As a person of Scottish heritage, I am adamant that quite a few people today do not really understand how much we gained, or how much we stood to lose, in the last election. Freedom seeking people came to America. So, it was with my hearty Scots as they fled the detested Crown. By the same token, in the South we are accepting refugees from the People’s Republics North of the Mason Dixon line. There are many freedom loving people in Connecticut, New York, and New Jersey that have seen the socialist-Marxist creep into government and make life difficult through onerous taxation, regulation, and laws, making honest business practically impossible.

Art of the Gun: The Texas Black Rifle Company Model 1836

Sometimes there are companies you really enjoy. Whether it is their product, their advertising or something else entirely, you develop an affinity for a company and so you follow and support what they do. That’s how many of us here at Cheaper Than Dirt! feel about Texas Black Rifle Company, Inc. and their sister company, Shield Tactical. Shield Tactical pole-vaulted into the limelight in 2013 when they announced they were moving out of gun-hating California to gun-friendly Texas.

SHOT 2014 — Beretta ARX-100 Sporting Rifle

At the 2014 SHOT Show Media Day, I got the opportunity to fire a few rounds through Beretta’s ARX-100, the civilian version of the ARX-160 rifle developed for the Italian military. At first glance, I thought it was just another black sporting rifle. However, in true Beretta fashion, they painstakingly included some features that I consider a requirement on modern weapons systems.
