I know you freepers are a resourceful bunch. I was hoping one of you might have some old issues you don't want anymore that I could have. I subscribed to National Review for a few years, but...

I've got a late 80s Taurus PT99 in 9mm & a Star FireStar in .40S&W. The mags in both are getting a bit long in the tooth. Factory magazines are simply no longer an option for either. The most commonly available magazines for both are Meg-Gar or Promag. In the case of the Firestar, it appears that the only choice IS Promag, though I've seen references to...

The magazine will still feature women in provocative poses, but they will no longer be fully nude, Playboy said in a statement. The change, to take place in March, represents a major shift for the magazine, which broke new ground when Hugh Hefner created it and featured Marilyn Monroe on its debut cover in 1953. It marks the latest step away from depictions of full nudity, which were banned from the magazine's website in August 2014. The magazine claims it website...

    Count Mad Magazine as the first pop culture institution to target President Barack Obama's Taliban prisoner swap. It's hard to imagine any other humorist in any other medium hitting back quite so hard in the days to come. The magazine posted a fake movie advertisement for Trading Private Bergdahl, a takeoff on the Oscar-winning film Saving Private Ryan. The one-sheet features five Taliban soldiers and President Obama with this kicker: "They got five Taliban leaders. We got one deserting weasel."

    Time magazine is rushing to President Obama´s side to defend him against the charge that he negotiated with terrorists to secure the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. The magazine tells readers that the maxim that America doesn´t negotiate with terrorists is more of a general ideal than a hard-bound policy and cites several other presidents who, the magazine claims, did negotiate with terrorists. Time notes that during the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis Jimmy Carter negotiated with the Iranian Mullahs who took over Iran after deposing the Shah. Reagan also negotiated with the Mullahs, Time notes. Of course, in both cases

These state comprise the first two months of the 2016 Presidential primary season, and the majority of Republican voters in these states are either very pro-gun to begin with, or are trending towards passing much more Second Amendment-friendly laws. Any candidate that doesn’t do well in these early primaries can kiss their Presidential aspirations goodbye, and one of the fastest ways to sink...

    One day into the Colorado ban on magazines that hold more than 15 rounds of ammunition, pawn shop owners have discovered the first unintended consequence of the new law — people who’ve pawned weapons with now-outlawed 30-round magazines can’t get the magazines back, even if they pay off their pawnshop loans. Under Colorado law, when customers pawn items, they transfer ownership to the pawn broker in exchange for the right of first refusal to buy them back under the terms of the pawn agreement. As of Monday, it’s illegal to buy magazines that hold more than 15 rounds, leaving some...

That has now changed, and the bill has some . . . interesting provisions. Despite Rep. Israel's claim of concern about "undetectable" firearms and magazines, it has become increasingly clear that his real concern is the government's impending loss of control of the people's acquisition of firearms, because 3-D printing and other technologies are quickly putting home manufacture of guns...

The proposed compromise among legislative leaders would ban large-capacity magazines containing more than 10 bullets – such as the 30-round magazines that Adam Lanza used in the Dec. 14 Newtown school massacre – but would allow owners of existing larger-capacity magazines to keep them if they submit to a new registration system, informed sources have told The Courant.

    Warning that we need to “get weapons of war and massive ammunition magazines off our streets,” in his State of the Union, Obama kept repeating congress must vote on the three types of gun bills he supports. The most obvious thing that was left out of the talk was that none of the laws now being proposed would have done anything to stop the various attacks that Obama cited as justifying the laws. Nor does the evidence show that the previous Assault Weapon Ban from 1994 to 2004 reduced crime. Were some of the killers mentally ill? Undoubtedly, “yes,” but...

    One of the most talked about components of gun control legislation is a magazine capacity limit. Proponents of gun control will often question why anyone needs more than X number of rounds (often 10) in their magazine. This is usually answered with a response about how it isn’t about what we “need” or with an analogy like “why does anyone need a car that goes faster than the speed limit.” Both of these answers are true but they leave a lot to be desired because there are practical reasons for why we actually do need magazines with larger capacities. Many...

    More 3D printed magazines coming. The people at Defense Distributed are hard at work creating files to print out popular magazines in standard capacities of 10, 15, 17, 25, 30, 33, and 40 rounds. At least one of the people working on the DefCad site has already printed a floor-plate and magazine body for a Glock pistol. The early Glock magazines were made of plastic, so they are well suited for this process. We will not know how these designs will hold up until they are actually printed and tested. However, 30 round magazines that were prototyped for the...

    3D printed magazines have been successfully used by Kel-Tec for three years, I discovered at the NSSF Shot Show in Las Vegas yesterday. I talked to Tobias Obermeit, Lead Design Engineer at Kel-Tec, one of the most innovative firearms manufacturers in the United States. Mr. Obermeit said that "Without 3D printing, the PMR-30 would not have been developed, especially the magazine." Mr. Obermeit informed me that a prototype magazine would be printed and then be used for 100 to 150 rounds, when they would develop cracks. The magazine would then be discarded and another magazine printed. Tobias Obermeit holding a...

    QUESTION: HOW MANY GUNS PROTECT THE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT IN CHIEF? When I was active duty, there was a minimum of about 30 guns around the POTUS, established in 3 "rings of security". Senators and Congressmen in active service were assigned a minimum of 2 guns (men) each, and, when retired were assigned one each. They carried large magazines of ammo and a minimum of 3 magazines each. So how many gun that the ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT IN CHIEF wants to outlaw, along with the magazines he wants to outlaw, does he have protecting him every day? The United States Citizens KNOW...
  • Magazine vs Clip (Video goodness for anyone confused)

    No, you are not a felon or a 2nd Class citizen if you call a "magazine" a "clip." It IS something you might as well get figured out, though, and correct if you want to have respect within the shooting community. It's just a fact, many will judge you as someone who doesn't know much about firearms if you call them "clips." I might still love you, but many won't. :-)

    Gun Rights Examiner ^ | 4 January, 2013 | David Codrea
    B. Todd Jones, the Acting Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and Cathy Lanier, Chief of the Metropolitan Police Department in Washington, D.C., are being challenged on selective enforcement of the District’s ban on so-called “large capacity ammunition feeding devices” for semi-automatic firearms. This column will serve as a follow-up to an earlier request asking who authorized violation of the ban, after NBC’s David Gregory produced a magazine during his Dec. 23 “Meet the Press” interview with National Rifle Association head Wayne LaPierre. That request was documented by Gun Rights Examiner and sent to the respective...

House Bill 1263, amended to include a ban on many commonly owned firearms passed in this committee by a 6 to 4 vote.

  • Why Does Anybody Need a 30-Round Magazine?

    American Thinker ^ | January 3, 2013 | William A. Levinson
    Senator Dianne Feinstein's latest divide-and-conquer attack on the Second Amendment has made even Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) a sucker for the argument that private citizens do not need high-capacity magazines. These include not only 30-round rifle magazines, but 17-round magazines for handguns like the Glock. Why does anybody need a high capacity magazine? If Senator Manchin were to educate himself by, for example, attending Front Sight's four-day defensive handgun class, he would learn the two primary answers: (1) Failure to stop the aggressor, and (2) Multiple aggressors Failure to Stop The classic .38 caliber revolver, with a capacity of six...
