The Case for Training

I recently asked my friends about where to send someone for training with a pistol and an AR-15. I received multiple messages saying that I should just bring whoever needs the training out to a match, and they’ll figure out what works and what doesn’t.

I don’t think this is the right answer. We should encourage folks to get training if they feel like they need it. Certainly there are people who train WAY too much, but I think they’re in the minority.

The News

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg put her foot in her mouth last week during an interview with the New York Times. The Wall Street Journal Law Blog picked up on it, and there’s some interesting discussion about how she may now have to recuse herself from any 2A cases going forward since she wasn’t impartial during the interview.

Pokemon Go released this week. It’s a video game that requires people to get up off their butt and actually do things, and go places to advance in the game. Mostly it has you go to public places, but the data set they have for the game does sometimes have landmarks setup near peoples homes. In a case in Florida, some jackass fired shots at some Pokemon players driving away from his residence. 

Listen, if you’re playing the game, respect private property. If you see people playing the game, don’t be an asshole unless it’s warranted.

Gear that Doesn’t Suck

Every run your brass tumbler all night long on accident? I have, but I don’t anymore because I use the Belkin Conserv Socket now. It lets the tumbler run for 30 minutes/3 hours/6 hours and then shuts it off automatically. It also works good for crock pots.
