Meandering into the world of gun barrels can be a bit intimidating for a novice. Especially when deciding on whether or not you need a “bull barrel.” For starters, there is not much consistency for the term, outside of it being one that describes any barrel that is heavier than a standard gun barrel. There are not even any technical specifications for a bull barrel. Never fear, SSUSA is here to help. Here we look at the origin of bull barrels, and the benefits to having one on your gun.

Shelby Township police are investigating the robbery of a gun shop in the early morning hours of Dec. 1.

Security video revealed three suspects wearing dark clothing broke into the rear entrance of Patriots Ammo & Arms on Van Dyke Avenue south of 24 Mile Road at about 4:20 a.m. The suspects took several firearms, according to Shelby Township Capt. Jason Schmittler, who wouldn't reveal how many weapons were stolen or what type of weaponry was removed. He did say most of the weapons were listed as handguns.

Nuri Yousif, the owner of Patriots Ammo & Arms, said the suspects got past two security gates and a double deadbolt on the back door. Yousif said it appears they used a battering ram to get in.
 

FL: First person charged under Florida 'red flag' law found guilty

The first person to have his guns confiscated under Florida’s 2018 “red flag” law has been found guilty over his refusal to voluntarily surrender the weapons.

Smith owned an AR-15 rifle and a .22-caliber rifle which Broward deputies seized after his arrest in March 2018 on charges of firing six shots at a vehicle being driven by his best friend, according to reports.

Submitter's note: Very confusing article. Were his guns seized because of chargers related to his arrest? If he was arrested, his guns were not seized because of a red flag law.

Naval station's gun restrictions didn't stop shooter but did stop sailors from arming themselves

U.S. Naval Air Station Pensacola in Florida was put on lockdown early Friday morning as shots rang out in what would be the second mass shooting on a stateside military base this week.

According to The Associated Press, three were killed and 12 more injured when an aviation student opened fire on his peers during a classroom training session.

The shooter, who has since been identified as Saudi Arabian national Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, was quickly neutralized -- not by U.S. Armed Forces, but by two Escambia County Sheriff's deputies during a standoff which ensued following law enforcement's rapid response to the attack.

Why on earth would the sailors on base require local law enforcement response, you might ask?

Red dot sights, which would more accurately be called “holographic reflector sights,” are definitely the way of the future. It is likely that they will become the dominant sighting system for handguns and long guns, when not equipped with a telescopic optic.

The county is going on record as supporting Second Amendment rights, but don’t call it a “sanctuary.” On Thursday night, the Surry Board of Supervisors passed its own version of the resolution that has been sweeping through counties across Virginia since last month’s legislative elections. However, Surry’s resolution stopped short of calling the county a “sanctuary” as those passed by others, including next-door Sussex County and Dinwiddie County, declared themselves.

8 Great Shotguns You’ve Never Heard Of

Some great shotguns escape mass notice. Maybe they’re ahead of their time, or they’re not heavily marketed, or maybe they were overshadowed by other models. Whatever the case, some really good guns remain under the radar forever. I’ve been thinking about that this fall, as my companion in the field has been a Blaser F16, a terrific field O/U that hasn’t made much of a dent in the U.S. market yet. That seems to be its fate, and the fate of several other excellent guns past and present, all of which (well, maybe with the exception of number 3) are well worth ferreting out and adding to your collection. Here are eight overlooked shotguns: three currently in production and five no longer being made.

The owner said he wanted to open a range in Kearney but found it to be an expensive endeavor. He discovered the virtual programs and decided that is something he wanted to start in central Nebraska. He hopes kids will come in with their parents to learn about how to handle a firearm.

Deer hunters in Illinois are hoping for better luck this weekend. The Illinois Department of Natural Resources says the first weekend of deer hunting season saw fewer hunters bag a deer.

Western Illinois had several counties in the top 5 for deer hunters, but southern Illinois’ Randolph County saw the most deer taken at around 1500.

Under the City of New York’s so-called justice reforms, suspects will no longer be held in jail for carrying weapons beginning in January. Offenders found in possession of a wide array of weapons – including guns, switchblades, swords, machetes, and stun guns – will instead be issued a “desk appearance ticket” and “set free,” the New York City Police Benevolent Association (PBA) pointed out in a Facebook post on Tuesday.

For many deer hunters, the opening day of firearms deer season is the most highly anticipated day of the year. Most hunters would agree that opening day is their best chance to bring home the venison. The increased hunting pressure of opening day is also the signal for deer to go into survival mode and move quickly into their safe areas. Success on opening day is important, as the opening-day harvest numbers account for a large portion of the total annual deer harvest.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Wherever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any colour or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction. — St. George Tucker, in his edition of 'Blackstone's Commentaries,' 1:300 (1803).
