The feds do not have this power. The feds should never have this power.
Your right to have a firearm anywhere in America should never depend on getting “papers” from any government, much less the federal powers in Washington, D.C.

Recently, a federal judge ordered the parties in an economic-loss class action to remind owners of certain Remington firearms that a settlement has been reached. The settlement involves two classes.
The first class includes owners of firearms that utilize a trigger connector. The second class includes owners of firearms that utilize the X-Mark Pro trigger mechanism that is the subject of a voluntary safety recall.
The settlement allows owners of Remington models 700, Seven, and related models to have their trigger replaced free of charge, among other benefits.
The settlement was entered following allegations that Remington firearms can fire without a trigger pull. Remington denies those allegations with respect to the trigger connector but is offering trigger replacements to ensure continued satisfaction for its…

Interesting Analysis From Active Self Protection
I’ve watched about 5,000 gunfights at this point, and the patterns that emerge are pretty clear. Some thoughts you might want to consider that I don’t think that the training community really wants to hear:
1. Most gunfights aren’t entangled gunfights. Empty-handed skills are important, but very rare once the gun comes out. They’re necessary for LE more than CCW, by a long shot. For CCW, empty-handed skills are critical for the 80% of assaults that don’t rise to the level of deadly force response. So go to your martial arts training.
2. Reloads are almost vanishingly insignificant factors in gunfights. I have seen precisely 2 reloads in a real gunfight that weren’t on-duty LEO. And neither of those affected the outcome of the fight. I have seen about 7 or 8 where a higher capacity firearm or the presence of a reload might…

A fabulous rifle, in shorter “Youth” configuration. It is also a wonderful size for people 5′ 5″ or shorter, because I have seen many smaller people use youth rifles with deadly precision. For myself, at 6’0″, a reduced size rifle is like a handy carbine. There is no noticeable increase in recoil, nor any muzzle flip beyond normal. The caliber of .30-30, is a sweetheart and has put plenty of meat on tables, including my own table. Self defense, it is an excellent choice. Hunting, a superb choice up to 200 yards, anything beyond that is possible, but I would hold the range slight of where a shooter’s proficiency is. Whitetail and black bear, no problem. Hogs, too. My own preference is the .45-70 caliber, but a .30-30, I put plenty of lead out of the barrel over the years, and never lost my love of the caliber or the 336. In a youth model, it should build pride for the up-and-coming shooter, who carries what their father or grandfather is carrying. Women, are a natural with the 336 and caliber.
There is only one thing that I would do, and will be doing this year as I am reunited with a 336 that I sold a few decades ago and my cousin no longer desires any gun and wants to return it to me, the original owner, and that is, the walnut stock, I personally take the time to disassemble and give a couple coats of Watco Dark Danish Oil, and buff it out by hand, for a soft but resilient darkened finish. Like my Model-70, people are spellbound when they see the finish. Just be careful because boiled linseed oil (BLO) is in that finish and self-combustion is an issue.
“Youth” models of shotguns and rifles like John’s Marlin 336Y offer a reduced length of pull and shorter barrel lengths making them lighter and more easily handled in tight situations. From that perspective there is a good argument for using them for self-defense. I have often thought about picking up a rifle just like the author’s to use when stalk hunting through thick brush.
On the other hand, the shorter barrels and lighter weight can often result in increased muzzle blast and recoil. These are less than conducive to effective use in self-defense situations.
Standard AR-15s offer similar advantages in terms of weight and length without the trade-off in recoil but muzzle blast will still be a downside.
So, what are your thoughts on youth models for self-defense?

I hope Indiana will become a Constitutional Carry State.
We need to keep the pressure on the State Legislature especially Indiana House Speaker Brian Bosma.
Many states realized that Second Amendment and gun rights advocates would continue to push and push until citizens were allowed to carry concealed weapons in many public places as a means of self-defense. However, liberals insisted on maintaining some control over citizens being armed so they compromised in allowing the creation of concealed carry permits. This allowed them to know everyone who applied for and obtained a concealed carry permit. It was another form of gun registration which many Second Amendment and gun rights advocates are against. Yet, they compromised by agreeing to a permit system.
Now, Second Amendment and gun rights advocates have been attacking the constitutional legality of requiring citizens to obtain a permit in order to exercise…

Rice takes up not much storage space. 5kg of rice is just a small bag. The bag can provide energy (carbohydrate) food to a 60kg person for about one week. The food still needs to be supplemented with protein food (meat, for muscles building) from other sources.

Philadelphia was effectively the capitol of the United States. In European warfare, when an army captured it enemy’s capitol, the war was considered over.
Rather than surrender, the Continental Congress quickly evacuated Philadelphia.
They even took the down the Liberty Bell and carried it with them so the British could not melt it into musket balls.

