For all you 1911 buffs out there. The CMP just received 8,000 from the Army. It will be at least 60 days before they can start opening crates and looking at them. But I’d expect the order forms to be available soon after that. I’m going to try and get my one for the year and call it good. But to have an official issued one in my safe will be cool.

It's a complete new process under a separate CMP entity, and its a bit involved.  Look at the CMP website for news and links.

Start jumping

Out

Looks like you can now carry to and from base at Creech/Nellis per the ABW/CC. The letter was posted on the fb page today.  


Anyone with experience and/or recommendations on something like the console vault?

What is this, some sort of super secure center console for the car for storing stuff i.e. firearms, cash, Hope Diamond, booze, porn, etc...????

Retiree ID has been good enough to satisfy both the Club Membership and Marksmanship Activity requirements for the standard CMP membership and purchasing rifles.

Anyone have thoughts on pistol optics?  I've played around with them but never owned one.  Now considering a G34 Gen5 MOS purchase (w/ optic)... and I'm curious how rugged a pistol optic would be over time.  Do they get loose after so many rounds?  Hold zero indefinitely?

Getting loose would be more a function of the mount rather than the optic, in most cases.  As for zero, it depends on the model.  Battery powered RMRs have to be removed to replace the battery, so they would need to be re-zeroed then.  Others, like the DeltaPoint Pro have top-loading batteries. 

I can't comment too much on longevity, but it seems like the RMRs and DeltaPoint Pros last a good while, from what I hear.

So in addition to being unable to remember where I put that opened Ensure, I find myself unable to find where JBSA allows personal conveyance of a firearm as Nellis just did.

I could've sworn I read that JBSA, being in Texas and all, treated folks like grown-ups.

Big-a@@ sign going through the gate said "Verboten!"  Google-fu shows same.

 

Help/link to sanity?

ABC alleging POTUS may ban bump stocks.



Possibly. I prefer the glass is half full approach. If you read the memo you’ll see that he told the DOJ to keep doing what they’re doing (ATF rulemaking process) to determine if bump stocks should be classified differently.

JBSA does not and will not have concealed carry due to being a Joint/Army installation.

The Executive doesn't create law.

Neither does the Attorney General.

Interesting choice by Dick's Sporting Goods today (http://pressroom.dicks.com/press-information/media-statements.aspx?camp=sns::20180227).  Most of the headlines are focusing on the company's decision to stop selling AR-15s, along with their encouraging an AWB.  Not much to see here, as it's totally up to them what they choose to sell.

More interesting to me is their choice to limit sales of firearms to persons 21 and up.  I'm no lawyer, but I thought that the CRA limited a business's ability to deny service based on protected traits.  In many states, age has been added to that list of protected traits.  Obviously, this wouldn't apply to something limited by law (like alcohol sales age, or existing laws on gun sales), but if someone is legally of age to buy a rifle, can a business legally discriminate based on age and deny the sale?

Edit to add, the average age for mass shooters is 34, with the preponderance being white males.  Just imagine if their discrimination criteria was "we won't sell guns to whites, males, or people between 30 and 39."

Dick's pulled a similar stunt after Sandy Hook.  

http://www.guns.com/2012/12/27/dicks-cancels-troy-carbine-pre-orders-troy-customers-irate/

Then undid it.

That's some serious conviction right there.  They didn't sell them for a whole 9 months.

Fuck em.
