91 DAYS UNTIL ATF 41F

The New ruling on silencers goes into effect July 13th.  A lot of people are in a panic, in a way you should be and in a way not so much.  Let me give you a brief update on whats going on.

To be worried....well anytime laws change that make things more difficult it stresses us and makes people nervous.  When 41F comes into effect the major change will be the submission of passport style photos that you can get at any Walgreens or CVS just like when you submitted for your passport. The other thing will be fingerprints that you can get at any police station, border patrol office, jail or detention center.   Its really not that hard, the biggest concern will be taking the other people on your trust to do the same thing, it can a troublesome event, more of a hassle. But nothing pain staking or life changing.  You can still enjoy the silence just will a few more paper documents to do.
Not to be worried...silencers are still legal.  They're still available and still plenty of them,  For the guys that couldn't get a CLEO to sign off well now they can tell them to pound sand (don't do that) but no they bypass that guy and send in the docs and can get a silencer now.  Its a small step backwards but for the most part several steps forward.

To end, if you have any questions on silencers from buying them to filling out paperwork...ask me !!!!  Its what I live and breathe, I enjoy them and shoot them often.  If there is anything that a gun guy likes is showing off his guns, I'm here and will gladly show you the art of silence.

So I shot my first turkey today, scared the crap out of everyone in the frozen food section, it was awesome !!!!

We will be open on Thanksgiving Day normal business hours, 10a-6p, so once you're bored of the in-laws or want to get out of cleaning the kitchen, get out & shoot.

Also, this Saturday November 28th we will be having our Handgun Carry Class (open & concealed) at 2:00pm. Don't wait till next year when Open Carry goes into effect, Texas DPS is going to get backlogged with all the applications.....don't wait.

Get Out and Shoot

With hunting season quickly approaching and kids going back to school soon, we have started to conduct our Hunters Education Courses.  This course is required for every hunter (including out-of-state hunters) born on or after Sept. 2, 1971, you must successfully complete a Hunter Education Training Course. Minimum age of certification is 9 years of age.

Many people have asked

Do I need the Hunter Education Certificate to purchase a hunting license?

No, you are not required to show your certification when you purchase a license, but proof of certification or "deferral" is required to be on your person while hunting.

So what this means is that the 1st year you go hunting you'll need to purchase a deferral and carry that all season with you while hunting. You'll also need to be accompanied by someone that HAS passed the Hunters Education Course at all times.

Hunters Education Dates

August 14, 2015     2:00pm -6:00pm
August 16, 2015     10:00am-2:00pm
August 23, 2015     10:00am-2:00pm
August 30, 2015     10:00am-2:00pm

as always if you have any further questions or concerns don't hesitate to call us.

This Fourth of July, we might find ourselves enjoying hot dogs & burgers, congregating with loved ones wearing red, white and blue and enjoying our precious free time.  But July 4th is a time to step back, appreciate the freedoms we enjoy every day.  Thank you to everyone that has helped maintain our freedom, we appreciate you.  One of our freedoms is the right to have fun an in my opinion nothing is more fun then having a day at the range with my family & friends shooting guns.  So this weekend we will have ALL rentals free for everyone.  Yes we will be open July 4th & we have a Concealed Handgun Class on Sunday.

Get Out and Shoot

With Open Carry being signed into law just a few days ago, LOTS of people have questions on whats legal and whats not.  Well this Saturday June 27th we are having our Concealed Carry Class.
There was an article I read about Concealed Carry & Open Carry, it made an analogy of have a firearm very similar to wearing a seat belt.  "Does wearing a seat belt mean you want to get into an accident?  No, Of course not, but it makes horrible situations a little less horrible". 

Saturday June 27th at 2:00pm will be our next Concealed Carry Class, with the next class after that being July 5th.  Seats are filling up fast so please call to reserve your spot.
