    I did a little training with Todd Jarrett. I'm not in competition and I really don't have time to get to the range that much, but I have learned the difference between having gear and knowing how to use it.

At 67 the hands aren't quite as steady and the eye sight not quite as sharp but I can still hit the target consistently.

    I've never had occasion to stage my weapon so far. I like that way. That could change I hope not but it could. I hate violence.

    I started walking away from trouble and fights right after I was discharged from the Marine Corps. Sick and tired of fighting. The dam thing is sometimes you can't walk away. It's those times I worry about the most. Murder of helpless people is one of the things I won't walk away from. But you have to make awfully sure what you're seeing is what you think it is or you could easily end up in jail for a long long time.
    Yeah, that's the risk. Even cops have the same problem. I can only hope I'm in the right fight on the right side. A lot of people don't understand that when the brawl breaks out at the bar a lot of guys just swing at the face in front of them. Even for a Marine, it's not always straight up.

    Let's just say that I'd rather be ready for a fight than be in one.

    ^^^ As I think about it, I don't appreciate this administration blurring the lines for us.

    Yeah I've seen some bar fights the best thing to do is get out of the way without spilling your drink . Alcohol gives some people the idea they're King Kong. Not tougher than a Q Stick upside the head though.

    Yep I've seen flying bar stools too. Lookout "Incoming"... Boy o boy I picked some high society dumps. Everything from bars frequented by bikers to bars frequented by rats. Never found one I didn't like . The old me.

    When I walked into a strange bar in the "old days" I would ask two important questions. "Do you serve alcohol?" and "Do you accept American currency?"
