Which Holster Is Right For You?

Whether you’ve never carried a gun before, or you’re just looking for a rig for your latest firearm purchase, it’s worthwhile to take a closer look at the different types of holsters you can choose from.

Of course you know that you should never ever ever carry a pistol without a holster, but did you know that your style of carry can (and should) change with weather conditions, situations, and your clothing styles? Most educated firearm owners who carry regularly have multiple holsters for each gun.

Your Chance To Build Your Own Custom Rifle Has Come

Maybe you’ve never built your own custom rifle, but if you act quickly, you might just have a chance to change that.

A few months ago, Gadsden Guns held a rifle build class that was so popular, half of the seats were reserved before the announcement was even made to the public.

Well, that happened again.

It’s For Your Own Good

The government may be money hungry, corrupt, and inept, but as a whole, the law is essentially there to protect the general public…right?

And, out of the three branches of government, it’s the judicial system that has your interests most in mind, isn’t it? The Supreme Court isn’t nearly as corrupt as Congress or the office of the President.

After all, that’s what checks and balances are all about. If the Executive and Legislative branches are full of crooks, the Judicial keeps things from getting too far out of hand.

But what if your safety and wellbeing weren’t being protected by the Supreme Court, either?

Grassroots Feature: Meet S.C.O.P.E.

Remember when you felt like you could make a difference in the world?

As we get older, the pure idealism of our youth gradually fades, leaving so many people cynical, quietly resigned to their fate. Millions of Americans feel powerless as they watch their freedoms gradually erode. It’s as if our future is in somebody else’s hands, and no matter how loudly we yell, nobody in power seems to hear us.

The truth is this:

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.

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.

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.

Where Do Criminals Get Their Guns?

We Got Curious

After listening to both sides of the gun control debate for a while, we grew curious. We wanted to know – where DO criminals get their guns?

It’s dangerously easy to depend on our Facebook news feed, daily evening news, and a few favorite websites as our sole sources of information – in short, there’s so much information that crosses our paths naturally every day that it takes some serious effort to actually go looking for MORE…and if you do decide to look, there are heaps of worthless junk to sift through before you find something of value. This blog, suspecting that we didn’t know the whole story about guns used in crimes, did just that, and what we found out was at once surprising and illuminating.
