In the last days of 1955 Remington and Smith & Wesson unveiled the most powerful of handgun cartridges for its day — the .44 Remington Magnum. Then, very quickly in 1956 Sturm, Ruger and Company introduced their .44 Magnum Blackhawk. A slightly increased frame size over .357 Magnum Blackhawks was required to accommodate the bigger .44 cartridge.

Winchester produced their Model 61 rifle for the .22 WMR beginning in 1960, while Savage introduced its famous Model 24 – a combination rifle for .22 WMR and .410 in an over-under configuration.

From the first model offered by Samuel Colt in the 1830s until the early 2000s, the heart of Colt's Manufacturing was the revolver. Colt made its name with its innovative revolving cylinder, first seen in the 1836 Paterson, and revolvers were a principal part of the company's product offerings until 2005, when the last limited-production models rolled out of Colt's factory. Now, Colt is reviving its legendary "Snake Gun" lineup, and the latest re-introduction in 2021 is the Colt Anaconda chambered in .44 Mag.

Sharon Spivey-Oliver, a 54-year-old Black woman, felt vulnerable while closing up her business in the suburbs to head home in Detroit. Her guard was raised more often with the presidential election approaching.

Spivey-Oliver didn’t want to be “easy bait” for a would-be mugger or someone who saw her Black skin as a target. She and her husband had never owned guns before, but it felt more dangerous to live and work in 2020. They decided to purchase handguns and obtain concealed pistol licenses.

President Joe Biden called for an “assault weapons” ban following Monday’s shooting attack at the Boulder, Colorado grocery store.

Politico reported Biden urging the Senate to take action on H.R. 8 and H.R. 1446, the former of which would create universal background checks and the latter of which would expand the length of time a background check can last.

SC: South Carolina Senator Suggests Everyone be Made Militia Member

A South Carolina senator has a proposal to make sure no federal law can ever seize guns — make everyone over 17 who can legally own a gun a member of a militia. South Carolina's constitution allows the governor to call up an “unorganized militia" of any “able bodied male citizens” between ages 18 and 45. State Sen. Tom Corbin's proposal would automatically expand membership to everyone who is over 17 and could own a gun.

FBI’s Shadow Gun Bans Threaten First And Second Amendment Rights

For several years the FBI has been operating a shadow gun ban regime whereby Americans who are not prohibited from possessing firearms under federal law are being denied their Second Amendment rights without due process. This extralegal practice was brought to light again in recent weeks in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit case Turaani v. Wray. The case revealed that the FBI’s current administration of the National Instant Criminal Background Check System amounts to a may-issue gun purchasing scheme that is incompatible with the proper adjudication of a Constitutional right.

According to White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, Biden is considering executive action on gun control. “The way that he sees it is that there a number of levers that any president of the United States can use," Psaki told reporters. "Including working through legislation, including executive action...there’s an ongoing process and I think we feel we have to work on multiple levels at the same time.”

Gun control advocates are making a new attempt to force the gun industry to comply with California’s unique law requiring individual identifiers on all bullet casings, a mandate that has been toothless since it was approved in 2007. The law requires gun manufacturers to adopt micro-stamping technology on new types of handguns introduced in California.

After two years of litigation over a botched computer program to register so-called “assault weapons” in California, a settlement has been reached between the state and all parties involved, the Second Amendment Foundation revealed today. The case is known as Sharp v. Becerra. In 2016, the California Legislature created a new “assault weapon” classification requiring registration. But there was a problem with the online registration process that prevented gun owners from actually complying before the July 1, 2018 deadline, so a lawsuit was filed by several parties including SAF, the Firearms Policy Coalition, Calguns Foundation, Firearm Policy Foundation and the Madison Society Foundation, along with several private citizens.

How to Choose the Right Handgun Red Dot Mounting System

One size does not fit all when it comes to mounting a red-dot optic on a pistol. Bases on aftermarket units are not necessarily identical—so-called footprints—and the pattern milled into the slide of guns made to accept them varies by manufacturer, sometimes model. Adapters and plates remedy the conflict, but the number of incorrect combinations is dizzying. Shooting Illustrated contacted the experts to help clear up the confusion.
