January 5th 2016 - A 65 Year old woman who was ambushed while heading home is safe today, crediting her firearm for saving her life.
The woman, who is 4-foot-11 and 105 pounds, said she had stopped at Mobil on the Run, 1050 S. Willow St., at about 11:30 p.m., after leaving work. She told police she was on South Willow Street at a stoplight when she noticed a dark colored sedan behind her. She said it caused her heightened concern when it followed her into her apartment complex parking lot, so she parked as close to her building as possible.
This is another great example of how firearms protect law abiding citizen from criminals.
Congressman David Schweikert (R - Ariz.) introduced legislation that, if passed, will require Washington D.C., to recognize and honor concealed carry permits from all 50 states.
The D.C. Personal Protection Reciprocity Act will do three main things:
1) require D.C. to recognize out of state concealed carry permits
2) require D.C. to approve concealed carry applications of recently relocated individuals who lawfully hold concealed carry permits in the states where they moved from
3) require the D.C. chief of Police to enter into reciprocity agreements with all states
The legislation currently has more than 30 co-sponsors and the list is growing. Schweikert says this legislation has been in the works for six months and is not a response to President Obama's executive actions on gun control earlier this week.
Here is the text of the bill:
I often get the question, "how many rounds shoot I be shooting a month to be proficient?" In a prefect world, I would love to shoot about 10,000 rounds/month, my reality is closer to 1000 rounds/month. I know for many of my students 100 rounds/month is the limit.
Luckily you can take a tip from the pros and make huge improvements from dry firing. Many professional shooters will freely admit that they dry fire at a 3:1 or higher ratio to live fire.
Before we go any further, let's take a step back and define what dry fire is.
“Dry firing” is the practice of using your firearm like you are shooting it, but the firearm is empty. If you follow a few simple steps, it is safe, and does no harm to your pistol, and is very effective at increasing your shooting ability.
It’s free, you can do it at home, you can see how you are doing because there is no noise or recoil to hide your mistakes, and you don’t have the cost of ammo or range fees!
Many old timers will tell you that dry firing is not safe for your pistol, they say it will damage it and cause premature wear. While this was true 50 years ago, it is not true of modern firearms. I regularly dry fire pistols in excess of 100,000 times per year and have never had a failure or parts breakage caused by dry fire. One caveat is that .22 and other rimfire pistols should not be dry fired, as the firing pin can hit the edge of the chamber, and repeated strikes can cause deformation or damage.
Over the coming weeks we will be doing a full review of this innovative holster.
Here is a sneak peak at what you can expect:

Here are a few pics to keep you drooling!
Whether as a pistol, a pistol with a Sig Brace ir an SBR, this is a bad ass little gun! The best part is that it is going to have a very affordable price, CZ is saying $849 MSRP that will put the street price $100-$200 less! While .223/5.56 and 300BLK rifles have dominated the home defense and tactical scene for recent history, the Pistol Caliber Carbine (PCC) has a long history of pulling it's weight. With the new Sig Arm brace, this can stay classified as a pistol but have 99% of a rifles functionality.
Finally available for public consumption is the much anticipated Scorpion sub-gun. Imported as a pistol, it is a blowback-operated semi-auto in 9mm with a short 7¾” barrel. Equipped with our newly designed low-profile sights, its rear sight has four different aperture sizes for everything from close quarters to way out there. The sights ride on an 11” Picatinny rail perfect for mounting optics.
Pistol Caliber Carbines are the new hotness this year. What do you think?
