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.

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.

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.

Don’t get trapped – how to legally beat the ATF

A few weeks ago, we discussed the real, honest truth about silencers. If you missed that post, you can see it here. Meanwhile, it’s worth a closer look at the legal intricacies of owning items regulated by the National Firearms Act, often just called NFA items. An innocent mistake with something as simple as the storage of one of these items can result in felony charges and jail time for you and/or family members, so following a few basic guidelines is essential. Luckily, even though the ATF makes these laws complicated and illogical, there is an easy and affordable way to simplify things and protect yourself and your loved ones from falling victim to the dishonest and manipulative practices of these government agencies…through the establishment of a legal trust.

How To Immediately Improve Accuracy Without Firing a Single Shot

Do you actually get to the range as often as you would like? If you’re like most people, your schedule simply doesn’t allow for daily, or even weekly, trips to your favorite shooting rang to hone your skills. Family obligations, work, and all those grownup responsibilities just keep getting in the way, right? And besides that, with the rising cost of ammunition, most sportsmen are finding that they have to cut back a little. Even reloading expenses can add up…there are other advantages to reloading your own rounds, but that’s another blog post.

On top of that, sometimes the weather doesn’t cooperate, or you’re exhausted from a long day at work and don’t feel like packing up your supplies and then cleaning your guns afterwards, or you have to stay home to supervise the kids, or maybe you don’t have a place to shoot locally. Even though we all know that a responsible gun owner practices with his/her firearms on a regular basis, sometimes it just feels like the world is conspiring against us to keep us from getting onto the firing line.

Why would you ever carry a gun?

Do you remember the last time you were in a large crowd of people? Unless you were strolling around in an area that has an outright ban on concealed carry, there’s a good possibility that you walked by more than one person who was carrying a gun, and you didn’t even know it. In fact, for every 20 people you pass (on average) in the United States, one of them is legally carrying a gun,** and the number of carry permits being issued is on the rise.

This brings to mind a question that most permit holders have been asked at some point: Why do you even want to carry a gun?

Stand up for your rights…quietly

Fear-based legislation is out of control. It’s not just a matter of trading a little freedom for a semblance of security. That’s an illusion…but you already know that gun control is about the control, not about the guns. All you have to do to prove it is look at the current laws on suppressors (silencers), laws that have no logical basis or grounding in fact. There’s so much superstition and confusion on the topic that most people think it’s outright illegal to have a silencer at all.

In actuality, it’s not illegal to own and use suppressors – and in fact they make your gun SAFER…but thanks to the National Firearms Act (NFA) of 1934, they are heavily regulated by people whose knowledge of the wide world of firearms is limited to Hollywood drama, skewed statistics, and shoddy late-night news reporting.

Show What You Stand For with NEW Exclusive Tee-Shirts!

Proudly declare that you stand FOR individual rights and AGAINST discrimination! Here at Gadsden Guns, we believe that fear and prejudice are bad decision makers, and that’s why we’re out there every day educating people, sharing the TRUTH about firearms and shooting sports, and opposing anyone who uses fear, ignorance, and misinformation to keep the American people defenseless.

Even in 2015, discrimination still runs rampant, but it goes farther than you think. It’s not just about race – it’s about unscrupulous people in power using the public’s insecurities and lack of knowledge to assert control over the populace. Take, for example, the idea of an “assault rifle.” Did you know that there’s really no such thing? The myth of the so-called assault rifle is so widespread that most people think the AR in AR-15 stands for Assault Rifle, but in actuality, it’s an abbreviation for ArmaLite, the manufacturer. So what makes a rifle worthy of that scary title?

The answer might surprise you.

What you don’t know CAN hurt you.

Bringing home a new firearm purchase is like Christmas! You spent weeks, maybe months, picking out just the right one…you filled out all the necessary paperwork and jumped through all the legal hoops…you shelled out hundreds of dollars to get exactly what you wanted…

And now, you get to open the box. At home. And what’s inside is YOURS. But, wait, you’ve got some responsibility in that box, too.

We keep over the counter drugs out of the reach of children, we teach our teens how to safely operate a car, and we baby-proof kitchen drawers…every precaution possible to ensure the safety of our loved ones. What if you could actually calculate the exact probability of disaster? Would you be willing to take a few simple steps to decrease those chances and keep your family safe?

One simple trick to help small businesses succeed – without spending a dime!

PrintEveryone likes to see small, independently owned businesses succeed, especially ones in your neighborhood. It’s not easy for little mom and pop shops like Gadsden Guns to compete with big names and big advertising budgets, so we rely on a very special type of person to help us pay the bills every month. Fortunately for us, our customers and neighbors are exactly that kind of person, and we hope you are, too.

The thing is, there are a lot of people out there who are “all talk.” They say they want to see small businesses do well, but instead of eating at the local, family-owned restaurant, they dine at Applebees or Waffle House. These are the people that complain that a new Wal-Mart is going to put the local places out of business, but can be found standing in line at that same Wal-Mart on opening day. Most of these types of people couldn’t even tell you the names of the local pizza joint, the Ma and Pop gas station, the cute boutique that their neighbor just opened down the street.
