Magpul Industries Corp. Introduces the MSS(Modular Stock System) at Shot Show.

Ya’ just gotta’ give it up to someone that can invent a better mousetrap. Rich Fitzpatrick of Magpul Industries Corp. appears to have done just that.

The unit simply snaps right onto the 3rd Generation light-mounting rails. When the operator needs to remove it he/she can snap …

by David Crane No, I’m not talking about guns like that ridiculous "Smartgun" Smith & Wesson has been working on to satisfy the anti-gun fringe extremists. I’m talking about what could very well become a disturbing trend that, unfortunately, could also end up growing very quickly. It seems that gunmakers, in an attempt to cater to, how shall I say …
