    For almost four years, the stages I've written for our club have had a story or some reason to start a gunfight. I like to keep them short and try to include a little humor. Like this: Yesterday, my wife asked me, “Is it just me or is the cat getting fatter?” Apparently, “No, it’s just you” wasn’t the right answer. That’s what started the gunfight. Indicate ready by saying, "It's just you."

    This is an economic move!! Germany hasn't paid its part of the NATO funding. They don't contribute to funding like they should, nor do they contribute proportionally to troop numbers. The previous person holding the office refused to even ask for Germany's fair contribution and failed to even speak up for NATO at all!!

    We still say lines at the clubs I shoot at. I incorporate lines in all the stages at our matches. I've never written stories. I think lines add to the fun of the game. Many times the shooter will intentionally butcher the lines resulting in some laughs. I've butchered a few myself.

    The sheep generally do not like the sheepdog. He looks a lot like the wolf. He has fangs and the capacity for violence.... Still, the sheepdog disturbs the sheep. He is a constant reminder that there are wolves in the land. They would prefer that he didn’t tell them where to go, or give them traffic tickets, or stand at the ready in our airports in camouflage fatigues holding an M-16. The sheep would much rather have the sheepdog cash in his fangs, spray paint himself white, and go, “Baa.” Until the wolf shows up. Then the entire flock tries desperately to hide behind one lonely sheepdog.... Here is how the sheep and the sheepdog think differently. The sheep pretend the wolf will never come, but the sheepdog lives for that day. After the attacks on September 11, 2001, most of the sheep, that is, most citizens in America said, “Thank God I wasn’t on one of those planes.” The sheepdogs, the warriors, said, “Dear God, I wish I could have been on one of those planes. Maybe I could have made a difference.” Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, Retired.

    A month or so ago, someone started a thread about the origins of our aliases. Mine was taken directly from my great-grandfather, Charlie Van Bowen Harley, who served as a deputy US marshal out of Fort Smith, Arkansas in the late 1890s-early 1900s. This past weekend we were digging through old photos and came across a few. The first is Charlie at the courthouse, along with 11 other lawmen. He’s in the front row on the right, the only one without a neck tie. You can see the steps on which it was taken if you scroll through photos on this web site. https://www.nps.gov/fosm/learn/historyculture/judge-parker.htm Harley is my given middle name after my maternal grandmother’s maiden name. Thank you sharing this moment of family And alias history.

    Between the obvious political machinations I've seen among the local government officials, the repeated incidents of fraud and profit taking reported by various sources, and the constant changes in direction by leadership on several levels, (responding to the whim of an agenda driven media and certain political figures who find fault in everything the opposition does) I'm to the point of responding with civil disobedience wherever I find some ridiculous declaration or directive!! Certain political leaders clearly want to increase the public's dependence on the government by making it more profitable or at least comfortable to not go to work!! A good friend of mine who is also a SASS member and a decorated former soldier told me the other day that he is considering closing as many as four local businesses because he can't get workers who he was forced to lay off during the original shutdown to return to work!! They are making nearly as much sitting at home as they were before the lockdown!! He ain't no cheap, low paying employer either!! From a member of my band, a guy I've know for twenty-five years, who works as an auditor in the hospital industry, I learned that hospitals get paid large fees for identifying and treating patients with COVID 19. He went on to point out that the common cold and the flu are corona viruses and that both hospitals and other medical facilities and professionals are including cold and flu patients it the statistics that they are publishing! We're all familiar with the reports of people killed in accidents and that passed due to other natural causes such as heart attacks and strokes that are being included in death statistics as Covid victims if there is any evidence of infection!! These statistics are NOT being challenged in the press and are being pounded into us by politicians of a certain affiliation!! I'll be the first to admit and agree that this virus is dangerous!! I can agree that we should take it very seriously! What I DON'T and WON'T accept is the forced shutdowns and the restrictions and denials of the rights of healthy people to go and come and to earn a living and such!! This is unprecedented in this country, and we've had some pretty damned nasty stuff take a run through our population in the past 240 years!! EDIT!: I can't get away from the thought that, while this episode in our nation's journey through history may be legitimate in origin, it is being used to steal our rights and probably this election cycle!! The liberals and their minions have too often used any tragedy they could to promote and reinforce their agenda!!!

