Sen. Chris Murphy Wants ‘No Screening’ for Immigrants, More Gun Control

Give Me Liberty

H/T Breitbarts Big Government.

Little Pissy Murphy wants Americans unarmed do his Muslim buddies could take over America.

I want more screening and no gun control.

During a January 30 appearance on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) criticized President Trump’s immigration suspension and said he would rather see a move toward “no screening” and the passage of more gun control.

Murphy claimed that the U.S. has ISIS “on its heels,” and the suspension of immigration from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Yemen, and Somalia will “[hand ISIS] a path to rebirth.”

Random House executive editor Jon Meacham was also on the program and asked Murphy, “Do you see any merit in the President’s action? What do you believe should be the security screening? What should be the vetting for immigrants coming in?”

Murphy responded by saying, “The four countries that were of origin for the 9/11 attackers, none…

The Reloading Balancing Act

Sierra Bullets

Written by Sierra Bullets Ballistic Technician Philip Mahin

phil-cooking2A lot of calls that come into the 800 room are made by shooters that are of a retiring age. That isn’t meant to be an insult but just something I’ve picked up on. Most of the time the shooter used to reload back when they were kids and stopped in order to raise a family, pursue a career, or both. Maybe their father or grandfather taught them back in the day and they are looking for an answer to the new whatchamacallit they found on the internet. The point is they are coming back to it because it was fun.

As a father of three, a husband, a brother, a son and son-in-law, and a friend and neighbor, I get pulled in a lot of directions. In all honesty, reloading and shooting has become a stress relief for me even though…

What Did You Prep This Week (Month)?

The Armed Christian

For those who believe, the most important preparation of all is our relationship with God. Mine has suffered significantly over the last few months. I have not made the time for prayer or for studying God’s word. It seems a lost suitcase turned out to be a real blessing (link). While not perfect, I have done much better spending time everyday in prayer and studying God’s word everyday. Regardless of how my other preps go this is what is most important and what I am most excited about.

Most of my preps over the last month or so have revolved around guns and hunting stuff. I bought two more .50 Caliber ammo cans for long term ammo storage. I filled, labeled and put them in my storage area.

As I thought she might, Wonderful Wife “surprised” me with a new rifle for Christmas; a Mossberg 464 SPX.

Problems and Solutions

We’ve been cutting a lot of wood on the back acreage.  I bought a 1991 Arctic Cat Lynx 300 last fall and it’s the best $700 I’ve spent on homestead equipment.  I was a Polaris man growing up.  This Arctic Cat has expanded my horizons.

We’ve had an easy winter.  Lots of rain and not much snow.  That makes it hard on the old snowmobile, especially in the sink holes.  We ran into a slight problem yesterday.

20 minutes with the Echo Timberwolf 590  chainsaw and a little grunt work and we made ourselves a solution.

She’s saying, “I’m gonna get mud splattered, I’m gonna get mud splattered!” I told her that if mama had a fit, she could blame me. 😉

President Trump Readies Pen to Reverse Anti-gun Executive Orders

The WH removed my petition for Constitutional Carry & Stand Your Ground, from the petition listing. I highly doubt if Trump will do very much beyond a stroke job.

Freedom Is Just Another Word...

In one of the first pro-gun actions of his administration, President Donald Trump is expected to shortly move to revoke Barack Obama’s illegal actions to effectively outlaw gun collecting.

Obama’s anti-gun “executive action” was announced on January 6, 2016 — in the wake of Obama’s unsuccessful attempt to scapegoat law-abiding gun owners for the actions of a Muslim terrorist in San Bernardino.

Obama’s action was implemented as a “clarification” because he knew that his lawless moves could never pass muster under the rule-making procedures of the Administrative Procedures Act.

Under Obama’s now-moribund “clarification,” a gun owner could have been imprisoned for up to five years and fined $250,000 for “only one or two [firearms] transactions,” according to a White House fact sheet.

Note that, under Clinton, tens of thousands of licensees lost their licenses because they didn’t have “brick-or-mortar” stores.  Now, in a Clinton/Obama Mutt-and-Jeff routine, Obama proposed to imprison…

Simulated Native American Artifact Excavation Activity

Nature Into Action

If you ask kids today how we know what we know about a subject they often will answer “google” or the “internet”. Try it.

