CMP National Matches

 Volunteering for temporary work asignments used to be a bad habit of mine but one that got me lots of free travel. I haven't volunteered for virtualy anything since I retired but considered doing so dor the CMP National Matches last year but never got around to it. Got an email from the CMP today; they are seeking volunteers to work their national matches in June and July. I signed up for aeveral days at the rifle matches at the end of June and for the pistol matches on July 1 & 2. 

If they select me, I am guessing it could be an interesting and fun time. Heck, I might even decide to join the fun as a competitor in the pistol match. Anyway, I would be doing my part to help a decent organization promote the shooting sports and the RKBA.

Oh My Aching Loins

Just thinking about this hurts. A California man (where else could he come from) has promised to emasculate himself should Donald Trump begin construction of a border wall. Read the tiny tidbit about it here.

I remember, in a bygone era, at least in New York City, the police would have already detained this guy and placed him into Bellevue Hospital's psychiatric ward for mental observation. Had he been found a danger to himself or society, he would have been forcibly committed. That was long ago; in today's world he probably will be hailed as some sort of hero by the loonies on the left (which I am beginning to think is every last one of them).

Do You Remember When Hollwood Types Had Balls Of Steel...

...and actually rose to the occasion to defend America and in essence all of the free world. If you want to see a list of many actors who joined the military during WWII, click on this link. I never realized the facts mentioned about John Wayne. I knew he was never in the military service but did not realize why nor how many times he tried to enlist.

An Arizona Gas Station Clerk Broke The Rules...

...and it proved to be a crime stopper of a rules 'violation'. Instead of allowing an alleged armed 17 year old dirtbag to rob him at gunpoint, the clerk reportedly pulled his own pistol and shot the would be robber. While trying to make a getaway, the failed robber realized his arm was not functioning (maybe because he had been shot in the arm) and ran to a restaurant for help. Police were called and responded and brought him to a hospital where they say he admitted to the failed robbery attempt and also to another, but successful one, a couple of days earlier. As reported here he also 
allegedly told police the reason he hit gas stations: "they are supposed to just hand over the money and not try to stop anyone." (Source.) I guess the clerk never heard that one before and even if he had, he decided to break the rules and fought back! Way to go brother in arms.

Yes folks, armed citizens can indeed help curtail crime but if you read my blog it is highly likely you knew that already.

All the best,
Glenn B
