Over the next few months I am going to be posting every Tuesday and Thursday, God willing, based on the 8 points of what we all should be doing. The first four I have talked about a lot in my posts and speeches already. So...Prepare Yourself...spiritually, mentally, and physically. The most overlooked for people is physical preparedness...so let's start there...with my suggestions.

THE 4S's...Shape, Self-defense, Shoot, Small group tactics


What did Thomas Jefferson consider the best form of exercise? "...I advise the gun. While this gives a moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprize, and independance to the mind. Games played with the ball and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be the constant companion of your walks." - Letter to his nephew Peter Carr, August 19, 1785

Indeed, firearms are the great equalizer and indispensable to freedom. However, the Right to Bear arms is not some abstract principle to be talked about...it is a right to be exercised. Learning to shoot ensures self-reliance but we must be able to safely handle firearms and shoot straight otherwise having one is irrelevant.

1. First learn how to safely handle and shoot a .22 rifle.

Project Appleseed is the best basic beginner rifle marksmanship training around. This is a full weekend of training the whole family can attend. Two events are happening locally in the next month:

August 24-25 Medical Lake, WA (I will be at this one)
September 14-15 Coeur d' Alene, ID

Sign up here: http://www.eventbrite.com/event/5134970836
What to bring is here: https://appleseedinfo.org/as_prepare.html

Rifles can be provided as loaners if necessary, and I believe ammo may be available for purchase at the event. If you're interested in that, let me know and I will contact the proper person. Also, Cabela's no has .22 ammo back in stock as of this morning limit 1 300 round box.

2. Second, learn how to safely handle/shoot a pistol or revolver.

Classes are put on locally by Sharp Shooting Indoor range.

Classes for all skill levels are available here: http://www.sharpshooting.net/classes.asp

3. Third, step it up to the next level and learn tactical training.

The best place in the country for this is Front Sight (I cannot say enough good things about them). It is in Nevada but well worth the trip and money.

Courses are here: http://www.frontsight.com/Courses.asp

Let me know your thoughts and experiences!

Semper Paratus,
