“I think it – there’s a romantic notion that somehow if Leviathan comes to take everything you have, you’re still going to have a gun with which to protect yourself,” Stephens said. “I’d like, I’d like conservatives to point to a single instance – what is it, the Whiskey Rebellion, was it the Brinks robbery, other acts of political violence in the United States, where conservatives who are saying they used their guns to protect their liberties? You won’t find a single instance of that.”

Was New Year night chosen to have Sirius highest at midnight?

When looking at the dates of the brightest stars, we cannot overlook the fact that the brightest star Sirius is highest on the Midnight of January 1st.

The question is was that the reason why January 1st was chosen on that date?

This question invites our thinking on ancient astronomy and time keeping.

The brightest stars and their dates are given in the following two figures.

Yes, Another New Release From Ruger…

I’m still partial to classic bolt actions such as the M77, or Over-Under 12 gauge shotguns with Classic lines. The new stuff is cost effective, but maybe because I was weaned on walnut and blue steel, I still love the classics.

The Armed Christian

Ruger released yet another cool rifle as part of their pre-SHOT Show blitz; the Ruger Precision Rimfire (link):

Ruger Precision Rimfire

This is a pretty cool bolt action .22 LR that feeds from 10/22 magazines and features an 18 inch cold hammer forged barrel and an action that has a nearly identical throw to the centerfire big brother.

Although I think this one is interesting thankfully it is not a “have to have it” like the PC Carbine.

I heard from a friend in the industry that Ruger has more new releases in the pipeline so we could be posting a lot more Ruger announcements here.

The 5 Worst Fake Gun Stories of 2017

Because the Trump administration and our Republican-controlled Congress is pro-Second Amendment, we’ve seen plenty of scare tactics in the news this year regarding guns.

It seems the mainstream media does whatever it can to make Americans frightened at the very mention of gun rights.

When do we Talk About Politics and Guns?

SlowFacts

We have our priorities. First, we have to keep guns away from children if we have guns in our home. Next, the adults with a gun in their home need to know how to handle firearms safely, and hopefully, effectively. What should come next? Talking about politics and guns seems to slip off our priority list, and that carries a danger of its own. Carrying a firearm for your safety is a very rational choice, but..there is a “but.” Unless you’re careful, you are also at risk of malicious prosecution for infringing one of our many gun laws. When is it time to talk about gun politics with new students and existing firearms owners?

This topic came to mind when politics leaked over into the gun discussion with a group of black friends. They wanted to keep our discussion of firearms separate from a larger discussion of partisan politics. I…

Deer Season 2017: Part 1

In my effort to get as much time in hunting as possible, while I prepared for my Christmas travels, I neglected my writing. Which is why I find myself now, 1200 miles from home, writing on my laptop in front of a pit-fire at my parents’ home.

This year’s deer season has been unusual, challenging, exciting, and surprising. As a bow hunter, crossbow due to my disabilities, and a rifle hunter; I embrace the opening of deer season-archery in early September, fairly confident that between September and the end of December I should be able to harvest at least one deer. My concern this year was that I could have a repeat of last year; which had me out hunting every possible day off, in every weather climate, with no harvest at all. (Thankfully the great patriots at Veterans 4 Veterans Outdoor Adventures donated venison to me last year). It…

A man in Chicago is earning praise after he turned the tables on an armed home invader, wrestling the criminals gun away and shooting him in the process.

Ayman Baker and his family were celebrating his younger brother’s birthday when three men broke into their apartment and demanded their money and valuables.

The men pistol-whipped Baker and his brother, but Baker told WGN his first instinct was to fight back and he struggled against one of the intruders.

“All I could think about during the whole moment was protecting my family,” Baker said. “I kept wrestling with him to the point where he closed the door and he kicked it down and I threw it back at him.”

