New Lawsuit Suggests FBI Cannot Be Trusted With Second Amendment Rights

Mon, 06/11/2018 - 18:25

In the wake of the 2015 mass murder at a church in Charleston, S.C., lawmakers have called for an end to the 72-hour background check rule. Opponents argue that giving the FBI unlimited time to complete a NICS check could indefinitely suspend a citizen’s Second Amendment rights, and now a new lawsuit is shedding light on just how incompetent the feds can be.

The HK MP5 vs. the Walther MPL – Alternative History

Fri, 06/08/2018 - 07:02

The Walther MPL is the ultimate example of a general utility submachine gun. In the roles filled by the wartime German MP40, American Grease Gun, Russian PPSh, and British Sten the MPL is quite literally ideal. The rate of fire is slow, and the gun is rugged and simple. By contrast, the MP5 fires much faster and is really a specialist’s weapon. In the hands of a trained operator, the MP5 puts a swarm of zippy little 9mm bullets into teacup-sized groups at bad breath ranges. When employed in a swamp or powdery desert environment, however, the complexity of the MP5 becomes a liability.

SIG MCX VIRTUS 300 AAC Swappable Barrel Review

Thu, 06/07/2018 - 21:39

Over the last 9 months of testing, the SIG MCX VIRTUS has proven to be a very reliable and useful weapon. In its 5.56 configurations, we saw it run in all weather conditions over the winter, a 2000 rounds suppressed test and many other shenanigans. The most impressive part to me was that we had a multi-configurable rifle, that consistently shot ½ MOA groups. This week, we finally got the long awaited 300 AAC barrel.
