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

I've GOT to Work on My Split Times...

I shot my second Tucson Action Shooters Club pistol match this morning. Again, I didn't come in last - just eleventh out of thirteen shooters. I had only one malfunction - me, not seating a magazine properly - that cost me about ten seconds to fix, and possibly one position on the final score sheet.

I don't miss much at all, but my biggest problem is my split-times - the time between shots when putting two on the same target. I really need to practice getting that second shot off, and accurately, fast. I watch a lot of the guys "spray-n-pray," and it works for them, but most of them are using double-stack magazines with ten or more rounds. I'm shooting 8-round single-stack. I can't afford to miss, or I'll be wasting time reloading.

However, if you'll note: Larry M. James and I (who finished 10th 8th and 11th respectively) took second in the team events. I'm pretty happy about that.
