wp-1597100058286..jpgThese are strange times.  I think we all see that. Applications for firearms have increased 500% in Pennsylvania alone.. I happened to be at a gun range in Conroe Texas that I really like.  Shooters Station in Conroe has very knowledgeable staff…great ranges and a great selection…Many gun ranges have ‘gun dorks’ that are arrogant…aloof and not really helpful.  I have shot at scores of gun ranges.  Most leave me unimpressed.. Shooters Station is verywp-1597100024593..jpg good!  Caleb gave me a few free range passes and was super helpful!

These folks at Shooters Station have a clean store,  amazing range and people willing to help at every step.  I happened to step in and saw they had a CAA MCK.  This is a kit that allows you to put a (in this case) a Glock 19 or 17 pistol) into a platform that turns it into a SBR (if you have the licence) or at least a pistol that is much more stable and allows you to put optics and other fun things on it….

I mounted a Sig Romeo5and did shoulder it at the range.  I wanted to see how it shot.  WOW!  First..the MCK..is LIGHT!  Very light.  Probably about 1 lb…it is made of Polymer and is super light and strong.  I put my Glock 17inside…and zeroed my Sig Romeo5.  That little PWD (Personal Defense Weapon) was amazing!  No recoil…zero flash…it was dinging at 25 yards like nobody’s business!  I did not upgrade to a match barrel and the G17 had not even been broken in! TargetMCK

It has Picatinny rails and collapses down to about 10 inches.  Small enough to keep in a small back pack. Weighed with the Pistol inside and a light, laser and Romeo5?  Less than 3.5 lbs.  Easy to handle.

I can say definitively..if I had to get into a gun fight..I would much rather have a G17 or G17 in the MCKthan go with just the pistol.  As a friend of mine said (wont say where he works)…“Shooting a rifle well is like driving a race car.  Shooting a pistol well is like flying a fighter jet”. Based upon his background…I agree.  Putting good optics on the MCK and the stability makes it a no brainier in my mind.

I have decided my G17 will live in my MCK platform.  It folds up nicely to keep in my Jeep and no need to have a Pistol alone.

At the range, I shot rapid shot at 25 yards.  It was a bit high and left but ammo right now is hard SMallPirto come by so I just wanted to group.  You can see the group I shot.  20 Rounds at 25 yards…off hand all within 2.5 inches using a red dog sight.  WOW!  That is impressive from a 9mm Glock with a stock barrel I was shooting at bout 2 rounds per second!  Needless to say, I am super impressed.  

Construction is SOLID!  Polymer is very strong…it is modular and it does not rust.  The stock moves with ease and keeping the G17 in place is solid.  Keeps zero very well!  Overall,  it is worth the $298 I paid at Shooter’s Station 100x over.  I was a bit concerned as I had never met them that I might be given a ‘tourist rate”…nope…$298.  For that price…amazing.

For anyone looking for a great PDW and that has a Glock 17/19/22/23/43 etc.  Definitely check out CAA MCK!  One thing to consider.  I teach a LOT of people to shoot pistols.  That is hard.  I can put someone behind the MCK with a Glock and they are dead on within 5 minutes!  In today’s world..that is important…..

NFAC’s “Grandmaster Jay”- John Jay Fitzgerald Johnson (2016 Presidential Candidate) August 4, 2020

Grandmaster Jay

NFAC leader Grandmaster Jay – Real name? John Jay Fitzgerald Johnson

UPDATE (at end..WOW!)

Over the past two weeks of riots I have had my inbox and social media inundated with videos of someone apparently trying to teach weapons handling to people of something called the NFAC (see below).  As someone who still practices shooting regularly I watched the videos.

Initially, I believed them to be parody until I saw an interview and realized this person is actually serious about the effort… If you are interested here are some some videos.  Video 1, Video 2.  I should also point out that these ‘Expert shooters’ shot three of their own members by accident during the Louisville march.

I was curious as to the identity of this person who uses the moniker Grandmaster Jay.  It appears he is the leader of NFAC.  So..what is NFAC?   It is an acronym for the “Not F@@king Around Coalition”.  According to their leader…”Grandmaster Jay” (not to be confused with the rapper)...“We are a Black militia. We aren’t protesters, we aren’t demonstrators. We don’t come to sing, we don’t come to chant. That’s not what we do.”  The leader also Stated that the United States should give the state of Texas to African Americans so that they can create an Ethnostate. He further stated that the group is comprised of “ex military shooters.”  In fact, he stated “we are all expert shooters”.  This is what brought this person to my attention.

A bit of research seems to point to a man named John Fitzgerald Johnson.  A bit more research seems to point to a gentleman by a man of the same name and VERY similar appearance and voice who ran (obviously unsuccessfully) for president of the United States in 2016.  Here is his Facebook Page when he ran as an independent ‘candidate’ for US President.  Here is is actual candidate website.  Here is his updated Facebook page called “The Real Grandmaster Jay” Here is his Youtube channel, as well.  What is curious is who John Fitzerald Johnson went from “Only WE can fix us” to a radical who demands the state of Texas to create an ethnostate?  As he stated:

“The solution is very simple. We follow the declaration of liberation, declaring every African American descendent of slavery a political prisoner here in the United States who were affected by the Portuguese slave trade and then after that the United States has a choice either carve us a piece of land out here, we will take Texas, and let us do our own thing or don’t stop us when we exit this body here and go somewhere where they will give us our own land to build our own nation.”

