Lead Ammunition Restrictions in Effect in California

Sat, 08/29/2015 - 14:33

The National Rifle Association (NRA) and our affiliate the California Rifle and Pistol Association (CRPA) recently alerted California hunters that the first phase of AB 711 took effect on July 1, 2015, drastically expanding California’s restrictions on lead ammunition for hunters. Prior to AB 711, it was already required to use ammunition that has been certified as non-lead by the California Department of Fish & Wildlife when taking certain animals within the “California condor zone.” AB 711 applies those restrictions to all ammunition when taking any wildlife throughout California.

Maintain Proper Distance Off-Road

Sat, 08/08/2015 - 12:04

Maintaining the proper distance between your vehicle and the one ahead can be tricky. Speeds vary, the terrain changes frequently, and visibility can drop quickly.

You want to stay close enough to the vehicle in front so you can learn from it but not tailgate and risk causing an accident or worse: not be able to read the terrain for yourself.

Even experienced drivers find it challenging to monitor trail conditions and nearby vehicles. Newer drivers tend to focus so much on the vehicle ahead that they end up tailgating—in essence, glued to his backside. In the process, they lose sight of the trail and any obstacles or difficult conditions. More important they lose track of the vehicle behind, which can throw off the entire caravan.

Unhacking the hacked Jeep

Wed, 07/22/2015 - 11:54

While the hacking of the government computers at Office of Personnel Management have received headline attention, this little hack attempt against the computer controlling a vehicle seems trivial - unless your are the vehicle owner.  The below news is from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles.  As a corporation, they are stepping up and being proactive to ensure the computer systems in their products are safe.

ExtremeTerrain’s Jeep Wrangler JK Build

Thu, 06/25/2015 - 20:55

ExtremeTerrain has recently begun a complete overhaul of a unmodded 4 door JK Wrangler. For the first phase of this upgrade, ExtremeTerrain went for a full body armor upgrade. The mods not only give the JK a unique and rugged look, but they also go a long way towards getting the Jeep ready for some serious off-roading.

Blue: For Earth, For Humanity, For Freedom

Tue, 06/23/2015 - 16:50

I have reviewed an interesting DVD presentation Blue: For Earth, For Humanity, For Freedom.  I found the presentation very interesting and very appropriate considering the current times where political correctness is bowing to the high priestess of “climate change”.

To put things in perspective, California is in midst of a multi-year drought and numerous measures are being enacted to conserve water.  The western U.S. Is in a 15 year “drought” cycle with declining rainfall and snow pack within the entire Colorado River drainage system.
