12-YEAR-OLD TAKES DOWN NEW SOUTH CAROLINA RECORD BUCK

It’s not official yet, but this sure looks like the new South Carolina record buck to us. 

Twelve-year-old Justin Hodges from South Carolina might have just shot the biggest buck ever taken in the state. His buck green-scored at 178 inches, and as of now, it tops the previous buck of 176 inches standing since 1994.

Justin and his father had seen the big buck back in October during bow season but never got a shot. It wasn’t until they set up on an old road bed near the area where the saw the buck before that fate opened its window and offered an opportunity.

South Carolina Record Buck

“Justin already had the gun pointed down the roadbed and when the deer stopped a couple of seconds later, he pulled the trigger, but nothing happened,” his father said in an interview.

As most of us know, when a big buck shows up, strange things happen. As in this case, Justin forgot the safety. After realizing his mistake, another pull of the trigger dropped it in its tracks.

Measuring out to 19 total points, 12-inch brow tines, 13-inch G2’s, 13-inch G3’s, and very thick mass, it stands a very solid chance of beating the record.

Congrats Justin! What a deer!

Trump Releases His 2nd Amendment Policies, And It’s Making Millions Angry

It comes as no surprise that President Elect Trump stands behind the 2nd Amendment, and it’s also no secret that Clinton would have passed more restricted gun control legislation. What though, does Trump have planned while in office?

Released on his website, Trump has outlined the route he wants to take in regards to the 2nd Amendment, personal protection and concealed carry. Let’s take a look at his points below, and leave a few comments to discuss:

  • Defend the Second Amendment of our Constitution. The right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed upon. Period.

There isn’t much to be said about his first point, except that he’s steadfast in protecting the 2A with his new-found power.

  • Nominate United States Supreme Court justices that will abide by the rule of law and the Constitution of the United States that includes upholding the Second Amendment.

Having people on your side in the Supreme Court will go miles when 2A issues are at hand. Trump plans to see this through and create a group that supports and defends.

  • Enforce the laws on the books. We need to get serious about prosecuting violent criminals.

Instead of slapping the wrist of violent criminals, Trump plans to shut down early release and parole for these violent people.

  • Expand and bring back programs like Project Exile and get gang members and drug dealers off the street. When we do, crime will go down and our cities and communities will be safer places to live.

To the points above, this project put violent criminals in front of a federal court in Richmond, VA and gave them a 5-year sentence with no early release or parole if they used a gun during their crime.

  • Empower law-abiding gun owners to defend themselves. Law enforcement does a tremendous job, but they can’t be everywhere all of the time.

Here’s where it really speaks to the concealed carry community. To Trump, as well us, the ability to defend inside and outside of the home is crucial. Putting emphasis on concealed carry, Trump wants to make it better and easier for citizens to obtain their permits to carry a firearm.

  • Fix our broken mental health system. All of the tragic mass murders that occurred in the past several years have something in common – there were red flags that were ignored. We can’t allow that to continue. We must expand treatment programs, and reform the laws to make it easier to take preventive action to save innocent lives. Most people with mental health problems are not violent, but just need help, and these reforms will help everyone.

This.

  • Defend the rights of law-abiding gun owners:
    • Military bases and recruiting centers – to have a strong military, we need to allow them to defend themselves
    • National right to carry – should be legal in all 50 states
    • Background checks – we need to fix the system we have and make it work as intended. What we don’t need to do is expand a broken system.
    • Gun and magazine bans – the government has no business dictating what types of firearms good, honest people are allowed to own

In a Trump world, members of the military would be allowed to carry firearms on bases and recruiting centers, unlike now. We’ve seen bad things happen before, and it only makes sense to allow MEMBERS OF THE MILITARY to properly arm themselves while at home.

Another point of importance is the National right to carry, or National Reciprocity. This essentially says that if a person has a concealed carry permit in one state, that permit should be recognized in all other states across the Country. Just like a drivers license. Except, you know, a drivers license is a privilege while carrying a firearm is a right.

Fix, not expand, is what Trump proposes for the Federal Background Check system. Having the ability to communicate with records more efficiently will ensure a smoother process for all.

And finally, gun and magazine bans are out-of-this-world ridiculous. Being a New Yorker, Trump is well aware of the NY Safe Act which attempted to restrict magazine capacity to 7 rounds. That didn’t fly, but a 10-round limit was imposed and all magazines with a higher capacity were deemed illegal.

