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.

National Ammo Day

For those of you unaware today was National Ammo Day.

Despite the fact that I was scheduled to work from 0400-1000 and 2300-0600 along with a nice stressful medic class (we did IVs and that involved your humble host getting stuck with a needle, not such a good combo) and I still managed to make it to the shop for a little bit of ammo.

Ok, so the National Ammo Day guidelines say at least 100 rounds, I went a little above that, although not as much as Jay G did.

Task force seeks ban on Assault Weapons...

Is the headline in the Washington Post today.

Nevermind the fact that the so called "assault weapons" are semi-auto weapons that look scary. 

Nevermind the fact that the drug cartels are getting their full auto weapons from the corrupt Mexican government (military and police).

Well, my answer is simple.


Your move.


Late Runs...

Everybody who works in EMS hates them.

I don't particularly mind staying late for an emergency run, I understand that people can't choose when to have a heart attack, or get hurt.

Staying late for a transfer just drives me FREAKING nuts, and I'm likely to start something along these lines:

Quote of the Day:

regards to Socialized Healthcare (yes, it's socialized, telling
yourself anything different is lying to yourself and everyone else.)

I heard an analogy on the radio the other day that I want to
expand.  Imagine healthcare is an automobile. Our car is the best car
in the world. In fact, it is so much better that when people with other
cars really need to drive somewhere important, they come and use ours.
 However, our car does have some problems. It needs a new set of tires
and maybe a new transmission.  So to continue the analogy, the proposed
reform is to take our nice car and replace it with a shitty import that
gets bad mileage, has a terrible safety rating, was rated Worst Buy by
Consumer Reports, and costs twice as much.  In fact, it costs so much
more that we really don’t know how we’re going to be able to afford the

Fort Hood Shooting, etc.

If you're not living under a rock, you know about the shootings at Fort Hood in TX last Thursday.

To say that I'm upset is a huge understatement.  The men and women who defend our country with their lives deserve our undying respect and gratitude.  I get more then a little annoyed when I read comments like the one posted over at Wyatt's place.

I responded to it in comments, so have a read for the full thing, but the second commend sums it up nicely:

"Tree, Rope, Terrorist Dirtbag.

Like Caleb Says...

Make a Hippie Cry!

And then follow the link to Caleb's and download the song on iTunes.  $0.99 isn't much, and it goes to a good cause!

That is all.
