Holder agrees to testify

So who does Holder work for

The DOJ, or Mexico City?

PSH in Wisconsin

But the author does make the point that some people carry guns to kill other people

Which is why I carry a gun, I do not want to be killed

You are doing it wrong

My left hand was locked on my right wrist, and I stood sideways with my feet slightly apart. I squeezed one eye shut, focused the other on a target about 40 feet away and braced myself for the kickback. I pulled the trigger, and the muzzle of my Sig Sauer 9mm flashed and jerked upward.

 Springfield Armory Cut away
Larry Vickers Explaining the beaver tail safety

All in all a decent class, after 2 days on the range and in the shoot house, we moved to the classroom.  Both instructors had strong opinions concerning todays production guns, both favor the Wilson Combat CQB.
The major points they made was the 1911 does need to maintained (Vickers "If you are going to treat your gun like your lawnmower get a Glock")
Use quality magazines and replace your recoil springs often, and keep them well lubed. Hackathorn recommended Mobil 1.

We Are Winning

Gallup says so

So you'll pledge Allegiance to the UN?

 Vet protests the pledge of allegiance

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin.

But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...
There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all.
We have room for but one flag, the American flag...
We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language.
And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people"

“Every immigrant who comes here should be required within five years to learn English or leave the country.”
- Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President, 1902

1911 Class day 2, Shot an Uzi

I think I had pretty good trigger control, getting 3 bursts out of 10 rounds, and I prevailed in the Dosier Drill, beating the other person with the Uzi.

Ken Hackathorn did a good job with the shoot house, and among the drills Larry Vickers ran some good malfunction drills on the flat range.

Round table tonight there were several pretty collectable hand guns, and discussion of the history of JMB's top inventions

The range was so busy I didn't get phots, and when Iwas going to take them of some of the rare 1911's found I had left the memory card at home

Went to Applebees for dinner

Did'nt see a single "No Guns" sign

Very cool

Wierd Directions

For stoved shoulder stopped and got one of those medicated hot/cold patches

From the directions:
Wear one patch up to 8 hour
Repeat as necessary, but not more than 3 times a day

Some where they have longer than 24 hour days?

What did you say they did??

The men theatrically ripped off the actors’ T-shirts and their “victims” then slowly fell to the ground in simulated, economic death.

How do you throw a shoulder out sleeping?

Felt fine this morning, but when I fired the first magazine this morning it felt like I'd attached myself to a high voltage line, even with lots of Advil, it didn't get any better.

In addition both of the Kimber Stainless II's (9mm) had issues....

To top it off locked both sets of keys in the trunk.
Well there is always tomorrow


Dark O'thirty am, motel pillow must have been made out wood,  moving slowly and stiffly.

It will be a cold start on range but suppose to improve, report on course later today

Really Dennis?

So how would Not having a permit prevented Loughner from driving to Times Square?

This guy didn't have an explosives permit, and he found Times Square

Of course you also missed the fact that Utah changed the requirements on non-resident licenses, you now need a resident license to get a Utah non-resident ccw, with a few exceptions.

Obama's Warning to Gun Owners

Not that Obama, the other Obama

Good advice

If you own a gun, or decide you may need one, please invest in the best firearms training course you can find, because it's better to be safe than sorry …

But the line that caught my eye:

Big government budgets reduced the need for individual responsibility.

 Local governments, she said, ought to train law enforcement officers so they are prepared for bizarre cases such as the one that unfolded in Zanesville.

They don't get enough training to deal with the "Normal" bizarre cases they get.

It had to pretty hair-raising to take on Bengal tigers with handguns

Both have MOLLE loops so you can add on, the back pack might be more comfortable to carry any extended time, and it is about half the price of the Drago

Jews for Guns

If you quote

Use the entire quote, not just the part you like

As long as there are guns, the individual that wants a gun for a crime is going to have one and going to get it. The only person who’s going to be penalized and have difficulty is the law-abiding citizen, who then cannot have [it] if he wants protection -- the protection of a weapon in his home.

