Video: Mossberg MMR FIRST LOOK

MMR First look

Today we are checking out the Mossberg MMR Tactical rifle w/ Vortex optic. I think this is an awesome AR because it doesn’t force you to go out have spend more money just to go to the range. most people already are looking at vortex for the optic and this just means the cheap red dot market is go to need to up their game to compete if more companies do this for entry level rifles.

Video: Mossberg Shockwave First Look

We picked up a Mossberg Shockwave a few weeks back and after working with this firearm just for the short amount of time I have found that I want this as my new Ranch gun.

The size of the gun plus the fact that my ammo options are plentiful makes this gun great for everything from snakes to mountain lions to the occasional pirate looking for your tractor rum stash.

This is a first look only and I will be publishing a full review a little later on this year after the ranch is set up and we have the range built enough to start full reviews.

What is new in the gun industry? Are we seeing new guns or just new designs to make the gun look new? Atticus puts a call out to the Makers in the industry, the dreamers and the designers to dig deep and invent! Dare to be different. Dare to dream something new. Make.

We spent all last year reviewing the Windham Project.  This was something new that we could get excited about.  One purchase with multiple calibers.  What can you guys dream?  Is this what you are thinking too?

Video: The FULL AUTO Review of the CMMG MK47 AKS13 7.62x39mm SBN Mutant

FULL AUTO REVIEW CMMG MK47

After months of testing, the Gears Crew gives their take on the CMMG MK47 Mutant and why it is such a fun gun to shoot both in Semi and FULL AUTO rate of fire. CMMG didn’t just piece together another 5.56 rifle and turn it into an AR/AK, they designed their own purpose built rifle.

The Economic Beauty of Guns

Image result for usa flag

Guns – They are an integral part of American society, culturally and economically. America is extremely wealthy because of its’ economic freedoms. The people have the ultimate control of the gun market and dictate the price of how those guns are sold. This is the beauty of a free market. The American gun business is so big that it manufactures more firearms than any other nation in the world. It  puts more than $33 billion in the U.S. economy annually and the National Shooting Sports Foundation says the gun industry supports 220,000 jobs within the United States alone. That is more than double General Motors’ 101,000 employed in the U.S. and their 213,000 employed worldwide.

The reason for the gun industry’s success is the demand by the people for it. The citizens of the United States demand more firearms to buy in the market and in turn many manufacturing facilities are created to satisfy the demand in the market, thus employing more workers. This creates jobs that did not exist before, and these jobs put the American citizen back to work again to feed his or her family and establish a life. This process also ensures the prevailing gun culture that so many of us Americans are so proud of.

The gun industry involves not just the sale and manufacturing of firearms, it expands into creating more jobs in sectors that relate to firearms either directly or indirectly. An obvious example, and an extremely important one is ammunition. Think about the ammunition complementing the firearms. Ammo is to the firearms as syrup is to the pancakes. As more people who purchase guns, or shoot guns, they need to buy ammo to be able to shoot their guns again, or to resupply their stock if you are a hoarder or a vendor. This results in ammunition manufacturers having to expand their company and production in new locations to meet the needs of the market. When an ammunition company expands facilities they employ more people which promotes a healthy thriving economy.

Economic Impact of the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Industry in the U.S.

Direct Supplier Induced Total
Jobs (FTE) 132,584 65,180 90,222 287,986
Wages $5,513,898,500 $4,355,521,100 $4,581,758,300 $14,451,177,900
Economic Impact $19,533,701,800 $14,998,408,400 $14,755,836,700 $49,287,946,900

Chart from the National Shooting Sports Foundation

Ammo is not the only example pertaining to guns, other industries that are overlooked include, but not limited to, hunting equipment, holsters, apparel, shooting ranges and more. A quick view of the industries indirectly relating to the gun business are, clothing manufacturers, that produce camouflaged fabrics for the hunting season, or apparel showing off a popular theme in the gun world. There are small mom and pop shops  that produce a variety of holsters for handgun carriers. There are also manufacturing plants that produce hunting equipment of all sorts for all types of wild game, and recreational game. All these jobs are very important to the wealth of the United States and its’ citizens.

The impact on the economy this industry gives is extremely crucial for the United States having good health, and with the economy being good in America, it impacts the world in a positive way as well. Guns keep America economically safe and that is the economic beauty of guns.

 

Also, here is the tax revenue obtained by Federal and State governments.

Taxes Generated in the United States

Tax Impact Business Taxes Excise Taxes
Federal Taxes $3,658,277,000 $676,958,534

Total Taxes $6,205,817,400 $676,958,534
