    The Bump Fire Systems bumpstock worked really well.  This is a screen cap from the video with several rounds of brass visibly in the air. If you haven't taken the bump stock plunge, this is the cheapest we've seen, and it works.

    The $99 AR-15 Bump Stock - Actually Works!! - Video Review

    Question. What is both more fun and more expensive than shooting your AR-15? The answer is shooting your AR-15 with a bump stock. We first covered the original bump stock in March of 2011, and at the time, I wondered if we would even see it still ava ... More

    Question. What is both more fun and more expensive than shooting your AR-15? The answer is shooting your AR-15 with a bump stock. We first covered the original bump stock in March of 2011, and at the time, I wondered if we would even see it still available a month later. The SlideFire Systems stock was $369, and in talking to the inventor of the stock, I was told that they arrived at that price purely out of hard business numbers. How much did they need to get for the stock in order to have the capitol to grow the company and develop new products? Our article here at GunsAmerica was the first major firearms industry news outlet feature story on the product, and that broke it nationally. As a company, SlideFire was born, and it continues to plug on. As I write this, the SlideFire stock is still $299.

    At first glance, the Guncrafter CCO looks like many other 1911s. It is not.

    Guncrafter Industries 9mm CCO--Review

    There's a reason why so many people have gravitated toward polymer pocket pistols for concealed carry. 1911s, though beautiful, tend to be a bit bulky and temperamental. I can't begin to tell you how many times I've seen them fail. But what if you co ... More

    There's a reason why so many people have gravitated toward polymer pocket pistols for concealed carry. 1911s, though beautiful, tend to be a bit bulky and temperamental. I can't begin to tell you how many times I've seen them fail. But what if you could have a single action custom built for your specific concealed carry wish-list, and one that would never fail? How much would that be worth? Today we're looking at just such a gun, a 9mm CCO from Guncrafter Industries--and we've spent some time in their shop to see how this level of perfection is possible.

    Perhaps the best modern reference to the Kukri is Alice in the Resident Evil movies. She rocks two of them.

    This is not a knife snob article. I am a big fan of cheap knives, and I don’t consider them really that inferior. To some degree, a knife is a knife is a knife. The point of this article isn’t cost or quality. My question is what style of knife o ... More

    This is not a knife snob article. I am a big fan of cheap knives, and I don’t consider them really that inferior. To some degree, a knife is a knife is a knife. The point of this article isn’t cost or quality. My question is what style of knife or short sword is best for a survival situation. On one person you can carry a big knife and a little knife, and maybe an even bigger knife on your back, but coupled with a battle rifle, a pistol, ammo and supplies, a lot of blades sticking out of your form isn’t going to be a net positive. You have to choose, and choose well.

    Henry makes guns that keep up the values established by the company's namesake—traditional pistol caliber lever actions, mostly. These guns make versatile ranch guns, and are cowboy competitions. They're adding to their catalog in a big way. If you are looking for an American made .30-30, or a hard hitting favorite .45-70, check out the new guns from Henry. These are hard-working lever actions, but miles away from the pistol calibers you might associate with the brand.

    The AR pistol market got a huge shot in the arm when SIG released their arm brace. And the ATF had originally opined that shouldering the arm brace was beyond their control--an opinion that sold thousands of arm braces. Short barreled rifles became instantly irrelevant. But now, the ATF is singing a different tune, and offering a very different opinion. Read on...

    FNH makes a competition shotgun? Indeed. The FNH SC-1 Over/Under is, you guessed it, a double-barrel beauty. It’s designed expressly for clays competition, although there is nothing about it that would discourage other uses. Personally, I wouldn’t hesitate to hunt ducks or geese with it. This is a versatile gun that can be tweaked for an exacting fit, and it is priced competitively, too.

    When you think about it, we wear our guns a lot more than we shoot them, yet they are designed primarily for shooting. The new Taurus Curve fixes that. The grip on the gun is curved, so that when you were it on your hip or carry it in your pocket, the guns hugs the contour of your body. It is a 6+1 .380 ACP semi-automatic pistol with a consistent trigger pull for each shot. The MSRP for the introductory model is $392, and it will come with an integral LaserLyte light and laser combo built in. The Curve also comes with a Kydex pull-off trigger guard holster, and screwed onto the side of the gun is a steel clip for inside the waistband or inside a purse pocket carry.

    Bigger is sometimes better. That's the philosphy behind the fixation with the AR-10. For a marginal increase in size and weight, you have a lot more punch on the terminal end of ballistic trajectory. CMMG's Mk 3 .308 is a beast of a gun, and offers A ... More

    cdv-715-working-before-adjustmentPrepping 101: Catastrophic Radiation Events & How to Survive
    From what I can tell, nobody is going to send me a Facebook notification 24 hours before Russia, China, “terrorists” (ie. our own shadow government), or the US under official license launches a nuke. Radiation is silent once you are outside the blast radius of a nuclear bomb, so unless news of the blast makes it onto Drudge, how would you even know that a blast has occurred? Up until now we have focused our attention on Geiger tube radiation meters, but I recently found out that those meters tend to BLANK OUT at radiation levels that aren’t even on the level of a CT scan. For this article I consulted with Shane Connor, owner of the famous radiation site KI4U.com. I bought potassium iodide from him and had him calibrate my Civil Defense meter back in the 90s. He is still doing it today, and he calibrated four meters for us for this article.