In Trump’s words, “Gun and magazine bans are a total failure. That’s been proven every time it’s been tried. Opponents of gun rights try to come up with scary sounding phrases like “assault weapons”, “military-style weapons” and “high capacity magazines” to confuse people. What they’re really talking about are popular semiautomatic rifles and standard magazines that are owned by tens of millions of Americans. Law-abiding people should be allowed to own the firearm of their choice. The government has no business dictating what types of firearms good, honest people are allowed to own.”

There isn’t any doubt that millions of Americans will fight these ideas but from where I’m sitting, they all look logical and sane.

With a now Republican-lead government, many of these ideas could become reality shortly after Trump takes office.

What’s your take? Do you agree with all of these points? Would you do anything differently?

Possible new world record elk shot in Montana

Officials with the Boone and Crockett Club and the Pope & Young Club say a Montana hunter may have bagged a new world record elk.

In a press release issued on the club’s Facebook page, the group said the elk had a green score measurement of 429-6/8 net and 448-4/8 gross.

The current Pope and Young Club’s World’s Record typical American elk, taken in Arizona in 2005, scores 412-1/8 points.

“This bull may well be the largest typical American elk taken in the last 48 years,” said Boone and Crockett’s Director of Big Game Records, Justin Spring.

The elk was taken by a resident hunter on a solo hunt early in the archery season.

It took the hunter, who at this time prefers to remain anonymous, a couple days to pack the bull out. He then took the bull to a taxidermist and “a rough score confirmed it was time to call an experienced Boone and Crockett Official Measurer.”

The antlers need to dry for 60 days before an official score can be made, the release states.

Trump Releases His Plan for 2nd Amendment… Leaves Millions Furious

One common criticism of billionaire businessman and presidential candidate Donald Trump is that he far too often speaks in vague generalities and rarely offers specifics about where he stands on the issues. That is no longer the case, at least regarding his stance on gun rights and the Second Amendment, after Trump released his official policy position on his campaign website.

“The Second Amendment to our Constitution is clear. The right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed upon. Period,” the position paper began.

Trump went on to explain that the right to keep and bear arms is a right that pre-exists both the government and the Constitution, noting that government didn’t create the right, nor can it take it away.

He also rightly denoted the Second Amendment as “America’s first freedom,” pointing out that it helps protect all of the other rights we hold dear.

Advertisement – story continues below

In order to protect and defend that right, Trump proposed tougher enforcement of laws that are already on the books, rather than adding new gun control laws.

Citing a successful program in Richmond, Virginia, that sentenced gun criminals to mandatory minimum five-year sentences in federal prison, Trump noted that crime rates will fall dramatically when criminals are taken off the streets for lengthy periods of time.

Trump also proposed strengthening and expanding laws allowing law-abiding gun owners to defend themselves from criminals using their own guns, without fear of repercussion from the government.

Noting that many of the recent high-profile shooters had clear mental problems that should have been addressed, Trump proposed fixing our nation’s broken mental health system by increasing treatment opportunities for the non-violent mentally ill, but removing from the streets those people who pose a danger to themselves and others.

Trump would do away with pointless and ineffective gun and magazine bans and suggested fixing the current background check system already in place, rather than expanding a broken system.

Furthermore, Trump proposed a national right to carry, a national concealed carry reciprocity law that would compel states to recognize the concealed carry permits of any other state, exactly as drivers licenses from anywhere are accepted by all states today.

Finally, Trump would lift the prohibition on military members carrying weapons on military bases and in recruiting centers, allowing trained military members to carry weapons to protect themselves from attacks by terrorists, criminals and the mentally unstable, as we have seen recently.

Trump’s bold and fearless defense of the Second Amendment earned him the coveted endorsement of the National Rifle Association. His warning that Hillary Clinton wants to “abolish the Second Amendment” sounded the alarm to millions of Constitution-loving patriots who want their rights protected.

This is great, and those who cherish our right to keep and bear arms should be pleased by Trump’s stated position on the Second Amendment.

Of course, liberal anti-gunners will hate this, but their opinion on the matter is of little concern to us “people of the gun,” of which Donald Trump is apparently one.

Please share this on Facebook and Twitter to help spread Donald Trump’s official policy position on the Second Amendment and our right to keep and bear arms.

