When it comes right down to it, how much did the gun control advocates actually know about firearms and ammunition? Obviously, not as much as we know in the gun shops in NH!If they want to sit in their well decorated offices, drawing up laws for the law-abiding citizen to follow, shouldn’t they know what they’re writing about? Many of our public officeholders have no idea about firearms or ammunition, but stand fast when they have an opinion on them. They can be seen with such conviction during interviews on the news about how we should regulate guns.
Recently, Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY4) was asked a very simple question, “What is a barrel shroud?” Hint: it is what those words say it is. This question was famously lobbed at her, to which she answered after a lengthy diversion, “I actually don’t know what it is.” EXACTLY!!! She wants to regulate something that she actually knows nothing about!
In fact, on her website, McCarthy states that hollow-point bullets are “cop-killers”, and not only easily defeat body armor, they also explode. They’re explosive! If that’s not a total misunderstanding, then it’s propaganda, which is even worse.
More recently, Rep. Diana DeGette (D-CO) demonstrated that she “didn’t even understand how magazines work”, yet, she wants to regulate them! How can you regulate something you know NOTHING about?
“I will tell you these are ammunition, they’re bullets, so the people who have those now they’re going to shoot them, so if you ban them in the future, the number of these high capacity magazines is going to decrease dramatically over time because the bullets will have been shot and there won’t be any more available.” Can you rationalize the statements of this woman? Neither can I…
But, this story does get even BETTER! DeGette’s spokeswoman, Juliet Johnson, issued a statement claiming the Congresswoman ‘simply misspoke’.
Juliet Johnson had this to say: “The Congresswoman has been working on a high-capacity assault magazine ban for years and has been deeply involved in the issue; she simply misspoke in referring to ‘magazines’ when she should have referred to ‘clips,’ which cannot be reused because they don’t have a feeding mechanism.” Are you kidding me????
Stripper clips can be reloaded, and are used often, to reload magazines. That’s what they’re made for. The Representative may have learned this if someone told her that most clips hold five to 10 rounds, , not at all like the “assault magazines” that she wants to ban…
Another gaffe was VP Joe Biden’s infamous “Get a shotgun” advice to a young female at a ‘town hall’ type meeting, which included illegally discharging two warning shots into the air above an intruder’s head. Would you really want THIS man holding a firearm? Not me…
The President would never make such an ill-informed statement. Remember, he “skeet-shoots all the time.” Even President Obama incorrectly stated that the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter used a ‘fully-automatic rifle’. The shooter did not.
But one of the funniest yet, was Senator Kevin DeLeon. He has invented a whole new product, called the .”30 caliber magazine clip”. It MUST be a great product, because according to him, it can make a semi automatic rifle for 30 bullets in ½ second! Now, the only firearm I know of that has a cyclic rate is an Electric mini gun, and it has 6 barrels! “This is a ghost gun,” de Leon begins, holding an unloaded rifle in his hands. “This right here has the ability with a .30-caliber clip to disperse with 30 bullets within half a second. Thirty magazine clip in half a second.” There is no such thing as a “30-caliber clip” in the context of which he is speaking. He clearly is referring to a 30-round magazine. An ammunition magazine is different than a “clip,” but the two are often confused by those not familiar with guns. And though it’s obvious, there is also no such thing as a “30 magazine clip.”
Almost nothing can top a statement made by Sacramento City Councilwoman Sandy Sheedy. She is quoted as saying that “people get shot all the time by unloaded guns”. Uh huh… All the time…
Of course, you don’t have to be a politician to make the blunder…. In an interview, Chris Cillizza, an MSNBC political analyst, argued his point…Well, let’s see if you can UNDERSTAND his point by his statement…
“Eventually — Okay, let’s say assault weapons or let’s say these high-caliber — these high-pack rounds — if they do that, what will they do next.” We’re not even sure what they want to do first.” Did anything he said make sense to you??
At the least, these ‘experts’ provide the knowledgeable firearm owners with some great comical relief! I know we got some laughs in gun shops in NH! Could you imagine if they ever heard of ‘slide fire stocks’? Thank the good Lord that we don’t have these problems here in the great state of New Hampshire!

It’s surprising to see in many gun forums, people speak about having superior guns or how one caliber is better than another. When in all actuality, it is not only a combination, but the actual type of ammunition that figures into it as well.
We will discuss the different types of ammunition. You don’t have to carry a “hand cannon” to protect yourself. I am quite confident in carrying a firearm that is no bigger than the size of my hand, with no more than six rounds of ammunition, in 9 mm format. You should place more emphasis on your training and tactical know-how in a self-defense situation than how ‘big a bullet’ you are carrying. First off, let’s get into types of ammo. We will start out with penetration of armor, and work backwards to less effective ammo.
