A.C.T.S. Shooting Gear Review

One of our editors used this AK47 and VTAC Sling, with Eagle / SKD Universal Chest Rig with Benchmade 155 SBK-ADC knife and S&W M&P .45acp in one of the four M4 / AK magazine pouches. First Aid supplies in the S.O.Tech BLoCKS Medical Pouch. It worked well, stayed in place through a full day of action shooting; crawling through car windows, jumping in and out of vehicles, crawling on the ground and running

This is the gear we used at the Tucson, Arizona American Confederation of Tactical Shooters (A.C.T.S.) monthly match at Pima Pistol Club. This is a Eagle Industries / SKD Universal cheat rig with an S.O.Tech Battle Load Carry System (BLoCS) Small Zippered Medical Pouch and an Army surplus magazine pouch (Desert camo). We shot an AK47 and an S&W M&P 45 (dark earth). The chest rig held three 30 round AK47 magazines (it can hold 8 max) and two pistol magazines (four pistol mags max). Attached on the shooters left (right in photo) is the S.O. Tech BLoCKS Zippered Medical Pouch with a tourniquet and emergency bandage. On the shooters right (left in pic) is an Army surplus magazine pouch (Desert camo) with a Benchmade 155 SBK under half of it (behind pistol in pic)

National Park CCW carry on hold

Click here for the whole story:
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/29781541


A few of my favorite parts of this one..

Paul Helmke, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, one of two groups that sued to block the rule, called the judge's ruling a victory for the people.

"We're happy that this headlong rush to push more guns into more places has been slowed," he said.


Headlong rush.. to push guns Rolling Eyes

That's not emotional language right? They must be correct in their position if they can depend on such logic


Bryan Faehner, associate director of the National Parks Conservation Association, which also brought suit, said he was extremely pleased.

"We're especially glad to hear that the court is agreeing with the park rangers and the public who are concerned that there will be negative impacts from the (now-overturned) regulation and increased likelihood for opportunistic poaching of wildlife and increased risk of violence to the public."


Bryan F. must have some evidence to back up this claim.
Of course I am not familiar with ANY case of a licensed CCW holder 'poaching' with their concealed pistol.. park or not

The remark about "increased risk of violence to the public".. again where is there ANY case of a CCW holder using violence against anyone but a criminal

No reference to any case to justify their stance, no research on the issue, only repetition of their emotional language and their irrational anti-gun stance

Facts are not important these days however.. if you 'feel' threatened you are justified it seems


A group representing park rangers, retirees and conservation organizations protested the Bush rule change, complaining that it could lead to confusion and increased danger for visitors, rangers and other law enforcement agencies.

So what group? The NRA is called out by name but not this organization.
anyway..
"complaining that it could lead to confusion and increased danger for visitors" = what? where? what confusion.. was there confusion? or was there a perceived risk that there MIGHT be some confusion?
Now we don't need actual issues, just perceived risk of issues to justify our agendas ??

Lastly.. "complaining that it could lead to confusion and increased danger for visitors, rangers and other law enforcement agencies."
WTH, in what way does a registered CCW holder create any potential or real risk to Law Enforcement? Licenses CCW holders are typically the only part of the population that has studied the actual laws about citizens role in assisting law enforcement

What garbage in my opinion
There was no issue here, simply a pissing match, fear and ignorance

The lobby against guns simply wanted to 'push' their agenda and saw this as a possible angle
Bias reporting like this story only perpetrate the ignorance and fear of inanimate objects

After reading this commentary, please take a moment and think about what they will be afraid of next, after they have stripped all rights away from gun owners.

Shooting conflict on national forest land resolved favorably

Dateline Tucson

As this is my first article for Examiner.com, I’ll first give readers a background on me, then an update on a situation with the Pima County Sheriffs Department.
I have been an Arizona certified concealed weapons instructor since 1994, and have been teaching classes almost since that time on the CCW permit qualification course. I am also one of the four founding members of the Arizona Citizens Defense League, ( www.azcld.org ) a 501 c (4) civil rights organization with a focus on article 2, Section 26 of Arizona’s Constitution, the right to bear arms. I am AzCDL’s serving secretary. I host the only syndicated program on radio originating in Arizona, which deals with right to keep and bears arms (RKBA) issues as a part of its mission.
Most people not familiar with Arizona gun laws, think that we are unregulated here. Such is not so. While the infringements are less Californicative and New Jerseyistic, there are still incursions against our liberty. One is detailed below, with, for a change, a positive resolution.
In November of this year, I was teaching a CCW class on the mountain north of Tucson, Mt. Lemon. We were doing the shooting qualification, when a Pima County Sheriffs Deputy approached us. The deputies have jurisdiction on the road that goes up the mountain (about 27 miles from the base) and also have a joint jurisdiction for enforcement with the U.S. Forest Service.
It seems that someone had pitched a tent adjacent to the area at milepost 4.3 that is frequently used for target shooting. The tent was not in the line of fire.
Looking North from halfway between the main road and the shooting berm.
The tent in question was outside the frame of this picture, 90 degress left
at 220 yards.

