I got a chance to hook up again this week with my brother from Utah. Devin of TopGunReview.com. If you are a new shooter, check out his reviews of guns and gear.

Working on a ebook for the new media expo and for any podcasters and bloggers that feel stuck in their production of good content. Its not rocket science but some stuff that might help keep you motivated. I am still working on it but it made me realize how much I don’t and didn’t know about internet marketing. I have only succeeded because I am blessed to call you a friend. I am tenacious, relentless and don’t know any better. That is going in the book. It is going to be a tool to help podcasters and bloggers get motivated.

I owe you. I have been podcasting since 2007 and blogging since 2000 without a clue. I didn’t know much about keywords, google ad words, social media anything and yet you found me. You even like me. I didn’t make it easy. I got multiple facebook pages, blogs and and mini social media site on ning. You don’t know where to look for me. Are you the urbanshooter or the blackmanwithagun.

Preparing for SHOT show. http://www.shotshow.org

I know a lot of us are planning to go to SHOT show in January. I want to give you a few tips and the benefits of some hard knocks. The next SHOT show is January 14-17, 2014. Its at the Sands Convention center and is the biggest collection of businesses and people in this industry you will ever see. The bad part is that its not open to everyone. There is a pecking order. If you don’t fit in that order, you will soon see. Big money companies are easy to find. If you are new to the industry, you will hard to find. Either way you have to register. If you are a podcaster, blogger, make sure you register. There is a media day at the range that is big fun but not everyone is invited. This will be the ninth annual SHOT Show Media Day at the Range will take place on Monday, January 13, 2014 at 2500 Utah St, Boulder City, Nevada, approximately 25 miles south of Las Vegas. Media Day will continue to be split into two sessions; the first will be open to 700 invited media members, the afternoon session will be open to 700 at-large registered media. With over 140 exhibiting manufactures in 2013 Media Day continues to be the largest hands-on media event in the hunting and shooting industry.

There are a lot of seasoned journalist there that had to fight their way to that spot and they are not in love with bloggers that they say, threw up a blog and calls themselves media. If you got the second shift, it was a little raw. Even though its in Nevada, it was butt cold out in the desert in January. I want to give you some tips for dressing out there.

You don’t want clothes that are too heavy or too light. It rained and snowed once when I was there.

Dress in layers.

Do you know how your body loses heat? Let me share that.

United We Stand #304 Urban Shooter Podcast

join or Die

January 17, 2013 | Posted in Urban Shooter Podcast | By

United We Stand, Divided We Fall.

 

  • Kudos to the patriots that participated in contacting their politicians.  You made a difference.
  • SHOT Show shout outs
  • Colion Noir
  • Joseph H. Davis, Esq
  • Gun Appreciation Day and Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Many gun owners are planning to visit their state capitols on January 19th, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is a United States federal holiday marking the birthday of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It is observed on the third Monday of January each year, which is around the time of King’s birthday, January 15. The floating holiday.  The Virginia Citizens Defense League has been using that day for years to lobby in Richmond, and show their support of the US Constitution.

The use of the only day honoring an African American will not be without controversy.  I have been asked already if I had a problem with it out of respect and courtesy by a listener of this show and I said no.

It is not a Holy day.  We as a nation don’t honor God so why should I get twisted if we use a federal holiday to show unity for our Constitutional rights?

 

Look at it from another perspective though before you dismiss those that disagree.

 

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was an awesome leader that took Ghandi’s example and brought it home  to effectively change America using nonviolent activism in the civil rights movement.  He successfully protested racial discrimination in federal and state law.

To give this honor to a person that had never held public office, and that was a black citizen was contrary to longstanding tradition.  President Reagan opposed it saying it was too costly to make another federal holiday.

NC Republican Senators Jesse Helms and John Porter East led opposition to the bill and questioned whether King was important enough to receive such an honor.

AZ Republican Sen. John McCain voted against the creation of the holiday to honor King, and later defended Arizona Republican Governor Evan Mecham’s rescission of the state holiday in honor of King created by his Democratic predecessor.

In 1989, the Arizona state legislature replaced Columbus Day with the King holiday, outraging Italian-Americans. In 1990 the National Football League threatened to move the Super Bowl that was planned to be in Arizona in 1993. This same year, Arizonans were given the opportunity to vote to observe an MLK holiday. McCain successfully appealed to former President Ronald Reagan to support the holiday. The state legislature passed a measure to keep both Columbus Day and Martin Luther King Day, but it was too late as 76% of voters rejected the King holiday. Consequently, the state “lost $500 million and the Super Bowl” which moved to Pasadena, California.[

In 1991, the New Hampshire legislature created “Civil Rights Day” and abolished “Fast Day. In 1999, “Civil Rights Day” was officially changed to “Martin Luther King Day,” becoming the last state to have a holiday named after Dr. King.

On May 2, 2000, South Carolina governor Jim Hodges signed a bill to make Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday an official state holiday. South Carolina was the last state to recognize the day as a paid holiday for all state employees. Prior to this, employees could choose between celebrating Martin Luther King Day or one of three Confederate holidays.

