Bloomberg ‘Reporter’s’ Affinity for Citizen Disarmament Seems Personal

Unfortunately, the “bright spots” in the darkness that counted most were only coming from one source, and the most effective means of saving others was denied by the very edicts The Trace and its Bloomberg-“seeded” propagandists demand.

Toy Design History: How They Came Up with the Magic 8 Ball

It's a pretty weird toy, if you think about it: An ink-filled, oversized billiards ball that predicts the future when you shake it. But as with a lot of successful product designs--and make no mistake, the Magic 8 Ball is successful, with over one million units still sold each year--it went through several iterations before its current form was realized.In the 1940s a woman named Mary Carter was earning a living as a clairvoyant in Cincinnati. She came up with an object that she'd use with her c...

Army gun compatibility

I’ve accepted it as inevitable that I will end up with a SIG Sauer P320-M17. Or just a Sig P320 in general. Because the military is going to start using them. Similar to the AR, this should mean a lot of after market support. And I like the notion of having a gun that the military issues for parts and ammo availability. And Sig has just released an airgun version of it. Oddly, I never felt this way about the Beretta 92.

One that I wish to draw here is what the Versailles Treaty can tea...
