Gun Safety 7 Rules of Safe Gun Handling

Whether you are using your gun in the safety of your home, at the range, or at any other place, gun safety must be the first concern of every gun owner.

Mishandling or careless use of your firearm can be the reason of serious accidents and be the differential point between life and death. As a gun owner, it is extremely important that you treat your firearm with utmost respect and responsibility at all times and understand its potent power to cause serious injury if used inappropriately.

It is important not to trust any individual who does not understand the operation or safety rules of handling a gun.

Here are some important tips for safe gun handling:

1) Always handle your gun as if it is fully loaded

While handling a firearm, such as guns for sale in Savannah, GA, it is critical that you check for yourself whether the firearm is loaded or not.Never assume that the gun is unloaded and always visually inspect the gun before handling or giving it to someone else.

Try to avoid crossing obstacles such as streams or fences, or jumping a ditch with a loaded firearm.

Shark Tank contestant charged with defrauding breast cancer survivor

Shark Tank contestant and Utah businessman Nate Holzapfel, 42, has been charged with communications fraud for allegedly swindling his cancer survivor girlfriend out of nearly $200,000

Shark Tank contestant and Utah businessman Nate Holzapfel, 42, has been charged with communications fraud for allegedly swindling his cancer survivor girlfriend out of nearly $200,000

A married Shark Tank contestant from has been charged with defrauding a ‘vulnerable’ breast cancer survivor he had met on a dating site out of nearly $200,000, leading the woman to lose her home that was designed to accommodate her disabled son. 

Nathanael ‘Nate’ Holzapfel, 42, an entrepreneur and business consultant from Provo, was arrested on Monday on communications fraud charges. Investigators believe there could be additional victims out there, and they are asking them to come forward. 

Sgt. Cole Christensen, with the Utah County Attorney’s Bureau of Investigations, said his office has been contacted by several women from across the state who may have fallen prey to Holzapfel’s alleged scheme. 

Holzapfel gained national attention when he appeared in May 2013 on ABC’s reality competition Shark Tank and successfully pitched the Mission Belt – an adjustable leather belt with no holes popular among Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints missionaries – to fashion mogul Daymond John.

Christensen alleged that Holzapfel, who is married, would go on dating apps and look for vulnerable women that could be exploited.

‘He’s looking Canik TP9SFX Tungsten 9mm 5.2″ Barrel for sale a particular type of female,’ Christensen said of Holzapfel. 

According to court records obtained by s, in February 2020, Holzapfel began dating a divorced breast cancer survivor, who has been caring for her wheelchair-bound adult son, and who had recently lost her father.

At the start of their relationship, Holzapfel began asking questions about his new girlfriend’s financial situation, and learned that she owned a house worth about $200,000.

‘[Holzapfel] started telling [the woman] that she needed to do something to protect the equity in her home,’ the charging papers state. ‘[He told her that he] had a company called Save My House, LLC, that could protect the equity in her home and save her from paying high capital gains taxes if she needed to sell the home.’

A month later, Holzapfel allegedly took the woman ‘as a surprise’ to a title company, and then allegedly pressured her into signing a deed that transferred the ownership of her house to his company.

According to the victim, she initially refused to sign the document but she was confused and ultimately agreed to sign the deed transfer.

A witnesses at the title office would later tell investigators that it was ‘obvious’ the woman was reluctant to sign but eventually relented.

What Holzapfel’s girlfriend did not know, according to the charging documents, is that the 42-year-old entrepreneur was having financial problems stemming from a lawsuit filed against him in 2018 by legendary talk show host Larry King, and that he had a default judgment entered against him for over $250,000.

King, who died earlier this year, sued Holzapfel for misusing footage from a mock interview he had done with the businessman. 

After the signing the deed transfer, the woman came to Holzapfel and told him she had changed her mind, but the businessman allegedly began pressuring her to sell her home and invest part of the proceeds from the sale in one of his other ventures.

The victim ‘reluctantly’ sold the home, which had been specifically constructed for her disabled son.

According to the charging documents, Holzapfel sold the woman’s home in August 2020 for nearly $208,000, and pocketed more than $159,000, which he then used to pay for his personal expenses. He allegedly spent a portion of the fund to buy guns.

