    So in the concealed and open carry world most firearms schools teach the two common techniques while drawing and firing the pistol. That is, the isosceles and the weaver method. But in reality and humorous is that everyone has a way of swaggering their body language into their style of shooting. The folks from Knockout Lights have observed these common positions that most fall into and here they are: The InstructorThe BowlerFishingThe Chicken Wing DrawGangstaSix Position drawIsosceles armor facing forwardThe Cross dominant EyeThe Lean Forward Speed ShooterThe I've put on a "Few Pounds Fanny Pack"Mossad Condition 3C.A.R.Minus the Ceiling Tiles...

    On the morning of June 8th, 2017, I was openly carrying a Glock 17 in a Fobus retention holster. I had to get some medical tests done. I did not have any problem where I had blood drawn. There were no "gun free zone" signs on the door. Next I went to the Yuma Regional Medical Center (YRMC) to get a chest X-ray.  It serves as a place to have medical tests done for the entire area. It is part of the Yuma hospital complex.  They have banned guns on their facility ever since the concealed carry shall issue...

    If you're into short barrel and Glocks then you may want to get a modifying kit for the Glock. CAA has a conversion kit that converts your Glock into a carbine. (sort of) Its aluminum and polymer RONI unit doesn't add any barrel length, the pistol is encapsulated, has an adjustable stock with cheekplate, a vertical foregrip and has lots of rail space for optics and a tactical light. Buttstock has the ability to store an extra magazine. What do you all think, is it worth getting one? See the Micro Roni footage here.

    Like most members of law enforcement, Lynn Koch dreads the day he has to draw his service weapon. Even if to protect his own life, it can mean death to another person. But on a cold winter day Koch, a Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks game warden, drew his .45 Glock to save the lives of two animals, and ensure the safety of another game warden and his own. “I have a lariat in my pickup, but knew there was no way to use it without one of us maybe getting hurt,” Koch said of when he and fellow...

    State Attorney General Maura Healey’s office and a Worcester gun dealer have settled a case that involved selling handguns that were not Massachusetts-compliant. The Gun Parlor has agreed to end sales of handguns that do not meet state-mandated safety regulations, specifically load indicators and magazine safety disconnects, and pay $10,000 in fees and costs associated with an investigation into the store while $25,000 in fines will remain outstanding and will be waived if the shop remains in compliance for two years. “In Massachusetts, we rely on gun dealers to help ensure responsible gun ownership and use by following the...

Deaths involving powerful synthetic opiates, like fentanyl, rose by nearly 75 percent from 2014 to 2015.

    Saving the reefs and getting a good meal– with a gun! Consuming eighty per-cent of a reef’s edible baitfish in mere weeks and overpopulating like mad, the Lionfish is a deeply invasive species with no natural predators in the area– at least until now. Here in this video, the crew with Go Fish Productions opted to go Lionfish hunting– and with a gun! They used nontoxic, lead-free ammuniton and ate what they caught, all while doing their best to preserve the reef and keep its more native inhabitants happy. Not a bad job, and it looks like fun!

    A $75,000 personal injury case against Glock filed by an Arkansas policeman has been scheduled for trial in a federal court, according to the final scheduling order issued last week. The jury trial will start Aug. 21, 2017, in a federal court in Helena, Arkansas, the order says. Final arguments and discovery exhibits are due in the beginning months of the year.

At the time he was trying to...

    A woman is dead after she was accidentally shot by a Florida police officer in a citizen training academy roleplay scenario gone wrong. Mary Knowlton was one of two participants randomly selected from a group of 35 for a shoot-don’t shoot simulation during a two-hour training Tuesday at the Punta Gorda Police Department, Chief Tom Lewis told reporters at a press conference. “During the first scenario, in a horrible accident participant Mary Knowlton was mistakenly struck by a live round,” Lewis said. She was transported to the local hospital where she was pronounced dead. “I am asking that if you...

    Those who demand a disarmed population claim that it is the easy availability of guns that causes people to do bad things with guns. The core assumption is that guns have no useful function.  The people who wish to disarm the population constantly say that guns are only made and used for one thing - to kill people.  It is implied is that no person actually wants to kill people, and they would not, if there were no guns. From that follows the idea that people do not really want guns.  If only some barriers were put in place...

    The Federal Bureau of Investigation awarded Glock an $85 million contract to produce 9mm handguns for the better part of a decade, according to the notice published Wednesday. The contract marks a milestone in the history of FBI weapons as the agency famously ditched 9mm in the mid-1980s for a larger .40-caliber handgun. The return comes after 30 years of ballistic improvements to 9mm ammunition. The contract covers five items that include a compact pistol, a full-size pistol, an inert training pistol, a Simunition training pistol, and replacement parts, according to the solicitation. Specifications in the solicitation suggest Glock...

    Sometimes, it’s simply more cost-effective for companies to settle a civil lawsuit with a payoff than it is to pay the crushing legal costs of defending yourself in court. It’s sad that being in the right is utterly irrelevant, but that’s simply the way our sue-happy civil court system in this Republic is regretfully designed to operate. We’re seeing that play out in California right now, as Glock is settling a case with a former LAPD officer who sued Glock for a negligent discharge shooting that left him paralyzed. Attorneys for a gun manufacturer and a retired LAPD officer...

    Chavez, now 45, was off duty when he was shot on July 11, 2006, while driving his Ford Ranger near Harbor Boulevard and La Palma Avenue in Anaheim. The former Marine, who joined the LAPD in 1996, was on his way to drop off his son, Collin, with a family member before testifying in a court case. The boy was able to get hold of his father’s weapon while sitting in the back seat and shot the officer in the back. Chavez, who was assigned to the Newton Division, was rendered a paraplegic paralyzed from the waist down. Judge Kevin...
