Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. That psychic discomfort is the price we pay for basic civic peace. It's worth it. It's a pragmatic principle. Defend everyone else's rights, because if you don't there is no one to defend yours. -- MaxedOutMama

I don't just want gun rights... I want individual liberty, a culture of self-reliance....I want the whole bloody thing. -- Kim du Toit

The most glaring example of the cognitive dissonance on the left is the concept that human beings are inherently good, yet at the same time cannot be trusted with any kind of weapon, unless the magic fairy dust of government authority gets sprinkled upon them.-- Moshe Ben-David

The cult of the left believes that it is engaged in a great apocalyptic battle with corporations and industrialists for the ownership of the unthinking masses. Its acolytes see themselves as the individuals who have been "liberated" to think for themselves. They make choices. You however are just a member of the unthinking masses. You are not really a person, but only respond to the agendas of your corporate overlords. If you eat too much, it's because corporations make you eat. If you kill, it's because corporations encourage you to buy guns. You are not an individual. You are a social problem. -- Sultan Knish

All politics in this country now is just dress rehearsal for civil war. -- Billy Beck

OMG! A Brit With a Gun!

I started him off with my 10/22.

I wish I'd taken a video - it was fascinating watching the muscle-memory kick in. After every shot his hand automatically moved to cycle the bolt, but he was shooting a semi-auto. It took about ten rounds before he finally overcame the urge. I then moved him up to the Para GI Expert.

Until Friday, he'd never even seen a real 1911. He ran three or four mags through this one. He was the first to shoot it (after me, of course), but not the last. We put about a hundred rounds of hardball through it Friday without a single hiccup. (Thanks to The Packing Rat for the photo. Derek's a pro.)

Then I moved him up a bit on the power level:

He must've liked it. He went on to shoot The Packing Rat's California-compliant Saiga.

On Saturday we shot a couple of stages of Steel Challenge. Our "recruited native asset" with a Ruger 22/45:

It looks like he knows what he's doing, doesn't it? He said afterward he plans to set up a Steel Challenge match in London using AirSoft pistols.

I think he's serious!
