Second Amendment Foundation Sues North Carolina

I had no idea this was coming, but I couldn’t be happier to see it! BELLEVUE, WA – The Second Amendment Foundation today filed a lawsuit in federal district court in North Carolina on behalf of an Australian citizen who legally resides in the state, but cannot obtain a concealed carry permit under a state law that only allows citizens to get such permits. This is great news! We have plenty of people who are …

The “Beer Can” AR-15

A friend of mine lives up in Michigan where pop cans and beer cans have a $0.10 deposit that is paid when you buy them, and then you return the can to the store and get your $0.10 back. Picking up cans is a big thing in Michigan, and hardly anyone tosses a can in the trash. My buddy’s neighbor likes to drink a lot of beer, and apparently worked out a deal that my …

Cowhide vs. Horsehide Holsters

Years ago when I purchased my first Crossbreed Supertuck holster, I had heard from many sources that the horsehide version was the best in hot climates because the horsehide wasn’t as absorbent as cowhide, and because of this it would keep sweat off of your pistol. After wearing the horsehide Supertuck for 3+ years I never noticed it really repelling sweat, so when I won a free Crossbreed holster at a match, I just went …

NC Leg to Durham: Take Your Gun Registry and Shove it!

The NC State Legislature passed Senate Bill 226 today, the bill that eliminates the Jim Crow era gun registry in Durham County. The Durham County gun registry was a racist thing allowed by the state legislature back in 1935. Statutorily it would have been illegal for any other county in the state to operate a gun registry, so why should Durham county be allowed to run a gun registry when no other county can? Racism. …

Man Honored for Heroism During Navy Yard Shooting

On September 16, 2013 a madman was on a murderous rampage through the Washington Navy Yard. During the shooting Navy Capt. Edward Zawislak (also an Eagle Scout and Scoutmaster) came across a woman who had been shot and he sprang into action. From the Bryan on Scouting Blog: As this Washington Post story explains, Zawislak and two co-workers carried Bennett up some stairs to the only open door they could find. It led to the building’s roof. Still unsure whether the …

“I want to give my Girlfriend a gun, but only want it to make noise”

I’m almost as a loss for words here. This post starts out pretty sane: person is having an issue with a peeping Tom, and want to make sure his girlfriend has a means to protect herself should there be a home invasion when he isn’t home. Noble. But then the derp starts. He wants to load some blanks for her so he doesn’t risk (the possibly inexperienced with firearms) girlfriend shooting his garage or one …

2014 MGM Ironman Videos

Rather than working on some great blog content, or cleaning guns, or reloading today, I’ve been sitting in front of my computer monitor watching YouTube videos of the 2014 MGM Ironman 3-Gun match that took place earlier this month. The stages are huge, and some of them involve things like a zip line, driving a golf cart, running through an underground bunker, and more steel targets than you can shake a 40 round PMAG at. …

Jerry Miculek: Be a Good Neighbor, Don’t Put People on the Spot

After watching this video, I would like to nominate Jerry Miculek for 2A Statesman of the year. He nails the retention aspect of open carry (Which we talked about with Chris Clifton in Episode 85) and he hits the public perception aspect into orbit. (Video Link for Email/RSS Readers) “You’re a representation of a good gun owner. Don’t put people on the spot, nobody likes being put on the spot. We all want to be …

Michigan Legislature Passes HB 5085 Allowing Handguns at Camp

As you know, I grew up in the Northern Lower Peninsula of Michigan, and it’s an absolutely gorgeous place. I spent most of my summers backpacking, hunting, canoeing, and shooting with my friends from Boy Scouts. One of the best parts of summer was heading up to Camp Greilick for a week of scout camp. During the day at scout camp, we spent a lot of our time working on different merit badges, and in …
