ENDO found the training vid that was shown to me -Knife on Gun

Police Officers Getting Owned By Knife Attacks In Training Video

That is the same video that was shown to me during my training way back in the early '90's.  It is also why my handgun training distance is 7 yards or 21 feet.  If I can put all of my rounds into a 10" pie pan at 21 feet, that is all I am concerned about.  And with my Taurus model 82 which I've carried since 1991 using 2 HKS Speedloaders, I can do just that.  Eighteen rounds into a 10" pie pan at 21 feet in under 18 seconds.  With my 1911A1 I am actually a little bit slower, around 24 seconds, as I don't normally carry it or practice with it as much.  Part of it is the higher ammunition cost, the other part is the difference between the long double action trigger pull on my Taurus versus the single action pull of the 1911A1.

So if you are ever confronted with a knife wielding assailant, disengage and get your weapon out.  Get distance between you and that blade.  You can not be proactive without committing murder, you can only REACT to their attack.  So get some distance and get your weapon on target.  Don't shoot until they try to move back in towards you.  And if you find yourself suddenly against a knife, don't try to draw your weapon.  Do everything you can to control their knife, put them on the ground then disengage and then draw your weapon.  Trying to draw your weapon while they charge at you is a distraction.  Control that knife.  Then get some distance and draw your own weapon.

Most of All, survive.  Even if you get slashed or stabbed, don't let it stop you.  FIGHT!  Make it hard for the other guy.  I know of a St. Louis City Police Officer who got stabbed under his vest.  He didn't lay down and die.  He fought with that guy, took the knife away, and even while bleeding badly from his gut, still cuffed his assailant, then called for back up and an ambulance.  Afterwards it took him almost 8 months to get back on the street, but he WON.  He SURVIVED.  There have been cases of people who are wounded who just shut down and then die from a survivable wound.  The Mental Aspect, the willingness to fight to survive, will help keep you alive.

Bob has a video you need to see - 7 round magazine laws

Because homeowners only need seven rounds to defend the lives of their families. Right, New York?

You really should go watch that video.  It shows just who magazine restriction laws actually help and hurt.

Tolerance ...-from the inbox

Subject: Tolerance ........................... sandy

Jiggs McDonald, NHL Hall of Fame broadcaster speaking in  Ontario , says......

"I am truly perplexed that so many of my friends are against another mosque being built in  Toronto . I think it should be the goal of every Canadian to be tolerant regardless of their religious beliefs. Thus the mosque should be allowed, in an effort to promote tolerance.

That is why I also propose that two nightclubs be opened next door to the mosque thereby promoting tolerance from within the mosque. We could call one of the clubs, which would be gay, "The Turban Cowboy ", and the other a topless bar called "You Mecca Me Hot."

Next door should be a butcher shop that specializes in pork, and adjacent to that an open-pit barbecue pork restaurant, called " Iraq o' Ribs."

Across the street there could be a lingerie store called "Victoria Keeps Nothing Secret ", with sexy mannequins in the window modeling the goods.

Next door to the lingerie shop there would be room for an adult sex toy shop,"Koranal Knowledge ", its name in flashing neon lights, and on the other side a liquor store called " Morehammered."

All of this would encourage Muslims to demonstrate the tolerance they demand of us, so their mosque issue would not be a problem for others."

Yes we should promote tolerance, and you can do your part by passing this on.

Lovely I need a new battery

How the heck did my dogs go through

50 plus pounds of dog food in two weeks?  Every month I take one of the kids with me when we get the dog and cat food.  The cats get 24 pounds, the dogs get 50 pounds.  Every month I also have to buy an extra bucket, because the cats can't eat 24 pounds of cat food every month, so I have 4 buckets of catfood, 3 of them are filled, 1 is empty the last is just under half full.  The dogs I normally have to buy a new bucket every other month to take the over flow.  So they have 8 buckets for their food.  50 pounds fills almost 3, 5 gallon buckets.  And the dogs normally only consume about 2 maybe 2 and half buckets of food a month.  So as you see, every month I run a surplus.  Except this month.  I just checked and I have 5 empty dog food buckets.  FIVE!?!?  It should only be 2.

So detective work was done.  MY Ex who lives a stones throw (Literally) away from me has a new dog.  And he is putting on weight like gangbusters.  And so is Kilo a dog I got from a friend.  Kilo has gone from 3 pounds to now 7 pounds in less than 2 months and all of it feels like muscle.  He is finally able to go outside and play with the other dogs where before he was stuck in a small apartment.  Hugo, (My ex's dog) has gone from about 13 pounds to a very stout 20 pounds in the 4 months he has been here.  He also can run outside and play with the other dogs.

So know I need to put an extra $25.00 into the budget every month for an additional 50lb bag of dog food.

