Naroh N1 Review

From The Truth About Guns:

When I heard about the Naroh N1, I wasn’t expecting it to be as small as it was. Note the photo above. That’s my GLOCK 42 in .380 ACP on top of the Naroh N1 9X19. I swapped my G43 with the G42 because the G43 was just a little too big to boot carry.  I can boot-carry the N1.

Although the N1 is Naroh’s first 100% in-house-designed firearm, the same folks have been wholesale suppliers for other people’s gun parts for years now. They already have the machine capability, the in-house design team, and several patents.

Gay Community Has Many Reasons To Be Pro Gun

From The Washington Post:

I don’t understand why the LGBTQ community is so hostile toward the Second Amendment. I’d like to ask my fellow gays to take a moment and consider this issue through a different lens. I long for the day when the gay community will galvanize its significant political might and work toward making practical changes that would let gays better protect themselves when laws don’t.

NZ Cop Admits Registration Necessary To Get Guns

From Bearing Arms:

Chris Cahill, with the country’s Police Association, said it’s not clear if this year’s budgeted funding for the buy-back would be adequate because New Zealand (like America) does not have an official gun registry.
“We really have no idea how many of these firearms are out there in New Zealand,” Cahill told the Herald. “Which really points to how bad our firearms legislation has been, that we have let this get out of control.”

Handgun License Requirement Is Backdoor Registration

From Guns.com:

The legislation, backed by Dems in both the House and Senate, would encourage more states to adopt licensing schemes like Connecticut’s handgun purchasing law, which requires a special renewable permit to purchase any revolver or pistol. Dubbed the Handgun Purchaser Licensing Act, the bill was introduced by U.S. Sen. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland and Senators Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy of Connecticut along with U.S. Reps. Jahana Hayes, D-Conn and Jamie Raskin, D-Md.

AR Sales Increase Ahead of Washington Gun Law

From The Truth About Guns:

We’ve talked about Washington’s Initiative 1639 before. It puts a host of new restrictions on gun owners, including requiring a permanent waiver of their HIPAA rights before buying a handgun or semi-automatic rifle.

Ahead of this, Washingtonians are buying up everything they can get their hands on. It will be interesting to watch Washington going forward, as this is in many ways an unprecedented restriction. A number of lawsuits are already winding their way through the courts. This will be worth watching.

Get Fit and Stay Armed

From Guns.com:

Perfecting that beach body isn’t always easy, especially if you want to be comfortable and protected at the same time. You don’t have to sacrifice fitness for protection though if you know what to look for. Guns like the Glock 42, Sig P365, and Ruger LCP are all very concealable and pair well with a plethora of holsters designed for workout. Deciding which holster and gun combo that will work for you is as much dependent on the types of movement you plan on doing as it is the caliber you like.

Using 3-Gun Matches To Stay In Shape

From Guns.com:

3-Gun competition is unique in that you use three different shooting platforms, but just like a lot of other shooting sports it gets you off the shooting line and moving around. “It’s a pretty physical endeavor… if you want to shoot open and you at to race really hard you have to be in shape,” said Jerry Miculek.
It’s not just the physical limits you’ll be pushing, it’s as much a mental game as it is a physical one.

Safe Students Act

From Guns.com:

The Safe Students Act, first announced in 2007 by U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, has been rebooted by Kentucky Republican Thomas Massie this week and re-introduced with seven co-sponsors. The move would repeal the 30-year-old “no guns allowed” zone around public, private, and parochial elementary and high schools nationwide. Backers argue the bill is needed to allow local governments and school boards to set their own firearms policy without Washington red tape.

Stag Arms Leaving Connecticut

From Guns.com:

After more than 15 years in New Britain Connecticut, AR maker Stag Arms said they are pulling stumps for somewhere with “significant support for the firearms industry.”
The announcement, posted last Friday, said the move is part of the company’s “strategic initiative to significantly improve the overall customer experience.” While the new location has not been selected, Stag says their Board of Directors has “narrowed down the options to a short list of vibrant communities where there is significant support for the firearms industry.”
