Gun Sales To Women On The Rise



It seems like gun ownership isn’t just for the guys anymore, gun ownership among women is on the rise. Miles Hall, owner of the H and H Gun Range in Oklahoma City says his sales to women in the first month of 2012 alone were up 54%. The gun industry has taken notice as well, many companies have released pink hand guns and rifle and even a bra holster, all targeted towards women shooters.

This news isn’t surprising, over the past few years I’ve noticed the increasing number women at the shooting ranges and gun shops I frequent. And not just women with their husbands or boyfriends, I’ve seen groups of women together practicing their marksmanship and purchasing guns without a guy with them. I think this is great for the shooting sports and gun ownership in general in America, it shows that more and more people are open to owning and using firearms for both sport and self defense, or just practicing their second amendment rights. Here’s to all the lady gun owners out there, happy shooting!

Russian TP-82 Cosmonaut Gun



Yeah you read it right, the Russian TP-82 was carried by cosmonauts on space missions. They actually used the triple-barrled firearm until 2006 and were part of the cosmonauts survival kits. They were taken out of service because the ammo had become unusable over the years. The TP-82 had two upper smoothbore barrels that used 40 gauge (12.5×70 mm) ammo with the lower barrel chambered for 5.45×39mm ammo. The TP-82 also featured a buttstock that doubled as a machete.
