A Tec-9 Malfunctions. Good Thing for the Good Guy

This one is bouncing around the news channels this morning but let us look at something else. My buddy Greg Ellifritz (an LEO in OH and Instructor himself) cataloged all the guns that came in off the street and found some amazing results. Like not being loaded, partially loaded, mix match of ammo, wrong ammo, […]

Cavemen Use Hammers and Clubs more than Rifles

A little something from a couple of years ago but the stats haven’t changed much I recon. Rob. FBI: MORE PEOPLE KILLED WITH HAMMERS, CLUBS EACH YEAR THAN RIFLES According to the FBI annual crime statistics, the number of murders committed annually with hammers and clubs far outnumbers the number of murders committed with a […]

Another Piece of Human Garbage Kills
