Champion shooter loading up to head to range is kidnapped.

http://www.msnewsnow.com/story/29082...-kills-suspect

There is a lot of scattered info on this case but here is an overview of what happened.

A local MD, who is a very skilled competition shooter, was loading his truck to head to a shoot. He is approached by two armed men in his own driveway, forced to get his wallet and then drive to an ATM. The result was one dead scumbag and they are still looking for the other one.

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes!

Hopefully they find the other suspect bled out in a ditch somewhere near by.

New info on the skilled, competition shooter part. I'm glad he prevailed. Too bad the other guy got away.

This is like a goodnight story. I'm going to reread it before I go to bed tonight. I'll have nice dreams.

Pretty standard in many places. It doesn't really mean anything other than all boxes are being checked.

It'd be interesting to see what he shot the punks with? His match gun & load or defensive gun & load?

I'd like to know as well but seeing {victim was able to grab a gun out his truck } in the article leads me to believe it wasn't his match gun which would likely be packed away empty. We shall see. Good to see this however. Bad guys beware. tom.

A thread from a Mississippi forum about it. I assume they will post updates. It seems like the mans's skill was well respected and the guy who lived is to be considered lucky.

Wow. You really have to be a special kind of stupid to try kidnapping a competitive shooter.

I know that a lot of the shooters that go to my gun club travel unloaded. I don't know why. I always carry, even when I'm just wearing my competition firearm. I have plenty of unloaded magazines for the match, so it's no problem to have a loaded mag in my firearm for the trip to and from the range. Or just unload and load a magazine at the range. I've never thought it to be all that difficult.

Everyone travels differently. I always had my range stuff packed un-loaded. I also had a loaded gun on my hip for the trip to and fro. YMMV. tom.
