SAF Files Suit Against California Over Gun Rights

BELLEVUE, WA – The Second Amendment Foundation has filed a federal lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of California’s ban on so-called “assault weapons,” claiming that the statute is “vague and ambiguous” in its definition of assault weapons, leading to the arrest of a California man on two different occasions.

SAF is joined in the lawsuit, which was filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, by the CalGuns Foundation and Brendan John Richards, an honorably-discharged Marine and Iraq war veteran, who was arrested and jailed in May 2010 and August 2011. Read more

Simplified Sighting In

By Glen Wunderlich

With firearms deer season upon us, many hunters will be sighting in their guns. Since there’s not a lot of time to waste, and ammunition is quite expensive, I am providing some tips to get the job done as economically as possible.

As mentioned in previous writings, a six-inch kill zone will be the standard from any shooting position in the field for deer. Read more

Practice Shooting the Right Way

By Glen Wunderlich

Bad luck seems to haunt some pretty good deer hunters who may very well deserve the tag “hard-luck” hunters. Even avid hunters can possess all the new gear and tactics, yet, when the moment of truth arrives, they are unable to make a good shot. And, a shot that is not good is bad in so many ways.

In the bad-shot scenario, the hunter should consider not only his prey, but also himself, as being lucky, if his errant shot misses his target completely. The animal escapes unscathed, courtesy of the inaccurate shot, and the hunter has no tracking chores.

If, however, such a hunter places his shot beyond the fringe of the fatal zone, he must begin to track his wounded quarry and the stark reality is that not all deer are recovered. Read more

One-Shot Sight In

By Glen Wunderlich

Today, I had what appeared to be a challenge to say the least.  I had dropped my slug gun, a NEF Ultra Slug topped with a 1.2 x 5 Leupold Vari X III, a few days ago and noticed that the scope caps had been swung off line from center/top.  Therefore, I concluded that to be sure, I had to verify where my point of aim would actually hit.

To make matters difficult, I had only a total of five 12-gauge Federal Premium shells remaining.

Although, I had other ammo, I didn’t have enough of any one brand to sight in and hunt with unless I were to get lucky.  As it turned out, I never had to find out.

I had resigned myself to the distinct possibility of having to use my muzzleloader.  Not that it’s a bad option; on the contrary, it is a true 200 yard deer getter.  But, with my new higher-power Leupold Vari X III, 3.5 x 10, 50mm objective, I hadn’t shot it a lot.  In fact, I have only sighted it in at 50 yards.  Not good enough for serious longer range shooting.

You can see all the targets I had set out figuring I’d need to shoot a bit.

For now the muzzleloader can stay at home.  So can all the partial boxes of ammo.  Yep, one shot!

Carrying a Gun Across State Lines

This from Fox News and John Lott after the House passed national reciprosity for concealed carry:

For decades, treating licenses for guns like those  for cars was something that gun control advocates wanted.

In his 2000 presidential campaign, Al  Gore promised: “We require a license to drive a car in this nation in order  to keep unsafe drivers off the road. As president, I will fight for a national  requirement that every state issue photo licenses [for handgun buyers]. We  should require a license to own a handgun so people who shouldn’t have them,  can’t get them.”
