I like it, but boy howdy, the Transportation Security Agency will have a fit about this stuff…
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.
From The-Way-Things-Ought-To-Be file….. signs at a small gas station from my travels. Enjoy.

Ten years ago I said if George W. was serious about National Security he would pass out fire hoses to neighbor Community Watch Teams if it was so important to throw money and infrastructure at the situation. More people would have learned more valuable skills in a few weeks better, faster, cheaper, as they practiced teamwork through (Fire) training drills than anything the Government has done in a decade!
Sadly it was not to be.
Seems the Thing To Do Today is to remember what you were doing on this date, ten years ago.
Really? One tiny decade later? Ask me on the fiftieth anniversary. That’s a decent amount of time for commemoration.
Instead we should be remembering what we weren’t doing on this day ten years ago.
If that is not enough red meat for you head over to Frank W. James for an after dinner mint:
Some of us, me in particular, find these ‘security searches’, where ever they are practiced, so demeaning and so senseless that our blood pressure rises and anger management becomes not a term associated with others, but a condition similar in many respects to breathing.
My internal anger response is pre-programed and subconscious.
A theme song for the ObamaNation Generation!
