The two cofounders of Orcish Operator have created a series of six gaming targets (three above, click to embiggen) for arms and archery with the goal of creating a product that would not only appeal to current gun enthusiasts but attract new people into the world of gun ownership and shooting sports. The targets draw inspiration from fantasy games and movies and are available in two sizes, 24”x36” and 12”x18”. Unfortunately, they do not appear to be “visible shot” targets like Shoot-N-C or Dirty Bird. Images of their other targets are available at their website and they are currently seeking crowdsourced funding through Indiegogo. . .
Shoulda been a Philly DGU. Really thin on information, but police are looking for three men involved in an attack that killed another man on Monday. The deceased was stabbed repeatedly in the face and neck with a machete in broad daylight early Monday afternoon, and the three persons of interest then fled the scene in a gold car. Google StreetView shows it to be not the best neighborhood, so odds are high that it was drug/gang/crime-related, but even criminals have the right to defend their own life from sudden attack. NB: While gun laws may have kept guns out of the hands of the machete-wielding miscreants, forcing them to choose other avenues of attack, those laws didn’t keep the bad guys’ target alive.
The San Francisco Police Officers Association filed a lawsuit Tuesday challenging San Francisco’s recently passed confiscatory ban on magazines holding greater than 10 rounds. The lawsuit, which is also being backed by the NRA, argues that magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds are commonly owned and therefore protected under the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The ordinance, which was passed unanimously by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors on October 29th, will go into effect on December 8th unless the judge approves SFPOA’s request for an injunction.
Last Thursday I advised you to be on the lookout for a rifle that a Wisconsin sheriff’s deputy left on his trunk and drove away. It seems a local good samaritan found it and returned it the next day, so that’s good news for the deputy. Sorry if you were in the area and missed your chance.
Hickok45 performs a little pistol barrel length testing to find out if size really matters. Since his shoot videos and “tests” usually consist of him making improbable distance shots on steel and giving his subjective opinion, it was interesting to see him actually writing down numbers in this one.
