    Video calls B.S. on 'hi-cap' magazine myth

    A newly-produced video, funded by ArmaLite and supervised by Boone County, Ind. Sheriff Ken Campbell, demolishes the myth surrounding so-called “high capacity magazines” that banning these devices will prevent the rare mass shooting events that currently fuel the gun prohibition movement.

    And just to think that I can take my Ruger #1 single shot .375 H&H mag. shoot it every couple of seconds all day long without ever having to reload a magazine at all. My arms would tire or my shoulder would fall off before I ran out of ammo and wasn't a threat. But I guess because it's not painted black, it's not scary and deserving of any attention.

    Does this video address the need for "Common Sense" gun violence prevention?

    EXCELLENT video - thanks for posting.

    The Boone County SO has hosted numerous firearms trainings under Sheriff Campbell's watch - this gentleman knows which end is up.

    Just give the lefty loosies a minute and they will have "Joe" out here with a special public announcement, explaining how silly the sheriff is, and that if he would have just used a shotgun in the demonstration it would have been better.

    Why didn't they run the gun to slide lock? Did they have the magazines almost full (or full) and then have them count their shots and reload after so many?

    In my opinion, they could have run a more realistic test. Run the gun to slide lock, have the magazines on the shooter instead of on a platform in front of them, and have someone who can actually get a magazine out without having to reach up and grab it or jiggling it loose. Last time I checked, people involved in mass shootings don't really care all that much about tac reloads considering they probably won't be reloading those magazines at a later time.

    While I agree that magazine restrictions won't do anything to stop active shooters, the shooters in the video didn't seem to keep up their rate of fire, when going between the 2,3,5 magazines for handguns. Seemed like they changed rate of fire IMO. I'm not concerned about the not running to slide lock, as Lanza did a gamer version of tac reloading.
    You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt

    Video calls B.S. on 'hi-cap' magazine myth

    Here is some more good news....

    (Sarcasm intended!)


    Here come the gun grabbers!

    TODAY, the Senate Judiciary Committee is holding a hearing on Senator Dianne Feinstein's anti-gun bill...which would BAN millions of commonly owned semi-automatic firearms and BAN ammunition magazines that hold more than ten rounds.

    YOUR SENATORS NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU RIGHT NOW!!!

    Please call both of your Senators today at (202) 224-3121 and tell them to OPPOSE the Feinstein Gun Grab bill.
    Tell your Senators that President Barack Obama's own Justice Department recently reported that any ban on semi-automatic firearms WILL NOT WORK...unless it includes mandatory gun buy backs, which is federal GUN CONFISCATION!

    Senator Feinstein herself told CBS's 60 Minutes that if she could get the votes "for an outright ban, picking up every one of them -- Mr. and Mrs. America turn 'em all in" she would do it!!!

    Please forward this email to everyone you know...tweet it...post it on Facebook...help us spread the word as far as you can.

    And please, help NRA-ILA win this fight with a much-needed contribution by clicking here.

    This is the fight of the century and we need every gun-owning patriot to be involved.

    Thank you for your leadership!

    Thanks for the video link Dave.

    I really wish it mattered.

    We see it, we know it's true, but we don't matter.

    At first while I was watching the woman shoot I was thinking the same thing, BUT as she went on I realized I need to change my routine of waiting for the slide lock. By changing the magazine while she has one round still in the chamber, she does not have to slingshot the slide or manipulate the slide lock after inserting the new magazine. Finding things like this are why I love this site.

    Video calls B.S. on 'hi-cap' magazine myth

    Why is everyone claiming that the liberals lack reasoning? You need to think through their viewpoints, and you'll notice that they have a very logical and unfortunately effective approach.

    They know that a 10 round limit won't reduce gun crimes. But that's not really the point, and most Americans will blindly believe them. And in 5 years, when the amount and severity of gun crimes doesn't change, they will say that it's because the evil NRA prevented them from legislating 5 round limits. And 5 years later, it'll be about banning all semiautomatic weapons. And in 5 years, revolvers will be on the chopping block. During this time, they'll be sure to also offer "gun safety" training to our public schools. Kids will slowly be indoctrinated with anti-gun school programs. Every kid will come out of school with Piers Morgan's level of "knowledge." And within 50 years, guns will be outlawed.

    Because there are still a few of us around that will make certain our children and grandchildren are "de-indoctrinated."

    That, and the "logical-future-hoping" Fabian Socialists forget one thing... Children are best manipulated with "reverse psychology." Tell them something is "verboten" and they will have it, covet it, and/or get it any way they can.
    It could be worse.

    In some training circles it is considered bad form if not amateurish to run the gun dry.

    The best part was the man shot 3-10 round magazines faster than 2-15 round magazine....

    Side note to anti gun folks that ask why do you need a 30 round magazine? Sometimes answering a question with a question is just the right thing to do....

    Ask them this.... Which is better, to run out of ammunition when you need more or to have ammunition left over?
