Zane Grey and the Winchester 1895

Zane Grey remains perhaps the greatest storyteller of the American West. An adventurer, hunter, and avid outdoorsman, Zane Grey stands as one of the rare few authors who lived a life to rival his works, and it’s only fitting that such a heralded name in the genre of Western literature would own one of the most incredible Winchester rifles in the collecting pursuit.

The SPAS 12 Shotgun

Whether you know the SPAS 12 from Terator, Jurassic Park, or the shotgun’s inclusion in countless video games over the last two decades, the Franchi SPAS 12 has become one of the world’s most famous gun models. Primarily designed as a close combat weapon for military and law enforcement use, the SPAS 12 shotgun’s large heat shield, metallic folding stock, and distinctive butt hook give the gun a unique profile that stands out in any firearms collection. A SPAS 12 for sale that features the iconic hooked folding stock. The Franchi SPAS 12 Shotgun The SPAS 12 was manufactured in 1979 by the Italian company Luigi Franchi S.p.A. as a special-purpose automatic shotgun. Franchi’s SPAS 12 design was inspired in part by the High Standard Model 10, an American-made 12 gauge semi-auto bullpup shotgun developed in the late 1950s to be either shoulder-fired or fired one-handed with the swiveling buttstock […]

How Do Suppressors Work?

How Do Suppressors Work? Home March 23, 2023 David Higginbotham There’s something almost magical about a well-suppressed gun shot. The experience, for those used to the guns producing loud cracks and booms, can be sublime. The simple addition of a metal tube on the end of the barrel can make gun shots hearing safe, but how do suppressors work? It’s easy to understand why you would want a silencer. Understanding how they work requires a bit of science. The answers, as there a many factors at work here, are not overly complicated. But before we start, let’s break down what’s causing the noise. Why are unsuppressed guns so loud? When the pin hits the shell, a bit of controlled chaos ensues. The primer kicks off the ignition of the powder. When the powder ignites, the rapid burn creates expanding gasses that need somewhere to go. This small explosion is contained […]

OH: Take Action to Support OH HB 51!

); The federal government has and will continue to come after your right of self-defense. It’s time for states to take a stand against federal tyranny. With Biden’s ATF announcing a new rule that requires owners of pistol-braced firearms to add themselves to a federal gun registry or risk becog a felon, it is well past time for individual states to pass legislation fighting back. That’s where OH HB 51 comes in. The “Second Amendment Preservation Act” (SAPA) prohibits state officials or law enforcement from enforcing federal gun control and provides punishments for those that do. This bill would make Ohio a Second Amendment sanctuary state, which provides […]

MN: Omnibus Gun Control Bill Being Heard on Friday!

); The anti-gun Democrats in the Minnesota Senate have two hearings planned this week to debate further infringements upon your Second Amendment rights! This Friday, there will be a hearing on SF 2909, which is a massive omnibus bill with tons of gun control hidden inside. This bill contains Universal Background Checks, Red Flag Gun Confiscation Orders, magazine capacity limits, restricting long-gun purchases from people aged 18-20, and more! Not only are they debating that, but there is also another gun control hearing scheduled for this Thursday, where they are debating similar legislation. With the anti-gun Democrats in control of the State House, Senate, and Governor’s office, there […]

WA: HB 1240 Assault Weapons Ban Public Hearing on March 23rd!

Washington Patriots: now is the time to put your voice to work for your Right to Bear Arms! HB 1240, a bill that attacks the very existence of each law-abiding citizen in Washington and bans over 65+ commonly owned rifles, has passed the House and moved to the Senate. The Senate has scheduled HB 1240 for a public hearing in the Committee on Law & Justice at 8:00 AM on March 23rd, at 416 Sid Snyder Ave SW, Olympia, WA 98501-1347. The anti-gun left will stop at nothing, and HB 1240 is one of their biggest attacks on your Second Amendment rights. We must show up in vast numbers and tell this Senate Committee that HB 1240 should be opposed. We know that Governor Jay Inslee will sign gun control at the stroke of the pen, so we need to go to the hearing and let our voices be heard […]

