  • Guns, Gun Safety, More

    Tom Cole|Jul 1, 2022

    I am a legal gun owner. I have owned guns for years and have many according to some people's estimates. Being a legal gun owner is a heavy responsibility. It starts with ensuring you know how to properly use the weapon and adhering to the five basic safety rules: 1. All firearms are considered loaded (never assume anything – check it). 2. Always point firearms in a safe direction until on a target and ready to fire. 3. Always keep your trigger finger off the trigger until ready to fire. 4. A... Full story

  • Guns Which One

    John Anderson|Oct 1, 2021

    Micro 9's For Everyday Carry It's hard to beat a micro 9 for concealed carry, especially if you have a hard time concealing a full sized 9mm pistol. I like the idea of replacing my .380 pocket pistols with micro 9's, simply because it eliminates having to keep two different types of ammo on hand. In addition to that, the micro 9's have a greater capacity. My pocket .380 holds just seven rounds (6 + 1), but some of the micro 9's are 13 + 1. If you're thinking of getting one for yourself or someon... Full story

  • Being A Gray Man

    John Anderson|May 1, 2021

    Of course, all of this advice applies to women as well. When I was growing up, the high school parking lot would be full of pickup trucks with a full gun rack on the back window. Everybody I knew hunted or had a hunter in their family, and nobody thought it was "weird" to have a gun. Kids were taught early to respect firearms. That isn't the case today. In fact, it's starting to become the exact opposite. The other day, Margie got an email from NRA Women with a story, "Should you tell people you... Full story

    John Anderson|Mar 1, 2021

    Learn And Feel More At Ease With Your Firearm According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), over five million Americans became first-time gun owners in 2020. That's great news for the sport! In fact, in the first seven months of 2020, over 12 million guns were purchased, up more than 70 percent over the same period in 2019. The numbers might have been higher if gun shops hadn't been scrambling to meet the demand. And you were wondering why ammo is so scarce? Seriously, it's not a... Full story

  • How To Practice When You Can't Find Ammo

    John Anderson|Jan 1, 2021

    The year 2021 is starting out with ammunition shortages that are probably going to continue well into the year, according to the NRA. Even guys who reload their own ammo are having a hard time, because primers are in short supply too. If you have a bit of ammo, you might be loathe to shoot it up until you can replace it, and I get that – I feel the same way. But just because you don't want to "waste" your ammo doesn't mean you can't practice and keep your shooting skills sharp. Shotgun P... Full story

  • CCW Rules

    John Anderson|Nov 1, 2020

    In Other Words, Know Before You Go If you have taken a Concealed Carry class and have gotten your permit, congratulations! Now you need to start thinking about what that permit does and doesn't do for you. Within Arizona, there are still many places where you cannot legally carry a firearm, even with a permit. As for travel, well -- Native American Reservations, National Forests and Parks, and other states have different rules, even within your home state. I'll try to cover some of those rules,... Full story

  • No Ammo? No Problem!

    John Anderson|Aug 1, 2020

    If you have tried to buy any ammunition lately, you already know that shelves are bare. Buying online is just as trying: I've put a couple boxes in my cart on the Cabelas website, and before I could check out, they were already out of stock. Ditto on other websites: page after page of "out of stock" messages on almost every kind and caliber of pistol ammo. The only thing I've found on the shelves lately is bird shot, rifle ammo, and tracers. So odds are, even if you want to get a little practice... Full story
