Ohio House passes ‘stand your ground’ legislation

NRA-ILA News - 7 hours 7 min ago
By a 64-26, mostly party-line vote Wednesday, the Ohio House passed a GOP-sponsored “stand your ground” bill that eliminates any “duty to retreat” before using force in self-defense, shifts the burden of proof to the state in self-defense cases, and loosens a number of Ohio gun-control rules – including allowing individuals to challenge local gun-control ordinances in court.

Honored American Veterans Afield introduces a new program under its Learn to Shoot Again devision, launching the Long Range Shooting Program.

Aided by injured training instructors, the Long Range Shooting Program is designed to help injured students return to the outdoor sports they enjoyed pre-injury. Students with hand amputations, broken backs, shoulder reconstructions, traumatic brain injuries and other injuries are able to learn new skills to help them tackle long range targets.

The inaugural class was held in October over the course of three-days. The course allowed 11 injured veterans to shoot out to 900 yards. Companies like Sig Sauer, Daniel Defense, Vortex, Leupold, Savage, DPMS and Kestrel all donated products to the LTSA division to allow students to practice with the best equipment available, according to HAVA.

“Long range shooting skills are just one of the lessons that our LTSA instructors bring to these students who deserve everything that we can do to inspire and assist in their recovery,” HAVA Chairman Tom Taylor, said in a news release. “The fact that our instructors have each personally gone through the re-habilitation process after the loss of a limb or other severe injury is a real-life example for the student that recovery from tragedy is possible, and that the best part of life may still be in their future. We believe that our efforts can make the ultimate difference with a disabled veteran who might otherwise not be able to fulfill their long-term potential for happiness.”

Convenience store chain to hire ‘hybrid’ clerks that carry guns on the job

General Gun News - 8 hours 27 min ago

QuikTrip wants to expand their armed clerk program (Photo: QuikTrip)

A Tulsa-based chain of convenience stores is looking for employees with a particular set of skills.

The QuikTrip Corporation, with some 750 locations in a dozen states, is advertising for full-time store clerks in the Tulsa area who double as armed security. In short, besides an ability to “provide quality customer service,” among the primary role of the $35 per hour job is to protect the location and those in it. The chain has reportedly trialed the concept in Wichita, Kansas and it has already seen success.

“Our employees like it, customers really like it, and we’re seeing all kinds of (security and crime-related) incidents just plummet,” QuikTrip spokesman Mike Thornbrugh told Tulsa World. “Customers really like it that we’re trying something that’s making a difference.”

The hybrid employees won’t replace full-time outside security and off-duty police used by the company but will augment those as well as other safety guidelines. Applicants for the positions will need to be able to pass a physical and, as a minimum, have a high school diploma, CPR certification and some sort of armed security or police certification and background coupled with a few years of prior experience.

“We’re just going to have to take matters into our own hands and still utilize and partner with Tulsa Police Department and Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office, but there’s not enough of them to do the job,” said Thornbrugh.

In July, a Tulsa police officer and a suspect were wounded in an officer-involved shooting at a local QuikTrip.

Pushing out to 500 yards with the Ruger Mini-14 (VIDEO)

General Gun News - 8 hours 56 min ago

In an exercise to test out the practical accuracy from the humble and old school Ruger Mini-14, a shooter and spotter give it a go out to the 500 mark.

Josh Mazzola and Henry Chan team up for the test from 9-Hole Reviews. The wood-stocked Mini-14 used for the test was topped with a Trijicon Accupoint 1-6x Mildot optic on a Warne mount with LaRue rings. Suppressed, the 5.56mm plinker was also fitted with an Accu-Strut bolt-on accurizing device and what looks to be a Harris bipod.

Starting at the 150-yard mark, they work on torso-sized targets using IMI M193 55-grain ammo on a breezy day.

The final analysis? Watch the footage.

Shooting drill of the day: Vigr Training Scales (VIDEO)

General Gun News - 9 hours 26 min ago

The Scales drill from Vigr Training is designed to work two important skillsets in shooting a handgun: running the trigger and visual processing. The drill requires 15 rounds total – three shots in five circles and only clean shots count – and scores are dependent on overall time.

For success, the drill requires a shooter to vary trigger pace. It forces them to work on deliberate trigger manipulation on the smallest circles to faster trigger manipulation for the larger targets.

Simultaneously, a shooter gets to work through an entire spectrum of visual interactions. This begins with conventional sight alignment and sight picture. Then, they move to flash front site and finally through gun indexing.

