Often times, when writing about gun rights, I have stated that it is not a Democrat or Republican issue. And while that may be true when speaking about the voting populace, the everyday Joe, it does not seem to be the case in government. For weeks now, all I have seen are headlines of gun control legislation passing this committee or that, a state legislature here or there and always down party lines. While there are exceptions, the voting record makes it clear. The Democratic Party is no friend of the Second Amendment.
Target panic is more than a problem it’s a disease. It can strike anytime, anywhere and anyone. If you haven’t been bit the target panic bug yet, your time is coming. Perhaps that last statement is a bit of an overstatement, but you get the idea of the seriousness. The good news is target panic is not only curable it’s preventable.
Who says Congress isn’t efficient? It has taken Congress less than 90 days to capitalize on the tragedy in Connecticut. In case you are not fully following me, members of the Senate Judiciary Committee cast the first votes on measures backed by Obama to tighten gun control laws.
I understand that most of the people reading this (like me) do not have the buying power to own a firearm featured in a premier auction such as James Julia’s Outstanding March Firearms Auction, but that does not mean you cannot have fun fantasizing, window shopping or just looking at a piece of history.
Turkeys are bowhunting’s ultimate challenge. In fact, I have had better luck shooting pheasant out of the air with my bow than I have turkeys on the ground. That can be contributed to my turkey jinx more than anything, but just because Tommy Three Toes continually vexes me does not mean I won’t be out this Spring looking to sink an arrow in his side.
Given the rate products are flying off the shelves at Cheaper Than Dirt! and elsewhere around the country, it’s not worth being too picky in deciding which products deserve flavor of the week treatment, so I am not going to even try. I have already played with a whole goodie bag full of new offerings this year and will roll out a handful of new products each week, so enjoy and keep checking back!
In April 1995 the United States Olympic Committee chartered USA Shooting, a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, as the National Governing Body for the sport of shooting. The organization implements and sanctions events at the local, state, regional and national levels. It also manages programs for developing shooting athletes from grassroots to Olympic medals.
It does not matter where in the country you live. If your state does not offer concealed carry, you need to get involved. If your state does support your right to self defense and concealed carry, you need to get involved. There is strength in numbers and we need to all come together. The Second Amendment Foundation is leading the way, but we cannot passively sit back and let the other guy do all of the work. The following is the statement from the Second Amendment Foundation.
I just finished listening to the latest congressional committee hearing regarding SH-216—Sen. Feinstein’s latest attempt to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. I am struck by the blindness exhibited by the anti-gun members of the committee and those testifying.
No tactics were involved the last time I harvested a coyote. In fact, I became excited when I first glimpsed hair moving through the brush thinking it was a giant Illinois buck. I slowly stood up and checked my mechanical release.

I doubt anyone ever confused refletching with rocket science, but if they did, it must have been after one crazy night. Fletching your arrows is not only easy, it can be downright simple.
I am a firm supporter of our troops. That includes returning veterans, wounded or not, and the troops deployed. I have given to, or worked with, many nonprofits.
The Second Amendment Foundation is not a Johnny Come Lately organization jumping on the gun control bandwagon. In fact, SAF is the nation’s oldest, and largest, nonprofit 501(c)(3) foundation dedicated to research, publishing, education and legal defense of gun rights.
I have a wife who works in the firearms industry. To simply say she knows guns would not only be an understatement, it would be cause to look for cover.
Summer is just around the corner. As soon as the turkey woods start to cool, and Tommy Three Toes loses interest in the ladies, the weather should just be getting ripe for bowfishing. Never tried it before? Who cares? You get to shoot fish!
If a few lawmakers in Colorado get their way, we could be forced to find out. In their zeal to jump on the anti-gun agenda, lawmakers in Colorado have proposed banning the sale or manufacture of high-capacity magazines. The law would go well beyond Colorado’s borders by banning the manufacture of products to be sold out-of-state.
