The Fight For CCWs Moves To Riverside County

Ever since the appeals court changed it's stance on how concealed carry (CCW or CHL) are issued, things have been changing pretty quickly here in CA.  For years, the majority of counties in Southern California (that's how we issues the permits here, on a county level) required some type of good cause to be deemed worthy.  Good cause is pretty tricky, because it usually requires some kind of unique extenuating circumstance such as a threat on your life or you own a business that transfers large amounts of cash or jewelry.

Things are slowly changing here and Orange County has withdrawn the "good cause" portion of the CCW saying that you can list self defense as a justifiable reason for wanting to possess a CCW.  LA County is still on a lock down for CCWs, while Ventura County is operating like OC.  Another large county down here is Riverside and the residents are fed up with the lack of CCWs.

Sheriff Sniff of Riverside County has been contact by the CalGuns Foundation who is keeping up the good fight.  Here is a bit of the CGF had to say in their post:

Currently, the sheriff only issues “CCW” licenses to those who demonstrate a “heightened” good cause, with “[c]onvincing evidence of a clear and present danger to life, or of great bodily harm to the applicant, his/her spouse, or dependent child, which cannot be adequately dealt with by existing law enforcement resources.”

Wow that sounds bad! Visit the CGF website to learn more about how you can help and how they are working to restore our 2nd Amendment rights!

Larry Vickers: Russian Weapons Tour AN-94

Larry Vickers footage from his Russian vacation continues and he gets to visit a Russian weapons manufacturer.  He shoots an AN-94 which looks it could have been a nice AK replacement, but never did/won't because that's how things work in Russia.  Check out the vid complete with massive malfunction.

Kinda cool I guess.  Larry Vickers has some cool perks, but apparently not enough to let him shoot all the state of the art Russian guns.  It looks like that AN-94 could've been something great, but Russia doesn't work the way it used to.  What do you guys think, would you take this over an AK47?

Korean Gun Range: Training Wheels

The rules at most gun ranges here in Southern California are pretty bad.  There is no drawing from a holster, no rapid fire (one second between shots), and you are typically only allowed to shoot paper targets.  To top that off, we also get the joys of overweight range masters who are on a bit of a power trip and are looking for chances to yell at the firing line.  It isn't often I cover international gun ranges in twice in one week, but I saw this Korean gun range and realized it might not be as bad as I thought here... (After you've seen about 30 seconds, you've seen all the magic; nothing exciting happens at the end of the vid except for a jamming deagle):

Lol, those Dealges look so bad ass in the movies but they jam like Smuckers in real life.  Yup, the guns at the Korean range come with training wheels in the form of a chain that extends along the lane and keeps n00bs from muzzle sweeping their neighbors.  You also get to wear a Kevlar jacket, and the doctor's mask is optional.  All in the name of safety I think...

This looks like a gamble with death...

 

I know certain countries have unique ways of training their troops, and these methods are often looked at as excessively dangerous by us first world, safety conscious nations.  Check out the crazy video from this Brazilian military range (you can fast forward about 15 seconds).

WTF... Those dudes are just walking around and don't seem to have a care in the world!  It is hard to tell with the low quality vid, but I'm willing to bet those weren't blanks and all those shots were live rounds.  That's pretty crazy stuff...

Maghack: Poor Man's High Cap Magazine

Everyone wants higher capacity magazines, and if there was only a better way to get HIGHER capacity magazines without having to drop lots of cash...  There is another way, and it is called the Maghack.  It works by taking two Magpul mags and making them one giant magazine.  All you have to do is take out the floor plates and attach them using Mag Hack's pieces.  Check out the vid and I'll complain about the product below.

Just a word to the amateur zombie hunter out there, this giant mag will be heavy, and I'm willing to bet it might be a little prone to jamming.  While this might be fun for some sweet facebook shots, I don't think I recommend using this magazine as your primary go to mag in your home protection rifle.  I think the product looks fairly durable, but I can't picture this thing taking a lot of abuse by kicking it out of your rifle is a sweet tacticool move before moving on to that next watermelon and or zombie antelope target and loading in a fresh mag.

At about $10 I'm guessing your going to get what you paid for...  While I wouldn't recommend this for anything but fun, it is kind of a cool novelty.  Learn more at maghack.com.
