Attack on the Second Amendment

Too often people rely on their information from mainstream news and get caught up in the emotion following a tragic incident. We have to be sure that our 2A rights are resolute throughout time. This doesn’t mean we are heartless to the tragedy and emotions of the day; rather we want to ensure that our republic is strong and future generations are free from tyranny and oppression. There are many “concessions” being entertained that whittle away our 2A rights. While they may seem reasonable on the surface, any erosion of our Constitutional rights will be devastating for our country. All of these stand to protect us and serve as a backbone for the laws of the land.

Help! My Wife Hates Guns

I’m always surprised when I receive emails from men about their marriages although it happens pretty regularly.

Redefining Plinking

Because the name plinking is derived from the sound a .22 bullet makes on a target, it suggests that time at the range doing this activity is not serious practice time. You may even hear, “I’m just gonna go plink some rounds.” Any time you can get to a range and do live-fire shooting with any gun of any caliber should have some purpose behind it. Without focus you are just wasting ammo and potentially picking up bad habits.

On the Range: Nervous Newbies vs Prepared Pros

By Christi Conner Tate. At the close of my second year of competitive shooting, I am not a newbie anymore. I sat on the porch in the cold one morning as snow clouds hung low and dark in the north Georgia mountains where I make my home. With coffee in hand, I asked aloud to anyone who would listen, “Why am I making rookie mistakes?” This isn’t fun. “Who does that in the close of their second year?” Repeatedly, I could put my finger on a recurring problem rather than newness: it’s the lack of focus during the planning and the execution during the whole process of competitive shooting from the going to bed on time to ensuring my gear is together. I am going to bring back some elements of the nervous girl I banished because she’d been unable to eat or sleep until prep had been done. In my third season, I’m going to bring back part of that nerve problem: use my calm to be more efficient and work on focus and let the nervous girl the credit that she deserves and force me to prepare.

Best Knife for Every Day Carry

Every Day Carry (EDC) is anything you might carry with you on a daily basis. As the old saying goes, “Don’t leave home without it.” Ideas on what to carry with you will vary, but typically include cash, credit cards, ID, phone, first aid kit, your firearm, and your knife. The knife is a tool that covers a lot of uses. It gives you many abilities including hunting, making things and even protecting yourself. Knives are great because they never run out of bullets and even a dull serrated blade will do some serious damage. You can hit at minimum with the blunt end as well as use the sharp end to thrust, nick, cut, and tear. The knife is also a widely excepted tool allowing you to carry it just about anywhere you go. This makes the knife a must when it comes to all aspects of your EDC.
