One of the best quotes I have heard regarding shooting comes from Evan (or at least I heard it from him first):

"Continue shooting until your sight picture is degraded by a lack of target."

Another one I carry with me to work every day:

"Do what needs to be done and worry about the demons later."

Both statements ring true with me.

--Richard

"We must reject the idea that every time a law is broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions." --Ronald Reagan

Ideas are more powerful than guns. We would not let our enemies have guns, why should we let them have ideas.

"I've spoken of the shining city all of my political life, but I don't know if I ever quite communicated what I saw when I said it. But in my mind it was a tall proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, wind-swept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace, a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity, and if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it and see it still." Ronald Reagan

What's the worst thing that can happen?...Okay, what's the next worst? Anonymous; and likely to remain that way.

An armed society is a polite society...Lazarus Long

The darkest part of the night is just before it starts to rain.

Democracy is two coyotes and a sheep debating the dinner menu. Liberty is a well armed sheep, willing to contest the outcome of the vote.
