What’s mechanical offset and how do you deal with it? If you have an optic on a firearm, particularly a rifle, the line-of-sight through the scope is higher than the center of the bore, and that difference is what we call offset. In other words, when you take a shot the bullet is going to exit the barrel as much as several inches lower than the line of sight.

A break-in at a Polk County home put dozens of guns in the hands of criminals, deputies said Monday. One or more people broke a back window of a home in the Babson Park community and stole a suitcase full of handguns and a safe containing 14 rifles. "It's very concerning that all these guns are out on the street," said Carrie Horstman, a spokesperson for the sheriff's office. "The good news is the victim had a very good record-keeping system. He had serial numbers for every one of those guns."

Monday’s New York Times is reporting that GOP members of Congress are showing more interest in gun legislation in the wake of last month’s shooting of their colleague, Steve Scalise, by a far-left registered Democrat who volunteered last year for Sen. Bernie Sanders’ campaign and may have been acting out of pure partisan hatred.

According to the newspaper, “Conservative lawmakers, some of whom were nearly the victims of gun violence, have pressed to loosen gun controls…Most of the legislation has been in development for months, and in some cases, years.

A bill proposed by Sens. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Mike Crapo (R-Idaho) in the Senate, and Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) in the House, would regulate suppressors as over-the-counter firearms accessories rather than require that they be transferred through federal firearms licensees after a background check. The Silencers Helping Us Save Hearing (SHUSH) Act—S.1505 in the Senate and HR 3139 in the House—would remove suppressors from National Firearms Act requirements.

Rep. Val Demings’ (D-Fla.) recent op-ed (“ ‘Concealed Carry Reciprocity’ measure would gut public safety laws,” June 29) demonstrates she either hasn’t bothered to read the bills she criticizes or is willingly misrepresenting them for political reasons. Law-abiding Americans are increasingly purchasing firearms but only after undergoing an industry-supported FBI background check. She asserts, falsely or ignorantly, that criminals with domestic violence and violent criminals could carry a gun.

Attorneys for a man arrested in 2012 in St. Lucie County asked the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday to take up a challenge to the constitutionality of a Florida law that bars people from openly carrying firearms in public. The petition to the U.S. Supreme Court came slightly more than four months after the Florida Supreme Court, in a 4-2 decision, upheld the longstanding law. Monday's 35-page petition contends the law violates the Second Amendment and conflicts with U.S. Supreme Court rulings about gun rights.

Roseville police are investigating after a dustup between two dogs on Saturday morning ended in gunfire that left one of the dogs dead.
A 52-year-old man had been walking his dog, “a mastiff-type breed,” on a leash. As the two were walking, a “pit bull-type dog” and “some form of lab mix” in a backyard on the street escaped the backyard. Once free, the pit bull, “apparently without provocation,” attacked the mastiff.

The owner of the mastiff tried to physically separate the dogs, but was unable.

Then, “fearing for his dog’s life, the man pulled a handgun and shot the offending pit bull twice, killing the dog.

The dog owner is a licensed CPL holder and the gun used was registered to him.

Growing up, most of my friends were boys. Until I started working as a ski instructor, I had very few female friends. The girls and women with whom I was most aligned were always, like me, tomboys. Because I shared so many of the same interests, I have almost never felt uncomfortable around males. I was rarely excluded from any activity I wanted to pursue. Except for baseball. VeeGee Wynn, my only female cohort from age 8 through 11, agreed it was totally unfair that we were not going to be able to grow up and play in the major leagues.
 

NBC’s Fake News On Millennials And Guns

It seems easier and easier to find fake news these days, what with CNN and The New York Times being prime providers of such drivel on a nearly daily basis. Yet I was somewhat surprised to find completely bogus information right in the big, bold headline of a recent Nbcnews.com business feature. The story, headlined “Millennials Aren’t That Into Guns—Except in Video Games,” caught my eye because I frequently shoot with people in that 18- to 29-year-old age group. Since those acquaintances of mine are really “into guns”—as are my own children in that age group—I threw caution to the wind and decided to dig deeper to find out NBC’s take on the topic.

However, the finish hadn't been present in the company's lineup of handguns until the commercial market in the US demanded something different than Steyr's usual offerings.

Wisconsin high school students would learn how to handle a range of guns — from handguns to rifles — as an elective class under a state Assembly bill introduced last week. Rep. Ken Skowronski (R-Franklin) is the lead sponsor of the bill, which would allow schools to offer on-site gun education classes. Its purpose is to promote gun safety and to boost participation in trap shooting, he said.
