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

Bowling Pin Shoot - Tucson, Sunday, April 11

OK, I'm going to do a "dry run" of the bowling pin match on Sunday, April 11 at the Tucson Rifle Club. The plan is to try to have the first rounds downrange by 8:00AM. I'm not charging entry fees for this one, other than the daily range fees if you are not already a member.

The plan is thus: Each shooter will shoot five tables of five pins, each run timed on a shot timer. Longest time gets thrown out, the remaining four are averaged. Once everyone's been through, shooters will be paired off by time to compete against each other, best two runs out of three. Winners from the first match-ups will be paired off, losers will be paired off. Lose twice, and you're done for the day, but you'll have shot at least nine tables, four in competition against another shooter. We keep going until only one shooter is left who hasn't lost twice.

Any repeating handgun in .38 Special / 9x19mm or higher caliber. Hollow-point, soft-point and flat-point bullets are far superior to round-nose "hardball" ammo. The more power, the better, BUT:

"Major" loads (.40 S&W and larger) will have the pins located 12" back from the FRONT edge of the table.

"Minor" loads (smaller than .40 S&W) will have the pins located 16" off the BACK edge of the table.

The front edge of the table will be 25 feet from the firing line.

Bear in mind, this is a PRACTICE RUN to see how all of this works out. If it goes well, I plan to run a match each second Sunday of the month.

We'll see how it goes. Hope you can make it.
