Dave Mack fell in love with radio at an early age, and after 30 years the affair continues. His radio career has taken him to some great cities but his home has been in Alabama since 1994. Dave was introduced to Alabama in a unique way while attending church at Goshen United Methodist Church on Palm Sunday 1994 when a tornado hit the church killing more than 20 and injuring many more, including Dave. Having an up close and personal experience with Severe weather, Dave has provided long form severe weather coverage on several stations and is involved with public speaking about severe weather preparedness. Dave Mack has lived a unique life that includes stand up comedy as well as hosting his own regional television show, and most recently added "Feature Film Actor" to his resume having co-starred in the feature film "Prodigal". Dave is scheduled to star in two additional feature films in 2012. Dave and his wife LaDonna (a lifelong Alabama resident) have 4 children and multiple pets including Dave's special friend....his chihuahua "Tanner".
Gun shops are running low on ammunition from a run by customers fearful of potential gun-control legislation, according to gun retailers and customers.
Prices have more than doubled over past year in some shops, retailers are putting limits on the amount a customer can buy, and some common types of ammunition, such as .22-caliber long rifle shells, are hard to get.
The National Shooting Sports Foundation, which represents ammunition makers, retailers, hunters and sport shooters, attributes what it calls "spot shortages" around the country to rising popularity of sport-shooting and hunting, and to people who are "keeping firearms for personal and home defense."
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in December reported recently that hunting license sales were up 9% from 2006 to 2011, reversing a 25-year decline. Michael Hampton, Jr., executive director of the National Skeet Shooting Association and the National Sporting Clays Association, says participation in those sports, which includes up to 4 million participants in each sport, is growing 3-5% annually.