The attackers moved to another room and threatened his mother, Baker said, forcing her…

Blog | GunMag Warehouse – The New Springfield Armory TRP 10mm Operator

I owned a Delta Elite, when they first came out. Pistol needed work beyond factory, which had cheapened up things. I believe the pistol was about maximum and actually thought a 4.5 inch barrel could have improved things. Springfield has gone with a 6.0 inch barrel, and reduces options for street carry. I will stick with a 1911A1 Series-70. The reason why I bought a 10mm is because I was looking for .45 acp+P loaded slightly hotter. All these years later, it is not a major issue. Why? Because, “ONLY THE HITS COUNT.”

This is what General George S.Patton Jr said about the M-1, “In my opinion, the M1 rifle is the greatest battle implement ever devised.”

https://conservativetribune.com/expert-lets-us-in-on-some-awesome-secrets-of-the-iconic-m1-garand-rifle/

Springfield Armory’s M1 Garand is one of the most iconic firearms in the world.

It was the brainchild of firearm designer John Cantius Garand. His first prototype was tested and accepted on July 21, 1937, for use with the United States Army and Marine Corps. Because of its primary use during the Second World War, it’s often seen in pictures being toted by GIs.

But today, the rifle is elusive for collectors, with only a few being offered through the Civilian Marksmanship Program. Quality models can cost upwards of $5,000.

Muslim Terrorist Caught Before His Planned Christmas Day Attack in San Francisco…

Officials have stopped a man who reportedly stated that “Christmas was the perfect day” for a terror attack in San Francisco and “did not need an escape plan because he was ready to die.”

MuzzieLastWillandTestament.JPG
We’ve learned the FBI has arrested a man by the name of Everitt Aaron Jameson from Modesto.

They say he wanted to target Pier 39.

According to FBI documents, Jameson picked out that location because he “had been there before and knew it was a heavily crowded area.” He added that it would be easy to “funnel” people into an area where he could inflict casualties.

Jameson reportedly said he was inspired by the New York terror attack on Oct. 31, when a Muslim drove into a crowd and killed eight people, and the deadly 2015 Muslim terror attack on a Christmas party in San Bernardino.

‘Not Silent At All’: Firearm Suppressor Makers Reject Hollywood Depictions

H/T The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Only in Hollyweird will a snub nosed .38 shoot a bad guy off the roof of a four story building and shoot 18 times before reloading.

Only in Hollyweird will a sound suppressor make weapon totally silent.

Hollywood isn’t too concerned with accuracy when it comes to depicting firearm use on the big screen.

Action stars taking precision shots from speeding cars, bad guys blasting away one-handed with fully automatic rifles — realism rarely figures in the picture.

Perhaps nowhere has the entertainment industry more thoroughly distorted how firearms really work than in the use of suppressors, or “silencers,” as they’re more menacingly called in popular culture. In the typical action flick, only government spies or contract killers use suppressed guns, their deadly shots muffled to near total silence.

Sierra Bullets 300 AAC Blackout Load Data

Sierra Bullets

Test Specifications/Components

Firearm Used: Universal Receiver

Barrel Length: 16″

Twist: 1-8’’

Case: Hornady

Trim-to Length: 1.363″

Primer: Winchester WSR

Remarks:

The 300 AAC Blackout (300 BLK, or 7.62x35mm) was created by Advanced Armament Corp. and Remington in order to provide the military with a way to shoot .30 caliber bullets from the M4 platform with only a barrel change. It has since become popular for a wide range of uses including hunting and home defense.

The cartridge shares case-head dimensions and body taper with the .223 Remington. Not only does this allow for compatibility with existing magazines and bolts, but it allows reloaders to form their own brass from cut-down 5.56mm or .223 cases – ensuring brass supply even in the event of a shortage of factory brass.

The 300 AAC Blackout is a similar concept to previous wildcats, such as the 30-221 and 300 Fireball, as well as…

#1615 90 gr HPBT GameKing

Sierra Bullets

Written by Ballistic Technician Philip Mahin

It was my understanding that Sierra’s 90gr HPBT GameKing #1615 was going to be the greatest thing since sliced bread in a 257 Roberts, and boy was that a correct statement!

I was finally able to purchase a limited run Ruger 77 Hawkeye chambered in the 257 Roberts cartridge. The factory walnut stock is shaped to fit me like a glove so it points easy and the trigger is clean. This makes it an easy shooter and is more than likely the reason it has shown me the accuracy it has. The 4-12×40 scope is mounted as low as it can be without touching the barrel and has a simple duplex reticle, just like I like a hunting gun to have.

