I had the opportunity of speaking with a group of very intelligent individuals this past week. We got on the subject of Sony and The Interview. I have seen zero articles cover this information about Sony Pictures Entertainment. It is important information and you will see why.

Originally developed to be used in bloodless surgery on limbs, the Mechanical Blood Volumizer or MBV is a medical device that can be carried in a pack or kit and applied to victims of trauma at the base level.
This morning I had a meeting with a fellow business professional. In addition the business at hand, the topic turned to guns and concealed carry. My friend is a military veteran with some experience as a “Special Investigator” with a government agency, but he hasn’t carried a gun on a regular basis for nearly twenty years. The specifics of our discourse focused on concealed carry for himself and for his wife.
Regardless of your individual motivation, if you are like tens of thousands of other Americans, you have purchased at least one AR-15 style rifle. These rifles, based on the original Gene Stoner design, come in numerous configurations from myriad manufacturers, but for all intents and purposes, they operate or function the same way.
We have seen it play out time and again, a piece of human debris goes on a killing spree and the immediate reaction of the Progressive Statist is to pass more legislation, i.e. changing a color. “There ought to be a law!” is the rallying cry.
Though I have previously read various versions of the psychology experiment referenced below, this morning while perusing my email it occurred to me that this is an excellent avenue to consider an all too prevalent phenomenon in firearms training. Take a moment to consider the following: Have you rated us on iHeartRadio yet? Click Here to “Heart” us and Leave a…
The AK63D is Century’s version of the classic AK-47 “underfolder” model. This iteration of the venerable Kalashnikov was inevitable as most every battle rifle in modern history has at one point or another been modified for paratroopers or mechanized infantry.
Regardless of your personal leanings, if you have taken the steps to become a firearms instructor, it is time to set your bias aside. There are tens of thousands of part-time or occasional firearms instructors in the United States.
Gut check time. Many of you folks went out during the last few years and spent hundreds and thousands of dollars on guns and gear. With a collective effort, you set the black rifle market on its ear and pushed sales and production to record levels.
A few years ago, Colt Manufacturing introduced a new rifle called the LE901. The base rifle chambered the .308 Winchester cartridge, despite this fact, the gun was not just another AR-10 clone.
We’d like to take a moment to follow up two previous AK pistol articles “Best of Both Worlds” and “The Ultimate Truck Gun”. Both of these firearms are Kalashnikov style pistols available from Century Arms. The M85 PAP is imported from Serbia and the C39 is made in the USA.
Could the Century Arms C39 pistol be the perfect truck gun? For many of you northeastern Yankees, “truck gun” may be a foreign term. Please allow a moment for elaboration and clarification.
Take note of the date and time. Check your clocks and your calendar. Write it down if you have to, I’m about to admit an error on my part. That’s right, my judgment was clouded. I mistakenly thought that when addressing the matter of traumatic first aid, life-saving measures used to stop-gap a potentially terminal injury that “the choir” would understand.
“The 7.62×40 has no business performing as well as it does, but it does.” That quote from Bill Wilson, founder of Wilson Combat pretty much sums up lethal force of the new 7.62×40 Wilson Tactical round.
Every firearms instructor worth their salt will tell you that when it comes to choosing a defensive handgun, or any firearm for that matter, that function is the number one consideration. That advice is really is a no-brainer or a truism.
While sitting down to pen this review of the Kahr K9 pistol, the previous statement seemed to be the most natural analogy I could use. There are dozens of compact pistols available for the American shooter.
Recently a colleague offered the observation that anti-gun or gun control laws are blatant and obvious failures. He pointed to the crime rates in Chicago, D.C. and New York as examples of areas with severely restrictive gun control policies and yet record-breaking violent crime.
