Town Hall Meeting #3

Teller Rifles, Victor/Cripple Creek American Legion, Florissant VFW, Community Impact team, and Woodland Park American Legion have worked in cooperation with the Teller County Sheriff’s Office (TCSO) and Cripple Creek police department (CCPD) to organize safety briefings regarding our communities and county. As we are all aware crime, civil disorder, homelessness, drugs, and illegal immigration have raised the potential threat level our country faces and our communities are not exempt. Consequently, we are organizing community meetings with two specific purposes. First, to provide citizens with information related to crime and disorder and second, to put out a call for action to address current and emerging issues. This effort follows on the heels of our attempt to organize Citizens Alliance for Public Safety (CAPS) which is an effort to create citizen support for our local law-enforcement. These community meetings will involve presentations by TCSO and CCPD. A call for action will involve solicitation of solutions one of which is the formation of a Community Impact Group which will act to establish policies, methods, and communication links between all stakeholders concerned with community safety. Our first meetings are 1 March in Victor, 2 March in cripple Creek, and 8 March in Divide. While these meetings will feature presentations by TCSO and local LEO, they will include a question-and-answer period. These meetings are not limited to Teller Rifle members but are open to the general public. Please RSVP to enable us to provide ample seating. If you have questions call 719 689-2434 or email to teller-rifles@proton.me You may also join by ZOOM using this link: https://us06web.zoom.us/j/86907738813

This Air Rifle truly is the most Bang for your Buck. It is 315 Survivals top choice for value in a big bore air rife. Able to sling three regulated .50 caliber shots per fill, the Hammer utilizes Umarex’s patent-pending Lightspeed™ valve created specifically to deliver jaw-dropping power. Crafted to throw 550 grain, .50 caliber slugs downrange at 760fps for an unheard of 700 FPE, and a 250gr slug at 1,000 fps—the Hammer has more than enough power to knock down even the largest game. Powered by a huge 4,500 psi carbon fiber cylinder that is regulated to 3,000 psi allows for 3 consistent, full-powered regulated shots with the ability for a powerful fourth follow-up shot. Once you fire your first shot, move on to the next by operating the straight-pull bolt to index the 2-round magazine. The bolt’s low 2-lb cocking effort makes taking a fast follow-up shot shockingly easy. Each Hammer includes two magazines to keep the shots coming. For added protection, the Hammer employs a three-step safety system that includes a manual trigger safety, hammer-block, and a magazine lockout that prevents the gun from being fired without the magazine inserted. The stock was crafted in collaboration with PolyOne Corp., renowned as experts in the field of specialized polymer products and resulted in a rough-and-ready all-weather stock built to support this rifle’s powerful shots. Each stock includes a rear sling stud and three M-LOK slots in the forearm for adding accessories. The Magpul AR grip contours to the hand, and can be switched out for other AR grips. When choosing your optics you will have a lot of options with the long 8.5” Weaver/Picatinny rail that rests right above its fully-moderated barrel. This barrel is reported to be able to put its first three shots within an inch at 50 yards!

Title: Youth Introduction to Firearms Class
Location: Pikes Peak Community Center in Divide, Colorado.
To register, please email Bob Tyler at eagle3tyler@gmail.com.

Children are naturally curious about firearms and without the proper education, they may be tempted to "play" with a firearm they find. Just because kids aren’t asking about gun safety, doesn’t mean they don’t have questions.

This class specifically teaches about gun safety and what children should do if they ever encounter a gun (Stop, Don’t Touch, Run Away, Tell A Grown-up). Students will be taught MAT - MUZZEL control, keeping the ACTION open, TRIGGER control.

Today’s youth are exposed to more and more but unfortunately very few people will talk to them about gun safety or how to properly handle a firearm. Without the proper education and training, many youth may be tempted to "play" with a firearm or not know how to safely use it.

As a parent or guardian, it is vital that you have a conversation with your child about gun safety. Even if you don’t have guns in the home, the conversation is still very important. Today’s youth are constantly exposed to guns - on TV and movies, in video games, maybe at a friend’s house, or in general society.

Many youth want to jump right to the “shooting stage”. That’s why education and responsible guidance are important before they ever encounter a gun.

Youth Intro to Firearms is a three-hour course for both parents/guardians and their children in both the classroom and the indoor range. This class will not only teach proper gun safety for both on and off the range, but also allow the youth to experience “hands-on” instruction in the safe loading and firing of a .22 caliber bolt action rifle and air rifle. They will also be exposed to all types of actions, rifles, shotguns and pistols.

CCW Class A Big "Hit" Saturday at The Elks Lodge in Victor, CO!

