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 first met Phil of Random Nuclear Strikes at last year's Gun Blogger Rendezvous. Phil told me that, after his first Boomershoot, he was hooked on long-range precision shooting, but where he lives he can't really do "long-range." So he's concentrated on the "precision" part. Accuracy Precision is the capacity of your firearm to put multiple shots into very small groups. Precision Accuracy is the ability to put your rounds right where you want them. (Outvoted on the definitions, but there is a reason it's called "precision shooting" - repeatedly placing accurate shots.)

Phil's choice of targets? Pool cue chalks (7/8" cubes) at 200 yards. A slightly less than half minute-of-angle target that, as he says, ". . . even when hit with something as slow moving as a standard velocity 22LR out of a pistol, makes a bigger poof than Charles Nelson Riley"

And now he has video.

I gotta try that.

UPDATE: In comments, Rivrdog recommends paintballs glued to the target board. Great idea!
