anguish and anxiety because 1300 people died today

The Ordeal After The Ordeal

Smart people plan.

Do you know what you would do if you were forced to defend yourself? Especially if you’re going to carry a gun, having a self defense plan is worth some serious thought.

What we rarely ever expect, though, is the second attack – the part that comes after the emergency is over – because it generally comes from a totally unexpected source.

If you’re confused, that’s okay. Here’s a real life example:

Several years ago, our family was victimized.

You Can’t Measure That

The internet is full of shady statistics.

Even accurate statistics are used to tell half truths or lead you to false conclusions. You already know this, of course. Nobody needs to remind you that numbers are easy to manipulate.

For example, that stat that’s been floating around claiming that there have been more “mass shootings” than days of this year might be technically factual, if you’re willing to include in that figure all incidents of gang violence, defensive firearm uses, inner city scuffles that resulted in minor injuries at best, and events that were alluded to in news outlets but may not have actually occurred.

5 Ways To Make Activism Work

The Modern Activist

For most people today, political activism amounts to little more than expressing their opinion publicly.

Debate and discussion are certainly  part of the core of this nation’s political system, and we have the utmost respect for anyone willing to speak up and let their voice be heard on a larger scale. It takes courage to express your beliefs and let people challenge you, and maturity to listen to opposing viewpoints and weigh in with reason and thought.

Activism, though, requires a little bit more.

5 Ways The Media Manufactures Racial Tension

News channels are so good at marketing that most people still believe that “news” is synonymous with “information” – but if you’ve ever been involved in any kind of big news story, you know first hand that they lie.

The fact is this:

News is just another form of entertainment.

Our Pick for the Perfect Concealed Carry Gun

When it comes time to choose the best concealed carry handgun, most people decide based on the wrong criteria.

Consider this:

Obviously, you’re looking for something small enough that you can carry it comfortably in its holster, so concealability is important.

A World Without Guns

Every time there’s a call for more gun control, or for outright firearm banishment, it’s based on the idea that if there are less guns in circulation, there will be less violence. Proponents of this plan frequently imagine a world with no guns as a safe place where humans have evolved past the need for mindless violence, where nobody has to lock their doors or worry about much more than the most minor of offenses.

Preparedness and Survival Aren’t Fads

If you’re an average American, you probably think that preppers – people who stockpile food and supplies in case of disaster – are a little bit insane. After all, normal, healthy people don’t get reality shows, right? In our culture, “prepper” has become synonymous with “conspiracy theorist,” which, according to the mainstream media, is another word for a tinfoil-hat-wearing lunatic. Meanwhile, there’s a hurricane bearing down on the East Coast, wildfires have run rampant through California, and flooding has been wreaking havoc in Texas…is it really so crazy to be prepared for stuff like that?

Can You Really Get a Rifle Without A Background Check?

Perhaps you’ve heard that there might be a way you can legally obtain a gun with NO serial numbers, NO FFL’s, and NO paperwork…and that’s absolutely correct. You CAN do all of those things without breaking any laws – but you have to do the gunsmith’s portion yourself. For the sake of our customers, we thought we’d try to clear a few things up.

Why Is Everyone Talking About The Springfield XD Line?

THE Polymer Pistol

If I say “polymer pistol platform” you probably think “Glock” (after you congratulate me on my awesome alliteration). There’s another player on the polymer scene, though, and it’s even converted some die-hard Glock fans to the Springfield side.

largealtimage5-xd-mod-2Allow me to introduce you to your new favorite line of pistols: Springfield Armory’s XD line is an outstanding platform, with out-of-the-box performance that is hard to rival. XDs of all shapes and sizes are known for their incredible ergonomics, which is easier to explain than it is to spell. Users and reviewers from around the country often describe the shooting experience as feeling like an extension of the arm – XD grips are shaped and angled perfectly to make handling and aiming natural, intuitive, and accurate. Drawing and firing an XD, XDm, or XDs feels completely natural…and don’t tell your Glock obsessed buddy, but in general, XD pistols are better at managing recoil than comparable Glocks.
