Troy Defense (Troy), a division a Troy Industries, Inc., was deeply dismayed and shocked to hear through national media outlets that Dick’s Sporting Goods (DSG) made the decision to stop selling the Troy Carbine along with other modern sporting rifles. DSG did not contact or inform Troy of this decision prior to notifying the public. Nor was Troy informed by DSG that cancellation letters were being sent to customers, set to arrive on Christmas Eve (a day Troy was closed).
Murdoc didn’t watch the news tonight, but he’s positive, positive, that this was the lead story:
An interesting fact somewhat buried is that when you combine the number of people who said a solution would be ‘very effective’ and ‘somewhat effective’, more people favored “arming at least one school offic” officia” over “banning the sale of semi-automatic weapons” by 64 to 63.
Asked about the Fast and Furious program at the Univision forum on Thursday, President Obama falsely claimed that the program began under President George W. Bush.
“I think it’s important for us to understand that the Fast and Furious program was a field-initiated program begun under the previous administration,” the president said. “When Eric Holder found out about it, he discontinued it.”
Fast and Furious began in October of 2009. Fact.

No matter what state regulations dictate, college and university officials, faculty, staff, students, parents, and everyday taxpayers all have something to say about whether or not concealed handguns and other weaponry should be allowed on campus. Compelling arguments exist along the spectrum, but specific schools in particular seem to pop out whenever the subject materializes — sometimes, of course, for matters outside their control.
New Pat Rogers DVD from Panteao:
Panteao Productions introduces the latest DVD title from Pat Rogers: Intro to the Shoot House. The Shoot House is an alien environment, and for a lot of reasons. Most of us receive our training on a Square Range. In the Shoot House life is dramatically different. Targets may be anywhere. That means 360 degrees, as well as up/ down. You may also be with other people that are moving with you. Not to mention low light conditions. Pat Rogers, founder of EAG Tactical and retired Marine and Sgt in NYPD, takes you through all the fundamentals and techniques needed to build a solid foundation for shoot house work. Pat reviews team safety, making ready, movement in the house, dealing with doors and doorways, hallways, entering a room, communication, low light conditions, multiple room entry, and more. . If your line of work puts you in harm’s way and you need to be able to safely clear a house as part of a two man team, this is a must have video.
The DVD will begin shipping in October and will also be available online for Panteao subscribers. Pre-Orders are being accepted now on the Panteao Productions website.
The impressive line of Panteao videos continues to grow.
Here is an update from the Michigan Coalition for Responsible Gun Owners on the legislation to do away with the obsolete permit to purchase for handguns in the Wolverine State:
House Bill 5225, legislation that would eliminate the state handgun “permit-to-purchase” and registration requirements, is currently stalled in the Michigan Senate. The reason for this delay stems from opposition by the Michigan State Police and Governor Rick Snyder’s office asking the state Senate leadership to “hold” H.B. 5225.
In June, this package of bills passed in the Michigan House of Representatives by an overwhelming 74 to 36 vote. It has also passed in the Senate Judiciary Committee and now awaits consideration by the State Senate. All indications are that H.B. 5225 enjoys supermajority support in the Senate. There is no doubt that the state Senate will pass H.B. 5225 by a wide margin when they vote on it.
However, Michigan’s first-term Governor has now asked leaders in the Senate to hold this bill, delaying and preventing critical and final action on this important Second Amendment legislation. Because the Michigan Legislature has few remaining working days before the election, this stall tactic will almost guarantee the bill’s demise.
Murdoc has contacted his reps and Governor Snyder. Now we just wait and see.
A competition among participating Texas counties to kill the most feral hogs and to educate the most residents about the animals starts Monday, and Hays and Caldwell counties are getting ready.
Both have offered a $2 bounty per feral hog tail to encourage people to participate in the program, a grant competition administered by the Texas Department of Agriculture.
Counties can collect points during the Hog Out County Grant Program from Oct. 1 to Dec. 31 for the number of feral hogs taken and the number of people who participate in an educational course to learn about the animals.
I think we’ll be seeing more programs like this.
