This might be a historic week for gun rights advocates as the U.S. Supreme Court prepares to hear arguments in the D.C. gun ban case. In the event you haven’t been following the news, the Washington Post had a summary of the issue in yesterday’s paper that is worth a look.

For my part, I’m going to vigorously exercise my 2A rights by sending a lot of lead downrange today. I’m up in New Hampshire (Live Free Or Die: Does any state have a better motto?) at the Sig Academy.

I’ll be running through a carbine class getting some trigger time with the Sig 556. I also plan on putting the new Sig P250 through its paces. Look for full reports here in the coming days. All in all, hard to imagine a better way to start the week.
