Ruger MK 4 Recall!!!

Courtesy of Bayou Resaissance Man

Heads up, Ruger Mark IV owners

Ruger is recalling all of its new Mark IV .22LR pistols manufactured before June 1st, 2017.  You'll find details at the company's Web site.  If you enter your pistol's serial number into the provided box, it'll tell you whether or not your gun is subject to the recall, and provide further information.

Ruger's promising a free magazine with every pistol sent back for repair, which is nice of them.  Even so, I'm glad Ruger is standing behind their products (as one would expect from a company like that).

Advertising on the Gun Blog Black List

For all the SEO Merchants out there, please stop sending me e-mails asking to "Buy" a "Sponsored" Post on the GBBL.

The GBBL DOES NOT accept paid advertisements or sponsored posts.

Also please stop asking me to add your "COMMERCIAL" Website that has NO blog to the GBBL.

If you only have a blog that you might update 3 times in the last year but the rest of your site is nothing but trying to sell your products, you will not be listed.

I'm sorry for having to post this, but after getting 14 e-mails in 7 days from 14 different SEO and "Advertisers", I'm tired of typing back that the GBBL doesn't accept "posts" paid or otherwise.  Especially when I have ALREADY posted this information: Guest Posting - For The Record

And remember, if you want your blog listed in the "Regional Directory", please e-mail me your information.

Walther Recall!!!


Re: Important Safety Recall – MARCH 2017 Walther CCP Pistols
Walther Arms has identified a potential condition in Walther CCP pistols that could potentially cause it to discharge if dropped whether the manual safety is engaged (on) or disengaged (off).  The safety of our customers is our paramount concern so we have voluntarily initiated this recall because of the possibility of a drop-fire occurring.
Please do not load or fire your Walther CCP pistol and contact us immediately to arrange to have your pistol upgraded free of charge.

If your pistol has already been upgraded, there will be a dot milled onto the back side of the magazine opening.  
The upgrade will be done at no charge to you.  For free shipping, please enter your information here, and complete the online form, making sure to include the serial number.  After completion of the form a confirmation email will be sent including shipping information.
Please note:  The serial number is located on the right side of the pistol (circled in red below)

Please submit your information here – http://www.waltherarms.com/ccp-information-submission/.

Please check this website and all safety notices on a regular basis for current information about your firearms.  You may also contact us by phone at 1-866-503-3389, by email at ccprecall@WaltherArms.com or by mail at Walther Arms, Inc., 7700 Chad Colley Boulevard, Fort Smith, AR  72916.

The current time to repair your CCP is approximately 3 weeks from the time we receive it.


If you've EVER shot at Peacemaker National Training Center in West Virginia, this heads up is for you...
PNTC Members and Customers,
We would like to thank each of you for being members and customers of PNTC and we look forward to your continued support and use of the complex. We cannot stress enough how much we appreciate and need your continued support.
We feel compelled inform our members and customers regarding a recent court ruling related to PNTC’s private customer information. Specifically, a resident of Virginia has filed a nuisance complaint against PNTC alleging that noise from operation of the shooting range is a nuisance, and therefore interferes with his property rights. This complaint was filed in Berkeley County Circuit Court and is before Circuit Court Judge Grey Silver, styled Ben and Diane Goldstein v. Peacemaker Properties, LLC and Peacemaker National Training Center, LLC, Civil Action No. 15- C-520. Court documents filed in the case are public record and may be reviewed through the Circuit Clerk’s office.
Although our legal team pointed out that Berkeley County, WV specifically exempts shooting ranges from their noise ordinance and prevents nuisance claims against shooting ranges, the complaint was filed and not dismissed by the court. You may also access the Berkeley County Noise Ordinance at this link: http://www.berkeleycountycomm.org/docs/ordinances/amendnoiseord0409.pdf
Despite numerous motions and requests to reconsider, and numerous mediation efforts with the plaintiff, the court has  ordered PNTC to produce the below documents and other private records under a “Protective Order.” Under this order, the plaintiffs and their counsel are legally permitted to access the following information:

-     All member files
-     All waivers from any person who has accessed PNTC, to include all law enforcement, federal agency personnel, military personnel and foreign military personnel names
-     All shooting competition files and lists
-     All training information and lists
-     All customer waivers
-     Identities of all persons who have used PNTC ranges
-     All ATF & NFA records (to include Forms 4473 and ATF bound book information)
Unfortunately, PNTC is unable to answer additional questions or comment on this matter at this time. Please know that we have done everything in our power to protect your private information, but we must comply with the court order.
Again, we look forward to seeing you soon and thank you for your support and understanding. Thank You,
Cole McCulloch – President
Peacemaker National Training Center
This is NOT good, as there is no telling how that information will be used or disseminated... And if I remember correctly, they will have name, address, phone number and caliber of weapon fired... Dammit...
