Not Accepting Guest Post

If you haven’t posted on this site before and claim to be the marketing manager, writer, blogger or SEO consultant in charge of finding websites that have been around awhile and can give you great link juice, I am not interested. I am also not interested in sponsoring links from existing post. I am not interested in your offers to pay me nor links to casinos, gambling sites, porn, dating or anti-freedom organizations.

This url has been around since 1999. It has had its ups and downs. I lost most of the content a few years ago when I was unsure if I was going to keep it. I’ve lost many URLs like that. Domains that are being held hostage by foreign brand squatters.

I will accept guest post from my friends, known members of the Second Amendment community, and folks that have interacted with me on the podcast or this blog. Even if you are pro-2A and I don’t know you, NO.

If I were to publish your post the main focus of the article should be to inform or inspire my audience. I maintain the right to lightly edit your article (mostly for spelling, grammar, and formatting) and to choose a post title that I feel best fits my blog and audience. And I maintain the right to reject submissions or to request that you revise & resubmit to better tailor the article to my audience.

To all the rest,

Get Off My Lawn.

Is She The One?

Is She The One?

Probably not.  I say that up front because we don’t make the best decisions on relationships early.  You need experience to be a good judge of what a good relationship is or is not.  You must be mature enough to know what you want.  You have to unfortunately, guess more often than not.  Her having a “big butt and a smile” is not enough.  A good wife is a partner for life.  A good partner is a friend. A friend with benefits that you want to marry don’t make you not want to come home or duck them for peace of mind. A friend with benefits that you want to marry does not give you static.
A friend that you want to marry is not a security risk.  She is not likely to land you in jail.  She is not likely to surprise you with a baby.  She is not going to get you into a fight.
A friend you want to marry likes the same stuff you do.  Or if she doesn’t wants to learn. 
Opposites don’t really attract.  There is something about you two that you like.  It could be as simple as you both work at the same place.  You both drive on the same road.  You both shared a glance in a crowded elevator.  You shared a weekend of great sex.  But everything else is whack.  Don’t do bad math either.  Don’t settle for some good and some bad.  What people show you early in your relationship will still be around five years later or be worse. 
I am sharing this with you as someone who has survived almost everything you can go through as a boyfriend, fiancé and husband.
Marriage is good when you can share your life with someone with the same goals, dreams and values as you. Living together can expose some of the things we would normally hide from each other but even then it can cause more problems than you need.  People have problems. None of us is wrapped in perfect boxes.  Unfortunately, when we rush relationships, rush growth, we suffer.  Everyone grows differently.  Education and age are not great factors in telling maturity.  I have seen and heard men with PhD’s deliver love letters to love interest that bordered on juvenile.  In the relationship game, they were in elementary school even though they could quote theorems on quantum physics.  It is even tougher today for those that have embraced social media and don’t have good conversation skills. 
It is not enough to say that a person you love, knows me.  A good marriage thrives on the open exchange of emotion, desires, and beliefs. Communication is one of the most important aspects life. When you can communicate, you can do almost anything. Through communication, you’d learn if your partner was honest, respectful, positive and open.  Through good channels they would indeed know where you were coming from even if you weren’t on the same level.  If she is the one, then the both of you would be able to put up with, deal, handle, and tackle anything the world threw at you, together. And it will.
You don’t want to fight at work, and at home.  If you do, she ain’t the one.

Do You Remember Your First Time?

Do You Remember Your First Time?

 

I remember mine. I just turned 21. I woke up that day giddy and excited. I walked nervously, eagerly to my future love and after weeks of scoping and eying my beauty down I knew I found the one. She was petite. She was older than me but with age comes wisdom. She didn’t show any signs of aging. I approached her and spent minutes investing my time in getting my first impressions of her. I knew we were a match.

She is a the Smith & Wesson® Model 442 Airweight® revolver.

The streamline, lightweight, no-snag design of the Smith & Wesson® Model 442 Airweight® makes it an ideal concealed carry double-action revolver. The internal hammer of the 442 eliminates the risk of the hammer getting snagged on clothing, holsters, or purses when drawing the weapon in a self-defense situation. The low profile, ramp front sight and the fixed notch rear sight also aid in snag-free presentation of the weapon. The 442 is double-action only, making it an extremely fast personal-defensive handgun to deploy in stressful situations, as there is nothing to remember to do except point and pull the trigger. The lockwork of the 442 is completely enclosed to keep dirt and pocket lint from interfering with the gun’s action. The synthetic grips and inherently ergonomic design afford natural pointability. The Model 442 is built on Smith & Wesson’s famous J-Frame, it has a 5-shot cylinder rated for +P .38 Special ammunition. The barrel and cylinder are constructed from carbon steel, and the mainframe is made of lightweight aluminum alloy. All the exterior metal parts are finished with a matte black coating that resists corrosion caused by humidity and perspiration when the revolver is carried close to the body. The Smith & Wesson 442 Airweight Double-Action Revolver carries easily, deploys rapidly, and has enough firepower to handle any self-defense scenario. Made in USA.

Welcome. My name is Ray Alan Price and I want to invite all new and existing gun owners to this blog where I will provide helpful tips and safe handling advice for first time gun owners. I will also share my experiences in gun ownership. I have been safely shooting recreationally for over a decade. I have been on my high school’s rifle team where I learned the basics and fundamentals of shooting.

My father was a Desert Storm veteran and a military policeman. He taught me everything from taking apart firearms to the most important aspect of all —- safe gun handling. I have shot and carried a variety of handguns, makes and models. I am still a student as there are many things I still want to learn but I have a healthy insight for many first time owners and carriers because it wasn’t too long ago I was in your shoes. There are many different handguns on the market and for a novice it can be challenging and intimidating. What caliber to chose? Where to buy? What holster is best?

I not only have firearm’s knowledge but I have a Bachelor’s degree in political science, a Master’s degree in fraud and forensics, and I have been writing professionally.

I currently, am employed as a fraud investigator for a company in the city. My goal is to provide readers with knowledge and guidance.

There are plenty of fish in the sea but I will guide you on how to reel in your first catch.

 

Please welcome our newest contributor to the Black Man With A Gun Blog. A few weeks ago I asked on the podcast for help making this blog more than just my observations. Mr. Price joins to share his journey as a new gun owner.
