“But, in this day of semi-automatic pistols, it is wise not to overlook the tried-and-true snubnose revolver. They’ve been around for a long time and that is simply due to the fact they meet the defensive needs of a lot of folks.”
Now, if they just can get the aim-interfering, double-action trigger fixed, please?

“Given the same ubiquity of guns, wouldn’t the most productive question be what, if anything, has changed since the 1960s and ’70s? Of course it would. And a great deal has changed. America is much more ethnically diverse, much less religious. Boys have far fewer male role models in their lives. Fewer men marry, and normal boy behavior is largely held in contempt by their feminist teachers, principals and therapists. Do any or all of those factors matter more than the availability of guns?”
And although the Virginia Beach killer was a black man, most of the killers have been and continue to be white men. There’s a question right there.
An interesting take on the Virginia Beach shooter’s choice of handgun, one with a noise suppressor (a silencer, in Hollyweird’s inaccurate parlance) that bodes evil if it becomes a trend. “What saves lives? The sound of gunfire.”
“So here is the near future: Every time the New York Times runs another anti-Semitic cartoon (and it will), each time a left-wing member of Congress questions the patriotism or morality of American Jews (and one will), and on every occasion Jewish students are harassed on campus (and they will be), we go another mile down the road to the well-known historical disaster that is looming ahead.”
Except this time Jews will not be disarmed. The sheep dogs among us will be carrying, while the sheep prattle on about love-thy-neighbor.

First, Creepy Joe Biden the pedo praises the “courage” of the thugs of Antifa who beat up Trump supporters and people against open borders.
Then the keynote speaker at a Harvard diversity conference–shortly after the Sri Lanka Christian massacre— says Christians should be “locked up,” mocked “viciously,” and “run out of the public square…they have to be politically destroyed.”
Can the Jews be far behind?
As Instapundit says “Sell your cloak and buy a sword. Or an AR-15.” The war is on.
Here’s a good idea from Defender88 at the NRA’s Shooting Illustrated:
“Buy a stack of man size silhouette targets.
Take 1 and make a large x across it.
Indicating this is a Non-Threat target.
“Staple the non-threat across the front of a standard threat target. Cover 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 of the threat target. Practice moving and shooting and hitting the threat (say head shot) without hitting the non-threat. At different distances.
Find out what your real capabilities are, under ideal conditions. Considering how you would feel in hitting a non-threat : Wife, kid, by-stander.
Try making a head shot, while moving, with one hand, etc.
Then consider it will be 10x harder in a real fight.
One thing more important than knowing ‘when’ to shoot is knowing when ‘not’ to shoot.”
And, having practiced, being ready to employ your knowing.
