DPMS G2 Hunter features, initial accuracy and Big 3 East

dpms-g2-hunter-on-matThe GII series from DPMS has been a huge success and for good reason, they redesigned their .308 AR platform and did a fantastic job.

We’ve covered the GII Recon in a previous article and it’s still doing very well, today we are going to take a look at the Compact Hunter of the same GII series.

The compact Hunter features a 16″ Lightweight teflon coated stainless barrel with a target crown, carbon fiber free float tube style hand guard and a collapsible B5 systems stock.  It also has the DPMS 2 stage match trigger as well along with Read more »

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.

Rapid Take Down Kit from Mid America Armament

maa rtd sideMid America Armament has a new Rapid Take Down Kit out featuring a free float rail with a quick release lever and matching barrel nut to replace your existing barrel nut.

The system allows you to go from a rifle broken down into several smaller components to a fully assembled ready to shoot rifle in under 30 seconds.

Caliber changes, from 5.56 to .300 blackout for example, can be accomplished in under a minute if you pick up an extra barrel nut.

In our preliminary testing it would appear that point of impact shifts are about 1.5″ or less at around 100 yards.

The full review, including more testing of the new Hexmag Series 2 magazines, is live on the 13C YouTube page

Canik TP9SF review

tp9sf sit talkOur review of the Canik TP9SF is live on YouTube.  The TP9SF is being imported by Century Arms and comes in at a very attractive price point.

From Cerakote finish on top of the phosphate finish to 18 round Mecgar magazines and a match grade barrel, this handgun deserves a closer look, we think you’ll agree.


BREAKING: Fast and Furious firearm possibly used in Paris Attacks.

paris-11a_3500551bAs if the bungled “Fast and Furious” debacle couldn’t get any worse, there are reports breaking that one of the firearms used in the November 2015 Paris terrorist attacks came from Phoenix, AZ and an individual with ties to the program.

fastandfuriousmapFor those not familiar with the “fast and furious” program the short version is the government ok’ed the sale of firearms to known criminals in the hopes of busting more criminals.  The overwhelming majority of cases had criminals getting away with weapons scot-free and little to know prosecutions.  These firearms have been linked to numerous crimes both in the US and abroad including the  murder of a US Border Patrol agent and one firearm winding up in the hands of a would be jihadist in Texas.

If that sounds outrageous, understand that Fast and Furious didn’t occur in a vacuum. Other “operations” with movie titles, such as Castaway, occurred all over the county and saw many weapons allowed to fall into the hands of criminals, including being sent out of the country.

It’s still a bit too early to tell if this firearm was a direct result of Fast and Furious but considering the information Judicial Watch is obtaining, I’d be putting money on it coming from the program.

We’ll have more information available on this when it becomes available both here and on our social media pages.