U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- If you own or carry an Honor Guard pistol from Honor Defense, it might be time to rotate it back into your gun safe.  Patrick R. over at the Firearm Rack has done the shooting community a huge service by bringing to light the drop fire issues that the Honor Guard is susceptible too.

Honor Defense’s Honor Guard pistol is a single stack 9mm handgun, that is based on Sig Sauer’s P320.

The most striking similarity between Sig’s P320 and the Honor Guard is that they will both fire if dropped on a negative 30-degree angle. Impact to the back of the gun will cause the striker to hit the primer and ignite the cartridge. Unfortunately, that is where the similarities seem to end.

The .22 Carbine For Home Defense?

-The low cost of acquisition and ammo

-Low recoil and ease of use, especially for non-gun folks and younger family members

To be honest, when we were first married Wonderful Wife and I did not have a lot. We didn’t really worry about being robbed because we were the poorest folks in the neighborhood.

We like to say that gun owners are responsible people. We say it, but the anti-gun zealots don’t acknowledge it. They point to the anecdotal data of some moron doing something stupid, or they point to violent crime rates as evidence that we’re somehow all unhinged and just waiting to snap.

However, a study from Oregon State University found that gun owners really internalize the responsibility of handgun ownership.

In a study published today, Oregon State University researchers have identified ways that handgun owners attempt to mitigate those risks, including developing routines with their firearms, practicing target shooting and self-defense simulations and mentally rehearsing self-defense scenarios. The researchers conclude that while these efforts do decrease some risk, they can never fully prepare someone for the risks posed in an actual self-defense situation.

KWCH 12 Eyewitness News:  KIDS & GUNS: These Kansas kids are learning how to handle guns AND use them

2nd Amendment, Shooting & Firearms Blog

It is VERY important for young children to learn and understand guns for pure safety reasons and to have a healthy respect and knowledge about them.  Learning gun safety in a controlled environment is vital to preventing future gun related accidents! This will also set a strong foundation for years and years of shooting recreation for these kids!

Inside America’s Growing Bulletproof Clothing Industry

Gun Culture 2.0

After a long series of heavy posts on gun training with Suarez International, how about something a bit on the lighter side? At least relatively speaking.

I previously posted in full my response to a writer’s request for comments on the rise of bulletproof fashion.

I am happy to say that the article is now published on Racked.com and the author drew on my comments liberally and fairly.

Screen cap of https://www.racked.com/2017/12/14/16738162/bulletproof-clothing

I had fun with this particular media inquiry because it allowed me to talk about some serious issues in the context of a story about something that is relatively frivolous as concerns most armed citizens.

Until someone comes up with a way to sell a bulletproof or bullet-resistant suit for $400 and it is no longer frivolous. For the right price, I would buy one. Would you?

Arizona -(Ammoland.com)- Nancy Pelosi is ignorant about the state of gun laws. It is not surprising. Many people base their decisions about guns and laws on ignorance. It is possible that she is lying.

I suspect ignorance. Most Progressive decisions about guns are made from false assumptions about reality.

Once those assumptions have been internalized, there is no need for further thought or learning about guns and gun laws.

Those decisions have already been made. The assumptions are obvious in the following statement from Nancy Pelosi.

Urge Your Senators not to be Fooled by Fraudulent Claims

I can’t recall anything like this in recent memory.

Some pro-gun supporters are clamoring for legislation that has the “who’s who” of the anti-gun Democrat movement cosponsoring it. 

I’m talking about S. 2135, the anti-gun Fix NICS bill, where Democrat Senators Dianne Feinstein, Chuck Schumer and Chris Murphy have teamed up with Republican John Cornyn of Texas.

The sponsors of the Cornyn-Schumer-Feinstein bill (S. 2135) are appealing to pro-gun supporters by fraudulently holding out section 2(2) of their gun control bill as some big achievement. They claim it will require records corrections within 60 days for people erroneously denied under the Brady Law.

