Blog clean up...

 Well, I went through the blog last night and did a bunch of clean up. Sadly, 83 more blogs have been removed for being over a year old. 

What really hurts is the number, while small, of female gun bloggers we lost.

If you know any female gun bloggers or sites, please let us know. It is important to get the word out that there ARE women who shoot. 

I would like to thank all of you bloggers out there who are continuing to put out content and staying viable in this world. 

We are coming up on 10 years as a blog. North started this blog back in 2011, more or less as a joke, because of what we were expecting from a second Obama term. North, Jay G, and Kevin were the original three that pushed it and got as many blogs as they did. I took it over in 2013 after the others had to leave for professional reasons (can't blog AND be a paid gun writer). Mark came on and has been a great help these last 8 years. 

But most of all, thank YOU for continuing to read our various scribbles. These next years are going to be interesting, and all we can do is to hunker down and be ready for whatever comes.

Stay safe, check six, and keep on keeping on!

Sig Sauer recall!!!

 Sig Sauer issued a safety recall on all of their CROSS Bolt-Action Rifles today. They say that you should stop using the rifle immediately as at least one rifle had a delayed discharge after the trigger was pulled.

From their email announcing the safety recall:

NEWINGTON, N.H., (November 25, 2020) – Today Sig Sauer, Inc. is announcing a safety recall for the CROSS Bolt-Action Rifle, and consumers should immediately discontinue use of the rifle.  This recall applies to all CROSS Bolt-Action rifles currently manufactured. 


Sig Sauer has viewed an online video that presents a single CROSS Bolt-Action Rifle with a potential safety concern.  This gun has been returned to Sig Sauer and upon evaluation it has been confirmed that the rifle exhibited a delayed discharge after the trigger was pulled.  Sig Sauer has decided to issue a safety recall in order to implement a modification to the firing action to address this potential safety concern.


To register for the recall process please visit sigsauer.com/crossrecall or call Sig Sauer Customer Service at 603-610-3000, option 1.  Following registration Sig Sauer will further communicate with you to arrange for the return of your rifle to Sig Sauer for the safety improvement.  All shipment and replacement costs will be covered by Sig Sauer. 


Sig Sauer is committed to providing the highest quality, industry leading firearms in the marketplace and is requesting that consumers take immediate action and follow the recall process as described.
