Red Dot Sights Are The Way To Go

Try to explain to a new customer how to use iron sights — whether on a handgun or a rifle, it can be a little difficult. And then when you tell them they should focus on the front sight and let the rear sight and the target go to a blur, they often look at you like you’re crazy.

They are trying to hit the target, and to do that they need to see it, right? Many shooters struggle with the problem of front sight focus. After all, the natural tendency is to focus on the object you want to shoot. And that’s especially so if the target is a charging dangerous animal that wants to eat you for dinner or a two-legged assailant who wants to kill you.

Telescopic sights have their drawbacks, too. These become obvious when one tries to shoot a moving target, particularly if the target is at close range where keeping it in the field of view is not easy. And if the target is far away, even if it isn’t moving, it can be hard to find in the scope.

The red-dot solution benefits shooters both new and experienced, especially those who have difficulty focusing on objects that are close or those who have trouble changing focus quickly. The solution also makes it a lot easier to train a new shooter — they just learn faster, because getting a sight picture is a lot less complicated. Special operations forces solved the problem years ago and use red-dot sights on a regular basis.

When All Have the Bomb (Surviving in a Nuke Proliferated Obama World)

Let there be a nuclear explosion in downtown New York, and the city starts to wither away. Without a functioning Manhattan, jobs will evaporate, and the survivors will drift away. A similar terrorist bombing in Los Angeles would be more a temporary inconvenience than a fatal wound. Why? Well, what locals call LA is big. Overlay a map of LA on a map of Connecticut, and the two turn out to be about the same size. It is important to realize that LA’s economic activity is mostly in its suburbs. It is a redundantly connected constellation of much smaller cities. A fission bomb explosion will disrupt little of what actually goes on in LA.

Now that Obama has seemingly given Iran permission to produce nuclear weapons, virtually everyone will someday have them. With such weapons in the hands of renegades, America will have to change. And the change will not just be political and cultural. The physical geography of our nation will also change in a fundamental way.

Dispersal: The most important key to survival in the forthcoming nuclear age is to not present attractive targets in the first place. This means dispersal.

Lessons Learned from a Home Invasion Attempt

Published on: July 14, 2015

Home-Invasion-300x177I was working day shift police patrol when a call went out at about 9:00 a.m. I was dispatched to a very large house in a nice neighborhood. The dispatcher said that the resident had called to report suspicious activity. The resident said that she had heard someone banging on her back door. She was worried because no one ever came to the back side of her house. She thought that the knock was a burglary attempt and she had locked herself in an upstairs bedroom until we could arrive.

This isn’t an exceptionally unusual call. I work in a very wealthy city that has a high percentage of elderly residents. Many of these residents live alone, are disabled, or suffering from dementia. They tend to call us fairly often whenever they think something strange is happening.

As I drove to the call, the dispatcher gave me an update. They had received an additional call from the resident’s alarm company stating that a lower level door had been opened. The dispatcher was still on the phone with the resident. She hadn’t moved from her upstairs bedroom and no one else should have been in the house.

I’m all for the Second Amendment because I’m a conservative and that’s a thing for them. I actually do think it’s weird that our government has a bunch of emotionally stressed and extremely well-equipped gun nuts parked all over the world.

Realistically, though, the chances of one of them going rogue in a way that affects me are low, so when my husband came out to me as an emotionally stable gun nut, I wasn’t thrilled. The guy loves guns: he has a lot of them, he’s good at shooting them, and he wanted me to be a part of it. Having my Second Amendment adherence bluff called has been a rough, but worthwhile, experience. Here are some tips for anyone who has internalized anti-gun culture enough to need some help getting over it.

America’s Fall – It Can’t Happen To Us?

Published on: July 10, 2015

Today, many Americans see the EXPONENTIAL problems facing our nation (fiscally, socially and our national venerability) and yet they truly DO NOT believe that we – as a nation – can fall or suffer terror attacks. These possess a delusional mindset that illogically believes that “It can NEVER happen to us! We are unsinkable!” We today are more vulnerable than we ever have been as a nation to terrorism, financial collapse and the outbreak of lawlessness. Our national and foreign policies have been replaced with political correctness, moral relativism, stupidity and gullibility.

Read this article. In last week’s Tunisian attack, the first cop who arrived refused to go after the killer because he (the cop) wasn’t wearing body armor (which likely wouldn’t have stopped an AK round anyway). A man who worked at the hotel beach activities stand took the cop’s gun and went after the killer. Unfortunately, the hotel worker couldn’t use the weapon. He had difficulty with the safety, got one shot off (that missed) and then the gun jammed.

We’ve seen the same thing in most of the large active killer incidents outside the USA…cops unwilling or unable to do their jobs. It was a huge problem in the Mumbai attacks and the attack on the mall in Kenya.

If you are traveling internationally in third world countries you really shouldn’t expect that the local police are competent. Know how to use any weapon you may encounter. If a tourist or hotel worker could have correctly operated the cop’s gun in the Tunisian event, the killing would have been stopped 20 minutes earlier.

What to Do During a Break In

Do a Google search for “what to do during a break in” and you’ll find lots of confusing and contradictory advice. In this article we’ll discuss what to do (and not to do) during a break-in if you (or you and a spouse) are the only ones at home during a break in.

In addition to all the articles about “what to do on Spring Break” and “what to do during a break up” you’ll find articles and advice from a variety of sources. Lots of that advice is contradictory because it comes from different viewpoints and agendas. Some may suggest you stand your ground while others recommend you run for the hills. One even says you “might” want to stay if you have children in your home. Several seem to think you can reason with the invaders or that you will only make things worse by provoking them, as you will see below.

Because the strategies for dealing with a home invasion are different based on your family situation and living arrangements, one article was simply not enough. Here, then, is part one of two on what to do during a break in.

Nearly eighteen years ago, Mike and Susan Gonzalez had a life changing experience.

“August will be 18 years and I still live with it everyday,” said Susan.

Her home now has burglar bars and there are no trespassing signs posted on her North Jacksonville property.

It was around 12:40 a.m. when she heard a rustling sound at the front door. Gonzalez said she left the couch to unlock the front door for her son when someone kicked the door in.

Charleston shooting prompts gun-rights supporters to call for more concealed-carry at churches

He was a young gunman bent on shooting as many worshippers as possible, but Matthew J. Murray never got as far as Dylann Roof, the suspect in Wednesday’s South Carolina church massacre.

Murray had already shot and killed two people in the parking lot when he burst into the New Life Church in Colorado Springs. Before he could pull the trigger again, however, the 24-year-old shooter was gunned down by Jeanne Assam, a volunteer security guard with a concealed-carry permit.

That was eight years ago, but even though Ms. Assam was credited for saving as many as 100 lives that day, a dozen states continue to restrict the carrying of concealed firearms in churches — including South Carolina.

The Emanuel AME Church shooting that left nine dead Wednesday prompted not just a surge in calls from the left for tighter gun-control laws, but also pleas from the right for churches to protect themselves by allowing their parishioners to pack heat.
