Cartridge Reloading

I apologize for not keeping you better informed  but for those that are interested, I have  started a series on reloading on The Shooting Bench.
The first one is HERE. There is also an interesting interview with a Forest Service Public Information Officer on this show.
The second in the reloading series is HERE  There is some commentary on suicide and the hunt for the "former militia leader" in Montana.
The 3rd in the series is HERE. This series will likely go into next week and you can stay caught up by going to my ARCHIVES or listen live through the Shooting Bench link below.

Don't forget our rally on Independence Day! Congressman Steve Pearce will be speaking about noon plus we have some other good speakers. Reduced price training is happening on the 2nd and 3rd. Handgun all day on the 2nd and a half day rifle, half day shotgun on the 3rd. These classes are filling fast if you are interested. Thanks for your support!

Just Measures Radio

 The new station is up and running and doing VERY well! All of my archives of the new show are now available at: TSB Archives and I am going to do my best to keep them up daily. We are still having some mild sound issues and were a little rocky getting off the ground but it's pretty smooth now. Older archives are at: Podcasts from 2007 to 2010  And the archives from Aug. 2010 to April 2011 are here: Newer podcasts
I appreciate everyone's patience but we are locked and loaded again!

Independence Day? Not so much anymore!

Time is short! What better time to have a "Restore the Constitution Rally" than Independence Day? That day still holds the same historic value that it always has but it doesn't apply to our current life nearly as much.
The Founding Fathers would be ashamed of us if they could see what we have done to their country! 
Get your priorities in order. This Independence Day will not be the time for fishing and picnicing. We need to show numbers! We need to let the tyrant know that we are serious about restoring the values and liberties that we once had.

Time: July 4, 2011 from 9am to 3pm
Location: Luna, NM
Street: 217 Tallhouse Ln.

Event Description

The 4th of July, 2011 will bring you the 2nd Annual  Open-Carry, Restore the Constitution Rally at Southwest Shooting Authority in Luna, NM. The event itself will be held on Monday the 4th from 9:00am to around 3:00pm.
Speakers, music, contests and lots of fun will be here for the having. Friday and Saturday nights will be used for socializing and solving the world's problems. Food and drink will be available both nights. Local musicians will be pickin' and grinnin' on Saturday night.
Cope Reynolds will be the keynote speaker followed by former Catron County Sheriff candidate Chuck Thompson. We are delighted to announce the privilege of having NM 2nd District Congressman Steve Pearce attend our rally and speak to us at noon. Other speakers are to be announced

Here's some other particulars:
Weapons are welcome! However, there are rules that must be followed. Common sense safety rules will be strictly adhered to. Loaded or unloaded, handguns will remain holstered at all times. Long guns will remain unchambered and slung at all times. If you need to do something to your gun or want to show someone something about it that requires it being handled, there will be range personnel and a safe area for that reason.

THERE WILL BE NO ALCOHOL ALLOWED ON THE PROPERTY AT ANY TIME! THIS IS A ZERO-TOLERANCE POLICY. YOU WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE IMMEDIATELY IF THIS RULE IS VIOLATED!

Primitive camping is 3 miles away. This campground has toilets but no hook-ups.
Motels and nice RV parks are 14 miles away. A couple of them will offer small discounts for those attending. It's not much but with gas being so high, anything helps.
There is a small RV park with full and partial hook-ups right next door. They only have a few spaces so first-come, first-served.

For those that want to come early and enjoy the comraderie of like-minded folks and the beautiful country here, there will be some very reduced-price defensive firearms training available on Friday and Saturday. Friday will be handgun training and Saturday will be 1/2 day rifle and 1/2 day shotgun. Contact us via e-mail or call 575-547-2547 for more info. Pre-registration is required
