    Palmetto State Armory gives us Another one for the Wish List With all the rage going on about AR pistol, Palmetto State Armory came out with a very cool AK. Its not just an AK but an AK pistol that shoots a 9mm. Palmetto put quality first when they worked on this piece. You can run it suppressed, un-suppressed, full metal jacket, hollow points whatever and it works. Palmetto did some modifications on the PSA-AKV pistol such as extended finger latch for the safety, 35 rounds Scorpion style magazines style, bolt catch and release on the side. The pistol also...

    Do you want to be good with a pistol? And, we're not talking about just standing in front of a paper target shooting at your leisure. You want to be able to defend yourself and loved ones. What do you do? There are many shooting drills out there for every skill level, but as with any hobby or skill, the basics are the most important. Without basic proficiency, one cannot become competent, let alone get actually good.. Getting good means you'll need to attend all of these top of the line defensive firearms courses offered at Joe's Tactical School. Reality...

    A sniper that shoots an exploding bullet, sounds far fetched out of a James Bond movie. Exploding rounds have been around since World War II. The Germans made an 8mm rifle ammunition which exploded upon impact. Though the round was banned by the Hague Convention this didn’t stop the usage of it. During World War II both Russia and Germany were firing exploding bullets from sniper rifles. These vicious projectiles were used horrifically on human targets during the war. Originally these exploding rounds concepts were used for sabotage operations which were left behind for enemy forces, generally insurgents, to find...

    The School Dedicated To Longrifle Building Knowledge is a fleeting thing if steps aren’t taken to preserve it. Whether it’s building the pyramids or a family recipe, if knowledge isn’t passed on to subsequent generations, it is eventually forgotten and lost. Thirty-four years ago, the passionate desire to preserve the 18th century gun-making techniques, by which American longrifles were handcrafted, led to the creation of an extraordinary training seminar by Professor Terry Leeper, Ph.D., of Western Kentucky University (WKU) and master gunmakers Wallace Gusler and Jon Bivins. Three years later the National Muzzle Loading Rifle Association (NMLRA) began cosponsoring the...

    The Pistola Con Caricato Revolver A break-action weapon, the Pistola con Caricato features three barrels, complimented by a very high capacity 18-shot cylinder, which is reloaded via two-piece moon clip-type loading devices. They sandwich the 18 rounds between a holding plate and a firing access plate, through which the firing pins strike the cartridges. The weapon has five operational settings, and the selector allows the shooter to choose which firing pin and barrel would be used to fire the gun. It also has the option to fire from all three barrels at once with one pull of the trigger....

    Ever wondered what it feels like to get shot? People in the military and others who were unfortunate to experience this ordeal have describe their personal experiences of what it feels like when a bullet hits them, and how they ultimately survived. They know what it's like to get shot, and the incredible amount of physical and emotional pain that accompanies a bullet wound. They unfortunately found themselves at the wrong end of a gun, and not only survived their brush with death, but were fortunate enough to tell others about their experience. Based on these accounts, people have different...

    The Godfather of Gun Training I have never taken a class at the Gunsite Academy and I don't claim to know Jeff Cooper. I do know that he saved my life, and if you carry a gun for a living, at some point he is going to save yours too. In order to digest this sweeping statement you have to understand how things were before Lieutenant Colonel Jeff Cooper, USMC (retired/deceased), developed the "modern techniques" of small arms training. I'M A HISTORY BUFF with a near-encyclopedic knowledge of the Vietnam War. I’ve studied thousands of photographs from that conflict; my...

    Uberti's version of Colt's percussion .31-caliber Model 1849 a 'dandy little gun.' Looking back along the line of the original Colts, the Model 1849 Pocket Revolvers have quite a history. Sam Colt had produced some very historic revolvers beginning in 1836. The Colt Patterson revolver was a five shot with the folding trigger and a pair of those are said to have been carried by Kit Carson, probably after 1840. Next came the Colt Walker revolver, which was quite an improvement but that big .44 is huge. The Walker was followed by the Colt Dragoon series, also .44s but with...

