"Good evening ladies and gentlemen, we come to you with a breaking news about the recent outbreak of nightmarish crearures of the night appearing in and around the local areas. Residents are ordered to stay inside, lock the doors, and be advised that help is on the way" the news reporters also think they have it figured out. Well I've got news for them, they don't.
I've been fighting this war for much longer than these nose picking pen pushers have been coming up with their lies. So now it's my turn to share my knowledge with you. If you want to live, you'll listen. If not, then you'll become one of them things out there.
First, there's the witches. Them broads and their spell books and broomsticks. The older ones are easy to take on. Broomsticks are usually a sign to having a weakness from water and sunlight. Hit that hag in the face, snap her broom, start a fire, and strap her to it....let the old hag burn then drown her ashes in water but wait until sunlight to burn her if you want her to really suffer.
Then there's the newer witches. The ones that figured out the spell books and use those purely. They're easy to beat if you snagged their books and burn them. Problem solved, no more witches. However be aware that they've got that book protected with a strong protection spell. So catch her at her most vulnerable moment, usually during mid spell.
So there's that problem easily solved. Some rules though, watch for large amounts of missing children, smell for rotting flesh, look for rotted teeth, and don't eat the freaking candy.
Next easiest, Goblins. These little devils are easy to beat...if you know how to bluff and twist their money. Yes, leprechauns are goblins but all goblins share the trait for wanting money. Use to to your advantage and make them not think. Small but intelligent crearures they are.
Most just want gold or silver. The clever but definitely go for anything silver to kill those damn things and keep the money. goblins are greedy which makes them easy to beat. They too hate sunlight because of how pure it is. Rock salt from a shotgun does wonders as well. Crush it up into pellets and cover the rocks in silver. Bad day for them.
So rock salt, silver, and once you see them not moving; coat the bastards in gasoline and light them up. Watch the magic happen.
Now that we have those two beat let's discuss the next creature. Demons. Now these things are definitely strong. They're fast too. Have to ability to blend with humans, disguise their voice to the human they possessed. There's only a few things to stop these evil fiends.
One - salt! Lots and lots of salt. Line the doors with it, windows, rooms, or if you're surrounded make a circle. This will buy you some time. The next thing is having the ability to read Latin. It's a dead language but extremely effective at summoning and exorcising demons. That's only if you want to try and save the meat suit and the soul that's trapped between here and hell.
Just be aware of the hell hounds that tend to follow along. Mostly anyone that makes a deal with demons or the devil is screwed when it comes to these fiends. So don't make deals. Just end the damn things.
The next is....oh hell hold on. *grabbing the shotgun with buckshot* we've gotta move! Damn stinches are clawing at the doors and breaking through the windows. We'll talk along the way! Just don't stop moving and don't get surrounded.
Those fiends are stinches or walkers or the walking dead or undead *heavy breathing* zombies in a nutshell. They just want to eat you, me, or anything with flesh hot blood and a heartbeat.
Simply destroy their brain. Shot them, stab them, or use a blunt force object to crush their skulls. Except for the runners...oh hell speaking of! *fire a shot into the runner's knees and then head* the most effective way to beat those things is take out their knees first. One bite, scratch, or fluid contact I.e. blood in mouth or salvia exchange and you're infected.
Kill them by any means necessary and burn them afterwards or in process of. If a member of your group gets infected then let them fight until the finish but shot them before they turn. It's harder afterwards, trust me.
*hears a howl* oh boy! Just what I wanted to hear. Quick into that building. Looks strong with steel shutters.
We're safe for now. That big yelp of a howl you heard was a werewolf. They're virtually harmless as a human but they have uncontrollable tempers and an even bigger temper when they transform into werewolf. The full bloods will turn into the full wolf but be over twelve feet tall on all fours. Half breeds are the most dangerous however.
Half breeds are uncontrollable and extremely violent. Most commonly standing on two legs and having a wolf head wolf legs, man body covered in fur, claws of a grizzly, speeds up to 60 mph. They extremely smart but stupid too because of their tempers. It makes them easy to trap and kill.
You can beat them by out thinking them, carry silver dust, using silver blades, and shooting them with silver bullets. However, in close combat, those beauties will rip you apart. So don't get grabbed.
There's just one more fiend....the most powerful of all. The vampire. Able to move at the speeds faster than the human eyes, extremely strong, extremely intelligent, these fiends have fangs and the older ones are worse. They have the mouth of a shark with the ability to rip you limb from limb.
