NBC NEWS Jan 14th, 2021, WASHINGTON – All through downtown Washington, the primary sound for several blocks was the beeping of forklifts unloading more fencing.There were no cars or scooters and seemingly no tourists Wednesday, just the occasional jogger and multiple construction crews at work. The U.S. Capitol that proved such a soft target last week was visible only through lines of tall, black fence. Two blocks from the White House, a group of uniformed National Guard troops emerged from a tour bus and headed into a hotel as a state of lockdown descended on Washington that will last through the Jan. 20 inauguration. “Clearly we are in uncharted waters,” said Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser. Last week’s “violent insurrection” at the Capitol by supporters of outgoing President Donald Trump has “impacted the way we are approaching working with our federal partners in planning for the 59th inauguration,” Bowser said Wednesday. The FBI has warned that armed protests by violent Trump supporters were being planned in all 50 state capitals as well as in Washington for the days leading up to the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden. NBC NEWS: Gun sales to first-time buyers skyrocket amid fears of 'bloody' election and out of control rioters in the streets. “Whichever way this election goes, it could get really scary, and it could get bloody,” said a 61-year-old woman who started taking shooting classes this summer. “I want to be armed and dangerous.” Andreyah Garland, a 44-year-old single mother of three daughters, bought a shotgun in May for protection in the quaint middle-class town of Fishkill, New York.
GET GUN TRAINING, GET CONCEALED WEAPON PERMIT: Andreyah Garland joined a new and fast-growing local gun club to learn how to shoot. She has since applied for a pistol permit and constantly hunts for increasingly scarce ammunition — making three trips weekly to a local Walmart. “They’re always out,” she said. Like legions of other first-time buyers who are contributing to record sales for the U.S. gun industry this year, Garland’s decision to take up arms is driven in part by disturbing news about the coronavirus pandemic and mobs of rioters in the streets looting, burning stores, and the killing of police officers.

GUN SALES SKYROCKET: One of my favorites Smith & Wesson M&P .40 caliber 10 round capacity. Over 4.3 Million Guns Sold in Last 60 days of 2020. Over the top numbers of 1,797,910 Guns Sold in April 2020 and 2,583,238 Guns Sold in March 2020. foxnews Over Gun sales in April spiked by more than 70 percent from the previous year, with the purchase of more than 1.7 million firearms as concerns related to the novel coronavirus continued, recently released statistics show. An estimated 1,797,910 guns were sold in April 2020 – a 71.3 percent increase from April 2019.

BULLET PLACEMENT: For too long, women were told that if they wanted to carry a sidearm they needed a “ladies’ gun,” usually a tiny .22 or .25 automatic with so little power it might or might not stop a charging gerbil. Then the trend moved toward the small .38 Special revolver. The snub nose .38 became a classic “ladies’ gun” for modem times. Smith & Wesson’s first “Lady Smith” since the 19th century became a roaring success in the 20th century based on the Chief Special, 2-inch barrel, five-shot, J-frame revolver. Professionals cannot stress too heavily that the primary determinant of stopping power is BULLET PLACEMENT. A cool, deliberate marksman with a little .380 Walther PPK will beat a panicky, inaccurate man with a .357 Magnum or $1200 customized .45 auto every time. Whatever firearm and caliber you select, you must practice firing hundreds of rounds in realistic defensive scenarios until you can confidently make disabling hits on your target. Tactics and marksmanship win gunfights – not having the latest ‘wonder bullet’ in your gun.BULLET PLACEMENT: Shoot Em Up Day at High Noon Guns Bee Ridge Rd Sarasota with a Walther PPK/S .380 and Beretta .25 Caliber Pocket Gun, Practice, Practice, Practice, Lots of Bad Guys Out There. Often imitated but never duplicated. The elegant lines of the legendary WALTHER PPK/S have caught the imagination of the entire world for over 75 years. Developed in 1931, the WALTHER PPK continues to thrill the shooting public, and the legend lives on. The PPK/S with a longer frame for one additional cartridge, 7+1, and the PPK/S are now produced in the USA under license by Smith & Wesson.
BABY BERETTA: The Beretta 950 Jetfire is a great looking little pocket pistol. The tip-up barrel feature is great. You can load a round in the chamber or remove the round that is in the chamber without having to cycle the slide. Just cock the hammer and fire away. While the .25ACP cartridge is not the most powerful round, 9 rounds of .25ACP properly placed will certainly get the job done. With a concealed weapon permit you can carry this powerful little pistol while wearing just about any clothing, even a swim suit, great for Florida undercover work.
MY CHOICE FOR CONCEALED POCKET WEAPON OF THE WEEK IS THE SMITH & WESSON MODEL 642 AIRWEIGHT A .38 SPECIAL DELIGHT FOR POCKET OR PURSE. SMITH AND WESSON MODEL 642 AIRWEIGHT .38 REVOLVER. A revolver is a superior weapon for close contact. Shoved into the ribs of a bad guy, the little J-frame conveys its message of peace, love and understanding with surprising eloquence.
The Smith & Wesson Model 642 AIRWEIGHT is easily the most recommended variant of the J-frame line if the Internet counts for anything in gun selection. Call me old school but any confrontation that you get into were you feel that your life is going to be in danger is probably going to occur within 3 feet of your space i.e. next to your drivers side window or right in front of your face. I want a concealable weapon that can easily be produced, needs no on/off safety or slide action to engage, just pull and shoot and the weapon needs to be sturdy enough to pound nails into the coffin of your adversary after you dispose of him, it is just that simple.
I have two .38 caliber snub nose detective special revolvers, one is a Taurus all steel .38 special 5 shot revolver with exposed hammer and one is a Smith & Wesson Airweight snub nosed .38 special 5 shot revolver with a concealed hammer. S&W 642 Airweight is perfect for pocket or purse with hollow point ammo, up close and personal. The best selling firearm offered by Smith & Wesson was the Model 642, the Airweight (about 20 ounces loaded) version of the 640. It is often called hammerless which is a misnomer of sorts because it actually does have a hammer its just completely enclosed within the frame making the revolver double action only (DAO). It is a smooth, snag-free design which makes it ideal for pocket carry. Jim Supica, author of The Standard Catalog of Smith & Wesson, said of the 642 that it was possibly the finest pocket revolver ever made. AVERAGE COST $470.00 - PROTECTION VALUE....PRICELESS.
