-Orral says:  “Still have not caught up(on show #14) and still like it so far. I agree with most of what I have heard and even if I disagree with you I still respect your presentation. I was born and raised in the South East corner of Arkansas; we were poor but not quite dirt poor. Got my first gun at 12 (a 22) and was expected to put meat on the table. Got a 12 ga. double barrel at 13, and bought my own 30/30 at 14. I have never hunted for sport and have never wore camo anything while hunting. Some of the methods I used to get meat would make a lot of people mad, but try being without food a day or two and your attitude will change quickly. The only trophies we had were the deer steaks in the skillet.” Weekly Bible Verse: James 4:1-3

“What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? 2 You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God. 3 When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.” (NIV)


Homework: James 4:11-12

- Four Rules of Gun Safety:

1. Treat every gun like it is loaded.

2. Never point the muzzle at anything you’re not willing to destroy.

3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on target.

4. Be sure of your target! And what’s beyond it.

(BUMPER) Wish List:


- .357 wheelgun (Python? Dare to dream?) as my current handguns are all semi-auto (9mm Glock 26 and 34 and a .22 S&W 422)

- An AR, but until either the New York (UN-)SAFE act is repealed or I move to a more enlightened state I'm out of luck with this one

- More practice time with my Glocks

- Like everyone else, I wish for more ammo availability, may need to start reloading
