ATF SAYS SHOULDER FIRE OF SIG SAUER SB 15, SB 47 & SBX NOW “OFFICIALLY”ILLEGAL

As some of you may know the ATF issued a public letter on Friday declaring that shouldering a pistol equipped with Sig Brace “redesigned” the firearm into a short barreled rifle. Thus making it illegal to shoulder a perfectly legal to purchase and own AR or AK pistol accessory.  Here is the full open letter. 

For those of you who are not familiar with the Sig Brace you can find more info. in the video below.

I guess these nifty little Sig Braces were cutting into the ATF’s SBR tax stamp revenue. What a shame. Here’s an interesting take on the entire situation as seen through the eyes of YouTuber “therealTrippleB

BREAKING PRESS RELEASE FROM SIG SAUER. Sig Sauer intends to challenge this declaration.

NEWINGTON, N.H. (January 21, 2015)—SIG SAUER, Inc., has issued the following statement about the recent opinion by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in regard to the SB15 and SBX pistol stabilizing braces.

“As reaffirmed in an Open Letter by ATF’s Firearms and Ammunition Technology Division dated January 16, 2015, the Pistol Stabilizing Brace (SB15 and SBX) is legal to own, legal to purchase, and legal to install on a pistol. SIG SAUER® believes that the PSB improves the single-handed shooting performance of buffer tube equipped pistols, and offers the product both as an accessory and pre-installed on a number of pistols.

“The Open Letter goes further to rescind a previous private letter regarding the ‘intent’ of the user of the pistol stabilizing brace. In the letter of January 16, 2015, ATF opines that a person’s actual use of the product as a shoulder stock can change the legal classification of the product. However, the Open Letter explicitly states: “ATF hereby confirms that if used as designed—to assist shooters in stabilizing a handgun while shooting with a single hand—the device is not considered a shoulder stock and therefore may be attached to a handgun without making a NFA firearm.”

“We question ATF’s reversal in position that the classification of the brace may be altered by its use. We are reviewing the legal precedents and justification for this position, and will address our concerns with ATF in the near future.

“We will vigorously defend the classification of all of our products and our consumers’ right to use them in accordance with the law. If we find that the open letter opinion is outside the scope of the law, we will seek further review.”

 

STAY TUNED.

NAVY SEAL INSTRUCTION -ONE ARM SHOOT DRILL UNDER STRESS

I’ve embedded  one of many of my favorite videos from youtube channel “vonhelmet”. The channel is maintained by former Navy Seal, Rich Graham of www.tridentfitness.net. His program can train individuals to become what Graham calls Full Spectrum Warriors or FSW. In this video Graham demonstrates one handed shooting drills as well as one handed transition techniques. If you have a minute check out www.tridentfitness.net I wish there was a program like this in my AO. Hope y’all enjoy. Don’t try this at home.

TEXANS SUPPORT HB 195 CONSTITUTIONAL CARRY 2015

Glad to see pro 2nd groups show up at the Texas State Capital yesterday in support of HB 195. If passed it will allow open carry of hand guns in Texas by legal gun owners without a permit. Ie: Constitutional Carry.  New Governor Greg Abbott has promised to sign any open carry legislation that makes it to his desk. The fellas over at C.A.T.I TEXAS (no affiliation) also brought a neat little gadget to demo. The Defense Distributed Ghost Gunner. I will cover the GG in another post. Keep up the good work everyone!