To get students to think of themselves as seekers of knowledge, I’m always trying to create lessons that allow them to comprehend information through their own discoveries. This makes lessons more personal, meaningful and memorable.

To help elementary age students learn about the Lenape or Delaware Native Americans I create a simulated artifact excavation activity. I’ll bury animal bones (mostly deer and bear), pottery shards, arrowheads, shells and stones. The students become archaeologists making exciting discoveries as they excavate, clean, record and organize findings.

When ready we circle around the findings and one at a time discuss what we think an item is, what it was used for and what the modern equivalent might be.

3 Gun Laws President Trump Could Change Within the Next Month

It’s all bullshit. A farce. Only Constitutional Carry, will do.

Give Me Liberty

H/T The Motley Fool.

My Indiana driver’s license is valid nation wide and my Indiana License To Carry A handgun should be valid nationwide.

Sound suppressors aka Silencers need to be easier to purchase so they can help preserve people’s hearing.

Silencers for all and universal concealed carry are just two of the changes the new president could propose.

The NRA spent more than $36 million on advertising supporting its favored candidates during the 2016 elections — an all-time record. That support paid off big time when pro-gun Donald Trump won the top of his ticket and was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States on Friday. With Trump, along with firm Republican majorities in both the House and Senate, we could begin seeing loosened gun control laws in relatively short order.

What follows are just a few of the changes President Trump might propose.

USA-(Ammoland.com)- Anti gun extremist, Rep. Katherine Rogers, (D, Merrimack, 28) is pushing HB 201,  bill that will put you in jail for up to a year for selling a gun to a friend or neighbor.

That’s right, under the provisions of HB 201 you can’t even dispose of your private personal property without going to a licensed firearms dealer.

But it gets even worse, Rep. Rogers also wants local law enforcement to report violations to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. She wants to federalize local law enforcement.

HB 201 seeks to redefine a private transaction between 2 friends as a so called “commercial sale”. Don’t be confused by this rhetoric. Licensed dealers engage in “commercial sales.”

Concealed Carry Factors: Quantifying the Choice of a Concealed Carry Handgun

Gun Culture 2.0

I am working hard these days on a paper I will be presenting at a symposium on “The Symbolic and Material Construction of Guns” at Amherst College this March. The title of the paper is: “‘The First Rule of Gunfighting is Have a Gun‘: Technologies of Concealed Carry in Gun Culture 2.0.”

The first part of the title is a quote from gun writer Mark Moritz. I was toying with the idea of titling the paper “Carry Your Damn Gun,” quoting gun trainer Tom Givens of Rangemaster. But since Givens says he is just paraphrasing Moritz, I thought I would acknowledge him, too.

Forming Cases for the 6.5x53mmR Dutch (or Romanian) Mannlicher cartridge, used in the M1895 Dutch rifle

The Alternate Reality

I read up on the process and started. I found most of the pitfalls. Please read the entire article prior to beginning the process. I wrote this more or less as a log of my attempts. It worked well on the first try, more or less. I did find some easier or less damaging techniques and added them later.

All my sources and information indicates the Dutch cartridge is the same shape, size and pressure specifications as the 6.5×54 (rimless) Mannlicher-Schoenauer cartridge, save the rim. Since no one commonly makes dies for the Dutch cartridge (actually, RCBS does, but they run over $100 a set; more for ‘forming’ dies), I bought a set of 6.5x54MS dies (made by Lee and cost less).

Start with .303 British cases, preferably new and unfired. This actually simplifies the process, since no one I could find makes a dedicated 6.5x53mmR shell head holder. To…

“He who marvels at the beauty of the world in summer will find equal cause for wonder and admiration in winter”. – John Burroughs

Growing up in the suburbs outside New York City it felt more like a dream to ever get to experience wilderness, as if it was something from a time lost and gone away.   The truth that I’ve discovered is despite land fragmentation and encroachment from the need for our homes and businesses there is still much out there to “get lost” in. One just needs to take the time to research access points, to pour over the maps and read the topography of the landscape, set some goals and make a plan…even in the coldest depth of winter!

screen-shot-2017-01-17-at-7-54-18-pmHaving worked through the decision to be armed and having accepted the responsibility for the protection of self and loved ones, the next step is the choice of an appropriate cartridge and handgun. Let’s presume, gentle readers, you’ve decided on a handgun/cartridge combination. Now comes a surprisingly difficult matter: choosing how to carry the handgun.

