Pinky Reid stealthily supporting anti-gun zealot Andrew F. Traver to head BATFE?

December. 7th 2010

Pinky Reid showing his true colors again? Stealthily supporting anti-gun zealot Andrew F. Traver to head BATFE? I've been out of town for the big SAR show in Phoenix, so when I got back I wanted to catch up on what's going on with congress. Not too happy with what I've found! It seems Pinky has NOT made any real effort to ensure the Traver nomination is voted on before congress adjourns. This is typical of him and how he creates one impression with the media while actually working to another purpose. He will let Traver become a recess appointment,…

Laser Lightshow: Crimson Trace, LaserMax, LaserLyte Compete

November. 17th 2010

No Comments »

Proponents of laser sights say the electronic devices make it easier and faster to hit a target—on average, a half second to 1 second faster, depending on the shooter. Mainly, the reason is optical: Shooting with iron sights takes effort, since three focal planes need to be aligned: rear sight, front sight, and target. By projecting an aiming point onto the target plan, the laser folds all three sight plans into one target plane. Place the dot on a target at the zeroed in range, and that is where the bullets will hit. Another advantage laserphiles claim is that lasers allow the shooter to hit targets from unconventional or inconvenient shooting positions with ease. And, importantly, laser sights also make good training devices.
