We all know what the 4 Rules say. Rule 3: Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target. In the photo above, my sights aren’t on the target in a way that I could verify. But my muzzle is in a safe direction, and I’m sure of what’s beyond my target. I’m willing to subject myself to the Internet Safety Nazis in order to have a conversation: when is it too early to get on the trigger?

The Guns of D-Day

guns of d-day

Today is the 70th Anniversary of D-Day. The world we live in today is free because the men of that time put their lives on the line to keep is free from evil. I cannot think of words to properly due justice to what they accomplished. Each time I read about another veteran of World War 2 passing, I know that we are diminished as a country. But today is not a day for sadness, but rather a day for celebration, because through their sacrifice and heroism we live free of foreign tyranny today.
