...where I locked myself in the gun room and cranked out 700 .357s. Happy happy joy joy joy! Also working on ELITE TACTICAL UNIT and a competition thing I can't talk about yet. Got my BRILEY 10-shot tube for my Remington Versa Max, so I may use it in the Crimson Trace night 3-gun match next month. Probably be running Streamlight flame-throwers on the long guns. Definitely my JP rifle with the Leupold CQ/T. Ruger SR9. BTW, am having a SR9 built up with a Trijicon RMR by TSD Combat Systems. The drawback is the slide won't allow co-witnessing iron sights like on the Glock or the FNH, but I really want to give the system a try. If it works, I may replace my bedside Sig Sauer 226 9mm with an FNH .45.
Nice piece from Tam on the ridiculousness of laws that make inadvertantly "flashing" a concealed weapon a crime:
The proper action is to join the 21st Century and to eliminate the ridiculous "mandatory concealment" language that was a sop to the gun prohibitionists and makes you the laughingstock of most states in the Union, regardless of your feelings on Open Carry (and I don't OC myself, for whatever that's worth.)
I have said repeatedly the one of the greatest unintended consequences of the OC movement is the "decriminalization" of inadvertantly showing a concealed weapon. I live in an open carry state (Colorado), but when I go to Florida or Texas, I have to be extra special careful because their laws are nonsensical.
Wonderful piece from brother Massad Ayoob in BACKWOODS HOME magazine on taking a less-than-high speed gun afield:
Do you ever find yourself putting the modern, high-efficiency firearm back in the safe or the gun case, and heading out to the range or the field with something more “traditional” instead?
Great piece...read the comments!