The drill changes by simply reversing the order in which a shooter engages the circles or turning orientation of the target. To increase the difficulty add reloads and increase the round count.

In a limited number of rounds a shooter has a great exercise to test a variety of core handgun skills. This not only saves money but also time. The printable Scales Target can be found a Vigr Training’s website.

Hogue adds the Sig Sauer P365 to its list of handgun grip models, introducing the HandALL Beavertail Grip for the P365.

Installed by slipping the HandALL over the Sig P365’s frame, the HandALL Beavertail eventually seats int position offering a more comfortable fit for shooter’s hands. The HandALL is equipped with finger grooves that deliver a more instinctive grip on the gun, according to Hogue.

“The high capacity SIG Sauer P365 has taken the industry by storm,” grip sleeve designer Matt Hogue said in a news release. “The effortless carry and concealability of this firearm makes it a top choice for today’s compact carry shooters. The precision features of our new grip sleeves enhance the comfort and grip of this already super functional firearm.”

The HandALL Beavertail is constructed from a durable thermoplastic elastomer compound, allowing the rubber to age “very gracefully” maintaining a tacky feel through its lifespan. Hogue says the grip will not harden or crack with use, keeping its integrity over time. Using a Cobblestone texture, the HandALL aims to provide a non-slip, non-irritating style.

Available through Hogue in black, OD green, flat dark earth, aqua, pink and purple the HandALL Beavertail for the Sig Sauer P365 is priced at $10.95.

Angstadt Arms shows off SCW-9 Sub Compact Weapon (PHOTOS)

General Gun News - 9 hours 56 min ago

North Carolina-based Angstadt Arms this week released the details of the gun the delivered to compete in the U.S. Army Sub Compact Weapon Program.

Dubbed the SCW-9, the platform was submitted as Angstadt’s entry — along with those from five other companies — for evaluation for use by Army personal security details. Guns proposed for the program had to be a “highly concealable” SCW “capable of engaging threat personnel with a high volume of lethal and accurate fires at close range with minimal collateral damage.”

Aiming to meet those guidelines, the SCW-9 is some 14.7-inches long overall when its telescoping buttstock is collapsed. Featuring a 4-inch barrel with a three-lug adapter for suppressors, the 9mm sub gun takes double stack Glock pattern mags and weighs in at 4-pounds flat.

The SCW-9 has ambidextrous controls including magazine release, safety selector, charging handle and bolt catch and release

Select-fire, it has fully ambidextrous controls and can fire at 1,100 rounds per minute on full auto. Importantly, the gun uses a shortened multi-caliber AR-15 stock system.

Besides the current 9mm platform, Angstadt says they have tested the shortened stock system in both 5.56mm and .300 AAC and are working on a pistol brace version for the U.S. commercial market.

The Army currently uses HK MP5s for personal security detachments for high-ranking officers but is looking to upgrade. In line with that, the new SCW program originally involved more than a dozen companies to include Beretta, Brügger & Thomet, Colt, CMMG, CZ, HK, Noveske, PTR, Sig Sauer and Zenith Firearms.

The Most Epic Response to the #ThisIsMyLane Battle Between Physicians and the NRA

The story behind Sig Sauer’s M17 Tomb of the Unknown pistols (VIDEO)

General Gun News - 10 hours 26 min ago

The gravity of standing as a Sentinel over the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Ceremony requires a special gun.

To understand the importance of the mission facing the select guard provided by the oldest infantry regiment in the Army in securing the Tomb, Tim Butler with Sig Sauer went there and spoke to the elite soldiers performing the Sentinel duty. Butler explains in the above video from the New Hampshire-based company that everything to do with the four ceremonial M17 handguns was deliberately planned.

The high-gloss finish reflects the polish and attention to detail shown by the Sentinels, such as in their belts and shoes.

The wood grips, crafted from the decks of the USS Olympia — the cruiser that brought the first Unknown Soldier back home from Europe after World War I — were meant to be historic of older weapons and complement the wood stocks of the M14s used by the rest of the guard.

Marble dust from the Tomb itself is incorporated into the sights of the firearm while the sight plate replicates the images of the three Greek figures at the site. “In my career, I’ve designed guns for Presidents, celebrities, all kinds of people, but from an honor, there is no greater honor,” said Butler, a Marine veteran, of his work on the Tomb M17s.

