rules

I’m not saying he DIDN’T make them up… but did he?

You can check out the Rules Of Gunfighting I posted about a couple years ago.  I’ve never seen it attributed to him, but if he actually did make most of the list up he gains some points with me, because the list is pretty badass.

“MOVE – Motionless Operators Ventilate Easily”   haha good one

At 7:28 he starts to justify downrange photography again, and about how “the reality is no gunfight environment is perfectly safe” *eye roll*, then he goes on to compare that to the collateral damage from that recent NYC shooting where innocent bystanders got hurt by stray bullets.  Whatever James… It looks like you’re never going to back down on this point.  I hope you’re paying your photographers well.

This video would be funny if it was fiction:

*facepalm* what a mess.  The style of the video reminds me a lot of Penn & Teller’s Bullshit… good stuff.

Thoughts?

One evening in the autumn of 1940 bombs fell on the course and Temporary Rules were introduced to allow for the consequences. Dr Goebbels, Hitler’s Minister of Propaganda, used the Club’s Temporary Rules as the theme of a broadcast by William (Lord Haw-Haw) Joyce: “By means of these ridiculous reforms the English snobs try to impress the people with a kind of pretended heroism. They can do so without danger, because, as everyone knows, the German Air Force devotes itself only to the destruction of military targets and objectives of importance to the war effort.” Evidently the Club’s laundry outbuilding was a military target.

You can’t say that the rules aren’t fair.

No one likes the TSA rules, mainly because they are not logical. That said, if you are planning on flying you need to abide by them or you simply will not get on the plane.  Because of this I just grin and bear it in order to get pushed through the line faster and get where I need to go.

Fellow gun blogger SaysUncle is trying a different approach though:

I’m going to get all absolutist at the ticket counter today. They’re going to ask me to certify that my checked firearm is unloaded. I will say all firearms are always loaded. Then they’ll have to call some one from the local police to handle the weapon. Then, they’ll ask me to certify that it is unloaded again. I will say all firearms are always loaded. And we’ll be stuck in a loop. (Source)

Now don’t get me wrong.. in a normal everyday situation outside of an airport I’d see that as a perfect opportunity to go all “Jeff Cooper” on someones ass too.

At an airport though, where even a 3.1 oz bottle of handsanitizer in a carryon is a threat to national security… I’d play their stupid game.

Otherwise it might be:

“Yes sir/ma’am my firearm is unloaded” is probably your safest bet.

Godspeed SaysUncle… Godspeed

Great advice in this infographic.  A lot more accurate than that one I posted a couple days ago.

This is the kind of thing that should be handed out to people at safety courses. Some people like myself are more visual learners, so this works a lot better than just reading some text.

Ever wanted to know what the regulations were from state to state when travelling with a gun?

Dustin from Dustin’s Gun Blog has a great list of links he complied that will help you out – HERE

There is even a sweet looking iPhone app.
