We know that the legal status of pistol braces and related systems is under some nonsensical scrutiny by the ATF right now. But, at time of publishing, no policy letters have been published or legislation passed altering the classification of braced firearms. Until that happens, they are legal, and we will continue to cover them as such.
The Ruger 10/22 is a decades-old, highly proven design that belongs in the safe of every red-blooded American. The 22LR cartridge has been used to take a wide variety of games and provides a reliable, lightweight, sometimes inexpensive plinking round that can be carried by the hundreds. The 10/22 is supported by an immense amount of aftermarket part manufacturers, and we were lucky enough to get our hands on SB Tactical’s new SB22 fixed kit for review.
First, let’s beat the dead horse of how great the 22LR is as a survivalist cartridge. Carrying a brick of 22LR takes up little space and provides the shooter with several hundred rounds of ammunition for squirrels and such. We can all agree, however, that 22LR wouldn’t be our first, or even fifth, the choice for a defensive cartridge. But for small and possibly even medium games, it’s a decent choice. In the not-so-distant past, when ammo flowed freely, the venerable rimfire cartridge was plentiful and the shooter had plenty of options to tailor the equipment to the mission. The shooter could carry a mixed bag of hollow points, heavy subsonic, shotshells, and even match ammo that’d give them different capabilities when it came to hunting and, in a pinch, defense. The 10/22 design is generally very reliable in feeding and functioning with these different loads, so in the lucky instance you come across a less-common load, you can feel confident it’ll run in your gun.

Rápido y Furioso Con la complicidad del gobierno de Calderón
No sólo fue Rápido y Furioso. A partir de 2004 agencias de Estados Unidos realizaron otros siete operativos de “trasiego controlado” de miles de armas hacia México. La mayoría terminó en manos de cárteles de la droga y con ellas se cometieron múltiples homicidios. En al menos cuatro de estos operativos el gobierno mexicano no sólo fue informado, sino que cooperó... Y lo hizo “al más alto nivel”, como lo revela una investigación de Fabián Medina –jefe de la oficina del canciller Marcelo Ebrard–, y cuyas partes fundamentales Proceso reproduce.
