THE FOUR RULES

1. ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED.

2. NEVER POINT YOUR MUZZLE AT SOMETHING YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO DESTROY.

3. KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER UNTIL YOUR SIGHTS ARE ON THE TARGET AND YOU ARE READY TO SHOOT.

4. KNOW YOUR TARGET AND WHAT'S BEYOND.

Winston Churchill said
"A GENTLEMAN, SELDOM, IF EVER, NEEDS A GUN.
BUT WHEN HE DOES, HE NEEDS IT VERY BADLY!"
Si Vis Paceum Para Bellum

Sam Adams, more than beer

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude than the animating contest of freedom, — go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen”
Samuel Adams

Lincoln on power

"We must prevent these things being done, by either congresses or courts — The people — the people — are the rightful masters of both Congresses, and courts — not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert it —" Abraham Lincoln

Why women should shoot

From http://clickamericana.com/.

Annie Oakley gives from reasons and hints for practice


Annie Oakley portrait


There are number of reasons, in my opinion, why every lady who has the time, the means, and the opportunity should learn the use of firearms.
Until recent years, woman has been debarred to a great extent from participating in many sports, pastimes, and recreations which in times past were looked upon as fit only for the opposite sex.
Now, however, that her right to enjoy some of these healthy diversions, especially those of an out-of-door nature, are fully recognized, I believe that such diversions should be taken advantage of to the fullest extent.
I do not wish to be understood to mean by this that woman should sacrifice home and family duties merely for outside pleasure, but that, feeling how true it is that health goes a great way toward making home life happy, no opportunity should be lost by my sex of indulging in outdoor sports, pastimes, and recreations, which are at once healthy in their tone and results and womanly in their character.
Under this category the use of firearms must come, for does not this practice, as a rule, bring one out into the open, where not only the fresh air may be breathed, but oftentimes the beauties of nature be also enjoyed.
If only as a means of benefiting the health the use of firearms by woman is, therefore, well worth learning. Then again, shooting is not only a healthy recreation, but a pleasurable one, and one in which both body and mind are brought into activity — the body in wielding or handling the weapon, and the mind in exercising judgment when aiming and firing at an object.
Read it all. One of her best arguments for women learning to shoot is for self defense. It's hard to believe that this was written in 1894.

I found this site while I was looking for a old recipe. There are vintage car ads, vintage news and magazine articles, the list goes on. It's easy to get lost down this rabbit hole. I took a good long look at the vintage car ads. That's a nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon. I like the old cars, back when they were made out of steel instead of tin and plastic. I even found a ad for the first car I owned, a 1946 Willys MB jeep.

Go and enjoy, there's a ton of great memories.

And I did find the recipe I was looking for.