I think when I go to the store thursday, I'll take all of the kids.  There is no way I'll be able to push a shopping cart with 124 lbs of dog and cat food in it.  And I'll have to buy a couple more buckets just in case.

Border Fence over at Ace's

"The US government does not want a border fence built; the political class does not want a border fence built; the media class, virtually indistinguishable from the political class, does not want a border fence built.

On the other hand, 75% of the public does want a border fence built.

Obviously, the political/media class wins, as usual."

These Idjits need to be forced to live in a house where these illegals are coming through.  Without their security, and since they don't like firearms, without them as well.  Make them live there for a few months.  See how they like the feeling of people coming through their property, stealing from them, and in some cases attacking them.


Until such time as we can control who come in there can be no true immigration reform.

No Amnesty, no NOTHING until the BORDER IS SECURE!

Why did the FBI miss the radicalization for the Boston Bombers?

"It is quite possible, though, the FBI agents who interviewed Tsarnaev on both occasions failed to understand what they saw and heard because that’s what they were trained to do. As The Washington Examiner’s Mark Flatten reported last year, FBI training manuals were systematically purged in 2011 of all references to Islam that were judged offensive by a specially created five-member panel. Three of the panel members were Muslim advocates from outside the FBI, which still refuses to make public their identities. Nearly 900 pages were removed from the manuals as a result of that review. Several congressmen were allowed to review the removed materials in 2012, on condition that they not disclose what they read to their staffs, the media, or the general public."

Political Correctness makes us less safe.  And the Leftists White Guilt punishes those who are innocent of everything save being "White"

How long until the next Terror Attack because the people who are supposed to stop those attacks, don't even have the training to do so?

Despicable - Benghazi survivors being threatened by Administration

"Benghazi: Threats against ‘Whistleblowers’ Alleged
By James Rosen

At least four career officials at the State Department and the Central Intelligence Agency have retained lawyers, or are in the process of doing so, as they prepare to provide sensitive information about the Benghazi attacks to Congress, Fox News has learned.

Victoria Toensing, a former Justice Department official and Republican counsel to the Senate intelligence committee, is now representing one of the State Department employees. She told Fox News her client and some of the others, who consider themselves whistleblowers, have been threatened by unnamed Obama administration officials.

“I’m not talking generally, I’m talking specifically about Benghazi – that people have been threatened,” Toensing said in an interview Monday. “And not just the State Department. People have been threatened at the CIA.”

If it doesn't matter, why are the surviving witnesses being threatened with damage to their careers?  If it doesn't matter as former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton screamed out in congress, why do these people need to retain legal counsel?

I have said it before and I will say it again.  Our dead deserve justice and we deserve the truth.

Gun Control Proponents seek Ballot Initiative

"OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) -- After struggling to sway both state and federal lawmakers, proponents of expanding background checks for gun sales are now exploring whether they will have more success by taking the issue directly to voters. 

While advocates generally prefer that new gun laws be passed through the legislative process, especially at the national level, they are also concerned about how much sway the National Rifle Association has with lawmakers.
Washington Rep. Jamie Pedersen, a Democrat who had sponsored unsuccessful legislation on background checks at the state level, said a winning ballot initiative would make a statement with broad implications. 

"It's more powerful if the voters do it — as opposed to our doing it," Pedersen said. "And it would make it easier for the Legislature to do even more." 

Can the Pro Second Amendment Groups come up with a counter ballot initiative that will protect and possibly expand the protection of our rights under the Constitution? 

With the Leftists proclivity for voter fraud I think that Pro-2A proponents would need to get out and have a counter initiative with even more signatures.  And knowing how the media muddies issues they need to make sure the initiative is clearly worded with no possibility for confusion as to what it says or does.

Army says "No Tanks"

Lawmakers from both parties have devoted nearly half a billion dollars in taxpayer money over the past two years to build improved versions of the 70-ton Abrams.

But senior Army officials have said repeatedly, "No thanks."

Just one more example of Congress trying to spread the wealth to their campaign donors and keep their own campaign warchests full.  However they are doing it with OUR Tax dollars.

So Congress is going to spend money on tanks at almost $5,000,000.00 (Five Million) a pop.  While scuttling the Army's request for a new COIN aircraft and a new transport aircraft.  Althugh on the 2 planes it's more of the Air Force taking over the program then killing it with Congressional collusion.  The Airforce  is still upset that it used to be part of the Army and is jealous of maintaining it's own budget and prestige at the expense of our ground force elements.

I think XBRADTC did a write up about those two boondoggles, although I'm not totally sure.

Rattlesnakes Logic-from the inbox

Some will argue this is bad logic... but you are allowed to have your own opinion in Texas.

