    SCOTUS Decision on Hawaii Carry Case will Tell Gun Owners All They Need to Know

    The SCOTUS justices certainly look happy. The question now is who will be smiling when they reveal how they’ll treat the Young case, Americans seeking protection of their rights or violence monopolists intent on eviscerating them? (Fred Schilling, Collection of the Supreme Court of the United States)

    U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “This petition presents the same issue presented in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association,  Inc., v. Corlett … Like the New York statutory scheme at issue in NYSRPA, Hawaii maintains a statutory scheme that  denies permits to ordinary law-abiding persons who seek to carry a firearm (openly or concealed) outside the home for self-defense,” attorneys Alan Beck and Stephen Stamboulieh argue in a Petition for Writ of Certiorari filed Tuesday in the Supreme Court of the United States. “Indeed, unlike the New York scheme, where some permits actually have been issued, Hawaii’s scheme is a permitting system in name  only, because the  statute has been used to deny all permit applications during the nine years this case has been in litigation.”

    The case is Young v. Hawaii, an in-your-face denial of the right to bear arms covered extensively by AmmoLand Shooting Sports News. George Young, a native Hawaiian and Vietnam infantry veteran has been trying since 2007 to have his right to carry either openly or concealed recognized, having filed three federal lawsuits (this case is his third) over the state’s deliberately unused handgun carry law. In March, an 11-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals struck down an earlier ruling that Hawaii’s firearm restriction was unconstitutional, declaring “There is no right to carry arms openly in public; nor is any such right within the scope of the Second Amendment.”

    “The Ninth Circuit’s opinion, which finds the Second Amendment right does not apply outside the home at all, contradicts the decisions of every federal circuit court in the country that has ruled on this issue,” attorney Beck told Courthouse News after the decision was handed down. “We will be seeking Supreme Court review in order to overturn the Ninth Circuit’s erroneous decision.”

    Here is the petition:

    After procedural responses, we will see if SCOTUS takes on the case or denies it without a word in another act of deliberate indifference — the Roberts court has disappointed in the past. Questions about the Chief Justice have eroded confidence in the courts being a venue where recourse for gun owners is possible.

    Add to that questions about the new judges added by Donald Trump, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett. When are we going to see some of that pro-Second Amendment fidelity our national “gun advocacy” groups were promising us was just around the corner when they were exhorting us to loudly support their confirmations?

    If SCOTUS either punts on or rules against George Young, gun owners will have their answers.

    TACCOM Cheek Riser Adjustable Buttstock -The Firearm Blog

    Continuing to expand their competition shooting-oriented product line, TACCOM has recently released a new AR-15 stock called Cheek Riser Adjustable Buttstock. Despite the minimalistic design, this stock has a high level of adjustability that includes a length of pull, cheekpiece height, buttplate height and cant adjustments. Let’s take a closer look.

    New TACCOM Cheek Riser Adjustable Buttstock (5)

    TACCOM Cheek Riser Adjustable Buttstock – AR15 Variation

    The TACCOM Cheek Riser Adjustable Buttstock is available in two versions called AR15 and M&P variations. The M&P variation was initially designed for Smith & Wesson M&P 15-22 rimfire rifles, however, it is compatible with any mil-spec AR-15 buffer tube. The AR15 variation comes with its own round buffer tube and compared to the other model, provides more adjustment options as the buttstock assembly can be rotated around the buffer tube. As described by the manufacturer, this feature will allow changing where the center line of the rifle can be in relation to your body.

    New TACCOM Cheek Riser Adjustable Buttstock (3)

    TACCOM Cheek Riser Adjustable Buttstock – M&P Variation

    The components of TACCOM Cheek Riser Adjustable Buttstock are made of aluminum and Delrin. The single side screw is used for both clamping the stock to the buffer tube and fixing the position of the cheek riser and buttplate shaft. The length of pull adjustment range for both models is 10.5″ to 15″. The overall weights of AR15 and M&P variation stocks are 11 oz and 6 oz respectively. The general design of this buttstock is symmetrical and the cheek riser can be installed on either side making this stock useable for both right- and left-handed shooters.

    The MSRP of the M&P variation of TACCOM Cheek Riser Adjustable Buttstock is $89.95 and the AR15 variation is listed on the company’s website at $149.95.

    Umarex Introduces the Gauntlet 2 Pre-Charged Pneumatic Air RifleThe Firearm Blog

    Fans of air guns will be happy to hear that Umarex has updated one of its more popular pre-charged pneumatic air rifles – the Gauntlet. The Gauntlet 2 claims to offer many improvements over the first-gen Gauntlet air rifle like a refined look, a larger air tank and increased regulated pressure at the tank. The Gauntlet 2 will be available in both .22 and .25 calibers.

