I'm gonna say something controversial, as I often do, but I really think it's an important point to consider ...

How many times have you used a phrase like "a gun isn't a weapon, it's a tool" or "guns don't kill people" or something along those lines when discussing weapons, particularly with an anti gunner? Have you ever stopped to think what a load of B.S. that is? I think we should be honest with ourselves. Guns are WEAPONS. Yes they may technically be a tool, but their purpose is to kill. While it's true people kill people, not guns, people use guns to kill people.

If someone breaks into my house, my 12 gauge is loaded with 00 buck to kill. I carry a pistol so that if some scumbag tries to harm me or my family, they will get killed.

I never want to have to do that, and I don't want to glorify killing, nor do I want to villify weapons. My point is, we need to be able to accept harsh realities when it comes to the weapons we carry. If you can't accept the fact that your firearm is a tool designed to kill, then I don't think you are ready to have/carry it.

Y'all understand that a thing's designed purpose doesn't need to be its name, right?

Should we call a katana a "curved-edge slicer"? It's a sword.

Anybody pocket carry? And if so, how often do you have to clean lint and debris from your weapon? This is after about three days. The second picture is a piece of straw.

Granted, I've taken my weapon like this and fired it straight from the holster without cleaning it, and have never had a hicccup. But it still bothers me to see it all dirty.

Uncle Mike makes a nice pocket holster. I carry always and only get a little bit.

Need help deciding which should be my next rifle. It's gonna be a truck gun, so I need something durable, and versatile, kind of a jack of all trades rifle. Also, I wasn't something with a manual action. 3rd, I'm left handed, so lever actions get plus points.

You know that we're winning the right when HuffPost is having a cow. :)

The Texas state Senate gave preliminary approval Monday to legislation that would allow licensed handgun owners to visibly bear their firearms, in a move that would repeal a 140-year-old open carry ban. The Republican-controlled chamber approved ...

Ask a Gunnie  - 
 
A few weeks back, I wrote a post about "putting too much tacticrap on a rifle." Now, for the most part, that was tongue in cheek. In reality, I love the options that gun owners have available these days that really weren't available when dad and granddad were around. I love semi-autos, and I love the higher capacities that most rifles have these days. What I HATE,  is pistol grips. 

I love that pistol grips are available for people who like them, and I'm not a "fudd." I just hate shooting guns that have pistol grips. They feel awkward to me, and I just can't get the hang of them. Unfortunately, there really aren't any rifles available with the capabilities of an AR, without a pistol grip. Except perhaps a mini-14 or an M1A, and a few rifles designed to comply with the NY safe act, my options are pretty well limited to traditional hunting rifles.

I really wan't to get more into modern rifles. What can I do to overcome this dilemma? What is out there for me? Or should I just embrace the pistol grip? What I really want is something with the platform and capabilities of an AR15, where I can find parts and accessories and magazines anywhere in the country, yet the feel of a Remington 700. What should I do.

Yours truly: Semi-grip guy in a pistol grip world ;)

lmfao! If the G26 doesn't work for someone then they need to go away from glock, it's that simple. On the upside I bet I could use the trigger assembly from the 43 on my 26 and maybe the barrel and recoil spring.

+Malik Kirkland .... on top of that gun smuggling has also reach a epidemic levels in Australia too. This is what they get when the government no longer fears its *Commonwealth subjects when they take away their guns folks. 
*(Australia belongs to the Commonwealth of England, another country that banned most of their firearms)

I had no idea this thing existed!! They have one called a "rail" too, made for your AR.

If you could design the perfect multi tool for your hoplophilia what would you build?

Disclaimer: this is all in good fun, nobody get offended

Pet peeve: Putting too much tacticrap on a rifle.

Look, I get it, AR15's look cool. And who doesn't love "accessorizing" But really? Red dots and bipods and lasers and vertical foregrips and lights and scopes mounted on the side so you can shoot sideways and can openers and cup holders...just stop it.

Grandad could hit a pop can at 150 yards with a .30-30 and iron sights, but I see a lot of people struggling to hit 12" plates at 50 yards with an AR and 30 pounds of junk strapped on it.

I'm sure I'll offend a lot of people, but my opinion still stands. Learn to shoot WITHOUT all the go-go-gadget gear bolted onto your gun. Practice makes you a better shot, not accessories. 

mic-drop ;)

I personally like my rifle slim and stripped down to save weight.  As Robert said, at the end of the hunt, I can do without the extra gadgets.  On the other hand, one of my good hunting buddies runs a scope and red dot combo on his rig and does just fine but he is more man than I.  lol

Soapbox:

Every time some one says to me, "For self/home defense, (22lr/380/9mm/12 gauge bird shot/insert any bullet size here) isn't adequate. All you'll do is piss em off," I snarkily reply, "OK, then let me shoot you in the chest with one."

And ya know, they always say no. Amazing, isn't it.

Just put a tank in your yard with a few scarecrows hanging from trees. Also, have "attempted robber #1" and "attempted robber #2" grave stones in front yard. You wont have to worry.

Dear Australian gun communities: I know the US might get a bad rap, but I promise, we'll let you carry pistols without them being tied to the wall. Come on over. We'd love to have you stay a while.

Got that great hometown feel you would expect from an old-style general store. Propane prices are one of the cheapest around, too.

Went there to use the car wash and vacuum out my car. When the vacuum took my quarters without turning on, I went inside to use the ATM and get some more. The lady behind the counter refunded my quarters without me even having to ask. Great gas station, and they have my business now, even if there are cheaper places around.

Got my jeep washed there. Didn't have enough money to do the full detail, so I can't comment on that. But the wash was great, fast, and thorough.
