380 EZ Out In The Woods

I’ve worn corrective lenses since I was about 10 years old.  Without them I was pretty close to being blind.  I started wearing contacts when I was 15 and since then was really hesitant to wear glasses.  Probably because of wearing awful tortoise shell frames and then the horrible wired rims of the early 80″s.

I got lasik about 23 years ago and it made my vision GREAT !!  I really wish I could have had that kind of eyesight (without corrective lenses) when  played sports and worked construction.  But, when I started sitting at a desk in front of a computer for eight hours day, my vision started to fade.  It’s not really too bad, I think I can drive without corrective lenses but my eye doctor says differently.

Every year when I go to the eye doctor, she asks if I want good far vision or good near vision and I have always chosen “Far vision.”  But it got to the point where I could literally not read not read newspaper sized print even with cheaters on.  So this year I chose “Near vision.”  The doctor gave me “Mono vision” which is where my weak eye is focused closer and my dominate eye is focused for distance.

THIS WAS GREAT !  I could now look down the sights of my pistol and not have to close my left eye !!  The front sight was in perfect focus.

Well, I have had some problems with my eyes and I haven’t worn my contacts for over a week which is amazing given my vanity !!  Not wearing my contacts ins’t too bad, I mostly just need glasses just to drive.

Well, just for fun, I wanted to see how well I could shoot without my contacts.  This is the first time I’ve been able to get out to “The Woods” this year to do some fun outdoor shootin’!!!!

Not too bad !!

9 rounds at 7 yards and 9 at 10 yards.  The paper is 11 X 17 so it’s not a full sized silhouette.

Fuck the Media, Fuck the Democrats

Yes I know saying “media” and “Democrats” is redundant.

For a week now, leading elected Democrats and the media have been publicly calling a sitting President a racist without a single shred of evidence.

Fuck the Media, Fuck the Democrats

We literally have nothing in common with those people anymore.

I do think though that this could well backfire on those repugnant people and convince a lot of bystanders to vote for Trump in 2020.

Gun Tip Of The Day

(remember, free advice is worth what you paid for it)

If you carry and if there is the time that you need to pull your weapon out, please be ready to drop everything else in your hands.

I have seen too many videos on youtube where a person pulls out their weapon for defensive use and they keep holding onto their coffee, wallet, purse, cellphone etc.

TASK AT HAND !!!!

So endth the lesson

Snopes Debunks Snopes As A Hoax

Snopes.com Verified to be a Hoax – According to Snopes.com

So imagine my shock when I found out this week that Snopes decided to research claims that Snopes itself was a hoax. Snopes, true to its commitment, conducted an in-depth investigation. Stunningly, Snopes concluded that in fact there was no credible evidence to support the existence of Snopes, and reported its findings at its web site, Snopes.com

But interestingly, Snopes then conducted a further investigation and discovered something even more perplexing: Its subsequent study concluded that the alarmist claims by Snopes that it does not exist were in fact just a nefarious hoax, and that Snopes was in fact real after all. It pointed to reams of statistical reports showing thousands of daily web site visits, to debunk claims that it did not exist. But it didn’t end there. Shortly after that study, yet another Snopes investigation was launched, aiming this time to determine whether or not the previous Snopes report – which had reported that the Snopes report claiming thatSnopes.com was a hoax, was itself a hoax – was in fact a hoax or not. 

As of this writing, the answer is still uncertain. It appears that Snopes has been caught in some carnival “funhouse of mirrors” endless loop of claims and counter claims about its own existence. As a result of this chain reaction of Snopes investigations into its own existence, the entire bank of Snopes web servers finally overloaded and crashed – that is, if we are to believe that those web servers ever existed in the first place.

For me, Snopes was my go to site to debunk stories that coworkers told. (I would already know, but had to prove it to them).

Then BLAMMO !!!! Obama got elected and all the sudden Snopes pretty much became liberal propaganda.