Vampires are the deadliest of all the night fiends. In a group there's no escape and one on one is a challenge. Dracula also known as Vlad was the first and even he despises vampires. They are not to be triffled with if at all possible.
However they can be beaten. Mostly by using sunlight or a source of UV light. Then there's Holy water. Lastly there's garlic with silver dust. Deadlier than anything to any vamps that breathe on land. If you get into a one on one fight you can ash them with a silver stake through the heart...here's a tip, don't miss.
If at all possible hunt down two key items, If you have it then use it. The two items are, the knife of a demon named Ruby which can kill most of any fiends from hell including hellhounds ( not 100% ) or the 1836 colt Patterson belonging to Samuel Colt. This sweet baby will kill anything and everything that you encounter. Since Samuel Colt was a hunter as well.
The rarest item it the M1911A1 belonging to John Moses Browning. He too was a hunter but became well known by his pistol which killed everything from heaven or hell.
Best of luck friend...you're on your own from here. *opens the door to the back to escape the zombies up front*
One last thing.....don't die
This piece is about my experiences with males and females with firearms. If anyone takes offense to it, sorry but this is definitely from personal and professional experience....with that said, here goes.
When it comes to us males and females buying firearms everyone always has a different approach to firearms, the dealers, and individual safety guidelines. Now with that being said I have experienced a huge increase in what I call a "Macho Man" mentality when it comes to purchasing firearms.
I say this because as a male, most tend to want to act tough and hard when they're around firearms even if they don't know anything. Regardless of how much experience they may or may not have with firearms. Even though, I've found that those with a large amount of "experience" tend to be more rude and biased than those with less experience such as the rookie or experienced females.
With all firearm owners and those of us with years of training, we can almost pick up any firearm and tell if it's for us or not. Like myself, I can grip a pistol and fully extend my trigger finger on the side of the sidearm then slide my finger down and down ( from the side of the pistol's slide to the trigger guard ) and tell if it's for me or not. However my finger never once touches the trigger for any reason!
Most people dry fire on an empty chamber and that's up to them but one thing I've noticed especially with males is if you try to give them the run down on safety guide lines, they get offended and all butthurt. I've had a formal complaint filed on me because I've given a guy the rundown on safety guide lines and for asking, then telling them to remove their finger from the trigger.
I'm sorry you're butthurt for me telling you to do the right thing. Just like looking down the barrel from the receiving end! I've gotten complained on for telling someone that it was unsafe and they shouldn't do it. Again mostly by men! I can talk to females all day and night without any problems when it comes to firearms.
Why is that? Because I've found that women are more open to the idea of people helping them or for learning new things. Men have a total pride and macho man issue that they tend to follow. I myself can say I have a pride issue and that's why I can't stay down or become someone's lap dog. But I do know the macho man mentality will get you hurt, killed, or someone else hurt or killed.
So why do I say all this? Because I've had people claim to have years of military or law enforcement or hunting experience and they get mad at me (another individual who has been shooting since I was four, have a background in law enforcement and the military, nra pistol instructor, and self defense instructor) for saying hey you're wrong.
Here are some things I've heard from men claiming they have experience.
1. Finger resting on the trigger - I'm not going to squeeze the trigger *click* oh well I didn't mean to do that
2. Aiming into an open area with people - well it's not loaded! *click, rack, click*
3. Looking through a rifle scope - don't worry I'm not aiming at anyone *aiming into an area where people are walking*
4. Looking at a 9x19mm and a 44Mag - well which one of these will kill someone and go through armor? *gets mad when you explain that if you're wanting to kill people then it's a NO-GO"
5. Looking for concealed carry sidearms - ends up getting a full sized pistol because it holds 15+ rounds but then gets mad because it imprints and cast an outline.
6. Brings wife to look at a gun for her - gets mad when you explain that you want her to look at what she likes and what fits her, it's her gun not his.
Again, this isn't all men or women but for the individuals I've dealt with, 8 out of 10 will have a macho man or know it all mentality while 2 out of 10 will actually listen and take time to understand the safety guidelines and know what they're getting by simply picking up a sidearm, finger extended, and feeling the slide and trigger guard.
Stay safe, stay alert, and carry always.
**NOTE: This was submitted to us by someone who wishes to remain anonymous, due to what they have shared. However, they felt it was important to do so. Also, there are details, that may be disturbing to some readers.**
Let me start this off by stating some facts about what I’m going to share with you. I have purposely not included any links, sites, or potentially traceable facts from what your about to read, but for all intents and purposes the following account of what happened will be as accurate as possible. I have done this strictly to protect my family’s identities, after reading about what happened to me and my family hopefully you will understand why.
