Lead Ammo Illegal?

I have been a member of Safari Club International for years.  We are a hunting club… and, as such, a political organization.  A ways back, the California government was toying with the idea of restricting hunting… I know… shocking, huh?!?

The Dangers of Self-Dentistry YouTube has been a major benefit to society.  It really has.  I cannot tell you the number of times I have been faced with an insurmountable problem and SGT Google directed me to an appropriate video where some odd individual felt the need to demonstrate how to solve said problem.

The 3rd Amendment

Camp San Luis Obispo Officers’ Club The fire crackled spritely as MAJ Taormina sipped his Jameson gingerly.  Cigar smoke still lingered about the high-backed chair and shadowed his furrowed brow. LTC Eeke paced back and forth between the fire and some dispatches that lay sprawled across an end table, a vape device clutched in his delicate hand. Speaking...

Miller v. Becerra Last week we were notified about a case filed in San Diego District Court named Miller v. Becerra.  The headlines from the gun advocacy groups read, “LAWSUIT CHALLENGES CALIFORNIA ASSAULT WEAPON LAW!!!” and “JUDGE BENITEZ TO HEAR CHALLENGE TO AR LAW!” YAY!!!!