    07/31/2020 pm. "I wanted to share some good news with you. This past Sunday, Michele started getting muscle spasms in her right arm and leg that she could feel. She has been experiencing these all week. Today I received word from her nurse that she has gained weight and they are discussing moving the peg tube next week. I also spoke with her physical therapist and he said she walked 15 ft today using the parallel bars and with no assistance from the therapist. She is lifting her right leg and foot all on her own! I am so proud of her!"

    Yep, if you want a line spoken, then have it posted at the starting position. Some of us forget between the loading table and the starting position...........

    SCARY but here I am agreeing with Phantom again. At my age it's hard enough remembering the stages, much less the starting lines. If the line is written and posted where I start, I will say it, but if not written I say ready. I need all my memory to keep from messing up a stage. J.M.

    More than that, I think. We are sick and tired of the "experts" who during the first few months kept changing the story every few days. We are sick and tired of the blind panic by officials. We are sick and tired of politicians using it to press their agenda. We are sick and tired of orders that make no sense - stores over a certain square footage not allowed to sell vegetable seeds or plants, regulations so poorly written that in some places stores for a time weren't selling frozen vegetables. We are sick and tired of being told that a BLM or Antifa riot is safe from C19, but a peaceful protest against national house arrest isn't. We are sick and tired of people being threatened with fines or jail for sitting in a chair on the beach - but being told that they could sit in the sand in the same spot. Or that a fisherman may stand by his pole but not sit in a chair next to it. We are sick of things like a drive in church, with people IN THEIR CARS being hit with $500 fines for attending, yet pot shops and liquor stores open. And, the topper, just a few days ago, none of the people in the packed church for the services for Rep John Lewis are subject to the 14 day quarantine that ordinary people are subject to, AND that they were allowed to pack that church cheek-by-jowl in the first place.

    I can't think of anyone else running for that office who is as well qualified.

    Today we talking to the Dr in his office down In NM and his phone rang. ”Hello“, he says. I could faintly hear the voice of his receptionist say something. Then he says, and I’m not making this up, “ Doctor Who?” It was all I could do to remain silent. Took every bit of will power I had. He’s an Indian fella and probably wouldn’t have got it.

    I carry a S&W J-frame airweight with concealed hammer. It is light, reliable, and sufficiently powerful to do what’s needed. And I’ve fired so many thousands of rounds through it over the years that it’s as natural as pointing a finger and saying Bang.

    Bald Eagle, I'm making the assumption that you've replaced your main spring with a coil spring assembly. On one of my 73' I added a Pioneer coil spring kit, the stock had to be shaved in areas to make the kit work and fit. If this is what you are saying, it's quit possible that your stock needs to be fitted to the spring kit to allow enough clearance for the spring to travel to it's full length. If it's catching 30% of the time it's likely only a bit of material needs to be removed. In other words is your lever able to open fully on each stroke allowing the sear to catch on the hammer notch? When you remove the stock and lever the gun, does the hammer catch every time it's levered? If so the stock is the problem and needs material removed. Tully

    If they’re not gun savvy I would urge them to consider a J frame or Ruger. Without training and experience a semi auto is a problem. And I’m not talking the basic familiarity training you get at a ccw course.

    I was just called a communist moron for saying I don’t have a problem with voting by mail, as I have done for years. Call me Comrade Bob. And don’t use any complicated words when ya talks to me. Edit: The purpose of my post is just to illustrate the oft amusing if cretinous behavior of the keyboard warriors on the Interweb. (Not that it really needs to be illustrated) Not to spark a discussion on mail-in vs in person voting. I don’t care what anyone prefers. I also find it amusing that “Communist” is used by some folks anytime you disagree with them. I suspect most of them couldn’t define communist in coherent sentences.

    The Uberti 1860 Henry. Love it. Long, heavy, slow, but very cool! Someone asked why I was hiding the receiver. Bright sun. Mucho reflection made it look like a Phased Plasma rifle in the 40 watt range.

    20 years of 18 stages a month plus two annual matches each year. Managing websites for both clubs. Setting steel, building, fixing, painting. And working full time, raising a daughter and still having a social life. I feel fully justified in stating there's time "IF" folks feel its important.