But guess what?  The Brady Law itself, at Statutes at Large subsections (f) and (g), already requires the FBI to give a reason for a denial in five business days, and provides that “the Attorney…

Majority Of Iowans Understand New Laws Won’t Stop Mass Shootings

The anti gun crowd will always keep demanding new gun laws even though they will never work.

I mean after all we have laws against murder and robbery but robberies and murders still happen.

Everyone wants mass shootings to stop. Everyone sane, at least. They’re terrible events that probably should unite all Americans, if only they weren’t politicized quite so quickly, often before we even know anything. Invariably, someone wants to pass some new law that really won’t solve anything but will make life that much more difficult for we ordinary gun owners.

However, in Iowa, a recent poll suggests that folks in that state understand just how useless those laws are.

A majority of Iowans believe increased controls on gun purchases won’t reduce mass shootings, according to a new Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa Poll.

Fifty-six percent of Iowa adults say additional controls won’t lead to fewer mass shootings. Forty percent believe…

From Mozambique to Istanbul to Sutherland Springs

Gun Culture 2.0

Earlier this year, the colorful Sheriff Jim Wilson published a colorful history of the famous Mozambique drill on the website of Shooting Illustrated.

From 1964 to about 1974, Mozambique was going through a serious difference of opinion called the Mozambican War of Independence. Mike Rousseau was one of the mercenaries hired to fight in that war. In the course of the conflict, Rousseau was engaged in the fighting at the airport in the city of Lourenco Marques (since renamed Maputo). During that scrap, Rousseau, armed only with a Browning Hi Power, rounded the corner of a building and came face to face with an enemy combatant armed with an AK-47.

Rousseau made a quick combat presentation with his pistol and planted two bullets in the area of his opponent’s breastbone. In a fighter’s worst nightmare, the soldier not only stayed on his feet, he managed to hang onto his rifle…

San Fran Buyback Offers THIS For Your Guns

Give Me Liberty

H/T Bearing Arms.

The ignorance of these gun buy back programs never ceases to amaze me. 

A buyback program in San Francisco is going a little off the beaten path.

You see, most buyback programs want to make sure you can’t use what they’re giving you to buy more guns, so they tend to give you gift cards. The wisdom of this is debatable, but I see where their thinking is. They usually use gift cards from places within the community and are often for places like grocery stores or big box retailers. Apparently, they think everyone who attends a buyback needs the money to eat or something.

The San Francisco program goes in a very different direction. They’re offering cold, hard cash.

Many tragic stories we hear today involve guns — the UPS shooting in Junemultiple domestic violence cases, and the death of Kathryn Steinle

When You Are Called On To Change History: Counter-Terrorist Proactive Shooting with Gabe Suarez

Duty, as cited in Psalm 31, when you are placed into harm’s way, and have faith to muster strength to do what must be done. The reality of it all, is that as time goes by in America, You really could be, Called, upon.

Gun Culture 2.0

The final part of Suarez International’s Pistol Gunfighting School completes the paradigm shift from Tactical Clue 1997 – the old Modern Technique of the (Defensive) Pistol – to Tactical Clue 2017 – the New Modern Technique of the (Offensive) Pistol.

As noted in my last post, rather than imagining the typical counter-ambush defensive scenario, Suarez is suggesting the students prepare themselves mentally and physically for a counter-terrorist offensive scenario.

The same principles of gunhandling and marksmanship that Suarez taught on day 1 still apply, but now the skills employed shift from reactive point shooting to proactive precision shooting. In a proactive event, the shooter needs a good sight picture and index, more focus on breathing, and a better trigger press and follow through.

The level of precision required is much finer in the proactive event than in the reactive…

Man Arrested For Stealing Guns From UPS Facility

H/T Bearing Arms.

No matter what the gun grabbers say about bad guys being able to buy guns in truth they get their guns by stealing them.

Guns have to be shipped somehow. Whether the gun grabbers like it or not, they’re legal to sell and since not every town can have a factory churning out the latest and greatest firearms, that means they need to be transported somehow.

UPS is a popular choice for that purpose.

