I found this review online from the Military Channel and I have to agree with most of what he said. I have one mounted on a Ruger American Rifle Chambered in 30-06 and it is a great scope for the money. I would definitely put it in the same class as a Nikon but I still think that the Luepold has better clarity and high quality glass. You can see some actual pictures of the scope on my firearm and some previous blog posts.

Five people dead including two children. Manchester, Illinois where Rick Smith nephew of Mayor Ronald drake took the lives of others dying in the gunfight. The victims included a young couple and their two children and a grandmother. How do you think those strict Illinois firearms laws are working out for these people? This goes to show you even in your own home, always be prepared. Do some research.

Went out to Milstadt, IL at the Quail Club and did the 3-D Bow shoot this weekend. Talk about a good time for $12 bucks. Total of 40 Targets of various ranges and sizes. You can see my last post for some of the specs of my bow and arrows.

With a 3-D Bow shoot right around the corner, I had to break out “the block” to brush up on my bow skills. It was a tad rainy so I only got to shoot a couple dozen times. I have a Matthews Drenalin 28’’ Draw 70 lb bow with a G5 Outdoors XR Sights with the Rhemostat LED Light. I have a limbsaver stabilizer and a Quality Archery Designs drop away rest. My arrows are Easton Axis 340 Full Metal Jacket Aluminum coated and carbon infused. This bow is lightweight has an awesome letoff is very smooth and very quiet.

If you don’t belong to the NRA you don’t get updates like I do from the NRA-ILA about stuff going on in my area revolving around anything firearms or something that may infringe on my 2nd Amendment rights. You probably have heard about the recent debacle with the Missouri Department of Revenue. If you haven’t read up on my blog as I have several posts regarding the subject. Here is what NRA sent out to me this morning:

“As we have previously reported, the Missouri Department of Revenue (DOR) initiated a new and dangerous procedure of scanning, keeping and sharing personal documents with the federal government related to the issuance of your driver’s license and right to carry permit. This recordkeeping and sharing of private documents by the DOR is a serious violation of public trust and the Missouri Legislature is taking swift action to remove DOR’s role in the permit issuing process by pursuing enactment of House Bill 8.

HB 8, sponsored by state Representative Rick Stream (R-90) and spearheaded through the Missouri Senate by Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Kurt Schaefer (R-19), is a funding measure that transfers the authority for issuance of Right-to-Carry permit certificates and the permits themselves from the DOR to Missouri sheriffs.

To pursue this evolving issue and obtain answers on these invasions of privacy, the Senate Appropriations Committee is holding hearings in the following cities to receive public input on HB 8, and how it relates to the budget and funding process.

Please attend these important meetings and thank the Senate Appropriations Committee for taking the appropriate steps to protect the privacy of Missouri’s permit holders.”

All,

I am a pretty big supporter of Ruger firearms and the stronger stance they have taken for 2nd Amendment. The contact your representatives feature this year in the wake of all the anti gun legislation is a great example.

I gave them my feedback and if you so desire you should to.

Some of the things I outlined were:

· Expand your product line to get back into the shotgun arena and perhaps a muzzleloader

· Continue and enhance your pro 2nd amendment stance

· Develop and continue to expand your line of compact carry pistols

· Offer budget conscious / value for quality options to consumers (Ruger American Rifle is a great example of such an offering)

· Continue to offer excellent customer service
