Off Target

Looks like Christopher properly celebrated Buy A Gun Day. Good luck with your new piece. I hope you got one of the newer models with the SRT (short reset trigger). Get yourself a little can of TSI-301 and some Slide Glide Lite, run about 500 rounds through it at the range, using proper barrel break in procedure, and your new toy will soon be in great shape. And remember, always run the brushes in from the chamber end.

Just be careful what targets you choose. Political Correctness now rules the firing line.


Florida Cop Fired Over “Trayvon” targets

BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. — Officials with Port Canaveral said a police sergeant has been fired after he brought shooting targets resembling Trayvon Martin to a firearms training session.

Sgt. Ron King was terminated from the police department on Friday, according to officials.

Port officials said King brought two shooting targets which had images resembling Trayvon Martin on them to a firearms training session on April 4.

The image of someone wearing a dark hoodie with a drink can in their hand has become a well-known symbol in the death of 17-year-old Martin. The unarmed teen was shot and killed in Sanford last year.

King was supervising the training session and asked if anyone wanted to use them.

“He had a target in the back of his car and offered it to two other officers with the port,” said said John Walsh, CEO of Port Canaveral. “They rejected his offer and told him to put it back in the car.”

Officials will not say if the targets were actually used by King.

“Whether his act was hatred or stupidity, none is tolerable,” said Walsh.

But King told a different story in a YouTube video he posted, saying, “I find that people are accusing me of doing something that I just plain did not do.”

King said he brought the targets to demonstrate what officers should not shoot at, and claims anyone saying otherwise is trying to further their own political agenda.


So a mere drawing of a hoodie wearing target is assumed to be a vile and racist thing. And yet, at the very same time ...



DHS Spends $2 Million On “Non Traditional” Training Targets

Photo Quality “No More Hesitation” targets exclusively feature white citizens with guns

A provider of “realistic” shooting targets to the Department of Homeland Security and other federal agencies has created a line of “non-traditional threat” targets that include pregnant women, mothers in playgrounds and elderly American gun owners.

Law Enforcement Targets, Inc. is a 21-year designer and full service provider of training targets for the DHS, the Justice Department and thousands of law enforcement agencies throughout the country.

The company’s website offers a line of “No More Hesitation” targets ”designed to give officers the experience of dealing with deadly force shooting scenarios with subjects that are not the norm during training.” The targets are, “meant to help the transition for officers who are faced with these highly unusual targets for the first time.”

The targets include “pregnant woman threat,” “older man with shotgun,” “older man in home with shotgun,” “older woman with gun,” “young school aged girl,” “young mother on playground,” and “little boy with real gun.”

Why are top training target suppliers for the government supplying the likes of the DHS with “non-traditional threat” targets of children, pregnant women, mothers in playgrounds, and elderly American gun owners unless there is a demand for such items?

This is particularly alarming given the fact that the Department of Homeland Security has purchased roughly 2 billion rounds of ammunition over the course of the last year, enough to wage a near 30 year war.

In comparison, during the height of active battle operations in Iraq, US soldiers used 5.5 million rounds of ammunition a month.

The DHS also purchased no less than 7,000 fully automatic assault rifles last September, labeling them “Personal Defense Weapons.”

The fact that targets of armed pregnant women, children, mothers in playgrounds, and American gun owners in general are being represented as “non traditional threats” “for the first time” is deeply concerning given the admitted preparations for civil unrest undertaken by Homeland Security as well as other federal agencies.

The company behind controversial shooting targets that include images of children, pregnant women and elderly gun owners received almost $2 million dollars in contracts from the Department of Homeland Security.

Minnesota-based Law Enforcement Training Inc., which brags of its close relationship with the DHS and thousands of law enforcement agencies, has stoked outrage after producing shooting targets which feature “non traditional” threats amidst banal environments such as a pregnant woman in a nursery, a mother in a school playground and a little boy.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
