Diamondback’s New & Improved DB9 Gen 4 – Video Review

Diaomondback DB9 Gen 4 by GBGuns U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- When the DB9 from Diamondback Firearms was originally released it was one of, if not them smallest and thinnest 9mm pistols in the world.  The feat of creating a pocket 9mm roughly the size of most pocket .380 ACP pistols however did not go without compromise or criticism.  Instead of appreciating that Diamondback had found a way to make such a gun, consumers complained. Most of the complaints were a simply matter of not understanding th...

Why You Need a Gun

From Facebook:A couple years ago I was working security at a bar in northern Virginia. I overheard a table of college kids arguing about gun rights and gun control and it was getting far too emotional so I did what any sane combat veteran would do and attempted to exfiltrate. I must not have withdrawn as surreptitiously as I intended, because I was stopped in my tracks when a 5-foot-nothing brunette seemingly leapt in front of me and blurted out "excuse me, can you help us?"I'm sure I must have ...

How boring was life in the British Empire?

Boredom is a pervasive problem. Teenagers suffer from it. Workers are afflicted by it. Psychologists research it. Academic conferences are devoted to it. There is even evidence that you can die of it. And while there are those who claim that boredom can foster creativity, many people would rather give themselves an electric shock than be bored.The word itself was not used until the mid-nineteenth century (in Charles Dickens’ Bleak House). The feeling, however, saw increased expression beginning ...

Diamondback Firearms AM2 Compact Pistol – Video Review

@Maddy_AR of GBGuns with Diamondback AM2. Photo by Graham Baates U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Diamondback Firearms withdrew the FS9 full-sized gun a couple of years ago to the dismay of its fans.  Although the FS9 offered a 4.75″ barrel and incredible ergonomics it just wasn't warmly received at a time when single-stack carry guns were all the rage.  We were told something was coming to replace it, but neither what nor when. The American-made AM2 hits the sweet spot with a 3.5″ barrel and 12+1 or...

FK Brno PSD U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- One of the advantages of having a network of industry people is that I sometimes hear about things before they are officially announced.

The Case For The 20″-Barreled AR-15

American Rifleman: First, let’s look at the ballistics. The M16’s 20″ barrel has a 200-f.p.s. advantage over the 14.5″-barreled M4 when shooting M855 ammunition. In my testing, using Federal’s XM855 ammunition, a 20″ barrel recorded about a 150-f.p.s. advantage compared with a 16″ barrel, the common length for civilian carbines. For the carbine, that means about a 5 percent loss in velocity. The muzzle energy difference is about 125 ft.-lbs. or 10 percent. For reliability and durability data we ...

Army Squad Weapons From Early-Vietnam

Via reddit, I found this interesting. I simply cannot see that fully automatic M14 being controllable by anyone, and by any stretch of the imagination.  And why would you have a fully automatic M14 that is magazine-fed, only to interrupt fire to change magazines?  To me, an M249 SAW (fed with drums) is a much better weapon for the purpose. On the other hand, if all you have is the M14 series of guns, having one capable of selective fire isn’t a bad idea.  It’s just inferior to the SAW.
