The most fun you can have

with your clothes on. Okay, that phrase refused to stay where it belongs regardless of its limited applicability here. What I am talking about looks like a TON OF FUN, though. I have been hankering for and looking at various ways of having a carbine I could shoot inexpensively AND quietly. Quiet is nice for several reasons. #1 – It is neighborly. I live in a rural area where my neighbors are mostly shooters, accustomed to sight-in, target and hunting shots taking place, BUT they are also very appreciative of the peace and quiet we have most of the time. There is no GOOD reason for modern firearms to be so dang LOUD. #2 – Good hearing protection is bulky […]

The Shooters Almanac 2020

A Guide To 2A Life, Needs Your Support ~ VIDEOS Ammoland Inc.Posted on October 9, 2019 by John Crump Opinion U.S.A. -(Ammoland.com)- The Shooters Almanac 2020 is a project that will cover the history of the Second Amendment (laws, Individuals, Organizations), and list firearms community and industry events throughout the year. The goal is to make people more aware of their rights and motivate them to get involved in gun-rights activism. The Shooters Almanac is the brainchild of Gun Websites. Gun Websites designed it to be a 68-page pocket-sized book. They will publish the book in full color, and they will manufacture it domestically in California. “We have a lot of experiences over the years with the industry events […]

contemplating a second un-civil war

The American Thinker published the essay below on a second ‘civil war’. This topic comes up frequently of late mostly, I think, from conservative gun owners who figure the anti-gun crowd will be seriously, completely outgunned. Maybe. Maybe not. No plan survives contact with the enemy A second American civil war is nothing to look forward to By William Marbury In the excellent film Young Winston, Carl Foreman put the following words, presumably on the basis of something Churchill himself had written, in the mouth of a young Winston Churchill, speaking to the House of Commons in 1901: I have frequently been surprised, since I have been in this House, to hear with what composure, and how glibly, Members, and […]

Area Study

You can have food, water, guns and ammo, medical supplies, water filtration systems, a $20,000 solar panel array, and lots of other “stuff”… But if you lack the ability to maintain situational awareness, you are sabotaging all your efforts at being prepared. You will be at the mercy of the unknown. You will experience a major “fog of war” that will slow down your decision-making. A lack of information — and the inability to produce intelligence — is likely to lead to a poor outcome. Because you’re not really prepared to operate in the environment that you’re going to inherit. It’s time for some self-reflection: What’s your plan to gather intelligence information in real-time during a disaster? How, specifically, are […]

assault on weapons missed by a mile

If you listen to lamestream media or political beasts, banning and collecting every AR-15 will make the world a safe place. That is worse than incorrect. Here I will focus on one aspect of the ridiculousness. The FBI released its 2018 crime statistics – see the table below. ALL RIFLES, included the horrid AR-15, account for 2.9% of the homocides. The FBI did not single out any particular style of rifle, but if they did, the hugely versatile and popular modern sporting rifle would not likely be a blip on the stats board. Why in heaven’s name would it be such a target for the gun banners? Because for over 40 years it has proven itself to be an effective […]

Beto bomb graphics

My post of September 15th was about this dope who thinks he belongs on the world stage running on gun confiscation as a core program of the future workers paradise. When he tells his audience of socialists who are completely ignorant of the repeated and complete failures of that political system, they cheer. The simpleton loves that cheering stuff. He is even selling T-shirts to the adoring dim-bulbs. I am not the only one noticing that Beto’s blunt confession of the end game is hurting the Democrat party. Go back to the Beto Bomb post to see the video clip where his flock cheers him on with his confiscation talk. […]

Beto bomb

I do not expect him to last in this campaign, but he was stupid enough to say out loud what the rest of the clowns are thinking. Even if I had a television, I would not be watching any of the Democratic Party circus. I understand it perfectly well from what I read. Of course they want us disarmed and compliant. How to get from here to there is the only part they are willing to debate. In this video we get clips of the guy who ran from the scene of his drunk driving accident where he ran over two children. Another above-the-law priveleged ruler. Yeah. That’s what we need. […]