Investigators believe the woman only received about $11,000 from the sale of her home.

Court records also note that over the course of their dating relationship, Holzapfel ‘omitted to tell [the woman] that he was still married.’

When the woman threatened to go to the police, Holzapfel stopped communicating with her and disappeared, according to the documents.

Holzapfel was charged with fraud in August and was arrested on a warrant on Monday. 

He was released from the Utah County Jail less than two hours later after posting $20,000 bond. He is scheduled to make his initial court appearance on November 3. 

Mission Belt, which was co-founded by Holzapfel’s brother in 2012, has released a statement, distancing itself from the former pitchman.

‘Nate Holzapfel has not been associated with Mission Belt for more than seven years and has no dealings with any of its employees, managers or customers,’ the statement read. ‘Nate Holzapfel does not represent Mission Belt in any capacity.’

Gun used to kill Billy the Kid 140 years ago is up for auction

The gun used to kill Wild West outlaw Billy the Kid 140 years ago is going under the hammer for a staggering $3million.   

The American fugitive was gunned down by Sheriff Pat Garrett who tracked him down to a remote hideout in Fort Sumner, New Mexico, on July 14, 1881.  

Now, more than a century later, Garrett’s single action revolver is up for auction and is expected to fetch between $2 million and $3 million, Bonhams auction house in Los Angeles said. 

Billy, aged 21, had been on the run for two months following a violent prison break-out during which he killed two of the sheriff’s deputies.

Billy, also known as William Bonney, who committed at least eight murders, finally met his end after Garrett pulled the trigger of the 7.5ins barrel army revolver.

Heritage Trust Archive

Bonhams have described the gun as ‘the most iconic treasure of early Western history’ in the United States. 

The revolver was passed to Garrett’s widow in the early 20th century before ending up in the hands of US collectors Jim and Theresa Earle in 1983 who amassed Western firearms and other artifacts for some 50 years. 

Jim Earle died in 2019, and his family is now selling the collection, which also includes two shotguns used by Billy. 

A gun he had with him when he was killed, a Winchester 1873, which was supposedly his ‘most trusted’ weapon, is valued at $495,000.

A double barrel shotgun he took from deputy sheriff Bob Olinger while escaping a New Mexico courthouse and used to murder him before chucking it on the ground as it was damaged is tipped to go for up to $300,000.

Garrett’s contract for the 1881 book he wrote about Billy the Kid is expected to fetch between $8,000 and $12,000. 

The modified Springfield rifle that was buried alongside lawman and gunfighter Wild Bill Hickock in South Dakota in August 1876 is expected to fetch up to $200,000 in the auction. 

Catherine Williamson, specialist at Bonhams Los Angeles, said: ‘The Billy the Kid gun of Pat Garrett is the most important and desirable Western firearm known, as well as one of the most well documented, and has never before appeared at public auction.

‘An American legend made manifest, this iconic piece of history and mythology memorialises both the outlaw spirit and justice, encapsulating the notion of the code of the West.

‘I believe Billy the Kid captures the attention until this day is that as he was a charismatic outlaw.

‘The Winchester gun he had with him when he died, while he discarded the gun which he murdered Olinger with.

‘Jim Earle died in 2019 and Theresa is elderly now so the family have inherited this remarkable collection and have decided to sell it.’

Things to Look Out For When Buying Airsoft BB Guns

November 19, 2021   Uncategorized

Considering the increasing popularity of Airsoft games, you might have thought of buying a BB gun to experience the same level of excitement, adrenaline rush, and thrill that you get to experience in the game, haven't you?

Airsoft guns are becoming increasingly popular these days, especially amongst amateur passionate gamers. These guns are used in a number of sports and serve as replicas of actual weapons. They look like real guns, but are actually not. One of the major characteristics that make these guns different from their authentic counterparts is that they fire plastic or sponge-like bullets instead of real bullets.

Well, just to let you know, purchasing high-quality, top-rated airsoft guns is not an easy chore, not even close (to be precise), as you have to take care of a myriad of factors. Although it's hard to find the perfect combo of reliability and affordability while buying airsoft guns, there are certain websites that provide quality airsoft guns for sale with free shipping and 100 percent low price guarantee.

