An Army sergeant faces life in prison for a shooting that happened at the height of the 2020 riots, and that he claims was in self-defense. The lead detective in the case ruled his actions were justifiable homicide. That detective has also accused the district attorney of illegal actions in a sworn statement.

Perry, an active duty soldier stationed at Fort Hood at the time, says a masked man approached his vehicle with an AK-47 in the "ready" position. When that man, Garrett Foster, 28, raised and pointed the rifle at Perry, the Army sergeant and licensed concealed handgun carry permit holder, grabbed a handgun that he carried for personal protection and fired at Foster, fatally wounded him.

Since March, the City of Boulder has been looking for ways to reverse its defeat in the NRA-ILA supported case challenging Boulder’s unlawful bans against commonly owned “assault weapons” and magazines capable of accepting more than ten rounds. This week, the City of Boulder finally abandoned its appeal of the lower court decision striking Boulder’s unlawful hardware prohibitions. Because Boulder’s appeal was dismissed with prejudice, Boulder cannot attempt to relitigate this case in the future.

.40 vs .45: Which One Is Better For Self-Defense?

When it comes to picking a handgun cartridge for your carry gun or for home defense, you can’t go wrong with the 40 Smith & Wesson (S&W) or the 45 ACP.

Both cartridges have faithfully served shooters for decades. The 45 ACP cut its teeth in the trenches of WWI and served the U.S. Military faithfully all the way through Vietnam. On the other hand, the 40 S&W was baptized by fire in the concrete jungle by law enforcement officers (LEO), the FBI, and CCW permit holders starting in the 90’s all the way up to the present day.
 

#8.5 Lead Shot Ammo: #8.5 Lead Shot Explained

If you know your shotgun ammo, you know exactly what #8.5 lead shot is for – sporting clays or 16-yard traps. What makes this round so perfect for these types of shooting? Twice as many pellets per shot than a #6 shot and more range and power than a #9 shot. You’re looking at 500 to 600 pellets with an effective range of about 25 to 30 yards. This particular shot is dead center in the “allowed shot size” for competitive target, skeet and clay pigeon shooting.

Michigan House and Senate Democrats have announced companion legislation to restrict magazine capacity, ostensibly to “save lives in mass shootings,” according to the Detroit Free Press.

Led by State Sen. Rosemary Bayer (D-Beverly Hills), the Democrat group announced Senate Bills 785 and 786, and House Bills 5627 and 5628, would prohibit selling or possessing a magazine capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition, beginning on January 1, 2023 if they are passed. The Senate versions are backed by Bayer and Sen. Jeremy Moss (D-Southfield). The House versions were introduced by State Reps. Brenda Carter (D-Pontiac) and Cynthia Johnson (D-Detroit.)

Ohio’s deer gun week numbers look fairly stable through a two- and four-year window, though the view leaves out significant historical perspectives. Hunters, most wielding rifles and shotguns, checked 70,413 whitetails during the seven-day season that closed last Sunday at one-half hour after sunset. The deer take lines up closely with last year’s count of 71,659. The difference, some 1,246 fewer whitetails, represents a year-to-year decline of about 1.7%.

A group of Democrats on Capitol Hill on Thursday fired a salvo of proposed new regulations on America's licensed gun dealers that would directly affect gun buyers. The "Federal Firearm Licensee Act" introduced by U.S. Rep. Robin Kelly, D-Ill, who serves as vice-chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, would rewrite federal law when it comes to FFLs, ranging from small mom-and-pop shops to big-box gun dealers. Pitched as a plan to go after "rogue dealers," Kelly contends it would have a strong impact on gun crime.

An often overlooked but never-the-less effective firearm from World War II, the Arisaka Type 99 represents the end of a line of bolt-action rifles used by the Empire of Japan. Despite their merits, Arisaka-family rifles like the Type 99 were often treated with a bit of scorn, if not outright disdain, inside the American firearms community.
