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.

Sorry for the absense

Medic School/ Work / Sick is just wiping the floor with me.

I'm gonna go pass out, and maybe have a chance to blog tomorrow.

(It also doesn't help that I found a new author whose works I love!!!)

Hang with me, and we'll get back in the swing of things. Promise.

Tougher Gun Laws Would Not Have Prevented This Tragedy

I am truly sorry for the grief that this family is going through, but the simple truth of the matter is that the firearm in this instance was simply a means to an end. If the child was determined to commit suicide, then for all intents and purposes there is no way to stop him, short of putting him in a psych facility on suicide watch.

In all reality, the system failed this kid. The system being his parents, and his school and his friends. That is truly a tragedy, but prohibitting the population from owning firearms would not have fixed this issue. The child in question could have downed a bottle of Tylenol and destroyed his liver, or overdosed on illegal street drugs bought at his high school.

My smpathies to the parents.

Citizen's Academy

A blog post by Xavier reminded me of something that I have actually meant to talk about here in the past.

At one time, I was firmly convinced that I didn't want to work in the engineering field, that I wanted to take my four year college degree and use it to find a job in federal law enforcement. As time went on, and I never heard anything back from the federal positions that I applied for, I looked to the idea of possibly getting involved in local law enforcement.

When I first move to Indiana from PRNJ in 2007, I was firmly in the midst of attempting to locate full time local police work. I had the opportunity to attend the Evansville Police Department's Citizen's Academy in the fall of 2007. I was hoping that attending the academy would give me a leg up in the future.

The Citizen's Academy is a great educational experience. We attended sessions ranging from the motor patrol group, to the K-9 teams, to the SWAT, to the firearms guys, to the homicide detectives. It was an awesome couple of months. At the time, class was once / week for several hours in the evening.

If you have any interest in law enforcement, or just want a better look at what the guys in blue do for a living, what they have to put up with, attending a citizen's academy like the one that EPD does is probably worth your time.

I wish Xavier nothing but the best in his experiences, and may he teach us all something :)

Doggy Blogging

Took both of the dogs to the vet this morning for check up. The bill ended up being just north of $300 between the two of them.

Nutmeg's bill of health came back all good. We got some more heart worm preventative and got a booster for her vaccines.

Unfortunately, Samoa has some kind of respiratory infection, so we had to start her on antibiotics. She also has several types of intestinal worms that she needs treatment for. We'll pick up medication for that tomorrow because the stool sample we brought in won't be completely analyzed before they can give us the right meds. We also started her on heart worm medications.

Hopefully both puppies get and stay healthy, and we get to have lots of time together.

The same can be said about EMS, when you stop havi g feelings about the runs you're making, and the patients you're treating it's time to hang up the scope, or at least take a nice long break from it all.
