CCW holder successfully defends self in work place violence incident (Osceola Co, FL) (Dec 30 2014)

tl;dr, Pastor was firing maintenance employee at church, employee pulls firearm, starts shooting. Pastor draws, incapacitates employee, who is was hauled off to the hospital to reconsider his life choices.

All things considered, it worked out as well as it could have. No injuries to the intended victim (pastor) who successfully defended himself, and no bystanders injured as well. Work place violence incidents don’t typically turn out this well, usually there are at least two bodies when it’s over, the intended victim, the perpetrator, and often a bystander or two

Gun law in California changes 1jan2015

December 31, 2014

SACRAMENTO – The new year brings a tougher gun law changing the kinds of guns that can be purchased in California.

Current laws allow gun shop owners to convert a semiautomatic handgun – not on the state’s approved roster – to fire single-shot only through the use of a magazine plug and extended barrel.

In July, Governor Brown signed Assembly Bill 1964 – a law banning the sale of single-shot handguns that can be altered into semi-automatic weapons.

“The restriction is not on the purchaser or owner, it’s on the dealer. There is nothing that says you can’t own a handgun not on the approved roster, it says a dealer can’t sell it,” said Big Shot store manager Steven Rubert.

Rubert added that the new change would make a number of the guns in their inventory partially useless.

“We are either going to need to sell online or out of state to purchasers who live in a state where it would be legal for them to own it or law enforcement officers which we have a lot here in San Diego,” said Rubert.

The legislation’s sponsor, Assemblyman Roger Dickinson (D-Sacramento), contends that as many as 18,000 of what he terms “unsafe” single-shot handguns were transferred in the state in 2013, and his bill, now signed into law would halt this practice.

However many like Rubert, argue that it simply makes for tougher business for California gun shops.

“What it basically means is that we have a shrinking number of guns we are allowed to sell in California,” said Rubert. “There is nothing that makes these guns anymore dangerous to their users or in a defensive situation.

Reprint on life saving article using a gun

On December 23, a home invader burst through a door in Memphis, Tennessee, and put a gun to a woman’s neck. He was then shot multiple times and killed.

According to WREG, 22-year-old Nico Carlisle and another suspect knocked on a door on the “2300 block of Devoy” around 6 p.m. When a woman went to the door, the two suspects forced their way into the house, and Carlisle put a gun to the woman’s neck.

At that point, the homeowner emerged–gun in hand–and shot Carlisle multiple times. Police arrived, found Carlisle “laying at the front door,” and pronounced him dead at the scene. The second suspect escaped and has yet to be identified.

A neighbor who witnessed the events unfold said he saw “some boys go over there next door, you know, trying to get up in their house.” He walked to his own door for a clearer view, and “that’s when [he] heard some shots.”

Family Range Day today

December 28, 2014

Went to the range with a family that has not shot before. I took them through different firearms to shoot.

We start out with the basics of fire and safety. Then we progressed to how to properly hold of firearm including a pistol and rifle.

After the basics we put them all on a 22 pistol and a 22 rifle . This was Duninor to get them to assume the proper should position and then they fired rounds at different middle targets .

After this indoctrination we progressed to shooting pistols, a rifle and shot gun. The purpose of this activity was just to make them familiar with the different techniques and holding the different firearms .

They all had a fantastic time and are going to come back in the future for more in-depth training .

If you want to learn how to shoot or experience different firearms give us a call or go one of our websites at .
