  1. The 4th Annual KRRC Silencer Shoot was a great time. Hats off to Ray of Thunderbeast Arms and Scott of Silencerco. While I can put together a successful event with the help of other club members, it’s the manufacturers and dealers who take part that make it much more memorable. Once again thank you to Ray and Scott. We had 6 remote re-setting AR-500 falling plates at 200 and 110 yards. A large mild steel plate at 200 yards and numerous other steel at 25 and 50 yards. At 2 pm people started showing up, within 30 minutes most of the rifle line was full and stayed packed until about 5:30
  2. A bump to remind everyone about the Silencer Shoot. I'm putting it together to encourage manufacturers to attend and demonstrate their wares. With a good showing by the public we can encourage that the manufacturers keep coming to these events and show us what is new on the market. Hope to see you all there. Randy Bragge (360) 440-5889
  3. It will not be quiet. HIgh powered rifles still make lots of bullet flight noise even when equipped with a good silencer. Eye and ear protection is still required during the event. I’m expecting three manufacturers to show up for the event; Wynakos Machine from Monroe WA, Thunder Beast Arms from Cheyanne WY and Silencerco from West Valley City, UT (their NW rep) . http://wynakosmachine.com/ http://thunderbeastarms.com/ http://www.silencerco.com/ I’ve never seen or heard a Thunder Beast silencer, so I’m really looking forward to it. Wynakos Machine has several interesting products
  4. The event is free to anyone bringing a suppressed firearm, I want to make it free for anyone with any title 2 firearm; especially SBR's. Right now there are only a few registered SBR's in civilian hands in WA, but it would be nice to have them there. Randy
  5. When I was pitching the silencer use bill back in 2011 to my Representative I told her I was interested in the bill to make sound suppressors legal to use. She asked if I meant silencer. I laughed and said yes. I've never hesitated to use the word silencer as it makes it plain that I'm referring to sound suppressors and not flash suppressors. Randy
  6. You don't have to show up. Silencers are what Maxim called his mufflers when he marketed them back in 1905. Silencer and muffler are the legal terms used in the US code. The word silencer is a noun and legal term, not an adjective. I've never read any good reason to not call these firearms silencers. The best arguments I've seen against using the word were "I don't like it" or the equally inane "they don't make a gun silent". It is an educational event that refers to sound suppressors by their legal, historical and commonly accepted name before Hollywood, politicians and anti-gun
  7. I am pleased to announce that the 4th Annual KRRC Silencer Shoot is scheduled for July 19, 2014 from 2pm to 6pm. This is an educational event to demonstrate the limitations and effectiveness of firearm silencers. The shoot is taking place at the Kitsap Rifle and Revolver Club at 4900 Seabeck Highway, Bremerton WA 98312. The club’s website is here; http://www.gunsafety.org/ Below is a small poster I made to publicize the event. It should open up in MS Paint and print out on 8.5x11 inch paper. If anyone is willing to post it at local gun stores or other areas, it would be greatly apprec
  8. 5956 passed the House 95-3, on the way to the gov for his signature. Randy
  9. It seems that it was not actually dead yet. The bill was pulled to the House and passed 95-3. It is on the way to the Inslee for his signature which is likely to happen. The law takes affecct 90 after the session; about June 11th. Randy
  10. SB 5956 is dead. Jinkins will not schedule it for an executive hearing prior to 2/28. Thirteen of us (all pro) showed for the hearing and for the most part it went well. Afterwards one of the other committee members told us there was a chance the Speaker of the House of Representatives (Chopp) might pull the bill for a vote on the House floor, but it is a very slim one. I'm not sure what course of action to take prior to next session; got months to think about it. All I know is we did a damn good job; we just need to figure out how to get Jinkins to support the bill. Jinkins was not able to m
  11. I'm not sure why Overstreet and the others reintroduced the old HB 2099-2012 (SBR/SBS) instead of just getting onboard with Blake to push the SBR only bill which used to be 2098-2012. During 2011-2012 Blake and others sponsored 2098 (SBR only) and 2099(SBR/SBS). 2098 was intended to be a fall back in case 2099 was too much for the House Judiciary Chair to stomach. In the end it was too much and when 2013 came around and the bills had to be re-introduced, the new SBR only bill (1561) got all the support; as in 32 sponsors. most of whom were Democrats until this year. While I would have p
  12. Dogman, Who was the Representative that claimed 5956 was dead? HB 1561 is dead, but the Senate SBR bill is alive and kicking. http://apps.leg.wa.gov/billinfo/summary.aspx?bill=5956&year=2013 SB 5956 has until 2/27 to be passed out of the House Judiciary Committee before it dies. Then it has until 3/7 to be voted on by the House. As long as it is given a pass recomendation by the House Judiciary and Rules sends it to the House floor, it will pass; I'm certain of it. http://www.leg.wa.gov/legislature/pages/cutoff.aspx It should be signed into law by Inslee by 3/13. The g
  13. Go to Olympia on Wednesday 2/26 at 3:30 pm to speak at or attend the House Judiciary Committee hearing. SB 5956 is scheduled for a public hearing and possibly for an executive hearing right after. From there it will go to the Rules Committee then to a vote on the House floor where it should enjoy massive support. Be there, aloha. I am driving from Belfair, if anyone wants a ride, call me. Randy Bragge (360) 440-5889
  14. I just got a WALEG Committee Agenda Update, SB 5956 is scheduled for a public hearing on 2/26 at 3:30 pm. The executive hearing for other bills is scheduled at the same time. In the past I've seen an executive hearing for a bill done right after a public hearing, so it is possible for the bill to get a pass recommendation on the 26th. Thank you Representative Blake. If you can be there, please do so. If anyone wants to carpool to Olympia from the Belfair Bremerton area, I can take two people with me. Randy Bragge (360) 440-5889
