The overall tone of the report in negative, but not as bad as I was expecting:
The guys at EveryDayNoDaysOff.com and TheTruthAboutGuns.com were not satisfied with how the test was conducted. Mythbusters is a fascinating show, but they some times show their naivete with tests like these.
An editor at the Washington Times is documenting her attempt to attain a handgun in the nation’s capitol.
My quest to get a legal handgun in Washington, D.C. feels daunting. I went to the D.C. Firearms Registration office two weeks ago to start the process of getting a legal gun by picking up a 22-page packet of forms and instructions.
The second amendment says “…the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed”. The rules and regulations do just that, infringe. These laws are intended to keep guns out of the hands of criminals, but why would any criminal attempt to get a gun in such a manner when they could go buy one on the black market. Laws never prevent anyone from committing an act, they are only used for punishment after the fact.
The basic premise for The Red Zone, a one day class I recently attended in Camden, Tennessee was that during an actual life or death encounter there are far more things that should not be shot than those than should be. Johnny Jihad is evil and can shoot up the landscape. You are the good guy and cannot do so. David Biggers former U.S. Army Officer and dedicated student of the gun led a dozen men and women through several drills designed to force the shooter to fire their defensive pistols in a deliberate and discriminating manner.
Up Close and Personal
The FBI compiles the most thorough statistics of actual gunfights in the United States. According to the 2009 stats, 19 of the 48 officers murdered in the line of duty where a firearm was used were 0-5 feet from their attacker. We’ve all accepted the 21 foot average, but the truth seems to be that 21 feet is more likely to be the outer limit than the minimum.
Smith and Wesson has introduced a new revolver chambered in three calibers: .45, .45 Colt and .410 shot shell.
Magpul Dynamics – Art of the Dynamic Handgun
“The key advantage of the handgun is that it’s practical. There are much better weapons for defending yourself. A rifle or shotgun will always offer more protection than a handgun. The reason why handguns are so practical is that it’s not always feasible to reach for a rifle.
When you need it quickly, or there’s a surprise attack, a handgun in easy reach will get the job done. It’s also handy because it’s concealable.
Training is essential. The best training is to take a course with a certified instructor, but for various reasons (including cost), this is not always a great option. If you’ve got the money, this is the way to go; if you’re on a budget, there are other options.
One great course that’s very reasonable is the NRA’s Education and Training Division.
Some maintain that the handgun is the easiest and most practical tool for defending you and your family. Before it will do you any good, you’ve got to know how to use it.”