Golden Luger between Two Nazi Diplomats

The media was far from kind in reporting on the arrests of two top German World War 2 diplomats, understandably contemptuous and insulting toward the men who would both be tried for war crimes. Franz von Papen, who served as chancellor of Germany but stepped aside to allow Adolf Hitler to ascend to the same position in 1933 then served as ambassador to Austria and Turkey, was described as “the man who maneuvered Adolf Hitler to power” and “not a Nazi but an aristocrat with no use for democracy.” He received a gold-plated Mauser P.08 Luger from German Foreign Minister Joachim von Ribbentrop. Von Ribbentrop, who served as Germany’s ambassador to England and foreign ister leading up to World War 2 negotiated the non-aggression pact with the Soviet Union that allowed for the invasion of Poland, pacts that aligned Germany with Japan and Italy, and oversaw annexation of several territories.

He has been with SilencerCo for a few years and has spent time around the country on our Sales team helping connect dealers and customers to the world of suppressors. Why purchase a Suppressor? There are a few major benefits to owning suppressors: They reduce the sound of gun fire to help protect your hearing. Suppressors also serve as a natural muzzle break and flash hider, so that you experience better accuracy and control over your firearm by reducing recoil, while also not blinding you in low light environments with flash. All of this has the added benefit of reducing concussion. Which is the total impact on your body. A lot of people don’t realize that even when wearing ear protection, firing a gun reverberates through your body violently, which can still […]

WY: Wyoming Impacts from Court Ruling About the Missouri Second Amendment Protection Act

No Significant Wyog Impacts from Court Ruling About the Missouri Second Amendment Protection Act YET! Many of our members and supporters are aware of a court ruling last week in Missouri regarding the state’s Second Amendment Protection Act (SAPA) and wonder if it impacts Wyog. On March 7, U.S. District Judge Brian Wimes in Jefferson City, Missouri, said the state’s SAPA violates the U.S. Constitution’s Supremacy Clause, which holds that federal laws take priority over conflicting state laws. The ruling addressed a measure Missouri’s Republican Governor Mike Parson signed into law in 2021 that declared that certain federal gun laws infringed on the rights of individuals to keep and bear arms under the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment. Second Amendment supporters should be encouraged that the Missouri ruling has no direct impact on Wyog’s SAPA which was signed into law in March 2022. The following is a list of reasons why […]

TN: Real Constitutional Carry Faces Next Challenge

Call these 6 Senators to Support SB 1503 Please call the 6 Senators (numbers below) and urge them to support SB 1503. Dear friend, SB 1503 faces its next challenge in the Senate Judiciary. This bill is the companion of HB 1005, which improves Tennessee’s weak Constitutional Carry law. However, these six senators need to hear from gun owners that this bill should pass. Sadly, there’s no guarantee that this pro-gun bill will pass out of this Republican-led committee. Your calls could be the difference in passing this legislation, so please don’t delay. Please urge the committee members to pass SB 1503.

KY: The Bluegrass State Is Close to Becoming a 2A Sanctuary

Tell Gov. Beshear to Let HB 153 Become Law Call. Gov. Beshear at (502) 564-2611 and urge him to let HB 153 become law, even without his name. Dear friend, The Bluegrass State is on the verge of becog a Sanctuary for your right to keep and bear arms. HB 153 has passed through the legislature, and it is now on the governor’s desk. In short, this bill would prohibit any Kentucky law enforcement from enforcing any federal gun bans or regulations on firearms. Gun owners know that the anti-gun Gov. Andy Beshear will not sign this pro-gun bill. In fact, he will most likely veto this bill. But due to the Republican supermajorities in the legislature, a veto override is practically inevitable. Gov. Beshear could save himself the political embarrassment by letting the bill become law without his name. (This is otherwise known as a “pocket veto.”) So please […]

