CCW Weekend: Tristar Arms C-100
Submitted by: David Williamson

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
The TriStar C-100 is something of a paradox. It’s a compact, but shoots like a full-size. It’s a clone of the CZ-75 Compact, so it’s an old design. However, it has a lot of modern appointments so it isn’t dated by any means. It’s a value gun (and a great one at that) but doesn’t feel cheap at all and is actually better-made than its price point would suggest. This gun doesn’t do ballads; it’s all metal. However, it’s almost as light as many polymer pistols of the same size thanks to the lightweight alloy frame. It’s a hammer-fired DA/SA pistol in an era of plastic fantastics.

They are underfunded, but they are energized, reminding everyone within earshot that “dollars don’t vote, people do.”

During a heated exchange regarding the nomination of judges to the Supreme Court, Cruz asserted Democratic Rep. Robert “Beto” O’Rourke wants to elect “liberal judicial activists on the court” — a claim O’Rourke did not dispute.

Outdoors in Maine: Crossbows Gaining Respect, Being used More

Although crossbows have never held a lot of appeal for me, I have hunted with a borrowed crossbow in the deer-rich state of Maryland. For me, it just seems awkward to carry while still hunting, and it doesn’t have the visual appeal of conventional longbows, recurves or compound bows. As a hunting device, it is accurate and lethal, and, in the eyes of the law and the hardcore bow hunters, neither fish nor fowl. The Maine Warden Service considers the crossbow not to be a firearm. The Maine Bowhunters Association (MBA) could never warm up to the medieval contraption, deeming it not a true bow.

But he added, “Despite what I was feeling, I wasn’t taking action about it.”

We're still enjoying Pete Flores's super-victory in a state Senate election in South Texas. He flipped a Democrat seat in a district that the GOP assumed it couldn't win. In fact, the GOP had not win this district in 139 years! How did Mr. Flores do it? How did a novice politician defeat an experienced and well known former congressman? How did a GOP candidate win a district that's 73 percent black and Hispanic?

Polymer-frame, striker-fired pistols have pretty much taken over the law-enforcement and self-defense markets, and they’re making significant inroads into the military market as well. Aside from a few companies that specialize in the 1911 platform, every major pistol manufacturer produces some form of striker-fired polymer gun, and Beretta is no exception. Famous for producing top-quality double-action pistols like the ubiquitous Model 92 and the compact Px4 Storm, Beretta entered the full-size, striker-fired game in 2017 with the APX, a service pistol offering features like interchangeable backstraps and a nice trigger.

True to form, Glacier Guides supplied a detailed equipment list that didn’t stint on citing specific products, while also making clear they want clients to bring enough gun (See the full list below). Given the demanding the conditions, I did my best to stick to the guidelines.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Some of the worst abuses of government force in recent years were precipitated by technical and victimless gun-law violations. For example, the BATF claimed that the Branch Davidians possessed machine guns without paying the required federal tax and filling in the proper registration forms. So a tax case worth less than $10,000 led to a 76-man helicopter, machine gun, and grenade assault on a home in which 2/3 of the occupants were women and children. — Dave Kopel and Dr. Michael S. Brown, Prohibition Fever, NationalReview.com
