Col. Jeff Copper: Gone to the Great Range in the Sky

I log to my favorite Discussion Board and I am slapped by the news that Col. Jeff Cooper has passed away. Col. Cooper was the Father of modern defensive pistolcraft. The Alpha of all the "new" tactics & techniques that we use to train and fight with a handgun. Directly or indirectly, millions of shooters today use one or many of the techniques he developed and there are not enough “thank yous” in this world to express the debt we owe him.

I never had the pleasure to meet the man. Those who did describe him as cantankerous, self-assured and a teacher. His tongue was as deadly as his guns and I am gonna let the Colonel himself shoot away:

-Remember the first rule of gunfighting... "have a gun."

-One cannot legislate the maniacs off the street... these maniacs can only be shut down by an armed citizenry. Indeed bad things can happen in nations where the citizenry is armed, but not as bad as those which seem to be threatening our disarmed citizenry in this country at this time.

-Owning a handgun doesn't make you armed any more than owning a guitar makes you a musician.

-Pick up a rifle and you change instantly from a subject to a citizen.

-One bleeding-heart type asked me in a recent interview if I did not agree that "violence begets violence." I told him that it is my earnest endeavor to see that it does. I would like very much to ensure—and in some cases I have—that any man who offers violence to his fellow citizen begets a whole lot more in return than he can enjoy.

-Individually, we do not bear arms because we are afraid. We bear arms as a declaration of capacity. An armed man can cope - either in the city or in the wilderness - and because he is armed, he is not afraid.

Rules of Engagement

In warfare, one of the surest methods to lose is to let the enemy dictate the Rules of Engagement. This also translates to the Ideological Warfare we are having right now with the Left: they are dictating how should we fight against them and cry foul to their referees if we deviate one millimeter from their rules but they have no shame in stepping out a mile and throw sand in our faces. In fact, they play without rules

Remember, we are not involved in a sporting event here. This is survival of a way of life. We are fighting against people that want us gone and they get to keep all the toys. It is not, as they try to portray, a search for a common ground in which all could live. Don’t buy that line of crap for one second. They want you submitted, gone or dead if possible. Their ideas are the only ones valid and yours must be erased and if it takes massive lobotomies or mass executions, so be it.
Right now, we are still fighting with words and in a draw. Soon enough they will step up and use harsher methods. When this happens, don’t cry foul and ask the referee for a penalty, he’s been bought and paid for and you will be out of the game. The only solution will be to play even harsher and eliminate them. It is your life, be ready to defend it.

Chismes que llegan

Informaciones llegadas de fuentes secretas y fidedignas.

1) Hay discusiones dentro del campo chavezoide acerca de lo que puede venir despues de las elecciones de Noviembre en USA y sin el conocimiento de Hugo Rafael. La orden dada es apoyo irrestricto a los candidatos democratas y sabotear a los candidatos republicanos para cambiar el balance dentro del congreso Americano. Los nuevos lideres Democratas como Pelosi y Reed darian mejor tratamiento o ignorarian al Gobierno Chavista. El temor es que los Republicanos mantengan el control y el Presidente Bush decida apretarle las tuercas a Chavez antes de que se acabe su presidencia.

2) El grupo de discusion esta considerando que hacer si los Republicanos se quedan en el poder en Noviembre. Al parecer el experimento Bolivariano no esta dando los frutos revolucionarios que se esperaban. Bolivia esta en proceso de desintegracion, Lula esta en lo suyo e ignora los comando de Hugo Rafael y los viajes del mismisimo Hugo visitando a cuanto loco y satrapa queda en el mundo no han hecho sino demostrarle a la los europeos y confirmar a los americanos que Venezuela se ha convertido en un manicomio comunista. Los Chavezoides no quieren perder la teta multimillonaria que les esta entrando y que estan depositando en los bancos internacionales de las Islas Caiman y Brickel Avenue en el "odiado" Miami USA.

3) Si las cosas se ponen color de hormiga chiquita, dicese que los Chavezoides gubernamentales estan pensando en elevar a Hugo Rafael a la altura del Che Guevara. Esto se realizaria con la bendicion del "Padronne" Fidel desde su lecho recuperativo en La Habana. Esta por decidirse el metodo de "ascencion a los cielos revolucionarios" pero seguro sera espectacular y la CIA y Bush seran acusados del hecho.

