SIG SAUER Introduces Elite Performance Ammunition for Personal Defense

SIG SAUER Inc., designer and manufacturer of the world’s most reliable firearms, introduces its Elite Performance Ammunition line - the company’s first-ever line of premium centerfire pistol ammunition. Designed specifically for personal defense, SIG SAUER Elite Performance Ammunition features a proprietary stacked hollow point bullet - the SIG V-Crown™ Jacketed Hollow Point - for reliable expansion, round after round.
The five introductory calibers and bullet weights are: 90gr .380Auto, 124gr 9mm Luger, 125gr .357SIG, 165gr .40S&W, and 200gr .45Auto.

“Every product SIG SAUER produces will have the same attributes for which our firearms are known around the world - reliability, accuracy, and unparalleled performance,” said Jeff Creamer, SIG SAUER director of product management. “This new Elite Performance Ammunition consistently delivers controlled, uniform expansion and terminal performance, round after round. We are excited to enter the ammunition market and will be adding additional bullet weights for pistols as well as rifle ammunition in the months ahead.”

The proprietary SIG V-Crown stacked hollow point bullet features an additional smaller hollow point cavity behind the main cavity. This design, along with the V-shaped jacket skives, guarantees controlled, uniform expansion at all effective distances and velocities.

Another distinct advantage of the SIG SAUER Elite Performance V-Crown design is a toothed cannelure located halfway up the shank of the bullet. Its location more effectively locks the jacket and the lead/alloy core, providing maximum structural integrity in a jacketed bullet. This is key to achieving maximum weight retention and energy through impact by preventing fragmentation as the bullet mushrooms, ensuring optimal terminal performance. Brass cases are Techni-crom® coated for enhanced lubricity, superior corrosion resistance, and reliable feeding and extraction.

Elite Performance Ammunition is being manufactured in the United States by SIG SAUER to the same exacting standards as the company’s premium pistols and rifles. The SIG SAUER custom designed loading equipment coupled with a proprietary loading process, and a complete hand and visual inspection of every round, continually produces ammunition of the highest quality. In addition to rigorous testing by SIG SAUER engineers, instructors at the SIG SAUER Academy have fired tens of thousands of rounds in the development of this new and exciting line of ammunition.

SIG SAUER Elite Performance Ammunition is now available to numerous large retailers and the company’s SIGnature Dealers throughout the United States.

BLM Lies - The Obamanation Continues

Hi,

I have had people ask me to explain my dad’s stance on this BLM fight. Here it is in as simple of terms as I can explain it. There is so much to it, but here it s in a nut shell.
My great grandpa bought the rights to the Bunkerville allotment back in 1887 around there. Then he sold them to my grandpa who then turned them over to my dad in 1972. These men bought and paid for their rights to the range and also built waters, fences and roads to assure the servival of their cattle, all with their own money, not with tax dollars.
These rights to the land use is called preemptive rights. Some where down the line, to keep the cows from over grazing, came the bureau of land management. They were supposed to assist the ranchers in the management of their ranges while the ranchers paid a yearly allotment which was to be use to pay the BLM wages and to help with repaires and improvements of the ranches.
My dad did pay his grazing fees for years to the BLM until they were no longer using his fees to help him and to improve. Instead they began using these money’s against the ranchers. They bought all the rest of the ranchers in the area out with they’re own grazing fees. When they offered to buy my dad out for a penence he said no thanks and then fired them because they weren’t doing their job. He quit paying the BLM but, tried giving his grazing fees to the county, which they turned down.
So my dad just went on running his ranch and making his own improvements with his own equipment and his own money, not taxes. In essence the BLM was managing my dad out of business. Well when buying him out didn’t work, they used the indangered species card. You’ve already heard about the desert tortoise.
Well that didn’t work either, so then began the threats and the court orders, which my dad has proven to be unlawful for all these years. Now their desperate. It’s come down to buying the brand inspector off and threatening the County Sheriff. Everything their doing at this point is illegal and totally against the constitution of the United States of America.
Now you may be saying,” how sad, but what does this have to do with me?” Well, I’ll tell you. They will get rid of Cliven Bundy, the last man standing on the Bunkerville allotment and then they will close all the roads so no one can ever go on it again. Next, it’s Utah’s turn. Mark my words, Utah is next. Then there’s the issue of the cattle that are at this moment being stolen. See even if dad hasn’t paid them, those cattle do belong to him.
Regardless where they are they are my fathers property. His herd has been part of that range for over a hundred years, long before the BLM even exsisted. Now the Feds think they can just come in and remove them and sell them without a legal brand inspection or without my dad’s signature on it. They think they can take them over two boarders, which is illegal, ask any trucker. Then they plan to take them to the Richfeild Aucion and sell them. All with our tax money. They have paid off the contract cowboys and the auction owner as well as the Nevada brand inspector with our tax dollars. See how slick they are? Well, this is it in a nut shell. Thanks”

Never Leave Home Without It

We carry because we value life.

