A couple of weekends ago, Gunnutmegger and I were out in the Newington, Connecticut area, checking in at Hoffmans to see what was available and to pick up some supplies. It was a worthwhile visit, mainly because I was able to take a look at Walther’s new offering, the PPQ.
I’ve been looking for a full-size pistol in 9mm Luger, and being a big fan of the company, I was eager to get my hands on it. Happily, they had one in the case for me to look at. My first impressions were very favorable, and it’s moved to the top of my “I really want this” list.
There’s no such thing as a perfect gun design. Kabooms happen, and not just to .40 Glocks.
Kabooms even happen to 1911′s (which often have an unsupported chamber, something that 1911 fans throw mud at Glock about):
Flash mobs have made the news recently:
While doing research on the Ruger website, I found an interesting feature:
Ruger has been auctioning off its factory collection:
Such is life. Like most gun fans, we had no illusions about the attitude that the Teleprompter-Jockey-in-Chief or his faithful lapdog, Eric cockHolder, would take towards guns.
Hopefully the Gunrunner/Gunwalker/Fast&Furious scandals will torpedo these new proposals. Or annoy enough gun people to make a difference at the polls.
In any case, we will continue to pass along relevant information that we find. We freely admit that there are other sites where current news is more prevalent. But hey, we were never trying to be the Instapundit of the gun blogging universe. There’s saysuncle for that. And we all love him for it!
No, we at YGN just try to explore different facets of the wide world of guns and share what we learn with our readers.
It has been a heck of a year. This blog began quietly. Despite baseless rumors of link-trolling, we made our big splash the gun blogging universe by merely stating a position I have held for years. A position which I will continue to reiterate as long as innocent consumers get tricked into buying obsolete, unsafe guns that need to be gunsmithed to make them reliable.
And a lot has happened in a year. Some major legal victories at the state and federal level. A whole bushel of new gun designs came onto the market (such as the Chiappa Rhino and the Kel-Tec’s KSG shotgun). And one of the last states to not allow concealed carry (Wisconsin, where it sucks to be a liberal right now) just passed a law legalizing it (and as Shall-Issue!).
Now it’s just lonely Illinois left to treat its citizens like incompetent sheep. And can any of us honestly say that we expected better from a state run by the Daley Machine and the soulless lying taxocrats it creates? A state that has the Cubs befouling its air? A state that is so ignorant and backward, they think that dumping a lasagna into a crust lets them call it a “pizza”?