    Umarex Introduces the Gauntlet 2 Pre-Charged Pneumatic Air Rifle

    Fort Smith, Arkansas — Umarex USA, innovator, manufacturer, and marketer of airguns, optics, and accessories for outdoor enthusiasts is pleased to announce it is running the Gauntlet again! The Gauntlet 2 pre-charged pneumatic (PCP) is all new for 2021. Umarex Airguns is bringing substantial improvements over the first generation Gauntlet and its direct competitors. The new Gauntlet 2 will be available in both .22 and .25 calibers and bring a refined look and a new performance potential to shooters looking for an alternative to rimfire rifles or the discerning air gun shooter in aim of the 10-ring.

    Ergonomics mean everything when it comes to handling any tool and air rifles are no different. The new Umarex Gauntlet 2 stock has been optimized with esthetic design changes as well as functional improvements that captivate the eyes and meld with the body. Its new high-strength polymer stock is molded in Flat Dark Earth with the adjustable cheek rest accented in black. The stock has been slimmed down and trimmed in conspicuous places while still offering superb interaction, reduced weight, and synonymous feel for the shooter. This new approach accommodates M-LOK® accessories via the attachment points on three sides of the reinforced and lengthened forearm. Additionally, the new Gauntlet 2 is fitted with an easy-to-grip knurled cylindrical bolt handle that treats the shooter to a much more positive interface, especially in inclement weather.

    Umarex Airguns raised the bar with improved performance in this new edition to their PCP lineup. The Gauntlet 2’s new onboard air tank has been increased to 24 cubic inches from the first generation’s 13 cubic inch tank. The biggest news for the Gauntlet 2, however, is the increased regulated pressure. Shooters picking up the .22 caliber Gauntlet 2 will find the regulated shot pressure at 1,900 PSI and the .25 caliber Gauntlet 2 tank regulated at 2,100 PSI. Velocities for .22 and .25 caliber pellets will hover in the 1050 FPS and 980 FPS range using lightweight lead pellets and energy levels in the 33 FPE and 51 FPE range with popular standard weight pellets, respectively. The huge 24 cubic inch tank also works to increase the shot count by 17% in .22 caliber to 70+ shots and 85% in .25 caliber to 50+ shots. Even though the Gauntlet 2 is producing substantially more muzzle energy than the original Gauntlet, additional baffling in the barrel assembly works to reduce the noise level by 8dB in both calibers. Mounting a scope on the new Gauntlet 2 is also easier than ever with a Picatinny style optics rail now topping off the receiver.

    Umarex USA has run the Gauntlet again by refining the lauded Gauntlet platform to create a powerful and pleasing PCP pellet rifle that, in typical Umarex Airgun fashion, offers exceptional power and exceptional value for the consumer’s shooting dollars. The Gauntlet 2 will be offered at fine airgun retailers and the Umarex USA webstore at a MSRP of $449.99.

    Final Defendant Pleads Guilty in Case Involving 58 Firearms Stolen From Gun Store

    Maryland shut down an important part of a recent gun bill. IMG NRA-ILA

    DAYTON – -(AmmoLand.com)- Three Dayton men have admitted in federal court that they conspired to steal 58 firearms from Target World in Sharonville in June 2018.

    Lamont Hancock, 22, pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Dayton yesterday afternoon. Miyauhn Vineyard, 21, pleaded guilty in January 2021 and Michael Sanford, 26, pleaded guilty in February 2021.

    According to court documents, on June 17, 2018, the co-conspirators parked in an adjacent parking lot and cut off an exterior door lock to the store. The individuals then smashed display cases in the retail area of the store and stole 58 firearms.

    Two days later, the ATF recovered 10 of the firearms through a third-party sale.

    Each of the defendants pleaded guilty to conspiring to steal firearms from a federal firearms licensee, a crime punishable by up to five years in prison.

    This case is being prosecuted as part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), the centerpiece of the Department of Justice’s violent crime reduction efforts. PSN is an evidence-based program proven to be effective at reducing violent crime. Through PSN, a broad spectrum of stakeholders work together to identify the most pressing violent crime problems in the community and develop comprehensive solutions to address them. As part of this strategy, PSN focuses enforcement efforts on the most violent offenders and partners with locally-based prevention and reentry programs for lasting reductions in crime.

