How Much Do You Train At Shooting?

I have a friend and fellow gun enthusiast who has a very clear statement about firearms training:   Every round you fire should have a training value attached to it.

I love going shooting.  I could just plink away all day long with a .22 and a bucket of ammo.  But shooting is not training.  Training will save your life.

I was thinking about this the other night as we were talking about our day of shooting at our bi-weekly IDPA event.  In teaching shooters to perform the “One-Hole Drill,” one needs to remind them to focus intently on all their marksmanship fundamentals – focus on the front sight, press the trigger until you get that surprise break and so on.  But practice does not make perfect. Perfect practice makes perfect.

Eric Holder Says We Have No Right to Guns

Attorney General Holder says:  “WE HAVE NO RIGHT TO POSSESS GUNS.”

Guess they were not happy with the poll results the first time, so USA today is running another one…Vote now below…

Attorney General Eric Holder, has already said this is one of his major issues.  He does not believe the 2nd Amendment gives individuals the right to bear arms.  Afterall, that is the basis for his twisted scheme to run guns across the border to Mexico in his bungled scheme Project Gunrunner. 

This takes literally 2 clicks to complete. Please vote on this gun issue question with USA Today. Then pass the link to this post to all the pro-gun folks you know. Hopefully the results will be published later this month.

Here’s what you need to do:  First – vote by clicking here:   USATODAY.com  Take 10 seconds and then pass this on.

Second- Send this link to other folks, then we will see if the results get published.  You can send them this link: http://wp.me/p1nJCF-gc

Original Content? What For?

Especially when all you have to do is copy what someone else has already written for you, why bother? It seems like most of all the other “most popular” blogs simply copy some other original content from some else’s blog or article anymore. And they are prolific – several posts a day. I must be going about this all wrong. Just rest your eyes and plagerize I say.

It appears that all you have to do is find some interesting subject matter somewhat close to your general line of blogging, start with a couple of sentences of your own and copy the rest. At least they usually put a link to the derivative post, but not always. But be careful you’re not copying a copy of a copy. But then who cares anyway?

I just read a blog post that was copied 100% from somewhere else. What’s more, it was featured in “Freshly Pressed” by WordPress. I thought I read somewhere in their guidelines for being selected, that you should use original content and original pictures, or at least give credit to the picture owner. They did have the original ‘by line’ but it was still copied 100%, including pictures.

I guess that’s why I particularly enjoy reading blogs by authors. There’s a good chance that they’re actually making up their own copy and writing it down. What a concept.

Granted, I have borrowed a line or two in the past because, well, sometimes there really is no better way to put it. But at least I do try to write down an original thought or two of my own or at least change the way an idea I read somewhere else is stated.

Even a lot of articles I find in the “mainstream” liberal media are just copied from some other source. I must be old fashioned – or I don’t get it – or both. Aw, who cares, no one is going to read this anyway.

Whew, I must be fired up. This makes two posts in one day for me. Of course, the first one took a couple of days to produce.