Sig presented the guns to the 3rd Infantry Regiment at a ceremony on Oct. 11, and have been used by the Tomb Guard’s sergeants ever since. The company said in a statement that they are “incredibly honored to have a place in a deeply humbling historical event.”

Deputy survives wild roadside shootout that leaves car riddled (VIDEO)

General Gun News - 10 hours 56 min ago

A man currently on a hold by immigration officials was injured in a nearly minute-long exchange of gunfire with an Arkansas lawman. Luis Cobos-Cenobio, 29, is in the custody of the Washington County Sheriff’s Department after he was wounded in the shootout last Sunday with an area deputy.

According to a statement from the agency, released along with dashcam and bystander footage of the shooting, Washington County Corporal Brett Thompson attempted to stop Cobos-Cenobio for a traffic violation in Tontitown. Once the man finally pulled over on a narrow country road and Thompson exited his vehicle, Cobos-Cenobio can be seen opening his own car door and immediately opening fire with a handgun.

Advancing on Thompson’s marked SUV while the deputy sought cover, the man can be seen shooting around the vehicle and, later, through the windscreen. After 53-seconds of gunplay, Cobos-Cenobio is seen returning to his car, a 2008 Saturn, and speeding away a short distance to let a female passenger out of the vehicle. The female approaches Thompson and is taken into custody.

Cobos-Cenobio was pursued by numerous local and state agencies, before he was arrested in nearby Springdale, after again exchanging fire with officers. Treated for a wound to the left arm and shoulder at an area hospital, he was released to Washington County deputies.

No officers were injured in the incident, although Thompson’s SUV is shown in footage released by the agency to be riddled with bullets. The officers involved in the shooting are on administrative leave pending an investigation by state police.

The Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that Cobos-Cenobio has been charged with a host of felonies to include four counts of attempted capital murder, and is being held on a $500,000 bond. The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement have also placed a hold on the man.

Gearcraft Holsters crafts snazzy IWB for Honor Guard pistol

General Gun News - 11 hours 26 min ago

The GearCraft IWB was one of the first holsters to offer compatibility with the Honor Defense Honor Guard Pistol series. (Photo: Jacki Billings/Guns.com)

Created for inside-the-waistband carry, the Gearcraft IWB was one of the first to deliver compatibility with Honor Guard pistols. Having reviewed the Honor Guard pistol series in the past, I was excited to take the Gearcraft IWB hoslter for a test run to see if this Kydex build could really stand up against repeated use and concealment with the Honor Guard pistol.

The Basics: What’s new with the IWB?

The Gearcraft IWB is a Kydex construction featuring a molded design that is specifically cut for each pistol it serves – in this case, it is molded for the Honor Defense Honor Guard Pistol. The Kydex is a thicker cut, lending itself to a more durable creation built to withstand the rigors of repeated use.

Gearcraft brings a bevy of options for concealed carry consumers, allowing customers to customize their rig to their liking. In a sea of black Kydex holsters, the options are a perk. Though my IWB shipped with a plastic belt clip, consumers can opt for belt loops or a UtiliClip depending on preference. Gun owners also have a choice of color or pattern, subverting the usual all-black tactical scheme. For this review, I was sent both a standard black and a woodland pattern in a subtle yet feminine robin’s egg blue.

The IWB features rounded and smoothed edges for more comfortable concealment. (Photo: Jacki Billings/Guns.com)

GearCraft also grants consumers the ability to choose sweat guard height, offering a full sweat guard, mid-guard or no guard at all. Rounding the options, IWB shoppers can choose compatibility with lights, RMR optics, suppressor height sights and even threaded barrels. In short, Gearcraft really puts the control in the hands of concealed carriers, letting them fine tune the holster before it ever arrives at their door.

Adjustability: Fine tuning the holster

The holster benefits from a few design tweaks that elevate its performance, making it a suitable choice for the Honor Guard pistol. The first is its adjustable retention. Retention is one of the most important aspects of a good holster, ensuring the pistol is safely retained in the holster until needed. The IWB achieves this via a molded construction, clinging to the nooks and crannies on the Honor Guard pistol, as well as a screw located on the bottom of the rig. This innocuous screw adjusts retention, allowing for the holster to be tightened or loosened according to user preference. This addition puts the onus on the user to determine how securely the holster holds the handgun.

