Barrett Donates Rifles To Every Sheriff In Tenn.

From Barrett Firearms:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Barrett Firearms Donates Rifles to Every Tennessee County Sheriff Office or Department

(Sevierville, TN) At the Tennessee Sheriffs’ Association Annual Conference & Exhibition today, Barrett Firearms President Chris Barrett, shown photographed with Robertson County Sheriff Bill Holt, announced that his company is donating 95 Barrett REC7 DI rifles, one to each Tennessee county sheriff’s office or department.

“When the Barrett story is told, folks usually talk about the civilian shooters and militaries around the world that have chosen Barrett long-range precision rifles for more than three decades. Less-often mentioned is my father’s background as a county sheriff’s deputy, our 5.56 carbines and rifles, and the countless law enforcement agencies that choose Barrett. We want to highlight that legacy and show our strong support for law enforcement by donating these Barrett REC7 DI rifles to the sheriffs in our state,” Mr. Barrett said during remarks at the conference.

“As lifelong Tennesseans and builders of the Barrett Model 82A1/M107, the ‘Official State Rifle of the State of Tennessee,’ we are proud to build every one of these rifles in Tennessee. We believe that the sheriffs can use these rifles as they enforce the laws around this great state.”

Choosing A Strong Password Is Easier Than You Think

From EFF:

Randomly-generated passphrases offer a major security upgrade over user-chosen passwords. Estimating the difficulty of guessing or cracking a human-chosen password is very difficult. It was the primary topic of my own PhD thesis and remains an active area of research. (One of many difficulties when people choose passwords themselves is that people aren’t very good at making random, unpredictable choices.)

Measuring the security of a randomly-generated passphrase is easy. The most common approach to randomly-generated passphrases (immortalized by XKCD) is to simply choose several words from a list of words, at random. The more words you choose, or the longer the list, the harder it is to crack. Looking at it mathematically, for k words chosen from a list of length n, there are kn possible passphrases of this type. It will take an adversary about kn/2 guesses on average to crack this passphrase. This leaves a big question, though: where do we get a list of words suitable for passphrases, and how do we choose the length of that list?

In general choosing four five-letter words is better than one long word with number substitutions and some weird characters thrown in. It’s easier to remember and vastly harder for a computer to guess.

Academy Sports Caves to Pressure from Liberals, Pulls AR-15s

Academy Sports needs to show some backbone.

They’re a Texas family-owned company, I heard online that they were pulling ARs off the shelves under pressure from the Left, and I went to one in Arlington Texas to see for myself.

Yep, they pulled all their AR-15s from the display.

I talked to the manager, I was calm and polite, but I said, “You’re a Texas company. You have a responsibility to your customers, to Texas and to America. Show a little backbone. Don’t just cave at the first bit of pressure. I have six kids. I used to buy shoes and clothes here for my family. I’ll be shopping elsewhere. Please relay this message to those in charge.”

The manager said, “Well, we still sell ARs …”

Right.

American Made AK47s From Century Arms

From American Rifleman:

One such company that has been working to provide its customers with 100-percent American-made AKs for a while now is Century Arms. Among these offerings is the affordably priced Red Army Standard RAS47, a name that gives a nod back to the Cold War-era Soviet Union. which made the AKs one of the most ubiquitous small arms in modern history. This version of the rifle is modeled after the original Kalashnikov design with an eye toward reliability and a fair price.

McCain Wants More Modern Weapon Acquisition Process

From Military.com:

Sen. John McCain is recommending at the U.S. Army throw out its current plan to replace the M9 service pistol until it can decide upon a specific caliber and type of ammunition soldiers need.

The chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee blasted the Army’s Modular Handgun System, or MHS, effort in the latest in his “America’s Most Wanted: Indefensible” report series.

“The easiest solution would be to allow Army divisions or even brigade combat teams to select from handguns, ammunition and accessories that are already tested, approved and are being used in combat by units within the U.S. Special Operations Command and the Joint Special Operations Command,” according to the report.

New Jersey Confiscates WWII M1 Carbine

From NJ.com:

 A Cumberland County man cannot keep his grandfather’s World War II rifle because it is an illegal assault firearm, according to a Sept. 15 New Jersey Superior Court Appellate Division decision.

The M1 carbine could not be returned to him because it falls under the definition of an assault firearm, which is illegal to possess according to New Jersey law.

In a motion filed by Burt, he told the court that he acquired the rifle in 2006 from his grandfather, who served in World War II.

From Mosin To Modern Sporter

From Tactical Life:

Add that to the sheer numbers shipped and I think it’s perfectly permissible to ask the die-hard collectors, “Just how many of these millions of rifles do we really need to stick in museums and pass down for posterity in their ‘original’ military form?” Admittedly, I’ve never yet been able to bring myself to sporterize a classic Mauser or Enfield, but let’s be real here—there are more than enough Mosin-Nagants in varying grades and configurations out there to keep the collectors happy collecting and the sporterizers happy sporterizing.
