This here Internet thing is not about freedom for any of us; the Internet is about amassing unimaginable wealth for corporate giants.

The year 2017 has been and will continue to be extraordinarily CHALLENGING and BUSY for me. Blog entries will likely be even more infrequent than usual until all projects and issues are completed or resolved.

Thanks for stopping by. I really do appreciated it.

The first rule of gunfighting



Most personal-protection aficionados have heard the Mark Moritz truism that the foremost rule of gunfighting is to “have a gun.” Indeed, participating in a gunfight without possessing a gun could be a painfully decisive inconvenience even for a master of unarmed martial arts. Many students of armed self-defense have also heard the many subsequent rules of gunfighting, those rules pertaining to choice of guns, calibers, and tactics, often paraphrased without citation.

the wisdom of others; I don’t have the expertise to offer an opinion.
