Reed Refuses to Budge as Eastern Show Fallout Nears 200

Despite the withdrawal of at least 183 exhibitors, and 23 scheduled celebrities, British-owned Reed Outdoor Exhibitions refuses to budge on a prohibition of the presence or display of images of the modern sporting rifle at its Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show scheduled for February 2-10 at the State Farm Complex in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Yesterday, Smith & Wesson, the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation (RMEF) joined the growing list of companies withdrawing both their participation and sponsorship of the east’s largest sport and outdoor show. In protest of the Reed Decision, former advertiser MyNortheastOutdoors.com plans to build and host a no-cost “Virtual Sports Show” online for vendors who have pulled out of the show.

NWTF Joins Companies Withdrawing from Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show

Calling it “an important time to take a clear stance on the support of sportsmen and the Second Amendment and the clear link between the two, the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) has joined the companies withdrawing from the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show due to the show’s decision to ban the display of modern sporting rifles.

RMEF Withdraws from Eastern Outdoor Show

The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation has announced its withdrawal as an exhibitor and conductor of the elk calling contest from the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show in Pennsylvania.

This Week in Guns – Bans & Confiscations

This Week in Guns features a panel of hosts from the Firearms Radio Network headed by Jake Challand, they discuss the magazine ban in New York, possible confiscations and the realities of an assault weapon ban.

Beck and lots of Guns…

During his television program on Tuesday night, Glenn Beck brought in gun expert Paul Michael and historian David Barton to dispel a number of myths about firearms. In the middle of Beck’s Dallas studio sat a table full of various types of firearms — all unloaded of course.

Watch Beck and company go over the difference between “assault rifles” and regular rifles and other common misconceptions about guns:

Hollywood Blames Guns, Americans Blame Hollywood

If we banned TeeVees…Hollywierd wold shrivel up and die…Just a thought….

If you only own 1 gun, own this 1

I agree the .22 lr would make and excellent one gun to survive weapon. I would not as to it ‘having’ to be a Ruger. I think there are a number of fine .22 rifles out there..and I own a couple…

Liberal Dem: EPA should flex its powers on climate change

No we should get rid of the EPA..A Federal Agency like so many others htat has way to much power and authority over our lives…Ban them…
Members of Congress—who are about to debate raising the debt ceiling tomorrow—should have paid attention yesterday. The President was very clear that he sees no urgency about reducing the debt and cutting the deficit. In fact, in his second inaugural address, President Barack Obama was honest about his intentions to grow government in order to remake our country along his progressive vision.
It appears it is time to boot the damn Redcoats out again…make it permanent this time!!!

Brits Ban Guns at America’s Largest Gun ShowThe Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show announced last week that America’s largest outdoor sports show will be banning “certain products” from the show.  This week it is becoming clear that they might be regretting that announcement.

Reed Exhibitions, the British company promoting and organizing the event said in a statement “this year we have made the decision not to include certain products that in the current climate may attract negative attention that would distract from the strong focus on hunting and fishing at this family-oriented event and possibly disrupt the broader positive experience of our guests.” . . . please click here for the rest of the post →

Meanderings and Cabela’s..

#1 Son and I went to Cabela’s today as I was looking for a crimping die for my .38 spec/.357 reloads and to ‘look
‘ around.

Wow…was it busy. Gun counter was swarmed and people all over the ammo, reloading etc aisles.

Busy, busy…Walked down to Archery as #1 wanted to show me some crossbows..Quiet down there…

Back to the Gunz stuff…Found my crimping die, picked up some jacked holow points and grabbed a box of 9mm as we left to check out. Priced okay and was brass so made it even a better deal then I have seen.

They did have some aluminum cased studd for a buck less. But cannot use that at the indoor ranges..

Browsed the guns, found a Ruger Challenger used that I checked out. Would not mind having one of them, but not for what they were asking. Cabela’s is a bit higher then others, but still bring them in and sell lots..

So I saw plenty of ammo fo r most every thing there and I did find and interesting semi auto 22 Lr for a decent price..

A JC Higgins. with a nifty retractable sling in the stock. Was sorely tempted…Yes I was…

Had this narrow tube for a scope on it and as it was sold by Sears back in the day, Dad has a Shotgun from them.

On the way home we were talking and #1 was saying he thought this Trillion dollar coin business was pretty stupid..

He stated the Government needs to quit trying to fix things as they cant and they play with monopoly money.

I told him it would be his generation that would be paying for all this and he laughed and told me

“no we won’t Dad, my generation is all going to be on welfare thanks to Buck Ofama!!”

*sniff…Thats my boy…

 

 

 

Friday Facebook..

Friday!!

And we have a wee bit of snow out there and I DO NOT have to travel in it unless I want to!!

And I do, Ahlman’s for sure as I need some supplies, reloading type.

And to wander around their gun racks and see what they have, which is usually lots but will be interesting after all the OMG buying recently…

Me? I have a few I would desire…But only in calibers I already own. SO another carbine in 7.62×39, maybe something in a long gun for both .38/.357 and 9 mm.

We’ll see what we see I guess…

Enjoy…

Gun Stuff and Thursday Grumblings….

Truth the gun grabbing, ban them activists, have caused sales to sky rocket. As stated here In The Trenches and from what I witnessed over the weekend with stops at area gun stores, Fleet (the Man’s Mall) Farm and Cabela’s and the empty slots and the busy clerks.

DaddyBear brings up the BATFE and the looming ammo reclassification bullshit… DO SOMETHING contact the BATFE, your elected Politicritters!!

Lots of rhetoric for or against or indifferent to the NRA’s put cops in schools statement…I say arm the teachers, train them and then lets see how it works with no gun free zones and having our kids protected!! Of course most of the teachers and administration I know would wet themselves over this….

Guns save lives, when used responsibly…

More local folks worried about their 2nd Amendment Rights.

Oh look!! A gun ban that does not work! Or did not! In Kalifornistan anyway…

Charts, facts and truth. What the gun grabbers and leftist LIEberals hate…and most sheeple do not understand..Truth.

If Gregory was denied permission and broke the law. Why is he not in jail? Liberal privilege?

Gun control and genocide…

Gun bans from Democrats
Feinstein D-Ca Just force them to sell.
Moran D-Va. Backed by NRA members, supposedly.
Bring it and bring lots.

I Just Hates It…

When I get a sales flyer from Cabela’s and they have some decent prices on Firearms and Ammo and such goodies coming up..not this sale, the next one..But I could use this!!! You have to get into a secure room just to get to the safe’s around here.

Starting next Saturday….the 18th at their Owatonna store which is only 25 minutes on a bad day from me..

And since we will most likely be here on the 18th, hell we will be, and we would have to drive be Cabela’s to get there..

Well damn….how that happens to work..

Now to round up some cash…

For this w/ 3 mags.

Or this in 9mm, becasue I have a 9mm carry would like something bigger with more mag cap.P-95

Or this…10/22 Charger (not available in Connecticut!! Why? To much for them? Or just eveel looking?))

Or this…10/22 Takedown

those all would be one or the other…sigh…and if approval could be got..

Or this one which I would really like..Gunsite Rifle

 

And this will be priced under 200 bucks…H&R Pardner Pump.

 

Oh the desires, the wants. The lack of rodrammed funds!! Suckage…
