    ..... an indoor firing range with son-in-law the ex-cop and pumped about 50 rounds into a # 12 target. Nice pattern. I like the way my favorite handgun shoots. It makes a good shooter out of me even with a face mask on. . We're ready for whatever may come. Place was packed; eight lanes, all busy and people standing in line waiting their turn. How this place ever declared "essential" is hard to figure but I'm glad it is.

    I originally fired with the M1. Great weapon. Since then I have been able to fire the M14, most versions of the M16, the M4, the MP5, SAW weapons, .45 cal., and several versions of the 9mm. I fire on a yearly basis with the 1st Special Forces Group up here at Ft. Lewis. When I first fired the M1 I was not real accurate. I found out later I sighted with my left eye and had to adapt. With pistols I was deadly. I prefer firing them without the laser sighting. For some reason I seem to do better. When I was getting ready to deploy to Kosovo we went to Harmony Church at Benning and I had for the first time fired at pop up targets with the 9mm. That took a little getting use to. I do not own a weapon presently, but am strongly considering it in light of what is going on now. My good pal in Vegas is a retired metro cop and has offered to take me to his firing range to practice. I may take him up on it.

    My ex-cop Son-in-law has the receiver for the AR 15. .He wants to convert it to 9 mm. We stopped at a specialty gun shop in O.C. where they do that kind of conversion. He got a quote of $750-$900 to convert the receiver and complete the gun assembly. I'm interested in the AR-7 and asked if he could find one for me. He told me it's not legal in CA because of the short (12") barrel.

    9mm carbines are really fun to shoot, but I'd recommend buying a complete rifle for that price and keeping the AR lower.

    How do you protect yourself and your family if the majority of firearms that are needed for defense against mobs are illegal in the state.?

    What does your wife carry to prevent someone from assaulting her when pepper spray is outlawed in your state and concealed carry is very hard to acquire there?

    What do you do when your state has so many restrictive laws regarding firearm transporting, ammunition purchasing, firearm storage, and firearm registration that one cannot protect themselves if they actually needed to because the regulations would eliminate them from getting to their weapon to unlock it from the box it is in, get the ammunition stored somewhere else under lock and key, load your firearm...by then you are one dead pigeon.

    O.K., so just defend your home and property and have no protection when in the public domain...Even with all things legal, shoot someone for fear of your life and protection of your property who is trying to break in to your house by crashing a door or coming through a window and you will most likely be arrested in a state like Calimexizuela or New Dork.

    What 2nd Amendment are citizens referring to?

    Probably the one that the spineless, chicken shit elected officials of both parties try to dodge or ignore while leaving you dangling in the clutches of criminals and left wing radical ass hats that give illegal aliens and criminals more rights than hard working, taxpaying citizens...Time to do something about this issue. Concealed carry reciprocity across all the states would be a good start if one could find a majority of courageous congressional senators and representatives from the current batch of cowardly, traitorous, globalist inclined, socialist, ass hats parading as representatives of the citizens of the United States of America.

    Someone in Mississippi (I wont say who) asked the Sheriff of her County the same question about what do I do if I'm attacked but not in my home. Sheriff said.... " shoot him and drag him into the house" ..... true story.

    What if you have to shoot multiple rioters coming at you on your lawn?

    You may have to get some help in dragging all the bodies into the house.
