Pat McNamara Pro-Tip: Finger on your Trigger
In case I don't mention it enough, let me reiterate,
I cite stuff from credible reputable sources that I
disagree with. Because, unlike our liberal friends,
I actually practice diversity of opinion. I disagree
with this trigger finger placement for single action or
striker action pistols. I believe it is only appropriate
for double action pistols or revolvers.

Grip Surfaces - To increase your ability to control
the recoil, and manipulate the gun, all allowable
grip surfaces should be stippled or coated with
skateboard tape, with the exception of the back
strap of the gun. The backstrap of the gun should
be left relatively smooth to allow the strong hand
to index the gun properly and slide up to a high
grip position on the tang of the weapon during the
***** Instructors *****
I heard a program on the radio on the way to
work this morning, 2/16/16. The speaker was saying how
gun schools and churches are similar in that some are
concerned with growing to maximize their profit and
so resort to entertainment as opposed to education.
Some are concerned with education and so teach
breaking bad habits to replace them with good habits,
study (research), practice (homework), and a lot of
thinking in general, things which most people don't
want to do. So, such schools or churches don't grow
I've been to the big gun schools, some have
massive internet audiences. But, looking at my notes
from the past decades, I see that I've learned the
most from small classes (often, I was the only student
who showed up for the class) with NRA instructors and
non-NRA instructors teaching in their homes or small
facilities, because they loved helping others.

Lifesaving Advice From Dave Canterbury
Trapping and fishing is more effective than hunting.
Survival in adverse conditions.
Tool heavy mentality.
All skills are perishable.
I don't mind that you don't care how to make a fire,

becomes important to you, I'll teach you how to do it.

Police Officer Prosecuted [and convicted] for a Negligent Discharge
I don’t know ANY [police] academies ANYWHERE in the
country that turn out competent gunfighters upon
graduation. I was the best shooter in my academy
class, but looking back, I didn’t know SHIT about
shooting when I graduated the police academy. I took
the initiative to seek out quality professional
firearms training on my own time and my own dime.
Most cops will never do that. Consequently, most cops
NEVER become truly competent shooters. Those who do,
learn the skills on their own DESPITE their police
training, not BECAUSE of it. Police firearms training
is universally abysmal (with a few very small

The Obama administration is intentionally

because they know the sheep will cry out for the
government to "do something", "protect us", etc.
This is what the sheep did after the 9/11 attacks,
