After the shooting

Looks like the SHARE act hearing has been cancelled. And it’s uncertain if it will be rescheduled.

Sebastian: This isnt a good situation to be in. It was assassinations that brought us the Gun Control Act of 1968.

Yeah, it’s not good for the gun rights side after this.

Deal Alert

I’m a fan of chef knives. I really like the Wusthof 8 inch variant. But for only $30, Amazon has this AUGYMER 8 inch. So, I snatched one up because one is none and two is one or something.

For the price, it’s definitely comparable quality. And weighted just as well. And the wooden handle is nice,

Figured it would happen

Joe predicted it, the violent left. We have an aging Sanders supporter going up and asking congressmen if they were democrat or republican. After affirming they were republican, he grabbed a rifle and started firing. Fortunately, he was engaged by capitol police, who killed him. Classic good guy with a gun scenario.

The violent rhetoric and hysteria from the left may be to blame. But I thought it was us right wing nut jobs who shot up people we don’t like.

It’s almost unbelievable

The Hearing Protection Act was loaded into a relatively easy to pass omnibus bill. I’d have never thought that the GOP would actually advance the bill. This is good news.

The bill also expands FOPA and gets rid of the sporting purposes language.

Sebastian has a summary of the bill here.

This is a big deal. If it passes, it’s great. If it does not, at least the GOP is looking into the gun issue in a good way.

Isn’t everything?

Apparently, pointing out bad training and dangerous practices is racist.

Man shoots self at IPSC match

Tragic:

I dont know if the gun even hit the ground, but evidently he dropped or fumbled it

And likely tried to catch it.

Remember rule 5: Do not try to catch a dropped gun.

A range safety measure

I agree completely, as someone whose had skin cancer a couple of times. Also, lots of water.

Iron sights v. green lasers v. red dots

This is a very interesting study on using different sights. I have a laser on a carry gun. And a RMR on another carry gun. Both are M&Ps. I found the laser, initially, to be more instinctive. It took me rather a lot of practice to get good finding the red dot of the RMR. But now, I have no problem with it.

Purity test

I waited until the dust seemed to settle on this one. But a pro gun guy said something that seemed dumb, likely due to editing from Comedy Central. The internet lynch mob kicked in. Tam is correct. Everyone should, right after one of these things happens, cool their shit and find out what happened before grabbing the pitchforks and torches.

Good advice from Sebastian:

So for Christs sake, for the dozenth or so time: dont talk to the fucking media or Comedy Central. They are snakes with cameras and editing rooms. They will make you look bad. No you cant beat them at this game

I never knew they went away

How Bill Clinton Brought Back the 1911 Pistol. Interesting.

Also, under the AWB, we got the baby Glocks. Since you couldn’t get shiny new 17 round magazines, Glock made a version of the gun smaller and that held 10 rounds.

Derp: Practicing for his role as John Thick

Some of the worst firearm “drill” videos you will ever see. During his “drill”, he manages to:

Get a nice grip on his shirt and not the gun.

Manages to poorly draw a knife.

Almost shoots himself in the hand. Twice.

And puts a round into ceiling at the indoor gun range.

Then it gets better, when he explains the “drill”. If you missed that one, go have a look. I’ll wait. Back? Ok. So, he wants to draw a gun and a knife, stab the assailant in the throat then guy shoot the dude. Why the hell would you do that? I’m not an instructor and don’t play one on the internet. But I would think, at that range, you may not want to draw the gun or the knife. Or you’d probably want to just pick one. And if you’re shooting to stop someone, why would you shoot them in the gut?

Sig won the contract for the new Army handgun. Glock protested. Well, the GAO has rejected the protest and it looks like Sig scored a win.
