Here is the list.
While the Glock is the most popular modern pistol, it may not be the best gun for everyone’s needs. Here are some alternatives to the Glock that could be better than it, and why.
1. STI 2011
The STI 2011 is an updated, double-stack 1911 chambered in 9mm or .40 S&W. Highly customized 2011s have dominated the American competition shooting scene due to their excellent single-action only triggers, high capacity and low recoil impulse.
While triggers and upgrades exist that can get the striker-fired Glock near the level of the 2011, the superior shooting characteristics of the 2011 make it a far more popular choice in many competitive shooting divisions.
However, 2011s are more expensive, require far more maintena...
THE FOURTH AMENDMENT
We have all heard of it, but what does it mean and how does it affect you?
The language of the Fourth Amendment reads:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
Simply put, the Fourth Amendment stops government agents (usually the police) from searching or seizing a person without first establishing probable cause and securing a warrant from a judge.
UNRESTRICTED SEARCH AND SEIZURE

MYTH NUMBER ONE: THE 3-STEP RULE
Let’s start with the 3-Step Rule. It is possible that some states have a 3-Step Rule which allows those without a carry license to keep a firearm in their car. Typically, a 3-Step Rule is just that. The ability to fire a firearm is three steps away.
An example of the 3-Step Rule would be: step one, your gun is unloaded. Step two, your gun is in a closed case, or in a holster with the snapping, or buckling retention strap. Step three, your gun is in the case, or holster, and is then put into the glove box, or center console. To be clear, Florida does not now, nor has it ever had a 3-Step Rule.
Florida law regarding carrying a firearm in your car without a CWFL is found in Florida Statute 790.25 Subsecti...
Why attend an event?
Ignorance of the law is not a legal excuse!
The legal system can be very hostile toward gun owners.
Responsible gun owners get thrown into the legal system every single day.
What topics will be explained at our events?
Our events feature experienced attorneys, law enforcement, and other firearms professionals who cover a wide-range of topics such as the Castle Doctrine, the justified use of deadly force, where you can legally carry, what to expect when law enforcement arrives, and much more. Every event has dedicated question-and-answer segments to ensure all attendees are able to get the information they want to know from a credible source they can trust.
What materials are provided at the workshop?
With summer upon us, temperatures in much of the country are hot, hot, hot. A big question many gun owners have this time of year is whether it is safe to store their firearms and ammunition in a hot car. They are concerned that the temperatures in their cars will reach high enough temperatures to cause the ammunition to self-ignite or cause a round to go off in the chamber.
Unless your car is on fire, the ammunition stored inside will not get hot enough to explode. Even in extremely hot climates that regularly reach temperatures in the triple digits, the temperature inside a vehicle will not reach levels that will adversely affect your ammo.
It will have to reach temperatures exceeding 400 degrees inside your vehicle before your ammun...
Home defense is probably the most stressful scenario a civilian gun owner could encounter. A crash or bump in the night, waking a homeowner up from an evening torpor or sound slumber, is a jarring proposition. Add to that a house or apartment full of family members for whom the homeowner is responsible, and things start moving very quickly. After calling the police, what weapon do you reach for to defend your family? Here are five options.
Beretta 1301 Shotgun
A semiautomatic shotgun from Italian gun manufacturer Beretta, the compact 1301 comes with an 18.5-inch barrel and a four-round magazine. The shotgun’s heft and weight, reminders of its raw power, are reassuring in stressful situations. The barrel length makes the shotgun easier ...
