Greenlee County Police Involved Fatal Shooting In Morenci Arizona (Video)


Greenlee County Police Involved Fatal Shooting In Morenci Arizona (Video)

Posted on 02 July 2015 by David Allred

I live in a pretty small community here in southern Arizona. If any of you have been to the Gila Valley, you know just how small it is. More on the Gila Valley later. The incident I’m about to show you happened in the even smaller community of Morenci Arizona.

Greenlee County Fatal Shooting Details

The fatal shooting involved a dispute between Morenci resident Chris Ingram and his estranged wife. Chris had shown up to his sisters house expressing his frustrations about his wife and her desire for a divorce. Chris’s sister thought that he might have been drinking.

The siblings then found his estranged wife with another man, which, at that point, Chris told the sister that she had better leave because things were about to get bad.

Officers received calls reporting that Ingram was damaging their vehicle and becoming hostile. They pulled Ingram over and attempted to speak with him, when Ingram appeared to be crouching over to conceal something on his lap. Officer Mennen asked him to step out of the vehicle, then Ingram began to fire on Mennen, and then turned his fire to Sgt. Mingura.

Two officers were injured during a fatal shooting in Greenlee County Arizona which occurred in January 2015. The incident involved Dep. John Mennen of the Greenlee County Sheriff’s Office and Clifton Police Sgt. Jason Mingura. 29 year old Chris Ingram died from gunshot wounds received after exchanging fire with the two officers on U.S. Highway 191.

Mennen was shot twice, once in the abdomen, shielded by his body armor, and once in the shoulder. Mingura was also shot twice, once in the hand and once in the buttocks.

Both officers survived the incident.

Best Remake of “The Cup Song” I’ve Ever Seen!


Best Remake of “The Cup Song” I’ve Ever Seen!

Posted on 07 January 2015 by David Allred

I’m not sure if this is going to help my reputation much, but for those of you who have seen the movie, “Pitch Perfect,” you’ll know what I mean when I mention “The Cup Song.”

Since that movie, teenage girls from around the globe have produced their renditions of this catchy little song. I guess it’s cool to know that you can create your own beat and sing at the same time. Heck, I’ve even caught myself singing it. (It’ll be hard to show my face in public now that I’ve admitted that)

I’m pretty sure every female under the age of twenty in my extended family has at some point performed “The Cup Song” in front of a live audience, at the latest family reunion or for hours at a time in their bedroom.

It’s a great pastime!

…and so is shooting guns! So, why not combine the two?

Check out the latest rendition of “The Cup Song” by Jim Huish of Ambers Drive.

The Double Barreled Shotgun

Posted on 03 February 2012 by David Allred

Another firearm favorite of mine is the double barreled shotgun, or what some call a side by side shotgun. Don’t get the double barreled shotgun confused with the over under. We’ll cover that at a later date.

The first double barreled gun dates back to the mid to late 1700’s and sported an over under look. They were a revolving barrel type of shotgun. Flintlock and percussion rifles were created with two barrels and a hammer on each side of the rifle. Back then, it was the most simple solution to sending more shots down range. If you want more rounds to fire, just add more barrels!

Jason Bourne with a Double Barrel ShotgunMy vision of the double barreled shotgun and it’s power comes mostly from hardcore action movies, like when Jason Bourne takes out a fellow assassin in the middle of a grassy field, or when Frank Castle of “The Punisher” wreaks havoc. One of my favorites is with Kurt Russell as Wyatt Earp as he takes out Wild Bill and nearly all of his men. And don’t worry, if you find yourself with a double barreled shotgun, walking forward at a slow pace yelling “NOOOOO,” or, “You tell them I’m comin’…..and hell’s comin’ with me,” you’re not alone.

Aside from movies, the double barreled shotgun has become a popular choice of weapon in video games such as Call of Duty and Doom. Ron Swanson of the TV series “Parks and Recreation” sports a double barreled shotgun. Even Elmer Fudd whips out his double barrel every once in a while. Heck, even Elmer Fudd pulls his out from time to time.

The double barreled shotgun is more than just a shotgun, it’s a symbol that has been used as a weapon of protection. I can’t picture too many people taking a side by side shotgun bird hunting. I’d bet it’s the weapon of choice for every Double Barrel Shotgun Pistolelderly man or woman across the south, when it comes down to home protection. Also, if you run across pictures in the 1800’s, it was often the weapon of choice by stage coach crews. It’s a piece of American history.

Double Barrel Shotgun T-ShirtWhen you pick up a double barreled shotgun, you just feel more manly. It’s the weapon that blows through walls and doors and can blow a man clean off his feet. You can find it in 10 gauge, 12 gauge, 20 gauge and even in a .410. Sawed off, two triggers or one, I’ll take one. Adding it to my Christmas list!

Also, here’s one of my favorite double barreled t-shirts. Click on the image if you’d like to purchase it.

I thought you also might like a few clips from “Tombstone.” Just the good ones, of course!

Use Your Pumpkins for Target Practice after Halloween

Posted on 02 November 2011 by David Allred

Halloween is such a fun and festive holiday. My wife and I have a blast taking our kids out to do some trick or treating. It’s great to see how excited they get as they run up to their first door to say, “Trick or Treat!” In my opinion, Jack-o-Lanterns are the best part of Halloween. The carving is a great family activity and all….but the best part of pumpkins is after Halloween is over. Don’t just throw them in the dumpster, use those babies for some target practice!
