The majority decision today necessarily leads to the conclusion that individuals who elect to carry firearms forego other constitutional rights, like the Fourth Amendment right to have law enforcement officers “knock-and-announce” before forcibly entering homes. . . . Likewise, it is difficult to escape the conclusion that individuals who choose to carry firearms necessarily face greater restriction on their concurrent exercise of other constitutional rights, like those protected by the First Amendment.

The judge that espoused this needs to be schooled in American values.

That said, it is my understanding that (at least in Georgia) a concealed carry permit means that one must maintain concealment unless and until one intends to used the device in self-defense, else to remove it for some practical reason (e.g., to enter a gun-restricted area like a court house). If the people were in a vehicle then they were likely well within their rights to be examining the firearm. States differ on it, but some states allow open carry in all public places (except restricted locations of course).

Goal: Wind Practice

Environment: Party cloud, breeze from the West. Ground soppying wet after Noah Rain all night.

Equipment: 7.62(20) S, NF 4-16x T3, M118LR, RRS


Activity: Rolled out to setup area in trees on West side of hill 1309. Could only see top boards of targets at 475yds and 620yds ...
So moved halfway up the hill and then could see top half of all steel targets visible from this position

Est. cross wind at 6 MPH. Held 3 up and 6 MPH left. First rd hit on 500yd target. Aimed at face, heard hit, could not see splotches on target. Switched to 640yd target.

Cattle were crossing the LOS and had to wait. Grandma took her time. Wind seemed higher, held 4.8 up and held for 8 MPH. Heard hit. Aimed for face heard hit.

Rolled to targets.

500yd target
The face shot was a miss.

640yd target
Both were hits, both on right edge.


Score was 3+0+3+6 = 11/15 = 0.
Overall the wind practice score, since record keeping began back in April for this scoring method ...

120/148 = 0.81 for day

11.5/15 = .77 for night

I did not have the kestrel, so I was using guestimatation. I seemed to consistently under estimate by 2-3 MPH.

Hits on the edge of the target might seem like barely hits and they are. But from a scoring perspective, there are only
two types of hits. Hits and misses. These are IPSC (2/3) a 6x6 face on top of a 12x18 body.

The goal is first rd hits.

Go trumpf Go !!!