Next class is Saturday, September 23, 2023 at 10:00 am

Safety is the theme of the day with emphasis placed on using a firearm for self-defense as a tool of LAST RESORT. According to instructors Bob and Randy, "The best way to win an argument is to avoid it in the first place." On the other hand, if an assailant is posing threat of immediate danger or bodily harm, the instructors advised us "do not submit!"

The class includes information such as:

  • The Golden Rules for Gun Safety
  • Protecting Sight and Sound (when firing)
  • Types of Firearms
  • Parts of a Handgun
  • Criteria for Selection of a Handgun
  • Ammunition Facts
  • Shooting Fundamentals - Positions, Grip, Aiming, Sight Alignment, Breath Control, Hold Control, Trigger Control, Follow-Through and Firing the Shot

The main message of the day was (and always will be) SAFETY FIRST:
  • Always keep a gun pointed in a safe direction.
  • Always keep the action open.
  • Always keep your finger off the trigger.

If you have not taken this course, Teller Rifles highly recommends it. TR will post the next CCW course when dates and times are confirmed.

Video: Ma Deuce: The Venerable Browning M2 .50 Caliber HMG

Impetus behind the project faltered after the Armistice, but Colt continued to develop the gun during the 1920s and 1930s. It was first adopted in 1922 by the US Coastal Artillery as an antiaircraft gun, but significant manufacture would not come until World War Two. By this time, the gun's main role had shifted, from antitank to being an aircraft armament, and some 2 million were made during World War Two, primarily as aircraft guns. The M2 remains in service today, highlighting the brilliance and longevity of John Browning's designs.

Developing A Smooth Concealed Carry Draw

Article by Shooting Illustrated (NRA) - www.shootingillustrated.com Making the change from someone who owns a defensive pistol to someone who carries a defensive pistol on a regular basis can be a daunting task.

How To Shoot Better Rifle Groups (And Why Good Groups Matter)

Shooting groups with your rifle is a fundamental process that is often underrated and done inadequately. Most hunters will shoot a few groups to get an idea of how accurate their rifle is and then call it good. Or maybe during their sight-in process they shoot a few extra groups just to make sure everything is dialed in. But shooting quality groups, and doing so consistently, is about much more than that. Shooting tight groups builds a foundation for knowing your rifle and shooting it confidently. Perfectly fired groups will also allow you to sight-in more precisely and that increased precision will be carried downrange to longer distances.

3 Practical Pistol Drills for People Who Don't Go to the Range Enough

Let’s be real here: Many (if not most) gun owners don’t conduct enough practical pistol training to remain proficient. If you’re a “range ghost,” lack of time is probably the largest contributing factor. Furthermore, many public ranges are not willing to let their patrons practice the semi-dynamic motions required to realistically practice for a life-or-death encounter. Here are three drills that can be conducted in less than an hour, and which most ranges will allow (although you should always check with the Range Safety Officer anyway). As an additional practice tool, here's a ARMYBOY BB pistol gun from Amazon: https://amzn.to/3w1qne8

14 Great Pocket Pistols for Personal Defense

While the definition of a "pocket" pistol is largely flexible depending on the size of the pocket, generally, an example measures no more than 6.5 inches long and measures less than 1.25 inches wide. It is readily identified as a maneuverable, short-barreled, self-defense pistol. Many of these guns are chambered in calibers that are the same as full-size assemblies and what they sacrifice in accuracy, they make up for in concealability. Here’s our lineup of 14 great pocket pistols for personal defense.

AR-15 Bolt Carrier and Rifle Cut-Away Video Demonstration - Awesome!

Jeff Gillis found what is possibly the best and most complete training video regarding the AR-15 platform. It is approximately 21 minutes in length and will give you the most complete understanding possible on what happens when you squeeze the trigger of your black rifle. I was issued my first M-16 in November of 1968 and given the most rudimentary instruction on how it functioned. If I'd had this video back then I would have been a much more effective 'grunt'.

An extraordinary number of these boys are taking psychiatric medicines known as selective serotonin uptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Thus, it is at least worth exploring whether there is a connection between the high level of SSRI usage in these shooters and their homicidal behaviors. After all, psychiatric drugs are meant to alter one’s behavior. Of course, they are not designed to produce homicidal maniacs, but the incidence of SSRI use in these youngsters is so prevalent that it is a subject worth examining.

The plot is solid, and even though the violence often pushes the boundaries of believability, it’s a wildly entertaining film featuring more than a dozen various types of firearms.

Survival Fruitcake Recipe That Lasts For Years

Better yet, it’s still one of the most nutritious foods we can eat and the combination of long-shelf life and nutrient density makes it an ideal survival food. The only catch is that even the most basic fruitcake recipes get a little complicated.

Teller Rifles Mission: To create local communities within Teller County, Colorado, the state of Colorado and the nation which foster marksmanship and self-defense skills through firearm safety information and hands-on firearm training.

Teller Rifles Motto:  Rights.  Respect.  Rifles.

