The Hunter’s Shop in Branford supports Malloy’s McCarthy style gun control

Seems some gun shop owners just don’t get it.  Let’s look at the facts on these “watch” lists:

  • Nobody has been convicted of a crime.
  • We don’t know how folks get on these lists.
  • It’s nearly impossible to get off the list, even when you can prove your innocence.
  • Most names on the list, most likely don’t belong on these lists.
  • Who’s to say, names don’t get put on the list because they are too popular in the gun rights movement?

Think some of that is speculation?  Stewart Rhodes, founder of “The Oathkeepers” has a lovely 4S rating on his boarding pass.  This means, he gets extra special attention at the airport when he travels for doing NOTHING WRONG.  For some, it’s a badge of honor, but how easy is it to get on the list?

This from WTNH:

“If they’re on a terror watch list, I support it 110%,” said Thomas Imperati, owner the Hunter’s Shop in Branford. “I don’t want to hand anyone a gun if they’re on the list.”

Seems The Hunter’s Shop in Branford doesn’t mind if folks have a scarlet letter on their back for doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING wrong.  It is our stance here at the Yankee Gunner podcast to either charge someone or let them go.  We still are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty.

BTW, if you still think that innocent folks don’t end up on the list, the links below are kids.  How does a TODDLER end up on the list?  Hell, one kid is only 8!

The toddler is here:

Mindset and Life




Reloading class, Torrington, October 10th. Only $35.00!

Ever wanted to learn how to reload? Either for saving money, creating match grade ammunition or just a hobby that is relaxing and rewarding at the same time?

In this 4hr class, we’ll go over & cover the basics of reloading. Everything from decapping/resizing to final crimp.

A Hornady LNL AP progressive will beis used to demonstrate the process of loading handgun calibers (9mm Luger or 45ACP), and a Lee single stage will be used to go over rifle calibers (5.56, 6.8SPC, .308 or 30-06).

Each student will get seat time behind each press, for each process step.

The cost for this class is $35, preferred payment is via PayPal “gift”, however if you can guarantee your attendance, payment the morning of is acceptable also.

Tutorials that go over each step of reloading is also handed out to each student and are yours to keep.

* Note: the only thing you will not take away from this class is the ammunition produced (the absolute most has only been in the low 30’s anyways). The recipes used are known for my firearms, and even though same make/model should be the same, they’re sometimes not.

If you’re interested, please send an email to (PP address is the same).

Location: Torrington, CT

Date/Time: Saturday, 10 October 2015, 10a-2p.

Coffee, donuts, tutorials & knowledge will be provided.