Virtually all long-time gun owners that actually carry their handguns have a box–or boxes–full of holsters, magazine pouches, and related gadgets that have been tried and put aside for something new, something more comfortable, lighter, or simply better. It’s part of the process, and part of the fun, and it’s absolutely necessary. Regardless of the good intentions and advice of others, it’s difficult to know what will work for you until you’ve had the chance to try it.

The Military and Concealed Carry: What You Should Know

that weird gun guy

     The last decade or so has been a bonanza for Second Amendment rights for most citizens in this country. Except for just a few states, most law abiding citizens who are concealed carry license holders can legally carry a concealed weapon in most states. If you remember to just 10-15 years ago it was a significantly smaller number of people and states that could do so. If we look at present day, some states do not even require a permit for residents to carry concealed within its borders. Because of this freedom, we have seen a boon in the firearms industry to respond to the consumer.

     Again, if you look back as recently as the early 2000’s, compact and sub compact pistols were not very common and the few that did exist were marketed mostly as police backup guns, because they were some of the only ones who could and…

The Anti-Safety Media Continues To Push This Lie About Silencers

H/T Bearing Arms.

The whole gun control movement is based on lies and distortions so why wouldn’t they lie about sound suppressors.

Gun control supporters are upset that the Hearing Protection Act, one of those “common sense” gun laws they claim to support, has a decent chance of passing into law.

…with Republicans in charge of the House and Senate and the elder Trump moving into the White House, gun rights advocates are excited about its prospects this year.

They hope to position the bill the same way this time — not as a Second Amendment issue, but as a public-health effort to safeguard the eardrums of the nation’s 55 million gun owners. They even named it the Hearing Protection Act. It would end treating silencers as the same category as machine guns and grenades, thus eliminating a $200 tax and a nine-month approval process.

As the Texas Ranger suggested in Article 11, with ammunition, bigger is sometimes better.  Consider the Moro uprising of 1899-1913.  The Moros, Islamic revolutionaries in the Phillipines, fought a protracted jungle war with the US Army.  This was America’s first real war against an Islamic enemy (save the Barbary Pirates in Jefferson’s time) and its first jungle war. The Moros were small in stature, being only a bit over five feet tall on average, but were fierce and fearless, willing to sacrifice themselves in mass ambush attacks.  Many would drug themselves prior to combat, lowering their resistance to pain and increasing their homicidal rage.

American Rifleman: January, 2017

The AR7 that I owned was the older one prior to Henry purchasing the company/rights. It was a dismal gun, I am sorry to say, because I bought it with high hopes. I kept it until after the flood of 2012, because I foolishly thought that maybe, someone would come up with a magic wand and remedy the collection of ills, but the AR7 was sour from day one to day last.

I just finished reading this month’s American Rifleman, and I must say that my favorite article was the regular column, “I Have This Old Gun…” by Garry James.  This article was about the Allen “Dragoon” Pepperbox, and I have been fascinated with pepperboxes ever since the first time I played Monopoly.

I had heard that all barrels fired at once, which I thought was quite awesome and terrifying all at the same time, but this article mentions that this was not always the case, and was often a misfire called a “chainfire.”

I did also enjoy the article titled, “Survivor:  The Unlikely resilience of the AR-7” by Jeremiah Knupp.   I had often wondered if these things really floated (the Marlin Papoose as well), but never had the money nor the courage to find out for myself.

Keefe provides some interesting quotes from the English gun writer Hugh B.C. Pollard about the pocket pistol, including:

The advantages of the pocket automatic are — rapidity of fire, and the flatness and compactness in the pocket.

And

The average Englishman has little idea how widespread is the habit of carrying a pocket pistol; it is certainly unusual in England, but almost customary in the U.S.A. and Continental countries.

