Incredible Shot From Nearly 1.5 Miles

 

 

 

 

 

 

” A few days ago I took out the 338 Lapua and attempted the 2500 yard shot. So I placed the target at 2530 yards or 1.43 miles away, at that distance the bullet flight time is almost 4.5 seconds! Made a short video that I think you guys will enjoy.  
  I went out early in the morning to beat the mirage, luckly there was very little wind around 3-4 mph coming from the left, I dialed 2.6 mils Left. I had to dialed the maximum elevation my scope (Nightforce NXS 5.5-22×56 MIL/MIL) had at 27.4 mils then held over 2.5 mils on the reticle to get me to 29.9 mils. I really hope you guys enjoy the video, please comment or ask any questions you may have…….and let me know what you think! Thanks for watching! “

Pictured: Met Police Seize Arsenal Of Weapons Including Assault Rifles, Sawn-Off Shotguns And Uzis

Arsenal-of-weapons-seized-in-east-London-3423723

 

 

 

” The remarkable haul marks one of the biggest-ever firearm seizures in the force’s history, and was taken in by Waltham Forest Gangs Task Force.

  A deadly arsenal of weapons described as one of Britain’s biggest ever gun hauls has been seized from a suspected gang hideout.

  Assault rifles, sawn off shotguns, an Uzi and a Thompson machine gun were discovered on a raid by Scotland Yard’s anti-gang squad.

  Thirty firearms and ammunition were found this morning by the Waltham Forest Gangs Task Force in east London following in what cops describes as “an intelligence led operation”.

  It emerged today that criminals are using a legal loophole to import guns into Britain for use in street shootings and robberies.

  A legal loophole allows some weapons to be considered as “antiques” under the law.

  All handguns were banned in the UK in 1996 after the Dunblane school massacre.

  However, the anomaly revolves around section 58 of the 1968 Firearms Act, which gives an exemption to “antique” weapons if they are considered as “curiosities or ornaments.”

  Campaigners say the Act fails to define “antique” but leaves the matter to the police and courts to decide.”

Bloomberg’s $50 Million Anti-Gun Campaign Starts Off With A Video Trying To Scare You And Your Kids

 

 

 

 

” Michael Bloomberg has pledged to pour 50 million dollars into his new gun control advocacy group, Everytown. The goal is to create a grass roots network of concerned mothers, mayors and Hollywood celebrities that can work to persuade Congress as effectively as the pro-gun lobby.”

Haslam’s ‘Policy Maneuver’ Kills Tennessee’s Open-Carry Bill

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Last week the Tennessee Senate passed SB2424 by a landslide vote of 25-2 last week. The bill would allow Tennesseans to openly carry handguns without a state-issued permit.

  It’s reported the governor’s administration attached what was called a “$100,000 anchor” to the pending open-carry bill that’s stalled the legislation.

  The reason for the cost would cover the state’s vendor to modify the design of the handgun permit cards. They would remove the open-carry language from the layout of the card. State permits currently allows Tennesseans to either carry openly or concealed. It’s reported the state has already pretty much finalized it’s budget and ”shoehorning the extra expenditure into its ledger is unlikely.

  Haslam’s move goes against the apparent stance he took while campaigning for governor in 2010. Knoxnews.com reports:

“ The final days of that campaign were dominated by the furor created by candidate Haslam after he told the Tennessee Firearms Association that he would sign legislation into law to eliminate Tennessee’s requirements for carrying handguns in public.”

Target Shooting In America

 

 

 

Millions Of Shooters , Billions Of Dollars

 

 

 

    This report by the National Shooting Sports Foundation provides fascinating reading . The number of shooters as well as the money and time spent at the range boggles the mind and should give pause to those who think that gun enthusiasts are a group to be ignored and trampled upon .

