Are you ready?  The anti-gun folks in the Illinois General Assembly have come out with the Aurora Gun Omnibus "Pro-Gun" Safety bill.  You like the title?  It's pro-gun!  Who can be opposed to pro-gun safety, right?

Trump Admin Seeks To Strip BATF of Alcohol & Tobacco Enforcement

Today's BATF would also get a new name: Bureau of Arson, Explosives and Firearms....

"If it plays in Peoria."  That's a common expression known nationwide and beyond.  Well, you could substitute Decatur for Peoria and get the same effect.  Downstate peeps are honked off at the radical, anti-gun political shenanigans in Springfield.  Along with other stuff most gun owners aren't so keen about. But the gun stuff is our deal.  And there's plenty...

Gun Review:  GLOCK G48 Single-Stack 9mm

GLOCK introduced the new Slimline model G48 earlier this year and showed it off at the SHOT Show. It's actually a longer-slide version of their new G43X pistol. Since it's the same size, some describe the G48 as a hybrid between the GLOCK G43X and the GLOCK 19. I would describe it as a two-tone, single-stack G19 pistol. The...
