There is a lot going on at the Lincoln Izaak Walton League this fall... new safety baffles going in on the 100 yard range, 4 acre fishing pond for kids, still quite a bit of shooting left to do this year! If you've never been out and are interested in joining, give me a call and I'd be happy to give you the nickel tour!
Do you have an anti in your life that tells you we should have gun laws like they do in England? Refer them to this article. Fewer guns = more crime. It will take a moment to load as Google Translate has to change it to English. If you don't fell like reading, skip straight to the graphs at the bottom. I'll cut to the chase... once England outlawed private gun ownership, crime rates skyrocketed. If the media actually reported the real numbers, the rest of America would know what we know... more guns = less crime because not only criminals and cops have guns.
If you are ever in a self-defense situation where you've drawn your handgun, or been forced to fire in defense of your life or a third person's life... call 911 immediately! I refer people to Massad Ayoob's blog in every one of my classes. In the following article he talks about handling the 911 call after you've defended yourself, either by drawing your handgun to disuade a bad guy, or by using lethal force in a worst-case-scenario. This one is worth the read!
As a husband and father, I'm interested in anything that helps educate me in the area of self-defense, and I'm always watching for products that help me be prepared.
