I Have No Respect For A Person Who Willingly Gives Up Their Rights

Colt LE6920 AR-15 with some modifications along the way. DL Hughley doesn't think we should have these.

This past Friday, Justin from Canada unilaterally banned 1500 types and brands of firearms in the country he ostensibly is the leader of. OK, it’s Canada and to be blunt, it’s their own business on how they react to an unfortunate series of events. My sympathies to those who lost in Nova Scotia, but yes - it’s Canadian business. Of course, the usual blue-check brigade members in the US decided to chime in and wonder why we “can’t do that in the US”, including notable has-been DL Hughley.

The Pros And Cons Of The .40 S&W Caliber

A Smith & Wesson M&P 40 Shield Pistol and Speer LE 180 grain Gold Dot Hollow Point .40 S&W ammo.

Ah, .40 Smith & Wesson, aka .40 S&W, aka .40 Short & Weak. Once regarded as the “just right” caliber of the pistol world, due to it’s mass acceptance and deployment by professional users here in the US, it’s gradually been relegated to “red-headed stepchild” status, especially with the advent of more potent 9mm loads over the past 25 years.

You got yourself that black rifle you were eyeballing the other day. You beat the Chinese Engineered Virus panic buying, and it’s now sitting pretty in your possession. Out of the box it has some basic sights, probably from Magpul, sitting on the top rail. You’re perusing the interwebs and innumerable people, most with a host of knowledge beyond mine, have picked sides on the Red Dot Sight vs Iron Sights debate.

My take? Why not both? You got a lot of room on that top rail.

Learn A Different Gun

Strive for competency across multiple firearms platforms.

You thought ahead. You’re cruising through the COVID-19/Chinese Flu/Beer Flu/Flu-Tang-Clan-Flu with a smile on your face since you stockpiled oodles of ammo, plenty of guns, and the other essentials in advance. You don’t need to panic buy. You’re good. But, seeing all that commerce go down, despite the insane gibberings of tepid soft-core porn starlet Samantha Micelli, makes you want to engage in some retail therapy of your own.

Why not learn a different gun?

45 ACP Should Be Your Alternate Pistol Caliber

.45 ACP cartridges with a GLOCK 30

It’s no secret that ammunition in common calibers is in short supply at the moment. And if it is available, prices may be marked up, often severely. The conventional wisdom is to own at least one firearm of several common calibers. But what happens when even a “ubiquitous” caliber runs in short supply?

You’ll need an alternate caliber - in the case of pistols, it should be the venerable .45 ACP, developed by the Gun Jesus himself, John Moses Browning.
