” Our first “Throwback Thursday” for 2015 is only a few years old, but in the spirit of creating a “bucket list” of things to do or see before you “kick the bucket,” we have brought back Jerry Lee’s compilation of handguns he believes all firearm enthusiasts should have at some time in his or her life.”

” Browning Hi Power
Posted by Jerry Lee
No list of important handguns is complete without the Hi Power. Today’s gun catalogs are full of “high-capacity nines” but this was the original. With its double-stack magazine holding 13 rounds plus one in the chamber, you can see where the name “Hi Power” originated. Considered to be John Browning’s last handgun design (with final touches by Dieudonne Saive of FN), the Hi Power is considered by some to be an improved 1911. It has been used by the militaries of more than 50 countries since 1935, and still serves many to this day. The grip fits some hands better than just about any handgun and as the design approaches its 80th anniversary, it is a fine example of a full-size 9 mm. “

I thought that today we would start with some well-armed women … Any complaints ? … I didn’t think so …
What’s better than a Pistol-Packin’ Mama ?
Not much … except perhaps a Full-Auto Female …
But nothing compares with Women Warriors …
And for our finale … how about a Sexy Sniper …

Colorado Shooting Competition Canceled In Wake Of New Gun Control Laws
” GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. – Organizers of the Rocky Mountain Western States Regional IDPA Championship, initially scheduled to take place July 4-6 in Montrose, Colorado, have announced that the match is being canceled in the wake of Colorado’s recently passed gun control laws.
An estimated 300-plus shooters from the neighboring states and across the country were expected to attend the three-day competitive shooting event. This is the second shooting competition to abandon the state after a recent announcement by firearms maker Ruger that it was moving the 2013 Ruger Rimfire Challenge World Championship out of Colorado . ”
” In the face of possible legislation to restrict and possibly ban firearms and magazines over a certain capacity, waves of panic buyers have stripped shelves to the paint, at both retail and online gun stores.
A combination of demand and gouging has caused prices for rifle magazines and rifles, parts and accessories to more than double, with some vendors selling goods at five times what the average rate was just a few weeks ago.
Many online companies are selling magazines faster than their systems can handle, accepting orders for stock they don’t have and running out of stock mid-transaction.
Brownells spokesman Jason Corpus had this to say.”
