On Friday, Caleb had scheduled a post regarding the press check. He simply posed a question, and in true bloggy nature all of you answered with varying degrees of opinions and several insults. As you are all now stuck with…
Ah, the press check. The way truly paranoid people make sure the bullet gremlins haven’t magically removed the round from the chamber of your carry gun. Some people will say that it’s an unnecessary measure that can cause bullet setback, and other people say it should be an essential part of your daily routine. So bro, do you even press check?
Editor’s note: today’s guest post is by Cecil Burch, renowned martial artist and self-defense instructor. You’ll see his posts appearing here on Gun Nuts from time to time. I have been training some form of Martial Art/H2H fighting method for…
I was busy on the range most of the weekend. Saturday evening after returning home after a long, sunburned day I find out that a free speech event had been attacked by two AK-wielding islamists intent on murdering everyone there.…
A ported Deagle brand Deagle? Yes please. Can you imagine how rad/stupid this would be with an Aimpoint H1 in a low mount clamped on to the forward rail? Plus, this one is a .357 Magnum, so you know with that weird brake/porting assembly up front it’s just going to shoot fire everywhere, be loud as f***, and completely retarded and totally awesome.
Amidst the hubbub of the HK P30SK launch at NRA, this little gem slipped quietly under the radar. What little gem, you’re asking, as you pointedly note I’ve only shown you a picture of a product card. This little gem:
Ever since I made the Tanfoglio cool by shooting it at Bianchi Cup in 2012, the Stock/Elite line of guns has been taking off in USPSA Production division. But it hasn’t really been adopted by IDPA shooters, partly because it weighs approximately 1.8 million pounds and was hard to sneak under IDPA’s weight requirements.
I’m thinking of getting back into either Single Stack or L10 later this year. Those have always been my favorite semi-auto divisions, because the equipment you can run in them is frequently more relevant to what people carry every day than Production is anymore. Now that Production is being overtaken by 43 ounce DA/SA steel pastablasters, maybe it’s time to go old school.
If you’ve been paying attention to the news lately, you’ve doubtlessly seen images of carnage and destruction coming out of Baltimore. You may have even heard the mayor of Baltimore let this little gem fly: This quite naturally brings…
Do you think they could survive getting shot with a .223 right along the spine?
We all have that moment – the sun is shining, birds are singing, your sights look good, the trigger feels just right, and you shoot better than you’ve ever shot anything before, or maybe ever again. I’ve seen guys at that moment, and I was fortunate to capture my personal experience with that moment on video.
To this day, that Tanfo Stock II in .38 Super is the best pure competition gun I’ve ever shot.
That beard though. And also the part where you can see bits of the battery and stuff fly out the back of the phone.
Tom Givens of Rangemaster fame recently sat down to do a podcast with Mike Seeklander. I suggest you listen to it as many times as you need to digest the wealth of practical information contained in it.
Back on April Fool’s Day I ran a joking “review” of the UMP45 where I pulled all the gun’s data from Battlefield: Hardline. I had fun writing it, but what I didn’t touch on is the fact that I’m utterly stupid for the UMP45 and would move heaven and earth to get one.
Here’s something you can file into the “Good idea” category from Bushmaster. A simple, no-nonsense 16 inch carbine with a chrome lined barrel that comes from the factory with a red dot optic and streets for less than a grand.
Here’s another one from NRA Annual Meetings that I’m genuinely interested in. Proving that the “red dot equipped pistol” is so hot right now, Kahr has jumped into the game with their lineup of Gen2 pistols.
