Re: Winchester/NRA Marksmanship - challenging you!

The group I did the tactical rifle sequence with still talk about how much fun we had! Saw some of them this last weekend at a shoot.

And, Congratulations! :tiphat:

2020 numbers

Added 479,372 new license holders for 2020 calendar year. Couldn't find a total number currently issued. Percentage of criminal convictions ticked up, to 0.4334 %, or 114 individuals. If you look at the total number of convictions for 2020, it's only 26,304. That's down a good 14 thousand from the r...

Re: Pistol Caliber Carbine Roundup

For 2 years, I tried to find a 45ACP carbine that would work. I'm not interested in thousands for a boat-anchor thompson or H&K unicorn. Without getting into specifics, I tried all the usual options and not one came close to working reliably if at all. To that end, we all laugh and make fun of ...

RSD Handgun website redesign

If you haven't peeked at the RSD page or the Handgun Licensing page in a while, they've redesigned the entire DPS site. Worth checking out so you can keep your students correctly informed. I've got to update screen shots in my LTC presentation. Quick impression is that it's simpler and more mobile f...

Re: ATF to Institute Rulemaking Regarding Stabilizing Braces and Require Registration of Currently Owned Braces

The NFA Division barely runs now with the Silencer (their term), SBR, SBS, AOW, Machine Gun, Form 5, Form 3, Form 2, Form 1 load they currently have. Delays of anywhere from 4 to 12 months. The only crime stat that will be altered will be an increase in formerly law abiding citizens getting jammed u...

Re: ATF to Institute Rulemaking Regarding Stabilizing Braces and Require Registration of Currently Owned Braces

ATF's proposed rule is a solution to a problem that we do not have. We do not have a problem with 'pistol braced firearms' committing crimes. We have a problem with criminals committing crimes who are emboldened by a justice system that will not bother to prosecute them. The NFA is a waste of govern...

Re: Any tips on keeping EDC Red Dots clean(er)

There are some anti static cloths you can try. I try to clean the lens weekly or after any range trip. Treat it like a pair of glasses. Soft cloth only. Avoid paper towels. Maybe It's a non-issue. I just figured someone here has a RDS on their EDC and carry in dirty environments. I try to clean min...

I pay a yearly Special Occupational Tax for the privilege, tied to our FFL. Not fair I know.

Re: Pistol Caliber Carbine Roundup

Ordered this for my birthday back in the spring. Finally shipped out this week and I got to start configuring it for maximum fun. Sig Sauer MPX, 4.5" barrel, in Biden/Harris approved configuration :headscratch

Re: Losers stole my catalytic converter

Quality cameras really make all the difference in the world. When I see low rez security footage, especially these days, it's irritating. Yes, it's an expense but a necessary one.

Re: Losers stole my catalytic converter

Maybe I'm missing something, but why would someone want to steal part of the exhaust system? Is there a huge black market for catalytic converters? What do people do with stolen catalytic converters? Get a quote to replace the cats on your vehicles and you'll quickly see why people steal them. Had ...