    Vipal J. Patel, Acting United States Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio, and Roland Herndon, Special Agent in Charge, U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) announced the plea entered into today before U.S. District Judge Michael J. Newman. Assistant United States Attorney Ryan A. Saunders and Deputy Criminal Chief Dominick S. Gerace are representing the United States in this case.

    The Q Honey Badger And Thunder ChickenThe Firearm Blog

    SILENCER SATURDAY #176: The Q Honey Badger And Thunder Chicken

    Good morning everyone and welcome back to another edition of TFB’s Silencer Saturday brought to you by Yankee Hill Machine, manufacturers of the YHM Resonator and Resonator K line of rifle suppressors. Last week we got some time behind the Gemtech Integra .22LR suppressed upper, a super-quiet, integrally suppressed option for plinking and training. This week we check in with a couple of old friends – the Q Honey Badger 300BLK PDW and Thunder Chicken suppressor. This is a light, very quiet combination that will make even the most surly of shooters smile. Does it hold up after a few years of industry advancements? Let’s take a look.

    Q @ TFB:

    Make no mistake, when we are talking about 300BLK PDW replacements for pistol caliber carbines and submachine guns, the Honey Badger is as OG as it gets. The Q version is a direct descendant of the original AAC design that was meant to unseat the H&K MP5SD as the military’s special forces covert assault gun. After many years and a few employment changes, the Q team finally brought the Honey Badger to the public in 2017.

    The Honey Badger SD system is a short barrel rifle with a direct thread suppressor tucked under a hand guard is the truest form of the original design, but the more popular variant is the Honey Badger Pistol that, without a silencer, is a very compact personal defense weapon that can be easily carried in a pack or bag. I won’t go into all the pistol stabilizing brace drama over the years, but I’ve taken the extra time and expense to register it as an SBR using the Form 1 “Maker” process, mostly to have the option to use a vertical foregrip.

    SILENCER SATURDAY #176: The Q Honey Badger And Thunder Chicken

    My love for the SIG MCX platform is well documented, but I have a lot of love to throw around. The iconic Q shorty has attributes that can’t be found anywhere else. I’ve grabbed this pistol on more occasions than I can count and one of the only reasons I don’t talk about it more often is availability concerns. But now that nothing is available, I can talk up the Honey Badger and hope I won’t get as much hate mail or vitriolic Instagram comments from hungry customers.

    Honey Badger Pros:

    • Ultra-light
    • Brace or stock integration
    • Super slim hand guard system
    • Dead sexy

    • Tentative Lead Time: 15 Months
    • MSRP: $2,999.00

    As fun and as useful as the Q Honey Badger pistol is, there are a few points that may push some buyers to PDW’s from other manufacturers. If you have read my drivel over the years, you already know that I don’t feed on clickbait gun postings (1911’s still suck). I truly believe that there is no single perfect, handgun/rifle/shotgun for everyone. Every characteristic will rank differently to different shooters. The Honey Badger is no different.

    Honey Badger Cons:

    • Availability/Price
    • Proprietary stock/brace system
    • “I want a black rifle” – Literally and figuratively.

    Yes, the Honey Badger has AR-15 attributes, but it it’s enough of a departure from traditional designs that some shooters may prefer a simpler form and functions. My original analysis still stands: If you have the means, I highly suggest you pick one up.

    SILENCER SATURDAY #176: The Q Honey Badger And Thunder Chicken

    SILENCER SATURDAY #176: The Q Honey Badger And Thunder Chicken

    But this is Silencer Saturday, so where’s the silencer? Fine. The Thunder Chicken is Q’s full-size 7.62mm suppressor that uses the Cherry Bomb mount attachment. Yes, it’s very quiet with subsonic ammunition. “Backyard” quiet is a term I’ve used in the past. The shorter Trash Panda is the preferred pairing with this slight PDW, but since I am a decibel junky, the Thunder Chicken is the obvious choice.

    Thunder Chicken Suppressor – https://www.liveqordie.com/products/thunder-chicken-by-q/

    • CALIBER: 7.62 NATO / 300 BLK / 300 WM
    • SILENCER WEIGHT:  14.7 oz
    • MUZZLE BRAKE WEIGHT:  2 oz
    • DIAMETER:  1.75″
    • OVERALL LENGTH:  8.13″
    • ATTACHMENT: Quickie Fast-Attach
    • MATERIAL(S):  100% Titanium
    • FINISH:  PVD
    • MINIMUM BARREL LENGTH: None
    • MSRP: $1,150.00
    • Buy At Silencer Shop: $1,100 (Approximate based on local dealer pricing)

    I’ve shot the Honey Badger with a half dozen other suppressors that were either direct-thread or outfitted with the Q Plan B mounting system. The Thunder Chicken still holds it’s own after a few years of development. Whether or not it is still the quietest 7.62mm option available is a debate for another Saturday.

