Subject: Defensive Gun Use Reports Posted Date: 2014-07-10 13:43:43
Lies, lies, lies. That's what Bloomberg and his minion Shannon Watts must think about the defensive gun use report. You can't spin reality like you can spin numbers. American's defend themselves, their families, and their friends using a firearm each and every day.

More importantly, American's use those same firearms to protect their neighbors and even random strangers. Just something else Mom's Demand Action says "never happens".

As always, we're going to cover the basic ground rules of the report an

UPDATE: Todd decided to take down most of his videos. Luckily, I have copies. I'll be posting them again momentarily. Okay, they are up, Enjoy.

You really can't get much dumber that <a href="">Todd Locey</a>. Yes, he posted the picture above to Target's Facebook page using the name Todd Lo, but his name is Todd Locey and I believe he officially announced his candidacy for dumbest gun owner alive.

Yesterday, the gun grabber social media world came alive with news of "victory" with national retail chain Target.

According to Mayor Bloomberg and Moms Demand Action, May was the month that didn't happen for defensive gun use. Why? Among this months stories of self defense we had Good Guys with Guns, multiple armed attackers, and people using rifles to defend themselves and their families.

You know - all the things that Bloomberg and Shannon Watts say never happen.

Let's cover the ground rules:

April's Defensive Gun Use Report is a few weeks late due to <a href="">a family tragedy</a>. Thank you to everyone for their kind words and actions.

This is going to be a shorter than typical DGU report because we're under a time crunch for May's report. That said, April was an interesting month and there are some really interesting stories from interesting places.

For the ADD crowd, here's the short version:

They say the worst sound you can hear is a click when you expect a bang... I can tell you that's just not true. The worst sound you can hear is a bang when you had no idea it could be coming.

On April 24th, my son killed himself using the handgun I purchased to protect my family and the ammunition I selected for it's lethality.

Our family was home and heard the shot - but it didn't sound like a gunshot. It sounded like someone falling into a door. Since he was 15, Joey had a severe form of in

As you've no doubt heard, <a href="">Chipotle asked people not to open carry</a> in their restaurants today. Why? Basically because of these two mental midgets:

Currently, Freddie is working as General Manager at one of the premier gunsmithing facilities in the world - ROBAR Companies based in Phoenix, Arizona.

At ROBAR Companies, Inc. we often receive phone calls or emails from customers stating that their gun is "jamming." [b]Without

The best part about interviewing Dom Raso is that he goes on long tangents. The worst part about interviewing Dom Raso is that he goes on long tangents.

Understand that Dom goes on tangents because he is knowledgeable and passionate about firearms, training, and service so it's all great information. We talked about everything from Call of Duty players, BUD/S, kids and firearms to caliber debates. And training. Dom talks about training like mall ninja's talk about the newest tactical, tier 1 gear

The return of the Defensive Gun Use Report! We've been away a long time because of a lot of other projects. The stories were still getting posted but nobody was around to compile them into the report. That's over and we're back to sharing what can be found in the media on DGU's.

A quick refresher on the DGU report ground rules:

Despite the fact that they happen numerous times each and every day, Defensive Gun Use stories rarely make the medi

It's pretty easy for me to sit here and tell guys how to treat women at the range. Half the time it falls on deaf ears because who actually listens to women when it doesn't involve "what you want on your sandwich?" Fortunately for me the incredible Mike Lamb is our in house basic safety, home defense pistol and shotgun instructor.

For those who don't know, Mike Lamb is the <a href="">host of Trigger Time TV</a>, and the founder of <a href="">Stoic Ventu

"I think he embodied everything it is to be a police officer, and what the badge stands for," Phoenix police Sergeant Bob Knapp said of Detective John Hobbs. "He upheld that until the day he died."

A devoted husband and father of three young girls, Detective Hobbs served 21 years with the Phoenix Police Department. Assigned to the fugitive apprehension unit, known as the Major Offender Unit, Detective Hobbs was respected and well liked by all in the Department. "John was one of the best we

I don't expect everyone that walks through the door at a gun store to be a gun expert. There are plenty of things I don't know and I have yet to learn.

I also have had my fair share of moments sounding silly. One of the best parts of my job is having new shooters come into the range wanting to learn and wanting to explore the great world of firearms. Educating people about firearms and everything that goes along with that is the fun part; it definitely beats filling out more paperwork just to keep Cali

When Caracal came out with their F, C, and S model pistols a few years ago I was as giddy as can be. It seemed like the best of the Glock / Steyr lineage from a new company and an innovative sighting system with their Quick Sights.

I fell for it and was anxiously waiting for one to hit the shelves nearby so I could get my hands on it and have my new wonder pistol.

Lucky for me, none of the local gun stores ever got one in. I'd have paid for it - and paid a premium if they were charging o

We received a copy of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE) response to the Temporary Restraining Order issued by federal magistrate Bernard G. Skomal on the behalf of Ares Armor. There's really only one thing to say about the document and Assistant United States Attorney Daniel Butcher...

Being hit on is nothing new to me or any woman in the world. However guns guys have a very special way about how they go about flirting or hitting on a girl. It's no surprise that seeing a girl (a cute girl) at the gun range is still something of a novelty. Here are some of the gems I have gotten working at a range.

[Note from Easy Bake Gun Club: We wanted to take a moment to introduce our newest writer, Barbie Quinn. She brings a unique perspective as a female working in the firearms industry and she's an all around awesome person with interesting stories.]

A little background on me: I come from a family of police officers. From patrol officers to corrections officers, military police, detectives, Captains, and Chiefs. I was 12 years old when I learned to shoot. My grandfather and step-dad took

You know that moment when the training seems to click and you just get it? I had one of those moments at the range a while back. That was the day that Travis Haley broke my gun.

Bang. Bang. Click. Fuck... oh wait, I know what to do.

Following the directions from Travis Haley's Magpul Dynamics and Make Ready With videos, I bypassed Tap, Rack, Bang and got scientific on this thing. A quick look told me it's out of battery which, according to Travis has a simple answer:

There's already a large segment of the gun community (consumers, companies, and media) who are promoting that the current crisis with Russia is going to cause a worldwide shortage of 7.62 ammo and causing a run on the ammo.

As MAC over at The Bang Switch <a href="">already pointed out here</a> 7.62x39 is made in quite a few countries worldwide and the companies importing and distributing the ammo already have contingency plans i

I had some time to kill today so I decided to check out Public Gun and Pawn in Hollywood, Florida. The store immediately makes an impression on you. You will walk in to find an gentleman kicked back in a chair watching a big screen TV that seems to be the focal point the rest of the store was designed around. From behind the counter another gentleman (Allen I think) asks me "what are you interested in." I told him was looking for a Smith and Wesson 1006 and we laughed together at the same
