An interview with a lethal man

"Massad Ayoob is arguably one of the most lethal men around, in fact he even trains others in the use of deadly force. Many people cannot distinguish the difference between 'dangerous' and 'lethal.' When they hear that someone is an expert in handgun combat, urban rifle, knife/counter-knife, close-quarters battle and stressfire shotgun, they automatically think of someone to be feared. ..." ...

"Q: In your book, The Truth About Self Protection, you say we have the right to protect ourselves. How do you respond to those who say it only promotes the 'cycle of violence'?"

"A: I refer them to Biology 101. When the predator chases down, destroys, and consumes its prey without intervention, the cycle of its violence continues. When the given predator is taken out of circulation, then by definition, its cycle of violence is ended for the duration. The criminal is the actor, his prey merely the reactor, and the cycle is dependent on the action of the predator." ...

"Robert Bonelli, 24, a troubled young adult with a collection of Columbine memorabilia in his home, opened fire Sunday on shoppers at a mall in New York with an AK-47 clone assault rifle."

"Where did he get the gun? Wherever he wanted to. On the same day he walked into the Best Buy store at the Hudson Valley Mall, gun sellers across America were offering weapons so powerful and advanced that they have been the subject of recent global security complaints by the United States government." ...

Remington 700 Classic Deluxe -- A bolt-action classic gets a tasteful facelift

"Ever had an interest in designing your own rifle? Ever think about changing the look and feel of one you already own? Most of us have thought about it, and a lot of people have done it. I used to imagine the "perfect" Remington 700, a rifle that has stood the tests of time and trends. It's been available in nearly 50 different variations, the most successful of which has remained the 700 BDL."

"It's an ordinary-looking rifle in a classic design, including a raised cheekpiece and comb, ebony fore-end tip and grip cap and barrel-mounted iron sights. They tend to shoot very well right out of the box, and I've always been fond of them. But I've never kept the ones I've owned for very long; I've traded them or had them customized." ...

"We are nearly at 80 degrees north, well inside the Arctic Circle, when we spot a polar bear. We edge the yacht closer to the solitary granite rock where, under the soft glow of the midnight sun and framed by purple peaks, wide blue glaciers and a cold black sea, we gaze at this fearless creature tearing at a seal. Occasionally it turns its great head and gives us an icy stare."

"No amount of National Geographic Channel will prepare you for your first encounter with a polar bear in the wild. Your first response is likely to be a pump of adrenalin, followed by a loosening of the bowel." ...

"In Svalbard, off the coast of which we are sailing, polar bears and how not to get eaten by them is taken seriously. Attacks are infrequent but nearly always fatal and you are required by law to carry a high-powered rifle when venturing outdoors." [emphasis added] ...
 

Pocket Rocket -- The tiny but terrific .204 Ruger

"Hornady and Ruger, which have combined to give us such excellent cartridges as the .480 Ruger and the new .17 HMR, have come up with yet a third, and it is a true delight for varmint hunters of all stripes (although not for varmints of all stripes; they will probably detest it). Called the .204 Ruger, it’s a .20-caliber cartridge."

"The .20 caliber is not a new idea. Back in the 1960s, there were .20- and .17- and even .14-caliber wildcats. These were loosely referred to as sub-calibers. If you turn to page 260 of P.O. Ackley’s Handbook for Shooters and Reloaders (published in 1962), you will see a wildcat called the .20/222 and this comment: 'An even better cartridge might be made by necking down the .222 Remington Magnum.' And that is exactly what Hornady has done." ...

"Pistols, rifles, shotguns - Arizonans soon could load them up and tote them into the bar or nightclub of their choice."

"In a latest tribute to the Wild West, Arizona legislators have come up with a plan to legalize loaded weapons in places that serve alcohol."

"Senate Bill 1363 breezed through the Senate Judiciary Committee on a 5-2 vote Monday and appears headed toward a promising future in the full Senate and House."

"To help ease its passage, lawmakers have added a twist: Arizonans would have to avoid actually drinking an alcoholic beverage while carrying the loaded weapon."

"The measure would apply to restaurants, bars and nightclubs that served alcohol." ...

"A postcard from the Ithaca Gun Company outlining some new products brought to mind a flood of memories owning and using an Ithaca Model 37 for more years than I want to admit."

"Most repeating shotguns, pumps and semi-automatics eject spent shotgun hulls horizontally to the right. This is a major disadvantage for the left-handed shooter. This is well beyond the nuisance and distraction factor, as the hull is crossing in front of the left-handed shooter's line of sight. Both right- and left-handed shooters benefited from Ithaca's bottom loading and ejecting action." ...

"A jewelry store owner takes action after some would-be robbers put a gun to his head, but instead of handing over the jewels, he pulled out a gun."

"The owner of Estate Jewelry thought he was about to make a sweet Valentines day sale but instead, he became the victim of a horrifying ordeal. His store was about to be robbed, but the tables turned quickly."

"'They came in with guns and pointed a gun to my head. They wanted to rob my store. It is as simple as that. I defended myself,' says Barry Fixler, the would-be robbery victim." ...

"With not one but two assault rifles pointed at his head, Fixler says he was able to lunge away grabbing hold of his personal handgun firing off several rounds. Once the smoke cleared, one suspect was hit and the second man got away." ...

"Alexis later conceded that he made the bogus call while on duty March 1, 2001, but not before it triggered a massive hunt for a nonexistent shooter, ultimately leading to the arrest several days later of Clifford Montrond, then 19, who spent nine days in jail before being exonerated."

"Like any legal issue, each of these cases deserves to be reviewed separately. Their frequency, however, raises concerns in two ways."

FULL TEXT BELOW:

The 48-hour waiting period for pistols should not apply to sales by those who are not federally licensed firearms dealers, a Senate panel decided Monday.

The bill would clarify language in an existing law that requires any gun dealer to wait 48 hours after a sale before delivering a pistol. Supporters of the bill have said the waiting period places an undue burden on private sales between gun owners.

The measure would mean people who are not licensed dealers could sell guns, even at gun shows, and not have to wait 48 hours before delivering the weapons to buyers.

The Judiciary Committee unanimously sent HB1189 to the full Senate.

"When Tanzanians strongly disputed the private sale of firearms a couple of years ago, they probably had in mind the fear of ‘wrong hands’ grabbing the weapons and their worry is now justified."

"An investigation carried by The Guardian has established that legally owned firearms are hired to criminals and have become a 'good' source of income in Dar es Salaam."

"Our investigation has also established that information leading to clandestine deals on the misuse of firearms, has already reached the police, who are now spending sleepless nights, trying to work out stringent measures before any ownership of a firearm is approved." ...
