    Roy's friend, Pete Peterson holds up a couple of wolf hides in Canada Roy Eykamp is 100 years old and living in NSW, Australia. Shortly after WWII, Roy hunted wolves from a light, ski-equipped airplane in Ontario, Canada. He had tremendous success. He partnered with Harley Rauch, a famous South Dakota pilot.  Hunting wolves from an airplane while mere feet off the ground was a dangerous undertaking. Roy nearly died in a crash. I was fortunate enough to interview Roy. In the video, he explains the technique used to hunt wolves from the air, how the crash occurred, and...

    Happy early Thanksgiving, America. I know he’s running for president in a verrrrrrrrrrrry crowded field and has to strain to get noticed. But between this and shrugging off death threats aimed at Susan Collins, it seems like there … must be a better way. Here’s the tweet that started it all, flagging an op-ed Swalwell wrote back in May endorsing a mandatory gun buyback program (i.e. confiscation) with criminal prosecution for those who refuse.

    (National Sentinel) Self-Defense: Most reasonable people understand that it is entirely unreasonable for authorities to require persons to come up with a “good reason” why they want to use the best available means — a firearm — to defend themselves. Not only is it a constitutional right to keep and bear arms, but the desire to protect yourself from harm is also an instinct in the vast majority of people that needs no explanation, validation, or proof. Yet nearly every major American city is run by Left-wing Democrats who believe that your right to self-defense is a matter for them...

    The city of Republic in Washington state is mulling legislation that would shield residents from state gun control laws that were approved by voters last week. Republic Mayor Elbert Koontz said the Republic City Council will begin discussing the idea of becoming a “sanctuary city” to protect residents against Initiative 1639, which goes into effect Jan. 1, The Spokesman-Review reported. The sweeping gun-control measure includes raising the age limit for buying semi-automatic rifles from 18 to 21 and requiring buyers of those weapons to pass an enhanced background check, show proof of firearms-training and complete a 10-day waiting period before...

    Here’s a Friday hypothetical for you: Let’s say you purchase something that costs $50,000. Not a car or a boat or anything sizable like that, but rather something that’s portable. A nice piece of jewelry, perhaps. What’s the first thing you do with it when you’re not using it? You lock it up, right? Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside did not lock it up, and it wasn’t a $50,000 piece of jewelry. Rather, he had a just-purchased Colt M16 assault rifle stolen from his unlocked Rolls-Royce in July. Andy Slater of 640 AM in Miami has the scoop after reviewing...

    Corporal Thompson could see the driver moving around in the seat, and could see there was a passenger with him as well. The driver of the vehicle eventually stopped on Steele Road. When Corporal Thompson exited his vehicle, the driver immediately opened his car door and began shooting at Corporal Thompson. Corporal Thompson returned fire and numerous rounds were exchanged before the suspect jumped back into his vehicle and took off, eastbound on Steele Road. He traveled a short distance, stopped and let a female passenger out of the vehicle, then took off again.

    Am Shooting Journal ^ | 11/16/2018 | B Hormberg
    Did you know that replacing the factory gas block on your AR-15 with an adjustable gas block can improve your rifle’s performance? Such as: -Less recoil, results in a faster follow-up shot. -Less stress on the operating parts. -Less carbon build-up, better reliability and easier cleaning. The concept of an adjustable-gas system has been around for quite a while. Competition shooters using M1 Garand rifles, a semiauto first used in the US military in 1936, found utility in adjustable gas plugs to regulate the cycling of the action by letting out a little extra gas. Perhaps the most prolific use...

My question is, should I buy one or should I undertake the task of building one?Although I have significant experience with many types of firearms, I have no experience "building" a firearm by ordering parts from different companies and assembling them.

    Is it good for Hunting? Do you hunt with action lever rifles? (repeaters) There was a period when lever action rifles were completely out of the picture for hunting. Thanks to companies like Marlin, Henry and Winchester as they still make these fine repeating rifles. Its amazing to see in this heavy marketed AR-platform and bolt action world that the repeating firearms are making a comeback. Veteran hunters may be the ones influencing the newer generation of hunters. Maybe, the newbies are out there looking to be like John Wayne. Good thing this isn’t a faddish thing because hunting deer...

    The Truth About Guns ^ | 11/15/18 | Dan Zimmerman
    “The Department of Justice is issuing a rulemaking that would interpret the statutory definition of machine gun in the National Firearms Act of 1934 and Gun Control Act of 1968 to clarify whether certain devices, commonly known as bump-fire stocks, fall within that definition.” That’s the intro (or “abstract”) to the DoJ’s newly issued public rule following their re-examination of the classification of bump fire stocks. This, of course, was done after last year’s Las Vegas Mandalay Bay shooting in which 58 people were killed and hundreds more were injured. That was the only crime in which a bump fire...
  • APA Study Shows Irresponsible Media Coverage Doubles Mass Shootings

    U.S.A. -( A paper presented to the American Psychological Association found the number of mass killings, rampage killings or “mass shootings”, may be doubled by irresponsible media aggrandizement of mass killers. The desire for fame was found to be one of the main motivators of these rampage killers. From “Unfortunately, we find that a cross-cutting trait among many profiles of mass shooters is desire for fame,” she said. This quest for fame among mass shooters skyrocketed since the mid-1990s “in correspondence to the emergence of widespread 24-hour news coverage on cable news programs, and the rise of the internet during...
