  1. When you travel it can be one of the most vulnerable times for you and your family. You will be in a strange place and probably will not know your surroundings well. These can lead to you ending up in "bad neighborhoods" where crime could be rampant, or your chances for victimization will greatly increase. I've recently had the pleasure of traveling with a firearm and so far every time the process has been pretty easy and straight forward. I've only traveled with Southwest Airlines but the process should be similar for other carriers. View full article
  2. When you travel it can be one of the most vulnerable times for you and your family. You will be in a strange place and probably will not know your surroundings well. These can lead to you ending up in "bad neighborhoods" where crime could be rampant, or your chances for victimization will greatly increase. I've recently had the pleasure of traveling with a firearm and so far every time the process has been pretty easy and straight forward. I've only traveled with Southwest Airlines but the process should be similar for other carriers. Knowing What Is Required To Fly With a Firearm To help streamline the process and limit the chances you get caught up in some lengthy squabble with the TSA or gate agents you need to know what is required to fly with a firearm. The biggest thing is to make sure you give yourself enough time at the ticketing counter and to go through security (AKA: Don't arrive 15 minutes before your flight). When you fly with a firearm it must go inside your checked baggage in a hard-sided locked container, and it must be unloaded. Ammo must be stored separately from the firearm, and in an approved container. The Best Way To Fly With A Gun As we mentioned above a hard sided container that can lock is a requirement for flying with a firearm. Most of the time any quality gun purchase will include a hard-sided container that you can easily lock. But if you want to fly with a little extra protection and security Pelican makes an awesome Hard-sided Gun Case, that is TSA approved. The firearm must be completely unloaded, that means not a round in the chamber or a loaded magazine in the firearm. Though the guidelines suggest that having a loaded magazine inside the locked case is okay, it just can not be inside the firearm. I suggest not having ammo inside the locked case at all just to be on the safe side, and avoid dealing with the "wonderful" people of the TSA. The next thing you will need is a lock to secure the case. You can use just about any standard lock, either combination or key. Just make sure you have the key with you at all times, or the combination ready. The TSA can ask you to open the case at anytime so make sure you aren't fumbling around trying to appease them. Taking Some Ammo With You If you're taking a firearm chances are good you'll need some ammo with you. Ammunition must also travel inside checked baggage, and it must be stored inside fiber, wood, or metal boxes or other packaging designed to carry small amounts of ammo. Protip: Just keep the original manufacturers packaging when flying with ammo. It will make your life a lot easier Time To Declare Your Firearm TSA regulations require you to notify the ticketing agent that you have a firearm locked securely inside your baggage. Each airport/airline will probably be a little different but flying out of Detroit via Southwest has always been a breeze, has have the return flights from Sky Harbor out in Phoenix. When you approaching the counter you simply say "I need to declare a firearm". The ticketing agent will most likely provide a card for you to fill out with your name and information. On the reverse will be a little disclaimer about it being unloaded and etc. That's all there is to flying with a firearm within the TSA guidelines. Most of the time its going to be a easy and smooth process, just ensure the firearm is unloaded and locked, and that ammo is stored in a container properly.

  4. Ammo prices are about as volatile as gas prices these days with wide sweeping changes in prices overnight. When you find those killer deals that have you wanting to buy 1,000 rounds for a fraction of the cost you usually pay, you'll want to stockpile as much as you can of it. The better conditions you store your ammo in, the longer it will last. Granted in the digital age, deals like those come and go with the breeze, but one thing you can never be sure of is ammo supply overall. Not to long ago there was such a shortage of .22 ammo it was almost 5x its normal price and you still wouldn't be able to find it anywhere! So when you decide to stock up on ammo, you'll want to make sure you can keep that ammo safe and usable for when the time comes. Tip Numero Uno: Avoid Extreme Temperatures Keeping your ammo away from extreme temperatures until its time to use it is essential to it having a long shelf life. While ammo is designed to be used in just about any environment reliably it should not be stored in those harsh conditions. You can expect to get at least 10 years shelf life out of even the most mediocre of ammo brands. One area to be particularly concerned with as summer rolls around is storing your ammo in your vehicle. High heat has been shown to rapidly degrade the ammunition. Tip #2: Keep it Dry I am fairly certain I do not need to elaborate on this, but keeping your ammo dry is essential to it going bang when you need it to. The lower the humidity the better you will be in the long run with ammo storage. Humidity causes the corrosion to the brass casing, which can lead to failures pretty quick, which can be dangerous. After recently asking in the community, some members recommended storing the ammo in their original cardboard boxes to help suck up some of that moisture from the air. Not a bad tip at all. Tip #3: Keep The Air Out My final tip for properly storing your ammo is to keep the air out completely. We have all seen those air tight spam cans that look 50 years old, and you crack it open to find everything as good as new. Load a few rounds up and it still goes bang every single time. This is because those air tight containers also keep the moisture out! One of the leading causes of failure in ammo is when it starts to get old, chemicals are breaking down. Using these tips will help preserve that chemical mixture and allow your ammo to be usable for decades!
  5. How is everyone storing their ammo?

