Is Marco Rubio Really Pro-Gun?

This article originally appeared at OutdoorHub. So far, we’ve looked at Donald Trump and Ben Carson in our series investigating whether Republican presidential candidates are really pro-gun. Finally, we’re getting to the professional politicians so we can inspect their actual voting records. Will their walk be consistent with their talk? Along with Trump and Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio seems to be in the top three for the race. How does the Cuban American and US Senator from the great state of Florida stack up when it comes to gun rights? What he says Senator Rubio takes a direct approach to linking gun rights to personal protection, at least according to his campaign website. “New gun laws will do…

Storied Guns: The M1 Garand

This article originally appeared at AmmoLand. A 1945 M1 Garand from Springfield Armory During World War II, United States combat troops first went ashore, literally, at Guadalcanal carrying the tried and true Springfield Armory 1903. One of the last shots fired in the same war was likely fired from a U.S. Rifle, Cal. 30, M1, more commonly known as the M1 Garand. The familiar name, Garand, is from the inventor John Garand, who spent a 34-year career designing and improving semi-automatic military rifles at the Springfield Armory. By the way, it’s pronounced in such a way as to rhyme with the word “parent” not “Grrr-AND.” According to M1 historian Scott A. Duff, Garand started working on the rifle from…

Carrying for Terrorism

This article originally appeared at Ammoland. By Tom McHale In light of current events, I’ve felt more comfortable carrying a higher capacity 9mm like this Sig Sauer P229 Legion. Tom McHale USA –-(Ammoland.com)- While “Carrying for Terrorism” sounds like a Sally Struthers TV infomercial cause, it’s becoming a legitimate self-defense topic worthy of a rational consideration. Let’s get one thing out the way first. The odds of you getting caught up in a domestic terror attack are pretty darn low. Yes, terrorism is now here on our shores. Actually, unless you work for the New York Times, you already know that it’s been here for decades. Yes, I fully expect there will be more attacks like the recent…

The Amazing .357 Sig

This article first appeared at Range365. This is Speer’s 125-grain Gold Dot ammunition. Few experienced handgunners question the legitimacy of the .357 Magnum caliber. While it still has the limitations of any handgun cartridge, it has developed a reputation as a fight-stopper since its introduction in a revolver by Smith & Wesson way back in 1935. The .357 Sig is a cartridge that was designed to allow for near-.357 Magnum ballistics in a semiautomatic pistol. And there’s a lot to know—and like—about the .357 Sig. Here are some of the most interesting facts about this unique cartridge. It’s a .357 Magnum for Pistols Projects like cartridge development are always a team effort. In this case, SIG…

REVIEW 7.62x39mm Sig Sauer 556R Rifle

This article originally appeared at OutdoorHub. A shooter aims the Sig 556R. The 556R is chambered in 7.62x39mm and utilizes standard AK-pattern magazines. Image by Matt Korovesis. So a Swiss watch maker, a New Hampshirite granite boy, and a Russian small arms designer walk into a bar… Ok maybe that didn’t happen, but it could have given the eclectic roots of the Sig Sauer 556R semi-automatic rifle. While the name “556R” implies AR-type family history, this rifle diverges from the standard direct impingement Stoner rifle. One of the benefits of the piston operation is that you can use a folding stock. A quick tour of the Sig Sauer 556R rifle. First and foremost, it’s a piston operated rifle, so there…