16 Affordable Places To Go If You’re Young, Broke And Want To Travel The World

For some, traveling is not so much a hobby as it is a way of life, especially for those who are young, wild and free spirited.

Unfortunately spanning the globe doesn’t come cheaply, and getting the most bang for your buck is important, so some sacrifices have to be made — for example, staying in a hostel instead of that 4-star hotel (check out these killer hostels).

Keeping things cheap isn’t always easy for the world traveler, but for those who perpetually have the travel bug, here are a few places you must visit that won’t break the bank!

1. Auckland, New Zealand

Pixabay

If you are traveling to Auckland, New Zealand then the only thing that you may find expensive will be the flight, especially if you are flying from the US. But the food and accommodations are more than affordable here.

twitter

2. Marrakech, Morocco

Pixabay

Tripadvisor named Marrakech as the number one travel destination in the 2015. You’ll want to go between October and May as the places to stay will drop their rates, and the food is amazing and will fit into any budget.

3. Machu Picchu, Peru

Pixabay

A hiker’s delight, the Incan ruins of Machu Pichu are simply breathtaking. The Inca trail and even a trip to the Peruvian coast are affordable destinations in this South American nation.

4. Varna, Bulgaria

Though quite underrated, Varna is still one of the most affordable eastern European cities to visit. This resort town lies right on the coast of the Black Sea.

5. Medellin, Colombia

Okay, so the first thing one thinks of when Colombia is mentioned is cocaine and drug trafficking. Infamouse for being a dangerous place thanks tot drug lords like Pablo Escobar, Colombia is improving its reputation and places like Medellin, Bogota and Cali are very affordable for tourists.

6. Ankor Wat, Cambodia

Pixabay

Cambodia is a relatively cheap place to visit, but, unfortunately, the flights there aren’t. But to get a glimpse of the Buddhist temple Angkor Wat, the largest religious monument in the world, just might be worth it.

7. Madrid, Spain

Even though Europe is considered to be an expensive continent, Spain is considered to be relatively cheaper. The best months to travel there are September, October, April and May.

Pixabay

8. Hanoi, Vietnam

Pixabay

Nothing could be a better value for travelers than Vietnam as it is quite budget friendly. The best time to visit is late December so you can avoid the rains.

9. Cuba

PixabayCuba is one of the most popular tourist destinations and now flights from the U.S. have finally resumed after over half a century. Even if you go for the last minute deals or plan a package trip, Cuba is going to be quite affordable. The best months to travel are September to November and January to March.

Pixabay

10. Arizona, USA

PixabayArizona is hands down the most beautiful state in the U.S. It has it all, from forests to deserts and there’s something for everyone. Hike or camp or get a hotel room or timeshare, either way the rates of accommodations have gone down in recent years. Just don’t go from June to August unless you like it hot!

Pixabay

11. Crete, Greece

PixabayGreece is among the top visited countries as it is both cheap and beautiful. Travel blogger Nomadic Matt says, “Greece is a great deal, but you should stay in places like Crete instead of Santorini if you want to save money.” If you feel the need to check out Santorini while visiting Crete, it’s a seven hour ferry ride, but it might just be worth it.

12. Bangkok, Thailand

PixabayOne of the cheapest places to travel in the world is Bangkok, Thailand. Rooms can be as low as $20 a night and food and flights are inexpensive as well.

All You Need To Know About The Bro-Code

Only men can understand the vitality of bromances in our lives. Of course we love women. But when it comes to friendships nobody can understand a man better than his guy-friends, which is why every guy out there needs to know the bro-code inside out. The Bro-Code is the book of certain unsaid rules of a man’s friendship with another one that we all must agree to abide by. Here are some of the rules.

All You Need To Know Abou

1. Have your bro’s back, no matter what. You’re no friend if you cannot watch out for him.

2. If his girlfriend asks you about where he is, you know nothing – nothing at all. Keep his whereabouts to yourself, hang up and warn him.

3. If your buddy assigns you as his wingman at a party, make him proud by doing your job well. He hooking up with the girl he is eyeing is your responsibility. Get on it right away.

4. You must do all you can to save your bro from dating an ugly girl. Chances are that he is too drunk to even make out if that person is a girl or a guy. If you’re sure he’s sober, then that means you can shrug off all responsibility and try your own luck with hotter women around.

5. There are four things about your bro that you must respect in all conditions – his house, his parents, his girlfriend and most important of all, his car.

