Wells Fargo Stands Strong in Face of Anti-Gun Pressure

In recent weeks, pressure from anti-gun groups has prompted banks such as Bank of America and Citigroup as well as asset management companies like BlackRock to take steps to distance themselves from the gun industry, ostensibly to promote a “response to gun violence.” Not content with these actions, the anti-gun lobby – a group which has expanded to include many left-leaning organizations – has now targeted Wells Fargo for its refusal to cave to similar demands. Yesterday, the American Federation of Teachers announced that it was ending its “Union Privilege” program which directed AFT members to Wells Fargo for mortgages.

Danish Armed Forces Choose the Sig Sauer P320 X-Carry

Photo Credit: The Firearm Blog Hot on the heels of being selected by the US Marine Corps, the Navy, and Air Force the Sig Sauer P320 has landed a major foreign contract. The Danish armed forces have chosen the P320 X -Carry model as their new service pistol. The P320 X-Carry model went head to head with the Beretta APX, the Glock 17 Gen 5, and surprisingly the Canik TP9SF. The Danish Armed Forces released a statement that I’ve used Google Translate, so it’s a bit rough. “A total of four guns were included in the test, and the guns

Review Video: CZ Scorpion EVO 3 S1 9mm Pistol

It’s been a year since I first started reviewing the CZ Scorpion EVO 3 S1, and I still haven’t figured out why CZ gave the gun such a long name, but I have figured out whether I like it or not. I like it. In fact, I like it so much that I bought the one I was sent for review before I had even finished the review. Part of this is because I did not have any pistol caliber carbines or rifle style pistols, and once I started shooting this one I realized what I had been missing, but

Marine Leadership Clarifies MHS Purchase

  Omaha Outdoors has been following the development and implementation of the Military’s new MHS handgun closely. The MHS is a two handgun system that includes the XM17, and the XM18. The XM17 is the full-sized model and the XM18 being the compact option. Both models are based on the SIG P320, a pistol Omaha Outdoor’s discovered could fire when dropped. A year after the Army announced the SIG Sauer would become their new service handgun the Marines, Navy, and Air Force followed suit. Each adopted their chosen variant of the pistol. The Marines are purchasing 35,000 MHS handguns, and

Louisiana Senators Rejects Raising Minimum Age to Purchase Rifles

“Ain’t nobody got time for that.” Is what the Senators in Louisiana must have been thinking when a bill crossed their desk to raise the minimum age to purchase certain rifles to 21. The rifles in questions were of course supposed assault weapons. Assault weapons being semi-automatic rifles that tend to get panties in a twist. The bill tossed before the Senate was rejected 26 to 9. This type of legislation is what I call a “Do Something” law. Not do anything useful, just do something. This shooting is one of the very few where the shooter was under the

SIG Sauer in Hot Water Over Colombian Deal

SIG Sauer has recently found itself in the midst of a criminal investigation regarding the export of SP2022 pistols to Colombia. The German-owned conglomerate stands accused of selling these firearms without the proper export license by German authorities. The public prosecutor’s office in Germany has levied charges at five SIG Sauer managers. If the Managers are convicted, they could face a maximum of five years in prison and face 14.8 million in fines. SIG Sauer, well Sauer specifically, is Germany’s oldest and most well-known arms manufacturer. The stereotype of German engineering does ring true to this classic brand. They make

Parkland Florida Teacher Forgets Gun in Public Bathroom – Catches a Charge

Rule 1 of carrying a gun, make sure you are carrying it. Sean Simpson, a Marjory Stoneman teacher, recently failed to remember that he had a gun and left it in a public bathroom. The resulting consequence was a drunk homeless guy firing it. According to Joseph Spataro, our drunken homeless man, he wanted to see if the gun was loaded. So he pulled the trigger. It was. Luckily no one was harmed. Both men were arrested and booked on separate charges. Sean Simpson was booked for failing to safely store a firearm, a Class 2 Misdemeanor. He posted a

How to Lose Voters and Alienate Constituents – Vermont Governor Goes Full Gun Control

“I don’t believe that we need more gun restrictions in Vermont at this time. I think we should enforce the ones we have. I think we should focus more on safety and gun education, but also addressing the violence problem that is systemic across the country—and I don’t have the answers for that, but that’s what’s driving this frustration, this outrage. And it’s alarming; the horrific acts are alarming. But from my standpoint, I don’t believe we need to change our gun laws in Vermont.” – Governor Phil Scott, 216 on Vermont Public Radio Vermont Governor Phil Scott will likely

Kel-Tec Issues SUB-2000 Recall

Kel-Tec is an exciting company who does interesting things. They do come out of left field with a lot of their designs, and some hit and some miss. The SUB-2000, or SUB 2k, has been one of their most popular, and interesting designs. This pistol caliber carbine takes favorite handgun magazines from companies like Glock, S&W, Beretta, and more. The carbine also folds in half, making it extremely compact and easy to carry. Plus it’s cheap, it’s fun, simple, and unique. I own one, and it’s been the only Kel-Tec I’ve ever deemed worth the QC issues that Kel-Tec seems

The Real Problem With Bank of America’s New Gun Policy

Bank of America announced today that they will no longer finance companies which manufacture what they call “military-style firearms for civilian use.” This announcement comes just weeks after Citigroup announced their own firearms policy, which proscribed the sale of bump fire stocks, “high capacity” magazines, and long guns to those under 21, among other things. The shift in language from “assault weapons” to “military-style weapons” is telling – and disturbing. While the pro-gun side has been quick to counter comments about assault weapons with information about how full auto firearms differ from semi-auto firearms, the “military-style weapons” moniker we have

SIG Sauer Dives Into the 6.5 Creedmoor

SIG Sauer has become what’s essentially the big box store of firearms manufacturers. They produce their popular handguns, a variety of rifles, as well as optics, suppressors, and ammunition. Ammunition is what brings us here today. SIG provides a wide range of ammo, including standard FMJ, defensive ammo, match grade, and hunting ammunition. SIG is expanding their ammunition options daily and is now offering a new 6.5 Creedmoor load. This particular load is part of their SIG HT Elite Performance line.  The 6.5 Creedmoor finds itself used more for long range shooting than hunting, but it’s a great medium game
