"Shooting is 90% Mental" part 2 of 2
"In fact, these studies showed that our brain's
physical layout, how much space is apportioned
to certain tasks and how strongly one neuronal
firing is connected to another, is shaped by
experience and the life we live," wrote Begley.
"As Tim Conrad explained in his January, 2013,
article on muzzle flip [citation below], this
conscious signal can take up to 0.3 seconds from
recognizing the desired sight picture to moving the
trigger finger -- too long to capture the opportunity
for a perfect shot. However, if the signal is
initiated spontaneously in the cerebellum where
such procedures are thought to be stored through
repetition, the reaction speed is much quicker.
Signals are processed by the 'deep brain' almost
twice as fast as the problem-solving frontal lobes."
This is why Mike Maples says, when you practice
think everything through. But, when in competition
or combat, don't think, just attack the problem.
Part 1 of this article is at
"Muzzle Flip and Follow Through" [citation for above]
"However, from the time the brain decides it has a
good sight picture until the finger can put enough
pressure on the trigger to make this happen, is on
the order of 0.3 seconds. A lot can happen in that
I try to teach things, but that doesn't mean anyone
learns anything, because some people learn by reading,
some by watching, some by listening, some by doing.
So, I urge you to read, listen, do, ask questions, and
take classes from other instructors.

Truth is hard to come by in the liberal media.
School shootings are down, not up across America.
Obama lies when talking about guns.
***** Laws and Commentary *****
May I invite your attention to the
following train of logic.
Persons use illegal psychotropic drugs.
They claim religious freedom and appeal
to the Supreme Court of the United States.
The SCOTUS rules against them, basically saying
in the majority opinon (writen by Justice Scalia)
that you can't carve out religious exemptions to
federal law. Federal law has to be applied equally
Employment Division, Department of Human Resources
of Oregon vs. Smith, 494 U.S. 872 (1990).
To override that SCOTUS decision,
the U.S. Congress passes the
Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993,
which basically says that one can do any crazy
stupid thing one wants to do because the government
should not burden religious practices.
(Why would a Democrat controlled Congress pass a
religious freedom act? Remember, the Congress
had been contolled for 40 years by Democrats
before Gingrich lead the Republican revolution
in 1994. The answer is that politics is not
about ideology, it's about revenge and
punishing your political enemies.)
The Democrat controlled Congress passes the
Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare), which mandates
drugs that a woman may use to abort her baby.
Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties
appeal to the SCOTUS, arguing that ObamaCare
violates their religious beliefs (they object
to baby murder). The SCOTUS rules in favor of
Hobby Lobby, saying in the majority opinion
(written by Justice Alito )
that the ObamaCare mandate violates federal law
(the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993).
Burwell, Secretary of Health and Human Services,
et al. v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., et al (2014).
The opinion is written very strangely
because Justice Alito knows that the Court
is setting a precedent and
that the ruling will be revisited many times.
The opinion does not say that the ObamaCare
mandate is unconstitutional (because the
government is not establishing any religion).
The opinion says that the mandate violates
Okay, Staff, so what does this have to do
In the United States, all you need to have
a religion is a belief.
So, by the SCOTUS's interpretation of the
Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993, a
legal precedence has been set that
my religious belief that I must keep and bear
arms overrides any federal law burdening
my religious practice, unless the Government
“demonstrates that application of the burden
to the person —
(1) is in furtherance of a compelling
governmental interest; and
(2) is the least restrictive means of
furthering that compelling governmental
But, the 2nd Amendment establishes that the
government has no compelling interest in
infringing upon my right to keep and bear arms.
That's why the four liberal justices
said that the decision is of "startling breath".
They can clearly see what's coming down the pike.
