Shot Show 2020 is officially kicks off tomorrow. The whole firearm industry converges on the Vegas Strip for the annual convention. Shot Show is the industry event of 2020 to rule them all. Just as Sauron’s ring did long before.
This year has been filled with many twists and turns within the firearms community. It has been a year of growth, innovation, prosperity within the industry.
Back in early August the El Paso shooting happened where twenty-two people tragically lost their lives at the hands of Patrick Crusius. A month later CEO Doug McMillion released an internal memo to Wal-Mart employees regarding ending the sale of firearms and ammunition at Wal-Mart locations. The end of firearm and ammunition sales at Wal-Mart will take place once stores have depleted its current stock of both.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone around the world who celebrates this time of year. Hopefully, everyone is enjoying family and friends along with some good food.
Banning guns is not the answer. Violence will persist and people who want to do these things will find a way. Censorship is not the answer. Banning people there freedom of speech will only fuel the flames.
Time is enduring. It is lasting. Time has the ability to soften and lose the luster and veracity of our memories. Time has the ability to jade us from the horrors of the past by our disconnection from the moment. Time is enduring and will continue well after humanity is gone.
Today, the Marine Corps turns two hundred and forty four today. The Marine Corps has been one of the greatest accomplishments and moments in my personal history.
Last week, Sony released details on the next PlayStation. The new PlayStation will be called the PS5, (which is a surprise to no one). The new PS5 will be out Holiday season 2020 just as the new Xbox which is codename Scarlett.
Tomorrow, House Democrats will try to push bill HR 1296 through the House and into the senate. The bill would reintroduce the 1994 assault rifle ban. While also banning nearly all semiautomatic rifles, as well as AR and AK pistols, and institute “buy back program” for your property.
Today, marks the 18th anniversary of the September 11th attacks. A day that will live in infamy in American history. On that morning 19 Al-Qaeda terrorists took control of four flights and caused tremendous loss of life on American soil. Two of those flights destroyed a symbol of American society and prosperity, The Twin Towers in New York City.
What if you didn’t have to ball on a budget? What would you build? Most of us when we build a rifle are always prioritizing what is important in the rifle build. We can usually splurge here or there on certain parts of the build. You might spend a little extra cash on the barrel, trigger, or BCG. You always look to make a highly optimized rifle but, it doesn’t have that full touch of complete. At, least I have that feeling during a build.
Yesterday, I read an article from USA Today which states, San Francisco, declares NRA a ‘domestic terrorist organization’ in resolution. When I read this headline. I honestly couldn’t believe it. I honestly thought it was fake news.
This Labor Day weekend there has been plenty of firearm companies with some great deals to offer. A lot of the companies will be mainstays where you know you can always find a good deal.
Happy Labor Day everyone. I hope everyone is enjoying the day off. Hopefully, spending time with family or friends. If not just enjoying a relaxing day off of work. While your chilling and waiting for that food to get off the grill or just browsing the web.
One of my greatest concerns as a firearms owner is the security of my firearms. I want them to be safely stored and easily accessible throughout my home. To be hidden and locked away in plain sight without it screaming, “Gun!” I am always searching for innovation within firearm security.
Many would tell you the pen is mightier than the sword. In many ways the written word is a deadly adversary. A pen is the tool of a writer and of a creative mind. Upon paper a writer let’s us into their imagination, hopes, dreams, and fears.
