if you like your guns, you can keep your guns!!!!


we don't want to take your guns...... you're just paranoid


As Obama's ethicist explained to Chris Wallace when asked about the what Obama meant when he said if you like your doctor.....PERIOD!" Emanuel said what oboama meant, was 'you can keep your doctor...... if you can afford to keep your doctor".


Be sure to vote for the alternative to Trump in 2020 if you want to be stripped of your 2nd A rights!


The tidal wave of anti gun candidates is upon us. Don't act stupidly Nov 2020.

The scary thing is Trump, whether he realizes it or not is going to pave the way for the 2A to go away if the Red Flag laws get pushed through. Still won't vote Dem...

A and B.


A: If I am missing, I am expected to go to the range and practice, practice, practice. If I miss, hit an innocent bystander.....I go to jail.


B: At peak practice, it was 1000 rounds pistol a month and 400 rifle. Even on JROTC rifle team, the numbers ran 160-200 a week per shooter. Ammo is more uncertain than gasoline during a hurricane hence one buys as much as they can when they can. You never know when some change in the government regulations is going to dry up the supply.

Maybe we could do that to voting to make sure that people are really informed? Just a minor amount, say...$20 cost to cover the operation of the election.

Possibly off topic, but Iím actually kind of cranky that we got rid of the literacy requirement for voting.

Peak practice for me at the peak of my competition career was 1000 rounds a week with just handgun. I have noticed and learned early that being proficient with a handgun makes rifle shooting second nature. Most of my rifle shooting at the time mentioned was just to check sighting and proper function. My Dad use to say "rifle shooter can't shoot pistols. Pistol shooters can shoot rifles."


I've found this to be an accurate statement. After so much pistol practice I could pick up any of my rifles and cut the bull out of any target at any range within reason. 22 to 30 06.

Things vary.

I remember being on a ship's range, rolling deck, and after the bout, another officer asking me, "WOW! Where did you learn to shoot like that?"........JROTC rifle team for three years. Now, I don't recall what we were shooting, it may have been 1911, it may have been M-14, but I am pretty good with either.

And things vary for then on the ship, now, I am not shooting bulls but the silhouette only.

Getting more back to this thread, I practice, pay, at a range for three main reasons. First, while I have land, before I can shoot, I would have to build a back drop. Secondly, I don't want to poison my land with lead. Third, by practicing at the range, I have witnesses to my dedication....in case I ever end up in court.

As far as ammo goes, I have it delivered to a store front. I've had that arrangement for decades for you never know who is looking over your shoulder. There is, however, an issue with having this kind of patron and that is, you have to agree with their beliefs or at least, keep yours quiet if they counter.
