Ammo For Sale

And some times, they’re careless:

Gun-friendly New Hampshire is back in the spotlight after a lawmaker dropped a loaded firearm this week in a House hearing on a kindergarten bill.

But lawmakers packing guns on statehouse grounds and occasionally handling them recklessly isnt unique to the Live Free or Die state. At least 19 states, from Kansas to Texas to Idaho, allow legislators to carry guns in parts of or the entire capitol. In a handful of others that prohibit it, such as Oklahoma, lawmakers sometimes bypass security measures in order to carry concealed firearms.

Ive testified in a number of states where Ive had legislators show me they were carrying even though they werent allowed to do so, said John Lott, president of the Crime Prevention Resource Center, which has gathered info on guns in statehouses.

No violent incidents of lawmakers carrying guns at statehouses have been recorded in recent memory. Carelessness is another matter.

One thing about this election is the Republicans are introducing pro gun bills

Odds of passing are slim but there is a bill to eliminate the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. The agency has had its share of scandal and incompetence. And they fail ridiculously at one of their jobs which is to run your name through the NICS and process your $200 tax for NFA items.

Wouldn’t hurt my feelings to see them go.

The AR Podium

From Fab Defense. Interesting design but could be a solution in search of a problem. I’m betting changing mags will take some practice:

Another AR caliber

The 22 Nosler:

Nosler Inc. announced the release of the 22 Nosler, a new cartridge designed to transform any standard AR-15 into the fastest, most powerful .22 caliber available for the platform, with the least amount of modification. The new addition to Noslers cartridge family delivers 30 percent more energy and is nearly 300 fps faster than a 223 Remington/5.56 NATO round.

People keep trying out new calibers and people still buy a lot of 5.56.

Like a gun library

A recent MO rule bans people who enter the capitol from carrying guns. Well, one state rep is none too happy about it. And he’s put a sign on his door saying that he will loan guns to anyone with a carry permit:

Effective immediately, any constituent of mine with a CCW that was not allowed to bring his firearm into the Capitol may stop by my office and borrow one for the duration of the visit


Things I learned today

Caleb’s video on the 5 best guns for concealed carry, where I learned they now make 15 round magazines for Sig P229s. I have about 10 or so 13 rounders.

And AR-15s and 1911s galore

What’s wrong with this picture?

So, Guns and Ammo has a Guide to AK-47s coming out. Here’s the cover:

Is that the AR-47 or the AK-15? No. It’s an AR that takes AK mags.

Gun laws you would change

JT has some thoughts. Geography tends to influence people’s choices on this one.

You caliber sucks

And so does mine. And so does your gun. And mine. There’s enough internet for today

I wouldn’t say the 45ACP sucks. But I do agree that it is likely the least advantageous of the major carry calibers:

They took our jobs

This time, Tennessee is getting some California jobs:

A supplier to the Italian gunmaker Beretta is leaving San Diego and relocating its headquarters near Beretta’s new U.S. manufacturing plant in Gallatin, northeast of Nashville.

The deal exemplifies the type of ripple-effect economic developers strive for when recruiting major companies, as Gallatin did with Beretta, which invested $45 million to open a plant that can produce 500,000 firearms a year at capacity and employ 300 people or more.

The company is Axem Distributing Inc.

Speaking of journalism and guns being boring

The Paper of Making Up The Record has a bit where they poll “experts” and the electorate on what gun controls they would be happy with. Surprising no one, they discovered most people support all the gun control. As to their supposed experts:

Our expert survey asked dozens of social scientists, lawyers and public health officials how effective each of 29 policies would be in reducing firearm homicide deaths, regardless of their political feasibility or cost.

Did you think maybe try a gun or gun law expert? You know, someone who really is an expert in this field?

Interesting new suppressor design

Delta P Design Brevis II Ultra Silencer: It’s one piece and is short and fat. I’m curious about the internals of this thing.

I do wonder how you could clean it.


One problem with journalist and democrat (but I repeat myself) arguments for gun control is that they are boring.

First a twinkie

Now, a pineapple as a suppressor.

Can they make the bullet trail look like a rainbow too?

In what apparently is not a joke, the US Army is asking for biodegradable ammo that has seeds in it to grow plants. I suppose when you’re out there shooting people in the face for a living, it’s good to be environmentally conscious.

The request is for grenades and tank rounds. This may actually be a decent idea but I question their priorities.

Hearing protection act introduced

The American Suppressor Association:

The American Suppressor Association (ASA) is pleased to announce the reintroduction of the Hearing Protection Act (HPA) by Rep. Jeff Duncan (SC-03) and Rep. John Carter (TX-31). This historic piece of legislation, which was originally introduced by Rep. Matt Salmon (AZ-05) in the 114th Congress, will remove suppressors from the purview of the National Firearms Act (NFA), replacing the antiquated federal transfer process with an instantaneous NICS background check. The HPA also includes a provision to refund the $200 transfer tax to applicants who purchase a suppressor after October 22, 2015, which was the original date of introduction.

The hysteria is already starting from the democrats and the press (but I repeat myself).

Sebastian has a post on making the case for the bill. You know, there are rules about the noise level a person can be subjected to while on the job. And this is for the safety of the workers. Suppressors fit the bill for that. And I’d like to see a suppressor only indoor range.

What gun laws would you change?

Well, which ones wouldn’t you?