Now the news media will spend days trying to determine why these men did what they did in Boston.  They will want to know what America did to make these brothers so angry with us.  They will want to know why these men were not arrested before they did something unlawful.  The media will be in a tissy about the new era of home grown radicals and about how they could live among us and still hate us.
Here in west Texas, I have rattlesnakes on my place.  I have killed a rattlesnake on the front porch.  I have killed a rattlesnake on the back porch.  I have killed rattlesnakes in the barn, in the shop and on the driveway.  I kill every rattlesnake I encounter.  I kill rattlesnakes because a rattlesnake will bite me and inflict me with poison.  I don't stop to wonder why a rattlesnake will bite me.  It will bite me because it is a rattlesnake and that is what rattlesnakes do.  I don't try to reason with a rattlesnake…I just kill it.  I don't try to get to know the rattlesnake better so that I can find a way to live with the rattlesnakes and convince them not to bite me…I just kill them.  I don't quiz a rattlesnake to see if I can find out where the other snakes are because (a) it won't tell me (b) I already know that they live on my place…I just kill the rattlesnake and move on to the next one.  I don't look for ways that I might be able to change the rattlesnake to a non-poisonous rat snake.  I just kill it.  Oh, and on occasion I kill a rat snake, because I thought it was a rattlesnake at the time.  Also, I know that for every rattlesnake that I kill, two more lurk out there.  In my lifetime I will never be able to rid my place of rattlesnakes.  Do I fear them?  No!  Do I respect what they can do to me?  Yes!  And because of that respect I give them their fair justice….I kill them.
Maybe as a country we should give more credit to the jihadist just being a rattlesnake!

Medical School Entrance Exam-from the inbox

Based on what we have seen, this must be true.

Medical School Entrance Exam:

A friend of mine was intent on going to medical school.

The entrance exam included several questions that would determine eligibility.
One of the questions was: "Rearrange the letters "P N E S I" to spell out an important part of the human body that is more useful when erect"

Those who spelled "SPINE" became doctors... the rest ended up in Congress.

Still very sore

and having a slight problem with both of my computers.  On the desktop which sits next to the bed on an old TV stand, one of the drives is being screwy.  I think I'm going to have to buy a new drive and clone this one. so I don't lose all my pictures, sound files or e-books.  On the netbook, I have a large, large type keyboard and several of the keys are feeling weird.  If I can find the old IBM type keyboard with a USB connector, I think I'll get one of those.  Also the mouse for the netbook is freezing up.  The touchpad on it works fine but the mouse seems to be messing up.  I don't know if it's the mouse or the driver for the mouse, so I'll dig a different mouse of the junk drawer and try it tomorrow.

Other than my back and legs being sore, painful and alternating between numb and throbbing, I'm not doing too to bad.

My daughter Melissa and I will be leaving for the NRA Annual Meeting in Houston about 5:00 am friday morning.  I'm not to sure my back will be recovered enough from my trip to St. Louis to be able to drive the 230 miles there and then try to walk around all day.  So I'm taking the wheelchair with me just in case I need it, although I hope I won't.  I have enough junk to carry already.

So if you are going to the NRA Annual Meeting in Houston, BOLO for a gray bearded man possibly in a wheel chair possibly using a cane in the company of a beautiful Flautist.  I haven't decided if I'm going to wear one of my 5.11 Utilikilts or not.  Speaking of the 5.11 Utilikilt, they are taking orders on them again.  Only until the 30th though.I just ordered 2 more.  If you haven't ordered yours their website is:

I also need to decide which hat I'm going to wear.  I need to cover my shining cranial solar panel so as not to blind everyone, but my Pirate Skull and Bones ball cap is in really bad shape, but my brimmed safari hats make using the camera annoying at times.

So, any suggestions?  Black Utilikilt?  Khaki Utilikilt? Jeans? Pirate Cap? Khaki Safari Hat? Blue Safari Hat? Camo Safari Hat?  Or should I just buy a new hat and surprise everyone?

I'm going to get off and try to get some sleep.  So see y'all in the mornin.

Yes that photo is NSFW, but you have to see it to understand something.  Look at the faces of the women attacking Archbishop Andre-Joseph Leonard.  What do you see in their faces?  Now look at the Archbishop.  What do you see?

The women were attacking the Archbishop for the Catholic Church's "Hatred" of Gays.  I ask you, who is the true "Hater" in that picture?  The man who sits there and quietly prays?  Or the women who with their visages twisted into snarls attack him in public with a symbol of his faith?

Tell me, just who is intolerant?

Who is the Hatemonger?

Who is perverting the symbols of anothers faith to strike out at them?

I've had people attack my faith and me for having it.  And yet I do not attack them.  And this seems to just egg them on to greater efforts of attack upon my faith.

Why is that?

You tell me, "Who" is the hater?

