In the good ol’ days, back before social media, before the World Wide Web and even before disco and unleaded gasoline, the number “1911” used in reference to a pistol meant a USGI M1911 or M1911A1 or one of a handful of Colt’s commercial spinoffs. With a few notable exceptions, you generally knew the writer meant an all-steel, semi-automatic pistol with a single-action trigger and a barrel 5 inches in length.

In response to William Ivester’s letter to the editor on Monday about the Second Amendment, I ask that he look again at the amendment. It is clever to pick phrases out of context, but that is misguided. Amendment 2 in its entirety states, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

Sales of guns and ammunition in the United States "have dropped precipitously since Election Day," The Washington Post reports, but some gun dealers, like Cleveland's Kevin Jones, are having a very different experience. The reason, The Post says: "Gun clubs and shops that cater to black and LGBT clients say there has been an uptick in interest in firearms since November among those who fear that racial and gender-based violence could increase during Donald Trump's presidency."

In 2016, break-ins were at an all time high. In 2012 there were 4,340 guns stolen during burglaries. In 2016, there were 7,488 up 30 percent from 2015.

Introducing a New .257 Wildcat Cartridge: The 2Fity-Hillbilly

The allure of the .257 Roberts hit me early and lasted long. I’ve owned a dozen or more rifles chambered in that cartridge. The problem was, I never had one I really liked. And, I never owned one that shot outstandingly well. One problem with the “Bob” as it is often called, is that factory ammunition is loaded to an anemic level. This is because early on when the .257 Roberts was in its wildcat stage, before Remington legitimized it in 1934, lots of rifles of questionable strength were chambered for it. Because of this, SAAMI – the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute – mandated .257 Roberts operating pressures be kept low.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American... The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state government, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people. — Tench Coxe, Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788.
