Women's Pistol Class Is Scheduled for May 24-25 2014

Name a sport which does not require sheer strength, big muscles, or requires over-exertion to win. A sport dominated by those with superior concentration, superb timing, excellent coordination and dexterity, coincidentally, skills which women excel in naturally. That sport is pistol shooting.

Coyote Point Rifle and Pistol Club is proud to announce our 2014 two day NRA Basic Pistol Class for Women.

We live in California and know full well that we have some of the most restrictive and non-productive gun laws in the nation. As gun owners, we continually face the challenges of being stereotyped in every negative way imaginable by ignorant anti-gunners (i.e. inbred rednecks). Whenever we try to defend ourselves, we are treated with contempt. We are not allowed to express our First Amendment rights whenever the liberals disagree with the Second Amendment. Gun owners fail to receive due process in the eyes of the liberal public because we are judged by a biased media and unfortunately, a nation of sheeple.

How can I convey 500 meters (547 yards) to you? Driving on the freeway, it will take me about 20 seconds to cover 547 yards. An average person will take over 6 minutes to briskly walk that distance. The silhouette ram target's body is about a foot tall and two feet wide, weighing 60 pounds, and must not only be hit, but must fall completely off its stand to be counted. Even if I were standing smack dab in front of it, I would have to HEAVE a brick... OVERHAND... with a hurricane tailwind behind me, to accomplish that. Can you imagine the terminal velocity required to knock that chunk of metal off its stand?

The Exquisite Colt Python

The Colt Python is a double action, large I-frame handgun chambered for the powerful .357 Magnum cartridge originally developed by Smith & Wesson. In fact, the only true ".357 Magnum" is the original one developed by Smith & Wesson in the 1930s. All others were "chambered for .357" but the fact is that ".357 Magnum" is an S&W trade name and not just a caliber designation. There are no true ".357 Magnums" other than those produced by Smith & Wesson on their large "N" frame. This is why Colt Pythons have a "CTG" (cartridge) after the caliber stamp on all their barrels.
