UNLICENSED Possession of a Gun Prohibited

Tonight a pro-gun facebook page posted this picture without comment to their page. I quickly scanned it, and didn’t think much of it. I ended up scrolling past it again a couple of minutes later, and I gave it a closer look after I noticed that there were lots of comments asking where these cards could be purchased. As a gun blogger (I think I’ve achieved that status now?) I’m going to come out and …

I’m back!

I’m all hitched and stuff and I’m back to blogging! Just wanted to say thanks for all of the emails, we had a great time! I will say that I was unable to find a way to carry a firearm during the wedding, even though I tried! I wasn’t wearing a belt, and I don’t have a pocket holster for the Shield.

Cabela’s Coming to the Triangle!

Sean sent this to me this morning, and it’s great news! Months back we received news that there were two large sporting goods stores coming to the Triangle, and I speculated that it would be Bass Pro Shops, and Academy Sports, but it appears that I was incorrect, and I’m ok with that. Cabelas has come out in recent months as a huge advocate for the shooting sports, as well as hunting and fishing. I’ve …

So, I’ve been meaning to listen to this super old episode of The Survival Podcast for a while, where Jack Spirko dives into ballistics, and explains things really awesomely. You should check it out. This is just cool: Pin-up girl nose art on an AR-15. I’d totally add something like this to my game gun. Pro-gun folks are calling their representatives 5x as much as the antis? Orly? Certainly 90% of Americans want gun control …