    My hope for the future is a series of Q silencers that have modular setups that can accept other manufacturers flash hiders and brakes. These designs are worth future-proofing.

    SILENCER SATURDAY #176: The Q Honey Badger And Thunder Chicken

    SILENCER SATURDAY #176: The Q Honey Badger And Thunder Chicken

    The Honey Badger and Thunder Chicken combination is a fun, quiet and ultra-compact system that can be used for everything from hunting to personal protection. There’s a reason that this setup was developed and it certainly checks off all my boxes. Only you can really decide if it fits your needs as well.

    The Honey Badger is probably one of the most iconic firearms of the day. So much so that it has even infiltrated video games and can be found in Call of Duty. But what is it? It is the original 300 Blackout PDW. Though in fairness, it was designed originally Not For a purely defensive role… The Honey Badger was designed in conjunction with 300 Blackout to fill the role that the aging MP5SD filled for certain special units within the U.S. Military. Fast forward a number of years and we have commercially available 300 Blackout as well as the new and improved Honey Badger by Q LLC.

    Trump-Rejecting Republican Has Plan to Drive Gun Owners from GOP

    Miami’s “Republican” mayor says this is how GOP candidates must lead if they expect to win elections. You have to wonder which Party he’s trying to kill. (Francis Suarez/Facebook)

    U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “The Trump-rejecting Florida Republican who has a plan to fix the GOP Miami Mayor Francis Suarez has a message for leaders in Washington,” Politico reports. “Start thinking more like mayors.”

    “Suarez is a Cuban Republican, but he doesn’t match some of the usual headlines surrounding Cuban American voters,” we are told. “For one, he didn’t vote for Trump in the 2020 election. He doesn’t have a great relationship with DeSantis, either, and has criticized him openly and done little to support him politically. He even voted for DeSantis’ 2018 Democratic opponent, Andrew Gillum.”

    In other words, he voted to help empower the Biden gun-grab agenda. And he tried to inflict a gun-grabbing, crystal meth-abusing, adulterous vomiter supported by socialists who sing songs about killing their enemies with knives and guns on his gun-owning constituents. I’m not making any of that up.

    You’d think for a Cuban American, Suarez would understand the evil of the “¿Armas para que?” violence monopoly the tyrant Castro imposed to enslave the island under communism. You’d think the experiences and insights of those who escaped and know the essential relationship between an armed people and freedom would be the stronger influence.

    Instead, Suarez in effect says that in order to win elections, more Republicans need to join him in demanding prior restraints on a fundamental right via so-called “universal background checks” that, according to the National Institute of Justice:

    “Effectiveness depends on the ability to reduce straw purchasing, requiring gun registration…”

    Suarez in effect says that in order to win elections, more Republicans need to join him and his fellow mayors in demanding to criminalize and indefinitely delay private transfers.

    And naturally, when it comes to immigration policy, Suarez says the winning strategy for Republicans is to favor “new shapers” (those would be foreign nationals) over “ourselves and our Posterity.” That’s despite all credible polling and all real-world experience proving cultural terraforming combined with a “pathway to citizenship” runs consistently around 70% to 30% in favor of  Democrats and citizen disarmament.

    That, of course, is right in line with Establishment Republican interests, the ones who, like Suarez opposed the agenda that Donald Trump campaigned and that those who voted for him consider existential.

    So it’s no surprise we see former House Speaker John Boehner, now that he no longer needs our votes, declaring “America First …  is one of the nuttiest things I’ve ever seen,” and “that gun control would be a top priority ‘if’ he were Speaker now.” And it’s even less of a surprise to see former President George W. Bush throwing out words that play right into Democrat hands like “isolationist” and “nativist” and not forgetting to throw the right to keep and bear arms under the bus:

    “Bush remained hopeful that a more moderate Republican — one who supported reasonable gun reform measures, increased public school funding and a path to citizenship for undocumented workers, among other policies — could succeed in the party’s 2024 presidential primary.”

    That’s despite an NRA endorsement that, tellingly, only mentioned “hunting and sport shooting” and promoted the asinine contention that “the Constitution gives people the personal right to bear arms.” (With former Democrat aides Wayne LaPierre and Chris Cox being the only gun group “leaders” with Trump’s ear, no wonder he got the “give’ business wrong.)

