If You Only Had Four Pieces of Gear…
SHTFblog - are YOU ready? Here’s one of my favorite “What if…” games to play with other outdoorsmen. The scenario: You’re canoeing down a river on a solo camping trip and you get caught in some rapids you didn’t know were there.  Boom!  Your canoe tips over and most of your gear and your canoe is gone.  Swept away and destroyed. You’re 25 miles from civilization and you neglected to...

Supreme Court May Decide if it Will Hear Gun Case as Early as Tomorrow
(gunssavelives.net) Since the landmark Heller decision in the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS), the court has been hesitant to take on any hard hitting Second Amendment cases. Specifically, the court has turned down several cases which would have allowed it to rule on firearm carry outside of the home (that whole “bear” part of “keep and bear arms”). The court will have yet another chan...

(thefirearmblog.com) by Nathan S.-Small Arms Defense Journal spent some significant ink profiling the development of a new AR-15 platform compatible long-range round. The 6.5x40mm (aka .264 Warrior Magnum) is not to be confused with the (relatively) common 6.5 Grendel.

Glock Pistols- What Breaks and How to Fix It
(activeresponsetraining.net) Written by Greg Ellifritz- OK…let me get this out of the way right off the bat.  I carry a Glock pistol during about 95% of my waking hours.  My police duty gun is a Glock 21 in .45acp.  A  Glock 26 or a Glock 19 in 9mm are constant companions in my off-duty hours.  I like Glock pistols.  But are they perfect?  Not a chance.

Gun Review: NAA Mini Revolver
From TheTruthAboutGuns.com By Jeremy S- In the world of production firearms, there aren’t many smaller than the offerings from North American Arms.
