Klamath Defensive Shooting

In June, we will have a three-gun match on the fourth Sunday
And a Defensive Shoot on the Third Sunday of the month.
The legislature’s three leading gun grabbers have introduced yet another omnibus anti-gun bill. This one, SB 1065 includes language from several previous anti-gun bills that died due to a procedural error made by Floyd Prozanski, a sponsor of this bill.
The bill is a 26 page monstrosity, but here are the lowlights.
Among many other things this bill does, it nearly quintuples the length of time the State Police can deny you a firearms transfer with no cause.
It also drastically complicates the process for getting a concealed handgun license . Online classes will be prohibited unless the class is provided by the NRA or an "Oregon law enforcement agency or association. "
There are currently many other online class options for CHL courses. This bill would prohibit them all and give an almost exclusive online monopoly to NRA and the Oregon State Sheriffs Association.
(It’s interesting to note that several years ago, NRA informed its instructors that if instructors offered their own online classes they risked having their certification revoked. More recently NRA changed their rules so that NRA classes could only be completed by students who took the NRA’s online class. Even more recently, NRA reversed course again and agreed to allow certified NRA instructors to give complete NRA classes.)
The bill also requires live fire, something many NRA instructors are not in a position to offer, and it requires "training in the safe loading, unloading, storing and carrying of handguns and information on Oregon and relevant federal laws governing the lawful use of a firearm, including self-defense, the use of force, including deadly force, and the transportation and concealment of handguns."
While NRA instructors should certainly be qualified to train in loading, unloading and carrying of handguns, (and we hope this would be a normal part of any class), very few are qualified to teach Oregon laws and, in fact, NRA discourages instructors from getting into a discussion of statutes. Nowhere in this bill is there any discussion of what would make a person qualified to teach Oregon and Federal laws on self defense, or the use of force or deadly force. Not only would this bill prevent most instructors from teaching a CHL class to begin with, since most don’t have ranges, but the potential liability to instructors is staggering.
We have no doubts that, should this bill pass, we will soon be faced with a requirement that CHL classes must be taught by lawyers. Think about the restrictions that will place on class availability and the added expense.
Of course, there is nothing that has happened in the almost 30 years that Oregon has offered CHL’s that indicates any of this is necessary.
This bill does many other bad things and has serious technical flaws, but its clear intent is to create more obstacles and impediments to lawful firearms ownership.
Please take action now and tell the Oregon Senate to vote no on SB 1065.
New Jersey State Police Sue Gun Maker,
Citing Defective Handguns
The lawsuit says that many of the guns malfunctioned by not ejecting shell casings when fired.
Author: Associated Press
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey has sued gun manufacturer Sig Sauer, saying it sold defective handguns to the state police.
The company, based in Newington, New Hampshire, sold 3,000 handguns to New Jersey State Police for nearly $2 million.
But the lawsuit says that when the weapons were delivered in 2014, many of the guns malfunctioned by not ejecting shell casings when fired.
The lawsuit says Sig Sauer failed to provide new guns to the state by an agreed-upon date.
New Hampshire Public Radio reports that the New Jersey attorney general has filed a breach of contract complaint,
seeking a refund, plus nearly $900,000 to cover the cost of purchased holsters.
Sig Sauer didn’t respond to a request for comment.
Special Ops Gadgets for Elite Military Teams
It’s like a supermarket for Navy SEALs. A grocery store for Green Berets. A Costco for commandos.
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — It’s a conference for military special operations forces and their gadgets, weapons and tools. The Special Operations Forces Industry Conference is held yearly in Tampa. Here, the U.S. Special Operations Command — the Tampa-based unit that oversees all of the nation’s elite military teams — shops for equipment.
Lantern-jawed Marines in camo mingle with computer geeks in chinos who run complex intel programs on the convention floor. Panels such as "Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit Sessions" are popular, and alphabet soup acronyms are common in casual conversation ("Are you going to the USSOCOM J-Code Directors Panel?").
Outside the convention center, maritime displays of sleek boats with mounted weapons cruise by, and underwater drones surface.
Prototypes of new gadgets and gear are showcased. Robots, holograms, tanks, lethal weapons — it’s all on display.
Here are some of the interesting gadgets that were on the trade show floor during the weeklong event, which wraps up Friday.
Deep Trekker is a Canadian company that sells underwater drones. The small grey cylinders with cameras can be remote-controlled on land or in the water, and Sam MacDonald, president, says the device can dive down 150 meters — it’s great for hull inspection or contraband, checking out port security.
"We’ve also had it used in the Special Forces, for things they can’t really tell us a lot about," she said.
Joseph Smith of Massachusetts-based Endeavor Robotics smiled patiently when a reporter asked whether his company’s robots were in any way like the ubiquitous Roomba vacuums. At more than $100,000 each, the 510 Packbot overcomes stairs, obstacles and debris. It can reach speeds of 5.8 MPH (9.3 KM/H); perform bomb disposal, surveillance and reconnaissance; and detect hazardous materials.
Smith, a Marine, looked around the trade show floor.
"I would say that this room is probably filled with the world’s best in class warriors, yes."
Gabriele de Plano of gunmaker Beretta showed off a new rifle,
that a soldier doesn’t have to carry around a ton of batteries for the rifle’s components.
"Overall, we’re simplifying the system; we’re adding capabilities with what the soldier can do with his assault rifle," de Plano said.
The rifle’s components run on six AA batteries
Jeffry Pietersz of the Netherlands-based TAGS-Systems not only sells things that will help soldiers rappel up and down buildings but
is also a little like Spiderman himself.
"When a special forces team wants to enter a ship, they use one of our compact launchers to shoot a grapnel and hook onto a ship with a rope attached," Pieterz explained, tugging on a device and a rope attached high into the convention center rafters. "And if they want to climb the ship, they can use one of our power ascenders to assault it. This is a battery-powered ascender — it has an exchangeable battery, and it has a lifting capacity of 150 kilograms. Optimized for a fully equipped operator. It will hoist yourself up 60 meters per minute."
With that, he zipped into the air.
