Chuck Woolery On The Second Amendment

Chuck Woolery had a really successful dating T.V. show in the 80's called Love Connection.  I'm not entirely sure what he has been doing since then, but he is one of the few gun "celebrities" that is vocal about the Second Amendment.  Check out Chuck's latest vid:

Wow, Chuck had lots of insight in that vid.  I was at Walmart this weekend and thought I'd take a little stop over at the ammo case.  All that was left was a single box of .32 auto, one box of .30 '06, and about 15 boxes of 20 gauge and 12 gauge.  I had assumed that ammo horders were buying all the stock (which is true), but Uncle Sam is also purchasing a ridiculous amount of ammo too. The big downside is the fact that local PDs don't have the ammo to practice, and I've heard about several California based agencies that are practicing with air soft.

Chuck also brough up an interesting point about mental health, and how many people won't seek treatment in fear of losing their weapons.  It is also hard for me to picture the doctor giving you a check up and asking you about firearms ownership. 

I'm happy hear that Chuck is making his return to the spotlight and promoting the Second Amendment.  I'll leave you with this great clip from his TV show, Love Connection.

Couple Shoots Leopard In Their Backyard

In Southern California, we don't see a lot of exotic wild life.  Occasionally a bear will wander down from the foothills, and most of the cougars are confined to the bars on $2 beer nights.  A couple in Indiana was having an issues with dogs and cats being killed in their neighborhood, they did some research and thought it was most likely a bobcat.  After they busted a cap in the big cat in the middle of the night they realized it was leopard.  Check out this news story:

WDRB 41 Louisville - News, Weather, Sports Community

Lol, there is a lot going on this video... The news commentator is wearing a shirt that looks like something that would be issued to mental patients, and the guy who owns the wildlife preserve has a winning, intelligent answer that I'm surprised made it on T.V.  The strange part is that the wild life preserve owner said the leopard wasn't his, but belonged to someone else as a pet.  I can't imagine having a leopard as a pet; house cats are already such high maintenance.  I know this whole event is kinda sad, but at this point you pretty much have to take it to the taxidermy shop, right?  Btw, no word on what type of weapon was used to slay the beast.

Sons of Guns: Anti Aircraft Gun

I have mixed feelings about Sons of Guns... On the one hand it is an entertaining show that makes some pretty sweet weapons.  On the other hand it feels a little over the top with lots of false drama with a campy reality show vibe.  Nonetheless, Red Jacket Firearms does get their hands on some pretty amazing weapons, and this clip shows off an anti aircraft gun. 

Lol, that cardboard plane must have been solely filled with explosives.  Some folks on youtube were thinking it might have been fake because it the camera cut from lots of gun shots to a big explosion.  One hell of a fireball and crater though...

Slide Fire Belt Fed AR15

The majority of folks I know that own AR15's would love to have a belt fed upper.  In California, we'd only be able to have links that hold 10 rounds; above that would be considered high cap.  Despite a HUGE demand for for belt fed uppers, they are almost always something that gets teased and never comes to market. 

Back at Shot Show 2013, Slide Fire Solutions announced that they were working on a belt fed AR15.  Well, the above video has surfaced showing off the belt fed AR15 and a Slide Fire stock making a pretty bad ass, poor man's machine gun.  Because of the extensive machining required to the get the belt fed mechanism to work you need to purchase the whole rifle from Slide Fire.  The cool thing is you can remove the belt fed mechanism and it will still take standard AR magazines. 

This rifle will only set you back $5,999!  That price seems outlandish to me, but hell if it actually does come to market people will pay for it.  I don't have a lot of intel to go on about this but according to the youtube description, the belt fed AR15 should be available later this summer.  Lol, no word yet if they will have a bullet button California compliant version.  Feel free to check out Slide Fire's other expensive products on their website, although nothing about the belt fed option is on their page yet.

Crowd Funded AR15 Upper: Northwest Precision Arms

Rocket Hub is at it again with new crowd funded uppers from North West Custom Precision.  This upper is a nice pairing for that DIY, no serial number, 80% AR15 lower you may have completed.  The completed stripped lowers are made from 7075 aluminum and have a flat top picatinny rail.  Unlike completed (and more expensive uppers), you'll have to do a little gun smithing to get this baby sending lead down range.  This is totally doable, and there are lots of good tutorials on the interwebs.  You'll also need a handful of tools, most of which you or your middle aged zombie fighting buddies probably already have in the garage, and the rest you can order online.  Check out this video from ITS Tactical to give you a peak of what is require to build an upper from scratch:

At $40 this is a great deal for those looking to save some cash and have a fun weekend project.  North West Custom Precision has a real website, facebook page, and phone number to call so I'm under the assumption the deal is legit.  They are also selling some pretty affordable priced jigs too.  Here is what North West Custom Precision had to say:

About NWP- At NorthWest Precision we believe in quality parts at low prices. We strive to help those who believe in the freedoms of the United States Constitution. There are many places to find 80% lowers but finding quality, affordable upper receivers is hard to find. So at NWP we want to help fill that need and at a price everyone can afford.

Upper Details- The uppers are made from forged 7075-T6 aluminum and finished on a 5 axis CNC machine. They will have a flat top and M4 feed ramps. Forward assist and dust cover not included. Upper will be hard coat Type III anodized.

Jig Details- Also made from 7075 and hard coat anodized.

Delivery of Uppers- Delivery will begin shipping within 30-45 days from funding close. ALL orders will be fulfilled no later than 60 days from Funding close date. Our goal will be to get them to you sooner. But it is always better to under promise and over deliver. Shipping within the US is included. Excluding Hawaii and Alaska. Please email us first so we can give you actual shipping cost. Thanks


Legal Jargon- UPPER Receivers are NOT regulated by the ATF or any other agency for that matter. YOU can build a firearm without the approval of the ATF, but as I stated before UPPER RECEIVERS are NOT firearms!

Finishing- All you will need to do is install the forward assist and the ejection port cover on the AR-15 Upper to complete your upper.

What if we don't get fully funded?- NorthWest Precision will be purchasing a bulk order of forges regardless of the success of this campaign. So even if we are partially funded our customers (YOU) will receive your product on time and at the same cost as we have promised. This campaign is allowing the general public to have access to pricing that otherwise wouldn't be available. By supporting us and being part of this revolutionary movement you are helping us grow and buying a quality product at an unbelievable price. And again we thank all of you for your support in this en-devour.
