Stealthy Rifle Cases

“I say, anyone for tennis?”

Review: Defensive Concepts of NC Concealed Carry Class

To obtain a permit to carry a concealed handgun in North Carolina, applicants must first attend a state approved class that covers the law and has a shooting skills test. The actual classes vary widely in both cost and quality across the state, and having heard cautionary tales about $100 ‘classes’ that were nothing more […]

New Fire Mission!!

Okay, you guys still have some burning hate left over after that Zumbo kerfluffle? Here’s a new injustice that needs our help! A nurse from Indiana named Joyce was visiting friends in Vermont and Massachusetts earlier this month when she ran into an unexpected problem. Upon checking in at the ticket counter in Albany, NY […]

Zumbo Reconsidered

I signed up for a 3 year membership in the NRA when I first attained awareness as […]

Bravo, Remington!

In case you haven’t heard, the Big Ballistic Green kicked Zumbo to the curb yesterday. Well done!
