    The original Marlboro Man died this week at his Colorado Springs ranch at the ripe old age of 90 — likely because he never actually smoked cigarettes. Norris quit the business suddenly — after realizing he was setting a bad example for his two daughters and two sons.

    For deer and midsized-game hunters, Federal line 'among the best projectiles available' for the job. For over a century, ammunition and bullet companies have worked diligently to produce the best hunting projectile possible. Sometimes the technology was the challenge – could you imagine if Jack O’Connor and Elmer Keith had today’s projectiles? – and sometimes it was the cost of bullet production, and thereby the cost to the consumer, which had an effect on success. Federal – who, through its Premium ammunition line has embraced many different premium bullets – has been spending lots of time tweaking and refining their...

    Tippmann Armory makes a modern take on the famous Gatling Gun - The Gatling gun played a major role in Kitchener's defeat of the Mahdist forces. If General with them, Khartoum would not have fallen at the start of that war. As late as the Boxer Rebellion in China, a relief column rushing to try to rescue a British outpost with little hope of finding them alive was surprised to find that a very busy Gatling gun had preserved the lot of them. Gatling guns continued in service in the U.S. and U.K. until 1911, when they were declared obsolete....

    Full Conceal Folding Full-Size M3D and Sub-Compact M3S Hi-Capacity 9mm Pistols - From the corner of her eye, Christina saw the lumbering man aiming his pistol at her and she knew she was about to die. She didn't close her eyes. When the shot came a moment later, the blast was deafening. She was surprised she didn't feel anything. It wasn’t until the fifth blast that she became aware the shadow of the lumbering figure was gone and she heard what she thought to be the weak tinkling of small bells. Tiny bright objects began to dance on the polished...
  • On impeachment, Trump and allies on Facebook are outspending rivals as much as 4 to 1

    President Donald Trump and his allies are outspending rivals on impeachment-related advertising on Facebook, demonstrating their dominance on the platform as they wrestle for control of a fast-evolving narrative that could threaten his presidency. The spending discrepancy appears to be as gaping as 4 to 1, based on recent data from Facebook's public ad archive, which reports all figures in ranges. Between Sept 20 and Tuesday morning (Oct 2), Trump allies funneled as much as US$3 million (S$4.1 million) into ads opposing impeachment or assailing House Democrats for beginning a formal inquiry, according to data analysed by Laura Edelson, a...
  • Anyone for Wilson AR9 Pistol?

    Pistol caliber carbines have become extremely popular for the last few years with the plinkers and prepper crowd. During the ammo shortage, the prolific Wilson Combat company produced their 9mm rifle the AR9. This was supposed to let people enjoy shooting one caliber in a carbine or pistol. At first glimpse the Wilson AR9 has the similar appearance of an AR-15, so obviously an AR clone. It’s a quality-built 9mm AR with a quality AR price of $2,095. The idea is nice utilizing one caliber across platforms. Unfortunately, that price is what's killing it in the eyes of many buyers....

    The Best Gun is the One you Have with You - What would you think of a gun that you could carry in plain sight, was easily accessible in your back pocket or a belt holster, and wouldn’t attract the slightest attention? Nobody would look twice at it, even if you were in a T-shirt, with no jacket, and they were standing right next to you in the supermarket check-out line, or even if you were wearing only shorts and sneakers playing Frisbee at the park. This invisible gun could save your life in a desperate situation, when its appearance...

    Following complaints from the public over the past couple of years, the UK Advertising Standards Agency (ASA) has implemented new rules for television and print advertising. The purpose of these regulations is to eliminate “harmful gender stereotyping” in ads. If that phrase leaves you scratching your head, don’t worry. You’re not alone.In any event, the first two “harmful” ads have been banned from the airwaves. They were from Volkswagen and Philadelphia cream cheese. So what were they depicting? Child abuse? Violence against women? Racism? Nope. One was a shot of a woman sitting in the park next to a baby...

    The need for a back-up or hide-out pistol goes hand in hand with holsters made for out of the way places, like ankle holsters. I have used ankle holsters that ranged from wearable to painful but I have finally found one that you can actually carry the gun in without noticing it. These are intended for maximum concealment, not fast draw, but ankle holsters are never very good for fast draws. The Gun Sox Stretx Holstering System from Cheata Tactical consists of a well padded stretch sock-like section that goes between the ankle and the knee. It comes in the...

As a Second Amendment supporter, hunter, husband, father and a homeowner, I wanted to see how well the LumaShark would perform in different situations. Fortune shined her eyes on me when I was given the opportunity to field-test one of the patented units for the past couple months. A GREAT MATCH The LumaShark is a 12-inch free float handguard that eliminates...

"Working with our factories in Turkey, we are able to provide a level of features, quality and performance one would only expect from a gun costing much more."

    Budweiser celebrated “International Women’s Day” on Friday by rewriting history to “better portray balance and empowerment” in their old advertisements.The company partnered with “an organization devoted to the accurate portrayal of women in media” to rework their advertisements from the 1950s and 1960s.But the new “accurate portrayal” of the 50s and 60s completely removed one of the biggest cultural phenomenons of the era — traditional gender roles.Take a look for yourself. The company posted its head-scratching new advertisements on Twitter alongside the old advertisements. This year, in honor of #InternationalWomensDay, we are reimagining our ads of the past to better...

    If you’re desperate for a smile while stuck in Seattle-area traffic, just look toward the billboards where Washington state has launched a $4.4 million marketing campaign that promotes the new Highway 99 tunnel as resembling a happy face. The messages remind motorists this four-lane tunnel goes completely under downtown, from the stadiums to the Space Needle. Television ads depict people performing a swooping “under” gesture — for instance, while ordering a chicken sandwich with meat beneath the lettuce. Viewers are encouraged to check The shape resembles the trademark smile of Amazon, which dominates several blocks near the tunnel’s north...

    Emails leaked exclusively to Breitbart News reveal that a group of Google employees, with encouragement from the tech giant’s director of monetization, began plotting the downfall of this website shortly after the 2016 election. The group sought to strike at Breitbart News’ revenue by kicking the site off Google’s market-dominating ad services. Although their efforts ultimately failed, the discussion featured senior Google employees speaking frankly about their reasons for targeting the site. These included unfounded allegations of “hate speech” and “fake news.” In the leaked emails, Google employee Richard Zippel advised a fellow employee that Google would act against Breitbart...

    A long, thoughtful article on the 2018 battle for Congress got me thinking. Is it possible for the good folks at Free Republic to whip up a few short, punchy scripts for election commercials aimed at television and webcasting audiences? Perhaps excerpting the aforementioned article would be helpful: How Republicans Could Still Win A forthcoming poll suggests ways they can persuade voters in swing districts. This was a week of gloomy midterm polls for the Republican Party, with a wave of results projecting a Democratic takeover of the House and maybe even the Senate. But not all polls are created...

    The ongoing national anthem controversy -- and NFL players potential continuing protests -- might influence TV networks ad pricing in the early part of the season. Jeff Greenfield, COO C3 Metrics, a media measurement company, said in an email: "NFL CPMs [cost per thousand viewer prices] will likely drop in the first quarter of "Sunday Night Football" and "Monday Night Football" because large advertisers want to avoid controversy on those high-profile nights at all costs as [President] Trump will likely beat his twitter drum.” He added: “[This] will free up the inventory surrounding the national anthem, causing CPMs to drop...
