New From G2 Research: .300 Ripout Expanding Cartrige

If you’re a regular reader, you may remember our 2013 Readers Choice Awards. The best ammunition prize went to .45 Colt Maximum Expansion round. As ShootingTheBull410 demonstrated, that’s one devastating handgun round. G2 Research seems to have been inspired by that design for their new nastily named .300 Ripout round, a 200 grain bullet that peels back on contact creating a wound channel that should have pigs positively panic-stricken. But there’s worse news for Porky yet; G2’s sending some of this stuff to Nick for testing. Mmmm. Bacon . . . Winder, GA, December 18, 2014-G2 Research announces a devastating new subsonic .300 AAC…

This Is What Happens to a Disarmed Populace: Belize Edition

Have you heard the ads for Belize real estate on the radio? They tout the country’s stable political system, proximity to the United State, native English language, clement weather and relatively cheap land prices. Paradise on earth? Not if you violate the country’s gun laws. Last week, a Belizean judge sent a mother and her two-month-old baby to jail after police found a single bullet in her home. How politically stable can a country be with this sort of draconian gun control regime? Stable, perhaps, but not free. As the following editorial (republished with permission) from the publisher of amadala.com.bz proves . . . Every now and then,…

“Another Example of Media Knowing Nothing About Firearms”

You might say that blogger Greg Howard at theconcourse.deadspin.com identified the guns confiscated from rapper Bobby Shmurda and submitted the following list [after the jump] as an attempt at anti-gun humor. I agree with TTAG tipster therealmattinfl that Howard doesn’t know dee eye see kay about guns. Like the majority of his colleagues in the media, he felt free to ignore his ignorance to celebrate his prejudice. Anyway, name those guns! . . . 1. Cricket 2. The one with the Terminator laser 3. That Predator-esque snubnose number 4. Old-timey revolver next to cricket 5. Old-timey revolver on bottom all alone on…

Welcome back shooters, and thank you for joining us for our second installment of Shooting in Cold Weather. In our previous piece, we looked at getting the most out of the easiest option, shooting indoors. Today let’s take a look at shooting outside and how to manage your equipment, ammo, and of course, yourself! Those of us who do not have access to indoor ranges or simply need distance to do their work will have to overcome the elements.

The Pakistan School Massacre Can Happen Here

Reader OneIfByLand writes: Is the Pakistan school massacre a warning shot across our bow? There is simply no way we have enough police to protect all of our schools for any length of time. The only practical way is to allow citizens the ability to practice their natural, civil and Constitutional rights to protect themselves and our children from such heinous crimes against humanity. Sadly, what I fear we will do is more security theatre, a (temporary) show of force to make the people feel safe (as opposed to being safe) until the shock passes . . . And then…
