Stop the rumor mill and start the presses. Whether due to poor OPSEC or great marketing, the word has been leaking out for a few weeks that Glock will introduce a new .380 ACP version of its ultra popular pistols dubbed the Glock 42. The Shooting Hunting Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show begins January 15th and is the traditional launch point. That being the case, Media Day runs on the 14th and Cheaper Than Dirt! will have its cameras rolling with the first range reviews of the Glock 42 and other popular models.
The gun world is far from national security; wait… The NSA has not been keeping its secrets all that well lately either. Several new models will be released in the next couple of weeks, but here is the first one to pique our interest here at Cheaper Than Dirt!
We, the citizens, will not trust or support any politician or political appointee that does not trust us.
Christmas is a day of celebration and commemoration of the birth of Jesus Christ. It signals a day of family, giving, holiday merriment and festive feasts. Cheaper Than Dirt! would like to take this opportunity to offer its own thanks to all the wonderful customers it has had the pleasure to serve in 2013 and looks forward to a continued relationship in 2014.
On the tenth day of Christmas, my true love gave our family a safe effective high energy transfer round that is great for hunting, home defense or target shooting.
On the seventh day of Christmas, my true love gave my hungry SKS just what it always asks for—more 7.62x39mm 122-Grain FMJ ammunition from the Ulyanovsk Cartridge works in Russia, because nothing says Christmas and love like Berdan primed!
The lead smelting plant, Doe Run, in Herculaneum, Missouri, will cease operations in the next couple of weeks.
On the sixth day of Christmas, my true love that knows me so well stuffed my stocking with boxes of Federal Power-Shok. Nine pellets of #00 buckshot (approximately .33 caliber) will certainly get the job done—if it hits the intended target.

Fifty years ago today, the United States suffered the loss the 35th U.S. President, John F. Kennedy. Since that time, the event has been the subject of thousands of movies, books, documents and articles. Major events often spawn conspiracy theories and Kennedy’s assassination is no exception; in fact, it could be reasonably argued that it is the king of all conspiracy theories.
Chalk one up for the Second Amendment and pass the ammo! It’s time to celebrate. Well, that may be a bit of an overstatement, but the pro Second Amendment supporters can claim another victory.
For many of us, a new set of brakes is an untimely, yet manageable, expense. Hospital bills are few and far between, and a satisfying meal is just another commodity we take for granted. However, for the millions of families with special needs children, allocating money for these necessities and a few luxuries is not always an option.
I know, I hate the holiday gift lists that come out too early too. However, preppers by their very nature get things done early. So, I decided to put together my own spin on a holiday shopping list for your favorite prepper. In doing so, I left off many of the obvious choices that preppers, hikers, hunters and general outdoors people already own or make such as batteries, compasses and fire starters.
So what do you get that prepper on your gift list that they might not already have?
The Eleventh Hour of the Eleventh Day of the Eleventh Month–that was when the armistice ending the hostilities of World War I was signed. Although the Treaty of Versailles would not be signed for many more months, we still recognize 11/11 as the day to honor all those served before WWI, during WWI and although it was believed to be the war end all wars, those who would later serve.
The headline could read: “Last U.S. Lead Smelter Closes Due to Obama and EPA Regulations.”
Firearm enthusiasts suddenly understood the U.S. Army’s new found obsession with lead-free ammunition and blogs published everywhere proselytizing the link between the shutdown and gun control.
In terms of American military long arms, very little attention is given to a predecessor of the much-heralded M1903 and M1 Garand, the Springfield Trapdoor. Produced for over 20 years, the Springfield Trapdoor experienced many changes throughout its life. The rifle would take its place in history just after the Civil War—despite the justifiable hesitation of many military personnel who were all too aware of the superiority of repeaters and magazine fed rifles.
