You’ll hate me for this
Senator Doug Overbey has never been a friend to gun owners. See past posts here. Received this in email today on the guns in parks bill:
I mentioned their suppressor, The Church Mouse, a bit back. The other neat thing they should be was the 260 Dingo cartridge. Here it is:
It’s 6.5mm, 100 grain bullet that hits speeds of 3,700 feet per second. With their proprietary muzzle device, recoil is basically like an AR. But here’s the thing that interested me. A fired round and an unfired cartridge:
See that? How it blew out. They said that is because the case is fire formed and expands when fired, giving the round more oomph. Never heard of such a thing. I didn’t know it was a thing.
A big fireball at a gun range that injured more than a dozen. Caused by heavy equipment hitting a gas line.
Police can’t extend traffic stop awaiting drug dog. I really expected this to go the other way. Good!
With the obligatory NRA hit piece. A “new” “pro gun” group of democrats will soon emerge too.
Saw the pitch at the NRA AM but here’s a write up on it by Lee Williams.
Training issue. This is a fun game!
That is how this should end.
Gun licenses surge. In MA
First, I (and you) foot the bill for their mismanagement and union kowtowing. Now, this:
Automakers are supporting provisions in copyright law that could prohibit home mechanics and car enthusiasts from repairing and modifying their own vehicles.
In comments filed with a federal agency that will determine whether tinkering with a car constitutes a copyright violation, OEMs and their main lobbying organization say cars have become too complex and dangerous for consumers and third parties to handle.
An uber driver, with a concealed carry permit, shot someone who was firing into a crowd. In Chicago.
A regular reader emailed me about his new endeavor, Midnight Rider Marksmen:
I am proud to announce the launch of Midnight Rider Marksmen (MRM), a new national non-profit organization dedicated to educating the public in American history, supporting the shooting sports, and promoting civic engagement.
MRM is named in honor of Paul Revere and the other brave riders who rode through the night to warn American patriots that “the regulars were out!” on April 19th, 1775.
Our organization has about 60 instructors in over a dozen states and we are looking to schedule events throughout 2015. We expect to start getting initial events on the books in the next 60 days or so. We would greatly appreciate it if you occasionally link your readers to our site, especially as we start to roll out events in your area. Our first event in the field was providing about a dozen volunteers to support the NRA Annual Meeting Youth Day events.
Pew pew pew poll: Gun rights top gun control:
Exactly two years after President Obama’s bid for gun control following the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting died in Congress, a new poll has discovered a huge shift in public opinion to backing Second Amendment gun rights and away from controlling gun ownership.
The reason: Americans now believe having a gun is the best way to protect against crime, 63 percent to 30 percent.
Police doing their job. Friendly dog runs out and does friendly dog stuff. Cop shoots at friendly dog at “point blank range” and misses. Seriously, he should be fired for multiple reasons. And we don’t know the officers name because “journalism”.
I love this man so much.
Lars is leaving NRA Blog to take up the legal side of things. Best to you, sir.
Pretty dry but interesting:
A police officer says that he was denied treatment at walk in clinic because he was carrying a gun. And had guns pointed at him:
Several Mansfield Police Department officers told him to come out slowly with his hands up. More than one of them were pointing their firearm at him, he said.
Liggett said he was placed in handcuffs while police verified his identity as an auxiliary officer, which took only minutes. He was carrying his badge and ID in his wallet.
The FULCRUM’s increased diameter produces a barrel that is stiffer than our mid-weight barrels and has more surface area, both as a result of the larger diameter and the fluting. The increase in surface area produces better heat dissipation and a faster rate of cooling. The underlying increase in thermal mass also means FULCRUMs are less sensitive to fluctuations in temperature, which translates to more consistent shooting under all conditions.
The increase in diameter also pushes more mass towards the front of the FULCRUM barrel, which improves the harmonics and increases the overall stability and balance of the shooting platform. The extra mass decreases felt recoil, and its distribution increases the moment of inertia, which reduces angular acceleration for a smooth shot that helps you stay on target.
The preceding are all the reasons why standard heavy barrels shoot so well. The beauty of the FULCRUM is that you get all that performance from a barrel that weighs far less.
Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
