Chicks & Guns

And Holsters and Bags

The Enemy is Not Stupid

They know frontal assaults are full of fail

Liberal Spin

On Contempt charges by the GOP

Again the tried old "let's blame Bush" lament

Now at least when it was done under Bush, 3 things happened, 1. they informed the Mexican Government they were doing it, 2. They tried to add electronic trackers, to well actually track the weapons. 3. When that failed the entire program was shut down.

Later with Obama in office the program is restarted without informing the Mexicans, without any means of tracking the weapons until they show up at a crime scene, and continued until they are caught with their hands in the cookie jar.

Now why restart a program with fewer safe guards than a previous failure, unless you have your own agenda? 

Now if the whole thing were rogue agents acting on their own, Holder could have proved that over a year ago, but instead denials, and side stepping, until he is in the corner, that it really did come down from above, and Executive Privilege only counts if the President/Whitehouse were also involved. 

I for one agree with the NRA, it was a lesson Clinton learned in 94, when he lost the House and the Senate.

Good thing they have gun control

Imagine what it could be like without gun control

Maybe like Albuquerque New Mexico?

I wouldn't accept "democratic decision-making"

When it includes a lot of dead people voting

NRA was started 1871 right here in New York state. It was started by some Yankee generals who didn't like the way my Southern boys had the ability to shoot in what we call the 'War of Northern Aggression.' Now y'all might call it the Civil War, but we call it the 'War of Northern Aggression' down south. But that was the very reason that they started the National Rifle Association, was to teach and train the civilian in the use of the standard military firearm and I am one who still feel very strongly that that is one of our greatest charges that we can have today, is to train the civilian in the use of the standard military firearm so when they have to fight for their country, they're ready to do it. Also, when they're ready to fight tyranny, they're ready to do it. Also, when they're ready to fight tyranny, they have the wherewithal and the weapons to do it. I charge you ladies and gentlemen that that is a very important charge for all of us to take up. It's a sacred duty for all of us to maintain. We've received it from our ancestors. You think about the War of Independence. You think about Valley Forge ... And they defeated the most powerful military force known to that time in civilization.

But She Was Licensed

How many times have we heard the anti's say if we licensed and registered gun owners, like drivers things like this wouldn't happen?

This has been a really good series of articles

On Justified Homicide

That's Right they are


Survive the Apocalypse


Of all places New Jersey


Three employees of an armored vehicle company were shot and killed 

Police suspect the incident involved an attempted robbery

 You Think?

Why I recommend Dave Grossman Seminars

Experts say the psychological aftermath of a self-defense homicide can be profound

I'm a bit speechless at the stupidity

The defense claims the two would regularly dry-fire the guns at each other (pull the trigger without ammo) and had done it that night.
Shain's attorney says Shain didn't know a handgun was reloaded by Arlen, when he pointed it at Arlen. He claims Arlen put his mouth around the barrel, and told Shain to, "Do it."

My how the world has changed

Plenty of firepower (from the AP): "Perth Amboy, N.J., June 15 — Guards with repeating rifles have so effectively guarded the factories besieged by striking laborers here that conditions were comparatively quiet this morning. The strikers still number about 4,000 and the death list stands at three. They are without a leader, however; the majority of them are not union members and the employers say that under these conditions the strike cannot succeed. Although clashes between the guards and strikers were frequent yesterday and last night, the repeating rifles and Gatling guns have proven so potent that the authorities have abandoned the idea of calling the state militia unless there is a marked change for the worse."

Makes Sense

Increased guns sales due to more TV shows covering the sport, have lead to more new buyers

So is the election or some of the new shows, like American Guns, Top Shot etc or a combination of both?

If it is the election then things will likely slow down in November, but if the TV  has made guns cool and the "Hot" new thing to do then the wave of sales may well continue, at least till the next hot new thing shows up.

Time to carry

Something bigger than a handgun

Mob attacks, only in Chicago, in most of the armed states (America) acting like that could get a lot of people shot

Well you may not have to squat

But they want to make you sit

From Combat Zone

To the Olympics 

Sound Advice, avoidance is best

Police Chief Shoots

Himself, while cleaning gun

From the article I will assume it was a Glock, now we can't blame the booger hook on this one, Glock's do have to be de-cocked to take apart. How about not following instructions? All the Glock manuals I've seen show to grasp the take down tabs from beneath the firearm, but how many people do you see grasp the tabs from the top?
Which leaves some part of the hand in front of what? Muzzle you say? You are correct!

What did we learn in basic firearms class? 
Always point the gun in a safe direction

That muzzle is always pointed at something

He will likely appeal

But he will have to use something besides "Stand Your Ground"

There is a link to his defense video here

Ohio House

Passes CCW improvement bill


Hopes for arson

Detroit the nation’s justifiable homicide capital?

One that did it right, and one that did it wrong

He'd called police, but an officer told him it could be days before someone showed up to take a report. Like many Detroit residents frustrated by the city’s dwindling police resources, White prepared himself for the worst.
Like White, Croff had been victimized before. After his east side home was burglarized three times in a single week, Croff came home from his security guard job and found a group of men attempting another break-in. But unlike White, Croff gave chase when the intruders fled. He eventually caught up to 53-year-old Herbert Silas and shot the unarmed man in the chest.
Never give chase

Shooting when you are drunk

can kill you

Although shooting at a fuel tank is pretty stupid, in itself, I'd think one would to be pretty close to said tank,  to get maintain enough velocity for a fatal wound.

“It’s a statistical black hole,”

Police are reporting the cases as criminal homicides. When it’s later determined to be justifiable, they don’t change the easy-to-recode electronic records. It’s as simple as changing a “1” to a “4.”

So if they are finding these kind of errors in one state, how many of the nations homicides are justified?

And Delusions In Training

It takes both the Instructor and the Student to make it happen

Just because you are shot

Does not make you dead

accidentally hit the trigger?

Do lay blame on the last person that handled the firearm, you are to blame as you were the one handling it when it discharged ALL GUNS ARE LOADED, until you have checked , and know they are not.

Forget 9 vs 45!!

Let's make it 1911 vs 1911

The first video starts with them loading the gun with their strong hand, if you want to impress me, at the very least show you know how to handle a gun. Then continue to stuff your booger hook on the bang switch, With pistol and rifles we shoot for groups, not patterns, 11 million rounds?

The 2nd video was a hoot, bad stances, grips, and at the 40 second mark, that anticipation on the trigger. 

This will not be my go to place for gun advice

Handgun based on your nervous system

Looks a lot like a Sigma to me

Detonics is proud to introduce the DTX, the first semi-automatic pistol engineered on Combat Human Factor research. Every major component of the DTX is designed to enhance combat point shooting accuracy, to compensate for the precision impairments triggered by SNS activation, and enhance ease of operation.

An Honest look at Suicide

Of the heart-wrenching irony that Stephen used a gun to take his life, Susan Scherer says: "A gun is a gun. A rifle is a rifle. It's not an evil thing. Stephen could have harmed himself in any way. That's just what he used that day."

Hope her all the best in London
