Top 5 Unfortunate Looking Guns in the World

Guns are supposed to be deadly and efficient. They are supposed to be shaped in a way that makes them easy to use – and easy to hit their target. They were made to be useful in conditions where you might not be able to defend yourself otherwise. Placing good intentions aside, some of these guns were made for the right purpose, but with the wrong design. In some cases, it might be because of the way they look; other times, it might be because of the way they function. Regardless of the end result, here are five of the most unfortunate-looking guns in the world – past or Read More >>

Duty, Mentor, Leader

Farewell and Hello!

Here at the precipice of a new year, I would like to share with you my thoughts on what I believe is most needed in this world we live in today. I believe in order to halt the cycle of unrest, division and dishonesty in our society we need men and women to take up the mantle of mentorship; become leaders and recognize it as their duty to do so. Above all the laws of nature that of duty is preeminent. It dominates over reason and self-preservation, over the subliminal and subconscience minds. When we have the feeling to stop and go no further because of injury, loss or supposed defeat, it is Read More >>

Shot Show 2019

Lynne Finch

The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) is hosting Shot Show next week in Las Vegas.  The first Shot Show was held in 1979, so this makes 40 years of fun!  Shot Show is akin to a Gun Show on steroids.  While they aren’t actually selling products on the floor there are 2,000 vendors and 60,000 attendees.  It is huge.  Attendees carefully plan what they want to see because you can’t see it all in 4 days.  Major Manufacturers showcase new products, many of which are touchable so you can see how they feel in your hands.  . You’ll find guns, knives, flashlights, Read More >>

Happy New Year!

2019 is a year for adventure and a new gun!  I’ve always said I should have a gun for every year I am old.  Not telling my age today….  So, how many guns do you have?  My favorite firearm is a handgun.  Of course, I have different handguns for different reasons.  The gun I carry, the one I believe works best for me is a Smith & Wesson, .38 – 5 shot revolver.  It’s light weight and fits in my purse, a concealed-carry purse. When competing in Cowboy Action Shooting, I have a brace of Rugers.  I use the Ruger Super Blackhawk in .44 caliber for competition.  Mine are the Read More >>

Do “Red Flag” Laws Do Anything?

The latest attempt to prevent mass murder is the adoption of “red flag” laws, whereby persons whose behavior or statements suggest that they might be a threat to others may be disarmed and prohibited from acquiring firearms.  You might think that’s logical.  Crazy people do often give plenty of warning that something running in the hamster cage isn’t a hamster at all. There are several problems with this solution: First is that mass murder is not just done with guns.  I am currently writing a history of mass murder in America.  I have identified 333 mass murders (3 or more dead Read More >>

Happy New Year!

Lynne Finch

Many of us are making New Year’s Resolutions, mine include more range time, and no falling (it was a rough year). But while I’m at it I’m looking at one of the sweet presents I got. A Gen 5 GLOCK 19! I love GLOCKs, they fit my hand perfectly. I can’t wait to take it to the range. If you got a new firearm, and haven’t yet made it to the range, do you know the two must do activities before shooting? 1, Read the Owner’s Manual. But I have lots of GLOCKS, why would I do that? I don’t know if there are any changes I’m not aware of, anything special about this one. Plus, there Read More >>
