Rode the escalator with The Nuge
So the picture is pretty bad. I guess you’ll have to take my word for it.
Following reports all week of an organized march and demonstration outside of the Annual NRA Meeting in downtown Pittsburgh, a large crowd gathered outside to protest the National Rifle Association.
The crowd, estimated at, well, none, appeared well behaved and there were no reports of violence as of this writing. Police were on hand in strength to prevent any potential escalation.
A related demonstration drew an even larger crowd where organizers were advertising a local gun and knife show, hoping to draw additional attendees from the gun-friendly crowd at the NRA meeting.
The perfect Mothers Day gift for home perimeter defense! M2 water cooled configuration in an anti-aircraft mount.
These are just the Series 1′s in the amazing Woodsman collection in the Ohio Gun Collectors Association booth. Very nice.
Bartel Armory Vault 360 – interior rotates to bring what you want right to the door. No more bangs and nicks getting a rifle out of the back! Entire unit rotates and locks in place to hide the door and lock.
Although tempting sometimes, not designed to house small children.
Having only recently read Atlas Shrugged (yeah I know – a little late) I couldn’t help but draw some comparisons to the fine City of Pittsburgh and its relative lack of preparation for the influx of 70,000 very polite, but patient only-to-a-point NRA convention folks.
Let’s just say, that in the 2 hours and 45 minutes it took me to drive the 12 miles from my hotel to the convention center, I saw the following:
Wow. After the steel industry crashed one would think the city would have some motivation to attract convention business. Maybe. Or maybe not. They’ve only had years to prepare.
To quote Bill O’Reilly: “Pinheads.”
Wow – a very interesting turn of events. One of the big announcements from Sig Sauer at this years NRA Annual Meeting is the launch of a new AR platform rifle – the Sig M400.
Known for taking the AR platform to the next level with gas rod operation in their 556 and 516 series, the M400 bucks the trend by reverting to a direct impingement operation – like most other AR platform rifles.
The move makes sense though, as the M400 is targeted at the Law Enforcement market. With parts interchangeability with existing AR rifles, departments can buy the Sig brand and reliability without wasting existing parts inventories and maintenance knowledge. An added benefit – the M400 should have a street price of about $800.
Things that make you go hmmmm.
Tom McHale was born helpless, hungry and shooting-deprived. He later discovered the joys of collecting and shooting guns, reloading ammunition and writing about his adventures with a healthy dose of fun. Tom's career has been diverse, bordering on dysfunctional, with most of it spent leading marketing teams for a variety of technology companies including Microsoft and more than a couple of high-tech startups. He's finally seen the light and given up the corporate life to pursue his passion of creating slightly crazy, but educational, content related to guns, shooting, concealed carry and self defense.
His most recent project is publishing a series of informative books under the Insanely Practical Guides brand. You can learn more at InsanelyPracticalGuides.com.
