The Texas NFA community gathered outside Floresville, TX for the annual Makin’ Bacon machine gun shoot.  The shoot is organized as a fundraiser for the NFA Freedom Alliance.  The NFA Freedom Alliance is run by Todd Rathner.

“The NFA Freedom Alliance exists for the sole purpose of representing the interests of owners, dealers, and manufactures of items regulated by the National Firearms Act.”

The event was a big success.  The money raised will go towards lobbying for our NFA rights.

Join the NFA Freedom Alliance now.

Thanks to everyone for supporting the NFA Freedom Alliance.  See you at Bacon 5.

And then after Bacon…..

After the event was over, we hosted Todd at our hunting lease south of Seguin.  We were hunting with the new Trijicon IR-Hunter thermal scope.   Todd got on two big wild Texas hogs.  The first required a 400 yard stalk. Todd got within 30 yards (depth perception is different with thermal) and whacked this magnificent beast.

Gear used was LMT AR-10, Trijicon IR-Hunter, Federal Fusion .308 150gr, and Colonel EH Taylor Small Batch Bourbon.

The next night we set up on a large stock tank before sunset.  The Trijicon thermal is just awesome.  It was pitch black when I spotted a large pig coming through the woods.  We got Todd on the rifle and he whacked this giant sow at about 100 yards.  The full hunting story and review of the Trijicon thermal is coming.