So, if you're an occasional shooter or just thinking of giving airsoft a shot, you don't need to spend a fortune to buy these guns. We're here to make the process easy and hassle-free for you. Below we have mentioned some useful tips which will help you buy quality airsoft guns without breaking the bank.

1. Set your budget

Make sure you have a clear idea of how much you can afford before you start looking for your perfect gun. Your price range should not just based on your bank balance but also on the fact that to what extent you've thought of getting involved with the game.
There's no point spending hundreds and thousands of dollars if you plan on playing the game occasionally. If that the case, consider buying the cheapest gun, so that even if you break it, you don't have much to lose.

2. Determine the purpose of the purchase

When buying airsoft BB guns, it is crucial that you're choosing the one that is meant for your purpose.

The reason being that airsoft guns come in a variety of different forms and traits which make them a good choice for one or another activity. While some guns are built TAURUS TH40C 40SW COMPACT for sale individual training, others are meant for practice and interactive play. Always take this point into consideration while buying BB guns.

Do not just consider the price but also the purpose of buying the gun before going in for the purchase.

3. Choose the model carefully

It is always recommended to buy guns based on your personal preferences. Make sure you're not influenced by others and take the decision on your own (what you personally feel like).

Here's what you need to do prior to choosing a model: Firstly, avoid a plastic gearbox as it will hardly fire 10 shots (max) and will break afterwards, thus leaving you in vain. Always prefer the models with a metal gearbox and a plastic body. Secondly, check for upgrade possibilities.
The reason being that upgrading your existing gun to a better version may cost you less than buying a brand new gun.

Thirdly, always remember, a gun with a plastic body is not a bad option to consider, unless and until the plastic used in the gun is of poor quality.

Yes, it's true that a gun with a full-metal body is more durable, has better grip, and also feels better in your hands, but it also costs more. If you can afford it, go for it, otherwise choose the high-quality plastic coated option. Last but not the least, accessibility to spare parts.
Before choosing any particular model, it's best to check spare parts' availability on the market.

My personal opinion: The top three airsoft guns for sale, which promise affordability and excellent quality, include M82 Full-Auto AEG – Replica SG 552 (Reasonably prices), Black Replica Walther P99 (Pistol at a bargain), and ASG Tac-6 CO2 Semi-Auto Airsoft (Best option for low budget shooters).

Happy shooting!

Dark HunTOR, ‘was composed of a series of separate but complementary actions in Australia, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States,’ the Hague-based Europol said.

In the United States alone, police arrested 65 people, while 47 were held in Germany, 24 Buy Spike’s Tactical Pineapple Grenade Color Filled AR15 Stripped Lower Receiver in USA Britain, and four each in Italy and the Netherlands, among others.

A number of those arrested ‘were considered high-value targets’ by Europol.

Law agents also confiscated 26.7 million euros (£22.45million) in cash and virtual currencies, as well as 45 guns and 516lbs of drugs, including 25,000 ecstasy pills.

Italian police also shut down the ‘DeepSea’ and ‘Berlusconi’ marketplaces, ‘which together boasted over 100,000 announcements of illegal products’, said Europol, which coordinated the operation together with its twin judicial agency Eurojust.

German police in January closed down the ‘DarkMarket’ online marketplace, used by its alleged operator, an Australian, to facilitate the sale of drugs, stolen credit card data and malware.

Europol said the arrest of the alleged operator, caught near the German-Danish border at the time, and the seizure of the criminal infrastructure provided ‘investigators across the world with a trove of evidence’.

German prosecutors at the time said DarkMarket came to light in the course of a major investigation against the web-hosting service Cyberbunker, located in a former NATO bunker in southwest Germany.

Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre EC3 has since been compiling intelligence packages to identify the key targets, the continent’s policing agency said.

The secret ‘darknet’ includes websites that can be assessed only with specific software or authorisations, ensuring anonymity for users.

They have faced increased pressure from international law enforcement in recent months.

‘The point of operations such as this is to put criminals operating on the dark web on notice (that) the law enforcement community has the means and global partnerships to unmask them and hold them accountable for their illegal activities,’ Europol deputy director of operations Jean-Philippe Lecouffe said.

