BRIEFING ROOM: Election Woes

When Donald Trump was elected the 45th President of the United States in 2016, social media was filled with posts to the effect of, “We’re safe for the next four years.” I cautioned then that historically, control of either the Senate or the House of Representatives—or both—often flips in the… Read More

BRIEFING ROOM: Mentoring Young Shooters

Whether your politics are conservative, liberal or centrist, one thing that almost everyone can agree on is the importance of the young people in our lives—children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews. With the left-leaning propaganda bombarding the public from the mainstream media and even in our schools, it is incumbent upon… Read More

BRIEFING ROOM: 3-D Printed Guns: Facts and Fantasies

Eighty years ago, in 1938, with a very bad economy and war looming on the horizon, America was introduced to a new hero—Superman. His tag line was Truth, Justice, and the American Way. Sadly in the present time, the mantra has seemed to become Lying to Americans. In August, Senator… Read More

BRIEFING ROOM: Open-Carry Win?

There is not a more far-left court in the land than the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals based out of San Francisco, California. For that reason it came as a shock when a three-judge panel, by a two-to-one margin, recently voted to affirm that the Second Amendment allows the open… Read More

BRIEFING ROOM Dangerous Trends

Lately I have seen some dangerous trends developing. The first is not maintaining control of your firearm, and the second is carrying a pistol with an empty chamber. Let’s address the latter first. Rule 1 states, “All guns are always loaded.” I like training on a “hot” range, where everyone’s… Read More

BRIEFING ROOM War on Law Enforcement

Since the beginning of 2018, at least 45 law enforcement officers across the U.S. have been killed while on duty. This works out to slightly less than two officers killed per week. While not on track to match the horrendous numbers of 2017 (129 officers killed) and 2016 (135 officers… Read More

BRIEFING ROOM: No More Compromises

Those who would spit on the Constitution and turn free men into slaves by disarming them are fond of saying they only want a “compromise” for “common-sense” gun control. The very definition of compromise is give and take. In the minds of gun-control fanatics, this mean we give and they… Read More

BRIEFING ROOM: The Gloves Are Off

The cry by liberal politicians has been, “We don’t want to take your guns. We only want ‘sensible’ gun regulations.” Lately, however, they have become more brazen and admitted they don’t want to take some guns, they want to take all guns. In March of this year, retired Supreme Court… Read More

BRIEFING ROOM: Backdoor Gun Control

Historically, people who would deprive us of our Second Amendment rights have been confined to the halls of Congress. Being largely unsuccessful on that front, they are trying to silence us in other ways. To be specific, this includes social media, retail outlets, and proposed new taxes. It’s no secret… Read More

Briefing Room: Firepower?

In the last few years, I’ve noticed many people seem to be overrunning their headlights on the range—shooting faster than they can make good hits, especially with pistols. I understand that in competition, time is a critical portion of the score. I get it. But while several “C” zones… Read More
