Real Gun Fights: Widow Shoots Intruder


Another instructive example for those who seek to understand the dynamics of thug encounters.

This woman retreated to her sanctuary of last resort – a bathroom while a young punk took every
opportunity to invade her home and even assault her. Fortunately she was relatively calm and
competent at the moment of truth.

Memorial Day: Remember Benghazi!




Plaques will commemorate the careers of Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods at this year’s Memorial Day observance, 2 p.m. May 27 at the Mt. Soledad Veterans Memorial, 6905 La Jolla Scenic Drive South.

Assigned to a security detail in Benghazi, Libya, Doherty, of Encinitas, and Woods, of Imperial Beach, were killed in action when they served above and beyond the call of duty in a terrorist attack that began on Sept. 11, 2012.

TOP SHOT McMillan TAC-50

Dustin Ellerman

Holy Mackerel!

Another TOP SHOT Spectacular!

From start to prone, self-educated marksman and Christian Camp Counselor Dustin Ellermann loaded, cocked and hit a moving target at 500 yards with a McMillan TAC-50 in 8.22 seconds!

That, my friend, is shooting! You must see this to believe it!

Did I mention winds were blowing in the 25 mph range?

Lest you think this was some kind of fluke, three other competitors shot the same course between 9-12 seconds.

And of course, one guy took five minutes and 14 cartridges.


William Norman Grigg- Oslo Bomber

Over at Pro Libertate William Norman Grigg brings his usual insightful analysis to the events of the past few days in Norway.



Roughly a decade ago, Al Pacino starred in a movie entitled S1m0ne, a cyber-era updating of the Pygmalion myth in which a film director creates an uncannily realistic digital actress. Despite the fact that “Simone” was a computer-rendered composite fantasy, the lustrous blond enchantress becomes a global pop culture sensation – a profitable illusion sustained through increasingly desperate acts of misdirection on the part of the director.

It’s tempting to think that accused Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik is a S1m0ne-style digital fantasy drawn to specifications provided by Morris Dees’ so-called Southern Poverty Law Center. Breivik used social networking sites to create a cyber-persona seemingly made to order for left-leaning “watchdog” groups. Available photographs depict the blond, stereotypically Nordic Breivik as if he were a dress-up doll, his face oddly unmarked and expressionless as he poses in a variety of guises – including Freemason garb and a scuba outfit.

In similar fashion, his recorded ideological pronouncements – the quotes attributed to him in the aftermath of the killing spree in Oslo and Utoya, and his bloated “manifesto” – could be the work of someone determined to embody every detail of the familiar caricature of the right-wing “hate criminal.”

Dr. Ruthless

Wow! Who could forget Dr. Ruthless, the legendary proponent of street level close quarters self defense?

Back when New Yawk City was an even bigger Hellhole than it is today (if that is possible!), Dr. Ruthless stood up, Ted Nugent Style, and celebrated the primal instinct for self preservation that is the birthright of every human being.

(Note: the audio is kaput, just mute the volume, the staged scenes are necessarily somewhat cautious but check out the assailants really thick padding! What you need to see is the bubble helmet and practice protection during the training sequences! Definitely a solid idea. Anyone who goes through this class will leave more prepared to defend themselves!)

William Shatner’s Aftermath: Bernhard Goetz

William Shatner interviews Bernhard Goetz-the New York Subway Hero on the webcast of Aftermath.

Boy howdy, this interview has something for everyone.

Consider… in 1984 a minimally trained,minimally equipped,minimally experienced city dweller arms himself. This in the days before fancy IWB holsters, IDPA, Thunder Ranch, Gunsite etc.

He covertly practices the skills he believes necessary to understand and when the time comes engages four targets, most at near contact distance,fires five shots, avoids two no hit bystanders and manages not to kill anyone! So much for one shot .38 Special stopping power!

His pristine grasp of the doctrine of provocative acts is at a level that should be more universal,even today,and after a quarter of a century he remains confident his actions were both successful and justified even though the NRA Fudd crowd and CCH Trainer Moralists may cringe to hear him speak.