Some Links

I'm still in a lot of pain, and it's much easier right now to just post the links to stuff I think you might find interesting and pertinent. I'm going to take a muscle relaxer and try to get some rest.  And correcting all of your own spelling and grammatical errors while you are hurting isn't fun.  I wish blogger or Firefox's built in editors were setup for easier editing.

Dogs and Paper Towels or Toilet paper

why do the 2 smallest of my dogs insist on destroying any roll of TP or Paper Towels they can reach?  I keep a roll of each next to the bed, the TP for blowing my nose or cleaning my glasses, the paper towels for cleaning up small spills or cleaning my computer screen.  And in less than 4 minutes Ariel and Kilo have destroyed both of them.  I only left the room to check the kids were getting the laundry done and I come back in to paper EVERYWHERE on my bed and floor.


Where is the broom?

Lemp Mansion in St. Louis Mo

The Lemp Mansion  I used to work security for one of the many St. Louis City Housing Authority, Housing Projects about 4 blocks from the above pictured house.  My partner and I would drive past it several times a night, every night.  Do I believe it is haunted?  I don't know.  I do know that there were many times we would drive by and it appeared there was a light on in the house when no one should be there.  I do know that at one time there was access to the Cherokee Cave in the basement.  And I do know that the government has areas of the Cherokee Caves cut off from public access.  Is the house haunted?

You decide for yourself.

Texas vs California

"I’ve watched with amusement the California v. Texas battles in the media.

Any animosity in that debate is directed not toward California, but toward Texas. Texans, for the most part, just shake their heads in amazement at what Californians are continually doing to themselves, wave and smile and encourage hardworking, productive Californians to flee their worker’s paradise for an American state. But that’s changed."

Very very true. And the Editor of the Sacramento Bee and the Cartoonist Jack Ohman owes the ENTIRE State of Texas an apology for their crass cartoon and crass disgusting response to Governor Perrys request for an apology.

LADIES HANDBAGS-from the inbox

Have you ever noticed girls who set their handbags on public toilet floors, then go directly to their dining tables and set it on the table? 

Happens a lot! It's not always the 'restaurant food' that causes stomach distress. Sometimes 'what you don't know will hurt you'!

Read on.............
Mom got so upset when guests came in the door and plopped their handbags down on the counter where she was cooking or setting up food. She always said that handbags are really dirty, because of where they have been.

It's something just about every woman carries with them. While we may know what's inside our handbags, do you have any idea what's on the outside? Women carry handbags everywhere; from the office to public toilets to the floor of the car. Most women won't be caught without their handbags, but did you ever stop to think about where your handbag goes during the day.

'I drive a school bus, so my handbag has been on the floor of the bus a lot,' says one woman. 'On! The floor of my car, and in toilets.'

'I put my handbag in grocery shopping carts and on the floor of the toilet,' says another woman 'and of course in my home which should be clean.'

We decided to find out if handbags harbour a lot of bacteria. We learned how to test them at Nelson Laboratories in Salt Lake , and then we set out to test the average woman's handbag.

Most women told us they didn't stop to think about what was on the bottom of their handbag. Most said at home they usually set their handbags on top of kitchen tables and counters where food is prepared.

Most of the ladies we talked to told us they wouldn't be surprised if their handbags were at least a little bit dirty. 
It turns out handbags are so surprisingly dirty, even the microbiologist who tested them was shocked. 

Microbiologist Amy Karen of Nelson Labs says nearly all of the handbags tested were not only high in bacteria, but high in harmful kinds of bacteria. Pseudomonas can cause eye infections, staphylococcus aurous can cause serious skin infections, and salmonella and e-coli found on the handbags could make people very sick.

In one sampling, four of five handbags tested positive for salmonella, and that's not the worst of it. 'There is faecal contamination on the handbags' says Amy. Leather or vinyl handbags tended to be cleaner than cloth handbags, and lifestyle seemed to play a role. People with kids tended to have dirtier handbags than those without, with one exception.

The handbag of one single woman who frequented nightclubs had one of the worst contaminations of all. 'Some type of faeces, or possibly vomit' says Amy. 
So the moral of this story is that your handbag won't kill you, but it does have the potential to make you very sick if you keep it on places where you eat. Use hooks to hang your handbag at home and in toilets, and don't put it on your desk, a restaurant table, or on your kitchen countertop. 

Experts say you should think of your handbag the same way you would a pair of shoes. 'If you think about putting a pair of shoes on your countertops, that's the same thing you're doing when you put your handbag on the countertops.'
Your handbag has gone where individuals before you have walked, sat, sneezed, coughed, spat, urinated, emptied bowels, etc!

Do you really want to bring that home with you?

The microbiologists at Nelson also said cleaning a handbag will help. Wash cloth handbags and use leather cleaner to clean the bottom of leather handbags.
