Black Friday 2016 Firearm Sales Break record. Again.

rows of AR15sOn November 25th 2016, a day known to retailers and consumers as “Black Friday”, Americans bought enough firearms to arm every single member of the United States Marine Corps.  Again.

Last Black Friday Americans purchased 185,354 firearms according to the FBI … well in actuality those were just the NICS background checks conducted by the FBI on that day.  The number of firearms actually purchased on that day would be significantly higher, both in 2015 and in 2016.

The 185,713 NICS checks conducted are per transaction and when those firearms are actually transferred.  For those not familiar there are two parts to why the number of firearms purchased that day will be much higher.

First, more than one firearm can be purchased on a single 4473, the document used to record the information about the sale and the approval number from the FBI in regards to the NICS check.

Second tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands,,purchased firearms online that day.  Those online purchases won’t start showing up on NICS checks for at least 2 days as those firearms must be shipped to a local Federal Firearms License (FFL) dealer and then picked up in person after the background check is completed by the local FFL.

trump-nraMany predicted, with the election of Donald Trump, a slower Black Friday for gun sales.  Currently what little coverage this story is getting by the major news outlets continues to whitewash the numbers by saying buyers are “still scared” and “uncertain” in regards to more possible gun control legislation.

Sorry, that’s not the case.  The truth is more and more Americans are getting involved in taking an active role in their own self defense as well as enjoy the sporting side of the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

That fact is clearly evidenced by the amount of new owners, more licensees to carry being issued than ever before and the long over due surge in female firearms ownership, not to mention continued records sales numbers.

Self defense and possessing the means to defend yourself and your family is an American Birthright and I am so proud that more of my fellow countrymen and women are exercising that Right.  Be it on “Black Friday” or any other day.

Now get out there and encourage any new gun owners you might know to acquire some training to not just safely use their firearm at the range but also to learn how to defend themselves with it too.

Florida CCW holder shoots suspect beating Sheriff’s Deputy

lee-county-i75-2Breaking news out of Florida:

A Licensed Concealed Carrier in Florida shot and killed a man beating a Lee County Sheriff’s Deputy today.

After a high speed pursuit that reportedly topped 120mph the suspect was finally stopped on a ramp off of I-75 near Estero, FL.

Witnesses report that the Deputy and suspect exited their vehicles nearly simultaneously and the suspect immediately charged the deputy “violently throwing him on the ground and proceeded to beat him”.  Other witnesses confirm the suspect had mounted the deputy and was “beating the officer to death”.

The CCW holder was driving past when he saw the suspect beating the deputy and exited his car and proceeded to order the suspect to stop.  When the suspect continued beating the deputy the law abiding Citizen fired 3 rounds.  The suspect would be pronounced dead at the scene.

The deputy has already been released from the hospital and expected to make a full recovery.

We’ll have more information on this as it unfolds on our Facebook Page .

***News outlets are reporting they are looking “into the legality of the CCW holders actions”.  As a former Florida resident I can tell you with the information currently being reported that this CCW holder acted fully within the law by using deadly force to stop this heinous attack.

AMTAC Suppressors 9mm Hornet at the Big 3 East

amtac-hornet-9mmWe take a look at the new 9mm Hornet with Adam from AMTAC suppressors in our latest video on the 13C YouTube Channel

The 9mm Hornet is an “over the barrel” silencer allowing for a shorter over all length on your rifle by placing a portion of the silencer back over your barrel which means the Hornet only adds about 4″ to the Over All Length of your rifle or carbine even though it’s total OAL is 7.7″.  It has a single piece machined baffle and fits under many existing handguards.

You can find more information about the 9mm Hornet at AMTAC and more information about the Big 3 East HERE .

Indiana Right to Hunt Amendment on the ballot this November, 2016

indiana_state_capitol_buildingThis November Hoosiers will have a chance to vote on Public Question 1, an Amendment to State Constitution protecting the Right to hunt, fish and harvest wildlife.

When this passes Indiana would join 19 other States who have taken steps to try and ensure un-elected bureaucrats can no longer unilaterally pass new regulations without first putting the issues before the elected representatives of the People.

The opposition to this amendment is truly pulling out all the stops to try and defeat it.  Making absurd assertions like the bill could be bad for private property owners, nothing could be further from the truth.

As a private property owner myself, I see nothing that would even remotely affect my property Rights or existing trespass laws.  In fact, read for yourself:

“This section shall not be construed to modify any provision of law relating to trespass or property rights.”

Other absurdities make a leap that because the NRA-ILA is supporting this amendment that some how means they “want more gun sales”.  Anyone paying attention right now knows that gun sales are at an all time high and have been for multiple years now.  This is simply false and a distraction from the real issues.

Keep in mind even the NRA can’t get a vote of 95-1  in the House of Representatives to happen by itself.  The Citizens of the State of Indiana did that.

One other distraction is that this would some how affect animals on the endangered species list.  That is completely and patently false.

While I do practice predator control for coyotes, hunting has never really been “my thing”.  In fact I haven’t hunted or fished for anything anything in years.  Not that I’m opposed to it, I just haven’t had the time to dedicate to it.  For those who aren’t familiar with hunting, it isn’t as straight forward as some would make it seem.

That said, people have Rights and even if it’s not a Right I’m currently exercising, I’ll fight to defend it.

Please vote YES on the Amendment to protect the Rights of your fellow Hoosiers this November.
