In light of current events it appears there is panic buying of firearms and ammunition. I noticed on the Cheaper Than Dirt web site that they had suspended firearm sales due to heavy demand. Our local dealer also tells me that he has gotten many “out of stock” responses from his suppliers on purchase requests. Be patient and write your congressperson.
Slide Fire Rifle Operation:
Our club officials recently observed a member operating a slide fire (or bump fire) rifle on one of the practice ranges. This device is not illegal, but mimics full auto operation. Our concern is rounds exiting the property due to muzzle climb, and the perception of our neighbors when the sound is heard. The board of directors voted to require approval of the use of these devices prior to operation. If you are planning to do so please attend a board meeting.
Information On Firearms Legislation:
We have had several members voice concerns about getting information to our members regarding pending legislation.