Rolf van Wegberg, cybercrime investigator at the TU Delft university said the operation signalled a break in the trend of recent police actions against suspected online criminals.

‘This kind of operations in the past looked at arresting the controllers of these marketplaces, we now see police services targeting the top sellers,’ he told investigative journalists at the Dutch KRO-NCRV public broadcaster.

A press conference about the operation has been set for 10am local time (2pm GMT) in Washington with the Department of Justice.

Shark Tank contestant charged with defrauding breast cancer survivor

November 14, 2021   Uncategorized

Shark Tank contestant and Utah businessman Nate Holzapfel, 42, has been charged with communications fraud for allegedly swindling his cancer survivor girlfriend out of nearly $200,000

Shark Tank contestant and Utah businessman Nate Holzapfel, 42, has been charged with communications fraud for allegedly swindling his cancer survivor girlfriend out of nearly $200,000

A married Shark Tank contestant from has been charged with defrauding a ‘vulnerable’ breast cancer survivor he had met on a dating site out of nearly $200,000, leading the woman to lose her home that was designed to accommodate her disabled son. 

Nathanael ‘Nate’ Holzapfel, 42, an entrepreneur and business consultant from Provo, was arrested on Monday on communications fraud charges. Investigators believe there could be additional victims out there, and they are asking them to come forward. 

Sgt. Cole Christensen, with the Utah County Attorney’s Bureau of Investigations, said his office has been contacted by several women from across the state who may have fallen prey to Holzapfel’s alleged scheme. 

Holzapfel gained national attention when he appeared in May 2013 on ABC’s reality competition Shark Tank and successfully pitched the Mission Belt – an adjustable leather belt with no holes popular among Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints missionaries – to fashion mogul Daymond John.

Christensen alleged that Holzapfel, who is married, would go on dating apps and look for vulnerable women that could be exploited.

‘He’s looking SIG Sauer MPX Copperhead 4.5 9mm Pistol for sale a particular type of female,’ Christensen said of Holzapfel. 

According to court records obtained by s, in February 2020, Holzapfel began dating a divorced breast cancer survivor, who has been caring for her wheelchair-bound adult son, and who had recently lost her father.

At the start of their relationship, Holzapfel began asking questions about his new girlfriend’s financial situation, and learned that she owned a house worth about $200,000.

‘[Holzapfel] started telling [the woman] that she needed to do something to protect the equity in her home,’ the charging papers state. ‘[He told her that he] had a company called Save My House, LLC, that could protect the equity in her home and save her from paying high capital gains taxes if she needed to sell the home.’

A month later, Holzapfel allegedly took the woman ‘as a surprise’ to a title company, and then allegedly pressured her into signing a deed that transferred the ownership of her house to his company.

According to the victim, she initially refused to sign the document but she was confused and ultimately agreed to sign the deed transfer.

A witnesses at the title office would later tell investigators that it was ‘obvious’ the woman was reluctant to sign but eventually relented.

What Holzapfel’s girlfriend did not know, according to the charging documents, is that the 42-year-old entrepreneur was having financial problems stemming from a lawsuit filed against him in 2018 by legendary talk show host Larry King, and that he had a default judgment entered against him for over $250,000.

King, who died earlier this year, sued Holzapfel for misusing footage from a mock interview he had done with the businessman. 

After the signing the deed transfer, the woman came to Holzapfel and told him she had changed her mind, but the businessman allegedly began pressuring her to sell her home and invest part of the proceeds from the sale in one of his other ventures.

The victim ‘reluctantly’ sold the home, which had been specifically constructed for her disabled son.

According to the charging documents, Holzapfel sold the woman’s home in August 2020 for nearly $208,000, and pocketed more than $159,000, which he then used to pay for his personal expenses. He allegedly spent a portion of the fund to buy guns.

Investigators believe the woman only received about $11,000 from the sale of her home.

Court records also note that over the course of their dating relationship, Holzapfel ‘omitted to tell [the woman] that he was still married.’

When the woman threatened to go to the police, Holzapfel stopped communicating with her and disappeared, according to the documents.

Holzapfel was charged with fraud in August and was arrested on a warrant on Monday. 

