Sale ends tomorrow! JRH Enterprises is running a sale on new Third Generation AN/PVS-14 night vision weapons sight/monoculars–now with a five year warranty–for $2,995. I bought one of these from JRH last summer, and I love it. I have it mounted on a “flat top” AR, just behind an Aimpoint Comp 3 electronic red dot scope (with a 2 MOA adjustable brightness dot). With a flip of the throw-lever on the GG&G mount (sold separately) the PVS-14 detaches. This allows me to use it as a hand-held monocular, and makes the rifle available for daytime shooting. What a great combination! Orders yours, before close of business on Tuesday, February 16th. Quantities are limited.

Tamara’s commentary on the recent hoopla in Massachusetts over some guy’s gun collection: If the pants fit, wet them. Why did the police display a bunch of legal guns and ammunition. So far as I can tell, their only legitimate beefs were some tear gas grenades, and the gent doing some plinking in his attic. They seemed to go into apoplexy at the sight of 17 full ammo cans. Shoot, I’ve bought that much ammo at just one gun show. Based on the number of guns he had, I’d rate him as positively light on ammo!

Reader JDD suggested a very informative FBI report in scanned PDF format titled “Violent Encounters: A Study of Felonious Assaults on Our Nation’s Law Enforcement Officers“.
