Lots of people still use the old B-27 targets. If you are shooting for the X your bullets will not be as effective as they could be. A working knowledge of anatomy is important for effective shot placement. The goal is to stop the threat quickly. The B-27 target doesn’t teach you how to do that.

US Army weapons officials will not evaluate an improved version of the service’s Cold War-era 9mm pistol, choosing instead to search for a more modern soldier sidearm.

In early December, Beretta USA, the maker of the U.S. military’s M9 pistol for 30 years, submitted its modernized M9A3 as a possible alternative to the Army’s Modular Handgun System program — an effort to replace the M9 with a more powerful, state-of-the-art pistol.

The improved M9 features new sights, a rail for mounting lights and accessories, better ergonomics and improved reliability, Beretta USA officials said.

But by late December, it was all over for Beretta’s engineering change proposal for the M9. The Army’s Configuration Control Board decided not to evaluate the M9A3, according to a source familiar with the decision.

…So consider the following – if you can, be armed always. Yes…I know. But consider the implications. Of the ten dead civilians in France, how many would have willingly disobeyed unconscionable laws in order to stay alive? If it is difficult, learn to conceal the weapon better. At the very least have a knife with which to stab a terrorist to death.

And stabbing a man to death is an exercise in extreme violence. It is not some strip mall karate school exercise done with high school kids to get in shape. It is violent and sudden and what the body does in its final moments will shock you…maybe, if you haven’t gotten your mind right about such matters.

If you look like the King Of Comedy rather than the King Of the Cage, put down the f*cking remote and get your ass in fighting shape. The terrorist coming to kill you has taken his fitness seriously…do you think he is kidding?

If you are armed your life is easier. Resist the temptation to leave the real sized fighting gun at home and go forth with some “civilian friendly metro sexual” pistol. Anyone can carry a full sized fighting pistol with a little fore thought and care in dressing for the weapon.

After delivering over 600,000 M9 pistols to the DOD and on the heels of being awarded a new contract for up to 100,000 M9s, Beretta USA announced today the presentation of the M9A3 to the US Army. The M9A3 introduces major improvements to the M9 that will increase the operational effectiveness and operational suitability of the weapon. The improvements include design and material enhancements resulting in increased modularity, reliability, durability, and ergonomics. They are being submitted via an Engineering Change Proposal (ECP) in accordance with the terms of the current M9 contract.

Made in the U.S.A. by an American workforce since 1987, the M9 has been the sidearm of the U.S. Armed Forces for nearly 30 years; serving with U.S. service men and women in training and combat operations throughout the world. The M9A3 is designed for the next 30 years – delivering 21st century capability and features while increasing usability and reliability.

Cop’s Deadeye Pistol Shot Took Down Austin Gunman at 100 Yards

It was in the early morning hours on Friday, Nov. 18 when 49-year-old Larry McQuilliams roamed throughout downtown Austin with AK and .22-caliber-type rifles, shooting more than 100 rounds at government buildings and a bank.

Inside his rental van was a copy of the extremist tract Vigilantes of Christendom, which preaches race war.

When he approached the Austin Police Department headquarters, Sgt. Adam Johnson shot McQuilliams once from 312 feet away—while holding onto the reigns of two horses. That’s roughly 100 yards.

It sounds hard to believe. For a handgun, that’s far. Let alone a shot with one hand. A lot of people in the shooting community didn’t believe it. “All this happen at night while holding the reins of two horses,” a commenter wrote on Austin news station KXAN’s Website. “Unbelievable.”

But it’s true, an Austin police spokesperson told War Is Boring.

A publicly traded firearm manufacturing and design company announced its pending purchase of Columbia-based Battenfeld Technologies.

Smith & Wesson, headquartered in Springfield, Mass., has signed an agreement to purchase Battenfeld for $130.5 million. Smith & Wesson expects the sale to become final this month, according to a news release.

Battenfeld, which employs 62 people, will stay at its Columbia facility at 2501 LeMone Industrial Blvd. once the sale becomes final, Battenfeld CEO Jim Gianladis said in an email.

Smith & Wesson CEO James Debney said in a news release that Battenfeld’s products fit with Smith & Wesson’s portfolio, and the purchase gives the company a chance to broaden its business. The company wants to move all of its accessory business to the Battenfeld facility.

“Our intention is that eventually all existing Smith & Wesson, M&P and Thompson/Center Arms accessories will be housed within this new division,” Debney said in the statement.

Karissa Neff and Sara Shertz drive away from the hustle and bustle, down a lonely stretch of Las Vegas Boulevard South until they reach their turn-off, a road where asphalt meets gravel. It’s late afternoon and their truck is loaded with about a dozen semi-automatic handguns, revolvers, and bolt action and high-powered rifles.

