  • 3 Reasons You Need a Rimfire Training Gun

    08/21/2018 11:52:47 AM PDT · by PROCON · 22 replies ^ | August 21, 2018 | Brad Fitzpatrick
    Like many shooters, I started off plinking cans and punching paper targets with a rimfire .22 Long Rifle when I was a kid. That first rifle—an aged single-shot with rough iron sights and a short stock—became the gun that served to teach me the fundamentals of accurate shooting and safe firearm handling. And although I no longer have that little rifle I still keep several rimfire handguns and rifles on-hand. In fact, I have more rimfires than centerfires and shotguns combined. Why? Because they’re fun and affordable to shoot, and they help me become more proficient with larger firearms. A...

  • NYT Editorial Board’s Mara Gay: ‘America Was Never Great’ Is ‘Honest,’ Not a ‘Gaffe’

    Mara Gay, a member of the far-left New York Times editorial board, believes Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) was being honest when he said America “was never that great.” She also agrees with the sentiment. During a speech before supporters Wednesday, Cuomo was very clear about why he does not believe America has ever been great. After criticizing President Trump’s “Make America Great” slogan, Cuomo laid out his reasoning. “We’re not going to make America great again. It was never that great,” he said, as his supporters laughed and gasped. “We have not reached greatness, we will reach greatness when every...

    MANILA - A book about Filipino women written by a Korean man has been removed from online book retailers after complaints that it is "obscene and racist." According to The Korea Times, the e-book "How to Treat Bar Hostesses in the Philippines" received flak after a tweet about it spread earlier this month. Many expressed concern about the book's content, which talks about how to deal with Filipino women from a Korean man's perspective. The book's author, identified only as "Kevin Cho," urged his readers to "make the best use of Filipinas, who can give unforgettable memories." "Even if you...

    A few days ago, I had a dust-up on Twitter with National Review’s Jonah Goldberg. Our conflict was about Trump’s fitness to be president, a subject that has been broached millions of times on social media by other internet partisans. Twitchy posted the exchange and promoted it this way: “It’s On! Jonah Goldberg, David Horowitz Duke It Out Over Trump’s Character.” The donnybrook led to 500,000 impressions on my Twitter feed, including legions of anti-Trump zealots eager to demonstrate how creative they could be in devising insults to throw at me for defending Trump: beyond dumb, in need of psychiatric...

    SALISBURY, MA -- Stephanie Clifford, better known as Stormy Daniels, is making one of her first Massachusetts appearances next month since claiming she was paid $130,000 to keep quiet about an affair with President Donald Trump. The adult film actress will appear at Kittens Gentlemen's Club in Salisbury on September 7 and 8. Daniels announced the appearance in a post on Twitter. "We just had Bridget the Midget there so when we took her sign down, we put her's (Daniels) up," club owner Kevin Moury told the Eagle-Tribune, which first reported this story. "We're looking forward to it." While the...

    Over the last few years in the US, various cities have removed Confederate monuments, statues, and memorials of anything supposedly to do with slavery and or suppression. This has and is still being done under the direction of various chapters of Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA via those in local office who are members of these groups. Much of the funding for removing these historical items is through anonymous donors, so we are told by city and county officials at the time, such as in the case of the removal of Confederate monuments in the city of New Orleans a...

    New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg argued with her fellow panelists on MSNBC’s "Meet the Press Daily" Friday about whether President Donald Trump is the leader of the free world or an aspiring despot. RealClearPolitics reporter Caitlin Huey-Burns was criticizing Trump’s communication strategy when she called him "the leader of the free world." Goldberg interjected to say that, actually, German Chancellor Angela Merkel is the leader of the free world. "He’s not the leader of the free world, but, sorry," Goldberg said. "By default he’s the leader of the free world," Commentary magazine editor John Podhoretz replied. "Angela Merkel is...

For the past two weeks, the 98-year-old Korean War veteran has walked about 6 miles each way to visit his wife of 50 years, who is paralyzed and at the hospital, Spectrum News Rochester reported. “I ain’t nothing without my wife,” Younger told Spectrum New Rochester. “It’s been a rough pull. It’s been tough.” (TWEET-AT-LINK) He was walking in the rain Tuesday when he got help from a passerby. “I had to pick him up and I couldn’t be one of the ones who would just drive by,” Dan Bookhard told Spectrum News...

    Omarosa Manigault Newman was put in the hot seat while trying to explain why she continued to work for President Trump after she believed he used racial language. The former White House staff member conducted an interview with TMZ on Tuesday to discuss the secret recordings she speaks about in her new book “Unhinged.” Manigault Newman recently released a conversation between her and campaigners Lynne Patton and Katrina Pierson in 2016. All three staffers can be heard discussing Trump saying the word “nigger”. Patton said the president denied using the racial slur when asked, but Manigault Newman responded back, “That’s...

    Maybe the Black community doesn’t hate Trump as initially assumed as the American President saw a surge in his support from Black Americans. This comes even after reports emerged that Trump used the N-word in a recording while on the TV Show ‘The Apprentice.’ At the moment, the approval rating from the Black community sits at 36% which represents double of what it was last year and it’s more than triple what it was in 2016 when it sat at a depressing 8%. What are the reasons for this? Well, it is speculated that it is largely due to Black...

    Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones found an unlikely ally in liberal comedian Bill Maher on Friday. Maher defended Jones on his show, HBO’s “Real Time,” after Jones and his company, InfoWars, were essentially purged from social media. The bans came after CNN pressed social media companies to investigate whether Jones’ content violated their terms of service. What did Maher say? During a panel discussion, Maher defended Jones’ right to speak freely without recourse. Maher explained the protection of free speech is a fundamental value of liberalism. “If you’re a liberal, you’re supposed to be for free speech. That’s free speech for...

    With the mainstream media focusing on the one-year anniversary of the Charlottesville riots of last year, many news organizations are basically blaming President Trump for stoking the hatred and racial tension that led to the violence in that small college town, because of his coarse rhetoric on immigration and the NFL player protests. I will concede that Trump is not without blame in contributing to some of the coarseness of our society, but it’s hard to deny the fact that Trump has been consistent his whole, adult life. Trump has always been brash, arrogant, self-centered, abrasive in his language, and...

    Beyond the music itself, the moment everyone talked about after Franklin’s performance at the Kennedy Center was the way, just before the final chorus, as she was reaching the all-out crescendo, she stripped off her mink and let it fall to the floor.