Rights:  The United States Constitution's Second Amendment guarantees the right to own firearms regardless of the reason or purpose.  Gun owners hunt, target shoot, trap shoot, skeet shoot and engage in firearm competitions.  A growing number of Americans use firearms solely for personal protection and home defense.

Respect:  Teller Rifles (TR) believes in individual responsibility and accountability for choices. Thus, TR focuses on the individual, not the weapon.  TR collaborates with government agencies, non-profit groups, and individuals to create a culture of respect and responsibility related to the ownership and use of firearms.

Rifles:  Teller Rifles hosts a variety of hands-on training programs for firearm marksmanship, gun safety and self-defense skills.  Specific programs include "An Intro to Handguns," "Safety Officer Training," "Advanced Training for Seasoned Gun Owners," "Concealed Carry Certification," "Tactical Awareness Training," adult competitive shooting events, and youth competitive shooting events. TR offers non-shooting training for youth.

More about Teller Rifles:

Teller Rifles is not just a shooting club. We are committed to improving the wellbeing and safety of Teller County, the state of Colorado, and the nation. TR's efforts have two overarching goals: first, to provide skills-based training to improve a gun owner’s ability to safely and effectively utilize firearms; and second, to create a culture of respect and responsibility for the use and ownership of firearms.

Teller Rifles website:  www.teller-rifles.org.
Teller Rifles email:  hq@teller-rifles.org
Teller Rifles Mission Statement imageTeller Rifles Mission Statement image
Teller Rifles History image
In November of 2017 a few of us got together and formed the Cripple Creek Marksmanship and Self-Defense Group.

In April of 2018 we had our first community meeting at Ralfs Breakroom in Cripple creek with about 25 in attendance. Our second meeting, in September of that year, was again at Ralfs with about 35. Our next was at the CC-V High School in February of 2019 and that time we had about 45 attended for a hearty pizza dinner catered by Ralfs.

Our growth and evolution have been slow but steady. For instance, our name: after we started off as a Cripple Creek-centric group, the addition of members from other parts of Teller County caused us to change our name to Teller County Marksmanship and Self-Defense Group. After struggling with this mouthful for a few years we decided to simply become the Teller Rifles.

Our slow-but-steady growth approach has also been evidenced in our annual gathering to shoot our weapons and enjoy our company. Our 1st Fall Shoot-Fest, at the Grainger ranch, had six Rifles in attendance and the 2nd had eight. This, our third year, we had twelve.

The growth in interest in Teller Rifles is also evidenced by our email list, now 498, of which approximately 410 are in Teller County. (It should be noted that we have members as far away as New Jersey, the Carolinas, California, New Jersey, Australia, and Brazil. Some have expressed interest in starting their own Rifles.)

As opposed to being the typical gun/shooting club, we always envisioned ourselves as a training and informational venue. To this end we have had an RSO (Range Safety Officer) certification class (2019); 4, Stop-the-Bleed classes (2020/21); and Situational Awareness training (2021); and a Handgun Introduction class and an Active-Shooter training session in (December 2021).

We are recognized as a non-profit organization by both the State of Colorado and the IRS. We are neither just a shooting club nor are we a radical political organization. We are a community of marksmanship and self-defense enthusiasts made up of strong men and strong women ready to face today’s adversity and challenges.

Our philosophy is stated in our motto, Rights - Respect - Rifles, and can be summarized as:

Rights
· Insist on Your 2A Rights
· Insist on Your Honor
· Insist on Your Dignity
· Insist on Your Liberty

Respect
· For the Law
· For All Others
· For Property
· For Your Weapons

Rifles
· Know Your Weapon
· Know How to Use It

Who are We?

We are the original Rifles started in 2017 in Teller County, Colorado.
We presently number approximately four hundred and ten and are a group of shooting enthusiasts with extensive military and law enforcement experience who wanted to band together to encourage a greater appreciation and use of firearms in our community while emphasizing education and training.

What are We?

Teller Rifles is neither just a shooting club nor are we a radical political organization. We are a community of marksmanship and self-defense enthusiasts made up of strong men and strong women ready to face adversity and challenge.

What is Our Purpose?

We are committed to improving the wellbeing and safety of our Communities, our States, and the Nation. We have organized to implement activities that have two overarching goals: first, to provide skills-based training to improve an owner’s ability to utilize firearms safely and effectively and second, to create a culture of respect and responsibility for the use and ownership of firearms.

2020/21 has shown us that what was normal yesterday may not be tomorrow. We are in a time of pandemic and widespread social unrest in a rapidly changing environment. In times like these, we may only have each other to rely on. TR’s is a great place to get to know each other and start to build and strengthen a community of like-minded folks who can form a dependable alliance sharing and pooling resources and risk.

Find a sense of community. Join friends and neighbors.