I know that a lot of you will dismiss this as propaganda or fiction after reading it, and even more of you won’t want to believe that anything like this could ever happen except for in a movie or a nightmare, and that’s fine, everyone is entitled to their own opinion and some things are just too hard to digest. I don’t even want to believe it or accept it sometimes, but that doesn’t stop it from haunting my thoughts, memories, and my nightmares. Even though this happened several years ago it is as fresh in my mind as if it happened yesterday. If any part of what your about to read disturbs you I am truly sorry.
I suffer from severe insomnia; I have ever since about high school, so I’m up during the night quite often and most of the time I lay on the couch so I won’t keep my wife awake. This night was no different, I found myself awake and unable to fall back sleep at about 3am, so I went out to the living room to quietly watch TV, being careful not to wake my wife who was three months pregnant, and my two daughters, ages 5 and 7. As I reached for the TV remote I thought that I heard voices or something odd outside my living room window, so as anyone would do I peeked out through the drapes to see if I was just hearing things, unfortunately I wasn’t. There were three people outside my house, and since I lived in a rural area I felt that something was terribly wrong. I grabbed the phone to dial 911 as I went to grab my pistol and wake my wife, the phone lines must have been cut because there was no dial tone and my cellphone was in my work truck. My heart sank and I felt helpless as I realized something terrible was about to happen and I couldn’t even call for help.
I quickly handed my wife the shotgun and had her barricade herself in our daughter’s room just as they started trying to kick in the front door. I crouched in the hall with my pistol and yelled for them to stay out of my house and that I had a gun, but it had no effect, it did not stop them, it had only alerted them to my general location in the house. After they gained entry they proceeded directly towards me, as soon as I saw someone round the corner entering into the hall I started shooting. Somehow I was able to strike two of them in the chest before a bullet struck me in the left shoulder. I hastily emptied the rest of magazine only to wound the third, but it was enough to make him miss with his remaining shots and flee. The pause had only lasted a second or two at most when I remember hearing shots from behind me just before I lost consciousness. A fourth person had come in the sliding glass door in the rear of the house during the shooting and had shot me three times in the back, as he attempted to kick in the door to my daughters room my wife shot through the door killing him instantly. After the first shots had been fired our closest neighbors had woke and had called 911, it took almost 25 minutes after everything was over for the state police to arrive, and almost 30 minutes for the medivac to arrive to save my life. Thirty minutes of my wife and two girls holding me thinking I was going to die. Thirty minutes of not knowing if it was over yet.
I spent six months in the hospital, four surgeries, and almost a year learning to walk again. My two girls have had years of therapy and still to this day have night terrors. My wife and I now still have a hard time sleeping, but are doing fine with our now three girls.
The man who fled wounded was arrested later that night in the hospital and upon further investigation was shown to be somewhat of a high ranking gang affiliate that was part of an ongoing investigation; he is currently serving three life sentences without the possibility of parole. That night was supposedly an initiation night for one of them according to the investigation that had followed. It was presumed that their plans were to subdue us, kill me, rape and kill my wife, possibly do the same to my two girls, and torch the house to cover their tracks. The one who was suspected of being initiated was a fourteen year old boy. He was pronounced dead at the scene with two others. I asked the investigating officer what I did to become targeted like this. His reply………nothing!
I was advised of the likelihood of retaliation for this incident, and because of who was involved no statement was given to any news or media outlet, even though my wife seems to remember something on our local news about it.
This has been the first time since that day that I have ever really shared this with anyone other than really close family and friends. I have decided to share this now because of what’s been happening in this country with the talk about gun control, and because a really good friend of mine told me that people really need to know what happened. Some of your comments even have me concerned about this country’s future and our safety. A lot of people think that guns are rarely ever used for self-defense, and maybe their right, maybe my instance was extremely rare, I really hope so. I couldn’t fathom the possibility that there could be more animals like those that forced their way into my home that night left in our society, but I’m unconvinced that there is not. Until the day comes that there is no evil left in this world, the good will need the proper tools to defend themselves against those who are evil. For those of you that have guns and/or carry, train and train as often as you can, even if it’s just training videos off the internet, and have your spouse and even your children train with you. For those of you that are for gun control, please make sure the laws you are pushing for will actually keep guns out of these animals hands and not inhibit law abiding citizens from defending their loved ones.
