my dear friends, the 5.56x45mm nato cartridges being expended at the 25 yard range is to provide and prepare for government agents, whether civilian or national guard, coming to our homes to try and take our guns, or suppress our speech, or inhibit or prevent our right of free association to fight the political oppression we see all around us.
the people at the ranges do not see the need to prepare for a 400 yard battlefield, and set battle. they see the coming threat on their doorstep, and for that, 25 yard shooting will do just fine.
so, mr. obama and various & assorted minions, be aware that your final few steps in the completion of your plans will be hotly contested. you may find force entry into our liberties far more difficult than you ever dreamed.
i see that, every day, at the 25 yard target standard. i see the evidence of that thinking on the ground, in the form of shooting practice for the day a lot of people see coming.
i hear it on the lips of my neighbors, ordinary farmers, workers, small business people, and ex-servicemen who fought in viet nam, in iraq and in afghanistan.
those final steps, obama & minions, will not be taken easily.
I think John is right and it makes perfect sense to me. I would warn, however, against the perceived ease of CQB. Government troops should be wary of the boy with the bolt action rifle and high powered scope hiding in the hills and behind the flora. As for me, I regularly shoot my AR-15 at a paper plate at 100 yards with iron sights. If I cannot put all or most of the rounds in a magazine on a plate at 100 yards, I need more practice. Of course, I always need excuses for more practice.
Say Uncle, citing an Army report on a new side arm:
“It’s kind of hard to beat the Smith and Wesson M&P right now,” said one industry insider from a competing company, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. “It is a polymer gun with high-capacity steel magazines. It has a positive safety and ambidextrous controls … they simply came out of the gate with the right gun.”
Chance agrees with this statement, and I sure do like my M&P .40 too. But I demur. Read the list at the Army Times article. Missing from the list is the best handgun to be purchased today, the Springfield Armory XDm (mine is a .45). I shoot both on a regular basis. The XDm is better.
David Codrea is a nice guy and doesn’t tell the anti-gun folks to go to hell like some of us would do. He recommends going to NK. Oh … err … nevermind, it might be hard to tell the difference.
Speaking of David, he reminds us that Obama is a liar (we knew that already), and that the Washington Post is still carrying water for Obama. I would remind everyone that he and Mike Vanderboegh are responsible for breaking Fast and Furious, so David is in a position to know the details of the WaPo report and how it deviates from the truth.
Kurt Hofmann takes on lawyer and professor Burton Newman. Bottom line up front. Governor Jay Nixon is a coward. He vetoed the proposed Missouri second amendment preservation act. It’s painfully obvious that Kurt knows more about the law than professor Newman, and Newman isn’t a coward like Nixon, just a communist. But Newman isn’t finished yet. If this isn’t clear enough for you, read Kurt’s piece. I would add that I’ve discussed this case before, and some of these laws are just posturing. Nullification laws have as much leg under them as states want them to have, no less, no more. Bottom line up front for my article. I want to see some federal agents arrested and thrown in with the general prison population for attempting to enforce federal firearms laws.
Finally, Mike Vanderboegh reports:
The old man, described by a family member as “wobbly” on his feet, had refused medical attention. The paramedics were called. They brought in the Park Forest police.
First they tased him, but that didn’t work. So they fired a shotgun, hitting him in the stomach with a bean-bag round. Wrana was struck with such force that he bled to death internally, according to the Cook County medical examiner.
“The Japanese military couldn’t get him at the age he was touchable, in a uniform in the war. It took 70 years later for the Park Forest police to do the job,” Wrana’s family attorney, Nicholas Grapsas, a former prosecutor, said in an interview with me Thursday.
Good grief. Here is the report. Barney Fifes with ammunition in their weapons. The Keystone Cops with automatic firearms. Idiot totalitarians with guns. Dangerous, hazardous to men, children and beasts. If we don’t see you again, mommy and daddy love you. Run, children, run for your very lives. Here comes a cop.
