Steve’s short break starts tomorrow

Hi ladies and gentlemen. You probably noticed the flurry of blog posts over the past few days – I have been trying to get most of my backlog published before my break from writing. I will resume writing on 11 November (Next month).

Don’t worry, the blog will be updated everyday, Monday to Friday, with a guest blog post each day. Readers from around the world have contributed articles covering a wide range of topics and I am very excited to present them on the blog, giving you all a break from my poor spelling and bad grammar πŸ˜‰ So check back daily.

I will not be gone anywhere. This break is just so that I can get through my work workload without feeling guilty about not posting enough articles.

When new firearms are launched or there is breaking news, I will take a break from the break and cover it on the blog. I may also publish one or two articles I have been working on. I have you covered for gun news!

I will still be here can be contacted via. email.

Please continue to email me interesting firearm related news and information. While I may not be able to publish it on the blog, I want to keep my finger on the pulse of the industry … and I just plain enjoy reader about gun stuff πŸ™‚

Kind regards,


PS. If you have not been visiting the website daily, and are not subscribed, you have probably missed blog posts that dropped off the homepage. Scroll down to the bottom of the homepage and click the “Next” link. It will take you to the previous posts that are not on the homepage.

    This is of related legal interest for those in the US.

    A Montana mother is attempting to sue the manufacturers of Louisville Slugger baseball bats after her 18 year old son was killed during a game. He was struck in the head by a successfully batted baseball. The baseball bat which was used to hit the ball was of the metal variety. The technological superiority of metal bats vs. wood is hotly debated. Her claim is that the manufacturer has produced an unreasonably dangerous bat and should be held liable for her son’s death.

    I am not a ball player but I assume the goal of baseball bat technology is to facilitate hitting a baseball as reliably and as hard as possible. It would seem that the bat in question was functioning well in accordance with its design.

    I will be interested to see if the legal precedent of successful suits against gun manufacturers for gun deaths (in which their product was functioning properly and used correctly) is invoked during this suit. I am also interested to see if the result of this case will be invoked in future lawsuits against gun manufacturers for producing efficient and functional products.

    In related news, baseball bats in California may now have no more than two of the following three features: made of metal, rubber grip, black in color.

    i finally got to post that m1911a1 animation at “women & guns”, i also took the liberty of posting your blog address there so perhaps some of the ladies will come and give you a look. they’re a good bunch of gals and i’ve learned a lot from them, like my advice to lisa marie to “go shopping” for her gun back a while. the ladies taught me that. good luck with the break and we’ll look forward to your return.

    • β€œgunner”, thanks! It is great when people post links because others when would never have come across The Firearm Blog before get to find it πŸ™‚