AP- which stands for armor piercing. This is a particularly hard bullet designed for maximum penetration through armor plating. Its core is a steel/tungsten-based alloy, covered in lead with a copper jacket and shaped to a point. The reason these projectiles are coated in copper or lead is to reduce the amount of barrel wear of the core compound. This ammo is not generally available to the public…
F MJ- which stands for full metal jacket. This projectile is made with a full lead core, jacketed with copper, brass or light steel. This is a good “all-around” projectile, for target shooting or military use. It is not a good ‘self defense’ round due to its lack of expansion and over penetration. These bullets deform or expand very little, with great penetration..
JSP- which is a jacketed soft point. This is a variant of the full metal jacket, but the jacket does not cover the tip. This was a great invention, as it still allowed for expansion into the wound cavity, but didn’t foul the barrel of a firearm. This design is a great cross between the FMJ and the latter discussed JHP. It has better penetration then the JHP, but sustains more stopping power than the FMJ.
JHP-this stands for jacketed hollow point. This is the source design for most personal protection ammunition. Forming an open cavity inside the core of the projectile allows the bullet to “mushroom” as it makes contact with flesh causing a larger wound cavity. This is an absolutely great design for personal protection as even a 9 mm round when opened mushrooms to the size of a nickel, causing the body to absorb all the energy of the bullet.
Frangible Ammo- This ammo such as Glaser Safety Slug, Magsafe, Extreme Shock, the infamous Black Rhino and Razor rounds, BeeSafe, etc., are ‘frangible’ rounds. Such rounds were designed to have bullets that are light weight and to fragment in soft tissue and often fragile enough to break apart and deform when striking a hard surface in order to reduce the potential down-range hazard of a missed shot.
“Frangible” ammo is made strictly for reduced hazard training purposes. Such ammo is made by using a non-toxic powdered metal (primarily tin, copper or zinc) and adding a binding matrix (nylon or a plastic/polymer substance) and then sintering the powders together under heat and pressure to form the bullet. When these bullets strike an object harder than itself, the bullet will (suppose to) fragment into very small particles (powder) and eliminate all risks of splash-back (having chunks of lead and copper jacket from standard bullets bouncing back towards the shooter.
So, your shooting purpose will decide which type of ammo you’ll use. If you have any questions, or would even like to get into the hobby of reloading your own ammunition, I suggest you call the professionals at SL Gun Shop, in Mason, NH. We are very knowledgeable and are more than willing to help you on your decision-making, and can be reached at 603-878-2854.
Walking into gun shops in NH, there are plenty of things to catch your eye, especially if you walk into SL Gun Shop in Mason, NH. SL Gun has an incredible selection of Firearms, holsters and accessories for the shooting enthusiast. There are many different topics to cover, but today we will shed some light on Holsters.
More and more people are getting into concealed carry these days, so proper selection of your holster is almost as important as your firearm. Here are some guidelines in selecting a holster for carry.
When selecting a holster, you have to decide where it is comfortable on your body and where it is most concealable depending on the type of clothing you wear. The types of holsters are as follows:
· shoulder holsters-this holster harnesses the firearm so that is near the armpit of the opposite arm that you use to draw with. With the good quality holster, you should not notice that your firearm is even there. A benefit to this type of holster is that you can wear a suit jacket with it and the holster will not be visible. These are highly customizable and very adjustable holsters.
· Ankle holster – these holsters are generally for small frame firearms or ‘backup’ weapons to a larger frame carried somewhere else.
· Inside the waistband holster- these typically offer more concealability keeping your weapon on your side, clipped to your belt. They are good when you’re wearing short jackets or lighter clothing. Galco makes some great IWB holsters.
· Outside the waistband holster – these holsters are reliable, and are fairly comfortable. I personally prefer this type of carry, and I use a Don Hume holster.
· Pocket Holster- These are good for very small firearms, and they offer the person wearing it the ability to look ‘natural’ reaching into their pocket for the weapon.
· Small of the back Holster- This is another favorite of mine, as with a decent jacket on, nobody can tell you are carrying. It is usually a clip type, sitting on the belt, at the small of the back. Not the easiest to get to in a hurry.
There are also groin holsters, belly band holsters and others. As stated, it all depends on personal preference and comfort. Don’t let someone tell you that your firearm HAS to be ‘HERE’… it is different for everyone. Find what is comfortable for you!
