Good Trigger Discipline circa 1961


Seven year old Child Actor Bill Mumy put all the usual Hollywood ignorami to shame in this 1961 Mattel Commercial when he demonstrated excellent pistol handling and trigger discipline! Watch the Youtube video carefully. The little tyke fires the pistol and makes a conscious effort to keep his finger out of the trigger guard.

We discussed normal Hollyweird weapon proficiency in the Tom Selleck kerfuffle of 2011.

Nick Vujicic, Genuine Tough Guy

Would that Chuck Norris be so lucky to be as tough as this guy.

Even if you are a minority within a minority of a minority, you can take lessons from a guy who is literally in a class by himself.

As the venerable Colonel Jeff Cooper observed: “Humans use their minds to fight, weapons are just accessories.”

Every day of his life Nick Vujicic has used his mind to fight.

Never say never again!

BarneyFifeocide! (Negligent Discharge)

Another Barney Fife moment out on the target range. An important cautionary tale for everyone. (Yes, there but for the grace of Heaven go we all!)

Fortunately in this incarnation Barney Fife is alive and well, but must limp for a while.

Old proverb: Man with one gun know EXACTLY how to fire his weapon, man with two guns not quite sure……

I like this guy. He did everything well and conducted himself calmly and honorably.

We have discussed this before:

Weapons are not toys, not for relaxation or sport or entertainment, but tools to be treated with utmost respect and caution which have but one purpose: to harm some critter- with four or two legs- before they harm you.

As Sergeant Phil Esterhaus famously said: Let’s be careful out there!

Every Time You Use The Term “Assault Rifle” An Angel Dies!


Well, why not?

In that Gadawful Jimmy Stewart Movie “Its A Wonderful Life” the little girl at the end tells Donna Reed “Every time you hear a bell ring an Angel Gets It’s Wings or some such nonsense.

And if chiiiiildren can invent urban myths so can I.

So let the word go forth from this time and place to a new generation of Americans: We, The People arm ourselves and our countrymen with PATROL RIFLES or MODULAR RIFLES or COMPONENT RIFLES or even (*gasp*) MILITIA RIFLES.

But we DO NOT, NEVER HAVE, and NEVER WILL, accept or use the derisive term A$$au#LT Rifle to describe those implements which are vital to preserve our liberty. Henceforth, never let the term pass your lips,even to make a point.

People who should know better do not adopt the language ( and underlying premise) of their mortal enemies for then they have lost the battle even as they win the debate.

When George Sullivan created the original prototype AR-10 which later became the M-16 he chambered it in .308 and field tested it by HUNTING. YES!

So the original Prototype MODULAR COMPONENT RIFLE was used TO HUNT GAME.

So just Stop all the A$$au#LT Rifle NONSENSE! Stop IT NOW!

Learn it. Love it. Live it.

Tantalizing Excerpt:

Next G.I.Rifle? By Eugene Jaderquist
March 1957
For eight years, California hunters have been unnerved by the sudden appearance of George Sullivan in the field. There is nothing peculiar about Sullivan himself when he’s out hunting. It is just his weapons that prompt a fast double-take. Most guns just don’t have light, silvery barrels, bright red breech actions, and Kelly green stocks. But Sullivan’s guns are a little unusual in more ways than color. They are the advance guard of a major airplane company’s entry into the gun-making field.
