  1. I didn't loose anything there and I have no reason to ever go there. None, Zero, Nada
  2. It was nothing but a publicity stunt.Think how much it will pump up the attendance at his future preformances
  3. I was at a show awhile ago one of those one room deals. I saw a model 94 in the rack and looked at the tag to see if is was anything other than a 30-30 it wasn't but I stepped back and kind of laughed. The dealer asked me what the problem was a I replied that the price was pretty high. He got insulted and told me that since Winchester was out of business the gun was very rare. My answer was yeah they only made 5 million of them and there are at least a dozen in this room. Another guy was selling 40 S&W once fired brass for more than the local store was charging for loaded rounds. Some of these guys are really smoking some funny tobacco
  4. With the exception of the Bangor Punta days there is nothing like a S&W revolver
  5. For side matches at card table distances I guess they are hard to beat. For anything else they are an expensive boat anchor, horrible trigger pull, ridiculous size for a two shot gun and they are lucky to group both shots in the same county.
  6. This time the losers wrote it. That is why it's so inaccurate
  7. You guys sure drink some expensive hooch. Much to rich for my blood, i'm good with plain old Rebel Yell
  8. I started diving with a Blackie Collins blunt tip dive knife. I never saw a reason to change
  9. AGI videos with Bob Dunlap are as good as it gets
  10. One of the first things I always did when acquiring a new S&W was to polish the contact points and install a Wolff spring kit. They work well without making the hammer fall to light to be reliable
  11. And 138 LEO'S were LOD deaths this year but then again they were only LEO'S
  12. Do you mean like this place https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Dolphin_Prison
  13. Angels Envy is excellent a little pricey for everyday swilling but a great sipping whiskey
  14. We do stripe testing every month but only when the child is ready. Belt tests are individually scheduled and we will only let a child test when we are sure they will pass, and that we is collective meaning more than one instructor must think the child is ready. Stripe testing is free belt testing does have a fee
  15. The higher the belt level the longer between tests. White to yellow should be as least five months minimum. As the material becomes more involved and more is required at each level the tests are further apart. From brown to black will take two years probably close to three because all our material unlike some disciplines is cumulative. My black belt test took seven hours. Every student progresses at different rates so remember that your child may progress faster or slower
  16. They test for the next belt every 3 months? Run like hell!
  17. Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays doesn't matter to me it's the thought that counts
  18. White belt is the very basic starting place. You have to learn to stand before you can walk and walk before you can run. Every block, kick and punch must be learned and perfected before a student can move on. These are the building blocks that insure a strong foundation and must become instinctive. Some children learn faster than others, some are more athletic and some are more focused and mature. There is little more frustrating than trying to teach a child who doesn't want to be there. Don't get in a hurry every child progresses at their own rate. If the school promises a black belt in an unreasonable amount of time please find another school. There is no such thing as a nine year old black belt. If it's not earned it's less than worthless it's downright dangerous.
  19. We don't use 13 year old kids to teach or do anything else for that matter. There are schools that have the kids sweep and clean the dojo. That isn't us. My son started to teach children at age 14 but by that time he had been training for 6 years held a black belt and was never unsupervised. He was paid and his tuition was covered. He did teach five days a week after school but was home every night in time to do his school work. Working there was his choice and kept it up till he was in college and he will still stop in and teach a class or two if he is in town and his schedule permits. I don't see any problem with a 13 year old with experience helping the younger kids before class with their homework if she is compensated and supervised. We do get kids who are dropped off after school by the school bus and are there an hour or more before class so help would be appreciated. But this child isn't experienced. As far as talking to both parents that isn't often an option. We get kids who are brought by mothers, grandparents, and siblings, fathers are rare. We teach in a fishbowl there is no place on the floor that cannot be seen by the parents and staff and parents are welcome and encouraged to stay.
