SHOT Show 2013

SHOT 2013 was an amazing experience for me as a first time attendee.  Were were able to place our 2013 orders (including 223/9mm ammo and primed brass) and evaluate the latest/greatest items from our industry partners.  Exciting items inbound to the Arms Concierge:  3 Barrett M98B rifles in .338 Lapua, the entire Sig line, the M&P Pistol line (including pro series); all Springfield rifles/pistols (including the 1911 loaded series – nearly unobtainable); a ton of Ruger rifles; lots of Glocks!  Arrival dates starting soon!  If you’re interested in placing your order, contact me immediately to put down a deposit.  These firearms will literally last seconds once they are delivered.

 

Now Registered with California Dept. of Justice to Ship to Cal. FFL’s

I am now registered and approved to import firearms into California.  If you or someone you know lives in California, let The Arms Concierge find them a California Compliant firearm and arrange its legal transfer/importation into California.  It’s far too easy to commit a felony with California’s Byzantine gun laws.  We can ship “off-list” Ar-15’s with 10 round magazines and bullet buttons/magazine locks installed under current California law.  No Post-2000 hi cap magazines can ship.

One-Day Record for Background Checks

ONE-DAY RECORD . . . A new single-day record for point-of-sale background checks was established on Black Friday, Nov. 23, when 154,873 were conducted by the FBI National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). That total was nearly 20 percent more than the previous high of 129,166 set on Black Friday last year. Because a federal background check is mandatory for every firearm sold at retail, background check activity serves as an indicator of retail gun sales. Responsible firearms ownership is popular, mainstream and growing.  Americans in record numbers are choosing to own firearms for target shooting, hunting, collecting and personal and home protection. Saturday’s total of 88,419 background checks also earned it a spot among the Top Ten most active single days. The new one-day record was not unexpected, as NSSF pointed out in a recent blog post, given reports of increased sales following the election of President Barack Obama to a second term and hunting license sales increasing.

The Sportsmen’s Act of 2012 — FINAL VOTE EXPECTED MONDAY

Call your U.S. Senators 202-224-3121

The U.S. Senate is scheduled to vote the afternoon of MONDAY, Nov. 26, on the Sportsmen’s Act of 2012 (S.3525).

All hunters, target shooters and firearms owners should call your senators on Monday and urge them to vote YES on the Sportsmen’s Act (S.3525), the most important package of measures for the benefit of sportsmen in a generation.

Do not be confused by the mistaken information put out by one national gun owners organization. S.3525 does not override current laws and thereby enable the seizure of privately-held land.

This historic legislation includes the firearms industry’s top legislative priority, the Hunting, Fishing and Recreational Shooting Protection Act (S. 838) that would clarify that ammunition is excluded from regulation by the Environmental Protection Agency under the Toxic Substances Control Act.

Anti-hunting groups led by the Center for Biological Diversity are suing the EPA to force a ban on traditional ammunition made with lead components that would devastate hunting and shooting sports participation, drive up ammunition prices by almost 200 percent on average and dry up conservation funding.

No less than 46 of the nation’s leading sportsmen and conservation groups including NRA, Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation, Ducks Unlimited, American Sportfishing Association, International Game Fish Association, Center for Coastal Conservation, and Boone and Crockett Club are championing S.3525. This bipartisan legislation is strongly supported by the National Shooting Sports Foundation.

A similar package of bills–the Sportsmen’s Heritage Act of 2012 (H.R. 4089)–was passed by the House in the spring by a bipartisan vote of 276 to 146. Passage of this pro-sportsmen’s legislation will promote, protect and preserve our nation’s hunting, shooting and conservation heritage for generations to come.

Call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121 to urge your senators to SUPPORT the Sportsmen’s Act of 2012. Find complete contact information for your elected officials here.
