Kenfuscious say to the acronym man...

...the things i'll miss the most,are the things i already miss the most...so bring it!...does that make any sense?

...they won't be back,nor will things ever be "like they used to"...we've slid too far down that slope already...i hope y'all are training the young'uns to be liberty minded too...my sons training will start in earnest this season,so far so good with his form,good muzzle discipline(air soft BBs'aint soft...lol)he'll soon be ten so he still has that thing i call a 'call of duty' rash(can't kill that game with poison)...but his weapon control,muzzle and trigger disciplines are topkick..."but wait,are you telling me you shoot each other with those...those...those guns? BB guns?"..."why you could put yer eye out!"...
...damn straight,hurts like hell too(stings really..lol)...paint ball too,those lil'bastards hurt like fuck(although the boy hasn't been on the receiving end of a paint ball yet...yet...)...when ya got shit flyin'atcha,you react different...when yer targets are evading you,and returning 'fire',you learn to shoot different...

...anyway,those who know,know...practice,practice,practice...how many of us had BB gun fights as boys?...real BB guns(i'll only pump it once...i promise...lol) air soft BB shooters have come along way...paint ball?,not for me/us...yet,never know,civilization might last long enuff...he already wants one...he said "i get the paintball,you'll get the BB gun"...i told him "deal"...he thinks it'll decrease my 10 or 12 to 1 hit ratio...lol
...my daughters lost that "cool weapon edge" when they grew into?...well,daughters...the 'girl' power overode the 'gun' power...but my youngest daughter has her heart set on that damn pink 10/22(grrrr) the oldest soon to be shopping for her carry gun,they still would do better with training...they like droppin'the hammer,but i'll be damned if they would crawl around in the mud...

...of those things i miss the most,runnin' around the woods,with a handful and a half of pals,shootin'each other to shit,with them damn BB guns...'one eye Jack',was famous for the "no head shots" rule...no shit!...happened the summer before me playin'...just don't say anything about that,when someone says "you'll put yer eye out kid"...

BB gun wars when we were kids were fun.

In the late 80's came paintball (man, was it expensive to play back then!). Fel was always aghast when I returned home with half dollar sized welts from the hits I'd taken after a day of playing, but man was it fun!

As an aside, I had the opportunity of watching a professional paint ball player go up against a SWAT team simulating a hostage situation.

All of the cops left the house with multiple marks. The paintball player didn't even have splatter.

It is a whole different game when someone is hunting you, and you've only been trained to hunt and not defend.

Best to you and your kin, Ken. I'm sure you have a fine boy who won't break your heart like your girls did.

Maybe you can point them over at Brigid at mausersandmuffins.blogspot to show them you don't have to give up guns to be girly.

...mornin'Catman,they didn't break it,just tugged it in a different direction...they're damn fine shots,but blissfully ignoring the rape of my Republic...at least i think,both could drop the hammer to save themselves,or us from zombies(?)

...good call on Brigid,and they aint gave up on guns,they just want'em pink(grrr)...

...see ya soon

Ken,my boys are late 20's early 30's.I didn't get to play at all last year but normally we play woods ball at least every weekend. It is a freakin blast Screw work I am playin this year. Since my boys and the others don't hunt much it teaches em to walk quiet,which ambush sites work and which don't.Now if I could just quit being point man. Point gets killed pretty regularly,but it shows the rest of fireteam where the bad guys are. Big fun! Take care Brother!

...Brother China,yep,point man is one of only two types in the squad...the best or the worst...lol,never put a mediocre man on point,personally i like a dual point,staggered parallel movement,strength permitting...a "main" force,and a "reactionary" force,we used to do the 4/3,3/2 and 2/1(the group slowly dwindled in number)anyway,when my boys buds come over,invariably we're playin'guns...they play/learn,i teach/play...win,win
