... "Among these misconceptions being repeated: that no Wide Receiver guns 'walked' to Mexico because they were all controlled deliveries; that no one was killed; that the Mexican government was fully informed; that RFID tracking devices were placed in all the guns; and that the program was shut down at the first sign of danger."

Gun Review: Smith & Wesson M&P9 Shield

"The market for guns is growing faster than the national debt. Paradoxically, the guns themselves are shrinking. Powerful handguns are getting smaller, easier to carry and less expensive. The Smith & Wesson M&P9 Shield continues this trend. It’s a pistol trimmed down to a size often reserved for weaker cartridges like the .380, but it maintains many of the ruffles and flourishes of its larger siblings in the M&P series. That’s all well and good, except that there are hidden costs that can outweigh the benefits of proliferating pistol shrinkage . . ." ...

"While enjoying a lovely dinner in Newport, RI with TTAG’s impresario, the conversation drifted to firearm technologies that could still use some improvement. We agreed that the magazine has always been one of the weak points of any semi-auto pistol platform. Feed lips get bent, springs weaken and can rust, schmutz can enter and cause all sorts of long- and short-term problems with functioning and reliability. Anyone who is serious about their carry equipment knows that you need to maintain your mags and should have a spare close at hand. Even then, they screw up occasionally. So what can be done about this state of affairs? . . ." ...

Ten Things You Can Do While Carrying A Gun With The Galco Ankle Glove

"The Galco Ankle Glove is the Cadillac of ankle holsters. As if anyone could ever make that analogy. The foundation (the part that actually wraps around your ankle) is made of thick neoprene material. This is the same material that’s used to make wetsuits for divers and cold water surfers. It’s thick, cushy, durable, and comfortable. Our first thought was to take up combat swimming, but common sense prevailed and we figured the leather holster pouch (and gun) may not fare as well in 65 feet of salt water. Baywatch lifeguards could use this piece of equipment as they rarely seem to enter the water." ...

Lessons Learned from a Primary Gun Failure

... "Well, while shooting my Smith & Wesson Shield at the range last Sunday, I had a failure, which you can read about here if you’re interested. The short version is that on the second round of the first mag, the Shield failed to go into battery, and the slide was completely locked up. Since the Shield is my primary gun for the summer, it certainly made me stop and think. What if this had happened when I really needed my gun? After only one shot, my one and only gun was now a rather expensive club."

"First lesson learned: Any gun can fail, even if the gun has always been flawless. I already knew this of course, but now I really know. If that makes sense." ...

"Precision shooting is a pretty broad category. Or maybe it’s a really, really narrow category as the word 'precision' denotes an elite quality that not everything can possess. Are we talking long range precision shooting? Speed precision? Competition precision? Camp Perry? Optics or iron sights? All are viable questions, and outside of hunting big game (Never taken a whitetail, muley or elk past 300 yards) and long-range plinking (700 yards is my max so far) I’ll be honest and say my experience with the above generic categories beyond the hunting realm is admittedly limited." ...

"The Republican majority’s vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of congress is historic. No Attorney General has ever been so explicitly condemned by the Congress."

"But the contempt citation is a hollow political theater. It has no substance – zero." ...

"And after Obama Justice Department and White House lawyers offered to defuse the situation this week by literally showing previously private documents about the political response to the scandal to the House committee – but without turning them over – there is no doubt that the contempt citation is a purely spiteful, political act."

"Q: Does the Obama administration intend to 'force gun control and a complete ban on all weapons for U.S. citizens' through a United Nations treaty?"

"A: No. The administration plans to negotiate a treaty to regulate the international export and import of weapons. It says that it won’t support any treaty that regulates the domestic transfer or ownership of weapons, or that infringes on the Second Amendment." ...

"Brady Campaign President Dan Gross today issued this statement:"

"'Senator Rand Paul has launched an all-out, sneak attack on the authority of the District of Columbia to decide for itself the best way to protect its citizens from the ravages of gun violence. Quite simply, Rand Paul is promoting the gun lobby's agenda and if he and the gun lobby have their way, innocent people will die. All this is in direct conflict with the principles of local prerogatives and market freedom that he regularly espouses — when the subject is not guns. Rand Paul is nothing less than a hypocrite and his actions as a senator are a threat to our communities.'" ...

Barb, Marti, Julie, Lacey and Shelley set out in the wee hours. 3 hours later they returned with no kills but had funny video of them blowing the coyote call.

"The case once again shed a light on the city government’s propensity for firearm confiscation."

Prosecutors later dropped all charges against Houston. Despite this, the Orleans Parish District Attorney’s Office and New Orleans Police Department refused Houston’s requests to have his firearm returned.

I filed an amicus brief on behalf of AWARE (Arming Women Against Rape & Endangerment) in this case, and also wrote a law review article on the subject (Nonlethal Self-Defense, (Almost Entirely) Nonlethal Weapons, and the Rights To Keep and Bear Arms and Defend Life, so I’m especially pleased by the result.
