Introduction to the Shooting Sports

Original Mentor Page

In the effort to promote responsible gun ownership and rights awareness, I make the following open offer to any resident or visitor in the Evansville, IN area:

If you have never shot a gun and would like to try, I am willing to take you shooting free of charge. I will provide the firearms, ammunition, eye/ear protection and I will cover your range fees. I guarantee if you are on the fence about gun ownership and usage, you will not be at the end of the session. You will have fun and learn a little in the process.

Please feel free to contact me if you'd like to meet at one or the other!

If you live in a different area, please check this map for mentors that may be in your area.

Accept me

Why is it that some people feel the need to judge others?

I'm on my way home from my aunt and uncle's house tonight, and I've having a conversation with my brother. Now, my brother and I are about as far apart as night and day. And we argue and talk a great deal.

He has his things, I have mine. Mine just happens to be a love of all things that go bang. His seems to be putting holes in his body in wierd places. And saying that nobody has the right to judge any body else.

So anyway, we're talking about why I feel the need to carry a pistol. Why did I start carrying it after we moved here from New Jersey about half a year back.

My answer is simple, at least in my mind: I carry my pistol because in the event that I need it, it opens up options that wouldn't be there if it wasn't on my belt.

That is, I carry my pistol for the same reason I have an umbrella and a first aid bag in the car, I carry a pair of nitrile gloves, a CPR microshield, a knife and a flashlight. Day in, day out. From the time I get up in the morning, until I crash at night. Having these items on me, or in close attendance means that I am better able to react to situations as they develop.

He just calls me paranoid.

meh. Opinions are like _____, everyone's got one.
