Getting in the Fight for Cultural Engagement

Getting in the Fight for Cultural Engagement U.S.A. –(AmmoLand.com)- When we discuss the social stigmatization of the Second Amendment, not to mention efforts at corporate gun control, one thing makes those things easier: The fact that those who seek to take away our Second Amendment rights have allies who have a lot of sway in our pop culture.The NRA is largely off the pop culture battlefield, and that is a mistake. In some ways, it is a tough hill to climb. Hollywood is one place where suppo...

Forgotten Memo Shows Gun-grabbing Built into FBI’s DNA

Hoover (R) and assistant/companion Clyde Tolson (Los Angeles Daily News – PD) U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms should be a convenience store” is an old meme gun owners use to express the more serious concern that Constitutional authority to infringe on the right to keep and bear arms is non-existent. “Boot the BATFE!” was a campaign the late Aaron Zelman of Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership started to argue that point, and to call for the elimination of th...

Echo Dot 3 improves hearing audiobooks

I have some hearing loss - to the point that I finally had to shell out for a hearing aid. I received the Echo Dot 3 a couple of days ago and it's quite improved over Dot 1 and somewhat improved over Dot 2. It has enough bass in it that I can take the hearing aid out to listen. Not as good as the Echo 2, but far more portable and certainly less expensive. You can listen to both audiobooks that you have at Audible as well as a plugged in ipod or Mp3 player (bluetooth as well). Apparently, pu...

Ruger Single Six Revolver – Still One of the Best Handguns to Own

Ruger Single Six Revolver – Still One of the Best Handguns to Own U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- The Ruger Single Six hearkens back to the popularity of TV Westerns that came with the dawn of television in the households of ordinary Americans in the 1950s. Back then, Ruger was a newcomer to the game–not the giant it is today. Colt stopped producing their legendary Single Action Army Revolver so they could focus on production for World War II contracts. By the time Colt got around to starting product...

eReader to sync with android phone

I've been reading off an android phone for years and finally want to make the jump to a proper eReader. I have a mix of epub and amazon books and ideally I'd like to sync both between the eReader and my phone. Is this possible natively on any device or would I need to jailbreak, mess around with Calibre? Many thanks!

Did The US Army Use Silencers During World War One?

In the early 1900s Hiram Percy Maxim, son of the inventor of the Maxim gun, began developing early suppressors which he christened ‘silencers’. It wasn’t long before the US Army took interest in these new silencers and began testing them. The US Army tested the silencers extensively between 1909 and 1916. In 1910, Colonel S.E. Blunt, Springfield […] Read More … The post Did The US Army Use Silencers During World War One? appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Hardware Waveform file decoding: how much do we know?

Background: I'm a EE with embedded-systems experience, playing with E-ink. I'd like to use one of the newer EPD panels (E-ink Carta, preferably) in a project, without Linux, using a microcontroller and maybe an FPGA. I'm familiar with some of the previous published work along these lines (mainly http://essentialscrap.com/eink/). It's clear from the earlier work that you can conjure up your own waveforms for simple black-and-white experiments without too much hassle. Grayscale and partial up...

Go forth and be clueful: Whats the Maximum Effective Range of Buckshot?

Shootability

Has nothing to do with how the gun feels in your hand. The gun I shoot most accurately (Ruger Match Champion) is not the one that feels best in my hand (Para LDA 45) by any means. And I don’t carry either one of those.

Acknowledging the need for weapons

A university in Michigan is giving students and faculty ice soccer pucks to defend against mass shootings. They are, naturally, a gun free zone. After I stopped laughing, I concluded this is not a completely stupid idea. A well thrown hockey puck upside the grape and its coloring books for Christmas. But there are more effective ways of dealing with active shooters, such as shooting them in the face.

Lying to win

It’s often said by anti-gunners some to the effect of “mass shootings only happen here“. This, of course, is not true: Of the 97 countries where we identified mass public shootings, the U.S. ranks 64th per capita in its rate of attacks and 65th in fatalities. Major European countries, such as Norway, Finland, France, Switzerland and Russia, all have at least 25 percent higher per capita murder rates from mass public shootings.

Natural Looking Faux Greenery

Am I the only person in the world who hasn’t started decorating for Christmas? It feels like it. The only thing I’ve done is hang a plain evergreen wreath on my front door. That’s it. I suppose I should get busy. Yesterday I was out and about looking at some holiday decor, specifically greenery. The lighted fir garland I use for my stairs is looking sad, it’s over 10 years old. Last year I layered it with real cedar garland and eucalyptus and I admit it looked amazing, until 10 days later when t...
