"'Two weeks before Spokane police Officer Barry O’Connell’s daughter accidently shot herself [in the leg] Easter Sunday with her father’s department-issued pistol,' spokesman.com reports, 'O’Connell [above] had completed a gun safety refresher course stressing the importance of properly securing firearms – especially around children.' ... [T]he fact that O’Connell’s instructor upbraided his student for piss-poor muzzle control and nonchalant gun handling indicates larger issues with the Spokane force. Why didn't Sgt. Matthew Cowles recommend that the force confiscate O’Connell's gun and sideline the officer until he learned proper gun handling? According to Cowles . . ." ...

"One of my favorite gun gurus ... once said, 'If someone’s in my house who shouldn’t be I’m shooting them.' It was the only statement he ever made with which I disagreed. But hey, he’s a combat vet: a man who knows a thing or two about playing the odds. Odds are if someone’s in your house who shouldn’t be—especially at 'o dark hundred—they pose a credible, imminent threat to life and limb. But not always. I keep bringing up the possibility of a child providing early morning unauthorized access (or egress) to a member of the opposite sex. True story.

"Few adult shooters use firearms that truly 'fit' them dimensionally; rather, most select a firearm, and then compensate accordingly. Ironically, many of these same arms are also used to teach youth critical firearm skills, yet they do not even fit their adult instructors. How then, can they possibly fit a child or teenager? Ideally, youth-specific firearms for instructional purposes and hunting would fit their small physiques—and they would have features that enhance safety. Such was the concept behind the Savage Rascal." ...

"In 2011 Kel-Tec introduced a new product, a new product line, and a fresh, new design to the U.S. market called the Kel-Tec Shotgun. What made it so unique is that it’s a bull-pup, pump action shotgun, and while it works like any other shotgun – you pump the slide, pull the trigger, it goes bang – the way it loads and unloads differs from a basic design like that of the Remington 870 or Mossberg 500. More often than not introducing something that differs from the norm is considered risky, and in order to be successful the concept has to be good, really good. So, where does the KSG fall?" ...

"Whether or not to buy the Ruger American Rifle came down to a coin flip for me. A few months ago I was overcome with two distinct itches. One was to buy a new gun and the other was to CoinStar the change in my change jar, which was beginning to weigh more than my children. The two itches seemed to complement one another, and the two candidates for my splurge came down to a Chilean military Madsen rifle in .30-06 (I have an affinity for old military rifles) and the Ruger American Rifle in .270. In the end, the Ruger won by virtue of its price. I had exactly enough money to pay the $375 price tag with what was in the coin jar while the Madsen would have required a little extra." ...

"Cheaper Than Dirt recently posted an interview with Former U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, author of American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History. It seems the shooting instructor doesn’t have much time for civilian sniper wanna-be’s. 'We do not teach civilians sniping. We do teach precision shooting, which can be employed in self defense and hunting. If someone wants to be a sniper, then they need to enlist in the military or in law enforcement.' A distinction without a difference? Code for 'preppers welcome'? Let’s think about that one for a moment. What good would civilian snipers be if Uncle Sam turned into Uncle Adolph?

"The story of the .38 Super cartridge starts in 1900 when Colt introduced the John Browning-designed Model 1900 .38 Automatic pistol. Interestingly, that was two years prior to the introduction of the 9 mm Luger/Parabellum. Both utilize a 0.355-inch-diameter bullet and are ballistically very similar in performance. The 9 mm Luger was almost immediately adopted by the German military but the .38 Automatic Colt Pistol (ACP) was rejected by the U.S. military, which ultimately adopted the .45 ACP cartridge and the Colt Government Model in 1911." ...

You can now buy a holster that keeps gang bangers, terrorists, [illegal] drug cartel reps and tyrannical government ops from using a night vision device to ID your holster from a distance.

"If you want to avoid/survive a violent attack, situational awareness may not be enough. Humans simply aren’t wired to maintain maximum vigilance every waking moment of their lives, even in war zones. Out and about in your regular haunts? At some point, you will let your guard down. But wait, there’s more! Whether or not you see an assault coming, your attacker has the first mover advantage. In other words, there’s a good chance they’ll get the jump on you. That you will be 'behind the curve.' That you may find yourself just a fraction of a moment away from a close encounter with a gun/knife/baseball bat/fist/etc. Or outnumbered. Or surrounded. Or all of the above. Which pretty much leaves you with two options . . ." ...

Coonan sold Coonan Arms to Bill Davis in 1985, and five years later he left the company. In 1994, Coonan Arms filed Chapter 11 and eventually was incorporated by JS Worldwide Distribution. Both Coonan Arms and JS Worldwide were dissolved in 1998."
