'Chill-Out' Corner



Since the "New Look" change mid 2011 - we are still thirsty for feedback but sadly get very little. Can we ask for one or two regular visitors to volunteer to regularly report, mentioning any link or display problems, and Email us with info. Some errors can be hard to track down and so outside help is most useful.

"Gun of the week" has been running for some time - let’s hear from you. Like - not like? Any other suggestions?

Thank you - JPFO Webmaster.

Alerts & "Bounces"
Points to note with the JPFO alert emails.

Alerts can sometimes bounce!

Note - (July 2011) We notice sometimes that out of the thousands of alerts sent out, there can be rather high numbers of "bounces" - on checking with our provider it would seem that now and again an ISP makes some change to their email settings and that can result in non-delivery to those using that ISP.

If it happens to be something like Hotmail, Yahoo or even gmail - then many can be affected temporarily. For those who miss out on one of our sendings, we apologize, but the provider does try to stay ahead of things when they can by making changes in their own settings to reflect ISP changes and so control the bounces, which we like to see as zero!

If in doubt, please check the alerts archive to make sure you have not missed anything. Also, if you get alerts do please open them!

Chris, Webmaster.

Why Join JPFO?

JPFO tries to be an educator by supplying "intellectual ammunition" - the idea being that we provide information for folks to use the best they can, to further the fight against "Gun Control". We are tax exempt and cannot lobby or endorse but, for sure we can give you the fodder you need such that you can do your bit the best way you can. The fight to preserve our 2A is vital.

Researching to find data, writing articles, as well maintaining the site - all takes time and expense and so, help towards keeping this active and vital is essential. We would encourage anyone who finds our efforts worthwhile to become a member, or even donate - it all helps us survive and continue the hard fought battle.

Please dig deep, use the search, explore through our menus - find even old pages and pass them on. Dissemination of material is invaluable.

Red’s Trading Post



Red’s Trading Post is Idaho’s oldest gun shop. It’s also currently a target for the BATFE. In court documents filed in an effort to shut Red’s down, the agency exaggerated minor paperwork errors while hiding other relevant information.

But Red’s is fighting back. In addition to the coverage JPFO has provided on this outrageous case, Red’s has taken out ads in both radio and print to publicize their plight, and numerous articles are being written in their local papers. Red’s will also begin blogging their experiences, and owner Ryan Horsley has been invited to appear on the area’s biggest talk show.

Recently Red’s won an injunction to keep their business running. After Ryan appeared on our "Talkin’ to America" program to tell his story, Red’s was audited AGAIN the next day by ATF agents, including an area supervisor. Said the agents, "We’ll do this again and again and again …"