 

 

 

Target Shooting 2

 

 

 

” Whether it’s religiously practiced at a range or shooting club each week or participated as an occasional weekend activity in the countryside with friends, millions of Americans go target shooting each year. In fact, more Americans target shoot each year than the number of people who live in the entire state of Florida or New York. Target shooters may be having fun afield with each shot at a clay pigeon or paper target, but with each outing, they are also part of an economic force at work. In fact, their activities generate $9.9 billion in spending each year through the purchase of shooting-specific products and services and create hundreds of thousands of jobs directly associated with the sale and manufacture of those goods and the provision of those services. As such, target shooting provides fun and enjoyment for millions of Americans, but ultimately benefits millions more through its positive economic impact.”

 

 

 

Just take a look at these numbers …

 

 

Target Shooters

 

 

 

” Target shooting comes in many forms. Participants shoot to test their skills and prepare for competition, hone their defensive abilities, test their marksmanship with new loads and optics or to simply have fun!Just like owning multiple tools to perform different jobs, many target shooters own more than one firearm, each with a particular use or purpose. With 65 percent of all target shooters, rifles are the most often used firearm. Handguns follow closely behind. Shotguns are used by 48 percent of all participants with muzzleloaders used by 18 percent of the shooting public. Although more target shooters use rifles, handgun users actually spend more days shooting, in part due to greater availability of indoor ranges in urban areas where more people live. Participation in target shooting by state roughly parallels each state’s population. Even in largely urban areas, people are keen to try their hand with firearms. Despite restrictions that can make target shooting activities difficult to enjoy, target shooting remains extremely popular and continues to grow everywhere.”

 

 

    Target shooting generates incredible amounts of revenue for businesses both firearm related and others as well as creating hundreds of thousands of jobs .

March The Second Biggest Month For NICS Background Checks

 

 

nics010311

 

 

 

 

” March was the third biggest month for firearm background check numbers in the National Instant Criminal Background Check systems history, according to numbers release by the FBI. That number changes when data is adjusted, Guns.com reports.

  According to the data, across the country 2,488,842 total background checks were performed  in March 2014, which is up by about 200,000 from one year ago and by about 400,000 from February.

  Additionally, March 2014 had three of the 10 highest number of checks in a single day, and the first two weeks of the month ranked in the top 10 for highest weeks for gun background checks. “

However, if the raw number is adjusted by subtracting out NICS purpose code permit checks used by several states such as Connecticut, Illinois and Utah for CCW permit application checks as well as checks on active CCW permit databases, it actually becomes the second highest March in NICS history, according to the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the industry’s lobby.

CNN’s Piers Morgan Signs Off With Final Blast At U.S. Gun Laws

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Piers Morgan wrapped his three-year CNN run tonight with (gasp!) a full hour of discussion about the missing plane. But in his four-minute final remarks, he couldn’t resist taking a parting shot at the NRA. “I assumed that after 70 people were shot in a movie theater, and then, just a few months later, 20 first-graders were murdered with an assault rifle in an elementary school, the absurd gun laws in this country would change,” he said. “But nothing has happened. The gun lobby in America, led by the NRA, has bullied this nation’s politicians into cowardly, supine silence. “

How The Civil Rights Movement Changed Black Gun Culture

 

 

 

” The subject of guns is a volatile one in the black community: a disproportionate number of black Americans are killed by firearms each year.

  But Nicholas Johnson, a law professor at Fordham University in New York City, says black Americans have a long, positive history with guns. Firearms, he says, helped black Americans escape slavery, defend their homes and fight for their freedom. It was only after the civil rights movement that the public attitude towards guns started to change.

  He explores the hidden relationship between African Americans and firearms in his book Negroes and the Gun: The Black Tradition of Arms.”

 

 

   Thanks to the BBC for bringing this to light . Along with the civil rights movement came the social programs aimed at aiding the black community , which in reality have done nothing but generate a culture of dependency on the government , a loss of self-esteem and a permanent democratic voting bloc .

Colorado Public School Takes Students On A Field Trip To The Shooting Range

 

Craver Middle School Gun Trip

 

 

” School officials in Pueblo County, Colorado are bucking the anti-gun trend and recently approved a field trip for middle school students to a local shooting range where they learned about gun safety and how to properly handle a firearm. The gun safety and marksman group Project Appleseed, an activity of The Revolutionary War Veterans Association, was brought in to instruct students, all of whom fired at the range with live ammunition. The trip was scheduled shortly after students learned about The Revolutionary War in their classrooms.

