Why Does Homeland Security Need 1.4 Million Round of Ammunition

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 22nd September 2012

In 2008, President Obama said, “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

The Department of Homeland Security has purchased 1.4 Million round of ammunition in the last six month. Questions about it go unanswered.  It has my attention. Yours, too?

Video – Just for a few of you…

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 21st August 2009

The Al Gore version of Global Warming has huge and dire consequences for our economy, the future of developing nations and our freedom from government intrusion. I’m convinced that Al doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

I’ve posted links to articles and videos contradicting Al Gore’s view on this blog before, but this Global Warming video is the most informative yet.

Warning: Don’t bother watching if you’re not interested in the subject – it’s 40 minutes long.

The Newbee-knows-best syndrome.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 16th August 2009

I’m always amazed when I get an email from a customer with very little experience carrying a concealed handgun, saying he really likes his new holster, but we made it ride too high.

I have a Google Alert set so that I am notified of gun forum posts about Tucker Gunleather, and I was alerted to one late last week. A customer had a brand new Tucker IWB holster for sale. Given our 100% guarantee, I wondered why he hadn’t called us to discuss it.

I contacted him to find out why he was selling it and he said it didn’t ride low enough so he can wear it with the grip just above his belt line.

I asked him how long he’d been carrying and the answer was that he’s just started. I asked him about his formal training and he’s had none. I asked why he wanted to carry the gun so low and he was very concerned about “printing.” (Chances are that he wasn’t actually printing in any noticeable way, but when you’re new to concealed carry, you’re paranoid someone will notice.)

I sent him a link to this post called “Buried Carry.” The jist of it is that you must be able to get a full firing grip on your pistol in the holster so you don’t have to re-grip on the way to the target under stress. A low carry requires grasping the gun with your thumb and a couple of fingers and then shifting your grip.

It works OK in practice most of the time, but it’s asking for trouble when your “fight or flight” response is in high gear and your fine motor skills are impaired because someone is about to shoot in your direction.

I don’t know what he’ll do, but my guess – he’ll ignore the advice, thinking he knows best.

When you consider that Tucker has been making premium holsters for thousands of people and gets wonderful “attaboys” from customers who know what they’re doing, and add in the extensive training Tucker has with the military, law enforcement, competition and special training you have to wonder about the “newbee knows best” syndrome.

It doesn’t really happen very often, so I’ll get over it and move on. I just want customers to benefit from our experience and not have to learn the hard way.

Note: All Tucker holsters allow for easy access to your pistol and a full-firing grip.

EPA Stifles Report that Says “No Global Warming.”

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 23rd July 2009

Some of you know that I’ve questioned the administrations position that Global Warming is a fact and there’s no debate left worth having.

Here’s a YouTube Video of a recent Fox News report that the EPA is sitting on a report that contradicts their position on global warming.

Don’t you love it when they hide stuff?

This totally infuriates…

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 10th February 2009

I’m absolutely in disbelief that this could happen. An Arizona rancher is being sued by a group of illegal aliens he stopped from crossing his ranch to illegally enter the U.S.

Do NOT read this if you have high blood pressure or there’s any likelihood the top of your head will blow off!

Climate change scare.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 9th February 2009

They’re still at it. The climate change “global warmists,” “gloom and doomers” and such are targeting your kids. Chicken Little still thinks the sky is falling.

I was at a gathering this week where the guy who helped Al Gore spread his propaganda said, “I’m often challenged by adults who don’t believe our global warming story, but we talk to the kids and they know it’s true. We’ll work on them.”

As I’ve said in previous posts that what really concerns me is the notion that “it’s been decided so don’t rock the boat with your stupid, ignorant, skeptical questions.”

There are thousands of scientists who do not think global warming is an issue or caused by humans, yet Obama and the dems are hell-bent on screwing with the economy to fix a problem that may not exist.

Check out this recent short video and see what you think.

Just say no to Eric Holder for U.S. Attorney General

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 14th January 2009

Eric Holder is no friend to gun owners and his views are off the mark in many other ways. Why did Obama nominate him for Attorney General if Obama truly believes in the 2nd Amendment? Obama doesn’t, really.

Here’s the scoop on Eric Holder.
