In the New Year there will be a bevy of new laws facing Illinois Citizens. One new law that Gun Owners should pay close attention to is PA 101-0027, the Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act. This new law allows Illinois citizens over twenty-one the ability to purchase and consume cannabis recreationally. Illinois citizens have had the ability to purchase and consume cannabis for medical reasons for five years. There is a difference between the purchase and use of Medical Cannabis and Recreational Cannabis as it relates to your lawful rights to own and possess a firearm in Illinois.

A common debate in the firearms industry is about whether to use Weapon Mounted Lights/lasers. Most people often don’t consider that their personal firearms they carry or have for defense may very well be used at night or in a low light situation. A Weapon Mounted Light and/or laser is defiantly not needed for every single gun, but in some situations, having the advantage of a Weapon Mounted Light puts you on top. In this article I will mention many of the pro’s as well as cons of the use of a WML (weapon mounted light).
Before we identify any of the pros and cons of a WML, we have to ask ourselves what particular firearm we are talking about. If you have a gun that you carry every day, you might not even want to make it...

When it comes to determining what bullet weight to use do you know the difference? This factor alone can have an impact on the accuracy of your firearm. So, it is important to match up the correct ammo for your specific firearm and barrel. The twist of your barrel will help stabilize the projectile in flight. The weight, shape, velocity of the bullet and length of the barrel will determine the accuracy of your shot. If we are talking about a standard AR-15 with a 16-inch barrel, it will most likely have a 1-in-8 twist rate. This is generally a good twist for versatility in that it will stabilize a 55gr bullet up to 80gr bullet. The military for example uses a 1-in-7 twist rate, this twist rate is unique in that it will stabilize tracer r...
