The saying goes, “Be ready so you don’t have to get ready.” The Government of Denmark just advised its people to get ready and prepare for a potential war with Russia. What is the advice that they are being given and how does that jive with reality? Two court rulings have come down in the last week highlighting the criminal overreach by Joe Biden’s “AFT”.  First the prohibition against the pistol brace was thrown out by a judge in Texas. Then the US Supreme Court ruled that the AFT overstepped its authority by classifying bump-stocks as “machine guns”. We have a Tech Talk...

Did you hear about the “mass shooting” in Philadelphia? We are willing to bet that unless you live in Pennsylvania, you did not. You might ask yourself why? The media loves blood in the streets and they love pushing gun control, why bury this story?  How much scope is too much scope? During our Tech Talk from EOTech Inc we consider the pros and cons of high powered optics.  Does Gun Control make you safer? Are countries that restrict gun ownership “safer”?

From www.ammoland.com:

While searching for cases where pistols were used to defend against bears, three failures have been found. In the last published results, of 73 cases, that was a 4% failure rate. The very small sample size means a few cases can change the percentages of success or failure significantly. It is useful to know what happened in each case to determine how the failures and successes occurred.

The three failures involved the three species of North American bears. One case involving a polar bear and a .22 pistol in 1995, one case involving a grizzly bear and a .357 magnum in 2010, and one case involving a black bear and a .38 revolver in 2015.

Reasonably detailed accounts of the failures for the 2010 and 2015 attacks have been given in the last update, where 73 cases were examined.
