“If it bleeds, it leads.” When the shooter in Parkland Florida committed his atrocity, news agencies not only covered it for days, lawmakers took part by hastily enacting poorly planned, conceived, and executed legislation. In large part, the shooter-caused carnage was laid at the feet of the school resource officer who sheltered outside instead of engaging the shooter—a fact the media covered to a lesser degree. Then, last week, there was another school shooting in Florida, but this shooting was much different.

Recently it seems the floodgates have opened. A new day means a new video where civilians and law enforcement are clashing over open carry. I have mixed feelings over these encounters. I am completely in the corner of citizens exercising their Constitutional rights to the fullest. After all, that is why they are called rights and not privileges.
What an elusive round the .357 SIG is. Hardly talked about, never fodder for forum debate and difficult to find in stock. It has devoted followers and some of our most important law enforcement agencies—such as the Secret Service—depend on the .357 SIG. In fact, falling just under the .40 S&W, it is the second most issued caliber to law enforcement agencies nationwide.
In a March 2013 poll conducted by PoliceOne.com, a majority of law-enforcement personnel said universal background checks, “assault weapons” bans, and “high capacity” magazine bans do not make police safer and will not lower violent crime. Armed citizens, on the other hand, do make a positive difference.
In a protest against new gun laws, more than 130 firearms dealers say they will stop selling guns to government and law enforcement officials in New York and other states unless those same firearms are also available to average citizens.
Olympic Arms, the AR-15 builder located in Olympia, Washington, recently released a statement about how it will deal with sales to states that are seeking to restrict 2nd Amendment rights.
The National Rifle Association has a long-standing tradition of supporting our troops, veterans and law enforcement officers. The NRA founded the NRA-LED (Law Enforcement Division) in 1960 with the goal of providing the law enforcement community with a means to certify shooting instructors.
Ok, a bit of a disclaimer. Glock unveiled its 30S today, and I was at the front of the line with every intention of putting it through its paces. However, the lovely Boulder City, Nevada treated us to 25-degree temps with 30 mph winds bringing the wind chill down to about 15°F. By the time everything was open and the line was ready to shoot, I was numb with cold and my fingers were burning at the touch. And yes, I would like some cheese with that whine.
Those who have followed my posts know I have one foot in the past and one barely in the present when it comes to firearms and cartridges. It takes a lot of evidence and time to prove something to me. Nothing like the tried, true and tested. Nevertheless, I cannot argue with the point that somethings are good right out of the box, like the Colt Python, wait there I go again. Another thing that is hard to argue with is physics. Well you can, but people will see you talking to yourself and runaway. When it comes to physics and raw proof, there are few cartridges that rival the mighty 10mm Auto.
Less flash and more substance please. Things in the firearms community have gotten way out of control. Double-barreled 1911’s, Tactical lever-action 30-30 rifles, pistols with bayonets, and internet gun snobs who hide behind usernames, where does it end?
It does not have to be flashy just dependable. It’s always there and it always works. It is like a good friend in a pinch you can count on it to be there for you. I am a traditionalist. I prefer something proven over the test of time – not the media or Internet hype. I am not a person who follows fads. That is why the next cartridge is so “Special” to me. That good friend throughout the years is the Smith and Wesson .38 Special.
