Cabela’s Outdoor Fund $50,000 Grant Will Provide Free Project Childsafe Gun Locks to State Agencies

Thanks to a generous $50,000 grant from the Cabela’s Outdoor Fund, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) will provide its Project ChildSafe gun locks and firearm safety education materials to state departments of natural resources to promote secure storage of firearms to students in hunter education classes and other venues.

This is the second grant provided by Cabela’s Outdoor Fund to the Project ChildSafe Foundation, the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that supports NSSF’s firearms safety efforts, most notably those of the Project ChildSafe program. “NSSF is extremely grateful for this Cabela’s Outdoor Fund grant that allows Project ChildSafe to continue providing gun locks and firearm safety education materials to state agencies,” said Bill Brassard, NSSF Senior Director, Communications, who oversees NSSF firearm safety initiatives. “Thanks to Project ChildSafe and other genuine firearm safety programs, fatal firearms accidents have declined to historic low levels.”

Project ChildSafe firearm safety kits include a gun lock and a firearms safety brochure that discusses safe handling and secure storage procedures, and how to keep guns from falling into the wrong hands.

Shipments of the firearm safety kits will begin later this year, with the kits accompanied by supporting materials such as NSSF’s Safe Storage Options infographic, a firearm safety DVD, and NSSF’s new suicide prevention brochure.

NSSF looks forward to working with state agencies again on this important firearm safety initiative designed to help prevent accidents, theft and misuse of firearms. For questions or more information about this program, contact Bill Brassard at bbrassard@nssf.org.

KelTec Announces Recall of Certain Sub-2000 Rifles

KelTec Firearms has announced a voluntary recall of certain Sub-2000 (aka Sub2k) pistol-caliber collapsible rifles due to a potentially dangerous condition. While, thankfully, we escaped our personal firearms being subject to this condition, many others are still out there.

Sub-2000 owners can check to see if their firearm is subject to the recall by entering their serial number(s) on the recall page or by viewing the list of all affected serial numbers.

From KelTec:

ATTENTION
IMPORTANT SUB-2000 SAFETY RECALL NOTICE

We have recently identified an issue with the heat treatment of certain steel tubes received from a third‐party supplier from which the barrels for a limited number of Kel‐Tec SUB‐2000 rifles were manufactured. This could potentially cause the barrel to rupture when a cartridge is fired and could result in serious personal injury. The safety of our customers is our primary concern, so Kel‐Tec has voluntarily initiated this recall because of the possibility of a barrel rupturing.

This recall only affects a portion of SUB‐2000s that were manufactured in 2017.

All costs associated with the recall of your firearm shall be covered by Kel‐Tec.   Continue reading

Mandatory Gun Locks – Coming Soon To A State Near You?

GunLockFirearms safety is every gun owner’s job – from knowing the four rules of gun safety to enacting the Own It/Respect It/Secure It mantra of NSSF’s Project Childsafe. With many states eyeing legislation (no fewer than 15 states have proposed legislation in the past year and another dozen or so with it already on the books) to mimic California’s state gun lock law, a number of manufacturers are offering solutions intended to prevent unauthorized access to firearms. We had a chance to visit with a few of them at SHOT Show 2018.

Traditional Firearm Security

Before we get into the new stuff, let’s cover the way we have been locking up firearms for ages. There are, obviously, the traditional safes (or, more likely, residential security containers), locking cabinets, and handgun lockboxes that prevent access to anyone without a key, combination, or approved biometric ID such as a fingerprint.  While these options are often large and allow storage of multiple weapons, they can be pricey (although a few states subsidize the purchase of a gun safe with tax credits) and it can take extra time to reach and retrieve a weapon in the event of an emergency.   Continue reading

Liberty Suppressors Announces Leonidas Integral Recall

LibertyRecallGeorgia-based Liberty Suppressors yesterday announced a recall on a portion of their Leonidas integral suppressor line:

Liberty Suppressors has noticed a problem with some of our Leonidas integral suppressors. The problem stems from a running change with the Seekins Precision iRMT-R upper receiver units.At some point in the last year, Seekins Precision made a running change to the style of retaining nut used on these uppers and we did not realize it, until today. If you have one of our Leonidas integrals with the barrel nut as shown below, please discontinue use of the upper and call us to get it returned and updated free of charge. Use of this upper in this condition could cause catastrophic failure. Please call us to get your upper updated immediately.

Please see the attached images for clarification of whether your upper is affected or not.
