Using your sights

You Cant Use Your Sights in a Gunfight: Another Myth That Just Wont Die

Also, watch both videos. The first for it’s rather impressive shooting skills. And the second to see how people were taught to shoot in the past. We have:

  • No ear protection
  • No eye protection
  • A draw that requires the shooter to point the gun at themselves
  • And, it appears, at anyone standing behind them
  • “Shooting from the hip” has gone from FBI training to silly, anti-gun buzzword
  • Crouching down to fire
  • And little BS when the cop outdrew the guy with the gun
  • It’s kind of amazing to think that modern shooting evolved from that, if you ask me.

    But you know who could afford $150K in advertising?

    The NRA.

    A gun control group and some millenials are butthurt that the NRA can actually by ads:

    Leaked Snapchat emails: Gun safety charity told to pay or NRA ads may appear on videos

    But that’s not what seems to have happened. SnapChat sells ads. Obviously, they want ad money. Makes perfect sense to reach out to those on either side of the issue. Letting one side know that was possible while trying to sell them ads is a sales technique.

    Obama’s last minute ammo ban is gone

    Secretary of the Interior Zinke overturned it. Good.

    Life in the future

    A new electronic gizmo that counts how many shots you’ve fired or how many you’ve got left. Unfortunately, it seems to get in the way of all the other useful things one could do instead.

    The Best Revolver In The World

    This is actually quite a good video:

    Reasonable discussion of the limitations of revolvers and just how fun they are to shoot. I concur.

    Clear Holster

    Raven Concealment has introduced a clear version of their Eidolon holster:

    Pretty neat. They, of course, don’t make it for anything that’s not a 9mm Glock.

    Obamacare repeal?

    The only GOP person of prominence I hear making noises about repealing Obamacare, a promise made by Trump and a lot of GOP congressweasels, Rand Paul. And he’s not too happy:

    I guess you have to pass the bill so you can see what’s in it?

    Seriously, GOP, you ran on this, now do something about it. Looks Paul is just about the only one trying. And apparently it gets worse:

    Sen. Rand Paul physically denied House GOP Obamacare bill

    If it can happen to the Oscars

    American Institutional Collapse:

    Our elites cant manage any of their jobs. Hollywood cant even put on a simple awards show, much less make a movie worth watching. PewDiePie does a better job of entertaining teenagers than Hollywood can manage. Our political pundits missed both the major stories of the year Brexit and the frigging presidential election, not just blowing both calls but assuring us that it would absolutely go the other way. Since then, theyve continued to blow every major call, like Paul Krugman claiming that the market had no direction but down after the election while it has rallied like never before since then.

    The press and pundits have been wrong for years, mostly due to narrative, politics, and spin. But really miscalling two major elections, that’s just a failure to do their jobs right.

    Stabby and rippy

    I picked up a Shivworks Clinch Pick:

    Your eyes do not deceive you. The sharpened part of the blade is on the “wrong” side. That’s because the knife is designed to be used for pulling, thereby ripping muscles and skin. It fits on the belt horizontal to the ground and is very concealable.

    This is not a utility type knife. So, you don’t cut boxes with it or anything like that. I like the idea of having a knife specifically for self-defense. And I’ll keep the Spyderco Endura Wave for actually doing day to day stuff. Here’s why the wave is cool.

    I’ll be carrying it to see how I like it.

    Suppressed subsonic .50 BMG

    Well, that is pretty cool.

    Trump signs law getting rid of social security gun ban

    This is a good thing. I like how CNN spins it:

    President Donald Trump Tuesday signed a measure nixing a regulation aimed at keeping guns out of the hands of some severely mentally ill people.

    Except that is not what the bill did. Nope, no bias there.

    Keeping an eye on the states

    The ones that are trending blue will be a problem for gun rights. This is why some gun groups are trying to federalize CCW.

    And this gun was just right

    Seems so much sillier if you put it that way.

    This is so 1980s tactical it makes me want to shoot a Calico alongside Mel Gibson and Danny Glover:

    Those chicken wings, though. A lot of guys with no eyes or ears.

    It is interesting to see how shooting has changed over the years.

    Via Subguns

    Speaking of France

    More casualties from mass shootings in France than in the US.

    Today, in bad gun handling

    French sharpshooter injures two after he negligently discharged his gun. He also shot himself in the foot. Sounds like a little too much booger-hook on the bang-switch.

    A VA lawmaker left his handgun unattended in a meeting room. As if that wasn’t bad enough, he also loses points for off body carry and not having a round in the chamber. That’ll get you killed on the streets.

    Glock protests modular handgun award

    Soldier Systems reports that Glock is protesting Sig’s award of the contract for new handguns.

    Will never happen

    The NY Daily News advocates for police departments to start using smart guns. Says the noted gun expert (just kidding, he’s board president of Washington Ceasefire):

    In the current political climate, the most promising way to save lives is by accelerating the adoption of safer firearms. And the best way to do that is by harnessing the purchasing power of police departments.

    The police will not switch to smart guns because smart guns are dumb. And some police have already come out and said they’re not going to be the guinea pigs. Smart guns are not a proven, reliable technology yet. And likely will not ever be.

    Why do they make it hard to give them money?

    There’s a couple of AIWB holsters that I was looking into. However, they only make them for Glock 17s and 19s. The companies are Raven Concealment and CNC holsters. I currently have Raven’s for all of my M&Ps. But was playing around with the idea of AIWB.

    So, JM Custom got my money instead.

    Has it been eight years already?

    The hysteria is hysterical. Today’s “Trump is a puppet installed by the Russians” is the new “Obama is a secret Muslim”.

    Yet, they keep trying

    Gun control has never worked for the democrats.

    National concealed carry reciprocity

    The NRA has issued a statement of its support for the current bill.

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