Today, those afflicted with the condition we will refer to as Forum Balls are multiplying at an alarming rate. Embracing the anonymous screen or…
Early this year, while perusing the quarterly catalog/flyer from Century Arms, I came across a product that piqued my interest. The Zastava PAP M85 NP is advertised as an AK-style pistol chambered in 5.56x45mm NATO feeding from standard AR-15/M-16 magazines.
The simple response to the recent Executive Order issued by Our Dear Leader banning the importation of small arms from Russia is to say “I don’t care. I don’t own or desire to own an AK.” An additionally common response is, “No big deal, I’ll buy one of the new American AK’s or one from a country other than Russia.”
When I attended USMC Infantry School, our first aid training mirrored that of the Red Cross civilian program. While battlefield trauma was talked about, little emphasis was put on self-aid and buddy-aid. The primary care giver on the battlefield was the Navy Corpsman and your first aid kit was carried merely to give the Corpsman some extra gear with which…
When it comes to deciding to use deadly force, is will more important than skill? We’ve all seen the dash-cam videos available on BluTube, YouTube, or “Insert-Cool-Name-Here” Tube.
It’s happened again, another lone nut-job has murdered innocent citizens. No I’m not going to add to the infamy of this piece of human debris that is for some inexplicable reason still stealing oxygen from our planet. This week I add one more to the innumerable reasons why I am glad I don’t subscribe to cable television: 24/7 non-stop Useless Horror.
“I’m not right-wing or left-wing, I consider myself more of a centrist.”. So said one of my acquaintances during a recent conversation. That’s not the first time I’ve heard such a statement or similar expression. Statements like that are nothing more than an illusion of neutrality. The truth is that it is far more common for people to say they…
“I’m not right-wing or left-wing, I consider myself more of a centrist.” so said one of my acquaintances during a recent conversation. That’s not the first time I’ve heard such a statement or similar expression. The truth is that it is far more common for people to say they are a moderate this or that than it is for them to pick a definitive side. We’ve seen this play out for decades as people publicly declare themselves to be “undecided”, “centrist” or “neutral”.
Do you have one or more fire extinguishers in your house? If not, shame on you. Stop reading this and go out and buy one. Now, when is the last time you moved your fire extinguisher? Do you play hide and seek with it, constantly shuffling it from one location to the next? Of course, you don’t. A fire extinguisher is…
Evil abounds in this world; it always has and always will. The great question for those who oppose evil has ever been the method of that opposition. Is it gun control, or no?
“Your ears will get used to the noise.” or “Your ears will toughen up.” are two of the stupidest statements I have ever heard regarding gunfire and hearing protection. The sad truth, unfortunately, is that I heard those words or similar ones uttered far too often during my formative years as a shooter and hunter.
If you consider firearms today, the vast majority are built with the one size fits all or happy medium concept. Military battle rifles are designed to fit the body size of the “average soldier”. Whether we are discussing the M-16, AK-47, or G3, these rifles were sized for what was considered “average” and that concept has worked very well in practice.
For the last three decades I’ve had the good fortune to take part in some of the best firearms and tactics training available to the US Military, Law Enforcement, and citizen alike. Small arms trainers realized long ago that for any training program to be practical, the troops needed to shoot at night.
Gun Control has been a term floated by social elitists for decades. The first official use of the term in the U.S. came from the “Gun Control Act of 1968.”
“Watch their hands. It’s the hands that will kill you.” That advice has been offered in police academy classrooms and in-service training for decades upon decades. Like much that we have heard and learned over the years, if it sounds reasonable and rational, we glom on to it and…
More than twenty years ago I recall one of my firearms instructors saying, “There are two kinds of shooters, those who’ve had negligent discharges and those who will.” At the time some of the other students scoffed and made comments about it not ever happening to them or only ‘untrained’ people having them. From…
The old saying goes, “Those who cannot do teach.” While there may be some validity to that, when it comes to coaching others, some of the best shooting instructors are those who have not only done it, but done it well. Consider professional sports leagues like the NFL and the NBA. Many of the most successful coaches are those who…