In Utah, the holiday was known as “Human Rights Day” until 2000,[ when the Utah State Legislature voted to change the name of the holiday from Human Rights Day to Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. In that same year Governor Michael O. Leavitt signed the bill officially naming the holiday “Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

In Virginia, it was known as Lee-Jackson-King Day, combining King’s birthday with the established Lee-Jackson Day.   The incongruous nature of the holiday, which simultaneously celebrated the lives of Confederate Army generals and a civil rights icon, did not escape the notice of Virginia lawmakers. In 2000, Lee-Jackson Day was moved to the Friday before Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, establishing Martin Luther King, Jr. Day as a holiday in its own right.

Mississippi still shares this celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday on the third Monday of January and Robert E. Lee’s birthday January 19.

In Arizona, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is known as “Martin Luther King, Jr./Civil Rights Day”; while in New Hampshire, its official name is “Martin Luther King, Jr. Civil Rights Day”

So we have a past, and people that feel slighted, and many of the names I mentioned are still around and not loved by people that love Dr. King.

But what is freedom if not the choice , the absence of necessity, coercion, or constraint in choice or action?  Is it not liberation from slavery or restraint or from the power of another ?  Don’t we have the independence to honor what we want?

Well we do.  Gun Appreciation Day is easy to tweet and remember but its not about guns its about freedom.  I don’t appreciate a mechanical device, I appreciate the country that allows me to exercise the freedom to have it.  The country that understands that freedom isn’t free.  It is not a gift from the Government.  It is not for some and not for others.

This day, whatever you call it, guns across America, gun appreciation day, gun lobby day, is the acknowledgment that it is 100% American to be a gun owner.  And we acknowledge our responsibility to our well-being, and those around us. We acknowledge that laws are not followed by criminals, and valiantly stand opposed to restrictions on the tools we legally use for defense.

Aesop may have used it first and it is also written in the Christian’s Holy Bible, in the New Testament,

“A house divided against itself cannot stand” but I believe in it.”  Mark 3:25,

“Let us trust God, and our better judgment to set us right hereafter. United we stand, divided we fall. Let us not split into factions which must destroy that union upon which our existence hangs.”   Patrick Henry

 

 

News:

Washington Post.

“What they do well is they really get people out,” said Illinois state Rep. Elaine Nekritz (D), who heads the House committee that was to consider the assault-weapons ban until gun owners, spurred by the local NRA affiliate, overwhelmed legislators with calls and e-mails. “That’s democracy. I can’t fault them for it. I have to applaud them for it.”

Nekritz, who supports the proposed ban, said her office received hundreds of phone messages and about 1,000 e-mails in the two days before she pulled the bill. “I didn’t see anything that was supportive,” she said.

Caracal at the SHOT Show

caracal 9mm

January 15, 2013 | Posted in Firearms | By

On a cold and windy day in Nevada, I got a chance to meet J.J. Racaza at the NSSF’s Media Day at the Range.  JJ is a spokesman for CARACAL, a very accurate pistol, that has been around about five years, originating in the UAE.  It is now imported here and worthy of a test fire.  If you can, I recommend you buy one.

I didn’t see JJ on the series Top Shot but think he is a good guy.  The pistol reminded me of the HK P7 and a Glock mixed together.  I think it is a great pistol.   Special thanks to the NSSF and Caracal for making this happen.

303 Urban Shooter Podcast

January 10, 2013 | Posted in Urban Shooter Podcast | By

Haters Gonna Hate.

I am very skeptic now when I hear someone say anything about guns that doesn’t have one.  I immediately question their motives.  Are they a politician, celebrity /wealthy person, or all three?  Is their only solution to disarm the good guys? 

Fear of loss is ramping up sales at all gun shops, and shows.  Folks are buying firearms related merchandise like stock.  Ammunition is like currency.  People that cannot legally own a firearm are finding out the realities of the current gun laws.  They can’t play with the grown folks.  There are so many laws in affect that unless you have all your “I’s” dotted and your “T’s” crossed, you are not going to be able to buy anything that goes bang.  That is what the law is for.  We already have it.  I have seen it enforcement all the time. 

The lyrics of Jill Scott’s Hate On Me song, resonated with me this week so I asked Bones to try it on the theme.  He is not Ms. Scott but the words were true.

Malcolm from Nova Armament Gun store in Herndon,VA shares what’s going on there. 

Plans for a new television show. 

Thank you for making this podcast in the top 3 in the ITunes category I am in.  I am humbled by it.  And now Bones Hooks has got the big head over it too.  You should see him strutted around here like he is Mick Jagger.

  • Crazy people and non -Gun Owners commentary,
  • Barbara Baird of WomensOutdoorNews.com shares what she is going to do at the SHOT show next week. Jan 14-18, 2013.
  • Kenn explains SHOT Show and his plans for 2013, gunrightsmagazine.com, freedomsnetwork.org, blackmanwithagun.com, American gun owners show
  • Fighting without fighting, the Ropa-Dope.  Sun Tsu, boxers Muhammad Ali, Manny Pacquio, Alex Jones, Activism in 2013
  • Shooting with the Advantage Arms conversion kit, .22.  AMMO shortage
  • Nova Armament, conversation with Malcolm about the state of sales

 

I got introduced to a gifted young brother named Mathias Boyar, this week.  He has a cool YouTube page that showcases his talents in music.  I took the following beat he sent and mixed it with the 23 Psalm.  I liked it so much, I thought I’d share it with you.
