Spinning wheel got to go round.*

I was surprised when one of the other BBTI guys said that he had found a reproduction wheellock on Gunbroker recently, and that it wasn’t even horribly expensive. This one: I was surprised, because there aren’t many reproduction wheellocks out there that I was aware of. It’s a quirky firearm design from the 16th century […]

The Fightin’ Swedes/Swiss.

Two last battle rifles today: the Swedish Ag m/42B in 6.5×55 and the Swiss Schmidt-Rubin Model 1911 rifle. Swedish Ag m/42B in 6.5×55 We should have done our homework on this. Why?

Two Classic Battle Rifles.

You can probably guess which ones I mean. Yeah, that’s how big of an impact they had on history. The M1903 Springfield and the Lee-Enfield (specifically, the SMLE No.1 Mk III).

Review: Diablo 12ga double barrel pistol.

Want some fun? Get an American Gun Craft 12ga double-barrel pistol. Want a serious self/home defense gun? Get something else. Oops. I gave away my review’s conclusion. But you should go ahead and read the rest of this, anyway. * * * When one of my friends sent me a link about the new American […]

The Martini-Henry .577/450

“OK, the Snider was fun. Let’s shoot that Martini-Rossi.” “Martini & Rossi is a booze brand, dumbass. The rifle is a Martini-Henry.” “Er … right.” * * * OK, I’m not saying that actually happened. But I will admit that historic rifles are not really my thing. Fortunately, my BBTI buddies are more knowledgeable. The […]

Trauma kits and summer

Summer is here, and as we start to venture forth in to the world from our various bunkers, I started to wonder about the EDC trauma kit I carry, and how it looked a bit silly with shorts: If you don't have an SFD Responder, you need one. Comfortable, durable, and...

Not So Hidden Humor in Gun Owners’ YouTube Videos by Connie Hassett-Walker

In my work on gun culture, I have systematically avoided collecting systematic data on gun culture online. True, I have spent time with and attended a seminar by YouTube star John Correia of Active Self Protection.

Soundbites make for terrible policy

I know. We live in a world of soundbites. Particularly in the political realm. From "Lock her up" to "Zero-tolerance policy" towards undocumented immigrants, sadly the first round of Democratic debates in 2019 did nothing to improve this situation. To be fair, the...

Are we about to Lose our Rights?
