Like many Sheriffs throughout the country, El Paso County Sheriff is taking a stand against the proposed Colorado gun bills that are suppose to take effect later this year. One of the bills would limit magazine capacities to 15 rounds. To which Sheriff Maketa says he would ignore the ban and its enforcement. More details can be found at 9News.
The news was an outcome of a two-hour town meeting in Colorado Springs. It's nice to see that at least some elected officials have common sense and are in touch with their constituents. We will see if other Sheriffs are on board.
The Colorado governor is expected to sign the magazine capacity bill into law later this month. Folks that already own magazines that hold more than 15 rounds are grandfathered-in. Manufacturers like Colorado-based MAGPUL will now have to date their magazines much like they did when the Federal AWB went into effect back in 1994. I guess I'll have to buy my magazines out of state!

During the recent gun and ammo buying frenzy, I was on Cabela's website looking for any ammo. Keeping my fingers crossed, I searched for 9mm target rounds. Keep in mind these days finding 9mm or 5.56mm rounds are about as hard as finding the lost civilization of Atlantis. I was hopeful I could find something other than jacketed hollow points....

A Virginia Beach pizza company is offering a 15% discount for customers that come in carrying heaters or CCW permits. Check out the article in the LA Times.
Apparently it has increased the sales at the pizza parlor by several folds. Some bring in long guns other brought in pistols. I'd hate to be the stick-up guy that tries to rob that place.

The National Shooting Sport Foundation has lots of great video about shooting techniques and instruction. Keeping with excellent instruction is one about sighting in a rifle that most of us can do easily even as a noob shooter.
I've used this same technique sighting in my many bolt-action and semi-auto rifles. I do like the fact it shows bore sighting by literally looking down the bore of the rifle. It gets you on paper with no expensive tools or laser beams needed. Just a good set of eyes.

|Are you kidding me?!|
Cheaper than Dirt was just one of the first to kick off this nonsense back earlier this year when they started selling Magpul 30-rd magazines for almost $60, now they're up to about $80. Before DiFi and her misfits created the big AWB scare they were less than $20. A Boycott Cheaper than Dirt Facebook ensued and had more than 17,000 likes. I just hope that yahoos are not dumb enough to buy this overpriced crap. If they do they are just creating the demand that will keep the prices high for a long time. Just like an elephant, I don't forget.