He was released from the Utah County Jail less than two hours later after posting $20,000 bond. He is scheduled to make his initial court appearance on November 3. 

Mission Belt, which was co-founded by Holzapfel’s brother in 2012, has released a statement, distancing itself from the former pitchman.

‘Nate Holzapfel has not been associated with Mission Belt for more than seven years and has no dealings with any of its employees, managers or customers,’ the statement read. ‘Nate Holzapfel does not represent Mission Belt in any capacity.’

November 13, 2021   Uncategorized

Police in Ecuador have finally regained full control over a prison where 118 inmates were killed – six of them decapitated – in the deadliest jail riot that the country has ever seen, the government has said. 

Nine hundred heavily armed police officers were required to subdue rioting gang members at Litroal prison, in the port city of Guayaquil, after three days of violence as soldiers and armoured vehicles stood guard outside.

The riot broke out on Tuesday morning when members of the Los Choneros, Los Tiguerones and Los Lobos gangs attacked one-another using grenades, guns, knives, and any other weapon they could lay their hands on.

Partial order was restored Tuesday evening, but violence erupted again on Wednesday, continued overnight into Thursday, and was only stopped last night.

Police were forced to re-take the building wing-by-wing, using angle grinders to cut through barricaded doors into prison blocks were the floors were littered with dozens of bodies and awash with blood.

As well as the 118 dead, another 86 were wounded – six of them critically.The government has blamed the influence of notorious Mexican drug cartels – El Chapo’s notorious Sinaloa Cartel and their biggest rivals the Jalisco New Generation Cartel – for instigating the violence after infiltrating local outfits.

Police regained control over Ecuador's Litoral prison late Thursday after 900 riot officers were sent in to recapture the jail after three days of rioting that left 118 people dead

Guayaquil, which is located on Ecuador’s west coast with easy access to the Pacific Ocean, is well-known as a cocaine smuggling hub.  

Police commander General Tannya Varela told reporters late Thursday that inmates ‘no longer have control of the cell blocks,’ adding that the prisoners were now back in their cells and ‘everything is calm.’ 

On Wednesday at least two officers were injured when rioting inmates, armed with guns, attacked police sent in to retake control of the facility.

Soldiers and tanks were also stationed outside the jail, where hundreds of worried family members have gathered, desperate for news from the men locked up inside.

‘It is a very painful thing….They say people have had their heads taken off,’ said Juana Pinto, who was seeking news about her inmate son.

Ermes Duarte, 71, who came from the nearby rural town of Salitre, said his son ‘was only 15 days away from being released.I came because I saw a video, sent to me by cell phone, where I recognized his head.’

Ecuador’s prison system has 65 facilities designed for about 30,000 inmates but actually houses 39,000, watched over by 1,500 guards – a shortfall of about 3,000, according to experts.

Corruption is rife and inmates are able to acquire arms and ammunition.

On February 23, simultaneous riots at four jails including Guayaquil left 79 inmates dead, several of them also beheaded.

Last week police confiscated two pistols, a revolver, some 500 rounds of ammunition, a hand grenade, several knives, two sticks of dynamite and homemade explosives at one of the city’s prisons.

Two weeks ago, Guayaquil’s Prison Number 4 was attacked by drones, part of ‘a war between international cartels,’ prison authorities said.There were no casualties in that attack. 

The country’s human rights ombudsman said there were 103 prison killings in 2020.

Criminal groups ‘have taken over the country’s prisons and are trying to send a message to the state that they are stronger than the rule of law,’ said Itania Villarreal, a former director of the agency in charge of prisoner rehabilitation.

‘The prison system has collapsed,’ she said.

Security expert Freddy Rivera of the Latin American Faculty of Social Sciences in Quito said many prisoners had ties not only to Mexican cartels, but to gangs in neighboring Colombia.

Ecuador’s prisons have become ‘criminal central command centers’ from which illicit activities are planned and ordered, he told AFP, adding that the country’s prison massacres in recent years have exceeded those of Brazil and Venezuela.

Located between Colombia and Peru, the world’s leading cocaine producers, Ecuador is a key transit for drug shipments to the United States and Europe.

Guayaquil is Ecuador’s most populous city and its main port.
