QC10 PCC U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- If you're a big fan of AR platform Pistol Caliber Carbines (PCC's), you've likely heard of Quarter Circle 10 before.  If you're like me and have less experience with these diminutive lead-spitters, QC10 might be a bit of a new name in your mental Rolodex.  To put it simply, QC10's intent is to position themselves as the one PCC-well you'll ever need to draw water from.

Defeating A Real Nuclear Threat

Opinion Defeating A Real Nuclear Threat USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- In 2014, during the Syrian civil war, ISIS occupied a site in the Syrian desert which once held a nuclear weapons facility. It reportedly had been built for the Syrians with North Korean help. If that reactor had been there, ISIS might have had a capability to inflict terrifyingly massive casualties. However, seven years earlier, in September 2007, Israel launched a secret air attack against this obscure site in the Syrian desert...

Who Wants This War with Iran?

Who Wants This War with Iran? U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Speaking on state TV of the prospect of a war in the Gulf, Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei seemed to dismiss the idea. “There won't be any war. … We don't seek a war, and (the Americans) don't either. They know it's not in their interests.” The ayatollah's analysis — war is in neither nation's interest — is correct. Consider the consequences of a war with the United States for his own country. Iran's hundreds of swift boats and h...

With Friends Like These

Art by Michael Ramirez USA –-(Ammoland.com)- With Friends Like These. At a meeting with Hilter on November 28th, in 1941 Al-Husseini began the conversation by declaring that the Germans and the Arabs had the same enemies: “the English, the Jews, and the Communists.” He proposed an Arab revolt all across the Middle East to fight the Jews; the English, who still ruled Palestine and controlled Iraq and Egypt; and even the French, who controlled Syria and Lebanon.

How to Build an Ultralight AR-15

Ultralight AR-15 U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- The AR-15 has the widest variety of possible configurations of any rifle out there.  From unwieldy “longbow” builds to ultra-short “Han Solo” style single shots, AR builders have long been pushing the platform to extremes.  One direction many have gone is the Ultralight AR-15 route:  there's a 100 page (and counting) thread on AR15.com where some builders have trimmed their rifles down to 2.5 pounds by dropping every ounce possible and counting each g...

Are All the World's Problems Ours? U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- In 2003, George W. Bush took us to war to liberate Iraq from the despotism of Saddam Hussein and convert that nation into a beacon of freedom and prosperity in the Middle East. Tuesday, Mike Pompeo flew clandestinely into Baghdad, met with the prime minister and flew out in four hours. The visit was kept secret, to prevent an attack on the Americans or the secretary of state. Query: How successful was Operation Iraqi Freedom, which c...

Ukrainian FORT-19 Pistols Smuggled to Iraq as Bicycles

About a month ago, Iraqi police seized over one thousand Ukrainian Fort-19 pistols that were smuggled into the country.

Quote of the Day: Larry Corriea Edition

From his Monster Nation post The 2nd Amendment is Obsolete, Says Congressman Who Wants To Nuke Omaha: In something that I find profoundly troubling when I’ve had this discussion before, I’ve had a Caring Liberal tell me that the example of Iraq doesn’t apply because “we kept the gloves on”, whereas fighting America’s gun nuts would be a righteous total war with nothing held back… Holy shit, I’ve got to wonder about the mentality of people who demand rigorous ROEs to prevent civilian casualties i...

Novagrade Double Gripper – Phone to Scope Adaptor

Novagrade Double Gripper digiscope adapter U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)-I ran into the Novagrade booth during Triggrcon, 2018.  Novagrade's owner, Doug Porter was standing behind a couple spotting scopes from different manufacturers.  I looked around, slightly confused as to which product was his.  He pulled a Novagrade Double Gripper digiscope adapter out from behind his back and asked to borrow my phone.  Within a few seconds, he had dropped my phone into the Double Gripper, attached it to the n...

