When you have a good rifleman you have a man who is confident of his ability to take care of himself; the quality pertains not to the rifle, but to himself; so you have a man who can quickly be turned to doing anything. He is a hunter and fighter; not a specialist who is at a loss when his specialty fails him. “-H.W. McBride “A Rifleman Went to War”
Cooper’s Principles of Practical Riflery:
Make first-round hits, at unknown distances, from improvised positions, with a cartridge appropriate to the purpose, under time pressure. –Colonel Jeff Cooper, Gun Guru
This week marks the end of the second season of TOP SHOT on the History Channel
A dirty shame the show must end. It has been a guilty pleasure for me from day one. CLICK LINK HERE
None of the usual race gun/tweaked target load ammo/five-finger tactical magazine swap IDPA/IPSC crap here.
Production guns, production ammo, off-the-shelf holsters and equipment. Don’t like the factory trigger on a Ruger 10/22? Too bad. Shoot it anyway.
Just respond to a simple question: can you hit six bottles from an upside down position after you’ve been spun around strapped to a giant plywood wheel? Because in the real world you may be just exactly that disoriented when you need to shoot your best. Yeah. How does that super-duper race gun holster work for you in that scenario?
Credit where credit is due. Real hunting – two Chicago Tribune reporters take to the field and gun hunt their own venison.
They quickly understood the observation hunters have made for many years, to wit: Hunting is the most natural, organic, “sustainable” way to eat meat.
After several trips into the woods with no success, one reporter nevertheless volunteers to help skin, clean and butcher another hunter’s deer.
Yes, some would consider the video content graphic and may not wish to watch.
Youtube video description:
Chicago Tribune staff reporters Monica Eng and Barbara Brotman go on their first hunting expedition for deer, where they learn how to properly track, kill and butcher their prey. (Viewer discretion is advised)
People need to stop their obsession with Obama’s flaws, real or imaginary. He may in fact be narcissistic, incompetent or tone deaf. SO WHAT? He wins. He wins all the time, everywhere about everything.
He and his cronies have poured sugar into America’s gas tanks, thrown sand in America’s geartrain, poisoned our collective well and monkey wrenched everything that is not nailed down, glued in place and painted over!
Quick show of hands. Does anyone believe a Rasmussen Poll of the Kulaks in 1930 Soviet Union would have shown overwhelming support for Stalin’s Policies? SO WHAT? It did NOT MATTER!
The election in November will not change anything. For every handful of initiatives the new Congress manages to defeat he will have dozens of new initiatives fueled up and ready to launch.
ObamaNation continues without pause.
This time waterways. “How does that affect me?” you ask.
Simple, you might just be a criminal if you go fishing without permission from the almighty, omniscient, all-powerful Federal Government!
Rule by Executive Order!
Tyranny by another name is…..tyranny.

The high winds of Hurricane Earl have already hit the Capital of North Carolina as Raleigh reels from the impact of A STATEWIDE Emergency Decree from the Governors Office that essentially bans firearms on the eve of opening day of Dove Season.
As a highly anticipated annual social event celebrated by everyone who is not a Bolshevik in Exalted Public Office from the lowest plumber to the highest of high society white shoe Attorneys-At-Law to mess with North Carolina Dove Hunters is akin to publicly avowing a distaste for Moon Pies.
It just is not done.
Upon Governor Beverly Perdue’s declaration of a State Of Emergency on September 1, 2010 Dove Hunters, Concealed Carry Handgun Licensees, Target Shooters and all other gunowners cannot possess, transport or use firearms off their personal property as per N.C. Gen. Stat. § 14-288.7
For me to listen to Nitwit Propaganda Radio (NPR) is akin to some kind of Rambo Warrior endurance test- the longer I can hold my hand over the candle flame the sooner I will achieve a higher state of combat bliss.
Consequently it is not an exercise in which I often engage since I see no real reason to damage my trigger finger to achieve Rambo Warrior bliss.
But apparently I should listen more often because when I heard this story my jaw dropped.
Short story long: Mr & Mrs. Bolshevik fall in love with an isolated rustic Maine Cabin and rent it for a week’s vacation.
The folks at Steyr Arms have worked up a limited run of 300 Jeff Cooper Scout Commemorative Rifles.
Just as no one sells a good cast iron pot at a yard sale, authentic Steyr Jeff Cooper Scouts are rarely available for sale at gun shops or gun shows.
The only thing absent here is the walnut paneled cigar lounge with leather chairs and fireplace. An easily corrected oversight.
