    The Real Scoop on Oregon Coast?

    How is my account still active?! I don't know. But how convenient, because I want the scoop on the Oregon Coast. I have done some Googling and browsed previous threads, but am hoping for insider information -- the good and the bad. Looks like CCPs aren't too hard to get, but gun sales have...

    Better Background Checks?

    Since I'm pretty tired of arguing with my liberal friends about banning guns, I'm coming here with the hope that we can try a little experiment. Maybe if we can come up with some ideas, we can change the world. Or something. So here it is: is there a way we can have some kind of "universal...

    For Veterans Day -- A Humorous Look Back

    Everyone's getting a little too anxious and stressed out about the election results, so I thought for this Veterans Day I would share with you a page I found from my grandfather's officers' training notebook from some 70 years ago. I think some of these will make you chuckle. Taboos: 1...

    Oh...I Got a Job!

    Crap. Sorry, I forgot to tell you guys. Not that any of you were sitting there dreadfully worried about me. But yes, I got a job! Beginning of July. It's a very good one, writing social media copy for a corporation. Unfortunately I also had to file for bankruptcy and I'm going through a...

    Ted Nugent VS Secret Service: I Don't Get It

    I'm as likely to side with liberals as conservatives on any given political issue, and vice versa, but here's one that's got me stumped, and I imagine most conservative as well: What's with the Secret Service getting called on Nugent? I understand how the First Amendment works--direct threats...

    The Only Thing That Pisses Me Off More than Rambo Wannabes... when my friends try to call me out on my right to carry: Facebook Me: So, when your place of work has a no weapons policy, and some person who doesn't really care what the sign on your door says comes in to kill everyone, are you supposed to defend yourself with the stapler? A hot cup of...

    Weirdo in My Driveway = Cops or Mossberg 500?

    Well, I decided to call the cops after said weirdo was still there after 20 minutes. Mind you, I had decided to take a nap and was in a state of undress, when I kept hearing vehicle doors shutting. I looked out my rather large bedroom window and there's some strange vehicle parked in a small...

    Hi Guys. My employers at and just terminated my contract for using the word "gun porn" in a Tweet referring to SHOT Show pictures. Anyone need a good social media manager?

    The Fine Print

    My question is, why on earth didn't the ATF think to do something similar? "FBI agents arrested Osmakac on Saturday after he allegedly bought explosive devices and firearms from an undercover agent. The firearms and explosives were rendered inoperable by law enforcement." News from The...

    Mt. Ranier Shooting

    After a ranger is shot, the reactions are typically illogical. I understand people need someone or something to blame, but really? News from The Associated Press "It has been legal for people to take loaded firearms into Mount Rainier since 2010, when a federal law went into effect that made...

    Reno Open Carry?

    I'm planning a trip to Reno soon, and I see they don't honor my CC permit, but that open carry is allowed in Nevada. Just how "allowed" is it? Especially in a bigger city like Reno?

    Where Did the Vid Go?

    I'm looking for that video that was up here yesterday, a compilation of gun goofs. Can't remember what it was titled.

    G50AE Banned?

    I just noticed G50AE has a "banned" under his name. What the heck happened? I hope being snarky isn't reason enough, 'cause there's a few of us who would be in trouble!

    Dial or Electronic Lock?

    Emily Gets Her Gun

    So, I've been following this on my Twitter feed, and I liked the idea when she started--write a running column on how difficult it is to get a gun in D.C. But frankly, the more she reports, the more I think, why didn't she just spend five or ten minutes online, or on a forum like this one? She...

    Rockwell Arms

    I'm about to sell my first gun for Rockwell Arms, and I'm a little nervous! I thought I'd let you guys know that if you want the Browning 1911-22 A1 22 pistol, you can order it now at for about $600. The catch is that it has apparently become the most sought-after firearm of...

    Gun Store Aiming Pad Thingies

    I guess if G50 says "CCW neck chain holder thingies," I can say pad thingies. Does anyone know what the aiming pads sometimes found behind the counter at gun stores are called, and where I might be able to get some?

    Sig P226--What's So Great?

    What's so great about the Sig Sauer P226? I have noticed a lot of people have one, want one, or swear by one. What makes it stand out from similar models from different manufacturers?
