Student stops burglar with Katana



A Johns Hopkins University student defended himself from a would be burglar who broke into his apartment at 1am last night. As he confronted the burglar he lunged at him, he took quick action with the katana he brought with him to investigate. The burglar suffered lacerations to his upper body as well as a partially-severed hand, he later died at the scene. Students have had their off-campus apartments broken into before at the Baltimore college, which has caused concern with many of the students.

The home had four undergrads living in it who already had a Sony PlayStation and two laptops stolen earlier in the week. The suspect had priors for breaking and entering says the police. The student who confronted the burglar is currently in police custody until it will be decided if he will be brought on charges or not. To me it seems like a clear case of self defense, I’m sure he will be cleared of any wrong doing. It’s good that the students have stood up to these burglars who are stealing from them, let this be a lesson to all the burglars out there.

Marlin Fall 2009 rebate promo



Marlin Firearms, makers of some of the most popular rifles in the United States, is having a rebate on some of their rifles for the Fall season. The rebate program is going on from 8/01/2009 to 12/31/2009. If you buy a Marlin 336 lever-action rifle you’ll get $35 off. For a Marlin 795 rifle you’ll get $20 off. If you pick up one of Marlins other .22 rifles you’ll get $20 off as well. While it’s not much of a rebate, it’s still a welcomed discount in these slow times. Especially if you’re already in the market for a Marlin rifle. Looks like a good time to pick up that 30-30 Marlin I’ve been eyeing for a while.

Lynch Hummer opens Adventure Accessories gun shop in their dealership



The auto industry is in world of hurt, with the Hummer brand taking the brunt of the economic slowdown, what is a Hummer dealership to do? Well Lynch Hummer in Chesterfield, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis, has opened up his “Adventure Accessories” gun shop right in his Hummer dealership. Lynch said about his new business move, “It is a natural fit. Our customers enjoy outdoor sports and the firearms have been a big hit with our Hummer owners.”

Lynch has been successful Hummer dealership for a long time, so when times got tough they didn’t give up.

Big 5 carries Mosin Nagants again



The Mosin Nagant bolt-action rifle is a must have any WWII or vintage rifle fans. The Russian workhorses are known not only for the part they played in saving “Mother Russia” from the Nazi’s, but for how tough and durable they are as well. Recently the Mosin Nagant rifle in all its various configurations have been the budget rifle of choice. They are cheap (under $100), tough as nails, powerful, and many cases still very accurate. Well it looks like the sporting goods chain Big 5 Sporting Goods has a new lot of Mosin Nagants in stock and on sale for $99 (plus tax and DROS fee of course). The M91/30’s don’t include the bayonet and accessory kits however, but if you missed all the oppurtunities to get your hands on a Mosin in the past then you might want to jump on this before they’re gone. Or you can just spend the $30 and get a C&R FLL.
