H.R. 2810

Arroyo Grande Sportsmans Club, Government, Guns, In the News, Legislation, NRA
President Trump recently signed H.R. 2810, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2018 (NDAA) into law.  Included in the law is a provision that would require military surplus M1911 and M1911A1 pistols (1911s) to be made available for sale to the public.  The military has nearly 100,000 1911s in storage, at the expense of American taxpayers. In 2015, President Obama authorized the Secretary of Defense to transfer up to 10,000 1911s per year to the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) for public sale.  However, no transfers were made while Obama was in the White House. The 2018 NDAA establishes a mandatory pilot program where 8,000-10,000 1911s be transferred to CMP for public sale in 2018.  Dependent on the outcome of the 2018 program, the Secretary of Defense may then…

Surviving a Self-Defense Shooting

Education, Guns, NRA
The NRA has put together a guide to help you navigate through the aftermath of a self-defense shooting incident.  No matter how justified, the legal and financial consequences of a shooting can produce devastating and long lasting effects. Coming off the physiological adrenaline rush can make it difficult to make correct decisions.  It is not the time to make mistakes.  Properly preparing can help ensure your safety and help you avoid incriminating yourself. NRA Carry Guard Lead Instructor Jeff Houston advises: When police are on the scene, keep your firearm clearly pointed in a safe direction, away from police and citizens. Ideally, you will holster your firearm just as they are arriving so that they do not see you manipulating a firearm at all.  The guide provides you with basic instructions and answers…
