    Don’t try this at home. LOL

    It is truly amazing how many people across the USA are superbly proficient with firearms.

    Don’t own a gun? Want to try using a gun? Find a range near you and check it out. Most shooters love to introduce new people to the sport.

    See Fire Sale image in the right column. I would guarantee the person wearing the tank top would love to loan you a gun. And, help you learn to fire it safely and accurately.

    @Terry: …and when you DO go to the range, wear something that gives a bit more cover than that tank top. Your first piece of hot brass down the collar will help you calibrate your wardrobe, right quick. And convince you of the virtues of good trigger discipline, even quicker.

    I didn’t count but that was a broad range of firepower right there. Been aware of this guy for more’n 20 years. Musta been 20+ different guns. I don’t even own a revolver, but I’m going to.

    Jerry makes the case quite succinctly.
    I especially liked when he said, “I’m not going to tell you who to vote for. That would be insulting.”

    Contrast to an old friend and donkey party supporter, who said to me, “You can’t vote for Trump.”
    Wanna bet? Was my reply. It is that sort of condescending arrogance from the left which I so deeply detest.

    And he’s right, about the guns.

    Why Did it Have to be … Guns?
    by L. Neil Smith

    Over the past 30 years, I’ve been paid to write almost two million words, every one of which, sooner or later, came back to the issue of guns and gun-ownership. Naturally, I’ve thought about the issue a lot, and it has always determined the way I vote.

    People accuse me of being a single-issue writer, a single- issue thinker, and a single- issue voter, but it isn’t true. What I’ve chosen, in a world where there’s never enough time and energy, is to focus on the one political issue which most clearly and unmistakably demonstrates what any politician — or political philosophy — is made of, right down to the creamy liquid center.

    Make no mistake: all politicians — even those ostensibly on the side of guns and gun ownership — hate the issue and anyone, like me, who insists on bringing it up. They hate it because it’s an X-ray machine. It’s a Vulcan mind-meld. It’s the ultimate test to which any politician — or political philosophy — can be put.

    If a politician isn’t perfectly comfortable with the idea of his average constituent, any man, woman, or responsible child, walking into a hardware store and paying cash — for any rifle, shotgun, handgun, machinegun, anything — without producing ID or signing one scrap of paper, he isn’t your friend no matter what he tells you.

    If he isn’t genuinely enthusiastic about his average constituent stuffing that weapon into a purse or pocket or tucking it under a coat and walking home without asking anybody’s permission, he’s a four-flusher, no matter what he claims.

    What his attitude — toward your ownership and use of weapons — conveys is his real attitude about you. And if he doesn’t trust you, then why in the name of John Moses Browning should you trust him?

    If he doesn’t want you to have the means of defending your life, do you want him in a position to control it?

    If he makes excuses about obeying a law he’s sworn to uphold and defend — the highest law of the land, the Bill of Rights — do you want to entrust him with anything?

    If he ignores you, sneers at you, complains about you, or defames you, if he calls you names only he thinks are evil — like “Constitutionalist” — when you insist that he account for himself, hasn’t he betrayed his oath, isn’t he unfit to hold office, and doesn’t he really belong in jail?

    Sure, these are all leading questions. They’re the questions that led me to the issue of guns and gun ownership as the clearest and most unmistakable demonstration of what any given politician — or political philosophy — is really made of.

    He may lecture you about the dangerous weirdos out there who shouldn’t have a gun — but what does that have to do with you? Why in the name of John Moses Browning should you be made to suffer for the misdeeds of others? Didn’t you lay aside the infantile notion of group punishment when you left public school — or the military? Isn’t it an essentially European notion, anyway — Prussian, maybe — and certainly not what America was supposed to be all about?

    And if there are dangerous weirdos out there, does it make sense to deprive you of the means of protecting yourself from them? Forget about those other people, those dangerous weirdos, this is about you, and it has been, all along.

    Try it yourself: if a politician won’t trust you, why should you trust him? If he’s a man — and you’re not — what does his lack of trust tell you about his real attitude toward women? If “he” happens to be a woman, what makes her so perverse that she’s eager to render her fellow women helpless on the mean and seedy streets her policies helped create? Should you believe her when she says she wants to help you by imposing some infantile group health care program on you at the point of the kind of gun she doesn’t want you to have?

    On the other hand — or the other party — should you believe anything politicians say who claim they stand for freedom, but drag their feet and make excuses about repealing limits on your right to own and carry weapons? What does this tell you about their real motives for ignoring voters and ramming through one infantile group trade agreement after another with other countries?

    Makes voting simpler, doesn’t it? You don’t have to study every issue — health care, international trade — all you have to do is use this X-ray machine, this Vulcan mind-meld, to get beyond their empty words and find out how politicians really feel. About you. And that, of course, is why they hate it.

    And that’s why I’m accused of being a single-issue writer, thinker, and voter.

    But it isn’t true, is it?

    To Mike’s comment about hot range brass;
    While working as RSO years ago, I watched a shooter catch a piece of hot brass directly in his exposed plumbers crack! Big old fat boy with his drawers hanging down and the crack showing, sitting at the bench next to the guy shooting the auto-ejector. I never knew fat boys could jump so high or dance so wild.

    and Ghost, L. Neil Smith is a national hero and a treasure.

    We don’t have much to brag about here in northeast Louisiana, but Jerry Miculek is the real deal.

