SIG Sauer P320 Public Service Announcement

It came to the attention of Guns & Ammo early last week that the commercial variant of SIG Sauer’s P320 pistol, under certain conditions, can unintentionally discharge if repeatedly dropped at a negative 30-degree angle onto a concrete surface from a height of at least 4 feet. G&A staff and a handful of other media visited SIG Sauer’s United States headquarters last Monday, Aug. 7, to meet with SIG Sauer executive staff, engineers and project managers to discuss its P320 — all of whom had tirelessly worked over the weekend to pinpoint and finalize upgrades to make the P320 even safer. Over the weekend, SIG Sauer engineers conducted 2,200 drops using 11 pistols across three different test protocols, including dropping the pistol at a negative 30-degree angle.

Virginia Military Institute’s Cadet Rifles

For more than 20 years leading up to the founding of Virginia Military Institute (VMI) on Nov. 11, 1839, the Commonwealth of Virginia used an arsenal building at Lexington to store Richmond-manufactured arms in the western part of the state. Arms included the U.S. Model 1795 and the Model 1816 muskets from Harpers Ferry Armory and Springfield Armory. Once VMI was formed, the institution obtained rifles that were reduced scale and shortened for virtue of a student’s young age. These variants would eventually be described as Cadet rifles and were purchased by many military schools. In 1864, 257 VMI cadets marched 85 miles and fought to victory at the Battle of …

I hate to talk about this kind of stuff but it still needs to be mentioned. I’m big on transparency so sometimes these discussions will come up. I fund the majority of this site via my own wallet. It makes money from ads, mind you, but it’s really just enough to pay the hosting fees. On top of that, a large majority of the internet uses ad blockers so I’m only getting ad revenue from a fraction of my visitors.

Edwin Sarkissian Is The Ultimate Gun Video Shitposter

I clicked around this guy’s channel for a bit to see if anything has changed: His eponymous channel, Edwin Sarkissian now has a whopping 341,000 subscribers.  Incredible.  That video above, has 7.38M as in MILLION views.  I don’t know what happened to make that one so popular, because most others only have around 30k – 100k.  I see that in my first post on Edwin I while back, I called him “basically a less interesting Mattv2099 with an accent.”  LOL I say some wild stuff, it’s funny reading old posts.  My assessment still stands though.  Sadly Mattv2099 rarely makes videos now.  Isn’t there …

Mencken was right

“The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one’s time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all.” – H.L. MenckenSaying that in America even the most morally repugnant people have rights doesn’t mean you support anything about them, it just means you see the danger in allowing the majority to say “violence in response to speech is ok, so long as it’s done by people we like against people the majority deems “bad” That concept can quickly be turned against you in…

Antifa

I’ve been staying away from the news a lot these days, because I think there are better, more fulfilling, more positive uses of my time.That said, these Berkeley Protests, Antifa etc. It just makes me sad. I see people on both sides who are consumed by a great deal of hate. Hatred consumes and fuels them. They project it out of themselves and outward toward the evil “other.” In fact, I think most “Social Justice Warrioring” boils down to this behavior. Well, this and professional victimhood.I have pretty much no respect for a great deal of political viewpoints, particularly of the “progressive” bent. But that doesn’t mean everyone who doesn’t think like me is stupid or evil or dangerous. I see …
