Hunting Guy or Tactical Guy.

A big chunk of the shooting community seems to be in two camps. Hunting Guys and Tactical Guys and I’ve heard arguments between the two about who is better and all that nonsense. I know guys on both sides of that line in the sand.

One side buys long brown guns and fire rounds never used by the Military. They will also use pointy sticks and strings to bring down big game. These guys can load their guns backwards and then kill an Elk with it. They camo up and blend in with their surroundings like the Predator and will mimic their prey and get within spitting distance.

The other guys buy guns that are Black or Coyote Tan and they fire rounds by the bucket loads and practice shooting their Semi’s with speed and accuracy that is unprecedented in Military History. They will rip into a target like a hurricane, dominate a situation, and counter any threat they come across. Both sides have strong points. Continue reading Hunting Guy or Tactical Guy.

Sheep for the slaughter

You’ve all heard the news about the 2 soldiers that were killed in Germany.  I’m not going to go into all that… save for one small little detail.   Our soldiers were unarmed.

Once again, “Policy” has killed our troops.  Our Policy is that all US Forces are unarmed almost all the time.  This Policy allowed for more deaths at Ft. Hood as well.

Crusader Sterlings

I am very pleased with how well these Crusader Sterlings have done.    This project is going to be a lot of fun and I’ll be working on these things personally, along side GunDoctor.  I am really looking forward to getting my hands dirty and taking a photo amongst a bunch of SMG’s.

I might have to change the name of the Blog to The Happy Ogre.

Tentative Date: Crusader Training 3-26

The only date in March that I have for Training is the 26th.  The course is Defensive Pistol, as that’s what most folks are asking for right off the bat.

However that time last year, and the year before, the Range was a Mud Bog.  The ground, isn’t frozen anymore and the soil is completely saturated.  4×4’s get stuck, in fact, last year… several did.  So I’m looking for an alternative venue.  There are a couple possibilities, one on the Wasatch Front.   I’ll post as things develop.

Another thing I want to do is a Crusader Teaghlach Training Day:  A training day for Family Members and Close Friends of Crusader Weaponry…  Wives, In Laws, Parents, and even Children.  Grilling and Gunning at the Range.  I’m thinking early summer.   Cost of the course will be Meat and Beverages.
