Like you always do, you’ve done your “homework” and researched the crap out of your next purchase: be it a Smart TV, a camera, handgun or tires for your truck. And as a result of your data collection efforts, you eventually decide on an item knowing that it has “almost” all the features and qualities you had on your wish list.  It is a pretty good bet that the guys who engineered the new SAR 9 from SAR USA have felt the same way.

Tampa police release video of person of interest in serial killings investigation (VIDEO)

General Gun News - Tue, 10/31/2017 - 11:00

The Tampa Police Department released new video footage last week purportedly showing a person fleeing a murder scene in the city’s southeastern Seminole Heights neighborhood earlier this month.

Interim Police Chief Brian Dugan said during a press conference Thursday the department patched together images from multiple security cameras to create the nearly 2-minute video of a person in a black hooded sweatshirt walking down the street toward the bus stop where 22-year-old Benjamin Edward Mitchell was shot and killed Oct. 9 — the first in a string of three random shootings police say are linked.

“I’ve come up with four reasons why this person is running,” Dugan told reporters. “One, they may be late for dinner. Two, they’re out exercising. Three, they heard gunshots. And number four, they just murdered Benjamin Mitchell.”

Dugan encouraged neighborhood residents to study the footage and come forward with any identifying information. The person is not yet considered a suspect, Dugan clarified — just a “person of interest.”

“It appears that they are walking toward the area where Benjamin Mitchell was and then they are running from the scene,” Dugan said. “If that were me in that video, I have to believe that my neighbors would be able to identify me.”

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and Crime Stoppers of Tampa Bay upped the reward for information in the case to $35,000. The killer’s two other victims — Monica Caridad Hoffa, 32, and Anthony Naiboa, 20, died within 11 days of Mitchell. Naiboa’s body was discovered Oct. 20 just 200 yards the Ellicott Street bus stop where Mitchell was killed.

Anonymous tips can be submitted online through Crime Stoppers of Tampa Bay or by calling 1-800-873-8477 (TIPS).

What happens when you fire a .22LR from a .22WMR gun? (VIDEO)

General Gun News - Tue, 10/31/2017 - 10:45

Doing the live-fire research so you don’t have to, 22Plinkster tests the smaller Long Rifle round out of a revolver cylinder chambered for Winchester Magnum Rimfire.

While he shows it is possible by using a budget Heritage single-action, ‘Plink says the practice is not really that smart as you lose a lot of velocity and risk some kinda funny things. How funny? Like case separation funny.

Which in hindsight, just isn’t that funny.

Myrtle Beach gun show draws group of protesters (VIDEO)

General Gun News - Tue, 10/31/2017 - 10:15

WMBFNews.com, Myrtle Beach/Florence SC, Weather

For the second time in six months, members of the Horry County Democratic Party Gun Sense Committee stood outside of a Myrtle Beach gun show to show support for stricter gun laws.

The group is pushing for background checks on all gun purchases and to close what’s been dubbed as the “Charleston Loophole,” named after the 2015 Charleston church shooting that left nine dead. The man responsible for that shooting was able to buy a gun after a three-day waiting period, despite his background check being incomplete.

Protester Bennie Swanson said the group is trying to save lives, while fellow protester Rosemary Wolf expressed frustration over a lack of action.

“There’s been absolutely nothing done since we’ve been out here six months ago. And we need to get legislatures to do something,” said protester Rosemary Wolfe.

“I’m not saying we have to prevent people from having guns,” Wolfe added. “But certainly there’s no need to have people walking around with automatics and semiautomatics.”
