Shownotes for this episode are pending. I didn't get the show recorded until late, so shownotes will be up mid-day on Monday 5/2.
Oklahoma CCW instructors have their panties in a wad about Constitutional Carry.
Harris Publications is shutting down. These folks are the publishers of a bunch of gun magazines (and a bunch of other magazines as well).
An 11 year old kid in Talladega, Alabama shot a home invader with a 9mm pistol. Interestingly, the kid was able to get the news media to run a positive story about a defensive shooting, which is something that never happens. Good on him, I'm glad he was able to defend himself.
I had some spring clamps in my trunk that saved my range trip on Sunday. I've had them in my trunk since the NC Sectional match last October, and when I lost my stapler, and the range stapler was empty, these suckers saved the day for holding my target to the target sticks. I wouldn't recommend using them exclusively for holding up your targets, but in a pinch, they did a pretty decent job.
The latest episode of the Freakonomics Radio podcast was amazing. This particular episode was about deliberate practice, and it's titled "How to be great at just about anything" and it's a must listen if you're interested in getting better at shooting.