    The story and origin of the bugle call known as "Taps" can be found in many versions, including the legend of a son fighting on the opposing side of the Civil War from his father. This legend depicts a Northern boy who was killed fighting for the Confederates. His father, Robert Ellicombe, a captain in the Union Army, came upon his son’s body and found the notes to “Taps” in the pocket of the dead boy’s uniform. When Union General Daniel Sickles heard the story, he had the notes played at the boy’s funeral. While this very short version of...

    No phony 'gun bunny,' this former Army MP who served in Afghanistan enjoys long-range shooting and is an Instagram-era Second Amendment, concealed carry and female empowerment influencer. The increasing number of women taking up shooting for self-defense and recreational purposes is shifting the demographics of the shooting sports community in huge and very positive ways. Shooting was never purely a man's pursuit, but social mores prevalent in my generation made women on the range a rarity. Back in the Reagan era, if you saw a female on the range, she was almost certainly there with her boyfriend or husband, "trying...

    When a Canadian family noticed a group of bears on their property, the father attempted to scare them off by firing a warning shot into the air. Unfortunately, this provoked the mother bear, who charged. Amazingly, the man was able to fire off his last shot, momentarily knocking the beast off her feet and giving him enough time to make it back to safety. He later tracked the bear family, and believes while the mama bear is sore, she’s okay. See the footage of bear attacks.

    What is The Pocket Shot? Well, it is what I call a modern-day sling shot, but a little cooler, has an interesting design and is quite portable – but make no mistake, this is not a toy! Let's get the statistics out of the way first: The Pocket Shot is a closed pouch made of latex with a base and locking ring that compresses the latex ends. This design allows for a solid grip on the front end and a clear line of projection for your ammunition – in this case a steel slug. Pocket Shot claims that it has...

    Tell us if you've done this, come on fess up, you have at least one NERF gun in your home or office and have done the following when no one is watching: 'sliced the pie', hostage shots, body armor drills, quick-draw Doc Holliday trigger guard spins, open shirtless apex carry, look in the mirror and say 'you looking at me?', double tap on swimsuit model posters and long range "sniping". If you've done any of this you're a John Wick fan. Youtuber Corridor Digital did a three minutes of awesomeness a while back, substituting NERF guns for the real deal,...

    I predicted Trump’s eventual war with the Fed over a year ago, and I have written on the dangers if such a war recently, so I will not go into as much detail on this event. I will say that like the immigrant caravan, this is another issue in which conservatives could be tricked into reacting without thinking of the long game. In my article ‘The Economic End Game Explained‘, I outline the strategy being used by globalists to diminish the U.S. economy as a means to open the door to mass support for a global monetary system controlled by...

    Match bullets have long been the best friend of the target shooter, but that relationship has been taken even further in the last decade with the rising popularity of long-range shooting. Where once the simple consistency of a match bullet was enough to give the characteristics a competition shooter desired, taking things well out past 1,000 yards has changed the requirements. Whereas many shooters had no idea what Ballistic Coefficient was, or couldn't explain the difference between a tangent or secant ogive, modern long-range shooters are better educated than ever. Yes, many of our most popular match bullets are still...

    Small hideout guns tend to be small caliber and that means ineffectual stoppers. The current crop of ultra-light polymer-framed .32s and .380s with double action only trigger mechanisms are also very hard to hit anything with. There is a more effective alternative available. American Derringer has beefed up the traditional Remington Double Derringer to .45 Colt caliber and it also will chamber the 2˝-inch .410 shotgun shells. The .45 Colt is a one-shot stopper with a hit to the vitals, and you have two shots. It is a close range weapon, but then most gunfights are also close range and...

    Why You Should Try the .300 Winchester Magnum If you go through a dedicated hunter’s gun safe, you’re probably going to find at least one gun chambered for the .300 Win Mag cartridge. There are a lot of good reasons for that, and it really is one of the cartridges that every shooter should consider adding to their armory. It is one of the most popular options in spite of the huge variety of cartridges that hunters can choose from because it offers great ballistic characteristics for a huge variety of purposes. It is vital that you understand the cartridge...

Buzzfeed tried their hands on gun shooting, they did ok (you can read about it below). Fast Forward to Now The Firearm Blog had heard what the Buzzfeed guys did so TFB decides, why not us?, But the differences is that TFB also wanted to create some shooting tips segments from Da Man himself "Taran Butler". So TFB flew down to L.A. to meet with Taran Butler...
