Holy Heckler and Koch – HK Brings Back the USC

When I got the email that Heckler & Koch was bringing the USC back, I was ecstatic. There is something about German space guns that captures my soul. The USC was discontinued in 2013 and was never a big hit, and HK never made a ton of them. They weren’t precisely unobtanium, but you were going to work to get one. The USC is based on the HK UMP. The UMP has always held a special place in my heart. It’s the middle child of the HK SMG family. The MP5 is, of course, the most famous submachine gun in

NoRA’s Anti-Gun Movement’s Goal: No Rifles

Anti-gun forces are coalescing around a new movement which is finally honest about its goals – at least as far as a literal interpretation of its name is concerned. The group – perhaps better referred to as a “movement” since it does not tell us who its leaders are –  is calling itself “NoRA” for No Rifle Association. Taken literally, we see that they want no more rifles, and presumably, no more handguns or shotguns, either. Their logo shows an AR15 being broken in half. While their website is short on concrete goals, it’s not hard to see what they

Gun Guy Movie Review: Beirut

There are certain cities which evoke a sense of mystique, adventure, and perhaps even romance. Some of these places are no longer accessible due to time: consider Paris in the 1920s or Shanghai in the 1930s. Beirut of the 1960s certainly deserves to join this club of elite metropolitan cities lost to time, though I would argue that the Beirut of today has regained some of its former cultural glory – if not all. It is the period after the fall in which the movie Beirut is set, covering the fictional kidnapping of a CIA station chief in 1982 and

Wyoming District Allows Teachers to Pack Heat

Teachers in the Park County School District of Wyoming can now apply to carry handguns in school. After an extended period of debate in which both sides expressed concerns, fears, and hope in allowing teachers to carry. Wyoming enables school districts to decide on whether or not teachers can carry a gun. The Park County School district’s seat is the Town of Cody, which famously features the Cody Firearms Museum. The school district voted to allow teachers to carry firearms in a 4-2 vote on Tuesday night. Wyoming is a Constitutional Carry state, but if teachers want to pack a

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
