Glock announces new factory threaded barrels

Glock announces new factory threaded barrels

At the NRA convention, Glock announced it would be offering factory threaded barrels, as well as new production Glock 17Ls. This is great news for Glock aficionados, as the company has not been as active an innovator as many of their competitors. They are even hinting at a single-stack 9mm... I personally love the Glock 17L, the original "competition Glock" with a full 6" barrel. It is one of the most accurate Glocks even at longer distances.

Shooting the new Sig Sauer P 938-22

Shooting the new Sig Sauer P 938-22

While at SHOT Show, we had the opportunity to shoot the new Sig Sauer P 938-22 Long Slide "target" variant, which was very enjoyable to shoot. Apart from offering it as a separate product, Sig will be offering the standard length (3.3 inch barrel) upper as well as the long slide "target" (4.1 inch barrel) upper for your existing 9mm P 938. It was a lot of fun, and quite accurate at about 10 yards. Watch our video below:

The $1,000 Dollar 1,000 Yard Rifle

Not long ago we were discussing the Sig SSG 3000 rifle, and although we all love it, many of the comments centered around the high price for this fantastic rifle. Well, our friends over at the Military Arms Channel have posted a couple of YouTube videos of their search for the $1,000 dollar 1,000 yard rifle...enjoy, and let us know what you think!

Federal Court rules in favor of another shall issue case in California

Federal Court rules in favor of another shall issue case in California

The Second Amendment Foundation and The Calguns Foundation earned a significant victory today when the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed and remanded the case of Richards v. Prieto, challenging the handgun carry license issuing policy of Yolo County, California, Sheriff Ed Prieto.

It would appear that legal carry continues to gain ground when one of the most liberal courts in the country admits that the Constitution means what it says it means.

Will the U.S. Supreme Court Entertain These Second Amendment-Related Cases? (Updated)

 Image credit: CBS News

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States will make the decisions whether or not to hear at least three significant cases concerning U.S. citizens' Constitutionally provided rights. If any of the cases are heard, the very hot debate of how the Second Amendment to the Constitution is interpreted by the judicial branch of our government could be considered settled...or could get even hotter.

Update: It has been announced that the Justices have declined to hear any of the below cases.

NRA v. BATFE

This case has been presented and appealed by the National Rifle Association, and contends that where minors are allowed to own handguns they should be allowed to purchase them at age 18. Currently, federal law prohibits the purchase of a handgun by anyone younger than 21. NRA v. BATFE was heard by the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas and the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, both of which upheld the federal restriction.

Drake v. Filko

This lawsuit attempts to reverse a ban on the carrying of handguns outside the home in the state of New Jersey. The U.S. District Court, New Jersey, and the Third Circuit Court of Appeals have both upheld the state's law...but between the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals' bodyslam of Illionois' concealed weapons ban and a more recent ruling by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals that struck down California's "may issue" wording for the San Diego jurisdiction,  Drake v. Filko may have the boost of confidence it needs.

Welling v. BATFE (unconfirmed name)

Amanda Welling moved from Texas to Washington, DC, and found that the only listed Federal Firearms License holder in the District had closed shop. She was therefore unable to legally transfer her handgun - the proper way - to her new home (she could not transport it personally because of the double-stack magazines - it's a Glock).

We'll update this post with the court's decision. Until then, click "Read More" to check out some more cases that may reach the Supreme Court this year.

1st Independent Test of G2 RIP Ammo


1st Independent Test of G2 RIP Ammo

The Truth About Guns has run the first independent testing of the new G2 RIP (Radically Invasive Projectile) ammo that has been generating so much buzz lately as “the last round you’ll ever need.” This ammo seems very interesting, so I thought I’d pass this on, since all we’ve had up to now has been the manufacturer’s own information.

G2 Research’s RIP Ammo – Ballistic Testing, Phase One

I have personally gone through a series of steps in selecting my defensive ammo, taking many things into consideration for my individual circumstances and surroundings, so I am always interested in new technology in this area.  What do you think about it?

Shooting the Sig SSG 3000 Rifle

Shooting the Sig SSG 3000 Rifle

The Sig SSG 3000 is one of Sig’s precision big bore rifles. This one in particular was chambered in .308 with a 24” barrel. Now, I am not a hunter or much of an experienced rifle shooter, but I thought I’d try it out while at Sig Sauer’s media range day at Shot Show.

The rifle is extremely well built, solid, and very stable at about 12 lbs. With just a few seconds of instruction by Sig personnel, I was making head-size hits at 100 yds. The trigger is absolutely smooth and light (3.5 lbs. per Sig specs), and the stock design permits a stable and comfortable hold. I’m not sure of the type of scope installed on this one, but it was perfectly zeroed and allowed me to make shots that I would not normally expect to make.

New Benelli Ethos Shotgun

New Benelli Ethos

As some of you may know, I am a huge fan of shotguns and the shotgun sports. One of my most prized firearms is from the Ethos' predecessor series, the Benelli Performance Shop SuperSport; which is the Benelli SuperSport with the Briley performance upgrades (ported barrel, Briley extended chokes, lengthened forcing cone, back-bored to .733, Briley EZ-bolt release and enlarged bolt handle, polished action, tuned trigger). It is an amazing shotgun, and it works like a charm!

Glock 41 First Impressions

Glock 41 First Impressions

I must admit up front that I am very partial to large frame, long slide pistols. At the end of the day, apart from considerations related to concealed carry, large frame long slide pistols are the easiest to shoot and master, they are more accurate than small ones, and they squeeze more power from any caliber in terms of velocity and force.

The Glock 41 is no exception. It is a full size Glock 21 frame, with a long slide (8.9”) and barrel (5.31”). This is the .45 version of the very successful Glock 34 in 9mm. What are the advantages? A longer, heavier slide which allows for a longer line of sight as well as greater recoil control. The long-slide Glocks in 9mm (model 34) and .40 (model 35) have been extremely successful in competition (IPSC and USPSA, respectively) because of this feature. I own and love an even older version of the long slide Glock, the 17L in 9mm, which has a full 6” barrel, and is extremely accurate and fast at far longer distances than I can accurately shoot with my mid-size Glock 19.
