I bet you didn’t see a headline in your local newspaper, or a lead story on television news this week about the Swiss rejecting a plan to restrict the ability of their citizens to lawfully own and keep fully automatic weapons in their homes. Amazingly, a French website tells us what our local gun hating media prefer to pretend did not happen, in an article headlined ‘Swiss overwhelmingly reject plan to tighten gun control in […]
You might have heard of the apparent assassination of a high ranking member of Hamas by what was subsequently claimed to be a team of Mossad agents from Israel, who intercepted the Hamas terrorist in Dubai. This took place in January 2010. Here now is a fascinating and very detailed account of what transpired, that makes for reading that is as interesting as any James Bond story ever was. But – a word of caution. […]
Here’s an interesting couple of videos – the first being an interview with a homeowner in the Denver CO area who was forced to defend himself against three intruders who broke into his house one night. At least one of the intruders was armed; the homeowner defended himself successfully with his own pistol, and subsequently was interviewed on a local news program.

I came across this in one of my sweeps through the internet. Unfortunately, I can’t seem to find a source for them. I guess I could make my own. Instant-glue my PPK to my mouse? Strap it on with duct tape?
The executive branch of the US Government is falling over itself to push Egypt’s President, Hosni Mubarak, out, and are assuring us that this will be a Good Thing for Egypt, for the US, and for the world as a whole. Apparently we should ignore the fact that for almost 30 years, Mubarak has been a sensible force for good and moderation in the Middle East. He was the first leader in the region to […]
I went shooting with an acquaintance the other night for the first time. He could out-shoot me every which way, and did an excellent job of getting rounds close or exactly on the target bullseye, at quite impressive ranges. But. And it is a big but. Although he could shoot very accurately, he would not be a good person to take lessons from in learning the art of prudent firearms-based self defense. Firstly, he was […]
