By GabbyI'm not sure how many of you are aware of this, but Miss Janna Reeves is a collector of all things miniature and gun related. I am based at the Noveske Shooting Team Playhouse for the weekend and every time I turn around I find more goodies that have a barrel and trigger, but nowhere to put ammo! It's like a fun little treasure hunt to see how many items in this house are gun shaped, but not actually guns.
I've been trying to think of a way that y'all could enjoy this hunt with me, and then a light bulb went off...
Today I will start a contest!
By GabbyPart of the interesting thing about 3 Gun, is that it's all about decisions. Some are made on the fly, others are made when selecting gear, but each one comes with trade-offs. When choosing a shotgun loading method, you can go with weak hand, strong hand, load one at a time, load more. The list goes on and on.
By Gabby for Gun NutsI'm sure I shared with you guys that at the end of last summer I met my ideal match; Lets call him "Big J". He's a dream boat and after many years of the single-life I feel incredibly lucky and blessed. One of our many shared interests is food. He loves to cook and we spend a lot of time in the kitchen together. Since he's a meat and potatoes kind of guy we often have big meals that include a protein and a startch, a combination that had formerly been a rarity in my life.*
By Gabby For Gun NutsBy now everyone has heard of former Mayor Bloomberg’s latest project “Everytown for Gun Safety”. It’s no surprise that Everytown’s launch occurred on the same day as the opening of the 2014 NRA Annual Meetings, if for no other reason than it gave Everytowners a single location and group of people to focus their opening move. It was especially necessary to have something like NRAAM for Everytowners to attack since, from my research, they have very little legitimate arguments to unite them. I was willing to give this new group the benefit of the doubt. I could have overlooked the Bloomberg backing if the group actually did what they said and spread the word about “gun safety”. However, the website behind the name lived up to none of it’s promises. In fact, I found that the website of “Everytown for Gun Safety” offers nothing but scare tactics and empty statements.
By Gabby For Gun NutsIn many shooting competitions when you see a small shooting box demarkation on the ground you know, this is the spot from which I will shoot. These boxes are usually about two feet by two feet. Shooting from anywhere outside this box is a really bad idea. But in 3 gun this is not exactly the case. Shooting boxes are often huge and they give the shooter a lot of freedom. As I began learning about 3 gun and attempting to combine running, shooting and thinking, this freedom began to confuse the heck out of me.
By DanaAbout two weeks ago I headed to the Second Annual Concealed Carry Fashion Show with my friends Amy and Stephanie, and we had a great time! For those of you who may not know, Trish Culter, the pistol permit clerk in Columbia County, New York, came up with the fantastic idea to hold a concealed carry fashion show to help educate and train women how to carry firearms safely.
This year the fashion show was held at Birch Hill in Schodack, NY which was a much better setting for a fashion show and was able to accommodate a larger crowd than last year. I think they said 450 people attended this year which is fantastic. We arrived when the doors opened at 3pm and, after checking in, immediately went into the main room. And boy did it look amazing!
By Gabby For Gun NutsWhen a tragedy occurs, it is human nature to attempt to reason our way through it. We have all sorts of questions, and everyone of them is valid and reasonable to the mind of their creator. Yet, when I asked, last week, that we assess how the perpetrator of the Overlandpark, KS shootings procured his guns, the response was a virtual sock stuffed in my mouth.
By Gabby For Gun NutsI’ve just returned from another visit to New York City. I was there to celebrate with my family, the holiday of Passover, the redemption of the Hebrews from slavery in ancient Egypt. The night before we were to begin the festivities, breaking news came over the air waves. Jews had been targeted outside Kansas City. Many questions can now be raised about the man who perpetrated these crimes; Since he had been previously indicted on weapons charges, in 1987, how did he get the guns used in these crimes? As a known white supremacist in the area, why was no one able to prepare for and stop the suspect, prior to his attacks. But as we watched the details unfold, these were not my questions.
By Gabby For Gun Nuts"Ladies first," is no longer a term that carries any meaning. Doors are not heald open anymore and checks are split on dates. One could say that these were signs of the women's liberation movement winning the equality battle, but that's only if we make the mistake of equating genteel behavior with inequality. It's the fault of both parties involved. Men should be holding themselves to a minimum standard of gentlemanly behavior. Women should demand the treatment due to a lady...As long as she acts like a lady.
