That cool 2000 dollar rifle you bought. Useless. That pistol you bought that was all the rage on the internet… Useless. What you bought is a very expensive Safe Ornament.
No matter how good that gun is… It’s as useless as tits on a warthog. Unless you have spare magazines for it. Ammunition for it. A ready kit to carry loaded magazines. And unless you have trained with it.
There’s a reason that the Army and the Marines drill their people on Disassembly and Reassembly. Do you know how to strip that new weapon down, and reassemble it? Can you do that in the dark? Do you even know your weapon?
I know a couple guys that have bought very nice, high quality arms… and they’ve done nothing with other than to remove it from the box and put it in the safe…. and they brag about having it. Dude, you don’t have anything. You don’t even own a Cartridge for it… you have nothing.
Take that gun out… Get to know it. Train with it.
ADDENDUM: I’m not talking about Collector guns, Collectors, or guns bought as investments. So Investors and Collectors – don’t get your panties in a twist, this wasn’t about you.
