They also have the local hardware store

Some paper Where Great Britain Used to Be is butthurt that someone bought the pieces to assemble a bomb from amazon. Without security checks! Whatever those are. So, you wanna restrict sales of pressure cookers and nails? I can get parts for bombs and guns at Lowe’s.

So, what caliber for 50 states?

There is a non-zero percent chance that national reciprocity could pass. What gun would you carry that you could carry in all 50 states?

I’m not familiar enough with Cali gun laws to opine. So, I say this not factoring in any of their bizarro, oppressive laws. I think I would probably carry a S&W Shield in 9mm. Meets arbitrary magazine restrictions and has a safety, LCI and dumbass warning to comply with MA’s arcane gun laws. I don’t know if the single stack Glock meets the MA requirements, otherwise it’d be a fine gun too.

Of course, I’d like reciprocity passed that any gun legal in your state can be carried anywhere. Hey, I can dream, right?

And what about you?

Finicky ammo

Tam’s HK had some issues with TulAmmo. I have a couple of cases of it and the Morrissey has had no issues with it. But I’ve known some friends of mine to have issues with it out of their non M&P guns.

The Humblebee. It looks pretty cool. And it is not an AR or 1911, a rarity these days.

That’s not retro. This is retro:

It is interesting how the general looks of ARs changes every five years or so. And what sorts of gizmos people slap on them.

$1M is a lot to pay for a piece of junk no one will use

There is a supposed “smart holster” and its designers won $1M for the design. Yeah, voice commands and RFID will work 100% of the time, even in stressful situations. NYPD officials presided in the judging. Make them carry one of these blocks of fail.

Via Sebastian, who notes:

But that holster is dangerous. Because the person who designed it likely knows nothing about guns or gun safety. Ironic, dont you think?

National reciprocity only if you have a permit from your state

Congress has taken up the issue it seems. However, if you can’t get a permit in your state (i.e., you live in MA, NY, MD and others), your out state permit doesn’t apply. TBolt explains.

Looks a little cumbersome to me

Surefire has a new watch out with a light designed for use in shooting a handgun. I would think a weapon-mounted light would be a better option.

Headline: On duty, in uniform, suburban cops raffled off assault rifle

From the article:

[Police] were allowed to hawk $10 raffle tickets for a chance to win an AR-15-style semiautomatic rifle as a fund-raiser for their union. They also raffled off a Ruger 9mm handgun.

Well, which is it?

Heard around the house

My son is learning to cook. We started with Ramen noodles. He sets the pot of water on the stove, turns it on and stares at the pot. And this conversations happens:

Me: There’s an old saying that a watched pot never boils.

Number 2: That literally cannot possibly be true.

Me: Well, sure. But it really relays that it seems like water takes a long time to boil when you’re waiting on it.

Number 2: Then just say that.

He’s not wrong.

Sort of want

An integrally suppressed .50 caliber muzzle loader that is not a firearm and can be shipped right to your door. Via Tam, who notes:

That sound you hear is Diane Feinstein’s teeth grinding and Bloomberg’s distal sphincter slamming shut. Glorious!

If the price was about $400 cheaper, I’d buy one definitely. But a grand is a bit steep for a novelty.

Not valid in New Jersey.

Layers of editorial oversight

The increasingly irrelevant NY Post calls a Red Ryder BB gun an assault rifle.
