Throwback Thursday: The M3A1 Grease Gun — A Desperate Gun for Desperate Times

At a time when Total War demanded every measure of effort industrial, economic, and spiritual that a nation might muster, the United States attempted to produce a quality submachine gun that was both effective and inexpensive while remaining amenable to mass production.

The Fourth of July: Celebrating a Life Free From Tyranny

July 4th is a day we “oohh” and “ahh” over impressive firework displays and enjoy a charcoal grilled all-American burger with family and friends. It is also the most important date in American history. July 4th, also called Independence Day, is the day the colonists officially declared their independence from Great Britain, securing our freedom and liberty to this day. As gun owners, we understand how important these unalienable rights are. Without this day, 237 years ago and the relentlessness that the colonists fought during the Revolutionary War our liberty and freedoms would have been replaced with tyranny and severe firearms restrictions. On July 4, not only do we celebrate a free nation, but we also honor those 56 revolutionary men who secured our right to keep and bear arms.
