    The company says its new ‘Ludicrous’ P100D will be the ‘fastest car in the world’ Tesla Motors Inc. said it is offering its electric vehicles with a battery capable of going up to 315 miles on a charge, the first time a major auto maker has provided that much electric range in a vehicle. The company unveiled new versions of its Model S sedan and Model X sport-utility vehicle with 100 kilowatt-hour batteries; previously the largest battery size was 90 kwh. The upgrade—which Tesla executives said was made possible by increasing the energy density of its battery packs—will allow the...

    I drove up from Yuma to Las Vegas today, to go to the Industry day at the Range tomorrow.  It is nice to be one of the media invited to this event, which most of the industry from around the world uses to highlight and show off the latest in technological improvements and new products.  If I want to take my laptop, they will have media tents to do stories from, complete with wi-fi to blog directly to the net.  Pretty cool stuff. Always nice to run into professional colleagues as well.  I am looking forward to seeing Alan...
  • Bring your (lib) friend to the range

    11/01/2015 12:30:23 PM PST · by AQuietThinkingMan · 70 replies
    I read a lot of opinion and "fact" from the gun-control lobby and its acolytes on Facebook and social media. Much of it is fear based and misleading if not outright falsehoods. Just responding with verified fact isn't likely to change minds because those with a particular mindset will not likely change by reading an article (if they even go so far as to read it.) I think it would be valuable to offer to bring your friend to the range to introduce them to guns and demonstrate to them safety and the proper handling of weapons. For many, I...

    By SHIREE BUNDY COX: I have had people ask me to explain my dad’s stance on this BLM fight. Here it is in as simple of terms as I can explain it. There is so much to it, but here it is in a nut shell. My great grandpa bought the rights to the Bunkerville allotment back in 1887 around there. Then he sold them to my grandpa who then turned them over to my dad in 1972. These men bought and paid for their rights to the range and also built waters, fences and roads to assure the survival...

    Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval on Tuesday blasted the Bureau of Land Management for its "offensive" conduct in a bitter dispute with a farmer whose cattle graze on federal land — including the bureau’s designation of a "First Amendment area" where people can protest. In a scalding statement, Sandoval jumped squarely into the middle of a 20-year-old feud between farmer Cliven Bundy and the BLM — focusing his wrath specifically on a penned-in area that the federal agency considers the only place where people can speak freely. "Most disturbing to me is the BLM's establishment of a 'First Amendment area' that...

    MILTON-FREEWATER The East End Rod & Gun Club’s application to continue operations was approved by the Umatilla County Planning Commission Thursday night, but a number of restrictions were placed on its activities. #The Milton-Freewater club, which has about 800 members, has operated a shooting range since 1994 on 85 acres of leased property, but was never officially approved by the county. #The club initially filed a land use application last fall to expand onto addition land and receive official approval for their current operations, but later withdrew the request for an expansion because the land was no longer available. #Thursday...

    During parade marking anniversary of Iran-Iraq war, army displays missiles capable of hitting Israel, US bases. President Rohani says ready for talks with West, Israel 'trampled all international WMD treaties' Iran paraded 30 missiles with a nominal range of 2,000 kilometers (1,250 miles) Sunday, the first time it had displayed so many with a stated capacity to hit Israeli targets. Iran displayed 12 Sejil and 18 Ghadr missiles at the annual parade marking the anniversary of the outbreak of the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq war. The stated range of both missiles would put not only Israel but also US bases in the...

    ‘Zombie Obama’ Target maker debuts ‘Gun Lobbyist’ and ‘Al Sharpton’ models According to their website, Zombie Industries, the same company whose reactive targets resembling President Obama made a “big splash” at this years National Rifle Association’s convention in Houston, has debuted two new products: Gun Control Lobbyist and ‘Al Sharpton’ target mannequins. Riding the crest of the billion dollar ‘zombie wave’, this San Diego based company has brought shooters life-size targets that bleed for the past couple of years, routinely turning heads at gun shows and offending delicate sensibilities (the target maker recently renamed a female target, “Alexa”, originally called...

    (Reuters) - North Korea fired three short-range missiles from its east coast on Saturday, South Korea's Defense Ministry said, but the purpose of the launches was unknown. Launches by the North of short-term missiles are not uncommon, but the ministry would not speculate whether these latest launches were part of a test or training exercise. "North Korea fired short-range guided missiles twice in the morning and once in the afternoon off its east coast," an official at the South Korean Defense Ministry spokesman's office said by telephone.

It was not clear if the missile was mounted with a warhead or whether the North was planning to fire it or was just putting it on display as a show of force, one South Korean government source was quoted as saying.

    With a glacier-white smile and rapid-fire laugh, Mark Cole greets visitors to his Guns and Ammo Garage, a shooting range where they can travel back to a world of Prohibition-era weapons by firing classic models like the murderous Tommy gun, known, too, as the "Chicago Typewriter." Guns and Ammo Garage, 5155 S. Dean Martin Drive, has partnered with the Mob Museum in downtown Las Vegas to provide a full mob-related experience. From gunshot to mugshot, the partnership pulls from decades of mob history in Las Vegas and beyond. “The Vegas Mob Tour,” Guns and Ammo's package with the museum, is...

    After several preliminary votes on the Sportsmen’s Act (S.3525), the U.S. Senate has decided it will take a final vote on the measure after Thanksgiving break. Thus far, the bipartisan bill, which contains all sorts of goodies for gun owners, hunters, shooters and sportsmen (see priority provisions below), has garnered a ton of support from lawmakers. On Thursday, the Senate advanced the Sportsmen’s Act by an 84-12 preliminary vote, a sign of the bill’s overwhelming popularity. "Sportsmen and -women across Montana and the nation are calling for responsible decisions that strengthen our outdoor economy and secure our outdoor heritage for...

    After a day of testimony from witnesses for the city of Rowlett, Judge Ken Molberg will see for himself whether safety improvements at the Garland Public Shooting Range are enough to protect a neighborhood more than a mile downrange. The city and residents who have had a problem with rifle bullets on their property and the owners of the gun range returned to Dallas’ 95th District Court on Thursday to settle a request for a temporary injunction to shut the rifle portion of the range down. Early in the proceedings, Rowlett City Attorney David Berman challenged Molberg to visit the...

Petarius' ex-wife, Phyllis reportedly had a broken arm after her ex-husband, Dick, pushed her, according to police. Court documents show Phyllis filed a restraining order against Dick in 2010, the same year she filed...

    Gun-friendly Utah is surprisingly queasy when it comes to the kinds of paper targets shooters are allowed to use on state-owned ranges. Well, one state agency is, anyway. Now a Beehive State legislator wants to know why. “’The range belongs to the people,’ Sen. Mark Madsen, R-Eagle Mountain, said. ‘We need to make sure that people are not restricted in their use because of an overstep of authority.’” Or an overabundance of political correctness . . . It is not against state law for human form targets to be used inside the gun-friendly Beehive State, but Utah’s Division of Wildlife...
