SIg P320 drop fire issues...

It appears there IS truth to the 'rumor' of Sig P320s firing when dropped...

The Firearms blog picked up on it, HERE.  And Guns.com posted Sig's response, HERE.
But Omaha Outdoors did their own test... Results below...



Hopefully, Sig will take action to remedy this.

Anniversary

July 8th is the Official Day that OldNFO took over as the Main Editor of the gun Blog Black List, JayG, Kevin and myself joined up shortly afterward.

Jay and Kevin went to work in the firearms and media industry leaving just myself and OldNFO.

So please drop a comment to OldNFO for 4 years of stewardship, after taking over the reins from North who just had too many projects on his hands to be able to take care of this.  He still posts from time to time, so also please drop him a thankee in the comments as well.

Without him taking an idea and running with it, there would be NO Gun Blog Black List.

Thankee OldNFO and Thankee North.

Hopefully we will still be around in another 4 years.

Happy Independence Day



Please be very safe.  and while I know most of our readers here don't imbibe and handle firearms, there are newer and less experienced shooters and firearm owners out there who are NOT fully cognizant of the "Four Rules"

Please remember, a bullet can travel a Looooooong distance.  Even .22LR can travel up to 1.5 miles.  and remember that sniper that recently shot a terrorist at over 2 miles away?

Yeah, bullets can go a fair distance.  And what goes up, MUST come down.  And it comes down at very high speed and could injure or KILL someone.

Don't be that person that mishandles/misuses a firearm this Independence Day.

Don't get hurt, and don't hurt anyone else.

And PLEASE get home to your families safe, sound, hearty and hale.

NRA Statement on Peruta v. California

NRA Statement on Peruta v. California


Fairfax, Va. — The executive director of the National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action, Chris W. Cox, released the following statement Monday regarding the United States Supreme Court's denial of petition in the case of Peruta v. California:
"We are disappointed in the Court's rejection of the appeal in Peruta v. California, which now leaves millions of law-abiding Californians with no ability to bear arms outside the home.  As Justices Thomas and Gorsuch correctly stated, too many courts have been treating the Second Amendment as a second-class right.  That should not be allowed to stand.  As the Supreme Court stated in its landmark decision in Heller v. District of Columbia, the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to keep and bear arms for self-defense.  The framers of our Constitution did not intend to limit that right to the home.  We look forward to a future Court affirming that the right to keep and bear arms is as much a part of our Constitution as the other enumerated rights that it protects. We will not stop fighting until a future Court affirms this fundamental right."


Established in 1871, the National Rifle Association is America's oldest civil rights and sportsmen's group. More than five million members strong, NRA continues to uphold the Second Amendment and advocates enforcement of existing laws against violent offenders to reduce crime. The Association remains the nation's leader in firearm education and training for law-abiding gun owners, law enforcement and the armed services.

Ruger MK 4 Recall!!!

Courtesy of Bayou Resaissance Man

Heads up, Ruger Mark IV owners


Ruger is recalling all of its new Mark IV .22LR pistols manufactured before June 1st, 2017.  You'll find details at the company's Web site.  If you enter your pistol's serial number into the provided box, it'll tell you whether or not your gun is subject to the recall, and provide further information.

Ruger's promising a free magazine with every pistol sent back for repair, which is nice of them.  Even so, I'm glad Ruger is standing behind their products (as one would expect from a company like that).
