A Jacobin of this Age.

In light of the article by Michael Sean Winters at The National Catholic (or schismatic) Reporter: A Grim Fourth of July Arrives in the Age of Trump. Typical of the unhinged left, Winters tries to sound humane and aloof, right up to the very end. In a classic mask removal, Winters exposes his true belief, that he is in fact a Neo-Jacobin.

"Normally, when I get into a debate with a conservative friend and we are at an impasse, with no hope for resolution, I try to ease the tension with levity, and say, "Well, when the revolution comes, I will put in a good word for you and your family." To my friends in the Republican political and legal establishment who have not stood up to Trump: When the revolution comes, you are on your own, and I will be clamoring not for mercy but for a seat next to the guillotine, where I can do my knitting."
Your little attempt at "levity" was more of a self centering bullseye. It reminds me of the scene in Henry V, when the Dauphin of France attempts to insult Henry V with tennis balls.

Instead sir, you should, in all humility, be reminded of this.

155 Years Ago, If You Remember.

155 years ago today the Battle of Gettysburg started. While I will not argue the rights and wrongs of the American Civil War, I will say that some, if not many, of the views I once held about the war have changed over the last 30 years.

Some Very Interesting Classes from Tier 1 Citizen.

I have followed Abner Miranda for many years, since he wrote articles for various gun rags. More recently I follow his youtube channel and checkout his personal website from time to time. Today I was made aware of several new classes that he offering, all with the AR Pistol as the basis of the various classes.

The Kit Badger KBAT.

Kit Badger usually has something interesting to consider. Here is a target system, with links to why he did what did.

The beauty of this system is that you can print it out easily yourself on 8.5 x 11 normal paper.

More Thoughts On The AR GPP Concept.

5.56 AR GPP Concept. Gunstruction has not added the new SB
Tactical pistol braces yet. 

I have noticed an uptick on views of my initial post about the AR GPP (General Purpose Pistol) Concept that I have playing with for a while now. Especially with the explosion in pistol brace ideas out there, I am more and more in the camp of the utilitarian use of a 11.5-12.5 inch barrel AR pistol.

Something That I Wrote For Another Platform: Fixing The Focus.

Fixing The Focus. 
I enjoy shooting. I always have. I find it challenging, relaxing, and fun. I think the skills learned and acquired in shooting compares to Fixing the Focus in our own lives. I will not get too technical in my descriptions in order to keep this piece shorter than what it could be.
Generally, when shooting, you are shooting at a target, whether it is a static paper target, or some sort of reactive target. Hitting the target is your goal. Next, most firearms have a set of sights on them, most of the time a front and rear sight. When these sights are properly aligned with the target, you know that having the shot strike the target is highly probable. In our life, the target is the goal. The rear sight, which we look through first, is our priorities. Priorities sharpen our focus forward to the front sight, which are our plans. So, when our priorities, plans, and goals all line up, we know that we CAN reach the goal.
But there is more to it, more possibility. Stick with me here.
