Sootch00 has posted a rifle review, this time of the DS Arms SA-58 FN/FAL. From my personal experience of the DS Arms FN/FAL, they are great rifles. Sootch00 goes into some of the history of the FN/FAL. One thing that sets the DS Arms FM/FAL apart from other FNs on the market, the DS Arms […]

Tips on buying an AK-47

Ak Operators Union, Local 47-74 published a video on youtube awhile back where they talk about things to look for before you purchase an AK-47. First thing that is mentioned is magazine fit. My WASR-10 can be rather picky when it comes to magazines. Some are loose while others are rather tight. When I bought […]

Please stop the open carry movement

Guys and gals, please stop with the open carry movement. You are not doing anything but scaring people. Law enforcement is called to check yall out, tensions get high, it is just a matter of time before someone gets shot.

Leave your long gun at home where they belong.

The right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. I understand that, trust me I understand. Nobody is infringing on your right to bear arms. There is a time and place for everything. Carrying a rifle or shotgun into a store is not the time or place.

Five must have AR-15 accessories for SHTF

When the crap hits the fan what accessories would you want on your AR-15?

For OPSEC and to keep our name off extra paperwork lets ignore silencers and short barreled rifles.

Silencers may play an important role in surviving a Post-SHTF world, but paperwork is also an OPSEC issue. Anyone having access to the right paperwork will know exactly who has a silencer and who has a short barreled rifle. Then there are the local, state and federal laws and restrictions.

For the sake of discussion and to keep things simple, lets just exclude anything that requires paperwork.

AR-15 for SHTF

2013 NRA Show Houston Texas

Man oh man, what a weekend. My wife and I left Jasper Texas around 6 am Friday morning, got breakfast at Jack in the box in Woodville Texas, and arrived at the NRA show at the 9 am. Traffic was not that bad. thank goodness there were no wrecks on HWY 59.

We found a parking lot directly in front of Minute Maid park, which is across from the George R Brown convention center. Holy crap was parking expensive, we had to pay $30, but the location was perfect.

My wife and I entered the show, obtained our media badges, then started walking around.

This was my wifes first real gun show. She never showed any interest in gun shows, that was until I built her a pink M4. Now that she has something she can relate to she is showing more interest.

Come and Take It

As a free people it is our right to keep and bear arms. The government has no right, nor the ability to take those rights from us.

Let us remember 1776, 1812, 1836 and 1844. The people will not lay down their arms at the whelm of a rogue government.

Surprised By The Gun Haters

One thing that has surprised me after the Sandy Hook shooting is all of the hatred towards guns. This is not your typical “we need to ban guns” type of hatred that we see after a shooting, this is unbridled hatred.

This is the nazi and the jews type of hatred, pit bull attacks a baby type of hatred,,,,. If those people could, they would take every gun away, and that is absolutely crazy. Crazy that logical people have a knee jerk reaction to a tragic event.Kevin Felts, blogger and survivalist

Instead of placing the blame on the root cause of the gun violence issue, gun haters blame the tool. That is like blaming Snap-on for someone drinking and driving.

If the people are not united, can we survive as a nation?

After Waco and the Branch Davidian stand off, did gun haters want religion control?

After the financial collapse of 2008, did the gun haters want banking control?

With so many pit bull attacks every year, are the gun haters calling for pit bull control?

President Obama is having US citizens killed with no due process of law, are the gun haters outraged about that? Probably not.

Ammunition Shortage Janaury 2013

In all honesty I did not expect the ammunition shortage to go this long. There is talk that its going to get worse.

When Obama and Dianne Feinstein opened their mouths about gun control in the wake of Sandy Hook, gun owners went into a panic buying frenzy.

Shelves have been empty for close to a month. Sandy Hook shooting happened on Friday December 14, 2012. The following week guns and ammunition were flying off the shelves.Kevin Felts, blogger and survivalist

Here we are a month later, December 14, 2012 – January 14, 2013, the situation has gone from bad to worse.

Pistol ammunition – gone
Rifle ammunition – gone
22 long rifle – gone
Shotgun – hit and miss

Bolt action and lever action ammunition such as 270 Winchester, 30-30 Winchester, 30-06 Springfield and 45-70 is still on the shelves. The ammunition that is still available has gone up in price over the past month.

Dianne Feinstein Obama And Gun Control

Kevin Felts, blogger and survivalistThere has been a lot of talk from Dianne Feinstein and obama about gun control. My honest opinion on the matter, neither of them want the laws they are suggesting.

The only reason Dianne Feinstein and obama are talking about gun control, is to make the liberals happy, and to say they did “something” after the Aurora Colorado and Sandy Hook shootings.

Why would Dianne Feinstein and Obama be faking the call for gun control?

Because the proposed laws are too radical.

Proposed Gun Tax

Poll taxes were struck down. The government can not charge a fee or tax on a right. There is no fee to go to church, there is no fee or tax to vote, there is no special government fee or tax to read a newspaper or watch the evening news.

The gun control act of 1934 set reasonable limits on the ownership of fully automatic weapons. People can still own fully automatic weapons, but thy have to jump through hoops to do so.

Dianne Feinsteins proposal to pay a tax on a right will not stand up in court, and she knows it. But to make the liberal left happy, she has to introduce “something” in the wake of Sandy Hook. This is why Dianne Feinstein keeps getting relected, because she appeals to liberals.

Rifle Penetration Test

Military Arms Channel on youtube does some pentration test on the 308 Winchester, 7.62×39, 5.45×39 and the 5.56mm.

In the video the tress are said to by 3 feet in diameter. I think that statement is in error. Its probably more like 3 feet in circumference´╗┐ instead of diameter. A simple way to convert circumference´╗┐ to diameter, measure the circumference then divide by 3. If you want to be exact, measure the circumference and then divide by 3.14. For most intents and purposes for this type of video, divide by 3.

I was surprised the 5.45×39 penetrated the tree while the other calibers did not.

What “really” surprised my was the lack of penetration by the 308 Winchester. But then again, shooting from a bullpup the 308 may not have reached terminal velocity. I wonder how the 308 would have done out of a 20 inch or longer barrel, or from a bolt action rifle instead of a semi-automatic.

Why did the 5.45×39 the tree, while the 7.62×39 and the 5.56mm did not?

Rethinking SHTF Rifle And Ammunition Choices

Empty Ammunition ShelvesThe shelves are empty, except for a few select calibers. Those calibers are 243 Winchester, 30-30 Winchester, 270 Winchester, 7mm magnum, 45 colt and 30-06 Springfield. A line of people are standing at the counter in the hopes the store got a shipment in.

Sounds like something from a movie? Nope, its the result of panic buying after the Communist Dianne Feinstein talked about another gun ban in the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting.

The calibers left on the shelf share some common denominators, they do not fit semi-automatic rifles, nor are they chambered in modern day military grade rifles.

The M1 Garand is chambered 30-06, but its not like the M1 Garand is sold by very many sporting goods stores. When someone goes looking for a new deer rifle, chances are the M1 Garand is not even on the screen.

There are semi-automatic rifles on the market chambered for 243 Winchester and 270 Winchester, but they are not very popular with modern day hunters.

What Was Sold Out

Everything besides the calibers listed above were sold out. 223 Remington, 22 long rifle, 308 Winchester,,,,,.