EXCLUSIVE: GOA Exposes ATF for Using Financial Info to Block Gun Purchases

The federal government has been using Americans’ income and gun purchases to conduct warrantless tracking and deny Second Amendment rights. Agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) gave salary estimates to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) as the reason to have people’s firearms purchases monitored. Erich Pratt, senior vice president of Gun Owners of America (GOA), told The Epoch Times that the ATF’s activities “monitoring innocent people” is a serious problem. “Congress needs to rein in this rogue agency by either exercising oversight over it or abolishing the unconstitutional agency altogether,” said Pratt. These revelations come from new documents, viewed by The Epoch Times which it received from its Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit. The latest production from the FOIA has hundreds of pages—many redacted—showing ATF agents requesting warrantless surveillance by the FBI for lawful reasons such as low salaries, past firearm purchases, and […]

Gov Cooper should end duplicative and historically racist gun policies

One of the most discriatory laws on North Carolina’s books is the pistol purchase permit system, which was first implemented in 1919. North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper To summarize, before purchasing a handgun in the Tar Heel state, one must first obtain permission from the local sheriff in the form of a pistol purchase permit. Frustratingly, the many who don’t go through this process fail to realize this requirement is entirely redundant and prone to abuse, which is supported by both historical evidence and modern examples. Many who oppose the repeal of this permit program no doubt fail to recognize that the background check performed by state sheriffs is completely duplicative, a pro-forma exercise. Even after someone acquires a pistol purchase permit, gun dealers can still perform a background check every single time a transaction is initiated. Even more damning, the current permitting law was contrived during one of the […]

Erich Pratt to Newsmax: Blame Dem Cities for Crime, Not Guns

Democrat-controlled cities are to blame for the violence in America today, not the increase in guns, Erich Pratt, senior vice president for Gun Owners of America, told Newsmax on Tuesday. Speaking with “Rob Schmitt Tonight” and reacting to former “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart’s comment about the increase in gun circulation being attributable to the increase in “gun deaths,” Pratt said if he were there, he would have told Stewart that “while we had an increase in … gun ownership … I would have pointed out was at the same time we also had a 40% decrease drop in the murder rate. So literally, we had more guns, less crime.” “The real problem,” Pratt explained, “is that anti-gun Democrats keep throwing crials back out on the street. “I mean, it’s the Democrat-controlled cities that are setting homicide records. And you know the story … that’s because they’re eliating bail,” Pratt continued. “They’re […]

WY, MT, ID: Hageman Introduces Bill to Return Grizzly Bear Management to the States

Bill to Return Grizzly Bear Management to the States Introduced by Wyog Congresswoman Hageman Hunters in Wyog, Montana, and Idaho could have opportunities to hunt grizzlies like this hunter in Alaska if Hageman’s Bill passes. Hunters will replace government-funded “shooters” and maintain a balanced grizzly population for generations! New legislation from Congresswoman Harriet Hageman (R-Wyog) would direct the U.S. Secretary of the Interior to remove the Yellowstone Region’s grizzly bears from the federal endangered species list (ESL). This would return management to the states and allow regulated hunting, a concept supported by the Governors of Wyog, Montana, and Idaho. Last year, with full GOA support, the three Governors asked the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) to remove the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem (GYE) population of grizzly bears from the ESL. As our members and supporters probably know, many opponents to “Delisting” are the same people who want to restrict your right […]

GOA Reacts to Biden’s Executive Order on Universal Background Checks

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE March 14, 2023 Washington, D.C. Today, Gun Owners of America (GOA) issued a strong rebuke of President Biden’s speech in Monterey Park, CA, where he signed an executive order to further his goal of requiring Universal Background Registration Checks on gun purchases. This action is a direct result of the Cornyn-Murphy gun control ‘compromise’ that passed last year, which GOA repeatedly warned was a complete overreach and merely a stepping stone for further anti-gun actions in the future. Erich Pratt, GOA’s Senior Vice President, issued the following statement: “The current background check system is ineffective and 9 out of 10 times falsely flags someone as ineligible to purchase. Instead of expanding the requirements to harass people who sell as few as just one firearm in a given year, this adistration should be focusing their attention on keeping bad actors locked away, like the D.C. police chief […]
