Rifle Skills, Never Out of Date!

29 Oct 14 “Time is precious stuff. Even a lifetime isn’t enough.” From “Some Other Time,” written by Leonard Bernstein for the 1944 Musical “On the Town.” Most famous rendition was Barbra Streisand’s from 2009 Observations of a Boer (South African of Dutch descent) Commando during the initial days of the Battle of Ladysmith (and […]

The “Three Invisibles!”

28 Oct 14 Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? A Latin phrase, traditionally attributed to the Roman poet Juvenal, from his “Satires.” It loosely translates to: “Who will guard the guards? Somebody, nobody, and who! In this Age of Islamic Terrorism, we all need to do an adequate job of maintaining all-around security. The “Three Invisibles” mentioned […]

No Guns in NY!

21 Oct 14 “Don’t wish me happiness. I don’t expect to be happy. Wish me courage, strength, and a sense of humor. I will need them all!” Anne Morrow Lindbergh Privately-owned guns in NY will now dry-up. NY’s vast army of erstwhile-unemployed bureaucrats have now decided that last year’s SAFE Act requires all “mental health […]

Bullet Performance

20 Oct 14 DPX in the field, from a friend and student in OH: “Sunday, I spotted a big groundhog (35lbs) as I was driving my tractor.

Dangerous Transportation!

Traveling with the FSM4!

12 Oct 14 Traveling with the FSM4: We just completed an Urban Rifle Course here in TX. I’m traveling with, and using my copy of the FSM4. It continues to run and run, with nary a hiccup. Light, handy, lethal, and easy to travel with! As I mentioned, we are releasing a series of videos […]


8 Oct 14 The new “Plague?” “Safety of the people shall be the highest law.” Cicero Not any more! Like the IRS, EPA, and other federal agencies, the CDC has been completely politicized and recruited (all too willingly!) to spend its time promoting leftist causes and never report anything that makes BHO look bad. Under […]

Steel Targets

6 Oct 14 Steel Targets! From a friend on the East Coast: “Yesterday, I was struck in the chest by a large bullet fragment. I was at a popular outdoor range. A shooter several meters to my right was shooting a 45 ACP pistol at a steel disk ten meters downrange. This was quite different […]

War Measures!

3 Oct 14 Advice from a friend on active duty: “Here we go!

LE […]

Modern Travel!
