For our SOTG Homeroom from CrossBreed Holsters, we will consider the Gun Control agenda in the United States and over five decades of lies. Is the American public still falling for the propaganda of the left? Also, have you heard about the new 30 Super Carry cartridge from Federal?

The Vice Prostitute of the United States said the January 6th, 2021 protests were akin to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. However, she forgot a few inconvenient historical facts.

During our Duracoat Finished Firearm segment, Paul will display a custom-finished pistol. Our question for you is; do you like it rough? Also, for our Brownells Bullet Points feature we will discuss red versus green optics? Does it matter and how?

Vice President Kamala Harris caused outrage Thursday by comparing the Jan. 6 Capitol riot to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941 and the Sept. 11 attacks on New York and Washington by al Qaeda terrorists.

“Certain dates echo throughout history, including dates that instantly remind all who have lived through them where they were, and what they were doing when our democracy came under assault,” Harris said in remarks at the Capitol’s Statuary Hall on Thursday morning.

Amidst the social and political turmoil of the 1970s, a handful of women—among them a onetime Barnard student, a Texas sorority sister, the daughter of a former communist journalist—joined and became leaders of the May 19th Communist Organization.

Named to honor the shared birthday of civil rights icon Malcolm X and Vietnamese leader Ho Chi Minh, M19 took its belief in “revolutionary anti-imperialism” to violent extremes: It is “the first and only women-created and women-led terrorist group,” says national security expert and historian William Rosenau.

One of the fundamentals of growing a business is to identify a niche and fill it. That’s all the folks at Federal were doing. There has long been a small space between the performance of 9 mm Parabellum and .380 ACP. Though they have the same diameters, the former is the NATO and law enforcement standard and has really been pressing its advantage over every other defensive cartridge over the last several years.

The public has embraced it as well. Once new bullets and loadings came along that demonstrated the round’s efficacy as being equal to that of the vaunted .40 S&W and .45 ACP, the reduced recoil of the 9 mm and the superior firepower of gun’s chambered for it made for an easy choice. 30 Super Carry…