However, a group of men in Tennessee decided they had a better idea of where guns being shipped needed to end up.

One of the men wanted by police after 12 guns were stolen from a local UPS facility has been taken into custody.

According to authorities, Christopher Brown and several other men were caught on camera breaking into a locked tractor trailer at the East Holmes Road location. They reportedly loaded…

Reactive Shooting and Movement in Gabe Suarez’s New Modern Technique

Gun Culture 2.0

In previous posts, I have suggested that Gabe Suarez’s Pistol Gunfighting School draws on and updates Col. Jeff Cooper’s Modern Technique of the Pistol. Suarez’s New Modern Technique (my term, not his) is indebted to Cooper’s Combat Triad (mindset, gunhandling, marksmanship) and the combat mindset part of the triad (mental conditioning for combat) in particular.

Here I want to press ahead with my analysis of Suarez’s Pistol Gunfighting School by highlighting Suarez’s biggest departure from the old Modern Technique: the distinction between reactive and proactive shooting. This distinction has implications for both the why and how of shooting.

In terms of “why,” the distinction between reactive and proactive shooting parallel the previously discussed difference between 1997 Tactical Clue and 2017 Tactical Clue. Reactive shooting addresses the problem of the “thug in the parking lot with a screwdriver,” while proactive shooting…

Racism has nothing to due with Army Helicopters being named for American Indian tribes.

Burlington Police Chief Puts New York Politicians Before Vermonters

H/T The NRA/ILA.

It is time for the city of Burlington to replace this moron as Police Chief.

As H.R. 38, the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017, comes closer to becoming law, the arguments against the legislation are increasingly strained. There are disingenuous appeals to federalism by those who would happily burden firearms owners under any number of federal gun control schemes. Despite Right-to-Carry permit holders’ sterling record as one of the country’s most law-abiding demographics, lawmakers fear monger about the purported dangers of letting these virtuous Americans exercise their rights in Times Square. 

Perhaps inspired by these efforts, on November 29, Burlington, Vt. Police Chief Brandon del Pozo, – a Brooklyn native, Dartmouth and John F. Kennedy School of Government alumnus, former NYPD deputy inspector, and self-described “political philosopher” – offered the stupidest argument against Right-to-Carry reciprocity to date.

Marksmanship and Gunhandling in Gabe Suarez’s New Modern Technique

Indebted as he is to Col. Jeff Cooper, Gunsite, and the Modern Technique of the Pistol, it is not surprising that much of what Gabe Suarez teaches in his Pistol Gunfighting School is quite conventional.

As with so many gun training courses, the class begins with a safety briefing, a medical briefing, and an administrative briefing.

As the first day goes on, Suarez covers a number of many elements of the Modern Technique, often with his own particular spin.

Compromise is, generally, not a dirty word. Husbands and wives do it all the time. Business partners do it too. Anytime two individuals or groups have a disagreement, compromise helps them manage that disagreement.

Where it becomes a dirty word, however, is when you know the other side won’t change their endgame. They’ll keep pushing for the same thing, so by compromising, you simply give them what they want incrementally.

Jeff Cooper 2.0: Gabe Suarez and the New Modern Technique of the Pistol

A commenter on my Facebook page partial to Jeff Cooper and the Modern Technique was critical of what he called the Post-Modern Technique of the Pistol – contemporary teaching that departs from the essentials taught in Version 1.0.

My experience is not as substantial as many others’, but it seems to me based on my observations so far that what we see in the mainstream of the gun training industry is not a leaving behind of the Modern Technique (post-modernism) but an updating of the Modern Technique (neo-modernism).

This makes sense because so much of the expanding tree of gun trainers traces its roots back to Col. Jeff Cooper. Many are either students of Cooper (direct or indirect), or students of Cooper’s students (direct or indirect). At least on the national level.

Unknown to Hansen, the manufacturer of the rifle that injured him in 2014 had received other complaints of explosions and injuries over the prior decade. Customers repeatedly reported that the barrel of the stainless steel 10 ML-II muzzleloader exploded, burst, split or cracked, according to thousands of court documents reviewed by The Associated Press.