    Are Republicans really stupid enough to believe they can take the fire out of the bellies of their core constituents and give the Democrats everything they demand? And still not be ruthlessly attacked as “extreme”?

    What is it leftist influencers are now saying about Boehner? His betrayal only earned him their contempt. And do you think they’re motivated to take back the “renegade right-wing extremist” charge against Bush? Even with his inner circle making a big show of abandoning the GOP?

    This is what Suarez says Republicans need to project in order to win? That and be like Bloomberg’s mayors?

    “GOP leadership has no clue what their base believes in,” Wayne Allyn Root writes on WND.com. He lists 14 statements he made at GOP events where he was the keynote speaker, each resulting in “wild applause” from the attendees, the very Republican voters the tone-deaf  GOP establishment refuses to acknowledge, let alone listen to.

    So naturally, Nikki Haley, the epitome of an establishment Republican, is considering Suarez as a running mate if she decides to run for president in 2024.

    It’s almost like their goal is an elephants’ graveyard.

    New Line of Manurhin Revolvers from Beretta USA -The Firearm Blog

    As a kid, I was living in France and I remember standing behind a Security Officer on an escalator, on our way up from the underground. He was carrying a safety box, obviously with something valuable inside, and as we prepared to get out in the open he opened his holster and put his hand on his revolver. Perhaps it was a Manurhin MR73 Gendarmerie? I’ll never know for sure, but this series of revolvers was developed specifically for the requirements of the French Gendarmerie and special service units of the French Police and Military.

    Beretta USA is now bringing these revolvers stateside. They feature cold hammer-forged barrels, target adjustable sights, an ergonomic target grip for enhanced recoil mitigation and a target trigger with adjustable overtravel.

    Here’s what Beretta has to say in the announcement:

    Beretta USA Launches Line of Manurhin Revolvers

    Accokeek, MD (May, 2021) – Beretta USA is excited to announce the inclusion of Manurhin revolvers into our commercial product line-up. The official launch of this new line will take place this week at the 2021 USPSA LOCAP Nationals in Talladega, AL.

    The French company Chapuis Armes, a world leader in hunting firearms, has manufactured, produced, and distributed the legendary Manurhin revolvers for nearly 20 years. These storied firearms benefit from the expertise and craftsmanship of Chapuis Armes’ gunsmiths for quality and finish. The full range of Manurhin revolvers fulfills the needs of target shooters and law enforcement officers worldwide.

    The Manurhin MR73 series of revolvers were explicitly developed for the requirements of the French Gendarmerie and special service units of the French Police and Military. The pistols feature exceptional accuracy and proven reliability, tested with tens of thousands of rounds of full power .357 Mag ammunition during durability testing.

    “Beretta is proud to have the opportunity to bring the best revolver in the world to the US market in cooperation with our sister company, Chapuis Armes – the parent company of Manurhin. These products are in keeping with our philosophy of producing the best offerings on the market, and we are excited to enter into the revolver market with such a storied brand and the renowned MR73 series specifically,” Erik Stern, Tactical and Pro-Shop Product Manager, said.

    The MR73 Gendarmerie 4” and MR73 Sport 5.25” will be the first Manurhin products that Beretta will import and include into the current premium product line-up. The accurate and durable MR73 series features cold hammer-forged barrels, target adjustable sights, an ergonomic target grip for enhanced recoil mitigation, and a premium target trigger that is adjustable for overtravel.

    The cold hammer-forged barrel allows for enhanced durability and world-class accuracy. Cold hammer-forging processes provide the highest level of repeatability and consistency possible in the industry and are standard for Manurhin revolvers.

    The LPA target adjustable rear sight allows the shooter to make macro and micro-adjustments for wind and elevation as necessary, making any adjustments needed for longer range shooting a snap.

    The MR series of revolvers ships with a highly ergonomic target grip created by the legendary Jacques Trausch. These grips are known for extreme recoil mitigation (especially with full-house .357 Magnum loads) and high levels of shooter control and allow for increased accuracy, faster follow-up shots, and limit recoil transfer to the shooter’s hands.

    All Manurhin MR73 series revolvers feature a triple adjustable trigger with an overtravel screw built into the trigger as well as a hammer force adjustment screw and a hammer spring weight adjustment screw built into the frame. This high level of adjustability allows for the shooter to dial in the trigger to the precise specifications needed for maximum control over the shot.

    Starting today, consumers can visit one of our three Beretta Gallery locations (New York, Dallas, and Memphis) and select Beretta Dealers to learn more about and purchase one of these world-class revolvers.
