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

Match Report: Bowling Pins, 3/11/12

Today was a beautiful day for a match.  Ten people joined me in shooting the March match, seven brought Major guns, seven brought Minor guns, four brought revolvers, and ten brought .22's.  There were three new shooters to this match, which hopefully means that attendance will continue to improve.

Major was won by Jim Burnett with his Clark Custom pin gun.  I took Minor with my brand-new S&W M&P9.  I also won Revolver with my S&W 327, and .22 with my Ruger Mk II.  Not a bad weekend for a guy who just turned 50!  I think I could have won the overall match if I hadn't run out of 9mm ammo, but I did, and Jim Burnett took that match beating me two out of three for the win.

Next month I'm bringing a Major gun again.

Skip Blecker won the drawing, taking home seven dollars more than his entrance fee.  He got to shoot for free and got a little gas money out of it, too.  It had been a while since he'd attended one of these matches, but said that the last time he did, he won the drawing too.  Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good?

The next match is Sunday, April 8.  Hope to see you there.
