Forest, MS range closed
Precision Shooting Center, LLC, Forest, MS, (Formerly Sherman Hill) has closed due to low demand. It will reopen if and when the demand justifies it. The facility also has a camping area, stocked fishing pond and 18 training stations in shaded adjacent woods. For the present, they will consider rental or lease requests from companies and organizations on a long-term basis that would justify reactivating the range insurance. Contact Clyde H. Morgan, Owner, at MorganOutdoors@aol.com.

“95 percent of your murders – murderers and murder victims fit one M.O. You can just take the description, Xerox it, and pass it out to all the cops… They are male, minorities, 16 to 25. That’s true in New York. That’s true in virtually every city… And the way you get the guns out of the kids’ hands is to throw them up against the wall and frisk them.” — Michael Bloomberg
But according to FBI data, among murderers whose race we knew, almost 44% were white. Just over 28% were between 13 and 25 years of age, of which about 35% were white. So, including both sexes, only about 65% of 28% were young minorities. That’s less than 18%, not the 95% claimed. The difference, 77%, is a pretty big lie. One wonders why he would get any black votes.
We also remember that Mr. Bloomberg once blamed banks making loans to black Americans as the cause of the 2008 financial crash.
At least seven Mississippi legislators are supporting Bloomberg. No word yet on Klan support.
In Mississippi, the prosecution can no longer argue that simply carrying a firearm for protection was indicia of looking for a fight. Back in 2016 the Mississippi Supreme Court abolished “pre-arming” jury instructions; that is, instructions to the jury that “one cannot arm himself in advance when he is not in any physical danger, go forth and provoke a confrontation or difficulty with to hide behind a smoke screen of self-defense.”
Trial juries must consider all evidence in the case.
Is it true that the Founding Fathers who wrote the Second Amendment never imagined the possibility that Americans might own firearms with a capacity greater than 10 rounds? Nope.
FYI, ATF has been copying many dealers’ records for years/decades now.
Also ATF: Register all guns.
A California home invasion suspect posing as sheriff’s deputy was fatally shot by a home owner after the crook and his accomplices broke into a house. LEOs, have a uniformed officer knock, wait for answer (residents, don’t open the door yet), show ID and warrant, THEN enter. Don’t just go busting in yelling “police.”
Don’t be That Girl
I was compelled to share this post from an unidentified firearms instructor:
“Had a woman in class yesterday who is getting ready for her husband to get out of jail next month. He’s doing 99 days for attempting to murder her in front of their daughter. She moved halfway across the country to try and hide from him but she knows he’s going to come find her. I cannot begin to imagine. They have every possible plan in place but this is her last resort, the one thing she didn’t want to have to learn. When she got the call that he was being released she asked what they recommended her do next and they literally told her to start planning her funeral.” (H/T: Robyn Sandoval)
My advice: Plan to arrange for HIS funeral.

In the past decade, no fewer than 11 of South Carolina’s 46 counties have seen their sheriffs accused of breaking laws — nearly one in four.
Steven Bradley Simon, 47, the former assistant police chief in Chandler, Oklahoma, pleaded guilty in federal court this week to two counts of illegal possession of firearm “silencers” without serial numbers and that were not registered with the National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record. The silencers were discovered in Sept. of 2019 when Simon allegedly choked his wife and responding officers searched his house.
Simon faces up to 20 years in prison and $500,000 in fines at sentencing in about 90 days.

Assume This Not That, If You Want To Live, by John Connor
Universal’s “The Hunt” movie, a Blumhouse Productions disgusting thriller and so-called satire including a storyline about 12 “deplorables” who wake up in a field and begin to be hunted for sport by elitists, was to be released last September 27, but was pulled in the wake of the mass shootings in El Paso, Dayton, and Gilroy. Now we learn that it’s scheduled for release next month. Still not worth seeing.

The US Air Force has updated its dress code policy to allow Sikhs and Muslims to receive a religious accommodation to wear “neat and conservative” turbans, beards, unshorn hair and hijabs.

FN America was awarded a $119,216,309 firm-fixed-price contract by the US DoD for a mix of two 5.56 NATO-caliber weapons — the M4 Carbine, NSN: 1005-01-382-0973, and M4A1 Carbine, NSN: 1005-01-382-0953. The contract, awarded by Picatinny Arsenal, requires that the rifles must be manufactured exclusively within the United States or its territories.

Short answer: XTP. FWIW, today’s premium .380 self defense rounds are more effective than the 9mm used to be.
Mr. Connor, on gun ranges (humor)
New “Amazon” site for gun guys.
Wilson Combat’s 300 HAM’R cartridge has been accepted/standardized by SAAMI (.pdf document).
The 10×100 BWA cartridge by Blackwater Ammunition is designed to be a long-range precision shooting cartridge that outperforms the .50 BMG in range and trajectory departments while remaining within the dimensions of .50 BMG cartridge. It is based on a .50 BMG case which has been necked down to 408 caliber and “Ackley” improved, resulting in 20% more case capacity than the .50. The case is a patented lightweight two-piece machined aluminum alloy design and is loaded with a solid monolithic 420 grain Carobronze alloy machined bullet at 3,500 fps and 11,425 fpe. BWA notes that these bullets remain supersonic to up to 2.7 kilometers (1.68 miles) and drop less than half as much as the .50 BMG at any distance.
Speer’s new CarryGun line of Gold Dot ammo specifically created for optimal performance in compact and subcompact handguns is designed to achieve better results on the FBI protocol test with Speer’s Gold Dot G2 bullet. The G2, previously only available to law enforcement, has an elastomer-filled shallow cavity in the nose of the bullet in lieu of a traditional hollow point, for better performance even through barriers like wood and steel. Speer says the barrier performance is “exceptional.”
- Initial offerings include 9mmP, 135-grain; .40 S&W, 165-grain, and; .45 ACP +P, 200-grain.
- Around $30 per 20 rounds.
