Here are the factual data from the CDC there were 7 firearm-related homicides for every 100,000 Americans in 1993 (see light blue line in chart). By 2013 (most recent year available), the gun homicide rate had fallen by nearly 50% to only 3.6 homicides per 100,000 population. Contrary to what the left wing mainstream media and gun-control advocates say.
Most people who make such claim that the US gun violence and death surpass countries such as, the UK, Norway or Australia. They all failed to realize that they are comparing over 300 million people vs 25 million. You have to compare per capita. Compare the continental US vs the whole Europe now go figure…
Unloading and reloading a round multiple times causes the bullet to setback. Also it causes dings and dents on the head and rear of the casing. Primers are not so much of a concern since they are a tad below the rim and unlikely to contact the breach face.
After several rechambering, it’s time to shoot your premium HP round on your next range trip. How Often Do You Take A Round Out Of The Chamber?
Last article I wrote about Choosing the Best Defensive Handgun Ammo. Now let’s take a look at finding the best self-defense ammo for your AR-15 platform rifle for those of you who consider using one as a defensive firearm. The approved list of 5.56/.223 by Dr. Gray Roberts who is the world’s leading authority on would ballistics, his information is credible. I recommend using barrier blind loads (in particular the Federal Fusion line due to the lower price, availability, and performance is inline with Gold Dot and other LEO bonded .223 rounds) over other types since you don’t know what type of physical environment you might be around when the unexpected happens.
Take a look of what kind of damage a .223 (contains graphic contents) round does to the body You won’t see this type of wounds with pistol.
Governor Terry McAuliffe and his Attorney General Mark Herring kicked the hornet’s nest. After denying 25 states (6 million people) permit holders and restricting firearms in state buildings. On January the 18th , we had over 1200 freedom, Second Amendment supporters showing up despite the frigid temperatures. This huge turn out send a strong message to Virginia law makers.
A lot of folks met with their delegates, senators and house of representatives. Private groups and VCDL teams covered every legislator’s office and many legislators saw three or even four teams come by! Handing out printed papers with the bills we support and ones we opposed. Each bill has comments elaborating them and reader-friendly. VCDL 2016 Legislation Tracking Tool
The general assembly building was pack almost every floor with people wearing guns save lives stickers. The anti-gunners were outnumbered big time. 😆
We had one Senator Dave Marsden with his silly banner saying ” Welcome gun lobby day members. I know you mean well. But, if it isn’t to much trouble, please stop trying to save our lives… Too many people are getting killed in the effort”
Doesn’t he know criminals are the trouble ones? Many people open carrying posted and took pictures in front of his banner. And by the way, over a thousand loaded guns were carried in to the general assembly and not a sing shot fired. It was probably the safest place to be in Virginia at the time. No one started shooting anyone over disputes, arguments or such. The progressive left always say angry gun owners, and someone is going to get shot, woo… We can’t have to many guns! OMG!

Everyday more and more women are buying guns and getting their concealed carry permits. This means that more will start to carry. But what are your options? For sure I don’t advice anyone to carry their gun in their purse. The purse can easily become detach from you, thieves always target your purse. You might forget it somewhere, your child might put his or her hands in. Nothing like carry your gun securely on your persons.
The elite democrats have gone overboard, they are desperate to push their agenda, now they want to rewrite the 2nd Amendment altogether. Check this out, “to ensure that the right to keep and bear arms is not unlimited, and for other purposes. Are you kidding me? What other purposes are they referring to? Now here is the original phrase taken from the 2nd Amendment, “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Insanity screams here, are they going to try to remove or change the 1st Amendment too? Of course they are. Here is an example; Yale students sign ‘petition’ to repeal the first amendment. Starting with the schools and colleges, the left are planting the seeds of socialism in to our children’s minds. Continue reading “Stop The Semi Auto Gun Ban Of 2015” »
As most of us know that today’s common caliber handgun rounds are not true power stoppers. Premium hollow points does help a lot. Just because your caliber preference is for the largest you can control and shoot in a relax state of mind at the range, it doesn’t mean you will effectively neutralize your assailant in the shortest time possible while under stress. Your are in a tense moment, you got a moving target advancing towards you, the faster you can place those followup shots on target, the better. The more rounds your pistol can hold is a plus. Remember, your goal is to stop the threat ASAP and survive!
Speed, precision, accuracy are the goals and recoil is they magic factor. The less the recoil the better you can control your gun. Those who can control a 10mm or a .44 magnum will probably be able to better control smaller calibers. “Shooting well” in the defensive context means being able to control realistic strings of fire, not single shots.
A lot of folks out there really like the H&K’s new striker fired pistol, the VP9. It feels great in your hands and shoots very accurate. But before you get one and fully trust your life with it, let’s find out how reliable it is by doing some torture tests. Thinking you’ll never go through such harsh environments or situations where your gun gets thrown, don’t be so sure that it will never happen. I never like to jump on a new product that just gets introduce in to the market. It needs to have a longer track record. I would say at least 4 years (but that’s a person preference) just like with the the M&P Shield. On the other hand, the Glock 43 is probably on great reliable gun but it just came out.
This torture test was done by The Military Arms Channel.
Can the VP9 take a beating and still function like the Smith & Wesson M&Ps and Glocks? Time to find out!
Adding an additional point of discussion. You vs A Third Party Conflict Be careful when getting involve in a third-party incident, it can be a double edge sword. You want to be the Good Samaritan or the hero by trying help that person who you think is being beaten furiously. If you’re going to get involve, you better be absolutely sure on what is going on. Here are some examples when to get involve and when not to. Continue reading “What Not To Do As A Concealed Carrier & The Good Samaritan” »
