Last Month's Meeting


Jeff Gregorec was once again our guest speaker. His topic was about bullet ballistics, bullet sizes and what he thinks is best for personal defense; hollow point vs. full metal jacket; 380, 357, 9mm, .40 and .45 caliber. Bullet weight was also discussed.

 Full metal jacket is great for practice, but terrible for actual defense.  The jacket keeps the lead from expanding and allows it to penetrate too deeply; and, it can even pass through and hit an unintended target. A hollow point is designed to expand upon contact and the larger size makes a bigger wound cavity.  A bigger wound cavity makes bleed-out faster and stops the threat quicker, which is the whole point.

Chairman's Comments

Hypocrisy seems to be a pretty common denominator with both the so-called main stream media and Hollywood elites. Hollywood elites are idolized and media hosts are revered as if their status makes them almost God in both their fans’ eyes and in their own minds. This is scary when some people are so out of touch with reality that they think these people are allowed to say anything they want and it is gospel to hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people. Hollywood elites are not shy about telling us how to live our lives and who should run our lives, yet so many of them can’t live a decent life themselves. There seem to be very few good marriages and way too much alcohol and drug abuse. Too many of their kids become addicts and/or commit suicide, yet they still think they are better than non-famous people.

 These elites adore people like former President Obama (former…I love to be able to say that) because he is famous, not that he really accomplished anything great. The only thing he really accomplished was to bring in many thousands of undocumented illegals from all over the world; mostly Muslims and by far and large young males, not young kids and females who, in all likelihood would be the real legitimate refugees. He also did a great job causing a huge rift between blacks and whites, allowing the Black Lives Matter extreme hate group to flourish.
