I don't know what exact beef people of the mid Atlantic region have with this McCullough guy.  But I will tell you this: it's high time the NRA got the fuck out of the way of shooting sports.  They have zero fucking clue about what they are doing.

 

Conventional NRA highpower rifle is dying, and would be already dead were it not for the CMP's Rifle Excellence In Competition program.  NRA conventional pistol and conventional smallbore are both walking zombies (dead for all practical purposes).  Bianchi Cup and PPC, who the fuck shoots that anyway?

 

Every now and then the NRA tries to horn into the practical pistol and practical rifle world with their silly America's Rifle match and other stupid shit that lasts one or two years before being dropped for lack of interest.

 

The NRA needs to leave rifle matches to USPSA, NRL, and PRS.  They need to leave handgun sports to USPSA and IDPA.  And they need to leave shotgun sports to the ATA, NSCA, and NSSA.

 

The NRA Competitions Division just needs to be shut down.  They are completely irrelevant.  And this coming from someone who shot NRA HP rifle almost exclusively for nearly 10 years......

Something to do with the NRA Undisputed Super Galactic World Championship Snooze Fest? https://wsc.nra.org/


(I got bored by the 3 minute mark. Maybe it totally rocks the cabash right after the one-handed bullseye stage and the dude sticking a muzzle up his own nose.)

This is the Amateur winner and 9th OA so form your own opinion on the height of the bar.

Of course it's usually the USPSA / 3-gun shooters that win, so maybe there's that butthurt too.

Shadow Hawk Defense

Hello Friends. We're
very sorry to report that, due to some permitting issues with the state and county, matches are suspended. We hope to have this issue resolved in 10-12 weeks. June USPSA will not be held. We're sorry to disappoint everyone.

 

 

 

 

 

They are blaming the dude that runs Peacemaker and is also an NRA something or other for black balling Shadowhawk Defense with the local government

 

 

Jennifer McCune McCulloch FACT CHECK…Per recent defamatory accusations by Shadow Hawk Defense and other individuals and groups (who will be receiving legal consequences very soon), Peacemaker National Training Center is offering the following statement regarding Shadow Hawk Defense, Shadow Hawk Properties, Elite Training Concepts and their Principals:

In the fall of 2014, “Elite Training Concepts” and its Principals (owners/operators) Lynn Kasick and Randy Weekely, sought to open a 51,700-square-foot tactical training facility in Inwood, WV, near Sulphur Spring Road/St. Leo Catholic Church. Per the below article in the Herald-Mail, Elite Training Concepts Principals, Lynn Kasic and Randy Weekley, attempted to go through the Berkeley County Building and Engineering process to build this facility. As public opposition was faced, Elite Training Concepts abandoned this Inwood, WV location and plans to build in this area.

https://www.heraldma...8c195c8-5992...

In 2015, in an effort to find a more secluded area, Elite Training Concepts/Shadow Hawk Defense/Shadow Hawk Properties purchased the property adjacent to PNTC at 436 Apple Harvest Drive. Shortly after the purchase of this property, PNTC began receiving complaints about full auto, large amounts of barrage fire and other firing being conducted at late night hours and at random other times which was NOT from PNTC operations. 

Upon further investigation and per the below Berkeley County Engineering & Building Inspections Office via a FOIA request, it is clear that from 2015 through 2018, Shadow Hawk/Elite Training Concepts has illegally and willfully avoided the Berkeley County commercial development processes (with which they understood after their abandoned project in Inwood) and constructed a large complex of ranges, roads, buildings and other structures without proper commercial permits. Additionally, it is clear that Shadow Hawk built and constructed structures, road and storm water ponds and ditches on Peacemaker’s property. Shadow Hawk also clearly did not conduct required public hearings or obtain Berkeley County Engineering Plans, WVDEP Permits, MS4 and Chesapeake Bay storm water management compliance permits, or WVDOT entrance permits. https://f001.backbla...owH_Comp-2nd...

In the past week, Shadow Hawk was closed by the Berkeley County government via a Cease & Desist Order by Berkeley County for a laundry list of illegal building and business activities. Further, Shadow Hawk and others have now embarked upon a slanderous and defamatory campaign to blame Peacemaker for its closing and attack its owner. In an attempt to distract from their illegal activities, Shadow Hawk and associates have gone so far as to start a petition to have PNTC’s owner removed from his position of employment at the NRA. 

We look forward to seeing each and every person and entity involved in this slanderous activity in court.

Threating personal suit for stupid, defamatory statements is usually as sign of someone being obnoxiously litigious and not confident their case will win on the merits.

 

The facts sound pretty squarely against the Shadow Hawk people. But the NRA person being a litigious blowhard weakens her credibility and makes it seem like there might be more to the story.

Two groups of rich shitbirds sporting names from terrible 80’s “speshul farces” movies going at it in court in some backwater town over permitting? Who gives a shit? Barely gets my small hairs tingling.

Shooting sports are a macro of the firearms industry. The industry leads all of the shooting sports around like a puppy on a leash.

They need to go at it Filipino-style to be remotely interesting.

That long explanation about how Peacemaker wasn't involved was deleted from its page sometime after I asked who made the FOIA request. I never saw a response.