  • azlibertarian October 14, 2020, 3:21 PM

    …It is truly amazing how many people across the USA are superbly proficient with firearms….

    You’re right that there are many, many common folk who are very proficient with firearms. But what I think is amazing is that I (and I suspect most of the assembled crowd) could take an absolute novice to the range, hand them an AR-15, and in one afternoon, have them banging the steel at 100 yards. Shooting well is a skill that takes some time to develop and constant repetition to retain, but shooting adequately is (generally) quite easy to achieve.

  • Missy October 14, 2020, 4:06 PM

    I have been shooting at the range on my beau’s farm. I started out in his stand with my 22 long rifle with a scope. Fun, and accurate. Then I was handed an AR15 to try. Now that was FUN on a new level. Then his semi automatics, fun, but not quite right for me. I have very small hands. Then the revolvers. A few of you suggested a revolver back when I asked for suggestions here after some lowlife banged on the door of my rural house at 2 a.m. You were right. True love is now a 38 revolver.

  • Auntie Analogue October 14, 2020, 6:24 PM

    Now there’s a man I’d love to spend a day at the range with, followed by a long evening of chewing over with him what I may have done incorrectly and what I should have learned during that day.

  • Terry October 14, 2020, 6:40 PM


    My wife and I own a shooting/training range in Nevada. Yes, it takes much practice to get really, really good at much of anything. Becoming proficient with a weapon of any variety takes a mental attitude and will power. There is a vast difference between marksmanship and fighting skill. My comment above is for the purpose of introduction to firearms.

    Sonny, linked below is an example of what a fighter is. Guns are simply a tool in the tool box.

    @Mike Anderson-

    Yep, hot brass can be a . . . . pain.

    Please don’t suggest that the ladies cover up at the range. The guys will be disappointed.

    How about this system for hot brass protection AND fun for the guys watching:


    Works for me, yes sir.

  • ghostsniper October 15, 2020, 4:32 AM

    When my neighbor and I get together for a shooting session at the farm we usually have at least 2 cameras set up on tripods filming close-ups of our hands and body from the left and right. While shooting the time frame is short and it’s easy to not notice little things but they are revealed after the fact in the films.

    When shooting my Beretta 92FS my shots were diving to the left slightly and when watching the film on slo-mo I discovered that if I use the “pad” of my index finger instead of the tip the diving disappears. The reason is that the tip placement tends to push the gun to the left (I’m right handed) right as I’m squeezing the trigger. By changing the finger placement so that the pad is used instead it tends to pull the trigger rearward instead of to the left as the tip is want to do.

    Similarly, by tightening my grip with my right little finger on the lowest part of the grip helps keep the gun level during recoil causing faster, more accurate follow up shots. These things, and many more, have been revealed upon viewing the films with highly critical eye after the fact.

    I have been a shooter of a wide variety of guns for more than 50 years but it has only been in the last 10 years that I have taken it seriously and using technology as well as other tools to find lots of little errors that lead to big errors and figure out how to correct or compensate for them. Probably the best tool for learning how to shoot better is a good partner (we’re not fags) that is attentive and wishes to be a better shooter too.

    With ammo prices as they are these days, and the probability in the near future of having to use a gun for defensive purposes it pays to spend whatever it takes in time and money to learn how to shoot well. More than ever, your very life could depend on it.

  • Alex October 15, 2020, 5:40 AM

    All, as a VietNam vet, USMC 68-69 and longtime Chicago resident I claim the right to speak my truth. I believe freedom is for the responsible citizen. I don’t believe gangbangers should ever have guns and if they do they should be executed. We no longer have the country of our Founders and Constitutional freedoms are barely recognized. Adams said the new document was for a certain kind of people and would not work for others. I believe the others are running the show and are bent on our destruction. Our freedoms will soon be completely gone. I no longer care to allow freedom of speech, firearms, etc to the enemy.

  • James ONeil October 15, 2020, 11:28 AM

    To paraphrase Gerard, Jerry ̶w̶r̶i̶t̶e̶s̶ ̶ speaks for me.

    Hot brass? Never had, nor seen any such problems, poorly designed extractors and ejectors?

    & yes I have through .22 pistol barrels up to the 155 mm Long Tom, fired a few rounds over the years, although I haven’t had any hot brass problems.

    So, no, I’ve absolutely no problem if any young ladies want to wear tank tops when shooting in my back yard. 😉

  • ghostsniper October 15, 2020, 12:12 PM

    Jim, I think they are referencing YOUR hot brass landing on someone else’s plumbers crack or cleavage. If that happens I’m guessing the victim is a novice at gun ranges and shooting in general. I personally have no experience with that stuff.

    Now welding rods, that’s another story. A friend was on his back welding a truck frame while my younger brother laid close by watching. The welding rod stuck for the umpteenth time and the welder got pissed and yanked it back, it broke loose from the frame and flew out of the handle and went down the front of my brothers t-shirt. Yeah, it left a mark.

  • Snakepit Kansas October 15, 2020, 6:34 PM

    At the gun range I work at, we give bibs to women with low cut tops. If you shoot long enough you are going to get some outlier piece of brass going where one does not desire. We’ve seen plenty of big ‘ol gals with bouncing titties when an errant piece of brass finds an opening in the clothing. It is an unpaid benefit of the job.
