Consider the shotgun: traditional provider of meat for the pot, defender of hearth and home, and long regarded as the ultimate in anti-bad-guy ordnance. Having conducted a fair number of shotgun home-defense courses over the years, I’ve had the opportunity to see a lot of different people, with a lot of different levels of experience, handle a lot of different shotguns. However, a few similarities have emerged over time regarding people and their favorite scattergun. From the 58-year-old insurance adjuster to the 26-year-old police officer to the 33-year-old single mother, I’ve made the same observations time and time again. So with your kind indulgence, I’d like to look at a few of these items and the ways they can be addressed. After all, fixing things in training mode can help stave off catastrophe in reality mode.

- Pathetic NYPD Brass Attempt… by Glenn At New…
Citizens of New York City, beware!
NYPD brass are doing their best to avoid having to shell out the millions of dollars it will take to make sure that their officers are reasonably competent with their handguns, and are instead dictating policy that makes it harder for officers to shoot the handguns they are allowed to use as accurately as they otherwise might.
New York Police Department desk jockeys are banning officers from using the previously approved Kahr K9 9mm pistol double-action-only (DAO) as an off-duty carry gun.
They’re scapegoating the pistol for more than a dozen “accidental shootings” that are actually the result of poor officer training.
- Conservative Canadian Gover… by Glenn At New…
He also said owning a gun was a “right, and it’s a right that comes with responsibilities.”
The act would limit the powers of provincial chief firearms officers, make all firearm licences possession-and-acquisition (PAL) licences, make it easier for legal gun owners to transport restricted firearms around their home province, provide a grace period to renew expired gun licenses, make the gun safety course mandatory for new shooters, and crack down further on domestic abusers owning guns.
“These measures would streamline licensing and eliminate needless red tape for law-abiding gun owners,” Blaney said. “Those who have shown a pattern of violent behaviour should not be able to possess firearms. These are the people we should focus our gun control efforts on.”
In 2012, the Tories scrapped the controversial long gun registry.
- Darwin Award: Dumb Instruct… by Glenn At New…
A firearms instructor has died after he was shot by a nine-year-old girl when she fired an Uzi at a shooting range in the Arizona desert.
Mohave County sheriff’s officials said 39-year-old Charles Vacca, of Lake Havasu City, Arizona, died at the hospital on Monday after he was shot at the Last Stop outdoor shooting range.
Mohave County Sheriff Jim McCabe told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that Vacca was standing next to the girl when she pulled the trigger. The gun recoiled and it went over her head.
The paper reported that the girl had successfully fired the 9mm weapon several times in “single-shot” mode before Vacca changed the setting to “fully automatic” mode.

More than four years ago, while announcing his campaign for governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo stood in front of the Tweed Courthouse in downtown Manhattan and said Albany’s antics “could make Boss Tweed blush.”
New York had had enough corruption, he said, and he was going to put a stop to it. “Job 1 is going to be to clean up Albany,” he said, “and make the government work for the people.”
Mr. Cuomo became governor on that platform and recorded several impressive achievements, but he failed to perform Job 1. The state government remains as subservient to big money as ever, and Mr. Cuomo resisted and even shut down opportunities to fix it. Because he broke his most important promise, we have decided not to make an endorsement for the Democratic primary on Sept. 9.

- Thugs rough-up NYC Jewish c… by Glenn At New…
A gang of anti-Semitic thugs roughed up a Jewish man and his wife on the Upper East Side on Monday evening before fleeing in cars flying Palestinian flags, police sources told The Post.
Two cars and multiple motorcycles pulled up to the couple on East 63rd Street near Third Avenue just after 8 p.m., and the assailants began yelling “anti-Jewish statements,” the sources said.
One of the goons threw a water bottle that hit the wife, and the 27-year-old husband was punched in the side of his head when he came to her defense, according to law enforcement sources.
Police sources said the creeps then raced back to their waiting vehicles, some of which bore Palestinian flags, and took off.
- White NY Man, 32, is left w… by Glenn At New…
A West Point man was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries after he and a friend were attacked by a group of around 20 people in a Huddle House parking lot, police said, potentially as retaliation for Michael Brown’s killing.
Ralph Weems IV, who is white, was injured early Saturday but is now in fair condition at North Mississippi Medical Center, hospital spokeswoman Genie Causey said.
A relative, Bradley Barnes of Madison, told The Associated Press by telephone on Sunday that his brother-in-law was in a medically induced coma following brain surgery.
‘They’re going to try and wake him up tomorrow and see what damage was done,’ Barnes said, describing Weems as a 32-year-old former Marine who had served in Iraq.
- Where Open Carry Is Legal A… by Glenn At New…
Last week, Sarah wrote about how the Kroger supermarket chain was responding to Moms Demand Action’s petition to ban open carry in their stores. Kroger spokesman Keith Dailey said, “We know that our customers are passionate on both sides of this issue and we trust them to be responsible in our stores.”
While it’s from a pro-gun control organization, the Wall Street Journal published a good map from them showing where the open carrying of handguns is legal.
- Gunsite Academy : Welcome T… by Glenn At New…
“This is a fighting school, not a shooting school.”
Rangemaster John Hall set the tone as he welcomed us to the 250 Pistol class is that is the core of the “Gunsite experience.” The 19 students in the class paid close attention as Hall introduced us to the concepts that Jeff Cooper introduced in the Arizona desert for the first time 38 years before. Nineteen of us were taking part in a five-day class to learn how to fight with a pistol, using methods that have become the standard by which all other forms of handgun fighting are judged.
Our four instructors averaged roughly 25 years of experience. Hall, who was performing rangemaster duties, has an Army and police background, including time as a SWAT team leader and department rangemaster. Bob Whaley has retired from nearly three decades of police work, including 15 years in St. Louis SWAT. Sergeant Major Walt Wilkinson spent 30 years in the U.S. Army, include 26 years in Special Forces. Provost Chris Curry spent 22 years in the Marines.
The students themselves were an interesting mix.
