Betsy Who?
Published on   |  By 99point7percent

Remember when Betsy Riot was a thing? They were another loose collection of gun control groupies who really thought they’d be the end of the NRA and usher in a gun-free new age. Their tools involved a lot of vulgar language (f**kyerguns being their battle cry), and a lot of inordinate thought given to the,


More Observations from a Free State
Published on   |  By 99point7percent

Gun Control types still scoff at the idea that the best way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun, all the while believing that, somehow, the disarmed model of confronting a bad guy with a gun will ensure a better outcome. *** I read some pearl-clutching in


Fide et Armis

One perspective on gun ownership and faith. How can a believer manage guns and God? As with any issue, I turn to Paul’s advice governing those negotiable issues of our faith–“Let each be fully assured in his own mind.” For that, you need to go to God for your best answer. Too often we try


Not As Advertised

A complete view of American gun culture is not in gun control’s best interests. It better serves their goals to keep people from seeing the forest for the trees. To this end, gun control arguments tend to center around three major characteristics: omission, emotion, and statistical sleight of hand. This explains why Everytown’s propaganda arm,

In grad school, I read Rolf Hochhuth’s Der Stellvertreter, which was a dramatic play about what the churches did and did not do during the Holocaust.  English translations render the title as “The Deputy,” but the word itself is more closely related to “Vicar,” as in someone who represents another.  The title itself asked the


On Rights and Needs

Sooner or later, every gun owner or gun rights advocate will have these questions asked to him or her: “Why do you need a gun?” “Why do you need *that* gun?” “Why do you need so many guns?” “Why do you need to carry a gun to get groceries?” “Why do you need so much


Gross Negligence & Terror: How I Barely Survived a Day in The Streets of a Gun-Friendly State

This Isn’t Hyperbole; Really, it’s Not!   A few years ago, Moms Demand activist Hedi Yewman got a gun and carry license to get some sort of “inside perspective” on gun culture.  More recently, Giffords founder Mark Kelly bought an evil black rifle to try to demonstrate…something…involving the legal purchase of an evil black rifle.


1911 Chronicles, Continued: A Century-Old Pistol in Action

As you may recall from the last article, a growing number of friends encouraged me to simply shoot my “new” gun, and see what happens.


The 1911 Chronicles, Continued. Part II: Assessment
Published on   |  By 99point7percent

In the course of researching my new acquisition, I learned a few things I’ll pass on here. Firstly, some–especially those new to the 1911, like me–might be curious, “what is the difference between a 1911 and a 1911A1?” In short, not much. Most of the changes are ergonomic. A beavertail was added to the A1


The 1911 Chronicles: Restoring a Family Heirloom to a Functional Defensive Firearm
Published on   |  By 99point7percent

PART ONE: ACQUISITION I never really grew up around firearms.  Even though they were a part of my Dad’s upbringing in rural Virginia and West Virginia, as a means of helping feed their family of five, following the practices of generations of Appalachian families, he never once took me nor my brother hunting.