6. You just cannot get involved with your bro’s mother or sister. It is one of the biggest violations of the bro code. A step mother whom he hates is still okay.

7. If your bro asks you about your opinion of his new date, you are supposed to give an honest answer. If you don’t like her, tell him. Just make sure you’re not saying, “I want her in my bed right now!”

8. You must never leave your bro alone without any ride. No matter how much you want to get laid, there is no way you are letting him walk more than three blocks.

9. A bro shall never make a bro feel ashamed. Even if he just hooked up with the most hideous girl ever, you’re supposed to make excuses on his behalf. Of course it wasn’t him, it was the alcohol.

10. You will do whatever it takes to make your bro look like a superhero in front of others. If he is bad at a certain sport you’re playing, you play weak and save his image.

11. A wingman is never supposed to put his bro down in front of the girl. If the wingman makes the man look bad in front of the target, other bros are totally entitled to bash him up later.

12. The bro code permits the entry of a girl as the new bro only if she proves to be worthy of the honour and by common concession, of course.

13. Even if a girl manages to enter the bro gang, you shall never reveal the bro code to her. You may treat her as one amongst you but never disclose any rule until she wins your trust completely. She could be an undercover agent for all you know.

14. A bro is never allowed to drive in a drunken state. An exception can be made in the case of a bro who has acquired masters in the art of drunken driving. If a sloshed bro needs to be sent back home, arrangements shall be made for the same at any cost. Stealing others’ car keys is allowed if necessary.

15. Anything a bro does in a drunken state is justified. Everything is forgiven for him. You shall make excuses for him whenever required, for he shall do the same when the time comes.

16. A bro shall never allow another bro to text a girl when drunk. In case his girlfriend calls when he is drunk, the phone shall be kept in the custody of someone sober until the bro comes back to senses.

17. In the absence of your bro, you are his girlfriend’s protector. You shall ride her to wherever she wants and keep her safe.

18. A bro shall never describe his sexual encounter in explicit detail to any of his bros. This might lead to them imaging him naked which is forbidden by the bro code.

19. A bro always advices his bro with the best tips to approach a girl. IT is a bro’s duty to encourage his bro to become an Alpha-Bro.

20. Never sleep with a bro’s ex-girlfriend. If you are attracted to your bro’s ex, you shall not make a pass at her without taking his permission. If he wants you to stay away from her, you shall abide by his request.

21. If you get involved with a bro’s ex, with his permission of course, you shall never rub it in his face. Remember that it was the girl’s choice to date you and it has nothing to do with you being a better charmer than your bro.

22. A bro always looks after another bro if he blacks out. He shall also tell him all that happened last night, however much bad it may be. Bros trust each other with their life, and it shall not be broken.

23. A bro shall never let another bro get his girlfriend’s name tattooed. Enough said.

24. Celebrate your bromance. If anybody, especially a girl looks down upon it, shoot her. They’re just jealous because they’ll never know what being a part of a bro code means.

25. The fist bump is a form of appreciation. You shall use it to show acceptance, appreciation or a go-for-it. Use this weapon often to have your bros know that you’re on their side.

26. If your bro is broke, the bro code demands you to treat him. In no case shall he be left hungry, or homeless.

27. A bro shall always be forgiven. Bros are for life, there is nothing a bro can do to deserve hatred. Unless he gets involved with your girlfriend. In that case, punch him in the face.

28. If a bro is unable to pitch in money for beer, other bros shall cover him. He shall not be deprived of the holy potion.

29. Never hit a bro in the nuts, not even while goofing around. The bro code condemns such acts.

Textron Shows off New 6.5mm Case-Telescoped Carbine

QUANTICO, Virginia — Textron Systems unveiled its new 6.5mm case-telescoped carbine at Modern Day Marine 2016. The weighted model represents Textron’s latest effort to develop a new age of infantry weapons that fire weight-saving, case-telescoped ammunition. Textron has made significant advancements in this technology with its Light Weight Small Arms Technology, or LSAT – an Army funded program that has so far yielded working lightweight machine guns in both 5.56mm and 7.62mm.

The new 6.5 CS carbine emerged out of an intermediate caliber study Textron conducted in 2014, according to Ben Cole, project engineer.

Currently, the empty weight of the mock-up carbine is 8.7 pounds. A magazine loaded with 20 rounds of case-telescoped 6.5mm ammunition adds one pound. An M4A1 carbine weighs 7.74 pounds empty and about 8.74 pounds with a loaded 30-round mag.