U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Last week, it was Venezuela in America's gun sights. “While a peaceful solution is desirable, military action is possible,” thundered Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. “If that's what is required, that's what the United States will do.” John Bolton tutored Vladimir Putin on the meaning of the Monroe Doctrine: “This is our hemisphere.

CMMG Endeavor 300 Series in 6.5 Creedmoor U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- CMMG has been churning out some great guns for 17 years now.  The Boonville, MO based manufacturer has gained fairly widespread namebrand recognition on the backs of such guns as the Mk47 “Mutant” and the Anvil, as well as accessories like the Ripstock.  Recently CMMG re-branded their firearms line-ups as the old nomenclature scheme got a bit unwieldy.  Now all of CMMG's guns are divided into three categories.  As per CMMG, “T...

Celluloid Swords Into Archaeological Plowshares

Declassified hi-res photo negatives from Lockheed U-2 spy plane flights from the '50s and '60s are helping map out early civilization..."Interesting archaeological features captured in the images included a canal irrigation system in Northern Iraq and prehistoric stone-wall hunting traps called desert kites, which were used to trap animals like gazelle over 5,000 years ago. The kites were preserved for a very long time because of the dry desert environment, but as modern agriculture expanded int...

Where Trump’s and Bibi’s Interests Clash

What Bibi wants, Bibi gets. U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- On Monday, President Donald Trump designated the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps a terrorist organization, the first time the United States has designated part of another nation's government as such a threat. Iran's Supreme National Security Council responded by declaring U.S. Central Command a terrorist group. With 5,000 U.S. troops in Iraq and 2,000 in Syria, often in proximity to Iranian units, this inches America closer to war. Why di...

How Tony Blair’s special advisers changed government

Tony Blair is one of the great conundrums of our time. We all know his legacy, from the widely-condemned invasion of Iraq to bequeathing a great National Health Service to the United Kingdom. But how he governed, how decisions were made, is still hotly debated. Was he radical, was he “unconstitutional”?Public service reform, from foundation hospitals to academy schools, under Blair was vast, all with the backing of massive financial investment and spending. But his reform of the Civil Service wa...

Is The AR-15 A ‘Weapon Of War?”

Joe Scarorough: As a longtime gun owner and supporter of the Second Amendment, I agreed with the Supreme Court’s “Heller” holding that concluded Americans had the right to keep and bear arms. But that constitutional protection did not, and will not, extend to guns designed as weapons of war. One should expect such things from a mindless dolt like Scarborough, but we should be able to expect better from people who should know better.  Apparently, it has become all the rage to throw around a few g...

The future of borders in the Middle East

The collapse of Arab regional order during the 2011 uprisings provided a chance to reconsider the Middle East’s famously misshapen states. Most rebels sought to control the central government, not to break away from it. Separatist, in contrast, unilaterally sought territorial autonomy or outright secession. They took advantage of the breakdown of security services to set up their own peripheral enclaves. In the last eight years, separatists have served as foot soldiers in the coalition that defe...

History of Landscapes Starts with Stonehenge. Really.

As threatened  promised, I’m blogging the History of Landscape course I’m taking at the University of Maryland, and here’s my first post. The (fabulous) teacher I’ll be quoting is Caren Yglesias. Interestingly to me, when I tell people I’m taking a class in landscape history I get questions like – does it start with Olmsted? English gardens? I love answering that it actually starts with Stonehenge because of the look of bewilderment on their faces. So what IS a landscape, anyway? Wikipedia say...

In a Time of Monsters: Travels Through a Middle East in Revolt by Emma Sky – review

The former political adviser dines with sheikhs and stays with ambassadors to grasp how a generation let down the Middle EastWhen the Arab spring spread across the Middle East eight years ago, many observers were filled with optimism. Years of sclerotic dictatorship were over, repressive regimes would fall, a wave of progressive politics would sweep across the region. But this was always unlikely, as the more astute commentators made clear at the time. Many of the authoritarian states remained s...
