California/West Coast burger lovers will understand the reference, but the real beef is in this video here where my buddy Jerry Miculek rapid fires 20 rounds from two, double-barreled 1911s by Arsenal Firearms. Miculek dumps 20 rounds in an amazing 1.5 seconds using the model AF2011.

Supreme Court Says Convicted Felons Can Sell Their Guns
WASHINGTON — May 18, 2015, 10:56 AM ET
By SAM HANANEL Associated Press
A unanimous Supreme Court ruled Monday that the government can't prevent a convicted felon who is barred from possessing firearms from trying to sell his guns after they are confiscated by authorities.
The justices sided with Tony Henderson, a former U.S. Border Patrol agent who agreed to turn over his collection of 19 firearms to the FBI as a condition of release after he was arrested and charged with distributing marijuana.
After he pleaded guilty, Henderson wanted to sell the weapons valued at more than $3,500 to a friend, or transfer them to his wife. But lower courts found that doing so would technically give Henderson possession of the weapons in violation of the law. Prosecutors also said they were concerned that Henderson's friend or wife might give him access to the weapons.

Not only is an NRA membership affordable at just $25/year, you get a host of free benefits simply for being a member of the NRA.
Most notable is the $2,500 worth of firearms insurance but you also get travel and accident benefits. The value of these free services is $7,500 but that jumps up to $12,500 for Lifetime NRA members. They call this package the "Trio of Security" (firearms insurance, travel benefits, accident benefits) and you can easily and quickly sign up at http://www.nraendorsedinsurance.com/no-cost-trio-of-security.
It literally took me 3 minutes to fill out the online form and activate my benefits. With all the guns I own, I can use all the insurance I can get!
If you're not an NRA member, you can get a $10 discount if you sign up through my referral link: http://bit.ly/1rZyctJ
For more on NRA member benefits, check out this video below. I appear at the 4:28 minute mark.
The Sphinx 3000 in 9mm and .45ACP are guns where if you have one you better keep it, and if you find one you better buy it!
These are awesome guns and I encourage you to find one and shoot it. Sphinx is a company owned by the same company as KRISS Vector and the Swiss-precision in the Sphinx takes this handgun to a whole different level.
Here's a short video of me shooting the blue one in .45ACP and talking about the Sphinx 3000.

(Ammoland.com)- Over the past couple of years, I’ve had the distinct pleasure of getting to know competitive shooter and chef Chris Cheng.
You might remember him from his Top Shot Season Four victory.
If you read on, you’ll also learn that he won the annual Professional Outdoor Media Association’s Top Chef title. Seems he’s just an all-around top guy, and one of the nicest folks you’ll ever meet. Oh, one more thing, he’s now a published author with the recent release of his new book Shoot to Win.
I thought it would be fun to con Chris into an interview so you can get to know him a little better and learn what a great ambassador he is for the shooting sports.
Don’t tell him this is an interview, I told him my Mom wanted some background info before inviting him over for a meatloaf supper…
AmmoLand: We all know that shows like Top Shot are heavily edited, so we want some insider scoop about some of the stuff that happened that didn’t make the final edit cuts. Since all the competitors share a house, you must know who sleeps with a security blankie. Fess up, who?
Chris Cheng: Tom, I told you about my blankie in confidence. Will I ever be able to trust you again? Buy me a bourbon the next time we hang out and the answer is yes.
There are two main things that I think are worth mentioning. First, viewers got to watch all the exciting parts when the reality was we were sitting around waiting for stuff to happen most of the time. The entire competition took six weeks and we were cooped up in the Top Shot house the entire time. We’d wake up, get ready, and then it would just be a waiting game to find out when we’d be going down to the Top Shot range or take care of interviews. The moments where we’d actually get to shoot something were of course very exciting because we’d be deprived of it for so many hours.

Thank you for supporting me and The Second Scoop. It's been a lot of fun delivering the week's big gun news and I'm looking forward to seeing you each week.
A fascinating issue has cropped up with the latest legal challenge from a company called Defense Distributed, who has recently made headlines by announcing its Ghost Gunner machine, an affordable portable CNC machine that can complete an AR-15 80% lower. The benefit of going this route is that you can buy an 80% lower without going through the government, so they will never know that you own the gun.
This current legal challenge is in regards to a two year old letter from the U.S. State Department stating that Defense Distributed was violating U.S. law by posting a file to the internet that was the blueprint for 3-D printing a pistol.
The legal argument is that the file is free speech and is protected by the First Amendment.
My personal opinion is that with CNC machines and 3-D printers dropping in cost, any attempts to regulate what can be built will simply be in vain. The internet empowers the entire world with knowledge, and the ability for a people to make their own weapons could possibly lead to revolutions in countries with dictatorships.
America rose up to fight against the Brits using firearms, and we won our freedom. What if North Koreans were able to print their own guns to stand and fight against Kim Jong Un? Or Mexicans who need to protect themselves from corrupt cops participating in the drug trade? You know, that whole tyranny thing.
The internet paired with 3-D printers and portable CNC machines could be a liberating force for good.
The above is my opinion, but for more, Wired covers the story more in depth:
