JBM ^ (and Melissa a couple’a days ago)
Yeah. I was gonna do a post on that, bein’ of a tinfoil-hat bent at the time.
That target set was certainly troubling, but I couldn’t find a good handle to support my paranoia. Now, they’ve taken that product page down.
(What? Oh, okay, hand me that roll of tinfoil.)
It ain’t prOn if you can actually play with it.
Well, I can, so … okay, yeah, mebbe it is.

I have a .308AR built on a lower from Tactical Machining of Deland, FL.
On a good day it can shoot .5 moa with 168 gr Gold Medal Match.
T.M. is a local company that makes a little product with their name on it and a lot of product for others. They do the machining work for over 120 other companies.
I dearly wish one of the big boys would step up and side with the people. They could generate a lot of good will within the shooting sports community.
Yesterday was the birthday of Isaac Davis. In November 1774, Acton Massachusetts formed a company of Minutemen, and Isaac Davis was elected captain. Most provincial Minuteman companies, unlike professional soldiers, were not equipped with bayonets for use in close combat, and they typically re-loaded using powder horns, a slow method more suited for hunting than battle.
Davis, a gunsmith, was determined that his company be as well-equipped as British soldiers. Davis employed his skills to equip nearly every man in his company with a bayonet and a cartridge box, allowing his company to re-load as quickly as the British and close with them if required. Finally, Davis emphasized marksmanship, training his company on a shooting range behind his house. His high standards in terms of equipment and training made the Acton company one of the best prepared in Massachusetts, and thus they were selected to lead the advance on Old North Bridge, where he was killed in the first minutes of the Battle of Concord.
Davis saw to it that his citizens were equipped with assault rifles. They carried the day against tyranny.
And that, Uhbama, and Plugs, and Schumer, and Cuomo, is why you have no right to tell us citizens what we need.

They took their page down, but are still selling the products according to a person who talked to the company.
Call it a joke if you want.

Does anyone know/has anyone heard how this will effect these recent announcements by various gummint agencies for those obscene calls for billions of rounds of “practice” ammunition?
I note that there has been no requests for practice targets… what the heck, they have US!

OOPS! That will teach me to read the posts (thanks #3,) before I open my keyboard.
Hey, if Law Enforcement Targets pays a substantial royalty, I’d be willing to forward a couple of pix of me and my Smith and Wesson’s striking threatening poses like walking to the mailbox, crossing a dark parking lot to the drug store, having lunch at a local eatery, or answering a knock at the door at two in the morning. With the economy being what it is, any extra income is a good thing!

LOL. The first time I read that, I thought it said: “Private enterprise takes the bully by the horns.”
I think the re-packaging for 7-round boxes would be cost prohibitive. But maybe they could put the 7 rounds into one of damned-near impossible to open resealable packages they use for cat treats. That would slow them down!!
I get the joke, but I don’t wanna slow-down good cops,
I have nothing but respect and admiration for good cops.
They do a job I don’t have the fortitude or patience for.
I just wanna poke the NY legislature in the eye.
(What? Nah, can’t put their heads on pikes.)
