Matt Emmons said something fascinating the other day. He said it in response to a hard question about a tragedy. Emmons is a member of the U.S. Olympic shooting team. He, and another member of the team, were asked about their feelings concerning the terrible movie-theater shooting in Aurora, Colo. They all knew the question was coming. They have dedicated their lives to shooting, and so they have often been asked about gun control and gun safety and such things. More

FINALLY, a gun lubricant exists that can withstand the most extreme conditions.
After using Safari Charlie Gun Lube Plus, Floro Lavalle with Sierra Outfitters in Argentina reported cleanings were much easier, they were needed less frequently and field jamming went down to almost non-existent. While these statements may seem generic and boring, consider that they shoot on average 2000-5000 rounds per day per gun, OVER 1 MILLION ROUNDS PER YEAR, and pair that with Lavalle’s full season of using Safari Charlie Gun Lube Plus. His report was an 83% reduction in repair/replacement costs. MORE...

The first of what will be three reports says many people in the chain of command at ATF are responsible, but the investigation singled out five key figures in the controversy. More

    Should Congress revise our nation's gun laws? No
    The Denver Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    After Columbine, Colorado enacted eight gun law reforms. All are founded on the principle that guns in the wrong hands are very dangerous, and guns in the right hands protect public safety. One of the new laws forbids adults to transfer guns to minors without parental consent. Another prohibits straw purchases (a legal buyer obtaining a gun on behalf of a prohibited person). More
