guns save lives story you might have missed

If not for a concealed-carry handgun, this story would have made mainstream media headlines. Fortunately for some people outside a Tulsa, Oklahoma shopping mall 1) the female attacker was not a good shot and 2) the man carrying for defense of himself and those around him was. […]

your first home defense firearm

I published the information below a year ago, but am refreshing it now as many people wake up to the need for providing their own self-defense, family-defense and home-defense. There are many serious, fatal accidents looming when untrained, inexperienced people purchase firearms just cuz they suddenly recognize the utility and are able to purchase a gun. Single-shot guns are the simplest of all. The user places a round in the chamber when they are ready to shoot something, aim and shoot. The utility is limited and not a great choice for defense. Revolvers are also straightforward in that novices can readily see whether they are loaded or not, reducing some of the possibilities for negligent discharges, damage and death. […]

SOLD OUT

A week ago the media told its slaves to buy toilet paper. They obliged in droves, soaking up supplies at an incredible pace. They quickly moved on to paper diapers, feminine hygiene products and everything disposable made of paper. The rolling panic attack transitioned to bottled water, then transitioned to frozen food and fresh produce. Several weeks ahead of the next rush I see old codgers topping off their gasoline and diesel fuel supplies. They lived through numerous blizzards and other disasters teaching them what to have plenty of in their pantries and what supplies to maximize as the next one approaches. Now, in a sign of brightening awareness, Seattle has few handguns left to buy and their prices have […]

I have enough guns

That phrase is heresy for most Montanans. Its profane counterpart, “I have enough ammo” is just as bad. It is a good way to get shunned from polite company, trussed-up and shipped to San Francisco from others. But really, how many guns are you likely to deploy and how many rounds of ammo can you expend fighting off the zombie apocalypse before one of them takes you out? More importantly, if/when TS actually hits TF, or TEOTWAWKI if you will, gun fights are likely to take out a lot fewer than disease, suicide, starvation and other less dramatic breakdowns of the easy living we currently enjoy. If you are developing accommodations for your castle defense team, a couple month’s […]

Richmond: reality vs television

Quite a difference between what lamestream media and co-conspirator legislators made up and what 22,000 well-armed patriots actually did. Those of us expecting instigators and false flags are thrilled that did not happen. Those hoping to discredit self-defense activists were disappointed. The best lesson is shown in the video below. The media monopoly and criminal politicians agreed on wording designed to discredit the good guys and inflame the easily manipulated. Check this out: All the evil that are core values to the Democrats is thrown at those who would respect and defend life, liberty and property of all their fellows… the racism, tyranny, fascism and privilege they love is exactly what their opponents are accused of. But the reality is […]

Richmond did not blow up

Needless to say, I am thrilled that none of the horrid possibilities came to pass. Oath Keepers and others did a great job of informing their patriots about the possibilities and ramifications thereof. The shills and instigators did indeed show up, but every time one mouthed off trying to stir up trouble they were immediately confronted by nearby men that We know who you are. We know why you are here. We will not tolerate your trouble. Get out of here NOW! The instructions were in different words, often considered more forceful to modern ears. But the message was clear as was the end result demonstrating that An armed society is a polite society. The rabble rousers who have such […]

Virginia patriot warnings

My sources are full of warnings. I am sharing the headlines and links without comment. Matt Bracken turned my head around, but I am flexible and more open minded than average. Be aware that the machismo-motivated are heading for disaster. This is not the time nor place to win back our free country. – Ted – from the American Spectator Why Second Amendment Supporters Shouldn’t Bring Guns to Richmond Rally Anyone planning to attend Monday’s demonstrations will need to keep their guns at home and not play into the Democratic governor’s hands. Will police enforce Virginia’s anti-masking law at Monday’s rally? By Steve Grammatico Monday’s pro Second Amendment rally in Richmond will surely attract left provocateurs bent on inciting violence.

