65 Year old woman runs off 5 armed robbers!

In Garden Grove, California the other day, a 65 year old woman with a gun chased 5 armed criminals out of her jewelry store.  The video of this amazing incident (posted below) is quite funny.  These crooks can’t get out the door fast enough!

How is a 65 year old supposed to defend her life, without the equalizing force of a firearm? In the end, the police can not be everywhere at once.  It is up to YOU to defend YOU until help can arrive.

HOUSTON – The teenage son of a Harris County Precinct 1 deputy shot a home intruder Tuesday afternoon in the 2600 block of Royal Place in northwest Harris County, deputies said.

The 15-year-old boy and his 12-year-old sister had been home alone in the Mount Royal Village subdivision when around 2:30 p.m. a pair of burglars tried the front and back doors, then broke a back window.

The teenager grabbed his father’s assault rifle and knew what to do with it.

“We don’t try to hide things from our children in law enforcement,” Lt. Jeffrey Stauber said. “That young boy was protecting his sister. He was in fear for his life and her life.”

The home invaders fled, leaving a trail of blood.

Marines + 1911 = Happy Marines

The rumors have been floating around for several weeks, but this is the first I have seen in the main stream media.  I LOVE the 1911, but I am still not sure it would be my frist choice if I was living in the mud and sand….  Just glad that we are helping the American gun industry, and helping these young Marines by teaching them the joy of a proper trigger.

“The M1911 Colt .45

The Colt .45 M1911 is making a big comeback, now that the U.S. Marines have placed a $22.5 million order for the Connecticut-made pistols.

It’s been called the greatest handgun ever made, and it has barely changed sine 1911, when the legendary John Browning designed it especially for the U.S. Military.

And now, the Colt .45 M1911 is making a big comeback, now that the U.S. Marines have placed a $22.5 million order for the Connecticut-made pistols.

The gun, which has been wielded on film by John Wayne and in real life by Sgt. Alvin York and Maj. Audie Murphy, was the standard-issue sidearm in the military for decades, until it was replaced by the Beretta M9 in 1985.”

 

“It just became an iconic part of military and American history.”

– Gerry Dinkel, CEO and president of Colt Defense

When someone says his pistol is reliable, what does that mean?

Excellent article from Todd Green at Pistol Training.com.  Whatever you decide to carry, you have to test THAT INDIVIDUAL GUN for yourself…  We can tell you statistically which guns will run more reliably than others, but you still need you run YOUR gun with YOUR carry ammo to insure the combination works!

Train like your life depends on it, because it does.

Army reverses ban on P-Mags

I guess the Army is actually listening to the troops for once.  No Mags are perfect, but P-Mags are far better that most of the mags out there.

From Military.com…
“The Pentagon has clarified the Army’s stance on a recent safety message that effectively banned a certain high-performance, commercial M4 magazine, which means soldiers can keep using their PMAGs.

The confusion began when Army officials from the TACOM Life Cycle Management Command issued a message in April, declaring that the only government-issued aluminum magazines were authorized for use in the M4 and M16 rifles.”
