Ben recently built his first AR-15 after shopping for a complete one for several months. We talk about the pro's and con's of building your own AR-15 vs. buying a cookie cutter rifle from the store.
I had a picture pop up on my personal Facebook newsfeed tonight about a public shooting range being constructed by Cleveland County, NC. Unfortunately both Bens, and my own google-fu is weak tonight, and I can't find any recent information on this anywhere. The most recent thing I could find was a county commissioners meeting from 2011 where they talked about the possibility of building a range. If you have any information on this, please let us know!
There was a recent Gun "Buyback" in Wilmington, NC. They paid $100 for rifles, pistols, and shotguns, and $200 for "Assault Weapons". They noted that one "assault weapon" was purchased, and after looking at the pictures (which are mostly rusty broken shotguns, and .25ACP crappy pistols) the "assault weapon" must have been the stripped out SKS without a bayonet or magazine...
The recall election for anti-gun politicians in CO is underway! Early voting started last week, and the official voting day is Tuesday, September 10, 2013. Let's hope that these jokers are out of a job come Wednesday morning. If so, this will send a great message to the other gun-grabbers that they will lose their job if they pass any more of this type of legislation.
PracticalTacticalPodcast.com is a new podcast. Casey has two episodes out as of right now, and I like they way he thinks. He made a great point about how competitive shooting is just about shooting skill, and tactical training is about tactics. They aren't the same, and both have their place.
Rock on Casey!