” We’ve never been allowed to bring actual real firearms into a school. Until this week. This is a very big deal. We had them touching fire arms, holding them and learning about how to handle them safely,” Appleseed Instructor Elizabeth Blackwood told KRDO.”

  Julia Tourianski believes that while one can argue about gun rights until they turn blue in the face there is only one true and undeniable point to be made: The right to bear arms is inherent in all human beings, BraveNewWorld reports.

“You are alive. You have an inherent right to stay alive. A gun is a tool. You have the right to wield it to preserve your life when under threat,” Tourianski says.”

To prove our point here are the 25 most brutal torture techniques ever devised. – See more at: http://govtslaves.info/25-brutal-torture-techniques-ever-devised/#sthash.XNdpULRH.dpuf

” The Smith & Wesson M&P15 Sport is a very popular AR15 that can be bought for less than $700. In the interest of creating a more affordable AR15, the engineers over at Smith & Wesson decided not to include a dust cover or forward assist in their M&P15 Sport model. But does it matter?

  This video compares the Smith & Wesson M&P15 Sport with the ATI Omni Hybrid. They are both .223 and 5.56 – but the ATI Omni Hybrid has a dust cover and forward assist.”

” It’s a building of dignity and honor, but what happened at the state capitol recently has law enforcement crying shame.

” Everybody in that building knew who we were,” said Wagoner county sheriff Bob Colbert, who, along with 40 other sheriffs from around the state, converged on the capitol as they do every year to meet and greet and lobby. Until…

One of the senators, who they wouldn’t tell us, complained because we were armed in the building,” he said.

  They were then given a choice, disarm or there’s the door.

So we all packed up and left,” he said. “

California Gun Shop Drops The Smart Gun After Furious Backlash

 

 

” A California shooting club that was “the only outlet in the country” selling the first smart gun is “facing a furious backlash from customers and gun rights supporters,” as reported by Michael S. Rosenwald in the Washington Post:

Attacks in online forums and social networks against the Oak Tree Gun Club have prompted the store to back away from any association with the Armatix iP1 smart gun…

The vitriol began almost immediately after The Washington Post reported that the Armatix iP1 smart gun was for sale at the pro shop. Electronic chips inside the gun communicate with a watchthat can be purchased with the gun, making it impossible to fire without the watch.

  The backlash “has apparently shaken Oak Tree, one of the largest gun stores and shooting ranges in California,” and the club’s owner has denied “ever offering the gun” and apologized for “any confusion.”

  According to the Post account, Armatix claims Oak Tree at first said they needed more smart guns for a TV report, but then the tone “quickly changed” and the TV spot was cancelled, after Oak Tree received phone calls from irate gun rights supporters.

  The somewhat murky situation was somewhat clarified by Oak Tree’s owner, in comments to Examiner.com’s David Codrea, to the effect that

Our facility does NOT carry the Armatix pistol, never has… The FFL [Federal Firearms Licensed] dealer on site has not ever merchandised or sold the firearm and does not intend to carry this firearm.”

A Slideshow From Wide Open Spaces

 

” Though all sorts of guns made their debut at the 2014 SHOT Show in Las Vegas back in January, of particular interest are five of the best new bolt action hunting rifles that were introduced before, during and after the show.

Presented in alphabetical order are what we consider the best new hunting rifles of the year.”

 

 

 

 

” Building on the popularity of these 10+1 capacity guns in 5.56mm, the new Mossberg MVP Series Varmint Bolt-Action Rifle is optimized for premier varmint and predator control. Its patent-pending drop-push bolt-action actually accepts AR-15 .223/5.56 NATO magazines, giving it a real oomph-factor. A 10-round magazine is included in the initial $600 price tag, and we can’t help but think about the customization we could do to this bad boy.”
