Proof that Wisconsin is Inching Closer to Concealed Carry

It feels like concealed carry is closer than ever...

Today it was announced that the Milwaukee County DA’s office wouldn’t level any charges against a tow truck driver who shot two men as they robbed him. You can read more about this story here: http://bit.ly/fLCKvQ

Kudos to the Milwaukee County DA’s office for recognizing the public’s right to defend themselves. This is proof that the existing laws regarding self-defense with a firearm are out of date and need to be updated to allow citizens to better protect themselves against thugs. I am a strong believer that concealed carry laws deter crime simply because an armed public is not appealing to those who make a living victimizing others. For someone like this man, who is routinely at risk in his day-to-day duties, concealed carry laws will help make his daily tasks less dangerous.

Planned Improvements At Boxhorn

Many people are probably wondering what types of improvements can be expected at the club. A few things have already been done or are in progress, and many more are planned.  Here's a comprehensive list of all current and future planned improvements (NOTE: all of the future improvements are subject to change, and the below list may not be all-inclusive):

Changes made to date:
  • Seating - The old leather bench that took up the entire upper half of the club has been removed and replaced with temporary tables and chairs...see below for the future state of the seating
  • TV in the Bar - The flat screen monitor behind the bar now has the ability to display the television programming
  • External Paint - The outside of the club is having the old surface prepped to get a fresh paint job
Planned changes (by Memorial Day):
  • New Seating Throughout - New upper level tables and chairs as well as new barstools in the bar are ordered...they are being custom made (in Wisconsin).  To see examples, visit this website.
  •  A Deck - A new deck will be built on the east side of the clubhouse to allow for more outdoor space to kick back
  • Windows in the Bar - New windows are going to be installed facing the lake to brighten up the bar area enhance the view
  • Lights on the Line - New lighting will be installed along the whole trap line
  • Mic Tune-up - All microphones are being tuned up and will be back in service by the second week of summer leagues
As you can see, there are some drastic changes on the horizon. It looks like they will be complete by the time of the Wisconsin Southeast Zone Championships on the weekend of June 11th and 12th!

Boxhorn Sportsman's Club Grand Opening This Weekend!

As most of you know, as of March 14th, Boxhorn Gun Club has been under new ownership.  It has reopened as Boxhorn Sportsman's Club, and they are having an open house this weekend.  On Saturday, April 9th, everyone will get a chance to meet the new owner, Art Dumke, and one of the other new faces, Paul Jonas, should be there as well.  Plus, you can shoot trap for $5.00 per round and sporties for $15.00 per round!

While the club is going through major changes, many things are staying the same.  For instance, Rick and Debbie Schim will still be involved with the day-to-day club operations.  Also, as of now, I will still be running the ATA events for the club.

There's much more I want to talk about (like ALL of the changes at Boxhorn that are planned), but I'll address that stuff in upcoming posts.

I hope you are all dusting off the shotgun and getting back out there again.  I hope to shoot some at Boxhorn tomorrow (maybe even some doubles with Wisconsin Sub-Junior All-State Team Captain Jordan Hintz!)...hopefully I'll see some of you out there!
