Rener Gracie discusses firearm retention during an attack and demonstrates the ability to cover your slide while firing, thus protecting it from being stripped away from you.

This technique will cause your firearm to jam after each shot, forcing you to rack the slide to chamber another round.

Does the benefit of added control over your weapon compensate for the limited firing capability?

It is a very interesting concept, and may be applicable in close-contact fighting.  Does anyone have any experience in such situations? How do you feel covering your weapon and utilizing your elbow strikes compares to having your support hand free to push your attacker back?

A thief breaks into your house while you and your family are away.  He rummages through every drawer and shelf.  He finds your gun vault and begins to work on opening it.  He knows what’s inside and he wants to get his hands on it.  If you’ve spent good money on that vault, here’s to hoping they don’t get in.  He then checks the usual places in the bedroom where he knows guns are typically hidden.  Here’s to hoping he doesn’t find them.  In a perfect world, this would never happen.  But we don’t live in a perfect world.  Take a look at these videos and make a decision.  Are Tactical Walls a necessity in your home?

 

In this video SOOTCHOO sensibly talks about reasons for installing one of these units in your home.  In a recent break-in, the thieves walked right past the concealed weapons!

 

Recently, a Samurai sword was discovered in a carry-on bag at the Boston Logan International Airport and a knife was found under the insole of a shoe at Detroit Metropolitan Airport.After its annual review, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) released a shocking list of weapons confiscated from passengers trying to board planes in the past year. The deadly haul of weapons included maces, fake suicide vests and an assortment of concealed guns and knives.

 

Facebook to stop all weapons advertising

Facebook to stop all weapons advertising

If you’re a gun enthusiast, Facebook is about to kill most of the pages you enjoy visiting. If you’re a weapons manufacturer who relies on Facebook to sell your goods, be prepared for a significant drop in sales because things are about to get ugly.

In a press statement released March 5th Facebook writes:

“We do not permit advertising for illegal drugs, tobacco products, prescription pharmaceuticals, weapons and several other products…we have systems in place to review and remove advertising that violates our policies…”

In this one sweeping statement, Facebook has officially announced that pages belonging to firearms manufacturers can no longer exist on the world’s largest social media outlet. This has broad and dramatic implications for companies who invest heavily on social engagement to sell, promote and advertise their products. You might soon have to say goodbye to the Glock page. Say goodbye to the SigSauer page. Say goodbye to ALL OF THEM because the wording is very clear: Facebook does not permit advertising for weapons. Yes, this includes knife manufacturers too.

It is unclear if and when Facebook will begin erecting gates to prevent weapons companies from entering into the world’s single biggest user group but one thing is for sure…a lot of people will be negatively affected. Jobs will be lost.  Companies might have to close down.  You see, Facebook is the great equalizer.  It is the one tool, the one service that allows small companies to compete on a level playing field with industry giants.  In many cases, it is the only tool that allows small businesses to drive traffic to their e-commerce site.  Tread carefully over the next few days and upcoming months and keep a pulse on this evolving story.

While the outlook is dark for some of the major players in weapons manufacturing it could be down right disastrous for small and medium sized businesses. The Funker Tactical Social Media Management team has come up with a list of recommendations to protect your company from losing potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of investment money allocated for social media engagement.

Do you think that Facebook is unfairly targeting the firearms community?

Are they justtified in categorizing legal firearms with illegal drugs in the same broad category?

Do you feel as if this is politically motivated?
