    Second Amendment Sanctuaries: Rhetoric vs. Reality

    OR cave junction's volunteer camera watchers ~ id criminals by the way they look!

    Some times it just that simple. Other times it is not. What they do with the information is the key.. Every area has it known criminal element. They tend to have certain habits. A small minority of any population commit the majority of the crimes. So watching for them makes sense.

    There is no perfect "stance" for every one looking at or trying something new isn't bad/good or other wise on it's face. Depending on many factors one might or might not work for you. Modifying it might work for you. What works in competition might not work well other places/times. If you...

    Saugus HS, Santa Clarita shooting

    No indication or other wise. Just relating my experience with one young man and his ability to shoot real firearms only after using air soft. In his case it did translate very well.

    Retention Holster. What level do you guys use?

    Your right there is not many around in tree county. Now out west in prairie county like eastern Montana finding a place to 600 and further is fairly easy. I am heading out there next week with my 300WM for a mule deer hunt.
