Shootin’ and liquor with Hunter S. Thompson

What I was doing last weekend

On my Facebook wall there is a lively debate going about whether or not I should have a) posted this and b) shot the goat int he first place.

Last weekend in the midst of all the Len Brown fall out I was also shooting goats…lots of them…about 80 for the weekend.

Here is one…I called him Leonard…a randy old goat with a big ball sack, but not able to withstand a 150gr ballistic tip .308.

He was one of two standing guard on a mob…we knocked them both over then got stuck into the mob.

Stupid hippies get their drone shot down

Can’t wait for some stupid hippies to try this here.

If I was duck shooting or pigeon shooting legally and some stupid hippies put a drone into range of my shotgun it would be coming down hard, especially if I was on private land and it was over it.

Performing private drone warfare against people with guns is plain stupid.

Suicide by cop [NSFL]

Content warning: Violence, possibly death

Applies as much to the media as to shooters

In 1918 Towsend Whelan authored a book about shooting and marksmanship called ‘The American Rifle‘. He was considered one of THE authorities on shooting in his day, Whelen’s advice on shooting and rifles should not be taken lightly even today.

I often use hunting/shooting analogies when talking about politics and his comments on marksmanship made me think about the state of media today, particularly when they all blindly head off after a story fed to them by a fool who really should stop dirty texting women.

In my work in the Army I often come across men of a rather low order of intelligence whom no amount of practice will teach to shoot, chiefly because they have never learned how to use their brains. Any man of ordinary intelligence, who is not physically handicapped, can become a good shot. To become an expert shot requires both a good body and a good brain. Most persons have the idea that eyesight is the important factor. Fair eyesight is of course essential, and may be obtained either naturally or by the aid of well-fitted glasses.

There are five essentials which must be attained in order that one may be able to shoot accurately. All instruction in rifle shooting is aimed at perfecting one’s knowledge and execution of these five essentials. These are as follows:

1. Aiming. One must be able to aim consistently, aiming each shot exactly the same. This requires the training of the eye in the correct alignment of the sights and target until the view or picture that they form becomes so indelibly impressed upon the retina of the eye that whenever the aim is the least bit incorrect it will be noticed at once.  Read more »