I believe there is an error, as that is a clockwise cylinder rotation by reading the indents on the cylinder, which means that it will shoot like a Colt, and not like any other competitors’ revolver offerings.
Of the numerous questions I have, the front sight, I am not certain if the allen screw design would be desired only due to, reliability because of issues that could arise with possible loosening of the allen screws. Then, finish, being a stainless (heavier than blue steel), and a matte black would be desirable and regulation in many instances. The purchase price is hefty to want to take an aerosol spray paint can to it. A blue steel version would in my opinion, be nicer. Then barrel length offerings, where a three inch or at least a 2.5 inch barrel would be nicer with +P ammunition firing through it.
The bent trigger guard bow, probably is made to accommodate the weapon to standard D-frame holsters, but a more refined trigger guard should have been opted for by the designers at Colt. A concern is that of whether the Colt Custom Shop will offer action honing to make it buttery smooth, and bring the trigger weight down to between 4.5# to 5.0# DA pull for street carry, or if litigation and legal department will forbid that. Cylinder and forcing cone throating, plus a competition size cylinder hand for fabulous timing. Previous Colt revolvers were finicky and not as rugged as S&W.
As I know, many shooters opt for rubber grips, and they are nice, I prefer standard wood grips without the varnish slippery feel, so oil finish low luster, with a Tyler T-grip, would be for myself, a more prudent selection. No pilgrim lock on the revolver, makes the Colt 2017 Cobra, a professional’s weapon.

Perishable Skills

The Armed Christian

I know I have probably mentioned this before on this blog but shooting is a perishable skill. You have to practice, regularly, if you want to have those skills when your life depends on them…or, the lives of your loved ones.

As many times as I have read this…

As many times as I have said this…

As many times as I have written this…

I still fall into the trap of neglecting these skills too. The Tuesday after Christmas Moose (my son in law) and I made it out to the range. Assuming I could pick up right where I left off on the rifle range (about a year ago) I was loaded down with three different rifles and several different loads for each to test out. Instead of groupings I was getting something that was more like the pattern from a shotgun. I wish I could claim that this performance was some awe…

A New Revolver From Colt!

The Armed Christian

New Years Day (actually, New Year’s Eve in the central time zone) brought some exciting news for those of us who love revolvers. Colt is getting back into the revolver game. Barring another bankruptcy, they will be releasing a new Colt Cobra in 2017.

2017 Colt Cobra 2017 Colt Cobra

Several sources released info on the new Colt at about the same time, as soon as the non-disclosure agreement allowed them to do so I am sure.

Unlike the original alloy–framed Cobra, the new Cobra is in solid stainless steel. It still remains a six shot snubbie and should be a pretty compelling alternative to the new Kimber K6. The $699 MSRP would make it around $200 cheaper than Kimber’s first foray into the revolver market although the Kimber does offer removable and adjustable sighs front and rear which the Colt does not. Nevertheless the Colt would be a good bit higher on my…

2017!

Hmmm… Santa bring nice toys for boom-boom stick.

Shoot, Camp, Fish

Happy New Year!!

First, I will close out the year by showing off my Christmas loot:

20161226_204559

When I get back to Rio Rancho, I will fill up my sandbags.  I was amused by the .22s with Santa Claus on the box.

For 2017, I think my sprig semester schedule has been adjusted such that I will be able to shoot in Monday night air rifle practice.

I will also make it a point to get out to the range at least once a month to shoot.  I have not been shooting nearly as often as I would have liked to.

Thank you for reading my post.  Happy New Year!

Ending 2016 with a hunt and a prayer

GalHunterMidlife

With slightly more than an hour left, Central Time, in 2016, it seemed appropriate to briefly reflect back on the year.

First; it has become the first deer season since I started hunting three deer seasons ago that I have not harvested a deer; at least not in 2016. There are still two days left in the season, the 1st & 2nd of January 2017 for extended rifle – antlerless in my Kansas unit.

Although 2016 is the year of the missed deer (having shot at and missed one doe and two bucks with my crossbow); I did harvest my first-ever Tom turkey during the spring, as well hunting and harvesting squirrel and rabbit. And though I failed to fill my freezer with venison, I was very blessed to have venison donated to me by Veterans 4 Veterans Outdoor Adventures; the same awesome not-for-profit organization that sponsored my…
