The Range

   Ole buzzard  Three more high profile shootings in less than a week. And the disinformation starts coming out about the Las Vegas shooting. The husband of the pair was killed by a police bullet, not his wife's. She, then, took her own life.

Too many shootings in too short a time, and IMMEDIATELY the Lamestream Media comes out blaming the Tea Party, NRA, etc., etc., ad nauseam!

False Flags, every last one of them, I say. I'm convinced that the Obama administration will do ANYTHING to foment enough rage to get us to shoot first.

   Ole buzzard  After the Santa Barbara killings, I was appalled by the fact that the father of the young man killed at the deli used his camera time not to grieve for the loss of his son, but to try to advance his gun control agenda. What parent does that?????

My guess is that this is another false flag. Twitter is alive with erroneous information. People are saying that all six victims were shot; that all six victims were young women (only two were ); and all kinds of misinformation and disinformation.

   Safetydude  This was the inspiration for my present.
Guess it'a a good idea to leave stuff laying around as hints.

I'm going to leave a copy of "Car and Driver", with a Ferrari on the cover, just in case...

   Safetydude  Top,
This is the one Mike got me.

And just as an aside.
I don't know what you pay for ammo in GA but I bought a box of 50 Federsl .45ACP hollow point rounds for twenty-six dollars + tax, here in FL.

   Ole buzzard  $.52 per round for hollow points sounds about right.

   Safetydude  Ran fifty rounds through it today. I guess I'm a bit rusty...

I had good groupings but they were all left of center. I never thought to compensate for the wing blowing 7-10kts right to left. Didn't think the wind would have much effect at 25 yards.

No flags to remind you.

   Ole buzzard  The velocity of a .45 at 25 yards is considerably less than a .357, so windage effect will be exaggerated.

   Safetydude  Thank's for that Top.

I got 300 rounds of 45cal target loads to burn at an INDOOR range north of Atlanta this weekend.
It's our son's fortieth birthday and he wants to try the Ruger he got me for my birthday.

(We're giving him a "Big Green Egg" for his birthday )

   Ole buzzard  I guess I should come here to read more often. I also go to a range north of Atlanta (even though I'm 60 miles south ) called Range, Guns & Safes. One of the nicest ranges around, and friendly staff. It would have been nice to meet face to face, and I need to get some range time in.

   Safetydude  Sounds like a plan, Top.
I'll let you know when we plan our next trip to Atlanta.

The range Mike took me to is in Canton and is named
"Hi Caliber".

Are you near Macon or Thomaston? We take 475 around Macon but could make detour and meet for lunch.

(No, not the picture wise guy, the real thing )
My first .45. Can't wait to compare it to my .357 Ruger.

   Ole buzzard  Now it seems the Governor Cuomo in New York has a non-compliance problem on his hands. They're estimating that over 90% of owners of so-called "assault weapons" have not registered.

To the law-abiding gun owners of New York: Good Show!!!

   Ole buzzard  Yes, Dude, a lot of people put in a lot of effort to get this bill passed, and just yesterday in Cumming GA, an idiot was going around a Little League baseball game, open carrying, asking people if they wanted to see his gun.

People like that do nothing to promote what we have been fighting for.

   Rollingcow  I noticed that we have actual green grass in our back yard and they say we'll be in the 60's this weekend! Time to head to and outdoor range, I'm so sick of shooting inside.

   Ole buzzard  Good idea. I need to get some rifle time in, too. The indoor range I go to will not let me fire my .30-30 there.

   Ole buzzard  The Georgia Department of Natural Resources offers a range pass that allows me to take a carload of people to any range at any Wildlife Management Area in Georgia for only $35.00 per year.

   Ole buzzard  I have not fired one, but have seen them demonstrated (there are several different brands ). There are a couple available for my Mini-14, but I want to keep the wood stock and forearm.

   Ole buzzard  Nothing new in the last week about the situation in Connecticut, but it seems like the New Jersey legislature is working on a bill regarding "assault weapons" and "large capacity magazines". I'll have to find the article again, but one person giving testimony was a gun range owner who has $50,000 in inventory and range equipment that would be instantly illegal. He wanted to know who was going to compensate him for that loss. He also said that he would not comply, and surmised that upwards of one million New Jerseyites also would not comply.

Why do these politicians keep passing these bills that only set the stage for confrontation? Can't they see the predictable outcomes of their actions? Are they REALLY representing the will of their constituents, or trying to advance their own agendas?

   Ole buzzard  Well, this is not good. Seems CT Governor Malloy is going to stand by his law. He has basically told gun owners "Your side lost. Get over it." Sounds like the anointed one talking to McCain during the health care meeting.

   Ole buzzard  It appears that cooler heads are prevailing in Connecticut. Officer Peterson (who wanted to "kick doors in" ) has been threatened and provided with guards. The Branford Police are in contact with the individuals against whom Peterson made his threats and are working to defuse the situation. Those acting in favor of the Second Amendment appear to have the moral high ground and to be winning in the arena of ideas. Let's wish them well.

   Ole buzzard  Further developments: All but two of the state's county sheriffs have said that they will not enforce, or allow enforcement of, Bill 13-3. Sounds like a big chunk of the law enforcement community is on the Pro 2A side here.