DEAR MR. SECURITY AGENT

WHEN IT COMES TO GUN CONFISCATION… Posted by Matt Bracken Dear Mr. Security Agent… Federal, state, or local. You, the man or woman with the badge, the sworn LEO or FLEA and those who inhabit the many law enforcement niches in between and on all sides. This essay is directed to you, because in the end, how this turmoil about gun control turns out will depend largely upon your decisions and actions over the coming months and years. Why is this essay titled Dear Mr. Security Agent, when it dwells mainly upon the media and coastal-dwelling urban liberals and their Utopian belief in the benefits of new gun control laws in the United States? Mr. Security Agent will protest […]

disarming us – the perpetual effort

Totalitarian governments cannot exist where the populace is well armed. Our right to life, liberty and property comes not from a constitution widely ignored by our governments, but by the threat of defensive violence they cannot ignore.  This contest between those who would rule and those who want to be left alone is perpetual. Getting soft in the head is the first step towards slavery. Don’t do it. There is an excellent article in American Partisan describing the latest disarmament scheme currently going by the moniker “Red Flag Laws”. That site, by the way, is on my regular news reading route. As you can see below, they do present some great articles. – Ted – Seeing “RED” Posted by […]

Gun control … again.

I cannot share this good article without pointing out that the “mass shootings” inspiring the “gun control” conversation are almost ALL completely staged events with complicit politicians and presstitutes. I have gone to more than a little effort to document them. Scroll down The Bitterroot Bugle’s right hand column to “False Flags” and “Admitted False Flags”. I did not make this stuff up. The evidence is SOLID. However, PRETENDING that these shootings took place, the arguments fall apart ANYWAY. – Ted In Calls for More Gun Control, Facts Refute Media & Anti-Gunners Ammoland Inc.Posted on August 6, 2019 by Dave Workman Millions of law-abiding citizens own semi-auto rifles, and they harmed nobody over the past weekend.

Arm Thy Neighbor

Ignatius Piazza lived in a very high-end Silicon Valley neighborhood when a carload of thugs rolled through shooting the place up for amusement. The terrifying moments of defenselessness inspired him to arm himself, train, and eventually create his own training academy, Front Sight Firearms Training Institute. It also inspired him to purchase a large number of inexpensive, utilitarian, peasant-friendly semi-auto carbines that he could share with his neighbors when the time finally came that they wished to participate in self- and community defense. Matt Bracken suggests we all consider that neighborly, foresighted approach as part of our preparing strategies. In my neck of the woods there are probably more guns and ammo than food stockpiles. Nevertheless, the one sentence that […]

Gilroy gun free zone

Wait! It turns out that a shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival was not possible. The Gilroy Government Geniuses defined that possiblity away with the stroke of their pens. … Either that or they guaranteed the law abiding would be defenseless.

great handgun ammo test

AmmoToGo.com published the results of an excellent, thorough and hugely informative defensive handgun ammunition test. I have never seen one better; rarely one even close. Quite noteworthy is that a bullet design may be excellent in one caliber but perform poorly in another. Velocity is an interesting factor, but penetration and expanded diameter are more important. Anybody with a chronograph can give you the former. It is normally listed on the box and in promotional literature. Only shooting into ballistic gel provides the latter. The best test fires bullets through simulated winter clothes into ballistic gel. AmmoToGo.co did exactly that with this test. In addition to their great knowledge base, they include good prices on ammunition you can order […]

good Kiwis vs bad Kiwis

Whether it was a staged event rather than real has been debated on the Internet, but the Christchirch shooting event was all the excuse ruling elites needed to pass draconian gun bans and an incredibly expensive program they call “gun buyback”. As one commentator notes, the government never owned the affected guns, thus cannot buy them back. Worse than the semantic failure is the program’s realities. The politicians rushed their anti-gun legislation through in a few days – thereby avoiding organized resistance. It was unsurprisingly already written up when the ‘trigger event’ took place, though the legislators don’t mention that part. Millions of guns costing a thousand dollars each were instantly disallowed with gun owners offered $350 for each during […]
