(If you hunt, reload, camp, shoot, collect guns or need accessories for your existing weapons, go to Adventure Outdoors. You won’t be disappointed!!!)

Shooting advice from various concealed carry instructors.  If you own a gun, you will appreciate this.  If not, you should get one and learn how to use it.
  • Guns have only two enemies, rust and politicians.
  • It’s always better to be judges by 12 than carried by 6.
  • Cops carry guns to protect themselves, not you.
  • Never let someone or something that threatens you get inside arms length.
  • Never say “I’ve got a gun.”  If you need to use deadly force, the first sound they hear shoudl be the safety clicking off.
  • The average response time of a 911 call is 23 minutes, at 1400 feet per second the response time of a .357 magnum is nearly instantaneous.
  • The most important rule in a gun fight is: Always Win – cheat if necessary – you dictate who fires the first shot!
  • Make your attacker advance through a wall of bullets… You may get killed with your own gun, but he’ll have to beat you to death with it, cause it’ll be empty.
  • If you are in a gun fight:
    • If you’re not shooting, you should be loading.
    • If you’re not loading, you should be moving,
    • If you’re not moving, you’re dead.
  • In a life and death situation, do something…It may be wrong, but do something!
  • If you carry a gun, people call you paranoid.  Nonsense! If you have a gun, what do you have to be paranoid about?
  • You can say ‘stop’ or ‘alto’ or any other word, but a large bore muzzle pointed at someone’s head is pretty much a universal language.
  • You cannot save the planet, but you may be able to save yourself and your family.

I miss my Paige while she’s in SA. See you soon, Mackie!!! I love you!

A toast from my Irish roots:

May those that love us, love us;
and to those that don’t love us,
May God turn their hearts;
and if He doesn’t turn their hearts,
may He turn their ankles
so we’ll know them by their limping.