Despite its thicker Kydex build, the Gearcraft IWB conceals well when paired with the Honor Guard pistol. (Photo: Jacki Billings/Guns.com)

The second perk of the IWB holster is its belt clip. Able to cant 0 to 20-degrees via two screws located at the top of the holster, the belt clip again gives users the option to personalize their set-up. When carrying in the 4 o’clock position, I prefer a slight cant to my IWB to aid in drawing and with the IWB I can easily achieve that. While I generally prefer a stiffer belt clip made of metal – as plastic wears quickly over time – Gearcraft again opts for a thicker build resulting in a more durable design that endures repeated use.

Concealed Carry: How does it perform?

I was initially impressed by how sturdy this holster is. In my possession for over a year, the Gearcraft has suffered a few falls at my clumsy hands and has still managed to keep itself together. The tradeoff to such a durable design, though, is often concealment. In the case of the IWB it’s a little thicker than most my other holsters and on a small-frame like myself any extra thickness quickly becomes noticeable; however, Gearcraft has craftily constructed its IWB in such a manner that it still maintains concealability despite its girth.

The IWB is user-adjustable for both cant and retention. (Photo: Jacki Billings/Guns.com)

Paired with the Honor Guard pistol, created with concealment in mind, the Gearcraft IWB easily slipped under blouses and sweaters disappearing against my side. A little heavier than some of my other holsters, the IWB necessitated a solid belt but any good holster/pistol combo should be supported by a sturdy belt.

Gearcraft has taken time to ensure all edges on the holster are rounded, preventing any discomfort or poking while carrying. The addition of a high sweat guard also lends itself to comfort, preventing the gun from rubbing against my skin.

The IWB opts for a plastic belt clip that, like the holster itself, is thickly made for durability. (Photo: Jacki Billings/Guns.com)

Cut for the Honor Guard, the pistol moved like butter out of the holster during the draw with no advanced wrestling moves required. The draw was smooth and efficient each time as was reholstering – thanks to the cant of the IWB.

Final Thoughts

The IWB holster I received was free from bells and whistles, but it offered all the basics a good concealed carry holster should – a sturdy molded design, secured trigger area and retention. Catering to concealed carriers with customizations, the Gearcraft IWB gives consumers the ability to craft a holster specifically for their own needs and budget. With a base price of $59.99, the Gearcraft IWB is a solid option for Honor Guard carriers, or other brands, looking for some style in their concealed carry get-up.

Ohio sees record number of carry licenses issued, renewed

General Gun News - 11 hours 56 min ago

New data shows there were 656,000 active Ohio CHLs in circulation earlier this year, an all-time high. (Photo: Kimber)

New figures from Ohio’s attorney general show that the Buckeye State issued more carry licenses in the second quarter of the year than ever before.

Attorney General Mike DeWine’s office said that 21,130 licenses to carry a concealed handgun were issued and another 29,243 renewed last quarter, for a total of 50,373 granted. When compared to the first quarter report which saw a combined total of 45,848 issued, the increase was more than 10 percent.

For an even greater disparity, figures from the second quarter of 2008 — 10 years ago — saw just 22,721 licenses issued or renewed.

Gun rights advocates in the state emphasized the new figures set records — marking the first time Ohio Sheriffs issued over 50,000 licenses in a single quarter, and further that the statistic of 656,000 active Ohio CHLs in circulation is another high, representing one out of 13 Ohioans.

“Concealed carry is mainstream, common sense and close to most people on a daily basis,” said Jim Irvine, Buckeye Firearms Association President. “It works so well that most people are blissfully unaware that people around them are carrying guns.”

Irvine stresses that in the 14 years Ohio has had a concealed carry law in effect, the practice has become accepted. “License-holders, like gun owners in general, are not extremists as the anti-gun rights crowd claims. They are men and women, liberal and conservative and every ethnic and religious background. They are honorable citizens who want the means of protection from real dangers.”

The new figures predate a recent change in state law to allow military veterans and active duty servicemembers to have their CHL fees waived, a move that is likely to spur even higher carry rates. Further, the law, which took effect earlier this month, allows for military training to be accepted in lieu of an eight hour mandated safety course.

It’s not just Ohio that is seeing a bump in numbers. The Crime Prevention Research Center, which tracks concealed carry statistics, said in August that there were more than 17.25 million such permits nationwide, an all-time high and a nearly three-fold increase over the past decade.

The SOCOM260-TI and SOCOM260-RC2 are both available through SureFire with the SOCOM260-Ti retailing for $1,349 and the SOCOM260-RC2 priced at $1,199.
