Gun Thread (2-17-2013)

Gun Manufacturers Continue To Fight Back

We've talked about Ronnie Barrett's great letter to the LAPD and refusal to service their .50 cal. rifle in this space before, and last week we reprinted LaRue Tactical's notice that they won't be selling to law enforcement agencies in New York.

More folks are getting in on the act with Olympic Arms adopting LaRue's stance and Magpul telling Colorado it'll be 'adios' if they go through with a magazine ban.

The little town of Ilion, NY, home of Remington Arms Co., has been pointing out that it has a lot to lose, but I doubt the boneheads in Albany care.

Hopefully this trend will continue and the big boys, Smith & Wesson, Ruger, Glock, etc. will jump on board.


A Thought On Dealing With The Ammunition Shortage

With the cost of even .22 ammo being through the roof, when you're lucky enough to be able to find it, I've been thinking of getting a pellet gun. Specifically, I've been looking at this one:


Benjamin Trail NP Camo .22

With 250 pellets selling for about 7 bucks, this idea is looking better every day.

A reader also sent in this search at Cabela's that shows the wide variety of air pistols available.

If you've recently gotten into airgun shooting or are considering it, drop me some recommendations in the comments.

Gun Of The Week - Answer

That's the Liberator FP-45. A million or so were made and intended to be dropped into occupied Europe in WWII for use by the resistance. It's a very simple design that could be made in any machine shop or well-appointed home workshop.

Monty found this excellent piece and sent it around to the cobloggers earlier in the week. Give it a read.
