Re: Hickok45 on Gun Safety

Of course, yes, I also told my cadets to never get close enough to a "prisoner" as to enable them to be within reach of your weapon.
That's a great way to become disarmed!

Re: Hickok45 on Gun Safety

A fine video, which unfortunately does not address reaction delay.
If you keep the trigger finger straight and alongside the gun you add a fraction of a second of delay to your ability to return fire or even to fire first.

I know I've told you about our cat Nettie, who will be two years old soon.

You've got to love technological advances.

Re: Girl Kills Gun Instructor with Uzi

Firing an aimed shot one at a time is a lot different than full auto.

Not Brothers

They are not brothers although they certainly look it! My youngest son Wil came up (from Massachusetts) to welcome his cousin Hongxuan who will be staying with us for a good while. Wil is twice as old as he.

Dogs don't smile!
