Senator Ted Cruz: TTAG Gun Hero of the Day

Mon, 02/19/2018 - 18:18

Texas Senator Ted Cruz is not the most photogenic politician. But he could well be the most conservative. An adjective that certainly applies to his support for the Second Amendment. For standing up to Hollywood hypocrisy, for giving us a rallying cry while the NRA maintains its radio silence, Senator Cruz is our Gun Hero […]

TTAG Daily Digest: Full Force Anti-Firearms Freedom Firehose

Mon, 02/19/2018 - 17:00

Today’s Daily Digest is an embarrassment of riches — if you like to read about American citizens working to degrade and destroy your natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms.

New from Phoenix Weaponry: Integrally Suppressed 338-06 Rifle

Mon, 02/19/2018 - 15:00

I’ve got a integrally suppressed rifle wielding monkey on my back. If I wasn’t rushing around like a blue arsed fly (British expression), I’d have one by now. Because a rifle is not a porn penis; at some point too long is too long. An integrally suppressed rifle keeps both the noise and the muzzle […]

Presidents’ Day Sale: Primary Arms ACSS-Equipped Trijicon TA44 ACOGs

Mon, 02/19/2018 - 13:00

My 2017 Christmas present? A Trijicon ACOG…but not just any ACOG. I’ve been a big fan of Primary Arms’ ACSS reticle for many years, as it combines extremely fast, intuitive target ranging with clear ballistic drop holdovers, and it was high time to get it in a high-end optic. The ACSS ACOGs are only available […]

Tyson’s everydaycarry.com pocket dump contains not one, not two, but three folding weapons: a North American Arms pocket-clipped (not magazined) .22, a Benchmade 558 Doug Ritter Mini-Griptilian with AWT scales and a Shomer-Tec SHNK Covert Nickel Knife.

ThePatriotNurse ain’t got time for “a discussion about guns” with gun control advocates (or whatever they’re calling themselves today). “They’re like the worst girlfriend ever,” she opines. “Like she doesn’t give you anything, she only takes, takes, takes; and at the end of the day you look around and go whoa!

Gun Review: Kimber Micro 9 Raptor 9mm

Mon, 02/19/2018 - 08:00

My first everyday carry pistol was a Colt Government .380. By the time I was old enough to carry it, I’d forgotten where it came from. So I took it apart and discovered it was a modified U.S. Government-issued firearm. That made it a collector’s piece, which turned out to be a blessing. Because collector […]

Congressional Rep Trey Gowdy: Ban Bump Fire Stocks! [VIDEO]

Mon, 02/19/2018 - 07:00

“Bump stocks turn semiautomatic weapons into fully automatic weapons,” South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy pronounced on CBS Face the Nation [below]. “Fully automatic weapons are already illegal, so I am fine with doing away with any instrumentality that converts a semiautomatic to a fully automatic.” Wait.

NRA is Pro-Life, Planned Parenthood is Pro-Death: Quote of the Day

Mon, 02/19/2018 - 06:00

“It is a contradiction in political philosophy to promote Planned Parenthood while accusing gun rights advocates of being against life. Planned Parenthood is America’s abortion giant, and is responsible for tens of thousands of deaths every single year. The NRA, by contrast, does not advocate gun violence or promote a culture of death. In fact, […]

New from Tech Smith MFG: B&T Tailhook Brace Adapter

Sun, 02/18/2018 - 14:00

I really enjoy shooting my B&T TP9, which I reviewed here. I haven’t registered it as an SBR yet. I’m just not convinced it’s going to stay in my permanent collection. The main reason: its proprietary suppressor is just too expensive to use on only one weapon. Sure it’s a great suppressor, but if I’m going […]