Case-telescoped ammunition is about 40-percent lighter when you compare it to the standard brass ammo in the same caliber, Cole said.

The 123 grain 6.5mm has a muzzle velocity of about 3,000 feet per second, Cole said.

Comparatively, the 62 grain bullet on the M855A1 has a muzzle velocity of 2,970 feet per second, according to U.S. Army data.

“If you take this 6.5mm bullet at our muzzle velocity, it’s 300 percent more down-range energy than the M855A1,” Cole said. “So for a minimal weight gain, you would have significantly more down-range lethality.”

Textron officials hope to have a working prototype to begin testing early next year, Cole said.

“We are trying to go after the next requirement for soldier rifles,” Cole said.

UN Troops Landing At US Air Force Bases

There have been multiple civilian sightings of strange planes landing at American Air Force bases, all carrying UN troops and/or having UN markings (or none). My husband, a Vietnam vet, has been back and forth to Overton-Brooks VA Medical Hospital three times a week this month. Barksdale Air Force Base, one of the most secure Strategic Air Command (SAC) bases in the nation, has had unusual C-130s or C-136s fly into Barksdale AFB and land at all hours.

The interstate runs in front of the side and front of the base and is clearly visible with no restraints. (Barksdale is where President George W. Bush landed on 9/11, it is such a safe, secure, and well-guarded installation.)

These flights have been reported by other citizens and several of the military men who work inside the base have reported that the UN troops are given US military clothing and name tags. When our servicemen question this, the soldiers are told they did NOT see what they just saw. Base operations refused to confirm or deny or discuss these sightings.

Lately, rumors and reports regarding the presence of foreign troops in the US working with our armed forces have been hitting public awareness. Originally government sources denied these reports, but now official reports are confirming what eye witnesses had been reporting. (www.SaveAmericaFoundation.com) Russia herself confirms that the Obama administration has requested 15,000 Russian troops to train with FEMA in the event of a SHTF scenario, particularly in the Washington D.C., Maryland, and Virginia area.

The question is why? It appears that foreign troops are working with US troops, practicing on urban warfare, civil unrest, and civil disturbance scenarios. In Colorado, rumors of Russian troops practicing to deal with terrorist raids and martial law scenarios have been proven correct by our own US armed forces. Peterson AFB in Colorado is another base being used.

Located in Germany is the Marshall Center, named after General George C. Marshall, who was quite the UN/NWO devotee. At this present time, the Department of Defense is conducting classes in counterterrorism. Of course, the definition of “terrorism” belongs to new world order advocates. According to the definition used by the NWO, a terrorist is anyone who opposes a takeover of their nation. That would make all NWO resistors and/or anyone who disagrees with the new world order plans potential terrorists.

Are You A Terrorist By Their Definition?

Do you believe in our national sovereignty and national Constitution? Do you believe in religious liberty and freedom of speech? Do you believe in the right to own guns and bear arms? Are you prepared to stand up and fight for your freedom if an order of martial law is imposed?

Then by UN/NWO definition, you are a terrorist!

The problem with these foreign troops being trained to intervene on American soil in SHTF scenarios which might occur here is that they have no loyalty to our Constitution, they have no loyalty to the inherent rights that have always been ours as American citizens, and they have no basis for restraint in any action they might perceive as necessary, regardless of our laws. They have no constitutional right to interfere in the internal events of our country.

NATO and the UN have the same goal, mission, and function: to subvert the sovereignty of the United States and the rest of the world, turning us all into a fascist worldwide state. Our government officials have proven time and again here lately that they are not to be trusted. Congress is nothing more than a rubber stamp for what the administration wants, not the representative body of the citizenry as it should be.

What catastrophic event is this administration preparing to implement now in order to seize the control they so desperately want?

DONALD TRUMP, JR. HAS A 1-ON-1 GUN CONVERSATION WITH SILENCERCO

There’s been a lot of talk surrounding the 2016 Presidential election, and much of it has revolved around guns.

 

 

 

 

Gun rights, gun ownership, and the almighty Second Amendment remain high on the list of talking points for the candidates, as well as their supporters. One unabashed supporter of Donald Trump is, naturally, his son Donald Jr.

To hear more of what Trump, Jr. has to say about his father, the campaign, and guns, watch this exclusive sit down with SilecerCo CEO Joshua Waldron.
