NRA WI CCW Workshops

Just got this in the ol' inbox-
Right-to-Carry a Reality in Wisconsin! 
Find out more at our upcoming briefing!
Attend a FREE Workshop to learn about the Wisconsin Right-to Carry legislation recently-signed by Governor Scott Walker. During this workshop you will also learn about how you can support the Senators who supported Right-to-Carry during the upcoming recall election. 
DEAR WISCONSIN NRA MEMBER: WITH GOVERNOR WALKER’S SIGNING OF THE PERSONAL PROTECTION ACT ON FRIDAY JULY 8, RESIDENTS OF THE BADGER STATE WILL FINALLY HAVE THE ABILITY TO DEFEND THEMSELVES AND THEIR FAMILIES BY CARRYING A CONCEALED FIREARM FOR SELF DEFENSE. 
In advance of the new law taking effect, NRA-ILA headquarters staff is hosting a series of workshops to provide you with information on what you need to do to obtain your permit and what this new law allows you to do. NRA-ILA Campaign Field Representative Nate Nelson will also be in attendance to brief you on volunteer opportunities for the upcoming recall election. 
We need your help to support the Senators who helped make Right-to-Carry a reality in Wisconsin! 
We have won a major battle with the enactment of the Personal Protection Act but there is much more to accomplish in the fight for your firearms freedom. The future of other legislative priorities such as the Castle Doctrine is completely dependent on the outcome of this summer’s recall elections. You can help make the difference!
These workshops are absolutely free and beverages and light snacks will be provided. Each workshop will run about 60-90 minutes. Please make plans to attend one of our events and encourage your fellow NRA members and Second Amendment supporters to attend as well!

I'm hoping they'll hold one in the Central Wisconsin Area (like Gander up by Wausau again...)


If you're near one, it should be worth checking out.

More Gunrunner/Gunwalker/Fast&Furious...

...or whatever it's called this week.  Anyway, Uncle has a bunch more updates and links dealing with the ATF's gun smuggling shenanigans.

It also seems the NRA and NSSF are less than amused by the new long gun reporting rules.

Beaver Tails

Source


















Not quite...

There it is.

Vuurwapen Blog has up a good video showing the effectiveness of the Beaver tail add-on backstrap Glock has developed for the Gen4.

It's always good to see a major company listening to the end users, and one of the largest complaints about Glocks has always been the grip angle and lack of a beaver tail.  S&W included a fantastic one on the M&P series, and I'm sure their sales also drove Glock to look into it more as well.

I like beaver tails on pistols.  Way back when 5 years ago or so...) I had the opportunity to shoot a genuine 1911.  Not a 1911A1, but the WWI issue 1911.  I've got pretty good sized hands (it comes with a 6'4"+ frame...) and it took a great big chunk out of the web of my hand with the first shot.  It hurt, but I finished off the mag before grumbling about it and going back to my Kimber with the extended beaver tail and bobbed hammer.

Bite-free living!













I believe beaver tail grips give you more control too.  They let you get your hand up higher into the gun, much along my mantra of "get as much meat on the gun as possible," and spreading out the recoil impulse over a larger area, reducing muzzle flip.










I don't think the Glock factory piece is available yet, but there's a couple other alternatives out there already, SSD mentioned this one yesterday (keep an eye out over there if you're interested.)

Don't expect to see a Glock in the G&C Armory anytime soon though.  A simple beaver tail is a long way from making me like them.  I'll stick to my M&P and SigPro for my tupperware needs.
