Stars & Stripes Regional IDPA Championship
IMG_20160612_094249[1]Sgt. Bill and I traveled north for the Stars & Stripes Regional at the United States Shooting Academy in Tulsa on Saturday. Bill was in a tough group where 3.45 seconds separated first from fourth place. And despite a slow start, he finished 16th overall in SSP Expert. I started strong, had a hiccup in the middle, and then finished with three bad stages (two were back-to-back Standards Stages) and still managed to finish fourth in ESP Marksman, earning my first trophy since moving to Texas. Thank you to Match Directors Peter Novesky and Cody Ray and all the Safety Officers who worked to put on a smooth, fun match.

Special Guest: Eric Woodward of 199Trust
199Trust hasw completed over 20,000 gun-specific trusts since 2012. Gun trusts give users more flexibility when it comes to use, transfer and transportation of NFA (National Firearms Act) items — short barrel rifles, short barrel shotguns, and suppressors. By creating a NFA Trust, the requirements for fingerprints and photographs are eliminated for any member of the trust, and it gives you more flexibility to purchase, share your items with other members of the trust. The use of a trust gives you what Woodward calls a “degree of separation,” since the items listed in the trust don't belong to you, the individual. They belong to the trust. Regulation 41F goes into effect in July, and it will make trust purchases more like individual purchases. All trust members will have to submit fingerprints and photographs.

Prayer of the Week
We offer our condolences and prayers for all those affected by the horrific terror attack in Orlando, Florida. We pray that our nation will awake from it's politically correct slumber and recognize, finally, the threat we face. We must recognize that the gun is not the problem. It is the evil in the hearts of men who wield them to commit such atrocious acts. O God, the Protector of all that trust in You, without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy, increase and multiply upon us Your mercy that, You being our Ruler and Guide, we may so pass through things temporal that we finally lose not the things eternal; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord. Amen.