4) Despues de la Ascencion de Hugo, comenzara la razzia dentro de las filas Chavistas. Aquellos que se han negado a cumplir ordenes o han tenido los testiculos de iniciar algo sin el permiso de la plana mayor, seran acusados de contrarevolucionarios y traidores. Incluidos en el grupo seran los que el Vinatero Rangel considere "chusma" y que dan una muy mala imagen internacional a la Revolucion. Basicamente habar una "Noche de los Cuchillos Largos" y solo la crema selecta quedara en pie.

Gracias a los "chismosos" de confianza por enviarme la informacion. Cuidense y sigan siendo precavidos.

May God Bless you.

Celebrating five years of CWP

It’s been 5 years since I took the decision of obtaining Florida’s Concealed Weapons Permit and started to carry every day. I take a moment to reflect and share on what I have learned while carrying a handgun on my side for 1,825 days:

1) I am thankful to God that I have never had to use my gun to defend myself or my family. I am thankful to the Founding Fathers for inscribing the Second Amendment to the Constitution and I am thankful to all the individuals and organizations that fought the good fight to keep my right to carry arms.

2) I have learned to be patient, to be in control and to ignore Life’s little abuses. The idiot that cuts me off in traffic and flips me the finger is just that, an idiot. I smile at the thought of his blood pressure rising and his heart working closer to a heart attack. Who would have thought that a gun is better than an antidepressant or valium?

3) I was never the most disciplined person in the world and still ain’t for the most part. But concerning to my guns and my carrying I am inflexible. And somewhat that discipline is translating into other aspects of life. You just don’t screw around, deviate or forget yourself around guns. It can get you killed.

4) I have learned to see through the Anti-Gun agenda and learned that demagoguery is alive and well and holding hands with stupidity. I am even starting to think that Anti-Gunners do want to become outright dictators and fear an armed population that could put a stop to their dreams.

5) During these 5 years, I have not been involved in any OK-Corral-type shootouts, nor had an episode of road rage in which bullets flew all over South Florida or saw somebody being shot by a CCW owner because he wanted in the local Home Depot first. I have seen none of the above played in the News or printed in the paper. It must not be happening, contrary to what the Anti-Gunners predicted. And I wonder, if they are so wrong about CWP, what else are they so wrong about?

6) According to statistics, my fellow CWP owners and myself are almost five time more respectful of the law than the average Floridian. Which is amazing considering we are branded as blood-thirsty Vigilantes by those who seek to control us.

7) I belong to a shooting club that is populated with others as hardheaded and opinionated as I am. It makes for interesting times. But my club is not filed with toothless rednecks chugging beer with one hand and shooting his gun careless with the other. Our club is a Rainbow Coalition of races and attitudes that would scare the hell out of Jesse Jackson. And no wonder, we are armed and we do not tolerate bullshit.

8) I see now that an unarmed citizen is just a subject waiting to be ordered by whomever he chooses to be his dictator. How much suffering could have been avoided in this planet if people were given the tools to defend themselves.

9) I depend on myself for my defense, nobody else. If I get help from Law Enforcement, I will gladly take it. But at the end I am the one responsible for staying alive.

10) I need to get some more practice and shoot more!

Los Pollos De La Guerra

Hay que reconocer que los Chavezoides son entretenidos. No solo Hugo Rafael nos mantiene en suspenso a ver que va a decir como va a poner la torta cada día, el señor tiene substitutos que le hacen el quite cuando se va de viaje.

Ejemplo hermoso: El caso de las Valijas Diplomáticas. De acuerdo a lo que informa el Gobierno Venezolano, dentro de avión militar de USA que traía cargamento para la Embajada venia material bélico. Ni cortos ni perezosos, los defensores de la revolución atacaron los bultos que descargaron en el aeropuerto de Maiquetía y encontraron los muebles y artículos de mudanza de un miembro de la Embajada con protección diplomática, 800 kilos de pollo y repuestos para los aviones Bronco. Al fin las pruebas necesarias para demostrarle al mundo que los Yanquis tenían intenciones nefarias contra la revolución bolsivariana!

Claro que, como todo lo que sale de las mentes Chavezoides, la torta cayo inmediatamente. Si violaron valija diplomática al meterse con las pertenencias del diplomático. Y los repuestos para aviones militares? Venían a petición del Ministerio de la Defensa, traían su papelería en orden y venían anunciados. Ay coño... la cagada.

Uno se da cuenta que el gobierno se pisó una bola cuando en menos de 48 horas, no se menciona mas el asunto a través de los organismos mediáticos venezolanos o los Chavezoides Cibernéticos en el Internet. Aunque mención honorífica va con laureles al Chavezoide que especulo que quizás el armamento o otras cosas nefastas venían disfrazados dentro de los pollos. No hay nada mas entretenido que un bruto con imaginación.
