Nice timing the shots to the music at the end. Got a chuckle out of that.

RE: OCW Testing .308
Ive always wanted to do a prairie dog hunt, man that looks like fun. Is there anything out there like that around the same time orkan? Its about a 17 hr poke for me to get there, may as well soak up some local stuff & make a week of it.
West of here a few hours you can find prairie dogs. Right after our class is the perfect time of year to do it as well. Lots of lodges and what not that offer prairie dog shoots in western south dakota.
Ooo might have to bring some extra 6.5 ammo.... Orkan how many do you suggest I bring over and above the class requirements if we want to inflict some carnage on p dogs 2 hrs west?
RE: Good Cop/Bad Cop
Hey Hypo still waiting on Peel's Principles.
As far as my experience with LE. About 17 years ago I had a red corvette and I got a speeding ticket for 72 in a 55 and I literally had the cruise set on 55. I was a little steamed about that but got over it.
Just recently I was heading over to my local gun shop and I was looking at the GPS on my phone while driving and ran a yellow/red light. Got pulled over. I provided both by DL and my carry to the officer. He asked me if I was carrying and I said of course. He called in another unit and asked me to keep my hands where he could see them. I put them on the door window sill. He said that wasn't necessary and the steering wheel would be just fine. He called another unit in to check the validity of the Carry Lic.. Meanwhile were talked about where what I shoot and what kind of db reduction I was expecting from the suppressor I was getting. Everything checked out fine and at the end the cop asked, "you know why I stopped you don't you?" I said yes it was my fault and that I got turned around and I was looking at my GPS. I had no intention of running the light. He let me go with a, "don't do it again."
I treat cops with respect and I've been treated well in return, in general. I've never been in a high profile situation where DA's and defense attorneys were involved.
I recently heard about an insurance policy from a handgun shooting instructor that covers legal costs in the event you shoot someone in self defense. He said that most policies require that you pa\pay the company back for legal expenses they cover if you are found guilty of a reduced crime somehow but there was a company out there that didn't require it. He it wasn't through NRA and said it cost about $12-15/mo. Might need to track that company down. It might help if I run into that Bad Apple.
Regardless With Cops, I treat them the way I'd like to be treated if I were holding the badge, bracelets and a gun and had a tough job to do..... With Respect...
RE: OCW Testing .308
Cans are nice for the class, but you don’t have to have one. Just don’t bring a brake or you will have to go off by yourself on the hill to shoot.
HEY HEY HEY NOW these are not like the older Barrett brakes that come back at an angle. I've been at the range when one of those goes off. Sux being next to those guys.
These are Thunder Beast brakes that go off to the side. Besides I don't think i'm brining the 300 Norma to the class. Probably just the 6.5CM which is just a light puff. Should be a distraction to real shooters. :)
On a hill by myself..... nice.
RE: FBI database for gun buyers missing millions of records
James L Turgal, Jr is the head of the IT department for the FBI based on some research I did. The buck should stop with the head of the department. Don't know if we accomplish anything if he and the underlings responsible get early retirement and still get their full pension.
