    Idiot Sheep Still Standing In Line At Aldi's

    Kids can't have graduations - but they can go protest in crowds. Perhaps the high schools should have called it a "protest day" and handed out diplomas instead of bricks. That would have been OK.
  2. 👏 I like the concept. Gray lives matter.
  3. I used to shoot Police Pistol Combat {PPC} with the Tioga Sheriffs Dept. out in Oswego. 60 rounds at 7, 15, 25 and 50 yards; strong and weak hand, single action and double action (revolvers back then) in timed-fire events at NRA B-27 targets. The Intent was to keep the Sheriffs in practice (they had to qualify with minimal scores) and the "amateurs" gave them some competition. Since then I've attended a couple classes with Rochester Personal Defense (as did my wife) who instruct at the Greene Sportsman's Club on occasion with my concealed carry pistol. As you say - it's imperative to know exactly how to draw it and use it. And practice friequently. They use the IPDA target or a plan, white two-rectangle target (you shoot for center mass - as M_Sable mentioned). As to the "aimimg" score rings being too low on a B-27 - not really an issue. I bowhunt with sightless recurves and am used to "picking a spot" on a plain, brown, unmarked deer. I aim at a tiny spot on a target. Obviously, for scoring, you want it in the center. Foam 3-D deer targets have the same flaw. The scoring rings are on the outer skin but the inner organs will not be, and angles/elevation changes where you would want the arrow to pass. They can lead to bad habits. That said, you catch a 9mm Gold Dot HP in the sternum it will take some fight out immediately. And two initially as fast together with aim-recovery as possible. So if you do start a little low with #1 then #2 will likely be a little higher. The time to decide you are mentally capable to shoot another human is before you start shopping for a defensive weapon.

    Citizens With AR15’s Protect Salem Storefronts During Protest

    Hooey. "Someone might get killed" is WHY you have a firearm for defense. The plan is it be the assailant/burglar. If you have a designated home defense arm it should be quickly accessible, preferably with you at the time an emergency occurs. I don't believe we have a phone app yet for a warning call before your home is broken into. Fingerprint ID better recognize you AND your wife for defense. My Pixel 3a "smartphone" recognizes my fingerprint about 50% of the time to unlock it. No thank you. Undependable when needed. Nothing that requires a battery is part of my defense plan except flashlights - and those are placed throughout the house (we loose power frequently). If you have children by all means keep firearms locked up. But if the ammunition is in another room you might as well not have it for defense. We have chickens and when we hear a ruckus in the coop or run I'm out the back door in seconds with a loaded firearm. But then we do not have children in the house. Even so, there are trigger locks on my designated hunting firearms. This message approved by: Seconds Count Second Amendment Citizens

    Minneapolis Burning- The George Floyd saga

    - - Martin Luther King, Jr. I have a dream that someday we will judge people by whether they loot a liquor store, electronics store or grocery store in times of unrest.

    Just curious - does John have children? What is his interest in school policy?

    Arguing over which one gets to be the tail-end of the pony costume. Neither qualifies for the front. Maybe now we can get the Rockbottom Bullheads.

    Andrew Cuomo - America's most prolific serial killer

    Who sent the pre-veterans off into battle in the first place? "When swords are waved and trumpets blow . . . some will not return, you know?" I agree that veterans should receive care if they cannot afford it. Just like everyone else. 83% of the adult population are not vets. Many of them have problems as well. But for Cuomo - I have enough reason to dislike him just from the SAFE Act.
