Around the time the G2 RIP, the Radically Invasive Projectile that would “buzzsaw” through barriers and then burst like a grenade in your target, started going around the gun blogosphere, we were quick to jump on it and point out all of the people demonstrating its flaws. Source: ShootingTheBull410 One of the more amusing videos in that first wave was from ShootingTheBull410 on YouTube, showing that you could get a similar-looking ballistics gel block result …Read More »

S&W Shield “No Safety” is Official!
Well, it looks official anyways! Gallery of Guns is listing the new Shield in their online store now, which is great news! Last week I posted about an image that I had come across while surfing on Facebook that showed the S&W Shield “No Safety”, but it wasn’t clear if the image was real at the time. It’s now looking like it’s real, and I’m pretty excited about it. As far as I can tell, …Read More »
Friday Link Day
Here’s some news stories that you may want to check out: Barry Saunders over at the N&O weighs in on the Pit BBQ robbery. I don’t like his tone, but for the most part, I agree with his point. Actually Ben and I discussed that same point before his article was posted during the news on the latest podcast episode. California moving to outlaw homemade guns. Gabby at Gun Nuts Media shoots her first USPSA …Read More »
I’ve Been Busy Being Lazy…
Thought I’d take a second to check in and let y’all know why there’s been a lack of content this week: I’ve been quite lazy. No seriously, I’ve been tinkering with my little garden, and spending a lot of time sitting on the back porch with the dog, and it’s been glorious. On top of being lazy, I’ve been mending some little squash plants back to life, transplanting my peppers and cucumbers, and generally moving …Read More »
CNN Poll: Who Cares?
Has everyone seen this today? CNN, the channel that nobody watches apparently put a poll down at the very bottom of the page on their website (a place where nobody ever goes) regarding gun control. I think TTAG posted about it first, and from there every pro-gun Facebook page around was sharing it and making it go viral. I kept seeing things like “Fire Mission!!!! Zomg!!!”, “Hit this important poll!”, “Vote right now!” Why do …Read More »
I’m Still Going to Eat at Chipotle
Late last night I talked about the rifle open carry tools who walked into a Chipotle in Texas carrying a tacticool SKS at the low ready. Chipotle came out and requested that people not bring guns into their stores, and all of the anti-gun folks screamed victory. I have a feeling that Chipotle is going to take a play from Starbucks book after their hand was forced by tools just like these guys in Texas …Read More »
Please Don’t Ruin Chipotle, This is Not Okay
I found this picture on Facebook tonight of two jackwagons in a Chipotle exercising their rights. Before I dive into this, I want to make it very clear that I have no problem with open carry of handguns, and I don’t have a problem with open carry of long guns. I do have a problem with people thinking that it’s okay to do things in a public setting that wouldn’t be okay behind the firing …Read More »
“The Pit” BBQ Restaurant in Durham Robbed at Gunpoint
Last year, The Pit BBQ Restaurant in Raleigh hosted Gabby Giffords and her anti-gun tour through Raleigh to have a conversation about guns. Gun owners weren’t allowed to have a seat at the table to participate in the conversation. Last night The Pit restaurant in Durham was the victim of an armed robbery while they were open. Three armed men broke in the back door, and two employees were assaulted, and I assume cash was …Read More »
Go Buy my Guns!
I’m consolidating some guns in order to make room for new ones. I bought both of these with the intention of shooting them for a while, and now their time is up. First on the block is my S&W M&P Shield 9mm. – SOLD I bought this pistol used with about 500 rounds down the pipe in September 2013. Since then I don’t believe I’ve shot more than 3-400 rounds through it. It still has …Read More »