The Combat Triad: How Gunsite Has Changed Its Mind(set)

I’ve been taking a pretty nitty-gritty look at the Modern Technique of the Pistol in my last few posts (“blessing and curse,”“simply and briefly,” and “updating”). In this post I want to continue with my thoughts on the Gunsite 250 Defensive Pistol Course and the Modern Technique, but take a step back to look at the big picture as concerns the Combat Triad.

Of the three parts of the Combat Triad, the Gunsite 250 course I observed emphasized gunhandling and marksmanship far more than mindset. For the most part, the combat mindset part of the triad was restricted to a 45 minute lecture on Wednesday afternoon by Rangemaster Bill Halvorsen. I understand that this is the traditional day and time for “the mindset lecture”; my point more concerns the confinement of the combat mindset to that classroom session.

California’s Inefficiency May Screw Over Ammo Vendors

No big surprise that Commifornia is screwing over law abiding gun owners and ammo vendors.

California has a reputation as perhaps the most anti-gun state in the country. Yes, New York, New Jersey, and Illinois have all made their bids to be part of that number, but Massachusetts may be one of the few states who really compares to California when it comes so pretending the Second Amendment amounts to nothing more than a polite suggestion.

The latest problem in California comes from an issue involving ammo sales. You see, the state passed a new law that created new regulations for ammunition vendors. The process for complying with those regulations, however,  didn’t come from the legislature, but from the bureaucracy, and that’s where the problems kick in.

The right to self-defense is fundamental to a free people. So says the Second Amendment, and Americans hearing it loud and clear are the proud owners of guns enough to arm nearly every man, woman and child. When ne’er-do-wells turn their weapons against the innocent, it’s responsibly armed citizens who must provide defense in the absence of the police. That’s why rules that force concealed carry permit holders to leave their firearms at home when they travel are foolish rules. Congress must finish the job of empowering the good and responsible man and woman with a gun.

Concealed carry reciprocity would make America safer….

Freedom Is Just Another Word...

The right to self-defense is fundamental to a free people. So says the Second Amendment, and Americans hearing it loud and clear are the proud owners of guns enough to arm nearly every man, woman and child. When ne’er-do-wells turn their weapons against the innocent, it’s responsibly armed citizens who must provide defense in the absence of the police. That’s why rules that force concealed carry permit holders to leave their firearms at home when they travel are foolish rules. Congress must finish the job of empowering the good and responsible man and woman with a gun.

House to Vote Today on Gun Bill

GOA = NO COMPROMISE. “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.”

Freedom Is Just Another Word...

GOA will not advocate for a bill enforcing gun control
Yesterday, the House Rules Committee voted to combine the reciprocity and anti-gun “Fix NICS” bills (H.R. 38 and H.R. 4477).

The combined bill now goes to the House floor, with votes scheduled for today.

Because of the united push from gun control groups, the NRA and many House Republicans, the “Fix NICS” portion has an OVERWHELMING majority in the House.

Not only that, a stand-alone “Fix NICS” bill has an OVERWHELMING majority in the Senate. This is further evidenced by the fact that Republican Senate leaders Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn — along with Democrat leaders Chuck Schumer and Chris Murphy — are all cosponsors and strongly supporting Fix NICS (S. 2135).

So the result of passing the NICS bill apart from reciprocity would be for gun control to be fast-tracked to President Trump’s desk, while reciprocity died under a…

Range Report: Annual Hunting Trip

The Armed Christian

Last weekend was our annual “guys weekend” hunting trip to North Texas and I wanted to share a few thoughts and observations…

The Good

The Ruger American Predator in .308 is a great rifle (for me).

The rifle is nice an light. Unlike some other rifles I have used, carrying it through the woods, mud and brush all day on was no problem. No wrist or shoulder pain like I have had carrying some other rifles. The “Claw” sling from Quake did a great job keeping the rifle in place so I didn’t have to worry and hold it in place all day.

Little rifle, little piggy and a big round…

Accuracy, as long as I did my part, was dead on and the Vortex Crossfire II 2×7 scope was perfect for both the the tighter shooting needs on a stalk through thick brush as well as longer ranges from…

Whither the Weaver Stance and the 1911 Heavy-Duty Self-Loading Pistol at Gunsite?

