I heard today on local radio this morning that a fine organization was having some trouble raising the requisite funds this year to fulfill its promises. What stuck with me was, “$15 will guarantee a wreath.” There are several VMI men at Arlington. Need we say more? Give what you can.
By way of our friend John R. Murphy of FPF Training, another outstanding message from Gregg Ellifritz– Read it, bookmark it, read it again.
This is not a pretty subject, but Gregg Ellifritz of Active Response training (you’ll remember my AAR from his tac med course) highlights some of the major points from the official report. Here are my questions– How well secured is your children’s school? What is your school system’s SOP? How do your local boys in blue (or brown) plan to respond? And are they even remotely capable of doing such a thing? Does their union have a position? Are any teachers or staff permitted to carry discreetly? All good questions to ask, in open, public forums if necessary. No need [...]
Who has heard of such a thing?? I have, because this one’s mine!! So where the hell are YOURS??
FINALLY, a true Black Friday deal for gun folks, courtesy of AmmoMan: Our customer service team has been getting a ton of calls from folks asking for Black Friday deals. Well, we can’t blame anybody looking to save a few bucks. The problem is, the way this year’s ammo market has gone, there isn’t much out there we can offer a steep discount on when it comes to ammo. Then, it hit us: A way for us to offer ammo at a steep discount for shooters and not have to fight off debt collectors to do it. 9mm, .40, .45, [...]
To add to Brother Slater’s post below, here is something from a fellow who goes by “PsyOp Cop” (perhaps you’ve heard of him): As you sit down and enjoy your Thanksgiving, please keep in mind those who keep watch over you and your loved ones. Right now, sailors are standing watch on a frigate or destroyer, plowing the waters of the world’s oceans… or are underway several hundred feet beneath the sea. Right now, a pilot is flying combat air patrol over Afghanistan while soldiers or Marines below sit in a sandbag bunker of a lonely combat outpost, perhaps enjoying [...]
I went with my lady friend to The Nation’s Gun Show at the Dulles Expo Center today, the first visit in several months. It never fails to disappoint! With a limited budget and a short list of items to look for, we began in one corner and worked our way up and down the aisles. Passing quickly by the WWII memorabilia– although I must confess I’m *still* looking for Goering’s chamber pot, and am willing to pay top dollar for it– we got right into the ammo and guns, and all manner of things thereunto belonging. At the top of [...]
Today we commemorate the birthday of the late Eugene M. Stoner, US Marine, and inventor of the original AR rifles. Marine, I raise my glass to you. Let all who can, join me.
Well, of course the war, in the truest sense, will go on after 2014, because the war isn’t finished there. Just because one party says it’s done, doesn’t mean it’s over. Mars don’t care about your stupid calendar. Nevertheless, we have this from NBC news: KABUL – While many Americans have been led to believe the war in Afghanistan will soon be over, a draft of a key U.S.-Afghan security deal obtained by NBC News shows the United States is prepared to maintain military outposts in Afghanistan for many years to come, and pay to support hundreds of thousands of [...]
See previous post, “’89 Alumnus’ Fundraiser for Service Dog” for background. BR Tom Hamner gave us an update today: Elizabeth [daughter] will be selling raffle tickets at Green Top on Nov 23.
