via Skills Over Gear, or, Doing More With Less
Key thought: “But skill, specifically mastery of basic skills, can never be supplanted by a product. And in turn, no product will make you better if the fundamentals ain’t there first. Those fundamentals, with some very basic supporting gear, lay the foundation for you to be effective whether it’s combat weapon[s]craft, movements in potentially hostile environments, or tactical communications. The basics of anything never, ever change. And you might be surprised at what can be done with just a mastery of what’s simple.”
Late winter is always a good time to check the declination adjustment on your compass, if you have a declination adjustable model. It’s also good to check it against what might be on your AO maps.
As most who know me know, I’m not a fan of the NRA and haven’t been for a long, long time, ever since I learned they gave tacit approval to the ’94 AWB that Bill Ruger helped craft.

“I had to have a security detail to get out,” she said of the Sunland, Fla. event. “I wouldn’t be able to exit that if I didn’t have a private security detail. There were people rushing the stage and screaming burn her. And I came there to talk solutions and I still am going to continue that conversation on solutions as the NRA has been doing since before I was alive.”

As in burn at the stake or in a fire, ‘burn her’??
Civility is failing fast. Sage advice I’ve read somewhere before: “Be polite, be professional, and have a plan to kill everyone you meet.” Additionally, carry. 24/7. You might be glad you did.

That what I, and others, have said since the election of Mr. Trump is correct: “We have a repreive. 24 months at most. The midterms are it.”
This article from Breitbart underscores the shift….
An aside, I’ve been super busy, so sorry about the lack of posts. Best to all those who are recovering in both hurricane hit areas.
“…The real damage is done by those millions who want to ‘survive.’ The honest men who just want to be left in peace. Those who don’t want their little lives disturbed by anything bigger than themselves. Those with no sides and no causes. Those who won’t take measure of their own strength, for fear of […]
