I Carried a Rifle to Work for Two Years and You Wouldn’t Believe What Happened!

I Carried a Rifle to Work for Two Years and You Wouldn’t Believe What Happened!

For over two years, I’ve carried either an SBR or an AR15 pistol to work. I have consulted at various places, and am now working full-time. You wouldn’t believe what happened during that time: ABSOLUTELY NOTHING Contrary to hand-wringing anti-gunners, none of the following happened: The firearms never “just went off” and hurt anyone. The […]

ATF Technical Letter About AR Buffer Tubes On Non-AR Pistols

| February 18, 2015 | 7 Comments

Putting an AR15-style buffer tube on a non-AR15-style firearm has always been a contentious topic. I’ve written and stated several times that I didn’t know if it was okay to do or not, despite several retailers and manufacturers putting AR15 buffer tubes on AKs, MP5s, handgun enclosures, and many others. Finally the ATF responded, and […]

Zastava PAP M92 AK47 Short Barrel Rifle Review

Zastava PAP M92 AK47 Short Barrel Rifle Review

Anti-gun activists struck again: when the ATF announced it might change how NFA Trusts worked back in 2013 I decided to get a few more items. One of them was an M92 AK47 “pistol,” which I later converted to an SBR once my paperwork came in. Here’s my review. Out of all of the guns […]

Due to the limited capabilities of the meter used for testing, as well as the sloppy testing protocol, I have removed the contents from this page and hidden the video on YouTube. I am working with a suppressor manufacturer here in Minnesota to re-test these firearms with their professional (and very expensive) equipment. Thank you […]

Unintended consequences of long NFA application wait times

Unintended consequences of long NFA application wait times

Until eFile came along, it took me 8 – 10 months to get each NFA stamp back from the ATF. If I had gone the individual route instead of using a trust, my processing time would be even longer since I would have had to set an appointment with my chief law enforcement officer, fingerprinted, […]

| April 23, 2014 | 3 Comments

I work in the immediate vicinity of 14 people in an open seating area. We pretty much sit in overpriced, over-engineered folding tables. I currently sit in a pod of four people, with the closest person sitting less than two feet away from me. Every morning and every afternoon I open my EDC backpack to […]
