Re: Front Sight Focus---Or Not...

As a competitive shooter, I used to believe that 7 yards and in the speed that you gain was worth the slight sacrifice in accuracy. I can now unequivocally state that is NOT the case. Beyond about 2 yards, the most efficient way to shoot is with a perfect grip AND a focused front sight. This is not ...

(Another) CA professor making outrageous comments

I don't normally advocate someone being fired over expressing their first amendment protected views while not at work. I am making an exception on this one. This "woman" has no business in the classroom! Hopefully Fresno State will do the right thing. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/0...

Give me a cotton picking break!

PC police out in full force. Most have used this phrase with absolutely no racial intent. It's just a replacement for dad-gum or other phrases.

Re: Deerfield Illinois

A group of us had a discussion the other night after our weekly match about where our line in the sand is. The consensus was that when the items I purchased in good faith and without malicious intent are deemed illegal, the civil disobedience will begin. When "they" attempt to confiscate t...

Pretty darn good.

P.S. he was smarter than you...


He had a higher IQ, the fact that he was an atheist makes an argument that IQ does not equate to smart.

Three comments on this article 1. We're picky about terms because WORDS MATTER. Terms that are being thrown about like "assault weapons', "weapons of war", "machine gun", "gun show loophole" etc are being used not because the people developing the talking points ar...

Re: Essential long gun collection

Best way to build a good long gun collection 1. Get a random customer to go grab a random box of ammo off the shelf for you. 2. Take said box of ammo home 3. Convince the wife that you need to get a gun to go with new ammo (don't mention anything to her if random ammo winds up being a caliber you al...

Re: Mother of dead Popeyes robber: ‘Why did he shoot him five times'

Now it makes me wonder. If I were in that situation, how many shots would I pull off before I stop? I know it'll be at least two, possibly 3 depending on how likely the perp is to be incapacitated at that point. That is all assuming I'm in control of my faculties as adrenaline is pumping through my...
