I SEE you named yourself.
Courage is just fear that has said it's prayers.

The people trying to say the 2nd Amendment is outdated are probably the same folks that would say the same thing about the Bible.

Well if I needed 50 men, I would have to one of them?

That's the list for the PRS finally this weekend at Rifles Only. + or - a couple I may have missed.
I must say me getting into tactical shooting this year has gone very well and I have a greater appreciation for the talented shooters that this country produces, from Military, law enforcement and civilian avenues, Men and Women included.

This type of competition is well suited to create excellent marksmen, adding pressure, time limits, and both physical and mental challenges, certainly advances ones ability. I just wish we had more of it in the mid-west, seems to be well established across the southern half of the Country.

Open enrollment for 2013 will start shortly.

I would think that a mix would be the preferred option, some autos to lay suppressive fire (like there supposed to be) and a few snipers the actually take out the bad guys

l belive not as a semi auto incoreges the shooter to shoot more rapidly and makes him porne to many bad first shots on each taget. ( l know this from quail hunting..l concider my self a good shooter and hunter. l come home with 50-60 quail without missing any shots with my over and under and when l take a semi auto out hunting a tend to get careless. doesnt mater how much l try and concintrate.. the ancoreging felling of having alot of rounds to lay down range makes me become careles when puting leed on the target. ))

so would like to get your reviews on this. but make shure you know the situations are a medium ranged stand off from 500 _ 200 yards. ( so the enemy isnt comeing through the chimney or your windows :=))
sorry for any spelling mistakes.
In a firefight you want to put as much hurt on the enemy as possible as quickly as possible.

When I had a choice my favorite rifle on missions was an upgraded M-14.

As a rule though it is much more difficult to get extreme precision out of a Semi auto much less full than it is to get the same out of a bolt gun.

It's important to make every shot at a bad guy count but it's also important to lay down enough accurate fire rapidly so as to put their heads down.

It's very difficult to shoot back accurately when you know the bag guys have direct LOS to where your position is... .
Without the First and Second Amendments the rest of The Constitution is Meaningless.