A utopia for gun enthusiasts seeking outdoor target practice, the location near Sloan is barren isolation with a touch of lawlessness. Pockmarked by divots and peppered debris, the off-road stretch is lined with pickup trucks and empty ammunition shells.

For the women of Gun Play Vegas, it’s just another day at the office.

America’s oldest gun manufacturer, Remington, has agreed to replace millions of triggers in its most popular product—the Model 700 rifle. The company has been riddled for years with claims the gun can fire without the trigger being pulled, often with deadly results.

A 2010 CNBC documentary, “Remington Under Fire: A CNBC Investigation,” explored allegations that for decades the company covered up a design defect, which Remington continues to deny. But now, under a nationwide settlement filed Friday in a federal court in Missouri, the company is agreeing to replace the triggers in about 7.85 million rifles.

While insisting its action is not a recall of the iconic gun, Remington says in a statement that it is agreeing to make the changes “to avoid the uncertainties and expense of protracted litigation.”

The 2013 LEOKA Report- Studying the Cop Killers

The FBI recently released its annual Law Enforcement Officers Killed and Assaulted report. According to the FBI webpage:

The FBI publishes Law Enforcement Officers Killed and Assaulted each year to provide information about officers who were killed, feloniously or accidentally, and those officers who were assaulted while performing their duties.”

I find the report to be a treasure trove of information about cop-killing violent criminals. It should be mandatory reading for every police officer. Armed citizens will also find the information useful as the criminals who prey on cops also regularly attack citizens in a similar manner.

The report is long. It doesn’t matter. Take the time to read it. You may learn something that will save your life.

One of the most interesting sections is the chapter of Summaries of Officers Feloniously Killed. The chapter provides short descriptions of the circumstances involved in all 27 felonious police deaths last year. Take your time to analyze each situation. If you are a cop, figure out how you might use the lessons presented in this report to improve your tactics and awareness. Don’t let these officers’ deaths be in vain. They would want you to learn from their mistakes.

We need to talk about what to do once you have made a LAWFUL use of deadly force decision and have taken another human life. You now are going to go thru a lot of things but the first thing you need to do is KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT until you talk to your lawyer! You also need to learn to keep bad guys from taking your guns away from you and using them to kill you, your kids, your spouse or anyone else. Having and carrying a gun is JUST THE BEGINNING and if you will not train with it, it most likely will be used against you and your family.

Lack of spare parts triggers the end for old reliable Lee-Enfield rifle

What kept them in service is workhorse reliability in the most adverse conditions.<br />
Sixteen-year-old John Gruben is seen here on polar bear watch at Issungnak, N.W.T., in 1981, with his trusty Lee-Enfield .303.

The foe now has four legs.

But a century on, the rugged reliability and brute firepower that made the Lee-Enfield rifle the standard-issue weapon for entrenched Canadian troops during the latter half of the First World War makes it an ideal choice still for a modern group of this country’s soldiers.

The Canadian Rangers — a component of the armed forces reserves — conduct sovereignty patrols and assist search and rescue missions in the Far North and in remote coastal regions across the country.

And the red-shirted Rangers — made up largely of aboriginal volunteers — have been using Lee-Enfield rifles little changed from the First World War version since the group was first established in 1947.

“The Rangers were not issued this weapon to fight an enemy, they were given the rifle because they are operating in one of the harshest environments in the world,” says Capt. Mark Rittwage, officer commander of the 3rd Canadian Patrol Group, Northern Ontario.

“And . . . the predators that are there, polar bears, wolves, even bull moose during rutting season, can cause a danger to our Rangers,” Rittwage says.

The Lee-Enfield is still being used by many military and police forces around the globe.

Ammunition pulled from Walmart shelves in Ferguson amid violent clashes over the police shooting of Michael Brown

Fears: Bosses at this Ferguson Walmart and one in Maplewood have pulled ammunition amid violent clashes

Ammunition has been pulled from the shelves of two Walmarts in Ferguson amid violent clashes over the police shooting of Michael Brown.

Employees were ordered to lock all bullets in a store cupboard on Monday after demonstrators stormed one of the stores and formed a barricade outside another.

Bosses in Ferguson and nearby Maplewood revealed they took the precaution in fear of looting and violence as racial divides in the Missouri city show no sign of resolve.

It is the first time Walmart has taken such action since the Sandy Hook massacre in 2012, when assault rifles were removed from shelves in Connecticut.

Addressing Ferguson, Walmart spokesman Brian Nick told KMOV-TV: ‘If there is a history of violence and looting and other activity that are going on or things that are putting associates and customers at risk – then yes, decisions can be made based on those circumstances.’

Customers who wish to buy bullets will have to discuss their intended purchase with a sales assistant, he said.