    I was thinking of writing about how I store my ammo and my experience with it, but before I do I am just wondering what everyone is using and how they're storing their ammunition.

  8. I just came across some ammo online in 9mm that apparently has some of the primers seated incorrectly (at wrong depths) https://ammomart.com/9mm-luger-legendary-ammo-115gr-irregular-lot-1000-rounds-warning-see-product-overview I'm just wondering what the draw back to that would be? At .149 cents a round it would have to be affected by approximately 50% of the rounds for the usual price I pay for target ammo in stores. Meaning this stuff would essentially be half priced. I just dont know if its safe, or if i should run it through any guns?

  15. Was at a gun show today and found a guy in the corner selling some ammo he makes by the name Crossfire Ammunition (http://crossfireammunition.com/). Has anyone ever heard of, or used this stuff? The guy was cool to talk with, seemed to know his ammo (but thats not hard to impress me with ammo talk since I know jack about it) so I went ahead and picked up 2 boxes from him. Got 9mm 115gr solid hollow points and a 10 pack of 300gr frangible hollow points for the 500SW. I was planning on going to the range tomorrow with some large melons and jugs of water, but I don't think I'll be able to make it now. So if anyone has any feedback on these let me know.

  17. What is the consensus about using less than lethal rounds for home defense? Would it be a good idea to disable and debilitate the threat vs eliminating it completely? I'm wondering for a liability and insurance type need. Would I be better off and likely avoid jail that way, vs killing someone.
  18. Anyone else been delayed in the NICS background check process? For the first time ever I got delayed for 48 hours recently. Was weird since I've probably purchased 20-30 different handguns and AR15's over the years was kind of shocked this happened.

  20. What type of ammo in weight/style should I be using for my EDC self defense carry weapon? Right now I've got 6 HP's followed with 6FMJs loaded in my gun but I am really curious to see what type of ammo everyone else is using, and if they mix it together like that.
  21. Just wondering how many people shoot whatever ammo they can find in their guns? I've never had an issue with steel cased ammo myself and im wondering if anyone else out there has similar experience or if steel cased ammo has given them problems. Steel cased ammo seems to be so much cheaper over brass for some reason, not real sure why, but that doesn't matter. the only thing I use it for is putting rounds down the range!
  22. What type of ammo is everyone using in their everyday carry gun of choice? I ran some cheap hallowpoints in my hipoint but they always fired so I wasn't super worried. and I knew i probably wouldn't have to shoot through concrete bricks and stuff lol.
  23. Gun Show Advertising?

    Do you have anything we can maybe place at a local gun show for people to see? Like a flyer or something we could print and leave at the entrance or pass around to people? I've joined a few sites the last couple weeks and so far I really like the community feeling here versus the mumbo jumbo of just social media sites. I'd really like to help this place take off and become something great for Ohioans.
  24. Can anyone explain barrel twist rate to me and what it means for the performance of a gun? What type or weight of ammo should be shot out of each one. I've been around for a little bit, but never paid much attention to these sort of scientific things. However I plan on doing my first competition shooting this year so I want to make sure I can get the most out of my rifle(s). One barrel has a twist rate of 1/7, and the other 1/8. Further more how can I tell the twist rate of a barrel if I do not know it? Is it stamped on barrels some place? Thanks for helping an old newbie out with what is probably a basic question regarding barrel twist rates.
