    It was only 7 months ago....

    ...that Walmart enacted a store-wide policy of prohibiting the open carry of firearms in their stores, and to pull off the shelves all of the handgun ammunition and ammo that could be used in what they considered an "assault weapon"... "Walmart CEO Doug McMillon issued a memo Tuesday that...

    Should Young Minorities Be Allowed To Buy Guns ?

    As much as I am against gun control, I do believe criminals (those with records) shouldn't be free to buy guns. Their records should be public information, and available to gun sellers. This wasn't the case with Nicolas Cruz, the Parkland Massacre killer, whose criminal activity was covered...

    Wanna see how 1124 rounds of 9mm starts out?

    First you have to de-prime and re-size the cases. Took me all morning on this single stage RCBS press, but the job is done. Next they go into the vibrating case tumbler so they're all pretty and shiny. Then comes separating them by manufacturer, checking them for splits and cracks, measuring...

    44 Magnum

    Got bored today so I loaded up 100 rounds of .44 mag. I used Hornady 240 grain XTP JHP behind 19.6 grains of Alliant 2400 and Winchester WLP primers. The OAL was 1.608" and the measured velocity averaged around 1343 fps. That's a full magnum load and gives 957 foot pounds of energy through the...

    Happy Murder Year Baltimore, Chicago, St. Louis

    Must have been something President Trump tweeted. Or those darned white conservative Christian gun-owning NRA members. They're the worst. "ST. LOUIS – 2020 started off on a deadly note in St. Louis. Five people were killed and nine others wounded within a 12-hour span in separate shootings..."...

    Attention W@lmart Shoppers: Great Deals on Closeout Ammunition

    As you probably heard, Walmart is going to quit selling any ammunition that goes in a handgun or short-barreled rifle. I read on another discussion board how people were getting good deals the last couple days, so I decided to check it out. I reload most of the ammo I shoot, but I did walk away...

    Almost 18 MILLION AR-15 Rifles Now in American Hands

    422 million guns out there in America, 17,740,000 of which are AR-15 variants. Of course, you probably want to take this story with a grain of salt. The number is more than likely higher, considering how many are being built from parts and kits. "AR-15s and other similar rifles may remain a...

    Gun Range Day - 11/5/19

    Beautiful day for a trip to the public range: Sunny and a high of 33 degrees today. I found a good deal on 500-round bricks of Aguila .22 Super Extra ammo at $25 per brick, so I bought 5 of them. It has a 40 grain solid point bullet that's rated at 1,255 feet per second, and is made in Mexico...

The Model 1914 was in 7.65x17mm (,32 ACP) and was exported to France for use in the military. This model is the commercial version made after WWI. It holds nine rounds of...

    A mediocre day at the range is better than a good day anywhere else

    I've had this 1978 Ruger Standard .22 pistol for about 10 years now. Iron sights are the shits, so I picked up a scope mount and a used Burris FastFire II red-dot reflex sight at the gun show two weekends ago. The mount cost me $5.00 and I gave $15 for the sight. I got to sight it in this...

    San Francisco Backs Down AFter NRA Lawsuit

    The communists lost one today, although I think they didn't lose hard enough. The San Francisco Board of Supervisors actually committed a felony when they tried to pass the resolution that called for the city to investigate ties between its contractors and vendors and the NRA. The city also...

    Most GOP respondents — 55 percent — were in favor of training and arming teachers.

    Majority of voters oppose arming teachers President Trump has touted arming teachers as a solution to combating the rise of gun violence. Last year, the president endorsed several National Rifle Association-backed proposals to give teachers guns. House Democrats have passed a number of...

    City of San Francisco Sued

    New Jersey law banning large capacity magazines falls flat

    New Jersey’s “large-capacity” magazine ban hasn’t resulted in lawmakers’ desired effect as no magazines have been turned over and the state’s residents are reportedly hiding the banned magazines. When the magazine ban went into effect in December of last year, state officials encouraged...

    The Offical "Walmart Discontinues Some Ammo Sales" thread

    So they really went full retard. Like Shotgun Willy said in the movie "Tropic Thunder", "Never go full retard." After hearing on the news this morning that Walmart was going to discontinue selling handgun and any ammunition that could be used in a "short-barreled rifle", and that they would no...

    Americans...the shootings wont go down...they will just keep going up.

    All you have to do is to look at the trends in mass shootings to prove me right. Guns are not the issue. People going off the edge is the issue. When I was a kid growing up in the 50's and 60's we didn't have any mass shootings. We had plenty of guns to kill people with. The mass shootings all...

    This weekend's garage sale gun finds

    Hasn't been too bad of a weekend, I liberated three firearms from the hands of some goobers at three different yard sales. Most people don't put guns on the yard sale tables and when they do, they're over-priced. That's why I ask at every garage sale if they have any guns... The one in the...

    Ok girls: "Light days" vs. "Heavy days" - What do you carry for them?

    Every girl knows that every day could be different. Some days the bloodletting might be fairly light, and other days is might be "heavy." Obviously you could carry something to remedy either situation but as every girl knows, there's not always enough room in her purse, pocket, or whatever. So...

    Question for Dimz

    If (as you claim) the wall will do little to nothing to stop the flow of drugs and illegals from entering the country. . . How do you expect mere laws with no physical barriers at all to keep guns out of the hands of criminals on the streets? You have some splaining to do!

    An ordinary day at the gun range is better than a great day doing anything else

    I decided to take a range day this morning, since I've been reloading quite alot of ammunition. I took a 30-06, a WW2 Japanese 6.5mmx50 Arisaka, a .44 magnum revolver, and a 9mm pistol. A good range day requires alot of stuff, so here it was loaded in the back of the car... The first firearm...

    FBI: Record High 8 Million Illegal Immigrants Tried to Buy Guns in 2018

    Liberals are rabid about gun-control, but this is one story you'll never hear on CNN or MSNBC. The poor "immigrants" are just buying the guns that Americans won’t. "They have already committed a criminal act by staying in the country illegally, yet a number of the illegal aliens attempted to...

    Anyone else carry concealed to church?

    If you do, why? If you don't, why not? I carry in church because I carry everywhere else. Being in a church doesn't mean there's any less chance of being caught in an active-shooter situation.

    What's with liberal's creepy obsession that guns=murder?

    The rabid anti-gun left doesn't seem to comprehend that there are more reasons to own firearms, than shooting people. The most obvious reason to feed yourself and you family. And then there's sport shooting, target shooting, ammunition reloading, and other competitive shooting events. Hell, it's...
