But of course

Blame the victims: Gun theft from legal owners is on the rise, quietly fueling violent crime across America

Yes. But they are fun to shoot.

Are Revolvers Pass?

I have a revolver. A Ruger Match Champion. It is hands-down my favorite gun to shoot at the range. I’d never seriously consider carrying it every day. It’s heavy and only holds six shots. The M&P is fairly light and holds 18 BBs.

I’ve considered a pocket revolver but I’m thinking a single stack 9mm would be better.

Excellent

There will be a floor vote on National Reciprocity. But:

However, as predicted by Rep. Tom Massie (R-KY) the Fixed NICS bill has been merged with concealed carry reciprocity. It is now Title II of HR 38. Massie goes on to say that when the bill hits the Senate, carry reciprocity will be dropped and only the Fix NICS portion approved. Then given different bills have passed the House and Senate it will go to a conference committee who will only report out the Fix NICS portion of the bill. Rep. Dina Titus (D-NV) has offered an amendment to the bill being considered in the Rules Committee that would drop the carry portion of the bill.

Registration leads to confiscation

Hawaii has a gun registry. They also have a registry of medical marijuana users. So, you know where this is going? Yup, people who show up on both lists got a letter from the police saying turn in the guns.

The science is settled

Dogs really are smarter than cats. Having two of each, it’s my experience that both are smartish but in different ways. Dogs, being social, are more in tune with social cues from other dogs and humans. Cats don’t give a shit. If you point, a dog will look where you are pointing. A cat won’t give a shit. At most, it will sniff your finger.

If you leave the house for two days and leave your cat enough food for three days, when you get back, there will be food left. If you do the same for the dog, when you get back he’ll have not eaten for two days.

Good

National reciprocity cleared the judicial committee. I’m not going to get my hopes up about it just yet but progress is progress.

Gun Buy-Back Scalability.

Inherited it from my wife’s grandmother.

Those look cool

Chris talks about some electronic ear plugs. They look like they would, indeed, be more comfortable and convenient. But $300 for ears seems a bit high.

Gun cases at the supreme court

They are not going to SCOTUS:

Perhaps the most noteworthy denials came in two cases involving gun rights: Kolbe v. Hogan, a challenge to Marylands ban on semi-automatic rifles and large-capacity magazines, passed in the wake of the mass shooting at a Connecticut elementary school; and Norman v. Florida, a challenge to the states ban on the open carrying of guns in public.

Having the supreme court on our side doesn’t really seem to be helping.

Pew pew

Heh

Good guy with a gun

Stops bad guy with a gun:

“The manager, who was a concealed weapons permit holder, came out and engaged in gunfire in the parking lot,” La Sata said. “The manager fled back inside the building, being chased by the gunman. Another Schlenker employee, who also had concealed weapons permit, engaged in gunfire with the suspect.”

I recently bought one and need to get it to the range

Shot Timers Dont Lie

Trouble is, every time I get to the range, I wind up taking new shooters. I spend my time with them and don’t practice with a timer.

A new record

Black Friday posted a record breaking 200,000 NICS checks.

Unpossible

Where Great Britain Used To Be is seeing a 27% increase in gun crime. Good thing guns are, effectively, banned there.

Why 2K?

A thing that I’d never really thought about is when someone tests a gun (usually on the internet), the 2,000 round test seems to be some sort of standard. Is there a particular reason for this number? If so, I’m unaware of it.

Also, some tests seem to be just tests and others are “torture tests”. I don’t know why it’s torture to shoot a gun that’s made to be shot.

This seems like a big deal

Jared Keller:

The $700 billion 2018 National Defense Authorization Act that Congress sent to President Donald Trumps desk on Nov. 16 included an amendment that required the Secretary of the Army to transfer a cache of small arms and ammo no longer actively issued for military service to the government-sponsored Civilian Marksmanship Program, including the M1911 and M1911A1 pistols, the M1 Garand, and .22 rimfire rifles.

I’m not a 1911 guy but I think owning one of those would be pretty cool.

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