Threat Management Under Stress For Responsible Armed Citizens

San Antonio, Texas 24-25 May 2014

 



Basic firing first aid
Guns Magazine
Guns are innately dangerous tools. Were we completely honest with ourselves, this is part of the allure. The thrill of harnessing and controlling power is a primal component of the human psyche. It is that same seductive appeal that drives us to race cars, parachute out of airplanes, jump school buses with motorcycles and batter ourselves senseless in the guise of football. To taste a little danger and emerge unscathed is to feed that adrenaline addiction lurking within us all.

Pennsylvania sheriff refuses to disclose names of firearms permit holders, finds community support
Guns
Sheriff Carl Nace is defending himself against a lawsuit by county auditors seeking personal information about concealed carry holders within his jurisdiction of Perry County, Pennsylvania. State law holds that all information for a license to carry a firearm is confidential and free from public release. The county auditors, however, maintain they are exempt from this, and they want the names and addresses of local permit holders to crosscheck and verify permits issued and money paid with the individual to whom the records indicate the permit was issued.

Lessons learned in turkey hunting
By John McAdams
As promised in my previous article about my first turkey hunt, I'm discussing some of the lessons I learned while turkey hunting. I had a great time, and I got a nice turkey to show for it. However, the hunt was not perfect and there are always things that I can improve for the next trip. It always pays to sit down after each hunt and determine what you did well, and what you can do better for the future. With any luck, I'll get another chance to put some of these turkey hunting lessons learned to use next year.

Mapping technology for hunters: How to plan your next DIY hunt
Petersen's Hunting
Gordy Krahn has hunted prairie grouse, pheasants, waterfowl and coyotes on the Fort Pierre National Grasslands and turkeys in the Black Hills in South Dakota for more than two decades. His tattered U.S. Forest Service maps, with nearly indecipherable notes scribbled in the margins, are testament to the hours Krahn has spent logged separating the wheat from the chaff—public from private land holdings, honey holes from gar holes.

Freakonomics and gun 'buybacks'
AmmoLand
"Buybacks", which Dean Weingarten (a former peace officer and firearms safety instructor), prefers to describe as “turn in events”, are on the decline. Much of the reason for this decline is the increase in private buyers that show up at these events, money in hand, asserting their rights, and spoiling the message of “guns are bad and should be turned in to the police”. The only places where “buybacks” are flourishing are those states that have effectively banned private sales of firearms at such events, such as New Jersey and California.

Gun control advocates push to take firearms from those accused of threatening violence
Fox News
Domestic abusers are not allowed to have guns. But gun control advocates want to expand that federal law to include those who merely have been accused of threatening violence — by prohibiting those under a temporary restraining order from having firearms. Second Amendment supporters say these bills are unconstitutional because they violate the right to due process. But they may be gaining traction.

The Blaze
Carey McWilliams found himself in the national spotlight when he became the first totally blind person in the U.S. to obtain a concealed-carry permit in 2001.

Cox of the NRA's institute for legislative action thanked legislators and Gov.

How to zero your AR-15 rifle
AmmoLand
Bullet trajectory is almost as simple as dropping a brick, except the bullet flies forward where a brick just drops towards the ground. When you fire a bullet, there is no magical force that helps it defeat gravity. In fact, if you fire a bullet from your AR type rifle, perfectly parallel to the ground, the bullet you fire will end up hitting the ground at just about the same time as a bullet you let fall from your hand straight down.
