    vreihen: Notwithstanding that I have been raised in a societal culture where gun ownership is not a big issue, if I had to make a choice between the gunja weed, or a weapon, I know which one I would choose (especially if I was registered on PA's medical marijuana program because of a chronic ailment) !! But it's always fascinating to be reminded how very important this issue is in America!!

    As a European, this is why I love America from a distance, with the Atlantic inbetween.

    Hadn't been pistol-shooting in a while. I'll try to resume my weekly schedule
    Just brought my daily carry tonight. All pics 25yd, Sig 10mm 180gr, Glock 20 with lone wolf barrel.

    I never got to posting the results of my .308 reloads. Looks like 43gr of Ramshot TAC is the ticket for that rifle @ 200yd:

    I think it was -6*C that day, but those 175gr TMKs chronoed at 2629/2614/2619/2629/2629 fps

    Hey, Jason. Elon Musk just announced the perfect solution to your raccoon problem. For a mere $500, you can pre-order the Boring Company flame thrower!

    Probably not legal in New Yorkistan, due to the pistol grip.....

    reloading on sunday


    Finishing my box of polymer coated 124s (had 353 left)... compared to jacketed or even x-treme heavy plated, coated bullets are way too delicate and I will stick to the former. They require a lot of belling to not scrape down to lead and loose accuracy. Also they smoke a lot more. Those are Better Bullets PC, which are supposed to be the better kind... I also have 350 left from Palmetto Projectiles which seem to be less "premium"

    Beleaguered Gun Maker Remington Points to Bankruptcy Court
    Remington reaches financing deal that'll allow it continue operating as it seeks Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

    Feb. 12, 2018, at 11:40 a.m.
    The Associated Press

    MADISON, N.C. (AP) — Remington, the gun maker beset by falling sales and lawsuits tied to the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, has reached a financing deal that would allow it to continue operating as it seeks Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

    The maker of the Bushmaster AR-15-style rifle used in the Connecticut shooting that left 20 first-graders and six educators dead in 2012, said Monday that the agreement with lenders will reduce its debt by about $700 million and add about $145 million in new capital.

    The company was cleared of any wrongdoing in the shooting, but investors repulsed by the massacres distanced themselves from the company's owner, investment firm Cerberus Capital Management. Cerberus acquired the gun maker in 2007, just when gun sales began to skyrocket.

    Firearm background checks, a reliable barometer of gun sales, had risen steadily for at least a decade.

    That changed last year with the election of President Donald Trump, and it has taken a toll on the gun industry.

    Gun sales spike on the election of candidates who are perceived to be more likely to pursue more stringent gun control laws, whether or not there is any truth in that perception.

    The opposite has occurred since Trump was elected. He became the first sitting president to address the National Rifle Association in three decades, telling members at their annual meeting last spring that "You have a true friend and champion in the White House."

    Firearm background checks declined faster in 2017 than in any year since 1998, when the FBI first began compiling the data.

    While Remington is not a publicly traded company, shares in rival Sturm, Ruger & Co. slid almost 3 percent Monday. It's shares have fallen almost 14 percent this year.

    Remington Outdoor Co., the nation's oldest gun maker, will attempt to file a prepackaged reorganization plan with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court of Delaware under Chapter 11 of the bankruptcy code.

    The company, based in Madison, North Carolina, did not respond to attempts by The Associated Press to contact the company about the timing of bankruptcy procedures.
