Top 10 Handguns: The Handgun Aficionado’s Guide

Guns have been a part of American life since the United States’ inception. In our constitution, it states all Americans can bear arms, if they so please. Of course, there are rules with every privilege. The firearm must be registered legally, and certain types of guns aren’t for sale. Also, a permit must be obtained to carry your gun along. Rules are for safety, and this article isn’t a debate on the right t

A $4.5 Million ‘Meteorite Pistol’? A $10,000 Mammoth Tooth Gun?

Most serious hand gunners own a 1911 and admire what is considered to be one of the best handgun platforms of all time. It is still widely used in many arenas today, and I carried one for years as a state law enforcement officer. If you are a 1911 admirer and love the lines and precision of a well-built pistol with that can be called a work of art, then you may want to take a hard look at Cabot Guns. Cabot is an Am

7 Concealed Carry Guns That Are Perfect For Range Training

Many gun buyers new to concealed carry are eager to get out on the firing range. That’s great, but some subcompact guns suited for concealed carry are of limited usefulness for extensive practice. Low ammunition capacity and lack of outside-waistband holster and mag pouch choices mean the owner of the tiny gun may have to sit on the sidelines while his friends participate in a defensive pistol class or weekend ma

Report: Obama Issued A Massive Ammunition Ban Just One Day Before He Left Office

In early December SHTFplan contributor Jeremiah Johnson warned the inauguration was still a long way off and that we should never underestimate a Marxist with an army of oligarchs to lean on. It turns out that Johnson’s warnings were right on target, as we have learned over the last couple of weeks that President Obama and officials in his administration moved feverishly to implement new rules and regulations wit

4 Shotgun Accessories For A Better Home Defense

A shotgun is the ideal choice for a home defense firearm for many gun owners. There are great reasons for this: avoidance of over-penetration, slightly less demanding accuracy standards in less-than-perfect shooting conditions, and mighty stopping power. Practically every conversation about home defense shotguns also includes mention of that ominous racking sound—but I hope no one is depending on sound effects to

The Silent ‘Stealth’ Survival Rifle That’s Compact And Lightweight, Too

Air rifles have been around for quite some time. The Austrian army equipped some of its units with air rifles in the early 1800s, and the Lewis and Clark expedition carried one on its westward journey. Back then, a huge flaw of the air rifle’s design was that it was delicate and had to be pumped over 100 times to fill its air reservoir. I fondly remember my 10th birthday. It was the day I opened up that beautiful

4 Stunning Long-Range Rifles That Will Shoot Past 1,000 Yards

Perhaps the most impressive display of marksmanship is true long-range shooting. Reaching out to a target at 1,000 yards or beyond requires skill, knowledge and lots of practice to do it right. While some may deem it as impractical to hit a target at half a mile, the amount of research that goes into selection of the rifle, optics and ammunition — plus learning how to read wind, observe the effects of humidity, a

Liberals Suddenly Embrace 2nd Amendment: “Support For Extreme Measures Has Faded”

Editor’s Comment: The more that liberal states attempt to restrict gun ownership, the more that the reasons for having self-defense tools rears its head. Crime goes down where gun ownership is strong, and where they clamp down, Americans come out of the woodwork to purchase weapons while they can, and prepare to defend themselves no matter what. The 2nd Amendment is perhaps the most tangible of American rights, a

The AK-47 vs AR-15: Which Rifle is Better?

Yes, I am going there. One of the most hotly debated questions in prepper/survival/firearm enthusiast circles is around the best survival rifle. For all intents and purposes, there are only two in competition in the US and those are the AK-47 and the AR-15. I will add that there are variants of both and I am lumping all of those into these two categories. This question of what is the best survival rifle is one that

The Best Shotgun Ammo For Home Defense

Shotguns have long been considered the king of the home defense realm, and only recently have the carbine and pistol stepped up to challenge this. That’s a different article for a different time, though. Here, we are going to focus on the shotgun for home defense and property defense. In my opinion, a shotgun is a thinking man’s weapon. It’s incredibly capable and adaptable, and has more applications than any

5 Caliber You Better Stockpile In Case Hillary Wins (No. 3 Might Surprise You!)

It wasn’t all that long ago that you couldn’t find the ammo you needed anywhere at any price. Store shelves were bare and reliable online distributors were out of stock. And unscrupulous vendors took advantage of the shortage to raise prices to astronomical highs. Well, folks, those times might be coming again if the election doesn’t go the way gun owners are hoping it will go, and while we are enjoying relat

The 5 Most Reliable Handguns For Survival

If you could own only five handguns, what would they be? What type, caliber and even manufacturer? Here’s my five: 1. Browning Buck Mark .22 LR You need a pistol or a revolver chambered in .22 LR to complement your .22 rifle (assuming you have a .22 rifle in your collection). Beyond that, a .22 handgun will fulfill multiple uses. If you’ve set traps for small game, a .22 handgun will be the most practical choi

Futuristic Looking Rifles and Guns

Top Futuristic Looking Rifles and Guns When I’m thinking about futuristic looking rifles, the first thing that comes to my mind is that awesome, kick-ass looking “blaster” from Star Wars. Remember that line Han Solo used on Luke Skywalker? “Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.” Oh, let’s not forget  the pulse-rifles used by Marines in Alien or Rick D
