In 2016, SB 1736/HB2033 was passed in the Tennessee legislature. The bill was an attempt to hold businesses that chose to ban defensive firearms from their premises responsible for damages. That was a step too far for the Tennessee legislature. The bill was cut back to say that businesses that did not ban firearms would be immune from lawsuit for actions that resulted from their lack of a ban.
There are times when I am amazed at how lucky I am to test and own some of the finest firearms ever manufactured. I admit that sometimes the newest variation of the theme (a different finish or new sights) isn’t quite as exciting as a fresh start, but there are few genuinely new things under the sun.
Based on the time-tested and proven reliability of the CZ-75 pistol, the IWI Jericho 941 FS handgun is sure to offer the shooter years and years of service.

In this video, American Rifleman‘s Chris Olsen walks you through the operation and servicing of this terrific pistol.

After a disappointing decision, the appellate court gave new life to the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s (NSSF) effort to block enforcement of a law that would be impossible through today’s technological standards—namely microstamping.

The topic of smart guns is always a contentious discussion that pits gun control advocates against supporters of the Second Amendment and law enforcement. Smart guns are anything but smart. Gun control advocates claim it is common sense technology and pro Second Amendment forces point out the dangers and flaws in the technology. The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) recently published an article about the operational “Baseline Specifications for Law Enforcement Service Pistols with Security Technology” that is well worth the read.
Just when you think you have seen it all, someone manages to clone a popular handgun and make it even better. The AREX Rex Zero 1 9mm is an interesting handgun that has proven reliable, accurate, and ergonomic.
In January of 2017, I will be entering my 37th year as a law enforcement officer. For 90% of those 37 years, I carried a snubnose .38 Special revolver for off-duty or backup carry while on duty.
Earlier this week, a good samaritan possessing a CWFL came to the rescue of a Lee County Florida deputy. The deputy had pulled over a suspect. Before the deputy could exit his vehicle, the suspect exited his vehicle, ran to the deputy’s car, and dragged the officer from his cruiser. The suspect then started violently attacking the officer and trying to get his gun while punching him multiple times.

I just finished reading an article about a Mexican hitman who claims to have killed over 30 people. In the article, he talked about kidnapping people, torturing, and eventually killing them—usually with a gun. While there’s no saying if this interview was legit, this quote did jump out at me: “Each kidnapping starts with locating the target. The best place is at a home, early in the morning—when everyone is asleep.”
Donald Trump won the election, which has allowed many to conclude that the Second Amendment dodged an anti-gun bullet. You may agree or disagree, but one thing is for sure, the anti gunners have not given up their agenda—in the United States and across the pond. In a recent article published by the NRA, the Journal of the American Medical Association’s (JAMA) takes aim at Florida’s Stand Your Ground law.
Despite being quite old, the scout rifle concept—originally developed by Jeff Cooper—is still very hot. Ruger’s versions are reportedly still selling well on the retail shelves and now Savage Arms has joined in with its own Model 11 Scout Rifle offering.
