I carry a Rogers Precision gun. I've taken it (and other equivalent guns) to Gunsite, the NTI, various matches, etc. They're machines, not art.

Branca knows self defense law well, but initial reports were that the McMichaels thought Arbery was the burglar seen on the surveillance tape. That doesn't justify a citizen's arrest. If the neighbor...

The first time I shot a Garand, I had not been briefed. After the 8th shot I heard a loud PIIING and saw something depart the rifle. I thought the gun was spontaneously disassembling.
