sounding reporters portray the loss and thefts of guns from licensed gun dealers ('FFLs' in the trade) as a huge problem, one that leads to violent crimes committed with those stolen guns. But how big is this lost or stolen gun crime problem?"

"Guns do get lost and guns do get stolen. Criminals confess to stealing them whenever possible, and some local gun stores – the place with the big safes and locked storage rooms – occasionally do get robbed by determined criminals, usually employing heavy machinery."

"But important as it is to reduce the number of stolen and lost firearms, the rate of loss and theft is comparatively insignificant. ..." ...

"Last Saturday, the gun ban lobby group 'Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America' held a meeting in a Dallas restaurant. The gun rights advocacy group Texas Open Carry ... took the opportunity to hold a rally in the restaurant parking lot."

"'Writing from the left,' as he describes his propaganda in Forbes, Rick Ungar took exception to the fact that the open carry rally featured . . . open carrying: Ungar wasted no time in making clear that 'writing from the left' means lying through one's teeth, in his 'Texas Gun Bullies Use Semi-Automatics To Terrorize Mothers Against Guns-NRA Remains Silent.'"

"The gun rights discourse has occupied the media spotlight during the past several years owing to the horrific gun violence at Sandy Hook and, most recently, at the D.C. Naval Yard.

"One of the regrettable consequences of the political class’s obsession with gun control legislation (despite the American public not considering guns a significant problem) is that it encourages people and publications that otherwise aren’t political into sharing their oblivious opinions on the matter."

"Such is the case with a November 5th column on the website of Runner’s World magazine. Nestled on a front page that includes an article on 'How Pumpkins Can Help Your Running' and a video titled 'Power Yoga for Runners' is a piece by track athlete Nick Symmonds calling for a ban on handguns and popular semi-automatic rifles." ...
 

Ammo Review: Barnes 300 AAC Blackout 110gr TAC-TX

"Some people say the 300 AAC Blackout round isn’t good for hunting, and they might be right — if they’re using the wrong ammo. Heavier loads have a tendency to fail to expand upon impact. That means less energy is transferred to the target and therefore the shot is less effective. But a quality high velocity round with excellent expansion capability will stop that buck dead in its tracks. Barnes released their 110gr TAC-TX bullet specifically designed for 300 BLK guns earlier this year. And after extensive field testing I can say without a doubt that it’s the perfect hunting round for this caliber. Let me explain why . . ." ...

... "I began interacting with Mr. Robert Dominacki of Springfield Armory, and I noticed that it did take several e-mails to flush out exactly what I should do. Springfield wanted my entire weapon as opposed to just sending in the barrel in order to see if any other part of the gun was malfunctioning."

"... Robert issued a return merchandise authorization ... Springfield paid for the shipment through FedEx, both to the factory and back to me. While Robert told me that it could be up to six weeks, I received it back within a week of receipt by Springfield with a new barrel, tested by their technicians to function just fine with the replacement barrel, a match grade 4.5″ .45 ACP just like I sent to them." ...

"... I wish I could say that I spent my weekend at the shooting range, but right now I’m in Baltimore, MD on business."

"That means when I go running in the morning I’m not carrying concealed and instead have to run with only my tactical pen. It will be nice to go home soon to a state that cares about self-preservation and not a state that wants to keep people unarmed (which is always a sign of a dangerous government.)"

"Since I didn’t go shooting yesterday I spent a lot of time reading and researching. And one topic that keeps popping up lately is how several law enforcement agencies are now switching back to the 9mm. The fact is, law enforcement in Minnesota, Iowa, South Dakota, and Colorado are just a few of the places switching." ...

It’s high adventure true to Bracken’s trademark 'bleeding-edge dystopian thriller' tradition, full of memorable characters, excitement, and importantly, an unbending commitment to liberty. And as with his other books, the author’s real-world experience as a former SEAL, shipbuilder and sailor ensures the technical details in the fictional experience ring true." ...

"Bloomberg reports that Texas Armoring, a San Antonio-based company specializing in armoring vehicles for the super-rich (the biggest in the world), is enjoying an unprecedented sales boom."

"Currently, they armor about 200 vehicles per year. In the next five years, the company's CEO, Trent Kimbell, expects that number to double."

"'If you’re rich and need protection, you are going to come to us to armor your vehicle,' Kimbell says. The part about being rich makes sense. Including the vehicle, the low-end cost is $80,000, the high-end is $500,000. Protection itself ranges from being fortified against handguns all the way up to repelling an AK-47 and M-16." ...

"More and more Americans are spending money to get ready for an uncertain future -- gathering food, water, tools, and skills to help them weather anything from a hurricane to a pandemic. Contrary to images of deluded or gun-obsessed "lone wolves," many preppers are average consumers reacting to concrete worries, and their way of thinking is spreading, fueling an emerging lifestyle trend. That lifestyle is generating demand for a broad spectrum of products offering survival -- or even comfort -- when large-scale systems go down."
