Hornady designs a gun safe that is both sturdy and affordable

Hornady designs a sturdy, yet affordable, gun safe option that is ideal for concealed carry holders. Watch this open box review!

One of the biggest priorities when owning a handgun is making sure that it is properly secured at all times. When your weapon is neither holstered nor needed, the best place for it is in a gun safe that is easily accessible.

New gun safes with fancy finger print keypads, internal alarms, and GPS tracking are really great products, but are not always the practical option in terms of price. Hornady has designed the TriPoint Gun Safe that is both sturdy and affordable.

MythBusting: Is a handgun still reliable without an extractor? [VIDEO]

As many of you may have heard, I have recently joined the team of writers over at Wide Open Spaces. I would love to continue to share my articles with all of you and will still continue to keep up with the High Heels and Handguns blog. I just enjoy it too much!

One of my most recent articles including a video disproving a statement that a handgun will still continuously fire without an extractor. Let me know what you think!

Can you successfully fire a handgun without an extractor? James from TFB TV finds out for you in his myth-busting YouTube video.

Have you ever wondered if your handgun would work successfully without the extractor? Lucky for you, you don’t have to test this out for yourself.

YouTube channel TFB TV shares their myth-busting experiment to show what happens when you remove an extractor and then try to fire.

Inspired by a comment from another YouTube user, TFB TV decided to test the statement that a handgun will continuously fire successfully without an extractor. As shown in this video, the myth was busted. Once the extractor was removed, the handgun was no longer considered reliable. Although there were a few cases that the gun fed correctly, the majority of the shots did not.

An extractor typically works in conjunction with the ejector to remove empty cartridges from the fired weapon, which in turn preps the chamber to successfully load the next round. Without the extractor in place, the gun can usually fire only one round. Trying to shoot after this shot would likely cause a misfire because the next round would not be able to load properly into the chamber.

Apple iWatch Designer Recreates the 486 Shotgun

Many of us know Marc Newson as the designer for the next generation of Apple products. However, his recent design is even better than the iWatch.

Marc Newson, designer of Apple’s latest iWatch creation, has partnered with Italian firearm manufacturer Beretta to design a more modernized version of Beretta’s 486 side-by-side double barreled shotgun.

Newson was first approached by Gussalli Beretta over three years ago and agreed to take part in designing a 21st century version of the Beretta 486 shotgun. The results are absolutely phenomenal and make gun-enthusiasts like me ask “what iWatch?”

Legally Armed Uber Driver Stops Mass Shooting in Logan Square

An attempted mass shooting ended with no innocent bystanders injured all thanks to a law-abiding Uber driver with a gun, in Chicago of all places!

An armed man began shooting into a crowd of people at Logan Square in Chicago late Friday night. After witnessing everything from his vehicle, an Uber driver with a concealed carry permit immediately responded to what could have been a horrible incident by pulling his own weapon and firing six shots at the gunman.

The gunman was later identified as 22-year-old Everardo Custodio, who is currently being treated for gunshot wounds to the thigh, shin, and lower back at Advocate Illinois Masonic hospital.

According to the Chicago Tribune, the Uber driver was in a parked car nearby when he witnessed Custodio shooting into a crowd of pedestrians at the 2900 block of North Milwaukee Avenue. The driver, who has only been identified as a 47-year-old male from Little Italy, fired six shots at the gunman and remained at the scene until police arrived. He immediately presented his valid concealed carry permit and firearms owner’s identification card.

Veterans Memorial ‘too inappropriate’ for public park

A fallen soldier memorial leaves the Village Council concerned, specifically because the gun in the statue is inappropriate for the park.

Battlefield Cross Too Inappropriate for Park in Michigan [VIDEO]

Friends of American Veterans submitted a proposal to complete their Veterans Memorial at the Central Park in Milford, Michigan. However, the group has not received approval specifically because the monument features an M-16 rifle that is viewed as too inappropriate for the park.

The current plan for the Veteran’s Memorial is to feature an eight-foot-tall battlefield cross, which includes combat boots, an M-16 rifle, a helmet, and dog tags, at the front entrance to the park.

Village manager Christian Wuerth claims that the council understands the meaning of the monument, but doesn’t think it belongs there, as reported by Detroit Free Press.

“There was some concern from a couple of members regarding the specific memorial that’s proposed,” said Wuerth. “Specifically, the gun. They understood the history of (the memorial) and the meaning of it, they just didn’t feel it was appropriate for that specific location.”