The deputy interrupted the class and told me that we could not shoot there, “within a ¼ mile of the tent.” I explained politely that the quarter mile rule involved hunting, not target shooting. His response to me was, “I’m not going to argue with you, it’s a ¼ mile.” As we were done shooting anyway, I informed him of that, and he left.

Round 2 began on the phone with the east side watch commander, Lt. David Theil, on the following Monday. I informed Lt. Theil and his duty sergeant, that the deputy had been professional, but that he was incorrect. His sergeant explained that they were enforcing ARS 17-309, which is a hunting rule.

17-309. Violations; classification
A. Unless otherwise prescribed by this title, it is unlawful for a person to:
4. Discharge a firearm while taking wildlife within one-fourth mile of an occupied farmhouse or other
residence, cabin, lodge or building without permission of the owner or resident.

I politely informed Lt. Theil and his sergeant that I was not hunting, but target shooting. The sergeant claimed that, “target shooting is a hunting activity.” I explained that it was not, and that I did not have a hunting license, nor did I need one. The sergeant then insisted that a hunting license was required.
I reminded the sergeant that hunting licenses were only required on Arizona state trust lands, NOT the national forest. His response, “Oh yeah, that’s right.” I then explained that the controlling legislation was Title 36 of the code of federal regulations, part 261.10, “occupancy and use.”

(d) Discharging a firearm or any other implement capable of taking human life, causing injury, or damaging property as follows:
(1) In or within 150 yards of a residence, building, campsite, developed recreation site or occupied area, or (2) Across or on a National Forest System road or a body of water adjacent thereto, or in any manner or place whereby any person or property is exposed to injury or damage as a result in such discharge.

The duty sergeant then went on to insist that if we had continued to shoot there, “it would have been an issue for the courts to sort out.”

I informed both Lt. Theil and his sergeant that they were exceeding their authority under the color of law, which violated both Arizona and Federal law, and that if a court of law was to decide the issue, it might be under a federal prosecution of them for deprivation of civil rights under 18 U.S. code. Lt. Theil then said that I was being “bellicose.”

Not satisfied with that result, I contacted my county supervisor for the east side, Ray Carroll. We arranged a meeting with Lt. Theil.

During that February 18 meeting with Lt. Theil and District 4 County Supervisor Ray Carroll, I presented Lt. Theil with a written copy of both federal law and state hunting regulation, and pointed out to him again that the sheriffs department was exceeding its authority under color of law.
I asked Lt. Theil if it was the policy of his department to enforce “what was NOT the law.” He said to me, “no, it has never been the department policy to exceed its authority, and there is NO quarter mile rule for target shooting.”
What a different story than over the phone, I must point out to the reader. But now, just as interesting, he said something else. “I’m sure you’d agree with me based on experience, that there is a good reason for safety’s sake, to apply that hunting quarter mile rule to target shooting, wouldn’t you Mr. Heller?”
“No, Lt. Theil, I would not. In hunting you have a moving target, and in target shooting, you do not. Also in target shooting, you can control for rule 4.” (Always know your target and what’s beyond it.)
Lt. Theil then said, “well, the deputy was merely erring on the side of caution.”
Supervisor Carroll told me later that he was glad that the situation was resolved, as “I shoot at that very same spot with my son.”
Score one for the good guys.

Mossberg and Remington Serbus

We had the rare opportunity to photograph a group of Serbu short shotguns. This was our first opportunity to photograph both models together. Here are the two versions of the Serbu Super Shorty side by side.

The two styles are made from a Mossberg and from a Remington. These short shotguns are classified as an Any Other Weapon (AOW) by the ATF which makes them federally regulated and taxed. The AOW tax is $5. These shotguns are the shortest 12 gauge shotguns in production. Both of the Serbu Super Shorty models hold two 2-3/4 inch or 3 inch shells in the magazine, plus one in the chamber.
