- Every rifle shooter needs a light, a sight and sling
- single point or two point sling
Also, I am blessed to reconnect with tactical Tim Schmidt the publisher and visionary of US Concealed Carry Magazine.
I have some news to share and plan to talk about violence. We kind of skirt around the issue some times. Well, we don’t but the public does. We are the ones trying to speak truth to power. I know. And thank you for all you put up with.
We have my Tale of Two Cities.
And some music from Bones Hooks who is feeling his oats right about now. I don’t know about that boy.

Daniel Shaw, Gunfighter Cast has now started his own training academy. And he isn’t alone. Tommy from the GunDudes Podcast has one too. Is that cool or what? They are doing a class together in August.
There is a new move to create mini podcast networks. There is one called ConcealNCarry.net that looks pretty good. You’ll find the shows of the Firearms Radio Network there. And few other familiar faces.
My book, Black Man With A Gun: Reloaded, looks like it will be out around the first week of October.
I will be speaking in Las Vegas at the New Media Expo, Jan 4-6, 2014 at the RIO hotel.
Don’t forget to check out theHolstersite.com, I got a really professional leather holster made for my glock 34 with tac lite. Real leather, made by hand from my friend and brother the Evyl Robot out of Oklahoma.
I was thinking about the group of mayors that have banded together for publicity called Mayors Against Illegal Guns. It’s one of those misnomers made by wordsmiths that is impotent, and unnecessary. All guns used by criminals are illegal. All firearms altered or sold on the black and gray markets is already a felony. They didn’t invent the word “straw purchase” it has always been a crime to buy a firearm for someone else that may not be legally able to. This is not the only term like this.
There is no such thing as gun violence. Analytically, the term “gun violence” really means guns are perpetrating violence on other guns. It is just violence. You have to admit the term sounds good though. It is a successfully used emotional hot button for anyone who is or has been a victim. And I could go on for a long stretch about victimology. I know a group of people that revel in it.
― Booker T. Washington said and it is still true:
“There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”
I know violence. It has been described as something that can happen as quick as a bolt of lightning touching down during a thunderstorm. I grew up and survived more than one type of violence. Let me tell you a story…
