Click on the link and hear what the Milwaukee County Sheriff says in his Public Service Announcement!
The Sheriff is right. You would think what he said is common sense but most people are passive enough that they need to be told by someone in authority.

Completed my CHL renewal today and during the shooting portion a ladies Springfield .45 cal misfired blowing out the top right side of the grip and splitting it down to the bottom of the magazine well. She had a good size burn, small cut and major bruising to her right hand. She was taken to the hospital where X-rays showed a fractured hand. She told the range master that her husband reloads and likes "them hot". I'm sure that will be a topic of discussion in that house for some time.

He will be permanently in the doghouse. And I suspect everything other than his handloads will be cold as ice for some time.

Click on the link and hear what the Milwaukee County Sheriff says in his Public Service Announcement!
The easiest way to avoid becoming "collateral damage" here in MKE is by avoiding an area bounded by Green Bay Ave on the East, Silver Spring Dr on the North, 76th St on the West and the Menomonee Valley on the South, with another bad area going NW along Appleton Ave to Granville Rd. Another area that has a good amount of violence is the lower South Side.

His comments go along with the adage "When seconds count, the police are only minutes away". No offense to the Police or other Law Enforcement, but criminals tend to be on a schedule which means they won't wait and we can't have officers in front of every house, nor do we need that. What we need is for people to stop reacting violently to situations that don't call for it and for those who have mental illness to be recognized and treated for it, not ignored. I think many of us have known someone who committed a violent act or suicide and whether we expected it, or not, something should have been noticed, by someone.

I don't want it to come to the point of people calling to say that someone they're mad at is crazy, but if someone goes around talking, shouting and muttering when no one else is around, they're either practicing for a play or a bit off-kilter. We don't need the 'Thought Police' either, but if someone talks about doing something bad and begins to stock up on whatever would make it possible, someone has to say/do something about it.

Does her husband run around, beating his chest and yodeling, like Tarzan? What an idiot! His ignorance broke/burned her hand and ruined a weapon. If he ever has to shoot someone, I'll bet he hits someone on the other side of a wall, or the rounds go through the person, instead of stopping, like they should. I suppose he always loads with FMJ, too.

Idiot. You should never load outside the parameters of what the load manual states.
