Safe or Not to Safe? Which Mechanical Gun Safety is Right for Concealed Carry?

Opinon A 1911 like this new Springfield Armory Range Officer Elite 10mm has a “classic” thumb safety. USA –-( I wonder if everyone who carries a concealed pistol goes through the same mental evolution? When I started to carry, I had a subconscious fear that my gun would go off inadvertently while carrying. While I thought about carrying with an empty chamber, I never went quite that far as I recognized that chambering a round in the heat of a self-defense encounter was not a re...

Meet the Contenders...

So the auditions for the polymer-frame DA/SA carry gun project have started.When DA/SA guns meant "frames machined from aluminum forgings" and striker guns meant "the well-amortized Gen3 Glock design" there were huge differences in cost and weight that weighed on the pistol-buying decision.However a trip to Gunbroker today shows that whether your choice of pistol is a Gen4/5 Glock, a Smith & Wesson M&P9 2.0, or one of the polymer traditional double-action pistols below, the street price is going...

People For The American Way Want To Ban Rapid-Fire Ammunition

Yes, sadly, it’s true. Nevertheless, PFAW describes a ban on magazine capacity as a ban on “rapid-fire ammunition.” They do not explain what “rapid-fire ammunition” is–whether it is ammunition for a Glock 9mm, a Smith & Wesson .380, or a Rock Island Armory 10mm. The only clue they give is their emphasis on “assault weapons,” a moniker the left uses to describe semiautomatic rifles. I’m wondering if this means we won’t have access to that shoulder thing that goes up either? Prior: The Captain’s ...

TFB Review: Smith & Wesson Performance Center Pro Series, Model 686 Plus

Horace Smith and Daniel Wesson became partners in 1852 with the goal of manufacturing a firearm that would fire a self-contained cartridge. The “Volcanic Pistol” was the result.

The Virtues Of Being A Small Firearms Manufacturer

Reuters: A decade ago, Kentucky’s Anderson Manufacturing was a small machine shop that didn’t make firearms. By 2016, it was making more rifles than Smith & Wesson, according to the latest available data from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). Anderson’s big seller: assault-style rifles that cost up to $2,100 and require no lubrication. Anderson says it made nearly 454,000 rifles that year, or about 57,000 more than Smith & Wesson. Anderson is the leader among a ...

Episcopal Church Takes A Stand On Gun Manufacturers

It just isn’t the right one. Shareholder advocacy is nothing new for the Episcopal Church.

What’s new is one of the investment tactics the church plans to implement in the new year to address gun violence. General Convention passed a resolution in July that calls o...

Google denies claims that it didn’t alert contractors about the active shooter at YouTube — but at least one temp says it’s a ‘big fat lie’ (GOOGL, GOOG)

In an open letter addressed to Google CEO Sundar Pichai on Wednesday, contract workers at Google — known internally as TVCs — demanded equal pay and equal opportunity to that of their full-time counterparts.  Within the letter, TVCs highlighted the inequity of information sharing for contract workers, including one incident that could have ended fatally: "When the tragic shooting occurred at YouTube in April of this year, the company sent real-time security updates to full-time employees only,...