I find it curious is how he actually ran as an independent candidate and now, as the leader of the NFAC, has not (to my knowledge ever disclosed his JJF2018true identity while heading the NFAC.  He even refuses to state when the group was formed.What we can surmise is that it was formed after January 26th, 2018 as he updated his presidential Facebook platform’s profile picture on that date.  It could be that he was both attempting to run again in 2020 and founded the NFAC during that time.  Only Mr. Fitzgerald can answer that question.

BornAmericans

More curious is the radical transformation from when he posted a video (Sept 16, 2016) what said, in part: “We are born Americans.  Our Diversity is our strength.”.  He claims to be both a veteran and a combat veteran.  How now trains armed militias and is very clear in his desire for a black “ethnostate” (he wants Texas…good luck on that one.)

After recognizing this person I took time to watch his Youtube channel.  I have to admit, he is certainly charismatic and confident as were Hitler, and Charles Manson, and Ted Bundy.  I would encourage people to read the book the Psychopath Test by John Ronson.  While I am no expert at the Hare Psychopathy test Grandmaster’s Jay’s unbridled delusions of grandeur, and seeming narcissism  resonate with what I read in the book.  To those who are his followers, I would remind them of a great song from the 1980’s from Living Color called The Cult of Personality.

UPDATE…I just had this video sent to me.  WOW! All I can say is WOW!  This guy is over the top. BTW.  John Jay…I am more than a ‘gun enthusiast’ and yes, I will say you have ZERO idea what you are doing.  Your skills are not even marginal.  No wonder three of your people were shot by your own people and you had a negligent discharge.

So…a question to the major media outlets.  How come this information has not been on your  networks yet?  We have a person advocating for the overthrow of the US Government and leading armed militias who are shooting people (granted…only themselves 😉 yet, crickets.

 

A Challenge to Colin Kaepernick- by a Marine Combat Veteran August 31, 2016

Recently, professional football player Colin Kaepernick made a political statement by refusing to stand for the National Anthem.  Former (I know..you are never a “former Marine”) Marine Sgt. (Recon Marine, and Scout/Sniper) Travis Cox recorded a video explaining to Mr. Kaepernick challenging him to ‘do more’ than just ‘sit’.  I agree with Travis and want to add that respect is fundamentally different than ‘pride’.  I believe that Kaepernick’s actions were simply disrespectful. Please share.

White privilege…and me. July 20, 2016

PirateSmallI was talking today about white privilege and how I did not agree with the premise…I was then challenged…here are some questions I was asked…

  • “Have ou ever been in a state home because your parents were in jail?”
  • “Have you ever watched your mom taken to jail?”
  • “Have you ever visited your parents in jail”
  • “Have you ever lived in a battered women’s shelter?”
  • “Have you ever been a minority in your school?”
  • “Have you ever been raised in foster homes?”
  • “Have you ever had to steal food as a kid to eat?”
  • “Have you ever been beaten up for being a minority?”
  • “Have you ever work the same pair of shoes for a full year?”
  • “Have you ever been homeless?”

Many reading this probably think this is referring to someone challenging me.  This is actually my life.  The answer I give to all of these questions is YES!  This is how I grew up as a boy.

I have been ALL of these..I have been all of these and experienced all of this.  I grew up VERY poor and a minority in many neighborhoods.  I learned to fight early and often. I have indeed watched my mom taken to jail and visited her speaking over a phone between a glass wall.  I have been in a state home, lived in a battered women’s shelter and was raised in foster homes.  I have watched my step-father taken to prison..I never saw him again….Why do I disclose this?  Simple.  These people who cry about “White privilege” need to get off their proverbial asses and actually do something positive in life.  Don’t cry and complain that life is unfair and that those who get ahead only do so due to some ‘privilege’.  We have all felt struggles.  There are numerous people who are ‘disadvantaged’ in life and go forth and make a positive life.

Recently, I read about a  Black advocate for ‘free tuition’ whose father made $1 million per year.  I laughed. This guy was raised in a much, much more affluent home than I was yet he was playing the ‘race card’ to get attention.

Look…life aint’ easy for anyone.  Some people have advantages and others don’t.  that is life.  Some people are born with  a silver spoon in their mouths while others have to steal to eat.  The point is that people should quite crying about ‘privilege’ and get off their asses to do something positive. Michelle Obama was raised in the South Side of Chicago!  She certainly did not have “white privilege” yet she went to Princeton then Harvard!

My point is not that some people are disadvantaged in life.  I was.  My point is that blindly labeling all success as ‘privilege’ of any sort ignores what people strive to attain.  Are there advantaged white people? Sure..are there advantaged black people?  yes…ultimately, we all need to work hard and take ownership of our lives.

Thanks for reading…

Chris