Ammunition Smuggling

One sentence stood out for editorial oversight:

The weapons favored by groups like the Zetas and the Gulf Cartel -- including an AK-47 knock-off known as the "cuerno de chivo" -- are high-power assault weapons which can fire up to one full round with each pull of the trigger

Because there are no legal requirements to report mass sales of ammunition, U.S. law enforcement agencies have little ability to identify and track suspicious purchases. This is basically the same problem facing agencies like the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) when it comes to breaking up gun trafficking networks.

It's a little disarming," she said. "This is such a quiet community. We don't expect things like this."

"It's like Mayberry in the middle of Los Angeles," said Doyle Surratt, lead pastor of SeaCoast Grace Church. "We're small and all the kids go to school together."

 There are no safe places, or safe neighborhood, and sadly in places like California only large groups victims, as the government does not trust the law abiding to be armed.

Gun Running

Now it's the ammunition

One factor that enables the smuggling is the relative ease with which bullets can be bought in the United States. There are few restrictions on the number of rounds someone can buy.

few restrictions exist for buying ammunition in the U.S. Laws that once treated ammunition sales as rigorously as gun sales were repealed in 1986 and have not been re-enacted.

I remember a sheet we put our names on for handgun ammo but that is about it

Gun used in Ihop shooting

The lady is wise, listen well to her words

I really do tell my students repeatly that they need to continue training, practicing the skills but few seem to listen

In the video below, do you see skill, and training, or panic and luck?

The robber could have pumped rounds through the door, It is hard to tell if she tagged him or not, but he could have shot while she was on the floor

If you do not practice a skill, it may not be there when you need it.

The common trait of old warriors is that they continually sharpen themselves by study, by training, by cultivation of spirit: always striving to be better tomorrow than today.

Warriors who do not do this do not live to be old warriors.

I really liked the fact that he undid the chain, and threw it in the back of the truck, I suppose so he could claim the dog was running loose.

Let's reword the quote!

While we admire the pro-Second Amendment aims of the law, we disagree that the state should restrict local governments in the ?interest of protecting gun rights.

While we admire the pro-First Amendment aims of the law, we disagree that the state should restrict local governments in the ?interest of protecting free speech rights.
While we admire the pro-Fourth Amendment aims of the law, we disagree that the state should restrict local governments in the ?interest of protecting search and seizure rights

Not in my America

"The basic requirement to register a handgun is longstanding in American law, accepted for a century in diverse states and cities and now applicable to more than one fourth of the nation by population," the judges wrote. However, the court said the district must show "an important or substantial government interest" in maintaining what the court deemed the district's "novel" registration requirements.
Those include: banning residents from registering more than one firearm per month; requiring gun owners to undergo vision tests, fingerprinting and background checks; and requiring registration of shotguns and rifles.

I do feel a bit of sorrow for those behind enemy lines

Well the NRA is the membership

By the 1970's we realized the old NRA was bargining away our rights, and the membership changed the leadership

First they came for the machine guns, I didn't step up because I didn't have a machine gun
Then they came for short barreled shotguns, I didn't step up because I didn't have a short barreled shotgun
Then they came for the silencers, I didn't step up because I didn't have a silencer
Then they came for the handguns, and I didn't step up because I didn't have a handgun
Then they came for my fine target rifle, and there was no one left to step up for me

Zombie Shoot in Ohio

Something followed me home from gun-show

9mm Colt Combat Commander Series 70

It had original Colt grips, but I had a spare set of CT grips I installed, it is my first Colt pistol, does show some use, outside, but shoots real well.

What Not to do

when you gun malfunctions

Why are Anti's

So violent?

My view

GRPC in Chicago,  yes they chose it as it does not allow its citizens the right to arms.

I did have a conflict in my own schedule, but I'm also not going to attend an event that I have to deprive myself of my rights, or contribute money to a place that wants to deprive me of my rights. It was not the event itself, as with the NRA in Charlotte NC the venue was questioned, but at least in traveling to the event, in the motel etc I could still have the right and means of defense, but traveling into a state and a city that forbid it was my issue.
