Terrorism fears appear to be pushing more Americans to buy guns. FBI data show this was the busiest June ever for firearms dealers. Tom Hand continues to be busy–at his gun and pawn shop in Daphne.

“People are concerned with their own safety and are still interested in carrying guns for their own personal defense outside of their home,” said Tom Hand with Goldmine Pawn. The Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando last month marked the single largest mass shooting in American history. That helped make June the busiest June on record for gun dealers with background checks up nearly 40-percent compared to June 2015.

If you are reading this, then you are probably the type of person who would be willing to fight back against a terrorist attack using your guns.

The fact is that more and more terrorist attacks are going to be occurring on American soil because the “Global War on Terror” includes the USA now.

That means, if you have a gun and you carry it (as you should), you ought to put some thought into how you would fight back against a possibly suicidal team of terrorists who is intent on racking up the biggest body count possible.

Here’s a fact: terrorists love bombs.

For black gun owners, bearing arms is a civil rights issue

In February 2015, Philip Smith started a Facebook group to make space for the often-overlooked concerns of law-abiding, license-carrying gun owners who happen to be African-American.

Smith was tired of feeling conspicuous as the only black guy at the gun ranges he visited. Surely, he thought, there must be others out there, dealing with the same suspicions he faced when passersby glimpsed the Glock on his hip.

A year and a half later, Smith counts more than 11,000 members, representing all 50 states.

Smith’s forum reflects what researchers see as growing interest among African Americans in gun ownership. But becoming a black licensed gun owner is not a risk-free prospect, a fact brought to light this month by the police shooting of Philando Castile, who had a permit to carry a concealed weapon when he was shot in his car July 6, and by the presence at a Dallas rally of perhaps 30 marchers July 7 openly carrying their rifles. Dallas police mistakenly labeled a black licensed gun owner as a “person of interest” after gunman opened fire, killing five police officers.

I confess that in the last few days I have had a burning anger in my heart over what happened. I am long gone from the profession but I still teach those guys and what I am going to write here is going to be controversial as hell. Some will say “its too soon”. Look…I have my people out in harm’s way tonight…it is never too soon and we discuss this not to castigate a man, but to point out what happened…and most important…why I think it happened.

I chanced to be at the local WalMart in Yuma today.  This is the store on the frontage road off of old Highway 8, East of town.  Until Friday, June 24, 2016, I had not seen any .22 Long Rifle in the store for three years.

On that date, there were 2,300 rounds of CCI Mini-Mags and 1,000 rounds of CCI Standard Velocity.  The Mini-Mags were in plastic 100 round boxes at $7.47 a box.  The Standard Velocity were in paper, 50 round boxes at $3.47 a box.  I was told by the clerk, Yittzel, that they would be gone in a few days.  I am sure that she was correct.

Machine Guns Are Legal: A Practical Guide to Full Auto (…But Not in NY!)

I love machine guns. They don’t call the selectors on automatic firearms “fun switches” for nothing, and I have yet to hand off a machine gun to someone and have it not bring a smile to their face (it brings me joy exposing people to full auto for the first time). For the sake of this article, the word “machine gun” will meet the ATF’s definition: Any weapon which shoots, is designed to shoot, or can be readily restored to shoot, automatically more than one shot without manual reloading, by a single function of the trigger.

The machine gun was invented by American Hiram Maxim, and interestingly enough, the USA is one of the few countries on the planet where regular folks can in fact own a fully automatic firearm. In fact,machine guns have never been illegal in the USA on a federal level. They are heavily regulated, but not illegal at all.

Vet with Semi-Auto Rifle Saves Eagle Entangled in Tree, Authorites Paralyzed

Jason Galvin spotted an eagle that was entangled in a bit of rope in a tree in Minnesota.  It had been hanging there for two days.  He told his wife, Jackie.  She thought something must be done.  But the authorities, the Department of Natural Resources, the Sheriffs Office, City Hall, the Fire Department, the University of Minnesota Raptor Center, didn’t.  They all gave her the same story. They were tied up in red tape.  No one could do anything, too much liability.  The eagle was already dead.

The only thing they did not say, was “What difference does it make?”

But the Galvins knew different.  Jason is an excellent shot.  He really did serve in Afghanistan.  He thought he could use a semi-automatic rifle, the popular Ruger 10-22, to free the eagle from its deadly entanglement.  Fortunately, the authorities agreed to allow a private citizen to act when they were paralyzed.  It was a team effort.  Once Jason suggested the idea, Jackie insisted on it. He did the shooting.  She did much of the coordinating and support.

Josh Waldron, CEO of SilencerCo on the Future of Silencers

Josh Waldron SilencerCo CEO

The National Firearms Act (NFA), passed in 1934, imposes severe regulation and a $200 tax on legal silencers.

I asked Josh about the future of silencers and silencer legislation.

Do you have a plan, and can you tell me about it?

“It starts as education. Ever since we started the company in 2008, we have had a focus on education and advocacy. When I first started the company there were only 18,000 silencers were sold in the United States each year, and that was every manufacturer.”

“From the time we have started until now, there were 18,000 then, we are now selling about 18,000 silencers every month, just SilencerCo.

In the last five years, this has been the fastest growing segment of the firearms industry.”

Obama Smart Gun Push Could Conflict With Constitutional Rights, Legal Expert Says

“This [smart gun policy] could compel someone to incriminate themselves,” Greenlee told The Daily Signal. “The Fifth Amendment prevents someone from being compelled. But it seems smart gun owners might have to give up that right.”

The reason: Thus far, courts have said the government can’t compel a citizen to punch in a smartphone security code, but can require the opening of fingerprint smartphones.

The Fifth Amendment states that a person shall not “be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.”

The NEW UPDATED Army Rifle & Carbine Training Circular, FREE for Download

Published on: June 10, 2016


The Department of the Army has recently released a gold mine including the updated Rifle & Carbine Training Circular Training Circular. This manual was last updated was 8 years ago in 2008.


I’m sure that you – just like me – have spent a small fortune on firearms, optics, accessories and so much ammunition. How often do we train “right” and how much do we really think about what is going on when we hit or miss a target? We miss, we shoot again and hope we hit. Eventually if we keep missing we then shoot at something easier and closer down the shooting range. But what if we analyzed what is really going on and why we missed? Could we improve our hit probability?

I know I do not spend enough time reading literature about ballistics and understand what is going on with the weapon, my shooting stance, the ammunition and the relationship between the physical environment and the target. Now I have no excuse because there are 236 pages waiting to download and study, all for free. As a bonus, there are easy to understand graphs and pictures.
