The Second Amendment

"A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed..." - Thomas Jefferson

These carefully crafted words define the natural rights of American citizenry to self-defense and resistance to oppression, internal or external, and the civic duty to act in the defense of the state should that become necessary.

Guns – Why Pay Full Price?

Firearms are generally not inexpensive. They are an investment in personal security, any number of shooting sports, and your 2nd Amendment right to bear arms. Depending on the firearm, they can range from several hundreds to several thousands of dollars. If well taken care of, they hold their value and last a lifetime or more, as evident from specimens that may have been around during World War I and still function flawlessly today.

The Venerable Revolver

A revolver is defined as a repeating handgun that has a revolving cylinder containing multiple chambers for ammunition and at a barrel for firing. The rounds may be fired by cocking a hammer manually for each shot or by pulling the trigger rearward repetitively to advance the revolving cylinder. These mechanics are known as single-action or double-action. Single-action revolvers can only be fired by cocking the hammer and then releasing it with the trigger. Single/double action revolvers still have an exposed hammer that can be cocked, facilitating either style of shooting, while others enclose the mechanism entirely in the body of the firearm, making them double-action only. It comes down to a matter of preference mostly, but having the single-action capability is typically favored by people who hunt or shoot competitively, as it take far less effort to drop the hammer with the trigger than having to pull the trigger through both phases of the action.

Revolver vs. Semi-Auto

A revolver is a type of handgun that has a revolving cylinder containing multiple chambers for cartridges and a barrel for firing them. Each time the trigger is pulled, the cylinder advances to the next chamber and the round is fired. Depending on caliber, most revolvers have a capacity of anywhere from 5 to 10 rounds of ammunition. Once all rounds are expended, the cylinder can be flipped open to extract the spent casings and insert new ammunition.
