November being upon us, our monthly meeting moves from the first Thursday to the Thursday after hunting season. So, our next meeting will be held on November 15th, at 7:30 pm, at our clubhouse (click for map). Visitors are always welcome!
I chanced upon this article a few days ago, and thought it might be of interest. “The Five Most Important Guns In American History.”
For those who want just to know the five, without their history, they are:
- Kentucky Rifle
- Colt’s “Peacemaker”
- Spencer’s Repeating Rifle
- The Browning 1911
- Stoner’s AR-15/M-16
But do read the article; the history of each is fascinating.
A discouraging weather forecast led to a smaller-than-usual turnout for our 2018 Trap Shoot. That’s a shame, because it ended up being a beautiful sunny day:

This just in from the Canadian Shooting Sports Association:
Have your say: The Canadian government opens its public consultation on banning handguns and semi-auto rifles.
Prime Minister Trudeau has asked the Honourable Bill Blair, Minister of Border Security and Organized Crime Reduction, to lead an examination of a ban on handguns and “assault weapons” in Canada, while not impeding the lawful use of firearms by Canadians.
The Government of Canada says they would like to hear your views.
This is your chance to have your say directly to the government. Consultations are available from October 11 to November 10, 2018. Please do this right away.
You can go directly to the online survey here: https://www.publicsafety.gc.ca/cnt/cnslttns/hndgn/index-en.aspx Note that some proposals are calling for a ban on all semi-automatic rifles (even a little .22), so this is important to us.
Our next meeting will be held on Thursday, October 4th, at 7:30 pm, at our clubhouse (click for map). Visitors are always welcome!