When a woman, her son and her son’s girlfriend made arrangements to meet with the prospective buyer of their Apple smart phone, they never expected it to transpire the way it did. After making arrangements online, they arrived at the QuikTrip convenience store where the meet-up was to take place. The woman waited in the car for the buyer to show up while her son and his girlfriend entered the store. Three men showed up, one of whom jumped into the woman’s vehicle with a gun. He demanded money and the phone. The woman’s son then exited the store and saw the robbery taking place. When he saw that one of the robbers had a gun, he pulled out his own handgun and fired causing them to flee. All three men were later caught by police.

BLM Land Grab Coming to Texas 

The Red River is the boundary between Texas and Oklahoma…or is it?

Byers, Texas along the Red River — The BLM stole 140 acres of the Tommy Henderson ranch thirty  years ago. They took his land and paid him absolutely nothing. He sued and lost. Now  the BLM is using that court case as precedent to do it again. The problem is, the land they want to seize is property that  ranchers  have a deed for and have paid taxes on for over a hundred years.

The BLM claims that about 90,000 acres (116 miles along the Red River) have never belonged to Texasin the first place. They will seize the land and it will seriously change the boundaries between the two states.

 

Since 1803 when the Louisiana Purchase was completed, there has been a controversy over the boundary between Oklahoma and Texas. The boundary is supposed to be the vegetation line on the south side of the Red River. But the River has moved over time. The problem is the definition of that boundary line- Oklahoma and Texas each use different semantics to define it. And the BLM is finding ways to use the disputed words to give them the ability to seize the  land.

According to the BLM, the Red River is always Accretion (gradual accumulation of sediment) to the south, and always Avulsion  (rapid formation of a new river channel) to the north.  So according to the BLM, the boundary only moves one direction, never in the direction that favors the ranchers. They are looking to re-draw the entire portion of the Red River boundary. That includes 90,000 acres of land along a 116 mile stretch of the river.

Many Thanks to Each and Everyone

Laura, Shannon and the Old Gray Wolf are all back in Texas after celebrating the life of my Dad in Savannah. Words can’t express how much we were touched by all the thoughts, prayers and condolences not only from our many friends here in Texas but from so many all over the world, who we know through this blog. We sincerely thank you all.

Can you imagine my surprise when I looked up and saw my former HSI partner and cube mate Ron Brookshire and his wife Pam at Big Daddy’s wake.  Ron and Pam were both born in the Oak Cliff section of Dallas, where Shannon lives now.  And like Shannon, Savannah is their favorite city to visit.

Ron and Pam are enjoying the beautiful and historic city of Savannah for the entire month. Thank you so much for being there to represent our many friends in Texas.  Just as you love Savannah, Big Daddy was very fond of north Texas and visited here countless times over the past 34 years.

By the way Ron and Pam, if you haven’t stopped by Hillards yet, make sure you do before you leave.  I recommend that you get the Captain’s Seafood Platter AND the famous pull pork dinner with Brunswick stew. You will be able to take some home to enjoy later.  I can’t make a trip to Savannah without enjoying that treat.

Also, we brought Big Daddy’s original birth certificate back to Texas.  All of us were born in St. Joseph’s Hospital,  which is now the site of the Rose of Sharon apartments 322 E. Taylor Street, very near where you are staying.  All of us were baptised at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist.

Big Daddy and his 5 siblings lived at 414 E. President Street, which is part of the Old Fort, and is located acriss the street from The Pirate’s House.  In 1928, that area was Savannah’s Irish ghetto.

They attended the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, one of the most beautiful Catholic Churches in America.

My parents were living off Pennsylvania Ave in Savannah Gardens the Chatham County version of the “The Grove”, when I was born.  That area is adjacent to Big Daddy’s final resting place in the Catholic Cemetery, which is near the Savannah Golf Club, where the Green Grits Fire took place on St. Patrick’s Day in 1986 (as shown on the CBS Evening News and shown on TV in Ireland).

I was raised on Tybee Island (Lewis Ave and 404 4th St.) and attended St. Michael’s School, a four room schoolhouse from 1st-8th grade. The school was built in the 1940’s is still standing just west of Buter Ave and 8th Street, in front of the Rectory, which is behind St. Michael’s Catholic Church, a block from the beach.

Death is nothing at all

Death is nothing at all
I have only slipped away into the next room
I am I and you are you
Whatever we were to each other
That we are still
Call me by my own familiar name
Speak to me in the easy way you always used
Put no difference into your tone
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow
Laugh as we always laughed
At the little jokes we always enjoyed together
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was
Let it be spoken without effort
Without the ghost of a shadow in it
Life means all that it ever was
There is absolute unbroken continuity
What is death but a negligible accident?
Why should I be out of mind
Because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you for an interval
Somewhere very near
Just around the corner
All is well.
Nothing is past; nothing is lost
One brief moment and all will be as it was before
How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again!

Canon Henry Scott-Holland, Canon of St Paul’s Cathedral (1847 - 1918)
