Why Ballistics Gel Works And Caliber Arguments Are Dumb

Via BRVTVS, this is an interesting video. I have to say that I do have one problem with it.  Mr. Johann Boden speaks as if the only important factor in the high velocity from rifle ammunition (and here he’s speaking of the 5.56mm AR, which is an important distinction in the conversation) is the hydrostatic shock from velocities greater than 2200 FPS. That simply isn’t so.  We’ve learned over the years that the tendency to tumble and yaw (even in flight, but especially in tissue) and break apa...

Wyoming: End of 2019 Session Report from Cheyenne ~ VIDEO

Opinion Wyoming – -(AmmoLand.com)- With the 2019 legislative session in the books, gun owners are furious, as our legislation to repeal ‘Gun Free Zones’ in government buildings was killed by legislative leaders.

But we also had some ferocious champions for freedom stand up and fight for gun owners, and they need to be recognized...

Aura H2O2 Signing out of Kobo reset everything??

I signed out of my reader to try and sign in to another account I realized I had. When I signed out, I assumed it would take me to a "sign in again" screen, bu instead it prompted me to set up my ereader again. There was no way to sign in without doing this. Since I sideload all my books, it erased every custom setting because it had to set up again - collections, read/unread, current read. My books were all there, but none of the settings. Why is signing out resetting everything? I would n...

SCI President Babaz Responds To Anti-Hunting, Anti-Science Bill Intro’d by House Dems

Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) Washington, DC – -(AmmoLand.com)- Safari Club International President Paul Babaz today issued a statement that points out the lunacy of a bill that has been introduced into the U.S. House of Representatives that, if passed into law, would harm the very wildlife it purports to want to help – all in the name of vilifying hunters and hunting. President Babaz' statement notes: “As expected, Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) has reintroduced an unserious wildlife bill designed to...

What are the Severe New Zealand Gun Restrictions?

While some New Zealanders are turning in guns to police, others are rushing to gun shops to buy semi-auto rifles in anticipation of new gun control laws.

Saved Searches Lost

I just recently upgraded to Calibre 3.39.1 and lost all my saved searches, which, unfortunately, I hadn't backed up in over a year. I am, however, diligent about backing up the whole database, so I thought I could swap out the db file and metadata_db_prefs_backup.json from the back up, open the saved searches and export it. Then I would copy the current db file back and reimport the saved searches json file. But there were no saved searches when I opened the editor. So, my question is, where ar...
