Great Evening

Attended the local Friends of the NRA Dinner last night.

The Mad Duck team did well, there were several guns to be won & our table took two of them!
So far just in Ohio they have raised 1.7 Million! Half of which has stay in Ohio to support shooting programs.

It is a great get together, & all shooters should try to attend at least one!

The History of the Middle Finger

Well,'s something I never knew before, and now that I know it, I feel compelled to send it on to my more intelligent friends in the hope that they, too, will feel edified. Isn't history more fun when you know something about it?

Before the Battle of Agincourt in 1415, the French, anticipating victory over the English, proposed to cut off the middle finger of all captured English soldiers. Without the middle finger it would be impossible to draw the renowned English longbow and therefore they would be incapable of fighting in the future. This famous English longbow was made of the native English Yew tree, and the act of drawing the longbow was known as "plucking the yew" (or "pluck yew").

Much to the bewilderment of the French, the English won a major upset and began mocking the French by waving their middle fingers at the defeated French, saying, See, we can still pluck yew! Since 'pluck yew' is rather difficult to say, the difficult consonant cluster at the beginning has gradually changed to a labiodentals fricative F', and thus the words often used in conjunction with the one-finger salute! It is also because of the pheasant feathers on the arrows used with the longbow that the symbolic gesture is known as "giving the bird."


And yew thought yew knew every plucking thing.
The Challenge

Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty or safety. Nor, are they likely to end up with either. — Benjamin Franklin

Shooting & Movement.

I really am a bit mixed on this, and I guess it would depend on the fight.
It would depend on how much you train & can keep your cool when the Brown stuff comes out of the fan.

In some fights you might well be better off getting on board & putting the attacker down as rapidly as possible.

In some fights shoot, move shoot again, it really does take a lot of practice to hit while moving. Most ranges don't allow it, & it can be hard to be good at it.
