CGF Seeks Review by Full 9th Circuit Court in Waiting Period Case

It sounds like the punchline to bad joke, “So, a guy is concealed carrying a handgun while filling out paperwork to buy another handgun, but he is in California, so he has to wait 10 days to pick it up—to give him time to “cool off” (guard against impulsive acts of violence). Unfortunately, that is not a joke. It is the logic of the gun control crowd… and a recent court ruling.

Several AR-15 laying on a bed of rocks

February 23 — 10 Top .223 Remington Posts!

February 23 is .223 day! Who doesn’t love a day honoring one of America’s favorite calibers most often fired from the AR-15—one of America’s favorite rifles? In truth, we do not have to wait for 2/23, we can celebrate it any day of the year by emptying a few magazines by sending rounds down range. However, in honor of .223 day we first want to thank our men and women in uniform serving our country, veterans, first responders, and law enforcement officers who run toward danger when we get run from it. With that done, we hope you will enjoy a little down time with a few of our favorite .223-themed posts from the past.

Walther PPS M2 pistol with boxes of Hornady Critical Defense and Civil Defense ammunition

Review: Walther PPS M2 9mm Pistol

Walther has retained the long history of innovation while ushering in a completely new era of firearms. Sure, it still faithfully produces those great symbols of Bond 007 spycraft and have even expanded that line with new entries, but the new Walther pistol designs have rightly captured a lot of attention.
