"Range Officers need to remember everybody is there to have fun."
Is that a true statement? Maybe, but I think "fun" is defined very differently for different levels of shooters. Some folks get their fun by just showing up and shooting, and others have fun by playing the game within the rules (sometimes pushing them as far as they can) and others have fun by shooting to the best of their ability, and winning.
For me, it's changed over the years, and it's something that makes me appreciate a range officer who just enforces the rules, per the rulebook. I think some people are under the impression that some rules shouldn't be enforced/don't need to be enforced at a club match, and I don't agree with that at all.
There's a new run of Triangle Tactical shirts going on right now at Teespring.com. I think this is the 4th time I've used Teespring, and I'm really excited about this newest run of shirts. They're available from today (7/4/2016) until 7/14/2016. If you want one, head over to Teespring.com to place your order.
I've been reading a bunch of headlines saying something to the effect of "California bans most handguns!". Yes, a package of really bad bills were passed and signed into law by the Governor in California, but this rhetoric that "most handguns" were banned isn't exactly factual.
The bills in question are SB880 and AB1663. Here's what they both say:
(4) A semiautomatic pistol that does not have a fixed magazine but has any one of the following:(A) A threaded barrel, capable of accepting a flash suppressor, forward handgrip, or silencer.(B) A second handgrip.(C) A shroud that is attached to, or partially or completely encircles, the barrel that allows the bearer to fire the weapon without burning the bearer’s hand, except a slide that encloses the barrel.(D) The capacity to accept a detachable magazine at some location outside of the pistol grip.
