See more info here. If you've been putting it off, do it now.


Barrett's 82A1CAL - Semi Auto for California

The most exciting news we've heard in the last couple of days is that Barrett WILL make more of their semi-auto 50 calibers available for California. Even better - you can get into one for as little as $1300 down!!! See them here. For details on acquiring an 82A1CAL, email me using this link:


Support our Troops!!!

We want to thank the men and women who serve our country valiantly and without hesitation!!! We also want to send our condolences to the family and friends of Sgt. Rafael Peralta, who threw himself on top of a grenade before it exploded, in order to shield his fellow Marines from the blast. You can see the full story here. Our servicemen and women spend many months away from their families, which can get especially difficult around the holidays. Please show them your support by sending a message to them via Operation Dear Abby. Stay safe, troops! We support you 110%!!

Gun Show

We'll be at the Orange County Fairgrounds this Saturday and Sunday in Costa Mesa. You can download a coupon here and save $1 on admission. We will be pretty close to the usual place, I am told, which is near the back of building 12, up against the wall, between the folks with a bunch of scopes and the roll-up door. Also at the gun show, pick up discount certificates good for a full day's training class for just $25 for Level 1, and just $50 for Level 2, Night Shoot or Defensive Shotgun Course from Civilian Arms Training Source. Stop by our display at the show and say HI!


In Freedom,

A young man named John received a parrot as a gift. The parrot had a bad attitude and an even worse vocabulary. Every word out of the bird's mouth was rude, obnoxious and laced with profanity.

John tried and tried to change the bird's attitude by consistently saying only polite words, playing soft music and anything else he could think of to "clean up" the bird's vocabulary.

Finally, John was fed up and he yelled at the parrot. The parrot yelled back.

John shook the parrot and the parrot got angrier and even ruder. In desperation, John threw up his hands, grabbed the bird and put him in the freezer.

For a few minutes the parrot squawked and kicked and screamed. Then suddenly there was total quiet. Not a peep was heard for over a minute. Fearing that he'd hurt the parrot, John quickly opened the door to the freezer.

The parrot calmly stepped out onto John's outstretched arms and said, "I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and actions. I'm sincerely remorseful for my inappropriate transgressions and I fully intend to do everything I can to correct my rude and unforgivable behavior."

John was stunned at the change in the bird's attitude. He was about to ask the parrot what had made such a dramatic change in his behavior, when the bird continued, "May I ask what the turkey did?"
