I come home to the new issue of American Rifleman. Within its pages are:

1) how to assemble an AR upper.

2) a review of the LMT CQB MRP rifle.




Moderators, Delete is this is a dupe.

FUDDS DON'T JOIN THE NRA!!!!

They think it's "too extreme".


The NRA is not a fudd organization.

Yes, and besides the articles on the EBRs, the prez of the NRA is one the cover- a white Jewish woman holding a wheelgun. What's not to like?

I think the NRA is sloooowly realizing that the Fudds are not the future of the RKBA in America (indeed, if they ever were).

If I recall correctly, the AR upper was assembled to fire the .204 Ruger round, presumbly for varmint hunting.

The National Rifle Association was I believe begun as an organization to promote civilian marksmanship. They believed we should be a nation of riflemen. Their marksmanship programs primarily involved bolt action military firearms in the beginning and also 22 caliber training rifles. It was mostly after WWII that they got more heavily involved in hunting arms.

Maybe they should forget about their fudd audience and concentrate heavily on community shooting activites to try and get more average Americans involved in shooting as a recreation. The average American is not a hunter. We hunters are a minority of sportsmen, some of which don't care to get involved in 2A issues. The NRA should change it's focus to recreational shooting.

Best Regards,

Sandy Froman was at the ASRPA Washington's birthday High Power shoot last weekend in Phoenix shooting her AR15. IIRC she scored a 430 or similar. I didn't do nearly as well. Her boyfriend brought his cannon along for the opening ceremony.

Have you been reading American Rifleman lately? I dont remember the last time I read anything about hunting in there. Everything has been about handguns, EBR's, ect. Yes the NRA still targets hunters, but it would be dumb to leave them completely out of the mix, as hunters have alot of a very important tool in the lobbying process... $$$.

Plus, hunting, although not in near as much threat as the RKBA, needs to be protected from harmfull legislation as well.

There won't be many hunting articles in "American Rifleman", as they have another publication called "American Hunter". I doubt there are many / any "shooter" articles in "American Hunter" either.

Sorry, I don't read hunting magazines.

I didn't know .223 was a varmint round also.

I stand corrected.
