Akins Accelerator 2

Long time readers may remember the Akins Accelerator. If you don’t, the TLDR version is that it was a bumpfire stock for the Ruger 10/22 (the first I’d seen) except it had a spring to do the bumping. A sample was sent to ATF, who couldn’t get the thing to work, for approval. ATF initially approved the device. Then, they actually saw one of them working and ruled that it was a machine gun. All the people who shelled out $1,200 for it now had to remove the evil spring to comply with ATF’s ruling.

Somehow it escaped my notice that there is now a springless version called the Akins Accelerator 2. Here’s a video of it in action:

Looks to be a simple bumpfire type stock now. Banning that evil spring helped.

I concur. It’s pretty much theft. And I’m saddened to see the party of smaller government saying it will increase use of the practice.

And also heh.

Good news, bad news

My state senator, Doug Overbey, is leaving office. He has a history of killing off pro gun bills in committee. The bad news is he will be the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee:

State Sen. Doug Overbey, R-Maryville, was nominated Friday by President Donald Trump to serve as U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee.

Overbey was one of six U.S. attorney nominations announced today by the president. Hes the third Republican state senator who now seems likely to be leaving the legislature next year.

But will he do the Fandango?

Anthony Scaramucci, Trump’s new communications guy, is anti-gun. And he’s trying to delete his twitter history.

Custom P320. One of these days, I’m going to have to shoot one of those.

That is one sexy Evo.

They should pay up

The Brady Campaign advised the family of a victim in a mass shooting to sue an ammo dealer. Now, that family is filing for bankruptcy protection because they took bad legal advice from the Brady Bunch.

Ah, Gecko45, I remember him well.

Snap on suppressor

From Fischer Development:

Though I could do without all the operator stuff, I’m curious enough to want to handle one.

Who knew?

Inside Italy’s thriving gun culture. Lots of cool pics.

Impressive shot

ACKCHYUALLY

I think Tam makes a fair point here about gun guys being a little too anal retentive when it comes to the press’ sloppy coverage. But there is a difference between reading the slide of a gun and making up the AK-15. Or the Oozie. Those are clearly mockable.

I like it.

Registering your fingers

I’ve joked about it before. But this AutoGlove contraption makes that seem less silly. Yes, it’s a glove that simulates full auto fire. And creates the most awkward grip of a pistol I have seen.

And I’m back

The routine, uhm, plumbing check turned out well. Finally feeling better. It’s not the procedure. It’s the day and a half of no food and the pooping that sucked.

I’m amazed at the people who have said to me today after hearing about it, they’d never do that or get a prostate check BECAUSE BUTTS AND GAY. Seriously, people get your shit checked. There’s no need dying over something that is preventable and curable if caught early.

This has been a public service message. Seriously, get checked.

Sorry about that

Been out. I have to do my best to do my doody. Tomorrow is colonoscopy day. Bottoms up. Then bottoms down.

How many rounds can be fired continuously through a 5.56mm sound suppressor?

Unlike the video from a bit back, the suppressor in this case outlasts the 249’s barrel:

Yeah, that’s not good

Using Castille to hawk carry guard.

And my understanding of CarryGuard (which may be incorrect) is that it basically pays out upon acquittal, which seems to make it useless in case you need it.

In CA

Gun owners are the problem, not the criminals. At least, that’s what the legislature seems to think:

Thursday, in a move that absolutely defies the slightest semblance of logic, the Democrat controlled California State Senate passed a measure that will lower the sentences for felons who used a gun in the commission of their crimes. Yes, you read that right. They are reducing sentences for criminals using guns. These are the very same Democrats that constantly create and pass stricter and stricter gun control laws, and who constantly scream, cry and whine about how guns are bad.

Most of them?

ATF wants to know what regulations should be modified or repealed. Says the Trace, with much butthurt:

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is polling outside interest groups about what gun regulations to eliminate following an edict from the Trump administration to cut government red tape.

In three closed-door meetings held in May and June, top ATF officials separately asked firearms-industry leaders, law enforcement officials, and representatives from gun-violence prevention groups what current regulations could be eliminated without risking public safety, according to attendees who went to one or more of the meetings.

An agenda for a May 22 meeting with gun-industry leaders, obtained by The Trace, asked attendees to consider three questions: what impact current regulations have on gun-violence prevention; what regulations need to be repealed, replaced, or modified, and what regulations are outdated.

We could repeal quite a few without thinking much about it.

The NRA and Philando Castille

Still nothing from them. But Dana Loesch thinks it was a bad thing.

Gun sales peak?

Looks like June showed a drop in gun sales but it was still the second highest number for June.

LA gun permits

Not very many given to blacks, Hispanics and women. And very few given out in general.

Why are anti-gun activists so violent?

Anti-gun shill Ladd Everitt:

Oh, and dont worry, I am not writing this to ask you to commit to nonviolence. If you believe violence can be conquered with violence, so be it.

Well, OK.

SHUSH Act

It’s a stupid name for a bill but I like it. It could basically remove classification of suppressors as NFA firearm.s

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