defense of self-defense tools

I do not like the word “meme”. Okay, I’m a crusty old man who does not rapidly adopt new words when there are so many great ones in our language that are falling into disuse. But there is no better word to describe the pictures, posters, images and messages I have assembled here. We are just a couple days from the Richmond, Virginia showdown. I am dreading this one. I think the OOOH-RAH patriots are walking into a trap. Any provocateur can dress as one of them and initiate insane violence that the puppet media would LOVE to blame on self-defense defenders. Here I share a collection of memes that you can copy and post wherever you find those who […]

modern gun fights – three examples

January 20, 2020 could turn out to be a modern gun battle. We would be wise to look at how they work. The first one I want discuss is the Aurora movie theater shootings. A kid stoned out on prescription psychotropics was manipulated into gearing up with a gun and a gas mask, opening the emergency exit to let in a “partner” who shot up the place, then out of his fog he got a sense that this was not right and shot the shooter. The shooter left his gas mask behind, left a trail of blood to his getaway car, then disappeared FOREVER. That man had his exit planned before his entrance. He had cover in high places. […]

Explaining LR-130, and why it’s important to Montana

Our state has a great champion of our gun rights in Gary Marbut. He continues to work harder and smarter to keep the pressure on Montana government to respect our natural rights to self-defense and all that means. In this e-mail he asks supporters to take note and take action. He also asks us to share the information. So here it is. – Ted –       Important update on pending November gun rights ballot issue from Gary Marbut of Montana Shooting Sports Assoc., LR-130, which will need the supporting votes of all who care about our 2nd Amendment rights in Montana.   From: Gary Marbut <[email protected]>   Subject: Explaining LR-130, and why it’s important to Montana   […]

Virginia – It’s A TRAP!

Those who see a multitude of downsides with almost no up-side chance are doing our best to warn off the patriots who are blinded by the HOO-RAH chanting that surrounds them. Virginians have the momentum. The county-by-county victories ARE GREAT. Do not walk into their Pig Trap, run off their Buffalo Jump or whatever other metaphor clues you in to what January 20th in Richmond is likely to be. I am sharing links, text, comments here from sharp people who helped me step back from the HOO-RAH din to see the looming disaster. Be the Indian not the Buffalo- Bracken RICHMOND: THE MOTHER OF ALL BUFFALO JUMPS   I share the complete text below, complete with test of your “Pig […]

Pushback on VA Governor’s Plan

to Hire 18-officer Team to Enforce Proposed Gun Ban What we want to see is this “tough guy” personally enforcing his forced disarmament plan. If not the very first door he came to, at least one of the first three would TERMINATE HIS PLAN face first. Sadly, the people will accept him sending unthinking, just-following-orders proxies to enforce his dictates. NOT FAIR to any of the participants. Today’s news says this psychopath-in-charge wants to spend $4.8 MILLION DOLLARS to hire 12 sacrificial targets in order for the Virginia elites to instigate war against the Virginians. That comes out to about ONE DOLLAR for each Virginian they want to kill in order to remain in charge of Virginia. The dozen desciples […]

.22 rifle practice

Far and away the most popular rifle caliber on Earth is the .22 Long Rifle (.22LR). Ammo.com has numerous listings for under 4-cents per round, and as they correctly describe, “Easily the most prolific and well known firearm cartridge in the world, the .22 Long Rifle (LR) is great for plinking and small-game hunting. The .22 LR is also considered the best choice for introducing new people to the sport of shooting, due to its lack of recoil and low noise.” I will add the intuitive: inexpensive, wonderful training tool from cost of gear through expense to operate. You can defend and take small game with these, but far more importantly, you can learn to shoot and practice your shooting […]

Virginia status report

Neither side shows signs of backing down. The bad guys are censoring lamestream media across their state, but The Internet is still The Real Free Press – a lesson we had better keep in mind for future reference. The Virginia map of self-defense respecting counties that have passed gun control sanctuary laws and in many cases formed official county militias. As you will read in the contributed article below, law enforcement and military past and present are joining their countrymen in standing fast against the fascists. An intelligent response would be to publish the names, addresses and other relevant contact information about those who want to murder the peace-loving people of Virginia. Is there something morally superior about waiting until […]