I should qualify the title. The pistol of which I write is the last production variation of the Savage Model 1907 pistol in .32 ACP. The Savage 1910 and 1917 were still in production until the middle 1920s or so and Savage continues to build rifles to this day. Savage made the Model 101, a single shot .22 pistol made to look like a single action revolver for about 10 years in the 1960s. They also made a Model 502 Striker pistol, which is a pistol length bolt action single shot in choice of .22 long rifle, .22 WRM or .17 rimfire something. It was a fairly recent arm, but is not on the Savage Arms site, so I presume it is no longer in production. (I don’t follow ‘new’ guns much.)
However, the Savage model 1907. variant 19, modification 2 was the last of the models 1907. According to…

While the main purpose of today’s trip was to see how the FNP-45 would perform on its initial voyage to the range, I had a lot of fun with the others as well.
First, the FNP-45. This pistol handles nicely and I will say the lightweight polymer frame does translate into a little more felt recoil than with my 1911s, although it’s not objectionable. I shot both factory Sellier & Bellot 230 gr FMJ and some of my own 200 gr SWC loads. The S&B loads had a lot more “punch”, which resulted in the FNP felling a little…

If you’ve already read the first six articles in this series you have at least a basic background in the philosophical, theological and political implications of weapon ownership and use. This article–and the next two–concern practical, moral and legal issues, as well as exploring some of the primary ways that carrying a concealed weapon must […]
Lower receiver, ready for a build: Magazine release in place. Bolt release in place. This is one of the more difficult parts to assemble, in my opinion. You must compress a screw, then drive a pin through a hole between two ears, while compressing the spring. Detent and hinge pin in place. This is one […]

I wanted to check out the new USA series, Shooter, based on the Bob Lee Swagger books by Stephen Hunter. I made it about five minutes in and turned it off.
In the initial scene Bob Lee Swagger “explains” to a couple of “hunters” that .223 is incapable of killing anything larger than a squirrel…

This was another light week for us.
We bought more batteries; 9 volt batteries for the smoke detectors, CR123 batteries for weapon mounted lights and flashlights in our go bags and CR2032 batteries for our optics mounted on self-defense firearms. I try and replace the batteries in all devices we might be betting our lives on every January.
Since I stocked up on ammo last week we bought primers for reloading this week; 100 each of Small Pistol, Small Rifle and Large Rifle.
I also have a batch of 100 .38 Special practice rounds that I am in the process of reloading. All I have left to do it add the powder and seat the bullets. Hopefully, I will finish those up next week.
I bought some power bars to replace the outdated granola bars in both my get home bag and my EDC bag.
That’s it for me. That’s…

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A Staten Island man had a wild encounter recently when an eight-point buck showed up in his cellphone pictures. As CBS2’s Raegan Medgie reported, it all went well until the deer turned into a dangerous selfie. Ryan Planco of New Springville was out in the woods Nov. 6 when the deer…
H/T AmmoLand. I think gun owners will see better things happening under President Trump than would have happened nder President Clinton. USA –-(Ammoland.com)- If you’ve been listening to the NBC and CNN news reports after the election, you’d think that the Trump administration is going to launch some pretty outlandish initiatives, even by reality television […]

Today’s market is flooded with striker-fired polymer pistols. In fact, I just read a review of a new offering by CZ where the author claimed it to be a “problem solver” for the handgun market. That comment left me perplexed, as I wondered “what problem is this new pistol solving?” Please don’t get me wrong, I’m not bashing CZ products or predicting they aren’t going to bring a wonderful pistol to the shooting public. However, when thinking about what is unique about it, I’m left blank. When Springfield announced their Mod.2 revision of the XD platform earlier this year, I had a similar reaction: ”Yawn… an XD with a recontoured slide and grip with some no-snag sights.” That is, until I starting thinking further.
Years ago, I purchased a gently-used stainless XD-40 service model at a pawn shop. I was looking for something in .40 as an alternative to a…

BBC Springwatch recently shared this awesome video of a grey squirrel using one of our Horse Head Squirrel Feeders. He’s determined to retrieve a tasty treat from inside the feeder, but in the meantime he looks like a horse-squirrel hybrid who’s possibly had one too many hazelnut daiquiris. To watch squirrel shenanigans like this from the comfort of your […]
Bad ideas, particularly those dreamed up by progressives, never die. They merely lurk in the shadows, waiting for honest, law-abiding American’s attention to momentarily wander. Such is the case with so-called “smart” guns. Like microstamping, smart guns are a brilliant solution to a nonexistent problem, a solution posed, from time to time, by progressives who […]
