What’s the Best Firearm for Concealed Carry?

What’s the best caliber for concealed carry according to police officers? This may be the second most common question I have received after “Have you ever had to shoot anyone?”. This is probably one of the most hotly debated questions and ranks up there with the great ongoing “Glock vs 1911” debate. While it may seem like a complicated topic, as a retired police officer I can say that my advice is always the same and it is always simple; choose the gun that you will actually carry. Selecting a duty gun and a concealed backup gun was one of the first decisions I had to make when I was hired on to the department. Since my father was a police officer, I looked to him and many of his contemporaries for advice as I began my career. Most of my professional decisions were made through that lens and choosing […]

Hand Dominance, Eye Dominance and Shooting

Since almost all firearms are made for right-handed shooters, hand doance and eye doance for anyone who is not right-handed can make things difficult. You may find yourself asking “Wait, what’s the difference, and what do I do about it?!” The concept of a doant side of the body, or bodily function, is that the human body sets an inherent preference for which side it selects for accomplishing tasks and processing information. Since shooting is an activity with a lot of hand-eye coordination, understanding which hand or which eye is doant can be essential to success on the range. Hand Doance Vs Eye Doance Hand doance is exactly what you think it is. You’re either right-handed or left-handed. It is estimated that nearly 90% of humans are right-handed which means that about 10-12% are left-handed. There is an even smaller percentage of truly ambidextrous people who […]

ATF To Launch New eForms Platform for NFA Transfers

ATF To Launch New eForms Platform for NFA Transfers U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Earlier today, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) announced the iment launch of a new electronic system for NFA transfers. Known as the eForms system, this overdue modernization will allow consumers to submit both ATF Forms 1 and 4 electronically, hopefully resulting in a significant decrease in transfer times when compared to traditional paper Forms. According to ATF, the transition to the new system will occur sometime after December 15th, but before Christmas. The new eForms system will handle all existing NFA transfer forms, including the ATF Form 4. If you recently submitted an NFA application, keep it in the queue. We cannot stress this enough. Withdrawing your Form 4 and re-submitting electronically will take longer than allowing your Form 4 to make its way through the approval process. That’s because ATF isn’t going to dig through […]

What Will A Post-2022 Congress Be Able To Do?

An I Voted sticker on an IWI X95 bullpup carbine in 5.56mm with an Elcan SpectreDR 1.5-6x optic on top. IMG Jim Grant United States -(AmmoLand.com)- One thing Second Amendment supporters need to have in d is what they should push for after the 2022 elections. Now, there is a lot of time between now and 2022, but based on what happened in Virginia and some other trends, it is shaping up to go very nicely for those who support the Second Amendment. But what is to be done with what could be a pro-Second Amendment majority in the House and Senate? While Joe Biden will still have a veto pen, it doesn’t mean that Second Amendment supporters will be without options. One could say that there is a Second Amendment supportive majority in the United States, given that all 50 Republicans and Joe Manchin, Angus King, and Jon Tester […]

Regional Gunmaker’s Match a Success in Massachusetts ~ VIDEOS

Opinion 3D Printed Gun Frames Massachusetts -(AmmoLand.com)- When people were looking to arm themselves in the early days of firearms, they might be seeking particular parts, or the full gambit of lock, stock, and barrel. The tradition of individuals building their own firearms in the United States goes back to before our founding. Running down to the sporting goods store or gun shop was not what it’s like today. Getting a firearm could have been a real ordeal and depending on one’s economic status, also depended on what level of home manufacture one would engage in. There was, and still is, nothing nefarious about an individual getting just the lock for a prospective firearm and then building the rest. Due to technological advances, the realm of homemade firearms has expanded in exciting and interesting ways. Once veiled in smoky mystery, perhaps even looked upon in a negative manner, the […]

Are Biden & Whitmer Responsible for the Oxford Killings? ~ VIDEO

Dan Wos, Author of Good Gun Bad Guy Host of The Loaded Mic USA -(AmmoLand.com)- The 1990 Gun Free School Zones Act, sponsored by Joe Biden as part of the 1990 Crime Control Act is getting people killed and anti-gun politicians refuse to address it. Every time we hear of another school killing acted out with a gun, we are trained by the media to believe the problem is guns. Main-Stream and Left-Wing want you to believe that with more gun restrictions these things wouldn’t happen. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Quite the contrary; it’s because of gun restrictions these things occur. The latest school killing occurred at Oxford High School in Oakland County Michigan. The deadly rampage was acted out by a 15-year-old named Ethan Crumbley. Crumbley killed four students and injured seven others when he opened fire at the School, just north of Detroit […]

Tyranny, Fundamental Rights, & The Armed Citizen vs Marxists’ Desire to Destroy

Opinion Armed Self-Defense As A Basic Human Right Untangling the Gun Lobby’s Web of Self-Defense and Human Rights New York -(AmmoLand.com)- Is armed self-defense a basic human right? That is the crux of an ongoing debate for many people in the United States. It shouldn’t be but it is. The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution makes clear that armed self-defense is a fundamental human right. If anyone harbors doubt about that, the United States Supreme Court settled the question in 2008, in the seal Second Amendment case, Heller vs. District of Columbia. The late eent Associate Justice, Antonin Scalia, writing for the majority, opined “the inherent right of self-defense has been central to the Second Amendment right.” This means armed self-defense is not to be perceived as a thing apart from the broader notion of self-defense, but, rather, is subsumed in it. The sole issue in Heller was “whether a District of Columbia prohibition on […]

NJ Gov. Murphy Pushing More Gun Control in “Lame Duck” Session

NJ Governor Murphy is pushing even more gun control during his final moments in office. IMG NRA-ILA U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Gov. Phil Murphy was joined this morning by Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin to announce yet another assault on New Jersey gun owners. Having barely survived in deep Blue New Jersey, the Governor is reverting back to an old playbook to divert attention from the real issues that have voters in the Garden State so angry in the first place. Rather than tackle real problems like that state’s highest-in-the-country property taxes, Murphy is looking to change the subject. This morning’s media spectacle was simply a ret of an event he held last spring. The state’s two most powerful gun-grabbers broadly defined their package of bills which includes: Banning .50 Caliber Firearms (S.103/A.1280). Gun registration for residents moving into New Jersey (A.3686/S.372) Ammunition Registration (A.1292/S.1481) Microstamping (S.112/A.1098) Other issues were discussed and included regulating school shooting drills, gun manufacturer […]
