My New Book: California's Gun Problem

Hey guys,

I wanted to start by saying thanks.  So many of you come and visit this site everyday and it means the world to me.  I had been thinking about what to write for my second book for sometime (you can pick up a copy of my first book here) now and it seemed quite clear that I needed to write a book for all of you.

It is called California's Gun Problem and I think you guys will really like it.  It is an easy read that is written in the same snarky style that you've grown to love on this blog.  This book focuses mainly on CA, but know that a lot of the gun laws we have here are merely being tested by lib politics to be used on the rest of the country. 

I also have another book on the way called The Secret Liberal Playbook, which I hope will be out by the end of the month.  That book will look at firearms on a national level and many of the tricks played by politicians to get folks to trade their freedoms for a little bit of perceived safety.

Do me a favor and pick up a copy of the book here.  Also, if you'd be so kind as to post it on your favorite social media channels I would greatly appreciate it.  Thanks again for visiting the site.


FPS Russia & The Modern Day BAR

If I were to make a list of cool guns that don't have a lot of practical usage, I'd put the Ohio Ordinance HCAR at the top of the list.  I've actually talked about this gun before, and it is basically a BAR that has been modernized with all sorts of things that make it look cool and have less recoil.  FPS Russia got his hands on one of these, and it looks like he had a ton of fun:

I'm jealous.  The HCAR can be yours for the low, low price of $4700.  It comes with a few goodies (see pic above) and can't be shipped to CA, NY, CT, MD, NJ, & Chicago.  Visit Ohio Ordiance Works for more info.



The Ares Armor Muzzle Break That Will Be Mistaken For Silencer

Muzzle breaks are all the rage right now.  They have the potential to reduce recoil, shoot flames, or even give your gun the right amount of barrel length (a little welding may be required for that last one).  Ares Armor has a new product in this arena called the "Ares Breath" Muzzle Brake for 5.56 rifles.

When I first saw the photos I had to ask my self what the hell this thing was...  It looks like a a stack of muzzle brakes, and not a single unit.  Here is what Ares had to say:

How is this Device different from others that have been determined by ATF to be "Silencers"?
a. This device is intended to be used in compliance with Federal and State law. You may pin and weld this device to a 10.5" barrel to make your barrel a legal rifle length barrel or mount it without welding onto a 16” or longer barrel.
b. This device is designed and intended to reduce felt recoil and muzzle climb.
c. This device is intended to be aesthetically AWESOME!
d. This device does not have threading on the forward portion of it, and is not intended to be used as part of an assembly of a silencer, suppressor or muffler.
e. This device does not diminish the sound of the firearm.
f. In an abundance of caution we have added anti-tamper features to restrict the ability of one to misuse this product.

g. Misuse of this product voids the product warranty.

The Ares Breath is 6" long and $150.  I don't really think this accessory is going to be on my Christmas list this year.  Is this something you would put on your rifle?  Head over to Ares Armor for more info and pictures.


A Guess At What It Feels Like To Be Shot While Wearing A Vest

I've seen a lot of those bullet proof vest testing vids, and it seems like guy catching lead hardly flinches.  Did you ever wonder how much force was actually being driven into the vest?  In this not so scientific test several different calibers are fired at a vest placed on big water bottle.  The results are then compared to blunt objects to see the difference; check it out:

Interesting stuff...  It sounds like anyway you slice it will hurt like hell, and probably leave a huge bruise.  I had not heard of Bullet Safe before but it actually looks like they provide a pretty reasonable option for affordable vests.  They keep their prices low by only offering one style and they do have some upgrades for plates that will take your vest up to Level IV.  This sounds like it might be a viable alternative to AR500.

Intentional M1 Garand Thumb: This Looks Painful

The M1 Garand is a pretty sweet rifle that not only "won the war" but is also available at a pretty reasonable price.  The Garand doesn't take magazines like your fancy AR, it actually takes "clips" like the people on television might say.  Inserting these clips is fairly similar to a magazine except that if you aren't paying attention, the action can close on your thumb. 

The Firearms Blog put together a pretty interesting post showing someone who willfully gave themselves the "M1 Thumb" for the sake of science or something.  Check out these clips below:

Yea that looks like it really hurt.  Have you ever experienced M1 Thumb?  Head over to TFB to see a few more animated gifs.
