Tactical bolt-action pens



In case your arsenal of tactical goodies isn’t complete, maybe this tactical bolt-action pen will round out your collection. They’re available in both Tactical Black and in Tactical Titanium, they’re made of aluminum and are CNC-Milled down to a .45 cal diameter, because pens any smaller than .45 just won’t do. Amirite guys?

Handgun vs Shotgun For Home Defense


Picking what kind of gun to use for home defense can be debated from now into eternity. For some a handgun makes sense, while others may prefer a shotgun or even a rifle. It all depends on your situation, your home and its layout, whether you have children in the house and so forth.

Personally I’m a fan of using a handgun for self-defense, but I can see the case for a trusty pump-action shotgun in the right circumstances. But what do I know? I’m just a lowly gun blogger and enthusiast. However I stumbled upon a recent interview of Chris Costa over at Rem870.com where he talks about his gun of choice for home defense.

Girls Shooting Shotguns



I actually see this happen to a lot of guys too. Proper shooting stance will take a lot of the kick out of it however. Whenever I take someone new to shooting to the range I always let them fire off a few rounds from my Mossberg 590 just to see the look on their faces afterwards. The slow motion actually puts a lot of perspective on how powerful shotguns really are.


Zombie X Chainsaw Going Into Production



Remeber the Zombie X Chainsaw attachment we posted about back in January from the 2012 SHOT SHOW? Well we just got word that it is actually going into production and should be available for purchase shortly. The Zombie X Chainsaw was debuted at the Double Star booth at the 2012 SHOT Show, and due to the overwhelming interest it created the Zombie X Chainsaw will actually come to market.

The Zombie X Chainsaw was designed and fabricated by Bob Weir of Double Star. The new Zombie X Chainsaw will not be produced by Double Star however, instead it will be produced by Panacea X, a new firearms accessories maker formed to bring the Zombie X Chainsaw to market. Stay tuned for more news as we get it.

Milwaukee and DeWalt AR-15s




To some guns are just a tool, something used on to get the job done. And just like other tools, a few major tool makers have started to produce guns to round out their tool product lineup.

Or have they? Althought the DeWalt and Milwaukee AR-15 rifles above look pretty darn real, and cool, they’re actually made by a gun enthusiasts who probably also has a garage full of power tools. But how cool would it be to be able to buy guns at your local Sears or Lowes?

Silver Shadow Double Barrel AR-15



double barreled  ar-15

I’m not sure what some people’s obsession with double barrel firearms are. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a fan of double-barreled shotguns, and historical double-barreled hunting rifles that actually served a real purpose. But stuff like the Arsenal Double Barrel 1911 just makes me wonder, is there really a market for such a gun?

Apparently there is, Israeli armsmaker Silver Show is said to have a double barrel AR-15 in the works that they will debut at the Eurosatory expo in Paris next month.

I’m more of a fan of triple-barreled guns myself.

Is AR-15 Panic Buying Back?



Remember back in 2008 during and right after the elections? When it was pretty much impossible to find ammo and many popular firearms? It was a quest just to find any AR-15s or .223/5.56 in-stock anywhere. Well it looks like the run on guns and ammo is about to go into full swing again. 57Strat posted on AR15.com about the recent out of stock situations at many online retailers who sell AR-15 rifles and parts. On a similar note, it looks like the prices of .223 and 5.56 are on the rise again too.

I have never seen it this bad. Check out the “out of stock” situation on the below examples:

Bravo Company upper receivers. Out of stock on 10 out of 11 uppers: Link

Bravo Company complete uppers: link

LMT is 20 weeks backordered on their 16″ upper: Link

Most rifles at LMT are backordered up to 20 weeks: Link

Rainer Arms is “out of stock” on more than half of their complete upper models: Link

Noveske is “out of stock” on nearly every upper they offer: Link

Most complete uppers are “out of stock” at DSG Arms: Link

AIM “sold out” on uppers: Link

AIM “sold out” on complete upper: Link

This is just a few examples. If you check other sites you’ll find similar situations.
