Now that is positive news to finally come out of Kommiefornia. Well, the shoot is in Nevada, but it is getting news and good reviews in Kommieland. woot.gif

I live in California, and to be honest, I am very surprised that aired. Every single time I've seen a gun issue on TV here, it is anti-gun. This is the first time I've seen one that is not, and with machineguns yet!

Let's hope it is the first of many, especially the part about "More guns, less crime!"

This topic came up on other boards prior to the shoot. I was completely against this idea of a newscrew filming the shoot. Mainly for the reason as Whiskey Brother pointed out having lived in CA for a good chunk of my life and having observed the antigun atmosphere. It was hard to believe a positive portrayl would come from any newscres. Quite honestly I am surprised and pleased it turned out well. The video was show at SAR very close to the tables of Gordon, Murrary, Don, Doug and Mike so it was hard for me to miss. PhilOhio I guarantee if Fienstein saw this she would not sleep well, too bad she risks the lives of everyone with her antigun agenda.

Seein' as how Fienstien lives in San Franscisco, do you suppose she got rid of her gun because they are now banned there? I'm thinking not, since she considers herself an "Elite", and therefore not subject to the same gun control laws she foists on the rest of us "unwashed" masses...

I loved the video. I felt a sense of empowerment just watching. Wished I had one of those flame throwers. I could target practice on snowmen this winter!

This shoot is put on by Mustang Range. They do it twice a year, along with teaching MG operations. I was there when the reporter was doing her thing. We talked very briefly and she said she was having a ball. She shot all kinds of weapons and enjoyed them a bunch. I'm totally surprised that LA TV gave it such a positive slant.
Mustange Range is mustangrange.com They have a video you might like called: "Mustang Range: The Movie" Lots of guns, flame throwers, explosions, miniguns, Thompsons, Browning 1919A4s, night fire, etc. it's 1.4 hours of live firing. woot.gif

I've seen that look that the reporter had before. A few years ago, my new neighbor let me know that not only was he a Democrat, but he was adamantly anti-gun. He said that guns were invented for the sole purpose of killing, and that's the only purpose they existed for.

I told him that he was wrong, the electric chair is an example of something made for killing, because you don't see people buying and using electric chairs for recreation. Most of the ammo made and sold in the US today will never be fired in anger or hurt/kill/maim anyone, because it will be shot off recreationally.

After some needling on my part, I finally got him to go to the range with me. I figured what the hell and let him shoot my Thompson as the first gun he had ever shot.

After first a look of scepticism on his face, a transformation overcame him halfway thru the magazine. When all 30 shots had gone down range he was actually grinning and let me know how fun that was. He soon thereafter bought his own guns, a 10/22 at first, but he's moved on to handguns and he even picked up a used SKS from somewhere.... cool.gif

I think a lot of so called "Anto-gunners" probably would not be if they would just shut up and go shoot something...

P.S. That is a very positive story about Nevada, Arthur. Too bad the weirdos in Kommifornia probably won't learn a thing by it though! soapbox.gif

Walter, welcome back. The calanders are still in the works. Sorry but with work and a couple of models not wanting to do it now, it has put me behind. But I am still working on it.

Hello to all again! I have been very well and very busy. I just got 'puterized (HP Pavillion and a nice 21" LCD flat screen) again. cool.gif woot.gif I'll try to be a little more regular- no pun, necessarily, intended!!! laugh.gif Things really do move quickly in the world of firearms-Tracie Hill leaving the TCA (starting another organization) and San Fran residents about to give up all their guns!!! Well no surprise concerning San Fran, really. Let's just hope the disease of apathy and and the tyranny of elitist snobs, who know nothing of freedom and human rights, does not prevail. soapbox.gif

All the best, Walter
