Remington Lawsuit – The Sky Is Not Falling

On March 14th of this year, the Connecticut Supreme Court narrowly held that Remington Arms Company could be sued by the families of the victims of the Sandy Hook tragedy.

Chinese LEOs Doing Bullpup Speed Reloads

Yes, that’s a photo of my own Surefire FA556AR silencer and the serial number is P01239. No, I’m not particularly concerned about posting it.

This Reader’s Gun is a Crime Against Humanity and Represents Everything That’s Wrong in the World

There’s a lot you can tell about a person by their firearm choices. For example, if a guy carries an Interarms import Walther PPK or an H&K P7, he’s probably a well-heeled shooter and maybe a little of a Bond or Hans Gruber fan. If he carries a revolver, he’s likely an older gent who […] Read More … The post This Reader’s Gun is a Crime Against Humanity and Represents Everything That’s Wrong in the World appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

TFB REVIEW: KNS SwitchSight Glock Sights

You just bought a Glock, and let’s face it, those plastic factory Glock sights are flat out embarrassing.
