Holly and Dixie 

Kerodin - Fight To Your Weapon 

Friday October 3rd 2014

10 - 4

Holly and I intend to arrive Thursday evening with the TOC.  While it will obviously still be a work in progress, we’ll open it up for people to walk-through over the weekend.

We will be hosting our Fight to your Weapon CQB course from 10a – 4p on Friday.  Alumni and III Society Members train free.  All others pay $208 for the course, of which ½ will be donated to Brock to help support his wonderful event.  If you are paying for the CQB course, please send the money directly to Brock.

Note: If you have been through the course already, be ready for more than a few surprises, new techniques, as well as a refresher, and a serious training pace.  If you will be joining us on training day please bring your primary sidearm holster, and email me with the details of your primary sidearm – I want to have Blue Gun trainers on-hand that properly fit your rig.  First-time students will get the standard course; you should wear your primary sidearm holster but no need to email me your sidearm detail.  Remember – no firearms in class – secure them in your campsites/cars/whatever.

Saturday I will talk for ½ hour about the state of the III, our various projects, and the need for efficiency and focus in our efforts going forward.  I will hand out a few awards, talk about the III Society, and leave a few minutes for Q & A.  When H and I leave the PatCon we expect to head west to Idaho, finally.  The Studio has been remodeled and needs just a few finishing touches and we’ll be opening the doors.  Any III Patriot ever in the Northern Idaho area will have a welcoming party if you seek one.

     .223 PMC BRONZE RIFLE 55 GRAIN FMJ # 223A (1000 ROUNDS)

 

The vast majority of modern homes constructed in the United States offer very little if any protection from bullets. Plywood, drywall and studs don't have the ability to stop pistol rounds much less high powered rifle rounds. How would you provide ballistic protection for yourself or your family in a hostile situation? In this video I test the ability of 12 inches of packed dirt, in a 5 gallon bucket, to stop a .223 PMC Bronze 55 Grain.

Those H&Rs are built like tanks.  The machine work, brazings, and metallurgy is very good.  Quiqhar Arsenal (Hawk Industries) is the official shotgun supplier for most of China's police forces and military.  Remington was impressed enough with the quality, that they allowed their H&R brand to be stamped into the guns.  This was mainly done to harness some profit, which would've otherwise ripped them off as a Polytech or Norinco brand guns.  Most parts are interchangeable with the 870 except the barrel.  The barrel extension is what's different.

  2. Brock,
    You should up the entry fee to $25 or $30 to make sure the costs are covered. I don't think the increase would affect attendance. People would be glad to pitch in a bit more.

    1. Thanks and it would probably have to be that at least if we had an actual Pig Pickin' where they bring the whole hog and finish cooking it just before we eat as they have now upped the minimum to 100 for this and we usually only have around 70, and some of them are young who pay nothing and others pay only half, so we lose on them. Plus, they cannot give us a quote until they actually buy the pig. At any rate, pulled pork is close to the same thing and we should still be able to keep it about $20 without losing much. There used to be no minimum, then it went to 30, 50, 75 and now 100 because of the increase in whole hog prices. At any rate, all are welcome to chip in more for the Dixieland Beer Fund if they like. :)

  28. Brock thank you for a wonderful day. It was good to meet you all. In all the comradery was great as was the food, I look forward to the next gathering. Thanks to all the speakers that put forth some very insightful and thought provoking information. Not sure what happened with K and H, I was looking forward to seeing the TOC.

    I will enjoy shooting my new 1911 and will make sure I put all that 5.56 ammo to good use.... :-)

    Thanks Again Brock for inviting us to Dixieland.