The media has saturated our nations culture for many years now with the indoctrination of the validation of feelings. It has gotten to the point where many people truly believe that they have a sacrosanct right to feel a certain way.
Furthermore, they believe that everyone else must not only be sympathetic and understand their personal emotion, but also submit to their will in order to validate that emotion. This was evidenced in 1993 when Dianne Feinstein told the Associated Press that, “Banning guns addresses a fundamental right of all Americans to feel safe”. It has also been a common catchphrase in the recent push for banning campus carry in states such as Texas.
The right to "feel" safe? Really? Where does someone find that particular right listed in our United States Constitution? Where exactly is it enumerated in our Bill of Rights?
Some go so far as to point to the Declaration of Independence as their basis for this right to feel safe. They read, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness" and disregard the fact that the emotion of happiness is not what is unalienable. What is unalienable is the pursuit of the emotion of happiness, in so far as it doesn't impede anyone else's pursuit of their own happiness. Even still, there is never any direct mention of the right to feel safe in that pursuit.
This misguided belief that safety is an emotion to be felt is not only completely unfounded, but it is also inherently dangerous as evidenced in the tragic events which continuously plague gun free zones.
People, striving to "feel" safe have created these "gun free" utopias by passing laws and regulations and hanging up plastic signage advising everyone who enters that, this particular area, is chalk filled with people who take their feelings more seriously than their responsibilities. The result of these delusional feel safe utopias has repeatedly, and regretfully, been the complete lack of adequate protection against someone who has evil intent.
It is obvious that the feeling of safety is not equivalent to the act of choosing to be prepared and being safe on purpose.
Those of us who take our personal safety as a responsibility, acquiring knowledge and ongoing training, as well as carrying the most efficient tools available, have a clear and constitutionally protected right to keep ourselves safe, regardless of the feelings of others. The Second Amendment states, "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." No where in that text does it say, "Well, unless it makes you feel uncomfortable. Then, never mind."
Obviously, there is no right to feel safe. Thankfully, there is a right to be safe. Your feelings are not protected by our United States Constitution. However, you absolutely do have the right to protect your life and thereby your ability to continue feeling the myriad of emotional experiences you encounter everyday.
I had the pleasure of being able to test out some steel targets that was generously given to me by shootsteel.com. I will be honest and tell you that this was the first time shooting at steel targets. And I am now addicted. Evan at shootsteel.com sent me two different target packages for me to test out. One was a 3/8” AR500 12'20' Static Target package and the other was a 9.6x20 package in the 5/16” surplus material.
The 12”x20” package includes the following from their website:
The static targets are cut to fit a 1/2” carriage bolt to be mounted to a steel post, 2x4 or other structure. The static targets are designed for centerfire handgun use, through small caliber rifles(up to 223) may be used as well. These are great targets for clubs, instructors and individuals.
The other package included the same things, except a different size static target. This second package was only rated for use of up to a .45acp. I used 3 different calibers when testing out these targets, 9mm, 40, and .45acp. I wanted to get a feel for how it handled all of them, even though they were rated to at least .45acp. I started with the 9mm and went from there.
When I received the package I was quite excited to open it out and check them out. It was quite heavy considering all the things that were included in each package. I took out each piece and set the items for each package together so that I was able to get them set up. Setup of the targets wasn't too difficult. All that was needed to put them together was a 2x4. I purchased a 10ft long 2x4 and then cut it in half so I had one for each target. Once together, I just needed a nice enough day to go and test them out. So the day came, and we headed out to a friend's place and got things all set up. Setup was super quick as they targets were already put together and while heavy, not too difficult to pack up and bring them to the location.
The first ting of the first bullet hitting the target was awesome. From that first ting, I was hooked. Excitement aside, the targets held up well to each of the calibers. There was minimal damage/impact made on either of the targets. The bases that the 2x4 was attached to was heavy enough that there was no concern of the targets falling over while shooting. The hanger for the target with its spring was great as there was give to absorb the force of the bullet. Over the course of testing there were probably 100 rounds used overall.
Overall, I thought the targets were great quality and would definitely recommend that you check them out and consider purchasing from them. They have a variety of sizes, packages, target stands, parts, etc available on their website. They even have reactive and airsoft/pellet targets.
I want to say thank you again to Evan for hooking me up with these targets to test out. Can't wait to go shoot steel again!