There’s no, one stance fits all. With semi-auto pistol, I like a Modified Weaver stance. With the service revolver, we were trained in turret stance.
In shooting event #1, I used the sitting behind the steering wheel stance. In shooting event #2, I used (a)perp #1, (b) perp #2, the Wild Bill Hickok draw from the holster and fire, (c) perp #3, kneel behind cover stance. In shooting event #3, that was in darkness, looking at motion of dark figures/shadows, fired from turret stance.
Nothing in life is perfect. Get a strong foundation, then build up, from there. Different events could have different sets of variable factors. The one thing I have noticed, is that I never thought about, what stance. I do not recall ever seeing the sights. Practice is important, so that instinctively, the shooter can employ whatever the situation requires, in stance, and shooting, without ever hesitating to think about it. You just know, and do it. That is why, you train the way you fight, and fight the way you train. Try to keep it simple, and quick paced.

Gun Culture 2.0

In my last post I gave a broad overview of the similarities and differences in the Modern Technique of the Pistol at Gunsite then and now. Here I want to continue that line of thinking by considering the status of the Weaver Stance and the Heavy-duty Self-Loading Pistol, two major elements of the Modern Technique that have changed some over the years.

Looking at what is taught in the classroom and on the range explicitly gives a good sense of how the heavy-duty pistol and the Weaver stance are handled at Gunsite today.

Gunsite 40th Anniversary Colt 1911 pistol, from http://www.gunsitestore.com

In the opening lecture of the 250 Defensive Pistol course, Rangemaster Bill Halvorsen – who has taught at Gunsite nearly 30 years, since 1988 – explains that the overall objective of the course is “to ensure you become well-grounded in the Modern Technique of the Pistol.”

He elaborates…

Socialism is not the Answer

The Federalist Papers

According to Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.), the Concealed Carry Reciprocity bill currently working its way through Congress will include a trojan horse, added by Democrats, that could make it more difficult for Americans to obtain guns.

POLICE CHIEF LOSES GUN, BUT POLITICIANS WANT TO RESTRICT YOUR GUN RIGHTS?

Politicians, also lose handguns, due to carelessness, and it was forbidden to revoke their, gun permits.

Give Me Liberty

H/T Keep And Bear.

The Prescott Valley Arizonan, Chief of Police Bryan Jarrell loses his Glock yet does not report it for four days yet nothing happens to him.

Following the Las Vegas shooting at the beginning of October and the Texas church massacre in November, gun grabbing politicians across the country and in DC sought to violate the Second Amendment with more than 21 pieces of legislation.  However, when it comes to policemen losing their guns, which puts a lot of citizens in danger, and in this case most definitely children, they are deafeningly silent.

Prescott Valley, Arizona Chief of Police Bryan Jarrell apparently lost his weapon in a library when he went to the bathroom during a city council meeting.

AZ Family reports:

According to a news release from the agency, Chief Bryan Jarrell left his gun in a bathroom stall at the Prescott Valley Library at about 6 p.m…

Protecting your Second Amendment rights

All well and good but.., states like new York and California, the “Refuse to Issue” states, will need to be “tuned up”, and made “Shall Issue”, states.
CONSTITUTIONAL CARRY, IS, THE ANSWER.

Freedom Is Just Another Word...

Protecting your Second Amendment rights
Dear Friend, Preserving and protecting the constitutional rights of men and women in our district has been one of my top priorities since entering Congress—including your Second Amendment rights. The House of Representatives is expected to vote very soon on the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, H.R. 38, of which I’m a cosponsor.

You should know that this bill takes a big step forward in protecting your Second Amendment rights by modifying the federal laws surrounding concealed carry permits. The bill would allow law-abiding citizens who hold a concealed carry permit in their state of residence to legally travel to another state while carrying a concealed firearm for lawful purposes, and of course while complying with the particular gun laws of each state they are visiting such as gun-free zones.

The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act establishes equal access and the right to self-defense for all Americans…
